Chef Santiago went out of his way to fit us in on short notice with a tight schedule. He showed up on time and was very courteous. We kept our social distance and our masks on and it didn't really come between us having a fantastic meal with my family for the holidays. His food was spectacular. From the soup all the way to the pie everyone was blown away by the food and it's presentation. And as fast as he came, poof, he was gone and everything was all cleaned up. Very relaxing as a host to have a professional like this come in and handle such an important part of an event.

Chef Santiago was amazing -- food was tasty and he was professional. We didn't tell him to keep to himself but he kept his focus entirely on the food and the experience. The Greek cuisine food was so good and so filling. The appetizer board was beautiful and so yummy! The lamb was great, too. I wish I wasn't so full. And the cheesecake was SO GOOD. He served it a bit warm which I had never had before but turned out it was better than I could have imagined. I hope to use his services again in the future! Thanks, Santiago!

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!
