What customers say

We had a surprise 60th Anniversary dinner for my parents and Chef James worked with us and created an amazing dining experience. His tomato shot/ amuse Bouche was a unique starter and his agnolotti with black truffle was divine! The steak was tender and well seasoned and the butter poached lobster was just perfect. What a memorable experience!

We had a birthday dinner for three prepared in our home by Chef Lesa and it was PHENOMENAL. The best food we have had in a long time! Great interaction and such a unique 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!

Chef Jaime was AMAZING. We devoured her hangar steak with creamed corn, asparagus and fingerling potatoes. The blueberry cobbler was to die for. She was prompt, professional and we would 100% book her again. We cannot say enough good things about her!Table At Home itself was easy to use. We are so glad we found this service!

Loved this site! What a great idea to connect with private chefs. The site made it so easy to find a chef who proposed a menu of exactly what I was looking for and did an excellent job of preparing and serving. I love that you can explain what you are looking for and the chefs propose menus to fit your preferences. Excellent and easy to use. I am already telling all of my friends about it!

Chef Paul was awesome! Easy to work with to create a menu. Arrived on time and cooked an amazing dinner for us. Everything was delicious. We opted for dessert “to go” and have been nibbling on his fantastic cheesecake all night. He left the kitchen spotless. Would definitely use him and this service again.

From the request process through our dinner, we had the best experience! Requesting quotes was an easy online process. I received quotes, from multiple chefs, within a few hours. I was lucky enough to select Chef Joey. From the very beginning his communication was fantastic! He reached out to get a better understanding of what I was looking for and delivered. He arrived on-time, set a beautiful table and blew our minds with our 9-course meal! Everything was absolutely delicious, from the appetizers through the desserts. Chef Joey was fun, personable and clean!I scheduled the dinner for my Husband's birthday and he's already looking forward to our next dinner with Chef Joey!

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.

I can’t say enough about the wonderful meal Chef Marvin cooked for us. Everything was beyond amazing and the party was a huge success. I really appreciated Chef Marvin’s attention to detail, warmth and flexibility. I was in touch with him through the week preceding the event and he kept me well informed. I loved his punctuality and his cleaning (he left the kitchen even cleaner than he found it!). In this tough pandemic I couldn’t have chosen a better way to celebrate my anniversary. Thank you Table at Home and Chef Marvin for a truly unforgettable experience.

Our experience with Table at Home was great! The process of requesting the meal was quick and easy, and we got some amazing proposals.The chef we chose, Chef Jordan, was easy and amazing to work with. We were so impressed with the meal he prepared for us, and the whole experience! Our dinner was for a birthday party, and Chef Jordan tailored the menu perfectly to the birthday boy’s tastes, so much so that the birthday boy is hoping to make plans to do some cooking with Chef Jordan in the future.Before the meal, the chef was very responsive, sent a personalized note with his proposal, and responded quickly to questions about the event. On the day of the dinner, the chef communicated with us clearly about when he’d be there and brought with him everything he needed to make our fantastic meal. The chef was very personable, shared with us why he chose many of the ingredients, and talked to us about the nutritional benefits of all of what he cooked.Lastly, the food was AMAZING! The chef provided non-vegan options for those of us who are not vegan, but we all agreed that we would have been completely happy and satisfied with the fully vegan meal. The chef clearly knew his craft to a masterful level. Those of us visiting from out of town wish we lived in San Diego so we could eat Chef Jordan’s cooking again!

Great experience. Very personable and intimate. Almost makes you feel like a celebrity and very classy. Chef Josh Kepfinger was professional, on time and clean. He took his time with us and educated us on his dishes along the way. I would suggest finding a way to link chefs social media or something like that for extra validation since some new people may be weary about letting a stranger into their home and working with knives and whatnot. I would definitely recommend the service and my chef for sure.

Shawn and his wife Cindy cooked and presented a meal that was INCREDIBLE. As a fellow New Yorker who often dines out, the experience with this couple was out of this world.

Used T@H for the first time for our wedding day. Posted a request and had several great chefs respond. Picked Chef Matthew Lazarchick and it was super easy to work with him to plan our perfect meal. Exchanged some texts, had a phone call, and viola we had the BEST MEAL EXPERIENCE EVER! Chef Matthew was interactive and taught us things about cooking along the way while also allowing us time to chill as we ate some superb Italian food. Couldn't believe it was coming out of our very own kitchen. Best part was that i think the kitchen was cleaner after he left! Thanks to Chef Matthew and T@H for making our wedding day easy, fulfilling, and on point. Definitely recommend Chef Matthew and T@H.

Amazing experience from beginning to end!!! From the beginning, the process was easy. I knew I wanted to have a chef come to the house to help me celebrate my birthday. The site was easy to navigate. The hardest part was picking from the multiple proposals.Communicating with the chef was easy and she made it easy to customize the meal in a way that everyone could enjoy.She prepped a summer berry kale salad, Jamaican Jerk chicken, potato salad and a pickled cabbage slaw, topped with a Jamaican bread pudding with white truffle chocolate. Every bite was AMAZING! And everyone agreed.

Chef Shawn even welcomed my husband joining in on the cooking so he could learn a few tricks (hello, bacon jam!). His company was also as good as his food. If you're a foodie, pester him with questions!"
