Calgary Catering Reviews
Working with Simply Elegant was amazing! I highly recommend using them for any event you have in mind. They will work with you to understand your needs and deliver an end product that goes beyond your expectations – worry free. Peter and his staff did a spectacular job with the food, set up, accessories, and the presentation was beyond visually appealing. I cannot say enough good things about my overall experience. I would hire them in a heartbeat for our next event. We held a professional workshop with a very eclectic group within our industry and our entire audience raved about their experience. These are people who hold a high standard for beautiful things with style and quality. A true success. Thank you team! Working with you was the easiest part of the planning process. Peter your food was delicious and so well presented. Looking forward to working with you in the future!
Absolutely loved them the two times so far using [Simply Elegant] for corporate events. I love that they drop off and pick up. My department raved about the quality and selection of food! I look like a genius for choosing Simply Elegant. I also love that I have called Peter with a budget and he comes back with an exceptional menu. So pleasant to deal with, food is awesome!
The luncheon was absolutely wonderful – can’t thank you enough for everything you and your staff did. The service was perfect and the food fabulous! I always look forward to working with you and can’t wait for 2014 and what that all brings!
I have been working closely with the catering staff at Simply Elegant for over 8 months now, and every time I deal with them, it is nothing but a pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable, they can answer any question I ever have. They are very fast and efficient when it comes to ordering food and make the entire experience easy and painless.
Their menu has a lot of different options to choose from and are very flexible when certain needs are required. They have many options that can be used for different occasions/events.
I truly enjoy working closely with Simply Elegant when it comes to arranging food for clients and very glad to have that relationship with them.
I used Simply Elegant over several years for small social gatherings in my home and office. The staff were amazing in assisting me in planning the events. Their recommendations for food items and quantity were always exactly right. The food was delivered on time and staff often helped in arranging things with me.
“Every time I used Simply Elegant the food was OUTSTANDING! Beautiful presentation and fantastic flavours made for a memorable experience by my guests and me. I no longer live in Calgary but know that I would immediately call Simply Elegant if I needed to do an event upon my return.
I was very impressed with everything. Your staff was extremely organized and attentive. The food was amazing and my guests were very pleased. The extra help that Kate provided pouring wine and clearing plates was so appreciated. So thank you for helping to make my Mom’s birthday so special. I will definitely be contacting you in the future as I also hold quite a few client events for my job and am always in need of good catering.
THANK YOU so very much for the delicious food that you and your team provided for our event in Calgary! Working with Simply Elegant was a breeze! The pricing was fair, follow-up and contact with us was spot on, and the food did not disappoint! We will most definitely use Simply Elegant next time we do an event in Calgary, and we will spread the word as well!
I booked Simply Elegant Catering for my Parent’s Anniversary party and was extremely pleased with the service and the food. Everything on the buffet was delicious and the guests were commenting on the food all night. If I ever need to cater another function, I will definitely be using Simply Elegant again.
We recently had Simply Elegant cater a “Celebration of Llfe” for us. They put together a great menu and took care of all the details so we didn’t have to worry about anything. They put everything together with very short notice. It wasn’t a problem at all. Everyone enjoyed the food and the catering staff were excellent. I would highly recommend using Simply Elegant to anyone.
We selected Simply Elegant as our caterers for a cocktail function of 250 people. They were flawless. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent and they were a “one stop shop” for us taking care of linens, table rentals, alcohol, etc. We are a non-profit and they worked within our budget which we greatly appreciated. They were flexible with changes and were extremely professional throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend them for an event of any size.
We tried the new corporate catering menu for our office lunch meeting yesterday. The guys really enjoyed the new sandwiches! We tried the Pulled Chicken Pesto, Smoked Turkey and Shaved Roast Beef with a side of the Orzo Roasted Vegetable salad. Even my really fussy guys enjoyed it! One of the guys even said the pesto chicken was his new favorite sandwich. I personally got to enjoy some of the orzo salad and half of a vegetarian sandwich; I’m not sure how you made that grilled tomato so delicious but it was juicy and oh so good!! Just thought I’d let you know we really enjoyed it 🙂 We will be ordering for our corporate lunch again soon!
I have been doing business with Simply Elegant for 7 years and, my company as a whole, for 15+ years; since its inception. I have always found the staff pleasant, professional and helpful. They bend backwards to try to accommodate our needs.
The deliveries are always timely. When they are going to be a bit late (5-10 minutes), they call ahead to notify us. I believe that we receive good quality/price ratio. The invoicing system is topnotch and almost glitch-free. Our firm is very demanding and requests change frequently on a daily basis and the staff at Simply Elegant is always able to service our demands.
Of all the different vendors our company utilizes on a regular basis, I can honestly say that Simply Elegant is the best and the one company we give 90% of our business to for these same reasons. Most companies out there claim to place the customers first and foremost but many do not follow up on their claims. Not Simply Elegant.
