Client Praises

“Thank you for making our celebration seamless and fabulous. Your staff, food and presentation was perfection! I would happily recommend you services.”

Lisa K.

“Thank you very much for your services at our event this past Wednesday. It was a great success! I have received a lot of positive feedback on your services, the appetizers were exceptional and everyone commented that the caterer would be most welcomed in their homes with the approach of Christmas and New Year’s. All of your staff was very professional and friendly. Jesse did an amazing job at controlling the flow of the appetizers & desserts.”


Jessica W.

“We thoroughly enjoyed having Elle cater our wedding. The food and service were both excellent! Our guests really liked the food, too.”

Alan T.

“Everything was perfect!!! The wait staff was the best!  The food delish and the presentation was fabulous.  Everyone remarked on the food and I did not hear one negative comment, which is amazing.

I am so happy with Elle that I am not even taking quotes from the other company we have used before.  I am thrilled with the quality of the food, staffing, presentation and cost.  The next event we will have Elle cater it for sure.   I was constantly asked if everything was okay, are you happy with everything and even after the event they took our cruiser tables apart and stacked them out of the way.  I was impressed by everyone here.”

Kim S.

“Thank you again for the wonderful lunch… it was lovely and everyone enjoyed it.  As I also mentioned to Natalie, you have wonderful people working with you… they are a pleasure and make the experience even better.”

Kathryn H.

“The evening was a huge hit!  The food was incredible.  The staff so pleasant.  I was thoroughly impressed!  The firm (and in particularly the office manager) was impressed.  We had more then enough food so everyone felt full, certainly did not miss the “meal” and the variety was so nice.

I also love that you provide your own beautiful platters for much of the night – the presentations were so impressive.  I wish I had taken pictures!

“Absolutely amazing!! Family was so impressed with the quality of both food and service. And I was so happy to not be cooking or cleaning up!

The touch of having a menu was really nice too!

So to my delight we will be booking both parties again!!!”


Andrea A.

“The party was a great success and we would like to thank you and your wonderful staff.  The food was AMAZING and staff very friendly.  I know you will be getting referrals from many of our guests!!   I am hosting a bridal shower in the spring and will be in touch about using Elle Cuisine again!!”

Tammy M.

“Thank you, thank you for being our caterers! We were blown away by the wonderful food and service that was provided!! I will make sure I write a glowing review shortly for your website. We are still recovering and tired but I wanted to touch base to let you know how incredible everything was.  SO many people want to use Elle Cuisine for there up and coming events.

Amazing day, Heidi was awesome and so calm!!”

Lisa S.

“Thank you so much for putting together this small event for us with such short notice (at you’re busiest time of year none the less).  Everything was wonderful!  It was great to be able to be in the comforts of home while not sacrificing on service/food.  Will definitely do it again, with more notice of course!

Thanks again.”

Erin S.

“The event was amazing! Thank you very much for the great culinary experience. Your staff was very professional and skilled. Will recommend your services to all of my friends.

Thanks again.”

Kathy S.

“Echoing Joanne’s comments, it was a wonderful evening.  Alex and Heidi were great – it’s clear they truly care about everyone having a fun time.  You can’t fake great service.  Lauren, the meal was spectacular..also you have such a joyful personality that your presentations before each course are the highlights of the evening.  We have friends that fly in from all over the country every year and you are a huge part of that.  We really appreciate that you personally attend this, despite the fact that you’re growing by leaps and bounds and we’re in prime party season!

Many thanks again.”

Greg & Joanne

Now that all the wedding dust has settled and we’re back into routine, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all of your help to perfect our food service.

Everything was delicious, service was great and I heard really good feedback from guests.

Thanks again… I hope you have a great summer and look forward to working with you again!”

Stephanie M.

“The party was wonderful. Thank you for all that you did to plan and execute everything. The staff were excellent, particularly the two bartenders who stayed for the late shift. The food was delicious and we have received lots of compliments from the guests.

Thanks again for everything.”

Donna B.

“I don’t have the words to express how thrilled we are with everything ELLE was responsible for. The food was delicious, the staff were so accommodating, friendly, and professional and Carolee was an absolute privilege to work with. She went above and beyond any expectations we had, and we truly would not have changed a single aspect of the wedding. She not only took care of Andrew and I, but was sure to check in our bridal party and parents to make sure they had everything they needed as well. We received countless compliments on the staff and the food.


Thank you so much for working with us and contributing to the absolute best day. We will refer ELLE to anyone who asks, and even to the people who don’t ask. We could not be happier.”

Jennifer T.

