What customers say

We had such an incredible experience with Table at Home! A creative alternative to restaurant dining for an intimate birthday celebration with friends. Setting up the meal & choosing a Chef was seamless and fun! Chef Tova was a joy to work with from before the event until the last bit of cleanup. I have already recommended this service to many friends!

Our cooking lesson with chef Kwesi completely exceeded our expectations! From the moment he arrived, we felt as though one our best friends was having a dinner party with us. Further, Chef Kwesi was incredibly knowledgeable on everything food, and our meal was outstanding! To say we learned something that day would be an understatement; I cannot recommend him highly enough!! Whether you’re having a dinner party, want a cooking lesson, or a private chef for a romantic meal, Chef Kwesi is your guy! We will certainly be booking him in the near future for all of our dinner parties.

I used this service to find a chef for an anniversary dinner with my wife. It was the first time I had booked a private chef and my expectations were exceeded. The food was amazing, it was a very enjoyable experience. As part of my search I looked through a few different booking services and this one got the fastest response and also was the best at facilitating communication with the chef. I highly recommend Chef Thierry!

Chef Joshua absolutely blew us away with his willingness to collaborate on a menu we were not only excited to eat - but also excited to learn how to cook! Josh was extremely professional and helped reassure safety precautions while cooking in our house. We had great conversation and even better food, we had our favorite Italian dishes made to fit the timeframe of the evening. This included Cacio e Pepe, lasagna Bolognese (pasta from scratch), garlic bread, gnocchi pesto (also homemade tonight) and a delicious bread pudding! Really enjoyed the tips and tricks we learned along the way, highly recommend for any special occasions, this was my fiancé‘s birthday dinner and an excellent alternative to going out! Will definitely recommend to friends and try again in the near future. …(added bonus- he cleaned the whole kitchen!)

What a wonderful treat - I'm so happy we found Table at Home! Chef Roshelle's created a menu full of soul and creativity for my husband's birthday. Exactly what I was looking for! From the beginning she was communicative, accommodating and professional. While she whipped us up a truly spectacular meal, we were pleasantly surprised that she was was also such great company. We really enjoyed our conversation with her and by the end of the night she felt like family. The meal was in a class of its own - thoughtfully sourced ingredients, cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and plentiful. I also really enjoyed the cooking tips she shared with us as she was preparing the meal. We could not have asked for more! THANK YOU Chef Roshelle for a truly memorable experience!!

I arranged for Chef Francesco to cook dinner for my fiancee and I this past Saturday night in our apartment, and everything about the meal and the experience completely exceeded our expectations. The food was incredibly delicious and Chef Francesco was a pleasure to spend time with and have in our home. I would 1000% recommend him and we are already looking forward to booking him again.

I was in a pinch, needing to host a business client dinner and table at home private chefs made this one of the easiest and most fun experiences. After providing the few details like date, number of guests, dietary restrictions, and desired price range, I received multiple meal bids from chefs telling me about the meal they would cook. I then picked the meal and chef whom I liked best, and began directly communicating with them. The meal was the best food that will ever come out of my kitchen - I was lucky enough to have a chef in my home that has been awarded a Michelin star and has been on tv shows. We had the most perfect 4 course meal and no prep or cleanup was required from me which meant I could fully entertain my business clients. I would over and above recommend table at home and I will be using again.

My husband and I used Table at Home to hire a private chef for our wedding night dinner. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to celebrate with family and friends, and so we wanted to do something to make the day feel extra special. We decided a private dinner cruise would be perfect. Through Table at Home we hired Chef Violette, who provided a phenomenal experience. I loved the ease of use with Table at Home, and the fact that inquiring was a no-pressure process. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I received proposals and was able to book the perfect chef. I have many dietary restrictions--I was able to delineate these in my request and was very pleased to see proposals come in that fell within the guidelines of what I could eat. It was easy to message Chef Violette through Table at Home as I was figuring out the details, and she was super responsive. Chef Violette made us an incredible meal that didn't violate any of my dietary restrictions, all with only a limited galley/kitchen on the boat we chartered (separately). She even contacted me ahead of time to ask what my wedding colors were so she could coordinate the table setting--we arrived to a beautifully set table with a lovely vase of flowers. Chef Violette wore a mask and gave us plenty of space, and so we felt very safe with her (given the pandemic). We originally were planning to do a private dinner cruise package with one of the big commercial bay cruise companies, but this fell through. At first I was disappointed, but now I am glad it fell through, because hiring Chef Violette through Table at Home worked out perfectly--much better than the original plan would have. I am very happy to have found Table at Home and Chef Violette, and I would definitely recommend both to anyone looking for a wonderful meal experience!

His family recipes, beautiful dishes, timing and preparation were top notch....if you miss 5 star dining experiences during Covid - call Table at Home!! You won’t be disappointed!

Due to COVID-19 trying to find an alternative option to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary was very important. I found Table at Home and thought what a perfect idea to bring the chef and celebration for a private celebration. The process was easy, our chef was Henry Lebard. He was friendly, flexible and very easy to communicate with. His food was out of this world. His knowledge of culinary arts and just the appreciation of food, flavor and fresh ingredients was second to none. He even made gluten free options special for me, even though the other guest didn't need gluten free. I was prepared to just not have that portion of the meal, but he made me something I could eat. That was above and beyond.He is truly a top notch chef. Wonderful company. Great 50th anniversary for my parents.

Cant rave enough about this service! I needed to plan a last minute 9 guest dinner party (a week prior) in Los Angeles, CA and needed a chef.After detailing that i wanted a 4 course Caribbean inspired menu I received great proposals from 5 local chefs.I ended up choosing a chef named Zachary who created a PHENOMENAL meal that included jerked octopus skewers, cilantro mint aioli, w/ roasted peppers, and a main course of steamed whole Sea Bass, w/ Jamaican coconut cream sauce.Zachary and I communicated seamlessly within the Table at Home app and via text message. He was quick to respond to my questions.At the dinner party Zachary showed up on time, COVID complaint, and ready to work! He presented each dish to guests at the table explaining the ingredients. The guests, some of whom born and raised in the Caribbean, were shocked at how delicious each course was. The flavor notes were so sophisticated and mind blowing.Table at home is a great service I couldnt have found a better chef so last minute w/o it. Highly recommended!

What a memorable experience!

I wanted to do something special to celebrate an anniversary, this can be challenging during a pandemic. We have not had anybody into our home and have practiced strict social distancing so the idea of an al fresco dinner at sunset in our backyard seemed like the only solution. Chef John did an awesome job, he prepared an amazing four course meal outside, wore a mask without the usual luxury of meal prep in a normal kitchen using a gas bbq grill and green egg. The food was delicious, Chef John was professional, pleasant, resouceful and this anniversary celebration a huge success. Thank you Chef John and Table at Home!

Table at Home was great. We found a wonderful chef, Chef Francesco to teach us how to make pasta. Chef Francesco was timely, professional, experienced, and knowledgeable while making it fun and interesting. I never thought I would be able to make my own fresh pasta by hand. I can't wait to practice and do it more! We would definitely recommend him!
