He said it was the best meal he ever had :) Nicole was great she worked with me to customize a menu I knew he’d love, added extra food/ingredients along the way and brought some beautiful flowers to decorate.

  • Chef Nicole was amazing. She was extremely communicative, warm, and nailed the meal. From the beginning she open to ideas and came up with a delicious menu that we were able to eat again (because of left overs) that we absolutely loved. This was my first time ever having a private chef and it was great.
    Thank you Chef Nicole!

  • I can not sing Chef Nicole’s praises enough!!! Everything about our evening was perfect. She arrived a couple hours ahead of time, fully prepared. Totally autonomous and cooked the most AMAZING 3-course meal for my husbands 35th birthday. It was our first gathering since the start of the pandemic and she made it so very special. Not only was the food incredible, but she left kitchen cleaner than it was to begin with & brought flowers! i will absolutely- without-a-doubt work with Chef Nicole again and I would highly, highly, highly recommend. Thank you chef Nicole for making our dinner party so memorable!!

  • Chef Nicole did an amazing job creating a beautiful and yummy Easter brunch for my family and I. She was helpful in creating a menu and open to cooking anything I wanted. She was very responsive to my requests and worked with my through it all. I was also very late to setting up my Easter brunch and she worked on a very short timeframe (4 days) to put the meal together. She was on time and brought beautiful flowers. The food was amazing, the whole family enjoyed every dish.
    Definitely would recommend.

  • This was our first experience w table at home and it exceeded our expectations. Chef Nicole blew us away w this special birthday meal. Her cooking was flavorful, creative and so delicious. She was incredibly responsive, communicative, and down to earth. We aren’t big eaters but she made enough amazing food to last us a few days. We so appreciated that chef Nicole was COVID safe. She was fun and engaging and couldn’t have made the evening more special. The kitchen was spotless when she left, which was the icing on the proverbial cake. Can’t wait to plan our next meal at home w Chef Nicole.

    • Worked on March 3, 2021

  • I used Table At Home in celebration of my husband’s birthday. It was the perfect touch during the Pandemic to still be able to celebrate, safely. Chef Nicole exceeded all expectations. She was on time, prepared, and welcoming... the amazing 3-course dinner was the highlight and the table decor she brought was a nice, welcomed surprise. In whole, this company is amazing. Already planning our next dinner!

    • Worked on January 3, 2021
  • Chef Nicole proved why she was a 5 star chef. Everything she made was delicious, and we have been eating leftovers all day. Not only was her food good, but she was both professional and very safe wearing a mask and cleaning her cooking space as she went and then disinfecting after she was done. I would highly reach her services and will likely book her again in the future.

    • Worked on December 3, 2020
  • Chef Nicole was great! This is the first time using Table at Home I was not sure what to expect. Nicole is very sweet and the food was delicious! She washed all the dishes and left the kitchen clean and sanitized.

    • Worked on December 5, 2020
  • Chef Nicole was a fantastic Chef. Very friendly, great energy, and her food was top notch. She was able to accommodate the menu I had requested and even made modifications to a vegetarian guest.

    Highly recommend having her cater to your next event. I'm still thinking about the poutine she made!

    • Worked on November 21, 2020
  • Detail oriented and a great conversationalist. From the incredible appetizers to the superb main dish followed by a delicious dessert, Chef Nicole "wowed" us at every turn. She was punctual, incredibly organized and left my kitchen spotless. What a fabulous experience! Thank you, Chef Nicole.
    Let's do this again!

    • Worked on December 18, 2020
  • Nicole was Fabulous Lotta good energy when she came in she discussed everything she was cooking in detail especially with the guest which I guess really loved she made everything very high end and it was more than enough food to go around I really really highly recommend her I had another party planned but I have to reschedule but I will definitely use her for all my cooking these in the future!!!

