Leslianne went above and beyond to deliver delicious food to a friend of mine. Lovely soups, canned so that my friend could eat them as she needed them. The perfect gift. The experience was great! I would highly recommend Leslieann for any personal chef engagement!

I dont ususlly do this but hey, i feel compelled to share my experiece. So, it was 2 days before Valentine's day and I had no clue as to what to do for my wife. So I decided to hire a personal chef. Nate was very accommodating and very easy to deal with. We spoke via text message and came up with a menu that I knew my wife and kids would be comfortable with. Nate and his assistant showed up at the time they said they would and got to work right away. Everything was EXCELLENT!!! I will definitely be calling Nate again for future events. I also made sure I got some business cards to share the experience with my friends and family. Thank you guys for your professionalism. See you again soon

We had an amazing experience working with Chef Stef! We did appetizers for a small party and everything was perfect. The food was outstanding! And the team was so professional when setting up. Chef Stef was so easy to work with— I picked some appetizers from a set menu and then requested some others, and Chef was so accommodating and flexible. The price was also incredibly reasonable— especially for the quality! I highly recommend using Chef Stef and can’t wait to have him cater our next event. Thank you, Chef Stef!!!!!!

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

Gerry provided personal chef services for my family and friends who were staying at my home for a week; he provided breakfast and dinner for 10-12 people. I was really impressed from the beginning for his level of professionalism, punctuality, and the high quality of the meals he provided for us.You can tell he really loves what he does. Everyone was delighted and I am sure we will be asking him to help us again in the very near future. I highly recommend him.

Chef Daniel delivered a great experience for a bunch of us friends away for a special weekend. He was able to make anything we wished for and had some great menu suggestions as well. He made a BBQ brisket so succulent and savory, along with an array of other dishes. It was an awesome meal. Chef came prepared, set things up nicely, and cleaned up after we were done. He was a pleasure to work with and we'd recommend him to anyone looking for a personal chef.

Mike was awesome. We had a four person interactive cooking lesson in the city and Mike made it tremendously fun. Mike put together a seven course menu that was absolutely delicious. Mike and his wife were awesome chefs and teachers. They made us have an outstanding evening. I look forward to having Mike teach us more in the future.

Maureen is a talented, creative chef. I have had the pleasure of eating her dishes many times. What amazes me most about her, is her ability to throw together a superb meal when it's an impromptu visit and she hasn't had a chance to buy ingredients or prep. Everything always tastes and looks incredible!!!

I could not speak highly enough of the experience we had at 251 Lex. The chef/staff were so accommodating and professional. They thoughtfully tailored the menu to what we were looking for and made sure we enjoyed ourselves while learning how to cook the delicious dishes we chose.

    Jake is incredible!!! He catered at our house for an engagement party we hosted and it couldn't have been more beautiful and amazing! All of the guests commented on the food and how great it was and looked! I also had him come over to cook for some girlfriends who were in town and the food was absolutely exquisite! It was so nice to just sit back and feel like we were in a restaurant in our very own home! Highly recommended Jake for any event or occasion you may have where you want the best in food and presentation!!

    My family and I had Eloquent Eats cater my Bridal Shower, which was a small event of about 60 people. We allowed Chef Briana to lay out business cards and all were gone by the end of the event. The food was superb. Chef Briana is very reliable and very easy to work with. She was willing to work within our budget and make any necessary dietary accommodations that my family and I may have needed up until the very last minute. To this very day, my family still talks about the delicious food they had at my shower
