Aj is the best.... He arrived 15 minutes early which is always a plus and was very respectful and professional. He brought all of his own supplies and everything looked very clean and elegant. He set the table, lit the candles and prepared an excellent meal.He brought an excellent wine that complimented the meal and was delicious. All of the food was fresh and everything was hot and steaming when it got to the table. Even when he was leaving he did it in a swift fashion and was out in less than 5 mins. You wouldn't have even known that someone had cooked a four course meal. The whole time he was there he was on our time and never seemed to be in a rush to leave, he catered to our every need. I would definatly use A.J. again and if your looking for a private chef for the evening I would highly reccommend him for any event that you may have.

Chef Roy is low key and easy going. No drama. No hassle. He responded to my brief (a birthday dinner for 40-50 people doing Mexican food) specifically and didn't just send me some preprepared materials on what was on offer like some of the other chefs responding to the request. He came by the venue in advance to site check, then showed up on time and prepared. The food was just as ordered and delicious.

I had a themed event and Mason's Creative Catering (MCC) exceeded my expectations on food, creativity, and service. Kevin Mason is one of the most respectable chefs who takes into account the budget he is given to ensure that he, not only stays well within the budget, but also by creating such high quality, and tasty courses. It was my first experience with this company and I will definitely highly recommend to try MCC for your next event. ~Mia D. Taylor

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.

Chef Lionel and his server did an outstanding job as a private chef for my wife birthday dinner. We normally entertain with one of us doing the cooking and this time we wanted to enjoy time with our guest so we hired a personal Chef. I was prepared for him to have prepped all the food in his own kitchen and just reheat for us, but was pleasantly surprised when he did all the work from scratch right in front of us using local ingredients. He is very personable and professional and we and our guest love the show, the conversation about the local food and the meal was 5 Star restaurant quality. They served, bus and left the kitchen spot less after it was all over. If you have never done anything like this, I would highly recommend you do and also use Chef Lionel. The price would have been about the same as taking all our guest to a very nice restaurant.

Our company (TRAVELERS) had a Christmas Party for 60 people. We contacted Chef Keif, one week before the dinner/party was to take place. He provided samples of his cooking, we were impressed. The day of the dinner Chef Kief provided the food for the menu we selected. It was OUTSTANDING!! The folks raved about the food and the party/dinner was a success. Thank Chef Kief, you are amazing and our company will be using you again!!!

Brandon Ortega is an up and coming chef who provides delectable food and flawless service. I must admit,I was reluctant to use a caterer who I had no experience with, but he nailed all aspects. My guests who are worldly with high expectations were very impressed. His staff of Tiffany, Brittany, Aubrey and Nicole served with professionalism. Well done Brandon!

Sallie is a wealth of ideas and really has the customer in mind. I was purchasing a gift certificate for a personal chef to add to a gourmet basket. She was fantastic to work with, and understood my goals immediately! I am extremely confident that the winning bidder of the basket will be thrilled to have Chef Sallie cook for them!

Chef Hines is the best up and coming chef I know!! And I know plenty. Who can make chicken breast stay moist when feeding over 200 people? Chef Hines! Any even I have will most surely feature this creative culinary artist!

Chef Mark was very impressive this Thanksgiving. He was very professional and his expertise in the culinary world came out it all of the food. Chef Mark catered my holiday dinner and it was amazing. The menu was well within my budget and the food was amazing. Everything was prepared from scratch and he didn't mind the company in the kitchen as family and friends watched him prepare multiple dishes. The menu included turkey, ham, roast, mac & cheese, homemade stuffing, greens, sweet potatoes and more. Thanks again Chef Mark and you will here from us again!

If you are searching for a reliable caterer with a A+ Food, this will be by far your best choice. Hired Qmami Grill for our event. Jonathan was supporting us for setting up the whole event including tables etc. Thanks a lot. These guy´s, who was working as chefs oversea as well, really know what they are doing and you can taste the devotion for their work. The food was just amazing, our guest were impressed about the food quality and we will offer that high quality of catering on our next event again with Qmami Grill.

Kia is simply amazing! The first cake she made for me was for my Tiffany & Co. inspired baby shower. The cake was a baby bump and I also had cupcakes. Everything was delicious and moist. Everyone from the shower enjoyed the desserts and had seconds! Kia also made my wedding cake. I had three flavors (strawberry, lemon and red velvet) with cream cheese filling. All I could say is OMG!!! It was ssssooo good. Kia is so sweet and very detail-oriented. She pays attention to what you want and gives great feedback. I walk away from our meetings with no worries because I know she'll do a beautiful job. I recommend Kia to anyone that needs a beautiful and delicious dessert for any occasion.

Chef T and Raven were wonderful. They worked closely with us on the menus. They brought samples for us to try and adjusted the menu to our liking. They were exceptionally organized when they arrived and provided everything required for the party (down to bringing their own dish soap so as not to use mine). They cleaned up as they went along and left my home in perfect condition. The food was delicious and a fun time was had by all.

    I had a fantastic experience and an inventive and creative meal created by Chef Josue. The creativity of the food, the ambiance of the setting, and the quality of the ingredients made it a memorable night. A meal of this quality at a restaurant would have cost much more, but to have it with new friends in a home setting was that much more meaningful and something I definitely want to try and recommend to friends and family. Bravo!

    A lot of the food that I transfer from fork to mouth is not very impressive but this Chef dazzles me. Every dish created by her vanishes on your tongue leaving behind just a memory of transient happiness. Every ingredient used intertwines in creating the perfect symphony. For every occasion, whether intimate or a crowd, that "something" different is Chrispea's.

    Our family is trying to eat healthy; and this type of service helps keep us on track. It's better than My Fit Food because it's more variety on the food options. Plus, it's the convenience of having a personal chef prepare the food in your home.
