Ian's Recent Reviews

Ian Woodcock
Ian was a consummate professional from the start. He emailed and phoned me prior to the dinner to ensure everything was as I wanted it. Ian was punctual and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him, which certainly took all the pressure off me. This was the first of my parties that I have actually been able to relax and enjoy. He presented us with a fabulous dinner and the guests are still raving about it. He came with all the equipment he required, and left the kitchen in an amazingly clean state. I would highly recommend Ian Woodcock for your next dinner party. Could not fault him. Thanks so much Ian. Kind regards - Roslyn Purcell

Sally Smith (QLD)

Ian Woodcock
Ian contacted me prior to the evening to touch base with arrival time. He was very accommodating and professional on the evening, even offering to cook our nibbles of scallops for our guests. His food was delicious, well presented and the kitchen was spotless on his departure. He additionally followed up with a text message thanking me for the evening. I could not fault Ian as a Chef or At Your Table for their communication and efficiency. A fabulous dinner party to celebrate my husband's 50th. We were so relaxed as hosts and our guests were very impressed.

Chef Frederick is very well versed in Classic French venues such as Belgium’s Romeyer and the 3 Michelin star La Pergola. He also became the Head Chef at the 3-Michelin star Le Bel Ombra in 1996 before taking the reins at the 3-Michelin star La Place as the Head Chef a couple of years later. In 2000, Frederick had the honour of being the Personal Chef to the French Consul-General in Monte Carlo where he served with distinction.

It’s pretty safe to say Fredrick can cook… This level of luxury in the form of a personal chef is something to behold.

Frederick Marechal
Wow, what a night! Chef Frederick was absolutely amazing. Really pleasant to have in our home and the food was exceptional. Can't wait to do it again.

Hayley Bowen (QLD)

Frederick Marechal
The food couldn’t be faulted.

Jacquelyn (QLD)

Frederick Marechal
We had a chef and a waiter, Frederick and Rudy. However, Rudy was not just any waiter, he was definitely a fully fledged maitre d' and ran the evening with such finesse and smoothness that we felt we were in a 5 star restaurant. Frederick created such fine food it was absolute heaven to indulge and was 5 star as well! My husband was exceedingly grateful that Frederick was aware that he was in somebody's home and not on TV! They arrived on time, went about their business in a very professional manner, played the evening by ear and gave us the ultimate fine dining experience! The two of them also new each other's nuances and worked together like a well oiled machine. Both deserve such accolades and we received nothing but compliments about the experience. We'll done guys

Tanja Nixdorf
The offered menus were all excellent and our selected menu surpassed expectations. We had a celebration dinner with a group of 14 and made adjustments to the menu that were readily agreed to and implemented by the team. The night went smoothly and we all just sat and enjoyed the meal and conversation without having to leave the table or worry about timing or serving drinks. A wonderful and special night with friends all made possible by Tanja and her team

Grant Titman (QLD)

Tanja Nixdorf
Was a very good experience and having done "at your table" 3 times now, Tanja was the best chef so far. Her server was also much better then the last two servers I have had.

Marcus (QLD)

Tanja Nixdorf
We were so happy with our evening, poor Tanja there were a few kitchen malfunctions, due to it being very new, and one of my pots not being compatible with the induction (even though it was sold as induction) anyway I digress....Tanja somehow overcame the difficulties and served us a beautiful meal, our guests were so impressed. Alex and Levi, the waiters that came with Tanja were a delight and nothing was too much trouble. Five stars all the way from us.

From the moment Amanda came into our home we knew we were in for an extra special treat.

Please pass on my thanks to Daniella and Anna – (Wait staff) they continually walked around ensuring everyone was looked after and had a drink as well as food service and clean up. I will have no hesitation in rebooking William for any future event. Thank you so much.

Eddie Basich
A surprise 40th birthday dinner for my husband by Chef Eddie was the perfect gift and experience. He made us feel comfortable by chatting with us but also allowing us to dine privately too. Amazing food for my big foodie of a husband and cleaned up everything so we got to relax and enjoy our wine. And a special mention to our newborn baby boy who slept and let us have a fine dining experience. So so good and have recommended it to so many people already.

Sheryn Amato (VIC)

Lorenzo Depetris
We had a great experience with At Your Table. Chef Lorenzo was very accomodating with his proposed menu and the food was delicious. On the day we were able to relax and enjoy time with family and great food rather than having to cook and clean up. Highly recommend At Your Table if you are looking to hold an event and need a chef!

Sacha Alexander (NSW)

Amanda Lennon
Amanda was delightful to have in our home. We attended a previous function where she was the chef and asked her to chef our own on this occasion. Cannot sing her praises enough. The food was divine (again) and our night would not have been as special without her.
