Wedding Caterer

Where do I begin?! I just got married 5 days ago and used Simply Gourmet as our caterer and I can’t say enough great things! The venue I got married at (Powel crosley) gives you a few caterers to choose from and I am so grateful we went with Simply Gourmet. While the other caterers tried to upcharge for every little thing, Simply Gourmet was reasonable and accommodating and FLEXIBLE. Becky is a true angel and made my experience so seamless. I was a nervous bride and Becky answered all my annoying questions, even if I asked them multiple times. She even remembered things I forgot. She really went above and beyond and I feel like was on my team! The food was outstanding. I have a very Italian family who can be picky about food and I had multiple people compliment us about the food! The portions were large and the food was tasty. I had so many people with different allergies and they got everything correct! Everything from the lamb lollipops to the generous serving of shrimp skewers to my moms made up request of a tomato baked with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese was executed perfectly. Truly so accommodating and amazing! Thank you Becky for everything!!!

Absolutely amazing catering company! They were so sweet the day of our wedding and the food was delicious. We didn’t even taste test before the wedding and loved the food the day of. Our guests all enjoyed the food and bar services. They were super flexible with working with my budget and they really helped complete my wedding dreams! Loved them!

Great Experience with Buffet Style

Simply Gourmet did an amazing job with our small wedding at the Crosley Estate. We chose to do buffet style and there was plenty of food, with everything tasting delicious (Chicken alla rosa, roast beef, carbonara) and the day was smoothly executed. We would love for there to be more photos on their website of their various food items, but it sure looked great in person. Buffet style was fine during COVID as only the servers handled the serving utensils, not the guests. They offered the most reasonable pricing on food between the vendors we were allowed to use at our venue. Becky communicated very well, and everyone we encountered was a pleasure to work with.

"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."
