On May 29th of this year my wife and I decided to have her mothers “celebration of life” party at Louis’ Bistro on Harbourside Drive in North Vancouver. The choice couldn’t have worked out better! The venue was perfect for our gathering of about 60, with awesome inside and outside areas, and the food = amazing, the staff were there but not and super friendly and efficient. Marnie and Gabriel looked after every request and detail with a smile.
We dealt with Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering for a suprise birthday party for my mother. From the start of the planning process I found Ariana to be helpful, responsive and easy to work with. The event was held in their Bistro space and the outcomes were fantastic. The food was incredible and the set up beautiful. The wait staff were courteous and dietary accommodations were made for any with special requests. It was a wonderful event and I can’t say enough great things about our dealing with Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering! Thank you to all who were involved for their hard work
The bistro specials that happen weekly are good enough to bring me in regularly, the staff are great in the bistro and the patio is a great place to relax while having lunch. My first experience was with the catering team which truly was amazing. They are attentive to the needs of their clients even under tight time restraints. The food and quality of service has kept me using their services.
I recently hosted a Graduation Party for my daughter at the Bistro at Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering. All evening the guests were coming up to me exclaiming on how wonderful the food was and asking how had I discovered them. I would have no hesitation in using Louis Gervais Fine Foods for any of my catering needs and would like to thank Jennifer for helping me to organize this special event.
We had Louis Gervais Catering cater a cocktail party at our home. The food was lovely, many of our guests commented on it. The staff who came, a chef, bartender and server, were wonderful. I would definitely use them again, for any occasion.
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!

We have used Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering for a number of corporate events and we have always been more than pleased with their excellent service and high quality, fresh, delicious food. At our most recent event our staff raved about how good the food was, particularly the mushroom ravioli. Ariana was a pleasure to work with, highly professional, phone calls confirming everything was taken care of and genuinely cares about the customer. I highly recommend Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering, you will not be disappointed!
Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering provided their catering service for our private birthday party event. This was my first time dealing with them but definitely not my last. They sent four people to assist: a Chef, bartender, lead server, and server. The staff were focused and on the ball in every aspect. They listened to all instructions and came through 100% on everything. All catering staff were polite, respectful, kept their head down to get the job done professionally. Looking forward to the next event with Louis Gervais!
Having sought quotes from 3 companies, I selected Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering to provide their catering service for my surprise birthday party for my wife at our home with 45 guests. This was my first time dealing with Louis Gervais and it was a pretty challenging situation (including needing a fair amount of logistical advice to pull it off without a hitch and in a relatively small party area). From the moment I spoke with Ariana, it was evident that she wanted to deliver on my vision for the party. Everything was perfect. The food, the quality of her staff, the enthusiasm they had the night of the party, and the setup left nothing for me to worry about. If you want a perfect party, call Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering. You won’t be disappointed.
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!!

As a wedding photographer I have been to many venues and this was a great on. I can truly say the food and services amazed me even on a New Year eve. Hats off to the team and management, for sure I will take my family and friends to Louis Gervais Fine Foods – a great fine dinning experience.

Louis Gervais catered our wedding, in Richmond, on Aug 23, 2015 and I can honestly say that my experience with them throughout the initial contact, the planning phase and the execution on the day of our wedding, was ‘exceptional’. The Event Planner was absolutely great to deal with. She was thorough, accommodating, professional and an overall joy to work with. How many companies call you 2 days before your event to confirm the time that they will arrive at the venue and then follow up with an email that lists all of their contact information (names & cell numbers) so should you need to contact them you know they are there for you.
The food was ‘divine’ and our guests are still talking abut it. A few of the comments are: “The food was fabulous; who are these caterers?”; “OMG the food …. where did you find them?”and “your Caterers were amazing”.
We also can’t say enough good things about our Chef and Servers, they were delightful:
The Chef, was experienced, comfortable and very competent, even for being in a strange, but well designed, kitchen. The wedding venue was outside by the pool of a friend’s private home and at the end of the evening the Chef even washed their Kitchen floor before leaving; simply amazing!
The Servers were on top of their game, efficiently handling and serving the Champagne for the Toasts and the Canapé Food Service that followed. Both Servers interacted with our guests with such good humour while maintaining a level of professionalism. They made all of our guests feel comfortable and ‘everyone’ loved them.
This is, bar none, one of the best companies I have ever dealt with and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Great job & Kudos to your staff!
Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering saved the day for my sister’s surprise wedding. With only 10 days notice, Louis and his team provided us with an amazing menu that catered to the couple’s food and budget requests. They assisted with rentals, delivery and pick up and truly went beyond our expectations to make my sister’s day so special. Not only was the food incredibly delicious, the service was efficient and generous which helped make the day effortless and simply perfect. Our family is certainly gracious for our experience and I would highly recommend this wonderful catering team!
Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering catered our Summer Party at our home on July 26, 2015. Its representative visited with us prior to the event to review the venue. The representatives of Gervais Fine Foods did an excellent job on the day of the event. They took over the kitchen and organized the rooms for convenient distribution of food and beverages.. The guests repeatedly commented on the high quality of the food. The Gervais representatives were extremely pleasant and efficient. We highly recommend Gervais Fine Foods for any catering event.
I recently used Louis Gervais Fine Foods & Catering to cater my husband’s surprise birthday party! Everything was perfect – the food was delicious and the servers were top-rate! In addition to wonderful food, Louis Gervais took care of rentals, set up, clean up and a cash bar. They ensured the evening was enjoyed by all and I would definitely use them again.
We had Louis Gervais cater our wedding and we are so happy we went with them. From our tasting to the actual wedding day dinner everything was so great. Our guests are talking about how great the food was and how they loved everything from the appys to the plated meal. Elisa was so easy to talk to, everything seemed to go so smooth thru the whole process. They knew that my husband was really looking forward to the little grilled cheese bites with tomato soup shot so they even packed some away in the limo when we went to do photos and left some up at the head table when we got back. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needed an event catered and will using them again myself. We also used Louis Gervais for our engagement party and everything was perfect and stress free and the food again was amazing.
Louis Gervais recently catered our wedding and they blew it OUT OF THE PARK. We served breakfast for dinner and honestly, nearly a month later people are still talking about how awesome it was. Our appies were outstanding and for the main course we served chicken and waffles, yogurt parfaits (with the best homemade granola I’ve ever had) and build your own breakfast burritos. For dessert we had ice cream sandwiches with not one but three types of cookies. The late night snack were grilled cheese sandwiches with amazing homemade ketchup and BBQ sauce. Every dish was fresh, delicious, made with quality ingredients. They were able to accommodate our vegan and gluten-free friends as well; everyone left so satisfied with what they ate. Their service — everything from working with Nicole to arrange the menu to the service day of was more than we could have expected. They went over and above every step of the way. Go get yourself a grilled cheese at their cafe and you’ll see what I mean. SO. GOOD!
Our heartfelt thank you for Catering our Staff Appreciation Event. You made great efforts to accommodate us in our special dietary needs. I want to thank you so much for the delicious food, beautiful buffet set up and your wonderful staff. We received an enormous amount of compliments of the overall service you provided.