    • Worked on October 29, 2020
  • The food was excellent, Nicole was great - loved that she went the extra mile to dress the table with flowers and was patient with timings as we managed a baby who was too excited to nap! The only call out was the inconsistent mask wearing, We would have felt much comfortable if it was worn, especially as we asked upfront about it. It's important at this time, but in future where it's less of an issue all would have been perfect! Otherwise, thank you for a scrumptious feast that we are still enjoying to this day thanks to the generous leftovers.

    • Worked on November 26, 2020

She was so sweet, showed up on time, was super easy to get along with and not awkward at all to have in our home, and didn’t flinch when one of our guests was an entire hour late! The kitchen was spotless when she left and we have had leftovers for days. She also cooked food specifically to avoid my husband’s nut and shellfish allergies. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

    Highly recommended!

    • Worked on May 6, 2020
  • Nicole cooked a birthday dinner for me and my wife. The appetizers were mediterranean, for the main course we had beef bourguignon, and for desert Nicole baked a chocolate raspberry cake. Everything was delicious! The cake was the best! I’m not even sure if it was tastier when it was warm in the evening, or when it was set and cold in the morning)))
    Nicole is very friendly and a true professional. She even brought the birthday candles for the cake, which was very sweet. I would for sure recommend hiring Nicole for your family gathering 👍🏻

    • Worked on May 7, 2020

    • Worked on March 14, 2020
  • Wow wow wow!! Nicole did an amazing job creating the perfect menu for our anniversary dinner!! Her white fish ceviche was so fresh and packed with so much flavor! I probably would have been satisfied with just that alone, but her talent and food carried through the night. Her salad, main entree, and dessert were so elegantly presented and all very tasty! The best part of it all is that she gave us so much left overs!! When everything was done she left my kitchen so clean! It was nice to not have to do any dishes! Nicole was very professional and friendly... I will definitely consider booking her again! 5 stars all the way!!

    • Worked on February 15, 2020

    • Worked on December 24, 2019
  • Nicole was so awesome! She was very relaxed and low-stress whole cooking for 20 people - even when she showed up and the kitchen had no pans! The food was amazing. She made beef bourguignon for us, and it was to die for! Her chocolate ganache cake is a dream. Will definitely hire her again.

    • Worked on December 14, 2019
  • Nicole was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was easy to communicate with, punctual, polite and friendly. The dishes she prepared for my Holiday dinner were delicious and she graciously prepared a back up plan for guests who don’t eat duck! The dessert she prepared was sublime. I would highly recommend her for cooking and making in home dining stress free!

    • Worked on December 13, 2019
  • Chef Nicole was amazing. She cooked my friends and I a delicious meal, was friendly, on time and knew her way around a kitchen. I am currently eating a leftover slice of her french chocolate cake which is divine.
    What a great experience!
    Thank you Chef!

    • Worked on October 30, 2019
  • Nicole is an incredible person and chef. She was spot on and part of our dinner party. Great attitude! Par excellence.

    Can someone email me my Amex receipt

    • Worked on December 17, 2019
  • Nicole was above and beyond phenomenal. I grew up in the home of a French chef. So by default I stand to be particular. She impressed on every level even modifying the main the course and making separate matching vegan versions to accommodate two people with dietary constraints. Personality and professionalism glossed with wonderful charm. Don’t think twice! Nicole is your definitive choice!

    • Worked on November 16, 2019
  • Nicole's food was amazing. She served seven professional women who have been lucky enough to dine well in the past and we all agreed Nicole's meal was a memorable favorite. Her presentation was thoughtful, her demeanor while she cooked in an open kitchen next to our table was professional, and her interaction with our guests was delightful. I will absolutely work with her again.

    • Worked on November 1, 2019
  • Chef Nicole was awesome! Great menu ideas, showed up and delivered an amazing, tasty dinner for a big group (10 people) with minimal kitchen support (it was an airbnb, so we had very little to work with).

    Would definitely hire her again.

