Michael was delightful to have as our chef, along with his sous chef Stephen, the right amount of fun with a good dose of professionalism. The food was very good, and we would recommend him for private functions.Nov 20, 2017VerifiedPrivato Chef Services's reply
Thanks for the review, Alex! It was great working with you, Anne and the rest of the ladies this weekend. Hopefully we can work together again on your next trip to AZ!
This was a gift, so I didn’t experience it myself but my Dad (the birthday boy) said the food was “sumptuous” and the dessert had his three favorite food groups: chocolate, ice cream, and raspberries. My mom said that the food was good and the Chef was “gracious and had a fun fun personality.” So that sounds pretty good to me. She also said, “I’m trying to watch this show, are we done now?” So... 5 stars.Jan 25, 2018VerifiedPrivato Chef Services's reply
