My experience with Gotta Have It was exceptional from beginning to end. Chef Marra gave me exactly what I asked for, which was Panamanian cuisine. The food was great and my guests were impressed. The staff provided for service were professional and on point. Chef Marra worked with me on every level during this process. I would definitely work with this catering company again and I also recommend them to anyone.

Nikki prepared an amazing meal for 13 of our closest friends for my birthday. Every course was to die for! It was truly a meal than none of us will forget. I highly recommend Nikki Can Cook for any private party or gathering.

Our office hired John to make dinners for us and our families during busy tax season. It has been great! The meals have all been delicious and varied while still being kid friendly. We never get bored with his food. He brings the meals twice a week, and he and his assistant are always on time and very helpful. John is super attentive to our different diet needs/allergies and welcomes suggestions. The food looks and tastes fresh and is very health conscious. Exactly what we asked for. We have worked with other chefs in the past and none have been as wonderful as John. Our whole office highly recommends him.

Sabrina, the consummate professional, began this relationship of a great culinary experience first by showing her professionalism in making and keeping many planned site visits to my home. This was her attempt at ensuring she would familiarize herself with my kitchen and home. You see, Sabrina came highly referenced by my girlfriend as the perfect private chef to provide that one of a kind experience I was looking for my husband's birthday dinner. The menu was well planned and perfectly executed, not just by the delectable tastes and presentations, but with displays of full explanation of each course and the ingredients within. Detailed attention was given to every finite aspect of the entire evening. Thank you Sabrina for navigating around a colorful evening and remaining calm and professional in the face of it all. My husband and friends are still talking about the wonderful 7 course French inspired meal!! We absolutely LOVED it and can't wait to repeat!! Audrey Foster

Marcus and Devon did a fantastic job. We had a post game hot meal. The game was delayed due to weather so the meal was served 90 minutes later than expected. It was all still fresh and delicious. I highly recommend Pas de Deux. Talented chefs and service with a smile.

Wow, where do I start. First of all, I chose Adilah's Catering out of 4 other possible caterers. I chose her initially because she listened and understood what my goal was and how to accomplish that goal. My goal was to surprise my wife with a special dinner. She assisted me with locating a place for us to stay that had a full kitchen. She suggested two different places. One of medium cost and one of a higher cost. This showed me that she had great knowledge of the area and offered me, the client, the choice of how much I wanted to spend in a hotel. Then she suggested certain things for the menu that evening. However, she was never pushy and also allowed space for me to alter from the set packages. Lastly, the night was INCREDIBLE!!!! The food was cooked to PERFECTION and served hot! We could tell that all the food was fresh. Her husband was our server and was extremely polite and professional. I can not stress enough that the food and the service was unbelievable. As a former GA state games gold medalist (boxing) and a retired professional heavyweight boxer, I've had the opportunity to eat the foods of some of the finest restaurants and prepared by some of the world's top chefs. I can honestly say, that Chef Adilah is second to none of them!!!! You would be cheating yourself if you did not hire this lady for any of your catering needs. She was incredible!!!!

I surprised my wife on her 40th B-Day with a private chef to cook dinner for the family. Kelsey was GREAT, she was warm, kind and professional every step of the way. The food was fantastic too. We started with a cheese and charcuterie plate, and then a duck salad with organic greens, both were delicious.The main course was halibut with a citrus sauce and asparagus, it was perfectly cooked. The dessert was her signature creme brulee and it was outstanding. I'd highly recommend Kelsey to anyone needing a private chef for a special occasion.

I hired Chef Lou to prepare a birthday dinner with my 10 year old daughter who loves to cook. From our initial contact to discuss the date and menu, to the time Lou departed, the experience was nothing short of outstanding. He worked with me to accommodate all of my requests, while at the same time ensuring that he created the experience I envisioned. Also, the food prepared was amazing! My daughter shared that cooking with Lou was the "best birthday present ever!" Even my mother and mother in law, who are both great cooks, enjoyed the experience immensely. If you are thinking about hiring a personal chef, give Chef Lou a try. You won't be disappointed. Thank you, Lou, for making my daughter's 10th birthday such a special one!

John was booked for a private cooking lesson. He allowed us to adjust the menu based on food allergies and preferences. He brought all of the food as well as the recipes and providing great instruction throughout the lesson. We had an absolutely amazing time and the food tasted phenomenal. We will definitely be booking him again

I hired chef Cheryl Delish for designing awedding cake and it was outstanding! The cake was moist and flavorful. Not only did she design the cake, but my caterer backed out and she stepped right in. It was super treat when her sister, who is also a chef pitched in to help as well! I love her! Give her a shot, she is awesome!!

I hired PCF Creations for two 1-month periods to prepare Whole30 compliant meals for my wife and me. Chef Josue came like clockwork every Monday to prepare meals for the entire week. He was very clean, friendly, and gentle. His cooking is precise; flavors are gently pronounced and create harmony with subtones and nuances. I am pretty good in the kitchen myself so I needed this execution to be impressive, despite the somewhat limited ingredients allowed (again, whole30 program, which we also narrowed down a lot based on our likings). Chef Josue was very clean and fast. He also made the grocery shopping for us in a very effective way. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to improve diet or simply for a celebration meal. Very happy.

Excellent presentation of his craft; the " Tapas Tasting" event was very professional and the food was quite tasteful and heart healthy; he is an excellent cook; I'm sorry I did not think to photograph the entire presentation (see beef and pork entrée presentations below). Chef Anthony James put his best foot forward to earn our business; we were quite at ease with his hospitality and left stuffed. Thanks Chef Anthony James of Distinguished Palate for an afternoon well worth the trip. Yes, of course, we've hired him!! Excellent experience!!!

Chef JRod catered one of my events hosting around 30 ppl. His selection options and process was professional and sooo on point. I loved the food but my guests raved about the food more than I did! The presentation was beautiful and he added an extra touch of elegance to my event that I could've not even imagine. I look forward to working with him again. Keep up the great work!
