Reviews for Plano personal chefs
Thumbtack Customer
I found Chef Gary here on Thumbtack. We were looking to host a small dinner party - 12 people total - for my Wife's birthday and our anniversary. Chef Gary was very professional. I met him for coffee to discuss the menu and finalize the price. He then took time to come to our house a couple weeks in advance to look at the Kitchen and determine what we had and what he needed. On the day of the event he and his assistant arrived on time and were very professional. Now for the best part - the food was FANTASTIC. Our guests LOVED all three courses. We had a salad which was very tasty. The main course was surf and turf with a crab cake and beef tenderloin along with sweet potatoes and sautéed spinach. The desert is not something I would normally order but it was EXCELLENT. A poached Pear with whipped cream. SUPER SWEET AND DELICIOUS. The presentation was impeccable and every one of our guests either asked for information on Chef Gary or told us to make sure to keep his card available in the event they need a personal Chef. The kitchen was left in the same condition as Chef Gary found it, neat and clean. I WILL be hiring Chef Gary again, hopefully sooner rather than later. Michael W. Zientz
