Encore Food with Elegance

5 of 5 stars

We have worked with Cary and his company for over thirty years covering all kinds of milestone celebrations as a family. The food is consistently excellent. When Cary recommends something --it is always great! I enjoy putting the time and effort into making a festive party and Cary and Encore are always the first people I call because they are excellent, innovative, knowledgeable and reliable. People ALWAYS comment on the delicious food. Yesterday's large, baby naming party was held at home on a very warm day. Again Cary had it covered. His staff has always been great, courteous people who know how to transform an event, work efficiently and professionally. Encore are 'the people to call' if you're looking for great food and are interested in enjoying your own event.

5.0 star rating 8/11/2015 Encore catered a baby shower I hosted for my daughter this past Sunday and it would be remiss of me if I did not share with everyone what a wonderful job they did. From the owner Cary to his assistant Rina, the amazing staff that arrived to handle everything and the most delicious food I cannot say enough about this wonderful experience. They made my day worry free and with all the guests raving and letting me know it was the best baby shower that they had ever been to. Thank you Encore. Please do not hesitate to use this company for any of your catering needs. From the bottom to the top, total professionals

As a wedding planner for Koral Lane Events, I am constantly working along side many catering vendors on a weekly base. And after this glamour wedding this past weekend, I can confidently say that Encore Catering has by far surpassed them all. They paid meticulous attention to detail from ensuring that all guest with dietary needs and allergies where well taken care while at the same time producing plates that looked like pieces of art. And not only did the food look good, it set everyone's taste buds on fire. All the guests had no words, because they were too busy licking their plates and anticipating the next course. Bravo Encore, you definitely had us wanting more!

We had an outstanding party! It was like a Hollywood Movie party. The weather was beautiful, sunny, warm and with no mosquitoes. Your food was marvelous. Our guests totally enjoyed the canapés, dinner and desserts. They ate like "horses." Mysterion, who you recommended, was a big hit with the kids of 5 up to adults of 75. The sweet table was excellent and looked beautiful as well. People loved having many sugar free desserts to choose from. Everyone likes to be cared for. It was a marvelous party, where everyone had fun!! Thanks for all your efforts, suggestions, planning and of course the marvelous food and service.

Mary Michelis, Manager, Learning & Development

Dear David and the Encore Team, I just wanted to send you a letter to thank you for your continued hard work and help with our class lunches! The food is always superb - and I know our limited budget means you have to flex your creative culinary muscles. We've been told more than once our budget limits us to "sandwiches and salad" but Encore consistently comes up with ways to add variety and seasonality to our menus and presentation. I constantly receive compliments on your food, and as the Manager of Learning and Development, it puts me at ease to know that your team can deliver to multiple locations simultaneously and on time! I am continually grateful for the ease at which you are able to accommodate our sometimes short notice requests! I am very happy to recommend Encore to any corporate client you may have looking for a reliable and delicious catering experience.

Vanessa Kong, CHRP Human Resources, Mac Cosmetics

Dear David, A little thank you note to you and your team for all the hard work and timely response to any issues that arose. The food was excellent and the rave reviews are endless. Customer service was excellent as well. It was a lovely evening and a great start to the upcoming holiday season.

Dear Cary, On behalf of the Board of Management and the staff of St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, we would like to thank you very much for your support of our 40th Anniversary Gala. The reviews were unanimously positive about every aspect of the evening, from the catering, beverages and atmosphere, to the fantastic entertainment. Quite simply, we could not have done it without you and your company's generous donation. Thanks again and have a great summer.

Susan Angelidis, Nike Canada Corp

Encore Food with Elegance has continued to provide exceptional service to Nike Canada. Their knowledge and expertise is trusted and respected, always giving us the reassurance that the event will be executed without a glitch. Encore's staff has always been commended for their attention to detail and addressing our every need. Most important is their ability to address the food requirements for such a diverse organization such as Nike's. They are able to provide unique and creative menus to reflect the various ethnicities within the organization and continue to provide the utmost quality in their food. Nike Canada highly recommends Encore Food with Elegance to any organization in fulfilling their catering needs. The quality and service that they provide far exceeds our expectations every time.

David, I wanted to take a moment to once again express our thanks to you for a job well done. Your suggestions on how to set up the house worked very well, the menu was creative, came out piping hot and tasted great, and the staff were all very pleasant and accommodating. We received many compliments on the lunch and we were sure to tell everyone that Encore had done the catering. Looking forward to working with you again.
