Private Chef your next dinner party

Our Private Chefs love doing Dinner Parties

Dinner parties are at the core of what Table at Home does. We think that there is nothing more authentic than enjoying the good company of friends and family over a meal. And, it is all the better when someone a Private Chef is doing all the work!

We have private chefs that can tackle pretty much any dinner party cuisine. From traditional cuisines like French and Italian, to things a little more exotic like Peruvian or Caribbean. Style wise, our private chefs can serve dinner parties both banquet style and individually plated.

Just like a restaurant, our private chefs can propose dinner party menus from basic 2-3 course contemporary meals, right up to exquisite 'chefs table' tasting menus where the artful presentation of the cuisine is nearly too beautiful to eat!

Just give us an idea of what you have in mind and then let our private chefs propose the perfect dinner party experience for you. If you are feeling adventurous - tell us! And our private chefs will get creative and propose something a little different. Booking a private chef from Table at Home ensures stress free entertaining.

Chef Airon was fabulous! He was very easy to communicate with prior to our event. Chef Airon created a delicious Italian theme menu for our dear friend’s 50th birthday dinner. Not only was the food delicious, he also cleaned the kitchen after serving the 3 course dinner. Highly recommend Chef Airon.
What a terrific birthday gift for my husband. Chef Jordan was amazing and fit right in. We learned, laughed and stuffed our faces with high quality food. It was such a great experience. We are already planning our next dinner. !
Great experience booking a private baking lesson with a local chef. It was easy to submit a proposal and connect with a local chef. Will definitely use this service again in the future for private or group lessons!
Chef Tiya was absolutely amazing! She provided excellent services for our Christmas Dinner! Everyone enjoyed their meal. She was very professional, sweet and caring. We will recommend her to everyone we know!Thanks so much Chef Tiya!
Table at Home helped me find a great chef, Chef Kee. I was very pleased with that website and service.
We wanted a special dinner for our anniversary. Hired a chef from Table at Home (Iulian) who was prompt, courteous, prepared, and cooked a great meal. He cleaned up as well. It was a fabulous meal. Definitely will use Table at Home again.
Chef Sunny and his wife Jenny were wonderful! Great communication, thoughtful about our food preferences and amazing with two rambunctious kids. Excellent experience overall!
This service is amazing! We had a great evening of delicious food!
Lulian cooked a wonderful dinner for our family last night. Food was delicious, served wonderfully and made for a great evening. Looking forward to doing it again soon!
Chef Tony DiSalvo created a Michelin star experience in our home for my foodie friends. He was on time, prepared, genuine, an excellent communicator pre-event, and an exceptional chef during the party. Everyone at the party raved about his sashimi, baby artichoke salad, Wagyu beef filets, home-made gluten free pasta, celery root purée and gf chocolate torte. His magnetic and fun personality gave all of the guests looking for trade secrets an unforgettable experience. He is a gem and a gift to the culinary profession. He even cleaned up so we could focus on connecting with our guests. He was a true partner in the kitchen in every way and you would be lucky to have him help host a cooking party.
I was looking to book a fine dining level experience to celebrate my wife’s birthday. After an easy google search I found Table at Home, the user interface was so easy to navigate. I entered my dinner requirements and working 24 hours I had my first professional chef prepared menu, after 48 hours I had several more proposals. All proposed menus were clearly listed and very detailed. Each were high quality! Once I made my decisions the chef and i began to communicate via phone and text to plan the details of our dinner. It was perfect! Prices were competitively priced to any 5 star fine dining restaurant in the Washington DC area. I highly recommend chef Natalie!!
Such an awesome experience that Chef Francesco provided! All of the courses were beyond delicious and Chef Francesco was very warm and friendly. Highly recommend him!
I booked Sunny for private birthday dinner for 2 for my boyfriend 32nd birthday. He was super professional. Arrived on time. He cooked exactly what was agreed upon on the menu. The food was delicious. N my boyfriend is a foodie so he really appreciated Sunny's action to detail and the quality of the ingredients served especially the meats . He was super helpful in making my birthday surprise a success. Will book again and recommend him for others. Great job glad I found table at home.
Chef Joey was the best. He prepped and prepared a complete southern dinner. He cleaned up and boxed my left overs. My family loved all the food and desserts
I used Table at Home to provide my sister and her family with a fine dining experience. It is difficult for them to go out since they are caring for one of their disabled daughters. This experience gave them the joy of eating a restaurant type gourmet meal together as a family. Francesco was their chef and his Italian meal was excellent! They truly thought the food was amazing as well as all the conversation with Francesco. He and I spoke a few times to set the menu and details. He was so personable and had great suggestions esp since we required a vegetarian menu. I would definitely recommend Francesco again to more family and friends. I would also recommend Table at Home!
Chef Alex...you were amazing. Clean, prompt, and, most importantly, the food was delicious. Thank you! However, I wouldn't have gotten the privilege of working with Chef Alex without going through the Table at Home portal. Easy to use, with a variety of choices as it pertained to the menu. And the response time coordinated well with my plans. In the end, I did a little work with the portal, Chef Alex catered amazingly, and my wife enjoyed it. That's what matters the most. Gratitude to Table at Home.
Chef Kenneth Luk and his sous chef Emily were beyond amazing! They made my mom’s birthday celebration so special. The food was outstanding, and they were such a pleasure to work with! I could not recommend this chef and Table at home enough!
We had Chef Shawn cook for us and had an incredible experience. Absolutely unforgettable.
