    Loveddd Savoury City!!

    Donna and her team were an absolute dream to work with!! She came to the venue site with us several times to do walk through and to make sure that everything will be organized on the day of. Her emails were always full of positivity and Donna is one of the main reasons we were really excited planning the wedding, knowing that we will be in good hands with her in charge. She was not only our caterer, but she also organized all of the rentals for us, which was a big weight lifted off our shoulders because we would have no idea where to begin. She worked closely with our budget and made sure that we were comfortable with everything from beginning to end. The food, needless to say, was delicious!! We had been thinking of the food since doing the tasting 3 months before our wedding, and on the day of it did not disappoint at all.

    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    Loveddd Carrie & Augustine!!! I think you know that I coined you as 'one of my fave wedding couples of the season' and I absolutely loved working with you! From the moment I met you both, I knew your wedding was going to be something special. And watching you both during the ceremony with your specially written vows to each, well, that was a wee bit emotional. Like everyone else, I cried along too. So sweet and so touching. And then...what a party! It was a beautiful day, and the two of you are such a beautiful couple...both inside and out. I was SO happy to be a part of it, and I have a feeling we'll stay in touch! Big love to you both!

    First of all our wedding tasting experience was TOP NOTCH. The food was SO delicious and we couldn't stop eating. They were open to additions such as adding peas to the mushroom risotto, getting us poutine for the late night snack AND making our delicious fried chicken gluten free for my husband! OMG day of? Our guests couldn't get ENOUGH. They were obsessed with the food which as we all know, is RARE. Plus? Donna and her staff are SO FUN! We love them and would hang out in every day life if we could :) Please hire them!!!!!!

    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    WOW! Now you know I was waiting all year for your December wedding, as I knew that it was going to be one of those over the top, gushy and fun ones! And you and Ryan didn't not disappoint! Loved seeing the love between you. And I'm so glad you loved the entire experience, and everyone loved the food. And hey, if you lived in Vancouver, I think I would want to hang out with you everyday too!

    Big love to you both, and thank you for the absolute joy of having me as part of the team for the big day!

    We hired Savoury City for our wedding and it was one of the best choices we've ever made! Donna and her team are friendly, professional, and so talented! Their level of customer service is impeccable - from our consultation meeting, to our tasting, to the site visit, to the actual wedding day - everything was perfect. Donna pays attention to every little detail, and was totally on board for us providing our own cake, liquor, and late night snack. On top of all this, the food was AMAZING! Our guests were raving about our food all night!! I would highly recommend Savoury City - especially Donna!

    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    Hi Ally and Denis!
    Thank you so much for the kind words, and you know I loved being there on your wedding day! The weather was gorgeous...you were both gorgeous, and I loved sneaking some hors d'oeuvres out to you on the lawn. I knew at that stage that you would be starving!
    I wish you and Denis a brilliant life together, and somehow I think we might be seeing each other in the future. Just kind of have that feeling...
    Big hugs to you both!

    Donna was amazing, she took the most detailed notes the first time we met. Our tasting was fabulous, we got to taste everything and we liked every single item! She has a great team and they provided excellent service, and she went above and beyond to make sure our reception is worry free for me on my big day :) Definitely recommend Savoury City if you are looking for one of a kind menu, and absolutely delicious food.

    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    Hi Coco,
    Oh thank you so much to you and Dylan, and your wedding was a true feast! Lets see...where to start? A family style dinner that included Pacific Ling Cod, Braised Lamb Shoulder, 'Chick-Etta', Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, Grilled Polenta, Deconstructed Lasagna...finishing with Fruit Crumble, Earnest Ice Cream and Iced Limoncello. Wow! And you know I loved talking food with everyone!
    It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding, and I truly felt like part of the family. It was pretty special, so thank you for all the fabulously fun times along the way. Big love to you and Dylan and your respective families!

    From the moment we walked into the office, we knew that this experience was going to be different. Donna has a passion and genuine love for both the people around her and her work. She is incredibly patient, professional and imaginative. She was with us throughout the entire planning process- giving us valuable help and support not only around the food but many other aspects of our wedding. And life in general...

