Greg prepared a spectacular meal for us on my 26th birthday! I highly recommend him to others wanting a personal chef. It was like having a high end restaurant chef in our own comfort of our house. He really went above and beyond what we expected, not only with presentation but with every bit of information he provided as to how he preps the prime-aged filet mignon etc and where he got all his fresh produce! He Exceeded all of our expectations. Highly communicative, very accommodating and amazingly delicious food. I Highly recommend chef GREG You won’t regret it!

I decided to plan a birthday dinner for a dear friend. We had checked for a suitable restaurant with nothing available we decided to have a in home dinner which morphed into a private chef prepared meal. After looking over numerous profiles supplied by Thumbtack I decided on Greg Akahoshi. I was attracted to his local location and he was the "Chef" with a staff of one. After consulting with Greg about the menu. He made recommendations which were all excellent modifications to the original menu. A time line was established. Greg contacted the host location for arrival time, kitchen usage etc. He contacted me to confirm the the date, time and location and of course the menu for 4 people. Let me sum up the reaction of the 4 guests: Amazing, incredible, fantastic and EXTRAORDINARY. Starting with the appetizers which included a Lump Crab dip and a Avocado with Smoked Trout guacamole, followed by a Greg's Caesar Salad........the flavors were fresh, new and so tasty. The main course was a Filet Mignon accompanied by Maine Lobster. We all were so impressed by the tenderness and how succulent both were. The desert was as decadent as any desert I have ever had. Needless to say Greg is as talented a chef. His culinary skills are far superior than I had hoped for. Polite, informative and a real people person. I have no reservations strongly recommending him. He will be doing my next Chef prepared meal.

Chef Akahoshi more than exceeded our expectations. Right from the beginning Chef was amazing. He genuinely cares about making your event one you will remember forever. Our entire group of 16 people were blown away by not only the quality of the meal, but also the way Chef and his staff made everyone feel comfortable and included in the entire process. I highly recommend chef to everyone I know looking for a one of a kind experience. Thank you Chef, we will for sure see you again!

Chef Greg was very attentive to what we wanted. He called, we put together a menu. He was on time. he uses great ingredients. The dinner went fantastic. Some of the sauces he created where (MMMMMMM) He served each course, explaining what he was giving us. He left our kitchen the same way he found it. And, on top of that he is very personable, which is a great added plus. Would recommend the Chef to anyone looking on having a great meal cooked by a great chef.

Chef Greg was WONDERFUL to work with. With just a couple days notice, he developed a delicious menu for a group with diverse palates and meal preferences. He's easy going and flexible. We truly enjoyed him and will undoubtedly request him again.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I always purchase the finest ingredients available and will never compromise quality for price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I do not have set menus, I'd rather discuss the do's and dont's and tailor a menu suitable for every guest.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a child, I would always help my mother in the kitchen and be in awe with her food. She shared her love for food with me and although she passed away many years ago my mother continues to inspire me.
