Getting compliments is one way to know you are doing a gthank youreat job. Here’s some of the feedback we’ve received on our catering services from our customers and clients:

Simply Savory Team

Simply Savory Team

“I was very fortunate to discover Simply Savory Catering and “highly” recommend their expertise! This was my first experience planning an event of this size and from the moment I initially spoke with Gabriela, I trusted that we were in good hands. As Event Coordinator, she answered all of my questions & concerns in a timely, friendly and professionally manner.  She assured me that we would have delicious food, plenty of it and that we would be sure to impress our guests. Chef’s Carrie & Brett did not disappoint – the food was outstanding and the service matched it!!

Carrie immediately made me feel comfortable, confident and calm with the process, she was extremely organized.  Our menu was a combination of Station Appetizers and Passed Appetizers. The presentation was beautiful – the table arranged in a tiered style adorned with lovely fresh flowers and every inch of space covered with exquisite appetizers.  To maximize our space, Carrie & Gabiela arranged to have both station and tray passed appetizers. Professional staff mingled amongst our guests carrying trays full of fresh & impressive items – from Chicken Pesto on a Crostine, Caprese Rustic Tarts, Salmon Fish Cakes and the most popular and delicious of all … the Mini Beef Yorky!!

We were so happy and proud to hear the amazing feedback from our clients during and following our function.  With the help of Simply Savory Catering, our event turned out as we had hoped – a chance to treat our clients to something very special, classy and worthy of talking about!  Thank you so much Carrie, Brett, Gabriela & staff and we look forward to working again with you in the future.  This is “bar none” the best catering company I have had the pleasure to work with and hope that others are lucky enough to experience what they have to offer. ”

Carrie, Brett Jarvis and their team did an amazing job for our daughter and son in law’s Wedding Reception. The Team was friendly, upbeat, professional, dependable and very accommodating. They really know what they are doing which was all done First Class.   The food was delicious and the presentation was as good as it tasted. We will definitely use Simply Savory Valley Catering again and recommend them to family and friends!!

“Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the simply savory crew for the amazing job they did catering my wedding! Right from the first meeting everyone I communicated with was so helpful helping me plan every last detail of my menu exactly how I wanted it! At the wedding everyone kept telling me how delicious the food was and how polite the staff were! And Gabriela, there aren’t enough words to describe how incredible she was!! I did not have a day coordinator but honestly I’m glad I didn’t! Gabriela helped with literally almost everything! From making sure my tables looked perfect to organizing my bridal party to fluffing my dress before I walked down the aisle and even personally serving me my dinner!!! I couldn’t have asked for anything more, seriously the best decision I made hiring you guys the day just wouldn’t have run as smoothly as it did without you!”

“Just wanted to say a quick thank you for everything you guys went above and beyond the call of duty it was amazing! Everyone kept telling me how awesome the food was, they said everything had so much flavour and was awesome! They said the appetizers were to die for too! So thank you again you guys did an amazing job on everything I couldn’t have been happier!!!”


We used Simply Savory for our wedding. Although there was a wind storm that caused a power outage, Carrie and Brett didn’t miss a beat, and did what needed to be done to still give us the amazing meal we hoped for! Everyone at our wedding commented on how great the food was, and we would recommend you guys to anyone!”

EJ Ravenstein

“Thank you so much to Carrie, Brett, Gabriela and all the awesome staff at Simply Savory. Even though the power went out just as dinner was cooking for my daughter’s wedding, they managed to pull it all together and have it ready on time. Everyone was talking about how tasty the food was and how they wished that they’d had room for more! For anyone looking for great catering at an affordable price, these are the people to go to. Thanks again to you all.”

L. Campbell

“Your company catered our daughter’s wedding last Saturday (Natascha & John). The food was out of this world!!! Had so many guest compliment on how great it was. Gabriela and her crew were amazing. We would highly recommend your company and Gabriela to anyone! Thanks again for making our event a huge success.”

Sincerely, Randy

“I had these wonderful people cater my wedding in August. The other day my uncle said “the prime rib at your wedding was the best prime rib I have ever eaten at any restaurant in my entire life” …. The food was so amazing and the feedback was absolutely astounding. The food was something we were very nervous about (which is relatively normal as it is important to please your guests) but they absolutely killed it!!!!!!!’ I have already suggested them to a few other couples and other members of my family have as well!!! Thank you for making my day so amazing.”

S. Swartsman

“To the team of Simply Savory, Thank you so much! Our wedding last Friday was so amazing and we absolutely loved your delicious food. All of our guests raved about your food. The mac and cheese made my wedding! Your service was impeccable and I will recomended you to everyone. Thank you.”

G. Doerksen

“Your food was incredibly delicious!!! We had so many of our guests comment about how they’ve never had such amazing food at a wedding before! Our photographer even gushed about your food in her blog. Again, we can’t say thank you enough for wonderful food and the awesome service of your staff as well.”

Jessica & Andrew Gray

From the blog of Jamie Delaine:

Guests enjoyed (okay, and me too!) an incredible dinner spread by Simply Savory Catering. I can’t recommend them enough. The selection was just right – with salmon, beef, multiple salads, rice, pasta, vegetables and fresh buns. Mmmm! The dessert was just as good.

“Have you ever just met someone and it feels like you’ve known them forever? That’s what it was like when we meet Carrie and Brett. We were invited to their home for a sample dinner to do some tasting and we were made to feel right at home. They’re WONDERFUL cooks and know what they are doing. They grow a lot of their own herbs and buy what’s in season so the end result is fresh, flavourful and fantastic food. They are friendly, informative and are definitely people you can work with to have your special occasion be outstanding and everything you dreamed.”

Cheers, Whitney
