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!

We had a dinner party for 8 people...due to some scheduling issues, we changed the time on Lindsey twice and she was beyond flexible and accommodating. She arrived on time with extra help that we weren't even planning on - Lindsey and co will friendly and enjoyable to have at our home - in fact, we wish there was room at the table for them to join us for dinner as well. The meal was delicious and everything was amazing! Lindsey will definitely be our go to personal chef for future events - such a fun evening!

Aram and Sarah were fantastic and they served up an awesome Mother's Day brunch. Aram's creativity, skill and professionalism was unparalleled. I have hired many many chefs for various occasions but I would say we enjoyed the food and camaraderie of this particular meal more than any of them. i would highly, highly, highly recommend Aram if you have a private event and you need the best! - Rich

I was searching to hire a personal chef since I was to fly back home for the holidays but found out I had a bad herniated disc causing me severe pain in my lower back and leg which threw a wrench in my home for the holidays.. anyhow..did a search on Google and Thumbtack...services popped up and I did a search near my parents residence and found Karen through TLC... Karen was amazing to work with and understood my situation completely.. She prepared a wonderful meal for my Dad's birthday which was a gift on Christmas Eve.. Both my parents loved the overall dinner and Karen too! I would highly recommend Karen in the NW Indiana area if you are looking to hire a personal chef!

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.

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!

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.

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.

So happy we chose Chef Val and her staff for our corporate event! The presentation was wonderful, they arrived on time, and the cost was better than any other proposal we received. Everyone loved their food, but the biggest hits were the Deviled Eggs, the Garlic Parmesan Chicken Bites, and the Triple Chocolate and Red Corvette Velvet Cupcakes! I would definitely and use them again for our next event. Thanks so much Chef Val, you were a delight to work with!

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!
