The food was excellent. Possibly the best food we've had in years. The plating was lovely and the kitchen was spotless upon their departure. I wish I could have rated the food alone, as it really was outstanding. But unfortunately, there were just so many things to consider regarding service of the meal that couldn't go unnoticed. It started with the chefs arriving 30 minutes before their scheduled time. We had just gotten home and were hardly settled when they arrived, even saying that they were running late. If that had been the case, which it wasn't, there was no contact with me prior to their arrival indicating that they were running behind. Since the dinner was going to be a surprise, this was an awful timing blunder on their part. I had things to prep before they arrived. Further, I was only expecting one chef. A two-person meal wouldn't normally take two chefs to make and I was only planning on having one person present. This was a minor inconvenience since we have been trying to expose ourselves to as few people as possible during the pandemic, but was exacerbated because neither chef was wearing a mask, which goes against the policies of Cozymeal. We're both vaccinated, but are still very conscious of making sure we're not silent spreaders. The experience of a private chef is supposed to be one in which the chef is almost not present. But Chef Andrew made himself very known while he was there, in what was unfortunately consistently uncomfortable. He repeatedly referred to my friend as a romantic partner several times, despite being corrected each time, discussed "immigrants from Mexico" as being dangerous and possibly breaking into our home, clearly not considering that we're Mexican and might take offense to that, and discussed how ridiculous it was that "everything is closed" because of the pandemic, which was a topic we were actually trying to actively avoid. He additionally discussed his own relationship with Chef Barbara, seemed a little full of himself, and interrupted us several times to begin random conversation. The service left so much to be desired. I wish I could have even rated them a four, but the outright unprofessional topics of conversation, passive racism, blind assumptions about our relationship, and narcissistic boasting, on top of consistent interruption and poorly timed arrival was just too much to ignore.
