  • Highly Recommend Him For Future Parties

    Sherri Ratoosh Glombicki
    Chef Smirnov did an excellent job preparing Sunday morning brunch in my home on several occasions for 30- 50 people. His omelets are delicious, and his fruit carvings beautiful. Everything was wonderful from the mimosas to the chicken salad. He and his staff work independently, and don’t need supervision, so the hosts can entertain and enjoy their own parties. They do everything from set up, to serving, and complete clean up.

  • Impossible To Have A Dinner Party Without

    Judy and Marc Herzstein
    Vladimir is passionate about his work and his service. He is anxious to establish himself as a top chef in Houston. He listens to your ideas and has many suggestions. He won't let you do the wrong thing. He is respectful, his uniform is clean and crisp, and his staff are professional. He can follow your grandmother's recipe or introduce his own. He remembers how you like things prepared, what you like to drink, and who can't eat certain foods. He will stay behind the scenes if you want or let the guests watch as he creates the dinner. He will not leave until he knows you are satisfied. I find it impossible to have a dinner party without him!

  • I won't go anywhere else!

    Terri Caress
    After my daughter's Bat Mitzvah, I knew that the only caterer I would use for my son's Bar Mitzvah would be Chef Smirnov. Not only is the food unbelievably delicious, the professionalism and helpfulness of Vladimir and his staff went above and beyond expectations. The delicious food that was prepared for my son's Shabbat dinner, Bar Mitzvah luncheon as well as the Bar Mitzvah party were presented beautifully. His fruit carvings and ice sculptures are beautiful pieces of art! I also used Ksenyia Smirnov for my flower arrangements.

  • The Ultimate Professional

    Beth Kraus Johnstone
    The Chef was so easy to work with and professional for many holiday parties at our condo... And when I needed him for my father's shiva and couldn't even tell him how many people would be coming or what I wanted to serve my guests he thought for me and created a delicious menu to celebrate my father's life...

  • Bar Mitzvah Luncheon

    Dan and Helen Galor
    The buffet set up was beautiful as always and we received many compliments on the incredible food. I think the best thing about having Chef Smirnov cater for us was the peace of mind we felt.

    We were glad to have Chef Smimov come to the Culinary Academy of Austin as a guest chef. He was a very patient and informative instructor. With his guidance and detailed explanation, they picked up the techniques fairly quickly and produced beautiful work.

  • Excellent Service

    Dick Brooks
    The Chef and Staff arrived well before our event. They all understood their responsibilities and provided excellent service and delicious food in a most professional manner. When the last guest left, the kitchen and service area were cleaned and even the trash was taken out!

  • Absolutely Wonderful and Stress-Free Experience!

    Candace Sherman
    When I sent Chef Smirnov an email to let him know I would be needing his services again, he called me just minutes later to congratulate me on our marriage! I told my husband- that this was precisely why we HAD to use Chef Smirnov - his food is excellent and he is professional and so easy to work with! When I met with Chef Smirnov, he made me feel completely at ease. His company offers full services, he could take care of the linens, flatware, china, flowers, and anything else I would possibly need. What I really liked about him was that he focused on offering me a wide range of options while being considerate of budget concerns. I am still receiving phone calls and emails about how wonderful the food was! In addition to the food being PERFECT. Chef Smirnov's staff is amazing!

  • Dinner Party for International Guests

    Patti Gallagher
    My husband and I are very pleased with our experience with Chef Smirnov. The food was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. Chef Vladi helped me plan the menu and on the evening of the event, he and his assistant, Myra, took charge so that my husband and I could enjoy our guests. They were certainly instrumental in the success of our dinner party. We look forward to working with Chef Smirnov again!

  • Catering for Passover

    Steve Robbins
    Had eight people at my home for the first Passover since my wife passed away and had it catered to relieve pressure on rest of family. Menu selection offered great variety and the quantity of food provided was more than sufficient. I found the cost to be most reasonable.
