After having my initial event date change, I was worried about hiring a caterer on this site. :/ Actually, our original caterer canceled on us at the last minute, so we gave thumbtack a shot anyway. Chef Jose was quick to reply, and gave us the lowest quote out of the 4 we received. I told him about the bind we were in, and he ultimately told me that that they could make it happen. Chef Jose was easy to talk to and created a list of all of our preferred menu options. Surprisingly enough, he even took note of our favorite restaurants in the area, which I personally think was quite a touch of class. The following morning, Chef Brian called me to inform he had produced 3 menus based on Jose's notes, which appeared in my inbox to discuss. I was beyond amazed as Chef Brian scheduled a tasting at my request the following evening. My son and 2 of his friends, along with my wife and I, arrived to Chef Jose's office and were so impressed as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was all stainless steel, immaculately sanitized, and the tasting area was all set. Chef Brian arranged dish after dish, while Chef Jose described each and gave us a run down of how they would be executed at our event. They even offered us wine and champagne, as well as plenty of treats and items they had been working on earlier in the day. We literally felt like we were recording for a cooking show as both chefs featured some amazing French cheeses and their eclectic collection of different preserves! Oh, and the maple bacon popcorn!!! Oh, em gee...We were totally blown away, and felt so lucky to have our original caterer cancel on us for a more lucrative event. These guys rock!!! Totally seems like this team treats their work like fun as they are so passionate with their menu ideas, personable with their manners, and affable with their warmth for their clients. After how they took care of us, I couldn't help but to write such a thorough review. I highly recommend Chefs Jose & Brian from Dade County Food Group, and will insist that my friends have their functions catered by them, too.
Omg. I have nothing but mad Respect for this Chef☝️. Everything was perfect! He stayed in contact with me thru out the process. Was on time and the food 🥘 was amazing. Every thing was perfect. Will be using this chef every time we go to Florida!
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 @ firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
I'm on the strict Phase 2 of the Simeon hcg diet. Her food is amazing and very tastey. Worth every penny!
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!!!
Yummy food, Chef Wally was awesome!
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.
Chef jimmy came and cooked at my wedding reception and it was the best experience I ever had. If I could I would give him a 6 star instead of 5. He did over and above and should be everyone first CHOICE. Thx chef from odell
Today I was lucky enough to experience a few selections from Chef Robyn's repertoire - in Fort Myers.. and I was NOT disappointed! Her culinary skills are impressive, and she is bold with her creativity - resulting in some awesome, original creations... Icing on the cake is Robyn's delightful personality - she is as real is it gets, and can regale you with stories that give you some insight into her background AND have you laughing between mouthfuls! An experience not to be missed. If you have the opportunity (you should MAKE the opportunity), you will be Happy that you did.
She is an awesome amazing chef!!! Best personality as well!!! Great for small business affairs and classy for black tie events! Again best catering available with reasonable prices!!!
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)
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.
Mike Schwartz at Zest Kitchenz is a very professional, knowledgeable, and creative chef. The food was amazing! The service impeccable! We didn't have to lift a finger. He took care of everything for us, and then some. I was honestly surprised at the quality of service and how reasonablly priced it was. I highly recommend using him for any cooking needs you have.
WOW!!! Everything about the evening was perfect! I am an average cook and Nicolas made me feel so comfortable with all the new skills he taught me. The menu included fillet of snapper with a cream caper sauce with brussell sprouts and pancetta. The food was amazing , better than most restaurants and the evening was fun and informative . Nicolas taught me many tips on how to be a better cook. I now have compound butter and fish stock in my repertoire. Tonight I am trying the exact recipe on some good friends and next Wednesday Nick is teaching me red sauces. Nick is warm, funny, well prepared and a very skilled chef. In addition after enjoying this wonderful creative meal, he cleaned up my kitchen, WOW. I would highly recommend Nicholas and can't wait for my next lesson.
Chef Kevin was amazing. The food was excellent. This was my first personal chef experience and he made it seamless. Our meal was healthy delicious and full of flavor, I will definitely be hiring him again and again.
I can not express enough how happy we were. The food was amazing and great quality. She was great around our dogs. I am sure this will not be the last I see of her.
