We knew working with Mattison’s was the right choice immediately. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating from the get go and full of personality. We loved that about you guys and how willing you were to make the food match our dietary needs and wants.
People raved about the food especially the cauliflower mash which was one of our favorite items that we tried at the tasting. Everything tasted wonderful though and the staff was exceptionally friendly and again accommodating! Plus, the dessert tier was exactly what we envisioned! You all surpassed our expectations!
I would highly recommend Mattison’s to anyone needing a great catering service who goes above and beyond, and I will be sure to spread the name around!

I just wanted to take a second to email you and thank you for the incredible service you guys provided for our wedding. It went off w/o a glitch and Aleks & I had the best time.
Thanks so much to you and your team!

I want to thank you again for providing such excellent,all-around service from yourself and everyone from Mattison’s who was involved in my daughter’s wedding. Your clear, timely communication and handling of last minute changes made it so enjoyable to work with you. The wait staff were so efficient,professional and pleasant to our quests. I did not meet any of the ‘wizards in the kitchen’, but the food was absolutely delicious-perfectly prepared-and presented. Everything from the appetizers to the last cupcake (we had some with breakfast the next morning ) was amazing! Every single guest raved about the food-many of them commenting that ‘it was the best meal they’d ever eaten at a wedding!
Please express our gratitude and praise to the entire team…if we return to the Sarasota,Siesta Key area we’re going to Mattison’s for our first meal!! I’m so glad Tammie from Siesta Key Events highly recommended you.

I wanted to write to you while this is still fresh on my mind. The team we had at the house tonight we’re just fabulous! Their service and attitudes were always accommodating and very positive. The food was just delicious and I had so many of our clients talk about how wonderful everything was. Wanted to send you a big thank you and please send on to Mr. Mattison also!
The only negative that we had to deal with during the evening were the busses not running on schedule – which was very frustrating to me after spending so much time with them organizing and confirming everything. I say all that to say our 2nd group didn’t leave resort till 9:10 pm and were supposed to be here by 8:45 pm. Your staff handled this unfortunate timing perfectly and stayed with no complaints. Just wanted to convey our thanks. If we need to pay overtime or any additional please let me know. I told Peggy I would check with you on this. Thanks again for such a fabulous evening. You all made Keith and I look very good which was very much appreciated. (Wish you had been in charge of the busses too! LOL. ). I loved having it catered. New experience for me but won’t be last. What a great way to entertain!

Our guests are still talking about the food at our wedding. Paul Mattison and his team served over 450 people the most delicious dinners. Plated sit-down dinner and no one waited for anything… and every meal was perfect. Amazing… no one ever remembers the food at a wedding… until now… Thank you Paul and your team.

The best caterer in town hands down! The food was amazing and the guests raved about it. They are professional from day 1. The tasting was over the top and complimentary, the event planners and coordinators were superb, and the staff was so friendly. I cant say enough! Paul Mattison even showed up to my final run through. He was very friendly and had great advice for the flow of the event. At my venue all rentals had to go through Mattisons which made life so much easier. The handled the lighting, chairs, and the black and white dance floor. I didnt have to lift a finger. Thank you to Mattisons!

Please extend my sincere thank you to your entire staff for a job well done! The food was excellent, served on time and the presentation was exactly what we wanted. The on site staff was amazing and they did everything they could do to make our party a success. It was a pleasure working with your company. I would recommend Mattison’s to anyone wanting a quality experience. Again my thanks.

Mattison’s catered our wedding reception and we couldn’t be more pleased! The food was hot, delicious, and plentiful for a buffet feeding almost 200 guests. The staff was wonderful from our tasting to the end of our wedding night!

Mattison’s did an amazing job, both in helping us coordinate our wedding reception, as well as providing exceptional service and food during our wedding reception. As soon as we booked Mattison’s to handle all of the food and drinks at our wedding reception, we were put in contact with Heidi. Heidi walked us through the process, agreed to phone conferences with us after normal business hours, and even had suggestions for types of food and linens for our reception. All of our questions and concerns were addressed very promptly and professionally. Heidi made the stressful period leading up to the wedding as stress free as possible. Mattisons was also wonderful on the day of our wedding. The owner of Mattison’s actually came out to our venue two hours before their scheduled set up time to deliver the linens to give us more time to prepare the decorations for the reception. All of this was prior to the actual wedding reception, where the food and service was perfect as well. Mattisons provided passed hors d’oeuvres for our cocktail hour which all of our guests raved about, as well as an open bar for the entire cocktail hour and reception (the service staff also went above and beyond for our cocktail hour which was not located near the bar location at our venue by walking around platters of different drinks for our guests). The seated dinner was perfect as well. Mattison’s actually brought out a portable kitchen which was set up to the side of our venue (did not negatively impact the venue’s decorations or setting). This allowed for all of our guests to be served freshly prepared entrees (which tasted amazing). Finally, there were no additional costs or extra fees for any of the service. We paid what was quoted to us from day one by Heidi. We even received a small refund from Mattisons after the event for a rental we did not end up needed. I would highly recommend Mattison’s for any catering needs!

Thanks for everything! The entire night was amazing. The food was delicious, the room was wonderfully set up, and the servers were the best. I could not have wanted anything more. Thank you for send the receipt. I was not expecting my family to pay for that part too.

We had a small (20 people) beach wedding and reception at our rental house on Holmes Beach and the Mattison’s team came through big time. Starting with Heidi and her attention to detail with all the planning to the on-site team lead by Katherine to the amazing food and
cake. The service and professionalism was top notch. They handled all the setup of tables, chairs, linen, etc. and cooked all the food on-site. The appetizers of crab cakes, artichoke cakes and shrimp screws were fantastic and a great lead in to the beef tenderloin and blacked grouper that was amazing. The final act was an amazing wedding cake that everyone raved about, including the leftover being the main course for breakfast the next morning I would highly recommend them for your event, big or small.

I just wanted to let you know that the place was just beautifully set up. I loved how everything turned out. The food was amazing and everyone had a wonderful time. You were awesome to work with and we will definitely come there again for another party. Our two servers – May and Cecelia were just outstanding. They were always available for anything we needed. It was an awesome evening with great friends and awesome food. The buffet looked absolutely beautiful. Again, thank you for all of your help and hope to see you again soon.
