BABY SHOWER OVERJOYED!!!!

By:CristinaN

I had L-Eat Catering cater a baby shower that I hosted this past weekend.
Let me tell you....EVERYONE enjoyed the food and the beverages. People kept complimenting how the food was so tasty, the portions were just right, the presentation was wonderful and the Chilled Cranberry Punch & Apple Cider was refreshing.
Quite a few people did ask who the caterer was and I recommended them to Renee Foote. She was amazing! So helpful with suggestions and was always polite.
I was recommended to L-Eat Catering by my boss and his wife, because they have been using them for a few years for their annual Christmas get-together.
Also I previously did try their food and it is so divine. Believe me....you will never want to stop eating! :)
Thank you for the wonderful experience and I will definitely be using the catering services again.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND AMAZING FOOD

By:Aynsley

L-eat was absolutely the right choice for our wedding. Candice was a pleasure to work with from our first meeting. She was very flexible (I was really worried about keeping cost down), made some quick changes to the menu after our (glorious) tasting, and was willing to make some last minute changes to tables etc. She was understanding and accommodating, and made us feel really comfortable with all of our decisions. The food was amazing, and we are still getting compliments on it. We went for BBQ - ribs, chicken, mac and cheese, slaw, etc, and even the leftovers were perfect two days later. The bar, kitchen and wait staff were also fantastic - enthusiastic, kind and fun. Thank you everyone at L-eat!

AMAZING WEDDING CATERING

L-Eat catered our wedding, and from the first meeting they were so wonderful to work with. We requested travel-themed hors d'oeuvres, and they came up with delicious and creative options that all of our guests raved about. Candice was responsive and easy to work with, accommodating the many changes I wanted to make mid-planning, and allowing us to bring in our own desserts and McDonald's as a midnight snack.
The staff was friendly and efficient, but did have to be told to be quiet as they were making a lot of noise during the ceremony.
Many guests said that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.

BEST CATERING EXPERIENCE EVER

My fiancée and I were very pleased with the job L-eat Catering did at our engagement party in June. We personally dealt with Niki who was extremely helpful planning the event and working with us on the menu. Being a chef myself I definitely had a vision of what I wanted to see, but it was great to collaborate with L-eat and what they could bring to the table. I thought together we came up with a menu that was a perfect blend of Jen and mine's personal favourites with some of their standout items! Our guests raved about the lamb striploin and arctic char main courses, and especially the late night smores station that was setup outside along with a bunch of comfortable chairs. It gave us all a chance to be a bit more informal, relax and enjoy each other's company in the cozy atmosphere

L'EAT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE....

I have worked with Dana from L'eat on a of couple events for some of our most generous donors and influential philanthropists around the city...and I cannot say enough! Namely, her attention to detail is most important to me as I'm an event planner. Whether she is sending a photo of a table with dimensions to ensure we have the correct linens or bringing out a measuring tape to ensure her staff have enough space to work in a kitchen, I know I can always count on her accuracy and reliability.

Last month Dana did a private fundraising dinner at one of our donor's homes and she sent me photos of the table set for dinner and the floral arrangements she'd arranged for as I couldn't be at the dinner. She went over and above to make sure I felt comfortable even though I wasn't onsite - and that is what will ensure I work with L'eat and Dana again!

The food! Right...can't forget the food. When I mention L'eat around this place people go bananas! Such elegant presentation and impeccable taste. L'eat is wonderful at creating proposals that will intrigue and tease your palette! Everything is done with such intricacy and flair! I am so lucky that when I use L'eat that I am confident that not only will the service be completely professional but that the quality and taste of the food being served, will be above and beyond expectations. They certainly align perfectly with our core demographic and never disappoint!

OUT OF THIS WORLD WEDDING DINNER!

A fabulous meal, beautifully presented, impeccably served- L'Eat far and away exceeded all expectations! Under your control, Candice, and with discrete and thorough supervision by Shannon, your servers both looked and performed as professionals. They made the room look beautiful, and put us at our ease, knowing all was looked after.
Our guests raved - "best wedding dinner ever" was a frequent comment. The gazpacho was one of the best ever tasted, the salmon fabulous, and you rose to the occasion and made a superb strawberry shortcake.
I can't thank you enough for a wonderful wedding dinner.

THANK YOU!

Planning an event can be stressful because there are so many details to think of - and nothing makes or breaks an event more than the food! I have been working with Dana for years because she takes the stress out of the catering. She always comes up with fantastic menus and is on top of every detail from quotes to planning to staffing the day of. Thanks for your help. I will be in touch soon!

