With all the rentals that seems like a really cheap quote for what it includes.  Renting the place settings alone is probably ~$10-15/pp.  Staffing is ~$20+/hour at a minimum and they recommend about 1 staff member for every 20 people; if there’s a 5 hour reception, that’s another $5/pp ($20*5=100/20 people).  So anticipate 1/3-1/2 of catering cost to not even be food related.  Plus my understanding of the Argonaut club is that most caterers don’t use their facilities and therefore may have to rent portable ovens, etc.  Especially when you tack on the ridiculously high taxes in ON!
