  • We feel so lucky to have been able to use the services of Michaels on East for our wedding at Selby Gardens. Amy Allen was our venue coordinator and she was absolutely amazing to work with! She knew the grounds very well and was able to provide us with guidance and expertise to help us make decisions during our wedding. The food was unreal! First, we could not hear enough compliments from guests about the passed hour dourves – we were able to try some at our wedding and they were so delicious. Our guests also loved the salad and the main course. Some of our guests referred to the food as “the best wedding food they’ve ever had,” and we had guests travel in from all over: Connecticut, Boston, New York, Texas, California, Arizona, and Washington D.C. Michaels on East not only delivers the best quality food, but the drinks, the service and the experience was impeccable. We highly recommend working with Michaels on East for your wedding or any event! You can trust them ... Read more

  • Michaels on East did an amazing job catering for our wedding. The food was phenomenal and guests are still commenting about it to this day! Not only was the food delicious, the staff was 5 star! They were very accommodating and made sure my husband and I had everything we needed on our special day. They were efficient with dinner service and made great cocktails. Amy, who helped us with food decisions made excellent recommendations when needed! We were very pleased with everything! Can’t wait to visit at the restaurant for dinner!!

  • Phil was so great to work with, he was funny and accommodating and most importantly- the food was out of this world. My guest stills can’t stop talking about the file. And their Mushroom Wellington was so good I got it as my meal and I’m not even a vegetarian. Would definitely recommend this team to anyone!

    Thank you Haley! It was such a pleasure working with you and your family!! The wedding was absolutely beautiful! We wish you and Robert all the happiness in the world!

  • Michael's on East catered and provided our table/chairs/linen etc. rentals for our wedding. From the beginning, Phil & his assistant Lya were very responsive and easy to work with. We had some special requests for alcohol for our bar, and when we went for our first drinks we realized these requests were missing. Within 30 minutes, Michael's had what we needed brought in. The food was amazing, and not just by wedding food standards. We had so many compliments. Servers and bartenders were friendly and helpful. We are very happy with Michael's!

  • Best caterer ever! We had them cater a welcome reception for 80 and wedding reception for 100 and everything was absolutely perfect and delicious. Staff was warm, kind, and so so helpful at both events. We got so many compliments from guests regarding the food. Bar service was excellent too! They made our wedding night perfect!

  • I cannot say enough good things about the stellar service we received from Phil and his staff at Michael's on East. It may be unnerving to have an exclusive caterer at the venue one chooses, but MOE delivers! It is clear that they wish to provide their clients with the best experience possible; they are not resting on their laurels simply because they have an exclusive catering contract. During the planning stages, Phil, Ngoc, and Lya were always readily available by email and phone. They accommodated my schedule with last minute meetings and tastings. I wanted to serve a certain cuisine that wasn't on the MOE catering menu and Phil made it happen. MOE also offers rental services for chairs, tableware, etc, which greatly simplified the entire wedding planning process. Due to our entirely outdoor venue potentially being impacted by a tropical storm/hurricane, we made the decision to change our venue only two days before the wedding. MOE never missed a beat! Phil took care o... Read more

  • First thing the food. Everyone at the wedding was raving about how amazing the food was and it was the best they have ever experienced. My husband and I knew we were getting a great product because Michaels knows what they are doing and we went to a wedding catered by them before. They were able to accommodate my dietary issues, wine preferences, and dessert table. I can honestly say the Michaels is the best caterer in Sarasota and a must to consider for any wedding. You will not be disappointed. Amy and Phil were wonderful in coordinating site visits, tastings and changes leading up to the wedding. We Love Michaels and you will too!

  • We have used Michaels for at least 5 major parties. Most recently , my daughters wedding at The Crosley estate. We are from NY and DC real foodies. You will not find food and service at this quality level anywhere in the US. Rely upon Phil, he knows how to make a spectacular party. We also did a welcome dinner at their Wine Cellar. Fabulous!

  • Phil from Michael’s fulfilled every wish and created a nice environment for serving the entree “family style”. Our guests loved it and it produced more interaction with each guest than a standard “plated” serving. The food was very good and the waitstaff worked impeccably to ensure every guest had what they desired. Great catering service and food!

  • IN LOVE WITH THIS VENUE. They were so accommodating and catered to our every need. Phil and his assistant Ngoc answered all of our questions and were very flexible with us. I was amazed when I walked into the venue and saw how beautiful everything looked. Not to mention the food is TO DIE for. Everyone was raving about how good the food was and they even let us have all the leftovers! All of the caters who worked the wedding were wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. I wish I could relive my wedding day over and over because it was so amazing, and MOE had a lot to do with that.

  • Absolutely hands down the best in town! We did a LOT of research and talked to many people in town before choosing Michaels. They were so helpful with decisions on the menu, and the food was incredible! On top of being super helpful, responsive, and professional the staff went above & beyond!! I have to make pay a special compliment to Tracy. She made sure EVERYTHING was perfect! Any issue that came up, she addressed and solved immediately! I wish my wedding planner had been as on top of things as she was. Thank you to everyone at Michaels for all your hard work on making our special day something truly memorable.
