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.

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. Mavis was very detail-oriented and professional and highly responsive through email, as well as kind and fun to work... Read More with. 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 have been happier with the food and the service. We liked Mavis so much that we hired her to cater a breakfast brunch the next morning, which was also fantastic. We couldn't recommend Mavis more strongly-- she and her team were wonderful and the food was creative and delicious.

The Delish Dish catered our wedding in April. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Mavis and her team! From our initial meeting, Mavis stood out to me.

I felt like she really took and interest in helping me plan a really delicious menu that also fit our budget! Throughout the planning process she was always responsive and accommodating to any additional requests. As for the day-of, everything went off without a hitch! I have to believe that part of this was due to her organization and making sure she'd thoroughly communicated with the venue manager. Most importantly the food and the service was impeccable! We chose the beef brisket and the beer braised chicken both of which were tender and delicious! Throughout the dinner the staff was attentive making sure my husband and I were taken care of. If you're looking for creative options beyond the standard catering offerings, that are also made from scratch, I highly recommend The Delish Dish!

I had no idea what I wanted but with mavis and her patient help she came up with the perfect items. The food was absolutely fantastic... Read More and the display was so well done. It was an outdoor wedding at a private residence and I was so nervous that there be no mess and the guests catered too.

There was plenty of food and everyone had a favorite. I have never had so many compliments about an event in my life. The two fabulous gentleman handling all of this were so nice to everyone and kept everything spic and span. No mess and afterwards everything was cleaned up beautifully.

Mavis is magic with her outstanding food, flavor profiles, and presentation! She came up with a spectacular, creative menu for our cocktail party/wedding reception, incorporating a special family recipe beautifully into the menu which pleased many friends who have had this... Read More signature item many times at our home. When one remarries at a later time in life, many traditional rules can be bent or broken! She understood my need to have an event that felt like a wedding reception without the classic elements of tossing of bouquets or first dances. She designed the buffet table with her vintage silver and glassware, and also included a silver tray from my family (for the ham!). As the food was consumed, she rearranged the platters and even the table so that it never looked as if they would not be sufficient food in which to nibble during the 2 hour afternoon event. Her team set up the room exactly to my critical specifications - as an interior designer, and with the event in an art gallery, my standards are high! She had never before catered an event at Art Design Consultants, yet was able to make the gallery owner confident that Delish Dish would put on an event worthy of all the beautiful artwork in the spectacular space! She and her staff truly exceeded all my expectations, and there couldn't have been a happier bride than I was!
