  • Michele Grossman and the Catering by Michaels team were a pleasure to work with for our 9th annual fundraising gala. The event had 265 guests in attendance, our largest crowd yet, and service was (a) by far the smoothest and (b) featured the best food we have ever had, including a gourmet, custom designed dessert created by the chef to fit in with our musical theme. Everything, both in preparation and execution, could not have gone more perfectly. We would recommend Michele and Catering by Michaels without hesitation!

  • The food is amazing. We also had several vegetarian dishes which were excellent. Why spend days cooking when you can get this quality of food? Everyone loved the food and wanted to take left overs home. We have used Catering by Michaels for many events and dinner parties in the past and will continue to use them for even more events in the future.

  • For the past few years I have used Catering by Michael’s to cater food for my annual holiday party. The trays I get are always a big hit with my friends. The price seems like a great bargain considering the quality, taste, and presentation. Not to mention, it saves me prep time. The people at Michael’s are always pleasant to deal with when I call and I’m glad to have found them. They have a loyal customer in me. Most years I usually order the Spanish antipasto tray, mozzarella rotolo, and the mini candy bar pies. Last year I tried something new which was the Serbando’s nut mix and for something that sounds pretty basic, it was a party favorite for sure. I’ll be ordering that again! Can’t say enough great things about this company.

  • Designed Cuisine was WONDERFUL! The food was delicious, and just as delicious at the wedding as at our tasting. Our wedding was at my husband's parents' house and we were quite nervous hiring a caterer because we are both sort of foodies and wanted the food to be great .. and it WAS! Everyone commented on it and the staff was so fun and professional at the wedding as well. Scheduling and booking everything was so easy and everyone at the company was just a pleasure to work with.

  • My husband and I selected Catering by Michael's as the number one choice to cater our wedding. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable about what they were serving, and above all, the food was AMAZING! We elected to go with a butlered-style dinner service (passed Hors d'oeuvres), which worked out incredibly well for how many guests we had and the space of our venue. Some of our favorite dishes from the evening included: Tomato Bisque, served with grilled cheese, Chinese chicken chopped salad, pulled brisket barbacoa, spicy tuna cones, and chocolate French macaroons. In reality, I wish I could list the entire menu because everything was so delicious and typing this review has me hungry for more. We highly recommend these guys! If you are looking to cater an event, definitely schedule a tasting and I'm sure you'll fall in love with the food just as we did!

  • Catering by Michael's was one of the BEST wedding meals that I have had! They may be a little more expensive than competitors, but you pay for what you get- a restaurant-quality meal that is hot (they cook on site) and delicious. Aside from the actual food, the wait staff is professional and prompt. There was 1 wait staff for two tables, so the service was top notch. We are so glad we went with Catering by Michael's because all of our guests raved over our food and the staff. One guest even went to the kitchen to compliment the head chef!

  • We had our wedding at Independence Grove and they only use Catering by Michael’s and I know way they do now. The food was amazing and so where the chefs. We had a blast at the tasting and they make is so personal, it’s just you and the guest you bring. The chef came in and worked out all the dietary issues we had. Changed menu items around and created new stuff just for me. I am vegetarian and I am never tasted something so good in my life at a wedding for a vegetarian. My plate was empty when they took it away. I loved the verity of appetizers they offer the Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Fingers is a must and they also made Fruit Kabobs for us so refreshing and with having Vegans at the wedding they truly loved having something to snack on. We had their Ice Cream Sunday Bar instead of a cake and that was the biggest hit a long with the late night snack of Soft Pretzels (Cinnamon and Sugar or Normal with cheese sauce if you wanted). They are so willing to work with everything you... Read more

  • Designed Cuisine, and Michele Grossman did an outstanding job. Everything was perfect. Everything turned out as planned. The food, service, attentiveness of the staff, everything, helped to make our daughter's wedding an incredible evening. We will recommend Designed Cuisine without reservation to anyone who asks.

  • So Catering by Michael's is not the cheapest caterer, but their food is delicious! We got so many comments on how the food was amazing, and they accommodated my last minute requests for a late night snack. Everything was great and the only thing I was upset about was that my husband didn't share his plate of food! (We were suppose to share two different meal options since they were so good, but he forgot.) The cake from Catering by Michael's is contracted through Oak Mill Bakery and Deerfield Bakery. The cake tasting wasn't very good but I knew the two companies made delicious cakes, and the cake itself was delicious the day of.

  • Catering By Michael's simply could not have done a better job. The planning was flawless and stress-free, thanks to the owner Stewart, and our planners Michele and Laurie. Our guests still rave about the food...that was almost 11 years ago! The staff was beyond accomodating and paid attention to every last detail. They arranged for a cake that was not just beautiful, but people ate it, and loved it (our guests still talk about the cake, too!). Phenomenal! The linens, the china, the candles, the smallest detials were completely attended to. My husband and I simply showed up to the best "party" we ever had. Amazing.

  • I got married 8/09 and Michele Grossman was our contact person at Designed Cuisine. I literally don't have enough positive things about her and the day she planned for us. My mother and I were so, so thankful for all the energy she gave to us and how far above and beyond she went for my wedding. She really made the day. First things first-- the food was absolutely amazing. All of our guests said that it was the best, most creative food they had ever had at a wedding. They also commented on how nice and professional all the staff was and how eager they were to make sure everyone had what they needed. We were completely, totally thrilled with how everything went the day of the wedding. We had a logistically challenging affair-- it was in my parents' backyard in Wisconsin-- so they did all the catering and plating in our garage. They were not ideal circumstances to say the least. But everything was gorgeous and went off without a hitch. There were so many things that could have gone w... Read more

  • We had a vision...an idea...that Michele and her team made come to life. It was a magical night from beginning to end. The "farm to table" feel of the dishes, antique silverware, etched glasses, unique serving pieces that blended so well with the special selection of linens, flowers and candles...was spectacular. All the special details that Michele really thinks and cares about are what made our tables look and feel so amazing. Our guests are still talking about the food. Alot of thought went into the presentation and selection every item from appetizers, dinner and dessert. The presentation was unique and beautiful...and so delicious! We missed most of the appetizers and desserts (thank god for the tasting) but dinner was superb. Our Bridal rooms were behind the kitchen prep area, so we were able to see Michele in action. She put an amazing team together. The staff was professional, friendly and offered us anything we needed. We have used Catering by Michael's for e... Read more

  • We had our post nuptial party in the north pavilion at Independence Grove. The reservation, the catering, and all the details went through Jami at Catering by Michael's. We were extremely pleased with how everything turned out. The catering staff was very friendly and did a great job, and many of our guests commented on how good the food was. Jami was fantastic to work with from the very beginning all the way through to the day of the party. We highly recommend her and Catering by Michael's!

  • Catering by Michael's did an amazing job at our wedding. They are the exclusive caterer to Independence Grove so we didn't exactly pick them but I couldn't be happier with the choice. The food choices were amazing; there were literally dozens and dozens of options for appetizers, entrees and desserts. The entrees came out hot (all 200 of them) and the presentation was beautiful. Our sweet table was so impressive! There was a milk fountain! I obviously chose milk and cookies but didn't have any idea that it would be in the form of a fountain. The quality was unmatched and we're still receiving compliments from our guests about the food. They are definitely an example of you get what you pay for though so if you're looking for a budget caterer they might not be the way to go.
