“ More members ratings... Christopher (+1) Sean has outdone himself again! Christena and I had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The Scallops and Cuttlefish were my personal favorites and the Hamachi was amazing. Great work.- Dr. Charlyn Belluzzo (+1)-- The diversity of this "meet up" group is incredibly stimulating. The food and wine were wonderful, but the people are out of this world. We learned so much and experienced so many things vicariously through the eyes of the guests attending. Thanks Sean and Stephanie! - Maureen Keating-- Wonderful food, nice people and a warm environment. Sean's "iron chef" approach to preparing unique foods several ways is informative and interesting. - yvonne lerch (+1)-- the shrimp was very clean and flavorful! the accompanying salsa was wonderful too....but that reduction sauce...wow! fabulous! it was a fun and creative way to explore fancy shrimp.- Dawn-- Gracious hosts, friendly people and delicious cheese! Thank you. ”

“ Right on the spot for the circumstances. As a passionate chef myself, informally trained at the side of my grandmother and mother, then making magic in the kitchen with imagination, I can appreciate how hard it can be to get things out timely to all the tables set up for the 45+ people there. While all was cooked fresh, though in several cycles, as it's a personal residence and not a larger or professional kitchen. I would have preferred the lobster tail a bit less well-done, and heard that the beef used in the Shish kabob was chuck -- sirloin would be my preference. Since our table was the last served, perhaps the vegetables from the kabob were already distributed, as my serving could have been enhanced with more roasted vegetable. My wife noticed a few other things -- some berries in the dessert had some mold, for one. An additional starch or carbohydrate side dish to help absorb wine would have been nice, as well as a bar which was more than wine & bubbly. ”
