A few weeks ago my husband and I gave a home murder mystery party which required us to be hands on during the evening. We decided to have someone prepare and serve the dinner so we could participate as our characters and be apart of all the fun. We were recommended to Martha from DINE ON IN! and she was amazing! She helped me plan the menu and actually came by our house to make sure she knew the layout and what was needed to make the food end of the party go smoothly. From gorgeous, tasty canapes during our cocktail hour, to a delicious braised short ribs main course, followed by yummy individual fruit crisps. The food was such a hit! I think Martha was as excited about the party as we were, her enthusiasm and professionalism was so appreciated. I would highly recommend her, I’d say treat you and your guests for for your next event!
Dine On In has been fabulous for my friends and family where I celebrated my birthday, learned to create delicious food, and the lovely chef made home cooked meals. We have celebrated my birthday brunch at Dine On In with Martha, as our wonderful chef, while enjoying South American cuisine. On another occasion we learned to make chimichurri while overlooking the beautiful downtown San Diego skyline in the evening enjoying wine and spending time with my girls. The lovely chef has come to my home to make healthy home cooked meals to enjoy for a week. Thank you Dine On In!!! I highly recommend you to my family and friends.

Martha puts her unique creativity into everything she makes. Her dishes taste as good as the presentation. I love that she’s not afraid to mix flavors that one would not expect and pulls it off deliciously. She’s definitely the one I call when hosting an event. Her dishes are always a success with my company.
I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying a light and delicious meal prepared by Ms. Martha Puentes of DINE ON IN!. My friends and I were so impressed with not only the savory flavors of food but the simplicity of the process as she explained dish by dish on how to replicate at home. The presentation was clean and simple making it very easy to see what we were enjoying. Definitely, will have DINE ON IN! cook for me in the future!
Amazing food, beautifully displayed excellent service. All her suggestion of dishes has been great crowd pleaser. Always fresh ingredients and delicious. She goes above and beyond to please her customers. I would definitely recommend her services for any occasion catering
Martha has created several culinary masterpieces for me for private and public events. She’s professional and has a passion for cooking that is unparalleled. She has a knack for making even the most ordinary dishes into a gourmet meal! You are guaranteed greatness when she cooks for you. No matter what your need is, healthy and light, heavier and filing, she’s the chef to call!
Martha is a magnificent chef! I enjoy the way she can take anything she has in her refrigerator and makes it gourmet! Someone that can do this has a flair for cooking and will be great any place she goes! I have always enjoyed what she makes for me and as a “picky eater” this is always hard to do but she had made me a believer!
