Austen provided an excellent private chef experience for our dinner party of 12. He was communicative, professional, and also fun. He made excellent recommendations for our group. We would highly recommend and use him again.

Austen did an amazing job from start to finish. He communicated extremely well following up even when I forgot to. He was on time and resourceful. He got to our house, set up and didn’t ask for a thing which allowed me to socialize with friends and not worry about anything. His food was SO good. We would hire him again in a second!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • Italian • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Let me start by saying that Austin was just phenomenal! His cooking skills are amazing! He arrived on time and ready to get to work. He was super respectful and professional the entire time and our family had no complaints whatsoever. He cleaned up as he went along, something I'm not very good at 🤣, and left the kitchen cleaner than what it was when he got there. I would recommend Austin over anybody, you will not be disappointed!

Austen was so wonderful. When I started the search for a chef to celebrate my husband’s 50 th birthday, Austen responded within minutes. I had viewed his Facebook postings and felt very comfortable having him in our home. He was flexible and kept me up to date on everything he was doing. He did the grocery shopping and sent me a menu for the evening. He was extremely polite. He took off his shoes in our new home. He was extremely respectful of our house. He made THE MOST AMAZING steak and cooked it to our individual liking! He cleaned up after dinner. It was honestly the perfect end to a very special day. I can’t wait to have him again for our next special event!

Had an amazing evening with MealSitters. They were super receptive to dietary restrictions and developed a great menu. They did all the shopping, came to my house, cooked, served, and cleaned up at the end of the night. Can't go wrong.
