Chef Brown came over to my home to prepare a meal for 12 this past weekend. Not only is he an excellent chef but he and his staff are such a pleasure to have in your home. Everything was excellent: four appetizers, main plait and the desert was to die for. My guests were in awe of such experience and it truly was a hit. It was such a luxurious afternoon and not only did Dameon prep everything beautifully but they cleaned every single dish and left left overs for us! I mean, does it get any better? The price is fair, the service impeccable and you should absolutely hire these guys if you want a first class meal and service. TWO THUMBS WAY UP!

Vivian has a true passion for preparing meals..She does not have one culture focus, but is versed in many. And although an "Artist" in every way, she loves working closely with us. She had done enough "Prep" work, to make the process in our Kitchen go very smoothly. Meal served on time, right temperature, and a blending of the outstanding flavours made it very memorable. Can't wait for the next presentation. Also, Just "down to Earth"..A real person!.

I arranged a special birthday dinner for my wife and 4 friends. They had a fantastic meal with great service and way to much food. All ingredients were fresh and purchased the morning of the surprise dinner evening. The salad with home made fennel dressing was adored and the crab cakes were delectable and perfect. The rest of the meal (main course - beef tenderloin, grouper delicious potato's, more) did not disappoint either. Great communication as I arranged this experience remotely - Recommend you strongly consider Intimate Catering. Ron Amodeo, Seminole FL

Unexpectedly I had 17 arriving for Christmas dinner and with my small kitchen there was no way I could prepare a meal. Chef Paola did an exceptional job. The food was wonderful and heated just perfectly so when I got home all I had to do was serve it. She even made the giblet gravy that I had requested. Turkey was cut off the carcass as I had requested and ham was sliced to perfection. I had requested "real" mashed potatoes, which she did and my grandsons ate more then their share. Vegetables were done to perfection. The pies and cake I had ordered for dessert were to die for. Only thing I wish I had gotten one of her pistachio cakes that I have had and are wonderful. If I ever have another group for dinner, whether it be Christmas or just a special occasion, Chef Paola will be the first one I call for help.

Had a surprise couples diner planned for the misses on the back patio while our kitchen was being renovated. She brought out delicious food and set it up beautifully. Everything went smoothly and she helped to make everything just right from the meal plan to the presentation. Top notch and awesome people!

He was great! We had him come to our home to cook an NYE dinner. It made the evening that much more special and fun. It was so nice to not have to worry about cooking the meal, and be able to spend that time with family and friends. It was also very interesting talking to the chef, watching him prepare the dishes ( and even help!) and learn about what he was creating. Would recommend for a special occasion!

I was made a shrimp boil with potatoes and andouille sausage for a birthday celebration that I was having with a large group of friends and family. Stephanie did an outstanding job preparing the meal and serving it. She recommended having it on the lanai on a long table with butcher block paper. We all used our hands and couldn't get enough of the food...it was that good. We were only sorry that there wasn't more to devour as we were ravenous. She did a fantastic job. I had a great birthday meal. I would certainly use her for other jobs no matter how big or small, and I recommend her without hesitation!

Nancy's cooking is amazing. She is creative and will adjust recipes to suit your dietary needs. She prepared meals for my family during a time we were too busy to shop and cook, and there was such variety and freshness, it was hard to go back to reality! She is fun to work with on menus, and the perfect solution to your entertaining needs, too. No party without Nancy Gordon Fine Catering! We were sorry to see her move to Florida, but happy to know she will be back in the biz down there. The best!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Not only is the food fresh, healthy and tasty, but it's delivered right to my house. They ensure all my individual dietary requests are met. Above the Grain goes ABOVE AND BEYOND! Meals are affordable, compared to gas to the store, time to make each meal and I now have more time to spend with my family, or for work on days requiring long hours. The owner is fantastic to work with too. She is always positive, professional and meals are there rain or shine! I have felt more energized, healthy and at the weight I need to be for my personal goals, while never feeling hungry.... They feed ya!

Me Gusta Gustavo showed on time, was very professional, very accommodating even for my somewhat picky guests. His food was so delicious even the pickiest tried it all and loved it all. He even did the dishes. So much food great value more reasonable than most might think for a personal chef to come to your home and cook for you. He even does meal planning even for the strictest diet regimes. I would hire him again without question!!!

We have had the Smale's prepare meals for us on several occasions, and everything has always been top notch. Plus they do all the cleanup, how could one go wrong. Their service is very professional, food sources original, and wine selection perfect. We highly recommend Serrated! -Jeff & Lynn
