Rob was amazing! Polite and engaging from the start, he made the perfect menu for our date night based on our feedback. He was extremely responsive leading up to the night, and more than delivered in the kitchen! The food was incredibly delicious and interesting, and he moved at our once and made sure to explain everything. Highly recommend Rob!!

Our Chef, Jason Meyer, was on time and professional. We felt very comfortable with him in our home. All of our dishes were delicious and presented very well. We really enjoyed our evening, since we could not go to a restaurant at this time! Chef Jason made our evening very special! We would do this again!

We had the pleasure of working with Gordon for a special Valentine's Day dinner. From initial proposal through making modifications to the menu for some dietary restrictions and preferences, Gordon was quick to reply and provided great suggestions. The whole process was very simple - agree to menu and time and then sit back and get served an amazing, 5-star meal prepared in your kitchen. Gordon brings everything he needs and was completely self-sufficient in our kitchen. The tomato & avocado bruschetta was so delicious, the bang bang shrimp cooked perfectly, the fresh pesto he prepared was outstanding, our sea bass cooked to perfection and the desserts were to die for. All the food was outstanding with his sauces and seasoning being both unique and special. We recommend Gordon to anyone looking to have an amazing, special and stress-free meal!

Chef Michael was great, he’s a very nice and personable guy who prepares the best food we have ever tasted. He was neat, respectful of our home and family and cleaned up without a problem. We highly recommend him to anyone willing to try out his cuisine. He’s very flexible and will work with you taste and food preferences. You will not be disappointed !

It was a great experience. Facundo was extremely professional. His dishes were great. Overall, a very pleasant chef and he was available to answer questions ahead of time and help make the evening special - particularly since it was last minute.

I submitted my request for a private dinner at our rented home in Paris for Christmas night dinner. I received 4 responses and through a couple of back and forth Q&A's with the chefs, we chose Chef Laura. Laura was patient with my extensive questions and deliberations about the menu and provided answers that made me feel comfortable with the menu she would prepare for the 11 of us. Laura arrived right on time at our Paris apartment with someone to help her as we discussed. She even was ready to serve 30 min earlier than discussed despite a kitchen that lacked some space, dishes, and cookware. It was clear she had done a lot of prep work. She served a 6 course meal to some particular eaters and wow'd every person with every dish. The plating was attractive and the explanations were clear, but most importantly all of the food was delicious. She left our kitchen spotless when she left. It is nerve-wracking planning a special dinner from the other side of the globe, but Laura made it easy. I would hire her again in a minute!

Chef Kim provided us (6 people) an experience that will no doubt be unforgettable! He was on time, efficient, and the food was to die for. His presentation was beautiful, and he took extra care for dietary restrictions. We booked an Italian menu, and each course was delectable. We will definitely book him again in the future, and recommend him to all! An exquisite experience - hands down best meal of 2020! Thank you, Chef Kim!

Chef Robert cooked for me and my girlfriend on a very special night for us, when I proposed to my fiance, Penny. It was a strange circumstance to put Robert in, but he was the perfect personality to ensure that our evening went flawlessly. I would highly recommend Chef Robert.

The dinner last night was well beyond expectations. Chef Jason was great. Every course was delicious. The courses were the right size, neither too big nor small, so you were always anticipating the next one. Jason served us at a nice pace. We loved Chef Jason, not only was he an excellent cook, but he was also a genuinely nice guy. We had good conversation with him all night and we insisted he sit with us for dessert. It was a great idea and a very memorable night.

We had a fabulous evening with Gordon, who prepared 4 delicious courses for our group. Before the day he was very efficient with his replies, and open to creating a menu that fit our needs perfectly. The day of, he was punctual and talked us through all of the menu, which tasted delicious. I would highly recommend Gordon to anyone who would like to use his services.

Indy Rees - Feb 24, 2020

4.7/ 5

Absolutely tremendous! Not only did he create wonderful dishes that fit the theme of the event, but he gave some great advice on how to make the event even better. When I had questions he was super responsive, and he has done and seen it all, so he had all of the answers. Also gave a great recommendation on a mixologist who was fabulous as well. After dinner he was very amiable and sociable with all of our guests - felt like he was just one of our group (in a good way). Could not recommend him more.
