Chef Airon was fabulous! He was very easy to communicate with prior to our event. Chef Airon created a delicious Italian theme menu for our dear friend’s 50th birthday dinner. Not only was the food delicious, he also cleaned the kitchen after serving the 3 course dinner. Highly recommend Chef Airon.

Chef Tony DiSalvo created a Michelin star experience in our home for my foodie friends. He was on time, prepared, genuine, an excellent communicator pre-event, and an exceptional chef during the party. Everyone at the party raved about his sashimi, baby artichoke salad, Wagyu beef filets, home-made gluten free pasta, celery root purée and gf chocolate torte. His magnetic and fun personality gave all of the guests looking for trade secrets an unforgettable experience. He is a gem and a gift to the culinary profession. He even cleaned up so we could focus on connecting with our guests. He was a true partner in the kitchen in every way and you would be lucky to have him help host a cooking party.

I was looking to book a fine dining level experience to celebrate my wife’s birthday. After an easy google search I found Table at Home, the user interface was so easy to navigate. I entered my dinner requirements and working 24 hours I had my first professional chef prepared menu, after 48 hours I had several more proposals. All proposed menus were clearly listed and very detailed. Each were high quality! Once I made my decisions the chef and i began to communicate via phone and text to plan the details of our dinner. It was perfect! Prices were competitively priced to any 5 star fine dining restaurant in the Washington DC area. I highly recommend chef Natalie!!

I booked Sunny for private birthday dinner for 2 for my boyfriend 32nd birthday. He was super professional. Arrived on time. He cooked exactly what was agreed upon on the menu. The food was delicious. N my boyfriend is a foodie so he really appreciated Sunny's action to detail and the quality of the ingredients served especially the meats . He was super helpful in making my birthday surprise a success. Will book again and recommend him for others. Great job glad I found table at home.

I used Table at Home to provide my sister and her family with a fine dining experience. It is difficult for them to go out since they are caring for one of their disabled daughters. This experience gave them the joy of eating a restaurant type gourmet meal together as a family. Francesco was their chef and his Italian meal was excellent! They truly thought the food was amazing as well as all the conversation with Francesco. He and I spoke a few times to set the menu and details. He was so personable and had great suggestions esp since we required a vegetarian menu. I would definitely recommend Francesco again to more family and friends. I would also recommend Table at Home!

Chef Alex...you were amazing. Clean, prompt, and, most importantly, the food was delicious. Thank you! However, I wouldn't have gotten the privilege of working with Chef Alex without going through the Table at Home portal. Easy to use, with a variety of choices as it pertained to the menu. And the response time coordinated well with my plans. In the end, I did a little work with the portal, Chef Alex catered amazingly, and my wife enjoyed it. That's what matters the most. Gratitude to Table at Home.

My wife hired Chef Cashimiere to make me a birthday dinner in our home. I'd have to say that the experience was one of the best birthday presents I've ever received. And, the meal ranks as one of the best I've ever eaten, period. As well as being a great chef, Cashimiere was fun to talk with while he was cooking. He started us with a bruschetta appetizer, and then led us through salad and an amazing duck 2 ways main course. Dessert was profiteroles with custard and berries for me, and chocolate moose for my wife. My description though, doesn't even begin to describe the decadence of the meal. Each element of each course could have stood on its own as an entree. At the end of the meal I jokingly asked if he could come back next week - but we would love to have him back again soon!

I used table at home to book a private chef for my wife and I on our anniversary, and the website was very easy to use, and the process was flawless! We ended up having a great night, the food was amazing, and the chef was great at communicating with us and assisting us with planning. I thought it would be much more complicated, but it turned out to be very easy. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

The full turn key experience provided by Chef Ben was outstanding. From working with me on several iterations to the menu, accommodating my ask for printed menus for our guests to promptly responding to all my emails.I was very impressed with the presentation and taste of each dish he served. Our meal included appetizers, salad, 2 main courses and 2 desserts. Each better than the next dish.It was such a treat, to be out of the kitchen and enjoy the company of our guests, with the extra win-win bonus of a clean and tidy kitchen at the end of the evening!Service received was first class – and the thought and attention beforehand was amazing. Thank you again for your hard work, Chef. Your food definitely contributed greatly to the success of our party.

Chef Alessandro is an amazing chef and beyond that, an interesting person that is easy to talk too. He was very communicative before the event letting us know his time of arrival and also showing us a picture preview of the lovely ravioli that he made for us earlier in the day! Upon arrival he took off and changed shoes (which was appreciated due to the wet weather outside) and changed into professional chef attire. He was extremely organized and made a 4 course dinner for two look like a breeze. He was comfortable cooking in front of us and chatted with us when engaged. He was professional and kind throughout the evening- even snapping some pictures for us. The food was wonderful! We will invite Chef Alessandro back again to share this experience with our friends!

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.
