As an Event Planner I know the impact catering can make on an event and I rely on excellent caterers to help me ensure that my clients and their guests have an amazing experience! It’s for this reason that I LOVE working with the Louis Gervais Fine Foods + Catering team. Not only is the food always awesome but the service is top notch as well -from the start of the planning process all the way through the event itself. Chef Louis, his Coordinators Ariana + Jennifer, and the whole team put so much passion and hard work into what they do and it shows every time!

It was a blast !!!  Everybody really enjoyed the cooking class last night, we learned a few tricks and lots of laughs with wine in hand.

This concept of interacting in a fun way as a group while having the pleasure of cooking and eating is fabulous. A big thank you to your cheerful team, and especially Louis with his fun approach to things. I so much appreciate a positive approach just like I do at my business here, and with Louis one can feel his passion for cooking and life, and I love that.

The evening was such a great success, thank you so much. My staff can’t stop talking about it 🙂

We had a last minute Corporate Christmas function for 85 people in our home. Jennifer Greenman was our first contact. She handled our account start to finish & not a detail was missed. She was a pleasure to deal with. The first menu sent hit every mark, the rentals were perfect, the staff gracious & Chef Louis’ food Fantastic. To make it even better if that’s possible it looked like the party hadn’t even happened the next day….super cleanup!! A huge thank you to all involved!!

Words cannot explain how happy we were with Louis Gervais Fine Foods as our catering company for our wedding. We were planning the wedding in Vancouver from Australia, so the stress could have been really high but starting from the email response when I first approached them for a quote, Louis Gervais stood out from all the other catering companies that I contacted. This was followed with genuine follow through as well!!! When we got to Vancouver, with only three weeks leading up to the wedding, they had everything organized for us. We were greeted by the kitchen staff with such warmth and hospitality. Everything we tasted was sensational and was replicated on our wedding day. Our guests continuously commented on the quantity of the food. With just the few conversations we had leading up to the wedding everything was EXACTLY the way I envisioned it.
Thank you Louis Gervais Fine Foods for making our evening a dream come true!

Louis Gervais Fine Foods and Catering has catered a few of our events in North Vancouver and it has always been a blissfully simple process. The food is excellent and the staff are amazing. Very friendly, capable, and professional people. Nicole, especially, has always helped me find the solutions I need and makes sure everything is just so. I highly recommend!

Tanja Milosevic

LOVE this place, the food and the people. Have been there several times – for a cooking class, for lunch, and they’ve catered two events for us. Just last weekend they catered our daughter’s outdoor wedding reception and the guests raved about the food all night long – a huge success.

They’re always a pleasure to deal with – friendly, attentive and willing to go the extra mile with creativity and attention to detail. Great atmosphere at the shop – excellent service all round and even Chef himself is very welcoming. What I appreciate the most is that they serve good food, prepared very well with no pretentiousness. A breath of fresh air.

There was a range of tastes at the last event – from mid-20’s hipster types to young professionals to aunties from the prairies to urbanites with sophisticated palates. In other words, a tough crowd. And they ALL loved the food.

Everything was on time and exactly as promised or even better. Anyone organizing an event knows that is golden.

It’s worth mentioning that I was involved in producing a series of upscale food and wine events across Canada, working with the top chefs in each city. The folks at Louis Gervais are completely professional and top rate. Highly recommended.

Last year we decided to add a spousal component to our conference. We thought that a cooking class at Louis Gervais would be a great way for everyone to get to know each other and have some fun. Louis was outstanding! He made all the ladies feel welcome and ensured everyone was taken care of. One of the ladies brought her 7 year old son to one of the cooking classes. At the end of the class, Louis gave the boy a child’s size chef‘s jacket and butcher’s apron to take home. The little boy and his Mom were just thrilled! Everyone had a wonderful experience! Thanks for going above and beyond our expectations!

Deborah Reed

You have worked so hard and have been so patient with us! We can’t thank you enough for making our big day such a huge success!!!

Ashia & Marc

Not only does Louis Gervais have wonderful food and excellent delivery for our meetings, the staff knows us all by name and are always ready with a quick smile, kind words and a laugh or two. It is always nice to deal with Louis and his staff and we look forward to continued excellent relations.
