"Cheryl and her team did a superb job catering our 50th wedding anniversary celebration which we held at our home. They had done another fabulous job for us two years ago. Each time Cheryl came to our home beforehand and helped us choose food, wine, rental items, and a florist.
This was a three tier event. The party was from 3 till 7. The after party for out of town people and family was in the evening from 7 till about 11. Cheryl’s team also provided all the excellent food we needed for a family breakfast the next morning.
All our guests were highly complementary about the excellence and graciousness of the food and service. From our perspective, the event went as beautifully as ever could be imagined.
We highly recommend Cheryl’s Gourmet Pantry for Catering. Thanks for making it happen, Cheryl, James, Daniel, Meredith, Stephen and also all those who helped beforehand in the kitchen making the great food."

"All of our guests raved about the food and the exceptional service. They said your staff were "on it!" We had comments about how great the bartender was. How everyone was so friendly.
I loved the food. I only wish I had eaten more ;)
The kitchen looked immaculate when you left AND there were scrumptious leftovers which we enjoyed later that evening.
I am so very pleased with your planning, preparation and execution. I will rave about you to anyone who needs catering and you certainly have our business the next time we need something catered."

"Tuscany buffet for 36 people outside. The food was fabulous, the table decor was beautiful and the staff were super friendly, organized and efficient, I heard compliments all evening. What a wonderful celebration!"
Just wanted to let you know how wonderful it is to host a corporate house party for 60 people and have everything exceed expectations. It's been 18 years that we have been using your catering services. When I started hosting our company's celebratory functions, I tried just about every good caterer in the Victoria area. Although many offered great food or service, your company consistently offers an amazing variety of delicious choices with top quality ingredients served by friendly and professional personnel. As the hostess, I especially appreciate waking up the following morning with dishes clean, and very little tidying up. All our guests always look forward to our parties knowing they will experience a fabulous meal. Thank you for making these occasions so stress free for me and memorable for our guests. "

"What a treat it was to have Cheryl and her experts cater my condo warming party! I have lived and entertained in the states for some years and to find Cheryl's Gourmet Pantry for this event in Victoria was a blessing. The food was not only beautiful - but delicious. I was impressed how much was cooked on the spot - and served hot and tasty. Bartender and servers were professional yet friendly. Because of my limited serving area - everything was passed - and no one went too long without another delicious morsel being served. I look forward to the treat of having Cheryl and company back for another party, Thank you to all! "
"Cheryl has done several events for our family. She is creative and her staff is professional, hard working and helpful.
She will design food for your tastes and budget, and is easy to work with. When the party is over, your guests will be satisfied and your kitchen will be clean. What more could anyone want?"

"Cheryl and her team catered an afternoon birthday and housewarming party for us and it was the nicest party we have ever had. Many people present that day whom we have spoken with since tell us it was the nicest party they have been to.
Every part of our dealings with Cheryl and her team was excellent and lovely. We met with Cheryl to discuss the food and service we wanted and together with her we chose delicious gourmet food and the perfect amount of service. Her staff is as fine as she is. They helped arrange the furniture to best advantage and made adjustments as needed when the musicians began to play. The chef was calm and excellent. The bartender and food server invited people to partake in the most gracious ways. They seamlessly left us appropriate food for our guests who stayed into the evening. They came back to take away the serving items that need to be returned to them exactly when they said they would.
We will ask this fine team into our home to help with parties as often as we need help. They are a five star outfit at a fair and reasonable price. What they did for us was to give us a priceless memory.
Thanks very much"

"We recently had Cheryl and her wonderful crew cater our daughter's wedding. The event was truly first class! The abllolutely delicious food was prepared and served very professionally by polite and pleasant staff. Our guests commented on superb it all was.
Thank you Cheryl for helping make wonderful memories."
"After having lived together for 15 years we decided to be married. It was to be a small family and friends event. We decided on a late morning service with a champagne brunch. Cheryl’s Gourmet Pantry was approached to do the catering. Cheryl was amazing! She helped put the menu together and took into account both gluten free and vegan needs. The day of the wedding could not have been more perfect – a beautiful presentation with wonderful and professional staff. Needless to say we were thrilled and so were our guests."

"Dear Cheryl & Staff,
Please know my husband and I were beyond thrilled with the service you provided to us. It seems that you went above and beyond reasonable expectations of a paying client.
What a great party! Everyone commented on the food and I recommended your service all through the evening."
