Reviews for Fort Myers personal chefs
Colby S.
To say our experience was wonderful would be an understatement. We had never used a personal chef before so we didn't know where to start or what to expect. Chef helped guide us the whole way and her communication was prompt. We enjoyed our experience so much that we immediately booked a second night. There wasn't a bad thing on our plate. She is skilled at her craft. Our personal favorites were the coconut shrimp, lobster risotto, caprese parmesan cups, spicy tuna on crispy rice, and the chocolate mousse! We come to Ft Myers every year for our family vacation and we will be sure to use Chef Cheryl every year going forward!
