Chef Tony was amazing! Our office took a much needed vacation at an Airbnb and we Chef Tony made us lunch and dinner. He came over a couple of hours before lunch to prepare and cook/grill everything and then came cleaned up and left for a few hours. He came back with a couple of hours later and did the same for dinner. The food was incredible! We were a party of 6 and everyone agreed this is the best lunch and dinner we ever had. Chef Tony's creativity and attention to detail surpasses what I have experienced in any 5 star restaurant. I can't wait for another opportunity to see what Chef Tony will create. I defintely recommend give California Dining! You will not be disappointed!

Details: Brunch / dinner party • 6 - 10 guests • Lunch • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Italian • American - casual • Mexican / Latin American • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Tony was great to work with from start to finish! He arrived on time, his cost estimates were spot on to what he projected at the end and the menu options were great.. His food was delicious, hot, well plated with quality ingredients and custom to what we asked for. He and his team were very friendly, fun, courteous, accommodating and professional. We would certainly hire him again!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 3 - 5 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - casual • American - formal • Italian • Southern • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I hired Chef Tony to cook dinner for my wife's birthday, he responded quickly but after the initial response he missed two scheduled calls with me and that was okay because we connected later, however, I feel like he pulled a switch and bait. He didn't come to cook the dinner but sent a different chef (who was lovely) but he never mentioned that he wouldn't be the one cooking the dinner, I had hired him after reading the reviews about what a great chef he was but I got a completely different chef, he also had the wrong date printed on our menu which was a little embarrassing for our guests to see unfortunately I will not be using or referring to California Dining in the future.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • American - formal • Asian • Italian • Gluten free or celiac • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Annette, I do apologize the terrible inconvenience. I do look forward to being able to make it up to you if you are up for it. I will try and set up a phone call so we can make sure you get the experience you deserve. Once again I apologize for such a terrible experience.
