AJ is a great personal chef! He's really taken to time to understand my tastes in food and has tailored the dishes to satisfy my palate. All of his meals are very healthy and fresh. He's made the best salmon that I've ever had, the greens and vegetable are fantastic, and the deserts are incredible. I always look forward to trying AJ's new dishes.

We have used Kevin twice, once for a formal sit down birthday dinner for ten and for a party for 30 people. We were very pleased with both events and will definitely hire Kevin again. Both events were in our home. It was so nice to have an occasion and leave everything to Kevin. He was on time and brought everything that was needed. He did everything from unloading and setting up to clean up afterward. He wouldn't even let us help him unload his car. The only thing we provided was our dinnerware, plates, crystal, and flatware, but that was our choice. He does provide those things, if you prefer. Kevin's food for both occasions was excellent. Everyone loved the food and some guests asked for Kevin's contact information. It is also so much fun watching Kevin cook! Kevin is very versatile in food that he is able to prepare and very flexible in planning a menu. He really works with you to come up with a menu of which you are totally satisfied. He is flexible throughout the evening and does not mind you being in and around where he is cooking. At both events, people were gathered about the island watching him and asking questions. Kevin cleans up everything before he goes and leaves any leftover food. He is very professional. What more could you ask for? We highly recommend Kevin as a personal chef for your event.

Truly outstanding! Exceeded our high expectations. Mark is a credit to chefs everywhere. The special birthday dinner for my wife, family and friends was fantastic (the oo's and ah's from our guests at every course was telling). He tailored it perfectly to our request. The cost was also spot on to our stated budget. How he managed to do all of that was a marvel. A real pleasure listening to him explain as he cooked; encyclopedic knowledge of foods and cooking. His lovely assistant/wife, Louise, was just as special and kind in her service to all of us. I could not give a higher recommendation. These two are a rare find.

I cant say enough good things about Kiefs Catering. He was on time and very diligent. Very positive when I spoke with him over the phone. Event was for a 30 year high school reunion with over 100 guests. Chef Kief made his job look easywhich in turn made me look good. Thank you, Chris E.

Look no more...Mimi's Catering Services has it all! My husband and I were priviliged to have chosen Mimi's Catering Services as our vendor. Not only did she provide an excellent service, she and her staff went above and beyond on our most special day. Her service was prompt, and every single one of our guests complimented her delicious food. Her staff was also on point and all made sure that all of our guests were more than satisfied. We strongly recommend her affordable yet comprehensive services to anyone who is looking for a professional, reliable, credible, and delicious service.

46th Wedding Anniversary Dinner----Daniel, as a professional chef, used the finest foods to create a specialty menu and presentation that was stylish and elegant and what I desired for my guests. Each course of the meal had its own presentation by the Chef and his staff making for an enjoyable evening of visiting and eating. My guests ranged from the original beef connoisseur (Texas Ranchers) to computer company executives. The meal including beef (and fish for our vegetarians) was perfect! Everyone raved! Daniel worked with us to plan a menu and then prepared it beyond what we were expecting. For this event we had Heirloom set up the tables and decorate them and provide everything needed because this was our important day and we left the details to Heirloom. The atmosphere, fine food, and interaction with the chef and his staff was so much more enjoyable in our home than in a restaurant that we have had Heirloom back for a most enjoyable Christmas event. Some of our guests are now using Heirloom as well. Our guests were very much impressed with the exceptional food preparation and presentation. They are looking forward to this year’s Christmas event with Heirloom.

My experience with Chef D was excellent. Our guests had Philly cheesesteak rolls, lobster mac and cheese, whipped potatoes, sautéed asapargus, steak and salmon. Everything was great. We had plenty of food left over. He was very helpful with planning my birthday dinner and he also allowed me and a guest to sample the food prior to booking. Chef D is very professional, easy to work with and very much worth every dollar....... Thanks Chef me and my friends will definitely use your services again!!

Met with Chef Joy yesterday for a Fajita tasting for our upcoming wedding in a few months! She was very professional, very polite, very kind and above all....had AMAZING food! My (soon to be) husband is a VERY picky eater. Especially when it comes to rice and meat and he had zero complaints on either. We booked that day and look forward to working with Chef Joy at Laniers Catering for our wedding in a few months!

Kelly is an amazing chef and very accommodating and dependable. Her passion for cuisine is evident in each meal. We used Kelly’s services for about 6 months on a weekly basis. She is kind, courteous and above all a talented chef! My husband and myself were on a very strict diet and her meal prep and delivery made it easy to follow and tasty! Kelly will be filling a hefty dessert order at our corporate Christmas party this December. If you’re looking for a talented chef that really cares about her craft and clientele...the search is over!

Mark was amazing! I have never hired a personal chef before so I was kind of nervous & had no clue what I wanted. He started out with a questionaire to better understand all my wants. Next we booked a taste test & fell in love not only with the food but also his professionalism & energy! Needless to say we booked him for our anniversary dinner! Night of he showed up early to set up & was prepared beyond a doubt. The food was sooooo delicious! I crave those cheese steak egg rolls still! We will book Mark for all of our special occasions & recommend him to everyone! Thank you Mark!

Chef Labome did a great job for our corporate event. The only feedback that I received that was not positive was that the food was not warm. This may have been due to a timing issue in which a traffic jam caused a slight delay in arrival time. Overall highly recommended for quality and price.
