I run a private concierge company whose clientele enjoys entertaining family and guests at their personal homes. From planning the menu, procuring the food ( including the beef that was flown in from Texas that day), to preparation and service, Chefs Brian and Jose were outstanding. Their presentation and interaction with the guests were delivered with a casual elegant style and received great praise from all who attended.

I was tasked with planning my best friend's bachelorette weekend in Ft. Lauderdale. This meant I had to account for the dietary restrictions of 18 girls: from 2 people with Celiac disease to fish allergies to vegetarians, it was Chef Jeff to the rescue. Chef Jeff prepared a taco bar for us night 1, brought us delicious salads with a broad array of yummy sandwiches day 2 and came over day 3 to prepare omelettes for a made to order style breakfast. Everything was amazing and Chef Jeff was a pro. He consulted with me constantly to ask informed questions about our Celiac girls and thought of innovative solutions to give them something delicious: like the cauliflower tortillas he made night 1. The girls raved about the food and Chef Jeff all weekend. Not only that, Chef Jeff was fun, professional and amazing to work with. He was super flexible and willing to work with me as I had to stick to a budget. Thanks so much Chef Jeff, you made our weekend unforgettable!!!

My name is Lucero you can contact me for a direct reference @ lmsaldana@live.com. I am a lawyer by profession and I must admit I am VERY picky. My wedding was on April 19, 2014. I was referred to the Dancing Palate via Thumbtack. The Dancing Palate was AMAZING. Their quality of service and cuisine is unmatched. The guest loved the food. We requested the vegetable crudité, the vegetable quesadillas and the pulled pork a-top of fried plantains as appetizers and the mediterranean chicken and skirt steak as entrees. Everything was delicious and presented in a very classy manner. My wedding turned out perfect. The Chef, Paul Lobeck went out of his way to please me and my husband. His staff was incredibly professional. Their were five members of his staff present. You barely knew they were there. They offered quality service with more than affordable prices. This is a company that you should definitely consider for any occasion. Six of my guest already requested chef Lobeck's business card!!! Before signing on with the company, they offer a tasting. You tell the chef the dishes you want to try and he comes to your house and let's you try each dish. There is no commitment. The company left a great impression on me. I will definitely use their services for other occasions!

Chef Traci and his assistant were very hospitable and professional. Traci cooked everything fresh for us in our home for my birthday. Our friends were definitely wowed by the amazing and delectable spread of BBQ. My friends are still talking about how delicious the food was. Chef Traci turned my birthday bbq into a 5star event. I will definitely refer Chef Traci to all of my friends. Thank you for making my birthday a birthday to remember. Anna W.

Exceptional chef. The food was outstanding and the service was five star. Chef was able to bring several different cuisines into each dish. Would highly recommend Gonzo's private chef services again. We are planning on booking her again for the holidays. She also did a wonderful job working with allergies!

José was the epitome of a personal chef. I have set up events with chefs before and he blew us away with his professionalism, delicious cooking, and personality as a whole! Jose made the process very easy and he quoted a great price that we were comfortable with. He did not try to rip us off like other chefs try to do. We are all from out of town for a bachelorette party and wanted to do a fun night in to relax and have great food for our last night. He prepared homemade Chinese food with spring rolls, dumplings, fried rice, sticky chili chicken, broccoli, and a delicious chocolate cake cup dessert with vanilla ice cream! His sticky chili chicken had a Peruvian twist and was party favorite! A few of us have a serious peanut and shellfish allergy and he suggested foods to have on the menu and was very responsive to any needs we needed. I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely use if we are back in town! Thank you José!!!

My son had the opportunity to cook with Chef Deb. What an experience. He was so focused and loved it. What a great experience. If your child is interested in this they would love it. The next day we bought a pasta maker. We are looking to do it again.

Kerry is an amazing pastry chef and beautiful person on the inside and out! I sent her the party invite and asked if she can match the design on the cake, add watercolor effect and nautical elements for my sister's baby shower. She matched the cake design perfectly and added her personal touch as well. It was tastefully done and came out elegant and way beyond my expectations! The cake was not only beautiful but also so tasty! Everyone were impressed and now two weeks later we still talk about it. Kerry was also professional and punctual. She kept communicating on the progress, asking questions, keeping me informed and delivered on time. Perfection!

The food was absolutely amazing, I ordered the mushroom flatbread, shrimp tacos, and the tomatoe mozzarella sandwich. The flavors chef Mark has created with his menu is truly something special, I love the fact that everything is local and fresh. His simplistic style shines through in every dish, I honestly wanted to try everything on the menu but I couldn’t eat anymore lol.... It’s only a matter of time until this blows up into something huge. Mark, Jackie, and Shannon are a great team and I wish you guys nothing but the best. I will definitely be coming back to try everything else. (Also want to try the brunch menu)

Sub Carib was on point with their delicious food. They were at my son's baseball tournament in Parkland and they did not disappoint. Island Grill chicken sandwich was the best I've ever tasted! Thank you Chef Joseph for providing amazing food.

Let me start by saying I arranged for The Happy Hour Private Chef to cook a meal for my parents in their home. I personally have not had his food, nor know him, other than reviews from this site. Chef Antoine is very professional. He is a great communicator, responsive, and fair. My parents enjoyed his company and appreciated his thoughtful gestures. I would say his speciality is not necessarily gourmet meals, more simple food done well... Of note, my parents are older and very private people and they were very comfortable having him in their home, and I know when you are hiring an unknown person, this can be helpful information. Send him an email and see what you think. Never hurts to ask, run an idea and see if there is a connection. Afterall, most of life is based on connections and chemistry. You don't know until you try...

An exceptional class taught by an exceptional Chef! I am working on my culinary certification and had asked Chef Maury's help to polish my skills up. It took a couple of months until I could finally schedule my class (my schedule won't permit) but Chef Maury replied promptly whenever I send him a message. The class itself lasted for about 4 hours, concentrating on knife skills, stock making and basic cooking techniques. He was very keen in making sure I make the right cuts and correcting me right away. His kitchen is a standard home kitchen so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by big equipment. Whether you have a culinary background like I do or just a home cook who wants to learn more, Chef Maury is the right guy to show you the ropes. I am already looking forward to my next class!

    Orangel came to our home on New Years Eve and provided personal Chef services to myself and my wife. He prepared and cooked a gourmet meal as we watched. He plated and served and as we enjoyed eating, he quietly cleaned all the pots and pans. The meal was excellent.
