Absolutely incredible meal and experience to celebrate a special birthday dinner. Chef Christian and Flor are professional, so talented, and provided excellent service from time of booking throughout the entire evening. I can't wait to find another reason to hire them again!
Chef Christian was a phenomenal chef and brought poise and a calming spirit to our event. Each event is not without hiccups in our business and Chef took it all in stride and offered his perspective and accommodated our changes in set up so seamlessly that it was not noticed by any of our guests. The traditional Moroccan food was amazing and the guests were thrilled with the overall Moroccan experience. Chef provided Rose Water and Tea, at the beginning and end of the event, respectively, and it was these true-to-form details that made the entire event a true success. We look forward to working with Chef and his amazing staff, again.
When looking for someone to cater your wedding, it can be a bit stressful. Chef graze and his assistant did a marvelous job cooking for our intimate wedding party brunch. My personal favorite was the chocolate waffles, but everything was fresh and delicious. They both really went above and beyond. I asked for some changes in the menu and Chef graze happily worked with us to cater to our needs. You will be in great hands.
Absolutely phenomenal, no other words can describe the exquisite flavors and presentation!!
Christian Graze created a gracious evening of delicious food. Christian is charming, responsive to questions prior to the event, prompt and left the kitchen in perfect order. Hosting a dinner created by Christian is a treat.
From beginning to end, chef Christian made potential chaos into a smooth and worry free zone. The food was fantastic and beautifully presented, and his staff was attentive and went above and beyond.
