The dinner party

is our speciality

Whether it’s a romantic evening for two, a celebration for 50 or anything in between, we create memorable in-home dining experiences for you and your guests.

The process

is simple.

1. You Choose the Date & Time

The first step is to submit a booking request, letting us know your desired event date, time, location and guest count, as well as any food preferences or dietary restrictions.


2. We Build a Menu Together

From there, we’ll work together to build your perfect custom menu. Our sample menus are a wonderful starting point and showcase our specialties.

3. You Enjoy Your Dinner, We Do the Work

We’ll arrive with all the ingredients, spices and cooking equipment and handle all prep, cooking, serving and cleanup. We bring menus for your guests and can interact with them as much or as little as you like, and we promise to leave the kitchen as it was when we arrived.

What it’s like

to work with us

We focus on making client events enjoyable through the use of high-quality food, unique menus and a fun attitude. At Privato, we adapt our approach to match the event -- whether that means interacting with guests and sharing culinary tips, or staying more in the background as you engage with your honored guests. There's no pretense when working with our chefs. We want you and your guests to have a good time.

asked questions

How much do your services cost?

The price per person varies based on guest count and the menu we build together. However, dinners generally cost $85 per person on average. Please note that smaller parties have a higher cost per person than dinners with 10 guests or more. Additional services such as wine pairing and dinnerware rental will bring the cost per guest up.

Where is the food prepared and cooked?

Everything is prepped and cooked in your kitchen. We prepare food exclusively in-home, ensuring each course is as fresh as the last.

How should I prepare for my dinner with Privato?

There’s not much to do to prepare for our arrival. However, we do ask that your kitchen is clean when we arrive, all major appliances are in full working order, there is room for food in the refrigerator and countertops are relatively clear so that we have space to work. Our chefs bring all ingredients, cooking utensils, knives, cutting boards, etc. However, you should plan to have enough plates and serving utensils for your guests, unless you'd like to rent them from us for an additional fee.

Do I need to be home while you’re cooking?

That’s totally up to you! If you won’t be home when one of our chefs is scheduled to arrive, we’ll just need to arrange entry. Generally, we will arrive two hours before your dinner to ensure enough time for prep.

What’s the difference between hiring a private chef & hiring a caterer?

A private chef will prepare all dishes at your home, with fresh ingredients purchased just for you. Each of our private chefs only take on one job per day, and all courses are cooked and served immediately. A caterer on the other hand will typically be able to take on multiple jobs per day, as they prepare and cook all food in a central location and deliver it to you already made.

Do you offer meal prep?

At this time, we do not offer meal prep services. If you're looking for dinner party chefs, we're the ones to call!
