I'm so glad I was able to find Sandy! She is truly a gem who really cares about her client's vision for their special day as well as their budget. She made herself available to talk through ideas with me as a destination bride which made planning so much easier. Her staff were very courteous, and guests raved about the food and service during and after the night was over. Would highly recommend them if you are looking for great service and someone conscious to your needs on your special day.

Cheryl created an amazing environment in our condo for a very special 40th wedding anniversary. The food and service were top end and an excellent alternative to a hi end restaurant that is oh so predictable. I'd be very happy to recommend Cheryl to anyone. As you Americans say....awesome!

This was my first experience working with a personal chef and I couldn't have asked for a better company to work with. Dawn's commitment to making my vision come to life was exceptional. She was always available and made this whole experience less stressful for me. The quality of her food and customer service far exceeded my expectations.

This was an amazing experience! We were traveling on vacation and wanted to have a nice meal after the kids went to bed. We were a party of 5 and Kim and her staff did an amazing job! The food, service, presentation, and clean up were all beyond my expectation. I would have her again and often!!!

Jenner really impressed us with her cooking. We live internationally and were in the Tampa-bay area for a few weeks this summer while having various friends and family visiting. So I could spend more quality time with them, I hired Jenner to prepare some meals for us each week, as sometimes we had as many as eight people visiting. She was very friendly and professional-always with a smile. She arrived on time and with all the ingredients needed...and my kitchen was always spotless when she left. Jenner worked effortlessly and quietly - but answered any questions we had as she went along. She cooked various types of meals for us over a 3-week period...from an amazing "New Orleans-style shrimp" boil that was to die for, to a finger-licking southern fried catfish, collard greens and macaroni and cheese meal. She also made sure to make some snacks for us to have in between the meals. She catered to our vegetarian requests when necessary. Every week she made us a superb dessert- my favorite was the upside down pineapple cake! But I must add that her guacamole is the best I have ever tasted and I am a Texan! The food she prepared was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. (She also seems very knowledgeable about the Tampa area and when asked, gave recommendations to a few places-especially a great hair salon I now feel I cannot live without!) Jenner is a sweetheart and obviously very passionate about her work. She did an outstanding job preparing meals for us and surpassed our expectations. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to hire Jenner again and look forward to working with her the next time we are in town!

I was looking for a chef because I'm super busy and I find cooking to be one more daunting thing I have to do each day. I thought about hiring a chef probably a year ago, but I feared it would be too expensive. I finally decided to go for it and posted my request on Thumbtack. Lisi responded almost immediately. I looked over her website and liked what I read so I gave her a call. I live a little further away than where she normally delivers and I'm a pescatarian (a vegetarian that eats seafood), but Lisi was willing to work with me and my needs. Ok, let's talk food-her food is amazing! Some of my faves are the Sesame Mahi, Vegetable Coconut Curry, Fennel and Carrots, Tuna and Bean Salad and the Zucchini Ratatouille. Lisi is always on time with her menu and deliveries and is super sweet. I highly recommend her! I'm so happy to have healthy, yummy meals delivered to me which cuts down on the amount of time I need to shop and clean up the kitchen. I was also pleasantly surprised how affordable it is!

First I would like to say that we have used Chef Gordon twice before (Both In NYC). We only reached out to him on the off chance he would know someone we could use while staying in Miami. To our surprise he stated he spends most of his winter commuting from NYC to the Miami/Miami Beach Area. Needless to say we were delighted. As always he brought the full court press with him from NYC. It was a pleasure not having to explain what we liked and didn’t like. He was great, the food was spectacular. We wound up keeping him for the full time we were here. When he says Farm To Table he really means it. Fresh fish straight from the docks. virtually any other meat or vegetables were fresh from harvest. For us he’s a keeper. Will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, anywhere. Thank You Again Gordo.

Once again we have had a great experience with Chica's catering. We just had them cater our 3rd party and as with our 2 previous parties, Chica's food and service was impeccable. We order a variety of menu items, set them on a table and our friends and their kids devour all of it. We actually had to make a second run back to Chica's to get more because it was so good! Try dining in also, our family enjoys going anytime but Taco Tuesdays are a good deal with bogo tacos and the margaritas are killer too!!! Thanks Chica's!!!!

Everything about this company was fantastic. The food was master chef quality and the prices were too good to be true! They were very professional, responsive and on time. They are willing to fit your budget with a stress free GOURMET meal. All you have to do is invite your guests. I would highly recommend them for any of your catered events. They were awesome...Thank you Antoine, Victoria and rest of team for making our party a success.

We hired Ellena couple of months ago as a Personal Chef for my husband and I, and have been more than thrilled with her service, quality of food and price point. She also went above and beyond to get the book that I had referenced for a special diet that I was trying to follow. She cooks for us once a week, four times a month. Would be happy to give a reference.

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.
