Customer Testimonials

"To say that Vatering is exceptional at providing for customized catering needs would be the biggest understatement. Head chef and owner Wally Vaters consistently delivers delicious and generous, fairly priced, and creative but accessible meals. He is so much more than a chef, he is the epitome of a host, hiring a team who take care of every need for your party. I have been fortunate enough to attend 6 events, including my own wedding where Vatering provided the meal service, and with each one, I am continually amazed by this local, small business. Thank you for providing the most amazing food for our wedding!"

"Thank you for a great reception. The organization was excellent, the food was very tasty and the munching table was perfectly placed. I saw a few eating while the speeches taking place which was great. 

Thank you for what you do for our community. We truly rely on you for the quality food and service. Nice to have our friends and neighbours helping you out, they are so gracious and wonderful with our guests and their friends as well.
