I don't even know where to begin. My wedding day was amazing and all anyone could even talk about was the food. I tried a few places but once j met with Laura she had me at hello. Her personality matched her food. And as much as it was the bride's day, the chef stole the show! My main course was Osso Bucco Beef with a heirloom mushroom risotto and braised carrots! It basically screamed heaven. The second I took a bite I was in bliss. Literal bliss. I had never had such a tender and succulent piece of meat. Every bite after just placed layers of happiness til I looked down and it was gone. I was astonished that I even could eat the whole plate being as I was stuffed in my dress as it was. 😁 Laura was onsite and amazing. She handles it all and was the perfect addition to my wedding. I could not be more thankful to have found this amazing chef in such a short period of time. I would choose her over and over again. She will be also doing our anniversary party next year as our guests are dying to see what she does next.

The Chef prepared and served an outstandingly elegant and wonderfully scrumptious meal celebrating my mother's 80th birthday! He provided everything needed for the meal and cleaned up everything when finished. We completely appreciate it and will definitely have him back.

This was a fabulous way to take the stress out of a celebration. Becky and sous chef, Jill, created a great menu with presentation and flavors that were spot on with our expectations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an intimate meal and/or catering. I will utilize her services again in the future. Thank you for everything!

The Hazel Nut staff is very professional, and promt. The food was absolutely devine. I gave Chef Eric my menu, we hashed out all the detail on when I needed the food ready, where to deliver. The rest was in his hands. The display was colorful, neat, and the food itself was a hit with the guess. Definately will use Hazel Nut Grill again for all of my parties and events. Those mini sandwhiches, and gumbo will be on every last one of my must haves for my menu.

I hired Jeff to cook dinner for my wife and her friends for her 35th birthday party. After reaching out to a few personal chefs, Jeff stood out for his creativity and passion he showed towards making the dinner a success. I could not have asked for anything more than what he provided. Him and his team cooked a delicious meal as well as created some great cocktails for us to enjoy. He truly made the night a tremendous experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I thought I knew how to grill till I met Mr. Sealy who can only be described as Mr. Perfection. This man cooks for love not for money or celebrity status. One taste and you are hooked. Old saying back in the day describes Mr. Sealy, " food taste so good you want to slap your Mama"

I cannot say enough great things about quinoa and coco. They did an outstanding job from the food to the experience and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for five star food and service. I hired them to cook a four course meal for a small surprise party. They did an excellent job on being on time and having the food hot and ready to go. Since I has four courses there was a lot of clean up involved and plate changes. Everything went so smoothly and when they were finished the kitchen was spotless! I was so impressed by every little detail it really blew me away! I would defiantly hire them again and refer them to everyone seeking great food and service.

Last Friday night, I had a dinner party of 12 people at my home in Atlantic Beach, Florida. I wanted it to be special and "out of the ordinary". This was the first time I have had a Chef actually take care of everything and prepare the food for all to see. Chef Roberts met with me at my home before the party and we agreed to a menu and the price. The pricing was reasonable and worth every penny. Chef Roberts provided all of the food and my guests enjoyed watching him prepare their dinner. As each course was served, The Chef explained the ingredients and answered questions. Dinner included an organic lettuce salad with special dressing and green apples, wonderful chilled soup of vichyssoise (leeks, onions, potatoes served cold), fabulous crab cake martini for appetizer, and fresh grilled grouper with lemon burr blanc sauce. The dessert was a homemade banana pudding with chocolate topping and specially prepared wafers. Melinda of Melinda's Confections was here to serve this amazing treat. We all had seconds. We will use Chef Robert's again and highly recommend him. He is professional, funny, witty and passionate about cooking. The evening was a huge success and we were able to relax and enjoy our guests while having a 5 star meal served in our home. I am available to discuss our experience personally with anyone who needs a reference. Thanks, Pam

Chef Dominick Tony is simply the best...I highly recommend him to either teach you how to cook or provide personal meal services. He has done both for me and his skills and personality are a combination not found anywhere else in Jacksonville!! Highly recommended!!!!
