“I did some graphic design work for Chef Russ years ago and still had his number on my phone. I had a birthday coming up and thought it'd be a great idea to have him come and cook for a dinner party. I am so glad he still had the same number!! He came in with an assistant and took care of EVERYTHING! It was delicious and beautifully presented! I'm a pescatarian, but the others were not so we had a choice of main dish & he accommodated our special needs well. I had the miso coated Sea Bass and...
“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.
“Chef Russ and staff did an amazing job for our wedding! He made everything so personal and so delicious. He knows what tastes good together - food and drink. Our wedding was for about 80 people held at a private home. He came in took over the kitchen, cooked on the BBQ and it was all seamless and did i mention delicious! I would highly recommend Chef for your next small dinner party or larger gathering!
“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! :)
“Chef Russ is AWESOME! Our company had a mini retreat in Tahoe not too long ago and wanted a fun in home meal prepared for our group It was our way to team build and be pampered a bit while on a weekend away. It was a last minute kind of an idea that we didn't think about until we were already at the cabin, but we thought we would see what was possible... I believe I called Chef Russ at 8pm on a Saturday night and at the end of our call, I had menu selections emailed to...
“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...
“I've used Chef Russ three times now. First time he cooked for just our family. We threw him what we thought was a curve ball, asking for something you can't get at most restaurants: Ossu Bucco (beef, not pork), and this was absolutely not a stretch for him. He came, cooked and served a fabuolous dinner, and then cleaned up. :) Next we had a small (8 people) dinner party and that was the truly one of the most amazing dinner parties ever. Everyone was blown...
“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 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...
“You should absolutely choose Chef Russ. He is friendly, knowledgeable & an incredible chef. We've had him to our home multiple times and the food is amazing. He also goes above and beyond offering to answer any questions that ever come up while cooking. I really like how he cleans everything up at the end of the night. Highly recommend.
