Movable Feast was the required caterer at our wedding and we are very lucky to have worked with them. Their team of people, especially Yoriko, are very responsive and were great at making sure we had all the information we needed to make sure our day went perfectly. On the day of, they handled absolutely everything (including helping us put flowers on our bridal party and helping to hand out programs) - these guys do it all on the day of and I truly didn't need to worry about a thing!

The good stuff - the night of our wedding catering staff was very kind and gracious. We got the wines we eventually wanted which were off the normal list, and some of the guests thought the food was worthy enough to talk about the next day. The cake was gorgeous!

Our thoughts - They were a nightmare to work with! Getting a response to any of our emails was like pulling teeth, and getting a response that actually answered our questions was even harder. It got so bad at one point, that we had to contact the Prospect Park Boathouse staff to bring it to their attention. And then there was the horrible tasting that my parents attended on our behalf. They were inflexible, rude and the steak was inedible. Another horrible email to us from co-owner Jackson, and then more misunderstandings. We feel that while the Prospect Park Boathouse was such a gem of a location, it suffers solely on their exclusive partnership with Movable Feast. It seemed to us that Movable Feast stopped trying, stopped caring, and stopped trying to please, for what does it matter when you have the exclusive rights to the wonderful venue!? While their lack of professionalism and quality of service by no means ruined our wedding day - it did cause us a lot of grief and unnecessary stress - the last thing you need while planning a wedding (from afar!).

We went through Moveable Feast by default since our venue was at Boathouse in Prospect Park. However, we are happy to report that Prospect Park selected a really great caterer because their food and service was excellent. Very straight forward and no fuss. Their appetizer's are delicious and the main entrees are above average. The included wedding cake was also really really good. If you're wondering if they're a good caterer when selecting the Boathouse as a venue, they are. If you are wondering if they are a good caterer for another venue, they are good, but I'm sure other caterers might be less expensive. TIP: When paying the service charge - they prefer cash, which was not told to us until the week before. This might be common knowledge that I never came across.

Ellen and Jackson are great. I have no hesitation in recommending Movable Feast. They catered our wedding at the Prospect Park boathouse, and the food was excellent. One of my relatives is still talking about how delicious the filet mignon was!!!

The Movable Feast catered my wedding in the Prospect Park Boathouse. We had a very positive experience working with their director, Jackson. He's very detail oriented, professional, helpful--made everything very clear from the outset and really tried to accomodate our wishes, if you want specific food choices, no matter how bizarre, they'll make sure you get it. So, for example, I had sushi with penne a la vodka and pineapples/mangos with cake:) The wedding was choreographed like clockwork, they planned everything without a hitch or hassle, setting up the tables, providing the waitstaff, toasts, etc. Fees were very reasonable and competitive given how damn expensive these things can be. I never worried for an instance that they would disappoint.

We were very happy with the caterer. They accommodated our guests with food allergies. Fortunately we had also chosen desserts from them since our wedding cake (from elsewhere) was disappointing.
