Great food and great experience. The two chefs working our holiday party couldn't have been kinder or more patient. Everyone loved the food, and the boss told me after they left that she would like to bring them back again next year. Thank you for a lovely experience!

We hired Albert for my birthday party to do a progressive dinner. It was spectacular. He is a very engaging person who is passionate about his work. His food is beautiful, like works of art with unique combinations of flavors we had not tasted before. He spent hours prior to arrival slow cooking several dishes. He is not a caterer, he is a master artist personal chef!

I had a great experience hiring Jon for my New Year's party. He arrived on time and quickly prepared a round of every dish while the guests were coming, so that it was ready at the time that everyone was there. As the food was eaten, he and Amanda presented more, so no dish was ever empty. I found his work of excellent quality, and he was very personable and friendly. My New Year's party was a success because of Chef Jon Avalos. Highly recommended!

I requested for a pastry chef to make cookies and cupcakes for the Super Bowl- Keri sent me a quote and made amazing goodies! I wanted them to be Seahawks themed and she hand decorated all of the cookies with their logo. Everyone loved them and the cookies were way bigger than expected. Thanks again!

This was my first time using a personal chef, so I was a bit timid. Chef Kwasi made this an enjoyable experience through enhanced communication and superb professionalism. You can taste the passion in his cooking, his meal surpassed all expectations. His presentation was an art rarely seen. He was well prepared with all needed equipment, and even cleaned up before leaving. I highly recommend Chef Kwasi for any personal or professional cooking needs.

Chef Bill was amazing. He made an incredible steak dinner for me and a small group of my closest friends. He was courteous over the phone, very helpful with creating the menu, and of course the food was top-notch. I thought hiring a private chef would require a ton of planning, but he made it so simple. I would go to him again in a heartbeat!

Les Marguerites est magnifique! Sergio was responsive and came up with menu options in our price range that were outstanding, including options for kids with nut allergies. The food--from the rillettes and salade frisée aux lardons to thé chicken galantine was excellent, as good as any French restaurant I've had here or in France. The poached pear tart for desert is the best I've had. Les Marguerites offers great, personalized service with outstanding, simply delicious food!
