    Delighted and Ecstatic!!!!

    My wedding is not until July,2021 but we had Chef Bob Friesen for wedding tasting dinner at my future in-laws house. We are all pleased with the way Chef prepared the meal for us, he is very attentive, professional and my fiance's family loved him. It is really a good experience to have him.The foods are amazing,and we are overwhelmingly pleased with the whole experience. We cannot wait for the wedding day to come and have him as a Chef and have his team to cater our wedding.

    Our dinner was fantastic!!!

    We hired Bob for our wedding reception and the dinner was fantastic! All our guests raved about the food - one of our guests actually went to the kitchen to look for Bob, to personally thank him for the amazing vegan tart he prepared! The hors d'oeuvres, main courses, and late night snacks were delicious and beautifully plated - it was truly a memorable dinner. Aside from the delicious food, Bob is an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very helpful throughout the entire planning process, very flexible, and always responsive. We couldn't be more thankful for all his patience, dedication, professionalism, and of course - the wonderful meal.

    A bride-to-be's dream!

    A huge THANK YOU to Chef Bob Friesen and his team at Gourmet Chef At Your Table. He is more than just a caterer - he is an event planner! Not only did he carefully prepare the delicious hors d’oeuvres for our wedding, he also provided the linens, glassware and cutlery, as well as the servers and the bartenders we needed to complete our event. Over many calls and emails, Bob showed that he was professional, attentive, organized, helpful, caring and had a great sense of humour – basically a bride-to-be’s dream! All of our guests raved about wonderful food and service that he and his team provided. It was a pleasure to work with Gourmet Chef At Your Table and I would highly recommend them for any occasion.

    Greatly exceeded our expectations!!

    Looking back on my wedding day, there are many things that went exactly as I had hoped and expected and some things that I would have done differently. I can say without a doubt that hiring Bob was the single best decision I made during the entire wedding process and he greatly exceeded my expectations. From the day I reached out to him until the day of my wedding he was extremely attentive, organized, helpful, kind, professional, genuine and caring. Bob went above and beyond and I considered him to be more of an event planner than a caterer - he helped me make sure every single detail was perfect and well thought out over many long phone calls and emails. I thought he was amazing well before I ever even tried his food. The food at our wedding was absolutely beautiful, elegant and delicious. Every single guest raved about their meal and said that Bob prepared the best steak they have ever eaten. If you are looking for catering or a personal chef, I promise you that you do not need to look any further. Bob is one of the rare wonderful humans out there and you would be lucky to meet and work with him!

    The food was all magnificent!

    Alan and I consider ourselves very lucky to have ‘found’ Bob. From first contact he was friendly, helpful and efficient. He catered a special dinner for our small wedding and the food was all magnificent; he was incredibly organized and the evening was stress free. If you’re looking for a special event, I highly recommend Bob!
