“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. “
“He (Chef Paul Mattison) took exceptional care to complement the “Old Florida” style of our venue with hints of southern cuisine on the menu. 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!“

Sarah and Matt’s wedding was perfect! I wish we could do it all again! Thank you for your part in making their day so special. The set up was seamless and professional. Your crew amazing and more than kind. Your food and presentation, perfection. Having on site cooking made all the difference in the world! Mattisons took the worry out of our day and enabled us to thoroughly enjoy our daughters wedding. Our guests commented on how beautiful the stations were, how delicious the food was and how helpful and friendly your staff was. In fact, one local guest said that when they arrived and saw your catering truck they knew it was going to be a spectacular evening. They were right!
And thank you, Paul, for spending your birthday with us. We were blessed by your presence.

Mattison’s was wonderful!! They recently became the resident caterer for Van Wezel, which was my husband and my top venue choice. When I called to set up a meeting it was Chef Paul that called me back and met with us that week. He was able to work within our budget and the food was fantastic!!
My husband and I worked with both Maggie (to set up the original menu) and with Heidi who was the event planner. Both were wonderful. Heidi truly put our minds at ease and helped us put the finishing touches on our event. We also had the pastry chef from Mattison’s make our cake which was as tasty as it was beautiful :)
The event was so well managed, and all the staff at the wedding were so professional and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was perfect. Chef Paul even came over to our table while my husband and I were eating dinner to say congrats. We were beyond impressed.