Chef Nicole was a pleasure to work with from the moment we connected. She creatively worked around our gluten-free request. Every dish was so tasty and well presented. She eloquently decorated our table with beautiful flowers. I would highly recommend chef Nicole.
We had Chef Shawna create a special birthday dinner for my husband. We have young children so this was a great way to celebrate while they were sleeping. The food was amazing and the kitchen cleaned. I would definitely recommend Chef Shawna!
DOPE! Chef Stacy was amazing! Worth the money. Excellent food, timely, and convenient. Highly recommend this service.
Table at Home and Chef Massimo were fantastic. They make it really essy to host a dinner party in your home. I would highly recommend.
My wife hired Chef Cashimiere to make me a birthday dinner in our home. I'd have to say that the experience was one of the best birthday presents I've ever received. And, the meal ranks as one of the best I've ever eaten, period. As well as being a great chef, Cashimiere was fun to talk with while he was cooking. He started us with a bruschetta appetizer, and then led us through salad and an amazing duck 2 ways main course. Dessert was profiteroles with custard and berries for me, and chocolate moose for my wife. My description though, doesn't even begin to describe the decadence of the meal. Each element of each course could have stood on its own as an entree. At the end of the meal I jokingly asked if he could come back next week - but we would love to have him back again soon!
Nicole C. was absolutely fantastic and everything was delicious. I booked with her for a brunch and she made things like simple breakfast potatoes taste incredible and memorable. She was very accommodating with changing the menu to our taste and very fun. We can’t wait to have her again!
I used table at home to book a private chef for my wife and I on our anniversary, and the website was very easy to use, and the process was flawless! We ended up having a great night, the food was amazing, and the chef was great at communicating with us and assisting us with planning. I thought it would be much more complicated, but it turned out to be very easy. I would definitely recommend to a friend!
Great Experience from start to finish! Highly recommend, the food was fantastic and the chef/sous chef were wonderful!
This was my 2nd time using Table at Home and it did not disappoint. Chef Atiya was truly wonderful throughout the whole process. She Was extremely professional and also very personable. Each course was excellent, my favorite was the curry crab soup! Literally everything was cooked with the perfect flavors and tenderness. Thanks Chef Atiya for making our anniversary dinner a memorable one.
Response from the owner: Thanks for the wonderful words Rasheed!
This was our first time using Table at Home but it won't be the last! It was easy to get bids for our event. The booking platform and communications were clear and eat to use. Our chef was professional and did an amazing job with our chosen menu.
Chef Shawn cooked for a family birthday party and it was delicious! He was fantastic and all of the guests could not stop talking about the food and awesome service. Table at Home was a great service that made finding a private chef a breeze and I would highly recommend using them.
We hired Chef Nicole and she was professional, talented, friendly, amazing. Best dinner. We had a night to remember forever because of her. Highly recommend.
We had the best experience with Chef Sunny who we booked through Table at Home. The booking experience was seamless, and working with Chef Sunny leading up to the night of our dinner was a true pleasure. He was incredibly thoughtful, detailed, communicative, friendly - and the food was exquisite. My husband and I can’t stop talking about it. Highly recommend!
The full turn key experience provided by Chef Ben was outstanding. From working with me on several iterations to the menu, accommodating my ask for printed menus for our guests to promptly responding to all my emails.I was very impressed with the presentation and taste of each dish he served. Our meal included appetizers, salad, 2 main courses and 2 desserts. Each better than the next dish.It was such a treat, to be out of the kitchen and enjoy the company of our guests, with the extra win-win bonus of a clean and tidy kitchen at the end of the evening!Service received was first class – and the thought and attention beforehand was amazing. Thank you again for your hard work, Chef. Your food definitely contributed greatly to the success of our party.
Sunny was great. Food was delicious and courses were timed correctly. Sunny was neat, polite and attentive.
Chef Alessandro is an amazing chef and beyond that, an interesting person that is easy to talk too. He was very communicative before the event letting us know his time of arrival and also showing us a picture preview of the lovely ravioli that he made for us earlier in the day! Upon arrival he took off and changed shoes (which was appreciated due to the wet weather outside) and changed into professional chef attire. He was extremely organized and made a 4 course dinner for two look like a breeze. He was comfortable cooking in front of us and chatted with us when engaged. He was professional and kind throughout the evening- even snapping some pictures for us. The food was wonderful! We will invite Chef Alessandro back again to share this experience with our friends!
Chef Massimo and his wife Tara were a pleasure to get to know and a delight to have in our home to celebrate our daughter’s 30th birthday! The food was excellent and plentiful! Grazie @gustochefmassimo!
Great experience with Chef Melissa!
Chef Julian was awesome. My celebration was successful. The food was perfect.
Chef Vasily was wonderful. He created a beautiful and delicious 4 course meal for 18 people that was perfect for a special birthday dinner. I at first was overwhelmed trying to figure out how to find and hire a chef for this gathering. But Table at Home made everything so easy - from requesting proposals to making decisions to setting the budget and finalizing the logistics. I will definitely use them again.
Really good service to find a private chef for an event
Had an absolutely amazing experience with Shawn our chef. Literally one of the best meals I’ve ever had and so sweet too!
Nicole did a great job! The food was amazing. Generous portions.
Tried this company for an important last-minute brunch and was COMPLETELY impressed and satisfied!! Received several great proposals within hours and worked out the final details with the chef directly. Will DEFINITELY use again. SOON!
Great way to organize a wonderful experience at your home. Easy to use. Great variety of chefs submitted requests. Our chef Nicole was amazing!

