Absolutely FANTASTIC. This business is everything you could imagine and more. Within 5 minutes of posting we had three responses with diverse menus that fit the cuisine we were looking for. We went with Chef Vera (the BEST) and never looked back. She sourced the freshest ingredients - shrimp, veal, vegetables - and everything was cooked to perfection. Aside from the food, Chef Vera was a genuine delight to have in our home. She was the sweetest person and so great to our kids. We will 100% be using this service again.

We found a chef via TableAtHome to cater for a bachelorette dinner at an Airbnb we were staying at. The service and food was amazing! This platform allowed me to review several proposals to choose the chef that was right for us. I will use this platform if we ever need again!

Chef Franco was amazing!! He arrived on time and had a great personality! The best part was all the delicious food he made us. Chef Franco’s food was stylish, elegant, and tasty! I will be recommending to friends and family.
I used TAH for a private dinner at my home. Within minutes I received proposals from many Chefs. I went with Chef Tiya who resonated with me the most. She was amazing, professional, timely, and our 4 course meal was delicious. I recommend this service.

Very easy to use and able to utilize the reviews and resumes to get the chef you want. Massimo was warm and friendly and easy to work with. His was food was delicious, simple and fresh. It was authentic Italian and my teenage son, who is a picky eater, cleaned his plate.

Chef Nick made my husbands 40th birthday AMAZING. Initially I chose a different chef website that I would never use again. Take a chef was easy, reliable and cut and dry. From the first time speaking to chef Nick he was a true gentleman and an absolute pleasure to work with. He made an elote tostada for appetizer that was BY FAR the best we’ve ever had. Carnitas tacos for dinner with the freshest ingredients and the flavors were unreal. For dessert he made a lemon tart with confit cherries. Can’t wait for Chef Nick to come again. Incredible experience!

What an amazing experience! It was delicious, intimate, educational, and so much fun. It was fine dining in my home with great friends. Chef Brenda is a fabulous chef, I highly recommend her, I know I will have her back. It really felt like she was part of the family. The best part is she helped me in a pinch. I kept my fingers crossed I would get a response the night before my event. I found Table At Home, gave it a shot, and received two responses. Knocked it out of the park! Thank you Table At Home and with gratitude Chef Brenda!

We used Table at Home to find a local chef for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary dinner. Table at Home made it so easy to connect with chefs offering a wide variety of cuisines. We worked with Chef Vincent and we cannot say enough great things about him and his food! He accommodated the entire family- even bringing supplies for the younger kids to make pizzas while the adults ate dinner! Delicious food, great stories, and extremely talented and professional. If you’re in the Austin area we HIGHLY recommend him! He made our night one to remember!

We could not have asked for things to go more smoothly. We requested a celebratory family dinner for 12 adults and 4 children (ranging in age from 2 to 14). In a few days, Chef Matt came back with a proposal that fit the bill perfectly. We touched base via phone a couple of days prior to the event to fine tune things.Chef Matt arrived an hour and a half prior to our guests to get his dishes started….and EVERYTHING was delicious! From the unique cocktail, yummy hot appetizers, three course dinner to dessert, all dishes were layered with flavor and presented beautifully. Matt made kid friendly items for the littles and also provided a tasting plate so they could sample some of the grownup dishes. The flow of the evening was perfect, allowing us to really relax, enjoy the flavors and each other’s company.All we provided was the flatware and glasses, as well as our own wine and champagne. Chef Matt brought everything else. In addition to cooking the food, he served us at the table, and left the kitchen spotless. It was an amazing evening that we will never forget. Thanks, Chef Matt!

I placed a request on tableathome.com to plan a dinner for my 30th birthday, and Kamal Rose responded within the hour. Once I had outlined my preferences, Kamal immediately sent back a customized menu which looked amazing. Throughout the week he was very responsive with any questions I had and had plenty of suggestions, I could tell that he was a professional just from my conversations with him. When it came to the event, he arrived exactly on time, was very well-prepared and was incredibly professional. I could tell that this was second nature to him and he truly knew his way around the kitchen. We ate right on time and he served us one of the best meals I had ever had. The food was hot, fresh and absolutely delicious. I cannot think of one thing that I would change or anything negative at all. He cleaned while he cooked and also made sure the kitchen was clean before he left. This experience was even better than I had expected and we will absolutely be doing this again. I HIGHLY recommend Chef Kamal Rose and cannot wait for him to come back and cook for us again!

Seriously, how did I not know about this??? This has changed my life. We had a dinner party for four and rather than cook or order take out, I tried Table at Home. The food was to die for with the best chocolate cake I’ve ever had. The convenience and the flexibility of the chef made it so easy. Highly recommend!!

Highly recommend Table at Home! I came across the site on Google and decided to give it a try. The user experience was super easy and within minutes of submitting my request I received a proposal from a private chef for my event. Within the next hour I got two more. The platform was super easy to use and it connected me with a wonderful private chef who planned the most perfect birthday brunch for our girls weekend getaway in Palm Springs.

Chef Mai was simply amazing! From booking until the dining experience, words cannot express how amazing this was! My husband absolutely enjoyed every part of the dining experience, but even more-so, my 13 & 12 y/o kids tried and ate everything Chef Mai brought to the table. Her interactions with us from start to finish were very personable and we definitely plan on booking more occasions to celebrate with Chef Mai’s dining experience to accompany them!! Thanks, Chef Mai!

It is free to place a request, and there is no commitment if you do not find a chef you like

The best private chefs

We only accept great Private Chefs on our platform. All Chefs have passed through our review, screening and interview process before being invited to join the platform.

In addition to being great cooks, private chefs have also been chosen for their interpersonal skills - a very important ingredient in making your dinner a success!

Meet some of the private chefs below

Where we serve

  • Now also in Austin, Boston, Houston and Nashville

For each city / metro area, our service area extends in a roughly 30 mile radius from the city center.

Please try your zip code on our Request a meal page to see if we have chefs who service your home.

About us

We want to make it easy to hire a great independent private chef for your next dinner party or small event

Our idea started with a belief that great experiences happen over food, and that few things are more authentic than a meal cooked in your own home.

This got us wondering:

How can those of us who are a little short on time experience a meal at home that is a little more authentic than a meal kit or delivery?

And, where can chefs practice their passion if they don’t want to work the traditional 6 days a week in a restaurant or give up their day jobs?

Our solution is Table at Home. We have made it simple to organize a great private chef to cook for you in your home. Posting a request only takes minutes, and we have taken the guesswork out of choosing a private chef with customer reviews and photos of chefs’ creations.

While our specialty is Private Chef Dinner Parties, you can also use Table at Home to hire a Private Chef for Private Cooking lessons, Vacation home catering, Special celebrations and any time that you need an amazing food experience in your home.

We launched at the start of 2018 with a roster of amazing private chefs serving Washington D.C. and the broader DMV area. Since then, we have expanded the service to a roster of Private Chefs in New York (including Private Chefs who service The Hamptons, Jersey City and Greenwich) and a group of top Private Chefs in Chicago. In late 2018 we moved west, starting our service with Private Chefs in Los Angeles (where we have private chefs who service everywhere from Malibu to Hollywood and south to Orange County) and San Diego (where we have Private Chefs for dinner parties and Airbnb vacation home rental catering).

We are independently owned and run by passionate foodies, and pride ourselves on providing a fair platform for both Chefs and their Customers.

Want to join us as a Chef?

We believe we are the best and fairest gig platform for quality independent chefs
