I connected with Chef Tony via Thumbtack many months ago because I was interested in hiring a personal chef for a "girls' weekend" I was hosting in July. After communicating with Chef Tony just a few times, I knew, without a doubt, he was the right person for the job. Not only does have fantastic credentials, he also has a personality to match! Needless to say, my guests and I were beyond pleased with the meal and service provided by Chef Tony, not to mention Diane, the most amazing server I've ever met/seen! The food prepared by Chef Tony was absolutely delicious. That in itself would have made the evening great. BUT...when you couple that with the fact that he's a professional sommelier and does wine pairings throughout the entire dinner, the event was a huge success! I would absolutely hire Chef Tony again and have already recommended him to several friends.

Our experience with Anton and his assistant was beyond amazing. Everyone has an expectatIon of how they want their event to be presented. From a sit down dinner wIth cocktail hour for 25 people in our home for thanksgiving. The PRESENTATION was phenomenal. it looked like a Norman Rockwell painting, the turkey, the ham, the gluten free dishes, all the family favorites that we requested. Done to perfection. This was the first holiday meal that I was able to enjoy my guests and not worry about cleaning up afterwards. Everyone raved about the food. Plenty of leftovers that didn't go to waste. We had take home containers for everyone. That was such a hit. That about 10 later we had our company holiday feast in our home catered by Anton. He was able to cater to all dietary needs. From vegan, to paleo, to very upscale palate pleasing dishes. So we challenged Anton one more time, for Christmas eve with our loved ones of 27 give or take. We asked him to do the Italian feast of the seven fishes. Omg is all I can say. What a presentation, from the cocktail hour before dinner, then our sit down dinner with mussels,scallops,clams, and crab. Then we had wrapped filet mignon cooked to order for each person along with grilled vegetables and an assortment of gluten free and vegan dishes to please everything. Even the homemade ice cream that Anton makes himself is yummy. He does not rush you to finish and I appreciated sooo Much. We had lil ones to tend to, so we didn't get a chance to all sit at once sometimes. Anton made us feel like a royalty in our castle, and he was our personal chef. If we could rate him at ten stars, that still wouldn't be enough. He is very versatile in his cooking and preparation and presentation of the meals he prepares. I recently switched sd cards in my phone, or I would have posted some pictures. When I locate,I will post. Price wise, he is reasonable and will work within your Budget and still give you the most enjoyable experience. Champagne dreams and cavier wishes should be one of Anton tag lines. I will say, in the future, the sooner you can plan your event, the better your chances of having Anton fulfill your desire to WOW your guests. Thank You Anton and family, for making our holiday gatherings something to remember .

We had the BEST time learning how to cook with Allison! She arrived on time and got right to work teaching us how to prepare our meal. Allison was kind enough to sharpen my dull kitchen knives as well. We had a great conversation and sharing stories (Her's were awesome to listen to) as she taught us how to prepare our meal. It felt like we had all known each other for years :) I could probably write all afternoon about the valuable insights into cooking that Allison shared with us. At the end of it all, we enjoyed the most amazing meal I think I have ever had. Thank you so much, Allison! We will definitely have you back again to teach us much more!

I worked with Chef Rock to plan my mother's 80th birthday party. We had 20 people and it is always difficult to please everyone; however, Chef Rock was able to plan a menu that was versatile and tasty! The chef made sure he considered people's diet and health needs before he planned the meals. I loved that Jim was completely prepared and self-sufficient, so it didn't matter how well the kitchen was stocked (or not). We had a taco bar and enchiladas one night and I was really impressed that the chef served homemade tortillas and he roasted the fresh chills. The following evening we had a beautiful rib roast with all the trimmings, fresh vegetables and potatoes dauphinoise. I was really impressed with Chef Rock's attention to detail, including warmed plates, the tastiest condiments and dips, as well as plenty of fresh fruit. I highly recommend hiring a personal chef for this kind of event since we only had 2 1/2 days to spend quality time with each other and travelled from five different states. Chef Rock also made sure everything was ready depending on our schedule. If we hadn't made this arrangement with our chef, I'm sure we would have been eating dinner at midnight! Luckily we had plenty of room in the house so the chef could stay the whole time, making coffee in the morning and providing all the clean-up. Thanks Jim for making this great event so memorable and special.

Tanya, prepared an excellent meal for 11 people on my 60th birthday. We talked, and she presented menu choices. She arrived promptly with one helper. They worked hard in the kitchen, were very helpful, and allowed me and my partner to enjoy the evening, and our guests without worrying about anything. I highly recommend Tanya as a personal chef for all occasions!!

I ordered meals this week for my husband and I from Chef Yuri. I am extremely pleased with the quality of the food, the taste and the freshness. Chef Yuri was easy to work with and very professional. I gave her a meal plan based on a new healthy eating regimen that I want to do. She prepared the food just as we asked. I enjoy cooking but I just don’t have time. Chef Yuri made it easy for me to juggle my busy schedule AND eat healthy this week! I will be ordering weekly.

We purchased this as a gift for our boss and he could not say enough good things about the experience with Chef Cindi. From the food to the service to the interaction being just right, it was an evening our boss thoroughly enjoyed! In fact, He liked it so much so that he's hired him back for another night. I will definitely recommend Chef Cini to others.

Colleen is my "go to" when I need delicious, healthy food made from the fresh produce from our garden. We have utilized her services for dinners, cooking demonstrations and birthday parties. Her calm and pleasant demeanor take the stress out of any situation. She will make whatever you ask-to your specifications. Or, if you don't have any specifications she will figure out just what you need. Everything she has prepared for us has been incredibly delicious. She is extremely professional and versatile, possessing the culinary skills to prepare fabulous meals fit for foodies or for those who just want a good old-fashioned meal. We encourage you to give her a try, you won't be disappointed.

      Kyle and Jenna were efficient and professional in serving a delicious meal for our company's outdoor employee picnic this summer. I really felt like they had everything under control, and they took care of all the details, so we could relax and enjoy the evening. The food was colorful and tasty, and the price was good. They left everything in ship-shape condition when the event was over, you couldn't even tell that they had been there! I would highly recommend Simplicity Catering to my friends and family.

      We needed help with food preparation when I needed surgery. Matt has good menu choices, and the price is quite reasonable. He delivered some great food on Tuesday and we are really looking forward to continued food deliveries from Luna Cooking.

      Excellent! The food was very well planned and prepared for 100 people. The chicken fingers, buffalo wings, and sliders were a huge hit! Nicki worked very hard to make sure that everything was just right. She went above and beyond and provided extra help at the party which was amazing. I will use this catering service in the future! Nicki is very easy to work with, and she is extremely hard working! We were thrilled with the success of the party!

      John Burwell (JB) created a magnificent Valentine's Day menu around my wife's "likes"--steak & peach moscato. He arrived, set-up, and created an outstanding 3-course meal. He arrived to a clean kitchen and when he left hours later, it looked as if he'd never been there. JB is a friendly, down-to-earth guy who provides an excellent upscale service. I tell everyone I know about him and am thinking of reasons to hire him again.
