Testimonials

I hired chef Ray for a private dinner at my home and he was amazing. We had a 4 course meal for picky 12 people. And we all agreed the food was delicious! Chef ray puts a unique spin on every dish. We all loved it. And we even had extras to take home. What an amazing experience. We will definitely be booking him for all our events.

Chef Ray was amazing! I booked him for the last night of my bachelorette and it fully exceeded my expectations. He was very communicative throughout the entire process and made sure any food restrictions were met. Each dish was absolutely delicious and the presentation was stunning. He went above and beyond and brought beautiful plates, silverware, napkins, and even arranged floral bouquets for the table. Him and his assistant did an excellent job and I would hire him to be my private chef back at home in DC if I could.

Chef Ray was an absolute gem for my cousin’s bachlorette party! Not only did he whip up incredible food, he also brought great energy that matched our excitement. His positive vibes elevated our celebration, making it an unforgettable night with delicious food and fun memories!

We booked Chef Ray for the second time for my bachelorette. He delivered yet again! I booked him for my friend’s bach last year where we did a brunch and this time booked him for dinner. He and his two assistants prepared a 5 course meal for 14 people, all prepped and cooked on site, beautifully plated and served. I continue to be amazed at the level of professionalism and quality of food for the price. He’s so professional, easy to book and communicate with, and is a fun time on top of it. To my absolute delight one of his assistants was someone my fiancé and I LOVE from last season’s Hell’s Kitchen, so let that also speak to the level of quality you get when you book Chef Ray. This will not be our last booking! Can’t wait for the next!

Where do I begin? Chef Ray provided a selection of menus according to our wishes. Once we made our decision, he was flexible and accommodating. Chef Ray was professional and available with any of our questions and concerns. The three course menu he put together was amazing. The presentation was on point and each dish was extraordinarily tasteful. We couldn’t get enough of each dish. So much to choose from and made sure we wanted to try each one. It wasn’t just the dish, but how it was prepared and the extra garnishes that made it complete. Tasteful and plentiful. I wish I can submit pics of the set up to display how delightful it all came together.

We can honestly say CHEF RAY did not disappoint.

Looking forward to working with him again.

Raymond and I spent months curating the perfect menu for a private dinner experience at my bachelorette party. From the very first second that I booked him, to the very last second that he walked out the door… He was kind, thoughtful, professional, and FUN! He came prepared with all of his cooking and serving materials, while of course preparing a delicious, and homemade, four-course meal. I am still dreaming of the prickly pear margaritas, chips and guacamole, ropa vieja arepas, and skirt steak tacos. I could go on and on, but you NEED to book him for your next event (I know I will)!

“I wanted to shout out a private chef I booked for my friends bach this past weekend! I initially looked into the DJ Chef, but didn’t like that there was no real menu, especially for the price. I wanted an affordable but classy private brunch experience and reached out to a few. We booked chef Ray McNeal, and he was great! He was very communicative the two weeks leading up about any menu tweaks he recommended, any supplies he needed, etc. He was on time, super professional, cleaned up after himself, etc. We didn’t do a drink package with him as we were bringing our own booze but knowing that we would still be drinking mimosas he made us a delicious signature drink (Lavender Lemonade Mimosa). The food was SO good. We did a three-course brunch, that was all prepared on site which really made it a whole day experience, which we loved. We ate a lot, slowly over 3 hours or so, so we were able to really appreciate and enjoy each course. We had two gluten-free girls, and he took great care and attention to preparing those and displaying them well, which I really loved. They loved their food! He was honest about crepes not being great GF so he prepared them waffles instead, which all of us wound up eating. We were in CT, but he also travels out east and to PA. I will definitely be booking him for mine next year!