“Thank you so much for arranging our absolutely fabulous evening on Saturday.  We were so impressed with everything, especially our chef Crystal, who not only prepared us an outstanding meal, but was also professional, friendly and courteous in every way.  I don’t know how she managed to put together such a beautiful dinner without using anything but the stove in our kitchen.  She even unloaded the dishwasher and put everything away!


We hope to have the opportunity to use your services again.  In the meantime, thank you for an evening to remember.”

Anne and Jack

“Just a quick note to let you know how fantastic the food was for our party tonight.  The ladies; Jenny, Heidi and Becca did a spectacular job with the service and the food was the best catered food we have ever had (our guests also commented the same).

Thanks so much for everything from the menu to the organization to the execution.  We are very happy.”

Krissy and Rob

“Thank you very much for the wonderful food and service last week (and putting up with so many changes throughout on our end). Everyone loved it and I have heard nothing but great feedback. We can’t wait to work with you for our next event.”

Cossette Marketing Agency

I hope that you’re doing well. We had an absolutely wonderful time on Sunday – my parents were so surprised and so thrilled and everyone just loved the food, especially the beef! The girls were just wonderful, I can’t wait for the dinner next week.”

Katie E.

It’s so not enough to simply say thank you for all you and the team did yesterday to make our event truly magical. I am so proud to work with you as our catering and events partner. We will do much more together!!! The food was perfect and that sticky toffee pudding might be the best thing I have ever eaten. Can you please pass along our heartfelt thanks to your entire team? They were so amazing. We got so many compliments from everyone at the party last night – truly our best holiday party yet!!”


“Just wanted to let you know that everything was fantastic. The cooking class was fun and easy to follow. Crystal did an amazing job explaining her techniques and allowing us to participate. The food surpassed our expectations. The service was great. It was such a treat and my husband was blown away by the surprise.

You guys did an amazing job. We look forward to working with Elle Cuisine again.”


“I wanted to call you all day today, but I still had lots of people around and there was never a good time. I hope to speak to you tomorrow-to thank you in person – but for now, I just want you to know how happy I am with the party — it was wonderful, truly fabulously delicious, the look and feel I had imagined and best of all, I had an amazing time! You can’t imagine the number of compliments I got today and really they’re for you for making it all happen.


Thank you! And thank you to your staff, they were great.”


“Thank you for catering the Spot the Zebra fundraiser at my moms house. All the guests were thoroughly impressed with your food! The knowledge and professionalism of your staff (and training of our volunteers) was outstanding. You’re silent auction donation was a hit – it was successfully purchased by Claude, a friend of my moms, who is a chef himself and was taken away with your food. Thank you for your donation to the ILC foundation. We were able to raise almost $120,000 with the help of donors like you for a very deserving charity…

Thanks again.”

– Erin

“Thank you very much for all of yours and your team’s assistance with our alumni reception last week. We were very pleased with how it all went. Here is some feedback that we would like to share:

Food + Beverage:
⁃ food was excellent
⁃ presentation was beautiful
⁃ quantity appeared to be sufficient

⁃ Elle staff (Carolee, Peyton, Amanda, Lauren, Lisa, and Kailee and others whom I didn’t get their names) were very professional, easy to work with, quick learners (on registration desk), and friendly.
– Carolee was always very easy to connect with and extremely helpful
⁃ AV tech, Mitch, was very helpful and friendly

⁃ last minute issues (additional umbrellas and canceling and uncanceling of pianist) were handled smoothly

Please share with your team our sincere thanks. Do let me know if you have connections with interesting venues that would allow you to cater — we’ll be back in Toronto next year and would consider any options that you can provide us with.”

– Lisa Jung, Alumni Officer, Events and Programs, Alumni Relations | Simon Fraser University

“Last night was fantastic – the service was impeccable, the staff were wonderful and so professional, the space was beautifully decorated, and the food was a big hit. I noticed quite a few guests strategically standing by the kitchen to get their hands on whatever was coming out next.. Dibs were called on the floral arrangements rather quickly this morning and I’m still hearing comments about how beautiful they are. Heidi was amazing – checking in with my support staff and I consistently throughout the night, making sure we were happy, flagging and addressing any concerns as soon as they came up. Considering this was the first event in our new office and it’s still under construction, Elle Cuisine certainly made an impression for subsequent events – a few colleagues came up during set-up to take photos and notes, and loved what was done with the space in terms of décor and flow of the room. I had a few requests for your contact info as well. Absolutely amazing job.

(Also, my director was extremely pleased and impressed considering the space was still a construction zone at 2pm yesterday – so thank you for making me look good!!)

