I recently had a few friends come visit from Chicago. I wanted to do something different, so I decided to get a personal chef for a evening in. I searched and found Zacki's Culinary Creation and Chef Zacki. I was very impressed by her food and the ability to have them interact with us when cooking the dinner. The cook in your nook was perfect for our evening. Thank you Zacki. I look forward to our next catering together.

For my mom's 70th birthday, we decided to have a surprise dinner party. (For the record, I'm a professional event planner based in DC and work with a number of hotels, chefs and caterers.) After talking to Chef Nico for less than a minute, I knew he was the one for this special occasion. He came up with a super creative menu, was attentive to every detail, and enchanted all of the dinner guests. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

My wife was turning 40 and I wanted to do something special for this occasion. We hired Chef Matthew to prepare a meal for about 15 friends and the experience could not have been better. From the planning to the execution of the 5 star meal, Matthew was a consummate professional. His meal was filled with delightful tastes and culinary creativity. My wife and friends were blown away. We are so happy we chose Chef Matthew!

We’ve used Em’s catering for both large events and small meals (like a delivery meal to a new mama). She is consistently professional and her food is great. While some chef’s excel in one particular area, all of Em’s food (from appetizers to main dishes, sides, and desserts) are wonderful. Our personal favorites are: Beef Wellington, mushroom risotto, grilled romaine Caesar, warm pumpkin cake, and her yearly Christmas cookies. (I have Em bake cookies for all of my kids teachers) She’s sweet and easy to work with-highly recommend!

Oak and Dagger was a pleasure to work with start to finish-- from the planning of our event to the execution! Our particular event was a 50-60 guest “meet and mingle” with some business training mixed in. We did an hour of “brews and bites” followed by a PowerPoint seminar and Q&A session, spending the remainder of our evening socializing and relaxing in the fun brewery atmosphere with our customers. Oak and Dagger was an excellent venue for this with their back bar dedicated to our event, and the semi-private seating area was ideal for our presentation. Assistant General Manager Rachel Bender responded quickly to my information request with details, pricing, and availability. Chef Monica Molina worked with me on selecting food and beverages to fit our budget and a range of tastes and it was delicious and presented well-- not your average, boring banquet food. On-site, the event staff was friendly, helpful, and pro-active in meeting our needs for setup, service, and breakdown-- thank you to our server, Drew, and bartender, Duke. Their location is convenient and easy to find, and parking is ample and free. Whether you’re planning a personal or business event, this professional event planner highly recommends considering Oak and Dagger Public House!

The Tasty Alternative- Chef Veronique was nothing less of wonderful! Five amazing courses, beautiful presentation, and professional etiquette all surpassed my expectations for a beautiful romantic evening. She was very easy to get in contact with and responded with details. Her personality was warm and friendly and it was pleasure having her as a personal chef for a very private intimate dinner in my home. I'm looking forward to planning our next event and using her services!

Jason skills as chef are stupendous. He has a very great detail for his dishes. One that I've tried, a pasta with a sauce of tomatoes and basil which coordinates to not over force his meaty flavor.

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

I have never tasted such good cakes made to order. I have missed Katelyn immensely since she left Charlotte to move to Raleigh. She is the best pastry chef. You will not regret ordering from her. My favorite carrot cake and the apple with spice. Miss you girl!!!

Chef Gwen did an excellent job from planning to the execution of the meals. The food was very flavorful. Both my husband and I have enjoyed the meals. She took great care with preparing the food and cleaning up afterwards. I will recommend her to others. Milicia

Everything about our dinner was absolutely amazing. Chef Madison carefully planned out a delicious 6 course meal for our friends that was impressive and of the best quality I have seen in this area. We will definitely use Cordial Nights again for all our upcoming private dinner events.
