Testimonials

May 18, 2013
We were looking for something different to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. I found Chef Russ on the internet. All his positive reviews made the decision easy. We had 13 for a formal dinner with a choice of steak or salmon. Chef Russ and his assistants came out and just did everything! The food was amazing. Fresh and well prepared. Russ encourages questions and likes to talk about food and cooking....he's no food snob! He'll even share his recipes. His assistants set up the tables with linens...

We enjoyed a private dinner catered by Russ - he offered a variety of local ingredients that left us in awe.  We will call him first when considering future gatherings with friends and family.   The main items were excellent, but it was the appetizers and sauces that put the meal over the top - fresh brochette with locally grown toppings, a savory goat cheese pizza, a wedge of fresh brie with the pear and arugula salad, and the sauce topping the filet. Not only was the food...

Chef Russ and The Hidden Table Gourmet company that he operates is fantastic.   I have experienced his services as both a personal chef, and as a caterer for large events.  In each category, he has received excellent reviews.  His desire to please his  clients is second to none.  I truly believe that he will continue to polish his operation and organization as the opportunity to cater large events arises, while maintaining his "personal" touches and attention to his...

What a find!  Thanks fellow Yelp reviewers.  The wonderful (and now verified accurate) Yelp reviews for Chef Russ was the reason I "cold called" him for my son's graduation party (80 family and friends).  He had such a positive vibe when we spoke on the phone while planning our event.  Chef Russ was so amenable to working with me on both menu and pricing. As I told my family ... if his food is as wonderful as his demeanor and spirit, then our dinner would be successful....

I have a different point of view from the other reviews here. I didn't hire The Hidden Table for an event. I was a guest at a party catered by The Hidden table. I went to a graduation party for some family friends. I was surprised to see the hostess of the party actually walking around and talking to people, instead of running around frantically trying to keep up with the appetizer table for the 80 guests. She is not the type of person to relax as the hostess. She is usually trying to get...

Chef Russ and his fabulous helper did a cooking class for us in our home through a Living Social deal.  We had the option of either rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands dirty along side him, or sitting back and relaxing with a bottle of wine while being schooled.  It had been a long week for us so we chose to relax and watch Chef in action. We learned some great tricks to make SERIOUSLY the BEST roasted potatoes you'll ever have, and an amazingly simple lava cake.  He also...

Chef Russ has provided amazing meals for us.  We are very picky and only like clean eating.  Chef has provided not only variety, but also great tasting meals.  The convenience of coming home from work and having the weeks meals waiting is the best!  If you are busy people without time to shop, prepare and cook healthy meals I recommend Chef Russ.  You will love it!

I was recently in a wedding on Lake Tahoe. Chef Russ and his team did a fantastic job. They served a cheese and meat appetizer plate, rosemary chicken, roasted vegetables, a gorgonzola salad and the most AMAZING smashed russet and garlic yam potatoes. They were so delicious!! The whole team was fantastic and very nice. They even made the bride and us bridesmaids a little appetizer plate while we were waiting to go down the aisle. They cleaned up and even left us with all the left overs. YUM!...

Myself and friends had the pleasure of meeting Chef Russ a few months ago on a Living Social deal. He was great fun, cooked with us an amazing dinner and his side kick was a doll. We now have developed a great friendship with him and cooked some recipes he has given us for dinner. I would fully recommend his service if you want to join in cooking with him, or just sit back and have a great bottle of wine and watch him do his magic. He is a great guy.

We had Chef Russ come to our house for my 6-year old's birthday party.  It was fantastic and Chef was great with the kids.  My little guy has asked for him to come  back and cook again many times.  Definitely recommend him!  :)
