  • Amazing food and an even more amazing experience. Chef Dennis is very personable and engaging, which really added to the dinner. He was flexible with us when dinner ran and did the little things to make everybody happy. I highly recommend!

  • Chef Dennis was very punctual. Came prepared with everything needed for the night to make it happen. Amazing personality and easy to get along with. He worked with to tweak the menu to my liking. Most importantly his food was exquisite. First off his ingredients were amazing. Second, his presentation was beautiful (5 star restaurant good). Third, the flavors were extremely explosive in a good way. Finally overall he was an genuinely a good person. Well mannered especially with table service explaining every meal he brought out. I would definitely book him for another event.

  • We had a blast with Chef Dennis for a holiday dinner for 8. Chef Dennis and his assistant Sophia arrived early to prep and made our experience easy and fun! The food was delicious and our guests really appreciated the pre dinner bites Chef Dennis made for us. He also was so kind to answer my 8 year old daughter’s questions even though she wasn’t a part of our dinner. I would hire Chef Dennis again!

  • Do not hesitate to book Chef Dennis. He is an absolute dream to work with.

    We had Chef Dennis cook for us on our wedding turned elopement day. Chef was extremely easy to communicate with and schedule even for this Type A bride. He was professional, punctual, and transparent throughout the process. The menu was to die for, every bite left us wanting more and eager for the next course. Get the short ribs, don't think about it just do it. Just do it. Chef Dennis was also helpful in recommending the perfect wine pairing for each course.

    Chatty and personable, but not intrusive on our dinner. All around A+ job. When Chef left our kitchen looked untouched. I really couldn't have imagined a better experience.

  • An unforgettable evening....

    Imagine getting dressed up to go dine for your birthday, walking to your front door to leave and instead getting a knock from a Personal Chef!

    Chef Dennis arrived w Birthday wishes and some of the finest cuisine served to date. Well versed and a pallet that doesn’t forgive, I’d like to personally say Thank you to him!

    Professional, masked up and fully prepared Chef Dennis really came through for an unforgettable night!

    My partner and Chef apparently worked on the menu together in the sense that she gave him “my favorites” to work with. (My diet is loosely pescatarian) caviar, scallops, crab. He then crafted the menu, got approval, shops for items and prepares all of it by hand with original recipes; comes to the home and cooks all of it fresh in your kitchen.

    I have to disclose I can’t recall the titles of all he served us; I was brimming with Joy that this man was in my home creating unique, effervescent fine cuisine for me.

    While drinking our wine and feeling the cheers he walked up with our starter. A crab delight on a variety of organic, hand cut potato crackers placed on an Oak wood platter!
    Beautiful, fresh and perfect for the moment!

    Uniquely flavored skewered shrimp came next and it was a fabulous pop of protein! Perfectly cooked.

    Candied pecans, apples, goat cheese, fennel and micro greens to follow. My partner couldn’t get enough, she ate some of mine. He hand candied those pecans and hand crafted this dressing. At this point I was impressed. It was special. I realized I was having that experience we wish all restaurants would give us right now, but honestly so much better.

    When ready for our dinner we dined on caviar perfectly centered in a bowl w tiny edible flowers on top. He then hand poured a sauce around the sides that I will never forget! I have no idea what it was, colorful and perfectly blended. The caviar he chose to serve was impeccable! The burst and flavor melted into my mouth. I actually ate half of my partners because I’d never experienced caviar in that particular way. I highly recommend trying this uniquely flavored, gorgeous and impressive dish.

    My guests and I do not eat the same foods so, after our caviar we all had scallops or sirloin bedded on polenta. If I could insert photo w smell right now I would. My description of how this was cooked and plated aren’t going to do this justice. An ample serving of the finest quality proteins served in sauces I’ve never had before. To have this on my birthday in the safe and comfortable space of my home was brilliant!!!
    (Also, Chef had to cook different plates for different people. The shopping, prep and effort that takes is a lot.)

    After a smoke break and another glass of Pinot we sat back down to our last flavor treat!
    Desert, Vegan strawberry pastry (no egg)
    Not that easy to pull off ...something so flaky, perfectly sweetened and still keep it Vegan.

