What customers say

Massimo and his wife Tara were amazing. We held a party last night that set up, executed and concluded without any glitches. The aroma that was coming from the kitchen when I arrived home was amazing. That was only the beginning of what was an tastefully planned night of food, presentation and detailed description of everything we were about to eat. If I were to have to pick my favorite course I would have to say ALL of them. Each course was paired perfectly with ingredients that made each dish another wonderful experience. Massimo’s nearly 40 years of experience in high end restraunts shows in everything he does. Massimo and Tara are very friendly and made cooking another entertaining event for me and my guests to watch. If you are planning an event or special celebration, I would highly Recommend Massimo !!read more

I used Table at Home to surprise my husband for a romantic dinner for his birthday. Our Chef, Antonio, was absolutely wonderful and prepared us a fantastic meal that left us on cloud 9 the following day. He was easy to contact and incredibly flexible to our taste buds and budget. Table at Home made everything from creating a meal, reviewing proposals, booking, and payment completely seamless. I highly recommend this service to anyone looking to cater a private and classy meal in the comfort of their own home. Can't wait to use them again!read more

We were very pleased with our experience with Table at Home. Chef Jaycee did an amazing job re-creating the first meal my husband and I had 10 years ago. He listened and paid particular attention to details to make this meal truly special. We appreciate Chef Jaycee’s professionalism, kindness, and expertise. The meal was absolutely delicious!

I had an amazing experience with Table at Home across the board. Easy to book on their website and a. very friendly and talented chef who came to our home and cooked us an incredible meal. She even changed her Italian desert menu to accommodate our simple American taste for chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Can’t recommend enough.read more

I used Table at Home for a private dinner for 2 to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. Because of her dietary restrictions I was concerned about finding a chef that would be able to accommodate yet make a great meal. Enter Chef James. He was AMAZING! He not only revised his menu to fit her needs, but also took the time to research the FODMAP diet she had been put on. Once the menu was set, Chef James reached out to me with a few questions about my kitchen. We confirmed the time and he showed up promptly. My wife was completely surprised and Chef James prepared an impeccable 3 course meal. He set the table before we ate and made sure our wine glasses were never empty. Chef James' attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We were absolutely satisfied with our service. Thanks Table at Home and of course Chef James!read more

We had an exquisite evening with Chef Michelle in our home Saturday night. From her signature appetizers, to her mouth watering 4-course meal, we enjoyed every minute!

I used Table at Home to plan a surprise birthday dinner for my wife and some of our closest friends. I was very happy with the process from beginning to end. The website is easy to use; providing details about the meal to allow chefs to submit proposals and communicate with them regarding any questions was great. The chefs all seemed professional and the one we ultimately selected was spectacular... it was probably one of the best meals that I've had in a long while.read more

"Fantastic! What a delight of an evening with the amiable and elegant Chef Rami delivering up an exotic, thought-out, impossibly delicious (and perfectly presented) dinner. We will, for sure, ask him to chef for us again!"

The meal prepared by Chef Jacqueline was excellent. The kitchen in our vacation rental wasn't the best, actually for a house that size it was horrible. However, despite that set back Chef Jacqueline pulled off an amazing meal. The menu was diverse enough to entertain sophisticated foodies yet tame enough that even the most timid eater enjoyed the meal. She cooked for 13 men and not a single one of us left the dinner table hungry, we were stuffed! It was just a great experience! Thank you Chef Jacqueline and Table at Home for making that dinner possible and easy to put together.Nathanread more

Very convenient. Posted a meal request on Friday, did a search for local chefs, invited some to post a meal, then waited. By the next Tuesday, I had enough responses to make a choice. The chef prepared a great meal for 4 adults and 4 kids, and everyone really enjoyed the experience. If you are looking for a personal chef service, I really thing this one works.read more

This service is remarkable and I can’t recommend it more highly. Not only was Daniel, who runs the company, helpful, informative and accessible, Chef Blaire was nothing short of OUTSTANDING! She was immediately available to discuss and customize her mouth-watering menu, made intuitive suggestions based on my needs, and impressed my husband and I with her vast knowledge and experience as a chef around the world. Chef Blaire’s meal for my husband’s surprise birthday party dinner in our home astounded us all. We were a large group, all of us foodies and most of us cooks in our own right, and her Mediterranean/fusion menu blew us away: beautiful platters of vibrant vegetables, delicious soup, fish, braised short rib, chicken, 3 different desserts to die for- we were beyond sated when the evening was over. As a surprising addition, Chef Blaire is remarkably knowledgable about wines and wine pairing. Truly, we wouldn’t change a single thing from this evening!read more

"Chef Massimo and his wife Tara went above and beyond! This was my first time using table at home and my first time hiring a chef for an event and it went perfectly.

On the day of the event Chef Kisha ensured to communicate updates regularly. She arrived with everything she needed to prepare what turned out to be one of the best meals I have ever experienced. She plated the meals very well and the presentations were excellent."
