I wanted to surprise my guests and I certainly did. The mushroom risotto and truffle was spectacular.

Chef Anthony was excellent! Professional but personable. Food was delicious and gorgeous. This was a great experience we would definitely do again
Chef Ortega was great. The food was delicious and was just what we needed after a long day on the slopes!
Kelton cooked Easter dinner for my family during our vacation to Amsterdam. He brought Kiersten to assist with wine and service, and they served what was argueably the best meal we’ve ever had. They were pros - on time, clean, friendly, and most importantly - Kelton was a phenomenal chef. Our food was unbelievable, and every course was so good that we each had our own favorites. The carrot & ginger soup was notably loved by all, but the burrata salad was my personal favorite. It was a perfect experience from start to finish, and one that we’ll remember for years to come.
Chef Mark Ocean and his partner were excellent. I’ve never hired a private chef before so if you’re looking for a special menu for either a romantic night or a group dinner I highly suggest using take a chef!
At first it was a bit strange to have a stranger in our kitchen, but we soon connected with Toni and the both the dinner and evening were incredible. The food was spectacular, especially the risotto…
Thomas was fabulous to work with and our meal was amazing. He communicated quickly and thoroughly. I couldn't choose between the 3 main options so he gave us smaller amounts of all three!! I would HIGHLY recommend him. His assistant cancelled at the last minute so he had to do all of it himself but the meal still moved smoothly.
