Man these guys were awesome! Every aspect of their customer service was without flaw. From the email correspondence to the personal chefs at the event who interacted with my guests. I had an outdoor event that required serving and cooking the food outside for 100 people. I had very nice food options, steak with bearnaise, BBQ chicken, ribs and several sides. I wish I would have gone more casual, as the the gourmet menu really needs and indoor kitchen to reach its full potential. This was my flaw, just a tip for those considering their own menu. I would recommend them to anyone. Wonderful!

Everything went well. Great experience. Everyone loved it. The chefs were great and intermingled with the staff and attorneys. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Plus the food was outstanding.

I was in Scottsdale for a girl's weekend and wanted to host a private, casual dinner party for my guests. Since there was only 6 of us I was worried about finding a great chef. My worries were for naught once I contacted Unique Luxury Catering! Steve and Carol Ann called me as soon as I had emailed and within the day, we had planned a southwest inspired dinner, complete with chef made margaritas! They confirmed all the arrangements two days before and Chef Ezra arrived at the appointed time, ready to go. The food and drinks did not disappoint (!) and better yet, he took care of all the clean up, including wrapping up some great left overs! I give Unique Luxury Catering 5 stars all around!

We had a family reunion of 15. Chef Jim provided not only a menu worthy of a 5 star restaurant but turned the entire evening into a gourmet food show complimented with printed menu, detailed verbal description of each dish being served and fabulous table service. Our 5 course dinner was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone. Chef jim and his assistant also dressed the part! By the time he left, the kitchen was sparkling clean and in perfect order. We will definitely use his services again. Paul M

I used Sandra for a surprise bday present for my wife, just the two of us. I had never used a private chef before and was afraid to once I started interviewing because they would push what they knew how to cook and I wasn't sure I was being listened to. Sandra was the opposite. She never forced anything, she just listened to what I wanted and then sent me a menu that was exactly what I had envisioned and more. The one other criteria I had and told Sandra was I wanted a meal that my wife could not compare to any restaurant. I wanted something unique that tastes so good, it was incomparable. And she delivered! In the end, the food was amazing, the menu consisted of a lobster appetizer, amazing arugula salad just the way we like it, a filet like none other for me and salmon with pineapple and mango that my wife loved and couldn't compare to any restaurant, and for my wife (a huge dessert lover) Sandra made both "berries in heaven" (absolutely amazing) and a chocolate fondant (equally amazing)! I cannot express enough that Sandra was the perfect choice, delivered an amazing meal, provided incredible service, and was just a pleasure to have in our house and even more of a pleasure to eat her food! We are now planning on using her on an on-going basis because how could you not?! Better than restaurant quality food, amazing service, highly competitive pricing, and all with the convenience of being in your own home! What an amazing experience! So, to make a long review short, just hire her, you won't be sorry!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Sasha went above and beyond. She was very easy to work with, accommodating, and just the right price too. She helped me to plan a surprise cake decorating birthday party for my Mom. I'm up in Wyoming and she was able to even bring some extra supplies (wrapped cute too) as a gift. It made the day very very special. I know I will hearing about this day for years!! And seriously, what a fun treat to have a personal chef in your home?!

Chef Stacey catered an ASU graduation party for 15 people at a private home, and did an excellent job. We are from out of state and it was nerve-wracking to hire a caterer sight unseen, but Stacey put me at ease, coordinated beforehand, arrived on time, and presented a beautiful spread of delicious food. She is excellent at details - the skewers had little curled ends; the cucumbers in the veggie tray were scalloped; the artichoke dip was homemade. I paid for a higher-end appetizer buffet and she did not scrimp on quality in her food choices. As one of many examples, the fruit plate didn't have just "the usuals," but included some higher end fruits such as blackberries and raspberries. The meat and cheese tray was similarly high-end. Desserts were beautifully displayed and delicious. The quantity was very generous and we were able to offer some extra food to my daughter's college-student friends on their way out. Highly Recommend!

We had a great 87th birthday party for my mother-in-law in out rental home in Scottsdale with Anna as our personal chef. She was very easy to communicate with, arrived exactly on time, her dinner was fabulous and she didn't stress out when the ovens were not working properly. Anna stayed extra time since the dinner took longer to cook and she was a great sport. I highly recommend her.

Chef Christine made our Mother's 90th birthday celebration amazing!! She made a special Spanish Tapas menu in keeping with our Spanish theme. We began with a spectacular Summer Artisan Cheese Board; then Spanish Potato Bombas; Shrimp Tapas w/Mango Shooters; Chimichurri Pork and Chicken Skewers; Marinated Flank Steak Crostini and ending with Bananas Foster Vanilla Bean Tempura Ice Cream with Caramel Sauce. Are you hungry yet? Best of all Chef Christine set up; cooked; served and cleaned up. Hiring a personal chef was genius. Christine was prompt, professional and personable. We were extremely impressed and will be using her again in the future. The Kriz Family

We had our annual St. Patrick's Day Luncheon, I have to say I was a bit nervous. But instead it turned out to be the greatest experience, everything was here on time, everyone raved about the food that was served especially the corned-beef, the Shepard's pie and Lasagna was also a great hit. THANK YOU Gracie Parker Fine American Cuisine for a great experience, I would recommend you to everyone who asks about catering services.

The process from start to end was seamless. Chef met with us and listened to our ideas and designed a totally custom menu just for our event. His food was tasty and the presentation was amazing. The staff was professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Chef Giancarlo's services to anyone looking for a caterer. You won't be disappointed.
