My husband and I were hell bent on booking the Boathouse for our wedding after randomly finding it online. It was so disappointing to hear that we had no choice in our catering vendor. I did allot of research about Movable Feast and while all the reviews were from people with the exact same concerns as me, they ultimately said that they had the most amazing meal and that the food - from passed hors devours to dessert were fantastic. We felt reassured.
We decided that while we were paying top dollar for the standard food, we needed extra. So we opted for a seafood table, an antipasto table and we upgraded some passed apps for the lamb chops and the mac & cheese spoons. For our entree's we chose cornish hens (an upgrade), hanger steak and we also had delicious mushroom ravioli for the vegetarian dish.
While the food is an incredibly important part of anyones wedding day, so is the on-site coordinator. We did not have a wedding planner or a 'day of' person to take care of all the little things but Yoriko was the glue that stuck everything together. Nobody knows the boathouse like Yoriko and she kept everything on schedule , put everything in it's place and even prepped me before walking down the aisle. Our wedding day would not have ran smoothly without her, she went above and beyond her duties and we'll be forever grateful for all her help in making our wedding day the most perfect day. I feel a little guilty having had my doubts in the beginning but I'm glad that we listened to the reviews online and trusted our guts.
Another thing worth noting is the path to and from the boathouse from the designated parking area. It seemed worrisome to us in the beginning but it was actually allot of fun on our wedding night. We had scheduled a coach to pick everyone up at 11pm so for the most part, we exited together.
We really had a blast! Thank you to all the Boathouse staff who really made an impression on all our guests :)

Thank you to Yoriko and the Movable Feast team for giving us the wedding of our dreams. When we got engaged the first place we thought of getting married was the Prospect Park Boathouse. And thankfully the Boathouse's exclusive caterer, Movable Feast, was a wonderful vendor to work with. Yoriko is so sweet and attentive, and she helped with our planning all along the way. She was very responsive to all my questions and concerns, followed my timeline and some special table set up instructions, and the Movable Feast staff helped with several "extra" things we had planned (a groom's cake, special cocktail hour entertainment, an ice cream truck we hired, etc.). I was worried that I had no planner or day of coordinator, and honestly I didn't need one--Movable Feast knows what they're doing and they take care of you. They handle rentals of all furniture, linens, and dinnerware, as well as bar, staffing, and security. You pick the style and color, they do all the work. The full bar package, wedding cake, and champagne toast is all included too. I loved that we didn't have to make any cost-cutting choices and leave something out, like the champagne, to save money. And most importantly: the food and wine were amazing. We went with hanger steak and miso-glazed salmon (the 2 dishes Yoriko recommended) and got high praises from all our guests. People told me they loved the hors d'oeuvres and that they were abundantly passed. My parents complimented the French wine selection. On a final note, the service from Yoriko and her team is top notch. A table was erroneously set up at the alter; Yoriko grabbed it and moved it inside before the ceremony began, and we used it for our guest book. She arranged my cathedral- length veil before I walked down the aisle. They handed my brand-new husband and I champagne when we came back down the aisle. Yoriko personally went to my mother and introduced herself. She was always in the background but never intrusive. Thank you Movable Feast!

The Movable Feast was a joy to work with for our fall wedding! They were one of the exclusive catering vendors for our venue in Brooklyn. We worked extensively with Yoriko to select a menu and and linens, as well as arrange for rentals and design the ceremony and reception layout. They were professional and responsive, which was nice since this was our first time planning a large event. Jackson was the Captain on our wedding day and made sure the events of the day ran smoothly--he worked closely with our coordinator and if there were any issues, we certainly didn't know about them. They made for a stress-free day. The appetizers and entrees were served warm/hot and the waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing. Movable Feast was an absolute pleasure to work with!

Yoriko and her team worked extra hard to make our wedding at the Prospect Park Boathouse in Brooklyn absolutely perfect. We had unforeseen challenges the day of the wedding due to the weather and Yoriko and the Moveable feast hung in there and supported us through many indoor/outdoor changes. They wanted it outside just as much as we did and thanks to them we were able to make it happen. The food was outstanding and service great throughout the night. Leading up to the wedding Yoriko was very helpful always around to answer questions big or small. I highly recommend Yoriko and her team.

Movable Feast is the exclusive caterer at the Boathouse in Prospect Park. The menu was outstanding and the food excellent. Yoriko, the catering manager, was exceptional in her patience and flexibility. She was prompt in all her communications and extremely professional. The entire staff at the event including waiters, security and parking and bartenders were friendly and very efficient. I had many positive comments from our guests concerning the quality of the food and helpfulness of the staff. Thanks for making the wedding a wonderful event!

When we discovered The Boathouse at Prospect Park as a potential wedding venue for our big day we were instantly in love! So to have also been there that day with Yoriko from The Movable Feast was an omen. From our first meeting back in January 2014, until literally moments before I walked down the aisle when I suddenly felt her fixing my veil at my May 2015 wedding...our experience in working with Yoriko was nothing short of wonderful. Calm, professional, willing to research multiple furniture rental companies -- it felt so comforting to have a reliable person to work with on so many important details across our year+ wedding planning. Then, the day before our wedding, when typical last-minute guest list changes popped up; The Movable Feast was willing to forego charging us for place settings that otherwise would have gone unused. They followed our plans to a T, and made all of our guests feel relaxed and accommodated. And as anyone from NYC can appreciate -- being one of the world's most experienced and critical food cities -- even 5 months later our guests are STILL raving about how much they enjoyed the food from our wedding! The Movable Feast is the exclusive caterer to The Boathouse, and although we may have been worried about not being able to consider other options in the beginning; now in retrospect we couldn't have been more proud or thankful to have had them! You'll be in great hands with The Movable Feast and Yoriko for your big day -- believe us!

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.
