I hired Chef Ryan to cook for my husbands 70th birthday. He arrived early with his assistant Jackie. They come with everything! My table looked gorgeous and when we sat down to eat we felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant. The menu was exactly as we planned it and the food was delicious. At the end of the evening they left my kitchen immaculate. I would highly recommend Chef Ryan and Jackie for any special event you might be planning. Stacey M

the BEST date night!!! My boyfriend and I wanted to do something special for valentine's day, and instead of getting each other gifts, we decided to have a chef make us a private meal + guide us through how to make the meal. We had no idea what to expect, but when i tell you expectations were OVER EXCEEDED that is an understatement. Chef Ryan and ,his partner and lovely wife, Jackie were outstanding. They brought excitement, energy, and created a wonderful vibe for me and my boyfriend's special night. Additionally, the food was OUTSTANDING. Chef Ryan really brought us Michelin Star Quality food to the comfort of our home. I could rave on and on about how incredible the experience was, but I just recommend you work with Chef Ryan on your own to find out -- I promise you won't be disappointed!

I hired Chef Ryan for my father’s birthday dinner. It was beyond all my expectations. The food was perfect. The service was of a top quality 5 star restaurant. He was so helpful creating the perfect t menu for this special event. He also went out of his way to make my father feel very special and cared for. Every detail from the beautifully decorated table to never having an empty glass of wine to the presentation of food on the plate was done to perfection. The food was some of the best I have had and everyone cleaned their plates including my kids. We wanted for nothing and they left our kitchen cleaner than they found it. I would not only hire him again in a heartbeat I would 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone.

There aren’t enough good things I could say about this experience with Chef Ryan. I booked him for a surprise pre-Valentine’s and birthday dinner for my boyfriend. From the moment I reached out to the day of our dinner there was great communication and high level professionalism. The dinner was tailored to our requests and Chef Ryan really hit it out of the park. They brought everything with them from cookware, to flatware and even a beautiful tablescape. The food was top notch, the service impeccable and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. If you are on the fence about booking, I will say just go for it. You will not be disappointed! It is worth every penny.
