Dinner Parties
Call Atlanta Chef Service Today

Nothing says you care more than an invitation to share food in your home. Impress your guests with dinners 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. Perfect for corporate dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, executive retreats, and more.

We’re happy to accommodate 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 licensed catering kitchen which allows us do prep work in advance. Our team of personal chefs develop a new sample menu for each season, and we are also happy to customize the perfect menu 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.
