Dear Jackie and Charlie:
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the absolutely delicious food that you catered for my niece’s shower held on Saturday. I cannot begin to express how much I appreciated your preparation of everything but also the plethora of compliments the staff at “Ramona’s Table” received! The chicken salad was scrumptious. The fruit salad was colorful, fresh and delicious, and stuffed tomatoes were absolutely the talk of the town! I want you to know that my Mom and myself promoted you heavily and we hope that the word will spread as to just what a wonderful restaurant you have. Not only is the food tops on our list but the two of you make the whole process of planning both enjoyable and relaxed. Cheers to the staff at Ramona’s! Lucky for Gaslight Village!

With gratitude,
Tom and Patty Sprich

Best Wishes,

Thanks to you, Joe, and your entire staff for providing such excellent food and service to our outing last evening. I’ve received many compliments on the food and how smoothly everything went. You do an incredible job and the “made from scratch” food was enjoyed by all.
It was a pleasure working with you and I would recommend Ramona’s Catering at any given opportunity.

Charlie & Jackie,
Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. Our employees all loved the food you delivered on our first day in the new office. Now it’s our job to make sure we all visit you regularly and purchase a lot of meals.


Jackie….Everything was fabulous! Thank you! I will be spreading the word about your business….well done!


Hi Jackie,
It was excellent!!! Everyone raved about the food, especially co-workers that came in from the Detroit office. Kept saying “we never have good food like this at our events”.
You guys are rock stars and take good care of me, thank you.
I will be in touch.

Dear Ramona’s Table,
Thank you for the delicious food you catered for our party. Our guests raved… too bad I couldn’t take the credit! Everything from the carrot cake to the baked French toast to the egg/sausage skillet was delicious! Thank you for making our party so easy and such a success!

Dear Jackie & Charlie­ –
I can’t believe you drove our carrot cake all the way to Saugatuck! Talk about customer service!! As I said about your food, bathrooms, cleanliness, and now customer service, on a scale of 1-10 you get a 20!

I plan on writing you a handwritten note to thank you for the wonderful service and delicious food. Everyone raved about everything! It was delicious and just the right amount, with some left over for the next day! I want to thank you for your friendliness and professionalism and will certainly highly recommend Ramona’s Catering to anyone seeking catering services.

Thanks again,

Ramona’s Table,
We would like to thank you for the wonderful catering service you provided for our Memorial service supper. Everyone raved about the delicious food! From the initial conversation to the presentation, it was all superb. I would highly recommend RT to anyone in need of catering.

Thanks again for helping us last night. Everyone had a good time and the food was a hit. Enclosed is the check for the extra labor – I guess people just didn’t want to leave!

Take Care

GRDine — Ramona’s Table: A Deli to Rival Cherry Street
Warning: I’m about to gush like a 13 year-old girl after her first kiss. Situated in Gaslight village right next to the high school, Ramona’s Table (http://www.ramonastable.com/) fashions itself as a boutique deli (and caterer) that uses in season produce whenever possible. All of the food is made fresh and the owners certainly know what they’re doing.

The Ambiance
Stepping into the deli you’ll notice the floor plan provides a cozy feel that I would describe as somewhat trendy. Because it is a deli, one wouldn’t reasonably expect a first rate atmosphere, but it was nice enough. It has an outdoor seating area to the side of the building.

The Summary
Truly, this deli rivals Cherry Street Deli as the best place in town to grab a sandwich. I really think it’s a matter of time before this place becomes better known, but I guess you can never really tell with these things. I realize the post sounds a little like an advertisement, but I don’t care: its food is truly exceptional. If I were to order catering, I would without a doubt pick this place since they pair with Martha’s Vineyard (Martha’s does the beverages). -TM
