    Amazing Experience During Covid

    It's a weird time to plan a wedding, and Moriah & Michael's took away so much of the stress of it all. I helped my sister-in-law organize her small, backyard wedding and it was a cinch with CBM. Food was amazing, everybody on staff was so friendly and nice and helpful, and their Covid precautions were really well thought out. Highly, highly, highly recommend.

    Truly the best!!!

    There are no words that can describe how happy I am that we chose to work with CBM for our wedding. Aside from the fact that the food was phenomenal, the quality of service, professionalism, and accessibility leading up to and on our wedding night far exceeded all of our expectations. Michele and her team truly thought through every detail. When our guest count doubled just a couple of weeks before the wedding (thank you Covid Vaccine!), Michele remained completely calm and executed everything flawlessly. They say brides don't eat on their wedding nights, but after my tasting I knew I had to eat everything because it was SO delicious!!!

    Sophia,
    Thank you for the awesome review. We are thrilled that we exceeded your expectations. You looked beautiful on your wedding day, and with your amazing smile and engaging, warm personality, you are beautiful every day (must be your amazing family 😉). Good luck to both of you in your marriage!!

    Best food you could ask for!

    I don’t even know where to begin! The best compliment comes from one of our guests that had 8 weddings this year and he could not stop raving about the food at the wedding. I have many food allergies and the chef from Michael’s was able to make me a custom plate that was fresh and fit my needs. I was able to enjoy a full tasteful meal at my wedding, not just a plate of meat and bland potato. They made me a special first course of a sushi donut. I have never craved sushi until experiencing the brilliance is the chef through Michael’s. Not only was our meal delicious they made an amazing taco bar for a midnight snack. Our guests were shocked and incredibly pleased by the experience and the meal. They loved that the entire meal was made to go so they could bring it back to the hotel. Several people have already asked me for the name of the company who catered the meals and I excitedly tell them Catering by Michael’s