Carolee – thanks for putting together an such amazing service for us and working within our budget. Also a big thank you for handling all our last-minute requests, no matter how ridiculous, with such grace.

Again, thank you for such a great service last night and I look forward to working with you in the future.”

– Nicole Dufraine, Marketing Program Manager | Cisco Systems Canada

“Thanks for the invoice and for everything you and your staff did the night of our wedding. Everyone was more than impressed with the food, and I think you should know that a lot of people were saying it was the best wedding food they’d ever had (which we believe as well). It truly was an incredible night, and a large part of that was due to you, Lauren and your team! Thank you for going above and beyond for us…you really came through for us, and helped make our day so so so incredible.

Hope you’re having a great day! Jamie and I are eating way too much food in France…it’s fantastic. :)”

– Laura

“We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service on Saturday night. Everything was delicious as well as beautifully presented. I have catered for larger events but never for a dinner party before but it is something that my husband and I would definitely like to do again.”

– Susan

“I’m sorry for the very overdue email – I had meant to get in touch right away after last Wednesday and I truly don’t know where the time has gone. The evening was wonderful – the food superb! Truly no complaints at all, although I might do less hors d’oeuvres next time simply because they were so good no one had enough room to fully enjoy the meal and dessert.
All the best,”

– Naomi Azrieli

“We thought you all did a fantastic job at the wedding and our guests have had nothing but glowing praise for you. I think you probably also saw that Chris Nuttall-Smith, the food critic at the Globe & Mail tweeted that he loved the meal.

Thanks so much.”

– Chantel Guertin, Beauty Expert | The Marilyn Denis Show

“Everything went amazing last week – super professional, food tasted amazing and everything went off without a hitch. We were very pleased across the board – thank you!”

– Bo Hong, Project Manager & Integrated Sales Coordinator | ZoomerMedia

“I can not speak highly enough of the service and food from our event on Friday. The guests absolutely loved it. On top of that, you staff was always available, smiling and helpful even when the crowd might have gotten aggressive or irritating (more drinks they had, the hungrier they got!)

I really appreciate all your flexibility given the space and hotel conditions, etc.

Again, thank you for making our event such a success, without your staff and classy food, it would not have nearly been the same!”

– Shilpa

“We had an excellent experience and are very satisfied! Our evening was relaxing and very memorable thanks to our delicious dinner and Chef Becca’s professional service. She is truly awesome. Everybody loved her food and our young boys cleaned their plates… Twice… In no time!!!

Thanks again!”

– Valerie

“Service last night was amazing! Everyone can’t stop talking about the food. Just delicious. Thank you so much for everything. :)”

– Naomi Cudanin, Executive Administrator |

“I wanted to send a note to thank you, Lauren and your entire team for all your work for our event last week. It was a very successful event for my clients and I appreciate all your efforts.

I have to tell you – Elle Cuisine is one of the best caterers I have EVER worked with. The quality of the food, service and presentation was impeccable. The guests have not stopped talking about how delicious everything was. I was really impressed with your execution in such a small space with so many people…I think you did a really incredible job.

I hope to continue our relationship and work on some more events with you and the Elle Cuisine team in the near future.

Also, I know your husband was taking some photos and I guess he captured a few group shots. I was asked if he could send any as my client would love to have some photos from the event. If he has any fun group or event shots from Friday, please send them our way.

Thank you again – happy holidays!”

– Stephanie Gareri, Photography, Marketing, Events | Adamson Architects

“I sincerely hope you had a great, well earned restful long weekend. Just wanted to thank you once gain for all of your hard work last Thurs. A great time was had by all, the compliments were flowing as people left, and I know a huge part of that was to do with the food which was absolutely excellent. I truly look forward to working with you again. ”

– Norma Hynd, National Meeting Specialist, Internal Firm Services | PwC

“Thank you so much for the fantastic job you and your staff did for my 60th birthday last Sat. Everyone raved about the delicious food. Most people commented on the hors d’oeuvres – I think the favourites were the tuna and the sliders. Everyone also loved the risotto and I cannot count how many people told me they went to the butcher block station and just asked for “everything”. The desserts were just as tasty, the tiny fruit cups, the flourless chocolate bites with your amazing ice cream and those little sticky toffee puddings. You really got it right with the food!

Even so, that was not the only reason that we thought you did a fantastic job. From the very beginning, there was somebody on the scene making sure things were right, from your first visit to figure out set-up and weather contingency plans, to Heather arriving early the morning of the party and checking what the caterer brought, and finding they had forgotten the forks. Britt and Priscilla were terrific servers, Liz was a perfect bartender, Alex was everywhere moving at the speed of light and Dina was clearly on top of everything in the kitchen. Every single person on your team was a real pro with a great attitude.

