  • Chef Ebony showed up ready to cook us an amazing anniversary dinner. We started with veggie egg rolls which were made from scratch and fried to perfection. We then moved to an amazing salad with homemade dressing. Lastly, our entree was perfect: hibachi-style dish with scallops and shrimp. The seafood was cooked perfectly and everything was seasoned well. I’m thinking of when we can call Chef Ebony again!

  • Unfortunately it wasn't a very good experience. The food was salty and the dessert was worse than store bought cake. I really expected Chef quality food. To say I was disappointed, is an understatement. For the amount spent, I expected better.
    Secondly, the communication could be better.
    Additionally, if you look at my chat thread with the chef, she agreed that I pay her $450 for a 4 course but she did not serve a 4 course meal and when I asked, she just shrugged and didn't offer to try to salvage it. We had barely finished eating the "dessert" when she came for her money.
    If this is how you operate, then I don't know if I will feel confident using this service again. I prefer to pay more and work with a company that vets the service before paying the chef. In all, it was a very unsatisfactory experience.

  • Chef Ebony prepared an incredible four course meal in our house, it was a very special evening for us and her delicious food and hospitality made it all the better. She was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Chef Ebony for private events or catering in your home.

  • Ebony did an amazing job for our dinner party! Everyone raved about how delicious the meal was and they were so impressed with everything from presentation to taste. I highly recommend Ebony for your private chef needs!

  • Ebony was amazing to work with! She suggested several options for each course and was flexible as we solidified the menu. She cooked 3 courses for my family all with the limited cooking utensils I had available in my kitchen. By the time we finished eating, the kitchen looked as if it was never used because Ebony cleaned everything. Ebony was also very friendly and easy to talk with throughout the night. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an at home chef or caterer.

  • Ebony and her assistant gave a wonderful experience. I would definitely use them even outside a special occasion. The food was absolutely delicious. Flavor was on point - but wish I had the recipes. The dessert was delicious and fresh. Along time since we’ve had a tasty perfect apple cobbler. Oh wait - the appetizer was delish also. I can’t wait to call for service again and I must say I will likely use within the next 3 months. THANKS Ebony.

  • My Chef prepared 4 pies and cookies.The apple pie and cherry pie used fresh fruit, not the canned stuff. Both pies were excellent. The pumpkin pie also was excellent. The peach pie was over the top too sweet. The peach pie was no better than a frozen Mrs. Smith. Now comes the interesting part, the cookies. I asked for two kinds of cookies, Cresent cookies and Italian wedding cookies. I specifically asked for two dozen of each. The Cresent cookies were a little burnt on the bottom but overall very good. I got one dozen cookies. The second batch of cookies were not Italian wedding cookies. I don't know what they were. They had a consistency like little cakes with icing and sprinkles. I got a little over a dozen. I thought communication with the Chef was poor. I let her know several times what I wanted concerning cookies and she didn't get it right. I am being very generous giving 4 stars. She was the only Chef to respond to my request. I personally didn't like the "Table at Home" platform. My needs were a little outside the box as I didn't want a meal but I wanted someone to bake some Christmas treats.

  • Fast and easy email coordination of menu. Ebony was easy to make modifications and finalize menu a few days before the event. They arrived 15 mins early ready to go and even helped move a table for us to set up. Food was excellent and no one left hungry. A course of seared foie gras turned into an excellent crostini to start as ebony had to improvise with less foie gras. Burotta and tomato salad Was great, grilled rib eye steak was seasoned well and cooked perfectly at 3 different requests between rare and medium. Paella highlight was a bit lost on us as It was served at the same time as the steak and we were so full by the time we got to it. It may have been her best dish however and I’m hoping it reheats ok. Desert was a chocolate cake with a cherry sauce, not a single person didn’t finish it even the carb conscious ones as it was light and rich and a great way to end. They cleaned up as they went, cleared plates and exited after desert was served. The 1/2 star is really a nit, I would have preferred the paella as a separate course vs the side it turned into, to pair wines. Very likely my fault in communication, so possibly unfair. I highly recommend ebony and will use her service again.

  • Chef was punctual and professional to say the least. Me and my dinner guest enjoyed all 3 courses of her meal and we let her know it. There was more food than we could eat. Taste was so satisfying. I've ever had strawberry shortcake like her's. Everything w was tasty and I'm big on people doing the little/ easy things right and her mash potatoes were awesome. Thanks Ebony see you again soon.

  • Ebony was absolutely amazing to say the least. She was on time and came very much prepared! The food.... omg, the food was definitely made with love. We enjoyed everything. Ebony was very sweet and we also loved her personality. It couldn’t have been more perfect for a surprise romantic dinner! I will only use her for any thing I have in the future.

  • A great evening with a great chef. I had planned a late Valentine's Day surprise Spanish themed dinner with my wife. Chef Ebony arrived early, was prepared, and conducted the perfect level of engagement before, during, and after dinner. The dinner was expertly prepared (seafood paella was delicious) and the amount was appropriate for the two of us. Overall, the night was terrific and we will definitely hire Chef Ebony again for more events and parties.

  • Ebony was extremely professional - in communication with us from day 1 to ensure that our valentines dinner went well. She made us a delicious meal and we could not be happier. Truly a pleasure to have her in our kitchen!

  • Chef Ebony’s lamb chops were excellent, but she did not supply enough food for the amount of people we had at our dinner Which led to many plating issues and several not receiving their main dish at all. The salmon was bland and the dinner was plated so unevenly that some of our guests had their food for much much longer while several others had to wait up to 20 minutes later to get their food. The cleaning job was also partial. Overall we were not satisfied with this meal.

  • Chef Ebony was AWESOME! She was extremely responsive, professional and timely. She created a beautiful and delicious brunch menu! Everything she made was fantastic-especially her salmon. Her sous chef was also a joy. She was punctual and extremely polite and friendly. I would definitely use her again!
