Ashley was our co-ordinator and was absolutely fantastic. We planned the event from the US and so it was important to have someone who was responsive and understanding about what were the important things for us. She worked around our travel schedule and even if she was not always able to get us the answer that we wanted, she got us an answer that was a compromise. Service on the day of was fantastic, food was fantastic (turned out better than the tasting), and overall the venue was beautifully decorated. Everyone had a blast.

Dealing with Ashley was an total pleasure. She responded to our calls and emails promptly (even at 7 am!), with professionalism; didn't bat an eye with some of our more difficult requests. We had ample access to the venue for set up and the next day to retrieve any personal items. We were a little skeptical at the tasting, but they far exceeded our expectations at the wedding - which is the most important event. All of our guests were impressed with the quality of food, the amount of food and the service. My husband was impressed with the cost - somewhat lower than we originally estimated. We became involved with Feastivities because of the venue my son and his bride chose, and we are so happy that we did! Well done, Ashley (et al)!!

From the moment I met with the Team at Feastivities I knew there was no one else I wanted to have for my wedding. Meeting Sue, Peter, and Ashley was so delightful. I knew I was in the greatest hand for our wedding. When we did our tasting, we were blown away by the presentation of the food.... but the taste..... there are no words to describe how amazing it was! Our guests have not stopped raving about the quality, and the amount of food! They also offer all-inclusive packages, which is great for people like my husband and I when we didn't know where to start. Thank you so much for all that you did creating our Dream Wedding!

Stay away. We cannot deny that the food was good; however, everything else was a disaster. There are too many issues for us to list them all here. The owner Peter was incredibly unprofessional and disrespectful when things started to go wrong. The set-up and service was sloppy. Like a used car salesman, they will promise you the world, but fail to deliver. If you do use them, get absolutely every detail in writing (and even that may not be enough for them to honour it).
PS. Warning - if your package includes centrepieces, they will refuse to provide them for the head table.

I think every weddings I've been to, the food looked good but it sucked in tasting/ flavor. But my wedding, I knew I had to have feastivities. The food looked amazing, and it was in a very creative manner like one of the appetizer we had was a spoon made of tortilla chip with fillings in the spoon. The meals were great and it was just as was on wedding day when making mass amount for guests. Their service is amazing as well, always responds and does everything you need or request. Doug and Meghan are amazing to work with. We saw Our guests literally cleaned out their plates when we were making our table rounds to talk to guests. I didn't even have more than 5 bites of a meal at a friends wedding I went to, but I love my meal and our guests clearly enjoyed every ounce of it. And even one of our guest who works in catering and food was very impressed with it.

Attention to detail killed this for us. Of the several courses served, none were done as described in the menu. The real kicker was that they ignored the allergy list... we asked that certain items not be served at all. They took that as "don't serve these items to specific people" ... day of the event? They didn't even bother with the list.

The served the groom food he was allergic to. Everything else pales in comparison. I'm struggling to find the words to describe the frustration, anger, disappointment experienced.

It wasn't a smooth process communicating before the event, and even worse trying to sort things out after the event.
Would not recommend to anyone.

I was extremely disappointed in Feastivities service, and I would suggest that any potential bride and groom take their business elsewhere. I will try to keep my experiences brief:

Their literature about the 'packages' was completely confusing, and would differ depending on whether you looked at the website, came to an open house, or talked to someone in person.

I made an unrelated phone call to discuss some detail, and through that phone call discovered that we were not being provided with chairs for our guests, or centerpieces for the head table. Had I not made a call to them, we would have been standing around a bare head table!

We couldn't finalize our menu until a mere 4 weeks before the wedding, which caused a lot of stress as the food was our greatest cost and we had no idea what we were being charged.

The most disappointing event was that during their cleanup, they took and discarded several personal items we had bought and provided ourselves. We were able to recover a box of wine, flowers, a cake knife and some decorations, but Feastivities threw away our caketoppers, which were engraved with our names and had great sentimental value.

Despite all this back and forth in trying to recover our items, they still charged us $10 for a vase one of our guests mistakenly took, and we were never reimbursed for the cake toppers they threw away.

You can do better. Please consider another caterer, Feastivities was entirely unprofessional and managed to make an already stressful time that much harder on us.

On a side note, the florist and DJ they use were excellent and I would recommend them highly:

Peter and his staff are absolutely amazing! They went far beyond our expectations for our reception. They did all the set up and take down which made our day run smoothly. Almost 6 months later, all our guests are still raving about the food. It was so amazing that I even took time to sit down and enjoy dinner (something most brides and grooms fail to do)! They took the time to sit down with us and plan a menu around my peanut allergy, and provided incredible options for our vegetarian and gluten-free guests.
Couldn't imagine having our reception anywhere else!

Our wedding was at the Shiraz Ballroom (Armenian Community Centre) on August 2nd 2014. We were so impressed with the quality service and food provided by Feastivities Catering. The hall was beautifully set and all staff were pleasant and courteous, even when handling some table mixups and/or special requests that arose throughout the evening. The food was delicious and guests were very pleased - not an easy feat when feeding a crowd of 200+ people! (Of course the late night sliders and fries were a huuuuge hit among the younger crowd).

Staff were considerate and helpful throughout the entire planning process and the quality service and food truly set the tone for the night and allowed us to feel relaxed, happy and able to enjoy this special celebration with our family and friends.

I strongly recommend both Feastivities for catering and the Shiraz Ballroom as a venue - you won't be disappointed.