I am so glad we found you, and I look forward to finding another excuse to take advantage of your terrific service. Meanwhile if anyone ever requests a personal recommendation for elle, please send them to us! Thank you all so much.”

– Julie and Peter Wood

“On behalf of all of the Mabel’s team, thank you so so much for the outstanding job you did on our event on Thursday night.

Everything was just perfect. All of the food was absolutely amazing and people were commenting all night about how unique it all was and that it was so nice to be at an event with outstanding food!

I am so thrilled that we hired you for our event. Your team fit perfectly with ours and you were definitely the right (only) choice for us! I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a caterer! If you ever need/want me to do a testimonial for you, please just let me know!

Thanks again so much!”

– Karma Bryan-Ingle

“I wanted to thank you and your wonderful team for helping to make our special event so memorable. The food was simply outstanding! Everyone commented how delicious and unique the items were. The food was such a cornerstone of the evening, so thank you for your incredibly delicious creations – and those wonderful signature cocktails.

On a personal note, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and I thoroughly appreciated your enthusiasm and passion. Please extend my gratitude to Jessica who did a great job in ensuring everything ran smoothly in the ‘front of the house’.

Wishing you continued success and I hope our paths may cross again in the future.”

– Anita Boudreau

“Thank you again for the wonderful food you prepared for our party last night. Many of us are serious foodies and think we have impeccable taste — and your menu and preparation exceeded even our vaulted expectations. We actually received a note from a client this morning saying it was the best food she had ever had at any party ever. Not that we needed her note to know that! I also appreciated how helpful and flexible you were with us.

Your staff were all lovely and helpful too.

Many thanks again Lauren. We look forward to recommending you to clients and friends and hope we’ll have the opportunity to sample the fruits of you labour again soon.”

– Marilyn Short

“Thank you very much – we had a fantastic time last night. AnnaLea and Dena were perfect – the food was delicious and Dena is awesome! I believe many people asked for your card – they were all very impressed. Heather, a special thank you to you for all of your help along the way – you were absolutely right that the passed hors d’oeuvres was the way to go!

Thanks again!”

– Anne Carty

“I just wanted to thank-you for putting together an amazing night on Saturday! You were both so wonderful to work with!

Lauren – The food was absolutely spectacular and everyone raved about how amazing everything was long after you left on Saturday! Thank-you for taking the time to put together such a wonderful meal and making the trip to Beamsville. I will highly recommend you to friends and family.

Keep up the good work!”

– Gill and Kyle-Gillian Sheldrick

“What a wonderful night, thank you so much Lauren for a wonderful, wonderful meal – you were gracious, and you prepared such a delicious meal. We were all so impressed.”

– Christine Morin-Higgs

“Just wanted to thank you for the phenomenal meal and service at my staff party on Saturday. Everyone was absolutely thrilled with the food & there have already been requests to have you cater our holiday party for years to come.”

– Steph Brown

“I can’t thank your team enough for the amazing night last night. Stating last night was a memorable and an unforgettable night would truly be an understatement. This experience was a first for us as a family, and all I can say is that everyone is still raving. The night was so smooth and the ladies were EXTREMELY nice and accommodating. It felt as if they were part of the family. Everything was done first class! My wife’s 31st bday will not be something that she’ll only remember for the rest of her life it will be stitched in the minds of each family member as well. Thank you to your team for making last night a special night!”

– Parminder Rai

“Just a quick email to say a huge thank you!!! It was so amazing! Actually the full experience was perfect. Dealing with you to organize , you made it so simple.

It was beyond my expectation for the quantity of food but Mainly the taste! Everything was to die for! Classic food with a modern twist.

Because of elle cuisine I had the best 40th i could possibly Expect for me but for my guess as well. My husband was so impressed that He wants to organize a get together for his friends and colleague.

As you know i work at Miele appliances (very high end appliances) and we do lots Of private and corporate event. I will definitely give your bjusiness card to our event manager.

Hopefully it will bring you business. You deserve it. You girls rock!!”

– Caroline Chaput

“I can’t tell how how impressed everyone was with the food, presentation and staff – you were all great – what a team! I forgot to take business cards for myself to give out so will have to get those from you. You are my “IT” caterer for all my non-kosher events!”

– Nancy Singer

“I just wanted to thank you both for all your help and to let you know how great the feedback was from everyone. We had an AMAZING time yesterday. I’ve already told pretty much ALL of my corporate clients/colleagues about how well it went. Lauren, I truly appreciate your patience! I know we went much longer than we had originally planned.”
