Savoury chef were simply incredible!

Kyle and his team performed amazingly from the first time we met them, all the way to the day of our wedding, and knocked it right out of the park.

They were professional, attentive, courteous and sensitive to the needs of our guests, and we could not have asked for a better caterer.

Thank you so very much for making our wedding the incredible event that it was!

When we first set out with the daunting task of planning our wedding we knew right away that the type of food we served to our guests would be of utmost importance. We were looking for a farm to table experience that would exceed our guests expectations.

I began calling several catering companies that we felt would fit with our vision and was immediately blown away with Savoury Chef.Their prompt and professional response quickly made me realize that they were who my husband and I wanted to be part of our day.We worked closely with Alison who answered all of our questions with clarity,professionalism and patience. She was very transparent with every detail pertaining to our menu selections,rentals and cost. This was great as we did not have any surprises along the way.

As you can imagine,planning a wedding is a lot of work and there will be things that you forget to do. It was wonderful that Alison was constantly thinking of everything that we had over looked which made for very smooth planning.

I woke up the morning of my wedding like every other bride....incredibly nervous. I can honestly say, knowing Alison would be there over seeing everything calmed me down tremendously.Everything from rental setup to catering was executed perfectly!

Our experience with Savoury Chef was nothing short of AMAZING! Our family and friends are still raving about the quality of food that was served. I am so happy we entrusted Savoury Chef with the most important meal we will ever have.

THANK YOU...THANK YOU Alison and the entire Savoury Chef team! You made our wedding truly memorable.

We were married at Science World, a venue with no kitchen, so we looked for the best of the best when it came to catering. The staff at Savoury was extremely professional to deal with, put our minds at ease, and we were 100% confident in our decision to spend $19,500 for 150 people. We had champagne service for the ceremony, wine service and canapes upon arrival to reception, a 3 course meal, and bar service for the evening. Nothing luxurious, but we were promised the service to our guests would be outstanding. Unfortunately, the service on our wedding fell extremely short of our expectations for that investment. There were no servers with wine on trays greeting guests when they arrived. The lineup at the bar was crazy for everyone that had arrived at once. Glassware ran out at the bar so my Mom was drinking wine out of a coffee mug at 9pm. Nobody was told to keep their glasses until it was too late. They told us we ran out of white wine so we sent our wedding coordinator to get 2 more cases and the next day not only were those cases still there unopened, but a case of the original white was there too. Communication was horrible as the staff seemed extremely overwhelmed. Thank goodness for our fabulous coordinator as we had no idea of any issues until the next day. The food was fantastic and came out timely at the head table, but the next day at the gift opening we were told other tables had a 15 minute break between the hot dish potatoes and the meats, so that's all they had for that time. To top it off, the following week while on honeymoon we were sent an additional bill for $161 to cover the "extra staff" they had kept on. With all the shortfalls I was extremely shocked to see this drop in the bucket bill. All gratuities were included in the 20K bill too, at 18%, so we paid $1350 for gratuities to the staff for service that was far from superior.

We really enjoyed working with Kyle & his team. He was very engaged in the process, from the food tastings to the tweaking of menus, and his team really delivered delicious food for both the reception and brunch events.

Taryn and the team at Savoury Chef made our wonderful celebration truly unforgettable. We were so happy to have reached out to them when we started planning the wedding, only to have our wedding planner - who we hired after we realized planning a wedding was not our forte! - also highly recommend them on her own once she took over.

Taryn and team's friendliness and great service, attention to detail, absolutely amazing food, and stunning presentation impressed everyone, and our guests are still talking about the menu over a year later! They provided an organic, local, fresh, seasonal menu that truly was special and tailored to us. They even went out of their way to provide alternate menus for our guests with special dietary restrictions (shellfish, gluten, wheat but not gluten, vegetarian, vegan, "allergic to garlic, onions, tomatoes, peppers", etc) without complaint, and with style.

Most of our friends can’t remember the food served at their weddings; we remember every bite from ours! Savoury Chef pulled off a plethora of canapes to start the day, and then served a multi-course plated menu to 120 of our guests--all without the convenience of a full kitchen or bar. They were on time, on budget, and most importantly the food was absolutely delectable.

Thank you for being such a big part of why our day was so perfect!

Our tasting was great, and Savoury Chef was very flexible about allowing us to substitute menu items from one set buffet menu into another one. On the day of, dinner wasn't quite ready to go when we were, however. I don't think the guests noticed much, but those of us who knew the schedule did. The cocktails for cocktail hour were ready and delicious, though, so people definitely weren't starving from the slightly delayed dinner. And speaking of cocktail hour, the servers were very good about finding me (the bride) and making sure I got each hors d'oeuvre as it came out, so I didn't go hungry while photos were happening. As for taste, things weren't as good on Wedding Day as they had been at the tasting, but they were still very good. One thing that was a little disappointing was that we'd asked for extra orange sauce for the orange-corriander chicken, so that people could pour some extra onto their chicken breasts, but that didn't materialize on the actual day. I also think they underestimated the amount of beef they would need, as they ran out of that, while having a lot of extra chicken. But everyone got beef who wanted it; they just didn't get to have seconds.

Savory Chef did a fabulous job catering our wedding. Looking back, the food served at our wedding remains one of our favourite memories of the day! All of our guests had their fill of food and many commented that Chef Taryn served the best wedding buffet they'd eaten. Moreover, we had a number of guests with dietary restrictions and Savory Chef went above and beyond to ensure that these guests' needs were met with a meal matching the top quality of the other food. We also appreciate that Savory Chef focuses on local, sustainable, and organic ingredients. Finally, the professionalism of the staff was top-notch and we even received complimentary emails from other vendors praising Chef Taryn and the Savory Chef staff. They were all attentive and accommodating and made our day run smoothly. We wholeheartedly recommend Savory Chef to cater your wedding - we were certainly happy to have them with us on our big day.