The best private chefs

We only accept the best! All our Private Chefs have been background checked, interviewed and had their work reviewed.

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

Meet some of our 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.

Our Top 5 tips for getting the best Private Chef for your next Dinner Party

1. Post your request early

The top rated private chefs on Table at Home get booked out week after week, so try put your request in at least 2 weeks in advance to have your pick on our busiest times (Friday and Saturday nights). That being said, last minute 'day before' requests can often get picked up by private chefs who decide to work last minute, so don’t hesitate to try your luck on a Monday morning for that Tuesday night dinner date you have planned.

2. Browse our photo galleries for inspiration

All private chefs are encouraged to post lots of photos of their work. Many have amazing photo portfolios that will make your mouth water. Check out the ‘food porn’ on our Inspire me page or our Instagram feed to get some new ideas on a food style or theme for your next dinner party. Often we see customers base a Meal request around a photo of a dish that caught their attention.

3. Give chefs creative freedom on the menu

Private Chefs are creatives at heart. We have found that you get the best results when you give them a fairly free rein to propose a menu. So tell them you want vegetarian or have a craving for lamb, but don’t give them your grandma’s risotto recipe. That being said, don’t be afraid to ask them to suggest another desert when you like the main they have proposed but are not a fan of the creme brulee they proposed.

4. Look at other customers reviews when choosing your chef

Who better to tell you what a private chef is really like than a fellow customer. When trying to pick between chefs, often the comments from other customers can help you work out who you want. In addition to feedback on the food, customers comments often tell you about who the personal style and atmosphere they create. For intimate affairs like small dinner parties, often this interpersonal dimension is just as important an ingredient as the food. Do you want a private chef that likes to share their secrets and interact with guests? Or someone more in the background? There is no right or wrong, it is just about choosing what is right for you.

5. Don't wait to the last minute to confirm a private chef

As you would expect, the best chefs on our platform are in high demand, and tend to book out. Once you have received 3-4 proposals from chefs, and worked out the private chef you want .... don't wait too long to 'Accept' their proposal and confirm them. Until you confirm a booking with a private chef, there is always a chance that they are snapped up by another customer.

In addition to these tips, we are always available to help you in any way. Whether its getting you some different chefs proposals or talking through the best way to run your night.
