  • Chef Vincent is an incredible chef! He cooked a feast for our bachelor party of 20 people. Him and his Sous Chef absolutely blew us away. Not only did he cook one of the best meals all 20 of us have had in ages, he did it in style - he was cracking jokes and had us all engaged and laughing. Super entertaining and incredibly good at what he does. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • The food and the experience Chef Vincent created could not have been better. If I could give more stars I would! From the first bite of salad until I was stuffing the last bite of bourbon cheesecake in my mouth and everything in between, everything was PERFECT!! All of my guests raved about the food. We are still talking about it 3 days later. Chef Vincent was so accommodating and even had two surprise 10 year old guests help him make pizza while the adults were eating! You don’t get that type of service anywhere! He was entertaining and informative!! I will definitely be booking him again!
