Hi, I’m also getting married at the Museum of Nature, but my wedding isn’t until next year. I’ve met with 3/5 catering companies on the allowed list.  I just googled reviews on gourmet cuisine and this thread was one of the first hits.

Anyhow, I had no luck in finding any reviews.  I like that gourmet cuisine is in house as I went to a friend’s wedding at the museum and the food was luke warm when it arrived on our table…

Anyhow, I’m really curious as to which company you ended up going with! It would really help me with my planning process.  Thanks so much!

Hi, I am also thinking of having my wedding at the Museum of Nature and looking for reviews on Gourmet Cuisine. Their menu sounds delicious.  Keep me updated if you find any reviews.

rwa078:  Hi, wondering if anyone in this thread went with Gourmet Cuisine? Met with them and they seem great, but I would like to find a review.

rwa078:  Hello! Has you rbig day passed by yet? Congratulations either way 🙂 I am getting married at the Musuem of Nature next July and I’m currently meeting with caterers. Who did you end up going with? And were they good? I have met with both Thyme & Again and Tulips & Maple. I have been to several events of theirs and always love the food…I’m having trouble swallowing the cost of them though! I want my food to be great, but I don’t want to go broke getting it.

If you could help me out in any way possible that would be great! 

Thanks a bunch,

Megan

Mbee92:  I’ve been to weddings with both T+M and T+A – Tulips and Maple is a MILLION times better…. I find Thyme + Again mad over-rated and the food pretty sub par… IMO.

FabBride2016:  Thanks for the reply! So far it is looking like Tulips & maple will be the winner. Thyme and Again want 50% deposit and the quote was crazy high. I’m finding that Tulips & maple is more accomodating and flexible to work with. But Thyme & Again’s cafe in Westboro is great! 🙂

We are getting married at the museum next summer too! What day is your wedding? We are also looking into the catering options. We have not met with Tulips and Maple, did you like them?

mcbd:  Our wedding is July 11! When is your date? I found Gourmet Cuisine didn’t have the best looking dishes from what I saw on the photos, but they were a few thousand less than Tulips & maple & Thyme & Again. I have only spoken with Jill from Tulips & Maple over the phone, but she has been SO great to work with! She answers any qustions we have pretty quickly and has made a few adjustments for us whenever we’ve asked. They also have a much lower deposit required than Thyme & Again. What have you thought of the caterers so far?

Mbee92:  That’s our wedding date too! I guess you will be in our adjacent room 🙂 We met with Thyme & Again, Bytown and gourmet. We found bytown and gourmet to have the least appealing dishes. Thyme & again were definitely the most pricey – we asked for a quote from Tulips & Maple, we’ll see how they compare to the others…are you decided to go with T&M? Did you finalize other vendors?

mcbd:  We haven’t finalized with anyone yet. What room are you in? Maybe we will cross paths at some point! We are in the 3rd Floor Gallery space for both our ceremony and reception. Have you finalized with anyone else? I’m hoping to make a decision for next month on the caterers. My top choice right now is T&M but we’ll see what happens!

Mbee92:  We’ll be in the salon on the 3rd floor too. We haven’t finalized anything else…likewise, we hope to finalize the catering in the coming weeks to have one more thing checked off.

Thyme and again and Tulips and Maple are overrated…They have the lions share of the Market with Ottawa so its not so “important” to get your business.  Gourmet Cuisine did a tasting for me and it was designed for “me” and was amazing…the Groomsmen and Chef are so passionate about what they do!  I felt like they were listening to me…They have a Facebook page you can check out…I hear they are looking for a street front location 2015???
