Hello Ric,

Thank you from Chris and I to you and all of your staff. I regret that you and I didn't get to meet, but we did meet Chef Sammy and he was the best!

All of the guests raved about the food. Everything was served on time, the food was hot and tasty and the service was great. I really appreciate how easy you were to communicate with, leading up to the event. It made everything so seamless for us.

If you are ever looking for someone to provide a reference for Elite Catering in the future, I would be happy to do so.

Thanks again :)
Steph & Chris

Hello Chef Ric,

Thank-you!! The food was excellent, and the vegan meals were also great. There were many compliments on the food especially the roast beef. My mom was also impressed with the Yorkshire puddings. You can keep the recipe and add it to your menu as "Annette's Yorks" lol!!!

Thanks again!!


Hi Ric,

I was so happy with the food and the service. I heard nothing but positive feedback from my guests! You made it an even easier day with your awesome staff.

Thanks again,

Jamie and I would like to thank you and your staff so very much for all your hard work on our wedding day.

The meal was absolutely delicious!! The prime rib was so tender that you could cut it with your fork, and the serving portion size was perfect. The presentation was beautiful, and your staff was very professional in serving. Everybody raved about the meal. My sister, who is a chef, gave 2 thumbs up and said if she had 4 thumbs.....

The table set up was lovely, thank you for going the 'extra mile' for us and thank you for setting me up with Meghan- our black and white theme just fell into place. We had an absolutely wonderful and magical evening Rick.

Thank you for everything!!

With much appreciation,

Jamie and Jacky Helmer

Thank you, thank you , thank you!!

What else can I say?

The room looked great, the food was amazing.. The appetizer table was just the perfect thing before the main meal. The salad was delicious and I can't believe that the prime rib was so tender you didn't even need a knife!

Everything you said you would do, you did.
Your staff was courteous, friendly, helpful and I could always find someone if I needed to. I couldn't have asked for a better evening.

Please give your staff and yourself a great big pat on the back you really deserve it.

I wanted to thank you again for the great spread you prepared last Saturday.

All of the guests raved about everything you provided. There was something to please everyone, and the amounts were perfect.

Thank you for helping to make my birthday celebration a success.

Best regards,

Nina Chatterjee

The event went very well! The catering was absolutely fantastic.

Everything was very professional, well displayed as well as tasty.

All the guests would agree with me, I'm sure (people were going back for 5th and 6th plates!).

I will definitely keep you in mind for future events!

Thank-you very much for a job well done!

We would just like to let you and your staff know that you showed professionalism in the way you catered our very special event on our wedding day.

Your team were very organized, and efficient along with being amiable.

We would certainly recommend Elite Catering to our friends and family in the event that they needed some catering in the near future without reservation.

Thank you once again,

Tammy & Scott Amesbury

I wanted to thank you for all of your help in setting up the dinner.

The passengers really enjoyed the dinner and entertainment and it was an excellent end to the tour.

Thanks again,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you so much for all that you did for us. The food was incredible and everyone loved it. We were so impressed with you and your staff!!!

We're already looking forward to next year in the hopes that you will be available again :)

On behalf of the Ottawa Goth Syndicate, thank you again!

We were extremely happy with the meal that was provided our members during our trip to Ottawa. Rick was wonderful to work with, caring and kind and was willing to work with us to provide a lovely meal. Rick was able to work within our meagre budget and somehow worked magic to feed the 134 people who showed up.

I have no hesitation to recommend Elite Catering to anyone wanting a catered meal and I know Rick and his staff are extremely polite, courteous, and gracious.

Everything was great…the food and the service! Thank you for making our night very enjoyable



Just a note to thank you and your staff for creating a marvellous supper for the guests at our daughters wedding.

The prime rib was outstanding as were the glazed carrots and vegetarian penne. The cold trays at the end of the evening were also a big hit with the guests.

We have received numerous compliments expressing how great the food was. It was a simple but great presentation

You were gracious and understanding and gave us all a sense of assurance as we planned all the minute details.

Thank you so much for being a great part in an unforgettable evening

Mark and Susan Pomeroy
