“Hello Christine, Sincere thanks to you and your team for making our reception so successful. It was a relief to be able to leave this event in your very capable hands. The food was fresh, the menu well chosen, and the amounts just perfect. Also, excellent service and presentation. We will be back in touch with payment. Sincerely, Jane”

“Christine!   Thanks you SO much for everything on Saturday! You and Inna were terrific! The food was amazing, the venue looked perfect. I couldn’t be happier! I had my stressed moments, but you and your staff so quickly sorted things out, I was never left worried as I had every confidence in Tulips and Maple. Please let me know if there are any loose ends to tie, as I hate to leave things hanging, but don’t look forward to our time together ending as it was a pleasure to work with you all. Thanks so much, Holly and Tim”

“I’d like to just share a quick story about a feat of great proportion that I was lucky enough to witness 7 days ago today. Last week a cohesive group of very hard working and talented individuals pulled off one of the largest (and smoothest) catering events I have personally ever been (a very small) part of. This incredible group of people prepared a full course meal for close to 1,200 very important guests. We’re talking over a thousand chicken breasts, almost TWENTY FOUR HUNDRED beef medallions, and enough dessert to feed a small town! I am not talking about the culinary team of the Queen herself, preparing to serve guests of last weeks Royal Wedding. I’m talking about our very own Tulips and Maple, led by the Team of Christine, Louis, Pauline, and so many important others ensuring that the night the RMC Grads had was one to remember. I really just wanted to share with everyone how impressive this group of people were that evening. The sheer size of this event alone would have intimidated some of the most experienced culinary groups and everyone at Tulips handled the evening (it appeared) like it was just another event for a valued client. It makes me really proud to be able to say that I work with a group of people that put so much pride into what they do.”

“Hey Christine, I wanted to thank you so much for all of your efforts with Marty’s 50th party! Everyone had a beautiful time and loved your service and venue!

“Hi Christine, We were really happy with everything. Although I wasn’t in the kitchen at the time of delivery, I’ve been told that the people who delivered the food explained everything and were really helpful and efficient at getting everything prepared. They really went above and beyond what they were required to do. We also really appreciated the extra quantities of some of the canapes. The duck crostini was our favourite! We dealt with multiple vendors to arrange our family event and your company was the only one to not only meet but exceed our expectations. One tiny suggestion though: the quantity of mashed potato we received was way too much for 15 people. If it sounds strange for someone to complain about getting too much food, it’s just because we’re having difficulty eating all of it and we hate to throw away food! But everything was delicious and we’d definitely recommend Tulips and Maple! Thank you! Amanda”

“I hope you’re doing well. I know it’s been a few weeks, but the dust has finally settled on our end and we wanted to take a minute and thank you and your team for all the wonderful work that was done for our wedding. Numerous people complimented the food and mentioned how friendly and attentive the staff was. We personally loved the chow mein and the bacon wrapped shrimp! My cousin told me that someone just fired up the BBQ when she had a hard time with the lighting up the esfand before the ceremony, and many others were thankful for the prompt and friendly service. I was impressed and grateful that you had both TUMS and ginger-ale nearby before the ceremony! We are so grateful for everyone help!”

“Hi Christine, The reception party Friday evening and wedding the following day went off without a hitch. The food from “Tulips and Maple” was wonderful and enjoyed by all.  We had planned on having 30 at the reception party but everyone was not able to attend.  The food left from Friday evening was enjoyed the next day at noon by the male side of the wedding party who were all staying together.  Not a crumb was wasted. Thank you, Knelda Johnson”

“Dear Tulips and Maple, Thank you for the outstanding job you did to make Gabby and Curtis’s wedding so incredible. Luis, Christine and the staff provided superb service and every detail was covered exactly how we wanted it to be. The family style menu presentation was outstanding. So many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was. You helped make a beautiful memory for my daughter, her new husband and all our family and friends. I also wanted to mention and thank the servers that catered the event, they were very friendly and professional. We would be more than happy to recommend Tulips and Maple to anyone who may need a caterer. Thank you, Tony Cimellaro”

“My name is Justin Inglis, I am the regional manager for LensCrafters in GTA East, Northern/Eastern Ontario & Quebec and I hosted a meeting yesterday at the Residence Inn in downtown Kingston. I wanted to provide you feedback on the catering. I have hosted so many meetings and have never had such amazing food. My entire team was so impressed with the quality, seasoning and taste of the food. Also, the representative you had on site was engaging and lovely and I wanted to compliment her demeanor. I cannot wait to host in Kingston again and leverage your catering services!!”

“Christine and Luis, I wanted to write you a note on behalf of myself and my wife Alison Cuffari. Thank you both so much for your efforts in making our wedding so special. I think you provided our guests with a superb meal. At the outset, we wanted to serve our guests food cooked with the care and ability that we enjoy when dining out home in New York City. As soon as we saw your proposed menu, we knew you cared about food. When we got to do our tasting, we knew you could execute delicious, thoughtful meal. Once we sat down to dinner, it became clear that scaling your food up to our group of nearly 90 was no problem. Your servers were prompt and attentive and the food was every bit as delicious as we had hoped it would be. Many of our guests volunteered that it was the best meal they’d ever had a a wedding. Thank you for working with us on the menu and for accommodating Nonna’s cannelloni. It meant a lot to have that personal touch as well. We look forward to the next time we throw a big party in Kingston. You’ll be first on our list of people to call. Please let us know if any online reviews, etc. would be helpful to your business. All the best, Dennis and Alison”
