Dabb's Railroad Hotel, December 19th, 2020

Very Happy with MOC! We were very happy with MOC at our daughter’s wedding. They were very professional and went above and beyond communicating with us pre-event and accommodating our small event during these crazy times. My daughter had hoped to have a hot chocolate bar but we decided to forego any kind of buffet set up in an effort to make the event as safe as possible. MOC still offered our guests some of the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had, topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings! Many guests commented on how tasty it was. The rest of the food (tenderloin and salmon) was excellent, too, and they easily accommodated gluten-free and vegetarian guests. They were very kind, great with our guests, and it took a lot off of my mind, knowing the meal was in such capable hands. The cost initially seemed a bit high, but after getting a better idea of the general pricing for catering, I think they were reasonable, especially considering the quality and service they offer. Highly recommend.

"Excellent caterer! We hired them for our daughter's wedding for October 5th, 2019. The food was wonderful and they did an excellent job with the bride and groom's cakes. I loved the fact that we could get both the meal and the cakes in one place. Plus, not having to worry about finding someone else to cut and serve was a huge help! They did it all! Very professional and always answered our emails and phone calls whenever we had questions. Would highly recommend!"

Best wedding food (and cake) ever! We booked MOC for our wedding reception, per the recommendation of our wedding planner (Donna at The Party Affair) and could not have been more pleased! Their prices are reasonable and their food is absolutely fantastic. Throughout the entire planning process, they were kind, professional, and very prompt in responding to our phone calls and emails. Vickie, Darrel, and Lance went above and beyond in planning our wedding meal. We had multiple special requests (family-style, pasta course for our Italian background, outside alcohol) that they did a wonderful job of accommodating. Our guests were raving about the food, saying it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. And our cake, which was an Italian cream cake, was to die for. We have had so many people complimenting both the meal and the cake for days after the wedding!
As an extra service, we also booked them to deliver sandwiches, chips, and cookies to our hotel pool the day after our wedding for our family and any lingering guests. This was all fantastic as well!
MOC - We can't thank you enough. You're perfect and wonderful and made our wedding food unforgettable!

I rarely write reviews. As a past convention industry executive, I’ve had the opportunity to work with numerous catering companies.

My Own Chef catered my daughter’s wedding. This company and its staff, chef and pastry chef are outstanding. Their menu options are outstanding and interesting, not your usual rubber chicken...Quail appetizers, lavender lemonade, and delicious roasted beef tenderloin and Indian spiced chicken with herb roasted red potatoes and grilled asparagus. Our guests were so very complimentary of the delicious dinner, lovely and delectable wedding cake and the friendly and professional service.

Darryl created an amazing cake from a photo I had. Again, not only was it beautiful, but super moist with the most delicious icing...whereas most wedding cakes look great, but don’t taste good.

Working with the staff was effortless, and fun!

I cannot thank them enough for the quality of food and friendly professional service...all at a reasonable price.

This past weekend we had our daughter's wedding event catered by the amazing team at My Own Chef!! Wow, awesome, delicious, yummy are just a few of the words we heard from our guests at the wedding! 
A few moments at the beginning of the reception it became a little hectic with a few more seats & tables being needed. MOC handled all with class & care as this issue was quickly resolved!
Their staff was polite, attentive and ready to assist, being observant and yet not intrusive in any way. (One team member even jumped in to help me with securing the train on my daughter's dress!!)
We would highly recommend without hesitation this most professional catering company. You could not go wrong using their experienced and well-qualified services for any event you are planning!!

"Thank you for a terrific event!  The bacon bar was one of the highlights of the entire weekend!  We received lots of accolades on all of the food and people raved about the bacon bar.  Along with your great food, your staff was very efficient and friendly.  Thanks again for making our son's rehearsal dinner such a success!"

"I had been to dozens of weddings and never once did I like the food or service.  Well this experience was the exception.  Let me just say I hate buttercream cake and that's exactly what my wife ordered.  It was the best cake I've ever had.  Everyone was raving about it.  Then for the grooms cake we ordered chocolate mousse dessert cups.  Again, amazing!  And the service was second to none!  I honestly felt like an over pampered king.  The beef dinner was utterly PERFECT!  These people know what they're doing! PERIOD!  I can't say enough about their service!  On point is an understatement! Hats off to Holly and the entire gang!  Pastry chef has his act together when it comes to flavor!" ​

"My Own Chef was phenomenal from the beginning.  We looked at several caterers, but MOC was the only caterer that was willing to work with us and developed a menu that we wanted within our budget.  They also provided guidance on what to serve and how much to serve at the cocktail hour and for dinner.  Additionally, it was helpful that they were also able to provide a beautiful & delicious cake (which received tons of compliments from our guests.) I also found out after the wedding that some of our guests were not able to eat raw tomatoes (which we had a few dishes that had raw tomatoes). MOC staff took the time during our reception to prepare dishes for guests' special dietary needs on the spot.  When I found this out, I was incredibly grateful and so thankful that we selected MOC to cater our reception and take care of our guests.  Thank you, MOC for going above and beyond!"
