  • Simply Gourmet catering our wedding was an absolute dream! From the planning process, Mike was super responsive and listened to every single question/concern we had, which was definitely needed in the time of Covid. If there was anything we were unsure of, he always gave us the time to think things over and even made some suggestions to help us out along the way. With constant changes in event regulations happening over the months leading up to our wedding, Mike made sure to constantly keep us in the loop. And a plus, he also played the middleman with the rental company for the wedding which alleviated a lot of stress from us. As for the day of the wedding, their service and food was a 10/10. By the time we arrived to do our first look, which was a few hours prior to the ceremony start, everything was already setup and absolutely beautiful. The moment the ceremony ended, Darnell had my husband and I's drink of choice in hand, waiting for us! Darnell made sure to check up on us throu... Read more

  • Simply Gourmet was amazing — we’re so glad we chose them as our wedding caterer! Mike and Darnell were a pleasure to work with, and were so patient and kind throughout the entire process. They couldn’t have made it more seamless for us and we were thrilled with how everything came together. The food was delicious and our guests are still talking about how good it was! We would absolutely hire them again for any event, and will undoubtedly order from them when we are in the area. 😊 Highly, highly recommend!! Thanks to Mike, Darnell and the Simply Gourmet team!!!

  • where to start - I hired Simply Gourmet only a few months before my wedding as I threw it together last minute. they make it very clear and easy in selecting from their range of catering options. I loved that they also provided the staffing & bar - that made things much simpler. from there I spoke with & met Mike several times where he quickly resolved any of my concerns/questions. DIY weddings where you bring in your own caterer/rentals is very stressful, Mike made all of that easier, he handled everything with other vendors and was my day of coordinator (including setting up all my decor and establishing the day of timeline). my wedding was the best day of my life, my husband & I were so impressed with the food (the guests raved about it too) and how professional/attentive Mike & his team were. 10000% would use SG again and highly recommend them if you're looking for the total package. thank you Mike for making our day a success!

  • Working with Simply Gourmet was amazing! Mike and his colleague served dinner at our small wedding in Swan Lake, NY and they were both professional and friendly. The food was amazing - everyone enjoyed it and they were able to accommodate for a couple of different dietary needs. Mike worked with us on a short timeline and put together a beautiful menu at a very fair price. Would definitely recommend and use Simply Gourmet again!

  • Mike4 and his team at Simply Gourmet helped us create an amazing wedding day experience for us and our guests. They were did so much more than provide food (which was delicious). They helped with planning, and day of scheduling, and lot's of other things that I had never thought of. Highly recommend!

  • I cannot say enough good things about working with Simply Gourmet. From the beginning, Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. Covid unfortunately hit us mid wedding planning, but Mike was 100% on top of all the guidelines and great with keeping us updated. We ended up going forth with our original date with 50 guest and we are so happy we did not postpone. We actually ended up using Simply Gourmet for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Their on-site space is perfect- it allowed our guests to move around freely without worrying about bothering other guests in a restaurant. It allowed us (and our guests) to really get to know the team (esp the bartender) that would be at our actually wedding. There is so much variety to their menu, that there was no overlap at all with food between the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Darnell was out captain for both events and she really helped everything run so smoothly. Our families still cannot stop talking about how gr... Read more

  • Mike and his team at Simply Gourmet were just completely amazing as a catering and decorating team for my wedding. Not only was the food delicious, they provide the option of a buffet style so you can honestly sample everything. They also decorated the venue exactly as I wanted and described and it was breath-taking. Thank you so much to Mike and his team for making my day so perfect! I highly recommend their services!

  • Simply Gourmet was absolutely amazing for our wedding. Mike was fantastic, answered every single question, made sure everything was what we wanted. It could not have been better. We recommend Simply Gourmet to every single person we meet who needs a place for an event or a caterer for a wedding. Cannot say enough about this company. Absolutely amazing.

