Most importantly though, our chef, Robert Ritchie was fabulous. It was my first experience using takeachef - and I've told a few friends about it already. I will definitely use this again and thank you & Chef Robert very much!

Shawn was great, innovative given the short notice and having to work with someone else's menu. Great attitude, and professional appearance and approach. He was very attentive and produced a great quality meal. The ladies loved the food and service and it was all around a great time.
I have been a restaurateur for 25+ years but did not want to use one of my chefs. It was a risk well taken. Matthew is a fine chef. His food knowledge, enthusiasm and taste was out of this world. I had 10 foodies at my home for a Surprise Bday party. I think I was the most surprised at what a fine meal we had. Many of the guests commented that it was one of the best meals they have ever had anywhere. Matt took the time to build a menu that suited the crowd. He also took the time to meet up. He stayed in touch prior to the evening to coordinate details of our night. We even all made gnocchi with him. (a special cooking class treat) I I would like to tell you about my favorite course but literally every course was better than the next; ending with the belle noir dessert which I can still taste. I will use this service again and hope that Matt will be available.
We chose a Chef à Domicilio for the bachelorette party of my best friend. She was very pleased with the experience. Everyone thought the same!
I have already tried two Chefs in Almeria and I have to admit that both are great. In this case, I would highlight the elaboration of the dishes. Amazing

We had such a great dinner with Chef Damon! Would definitely try Take a Chef again.
Congratulations on such good service! I have become your very own commercial, I cannot recommend you enough.

We were not sure at first if having a chef at home would be uncomfortable, but on the contrary, Elena was super discreet and attentive from the get go. A great experience.
