Personal Chef

I’ve booked a crab bake with Simone Private Chef Services for May 2021 and so far the planning process has been a breeze. Kelly is super responsive, so professional (which I REALLY appreciate) and she’s been very transparent when it comes to pricing. I look forward to the day of my event with them, they are very clearly passionate about their work.

Chef Efraim and Kelly went above and beyond to make our 4 Course Valentine's Day Dinner a special surprise for my wife. Everything was delicious and the presentation was 5 stars. They were attentive to detail and very concious of both being present throughout the meal while balancing a private dining experience. I can't begin to say enough good things about our service and the quality of the meal we received and look forward to having them back again for future dinner parties and events!

Chef Efraim and Kelly are beyond flexible and attentive. We had a major life event and they were able to make adjustments on the fly. Their initial consultation was extremely detailed and as this was my first time going through this process, they walked me through it step by step. They are fully transparent with their cost and explained their invoice and policies thoroughly. When it came to menu creation, we were able to curate a dream scenario for me and my wife to celebrate her birthday.  The experience of the evening was a delight and almost magical. Chef Efraim and Kelly were outstanding throughout their time in our home. It was understated in my mind how extremely relaxing this was. I made myself a cocktail as the first course was being prepared. We sat down for dinner and enjoyed each plate. The food was exceptional and we were blown away as each dish arrived at the dinner table. It was a special night and it was a luxury having this team over. Lastly the kitchen was clean at the end of the night. 4 thumbs up here. I highly recommend them. Enjoy!!  Thank you Chef Efraim and Kelly!
