    Perfectly Executed!

    Gilt and the whole team (because there are so many who helped make this happen!) were absolutely phenomenal! We have not stopped receiving outstanding feedback from our guests. Gillian was our day of lead and she responded to every email and change so quickly, you knew they were on it and in it to help create a beautiful day. The service was perfection, on time, searing hot and so so so delicious! I can not thank the whole team enough for creating such a delicious meal from start to finish, and everything in between. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Absolutely amazing

    We had our wedding reception at Gilt in October of 2017. The entire Gilt team was absolutely amazing to deal with! From our first meeting to discuss ideas to the execution day of they were easy and a pleasure to work with. They made us feel very comfortable and confident in the decisions we were making on our layout, day of setup and food + drink choices! We did a standup station style reception for 115 people and the space was perfect. The different food stations throughout the night were perfect and provided something for all the guests. The Gilt team did an excellent job making sure my husband and I always had food and drinks and helped us with whatever was necessary throughout the evening. I would highly recommend Gilt's A+++ team as a Wedding Venue or cater!

    Great Catering company & offers day of coordination via Stella Co

    Our venue had 3 preferred caterers and we are lucky that Gilt Catering was one of them. They were by far the most responsive and accommodating for our wedding needs. We got buffet service with them and all our guests really enjoyed the food. Brides typically feel like they don't have time or energy to eat but I ate a bit of everything and was great!

    I also went with their Day of Coordinator service via Stella Co and had Emily help us out. It was honestly the best money spent because I didn't have to think about anything day of and Emily just handled everything and kept us on our preplanned schedule. She also had a meeting with us roughly 2 months before so she had a rough idea what was going on and gave us advice for the day plan.

    Amazing experience

    Gilt catering went above and beyond for our wedding. We had one or two guests with very specific dietary restrictions and they were able to communicate with the chef directly, prior to the wedding. Fantastic service through the entire dinner, very attentive wait staff and the food was to die for.

    Guests are still raving 2 years later

    Gilt made my wedding day perfect. My guests still tell me all the time how my wedding was the absolute best wedding they have ever been to and that no other wedding can compare. They rave about the food, the bar, the service and the venue. Chef Stephanie sat down with my husband and I and created the absolute best most inventive menu ever served at a wedding. Kristi, Jenna and Trella made the day perfect and go off without a hitch. They not only helped me plan, food, beverage, decor, flowers and cake, but also used their expertise to help with timing, coursing, and kept everything on track! We had an amazing cocktail hour, including gourmet apps, oyster bar, signature cocktails. We then sat and had an amazing 6 course dinner perfectly timed with speeches. I even asked them to make sure the best man didn't drink too much before his speech and they kept a close eye on him for me! One less thing to worry about. No one ever had an empty glass or had to wait in a line, the staff was so attentive and amazing the whole night, they were even polite to some very rude wedding guests. I cannot recommend Gilt enough. They made my day perfect and kept me stress free.

    Incredible food and service!

    Gilt did an incredible job on all aspects of food for our wedding day. From the canapés, to our plated meal and late night snack our guests have raves about the food! Great selections to choose from, very easy to work with for any dietary or allergy restrictions as well. Highly recommend Gilt Catering!

    Outdoor Oasis Wedding

    We had our wedding on a beautiful farm property just outside Elora called Irvineside Farm. Gilt was amazing throughout the nearly 2 years of planning due to COVID. Despite the fact Christie is super busy she was always very responsive and helpful. Gilt's idea of a stationed dinner worked perfectly for the venue. It allowed our guests to eat, mingle and flow throughout the property! The day of was flawless and we heard compliments about the food the entire night! Especially about the Ahi tuna tacos! Gilt went out of their way to accommodate any dietary restrictions! A friend of the groom said she never felt so special. Gilt came to her with food specifically prepared for her very particular restrictions. Overall, we can't say enough about Gilt! They were our favourite restaurant and continue to impress as our favourite catering!

    Do not hesitate to book Gilt - one of the best decisions of our day!

    Gilt catered our wedding reception August 2018, and it was one of the best decisions we made! The entire team at Gilt were a dream to work with, from our initial consultation to our reception and everything in between. We always felt like we were in the best hands. Kristi helped us choose an amazing menu, and the food the day of our wedding was incredible! Our guests are still raving that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The servers were so professional and attentive. We always feel like we are treated like family at Gilt, and the team brought the same experience for our most important day. They exceeded our expectations at every turn, and there was not a single thing that could have been improved upon. I would absolutely recommend Gilt to anyone in need of catering for a special event or wedding!
