    Amazing food, great staff and service, communication the only issue

    We had experience working with this caterer through our work Christmas parties, so we knew what to expect for the taste and quality of the food and it's hands down the best! Everyone at the wedding raved about the food and how good it was. We did a family style service instead of plated and it was well received, our guests really liked that they could go for second helpings. Devour definitely delivered on that and the presentation was excellent.

    We also hired Devour to take care of our rentals and setup and pack down, they acted like an events team for the wedding. This was really helpful given the venue we were at. It was also so great to not have to worry about any of the rentals the next day after the wedding, they took care of it all for us.

    If you plan on hiring Devour as your event coordinator, my advise would be to ask for a full list of items that they will be doing for you (ex. printing menu's, seating chart etc.) and go over the full vision of what you want everything to look like. I felt that I was asking more then often if they were doing these things for us or if I was responsible to do them, so a bit of confusion there.

    During the time of our wedding one of the founders and operators of the company was unavailable due to family issues and so the other founder took over. This did cause some delay in communication and created some frustration for us.

    There were a few minor discrepancies between what we had planned in our dinner service and what was actually delivered. We made an inquiry about it and they refunded us the difference. We appreciate working with companies that are willing to own their mistakes and work with clients on resolutions.

    If we were doing this again we would definitely hire Devour but be a little more upfront about what we expected in terms of communication and the overall role as an event manager and wedding coordinator.

    Devour Catering's reply:

    Hi Jenn! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We always appreciate feedback since it is the best way for us to learn how and where we can improve. Following your wedding last October, we did sit down as a team to refine some of our processes in terms of laying out clear expectations of services to be delivered to wedding clients as well as a more streamlined process to present tasting menus. We always strive to create exceptional experiences from start to finish so these improvements will help us do that.

    We really enjoyed being part of your wedding celebration! It is a very challenging time right now for all event based businesses and we sincerely hope that, once the threat of COVID-19 abates, we will be able to return to regular operations and continue to help people celebrate. Stay healthy and safe out there Jenn!

    Best day ever!

    Devour was incredible to work with! They tailored our menu to be very personalized. The staff was so professional, bar staff was amazing.

    They took care of everything and made our day incredibly stress free. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Devour Catering's reply:

    Hi Nancy! Wow. Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review. We absolutely loved meeting your family and friends and being part of such a fantastic wedding celebration. All the best to you for a long and happy life together!

    My fiancé and I are getting married in 2018. I contacted devour in February 2017 to get a catering quote. They refused to give me any sort of pricing or menu options over the phone/email, and insisted that I meet with them in person. My fiancé and I met with Jasmin in early March, and spent an hour of our time going over everything we wanted at our wedding. She advised us she would have our quote ready in two weeks. A month went by and I had not heard anything. I contacted her and asked how things were going. She apologised and said they had been busy, she would "have the quote for my 2018 wedding by the end of the week." It's now July and I have still not heard from them. I am extremely disappointed. Needless to say, we have booked another caterer who was able to get back to us right away. It's very stressful planning a wedding, especially when potential vendors do not get back to you and waste your time. I guess our wedding simply was not good enough for devour to cater. I would not recommend at all.

    Devour Catering's reply:

    Hi Deserie - Thank you for sharing your experience and I am sincerely sorry that you have been left feeling disappointed. That is never our intention.

    As a small catering company that specializes in full-service events that include custom menus and event plans that look after all rentals, venue set up, personalized touches, and event coordination - we do like to have a face to face meeting with our wedding clients so we can create a realistic proposal that will reflect the personalities of the wedding couple and the requirements of the venue. We do not have 'set' wedding packages per se. We do have our wedding information package that I know we sent out to you that does provide a price range based on weddings we have catered over the last 15 years.

    We do strive to have responsive turnaround time with regards to sending out quotes, etc. but we can sometimes take longer and for this I again sincerely apologize. We will reach out to you again directly via email and hope we can at least have you review the menu and quote that we do have prepared for you.

    Many thanks again for posting your comments. It is only through feedback that we can improve. Enjoy the rest of your day!

    Would give 6 or 10 stars if possible. Guests requested recipes. The company was a dream to deal with from beginning to end. They went above and beyond at the last minute to boot after our original plan fell through. We highly recommend Devour!

    Devour Catering's reply:

    Wow! Thanks so much for your kind words Alicia. We loved being part of your wedding celebration as well. Best wishes for a long and happy life together!
