Just a few guest reviews of our food . . .
“. . . We did enlist the EXPERT services of Darren for dinner, and let me tell you – he did NOT disappoint. An original take on the caprese salad was transformative, as was the steak, which he cooked masterfully. For desert, he brought out a creme brulee that put some of the finest SF restaurants to shame. Oh, and did I mention this all happened at a specially set table for two, right under the stars . . .”
“I have owned several restaurants and I can confidently say Darren is a fabulous cook and knows food very well. All the ingredients were high quality and organic, bought fresh that day from the market and local butcher shop. Great value for the price as portion size were perfect. The ambience and attention to detail provided were superb. Their home is beautifully decorated and the massive outdoor deck allows alternate locations for dining and ample room for lounging.”
“Our dinner on the terrace, with our private chef, Darren, was an experience beyond price. It was so peaceful and the views so stunning we wished we could have stayed much longer. We can hardly wait to go back. What a lucky find.”
“The continental breakfast they offer is delicious and fresh. We opted to have dinner cooked for us one evening – divine! Darren is an amazing chef and the meal he and Monte served us was the equivalent to eating at a fine restaurant.”
“Highly recommend the dinner by Darren, one of the best salads I’ve ever had.”
