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!

I can't say enough good things about Sue and her team. Her food is of course amazing, and her service and professionalism blew me away. I felt totally confident that my event was going to be flawless. I have recommended her to a number of my friends and even used her for corporate events at my work. I highly recommend Straight to the Plate!

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!
