Mia prepared food for for my party this weekend. Her food is delicious and the presentation was amazing. We are definitely using her at our next event!Sep 28, 2015
I never had a personal chef come to my home. I wanted to surprise my wife for Valentine's Day. We talked on the phone several times to plan our meal. I told her my wife favorite entree was cheating sea bass, she found it and cooked it to perfection. She had wonderful ideas for side dishes, also brought table cloth, candles , flowers, place settings. My wife was blown away, and said it was the most romantic thing anyone had done for her ! Thank you Mia you were exceptional !Feb 15, 2015Verified
"Mia is amazing. From traditional Romanian food to Classic American, Healthy clean cooking and even vegan food she is an excellent chef. She is personable, efficient and keeps our fridge stocked with great food. We would highly recommend her.Jul 25, 2014Verified
We had a dinner party with friends and during the main course Mia interrupted the dinner to announce she wanted to leave. She asked if one of the guests, during the meal, if could meet her by the freeway the next day to deliver the dishes and all her materials. After about 5-10 minutes negotiating about where she could pick up the dishes, she agreed to come back the next day to pick them up. She said we could leave the dirty dishes on the table and she would take care of it the next day. Not at all an option for the host. We had to ask her to stay to serve dessert. She served dessert while we were still eating the main course. She didn't even clear the table. At this point all the guests were stunned and silent while she placed the desserts alongside our dinner plates. She left shortly after. All of the guests, after our spoiled dinner party, had to clean up all the dishes and the kitchen! Completely unacceptable and unprofessional. If you're going to provide a service at least complete it! We will never use this chef again.May 23, 2015VerifiedMia Fontaine's reply
*I was only scheduled for two hours and ended up staying four hours because the customer and her girls friends was late for diner . I didn't want to interrupt the party and i ask if i can pick up everything the next morning ,,all my dishes ,tablecloth and decoration i provide free of charge'' * The deserts was on the display Deserts table and she was asking to serve at the table ,I did it !! but not everybody was finish second course ,the girls was having fun drinking and eating slow and i was thinking to let them have time to eat and drink ,dance take picture and not hurry the party. Alana was sending me a text few days after party ,,Thxs so much for assisting with the diner in Temecula ''
