    Delicious food and excellent service

    We have a family of foodies and everyone was wowed by the menu that Scholars served. Surprisingly, everyone raved about the vegetarian menu selection. Also, they were more than happy to accommodate our allergies and a change to the style of chicken on our buffet menu.
    Robert was also lovely to work with and all of the staff were just wonderful, including and especially the bartenders.
    Wedding food can sometimes be sub-par because they're being prepared in such large quantities, but we got so many compliments and we've been to a ton of weddings and can genuinely say our food was just outstanding, which makes us very happy.

    Unorganized, inflexible, charged extra 6 months after wedding

    Scholar Catering is very hard to deal with. They have monopolized all UBC venues. The venues may look nice, but Scholar Catering cannot take credit for that. During wedding planning, when everyone planning the wedding are stressed, Scholar Catering takes 3-10 days to respond questions. We had to get managers involved eventually. They are not flexible, meaning you cannot bring anything on site, not even water. Everything has to be purchased through them, and you are looking at about $3,000 for a 100 people event with light snack/water. Worst of all, I found a charge of $150 from them that's not on our contract 6 months after I receive my deposit from them. It adds an extra layer of stress to the wedding when we are forced to use them for wedding inside UBC.

    Update: I have contacted Scholar Catering and their General Manager, Kerensa has informed me that the extra charge came from the food my wedding planner ordered for planning staff on the day of the wedding. I agree that’s something I should pay for and Scholar Catering did not leak my credit card information, however, I’d advise them to be more organized.

    The coordinator was very responsive and experienced. The food was good, the desserts were very pretty, and the staff were very professional and courteous. During party hour, I asked the bartender to add additional drinks on the menu and he was happy to do so. The downside is that the food was quite expensive. The prices listed on the menu are only for the food and don't include service and cooking fees, we had to pay extra for the hourly wage of servers, bartenders, supervisors, cooks, attendants etc. It's quite misleading to not mention this on the menu pricing. We also had to pay extra for tableware rentals and external dessert charge.

    Cecil Green Wedding

    We had our wedding at Cecil Green in July 2017. Robert Eye (Scholar Catering) was amazing to work with and accomodated all our small details, making it a dream come true. His professionalism, attention to detail, sense of humour, and patience made the planning process easy and fun. He was a dream to work and plan with. The food was amazing and this is the most important part of a wedding in my opinion for guests. It was affordable and received high ratings from all guests. Roberts ability to work with us and accommodate our demands is so appreciated. Cecil Green was a dream come true in all aspects. Thank you for a stress free and dream like wedding I never planned for!

    We had a fabulous wedding. I credit Scholars Catering, specifically Robert Eye, for sharing his passion with us and ensuring we received exactly what we were looking for. Our guests absolutely LOVED the food and were very impressed with the presentation, quality, and overall taste. We highly recommend the salmon. The staff on site your very professional. Great first impression!
