Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!

Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc

We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.

We hired Chef Mumsie to provide a special Birthday treat for our Mom. We ask her to prepare two dinners a week and deliver them for a period of two weeks. The food is spectacular! Chef Mumsie's attention to detail, personal touch and caring nature make for an exquisite dinning experience. She even delivered the first dinner herself. Our Mom got a kick out of seeing her in her tall chef hat. We have decided to extend our contract, as our Mom is enjoying having this treat to look forward to. Her only complaint is that the food is so good, she can't stop eating! I would highly recommend Chef Mumsie for your next event or need for a personal chef.

I had a wedding and many of my guests were raving about the food and were talking about how great the service was. There was plenty of alcohol to go around so the fact that people remember how great the food was, that speaks for itself.The bartenders were great and the waiters were very attentive. The food will definitely be something to remember about during my wedding. Thanks Faisal!

So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

I've hired Belle Fete many times over the years for various events, all with different budgets and needs. The food quality is always exceptional and highly creative. As an artist, I especially appreciate David's talent. It is one of the reasons that sets him apart from so many other chefs. I prefer to work with people who provide unexpected and unique solutions, who think 'outside the box'. I have referred Belle Fete many times and will continue to do so.

On Feb 1, 2018, Chef Amy performed her private chef services at my girlfriend’s birthday party with our teenage daughter. Amy curated a delicious 5-course menu based on our favorites. She prepared the food in new fun beautiful ways. Amy was funny, approachable and professional. She brought all needed cooking and serving ware. She cooked and cleaned up everything. Amy explained and presented every course of the meal and prepared unique never seen before drinks that were a huge hit! The food portions in each course were just right and completely filling. Amy clearly loves cooking and enjoys interacting with clients. Amy was sooo good by evenings end that we were singing to our throw-back music playlist and hugging her goodbye with anticipation of a future event. I definitely plan to hire Amy many more times in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- 5 STARS

Greg is an outstanding chef and a wonderful person. He delivered a 5-course dinner that was out of this world, and entertained the guests with his bright personality and deep knowledge of food. We hired Greg for a private birthday celebration for my girlfriend, and it was the most special experience we've ever had together. Period. Greg helped us decide on dishes based on my girlfriend's preferences (as he says, do's and don'ts), and wow, he delivered above and beyond our expectations. Each course was meticulously thought out and executed. By the end of the dinner, all of our guests wanted his contact information. If you want a private chef that will deliver an outstanding meal and experience, go with Greg.

Shelley was an excellent professional from the moment we made contact. I was looking for a fun, team-building exercise as part of a staff retreat, and I would absolutely recruit Shelley for any future activity with our staff. Admittedly, I am not a vegan, plant-based person...so when I first saw her focus, I was a little hesitant. Our staff also are mostly omnivores. We aren't too picky but I knew we would be tired after a long day together. When I talked about our objectives and she put a proposed menu together (and also explained that we wouldn't have access to any kitchen or heat sources)...even I became excited about the evening and the food! I'll say that when we told our staff the "surprise" activity, they were more excited about her class than about the fact that we were going to spend the entire next day at Knott's Berry Farm! Shelley was early to the site, set up quickly, dove right in and immediately got us making a dish that would get food into our tummies after a long day of our staff retreat so that we wouldn't be "hangry." She "read" our group dynamic with a slick expertise and moved at a pace that kept us engaged. When she taught us knife skills, we were able to laugh and learn together in a memorable way. She had a plan for four courses, including dessert, but by the time we got to our third course -- rolling our own sushi -- everyone was literally rolling on our own because we were SO FULL. Most people in our group had never rolled or made their own sushi so they were thrilled for the experience. Dessert was perfect because it was light -- mango with yogurt. Our staff LOVED this experience. They asked if we could do this again and work with Shelley again at some point in the future. I would happily hire her back to create more memories for us and more yummy foods and teach us more great culinary skills. Thank you, Shelley!

Sydney's cooking speaks for itself. Everything she has prepared has been absolutely phenomenal. What stands out beyond her cooking skills is her passion. Sydney takes great pride in what she does from start to finish, beginning with top notch ingredients and ending with creative presentation. She never misses a thing and always pays attention to the small details. Cooking is not just a job for Sydney, it's her passion in life. She's a perfectionist and holds herself to the highest standard. I couldn't of asked for a better personal chef and highly recommend her for any type of event!

Amazing surprise dinner for my wife. I wanted to do something special and have never hired a private chef before. Nikki was great! She helped me plan the entire evening. The menu was perfect and she even helped me set the mood by creating the most romantic setting ever. I could never have done this by myself and wife absolutely loved it!