    We had a loose vision of what we wanted for food at our wedding, and Donna and her team took those ideas and exceeded our expectations at every turn creating a fabulous menu that was integral to the experience. They coined it "Nantucket Italian," and it was those two words that would set a theme for our day. And, when it came to the big day the experience was perfection. The fabulous, fresh and locally sourced grazing table, the bespoke cocktails and epicurean styled dinner with all of our favorite things were all perfect start to finish. To this day, our friends comment that the food at our wedding was some of the best that they have ever enjoyed at a wedding (or otherwise!). The support staff on the day of were so warm, friendly, funny and efficient. They were lovely to us and our guests and professional throughout.

    It's hard to put into words how we feel about Donna and the Team at Savoury City in a such a short review.

    -If you're looking for incredibly creative, custom styled food: this is your vendor.
    -If you're looking for a team that will treat you like you are their only customer: this is your vendor.
    -If you're looking for a company that will do whatever it takes to save your wedding when things go sideways: this is your vendor.*
    -If you're looking to work with people you can call family: this just isn't your vendor, they will be so much more.

    We wholeheartedly recommend the Savoury City team!!! It was an absolute privilege working with them.

    *Our wedding did go sideways, they were integral to saving our day, and we didn't even find out until after it was all done!


    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    Hello Josh & Adela,
    Two of my favourite people in the world and one of my favourite weddings of the summer! Thank you so much for this, and you know it was absolutely my pleasure to be on that journey with you. We all shed some tears that day, but we also all had some great laughs. But when you asked me if I had seen Adela arrive...and I just had...well, I was speechless. So utterly beautiful and I was crying, and I wasn't you waiting to see Adela for the first time that day. But best of all is the love between you two 'hipsters trapped in brainy bodies' as I so fondly coined you both. Thank you again for everything, and time to celebrate with you both again soon!

    Savoury City not only has amazing food but incredible service as well

    We selected Savoury City as our caterer after narrowing down choices based on reviews. The tasting and flexibility won us over as we wanted to mix both Vietnamese and Western dishes in our mixed culture wedding. It went perfectly. The food was delicious and Sarah our event coordinator from Savoury worked her magic to arrange not only the reception but the beautiful chair and table decor for the ceremony as well. Savoury City far exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend them to any couple seeking the magical wedding they dreamed of. Thanks to Sarah for all her amazing work! We really enjoyed working with her and the rest of their staff 😀

    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    Thank you, James and Laurel!! It was an absolute pleasure to be your caterers, and we had such a great time on that gorgeous day! With the sun shining, and lots of amazing Vietnamese touches and flavors reflected in the food - it truly felt magical. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience working with us. I had a blast working with you both and wish you all the best in your married life.

    Many thanks,

    Sarah and the Savoury City Team!

    Savoury City was amazing! Joey helped us all the way through -- from helping us decide what would work best food-wise (to help us give our guests a variety to taste), to helping us select our rentals, making adjustments, and of course, answering all of our questions. He was there every step of the way! He was always super responsive, and super detailed oriented -- our go-to for making sure our vision for the reception came together. The day-of, he and his team were stellar! All our guests were floored by how professional and present the servers were -- making sure we always had enough wine in our glasses, and serving food so promptly. By the end of dinner, everyone was stuffed with all the delicious food! If we'd have to do it again, definitely Savoury City all the way!

    Savoury City Catering & Events's reply:

    So sorry Jenny for the delay in responding, but I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and Daniel! Thank you as well for posting some photos, and the little Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Shots were definitely a hit that day.
    Thank you again for everything, and I'm so glad we could be a part of your big day.
    All the best to you and Daniel for the future!

    Joey helped us plan our wedding this Summer, and was actively involved from December - August. His feedback was greatly appreciated, and our day ended up looking and tasting great. His team was very organized, and even worked around a major rental malfunction without us even noticing. I would definitely work with them again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family in the area.
