We stand by our commitment to you ~ using only the freshest ingredients and food created exclusively for you by Chef Larry and his staff. It is our honor to be a part of your special event and your memories.


Simply Gourmet catered my wedding 10 years ago. I still have family and friends raving about how good the food was.

Chef Larry, Jamie and their team are the epitome of professional. They deliver to the finest detail. I have worked with them on more than one occasion, every time I am blown away. They are my go to caterer.

Choosing Simply Gourmet was a grand slam. All my guests talked about was how great the food was. I will use them again and again for all my parties and events.

Simply Gourmet did a fantastic job catering a party to our friend’s house. The food was fantastic, fresh, and delicious. The server, Stephanie, made our event even more pleasant. They accommodated my request for vegan/vegetarian food as well. I highly recommend this company to anyone in the Bradenton/Sarasota areas.

I contacted Simply Gourmet to provide catering for a birthday party for my father. I had to coordinate the food and logistics from long distance and the people from Simply Gourmet made the process seamless and were very communicative throughout the process. The food was beyond outstanding! The options for menu items was vast and the execution was top notch. All of the guests raved about the food and we couldn't have been more pleased with the entire process working with this company. Highly recommend Simply Gourmet for your catering needs.

We had a perfect experience with Simply Gourmet. Jamis was super helpful and flexible throughout the planning phase for my celebration dinner party for 12 people. Stephanie was a great combination of on-site chef, bartender, server and cleaner-upper. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.

Our experience with Simply Gourmet was absolutely excellent from first communication to completion of our event. All communication was timely, friendly, and clear. Jamie provided terrific suggestions throughout the planning process and checked in the day before the event to be sure all details were correct. Shannon and Steph took care of our party and were incredibly thoughtful and made sure everything was perfect. The food was delicious. Thank you so much!

We could not have been happier about the way our wedding went and how amazing of a job Simply Gourmet did. They supplied all tableware and catering for our wedding in March 2021. We had some last minute changes to our timeline given some delays and they were able to roll with the punches and deliver the most amazing meal and catering service. Every part of the meal was awesome. We completely forgot that they delivered the appetizers to our table (since we were busy taking photos during cocktail hour!) and were so pleasantly surprised when those arrived! Simply Gourmet delivered exemplary customer service and were awesome to work with every step of the planning process. Delicious food, amazing service, and reasonably priced especially for the amazing value they provide. We can't thank them enough and highly recommend their service.
