“The food was wonderful… we were almost fighting over the leftovers on Christmas Day!  The mashed potatoes, the key lime pie, apple tarts and bread pudding were the biggest winners.  However, there was not a bite of anything left that y’all prepared when it was time to leave. (The citrus salsa makes a great salad dressing too.) The arrival night dinner was wonderful also.  Such a huge relief to have supper prepared and delivered after a long day of travel. Thank you for everything. You and all your staff were a joy to work with and we will recommend you to everyone headed your way.”  Rebecca S.


“What can we say other than “First Class” – the food, the presentation, your staff – truly amazing. We had been thinking about our day for over 2 years… to see our vision come to life, flawlessly, was so rewarding. Your attention to detail and customer service leading up to our event made the entire experience so enjoyable!”  Morgan M.


“Mat, before any more time passes, I want to tell you how wonderful it was to meet and work with you.  As I said the night of the reception, I felt like part of the “Rich and Famous” having you and your staff in the kitchen of that wonderful house with the linen table clothes, beautiful arrangements, and glowing candles.  The food was delicious and beyond our expectations and the service just made it better.  Thank you so much for working with us.” Lyn B.- Mother of the Bride “Mathayom goes above and beyond culinary expectations with his blend and delicacy of flavors.  It is a tradition to have Mat cater the Kismet family on New Years Eve, bringing in each year with a delicious five course meal.  We always find that Mat’s gourmet dishes are artfully displayed and give a sensuous, savory taste that lingers in the mouth. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!” Dr. and Mrs. J at Kismet


“Dear Mat,  Thank you again for your help with making our wedding day so memorable.  It was a pleasure working with you and the food was delicious.  Everyone was very impressed!  We look forward to future trips to St. John and hope to eat more of your dishes!”  Shannon and Matt- Bride and Groom“Mat and Jenn, I want to let you know how pleased I was with the dinner you prepared and served to my guests.  The chef and other workers were courteous, professional, efficient, and delightful.  The food was awesome, and everyone who came commented on it.  If you ever need a reference for anyone, I would be more than happy to provide one.  Thanks for helping to make our visit to St. John spectacular!”  Pat S.- Rehearsal Dinner


“Mat, Christy, Tim, Allan and all of the staff at Mathayom- We cannot even begin to put into words how grateful we feel that you were with us on our wedding day. As you know our ceremony was extremely intimate, with only family and dear friends. To have all of your joyful spirits and energy made it seem like you were part of our family. You were a gem to find and we are so blessed to have met you, and have you provide the people most dear to us the most amazing, gorgeous, satisfying meal – which is still topic of conversation a month later. The planning was smooth and stress-free, the attention to detail was superb, and your attitudes about the entire event were so cool and collected it made me calm and eased my mind to know our guests were in the best hands. We are forever grateful for your contribution at our wedding, and I wish for you all the best. Thank you so very much. If you ever find yourself in New York, please be in touch. And if anyone ever needs to talk to a past customer, please send them our way. Peace, Blessings and Thank you.”  Annie C. – Bride on Gibney Beach


“We thought the food prepared for us was OUTSTANDING!!!! The best dinner of our vacation! Every course was wonderful. My father, in fact, does not like lamb, which I didn’t know, so I was worried when I realized that was one of the courses I chose. He was being a sport by trying a bite. He found the lamb so delicious that I think you have converted him into being a lamb lover forever. My family and I have been coming to St John for 15+ years….sometimes we are lucky enough to get down there twice a year. I will DEFINITELY book with you in the future. I can’t say enough great things about the cuisine and the service.”  Maureen M.
“Thank you again for a truly splendid meal. The biggest compliment that I can give you is that my 4 year old couldn’t get enough of your BBQ beef, and she barely strolls outside of the confines of mac and cheese. If I could please be so bold to request a copy of your wonderful cole slaw recipe, that would be outstanding. Having been to the island before, I have already collected one favorite recipe for mango cream cheese French toast, and would love to have another spectacular culinary souvenir from St. John.  Thanks again to you guys. You made our family wedding a dream come true for us all.”  Brian C. – Guest at Beach Wedding


“Thanks to Mat and his staff, we were spoiled with some of the best food we’ve ever put in our mouths”  Jennifer T. – Family Vacation


“We loved our wedding dinner so much that we want you to recreate it for us when we come down next month.”  Les O five months after his Beach Wedding
Dear Mat & St. John Catering Staff, Thank you for making the most memorable day of our lives perfect. You carried out our vision with great expertise and precision.

Michel and David B. – Bride and Groom


“Just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the excellent job you and your crew did at our wedding reception. Everyone agrees that your food was hands down, the best meal we had on the island. It’s also worth noting that you, Casper, and Jeremy were some of the nicest folks we met on the island, which as you know, is no small feat. My only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to have you come back to the house before we had to leave. However, we’ve already started talking about our next trip and those plans will definitely include you. Thanks for everything you’ve done.  It was truly an honor to have you with us as we celebrated our wedding.” Jason B. – Groom
