    Great food

    I dealt with Laura Nolan and she was extremely responsive and patient with preparing my proposal. The food itself was great and a good value for what we got, and presentation was great. We also got our cake from them and I probably wouldn’t do that again as the quality wasn’t that great and there was some miscommunication as to what we asked for and what we received. However the actual food was amazing and I would recommend them based on that and the great service of Laura.

    All around awful.

    They did my wedding a few weeks ago at the UBC Boathouse. Everything seemed to fall apart. Late to arrive, not enough food...!, cold food. Poor service all around. They disrupted the speeches by deciding that was a good time to pack up, just all around it was awful. It's unfortunate because Laura was great to work with leading up the event, unfortunately, they did not deliver on the event. I had so many complaints from so many guests, it's embarrassing. For what they charged us I would not recommend them at ALL.

    Such a Disappointment on such an Important Day!

    It is with great disappointment that I write this review. After several attempts to contact Laura, the Event Coordinator and finally the owner, Darryl, emails and phone messages have remained unanswered for a week now from myself, and the bride. It shows the negligence is widespread in this company. As someone who works in customer service, I know that things happen but it’s the way a company responds to mistakes that says a lot about them. BUYER BEWARE when using this company as they do not fulfill the contract and if there is an issue, you will be met with stone cold silence.
    Our son and daughter in law were married a little over two weeks ago and they used “The Butler Did It Catering Company”. The service provided by this company that evening was so disappointing on so many levels. The food arrived late, and it was apparent they did not give themselves enough time to travel from downtown Vancouver to Richmond during rush hour traffic. Although in the contract they guarantee that they will provide enough food and extras for the number of guests quoted, this did not happen, and 3 tables went without any salads or vegetables. They did not have warmers under the trays so for some of the tables the food was cold and for some strange reason they immediately packed up what food was left after the last table came up so that no one was able to get seconds if they wanted to. The staff showed poor respect and etiquette during the event, dismantling tables during speeches, picking up drinks and plates before guests were finished and just gave many of the guests the impression they did not want to be there. There were other issues during the night, but these were the most notable. As a company providing a very important service to one of peoples most important days of their lives and for this company to not even attempt to address the concern from their clients or to offer any explanation is extremely disheartening.

    The Butler Did It took over last minute (two weeks before the wedding!) when the restaurant I had hired to do it disappointed again... The Butler Did It took on the job and handled everything, while also proving that they actually wanted the job and appreciated the business. Being French-cuminary trained, I didnt even think it was possible for me to be happy with my wedding food within my budget, but I totally was! Thank- you Butler, sincerely!

    Hi Deborah,

    Thank you so much for putting your trust in us at the Butler, to put a menu and event together in such a short time that reflected you and your now husbands tastes and budget. It was a pleasure working with you and we wish you nothing but the best.

    The food was tasty, but that's where it ends.
    Menu changes along the way increased the price from our original quote, but when we requested to go back to our original menu, the price also went up.
    Our coordinator went over timelines and logistics ahead of our wedding, but the servers were either understaffed or disorganized on the day. Despite providing the Butler Did It with a list of people with allergies and the seating chart, some of our guests (nut-free, gluten-free) received food they are allergic to. Other guests were not served for an hour, and no one was served wine during dinner, even though it was expressly stated in their quote that wine glasses would be topped up.
    Later, we found out that 11 people and our day-of coordinator picked up the flu at our wedding. They were from different friend and family groups, and not sitting together. We investigated the source and found the only common element was the caterer. The Butler Did It was very unprofessional when we shared this with them and implied we told them so that we wouldn't have to pay our bill. The health authority reviewed the facility as a result of our complaint and found sanitary issues.
    I would not recommend the Butler Did It.
