100% Recommend Simply Gourmet!
We could not have been happier about the way our wedding went and how amazing of a job Simply Gourmet did. They supplied all tableware and catering for our wedding in March 2021. We had some last minute changes to our timeline given some delays and they were able to roll with the punches and deliver the most amazing meal and catering service. Every part of the meal was awesome. We completely forgot that they delivered the appetizers to our table (since we were busy taking photos during cocktail hour!) and were so pleasantly surprised when those arrived! Simply Gourmet delivered exemplary customer service and were awesome to work with every step of the planning process. Delicious food, amazing service, and reasonably priced especially for the amazing value they provide. We can't thank them enough and highly recommend their service.Sent on 05/15/2021

Becky and Simply Gourmet Caterers are literally the sweetest vendors I've had the pleasure of hiring. They go above and beyond for their couples. The staff was so kind to my guests and other vendors. They made sure that we were able to taste all the food we has on our wedding day. Becky brought over a plate of appetizers for my husband and I try have while we were taking pictures during cocktail hour. She was incredibly sweet and truly took care of us and our guests. My guests still rave about their beef tips appetizers and desserts.Sent on 07/29/2020

I worked with Jaime and Becky at Simply Gourmet and they made the day flow seemlessly. Simply Gourmet was referred to us after our original caterer had to break up with us, no hard feelings at all towards them. In fact our original caterer is the one who referred Simply Gourmet. Jaime was so incredibly helpful in assisting with timeline for the day and helping to keep me on task, which I appreciated as I found the planning process to be very overwhelming. She was attentive to detail and made sure we managed to add time for us to eat on the schedule. Living in another state Jaime was very good at communicatiung with us and even arranged a tasting for my mother and niece since we were not able to make it. The food was sooooo incredibly delicious. I had so many compliments about the food after the wedding, the goat cheese appetizer was a fan favorite for sure. On the day Becky was our go to person and she was such a delight and fun person to work with. My husband and I were not expecting the level of personal attention Becky gave us. While we were getting our portarits taken Becky was there right along with us with drinks waiting. My husband even commented that he felt like Thor .. he would put out his hand and his drink would appear! HAHA! It was a true pleasure working with these ladies. I would recommend them to any brides I know. I am so grateful they were able to step in and help with our day. Their dedication to making this a great experience will not be forgotten.Sent on 10/26/2020

"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!
