Never Had a Better Meal at an Event

I'm not exaggerting when I say all my wedding guests shared they had the best wedding meal at my big day. Mattison's blew it out of the park. It was a total experience.

From passed creative appetizers and stunning cheese display to perfectly executed salads/entrees, and overflowing dessert table, each course was devoured. And you can't forget the tastiest late night taco bar!! Most importantly, Each person on their team was so professional, kind and welcoming. We even had one of the staff leaders personally cater/care for my husband and I throughout the evening to ensure we ate on our wedding evening. Truly exceptional catering company.

I also want to personally thank Kourtney, who worked with us the whole way. She planned the best tasting menu the year prior, dealt with multiple date changes due to Covid, patiently handled my indecisiveness on the final menu, welcomed personalizations to the menu, and made seating chart/assignment details so easy. She is hyper-responsive and knows how to work so well with other vendors. Not to mention, she is just fun :)

Thank you a million, Mattison's!!

Amazing Food & Customer Service!

I had the pleasure of working with Kourtney, she was the first vendor I connected with when planning for my wedding. I found her to be very kind, professional, detail-oriented, and extremely helpful. Her recommendations were excellent, and her honesty was appreciated. The fact that she understood my needs, offered feedback, and always had a get-it-done attitude, was greatly appreciated. Mattison's is extremely lucky to have her.

Not only was Kourtney a joy to work with, but Mattison's food was amazing, too! During our tasting, we were blown away by how good the food was (appetizers, salad, entrees, sides, you name it). We couldn't stop talking about how excited we were to eat such a wonderful meal. At the wedding, it was no different, everything was just as great as we remembered! The wait staff and bartenders were extremely kind and willing to make sure my husband and I, as well as our families and guests, were taken care of. We highly recommend them!

To relive our wonderful memories, my husband and I look forward to visiting Mattison's again soon.

If you want great customer service, amazing food, and a wonderful overall service experience, look no further!

Fantastic quality service and food, from beginning to end!

My husband and I are so glad we had Mattison's cater our wedding! Kourtney Culler was absolutely fantastic to work with. She did a wonderful job curating a creative menu, and then took great care of us (along with our parents) during our tasting. She made adjustments based on feedback extremely well, and even inquired about some off-menu additions. The food was not only delicious and filling at our tasting, but the same was more than true at the wedding. Our guests were more than satisfied by the end of dinner (many too full for dessert and the late night snack!). In addition to the great food, the service was equally commendable. We all felt so well attended. As a busy bride and groom, they did a fantastic job of going above and beyond to make sure any of our dining needs were met. We highly recommend Mattison's catering!
