Toque - Classy, beautiful, and delicious!

Toque made our catering experience effortless! They have the most AMAZING food - our guests were blown away! They aren't cheap, though! :)

A lovely collaboration

With the help of our wedding coordinator we were able to have Toque Ben a part of our special day.

We look forward to working with them again in the future!

Amazing!!! 5 Stars

My husband and I planned our wedding within 3 months time, and Toque was very accommodating to all of our needs! Rachel kept in touch, and made sure all of our dreams came true! During the reception, staff came around during each course to make sure we (and our guests) were satisatisfied. And we all were!! Extraordinary food choices, all locally produced and within season! And a friendly staff to match! We will be recommending Toque to all of our friends and family!

Delicious food and great service!

Toque did our wedding at Bird's Eye Cove Farm in Duncan last month and they were great! We had changed our menu several times with them and they were super accommodating throughout the whole process! Nicholas was great, he was always helpful and willing to suggest different foods that would make everyone at the wedding happy. The food was absolutely amazing and all of the guests couldn't stop talking about it! I would definitely recommend Toque for anyone getting married on the island!

"Best meal I've ever had at a wedding" - our guests

Toque really stepped up to the plate for our wedding. Not only did we subject them to a remote location that entailed tight ferry schedules, but the reception venue itself was better suited to a 4x4 than catering van. The Toque staff worked their tails off, delivering plate after plate of delicious steaming food during our family-style dinner. Our guests devoured it all as they raved about the flavors and obviously high quality, locally-sourced products. We cannot over-emphasize how much our guests enjoyed the food. Toque was the only caterer that reacted with enthusiasm when we suggested paella as one of the main dishes...all while being fully aware of the logistical challenges that lie ahead in taking our event on in the first place. The paella, flank steak with chimichuri, seasonal vegetables, and salads were all spot-on. Their prices were completely reasonable, all told (~75% of the three higher quotes we received).

Small Backgarden wedding

We used Toque for our small wedding in June. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the cedar plank salmon, and pear and halloumi salad! The staff were a pleasure to work with from the event planner, to the cook and server on the day. I would highly recommend them for your event!

Absolutely fantastic. Best food we've ever had at a wedding, at a reasonable cost, and with a highly professional staff. If we could give this more than 5 stars we would!! Nicholas was great to work with and custom-made a menu that fit exactly what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Toque!

We hired Nick and the Toque team to cater our reception, with west coast rustic food stations and charcuterie. It was FANTASTIC. We heard from so many of our guests that it was by far the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. And the way Toque set it up was so fun - we had an open kitchen going with a chef serving individual portions of cedar plank salmon and risotto, a beautiful table with different winter salads (so tasty!), and kebabs with roasted yams. Everyone had enough to eat, and guests also commented on how fresh and healthy the menu was. To top it off, Nick's chef's personally brought us over different dishes, to make sure we were able to try everything and eat (a hard thing to do at a cocktail-style party with 140 guests wanting to talk to you!). Nick found us as well to check-in and make sure everything was tasting great. And it was great value - I would recommend Toque to everyone!

High Hopes- Disappointing Experience

Hi everyone,
I am only sharing this after not having received a reply from the vendor in over 2 weeks. We had booked with Toque Catering 2 years ago prior to the pandemic, on account of the amazing reviews. Our experience was not as we had hoped, given the reviews we had seen at the time of booking. After reading some recent reviews from others on Google, I wanted to caution other couples from booking without being fully informed.

Please see the contents of the letter below- I am not wanting to share anything on here that has not been communicated to the company directly.
~
I am writing this letter to express our disappointment with some aspects of the meal for our wedding date Nov. 12, 2022. After reading many excellent reviews of Toque Catering, we had high hopes of a fantastic meal for our guests.
I would like to start off by complementing your service staff, as they were kind, attentive, and everything appeared to go smoothly with service. They were both excellent.
One of our primary concerns was the portion sizing for our guests. At the head table, we had more than enough food. We were served the full portions of food for a table of 8. Our concern was for our guests. Our hopes were that guests could choose how much to take “family style”, rather than estimate how much they would need to take to make sure everyone one got some. With most tables of 8, at least 2 tables only had 7 chicken thighs. This was unfortunate, as the fried chicken was excellent and I wish all of our guests could have tried it. Given that the contract stated that a 10% overage would be prepared to make sure that there was enough food, and that this was not “leftovers” to take home, it was disappointing to have such small portions served to our guests. Given that 3 guests were absent, there should have been plenty of food to go around.
Our other concerns are regarding a few of the food items, not reflecting what we had discussed.
Perhaps this was just at our table, but we noticed that neither of our appetizers had the included sauces (shallot marmalade & mushroom ketchup). Perhaps they just got missed on ours before they came out. I found that my duck was tough and it could have really used a sauce.There was a least one table that only got one of the appetizers offered to them, which was unacceptable.
The first course was intended to be a Broccoli, Kale, Apple & Cranberry Slaw, with Creamy Lemon and Toasted Fennel Dressing, with pumpkin seeds. The salad served, was not a slaw, but a tossed green salad in a simple oil dressing. We had our menus printed in advance, and if the dishes were to be changed, it would have been helpful to know this in to avoid any confusion/ allow us to reprint our menus accordingly.
Although the flank steak was a bit tough to chew, the sauce on it was excellent, again we wished there was more to go around.
In our proposal, there were a few charges, I wanted to confirm still applied.
We were quoted the rate for having 2 chefs on site- Were there indeed 2 chefs present? Unfortunately, I was only able to see Chef Nick, and we didn’t get to connect.
Also, there was a charge for a BBQ rental. It did not appear that there were any items barbequed on site. Perhaps this changed because of the winter?
Given the fact that we were charged the 18% automatic gratuity (which we expected), and the 10% rebooking fee (Due to Covid which was entirely out of our control- original date of July 3rd, 2021), we were left underwhelmed with the quality of the food that was served to our guests.
Please let me emphasize again, how wonderful your front of house service staff were. And I appreciate the time you took to make sure that the items we selected were made to accommodate those with gluten/nut allergies. Unfortunately, at this time, we are feeling as though we are not able to recommend Toque to those we know looking for event food service.
Thank you for considering our feedback.

Top-notch experience with Toque Catering

We hired Toque to cater our wedding at the HCP Gardens. They were professional and easy to work with from the planning to the wedding day itself. We asked for a brunch/lunch menu, and the menu they created was a great fit for our event. The dishes and drinks were all delicious; it was impossible to pick a favorite dish, and we got nothing but positive feedback from our guests afterwards. Their staff were professional, attentive, courteous, and easy to work with, going above and beyond to ensure the day ran smoothly. We would recommend them without hesitation; the food and service was worth every penny!
