GREAT EXPERIENCE! I hired Dishmade to cook a dinner for a party of 12. From the start they were great and easy to work with. Very responsive, professional, and helped design a delicious multi-course menu. On the day of the event they arrived on time, worked in a somewhat small space, and most importantly served up an amazing meal. They were super tidy and left the place cleaner than they found it. We had such a fantastic evening, thanks to Dishmade. Would absolutely hire again.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • Italian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

We had a fantastic event in our home thanks to Chefs Damon and Lacie. Communication prior to the event was excellent. Their performance on the day of the event was even better. We were able to spend all our time with our guests, and they set up and delivered a wonderful four-course meal. Their food was fantastic. Their service was excellent. We would definitely use them again.

Damon, Lacie, and Tim were absolutely incredible! My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and dinner in our home and they made it magical! Damon was super responsive, made sure that everything matched our vision, and truly made it feel like they were part of our group. The food was some of the most delicious food I’ve ever had! Everyone couldn’t stop talking about it! If there is any special event and you don’t want to stress about food or service, dishmade is the perfect team! Our home felt like a 5 star restaurant!

Damon and Lacie provided seamless professional service throughout the entire event. Every course was delicious and exceeded our expectations. The steak in particular was cooked to perfection and all the guest fell in love with their bacon cilantro lime rice. I will highly recommend dish made to family and friends and use them for any of our future events. Value and quality work!
