Chef Diane created a great French dinner for my mom's 60th Birthday. It is always so hard to find something exciting to do for my mom's birthday (December 23rd) because it is so close to Christmas, but Chef Diane made it happen! The food was amazing and she was so professional! It was so great to be able to relax and enjoy time with the family without having to worry about cooking. My mom wanted something different than she has had before and Chef Diane went out of her way to create a unique French Experience for us all. I would recommend her for anyone who is looking to have a unique dinner party or just to have her cook some wonderful dinners for you and your family!

We went through several iterations to finalize the menu for our baby shower. Chef Kev worked with us to keep it within our budget and delivered the food right when he promised to. The food was delicious and several guests let us know how much they enjoyed it. We definitely plan to use Chef Kev again for our next event.

I HIGHLY recommend Chef Serge. He was our personal chef for my wife’s 40th birthday dinner and he made the celebration memorable. He was approachable and easy to work with since the moment we started coordinating and discussing dinner options, and he made the whole experience very enjoyable. He cooked a five-course menu for 11 people, and everyone was impressed with his well-prepared, top quality dishes (we are still talking about his delicious duck confit!). We paired the food with 1975 wines and the pairing was perfectly balanced. I am very glad that he cooked for us, and would definitely hire him again as personal chef in the future.

Chef Chris Spear is in one word, amazing. If I didn't limit myself to one word, I'd also add in: incredible, talented, entertaining, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant. My wife and I just had our third son a month prior, and it was her birthday and we were not able to go out and celebrate due to the wonderful chaos of having a new little one tethered to mom. Chris was able to bring more than just the restaurant experience to us with this incredible service he provides. We learned new cooking techniques, flavor combinations, recipes that are easy for weekly meal making with little-to-no time, and more. As advertised, Chris brought everything: the ingredients, the dishes, the serving ware, the napkins and place settings; EVERYTHING. And then he took it all home with him. Chris spent almost a solid 5 hours with us and never made us feel rushed or hurried throughout the whole experience. He explained all his dishes, discussed the ingredients with us, gave us his perspective and thoughts on the dish, all while giving us stories about his own personal life and family and how he got to where he is today. He clearly loves what he does and it shows through on the food. My wife and I cannot wait to remake the dishes, and have already started looking at new cookware that Chris recommended. Chris even gave us links and recommendations for recipes that were not part of the meal experience we had signed up for. Chris clearly cares about the food and experience first, which is beyond refreshing and hopefully what helps set him above other chefs. We have told both of our entire families and friends about this experience and could not recommend Chris more. I hope people believe us and take the opportunity to have a similarly amazing experience with Chris. Ours was truly a great experience, and for that, the least we can do is say THANK YOU to Chef Chris!

We hired Chef Matt to cook for our exteneded family to celebrate our parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Our parents are from Bolivia and they were thoroughly impressed with the authentic Silpancho Cochabambino that Matt prepared. He was easy to work with and didn't miss a beat, even without a server. We will definitely work with Matt again and would highly recommend him.

First of all, the food was absolutely divine -- what a burst of flavor. We were not looking for anything fancy or elegant (the event was a mini IT conference), and the #1 requirement I most desired was delicious food that everyone (including the folks in my field with a plethora of allergies or food preferences) could build for themselves, a la Chipotle-style eating. Not only did Chef Veronique and her associate Kerry come through, but they were incredibly professional, quick-thinking in the face of complications, and obviously put a lot of heart into their work -- from food to delivery and setup. They hit my budget right on target, and everyone (including an attendee who was pretty much allergic to most things) complimented the food all day. I couldn't be happier with them.

Very tasty and authentic foods. As far as catering, the service was great and professional. I also had the opportunity to use Nasrin as a personal chef for my dinner party and it was a breeze to accommodate to the needs of my family. I would definitely recommend to all.

Chef Aneva was absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a personal chef experience or a learning/cooking class experience. My family and I had her over at our house to do an instructional cooking session. The birthday boy wanted to learn to do homemade pasta and Aneva came up with several menu options for us to choose from. We went with a ricotta and herb stuffed tortellini in a red sauce with sausage as well as a spinach stuffed chicken breast over fettucini alfredo. Everything was made from scratch and was absolutely delicious. We also started with a Kale, pear, goat cheese, and prosciutto salad with a delicious homemade vinaigrette dressing. For dessert, Aneva prepared a Panna Cotta ahead of time since it needs some time to prep, but we helped with making a homemade whipped cream topping. She even said to save the extra whipped cream, mix some chocolate or other flavors in to it, and freeze it for a delicious ice cream-esque desert another time. Aneva is down to earth, outgoing, and very passionate about cooking. During every dish she told us of different ways you can mix it up and add different flavors or variations to any dish. She is truly an artist who lives, breaths, and thinks about cooking and recipes 24/7. We found the price she quoted us to be very reasonable and she didn’t charge us extra for us going over the allotted/planned amount of time (and we went over by a couple hours but only because we were all having so much fun!). She felt part of the family by the end and we can’t wait for an excuse to bring her back.

