    Our wedding was at the Museum of Nature on July 30th 2016. My husband and I would like to say we are very pleased with everything, from the planning process working with Mélanie to the day of our wedding and the follow up invoice. The food was fantastic all our guest were happy and all allergenic and food specifications were met. My niece loved the vegan dish that she picked and many other guest loved it as well. Our dinner was the hot buffet Prime Rib option. For the late night dinner, we chose the pizza option which was also very tasty. At the wedding we asked that they keep the wine flowing though dinner and we will pay later. ByTown was very accommodating and able to keep all the guest wine glasses full for us. Very happy with the food and service. As the bride and groom we wish we could have had seconds but we were busy entertaining. Everything was very good. The three deserts were perfect and all guest were happy with dinner. Thank-you ByTown for a super job. Jen + Tim

    They were helpful in the planning process however on the day of they failed. They got lost on the way there called us at 2:30 to ask for directions to the venue. The venue, is one that this company has used many times, bytown should have given the catering team for that day better directions to the venue. As a result of them showing up late the cocktail hour started late and went late this would not have been a problem if the dinner was aloud to go late but they insisted that they "had to be out of there by 10". They were taking wine glasses and plates away from people who were not done their deserts or drinks. They should have let the dinner go past 10 since the reason it was delayed was because they were late. when you pay 5000 dollars you do not expect the caterers to rush out
