  • We are SOOOO glad we found Mai Oui Catering. The first caterer we did a tasting with was kind of a horrific experience, so we decided to keep looking. We had our tasting with Mai Oui, and were absolutely blown away. The way the plates were prepared, from aesthetics to taste, were complete perfection. We didn’t ask to change a single thing. We developed a relationship with Ericka, who is just hands down an amazing human, who exudes hospitality and passion for what she does. Ericka is organized, has an amazing attention to detail, and it made us completely calm knowing she was there for us on our wedding day. Part of us expected the food to not be as amazing as it was at our tasting on our wedding day, because they were going from feeding just the 2 of us, to feeding 120 people. We couldn’t have been more wrong. I have had tons of our guests STILL talking about the food, 5 months later. The service staff was so professional, and amazing. They coordinated the tables, stations, pre-bu... Read more

  • I am the Mother of the Bride and Trust me when I say I do lots of research before committing to something, and very picky! I cannot say enough about "Mai Oui". From the first contact all the way to the end of the wedding, this team was nothing but professional! I loved our initial phone conversations, the emails, tasting day and then the Wedding! Their food and presentation is amazing! Guest raved about the cocktail hour Hors d'oeuvres as well as our plated entrees! Delicious!!! The servers were so sweet and attentive to all needs of guests. Ericka is especially SOOO easy to work with, as I feel like we have a new friend. I would recommend her and Mai Oui for your wedding or up coming event hands down!! Im available for any questions that you may have about them, but I would do it all over again without hesitation!!

  • Ericka was amazing from start to finish. She made sure the service was flawless at or wedding. Ericka ensured that everything we needed was there. No stress wedding day! After initial contact and setting up a menu they handled everything after that! The food is amazing! If they had a restaurant we would dine there often, my husband and I always joke about this! We were able to choose items that fit with in our budget. We choose caprese skewers, Mac and cheese bites, deviled eggs and shrimp and grits for starters (omggg 🤤). A salad that was plated at each table and a buffet of chimichurri skirt steak and chicken piccata. The sides were potatoes au gratin and greens beans. Everything was fantastic! The service was great and the staff makes sure everyone was attended to. If you are looking for a caterer with great food and a great price and exceptional service look no further!

  • We were unable to do a tasting prior to the wedding and we were crossing our fingers that everything would go smoothly and be delicious. Our expectations were exceeded and the food was seriously AMAZING! The attentiveness of the servers made us feel so special. Ericka went above and beyond and we can’t say thank you enough for such a successful night from appetizers all the way through dessert.

  • Mai Oui did such a fantastic job during our wedding at the Jacksonville Main Library! From the beginning, the communication with Karen was open and clear and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. There is a charge for the tasting, but it is waived upon booking with them. The food both at the tasting and the actual wedding was wonderful! Staff who passed out appetizers recognized the need to ensure they were offered to guests far away from where they were coming from. During dinner, the staff was very attentive to our needs and the needs of our families. Karen and her staff were also excited to be able to accommodate a custom dessert bar (halo-halo bar, traditional Filipino dessert-- my husband and I provided all the ingredients and Karen even made a mock setup for us to ensure it was exactly how we wanted it. They were able to set it up and execute and it was a huge hit! Overall, we would highly recommend!

  • The best experience EVER! Karen and the staff at Man Oui! are beyond exceptional! They are so friendly, kind and professional. They go above and beyond in every detail. They accommodate your every need and then some! I haven't even mentioned the food yet!!! THE FOOD is the best and most delicious food I have ever had in my life! I'm not exaggerating when I say this either. All my wedding guests raved about everything! it was the highlight of a lot of my guests evening! Im still hearing about the amazing food months later! I wish I could have another wedding and have it catered again by them! You can not go wrong with Mai Oui! I love everything about this company. I could go on and on, but I really just want to thank them a million times for everything !! XOXO

  • My experience with Mai Oui was amazing from start to finish. Having to plan my wedding remotely, in Sydney, Australia, seemed daunting at first but Karen accommodated my calls at times that worked with the time zone difference and put me at ease. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about the menus and what works well for weddings. She also had extensive knowledge of the reception venue, which I hadn’t seen, so I relied heavily on her for set up ideas and table placement. I would highly recommend Mai Oui For any kind of event you need catering for.

  • Karen and her team were INCREDIBLE! As a catering service, they definitely go above and beyond. Every single thing about their service was top notch and I felt like they had us in mind every step of the way. Also the food was so delicious. My guests told me it was the most unique, but also most tasty wedding food they have ever had. Usually wedding food is bland, maybe dry, regular food that anyone can eat. This felt like a gourmet dinner by the seaside, filled with flavor and distinctive taste. I also loved the bamboo cutlery and plating they provided, eco friendly and really good looking. Thank you so much Mai Oui!