When dealing with them, one can truly see that their clients are the most prized aspect of their business. I will never hesitate to recommend them. Hats off to you all guys!!!
Thanks again for your help during the floods! The feedback for food and service was great.
It was wonderful to have Simply Elegant cater our family wedding.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sharon and Peter who were very kind, respectful and always ready to answer any of my questions.
The food was exceptional and all our guests had only excellent things to say.
The staff went above and beyond! Kind to all the guests, very professional and were constantly checking in to make sure we had everything we needed.
I would absolutely recommend them to my family and friends.
Thank you Simply Elegant for being a part of our special day.
Simply Elegant, the name says it all. From start to finish service was executed at a very high standard. Despite the weather Rob, Peter, Jade and the rest of the Simply Elegant team were fabulous in putting things together and seeing it run smoothly for our June 25th event. Great eye for detail and were in tune to what we were looking to achieve. Sharon, “Dame Extraordinaire”. Merci beacoup! Mere hours before our ceremony last minute request were being sent and she was able to make it happen. Words are not sufficient to describe our gratitude nor the the quality of service we received. Whether your event is on a small or large scale these are the people you go to. They make visions a reality.

I would like to pass on to you how excellent the food was. Everyone raved about it. There were comments that it was better than the Sheraton, where we usually have our party. The turkey was moist, potatoes were good and the gravy was the best. There was one person who usually doesn’t like gravy and she commented how good it was a few times. I just wanted you to know as most often in a business like this you only hear the bad things.
Dear Peter and Simply Elegant Staff, It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you so much for such wonderful service and food. I want to say a special thank you to your staff at the wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of so we could enjoy the wedding. Thank you.
To the Simply Elegant Team: You made our wedding day special – it meant so much! Thank you to each and all. Your team at our reception and dinner were outstanding, serving and pampering our guests! The tables looked “Simply Elegant” and so many commented on the wonderful dinner.
The catering was awesome. Everybody loved the food and none was left. Marc went above and beyond to help me and kept a constant eye on the ladies to keep their drinks full and the food replenished. He made himself comfortable in my kitchen and even made coffee! Marc was Perfection. All the staff commented on how personable he was as well as the food and of course the ambiance…my wonderfully decorated house all played a part in a fabulous Christmas get-together. I will not hesitate to use you again…my husband was even thinking about using you for one of his office parties next Christmas so I don’t have to cook. I might use you for a garden party this summer. Thank you for making everything work out this year and I retained my title of “hostess with the mostess” once again!
The CABA event came off without a hitch. Excellent service and delicious food has been provided by the staff of Simply Elegant. My compliments to all involved. I highly recommend using Simply Elegant to other organizations and groups.
I just love simpy elegant catering ! They do magnificent floral decorations and provide you with ideas for your event, you would never think of yourself !!
The service provided by Sharon and Peter is very professional and they know what they are talking about guiding you through your entire event !
I can highly recommend this catering company for your next event !!!
Thank you for the great service Simply Elegant !!
Excellent service for a small gathering. Showed up on time and catered to our needs. Staff was able to go with the flow when needed – food was excellent and house was left spotless. Can’t thank you enough – such a great experience.
After speaking with a number of other caterers, we were referred to Simply Elegant by the catering consultant at SAIT. It’s great to hear other industry members make such impromtu referrals and Peter was fantastic to work with. He understood the scope of our event, our guests, and worked to make every detail a simple one. The onsite staff were efficient and very helpful. Set up and tear down was very well executed and the food was delicious. They dealt with a small prep and service area and delivered a great experience.
In an industry with mandatory auto gratuities, Simply Elegant leaves that up to the client based on service received. This is a group that deserves over and above.
I recently contracted Simply Elegant to do the catering for my wedding and from the first step a year prior and right until the end I was completely satisfied with my service. Peter was incredibly helpful and offered so much advice and let me customize and then change my menu a few times with no problems, he even remembered me mentioning my husband had dietary restrictions and accommodated his needs without being asked. Everyone I spoke with was friendly, professional and very helpful. They day of my wedding with off without a hitch in regards to the role Simply Elegant played. They knew exactly what they were doing and I was able to enjoy my day with confidence that no issues would arise.
If you’re looking for catering, definitely choose Simply Elegant.
Simply Elegant has been our ‘go to’ caterer for the past seven years. Whether serving a BBQ lunch to a crowd of 600+ or an intimate Board function, they have customized their menus and service to meet our exact needs. Hospice Calgary wholeheartedly commends Simply Elegant as a caterer of choice.
At Astoria Homes we use Simply Elegant Catering when we require a business lunch. The service is fantastic, courteous staff, excellent food and great value.
