They are incredible
Robin Lewis and her staff are simply amazing. I will never be able to express how thankful I am for all of them. I originally contacted Simply Entertaining because I was in need of a caterer. It was not long after that I knew I wanted Robin in charge of the entire wedding. Robin instantly made me feel like her family. She was so open to all of my ideas and had plenty of them to share with me. She went above and beyond to make my wedding day absolutely perfect. The food was OUT OF THIS WORLD good (smoked brisket, smoked chicken, macaroni and cheese, green beans, and broccoli). The flowers were stunning and the decor was perfect. I do not know how she did it, but she captured my vision perfectly. My wedding day was a dream and it is all thanks to Mrs. Robin Lewis and the rest of her staff at Simply Entertaining.Sent on 01/07/2020

I recently decided to throw a surprise 10-year anniversary party for my wife. I contacted several local caterers & event planners. Quickly, it became apparent that Robin & Simply Entertaining were by far the best choice.
Every step of the way Robin & Chef Eric went above & beyond my wildest expectations. To the last detail, Robin planned everything including menu, decorations, bar, staff, apps, oysters, everything. Eric executed that menu to a tee. The decorations were so much better than the vague description I provided. Even the napkins in our college colors were perfect.
I cannot recommend Simply entertaining enough. I will not use any other caterer or event planner. Thank you so much for everything Robin & Eric. It was a blast.Sent on 01/16/2019

A dream come true!
The team did an incredible job on our New Year’s Eve wedding!! We had the most delicious taco bar (that my guests raved about!) and Robin planned a gorgeous design for 150 people at The Garden Club. I didn’t have to do anything except tell her my vision! She took my ideas and executed them in the most beautiful, classy way. It was a absolutely a dream come true. People keep telling me it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to!Sent on 01/16/2019

Highly highly highly recommend!!
To say Robin and her team are amazing is a complete understatement. They made our wedding the fairytale of my dreams! I appreciate everything they pulled together and can not imagine anyone else coordinating or catering my wedding! She is a one stop shop and did everything from the linens to catering and bartending. She ever surprised me with an amazing photo booth!! It was so much fun! 😁😁😁Sent on 01/17/2019

Robin and her team at Simply Entertaining...the best! I shared with Robin our colors and our desire for a simple, elegant affair and oh my goodness she delivered. I trusted Robin as the expert and she gave us excellent food and a ceremony space and reception space that were everything i wanted and more beautiful than i imagined. I held back tears when i saw our reception space. In that moment i felt Robin put a little of herself in the space she created for us. I once again felt her passion (very obvious in talking and meeting with her that she loves what she does) and i felt what i previously shared with Robin and her team via email--i felt like Robin was not just another vendor, she is a friend and part of our family. You won't be disappointed with Robin and Simply Entertaining. She is wonderful at what she does and it seems she treats events like they are her events--it is her business but it is also personal. Simply Entertaining gave us memories and an experience we will treasure for life. Guests raved about the sausage skewers and the mini assorted quiche and loaded mashed potatoes and the pulled pork! The sangria was awesome, the set up for the sangria bar was so pretty. Robin enhanced everything and made it better--she set up our official wedding towels so elegantly and perfectly, everything fit so well together! Robin supported me from the 1st inquiry about prices and services. Her response was always quick. Robin didn't just provide a service, she celebrated with us! I am thankful Simply Entertaining was part of our wedding event and i will never be able to thank Robin enough so i will recommend Simply Entertaining every chance i get and we are hoping we can order and purchase mini assorted quiche from time to time and get Robin to share that sangria recipe!Sent on 07/23/2018

Robin and her team went above and beyond and made our little NYE wedding look like a top tier event! The food was amazing, traditional New Years fare with all our favorites. We also had a cheese table, oysters, and shrimp courtesy of Robin’s team. So many compliments from the guests, the food is what they truly remember, and we know they will!Sent on 01/14/2018

Our wedding on July 29, 2017, was simply fantastic due to Simply Entertaining!! We could not have had such a wonderful wedding without Robin and her staff as well as her subcontractors. So professionally organized and arranged. The food was absolutely out of this world, wedding cake and cupcakes so delicious, and the gorgeous flowers. Great music supplied by Nate from Amplify Entertainment and photos by Terry Smith. Couldn't have asked for a better wedding!Sent on 08/20/2017

