Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.

We had a great time celebrating my husband's birthday with Chef Matt. He was energetic, informative and cooked a fantastic meal for us. Highly recommend as it was a night to remember.

Chef Matt was wonderful and so knowledgable. The food turned out amazing and he was so easy to talk with. I would recommend this to anyone and we felt very safe since he was wearing his mask. I would do it again! Summer

Our chef cancelled at the last minute and has offered no support in helping us obtain our refund. Weeks of careful planning with another couple, including expensive childcare, was wasted. We will not be using Cozymeal again and we will be warning our friends away from this organization.
