This was my second time having Chef Santiago work with me on special occasions. First, my girlfriend's surprise Christmas gift and my now fiance's engagement dinner (hours after the proposal) with 9 people. Chef did an incredible job working with a large group of people both teaching and cooking at the same time. He did a great job of being patient and diligent about his work. And as usual, the food was great. My now in-laws loved the surprise which made me very happy. Well done and consistent as usual chef Santiago. Book him now!

I've never been more happy to leave a review for someone, as I am now for Chef Santiago. Chef helped me deliver an intimate experience for a private birthday dinner I had planned for my lady. His professionalism and ability to make a meal that left us both with a full belly and a smile that I expect to last for some time. Chef took the time to share his knowledge / experience with us as questions about the meal came up; which again helped to showcase his passion for his field. Thanks Chef! I will definitely recommend you to friends and invite you back out when the next opportunity comes around!

Santiago is amazing! It was our first time trying Columbian food, and it was absolutely delicious! He explained the dishes very well and was happy to share littles cooking tips. Santiago prepared plenty of food, and my fiancee and I were so stuffed that we only had one meal the other day lol. THANK YOU Chef for making our proposal dinner so special!! P.S.: we finished all the food today ;)) still as tasty as they were two days ago
