Dinner Parties
Call Atlanta Chef Service Today
Impress your guests with meals served in the comfort of your home with service they would expect in an upscale restaurant. We’ll handle all of the cooking, serving, and cleaning so you can enjoy every minute with your guests. We’re happy to accomodate parties of any size, from two up to as many people as your space will hold. While we like to do most of the cooking on site to keep it as fresh as possible (and allow you to experience the show if you’d like), we also have our own catering facilities which allows us to provide food even if a kitchen isn’t available. Our team of personal chefs develops a new menu for each season, and we are also happy to customize the perfect menu for you for any event. Check out some sample menus below, as well as some photos of actual dinners we’ve done. You can also check out more pictures, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
