We loved working with Mike!! He is one of the nicest guys! And his food is delicious!! We went with Argentina Style Flank Steak served with chimichurri sauce and Cilantro Lime Chicken for our 130 guests. Mike also had a kids menu for the kiddos at our wedding -- chicken nuggets and mac and cheese. Our guests were so complimentary of our selections and as I walked around taking photos, I noticed that a few extra vegetarian plates had also been served to guests who I didn't realize were vegetarians. Mike -- as always -- had planned ahead and was ready for anything. I highly recommend Mike and Simply Elegant Catering.Sent on 12/16/2016

Mike and his team did an incredible job with the catering for our wedding. He was easy to work with and quickly incorporated our requests / changes following our tasting.Sent on 03/08/2016
We had loved our tasting but we're curious to see how it might be different for 165 guests: Our guests raved about the food, and we definitely had some tough customers. Our guests loved how moist the salmon was, the variety of the appetizers and the great sauces for the tri tip. Mike was able to provide the food In a family style format which we really wanted and turned out great.
Mike was wonderful to work with and definitely surpassed our expectations.
