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.

I can't say enough good things about this company. I waited until the last minute to plan a birthday dinner at home for my mother, and the process of finding a chef was so easy through Table at Home. Chef Cashimiere made the most outstanding and delectable meal for us and was able to accommodate all of our needs. We couldn't have asked for a better scenario. I highly recommend!

Our experience with Table at Home was wonderful. It was a seamless experience from start to finish. We had multiple offers at first based on what we indicated we were looking for (a nice family dinner to honor a loved one). Chef Kyle could not have been better. He worked with us on creating our ideal menu and was great about communicating the entire time. Day of he arrived promptly on time and delivered the experience we were hoping and needing. It was really nice having a professional prepare such a wonderful meal. Highly recommend!

We hired Chef Nicole for a cooking class. Theme: French. We had a great time. Nicole was very nice and friendly. She even brought me flowers. She was very accomodating to some last minute changes we made to the menu. Her food was delicious. Good quality ingredients. Almost everything she brought was organic. I was especially looking forward to learning to make Grand Marnier Souffle with the sauce and it turned out perfect! She made the class interactive and I will definitly be making the new recipies she taught. Thank you Chef Nicole!

After trying to use a couple of Personal Chef services, finally landed on Table at Home and couldn't have been happier with the end result. I, we ended up working with Chef Meg and she was fantastic...she was flexible with the menu and provided a Chef's Table kind of experience, exactly what we wanted. She was also very enthusiastic and entertaining 🤣.

I must say, this was a fantastic way to throw a dinner party! All we had to do was tidy the house and set the table for 8 people. Our chef Meg was fabulous. She started the evening with shrimp tempura amuse bouche, followed by a caprese salad, halibut or filet mignon and ended it with the best crème brûlée I’ve ever had. Both entrees were delicious. I decided to get a helper for her so I could sit with the guests the entire time.Meg and Sonia were very professional and friendly. I highly recommend Meg and thank her for helping me create an elegant and delicious experience for my partner’s birthday party.

Absolutely FANTASTIC. This business is everything you could imagine and more. Within 5 minutes of posting we had three responses with diverse menus that fit the cuisine we were looking for. We went with Chef Vera (the BEST) and never looked back. She sourced the freshest ingredients - shrimp, veal, vegetables - and everything was cooked to perfection. Aside from the food, Chef Vera was a genuine delight to have in our home. She was the sweetest person and so great to our kids. We will 100% be using this service again.

Chef Nick made my husbands 40th birthday AMAZING. Initially I chose a different chef website that I would never use again. Take a chef was easy, reliable and cut and dry. From the first time speaking to chef Nick he was a true gentleman and an absolute pleasure to work with. He made an elote tostada for appetizer that was BY FAR the best we’ve ever had. Carnitas tacos for dinner with the freshest ingredients and the flavors were unreal. For dessert he made a lemon tart with confit cherries. Can’t wait for Chef Nick to come again. Incredible experience!

What an amazing experience! It was delicious, intimate, educational, and so much fun. It was fine dining in my home with great friends. Chef Brenda is a fabulous chef, I highly recommend her, I know I will have her back. It really felt like she was part of the family. The best part is she helped me in a pinch. I kept my fingers crossed I would get a response the night before my event. I found Table At Home, gave it a shot, and received two responses. Knocked it out of the park! Thank you Table At Home and with gratitude Chef Brenda!

We used Table at Home to find a local chef for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary dinner. Table at Home made it so easy to connect with chefs offering a wide variety of cuisines. We worked with Chef Vincent and we cannot say enough great things about him and his food! He accommodated the entire family- even bringing supplies for the younger kids to make pizzas while the adults ate dinner! Delicious food, great stories, and extremely talented and professional. If you’re in the Austin area we HIGHLY recommend him! He made our night one to remember!
