    Phenomenal food and service

    Straight To The Plate traveled to Albuquerque NM to cater our daughters wedding that was held on December 1, 2018 at The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History and the food and service was phenomenal. We had experienced their food at a previous event in Arizona so when it was time to find a caterer for our daughters wedding they were the first we contacted. Traveling such a distance wasn’t normal for them however we worked things out so their delicious food was center stage at the reception. From delicious hot crab cakes, spicy buffalo dip to their tender flank steak, creamy chicken piccata and to die for 5 cheese Mac and cheese they went above and beyond what we had hoped for. Guests were able to enjoy as much food as they could hold because nothing was scrimped on by Straight To The Plate. Plus they also provided all the beautiful tableware for the reception which was one less thing we had to worry about. Guests complimented us on the food and service wanting our cateres information plus many hoped to learn the recipes for the 5 cheese Mac and cheese and their glazed bacon appetizers. My daughter and her new husband were thrilled with Straight To The Plate and couldn’t thank them enough for making their first family dinner such a huge success!!!

    Sue and her team were absolutely amazing! All of our wedding guests raved about the food and the beauty of the place settings. Their menu is so unique and everything they prepare is absolutely delicious. The tastings were really nice because Sue sat down with us and got to know my fiance and I and was interested in all of the details of our wedding. She really worked hard to make it a perfect day for us. The Jalapeno infused lemonade was such a huge hit and perfect for our desert setting! Straight to the Plate was so fun to work with and very accommodating to all of my requests for our wedding day. The floral ice cubes they made for my signature drink were absolutely stunning! I am so thankful to the entire team for every detail they focused on to make it such a special day!

    The service, the food, the attention to detail was top notch! From my first conversation with Sue, I knew there was no contacting any other caterer. The southwest menu she created with chef Tony, was outstanding! Our guests are raving about our cocktail hour which included prepared on site, in front of you guacamole, quesadillas, passed shrimp and mango spoons, and empanadas with avocado crema. If you want the best food and service, contact Sue! Our meals were outstanding and everyone commented us on how delicious it all tasted. Thank you Sue and straight to the plate.

    I was SO nervous to use a caterer and straight to the plate blew my expectations out of the water! Everything they served was hot and fresh, even with a buffet for almost 200 guests. We had steak, salmon, and cheese tortellini and my guests were RAVING about the food all weekend. Their staff was attentive and accommodating to anything my husband and I asked for.

    We were extremely impressed with this vendor. We had our wedding at the Paseo and Straight to the Plate was the catering vendor included in our "all inclusive" package. They accommodated our unique request to have an all vegetarian wedding. They came up with an interesting and tasty vegetarian menu to satisfy ALL of our wedding guests. It was the best food I have ever had at a wedding!! They went above an beyond to make the buffet table beautiful, incorporating decorative items that went well with the bohemian theme of our wedding. Sue was a dream to work with and worked very well with our personal wedding planner. Being an out of town bride always has its challenges, but not when working with Straight to the Plate! I would recommend them to anyone with catering needs in the Phoenix area!

    Sue and her team were AMAZING! We had our wedding at The Paseo and this was our contracted caterer. There were so many food options to choose from that every palette would enjoy. They lay everything out and make it simple to make your choices. There is also a tasting so you are able to try the food before selecting it for your big day. The food was so great! All my guests loved it. I highly recommend Straight to the Plate- they will not disappoint!

    Sue and her team are seriously the best! Along every step leading up to our wedding they made sure every aspect was planned and on the day of our wedding our servers were amazing! I was so happy to actually be able to sit and eat while our guests were taken care of. Weeks later I am still hearing how good the food was and how people enjoyed it so much. We absolutely recommend Straight to the Plate and their awesome staff!

    We used Straight to the Plate for our wedding as they are a preferred venue at The Paseo. Sue and her staff are really awesome! They were very professional and the food was great! We did a BBQ buffet style. They have so many options to chose from on their menu and will work with any budget. They are very easy to communicate with. Thank you Straight to The Plate for serving our first meal as a family!

    Everything about Straight to the Plate was amazing! During all of the chaos of planning our wedding, they were always responsive and helpful - definitely the easiest of all of our vendors to coordinate with. They made sure we knew exactly what to expect before we signed a contract, and delivered on every promise they made. Out of all the caterers we looked at, they were by far the most honest and trustworthy.

    And, most importantly, the food was incredible! Everything at the reception was just as delicious as it was during the tasting. The spinach and artichoke dip and poblano chicken huge hits! The next time I host a large event, the catering will definitely be an easy choice.

    Straight to the Plate Catering was absolutely amazing for our wedding! My husband and I were traveling from out of town but we were still able to get a tasting the week before the wedding to make sure we liked everything on the menu. Every time I e-mailed I got a response within just a few hours. The staff is so welcoming and accommodating, they also had vegan and vegetarian options for a few friends and family. They went above and beyond to make our day so wonderful and the food tasted GREAT!

    Sue & her team were amazing! After losing our previous caterer to his lack of professionalism, Sue & her team pulled together and made our September wedding day meal what we wanted & more. Their variety of dishes & the way they were displayed was beautifully done! Our guests loved every bite & still talk about it today. We are so appreciative for Sue & her entire team, you all did a fantastic job & we would highly recommend your service to anyone. Thank you so much!

    Words cannot express how pleased I was for the services that "Straight to the Plate Catering" offered for my wedding. I utilized "Straight to the Plate Catering" for catering services. Brett and Sue are true culinary professionals from start to finish. Their knowledge and attention to detail were insurmountable. I work in the event industry and have very high standards and I knew I was in good hands with "Straight to the Plate Catering". I was very impressed with how Brett and Sue took charge and went over and above to make our special day memorable, I was extremely impressed with what they brought to the overall culinary experience. Their slow roasted herbed beef roast and their cognac chicken are to die for! I would truly recommend "Straight to the Plate Catering" for their top notch attention to detail, customer service, flavorful food profiles, follow through and overall food services. If you're looking for a foodie expert with outstanding service look no further! Straight to the Plate Catering has it all!

    After interviewing about five different catering companies, my wife and I had the pleasure of working with Susan on a post-wedding party (about 80 people) back in February. Simply put, it was a delightful experience in every way imaginable. From the moment we first spoke, she gave me a comfort level that carried through to the very end. In addition to her excellent customer service, more importantly, the food quality was fantastic. This is also coming from someone that grew up in NYC, and has been in the hospitality industry for the last 25 years. I had a distinct vision for what I wanted to be served, in addition to a strict budget, and Susan, along with her Straight to the Plate team, were able to make it happen in spades!

    I would highly recommend her for any of your catering needs.

    Sue at Straight to the Plate is amazing! At the time of my wedding, I was on a very strict medical allergy diet in addition to being a vegetarian. Sue was able to accommodate my dietary restrictions and created an amazing cocktail hour and reception dinner that was vegetarian, gluten-free, corn-free and soy free. All of my guests (most of whom are meat eaters) loved the food and were amazed. Straight to the Plate went above and beyond my expectations for a caterer and I can't recommend them enough. In addition, a week before my wedding I had a mini-meltdown about weather and I wasn't sure if my all outdoor venue would work. Sue took time from her busy schedule to talk me through it and even made some calls to other vendors on my behalf. Wish I could give them 10 stars!
