We had the pleasure of having our dinner with made by Chef Vincent this evening. Everything was spectacular and super delicious. Definitely worth every penny. Also appreciated him taking the time to converse with our daughter and make small things to her liking.

Chef Reni made a scrumptious dinner for 6. The dinner was a celebration for my husband’s birthday. One guest was gluten free so her dinner was slightly different than the others. All of the courses were terrific. She made our night even more special!

Seriously, how did I not know about this??? This has changed my life. We had a dinner party for four and rather than cook or order take out, I tried Table at Home. The food was to die for with the best chocolate cake I’ve ever had. The convenience and the flexibility of the chef made it so easy. Highly recommend!!

Highly recommend Table at Home! I came across the site on Google and decided to give it a try. The user experience was super easy and within minutes of submitting my request I received a proposal from a private chef for my event. Within the next hour I got two more. The platform was super easy to use and it connected me with a wonderful private chef who planned the most perfect birthday brunch for our girls weekend getaway in Palm Springs.

Submitting a request for proposals on the website was incredibly easy and the instructions were straight-forward. Chef Kwesi Stephen was very responsive, professional and thorough. Not only did he prepare a delicious 3-course meal, but he packaged our leftovers and cleaned our kitchen to perfection.

Chef Mai was simply amazing! From booking until the dining experience, words cannot express how amazing this was! My husband absolutely enjoyed every part of the dining experience, but even more-so, my 13 & 12 y/o kids tried and ate everything Chef Mai brought to the table. Her interactions with us from start to finish were very personable and we definitely plan on booking more occasions to celebrate with Chef Mai’s dining experience to accompany them!! Thanks, Chef Mai!

This experience was fantastic!!!! Chef Diana arrived early and was very pleasant, prepared & clean also while following COVID-19 guidelines by wearing her mask and gloves & using the proper cleaning supplies. She prepared me and my husband an amazing 3 course meal & drink. I couldn’t believe everything she served us was FANTASTIC. From the appetizer to desert it was nothing short of 5-star quality in taste, presentation and portion.If you don’t do anything else in life please experience this in home five star quality dinner with Chef Diana.You won’t regret it.This was a birthday dinner for my husband and Chef Diana really helped me give him this wonderful first time experience.

Chef Josh was amazing! Responded immediately, confirmed each detail, arrived early, and was very professional. The food was amazing from the 1st course through the dessert! We didn’t have to drive to and from a restaurant and the kitchen was left spotless. One good thing from COVID was finding Chef Josh and eating good right at home! Thank you so much for the experience.

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 Travis was amazing! Preparing a meal beyond expectation...complete silence for the first minute or so as everyone’s eyes rolled into the backs of their heads after that first taste, followed by a huge round of applause for our incredible chef! He was also very engaging and chatted with all our crazy guests. He was the hit of the party. "

Where we serve

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.

About us

We want to make it easy to hire a great independent private chef for your next dinner party or small event

Our idea started with a belief that great experiences happen over food, and that few things are more authentic than a meal cooked in your own home.

This got us wondering:

  1. How can those of us who are a little short on time experience a meal at home that is a little more authentic than a meal kit?

  2. Where can chefs practice their passion if they don’t want to work the traditional 6 days a week in a restaurant or give up their day jobs?

Our solution is Table at Home. We have made it simple to organize a great private chef to cook for you in your home. Posting a request only takes minutes, and we have taken the guesswork out of choosing a private chef with customer reviews and photos of chefs’ creations.

We launched at the start of 2018 with a roster of amazing private chefs serving Washington D.C. and the broader DMV area. Since then, we have expanded the service to a roster of Private Chefs in New York (including Private Chefs who service The Hamptons, Jersey City and Greenwich) and a group of top Private Chefs in Chicago. In late 2018 we moved west, starting our service with Private Chefs in Los Angeles (where we have private chefs who service everywhere from Malibu to Hollywood and south to Orange County) and San Diego (where we have Private Chefs for dinner parties and Airbnb vacation home rental catering).

While our specialty is Private Chef Dinner Parties, you can also use Table at Home to hire a Private Chef for Private Cooking lessons, Vacation home catering, Special celebrations and any time that you need an amazing food experience in your home.

If you love the convenience of shared economy platforms like AirBnB or TaskRabbit, we think you will love the experience of using Table at Home to find an amazing private chef.