BEST PARTY WE HAVE EVER HAD!

Thanks to Dana Ryckman-Kelly we had the perfect celebration for our sisters 40th birthday. Dana planned and executed an unforgettable party. The food was amazing and creative, the décor was sophisticated and fun and the staff were friendly and professional. She thought of everything including renting heat lamps to ensure our party could stay outside into the night.
I would highly recommend Dana and L-EAT Catering if you want a stress free and creative party!

EVERYONE RAVED ABOUT THE EXCEPTIONAL FOOD!

By:Haley Lamacraft

L-eat Catering just did a fantastic job at an event our company held this past Tuesday for a breakfast brunch. I personally dealt with Renee Foote who was extremely helpful and professional while deciding on our menu selections and what would suit our needs best. The food was delicious! From freshly made smoothies, to make your own omelette and fresh baked goods, everyone who made it to the event raved about how exceptional the food tasted! The staff was very friendly and professional. Renee chose floral arrangements that really brought the atmosphere to life! We have worked with her in the past and were extremely satisfied with the wonderful job she and the staff had done - will definitely look into L-eat catering for future events!

THE PROCESS WAS EASY & WORRY FREE!

By:Tami

All was amazing - the bagels on the poles was a real presentation hit at Temple Sinai. It was a pleasure working with you and thank you for making the process easy and worry free. Your professionalism and expertise was greatly appreciated. As well, the L-eat Catering staff on the day was extremely hard working, professional and very pleasant. Look forward to doing business again in the future.

Thanks for the review Tami! L-eat Catering is always happy when we can take the pressure off the host and make the process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible! We look forward to catering another Toronto event for you in the future:)

AWESOME FOOD, AMAZING STAFF!

Everything was absolutely wonderful. The food was awesome, the staff were amazing, and so many guests commented on everything. The room from the morning was transformed into a totally different look for the evening, and it was spectacular! Thanks for everything, we could not be happier:)

OVERJOYED WITH THE RESULTS OF OUR WEDDING!

We used L’eat to cater our 350-person wedding and we were overjoyed with the results. L’eat handled our affairs with professionalism and understanding. The planning process was as smooth as can be, with L’eat explaining all the intricate details of the menu and informing us of all the possible options. L’eat was there when we needed them, responding to our questions and emails promptly, putting together the floorplan and making any revisions that were necessary. L’eat described what food items were in season at the time of our wedding and even provided valuable advice on the types of dishes to use to accentuate the food. They were patient and respectful with us, in handling our many questions! Food is the main “make or break” of any wedding and our food turned out even more wonderful than expected. The L’eat staff were always upbeat and friendly. They were a pleasure to deal with. We also used L’eat for several smaller events surrounding our wedding, all of which were handled with the same helpfulness and classiness from the staff.

MENU WAS DELICIOUS AND PRESENTED WITH FLAIR

What a great wedding! The décor and the floral arrangements were elegant, the band was hot and the cuisine was delicious. From the sensational appetizer, (especially created for us by your talented chef) to the main course which was scrumptious, to the beautifully plated dessert; everything was delicious and presented with creativity and flair. It truly was a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was, and how innovatively it was presented. Let's not overlook the staff who were very professional in their performance. They were efficient and attentive to all the guests. The whole evening ran very smoothly. Most of all, my sincere thanks to Deirdre. It was a pleasure working with her. She was patient and delightful and very tuned into what the bride's vision was for her special day.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL FOR MY DAUGHTER'S WEDDING

By:lmarin

When I first contacted L-eat Catering I wasn't quite sure what to expect as I've always had an interest in food but never catered an event before. The team guided me through the process which was 8 months in the making, from the initial phone call until my daughter's wedding day. There was no detail left untouched and I really loved creating the menu from scratch! Our family has very specific tastes and making sure there was something for everyone to enjoy was of utmost importance. We would definitely use L-eat Catering again for our next event, they are a bit pricier but you get what you pay for!

