Client Testimonials

What sets us apart as caterers and event planners is that we treat your guests like they were in our home - with genuine hospitality and warmth. We are an extension of you and your company. It's our job to anticipate your needs and handle the details with grace, professionalism, and a sense of fun. Although throughout our careers we have served presidents, prime ministers, rock stars, royalty and oodles of Hollywood movie stars, we have been most privileged to work with some of the same wonderful Vancouver clients for many years.

I have been using Dino Renaerts and The Bon Vivant Group for catering for almost a decade. Dino and his crew are always reliable and professional; with them at the helm, I can relax and enjoy the event as much as my guests! Dino is versatile and has successfully catered small intimate dinners at our home, corporate events for us at Skinworks, as well as an annual all-day event on an island accessible only by boat - which proves he is a really good sport as well! Most importantly, Dino creates delicious menus suited for the occasion and his knowledge of wines comes in handy when entertaining oenophiles. I highly recommend The Bon Vivant Group!

Nessa and Dino - On behalf of the team at H+K, I wanted to say thank you for once again making our event so special - the food, wine and service were all perfect! You really are both a part of the H+K family - we cannot imagine one of our events without you! A huge thanks!

Joy Jennissen, General Manager and Senior Vice President in Vancouver at Hill + Knowlton Strategies


Thanks Nessa for an amazing client event. Great to meet you and Dino in person as well - you're a fantastic team! Thanks for the help in cost containment. Every little bit helps!

Thanks so much for a superb meal and service! You made it easy for me to enjoy myself (I usually am running around). I hope you had some fun too! I will surely recommend your company to anyone who asks!

Dino & Nessa - Thanks so much for joining us tonight to feature a class at Cookworks! It was just great and those who attended very much enjoyed your tips, techniques, recipe demonstrations, wine pairing suggestions and of course, the delicious food and wine! It was an intimate evening with lots of opportunity to ask questions and converse with you both. We especially appreciate you participating this time of year when you have just completed a very busy Dine Out period and are preparing for Valentines Day.
