Chef Pete cooked the most delicious food of any caterer we've ever had. He prepared a traditional southern style meal that blew everyone's socks off. He arrived on time, cooked in my kitchen and whisked all the dirty dishes away at the end.

Details: Holiday party • Dinner • American - casual • Buffet • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • 20 - 29 guests • Serving and warming equipment • Premium (high end ingredients)

Chef Pete catered our wedding and we received so many compliments on the food. He was incredible throughout the planning process (we originally scheduled for Aug 2020, but... COVID). He was so easy about rescheduling and when we ended up hiring a coordinator to help with the wedding, he continued to be easy to work with and it was such a painless process overall. He also made sure to serve special plates to our vegan guests, and they were pleased with the food. He exceeded our expectations, and we couldn't have been happier with his service.

Details: Wedding • Dinner • Barbecue • Buffet • Yes, full service • Banquet hall or ballroom • Yes, full kitchen • 100 - 124 guests • Standard (basic ingredients)

Chef Pete made my mom's 89th birthday spectacular! His crew created upscale and decorative displays of drink and food that paralleled Pete's culinary expertise. We were all so impressed by the local fish that he waited for that morning and brought to our party from Bodega Bay. He sourced beautiful and vibrant produce. I wasn't so organized, but Pete rolled with it, and accommodated last minute menu changes. Our friends and family raved about his food, and my fear of not enough food was quieted by his careful planning. He's the real deal trained chef - not someone who cooks for a weekend hobby. As he was the prior banquet chef for Meadowood Resort, he easily and masterfully handled our group of 55. He even provided individual serving tongs for each guest going thru the buffet line. Truly impressive and well thought. Thanks Chef Pete for creating such a memorable event for us.

Details: Birthday or anniversary party • Lunch • American - casual • Buffet • Yes, full service • Outdoor venue • Yes, full kitchen • 50 - 59 guests • Premium (high end ingredients)

When we looked at the reviews, many of which were 5 stars, we thought did we score and what will the quality of food would be given that due to timing we could not do a tasting. Chef Coleman stated that we would not be disappointed in light of his high level rating (not in condescending way … but more of a trust me). Even though we hired him, we still were wondering if the reviews were legitimate and/or realistic. Well, all I can say is that the reviews are more than legit because we are adding our 5 star review. Chef Coleman was responsive and happily adjusted the Private Chef Menu for our wedding reception that was reflective of the bounty of the local fresh and organic produce, seafood, meat and poultry. The people who attended our reception is still raving about the 5 course dinner in addition to the many different appetizers. However, putting the dinner together did not come without trial and tribulations that Chef Coleman had to deal with July 30th. He had to overcome the high 90 degree heat even at 5pm which a precipitated a rolling blackout that affected our reception location as well as the surrounding area. This power failure for a good hour and a half occurred right in the heart of preparing dinner. With his skills he was able to pivot and adjust as needed until power came back on. It did not affect the quality of the dinner. His crew was phenomenal in the wine service, dinner and the cleanup of the private residence that our reception was held at. I now have a go to Chef for further events. Thank you so much Chef for making our special day even more special, Robert and Cecilia
