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 hired Chef Dan to prepare a meal for us while we were on vacation in Miami celebrating my husband's 50th birthday! We had a small (very limited) kitchen in our suite and Chef Dan said he would make it work. He communicated promptly and ensured a smooth process from start to finish! Once he arrived we enjoyed speaking with Chef Dan and watching him prepare and cook the meal. It was like a personal cooking lesson as well:). My husband couldn't thank me enough for hiring Chef Dan!

I contacted Chef Jeff to arrange meal preparation several times a week for my elderly parents. After speaking with several references I was convinced he was the best choice. Everything I was told by current customers is true. My parents find his food very tasty and he's reliable, accommodating, and very fairly priced. My parents plan to use Chef Jeff on an ongoing basis. We are completely satisfied with Chef Jeff and are happy to have found him through Thumbtack.

From the first contact to the wedding day The Dancing Palate was fantasist. I was looking for a catering service for my daughter’s wedding and found The Dancing Palate on Thumbtack. Paul came to the house and cooked a sample meal of items that she had selected. After tasting the food, we know that The Dancing Palate was exactly what she was looking for and fit our food budget. We wanted our guest to enjoy the food at the reception. And that’s exactly what happened. At the reception we started with Hors D’oeuvre; Fried Mac & Cheese Balls (a brain storm item), Sweet Corn Fritters, Feta Stuffed Mushrooms and Chicken & Waffles with a Glaze Syrup (a brain storm item). Dinner included; Bread Rolls, Salad, and the guest had a choose of Bleu Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops, Skirt Steak served with Chimichurri Sauce and County Fried Chicken Steak served with a White Gravy Sauce (which was another brain storm item). Roasted Garlic White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Almonds. *** Brain storm item…. Items not on his menu but more than happy to for you make. Dessert was done by their pastry chef, Moni’s Sweets Bakery. We went with cupcakes, Vanilla Rum with Buttercream Frosting, for our guest and a small cake for the bride and groom. Guest after guest had high compliments for all food served and for the catering staff. The catering staff had a high level of professionalism. They were courtesy and polite and made sure that our guests were well taken care of. Paul had said that The Dancing Palate would set up and cleaned up without any disturbance to the reception or our guest and that he would provide a high level of service. He and The Dancing Palate did that and much more. They gave us peace of mine in knowing all was taken care of. I would highly recommend The Dancing Palate Catering Service without a hesitation and when planning a party, The Dancing Palate will be my go to catering service. A BIG THANK YOU to Paul, Moni and the staff from The Dancing Palate.

Traci made my life easier; that's exactly what I needed in my life at this time. I just went through surgery and I needed someone to prepare meals for me. Everything he prepares is fresh and healthy, which is exactly what I needed . Traci was very helpful in many ways. He is very professional he did all the shopping and made sure I knew what was in the refrigerator and is helping me on my way back to becoming a healthy person. The food that he prepares is delicious and I would recommend him to anyone

Wally catered a plated meal for 12 people for my 60th birthday in a rental home in Fort Lauderdale. He did an extraordinary job planning the menu, preparing the food on site and even helped serve with his wait staff. My guests raved about the food variety and quality! I highly recommend Wally and will use him the next visiting Florida.

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...

I hired Mauricio for a golf trip dinner with 9 of my friends. We fairly negotiated a price and then chose the menu. Mauricio was professional and very responsive by text. On the evening of the dinner he showed up early and was very accommodating when our timing changed. Of course the best part was the meal! He's an excellent chef and my friends are still raving about the evening. I would highly recommend Mauricio for an evening dinner event. He was fantastic!

    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.

    Nicholas was a great teacher and very flexible with scheduling. The day of my lesson he had everything ready to go and prepared some interesting recipes based on my requests. Nicholas showed me how to make a few sauces from scratch. He also showed me how to use chicken in three different and delicious preparations. We used the skin to make chips, the meat to make a scrumptious stir fry and the bones to make a stock. In addition, he showed me how to make a pork belly dish in the oven because I mentioned how much I loved bacon. I think the mark of a good teacher is when the pupil is able to reproduce what they have been taught. I was definitely able to reproduce Nicholas' stir fry dish, using the tricks he'd shown me to create a meal my family enjoyed...even the picky eaters. It was a wonderful experience.

      Megan catered an event that I had for my friends and customers during the Christmas Season this past year. Over 150 guests attended. Everything was perfect and I was relieved that the one thing I did not have to worry about was the food. Everyone raved about the appetizers and sweets that were served at her suggestion. She was there early to deliver and prepare the food and made sure everything was ready to serve when people started arriving. I would recommend Megan for any job in the food industry. She is dependable and an exceptional cook.
