Considering a caterer? It is important to hear from people who have used the services before.

Hear what real people are saying about us

At Purple Onion Cuisine we are very proud of the reputation we have developed over the years; thanks to satisfied clientele most of our business simply comes from word of mouth! We invite you to read on to hear first hand what other people (real people!) think of our food and services.

The food was FABULOUS!! Everyone has been raving about it, commenting on it, and telling me how delicious everything was! Thank you so much for everything.
I just wanted to thank you again for all that you did leading up to our big day, your patience, and kindness during the wedding planning “process” was so incredibly appreciated.Elizabeth, Markham, ON
I planned a surprise birthday dinner for 4 for my wife. Charmaine was extremely flexible and understanding with numerous food restrictions and special requests. She was professional and personable. What I really noticed, was that she was absolutely silent when getting the food ready. We did not hear her at all and then the food magically and deliciously appeared. Every single morsel she brought out, and there were many, were delicious and they kept on coming. By the time we finished dinner (there was more than we could eat), she had the kitchen cleaned, dishes done and her items packed away to go. It was smooth, silent, painless and pleasurable. This was my wife’s favourite birthday so far. Thank you Charmaine.Martin, Newmarket, ON
“I just wanted to congratulate you on the superb menu at Courtney’s wedding. Everything, from the hors d’oeuvres to the sit down dinner, was delicious and your wait staff was fantastic. Cheryl told me today about the incredible challenges involved. As far as we lucky guests were concerned, however, everything went off like clockwork. Congratulations on helping to make it a very special day.”Kate, Stouffville, ON
We’d like to thank you for your efforts this weekend. It was apparent that you went to extra trouble for us which was very much appreciated and the food was absolutely excellent!!Cathy, Markham
We wanted to thank you SO MUCH for that fabulous dinner last night. What can we say but WOW! And that brussel sprouts dish? Heavenly!!!Barb W., Stouffville
What could be better than celebrating 31 years of marital bliss? Well, for my husband and me who are both “fab-foodaholics”, it was a catered, candlelit, romantic dinner prepared and served by Purple Onion Cuisine. While many wives yearn for emeralds or rubies, it was the green and red in the Arugula and Frisee with Blood Orange, Candystripe Beets, and Blood Orange Vinaigrette starter that made me salivate. The main was comprised of Tenderloin of Beef Medallions with Green Peppercorn Sauce, Roasted Coloured Carrots and Parsnips, Savoy Cabbage with Double Smoked Bacon, Gratin of Jerusalem Artichokes, and Potato, Parsnip and Leek Mash. The crowning touch was an Amaretto Chocolate Torte which was almost as sweet as the marriage. The beauty of the evening was that neither of us had to be the Designated Driver, and we could both be Designated Lovers! It was an anniversary to remember. Thank you Purple Onion Cuisine!Cheryl and Rob C., Markham
Highfields is a hidden gem and a perfect spot for a country wedding, with a fantastic wedding planner, Deborah Breckels, and caterer, Charmaine Hamill of Purple Onion Cuisine as a packaged wedding deal. Charmaine’s catering was superb! The presentation was beautiful and guests are still raving about the flavour and quality of the food. It was an absolute pleasure and honour to work with such fabulous women and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way our wedding worked out. Thank you for a truly magical day!Sarah, Toronto
I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you once again for your absolutely perfect work on all occasions of our wedding weekend, but especially pulling off such fantastic food from the basement of an empty barn! 🙂 I never considered having anyone else cater our Big Day, and felt perfectly confident knowing you were at the helm.
Andrew and I are sincerely grateful to you for helping to make our wedding even better than we imagined.
Big thanks!Courtney, Toronto
Thank you so much for lunch yesterday… RAVE reviews! Everything tasted wonderful and was beautifully presented. Nice job!
Thanks again, I know you will be hearing from us again!Jill, Uxbridge
Thanks so much for making my birthday such a special and enjoyable party for our family and guests. Your gals were so fun and friendly, we all thought we had known you gals for a long time. The food was outstanding and presentation lovely. Sorry there were so many people in the kitchen, but they all thought if they were not in the kitchen, they wouldn’t have any of your delicious food.Ellie, Stouffville
Thank-you so very much for producing a wonderful evening for my wife and me, and our friends. It was really terrific, and all of our guests have been raving about the food, and you. Thanks so much.Tom, Stouffville
We just wanted to say thank you for doing such a wonderful job catering our New Year’s Eve party for the second year in a row. Making the extra effort coming to Montreal was especially appreciated. Our guests loved the food and service and all the little extras that you provided. The quality of food was amazing and service impeccable. Thank You!!Chantale T., Montreal, Quebec
Thank you for catering the most amazing dinner party last night. Just outstanding…The two of you do amazing things in the kitchen. We were, needless to say, “totally impressed”. You have quite the flair for taking care of people. We most definitely will look forward to have you cater our events for the future. We enjoyed your cooking and presentation tremendously.Marilyn R., Uxbridge
