When I started looking for caterers for our St Thomas wedding I had a hard time finding someone that responded to me in a timely manner and was also flexible and willing to meet my requests. After speaking to a few caterers and waiting weeks and even months to hear back…and essentially having the same conversation over and over again… I eventually started a deeper search which brought me St John Catering/Mathayom Private Chefs in St. John. I had my first conversation with Mat, the owner and he immediately impressed me! Their dishes were creative and unique and I felt like I was really getting a custom, top notch event. They were a bit pricier, but they proved to be well worth the extra cost (and some of the extra cost was the fact they had to travel to STT from STJ). They were also very considerate of my budget and worked with me to get where I needed to be financially. They responded in timely manner (2-3 day turnaround) and every time we had a conversation they had our past conversations documented, so each conversation was productive. My finance’s sister has a restaurant in San Francisco and she also caters weddings/events on the side and so I felt like I was armed with the right questions and knew exactly what to expect by her coaching. However, St. John Catering exceeded my expectations and even the very hard to please sister in law and all the foodies in attendance were thrilled with the food and service. From a timing standpoint STJ Catering nailed it.. to execute a 63 person plated dinner (let’s be realistic you can’t keep 63 dishes hot) does not seem easy, but the food was warm, plated beautifully and the service was excellent. I can not recommend St. John Catering enough, from start to finish they did an amazing job. Even their clean up was fantastic. Skip the research because I did it for you- hire STJ Catering. Oh, its also worth noting that we had individual chocolate molten lava cakes for dessert – they were a crowd pleaser and delicious!

St. John Catering was amazing for our reception! Every detail was attended too with the utmost professionalism and executed flawlessly. The staff is very professional and friendly, the food is amazing (we are still receiving very positive comments), and the attention to detail (time line) will ensure your event is as memorable has you had hoped. I highly recommend St. John Catering to anyone wanting an event to remember!

Mat and crew not only put out some seriously amazing food, but are a lot of fun and helpful as well! The team catered 3 separate events during our wedding weekend in St John, and each one was fantastic. The welcome party, the wedding reception and the brunch after the reception the next day. Every plate was perfect, the bartenders courteous and nice, and the staff was a lot of fun and made the event that much more special. No brainer--if you are having an event [especially a wedding in STJ/STT], don't look any further than St John Catering and Mathayom!

We recently engaged the services of Mathayom and St John catering to host '3" outstanding events surrounded around our daughter's wedding on St John. We were left speechless by the execution of all "3" events. Mat and staff were incredibly professional, thoughtful and the food was amazing. We live in Boston area and have a fair amount of experience and knowledge in the event and catering field. Mat did not let us down and our "65" guests were overwhelmed by the quality of the food and service that they experienced. The key to a successful event is the amount of fun the hostess has. I can report; that this hostess along with bride and groom had the time of their lives due to the comfort and calm execution of all 3 weekend wedding events that were coordinated through our capable wedding planner and Mathayom outstanding presentation of food and staff. Mat and staff felt and treated us like family. It was a honor to work with Mathayom and St John Catering. We will recommend to others and will be back to experience more of their splendid cooking in the near future. Hats off to you SJC!!

Delicious, delicious, delicious! That's the only way to describe the plated, served dinner (Maho Bay package) at my son's reception. Every dish from appetizers to dessert was perfect. The staff of St. John Catering was the most professional I have ever encountered. They prepared the meal on site at our venue and were professional, courteous and responsive to our needs from the moment they arrived. Their teamwork was noteworthy and they were so unobtrusive during our reception that I never noticed their departure. I will definitely use them again for my island catering needs.

Chef Mat and his team were fantastic. From our first phone and email contact, they responded promptly and answered our questions about hosting a rehearsal dinner at our rented villa. Planning was very smooth, and Mat understood the type of dinner and experience we desired and offered helpful suggestions.
On the evening of the event, Mat and Lisa arrived and set to work cooking and arranging everything. They were clearly professionals, and we could relax and enjoy the evening with our family and not worry about anything. The food was amazing! Mat discussed the outlines of a menu in advance, but the details were a surprise, depending upon what was fresh in the market that day. From a variety of appetizers to the dessert, everything was delicious. Mat's choice of wines complemented the meal, and Lisa made sure our glasses were full while Mat was preparing each course in the kitchen.
After dinner, Mat and Lisa cleaned up efficiently and quietly while our guests were still enjoying the lovely evening. There was not one dish out of place, and the few leftovers were packaged up neatly and tucked into the fridge. Lisa even doubled as a group photographer so we could include everyone in our family picture!
We highly recommend St. John Catering if you are planning a special occasion event with great food and no stress!

I could not have been more pleased with the catering services provided by St. John Catering! Not only was the food incredibly delicious (we received so many positive comments from our guests), St. John Catering was attentive to our every need.

When planning a destination wedding in the islands, you may find that many vendors are on "island time" and do not get back to you expediently; this is not the case with St. John Catering. Mat and his team were responsive from our first communication all the way throughout the process of planning our reception. We met with Mat, Jess and several other team members in person before the wedding and went over all details. They discussed rain contingency plans with us (this was a blessing as it turned out that it did sprinkle a few times) and answered any and every question we had.

When it started to sprinkle the evening of our reception, Jess and the team quickly mopped, moved the appetizers out of the rain and made sure every guest was comfortable and attended to. After the rain stopped, they reset up the dining area outside (they were so efficient I hardly knew it was happening) and served the dinner and cake. I can't say enough how delectable the food was and how much everyone truly enjoyed it. I highly recommend St. John catering for a wedding or any other event in the Virgin Islands.

Mat and his team worked with us to create a fabulous menu for our 100-person wedding reception on May 18th. His food was delicious and beautiful! Our guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. Mat and his staff did a walk through with us the day before and stayed the entire night of our wedding to make sure everything was perfect. We would recommend Mat to anyone looking to have their wedding on St. John!

Mat and his staff worked at our wedding on St John on May 17, 2012. The wedding was everything and more because of his services. Mat himself was at the wedding the entire night. He made sure my husband and I were always comfortable and happy. The food was absolutely amazing and my guests are still talking about it. The hit of the night was our Coconut shrimp with chutney skewers! Delicious! We also had great comments on the Key Lime tartlets too!
The service as also amazing, the bartenders, the staff at the stations - everyone was just so helpful and friendly. I have 3 very picky nieces that were all very happy at the end of the night because Mat not only brought out two huge trays of chicken fingers for them but all the staff was willing to make them plates that fit their picky diets!
To all of you working for Mathayom, Matt and I would like to say thank you for making our day so memorable and so special, we wouldn't have done it any other way!
