Sue at Straight to the Plate is amazing! At the time of my wedding, I was on a very strict medical allergy diet in addition to being a vegetarian. Sue was able to accommodate my dietary restrictions and created an amazing cocktail hour and reception dinner that was vegetarian, gluten-free, corn-free and soy free. All of my guests (most of whom are meat eaters) loved the food and were amazed. Straight to the Plate went above and beyond my expectations for a caterer and I can't recommend them enough. In addition, a week before my wedding I had a mini-meltdown about weather and I wasn't sure if my all outdoor venue would work. Sue took time from her busy schedule to talk me through it and even made some calls to other vendors on my behalf. Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Without a doubt, Sue Carlisle and the Straight to the Plate Team is the BEST in the industry. Sue did a customized tasting for us, gave us great ideas for how to bring out a vintage-inspired theme, and went above and beyond to build a custom dessert menu when we decided we wanted to do something different. She was always incredibly fast to respond to our billions of questions and really put some love into all that she brought to our day. She is an all star, and I can't tell you how many guests raved about the food and the specialty desserts.

Sue from Straight to the Plate met with Tony & I and really helped us personalize our menu for our wedding. From the appetizers to the main courses, everything was prepared well & tasted great. She added so many personal touches- like a cheese and fruit tray in the bridal suite and the groom's room. She even served both of us at the head table, so we didn't have to go through the buffet line!

We were really pleased with the service we received from Straight to the Plate, and have received a lot of compliments from our guests as well. I would highly recommend checking them out for wedding catering or any other event!

Sue and her crew did a fantastic job for our client’s open house event. Even though everything did not go exactly as planned, Sue was able to adjust quickly with style and grace. She made my job so much easier because I never even had to think about the food or service. And the food wasn’t just stuff from a big box store that was nicely presented. Everything was made so fresh and delicious that our guests were lining up to enjoy every tasty morsel! We would highly recommend Straight to the Plate for corporate events, meetings, and parties!

Straight to the Plate was great! Their food was a huge hit and we had plenty of it. When we met with Sue she was extremely helpful in helping us decide our menu and what people would like. The flavors were phenomenal and everything was fresh instead of that frozen stuff you get from some caterers. Their staff was great and extremely helpful during the reception and everyone really enjoyed the food!

Sue was great to work with. She listened to what we wanted and was very flexible in creating an elegant plated dinner option that included filet mignon and chicken picatta plus two sides on each plate. So many of my guests thought the filet was cooked to perfection and when they found out there wasn't a kitchen on site and all the food was prepared off site and brought in they were even more impressed. Everyone loved the BLT stuffed tomatoes and chimichurri sauce on the butler passed hors d'oeuvres. I was glad I went with the caprese salad because many guests enjoyed that special touch. My only slightly negative was that many guests commented on the chicken being a bit dry and missing the sauce. The look of the green beans and twice baked potatoes weren't the best looking, but they tasted delicious. Thank you so much for making my steak and potato family happy on my wedding day with great food!

We found Sue through an all inclusive program and LOVED her!! Her food is YUMMY!!, she has great taste in how she presents her food! She will take salad and it will be presented in a gorgeous Vase until time to serve!! She adds to the elegance of your venue right up to the time she clears her food and serving dishes from view! She added Australian translations or slang to the cards advertising the options and it was a big hit with both the Americans and the Australians!! I know Brides aren't supposed to have time to eat, but I MADE time cause her food is That Good!!! If she is close to where you live, please consider her and you
Won't be disappointed!!
