    Best caterer ever

    I seriously cannot recommend Simply Gourmet highly enough. They did an AMAZING job throughout the whole planning process and were fabulous on the day of the wedding as well. We primarily worked with Becki, and I cannot say enough good things about her. First, the food was AMAZING. We had chicken (so tender!), green beans (cooked to perfection), rolls (everyone LOVED), salad with amazing dressing, baked ziti (my fave!!), and brownies and amarettos (to die for!). Our hor d'oeuvres were amazing as well. Our venue had a rule that the caterer must handle all of the rentals (chairs/lights/heaters/linens), and Simply Gourmet did an excellent job ordering all of the rentals and making sure they were set up. On the day of, the staff was so friendly and kind and treated not only the wedding party, but also the guests like kings and queens. Not only does Simply Gourmet offer 5 star service, they also are so affordable and will work with you on pricing. CANNOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH. If you are from the Sarasota area or are getting married in the Sarasota area, you want this vendor at your wedding!!! 10/10

    Delicious!

    I had the pleasure of working with Becky and she was great! She went above and beyond for me during my planning process. I planned my wedding from out of state and she was so easy to communicate with. During our tasting they whole staff treated us so well, and the food was amazing! We worked with Chef Will, he was great as well. On our wedding day Becky made sure a server focused on my husband and I to ensure we ate and didn't miss out on appetizers during pictures. When we sat down for dinner we even had a plate with every appetizer to make sure we tried everything. We had just under 200 guests, dinner was served very timely and everyone loved their food. I highly recommend Simply Gourmet Caterers, thank you Becky!

    "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."
