We love Delish Dish! They catered our 150+ wedding a few weeks ago. Our day went so smoothly because of her organization, attention to detail, professionalism and most importantly - poise under pressure. Our guests repeatedly told us that the food was the best wedding food that... Read More they'd ever had. From the very beginning of planning she worked with us to put together a menu that complimented our vision. I was very worried about our venue because it required that we rent chairs, table clothes and do a lot of the set up. Mavis went above and beyond to coordinate with a rental company and made that process seamless. Throughout the day my mom kept thanking God for Delish Dish. I cannot say enough good things about the company and am so glad we were able to work with them.

Mavis catered our 200+ guest wedding. From beginning to end, Mavis was phenomenal. She stayed in constant contact with us and always emailed back immediately, which is HUGE when planning a wedding. Not only that, but her food and service were phenomenal. I have food allergies... Read More and sensitivities, which she was extremely careful and reassuring helping us select food items. We did several passed appetizers, plated salad and a buffet. Everything was fresh and so delicious. The staff was attentive and helpful, and she gave us the cutest gift basket of her jams and jellies. My husband has been putting them on everything! We couldn't have asked for better service at our wedding. Thank you so much, Mavis!

We hired Mavis to cater our wedding less than 3 months out. From day 1, she was extremely responsive and put our minds at ease that she would do a fantastic job.

Perhaps more importantly, her food was delicious and unique and exactly what we were looking for. We were able to craft an interesting buffet that was amenable to a number of gluten free and vegetarian guests, but still perfect for all the meat-eaters.

We couldn't recommend Mavis more strongly-- she and her team were wonderful and the food was creative and delicious.
