Frequently Asked Questions

Does everyone have to eat the same meal?

Your menu will be pre-determined and guests will be expected to all enjoy the same courses together. We are happy to accommodate dietary needs and offer two protein options for the main course.

Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes, a 50% deposit is due to hold your date, as well as a signed contract we will provide. A credit card will also be required to have on file for unpaid bar tabs or incidentals, if applicable.

How do I make my deposit?
Your deposit will be calculated at the time your menu is decided upon. At that time, it can be made via e-transfer to, no password required. We also accept payment via credit card (for a small fee).

Are deposits refundable or transferable?
No, a deposit is used to hold the date for you and your group, once you have finalized a date changes may not be made to your date.

Can I make changes to the sample menu provided?
Of course! The menu above is merely a sample of what we offer! We can work together to make it work for you, or we can curate a menu specific for your event (additional fees may apply for custom menus). We are also happy to offer signature cocktails and custom bar menus for your next special event.

Off-Site Catering

How long will you be on site?
Typically we arrive 1 - 1.5 hours in advance of your event. Dependent on the number of courses, the meal can last 1 - 2 hours. Usually we depart approximately 30 minutes after the final course.

Do you bring all of your own tools?
Yes! We use induction cookware, and we will bring almost all of what we need to prepare your meals, and anything we do not bring is typical to any family kitchen.

Do you bring dishes and cutlery?
No, place settings and cutlery are the responsibility of the client. If everything doesn’t match, that is perfectly fine. Rentals are also available if desired.

Do you provide the ingredients?
Of course! All ingredients are included in the menu pricing.

Do you clean the kitchen afterwards?
Absolutely! We do a thorough cleaning, and leave your kitchen as clean, or cleaner than when we arrived.
