  • 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!

  • 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 really helped make our wedding day special. Mike, Tammy, and the rest of the team were wonderful. They had so many great options and we got so many compliments from guests about the food. I had heard that it's hard to find time to eat as the bride but I made it a priority to make a few plates and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend!!!!

  • Simply Gourmet catered our wedding at Locust Grove on October 20, 2018. They work together so often that we had a lower cost "package" deal for our venue. Mike and his team were amazing! Mike is detail oriented, quick to respond, and helped us to plan everything about our wedding. The day of, his team was friendly and accommodating. Also, their food is AMAZING and locally sourced.

  • We got married at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, NY on September 29, 2018 and Simply Gourmet was our (amazing) caterer. I reached out to Mike online and he immediately got back to me. We talked on the phone for a while to discuss what we were looking for in a caterer, and it became clear very quickly that they are serious experts. Felt really good about our conversation so we scheduled an appointment for a tasting. Literally everything we tried was delicious, so we decided on the spot that we wanted to go with Mike and his team. A few months prior to the wedding we met again to lock in the menu and linen selections, and all other details. Because Locust Grove is one of their most frequently used venues, Simply Gourmet offered an all-inclusive package deal. They covered the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception setup, food (obviously) and alcohol, and all linens and rentals. They provided an awesome captain that helped us facilitate the entire day, and all of the staff were on point... Read more

  • I cannot say enough about Mike and Ryan. From the initial call I made to Simply Gourmet Mike was very responsive, upfront and knowledgeable. We knew immediately after speaking with Mike that they were the caterers we wanted to use. Anytime we had a question or concern Mike was always available to speak. He was very prompt and accommodating with our schedule to meet being we do not live in the area and always made our "meetings" fun with his outgoing personality. I knew going into the big day that the food would be amazing based on the tasting we did but I've received so many compliments on the menu from guests that attended (especially on the Salmon, Steak, Mac & Cheese & Broccoli salad) OH and the seasonal pies were delish! When I would run ideas by Mike he would always provide his honest opinion and offer more cost effective options which was really appreciated ( we all know staying within budget is important). They really took the lead on the event planning & rentals which definitel... Read more

  • We truly could not have asked for better service! From the moment we met Mike at Simply Gourmet we were impressed, and then we tried their food and were completely blown away! Mike worked with us to meet our every need. Not only that but he went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! On the day of the wedding the team at Simply Gourmet was completely professional, always made sure that we were happy and completely nailed the set up on our entire day! It was a dream come true, we still are getting compliments on how good the food was and how beautiful everything turned out! I would give 10 stars if I could!!!

  • Mike and his crew at Simply Gourmet could not have made our wedding day better! The food was delicious, and our guests were very, very complimentary of it. And on top of all the great menu options for our wedding day, Mike does so much beforehand in making sure everything is running smoothly - from rentals, to decor, to guest count, etc. He really put our needs first which is, we think, one of the most important qualities they possess., on top of being flexible and conscious of our budget. Simply Gourmet was wonderful to work with, and we could not recommend them enough!

  • Simply Gourmet was everything we hoped for in a caterer and more. Every interaction with Mike was a pleasure, from initial contact, to menu choices, tasting, special requests, he handled it all. Mike was so responsive to every email and phone call, which made things so smooth for us. On the day of, they handled everything perfectly. The entire staff on site were amazing. Our captain for the day personally catered to us all night. We really felt like we got the royal treatment. The food was perfect and our guests couldn’t say enough good things about the service, the drinks, everything. Simply Gourmet was simply perfect.

  • My husband and I are so happy we chose Simply Gourmet for our wedding! From our initial contact with Mike through the wedding he was so responsive, kind, and helpful. Through all of our planning he provided insight on so many things we would have forgotten about, and whenever I'd reach out asking how something was done he already had a plan on how to handle it. Planning our wedding was so easy with Mike, what we thought would be super overwhelming was a breeze. We used Simply gourmet for our rehearsal dinner the night before and everyone was so excited to see what we'd have at the wedding, and they did not disappoint! On the day of the wedding we couldn't have been happier, everything went as planned and all of our guests raved about the food. I cannot say enough about how happy we were with everything, I highly recommend Simply Gourmet, go for a tasting you won't be disappointed!

  • Mike from simply gourmet is a fabulous chef and his food is delicious. I recently hired him as the caterer for my wedding at the minnewaska lodge is gardiner ,ny and I was impressed by the taste and presentation of his menu. We had the Mediterranean bar, mac n cheese bar , pork loin, beef loin, mixed veg,mashed potatoes and mushroom ravioli. His staff was incredible they were attentive and pleasant to everyone’s need from the very beginning. I would definitely recommend Simply Gourmet as professional service to anyone who wants value and quality in a caterer.

  • It was so great to work with Mike and his staff. We had our wedding at the Harness Racing Museum in Goshen, NY. Mike worked within our budget to ensure we had all the details and services that were important to us (open bar, cocktail hour food stations, etc.). We received so many compliments from our guests on how great the food was. I cannot recommend Simply Gourmet, enough! We made the right choice to go with them.

  • Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Simply Gourmet. Our wedding was three weeks ago and we still haven't stopped talking about how responsive, attentive, and fantastic the staff was. With a day that could be full of stress and nerves, simply gourmet made us feel at ease with how organized and accommodating they were. Besides being great people, the food they served was exceptional. Reminiscing our wedding with family and friends, we couldn't imagine it without Simply Gourmet!

  • 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!