    So impressed and so much fun. We got to chat with him about his culinary experiences and match stories. Very professional, he kept focused at his pace and still okay with our birthday party vibe. An interesting and seasoned individual with travel and life experience to bring to his craft. Chef Dennis’ take on foods and bringing them together on our plate felt as if we had traveled along his path with him. You can literally taste the experience and passion he has for food in every bite!

  • Dennis made SO much delicious food, we had leftovers for days. He accommodated all of our requests and simply went above and beyond. We've never had such a delicious Thanksgiving meal, I will definitely hire him again!

  • Chef Dennis was phenomenal!!! He followed my requests exactly and prepared an unbelievably delicious birthday dinner for my husband. The skirt steak with chimichurri was a standout, but everything was delicious and the guests were all raving! 10/10 would recommend and will definitely hire again!!! Thank you Chef Dennis!

  • Chef Dennis was terrific! He reached out right after I confirmed the meal with TableatHome and we discussed what I had on hand in the kitchen and what he would be bringing for the dinner. He arrived right on time and he and his sous-chef got right to work on the food prep. Chef Dennis was very personable with me when he was prepping the food for the guests. During dinner, the guests all felt it was amazing how he seamlessly cooked, kept the guests informed on the dishes, and cleared the plates timely, all at the same time. We had some guests who kept kosher and he was very knowledgeable of the restrictions and handled it extremely well. Smiles all around, thank you Chef Dennis for the amazing night.

  • Dennis was amazing. Highly recommend him. We had him do a private birthday dinner for 10 people. He over-delivered on the food and the service. For a 3 course meal he gave us amazing bites to start with that were not expected. He stayed up late the evening before smoking some short rib for the meal. The result was amazing food (all gluten free) and very excited guests. The service was also perfect. Dennis presented his food as you'd see at a Micheline star restaurant. And at the end of the night, the kitchen was cleaner than earlier in the day.

    If you're planning a special night or even if you're just wanting to have a restaurant experience during quarenteen, safe at your home, I'd highly recommend reaching out.

  • Our meal with Dennis was fantastic. It was a cooking lesson + 5 course meal for my boyfriend’s birthday. Dennis arrived promptly and set up all of his supplies in the kitchen. He then taught us knife skills before moving on to cooking the meal. The food was all delicious! Some of the best steak and short rib we have ever had. Dennis cleaned up afterwards which was greatly appreciated. Dennis also has a warm and friendly personality and it was a lot of fun to hang out with him during the meal! We would definitely book him again.

  • WOW! What a great experience. Chef Dennis was way over and beyond amazing. His food is just out of this world delicious. There was not a single dish that we disliked. All our guest were left with their jaws wide open as they were astonished with his mouthwatering flavors. On top of all of this, Chef Dennis is a supper genuine professional person that will bend over backwards to make sure you are completely satisfied and content for your dinner serving. I asked Chef Dennis if there would be a dish he would recommend from the evening menu servings for 3 children in our group and he offered to make them special kid friendly dishes. He served the children before the adults to allow the adults to have a good time with out the kiddos interrupting.... Thats was way and beyond our expectations. His presentations of his dishes with the explanations of what we were having were staggering. The quality of food was breathtaking with some of the most exquisite flavors we have enjoyed in our times. I would give him a michelin star myself if I could. Do not hesitate to hire Chef Dennis if you are considering an amazing time. We will see you Chef Dennis again! Thank you so much!

  • Such an amazing evening. Had a group of 6 close friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. Chef Dennis was professional and we had several communications prior to the event regarding planning, menu, and he even suggested some wine pairings. They day of the event he was punctual and organized. Each course was delicious and presented beautifully. Everyone had an amazing evening! Highlights were the tomato gazpacho, short ribs, and his take on a chocolate lava cake - but every dish was delicious. The kitchen was spotless after which was an added bonus. He took care of everything from setting the table to cleaning up, leaving me free to enjoy the evening. Highly, highly recommend for any occasion. We can't wait to have him again!
