I would rate zero stars if that's possible. I've been trying to book this place for a catering job for two weeks. I called them four times, each time a promise for a call back with list of options. No callbacks or emails to date. Was about to call again when I thought if they can't even call back on time after so many failed attempts why should I trust them to deliver food on time if I choose them?? This is worst customer service that I have experienced.

We recently hosted a large family function at our house. Our initial plan was to handle everything on our own as we have in the past – go shopping, prepare food, borrow plates, have family members help out etc etc.
My to-do list starting growing and so did my anxiety – so I called OTM (quite last minute, actually) to see what they could do for us.
Don and his team streamlined everything -and I had a much needed sigh of relief.
It was simple. I picked from a selection of foods & the OTM team had all of it setup and warming by the time my guests and I got back to our house. We walked in, socialized, sat down, ate and just enjoyed the family event instead of rushing around tending to our guests.
Laura was extremely friendly, very approachable, and always kept busy. She handled the entire food layout as well as replenishment – and at the same time made constant rounds to tidy and collect used dishes and other items.

Having OTM bring the plates, silverware, glasses etc was another bonus. I was debating on that option but very happy with my decision once I saw all the dirty items collected as-is and taken back to OTM without me lifting a finger. Cleanup was a breeze for us :-)

Overall we compared the do-it-yourself costs & time required against the OTM model and we definitely came out ahead. Our guests had nothing but positive comments and enjoyed a fantastic variety of foods we wouldn’t have been able to make ourselves.
I highly recommend OTM and this service.
If you’re like me – thinking you can probably do this yourself – you might be right.. but why!?
I hosted - as well as enjoyed a family event as a “guest” - without worry, and it was fantastic.

Thanks & Well done OTM!

We wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work that
went into creating such a beautiful wedding for us. The hall looked amazing, your staff was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious! Your attention to detail and wonderful hospitality was noted and commented on by so many of our guests. Everyone thought that the food was delicious and the poutine station was a HUGE hit.

We can't thank you enough! We will spread the word about you and your fantastic company.

Truthfully I can't comment much on the food since I didn't eat at my own wedding! Had good feedback from guests though. Great appetizers and delicious buns to accompany the roast beef panini station. :o)
The stir fry was a bit on the spicy side, which is not a problem, just a matter of personal taste.
Wish I had tasted the food prior to the event, but truthfully I didn't think to ask for a tasting!

There was enough food (for aprox. 75 guests)

What I cannot say enough good about is the incredible staff.

They were on time, professional, fast, efficient, organized, and genuinely invested in the success of the day. Servers asked if guests (and husband and I) were having a good time, were more than happy to get you anything you needed. The clean up at the end was amazing. We had our event at a private residence and the OTM team helped stack tables and chairs (not rented through them). They made sure everything was organized and ready to go. I was really impressed. They really alleviated so much stress and allowed us to just enjoy our day.

The servers even left a plate of appetizers at our table (as we were out taking photos when they were served). And one of the girls asked us about our cake (as it was a non-traditional cake) and seemed really interested. Small gestures make the difference.

We were absolutely happy with our choice to hire OTM for our wedding.

On The Move is defintley my caterer of choice. Don is always able to work magic no matter the scale or scope of the event. Quality and quantity are never in question even with tight timeframes and budgets. Thanks OTM for helpng make my events a success!

I've been using On The Move since they first began and from small events to large galas, they have never gone above and beyond the call of duty to supply great food, gracious staff and incredible party advice. Don and his team definitely take customer service to a new level which has only helped my events to be better than I could have hoped!

Food was fantastic. Had a great lunch and everything was displayed in a way where you didn't even want to cut into your food. Delicious and food kept me full all night long.

I don't normally write reviews, but I was exceptionally pleased with the food and service offered by On the Move Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party and so, I had to share. Not only were the canapes scrumptious, but the price was quite reasonable. Don, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. It was nice to know that despite all of the work involved with the event, I could rest assured that On the Move had everything in hand!
