Our group hired Chef Antonio for a bachelor party and he was amazing! He was very responsive and worked with us on catering a menu that would suit everyone based on their allergies and spice tolerances. He took the time to sit down and call to plan out the menu. His tiramisu was one of the best ones we’ve ever had! Would highly recommend for any event that you want to make special!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • Italian • Mexican / Latin American • American - casual • Vegetarian or vegan • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

I collaborated with JW Events for a milestone birthday dinner. My goal of the dinner was to have a private and specialized curated dinner experience for my guests and I. I started planning two months in advance, so I was able to coordinate with James as we got closer to the event date. James was always responsive, professional and extremely kind in his interactions with me. Truly felt like I was partnering with someone who was just as excited about my birthday dinner as I was. James created a menu based on my cuisine of choice and provided me with some great options to select from. When I asked for some modifications to the menu items, he accommodated which showed his flexibility and collaborative spirit! James rose to the occasion in every way, even accommodating a date change as a result of venue availability. This was extremely helpful since I was nervous I would have to find another chef for the date, which was not needed thankfully. The night of the event, James and his staff showed up on time and started getting ready as soon as they got there. The venue's elevator was small and despite all the items they had, they were able to maneuver successfully without any assistance from myself. The staff was gracious in helping me set the table based on the vision I had in my head and utilized the venue space really well. The actual dinner and drinks were amazing! I was blown away by the presentation of the canapés and drinks. My favorite meal was the Mexican street corn salad, with the edible flowers *chef's kiss* The overall meal and experience was 10/10. James and his staff were sociable with myself and the guest, which is such a nice add given how busy they were providing a service for the event. They also worked extremely well with the venue staff. The entire night was beyond my expectations! I would recommend JW Events to friends and other Thumbtack customers.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Dessert • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Cold beverages (alcoholic) • Mexican / Latin American • Nut allergies • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

James and Marc provided an amazing dinner for my mom’s surprise 70th birthday gathering. James was so easy to plan with - he responsive and adaptable to our various dietary needs, and easy to communicate with day-of. He and Marc were efficient and such pleasant hosts in our own home. Most importantly, the food was outstanding. Highly recommend!

We hired James for our Mom’s 60th Birthday. First of all the food was delicious, everything we ate we were sooooooooo happy with. The food was fresh and flavorful. James and his asssistant not only cooked and served us but also cleaned up the entire kitchen stove and vaccumed. This was worth it all. Food was 10\10 and service was great. We are planning to use them again. You have to book him!!!
