Chef Khari and his team are the best!! They came on time and prepared before event starts. He cooked best foods for my event and they always smile for my guests when serving!!!!! we all loved them and their food. What a great experience hiring this team. During the event, I though I am super lucky to find these guys. We even requested him to prepare Special Sangria with some fruits mix. He kindly made Sangria for us! It was damn soooo good. Hope anybody who are reading this review also try that. Highly recommend Chef Kari!!!! Thank you.
They seamlessly set up my dads celebration of life dinner party. It was an event of about 25-30 people. Their service was top notch, no tea or water went empty and the servers made sure to check in regularly to make sure we didn't need anything. The food was delicious, all the guests loved it. They really worked within our budget as well. A lot of the other people we originally found on this site, and others, were trying to scalp us for a very small event. Thank you to the staff for making the celebration of life really something to celebrate!
We booked Chef Khari and Sous Chef Sarah for a private event we held at our home. I was met with a punctual and respectful team. They created a beautiful 10 course small plate/tasting menu type service for 15 of us. It was well thought out and conceptualized while meeting all of our special requests/dietary needs. Half of the group was Vegan and in the past I have had a hard time finding unique dishes and plating for vegan food! Honestly a great experience and I would hire them again. We didn't book them through gig salad but wanted to make sure we left them a great review because we were referred by someone who booked them through here.
I just want to say that this catering team came through last minute for us. We had our caterer drop out 4 days before our wedding. We found Nouveau Touche Catering and contacted Chef Khari the owner/head chef. He was very helpful and sympathetic to our situation. Knowing that we obviously hadn't received our money back from the other caterer...he worked with us to find a solution that we could afford. In only a few days that arranged everything, put together a team to work our event, and brought us an amazing plated dinner service for 190 people. We were so impressed and blessed that we have actually hired them for another event! Five stars for this amazing and talented group of chefs!
Response from Nouveau Touche Catering and Private Chefs:
Thank you so much Travis! It was a pleasure working with you and your wife! We look forward to your next event!
Horrible Horrible Horrible. I booked him for a party and he harassed me for the payment all the way leading up to the event. We paid in full. He Showed up a day early and tried to blame me (even though the event date was clearly stated) and the day of the event he disconnected all three phone numbers and never showed up. Complete scam artist.
Response from Nouveau Touche Catering and Private Chefs:
I have had no issues with anyone that I have met through this site until working with you. You were very unprofessional and hard to work with. We spoke and you booked your event with us. It took me 3 and a half weeks to collect the deposit which I made clear to you was needed at the booking. Once we started to communicate you refused to give me a direct number or email to contact you through for almost a month. It took you 4-5 days sometimes to respond to me. Once I communicated with you by phone and email you kept stating that the date of the event was the 14th...not the 15th. So on the day of the 14th we talked 4-5 times by phone and I told you what time I would be there that day. You also informed me the day of the supposed event that the venue actually didn't have a kitchen. This negligence of the details on your part lead me to rent a kitchen space last minute. Then once I arrived you acted aloof to the fact that you had stated the day of the event was the 14th and not 15th. This was an out of town gig for me and you were aware of this. I'm not sure why you would be under the impression that me and 4 cooks/servers would come out of pocket for lodging, food and duplicate materials to complete your event the next day. I contacted your boss, the person who finally paid me directly for the event about a week before, and let him know that I would work out a partial refund and received no response from either of you. This was complete negligence on your part. If your boss would like to contact me back to work something out I am more than happy to still do so. I would not want him to lose so much money to to YOUR mistake.
