I could not be happier with the fine gentlemen at Boy with a Knife. Their food is mouthwatering good with an emphasis on fresh locally sourced ingredients. Working with them is a great experience. They are welcoming to ideas and will work with you on creating just the right experience for your guests. I have used them for small groups and large groups and everything in between. Food is reliable and well received every time. Go ahead give them a try you won’t be disappointed.

It is safe to say that Ryan and his team at Boy with a Knife completely exceeded our expectations for our wedding day. We were blown away by the quality and creativity of the food! All of our guests are still raving over a month later about how they have never had such fantastic food at a wedding, and beyond that, that it was one of the best dinners they’ve ever had. This is especially important to me as a vegetarian with carnivorous guests. I wanted to show them that vegetarian food can be beautiful and filling, and that’s exactly what BWAK did. Every course came out perfectly timed, hot, and beautifully presented. Our guests also mentioned how pleased they were about how plentiful and delicious the food was during cocktail hour. The staff was so attentive that we didn’t have a single guest looking around for food, as there was always someone nearby serving their incredible canapés. BWAK played a huge part in making our wedding day a beautiful success. We will most definitely hire them for events in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone planning an event.

Wedding, Summer 2017
Boy with A Knife, was much more than just a ‘caterer’ for little Leo’s first party. Their team was lovely, professional, warm. They were full of sincere smiles, and were attentive and ‘on it’ without being stuffy. I had requested a vegetarian / vegan meal, and they went over and above to create a beautiful, DELICIOUS spread. I couldn’t stop photographing the bar, the appies, the vegan taco buffet… it was SO beautiful! I chuckled every time one of our guests asked me “ok so THIS is vegan too??!” I proudly nodded.. yes, yes it is. Thank you thank you BWAK for bringing such love to Leo’s party. Now I just need to get engaged so you can do our wedding (wink wink) xo

From the planning stage to the reception itself, Boy With A Knife went above and beyond for us. Given that our reception was in Vancouver and our organization is in Ottawa, they took it upon themselves to do a site visit for us to ensure that the space of the reception would fit our needs and that they had the adequate equipment on-hand during the event. The staff was very friendly, professional and well organized during the set-up of the event, which is key to hosting a seamless event. The presentation was absolutely beautiful, and the food was delicious. I have worked with many different catering companies in the past and BWAK surpassed all expectations. I would highly recommend Boy With A Knife to everyone.
