We loved working with Jordan & team. Our wedding was at Steamwhistle so they gave us a few caterers to choose from. I contacted a different caterer initially who I’d eaten the food of before and enjoyed and asked for a quote. I was planning the wedding 2 years in advance so this caterer didn’t seem to want to give me a quote so early but I needed it for budgeting purposes (weddings are expensive I needed to save!!) so I eventually managed to get a number with a lot of back and forth and rudeness!! I thought it would be worth getting a second quote just to check this first caterer wasn’t over charging so I contacted M&O. Jordan was so lovely and seemed really keen to give us anything we needed and also provided an example schedule of the day which made me feel like they knew what they were doing and would make the day very easy as M&O would organise everything so it was a no brainer to go with them. Jordan was very responsive throughout the whole process and when we tasted the food we asked for a couple of changes and these were incorporated into our menu. We had a fair few allergies/special food requests and these were all met perfectly! The day itself went extremely well with Jordan working with the MC to ensure everything happened at the right time and everyone loved the food. The catering staff were also very polite and lovely to have around on our special day. I would recommend M&O to anyone planning a wedding at Steamwhistle or elsewhere!

My husband and I were researching caterers for our late April wedding and in the end had agreed on three good candidates; one of which was M&O. Right from the get-go the correspondence from Jordan was prompt and concise. When the day came for the initial tasting my husband and I were both excited because who wouldn't want to taste a variation of delicious food?! We finally got to meet Jordan in-person and we immediately we knew we were in good hands. The conversation flowed naturally and the food was fantastic (even my fussy eater husband enjoyed it all). As soon as we walked out the door we both agreed that they would be our wedding caterer. In the months that followed we had decided to change a few of our passed canapes choices and asked if we could come in for a second tasting to ensure our new selections would reflect our tastes. Jordan was more than accommodating and we dropped in to taste more delicious bites. Its so easy to talk about how good the food was but major accolades should be given to Jordan. He was always calm and knowledgeable on everything from venue set-up to the day-of schedules. The wedding day was a complete success! Our guests were beside themselves over the food and staff. We had multiple people approaching us all night complementing not only the quality of the food but also how quickly it was served from the kitchen (everyone loves hot food!). The staff expertly managed all the allergies and special requests. Its safe to say that not only would we use them again for events in the future but we would recommend them to anyone as well.

M+O is not one of the affiliated caterers recommended by our venue, but I use M+O a lot at work and knew their food was good, so we asked. We were allowed to use them for a slight increase in the heritage fee. We also needed to use the staffing company that the venue uses, but M+O coordinated the whole thing and we didn't have to worry about any of it.
Choosing a meal from the menu was SO HARD because there was so much to choose from. In the end we went for a selection of appetizers for the cocktail hour, a roasted eggplant soup for starters, tarragon mustard chicken for the main, with asparagus and scalloped potatoes as sides, and creme brle for dessert. We also had mini cupcakes served during the dance. Everyone raved about the food - not one downvote from our guests, nearly everyone cleared their plates.
They were also really helpful and accommodating about food sensitivities and allergies. One of our guests has a long list of allergies, and all they had to do was switch out the soup for a slightly different version. Our guest was so happy, she said it was the first time in years she'd been able to eat a whole meal at a wedding.
Our liaison, Carol, really was like a wedding coordinator, with great suggestions about the timeline for the reception, a balance of appetizers, and the best way to run our open bar.
Carol also coordinated the staff and the bar. All we needed to do is show up.

This was the worst experience my Fiancee and I have ever gone through. M & O did not win our business. Jordan was unprepared for all meetings and calls. I had my future in-laws come down from Niagara to discuss and set expectations. We had clearly stated weeks in advance that we needed pictures and details of previous weddings to gauge the quality of the work. He didn't have anything ready, their office was a mess and to top it all off.... never sent an email after our meeting. We continued to reach out and never received a response. We ended up calling, spoke to him, and he said he was busy. Get this - still proceeded to never email us anything... and to this day we have never heard back from him. The lack of professionalism was beyond me, save yourself the headache and GO WITH ANYONE ELSE... Literally anyone else.
