We gave a big 40th birthday party for our son and wanted everything to be fantastic for him, our family, and all of our friends. We didn't know what a perfect choice we made when we hired Chef Marcel! We cannot say enough good things about Chef Marcel, his staff, and his wonderful food! The dishes were delicious - inventive and perfectly prepared! To add an extra challenge, Chef Marcel and his top notch sous chefs needed to cook in our kitchen and take food to our community room where we were holding the event. Every single step of the process was flawless and at the end of the evening I would have never known anyone had been in my kitchen! I had a recipe for the bartender I wanted to serve. She tweaked it and made it even tastier! Our guests wrote us the next day and raved about the appetizers, the meal, the yummy desserts, and the service, which was impeccable. The staff was friendly, kind, fun, and terrific at what they do. As most people know who give parties, the personalities of those who provide the service is critical. Every single person who took care of us was absolutely lovely. Chef Marcel was there the whole time. He was constantly vigilant making sure everything was running smoothly. He went out of his way to accommodate some hungry late arrivals. He was definitely in charge, respectful of his staff, gracious, flexible, and devoted to us having a great time! Our experience with Chef Marcel exceeded any expectations we could have possibly had. A million thank yous to him and to his stellar staff!
Used Gourmet Lovers Catering for our company picnic and everything was great. Working with Carolina to create a menu was very easy and the pricing was very reasonable. Chef Boris and his team were very punctual in their arrival and set up. And the food was excellent! We did Hawaiian theme dishes and everything tasted fresh and was delicious. I went back for seconds on the salad and sautéed veggies. They were also able to customize a vegetarian option that I heard was very tasty. I certainly would hire them again.
Food was great, Chef and his assistant were very nice and professional
I hired these guys about a year ago for a small dinner party, about 5 of us. It was such a great experience! It was a while ago so I can't remember the chef's name, I think it was David, he was on time, professional, super friendly, did a great job working with my tiny apartment kitchen and crappy old stove. The food was impeccable! No joke BEST crab cakes I've ever had in my life! We all had a great time and my friends were also so impressed with the food. They still talk about the dinner. I'm not a fancy person who hires private chefs all the time, it was my first, but it was such a great experience I would do it again if a special occasion came up and would absolutely hire him again! Highly recommend! It took so long to leave this review because I forgot to do it last year and I'm an outta sight outta mind person, unfortunately, but I just got on here to look for another service and saw them on my list and had to leave this review. Won't disappoint!
From the getgo I knew I was dealing with a professional in Marc. I was talking with a few chefs about the 4th of July party I was planning and it was obvious to me that Marc was on it- when I saw his experience running kitchens in NYC, maybe the world's toughest venue, I knew he was the one. His menu was outstanding and he was open to tweaking it ahead of time to suit our tastes and needs. Marc prepared food for our meat eating and our Vegan guests and each dish was clearly marked. When our party metastasized from expected 50 guests to over 300, Marc saved the day by thinking fast on his feet and with a little emergency grocery shopping, ended up having food for all for over 6 hours. The quality of the food really took the party over the top as far as sophistication- we've all had middling to bad food at weddings and other events and it just makes you feel awkward and bad for the host- not the case here. Almost everyone at the party commented on the quality of the food - bold, nuanced flavors but not pretentious. Also, couldn't be a nicer guy. Genuine real deal.
Had a great experience with Executive Chef Mark Kearney and Team. To set expectations before the review, I like to consider myself a food lover...not a critic, just a food lover. I love great dining experiences and am equally critical or disappointed when they fall short. My family and I were hosting Christmas Dinner for a total of 10 family members. I found Chef Mark on Thumbtack based on his previous reviews. Roy (part of Mark's team) promptly reached out with thought-starters for the meal and breakout of pricing. Over the next few weeks Roy, Mark and I worked closely crafting the perfect menu for my traditional Christmas dinner, while staying within my budget parameters. To note, Chef Mark is priced higher than some of the other chefs I was in contact with, but I'm glad we went with Mark based on the outcome. The menu consisted of 4 gourmet hors d oeuvres passed around while we opened presents. A fan favorite was the roasted fig with gorgonzola and prosciutto. Then time for dinner. We sat at the dining table and were served Butternut Ravioli as an appetizer, Lobster Bisque soup (a bit on the spicy side - only critique I have with the food all night) and an organic baby butterleaf salad with incredible apricot balsamic vinaigrette. The main course was both a grilled beef tenderloin (prepared to your liking) and pan roasted turkey breast. Sides that accompanied the main course were brocollini, green beans and bacon/garlic mashed potatoes. Everything (except the soup) was beyond 5 stars in terms of presentation, taste and expectations. Lastly we were served two very decadent and delicious deserts - a molten lava cake and traditional bread pudding. Two things to mention. My wife was forced (by her OBGYN) into a new diet two days prior to the Christmas dinner consisting of no dairy and no soy. When Chef Mark arrived we asked him what had dairy and soy ingredients and he quickly and thoughtfully mentioned that he could make my wife's servings without either dairy or soy. Talk about going above and beyond. This was much appreciated and set the tone for the entire dinner! I would potentially ask for two servers for the evening on future events. One to solely serve as sous chef, helping Mark prepare the food in the kitchen and the other server to help set the table, serve food, wine, etc.. throughout the evening. The 5 hours that Mark and Team allocate for the evening can go quickly. This might alleviate that. Either way, a great experience and thank you Mark and Team!