    • Worked on October 19, 2019
  • Chef Nicole was great! Very responsive to messages and worked with me on figuring out the perfect menu for our two-person birthday dinner. She was prompt and so nice. She made a flatbread, a roasted pear salad, two beautiful whole branzinos, and an apple tart, and everything was fantastic. She made sure we had leftovers for the next day too! Our kitchen was pristine after she finished. It was exactly what we were hoping for -- a no-stress, delicious, fun meal.

    • Worked on October 17, 2019
  • Nicole was a dream to work with! From the beginning she was so accommodating when it came to changes to the menu. She arrived on time and was lovely to have around in the kitchen. She cooked a meal for husband’s birthday that we had in our backyard. She was fine with my timing and pacing of the meal and when it was done the kitchen was spotless! Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend Nicole. Make sure to request her ceviche and her garlic and chive mashed potatoes were to die for!

    • Worked on September 21, 2019
  • This was the best meal of my life! I hired Chef Nicole to surprise my wife with an in-home private meal (after a couples massage for the two of us), and I didn’t know what I was going to get. Nicole was very accommodating when it came to menu alterations and ideas, and the meal ended up being 10 times better than I ever imagined. Mushroom and onion tart, spinach and beat salad topped with goat cheese, gluten free brown rice pasta with the softest and most amazingly marinated sea bass I’ve ever had! Garlic broccoli and asparagus on the side...it was amazing! If you want to make your life really easy, just tell her you want the “Rener Gracie Special” and she’ll make you the exact same meal, and if you’re not 100% satisfied, I’ll give you a free month of jiu-jitsu lessons at my academy in Torrance! 🙏🏼

    • Worked on August 16, 2019
  • Chef Nicole was great! She did weekly meal prep for us - everything was delicious, left the kitchen spotless after, and was a pleasure to be around. Highly recommend!

    • Worked on August 18, 2019
  • She’s excellent, professional, lively, and educated. Food was awesome. I will be using her again.

    • Worked on July 31, 2019
  • Our meal with Chef Nicole was just incredible! She prepared an amazing 4 course meal that our guests are still talking about a day later (and still picking at the leftover dessert!). She was also extremely flexible, patient and fun to have in the kitchen. We loved her so much we wanted to hold her hostage so she could make us breakfast ;)

    • Worked on August 31, 2019
  • Chef Nicole did a great job accommodating our special requests, we booked somewhat last minute along with the challenge of adding a separate menu for two vegans. She listened and adjusted the menu based on our requests and came up with something that made everyone happy. She showed up right on time and with plenty of food to prepare for us. On top of cooking a great meal, she talked us through the preparations for the food and let us watch what she was doing as well. While we were eating the main course she baked a chocolate vegan cake while she cleaned up the kitchen. Not only did we end up with a great warm cake to eat we had a clean kitchen after. There were plenty of leftovers after the meal that we could enjoy even after she had left. Overall we had a good experience with Nicole and she was very accommodating to all of our needs.

    • Worked on June 8, 2019
  • Chef Nicole was absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend her - she came over while I was out on a sunset sail for my bfs birthday and prepared the best surprise birthday dinner ever! She came over and worked her magic in the kitchen while we were out and we came home to an incredibly delicious meal! My bf was so surprised and loved everything she cooked. Her ceviche is incredible!!! She is so sweet and even set a beautiful ambiance - I asked her to light some candles and spread out rose petals and she did such a beautiful job. Her attention to detail was right on point and it was the perfect way to spend a romantic evening! I will definitely use her again - she is the best!!

    • Worked on May 30, 2019
  • Nicole was great to work with. She tailored the menu based on our requests, and arrived early so that she was able to have everything ready for us at the exact time we wanted to eat. She even ended up using the extra ingredients she had purchased to prepare other food that wasn’t on the menu. The food was excellent, and everyone really enjoyed the experience Nicole provided us.

    • Worked on April 13, 2019
