Chef Tyler and his team catered my mother's 70th birthday luncheon at my home for 40 guests. It was a wonderful event and the food was the highlight by far. The guests raved over the variety of the menu and how wonderful everything tasted. This was the first time I used Thumbtack and I was pleased that it all went so smoothly. Chef Tyler spoke with me about my initial thoughts on the event and about my mother and then created a menu that was spot on to what I was hoping to create. His team arrived promptly on the appointed day and got to work in my kitchen to prepare all the food fresh (and then his sous chefs helped serve as well). Not only was the food fantastic, but my kitchen was spotless when they left. There was a bit of a mix-up over my leftovers and when I reached out to Tyler he ameliorated the situation within the hour. I really enjoyed this experience of working with Tyler and I am hoping to hire him again for another milestone celebration later this year.

Chef Sylvia was a highlight of a weekend celebrating a bride-to-be in the mountains! She was easy to communicate with via email or phone, had helpful suggestions of menu, arrived early and was so nice to work with. Her food was delicious, worked with dietary requirements of the group, and left the kitchen sparkling clean! Also, her whole process was flawless from beginning to end and very affordable. We will certainly use Chef Sylvia again when we are back in the Asheville area! Thank you!

Chef Dave was wonderful! He was very quick to respond to emails and punctual at both the consultation and dinner. His food was incredible and his personality was friendly but unobtrusive. We loved having him in our home, recommend him to everyone and will certainly be using his services again!

Chef Reeves provided a four course in-home meal for a birthday party of 10. Communication beforehand was great, with easy selection of the courses to be served. Food prep and presentation was excellent. Would recommend and use again in the future.

I am SO glad I chose to hire Joya to be the private chef at my event. She cooked 5 meals for us + snacks all vegan. Not everyone at the event was vegan but everyone found ALL the meals delicious which was amazing. She was one time and on schedule for everything, so sweet, put a lot of love into her food/work and I truly hope to work with her again in the future. If you are thinking about hiring Joya definitely do it! You will not regret it.

I was looking for an option for my best friend's birthday. We had some guest coming in from out of town and we knew they would be going out at least one night of the weekend so we were looking for another option! I basically went on Google and searched "Personal Chefs in Charlotte" and it lead me to Thumbtack. I was like what the hell, I'll give it a shot! So, I did and I received back several quotes almost immediately. I messaged each back and also checked out their profiles and searched them to see what I could find. I like to see pictures and I'm definitely a review reader. Another thing I'm big on is a personal connection. I can tell within a few minutes of talking with someone if I'm going to like that person or not. From the very first messages with Chris, I knew he was our guy. He was crazy quick at responding, which myself and our Type A birthday girl loved and I could tell was just a laid back guy. We are completely open to any food as long as it's good so I pretty much let him take the lead. He introduced the idea of a an Italian tasting menu to me and gave me some options and with the approval of the BG, we made our selections. He got to our party spot right on time, brought everything he needed and was very professional. He got to work right away getting everything started and we knew right off the bat he was going to work with us. He entertained all of our crazy questions while still working and just went with the flow. His food was AMAZING. Everything was so good. A few of us tried things we had never had and were pleasantly surprised. I believe in supporting small businesses and this guy was definitely worth every penny we spent. I will most definitely reach out to Chris in the future for my entertaining needs! Thank you Chef Chris for being awesome and putting up with us!!!
