Jamie and staff is truly great at what they do. They went above and beyond and dealt with all the planning for the day of. They were hardly seen unless it was necessary. Made the guests feel comfortable and welcome. The praise we received from guests and family was a resounding success. We are forever grateful for all the memories created because of the staff’s professionalism, skill, and attention to detail to really make our day special.Sent on 11/11/2019

We hired Simply Gourmet for our daughter's wedding, and they were Simply Amazing! At the tasting we met Becky and decided we also needed her to be the wedding coordinator. Becky worked with us to create a very elegant event and delicious meal within our budget. She had great ideas and confidence that put our minds at ease. She helped us to have a plan A, B, and C for weather, and thank goodness because we ended up needing to use plan B. Jamie also helped coordinate the ceremony at the church, and her quick thinking saved the day when we forgot a boutonniere for the singer, she quickly fashioned one out of left over flowers! When we arrived at the venue, for pictures, we were greeted by Becky and staff with drinks and yummy appetizers. Our guests were inside having a great time and being well taken care of, they commented that the bar tenders remembered their drinks and had them ready as they approached. The dining service was impeccable. Becky had the venue looking gorgeous, a floor plan that kept the guests engaged and having fun, the vendors coordinated with a timeline, a calm confidence, and a staff that was there to please. Simply Gourmet and Becky exceeded our expectations with the food and service!Sent on 11/22/2019

Simply Gourmet & Becky were absolutely incredible! We used them for a Friday night "welcome party" and our wedding and both events were incredible. The food tasted exactly like it did at the tasting and the cheese board/table they did for the Friday night cocktail party was beyond! I got so many compliments on the wedding food and everything was hot & as expected. We chose the day-of wedding planner service and it was worth every penny. Becky made everything seem so easy and calm and kept the night moving. To me, everything went off without a hitch (and if it didn't, Becky did an INCREDIBLE job of making me feel calm). Becky was great at communicating and her & her team did an excellent job of executing our vision. We had a lot of personal touches (handmade by my mother) and Becky & her team made sure they were placed & ready to go at the venue. She did an excellent job managing our other vendors as well. I cannot recommend Simply Gourmet & Becky enough!Sent on 12/08/2019

"My name is Jam, CEO of The Jam Band, and I had the pleasure working along side Becky and her staff at Simply Gourmet Catering on a wedding at The Ringling Museum in Sarasota. From my initial interaction with Becky, to the end of the event, she was a pleasure to work with. Becky catered to the band's needs and did so with ease even though she was consumed with keeping the bride happy and running the event smoothly. The food was delicious and the overall presentation was spot on. I was super impressed with her and her staff as she remained calm throughout and did not micromanage. You rarely run into event planners who can run an event as gracefully as she did. I highly recommend Simply Gourmet for all of your special occasions."
Simply Gourmet is one of our absolute favorite caterers to work with at EK Event Design. Food quality is always on point and the staff never fails in having impeccable service! They are super attentive to the client and other vendors as well, their "teamwork" mentality is evident in each event we have seen them do!
We love working with Becky and her team @ Simply Gourmet - Very experience professionals. Every event we do with them is always guaranteed to be of highest quality!
