Food you'll be talking about for YEARS!
We feel so lucky to have been able to use the services of Michaels on East for our wedding at Selby Gardens. Amy Allen was our venue coordinator and she was absolutely amazing to work with! She knew the grounds very well and was able to provide us with guidance and expertise to help us make decisions during our wedding.Sent on 11/11/2019
The food was unreal! First, we could not hear enough compliments from guests about the passed hour dourves – we were able to try some at our wedding and they were so delicious. Our guests also loved the salad and the main course. Some of our guests referred to the food as “the best wedding food they’ve ever had,” and we had guests travel in from all over: Connecticut, Boston, New York, Texas, California, Arizona, and Washington D.C.
Michaels on East not only delivers the best quality food, but the drinks, the service and the experience was impeccable. We highly recommend working with Michaels on East for your wedding or any event! You can trust them to deliver and to give your guests and you the best experience.

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.Sent on 01/19/2021

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.Sent on 10/16/2020