Brian, of Smoker' s Delight BBQ, was excellent to work with from the very start. He went above and beyond to make sure our special event was smooth! Now the food....friends and family are STILL talking about the food, and our event was 3 weeks ago! Delicious! I love how he does the prep. onsite--you get to see him throw down! The smells of the food cooking were amazing! Brian, my husband and I can't thank you enough! We look forward to working with you again!

Jackie was breathtaking. She was extremely professional and truly an amazing chef. The menu that I ordered was lump crab cakes with hollandaise sauce, quinoa with cranberry and heirloom tomatoes and sauteed asparagus with garlic sauce and the taste was out of this world. She topped the dinner off with an apple tarte tartin. Now, I usually eat at French restaurants all over the world because I'm a traveler but this experience I had with Jackie made me feel like I was in Paris at a French Bistro. I will hire her again for my daughter's graduation party this Summer and I can't wait. I am doing a Parisian theme party as my daughter is traveling abroad to France this summer. I have only great things to say about Jackie from start to finish

I was asked to complete the task of finding a caterer for breakfast for a corporate meeting of 80 people within 4 days and to have them deliver the food before 6am. Thomas Franklin at Columbia Chef Catering was the 3rd business I had spoke to regarding my function. He was so pleasant and when he said yes to the 5:30am drop off I was sold!! Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making our function so much more pleasurable.

Working with Anna was a pleasure! She adjusted to my dietary requests with true professionalism and checked in with me regularly before my event. The food was delicious! Perfectly seasoned and fulfilled all of my requests for the event. Her presentation was beautiful. She was punctual and true to her word at every stage. I would hire her again in a second!

I am so happy to write this review for the excellent service provided by Mary. Mary is not only a great professional chef; but she is also enthusiastic about her cooking and takes the time to understand her clients needs. I must add that she is a wonderful person to interact with. Food plays an integral part of my family's day; and I have no hesitations knowing Mary has prepared our meal! I know when I open the package containing the food prepared by her, I'll be in for a delicious treat!! I wish Mary all the best and will continue to work with her for nutritious and delicious meals.

I had an office brunch for about 35-40 people. First things first, the food was AMAZING!! The chicken and waffles was a big hit and the homemade spicy syrup was so creatively delicious. Seriously I've never had anything like it. The customer service was excellent, she went above and beyond to make this event easy for me. The staff thoroughly enjoyed, and she worked with my not so generous budget. Highly recommended!

Iyea is wonderful! She has so many cooking ideas that easy fun and quick so you're not in the kitchen all day. She knows great cooking tips that you wouldn't normally see on recipes. I love that she has a bubbly and positive spirit. She made cooking fun for me when I thought it was just stressful and discouraging. I love cooking now. It is like my new hobby!

It has been (and will continue to be) the best cooking experience I have encountered. Dorina's recipes, and her ability to share them (with a wonderful 'gift of gab') makes one eager to run home and prepare each and every one of them. The ingredients are healthful and create very tasty dishes! The classes are fun, and each member has the opportunity to take part in the cooking process. Had I discovered Dorina years ago, I certainly would have become a better homemaker (although it's NEVER too late) I must say, I am so proud to share my new recipes with family and friends, and the 'little tricks' Dorina has shared with us along the way.Bravo, Dorina!!!

Our experience with Talk Of Di Town during our wedding was nothing short of wonderful! We initially wanted a Caribbean themed dinner, however we changed our mind and they were able to offer us a good variety which exceeded our expectations. We decided on more American and Southern dishes and they gave us mouthwatering options to choose from. Our family and friends enjoyed the food and overall customer service. I am having a birthday party later this year and have already secured them to cater my event. Looking forward to working with them in the future.

Chef Nikki is the BOMB.COM!! She and her husband Paul are excellent in the kitchen and on the grill... She can cook for me and my husband every day if she wants too, we will never turn her down...😂😂😘😘Every meal is excellent and tasteful down to the deserts. Nikki is very clean and sanitary, you don't have to worry. She takes her business and license very serious... I definitely recommend her for your next meal, your next desert or your next catering event... Also, make sure you check her out for your hair care needs on IG @Nikko.stylez.

Anna is absolutely amazing! She was our personal chef for a number of years until we moved out of the area. In that time, she made unbelievable meals for us that accommodated both dietary restrictions and food preferences. We also hired her to host a huge multi-course birthday dinner for my mother-in-law that was easily one of the best dinners we've ever had, all in the comfort and intimacy of our home. If you're looking for an amazing chef for any size meal or event, Anna is the go-to Chef!

I was tasked with planning a last minute holiday party for my Coast Guard Headquarters office and assumed I would be scrambling to find a caterer. Luckily I came across Thumbtack, which put me in touch with Tortoise & Hare. Tortoise & Hare provided me with a wide variety of options that were all within my price range, which was greatly appreciated since my budget was limited. I spoke with Katie to make our arrangement, and she allowed me to keep it open ended while I finalized our headcount and menu selections. Katie also provided me the security information to get the caterers onto base, which I assume is an unusual request. Erik handled the set up the day of the event, and he arrived early and made sure everything was in order before departing. The food was good and there was more than enough to go around. We were even able to hook up the base facilities team with lunch. Overall it was a pleasure to work with Tortoise & Hare, and I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking to cater an event.
