I connected with Chef Tony via Thumbtack many months ago because I was interested in hiring a personal chef for a "girls' weekend" I was hosting in July. After communicating with Chef Tony just a few times, I knew, without a doubt, he was the right person for the job. Not only does have fantastic credentials, he also has a personality to match! Needless to say, my guests and I were beyond pleased with the meal and service provided by Chef Tony, not to mention Diane, the most amazing server I've ever met/seen! The food prepared by Chef Tony was absolutely delicious. That in itself would have made the evening great. BUT...when you couple that with the fact that he's a professional sommelier and does wine pairings throughout the entire dinner, the event was a huge success! I would absolutely hire Chef Tony again and have already recommended him to several friends.
Chuck and Marie arrived at our In-Laws home introducing themselves to all and promtly began preparing a 3 course amazing meal for the 4 of us. The odeovers were fantastic. We are a fairly social family. Therefore Chuck an Marie answered all our curious questions about the wonderful food Chuck was meticulously preparing. Chuck took great care in presenting each course with a spot on description of each dish. Conversation between all of us was easy and fluent. We really enjoyed Chuck and Marie and appreciated the gifts they have been given to have prepared a very special meal to celebrate my mother-in-laws Birthday. We will be getting the word out to promote the fabulous service Chuck and Marie offer. We would hire them for any special occasion in the future. Thanks Chuck and Marie!!!
Chef Dan was easy to work with and prepared an incredible three course meal for 10 people. Chef Dan dealt with all special dietary requests with ease, and brought in a mixologist to help with cocktails and wine pairings. Chef Dan was an integral part of the success of the night, and we would recommend him without reservation.
Our experience with Anton and his assistant was beyond amazing. Everyone has an expectatIon of how they want their event to be presented. From a sit down dinner wIth cocktail hour for 25 people in our home for thanksgiving. The PRESENTATION was phenomenal. it looked like a Norman Rockwell painting, the turkey, the ham, the gluten free dishes, all the family favorites that we requested. Done to perfection. This was the first holiday meal that I was able to enjoy my guests and not worry about cleaning up afterwards. Everyone raved about the food. Plenty of leftovers that didn't go to waste. We had take home containers for everyone. That was such a hit. That about 10 later we had our company holiday feast in our home catered by Anton. He was able to cater to all dietary needs. From vegan, to paleo, to very upscale palate pleasing dishes. So we challenged Anton one more time, for Christmas eve with our loved ones of 27 give or take. We asked him to do the Italian feast of the seven fishes. Omg is all I can say. What a presentation, from the cocktail hour before dinner, then our sit down dinner with mussels,scallops,clams, and crab. Then we had wrapped filet mignon cooked to order for each person along with grilled vegetables and an assortment of gluten free and vegan dishes to please everything. Even the homemade ice cream that Anton makes himself is yummy. He does not rush you to finish and I appreciated sooo Much. We had lil ones to tend to, so we didn't get a chance to all sit at once sometimes. Anton made us feel like a royalty in our castle, and he was our personal chef. If we could rate him at ten stars, that still wouldn't be enough. He is very versatile in his cooking and preparation and presentation of the meals he prepares. I recently switched sd cards in my phone, or I would have posted some pictures. When I locate,I will post. Price wise, he is reasonable and will work within your Budget and still give you the most enjoyable experience. Champagne dreams and cavier wishes should be one of Anton tag lines. I will say, in the future, the sooner you can plan your event, the better your chances of having Anton fulfill your desire to WOW your guests. Thank You Anton and family, for making our holiday gatherings something to remember .
Kim has been helping me support my close friend in battling breast cancer. Kim has been preparing wonderful meals for the family, including fun bites and snacks for 3 kids. Everyone has really loved the food, and Kim has been very helpful and flexible in meal planning. I'm so glad I found Kim, her hard work has been making a huge difference for my friend during a difficult time.
I hired Greg Evans and Kulinary Kings to cater a dinner party for 9. Because it was the first Friday in Lent, Greg needed to prepare meat and fish dishes. He prepared sumptuous shrimp skewers, chicken kabobs, mahi-mahi, wild rice and asparagus. It was not only delicious, but the portions were so generous I could have easily fed twice as many people. The food was delivered on time and perfectly prepared. Greg is a personable, flexible chef that was easy to work with in planning the meal. His delicious and creatively prepared food received rave reviews from all of my guests. I will definitely hire him again and highly recommend Kulinary Kings.
Francis was great! He prepared a great meal. He was well prepared, neat, and personable!! I’d hire him again!!!
