“I was recently in a wedding on Lake Tahoe. Chef Russ and his team did a fantastic job. They served a cheese and meat appetizer plate, rosemary chicken, roasted vegetables, a gorgonzola salad and the most AMAZING smashed russet and garlic yam potatoes. They were so delicious!! The whole team was fantastic and very nice. They even made the bride and us bridesmaids a little appetizer plate while we were waiting to go down the aisle. They cleaned up and even left us with all the left overs. YUM!...
“We've been utilizing Chef's services for about 18 weeks now and we absolutely love it. So convenient and delicious we aren't sure how we ever got along without him!
“Russ is great! He has cooked for our family numerous times and it is always amazing. Try his beef wellington....it's rediculous!! But event the simple stuff like Chili is the best I've ever had. Hurry up and book Chef Russ for whatever you can. Amazing....glad we found him!
“You should absolutely choose Chef Russ. He is friendly, knowledgeable & an incredible chef. We've had him to our home multiple times and the food is amazing. He also goes above and beyond offering to answer any questions that ever come up while cooking. I really like how he cleans everything up at the end of the night. Highly recommend.
“We enjoyed a private dinner catered by Russ - he offered a variety of local ingredients that left us in awe. We will call him first when considering future gatherings with friends and family. The main items were excellent, but it was the appetizers and sauces that put the meal over the top - fresh brochette with locally grown toppings, a savory goat cheese pizza, a wedge of fresh brie with the pear and arugula salad, and the sauce topping the filet. Not only was the food...
“Chef Russ and The Hidden Table Gourmet company that he operates is fantastic. I have experienced his services as both a personal chef, and as a caterer for large events. In each category, he has received excellent reviews. His desire to please his clients is second to none. I truly believe that he will continue to polish his operation and organization as the opportunity to cater large events arises, while maintaining his "personal" touches and attention to his...
“Chef Russ and staff did an amazing job for our wedding! He made everything so personal and so delicious. He knows what tastes good together - food and drink. Our wedding was for about 80 people held at a private home. He came in took over the kitchen, cooked on the BBQ and it was all seamless and did i mention delicious! I would highly recommend Chef for your next small dinner party or larger gathering!
“What a find! Thanks fellow Yelp reviewers. The wonderful (and now verified accurate) Yelp reviews for Chef Russ was the reason I "cold called" him for my son's graduation party (80 family and friends). He had such a positive vibe when we spoke on the phone while planning our event. Chef Russ was so amenable to working with me on both menu and pricing. As I told my family ... if his food is as wonderful as his demeanor and spirit, then our dinner would be successful....
“Chef Russ is amazing! His food and service is incredible. I have also worked with him during much of his charitable works, when he donates his time to prepare food for large events for local nonprofits. I am so excited for all of his success and would recommend him for any event or occassion!
“We were looking for something different to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. I found Chef Russ on the internet. All his positive reviews made the decision easy. We had 13 for a formal dinner with a choice of steak or salmon. Chef Russ and his assistants came out and just did everything! The food was amazing. Fresh and well prepared. Russ encourages questions and likes to talk about food and cooking....he's no food snob! He'll even share his recipes. His assistants set up the tables with linens...
