- Wedding Reception - "I can’t say enough wonderful things about Paul Mattison and his team. It was important to my husband and I that we deliver the best dining experience at our reception and Mattison's more than impressed this Washington DC foodie. From the moment we met Paul, he made us feel like our wedding was the biggest event on his calendar. " 2013
- Anniversary Celebration -
"Thank you for our wonderful Anniversary celebration dinner last evening. We were both very pleased with the attentive service and thoughtful suggestions offered by our server, Jerry. The meals we selected were beautifully presented and the taste was superb. Your restaurant has been a favorite of ours for many years. The food and service are consistently good and the ambiance is conducive to conversation. All of your staff, including the hostess who took our reservation and accommodated our table request (her name escapes us) and manager, Gabriel who greeted us table side to express good wishes, helped make our anniversary special. Our "Anniversary Menu" signed by Chef Paul was an unexpected surprise to treasure along with our memories of a most enjoyable Anniversary evening."

- 50th Anniversary Party -
Our party was such a success due to the fabulous food and excellent service we received. Michael was superb, as was Chef Ken. They were so friendly, courteous and charming. We received so many compliments from our guests about our choice of caterers. Everyone was delighted with our menu selections and amazed at the quality of the food. The buffet table was set up exquisitely, and it's impossible to provide all the comments about the yummy desserts. I wish we had thought to take a photo before everything was devoured. You can be sure we will refer Mattison's to everyone we know. This was the best party we've ever had in our 50 years together!"
~ Sincerely, Gail and Dick DiNoia, June 8, 2011

"Just wanted to thank you for all your efforts with my father's memorial. The catering went beautifully, the food was AMAZING – seriously, those three dips were like paradise in my mouth; I would make those every day of my life if I could – and my mother was just so pleased and happy with everything. So, thanks to you and to Paul and your crew."

- Wedding Reception -
"Chef Paul Mattison took exceptional care to complement the “Old Florida” style of our venue. Paul found a way to incorporate some of our favorite foods onto every plate, from cocktail hour all the way through dessert. We were so impressed with his attention to detail, and of course the food, we just had to book our rehearsal dinner at his restaurant where he and his team delivered a different, yet equally impressive, dining experience from our reception. I was too caught up in the moment and surprised when I spotted Paul talking with my parents and wedding party during cocktail hour to run up and say hi, but can’t wait until I’m back in Florida to give him a big hug. People always say no one remembers the food at weddings, but our guests can’t stop raving about it!"
- Holiday Party -
"We were so thrilled at the delicious food, great service and beautiful presentation of the food at our Christmas party last December. Honestly, we have had a Christmas party for the last 6 or 7 years...I had so many positive comments that I knew we had finally found the right caterer!"

"Paul, I can't say enough nice things about your entire presentation. The food was so delicious and your recommended choices were a big hit! The artistic arrangement of the ginger and carved fish surrounded with fruits and cheese, all so beautifully draped and layered, looked every bit as picturesque as many of the still life's on the gallery walls. Guest comments: 'Who in the world is your caterer??' - My reply - 'Well, none other than the "Paul "- you know... MATTISON'S!!!' Congratulations on acquiring such a wonderful staff. The chef was so helpful and I don't know how he remained so cool while working in such a "hot" environment. Not a spill at that!!! Until our next event, continued success on all of your endeavors. Thanks again."
