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!!

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.

Chef Woody is a class act - I trust him and will continue to support/refer him to my peers in the government and military spaces. The food was extremely fresh, the presentation was nice and everyone enjoyed their experience. You won't be disappointed - five stars!

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 !

Christopher R. Deats - Dec 17, 2018

We hired Troy Dye to prepare a 4 course dinner for my sister's 50th birthday. We couldn't have been happier. The food was amazing. Even the salad had a ton of flavor and the crab bisque impressed even this group of Marylanders (we tend to be snobbish about crab preparations). The beef tenderloin and vegetables were so very creative and delicious that even the picky kids loved it. The banana pudding was out of this world. They were prompt, professional, and left my kitchen cleaner than it was when they arrived. I highly recommend this company.

Chef Les was fantastic. He gave us a perfect evening and a unique and wonderful meal. We highly recommend him. He is very flexible in how he arranges plans for the meal and prompt with all communications. A couple of the courses included food prepared as we had not tried before, and the dishes were delicious.

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 Khy was phenomenal to work with! Short notice and all for a New Year dinner. Everything was far more than what we anticipated! A diverse selection was presented to us in her proposal which immediately gave excitement in advance. She was personable, punctual, and professional throughout the entire experience. Her passion and flare comes through in her food. What was delivered during the 4-courses was layered with an indescribable array of flavors that prompted us to inquire about every dish. Chef Khy was enjoyable!

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.

Michael Cliffe - Jan 29, 2019

5/ 5

Had a great experience working with Chef Jason. He was very accommodating with our menu, responsive, and polite. He made our private dinner for 8 people a wonderful experience. Not only was the food delicious, but Chef Jason was very respectful. Definitely will have him again for a future dinner!

Woody was personable, funny, very sweet and well engaged! I would hire him again for sure! Excellent definition of a professional black man! I was well pleased and enjoyed the experience

Chelsea McCoy - Jun 23, 2020

5/ 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.
