We recently planned a celebration for our 50th wedding anniversary in January 2016. It included an evening buffet meal for over 50 friends and family. Following an internet search on Thumbtack we chose Chef Tyler of Personal Chef to the Stars for our first private chef experience. We have a well equipped kitchen and wanted the enjoyment of watching the food being prepared in our own home versus having the meal catered. The food and service were fantastic - awesome hors d'oeuvres, delicious dinner buffet and a crowd stopping superb dessert. Chef Tyler delivered beyond our expectations - from the advanced planning to the super clean up and all our guests were impressed and delighted. We would recommend the personal chef experience with Chef Tyler to anyone.

I hired Chef Segreto for my wife's 40th birthday party. I was a little nervous about this because I had never hired a private chef before. He made the process extremely easy! His recommendations were spot on! He exceeded my expectations and was a true hit!!! Everyone at the dinner raved about him, his professionalism and especially his food! Definitely worth every penny! Would use him again for any special event in a heartbeat!!

Jessica was fantastic. She was personable, organized and a great chef (of course!) The price was very reasonable for the service provided. She left our kitchen counters clean, our dishwasher full of clean dishes and our tummies full of good food! Highly recommend her for your next party!

We had a phenomenal experience working with Top Hat and Liane. Liane and her staff showed up early to prepare giving us a lot of comfort. The food was phenomenal, as everyone loved the meal. We were able to customize the menu to our liking. The service with the bartender/server and chef were incredible. All in all, the event experience with Top Hat exceeded our expectations and we will most certainly use Liane and team again in the future. She took all the stress out of planning our first party.

Chef David Mallard provided an unforgettable dinning experience for my wife's surprise birthday. Our friend were blown away by a personal chef for intimate affair. David was professional and excited about the occasion. His food was flawless and his presentation top notch. I will not only use David Mallard again, I will recommend him to all of my friends. Thanks David!

I used Divine Cultural Cuisine for a private dinner party for 4. The Chef showed up on time with all the equipment. He was very careful and precise in cleaning his work area before and AFTER dinner. The party started at 7 pm and he showed up around 615pm to start prep work. Our menu was amazing and I am still full while typing this review. It consisted of Savannah calamari and crab stuffed shrimp as an appetizer. The portions were huge. We literally had to tell him to take the plate from us or we wouldn't have been able to eat the entree or dessert. I have to add, he applied some "orange sauce" to the shrimp that I literally would drink a bucket of. Chef Reeves is a saucier by trade so he knows what he is doing. Next, we were served a mixed green salad with a warm raspberry hazelnut dressing which was divine. Our main course was a surf and turf menu of orange soy glazed salmon and NY strip with mixed veggies and potato cakes. I don't know where to start. The steak was cooked perfectly. Salmon was cooked so well that I am troubled that I may never be able to cook salmon in my household again. And this orange soy glaze. He wouldn't tell us the ingredients but we tried to bribe him an undisclosed amount of money which he politely refused. I personally like grits so he made a side dish of his grits. They were the best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I am born and raised in the South. Just a wonderful meal from this point that was about to blow our minds. For dessert, might I add I don't even remember when he prepared it as we were stuffing our faces, creme brulee cheesecake with a white chocolate sauce and red velvet cake shooters with fresh fruit. The entire meal was better than I ever expected. My only regret is that we didn't know Chef Reeves and Divine Cultural Cuisine when we were getting married as we surely would have had him cater for us. We will be reaching out to him. We will be using him in the future and I truly believe if you have read all of this review up to this point, you will use him too.

Oh. My. Word. Let's chat sweets. So I'm not a sweet person at all. I'm not into pastries and deserts, but Sweet Afairs has totally changed me. Not only are her sweets the perfect level of richness, detail, presentation, and tang, but Jossie is probably the sweetest person alive. She is so easy to work with, accommodating, kind, and just as excited with the last treat as the first. I have worked with her on many events and private parties, and she put just as much attention into the smallest of brunch parties as she does with huge elaborate weddings. She is always open to ideas, and will even do experiments for all of my crazy wants to test them out! I would recommend her to anyone! I even use her around the holidays for delicious creations I may, or may not, tell my family I made myself. (They never believe me of course) So if you're looking for a unique desert bar, elaborate cake, or simplistic sweets with a modern twist. She is your girl. Being in a similar industry, I know that the product is only as good as the person backing it up. And this girl, her vision, her heart, her sweets, and her tarts are top notch! It's so great to find someone as sweet as the treats she puts on your plate! You will NOT be disappointed. And that's my guarantee!

As an owner of vacation and corporate rentals I have recommended Stan Gardner for catering to guests during their stay. He works with the guests to create a personal meal or meals during their stay. I have received rave reviews on everything. His meals are tasteful, unique, and affordable. The guests appreciate the health conscience ways he prepares the meals and his presentation is always impeccable. He personalizes the meals for each guest during their vacations from picnic type lunches during the summer to Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts during the holidays. I would highly recommend Mr. Gardner as a personal chef for a small family gathering or a large party.

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!!!
