The quality and selection of food was amazing, particularly considering they offered twice as much variation for half the price of what we were quoted by other companies. We were able to essentially build our own menu by picking and choosing our favourite items from their various menus. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food, as did we.

Towards the end of dinner service one of the caterer employees noticed that I (the bride) hadn't really been eating and even offered to make me some roast beef sandwiches from the dinner leftovers to leave in the fridge for later; now that's what I call going above and beyond!

They were incredibly easy to work with both during the planning of the wedding, and on the day of. The were professional, and easy to work with. If you are looking for the perfect caterer that offers great food and variation at an affordable price, the Dutchman's Caterers are the ones for you.

Although the food tastes amazing and we had good feedback from family and friends, the staff does not communicate well enough if you have specific requirements. As a vegetarian bride, we opted to have some of the food without meat in it. You would think since the bride is a vegetarian they would pay attention to that, but on the big day, what was supposed to be meat-free was filled with meat. When I said something to a staff, they looked completely confused.
Also, while we were taking pictures, our MC informed us that they wanted to charge us extra for "being late" as we weren't inside at 5. In our update communications, we had agreed to push back dinner until 530, allowing us to have more time for pictures. Way to stress out an already stressed out bride by not looking over the itinerary!
And the last thing... in our contract, we said that we would require uncorking and serving of wine (price included). When my father-in-law presented staff with the wine, they refused it because there were bartenders on the premise (keep in mind we had 2 bartenders hired for 100 guests). They insisted that the bartenders run around to tables to pour while also mixing drinks, which cost my father-in-law an extra $50 to pay the bartenders.
Now when I emailed the Dutchman's following my big day, they didn't get back to me for a week. Then I received an email from the head chef who simply apologized for the non-vegetarian friendly menu, saying that they prepare meals based on what they usually do and that from now on, if there are special requirements, they will have someone write on the front of the contract in big words to alert the staff. In my opinion they should be reading through the contracts to ensure everything is perfect and as requested. He then said that his staff did not refuse the wine, implying that we were lying. That was the only kind of apology I received.
So basically: food excellent, service not so much.

Amazing! People are still talking about how amazing the food was at our wedding - which was so important to us! Having gotten married on the thanksgiving long weekend - we really wanted to host a big thanksgiving dinner for our friends and family. The Autumn Harvest Buffet fit that bill perfectly. From the turkey and ham, to the amazing stuffing and scalloped potatoes and delicous salads... we couldn't have been happier. The dessert buffet also got rave reviews from our guests... many had wished they had gotten leftovers! Tina and Mike were great to work with and were very attentive to our needs, especially mine seeing as I have a dairy allergy. Its so refreshing to find a caterer that takes so much pride in what they do, and you can taste it in the food they produce. No doubt would we recommend them to anyone.

The rave reviews from all of our guests at our wedding are a testament to the food quality & taste! Both my husband and I thought the food was one of the most important things at our wedding as it was one of the largest costs - yet Dutchmans was very reasonably priced! The food was unbelievable and we couldn't be happier with our decision to use them as our caterer. We loved the fact that the company has been around for a long time and that it is family owned and run. I would use them again for sure!

Food was good. Working with Mike was fine. He's a very pleasant person. They're not so flexible on the menu or price. Food was displayed wonderfully and got many compliments on looks and taste.
Service on our wedding day was lacking! They didn't place the favours on the table, and when the mother of the bride asked the catering staff present to do so, they said they would. However, they carried on drinking their coffee so that the mother of the bride and a groosman finally did it for them. They also didn't place the wine on the table. Again, they were asked and said they would do so before the reception started. Well, the reception was starting and that's why they were asked! Again, a family member had to step in and put wine on the tables. They moved the box with the wedding cake and put in on the ground. Fortunately it was o.k.!
Overall I'd give them an "o.k." rating. Good food, but unfortunately some ditzy catering staff. Hope you get the good ones!
