What customers say

Chef Kwesi prepared my surprise birthday dinner. He was professional and personable. The food was delicious especially the dessert. The pictures taken doesn’t do it justice.

Oh WOW. We did this for my boyfriend’s 30th. His family came in from out of town and this was adorable, fun, and SO DELICIOUS. Chef Matthew was incredibly skilled, sociable, and fun. He cooked, plated, and cleaned. Thank you table at home

We have used Table at Home twice now and it has been absolutely wonderful. Chef Violette and Chef Leesa were not only professional, delightful, and respectful of our home...the food was very well presented and DELICIOUS! This is definitely our go to chef service when I’d actually like to enjoy the company of our guests!

We had an amazing dinner from Chef Jaime ( @jaimecooks ) she was incredibly prepared, very discreet and works incredibly well in a busy kitchen. With very diverse tastes Chef Jaime created a 5 star menu which wouldn’t have been out of place in the worlds best restaurants. The tuna tartare was sensational and would highly recommend it! Can’t wait for the next opportunity to book Chef Jaime!

I never thought I would hire a private chef for a personal event, but gave table at home a try rather than a night out at a restaurant. The flavor and plating by Chef Diana was phenomenal and it was nice to spend the night in as well. Would highly recommend for any special occasion!

First time using this website, and I plan on being a repeat customer. We had the lovely Italian Vincent prepare a 4 course meal for our luncheon. I asked for a French Italian fusion and the man did not disappoint. The food was out of this world, and his comradely was something to marvel at. Welcoming a stranger into your home to cook can feel nerve wracking, but the moment Vincent stepped into the house I felt nothing but at ease. Not only were we stuffed to the gills, but the man left a plethora of leftovers for us to gorge on later tonight. I highly recommend him.

Chef Francesco Amenta was not just a delight to have in our home but provided an exceptional meal that we cannot stop talking or thinking about. We used Table at Home as a surprise for my wife’s birthday. He created an exquisite menu keeping in mind her dietary restrictions as well as her favorite ingredients. Chef Francesco also helped set a warm ambiance and made sure we did not have to worry about a thing while he was with us.Table at Home as a service was quite accommodating and I was pleased to stumble upon the service when searching for something special to do for my wife.

We attended a dinner party for nine in Chicago where our Table at Home chefs (Robert & Holly) prepared and served a 15 course meal. Each dish was wonderfully prepared, plated, and perfectly coursed out. The chefs catered to my pregnant and vegetarian wife’s requests with substitute dishes of more than equal quality. She loved the alternative options. I would 10/10 recommend using Robert and Holly if you enjoy sophisticated, modern dishes.

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.

Chef Kwesi was great and the process was smooth. Needed a private chef for anniversary dinner and was two days away from the day smh. Sent in the request and got responses from 4 chefs within an hour. Chose chef Kwesi and am happy about my decision but all the chef options given were top notch. Table at home made the process super simple and affordable.

Chef Richard and LaToya were first class professionals in every manner. Our party of 8 enjoyed exceptional service and a fantastic meal, cooked from scratch right in my kitchen. Everything was washed and put away as well, sit back and enjoy a great evening right in your home. Chef also gladly accommodated a special request. One of the best dinners we’ve had in a long time. 5 Stars.

We had an exceptionally great cuisine experience. Our five course dinner was well prepared and tasted sumptuous. From the grilled crab cake and shrimp to the grilled sirloin with lobster tails left our mouth’s very satisfied. I must mention the warm apple tartlet for dessert and the well decorated serving plates greatly complimented our dinner. Five stars to chef Natalie Tiana for making our Valentine’s Day dinner one to remember. We will be eating another dinner from her soon.

We had such an incredible experience with Table at Home! A creative alternative to restaurant dining for an intimate birthday celebration with 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 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!
