    Best caterer ever! We had them cater a welcome reception for 80 and wedding reception for 100 and everything was absolutely perfect and delicious. Staff was warm, kind, and so so helpful at both events. We got so many compliments from guests regarding the food. Bar service was excellent too! They made our wedding night perfect!

    I cannot say enough good things about the stellar service we received from Phil and his staff at Michael's on East. It may be unnerving to have an exclusive caterer at the venue one chooses, but MOE delivers! It is clear that they wish to provide their clients with the best experience possible; they are not resting on their laurels simply because they have an exclusive catering contract.

    During the planning stages, Phil, Ngoc, and Lya were always readily available by email and phone. They accommodated my schedule with last minute meetings and tastings. I wanted to serve a certain cuisine that wasn't on the MOE catering menu and Phil made it happen. MOE also offers rental services for chairs, tableware, etc, which greatly simplified the entire wedding planning process. Due to our entirely outdoor venue potentially being impacted by a tropical storm/hurricane, we made the decision to change our venue only two days before the wedding. MOE never missed a beat! Phil took care of everything. At the reception, all the staff were professional, attentive, and warm. We had many comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the food, which we also found to be excellent. Overall, a truly excellent experience with MOE and I give them my sincere thanks for helping to make our wedding day fun, stress-free, and as beautiful as I could have imagined!
