    Our rep at The Food Dudes, Merlin, was extremely helpful and responsive during the planning processes. We were able to customize a menu to fit exactly what we wanted. The food itself was amazing; their unique options meant that it didn't feel like just another wedding meal. Everything was cooked well and was exactly what we had in our tasting.

    I worked with June from Food Dudes and she was an incredible help in planning our big day. We had our wedding out of town and she helped every step of the way with ensuring we had everything we needed. The food was incredible. It was the one thing that people are still talking about. I highly recommend splurging on the hors d’oureves they were incredible.

    Honestly, stop looking at other caterers, The Food Dudes are incredible. Every guest raved about how delicious the food was, from the appetizers all the way to the dessert. Even my Vietnamese family that are picky with food all said how delicious it was and there was a lot of it, ... View more people got full. I heard multiple times "the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding". What we ordered: **received great compliments Appetizers: Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Grilled Cheese with soft Brie**, Strip Steak**, Beef slider glazed w/ BBQ sauce, Chili Glazed shrimp** Main: Harissa Chicken Supreme, Sous Vide Short Rib**, Mexican Bowl Dessert: Fudge Brownies, Churros, Mojito Cream Puffs We worked with Jason Dinetz. He was a dream, out of all vendors, he was the most prompt and professional. We ended up getting him for the Month of Coordinator and that was money well spent.

    The Food Dudes catered our Engagement Party, which doubled as our Canadian Wedding, on July 3, 2017. The service we received from the Event Specialist (Diki McElhinney) and her team was second to none. From the initial emails, to the tasting, to coordinating the day - they made ... View more it easy and fun for us to plan our dream party. Anything we wanted done, they delivered, and they always responded to our emails and calls quickly. On the actual day itself, the Food Dudes were excellent. They came early and went above and beyond by helping us set up our decorations, work out timing and the result was better than expected. The food was DELICIOUS and fresh. Our guests are still raving about the Poke bowls and passed canapes. Thank you so much Food Dudes, you are truly the best caterers in the GTA! We highly recommend the Food Dudes and would use them for our next event with pleasure.
