“John’s catering services are 5 star”

I have had the pleasure of using John’s service or enjoying his service many times now.  The food is always fresh, interesting, presented very well and everything tastes so good!!  He is very meticulous in your home, comes fully prepared with his own equipment and serving platters, cleans as he goes and ensures everything is tidy when he is done.  He is a true professional and would highly recommend him.  I have referred him to others for their functions and they have all been equally as pleased.

John’s catering services are 5 star. He personally catered our mother’s surprise 80th birthday party and we couldn’t have been more satisfied. Delicious hors d’oeurves, gorgeous presentation, no worries, right price.  John’s a pleasure to work with. You and your guests will love him!

Last year I hosted a special evening for a group of 10 ladies who were all celebrating their 50th birthday year. I wanted the evening to be special and worry free. John and Stefan catering provided an unforgettable evening! John was very accessible and helpful in helping plan the menu. We had several dietary restrictions and John was able to provide the most delicious sit down gluten free dinner and desserts!!  The presentation was very professional and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. John even provided menus for everyone to complete the table setting. I have had the opportunity to experience this caterer on several occasions and am always very pleased with everything they provide. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for delicious food and true professionalism.

“Our guests were commenting for days & weeks following our party about how tasty John’s creations were!”

Outstanding catering business! We were super impressed as John is friendly, flexible, personable, creative, and provided us with a plethora of options for hors d’oeuvres for our party. The variety of tastes was fabulous. His clean-up was second to none and he was both reliable and punctual. Our guests were commenting for days & weeks following our party about how tasty John’s creations were! Suggestion: ask John to tuck away a few choice items so that you can enjoy them the next day since as a host/hostess, you sometimes don’t have a chance to delight your taste buds with his special food-items before your guests scoop them up! PS: His mini-fish-tacos are fantastic!

 “If you are considering to have a function catered, I would, without a shadow of a doubt, highly recommend these two fine young men”

Two summers ago, on short notice I asked John if he Stefan would be able to cater a special surprise party event that I was throwing for my wife. They gladly and willingly accepted and presented my guests and friends with an outstanding selection of finger food appetizers. I received numerous compliments from the guests remarking, how delicious and exquisite the selection was. If you are considering to have a function catered, I would without a shadow of a doubt highly recommend these two fine young men”

My family and friends and I have had the pleasure of having John cater several functions for us in the last few years. John is happy to prepare and deliver the exact menu you select but if you give him free reign to create his own menu or appetizers, the results are amazing.  Fresh ingredients, delicious, mouth-watering recipes and creative presentation.  He had to take food allergies and dietary restrictions into account for us and did a fantastic job.  Whether it’s a cocktail party, backyard barbeque, special event or even a street party, he can do it all!

 I wanted to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU for the amazing job creating an array of delicious treats for my birthday lunch with my friends!  Everyone is still chatting about the selection, your creativity and the treat to our taste buds! You were fantastic, arriving early and being so comfortable in my kitchen, you just took all the stress of entertaining away and made the day such a memorable one!  Even when trying to choose what to serve, you were incredibly helpful in finding dishes that complimented each other, all a little different, all very fresh and colorful! We will be planning another event in the next little while and without a doubt, we will be hoping that you and your team are available!”

“We have worked with John and Stefan Catering for professional and private events, and have highly recommended their services to friends and family.  They are extremely professional, with great chefs and staff, and consistently under promise and over deliver”

Chris McDonald, President, Hot Docs Festival, Toronto, ON

Thank you for the amazing job you did on the meal and the service you provided at our last dinner party.  A perfect evening!!

Joan & Gary, Oakville, ON

We had hired John and his team to present an evening dinner experience for a company Christmas party for about 30 people in our home.  I was worried about the variety of cultures in our group and what kind of mess our house would be left in.  There was absolutely nothing to worry about.  The event went way beyond our expectations.  John helped with our choices, made all the arrangements for the details, served a spectacular meal, and then had our home back to normal – nothing for us to do.  It was an amazing experience and brilliantly prepared and presented.  Everyone raved about the event and we are having him back next year.

 Riccardo and I were extremely impressed with your Catering. From the beginning to the end the planning and service was impeccable and the food was outstanding! Everyone loved the food and the presentation. Several people asked for your info which I gladly passed along. This is one secret that I do not want to keep to myself! Thanks again for an awesome job! You made the event! You are truly a delight and a pleasure to work with and we can’t wait to have you cater for us again.

 “[John and Stefan] took all the stress of entertaining away and made the day such a memorable one!”

John came highly recommended to us when my husband and I were making plans for our son and future daughter-in-law’s rehearsal party.  We were amazed at the wonderful selection of hors d’oeuvres he offered; a variety of so many interesting and unusual combinations that made it difficult to choose.  The food was so delicious that each dish was gobbled up within seconds of being presented.  John was wonderful to work with in preparing for this event; very responsive to all our questions, and completely organized and prepared on the night of our party.  He even cleaned up everything so thoroughly, you would never know someone spent the evening cooking and preparing dishes in the kitchen.  We were able to relax and enjoy the food and drinks as much as our guests and that was the best part of all.  We will definitely hire John for another function and would recommend him to anyone looking for exemplary catering services.

My family and friends celebrated my 80th birthday at the popular picturesque bed and breakfast inn, Serenity Ranch, near Hamilton. The icing on the cake, at the event was the food.  John Black of John and Stefan Catering astounded us with the most delicious hors d’oeuvres  I have tasted in my 80 years.  Everyone commented on the originality of the tasty bites and the professional deliverance.  We give John 5 stars

I was first introduced to John & Stefan Catering at a family event in July of 2013. I was very impressed with how the food was presented and tasted, I am sure my taste buds have never encountered such happiness…I have since worked with John & Stefan Catering and I highly recommend them. Best decision you can make today….

  “The most delicious hors d’oeuvres  I have tasted in my 80 years”

John and Stefan are proven professionals with their great flavors, exciting dishes and beautiful presentation.  Their service is clean, efficient and reliable. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking to have a catering experience that goes above and beyond.

  1. John is the best! He catered an engagement party for us in April 2017 and it was by far the best catered event that I have hosted. While planning the party, John was most helpful with our many questions and helped us narrow down our selection. The result: the hors d’oeuvres were outstandingly delicious, unique & abundant! In addition, John created a dish with ease to accommodate a dietary restriction. The presentation was second to none – John artfully created while Jennifer served with grace & ease. There was not a morsel left at the end of the night – a testament to how much everyone enjoyed his culinary creations. If you want your event to be memorable, I highly recommend John and his team.

  2. Using John & Stefan Catering was the best decision I made for my event! I organized a 25th anniversary party for my parents with 60+ guests, so I was a bit nervous, but John was so helpful and accommodating. They ensured that I had everything I needed and worked with my a budget to create a delicious meal. I was actually all set to go with a different catering company, but when I heard about John & Stefan I immediately switched and am so glad that I did! My guests raved about the food. The quality of food and customer service was equally spectacular, and I will definitely be ordering from here again in the future!