Have had catering services on many occasions from Celestial Touch, one being my rehearsal dinner. The food consistently has great flavor and well presented. Have also had the pleasure of great service and much enthusiasm in the planning process for events.
This is will be my second time using FIG for a catered dinner at my home. On the previous occasion FIG delivered a tremendous five course meal. Not only was the food amazing, but they tailored a menu that was specific to my tastes, incorporating unique flavors and fresh ingredients. The wine was perfectly paired for each course and I could not have been happier with the service. Overall, myself and my guests had a wonderful evening and the best part was I didn't have to do a thing. I will definitely using FIG again this fall and also for the holiday season.
AMAZING! Class act start to finish. Food was delicious, the service was on point and her personality sparkles. Hire her!! She will make your job as the host look easy!
Dena was excellent. Food and service were top notch. She was very flexible in developing ideas for the menu and arrived right on time. Delivering the food and plating on site made the entire experience very convenient. Pricing was great too. I would recommend Dee-Lish and use her again.
John cooked for my 6th wedding anniversary. He Took his time to sit down with me to come up with a menu that me and my husband would enjoy. We started off simple with a salad where chef John used his homemade vinaigrette, the main course was a little more complex as he did lamb/ lobster surf and turf and very delicious and we even ended with dessert that was to die for! John cooked everything in our own kitchen which was amazing. Him and his team stayed throughout the whole meal and cleaned up everything I think our kitchen was cleaner than when they got there haha It was a great pleasure to have John and his team cook for us!
I contacted Jaggi to help me with ongoing meal prep on a weekly basis. She delivered packaged meals to my door and they were absolutely delicious and healthy! I was looking to change my diet habits and eat less fat-I was looking to get toned and lose weight but my overall goal was to live a healthier lifestyle. Jaggi was very patient and personable over the phone and in person- she came up with a customized menu for me and we emailed back and forth until I was satisfied with my weekly menu. The meals are super convenient because they come in plastic containers that I pop in the microwave while at work and at home. I have been using Jaggi's meal prep for one month and am already feeling more energy and feeling more toned! Highly recommend!!!!
Enjoi came out to our home and prepared such a delicious meal. Ronda was a pleasure to work with during the process of putting the menu together. Marcus is such a great chef! Professional, courteous... I can not say enough good things about Enjoi!!! Absolutely Loved!!!
First off Nancy is a really nice person and a great chef. She has been working with us for two weeks preparing some great meals for my family. The menus she has suggested have had a good variety and the food has been prepared in a healthy and tasty way. I was just thinking I can't wait to go to work tomorrow to eat some chicken pot pie Nancy made from scratch! She is a true professional that cooks with out effort and cleans up perfectly before leaving. She is highly recommended from me.
Donna has been preparing weekly meals for our family as a private chef for the last year and a half. A tireless and consummate professional, she has proved to be extremely imaginative in her menu design, and flexible in accommodating individual preferences. Her meals possess a certain elegant class and are delicious. We recommend her whole-heartedly!
Chef Chris prepared a birthday dinner for my husband and I (and our infant daughter). He was a pleasure to have in our home and cooked an excellent meal. Chris was professional, kind and cooked everything to our liking. We had great conversation and the evening went exactly as I had hoped. We were able to enjoy a nice dinner in the comfort of our own home. We highly recommend Chef Chris.
I am a highly disorganized and messy person. Yet when I work with Lori I always feel able to confront the task at hand and we inevitably make significant progress. Lori has helped me de-clutter, prepare for taxes, and generally pull myself together. Integral to what I am able to accomplish when we work together is the fact that she is non judgemental. We never talk about why I can't seem to do certain seemingly simple tasks, we just get down to the business at hand. Lori also has a fantastic library of resources. A+ all the way for Lori Olk!!!!
I have performed murder mysteries at the Tranquil Garden, and it’s always a good time! Pat Betty provides great ambience, hospitality, and meals.
Having the team at Be My Guest prepare and deliver our meals for us each week has been nothing but a pleasure. We used to have to go to the grocery store on the weekends (at the busiest times, it seemed), spend our time and money where we didn't want to, and somehow still have wasted food at the end of the week. Chef Manzo knows the perfect blend of taste and keeping with a clean-eating diet, and using Be My Guest has allowed our busy weeks to become less hectic. I would recommend Be My Guest to anyone who is looking for an alternative option to going grocery shopping every week, or is tired of having to prepare lunches/dinners every day!
Scott was awesome. He was always on time. The food he prepared was excellent. It was the first time I every had someone actually cook the food on premises. Highly recommend him and I will certainly use him again when the need arises. Bravo !!!!
