    An Easy Choice!

    While planning our wedding, my husband and I explored several catering companies and were by far the most impressed with The French Gourmet. The French Gourmet's phenomenal reputation exists for a reason. Working with them was absolutely one of the best parts of my wedding. Throughout the planning process, they were professional, responsive, and flexible. They make it easy to customize every part of the menu to our tastes. On the day of the wedding we did not have a thing to worry about. Even though at the very last minute I still had not made a seating chart for my guests, they were flexible and experienced enough to adapt their plans and still serve guests at their tables. Michel and Renee were in control and made sure that all of our needs were met. Service was friendly and efficient. The grilled flat iron steak was delicious! My only regret is that I wish I could have had time to try some of the appetizers during the cocktail hour. The French Gourmet was one of the main reasons why my wedding went off without a hitch! I would recommend them without any hesitation!