  • We were married at The Treasury on the Plaza 12/16/16. Karen was beyond amazing working with our budget to create a menu and finding experience that reflected us as a couple and our favorite foods. Freda was a beyond amazing Day of coordinator- she worked with us consecutively for the first few weeks prior, helping us with every step and making sure all of our vendors were communicated with and accounted for! Freda was a calming and supportive presence for everything, she has such knowledges and understanding and Karen and Freda have such a great rapport with our venue and all vendors! -needless to say it was an amazing creative experience and you are working with talented, knowledgeable, gracious and bride focused people, that truly get pleasure from having your day go perfectly this is not just a job for them it's a lifestyle.

  • Working with Karen and Mai Oui! was a terrific experience from beginning to end. Karen was so helpful and the menu choices were outstanding - hard to pick (but she helped guide me into some delicious choices). Her attention to detail is amazing, not only was the food delicious, but displayed so beautifully. I got so many comments from my guests on the food and how much they loved it. If you get to choose your own caterer, Mai Oui! is worth it - I couldn't have been happier. She also helped with other details like chairs being set up on the beach and the bartender. We had a take away box at the end and some leftovers to come home and eat after the honeymoon. Thank you Karen and all of your staff!!!

  • Mai Oui! had great food, especially the appetizers which my guests loved. The fried mac and cheese poppers went so fast and they would not stop talking about them! I also thought the service was great, even though as the bride I was so busy I hardly noticed the servers and somehow everything managed to be where it needed to be and at the right time. Perfect pour managed our bar and Alicia was incredible with helping us (being patient with us) and delivered an exceptional night of bar service and our signature drink. In addition to the food, perhaps the most rave worthy part of my night was the superb wedding day coordinating of Karen Bassham and her partner Freda. Karen was so thorough in following up with me, my family, and my vendors. She truly made the wedding come together as I dreamed. She was always so prompt in responding and gave great advice. She was also incredibly organized and thought of and paid attention to details I was oblivious to. But the best part was on the ... Read more

  • Mai Oui provided exceptional service and phenomenal food! I was genuinely concerned for the usual comments you hear from guests about their wedding meal quality. After experiencing our tasting, we were beyond convinced that Mai Oui was the caterer for our wedding. We could truly taste the heart and soul that the chef put into his work. Not only was the food amazing, but the table and buffet scape set up was beautiful. We made the choice to have a buffet for our guests to eat from. The presentation looked nothing like your usual buffet set up. Karen provided flowers for decoration similar to the ones we ordered through our florists. Overall, it was a great night with a wonderful meal and I couldn't have been happier! We received many compliments from our guests about the deliciousness of their meal. Needless to say, my husband and I were very happy with our caterer selection.

  • I will give you my honest review. My wedding was on 10/23. I will say, the FOOD was the most important thing to me for our special day. I spent so much money into this and I did my research for catering companies around Jacksonville. From day 1, Mai Oui felt like the right choice, they were very nice, they listened to my wants and Freda was amazingly helpful. Great to work with. I seriously felt like my day would go perfect having them as my caterer. WRONG. I was told all tables would be set with the plates, napkins. I was told the guests would be offered food by having the staff walk to them with the food. I was told the food i paid for would be enough for 55 guests. I even increased the main dish (chicken and waffles) to ensure we have enough food. Well, the day comes, and when i arrive to reception, i see no plates in the tables,(i was told to hand over the plates knives and forks i bought to caterer once they are prepping the venue, which we did) i see guests standing at the bar a...

    First Marilyn I am sorry you were disappointed. Your reception foods were light passed hors d'oeuvres and there were no plates on your invoice. You wanted to provide the plates for the Chicken and Waffles and for your cake which we used at the cake table and at the Chicken and Waffle station. There was no dinner plates on the guests tables because this was not a dinner reception but light passed hors d'oeuvre reception. We did pass hors d'oeuvres during your reception to all your guests both inside and on the patio. You were on a budget and I know you and Freda talked many times about the amount of food for your guests that we felt comfortable serving...But we respected your request to stay within your budget. We had sufficient chicken and waffles for your guests. Again this was not a meal. The chicken and waffles was served at the bar because this is where they were made. During our walk through we talked about the location of where things would be placed and the chicken and waffle station was going to have to be at the bar due to space restraints. We also suggested you might want to think about using cocktail tables in place of the 60" round tables because this was not a dinner reception but a light passed hors d'oeuvre reception but you wanted seating for everyone. Once again we are sorry you are disappointed!
