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!!!

Two days ago, we had a small wedding of 30 people for my daughter and our experience with The Dancing Palate was excellent. Because it was a beach wedding, we had to bring everything in ourselves. The chef, Chef Paul, is truly a professional and made the process seamless. We hired an event planner through him, Claudia of Passionate Events, and she coordinated EVERYTHING -- the rentals, the cake, the decorations --- and on the day of the event, she set everything up, sat down with all of us and oversaw the whole timeline as well as make the announcements as to the first dance, etc. The food was prepared at the event and was delicious, the cake was beautifully designed and delicious, also. There was one glitch with the cake design due to a miscommunication and Chef Paul ran out and came back and fixed it on the spot! They completely cleaned up afterwards. The place was spotless. If you want a "worry-free" event, hire Chef Paul and Claudia!

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.

Let us start by saying WOW and AMAZING! We are so late writing this review and apologize for that... My husband and I were married back in January of 2016. As many of us that plan a wedding, this was our first time so we did not know what to expect. We planned everything ourselves, found the venue, found a caterer, photographer, Dj etc. We had a budget and it was quickly approaching the maximum. We heard weddings were expensive blah blah blah, but until you pay for one you may never know... We interviewed several Thumbtack bakers and taste tested their product. We met a lot of great candidates, but non of them "took the cake" like Claudia at "Cake it to the limit" Claudia is an artist and a visionary. Jose and I had an idea to incorporate our centerpiece (a silver metal round globe that was a candle holder and had an unusual design to illuminate light) We sent Claudia a picture of the centerpiece and asked her if she could incorporate it into her design. We did not see her idea until the day of, we were amazed! It was elegant, stunning and delicious! Our caterer, Laura, from Laura Ashley catering (also recommended) told us that they have never had a fondant cake that was so easily able to cut and serve. Needless to say we highly recommend this company and have already had the opportunity to recommend her to others. Claudia is professional and a delight to work with. Thankyou for making our day extra special!

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!!!

Robyn was amazing from the first meeting straight through to the end of our wedding! She is so down to earth, blunt but in a way that you can appreciate, honest, hardworking, and a PHENOMENAL chef!!!!! We met with her once to discuss our vision for the wedding, and she gave us a tasting of a few of her food truck selections. Everything tasted like it came straight from God's personal chef! Lol. Seriously, I never thought something as simple as pulled pork, chicken n waffles, Mac n cheese, and fried avocado (just to name a few of our menu choices) could taste so amazingly delicious and gourmet!!!! I cannot stop raving about how great it all was. And as for Robyn, she was a gem during the wedding. She was attentive as heck! She was able to calm my husband's nerves prior to the ceremony, she made sure to set aside a plate of appetizers for us while we were taking our couples' portraits, and even packed up a little bit of everything for us as a late night/morning after snack! I could not have asked for a better person to cater our intimate southern-style wedding. I would recommend her a thousand times over! Thank you for EVERYTHING Robyn!!!!

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)

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!

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...

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.

Chef Davolazala is an amazing culinary master! He is the only one I trust to handle all gatherings, whether it’s a bridal shower, a wedding for 200 people, a birthday party, a barbecue, or an intimate private dining experience. Not only does he know his way around the kitchen for whatever type of cuisine is requested, but he takes it a step further when he compliments each perfect bite with an equally amazing mixology pairing. Above and beyond the quality of his food, the Chef is incredibly personable and attentive to all the small details, making him a party planner’s dream partner. Thank you chef!
