I couldn't have been happier with our experience with Chef Most Wanted. It was my first time hiring a personal chef. Right from the start, Chef Rich was great to work with. I appreciated his prompt and clear communication on how things would work, and his help picking the menu. I had him do a gourmet breakfast for family and guests as part of a special birthday weekend for my husband. The breakfast was a huge hit! The food was fresh, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! At the end of the weekend many people said the breakfast was their favorite part of the celebration. We will definitely use Chef Rich again, and hopefully soon!

We have had many private chefs and caterers. We have found our “go to” chef service. Food was amazing. Mike and Matt were fun. They entertained the kids at the bar as they cooked, served.. and cleaned up. If you have never had a personal chef, try them. If you have before, uplevel to them. And by the way.. the cost was a bargain. Dinner for 8 with wine and beer pairing Less than $100 per person Insanely goid!

I surprised my husband with a personal chef to prepare breakfast for us for his birthday. The experience was amazing! Karen was very nice and professional. She came up with the menu and brought everything with her. She even cleaned up after. We will definitely be using her again!

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

We hired Tracy to be part of a two chef team for a baby shower for 70+ guests at our home and were extremely pleased. She was punctual, very helpful and was not hesitant to do whatever needed to be done. We will certainly hire her again.

Where do I begin with how amazing Kristen was? I requested the assistance of a server to simply help refill the buffet at our event. Kristen went absolutely above and beyond from start to finish. She arrived early and brought all sorts of little tricks of the trade to make my party amazing ie. drink and food garnishes, miniature forks, and even a few mixers for drinks. She put together an amazing cheese platter that everyone was talking about. She made everyone feel welcome and there was never a moment where I worried about a thing - she was always on top of things. From watching if anyone need anything - to cooking more when we were running low - she even cleaned up the kitchen and stayed much longer then I told her I would need her. I have given her name to many people and I can't imagine having an event without her help. After learning that she is an amazing chef, I look forward to having her cater all of our future events. I am definitely one of the pickiest people you'll ever meet and don't typically write these reviews - so if I've gone through this much, you can only imagine how amazing Kristen truly is.

Chef DiMaria made a golf group of 10 a WONDERFUL dinner. The menu consisted of antipasto, salad, lasagne, chicken vesuvio, and cannoli. Wine and Sambuca was included in the price. The food was FABULOUS!! Frank did all of the clean up. It was a great way for a group to have a casual evening of fine food and socializing. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Diana's service was extraordinary! The food she prepared was well thought out, freshly prepared, wide in variety, and absolutely delicious! Our guests commented on how they really enjoyed the dishes served. Just wonderful! In addition to the wonderful appetizers and main entrees, Diana's talent shined through her creation of an exquisite cake. Her creation was both beautiful and scrumptious! ...almost too pretty to cut and serve! We truly enjoyed it! I will gladly turn to Couture Cake again when planning a large family event. Diana helped me provide for over sixty people with a gracious and caring demeanor. Her personal service is not often found today and I considered it a real gift! I highly recommend Couture Cake because of the wonderful food and service offered by Diana. Very special, indeed!

Wow! I couldn't have asked for a better chef. Chez Mikey and his sous chef Diana were on time, dressed professionally, prepared delicious food, cleaned up, and gave us a marvelous experience. He worked with our budget and was very friendly. The dishes were plated very nicely. Not only was the food excellent but very appealing to the eye. I will definitely hire him again and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a personal chef.

THE best personal chef experience that I’ve had. Mark is an extremely gifted chef yet friendly and unpretentious. He’s very attentive to your needs and goes above and beyond to deliver while setting the ambiance that’s complimentary to your style. He used to be my best kept secret but he definitely should be sharing his gifts with the world :)

Chef Wood prepared my seafood birthday brunch. And it was amazing. I found him by searching a hashtag on IG, and must I say it was a very successful meal with meeting him through IG, LOL!! A brunch must have, is French toast and he made the best French toast that I EVER had. He arrived at my home at the expected time, he brought his own pots and serving pans, and he cleaned up prior to leaving. Everyone enjoyed it, he was even booked by one of my guests.

We hired Girl and the Kitchen for a small party. The food was amazing, service was great and they cleaned up the kitchen after. Also for those that enjoy cooking or want to learn, the chefs are more than happy to share their knowledge.

    Hired "By The Graham" as a private chef for my brother's bachelor party. Wanted to try something different than just ordering pizza or going to a restaurant. Not only was the food amazing, but I was really impressed with Dillion's professionalism and knowledge when it comes to cooking. Will definitely be using "By The Graham" the next time I need a Chef!

    My lovely Girlfriend brought Mariela in to cook for my 30th birthday and it could not have been better. She came over to our place, groceries and tools in hand, and put together one of the best meals we've had in a long long time. She also gladly cooked up pretty much everything she bought, so we've been eating leftovers all week. Don't hesitate to bring her in, you won't be disappointed.

    I really never write reviews, but Alvin Yu and his team were amazing! Our guests really raved about all the food. (I need to get his recipe for the Asiago Crusted Chicken Breast - so tender!). And his servers and sous chefs really made the event. Their attention to detail and lovely personalities really made the atmosphere. They were so helpful beyond what I could have even asked for. We had 2 passed appetizers, then salad, 4 entrees and 3 sides served family style for 44 guests and everything was delicious and well timed. Alvin totally understood what I wanted and was able to seamlessly accommodate special dietary needs. He was very responsive to all my questions throughout the planning process and seriously made the event really so easy on me! And they really made our guests of honor feel very special, too. They really go above and beyond. A huge thank you to Fyusion Dining for making our event such a success!
