Testimonials: Happy Customers

As usual…lunch was a great success.


We had a new staff member attend the meeting…he was skeptical about all the “hype” he had heard about how good lunch would be. He is now a believer!!


Thanks again, Craig

We received rave reviews from all our guests.  The appetizers, the beef, the salmon, the veggies, the salads and the desserts were all outstanding.  We appreciated your professionalism, the quality of the service, your flexibility and the delicious food.  We will highly recommend you to anyone we know who requires a caterer.


Thanks again for everything.

Heavenscent Catering provided a buffet style dinner for our 80+ wedding guests and we could not have been more pleased. They were friendly, prompt and organized, but more importantly the food was incredible. Everyone was commenting on how delicious each option was and I heard more than once "it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding". There were lots of cleared plates and many guests went back for additional helpings, myself included. Cooking for dozens of people is a large task especially since our venue didn't have a proper kitchen, however, neither quality or taste was sacrificed. I cannot say enough good things about this dinner!

Excellent, thank you so much!  And again, an absolutely delicious lunch.  All of the staff loved it and those with allergies really appreciated what you did to accommodate them.

Thank you!

Dear Rick & Sandie,

We are so pleased with everything you provided for our wedding.  We had several people tell us it was the best catered wedding they had ever attended.  We were certainly glad we had leftovers for the next day too!

We really appreciated your patience, availability, and guidence leading up to our big day.  Your were an integral part of it (and your whole team, too!). 

Thanks so much.

Amazing caterers!

Rick and Sandie were amazing! They catered for 160 guests at our wedding and did an incredible job! So many compliments! Our venue was unique, in a tent on the beach without many amenities for them to use, but somehow they made everything work and we were able to have exactly what we requested hot and fresh! Rick and Sandie even met with us at the venue months earlier (2 hours away from Nanaimo) to scope out the venue with us which was also amazing. They are fantastic people, super responsive, and did an exceptional job. Thank you!!! %100 would recommend.

“Rick and Sandie put on an amazing dinner for our 60th Birthday party.  Everybody raved about the dinner and desserts.  Everything was cooked to perfection and presented like an art show.  The servers were professional and friendly.  Our guests had an amazing experience and we have to say that Rick and Sandie run a first-class catering company!  Book them well in advance of your event because they are in demand.  We love these guys, and can’t wait to hire them again!"

The last of our large family have gone home now, and I have time to say a huge thank you for a fabulous dinner at our party.  Everyone raved about the food, and so they should have.  You provided a delicious assortment of food and the desserts were so tasty and beautiful, too.
Again, many thanks for your wonderful contribution to our event.

We will certainly tell many people about your business, and will be calling again whenever we have another party.

Dear Rick and Sandie and crew,
We owe you a cazillion thanks for doing such a beautiful job of catering our wedding. After I'd looked after every other detail down to the tiniest decision, it was so lovely to be able to walk into the reception after picture taking, and to see how beautifully you had taken over, and smell the wonderful aromas! I was able to relax the rest of the evening. All our food choices were amazing..... 
Your lovely ladies were amazing as they quietly and discretely went through the reception room looking after everyone! It was like having magical faeries!
Thanks for the wonderful cleanup job as well!
We have been singing your praises, and will highly recommend you to anyone we talk to!

Thanks again!

Hello my favorite catering company. 

.. . . While I am writing I should give you some feedback. Your lunches at meetings we put on, and  that we have passed on to other departments ‎who use you quite often I think, is a big hit. Often times I hear comments "maybe we should meet in Nanaimo, and use that Catering company"  The service is always stellar, professional and top quality. We appreciate it. Often times there is no direct contact so wanted to pass this on. Your soups and sandwiches are fantastic! Thank you 
Thanks again

Hi Rick & Sandie,

Thank you for putting on the most amazing dinner for our party!  Everyone loved it, the leftovers are being devoured as we speak.

Hi Sandie & Rick,

To say that we enjoyed yet another one of your fabulous dinners is an understatement!

As always the dishes you prepare are absolutely amazing, so delicious & ever so nicely presented and the desserts – oh my, such a treat, a lovely way to end our meal.

We also enjoy the midnight buffet, a great assortment of goodies, (we like the cheese☺) which is once again, presented so very attractively.

Your Servers and Bartenders are as always -  most efficient, professional and so very friendly!

Every year we are asked if Heaven Scent will be catering again to our  annual Christmas Party – our response – “but of course” – who else!

As I retire at the end of this year – I, personally wish to Thank You,  Sandie & Rick & your Staff for these past years of “Amazing” dining and service…

I will always, without hesitation,  recommend Heaven Scent!

Wishing you an amazing 2017!


All the Best…Sharon 

Rick & Sandie,

We are so happy that we went with your company for catering our wedding.  We are still getting compliments on the food. The food was amazing but a big part of what makes you guys so special is how you treat your staff and guests. We noticed how well you all worked together as a team and were able to take on any obstacle. You all looked so wonderful, too!

Thank you to you and your staff.

Cystic Fibrosis Fun Night 

I wanted to write to thank you once again for the wonderful catering services you provided for my Mother's 100th birthday party.  The food was fabulous, everyone raved about the varied selection, flavour and quality. The baron of beef was particularly superb and the carving station a very nice touch.  Your consideration of my family's food allergies was greatly appreciated.  The staff were excellent, from the bar tender to the serving staff, they were all nicely dressed and conducted themselves very professionally; unobtrusive yet efficient, looking after all our needs - even broken glassware!  We were all extremely pleased with your services and the food. The entire experience of working with you was a pleasure.  I would not hesitate to recommend you or hire you again.

All the best,
Debbie Comis

Hi Rick and Sandie,

It's been four weeks since Prom and I'm still having people stop me and give their compliments towards everything - the decorations, the food, everything! The night was a huge success for the students and their parents.


I wanted to thank the two of you and your staff for everything you contributed to the evening. Right from the planning stages you were great to work with. It was easy to talk with you; you were open to questions and changes; and I got the feeling that you were there to do what was needed to make the night a sucess...


The students raved about the food - and parents contacted me to say their kids were talking about it at home the following days. Hats off to you and your staff!


Please pass on my thank you and the compliments to your staff: they busted their butts ‘running' up and down those hallways to make sure everything was being done and everyone was being served. Rick and Sandie, being in the general area a lot of the night gave me the opportunity to hear some interaction between you and your staff - it was nice to hear the respect you have for their hard work.


It was really enjoyable and so easy to work with you two. Feel free to give out my name and phone number for future references if you like.
