It was a great experience to work with Chef Nicholas. I had hired him for a 50th birthday event for a friend. He was easy to talk to and suggested various options for the party. We finalized on a cocktail party with a mix of pass around h'ors d'oeuvres and small plates from his appetizer and entrée listing.  He also provided some wine suggestions to pair with the food and that was that.The day of the event, he arrived early and began setting up and prepping in the kitchen. By the time the guests arrived an hour later he was ready with the first item. It was then a perfect cadence of incoming beautifully plated and served food.We had chose about 8 items from his extensive menus. Our most favorite ones were the Tuna Teriyaki on Wonton Crisps and Wasabi Mayonnaise, Roasted Garlic & Brie Tartlets, Crispy Asparagus Fries, Coconut Shrimp with Pear Chutney, and the Almond Creme Brulee!All the guests absolutely enjoyed the experience and Chef Nicholas was not shy to engage with us - even joined in the party game and other festivities. Also, the cake that I had purchased elsewhere he offered to cut and serve which was a great help as it was pretty big and full of detailed decorations that needed to be carefully taken off.Thank you Chef Nicholas for a lovely evening of fantastic food and service!

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Nicholas at our annual friends' Christmas dinner. Not only was the food incredible, Chef Nicholas is so friendly and funny. After we'd finished the last course we noticed that like magic, the kitchen was spotless! What a luxurious and memorable experience. I look forward to doing this again!

Dear Chef NicholasThank you so very much for making our "Siblings Christmas Gathering" such a great success. The meal was absolutely delicious and as each course was served a detailed description of the plate was provided. I was able to spend time with my guests without the stress of cooking, serving and clearing the table. The kitchen was left spotless and dishes were in the dishwasher. Thank you again for the personal chef experience!

We had Chef Nicholas join us for a family birthday celebration. We discovered him through his online reviews and found him to be responsive and accommodating throughout the planning process. On the day, he arrived promptly to set up. He was friendly, passionate about cooking, and was very detail oriented. The meal was delicious and beautifully plated. The experience was very memorable and we’ll be talking about it for years to come. We highly recommend Chef Nicholas and look forward to having him at events in the future!

Chef Nicolas did a wonderful birthday party dinner for my dad's birthday. His communication was impeccable and the food was great. He really listened to what we wanted and his food doesn't rely on heavy use of salt or fats to make it delicious. He uses great quality ingredients well prepared.
Chef Nick prepares delicious meals. He was the star of our week at our cottage rental as he cooked meals for 3 days!

It was so nice not to have to cook or clean up for a party of 8. Chef Nicholas is very professional and the food was awesome. We chose the French onion soup, everyone still raves about it and the grilled tenderloin that was so tender that you could cut it with a regular knife and the double chocolate mousse that was very light and tasty. Thank you Chef Nicholas for making my parents 70th Anniversary very special. Would definitely hire him again.

My husband and I enjoyed an exquisite 3-course dinner in celebration of our 21st wedding anniversary and we highly recommend Chef Nicholas! He arrived early, fully prepared, very professional, friendly and his service is stellar! From our first contact, continued communication during planning, table set-up, cooking, serving and cleanup, Chef Nicholas was absolutely wonderful. He did it all and with grace. His food presentation was lovely and we will hire him again down the road for another fun and relaxing dining experience. Pricing was reasonable and well worth his service!

I hired him to cater dinner for my Mum & Grandad, and boy did he make it a special night for us! Delicious food and wonderful conversation - Chef does not dissapoint! I can hardly wait until next year so we can hire him again.

We had Chef Nicholas for our anniversary dinner and was blown away. He even threw in a little something for our 2 year old that she just gobbled up. Every dish was cooked to perfection. I thought it was a little weird that all his reviews were 5 stars but once you try his cooking it makes sense. We can't wait to have Chef Nicholas again! Thanks for the great experience and lovely company.

Chef Nicholas is FIVE STAR. He uses ingredients of the finest quality, his herbing/seasoning is subtle and completely complementary to whatever he has prepared. He has been my chef for four important occasions, and I will continue to ask him to cook for me long into the future. Yum, Yum, Yum: everything he makes is exquisitely delicious.

Chef Nicholas treated us to a wonderful 3-course dinner, delivered to our home (during COVID restrictions). Instructions were very clear to prepare everything at home as needed. Everything was high quality and good amount for 2 people. We loved the tenderloin, and especially the creme brûlée with fresh fruit for dessert. A great birthday dinner!

Chef Nicholas was absolutely fabulous. I was surprised with a private dinner for my birthday in October. Chef Nicholas was very polite, and professional. He served a spectacular 3 course meal, that tasted better than any 5 star restaurant we could have went to. He truly surpassed my expectations, and brought fine dining in the comfort of our own home! Would highly recommend, thank you again!

We hired Chef a Nicholas for my friends surprise birthday dinner and it was an absolute pleasure to have him host for us. The entire process was very easy from the very beginning. We ended up having an unexpected guest last minute and chef Nicholas was able to accommodate for an additional person last minute. I would definitely hire him again for all my other dinner parties! Oh and not to mention the food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Thank you for making our evening more special!

Chef Nicholas was extremely professional, especially since we used his service during COVID. He socially distanced, wore gloves and a mask the entire time and was pleasant company while he prepared the meal. We had arranged a surprise birthday for my boyfriend for an 8 course tasting menu (his favourite). He enjoyed every dish and we had such a lovely evening. Thank you again for your help to make the birthday special.

We hired Chef Nicholas for a family gathering in honour of two significant birthdays (83 and 80) and we are so happy we did. Options were limited diluting Covid but Chef made a spectacular three course surf and turf dinner that was loved by all, including the kids(13-20). Chef was courteous, responsive, safety conscious and extremely positive. It was a very special evening and we look forward to using Chef Nicholas in the future.

Chef Nicholas is unparalleled in terms of his culinary skills, his professionalism, his attention to detail and his beautiful, kind heart. My husband is stroke disabled and he has dementia. Chef Nicholas presented exquisitely plated courses, then cut my husband’s food into manageable pieces so I could feed him more easily. If I could rate him with ten stars, I would. I look forward to the next occasion. He’s simply THE BEST.

Another wonderful dinner catered for us at our house by Chef Nick. Our guests were treated to a great service and wonderful food. We have been getting Chef Nick to cater our special occasions and dinner parties for over 5 years since we discovered him when our little guy was born and made it challenging to get the whole family out for a birthday meal. Chef Nick is very flexible and always works with us to customize the best menu for the event we are organizing. Since we discovered Nick, I do not see any point in going to the restaurant for any events or get together. We just call Chef Nick.

Chef Nicholas was hired to help celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary and he lived up to our expectation for the event. He was very professional, courteous, and a pleasant addition to our evening. The food was terrific (salmon and beet appetizer was excellent) and it really elevated our night. He did not 'get in the way' at all and offered a really nice dining experience in the comfort of our home.

Chef Nicolas spent 4 days with us at a cottage in Muskoka to help us celebrate our parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. He was nothing but professional and served us gourmet food 3x a day! He made our experience so relaxing so that we could just enjoy family time without worrying about food preparation. We highly recommend Chef Nicholas!

As you know this was a surprise not only for my Mom, but also for my husband and I as we have never had a personal chef before. All I can say is that we were absolutely blown away with your professionalism and fantastic meal! All six of us thoroughly enjoyed everything, right down to the chive butter! The quality of the food was top notch and you have set the bar high for future birthday parties! Thank you again!
