Testimonials

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...

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!

We had Chef Russ come to our house for my 6-year old's birthday party.  It was fantastic and Chef was great with the kids.  My little guy has asked for him to come  back and cook again many times.  Definitely recommend him!  :)

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...

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....

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 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...

I did some graphic design work for Chef Russ years ago and still had his number on my phone. I had a birthday coming up and thought it'd be a great idea to have him come and cook for a dinner party. I am so glad he still had the same number!! He came in with an assistant and took care of EVERYTHING! It was delicious and beautifully presented! I'm a pescatarian, but the others were not so we had a choice of main dish & he accommodated our special needs well. I had the miso coated Sea Bass and...

I have a different point of view from the other reviews here. I didn't hire The Hidden Table for an event. I was a guest at a party catered by The Hidden table. I went to a graduation party for some family friends. I was surprised to see the hostess of the party actually walking around and talking to people, instead of running around frantically trying to keep up with the appetizer table for the 80 guests. She is not the type of person to relax as the hostess. She is usually trying to get...

Chef Russ is AWESOME!  Our company had a mini retreat in Tahoe not too long ago and wanted a fun in home meal prepared for our group  It was our way to team build and be pampered a bit while on a weekend away.  It was a last minute kind of an idea that we didn't think about until we were already at the cabin, but we thought we would see what was possible...  I believe I called Chef Russ at 8pm on a Saturday night and at the end of our call, I had menu selections emailed to...

Our Food

At The Hidden Table, we believe in locally sourced, seasonal menus that are created with care and thought. We listen and spend time with each client to create highly stylized events that capture their unique personality and style. Our custom menus focus on locally grown, sustainable ingredients presented with style and panache.

However, what makes The Hidden Table really unique is our commitment to prepping and cooking most of our menu items directly on-site. We believe this "bringing the restaurant to you" approach is what consistently makes the quality and guest experience of our food the best in the industry. Just read our reviews. 

Depending on the season and availability, we can’t always promise our clients locally sourced ingredients, but we will always choose organic products in their stead.

No event is too small or too large for our team of experienced event planners, who will work with you on every facet of your event. We pride ourselves on our accessibility, flexibility, follow through, and attention to minute details, as well as, our award winning farm-to-table menus.