“Robyn and her team were great to work with. She always had ideas and suggestions for us, but never pushed her opinions on us. We put a lot of trust into her and she exceeded our expectations. I have been to plenty of weddings where the bride and groom are so busy trying to coordinate the details that they don't have the time or ability to relax. Our wedding day went off without a hitch and we were able to enjoy every moment of it because we knew that we had a great team taking care of everything.”Sent on 12/09/2016

Robin was AH-MAZING!!! From the food, decor and all the way down to her staff, her whole crew and way of doing things is top-notch! She did everything from beginning to end and I didn't have to worry about a thing! Not only is she incredible in what she does, she is caring and listens to each and every want you voice as the bride. She made my and my husbands special day the most magical day EVER! I would use her again and again when the opportunity arrives!!!Sent on 01/23/2017

Robin and her staff were outstanding!! From the beginning I had it set in my mind that she would do everything and decorate the way she wanted. It turned out way beyond my imagination and made my day completely perfect! From the little details to the overall ambiance she completely knocked it out of the park! The food was to die for. Our friends and family are still raving about the filets. I'm so thankful Robin and her team orchestrated my wedding. I would highly recommend her!! I cannot say enough how much I loved everything.Sent on 10/21/2015

Simply Entertaining is a complete catering service. Robin and her crew helped plan the event, organized all the decorations, food and entertainment. It was a complete turnkey service.Sent on 10/14/2015
The night of our event it rained and we had to scramble to change things around. Her crew worked tirelessly without complaining as we moved dinner for 40 from the pool deck to inside the house.

Robin and her staff were amazing!!! She came highly recommended and did not disappoint! It was such a relief to know that we had someone with the expertise, professionalism, vision and flexibility to make this whole experience great!!! The day was perfect in large part due to Robin and her staff! Through this process Robin transitioned from not only being our "event planner" but to our friend. We are very grateful she was there to experience such a special moment in our lives.Sent on 06/12/2015
Simply Entertaining's reply:I am truly grateful for the trust in me that Dustin and Lindsey had. We definitely created a friendship and I wish them nothing but a lifetime of bliss!!

When I saw our venue completely decorated my first question to Robin (after I gave her a HUGE hug) was, "How did you get into my head?"Sent on 03/26/2015
To say that she understood and executed my vision is an understatement. After a few meetings and a handful of Pinterest photos, I turned things over to Robin. My family and friends were shocked because usually I am the one doing the party and event planning but I trusted Robin and her team completely. They are beyond talented, creative and detailed. My advise to any bride would be to allow them to do what they do best; don't micromanage and just let them amaze you. As a result, I was not only blown away by the food and the decor, I was easily the most relaxed person in the building....which is what every bride should be on her wedding day!
Thank you again, Robin. You and your team are now intricately woven into the memories of one of my best days ever.

I don't even know where to begin with thanking Robin and her team at Simply Entertaining. She coordinated my reception including rentals, decor and food and did a tremendous job. My wedding was so incredibly beautiful and exactly what I envisioned...actually, it was better than I envisioned. The food was great and everyone was coming up to me telling me how beautiful everything was. While Robin and I planned things out, I left a lot of decisions up to her and I highly recommend it. I totally trusted her and was able to not worry about the little details of the reception because I knew Robin would do a great job and she totally did! If I need a caterer in the future, she will be the only person that I will call. Seriously, if you are looking for your dream wedding at a reasonable price, call Simply Entertaining. You won't be disappointed!Sent on 03/09/2015

I used Simply Entertaining for everything at our wedding! Food, full bar, wait staff, decor, coordinating and planning. I went into this experience with a vision that clicked with owner Robin Lewis. We automatically connected and our ideas bounced off each other's. We booked and started to plan with tons of time which left plenty of time for my mind to wander. There was never a time where Robin wouldn't take my call or schedule a time to meet. I felt 100% connected the day of and confident it would be amazing.Sent on 08/29/2016
Just as I thought the food and decor was perfect! The event was everything I had wanted and more.
If I did it all over again I wouldn't change a thing! Especially Simply Entertaining!

