    michael event catering was amazing for my wife's surprise party. the food was excellent, and the service was out of this world. each of the servers took the time to address the people at my party individually and i really appreciate that. I just wish i could give them 20 stars because they were that good. Michael Event Catering thank you for your service. i will definitely use your services again.

    How lucky was I when Michaels Event Catering answered my request for my son's Engagement cocktail party! The fact that he was always available and answered all my questions quickly and efficiently made me confident that I would be satisfied. Not only was he on time and everything was as requested but the food was over the top delicious!!! The staff was courteous and professional and everyone was soon asking for his brochures!! I can't suggest anything that could have been improved on --I will definitely use Michaels Event Catering in the future!!

    Mike was a pleasure to do business with. He was incredibly responsive, experienced and helpful throughout the course of planning our wedding. We were on a strict budget and he helped us get the most for our money - he beat out everyone else we talked to with regard to price and what was included for the money. Mike was eager to make things as easy as possible for us and we had no worries on our big day. His staff was friendly, constantly smiling and helpful. The food was delicious and many guests commented on that. I will contact Mike next time I have a catering need, without a doubt.

    Thanks to Michael's Event Catering our wedding was made
    memorable by the delicious food and wonderful service he provided! The food display was beautiful from the fruit carvings to the bread display. The service provided by the waiters and waitresses was fit for a king and queen. I cannot recall how many times I was asked if I needed anything but I do remember how many times I had to ask for something which was zero!
    I couldn't believe how professional and friendly the entire staff was to all of our guests.
    Our wedding unfortunately fell on the same day as Hurricane Irene. From the week before up to the night of we had many of our other professional services try to cancel on us such as our DJ and hair and make up artist but Michael was the one service that didn't try to falter on us! He remained poised and confident throughout the whole ordeal and his organization helped our guests feel comfortable and forget what was happening outside! I praise him for this since the caterer is really the heart of the wedding.
    He went above and beyond all of our expectations and made our wedding a beautiful, organized, and delicious one! I've been recommending him to everyone ever since. High quality service and food with a price that cannot be beat!

    Our Plated Service Wedding:
    Michael's Event Catering is nothing short of amazing!!!
    We planned our wedding with Chef Michael and couldn't have been more pleased.
    He shows a true passion for what he does and it showed in every detail.
    Chef was a joy to work with and eased our stresses every step of the way.
    During the planning of the event he always made himself available and his
    guidance was not only accurate but well presented.
    He came highly recommendedby the location we held our wedding
    and we can see why. His level of professionalism was only out matched
    by the quality food served. His service team was gracious and
    at the same time extremely kind and friendly.
    We are still receiving compliments regarding the food and service.
    Our budget wasn't the greatest but yet he was able to personalize
    a package for us that allowed for us to get everything we wanted and more.
    We would not hesitate and have already recommended
    Michael's Event Catering to our friends and family.
    We will use his services every chance we get. Thank you Chef!!!

    My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Michael at Michaelís Event Catering for our wedding in October 2012. From the first day I contacted Michael, he was incredibly communicative and easy to work with. He was very willing to work with our budget, and went above and beyond with suggestions to help make our big day nicer for our guests and easier for us. Even though we were planning our wedding from out of state, the catering service was planned and implemented with grace and ease. From random nervous-bride questions to last-minute requests to day-of unplanned issues, Michael made it all happen for us. I even got a day-before-the-wedding pep talk from him when I began to wonder if it everything would work out as planned!
    I have never been to a wedding where I heard so many people comment on the charming wait/bar staff and the wonderful food. Even now, months later, I am getting compliments on the delicious meal that was served. Again, Michael and his staff went above and beyond to make my wedding day beautiful and memorable, and I didnít have to worry about a thing. A million thanks to Michaelís Event Catering, for a job so incredibly well-done.
