What Our Clients Say
"Karen, thank you to you and your amazing staff for helping to create the wedding of my dreams! The food was phenomenal, the guests raved about it....especially one sweet little girl who was hungry and couldn't wait 🙂 Thank you for going above and beyond, Ezra and I are truly grateful!!"
"The poke bar at my 60th party was one of the favorites for my guests. Everything was my favorite, hard to choose with all the fabulous food! Best caterer I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Thank you Mai Oui!"
"Mai Oui, Erica and Kevin hit it out of the park yet again! Many thanks for everything! Food, presentation, professional AND friendly....the best combo ever. Until the next party... ;-)"
C and P
"Karen and her team exceeded my expectations not only in the delicious quality food at our charity event but the level of service and the care and love she and her team put into every detail. You can tell that this is a labor of love for Karen -- Mai Oui catering made me look good. I will never use another caterer as long as I am planning any event. I cannot be happier and my guests were raving about the food and service. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Love Mai Oui!"
"Mai Oui! Gourmet went above and beyond expectations for our wedding. Not only was Karen an absolute joy to work with, but on the big day, her staff were so friendly and helpful and we got nothing but compliments from the guests about the food and service. My husband and I came into her office without a clue in the world of what kind of food we wanted but she helped us craft a unique menu that infused the Indian, Japanese, and American cultures of our families and the food was nothing short of amazing. Karen was so attentive to our needs and she even helped me with some day-of coordination! She made sure the bride and groom had their food first, their glasses were never empty, and she stuck to the timeline of the night while keeping a smile on her face the entire time. Her staff did a great job with set up and clean up...and even took a photo in our photobooth and signed our photo-guest book which I LOVED! 5 stars all around for this catering company!!!"
"We cannot begin to express how overjoyed we were with you and your services! Everything at our wedding came together perfectly, looked amazing and tasted heavenly! You guys went above & beyond our expectations, not only with the quality of the food & superb service, but with your planning, event services and décor provided for the food stations! Everyone loved the meal at our wedding! You all have an amazing team and we are so thrilled we chose you as our caterer! Thanks again!"
Kaylie & Evan
"We must thank you for a wedding that went off without a hitch. Our food was absolutely amazing and I actually sat down and ate! Everything was perfect, thank you again so much!"
"Mai Oui Gourmet was fantastic! I challenged them to think outside the box for a corporate appreciation luncheon and they exceeded all expectations. The food, presentation and service were perfect. I have always used Mai Oui for my catering needs in Jacksonville. They make me look good!"
Starwood Hotels & Resorts
"My Husband and I could not be more pleased with the catering Mai Oui provided for our wedding. We chose a venue that did not have a kitchen and was much more challenging for a caterer serving dinner to 200 people, but they seemed to do it without any problems. Karen was a pleasure to work with and was very accommodating. We received many compliments on the food and even had guests notice how beautiful they decorated their tables to match our décor. I would recommend Mai Oui go anyone!"
Stephanie & Josh
"I already miss you after having spent over a year discussing Leigh Elizabeth’s wedding. You were wonderful and you did so much more than catering. You are truly an event planner. As you know, I was very nervous about all the plans and everything going on the time. You made it all happen and were so calm in everything you did. Now for the food. If I hear “it was the best food I have ever had at a wedding” one more time, I would think all of the guests have been told to say the same things. They are correct; you would never have known the meal was prepared for 230 people. It was as fresh as if you were doing a dinner party for ten. Leigh Elizabeth is my only child, but if I had more daughters, I would return to you. For any events, I plan to turn to you."
Susan H. Black
"When we started planning our wedding, my husband and I both agreed that the caterer would be our most important vendor. From the moment we sat down with Mai Oui, we knew we had found an incredible caterer. We worked with Karen to create the most incredible menu. Mai Oui even stayed late at our wedding to bring out delicious duck fat French fries and other fired goodies for a late-night snack. Everyone who mentioned the food said it was by far the best wedding for they ever had. If you want to be confident that you and your guests are in good hands, you should hire Mai Oui for your events."
Angela and Mike
"We thank you for the precise execution of the party plan for the ATSI Open House / Anniversary Event on April 27th 2012, particularly coordinating the last minute venue change. Our guests really enjoyed themselves. By all accounts the food was excellent and high quality. The logo cookies were such a nice surprise too, thank you! We appreciate all of your hard work in creating an event that exceeded our expectations! We look forward to working with you in the future."
