    Simply Amazing

    MOE was awesome and my wedding day was executed to perfection. Margaux and Amy were absolutely amazing and very helpful. There was no question unanswered and they were very helpful and responsive. The food itself was perfection and every guest complimented us on how amazing everything was. Due to the heat we cut our photos a little short and decided to finish up at twilight when it was a bit cooler. This moved the timeline for dinner up a little, MOE made the adjustment with no problem or attitude and made it happen. Simply amazing!!

    Delicious wedding

    Michaels on East has an amazing reputation in the area. The food was phenomenal from what I was able to eat during my wedding and all the guest raved about the food, drinks, service. They are professional and a well oiled machine timely and officiant.

    Best Food and Service!

    Many wedding guests complimented Michael's on East for their delightful and delicious food. Each course was meticulous and appetizing including the exquisite works of art on the Dessert Bar. We received first-class service from the wait staff.

    Although we considered other venues, when Amy gave us the grand tour at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, we were sold! Amy Allen, Executive Director of Events and Catering Sales was exceptional, knowledgeable and answered every question with additional information to assist with our decisions.

    Amy went above and beyond even meeting us at the Michael's on East restaurant for the taste testing. Amy recommended experienced vendors. We felt confident our special event would be handled with class and in a professional manner. We appreciate Amy and the Michael's on East team for our perfect wedding!
