    Excellence in food and service

    The French Gourmet was recommended to us as a caterer for our son's rehearsal dinner event. Being from out of state, we knew no caterers and once I spoke to them on the phone, I looked no further. They quickly understood the feeling we wanted for that night and suggested a menu to go along with that. The food was delicious and the help were so professional and friendly. Michel and Renee were wonderful to work with. Look no further than the French Gourmet for a vendor. They were perfect!
