With our menu and our skilled chefs, you can choose from popular fine dining or hot buffet packages, pamper your guests with our Elite Collection, or come up with something truly unique and customized to your needs by arranging a one-on-one consultation with a member of our knowledgeable and professional staff. You can also customize our packages to suit your specific needs or desires.

Cocktails, Appetizer Trays, and Midnight Snacks

Either on their own or paired with a full-service meal you will impress your guests with our colourful and flavourful cocktails and appetizer trays.

We offer cold buffets, hot lunches, barbeques, Tex-Mex buffets, and special holiday themed menus; all perfect for hosting house parties and other special events. For your next gathering offer your guests something special without having to labour for hours in the kitchen.

The Bytown Elite Experience

Our Bytown Elite Collection menu is for those who want the full five-star treatment. Consisting of our Bytown Elite Collection Cocktails Reception and Sit-Down Dinner options, these packages include all the fine touches: special cocktails and amuse-bouche, seven-course dinners featuring unique, fresh, and local ingredients, upgraded dishes and utensils, San Pellegrino Water service, along with other fine touches all to make your event a memorable one.

Food Allergies and Special Needs

In response to a growing number of requests related to food allergies or cultural requirements we have developed new premium offerings for satisfying these special requests. In particular we have developed a selection of Gluten-Free and Vegan Items and noted these throughout our menu. We are also able to customize our menu or create a special meal to address other dietary needs.

Bar Service

Our Smart Serve certified bartenders would be pleased to provide a range of alcoholic beverages to your guests. In Ontario, our liquor licenses allow us to easily set-up a bar on premises by simply providing notice to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. In Quebec, or if providing your own alcohol, we can advise you on obtaining the necessary permits.

Add a Special Touch!

To personalize your experience we offer upgraded dishes, glassware, linens, and wedding/party accessories that will give your event that extra pizazz. Also available to help with your event are party tents, tables, chairs and furniture. Please contact for more information.
