I hired Chef Rob for my husband 60th birthday celebration. I kept it small due to Covid. Highly recommend him.
Responsiveness and punctuality. Excellent presentation. Food was good and tasty. The guests were delighted and left the event satisfied. This was my first experience with a personal chef. I was overjoyed and delighted. I would hire chef Rob again. Hamden, Ct.

This was the first time I hired a personal chef, I did not know what to expect and I was nervous! I hired Chef Rob for my sister’s Bachlorette party in Bringantine,NJ. Chef Rob and YaYa exceeded my expectations and put my mind at ease. They were on time and very professional. We were not rushed at all and the food... OH MY GOD... the food was INCREDIBLE!! They set up and cleaned up as well! I would recommend and hire him back in a heartbeat. His food is sooo flavorful and he cooks so much that you will have left overs the next day! Excellent job and a HUGE thank you for making our event so very special!!!

OMG! I have so much to say about Chef Robert's work. He worked with us for my husband's 50th birthday dinner party. He was phenomenal! He was patient (I have a super small kitchen) and has such a great personality. The food was AMAZING! Everyone that was in attendance could not get enough of the food and there was a ton of food for the amount of attendees I had. And he interacted so well with each and every guest. And a girlfriend of mine was even in talks with him about doing her daughter's birthday in a few months :). Also, when he was leaving my kitchen did not even look like he was even there...it was so clean. He was just AWESOME and I cannot wait to work with him again!

Chef Rob was fantastic to work with and helped create the perfect menu for our event. He sent Chef David who was amazing and cooked an absolute feast for our group of 6. Everything was delicious and I would highly recommend for any event.

We hired Chef Robert and his team for a bachelor party weekend down in Long Beach Island. Chef Renee arrived on time and kept 9 hungry men well fed with delicious southern style BBQ food (wings, ribeyes, lobster tails, ribs, brats, Mac n cheese, etc). All delicious! Job well done.

Chef Rob was absolutely excellent.
Pre-event interactions: He responded very quickly to my request and sent me a draft menu within 24 hours. Then we workshopped the menu to my liking and he was able to come down on his price to fit my budget.
Event: Chef Rob showed up on time. He pre-cleaned our kitchen, which was incredibly appreciated. He and his assistant prepared a 14-course meal for 12 guys, which he served to us on our deck outside. Each course was thoughtfully prepared, and he made more than enough food - we had enough leftovers for lunch the next day. I'm not a wings guy but the Hennessey Wings were the best wings I've ever had. Other highlights from dinner were the BBQ ribs, cajun scallops, and the lobster tails. He also made great vegetables to add some health to the table. Ended with a carrot souffle which was light yet decadent and was ravenously finished off at lunch the following morning.
Post-event: Chef and his assistant did an amazing job of cleaning up and left our kitchen twice as clean as it was when he arrived.
Thank you Chef!! I'll be in touch for another dinner in the future.

The food was amazing. My friends have been talking about it non stop since. Food was prepared beautifully and every bite was better than the last. Definitely giving Chef Rob a call for my next event. If only I could give more than 5 stars

Chef Rob came up with an outstanding menu for our 22 person dinner. The Louisianna Deviled Eggs were outstanding as was the Carrot Souffle. In short, trust the chef!
