Chef Davin created a delicious Mexican menu for my son's Rehearsal Dinner. He was professional, easy to work with, very personable and the food was excellent! I highly recommend him! Thanks Chef Davin!!Jul 25, 2017Verified
I put together a surprise intimate dinner party to celebrate my best friend's 40th and her cousin's 50th. Chef Davin created a Southern BBQ cuisine with a contemporary twist. It was delicious! My entire party of 13 was raving about how great the food and service was. From the appetizers to the main course, we all wanted more!! Not only was Chef Davin great with the creation of the menu, he was indeed very helpful in helping me plan out the dinner. He was also very accommodating with the date and time as well to make sure the surprise went well. I would recommend him to any and everyone who needs a chef for their event. He is thoughtful in what he cooks and puts his clients needs first. Thanks again Chef Davin!!!Aug 18, 2017Verified
ONE WORD FOR DAVIN... AMAZING! His food and customer service was out of this world! He was extremely accommodating to everything we needed (and my ever changing menu needs)! He put a lot of thought and effort into the brunch and if anyone is in the Florida area, you should contact him immediately! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!Aug 20, 2017
My wife and our friends decided to hire a chef for our last night on vacation and man are we glad we did! Chef Davin's 4-course fusion menu met and exceeded all our expectations! Being from New York I must admit I can be hard to impress but was in no way disappointed with Davin's unique & tasty flavor combinations! His rosemary- coconut sorbet palette cleanser was just one of many highlights from our evening! Bravo Chef!Jun 14, 2017Chef Davin Rodriguez (Chef Davin Inc.)'s reply
I love when I cook for people that just get it! John, thanks again for allowing me to play & create with your menu! Your group was amazing and I'll be sure to try out those wine reccomendations you gave me! Let me know when you've tried out that secret Korean spot! Safe travels my friend!