Chef Carolina was AMAZING. I would defiantly recommend her. I am so glad that I was able to have her into our home to cook for us. Her food and menus were perfect. She is extremely pleasant to work with and understood exactly what we wanted and needed during her time here. Looking forward to booking Chef Carolina again.
Tonya was wonderful to work with. The food was great. I recommend the Triple Chocolate Brownies !! THEY ARE GREAT! I hired her to cater the reception after my fathers memorial. I will absolutely use her again. I cannot thank Sierra Madre Catering enough.
Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.
Chef Alexis was AMAZING! She is a delight & easy to work with, flexible, creative, accommodating, and worked with us on the budget. Then the day of the event went perfectly. Food creation, presentation, pacing, flow, TASTE was wonderful. Her staff are true professionals and made our party a success.
Steven came to our home, to serve my husband and me our anniversary dinner. He brought a beautifully printed out menu explaining the courses. He brought his own dishware which was lovely. From the well displayed appetizers to the meal itself ... we were delighted! The food was five star! And dessert was impressive! A very wonderful experience from beginning to end. What a treat to have an impeccably dressed chef walk through the door of our home and create pure deelish!!! Thank you to Steven!!! Michael and Cindy Thee Ashburn, Virginia
I truly enjoyed working with Amy. I had never hired a private chef for an event before so was nervous about quality and professionalism but I couldn't have made a better choice than Amy! She was super-responsive and pro-active with ideas and suggestions. We had a pretty hard-to-please group and everyone commented how wonderful everything tasted and especially how nice it was to not have to slave over the meal in the kitchen. Amy's pricing is also very fair and open to working with various budget ranges. There is no doubt I (and the dinner guests) will be contacting Amy in the future! Look no further than Amy...she's the best!
Words can not express how amazing Daily Square is. Daneen is such a talented Chef and a beautiful person as well. She catered my husbands 60th birthday party with 35 people. Her presentation of appetizers was so gorgeously delicious. And the evening was about good food and that's what you want at a party. Good food and good friends Her staff was an extension of her. Phenomenal. Her dishes are so unique that have a twist that makes you only want more. She is so professional with an amazing energy. I and all of my friends can't wait to have Dayneen back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our party a night we will never forget.
Amazing chef. His attention to detail was impeccable. Every event I've been to, the food was passé. This event; the food was a talking point! Will definitely hire again!!
EVERYTHING I have ordered from Fitch's Kitchen was extremely flavorful and delicious! And Chef Fitch is extremely flexible, great customer service. Keep up the good work!
Chef Don and his team made my event extremely successful. Don was so easy to communicate with, and was very flexible and accommodating. He offered his suggestions and ideas when needed and made sure the entire evening went smoothly. His team was professional and friendly. I couldn't have asked for more. And the food? Amazing! We all loved everything and the report from these picky teenagers was a huge thumbs up! I will definitely contact this catering company for my next big event!
Wow! What an AMAZING experience I had working with Chef Greg. I hired Greg for my girlfriend’s birthday dinner. We had a total of 16 of her family members, and not a single one of us was disappointed. Greg was extremely attentive, and worked with my every step of the way through dietary restriction and a curveball pescatarian. He was extremely professional and he and his assistant, Chef Brian, led us through an incredible meal. We are already in the process of trying to hire him again. The food was phenomenal, presentation immaculate, and our night was epic as promised. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
The things that I enjoyed about chef la Tay it’s made Devine, is the many different styles that she presents with various styles of dishes from cuisines to cultural dishes and all types of desserts and beverage you name it,” she does it” it’s great! really enjoy throwing parties knowing chef La Tay Will be the cater makes me feel at ease.
I regularly hire Chef Leo and Christina to do events at the clubhouse and for our regular summer BBQ. The reason I hire them is because their food is soooo good. We have had other catering companies do the events in past years, but there is nobody that gets the food RIGHT ON(!) like these guys. Somehow, they manage to delight us with incredible food every time they do a catering. They do the entire event and they do it well, but its the food that makes them stand out. Thanks Christina and Chef Leo!
I always look forward working at a Chef Wendell event. His expertise in culinary cuisine is beyond fabulous. Executing any menu along with any task given at hand is his specialty. He has such a way with food because I know he pours his heart into it. Can’t wait to work my next event with Chef Wendell!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Darrell David was for my event! I hired him to cook for a Superbowl party for 35 people and he blew us all away. We have done this for 4 years and Darrell was the best chef we have hired to date. He helped us plan a terrific menu, shopped for all the food, prepped, cooked, and stayed extra late to make sure the place was spotless. Everyone was so impressed with his food and kept commenting on it the entire day. Darrell was professional, fun to chat with, and excellent at his craft. I highly recommend him!
