Weddings & Events

Do you offer tastings?

Yes! Tastings are hosted on site at the Boy With A Knife restaurant located at 7-3111 Viking Way, Richmond B.C. They typically last around one hour and can be booked between 1:30 p.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. We charge the cost of the menu per person, typically prepaid by credit card. Should you choose to move forward with BWAK for your special day, the cost of the tasting will be reimbursed on your final bill – and we promise you won’t say no once you taste our food!

Can you give a quote or estimate?
Included in our estimates are approximate staffing hours based on party details. We include billing door-to-door. This will cover event pack-up, our on-site staff arrival time which is typically 1-2 hours before your guests arrive depending on the set-up requirements. We also factor in one hour for clean up at the end of service. All staffing estimates will be adjusted on the final invoice, post event.

Any situation that may arise where staff would be required to stay longer than the estimated number of hours, the event manager will bring this to the onsite contacts attention so the final decision can be made by you.

We always aim to supply the appropriate number of staff for the style and duration of services to make sure your event runs flawlessly. If you have any special requirements for staffing, please don’t hesitate to let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

Bar service can be tricky and we’d love to help with anything from an open bar to a cash bar. If you decide to take care of it yourselves, we request you send an overview of what you have included so we can review it to ensure that everything has been accounted for and quantities are on point.
What happens if there are last minute changes?
