Chef Adair Reviews
Here are just a few of the reviews and comments from our customers:
8/12/2016 | Rosanne D. from Santa Rosa, CA
Chef Adair was part of the expert team that made my intimate winery wedding the stuff of dreams.
From the minute we hired him, he was professional, fun, committed, and attentive to every detail. Chef Adair was by our side as we selected wines for the 6-course meal we had planned for our guests--which was such a fun experience and gave him the opportunity to get to know us and incorporate our personality as a couple into the dining experience we wanted to create for our guests.
My husband is a country boy and avid hunter, while I am a Paris-loving City girl. Chef Adair adeptly created a gorgeous menu that reflected both of our tastes--he also sourced game and figs from our ranch to make the experience even more personal. It was a lovely homage to where we call home and was the kind of touch that very few accept the challenge to do. The end result was a beautiful menu that was both interesting and luxurious.
It was also fantastic that with each course, he would take a moment to come out and speak to our guests about the course, the thought and inspiration behind it, and tasting notes. Our guests absolutely fell in love with him.
It is no exaggeration to say that Chef Adair was instrumental in making our wedding dinner magical. Our 14 guests still talk about that night and remark on how amazing the meal was--which is rare when it comes to your typical wedding dinner that consists of rubbery chicken and tired, uninspired menus.
If you love food and want to create an unforgettable dining experience for your intimate wedding or dinner party, hands down, Chef Adair is your man!

"When looking for private chefs, Sonoma county offers a wide variety of choices. I can say without reservation, that Chef Adair represents the best of the best." — Jeremy C.
“Chef Adair, we all thank you for the making our trip to Napa unforgettable!”
— Lisa R.
"Chef Adair is incredible! I hired him and his team for a private 5-course tasting dinner for 13 people and every course was better than the next! We were blown away with the flavors, the combination of ingredients - from beginning to end and down to every last detail, it was the perfect evening.
We barely knew he was there yet when we all wanted to chat and see what they were up to in the kitchen, he was more than happy to show us the ropes and teach us a bit about what he was doing. He's super cool, personable and beyond professional.
If you want an amazing meal to go with your fabulous evening, then hire Chef Adair. You will NOT be disappointed. "
— Jordan P.
"Chef Adair is one of the best chefs we have had the pleasure of cooking for us! Our family spent a week in the wine country eating at some of the best restaurants in the area because we are foodies. Then we had Chef Adair cook for us at our vacation home on the last night of our trip, and it was by far the best dinner we had. His plates were creative, well executed, beautiful and best of all had an amazing combination of flavors. He used the freshest ingredients with delicious accompaniments grown in his own garden. To top it all off he is personable and showed us great techniques in cooking. We will invite Chef Adair to cook for us again and greatly appreciated the excellent service from his staff who joined him." — Christine Dwiggins
"I just wanted to thank you one more time for that wonderful dinner on the 22nd. You really made our anniversary & vow renewal so memorable and I can't thank you enough. The food was fantastic, hands down the best meal I've had. And I can't imagine having a better one! Everything was perfect and everyone truly enjoyed the dinner. You and your crew did a fabulous job. If we make it back out to Sonoma, we will definitely be giving you a call to do another dinner for us. Thank you!!!!" — Jenny Cook
"I can't remember when I've enjoyed a party as much, which is really challenging when you are the host. You took care of every detail, added more than we even anticipated, created heavenly food, and interacted beautifully with our guests. And then, when I thought that the evening could not get more magical, you offered an incredibly generous donation to Teach with Africa. WOW! We (the Schlenoff-Kowal families) look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship." — Margie Schlenoff
"As a sommelier, it is rare to have the pleasure of working with a chef who enjoys the dialogue of creating perfect wine pairings as much as Chef Adair. Each dish was creative, delicious and showed great sensitivity to the paired wines. Additionally, he was able to seamlessly adjust to some last minute requests from the guests, tailoring the experience perfectly to their needs." —Sean Meyer – Estate Sommelier, Cardinale
"Better than Cyrus and twice the fun!" — Bob & Kris

"Chef Adair and his team catered my husband's 50th Birthday party over Memorial Day weekend in Santa Rosa. And did they go above and beyond to make the event memorable. It was an outdoor event and the weather turned unexpectedly to a heavy rain just hours before the guests were to arrive. The crew came together and helped me assemble tents and the chef loaned me his tent. The staff solved so many problems that night with creativity and great smiles. The food was fabulous and Chef Adair was so easy to work with and responsive to special requests. He responded quickly when I first contacted him and impressed me with his love of food and local sourcing of his ingredients. An incredibly memorable evening thanks to Chef Adair and his team." — Darren P., San Francisco, CA