  • Mike was wonderful to work with, from the moment we met and discussed what we imagined our reception should be. Mike listened to our ideas but also offered his personal opinions regarding design details such as linens and tableware. We had a modest budget, but he created an amazing menu that seemed as if we had no budget at all. Our guests raved about the delicious food. The staff at the reception couldn't have been any nicer, or more helpful and professional. We are so thankful to Mike and the staff at Simply Gourmet, and highly recommend them!

  • Simply Gourmet did an amazing job at my wedding in late August. Mike was so easy to work with and made the whole process a pleasant experience. I was so impressed by the tasting but the food at my wedding was out of this world! I got numerous compliments from several guests and family members that said the food was the best they ever had. During our second meeting to finalize the menu Mike suggested doing a grazing table. I am SO glad I did, the spread was not only beautiful to look at but also so so so good. During our wedding the staff seamlessly took care of all guests and made sure my glass was never empty! Truly 5 star service & dining!

    Madeline, Thank you so much for the nice review. It was a beautiful day at Nostrano and I am so happy to be a part of your wedding. -Mike

  • Simply Gourmet catered our wedding at Locust Grove Estate and they did an absolutely amazing job! Mike was extremely attentive, professional, and willing to work with us every step of the way. All of the food was delicious. I heard so many compliments about it from our guests. The displays of food were beautiful. Our captain Tammy was very attentive and she made sure to make us both plates of food since we probably would have forgotten to eat!! The only thing I wish is that we were able to take some to go because we were craving it the next day it was so good. Highly recommend!

  • When we set out to find a caterer, we were very overwhelmed with possibilities and endless decisions. One thing we knew was that we wanted a non traditional menu— we wanted grazing and stations. Mike was willing to work with us and create the perfect menu that felt truly like us. He eased our concerns by his ability to be so organized and timely. Day of, the Simple Gourmet team were true rockstars. The entire day went so smoothly. All our guests raved about the food. We can’t thank them enough for how perfect the entire event was. We just wish we could have gotten doggy bags to go, never got to try the cookies everyone kept talking about!

    Hi Jaclyn, Thank your for the nice review! I am glad that we had the opportunity to cater your wedding. The guests had a lot of fun with the stations and it was a beautiful day! -Mike

  • Simply Gourmet was excellent in every regard, we could not have been happier. From day one Mike and the team provided an exceptional experience. He made planning and choosing a menu easy, providing guidance as needed. Their menus and pricing structures are so much easier to understand than any other caterer we found; we always felt well informed, no surprise charges, and Mike was accessible and supremely helpful throughout the planning process. Everyone there is wonderfully kind, friendly and just lovely to work with. Finally, the food. Holy cow, the food was INCREDIBLE! Everyone (including us) thought it was the best wedding dinner we'd ever had. They had an excellent menu with tons of choices, and were happy to branch off menu to accommodate any culinary/dietary requests we had. (Also they offer delicious locally baked pies for desert. Do yourself a favor and get the pies.) Everything served was just so fresh and tasty. All in all, they provided a perfect catering service for o... Read more

  • Simply Gourmet was an outstanding caterer for our wedding this July at Nostrano Vineyards in Milton, NY! Mike was a super helpful and clear communicator in the months leading up to the wedding, the entire staff was INCREDIBLE on the day of the wedding--especially Tammy--you're my hero! (making sure we got to eat and drink, super attentive, moving tables last minute into the barn during a rain storm!) Their attention to detail and amazing work the night of allowed my husband and I to feel relaxed and genuinely enjoy our entire reception without having to worry about everything! On top of this the food was delicious and many wedding guests commented on how delicious the food was and how varied the options were---our vegetarian friends commented that it was an amazing selection for them as well! I would HIGHLY recommend working with Simply Gourmet!

    Hi Erica, Thank you for the great review! It was nice working with you. The wedding was a lot of fun despite the weather. I am glad that we could be a part of it! -Mike
