Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

I hired Chris to prepare a 3 course meal plus passed apps and dessert for an intimate gathering in my home this past weekend. This was my first time hiring a chef for a personal event and it couldn't have gone better. Chris is professional, yet engaging and the food was fresh and delicious. The experience was further enhanced by the personalized service and wine pairing suggestions provided by Roman. Chris brought everything he needed with him and you could eat off the floor by the time he left. Chris and Roman also worked wonders my meager dinnerware and serving utensil options (note to self to fix that for future parties). As a special touch, Chris even whipped up some homemade mac and cheese for our younger guests. I will absolutely hire Chris and again and if you are smart - you will too.

I hired the chef to go to my daughter Apt. for a special birthday and wedding Anniversary and she said the experience was great and the chef was so nice and professional she would definitely refer him to anyone who wants to have a private chef. My dealing with him to get organize with surprising my daughter was also great. Thank You chef Stinnett.

Just paid a deposit to book Melissa for my event next weekend. Yay!!!!!! This is the 1st time I have hired a professional chef to cater for our monthly dinner party and had a lot of questions and concerns before going into it. Melissa has been extremely prompt, professional and patient in addressing all of my issues and I am really looking forward to working with her. I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.

Charly is a fantastic chef! I hired him to prepared a 5 course brunch for my wife and I on Mother's Day. He sent a proposed menu and then worked with us to customize it to our preferences. The food was absolutely delicious! He was friendly, professional and on time. I would definitely hire Charly again for the next special occasion and strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of hiring a personal chef. Thanks Charly!

Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!

Chef Craig came to my house to cook dinner for 8 people to celebrate my mother's retirement. He sent me sample menus well in advance of the event and we chose our favorites from those menus. Chef Craig cooked to our preferences while also improvising using his creativity. He was very receptive to those of us who had dietary restrictions (vegetarian, food allergies), and adjusted the courses accordingly. He was easy to work with and the food was fantastic! He and his server left the kitchen spotless and they were both fun to talk to. I would absolutely use him again.

Love! She’s an awesome cook and is very accommodating on dietary restrictions- I am on the Whole30 diet and she has been very amazing with cooking with these restrictions. I trusted her with creating the menu on her own initially & then in the middle of the week we discussed my likes and dislikes. She is always looking to improve and all of her food is extremely fresh! You can taste it. I get 5 breaksfasts, 5 lunches & 5 dinners from her & I haven’t had one bad meal. She is so great with communicating as well & is very responsive. I look forward to many more meals! -L

Let my start by saying we have used Gina and her staff on many occasions at our home on the East End as well as in Manhattan. I can guarantee you that the service and quality is outstanding. I have recommended her to many of our friends and family. From planning the event to making sure it ran smoothly the day of, her organization and professionalism was top notch. Her bartenders, servers, chefs are one of a kind. I highly recommend using her!!! Kathy S.

I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for us—and was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors d’hoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

Gordon is an extremely creative and innately talented chef. Since becoming aware of a severe gluten sensitivity, I have been eating healthy at home thanks to him-I am happy to say no more restaurants for me! When planning my meals, Gordon is very attentive to my requests. His patients and versatility keep even gluten free food interesting and tasty. I have noticed that he uses only fresh ingredients and takes pride in using them to create and present an incredibly delicious gluten free meal every time. It is apparent that he loves seeing people enjoy his food. Though I am amazed at how easily Gordon has been able to adapt my favorite dishes to a gluten free alternative, I am most delighted with the yummy and elaborate desserts that one would never guess are GF! If you or a family member have dietary restrictions (and even if you don't) there's no doubt that you will want Gordon to be your personal chef! Don't hesitate to call and ask what he can do for you.🍴😃🍴 Sent from my iPad

We had Chef Dave here for my fiancee's 60th birthday. I admit I was nervous because I had never hired a personal chef and I didn't know Dave at all, other than the reviews I read. Dave put my fears to rest by his prompt replies, his friendly, yet professional demeanor and boy was I happy that he was early. Now for the food....we loved what he prepared. The crabcakes and Mozzarella Sushi delish and the chick and salmon entrees were fab!!! I'm not even a cheesecake lover and I couldn't get enough of that graham cracker cheesecake. And Chef Dave is personable, clean and has a wonderful attitude. I highly recommend him for any type of event or party and you will not be disappointed. Thanks Dave for making our night even more special!!
