Party for 70 people - We were very happy with Island Chef - the food was excellent and more food than we could possibly eat. Chef Tamara and her helpers were friendly and did a great job. A lot of my lawers and staff asked the name of the caterer because they were so impressed.

Cheryl sets the bar wayyy to high for private chefs. Once you have had a private chef experience with her, you will never invite a different chef into your home or private event. From the moment I hired Cheryl for a surprise couple's dinner over Labor Day Weekend, she made it very clear that she aimed to provide a "blow you away" experience. First she designed the three course menu. I told her what I had in mind (lighter dinner - fish and seafood) and she instantly started providing her ideas with pictures of different dishes, different types of fish, sauces, presentation styles, etc. We agreed on a shrimp polenta cake w romesco sauce topped w sauteed carrots appetizer, an atlantic cod on a bed of smashed potatoes with olive and mushrooms, and a creme brulee. Our friends that we surprised with the meal both said it was one of the best meals they had ever had. We agreed. Leading up to the day of the event, Cheryl covered all the details. Since we were staying at a resort, she asked about everything from the type of dishes available to whether she should bring a tablecloth. She made wine recommendations, and even brought us a bottle for the dinner. The final presentation was perfect. Cheryl connected immediately with our group and was ready to impress - she got right to work when she arrived, but not after exchanging pleasantries and making sure that she knew her audience. All in all, Cheryl provides white glove customer service, has the most genuinely friendly and professional personality and is awesome to work with. She impresses from the moment you say YES, and even before that. Her cooking is delicious. It was a gourmet meal that we would have paid much, much, much more for at a reataurant, but she brought it to the comfort of our home (hotel). The presentation of the food was impressive, and everything was served with so much love. Cheryl takes great pride in what she does. We look forward to making Cheryl's cooking a part of our yearly tradition. I would never consider using anyone else. You will not be disappointed with Cheryl. Dont look any further - you have found your private chef for life. (I NORMALLY AM VERY LAZY ABOUT WRITING REVIEWS, BUT CHERYL PROVIDED SUCH AN IMPRESSIVE EXPERIENCE THAT I WOULD NOT FEEL GOOD NOT WRITING ONE)
Dawn is so very professional and knowledgeable. I am giving my 2 kids the gift of cooking lessons with her for Christmas. She is prepared, conscientious, and thorough in explanation and goals. I know my kids are going to learn how to cook basics and work their way up to being chefs one day! I would recommend Dawn to anyone, either for a private chef, one time lesson or multiple lessons.
She was amazing! Very professional, food tasted amazing, and my kitchen was spotless after. All my guest's were highly pleased. She over exceeded our expectations! Thank you Chef Kimberly for making it an unforgettable experience!
We have used Lisi's home chef service for several weeks and are delighted with it. The meals have been exciting and delicious and we (3 in my family) have enjoyed them immensely. We have been introduced to some new foods and new ways of preparing some dishes. The delivery has always been on time and I like that she delivers the meals in microwavable containers. I recommend Chef Lisi highly!
Chef Gordon is an amazing chef! He prepared an outstanding meal for our group of 6 adults. It was such a pleasures have him cook for us! Made our trip extra special!
The private cooking class was a Father's Day gift for my husband who let me say "can't cook". Chef Christophe was very responsive and listen to what type of experience I was looking to give my husband and Chef Christophe DELIVERED!!!!! He made my husband feel very comfortable and a very positive experience. My husband is now looking forward to possibly learning and cooking more. And the added plus is Chef Christophe help him to prepare and cook us a delicious meal. Thank you Chef Christophe! We look forward to our next cooking encounter with you.
Chef Andrew Blass is one of the most creative and innovative people I know. Anyone lucky enough to enjoy his gourmet creations is guaranteed not only a delicious experience, but an irresistible desire for more......enjoy!!!
Colleen had dinner ready exactly on time. She brought the food needed to prepare a delicious dinner. She prepared chicken with a white wine sauce, spinach, yellow squash, and a eye & tummy pleasing salad. Diner was full of vibrant colors, inticing smells and scrumptious food. Colleen cleaned the kitchen and washed every dish by hand (since I don't own a dishwasher). She definitely went the extra mile and to top it off she brought a bonus dessert, her newly tested key lime pie recipe.
Chef Jessica Black prepared to finger food for my election return party. The finger food was "finger licking" good. Everyone was impressed by the presentation, freshness and great taste
Kaitlynd has been great to work with! After providing a menu the prior week from which we pick and choose our meals, she cooks and drops off a weeks worth of dinner meals each Monday. She is very attuned to our needs as a family, and has been careful about accounting for allergies and food preferences; she has been accommodating us with a Mediterranean diet. Everything she makes is not only nutritious and healthy, but delicious as well. I have been so impressed with her work ethic and attention to detail, as well as her incredible ability as a chef.
Great food, great chef!! Very personable!!
I have had one of the best experiences with Luis from Lou's Catering. His presentation and food are top rate. Every guest was wowed by the amount of food and taste of all then food. Luis is patient and eager to please. I was extremely happy and very pleased with Luis. The experience exceeded by expectations. This was the first time I used Thumbtack and the first time I hired a caterer to cater all the food and also do all the BBQing at the party, it was an awesome experience. I would hire Luis everytime I need a caterer. He's professional, punctual, and an awesome chef. Thank you Luis.
