Best meal & service I have ever experienced. Could have eaten fillet with a spoon. It was that tender. You can't go wrong with Chef Ray Franklin. Cleaned up after meal was exceptional. From 1 to 10 he is a 20.

Girl Friday sent me a quote via Thumbtack to cater meals for a two day seminar that I was hosting on the campus of the UAB medical center. I needed breakfast, breaks and lunch for 100 attendees over the two days. Her quote was very reasonable and a follow-up phone call with her made up my mind to confirm with her. She was very professional but also warm and accommodating. I have been hosting meetings for 14 years and more often than not, the caterers arrive late when due to deliver food. Not so here! She was waiting for us to unlock doors at 6:30 a.m. for a 7:30 a.m. breakfast! She set everything up very neatly, did not forget a thing. I requested boxed sandwich meals for lunch and the rolls she used were really good, meals nicely packed with all supplies needed, from condiments to cookies. She delivered plenty of food and no-one went hungry on her watch! Thank You to Girl Friday! Do yourself a favor and hire her!

Chef Raquel's food and service is without parallel! EVERYONE loved the food at both my rehearsal dinner and my wedding reception, and honestly, her prices were AMAZING! Weddings are expensive as it is, and to top it all off my husband wanted a sit down dinner for our guests. I didn't think it would be possible after speaking to several caterers around town, until I found Chef Raquel. She was wonderful in discussing our options and with her unbeatable prices, we were actually able to have the sit down dinner the hubs wanted. Our venue normally does their own catering, but when I told them what Chef Raquel was offering, her price and that we would only use their venue if they let us bring our own caterer....they couldn't even match it and didn't argue. Also, yes, we legit were choosing our venue on whether we could bring our own caterer. That's how awesome of a deal it was. The staff was fabulous, the food excellent (soooo many compliments from happy guests, still hearing about it 3 weeks later), the presentation gorgeous and the professionalism top notch. Also, Chef Raquel was on top of everything! I could email, text or call her anytime and she'd have the answer. I honestly could not be happier that we found Chef Raquel for our wedding. I was bragging on her BEFORE the wedding, I was bragging on her DURING the reception, and I am STILL singing her praises. You will NOT go wrong hiring her. BEST wedding day choice we made.

Hello Chef Shaun, I just wanted to send you my compliments and those of some of my leadership team who attended our retreat and were spoiled by your fantastic culinary skills. First my comments: We have been doing these leadership retreats for about 6 years now and each year I try and do something extra special for my team to make the experience memorable. Along with a 4000 sq. ft. house overlooking the Ocean in San Diego, last year we hired a “personal chef” and had a fairly good experience. Nothing to write home about but it was nice to have that touch. However this year you knocked the cover off the ball! What an amazing dining experience for everyone! From the Filets and asparagus with béarnaise sauce to the Ribs with several different styles of bar-b-que sauce (loved the Jalapeño kick) to the beer can chicken and Chile Lime Fritters (WOW!) and the Lemon Tarts were out of this world. My team was over the moon with the service and the food. Flying you out to Lake Tahoe to feed us was the best “upgrade decision” I made for this year’s retreat. Of course now you have set the bar so high, I’ll have to fly you out to our next annual event. Fabulous job! Here are a couple more feedback comments from some of my leadership team: From my executive Assistant Kara: I was really impressed with every single meal Shaun produced, every dish was a step beyond awesome and clearly something special (BEST ribs EVER). And he catered to our large group with such an easy and relaxed manner! So both his presence and his meals were an utter delight. From my programming Specialist Tiffany: " Oh where do I start? Chef Shaun's food was incredible. Every single meal prepared by him from appetizers to dessert was not only delicious but plated beautifully. He was as cool as a cucumber in the kitchen but engaging and willing to answer all of my food questions. 'How come my ribs never turn out like that?!' Can Shaun come to every company retreat? Seriously." -Tiffany Troutman, Program Specialist. And from Barbara Thomsen our Director of Client Services: What a delight to have our own personal chef for our ShowSeeker retreat! What I liked most about Chef Shaun was his calm demeanor while preparing fabulous meals! He was so quiet you wouldn’t have even known he was there, yet all of a sudden we would have these fully prepared courses delivered to the table. Standouts for me: the chimichurri sauce Wednesday night; the filet mignon, so tender with crisp asparagus and a heavenly béarnaise sauce and the chocolate lava cake; fall-off-the-bone ribs with a delicious spicy yet sweet sauce. I hope to have Chef Shaun back to prepare more meals for us! Barbara Thanks again Shaun for a truly “Top Shelf” experience. Warm Regards, Dave Hardy Founder and CEO

Awesome learning experience and a great meal. You'll be surprised to find out how much money you can save by learning to roll your own sushi. Even if you still prefer to pay someone else to do it, you'll learn the language you need to know when eating sushi at restaurants, and you might be surprised at what you'll learn. Chef Kelly is the best.

I hired Jonathan Moore to prepare meals for my daughter several nights per week. He was very courteous and helpful when we initially met to plan out the logistics and timing of the meal deliveries and was even more helpful with menu planning for her. He took her suggestions and incorporated his ideas into the meals. My daughter has had nothing but good things to say about the quality and tste of the meals and the ease that she has had working with him. He was very conscious of cost, something that is not easy to do when preparing meal for only one person, but did not skimp on quality in doing so. I would highly recommend him as a personal chef and look forward to working with him again in the future.

If you are gluten free, then you know how hard it is to find a decent meal that won't make you sick. Let alone, one made with fresh, healthy ingredients. Eat Well covers all these bases. I almost cried when I had the gluten free "hot chicken" sandwich. I hadn't had fried chicken in years. So delicious! My new "go to" when I don't want to cook!
