"What a meal to remember! Chef Emilie created a beautiful and truly delicious experience to help me honor treasured friends. Their talents brought out the natural sweetness of each of their carefully chosen ingredients, and I loved how vegetable forward each of these dishes were. Seemingly simple yet thoughtful combinations created a pleasing harmony of tastes with each bite. I am amazed at how they came up with such a perfect menu combining many of our "favorite foods" in a way that worked both seasonally and seemlessly as a whole. The photos in my yellowed dining room don't do the beauty of the dishes justice below, but they give you an idea. I didn't even get a chance to photograph the Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Garlic or Winter Squash and Lime Soup with Roasted Garlic Creme - so rich and smooth that it left us all purring for more. The Risotto with Saffron, Meyer Lemon, Wild Mushrooms & Arugula had to be one of our favorites of the evening. The flavors were so bright, layered, earthy - yum! I had to prod them a bit, but I personally loved hearing some of their stories of where the recipes came from - many from their studies in kitchens across Europe. And if only I could have captured the smells that came from my kitchen during the day! My house couldn't have been happier. Chef Emilie is an artist with their creations. They were very clear and communicative prior to the event, so that I knew just what to expect. I felt so comfortable with them in my kitchen, they worked with efficiency and ease, and I was thrilled with how clean everything was afterwards. It looked better in there than when they had arrived. And they left my friends and I with some of the best tastes on our tongues we've ever had, Thank You Chef Emilie for making us all feel special. I highly, happily, heartily recommend Chef Emilie for a fine dining experience made cozier by having it at home."

"The experience we all had with Bobby Greene was amazing from beginning to end. Throughout the entire process, he was very kind, accommodating, and, from what I hear, his food was divine. I would highly recommend him for any event. Frankly, if there were more stars, I would add them. But five will have to do. For my parents’ anniversary, I wanted to do something special. I ended up looking into private chefs and decided to put in a request to see what it would take to get this done. This option appealed to me as there is only one nice restaurant where my parents live and they go there every event. I wanted this to be something special for their 30th. Bobby Greene responded to my event request within hours with a bid and a very nice response on how he wanted to be a part of making their anniversary special. From that point forward, he personally helped me along the process and accommodated anything and everything I requested. I had never done anything like this before and had a lot of questions, all of which he answered readily. My mother was a bit picky when it came to the food, but he accommodated every request I had when putting the menu together. He was always very gracious and kind throughout the entire thing – even when I thought I was being too pushy. He always made me feel welcome to ask questions and to make requests. I wasn’t actually there for the experience, but I requested that my mother write a little excerpt about it so I could include in this review: Our youngest daughter surprised us with Bobby – a private chef – for our 30th anniversary. We found out when he showed up (we had the pre-warning of cleaning the house and wearing something nice). I felt very uncomfortable with the idea as we have an older home – small kitchen and no dishwasher. But what was at first self-consciousness quickly gave way to Bobby’s easygoing attitude. He made us feel at ease immediately with his warm, inviting personality. He let us set the ambiance. He could have stayed in the background for the romantic evening or be a part of it. He was so engaging though that we invited him into our evening. As he served each course, he explained what we were eating and how it was prepared. My husband and I met working in a restaurant 31 years prior so we were fascinated by the process. The food was delicious and I have to admit – there were no leftovers! Though he is not a baker, he even made my favorite dessert – a pineapple upside down cake and it was superb. My husband and I highlight recommend Bobby for any special occasion. He is truly talented; the food is prepared to perfection; and, he is very personable and engaging. We will always remember our 30th with great affection."
