    Great service and amazing food!

    We worked with the Michaels On East team for our October 2020 Selby Gardens wedding. Their team was easy to work with, extremely detailed and easy to get ahold of. MOE handled all rentals and event set up for ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception, as well as all beverages, appetizers and dinner. Our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was and how good the drinks were. I especially appreciated the attention the staff paid to the bride and groom over the course of the reception. We never needed to ask for anything, and they kept our glasses full. MOE is a reputable fine dining restaurant, and their event experience is precisely the same. We highly recommend Michael’s On East catering.

    Best wedding food

    MOE catered my 10/10/2020 wedding and everyone raved over the food. Several guests stated it was the best wedding food they ever had! Agreed! MOE was incredibly accommodating with rentals as well. The servers were professional and attentive. Thank you for making my wedding so beautiful.
