Testimonials

I cannot recommend HeyChef! enough.  I wanted to have a special dinner at a reunion with friends at a rental home in Truckee. I was worried about trying to arrange a dinner party long distance in a house I'd never seen, but Holly made everything so easy.  They happily accommodated our request for a special entree and dealt with multiple food allergies when creating our menu.  Holly even made a special trip to meet us the morning of our event to pick up some special food we had brought. Chef Grog made us an amazing meal (even the guest who doesn't care for fish LOVED the salmon dish) and was so charming with all the guests. Our server, Michelle, served us like we were royalty. And she was so wonderful with all the children at the event. I wouldn't hesitate to hire HeyChef! for any event.  So don't hesitate -- call them now and book them!

I tell it like it is - I like to shout from the rooftops when I have had a great experience - and same for a poor experience. I make an effort to show both sides, constructive criticism is a good thing. That said...I can ONLY say great things about HeyChef! From the very first call with Holly to the final invoicing - this team is tip top - professional, helpful, knowledgable and all around fantastic. Our company held a corporate retreat, for a client, in Truckee. The HeyChef! team made our event a smashing success. Chef Grog was wonderful, his talent, personality and professionalism, all tip top. Our guests felt spoiled by the food quality and service provided.

Cassidy and Jen were our servers/bartenders, and these ladies didn't miss a beat. They were lovely, well groomed, friendly and professional. They required no direction, they just went to work with a smile on their faces.

The meals were DELICIOUS, we had the opportunity to have Chef Grog and the ladies provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I must give a shout out to the hollandaise sauce - they're sick of hearing about it at this point - but you need to know! The BEST I have ever had. The menus can accommodate all tastes, from simple to complicated, the elegance and attention to detail is not skimped.
Wedding, special dinner, family reunion, corporate retreat? Call HeyChef! These folks will take care of you!!

10/31/2011 Highly recommended! Chef Grog prepared a wonderful meal at our house.  He called several days before to plan the menu and make suggestions.  We quickly realized he was well schooled in all manners of cuisine.  The meal was excellent and the kitchen was left cleaner then when he arrived.  We had Christie as service staff and she added greatly to the dinner by mixing and serving drinks etc.  Both Chef Grog and Christie wore uniforms and were very professional.

4/6/2014  HeyChef! recently prepared a private dinner for our wedding night at a rental cabin in Old Greenwood, and it was the most personable and special experience you can imagine.  They were attentive to our needs from the point we first reached out all the way through the billing process.

Having decided to come to Tahoe to get married without family and friends, we looked for every opportunity to create special memories.  And HeyChef! definitely delivered.

I would use them again for a private dinner or dinner party.  I had no idea that you can have the experience of a 5-star restaurant in the luxury and privacy of your own home, and have someone else take care of all the details.

Bravo HeyChef!  Thanks to Holly and Chef Grog for making this such a wonderful experience.

Wow! We certainly had fabulous comments about all the delicious food you prepared for us. Thank you so much for feeding our guests such wonderful treats and for making my life so much easier during our frantic days leading up to the wedding. I hope you all felt comfortable in my kitchen. I sensed that you work so well even in strange kitchens, and I appreciated that you just found everything you needed and didn't need me to answer questions or show you where things were.  The whole experience was fabulous. I would hire you all again in a flash. Thank you for cleaning up so thoroughly too. It was such a pleasure to walk back into the kitchen and see it gleaming. Wonderful, delicious, exceptional! And Holly, I am so impressed with your calm and professionalism on the phone. You had me feeling peaceful and so well taken care of and I appreciate you for that!
Thanks again to all.

Grog and team just finished a marathon weekend where I hosted over 50 people for two dinners and two breakfasts.  The quality of food and service were fantastic! They've also done dinner parties for me as small as six people with just as much care, service and attention to detail as a much bigger event.  I highly recommend and trust them for events of all sizes.

Grog and team have worked on more than a dozen events for me over the last five years and are fantastic! I eat out a lot all over the world, and HeyChef's quality and service are as good as any high-end restaurant. I have had them put on an impromptu dinner with almost no notice and had them handle events with months of advance planning. The arrangements and prep were painless in all cases and the food excellent. I can't recommend them highly enough.

From first phone contact until party clean-up, HeyChef! impressed us and our guests.  We had a small party, and I wanted to do some things myself; Cassidy stepped right in and rolled with everything. Holly explains things clearly, including every charge, in advance.  Chef Grog was patient with my questions during our phone consult.  Give them a call for a party large or small.

My wife and I had Grog and Meghan over at our house to serve a sit down Christmas party dinner for eleven with hors d’oeuvres. What a great experience! Every guest commented on how wonderful the food was and the service impeccable. A truly memorable experience for all. HeyChef! left my kitchen and dining room cleaner then when they arrived departing with "Are you sure there is nothing more we can do?" I rate the experience a Five Star.  This was our third experience with Holly, Grog, and company, and we are looking forward to our next...They offer consistent excellence.

I can get used to this first class treatment. Grog was amazing and Rose was awesome! She took such great care of us. She went above and beyond her duties! Cleaned up spilt wine, broken glasses etc.!! Thank you for an amazing party!!

HeyChef! treated us to a most outstanding dinner ever.  Presentation was superb! Food was sumptuous! We never had to lift a finger. Chef’s helpers were so cheerful. What a surprise when we woke in the morning.  Kitchen was immaculate.  All we had to do was push the button for the coffee pot.  Treat yourselves next time you’re in the Tahoe area.  You will not be disappointed.

As a surprise for my in-law's 50th Wedding Anniversary, we asked the HeyChef! staff to prepare an extremely special dinner for our family. They came through with flying colors!! Chef Bryan prepared an absolutely fantastic meal and the server Gaylene was terrific as well. They took care of every detail from start to finish the entire evening. What an extraordinary memory HeyChef! created for our family.

HeyChef! put on a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner for about 45 people ranging in age from 1 to 77.  It was short notice but everything ran smoothly.  The food was fantastic... especially the chicken chili.... and Chefs Grog and Jeremiah and servers Sarah and Donna were fun, warm and rolled with the flow.  Thank you so much and we will be seeking your services again soon!