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, YOU MADE THE WEDDING A FIRST-CLASS AFFAIR

By:Carey & Jordana

I’ve been wanting to write you guys for a while. A few weeks have now passed since the wedding and the dust has settled. Jordana and I got back last week from our honeymoon in Bali. I wanted to tell you that Jordana and I and our families were so incredibly happy with the wedding and the way the food turned out. Everyone was raving about L’Eat, I even got a few comments of “this is the best chicken I’ve ever eaten” (and I’m not saying this just to butter you up, no pun intended!). When I think back to the whole L’Eat experience – our various meetings, the tasting dinner, the way we treated at Paese on King St, our negotiations back and forth, the constant changes to the tables and floor plan, the meeting with Judy Stein at Temple, etc, I can safely say two things:

1. We were high maintenance clients and probably drove you guys slightly insane!
2. All of you handled our affairs with such patience, class, understanding and professionalism. You always responded to our emails promptly – you were there when we needed you. You explained the intricate details of the menu and detailed all the possible options. You sent us constantly updated drafts of your proposal when we wanted to make changes. You catered to all our special requests and needs, and met rule number one in business: Give the customer what they want! You treated us with respect. You saved our butts when we forgot the kosher wine! The list goes on and on. You were always upbeat and a pleasure to deal with. Food is definitely the make or break of the wedding, and you guys rose to the occasion. And yes, I’m glad you told us to pay a little more for the big main course large flat bowl (which held the “jus” very well!!).

I think the staff did a good job too, as Jordana and I had our own personal waiter who pushed my chair in every time I sat down!

The bottom line is that when you do a great job and you treat someone well, it comes back to you in spades. I can tell you I’ll make a point of coming in to Paese and I’m sure we’ll be using you guys for our future events and functions. Not to mention recommending you! If you ever need a reference (not that you would) or some kind of review written (on your website, etc), I’ll be happy to do so.

I am so glad we chose to use you guys. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything, you made the wedding a first-class affair. We appreciate it so much.

This is still one of L-eat Catering's favourite reviews of all time! It was honest, funny, and provided the greatest detail of how L-eat treats our clients throughout the planning process of a Toronto wedding. In many cases this a 6-month to a full year relationship built over time, and starts with the initial inquiry to the actual day of the wedding. We were very happy with how delighted Carey & Jordana were with their wedding and that their guests were raving about the food. Hopefully we'll work with this wonderful couple again soon!

THE KUDOS ARE STILL COMING IN, SHE'S A KEEPER TONY

By:Ruth

This note is to formally congratulate L-eat in having a professional like Niki as their event planner. She is quite simply outstanding! We met with three highly reputed firms and from the beginning Niki stood out in terms of needs assessment, creativity and plain practical reasoning. She gave us ideas no other firm offered and in the process educated us and ultimately made it the best event we could hold! To say that we were paranoid and constantly worried is not an understatement but she always dealt with me in a positive and patient manner - no mean feat! She has poise, grace and is a professional asset to your organization! My daughter's wedding brunch was magical thanks to her. The kudos are still coming in. She's a keeper Tony!

CALM, KIND AND EXPERIENCED

By:Matthew & Kim

Dana- you were such a delight to work with. I really enjoyed getting to know you and planning my wedding together with you. I could not have asked for a more calm, kind, and experienced ally every step of the way. You're amazing and I hope we can plan something spectacular again soon. I told Tony you are a shining star!

ENDLESS COMPLIMENTS ABOUT OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT!

By:Laura

We couldn’t keep up with the compliments we received from our guests about our 20th anniversary event. You would have been thrilled to hear how much everyone enjoyed the venue, the food and the service. Thank you from all of us at Gaggi Media for making this such a special evening for us. You were very accommodating and very professional. We will certainly recommend L-eat Catering to our friends and families and hope to do more business with you in the future.

PROMPT, EFFICIENT, AND SUPREMELY KNOWLEDGABLE

Dana - a little message to compliment you and the L-eat Catering team!

You were prompt, efficient and supremely knowledgeable during the planning process. And your team was pleasant, professional and spot-on. I have this tendency to micro-manage, but Caroline and team put me at ease so I could just sit-back and enjoy the day. I greeted them at 8:30 and by 9:30 the room was so beautifully arranged.

You helped put together a wonderful brunch menu - good call on the citrus salad and blintzes - and the food was fabulous. A particular praise for the smoked salmon - I will always crave it.

Dana, it was such a pleasure working with you on Max's Bar Mitzvah.

 You were extremely responsive and returned my calls and emails promptly. You were creative and were always willing to make changes to the menu until we got it just right! You understood my budget and helped me stay within it.
 Your calm and easy going attitude turned a big task into a wonderful experience.

 The presentation you created was beautiful and the food tasted amazing.


Thanks for all your help, patience, guidance, support and hard work.