Robin and her team at Simply Entertaining are Simply AMAZING! I met Robin after we had already selected the venue for our wedding (Capital City Country Club) and I really didn't think I needed an event planner. As panic was starting to set in, a coworker who also found, and loved, Robin suggested that I see if she was available even though we couldn't use their catering services (this time). I am so very grateful that she was available, because she took care of EVERYTHING. We came up with a general style and color scheme and she took it from there, including building a Chuppah! When I arrived at CCCC the day of the wedding, I was completely blown away with how beautiful everything was - the tables, the flowers, the Chuppah, everything! It may be difficult for some brides to understand how I could have delegated so much and it was a leap of faith. I had that much trust in her to deliver what she said she could and she did, and then some. Robin helped to make my one, and only, wedding day very special, I can't thank her enough, and I HIGHLY recommend her and her team for any event.Sent on 12/12/2014

Planning a wedding can be so incredibly stressful... unless you have Robin and the Simply Entertaining crew. I gave Robin a (very) rough idea of what I was going for and she took it from there. She calls herself a caterer, but she is so much more! Yes, she catered my wedding (and the food was sooo delicious! Thank you Chef Billy!!!) but she also took care of all the table and chair rentals, finding a musician for the ceremony, hiring a DJ, working with the florist, helping me keep my sanity, and so much more! I didn't have much to work with as far as budgets go, but Robin worked her magic and truly gave me the wedding of my dreams. Everything turned out so perfectly! She is so incredibly detail oriented, friendly, flexible and downright just a joy to work with. I don't even have the words to express how appreciative I am, or how lucky I was to have been able to book her. When you cry while writing a review, you know the vendor did a damn good job lol. Thank you, Robin, Chef Billy, and the SE Team. I seriously can't say it enough!Sent on 06/11/2014

Whitney · Married on 05/25/2014
My daughter and I immediately feel in love with Robin and her team. Unlike other wedding planners who charge a fee for meetings, Robin was always available in person and by phone. This was such a plus as there are so many questions that come up through out the year. My daughter's wedding was absolutely beautiful! Robin is creative and does not do cookie cutter events - every small detail was special. Because of Robin, I was able to relax and enjoy the day with my daughter and her bridesmaids!! Chef Billie - the food was great - we got so many compliments!! We will post pictures soon!! Tallahassee is lucky to have such an awesome event planner and caterer!!Sent on 05/26/2014

I first met Robin 9 months ago when I began planning my wedding. She immediately stood out to me from other caterers because she was very respectful of my budget. Then after talking with her for some time I realized that she not only catered weddings, but coordinated weddings! Robin and the Simply Entertaining team were my sanity during the planning process and the big day. Robin has excellent taste, and with years in the industry wonderful professional contacts. I actually ended up letting her handle all my rentals, flowers, cake, food, ect. She even worked with vendors I hired separately to organize day of flow.Sent on 05/05/2014
Well, before we knew it the big day rolled around and the forecast for our garden ceremony was looking very bleak. She organized a back up plan in no time. I think that's the thing I never thought about before my wedding, what if something doesn't go exactly to plan? Robin made my wedding the beautiful and fun day that it was. She knew exactly how to adapt to any situation and my wedding ended up going very smoothly (and outside). Essentially, Robin made my Pinterest come alive and all within my budget. I have never seen a more beautiful wedding, and it was mine because of her!
I wouldn't every consider another catering company. Simply Entertaining has it all; organization, experience, professionalism, great food, and a large array of services. I really cannot say enough about them! Their pricing is very reasonable, and they are always a pleasure to work with!
Simply Entertaining's reply:Hayley and Jackson, this review was fabulous. We thank you so much with trusting us on your special day. You are very special to all of us and we wish you both the best in life. Let's keep in touch!

Simply Entertaining in Tallahassee is simply FABULOUS !! Robin coordinated everything for my party, tent, table, chairs, flowers, an umbrella and small flooring for the 1 man band, table lines and decor, bartenders, all kinds of things I didn't think of! She then bought napkins with bride-groom names on them. Chef Billy brought amazing food and worked out of my kitchen and he kept everything hot n delicious for our 75 guests. Robin and Chef work so well together and they have a tip top staff so my recommendation is to USE SIMPLY ENTERTAINING for your next event.Sent on 04/30/2014
