Here is what they said about the chef.

Better than we could've ever imagined!

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Chef Steven! We hired Steven for a backyard (surprise) birthday dinner last weekend for 8 adults. He responded to my initial inquiry within an hour, helped me select a mouthwatering 5-Course tasting menu, and accommodated my every request leading up to the event. His plating and service were beautiful, and his set up and clean up were seamless. And the food! It was better than we could've ever imagined. Our friends have been talking about it all week, and they were jealous when they learned there were a few leftovers (which Steven kindly wrapped and put away in the fridge) that we ate the next evening. If you're thinking of hiring a private chef, you have to hire Steven. He made this birthday dinner a night the group will never forget. I am telling everybody I know about Steven, and I can't wait to work with him again!

Impeccable service

Highlight of the trip

I was in LA with a group of friends for my birthday and thought it'd be fun to do a private dinner party. From the start, Steven was so helpful in answering my questions, curating the dinner menu, and finalizing details with me in the days leading up to the party. In the end, everything from the food to the service was amazing and the dinner was a highlight of the trip. (Steven was also super understanding when I realized our AirBnB kitchen wasn't fully stocked!) I can't recommend Steven enough. Thank you, chef!

So memorable!

Hired Steven to cater my dinner for my 30th birthday and I can't put into words how amazing he was! Steven came so prepared and ready to execute a 3 course meal for me and 11 of my best friends. He brought out each course and cleaned up! He even went out of his way to put together the charcuterie board I wanted as an appetizer before dinner. He then brought out my cake and cut and served us all. I am so happy that I went with Steven and will definitely use him for any future events I have! Thank you Steven for making my birthday so memorable!

The food was beyond amazing, and he cleaned up after we ate. You can definitely tell he has a true passion for what he does... thank you again for making our day perfect!!!

Steven is INCREDIBLE!

Steven is INCREDIBLE! Not only was he easy to work with, on time, and extremely professional, the food was beyond top notch. All the components were fresh, organic, and perfectly paired. He also used all seasonal ingredients. A true farm to table experience. I will 100% be using Steven for all future events. If you're looking to upgrade your night to perfection, Steven is your essential ingredient.
