Client Comments


"I have been using Shawn Smith and his company, Livewire Catering, for 2 years now. He caters my Christmas and Summer Staff Parties for all my companies, as well as my customer appreciation nights. These events range from 30-200 people. The food is excellent and the service is very friendly and professional. I find that he is very creative and has delivered what he has promised every time. He is very friendly and I have had very positive comments at all my events on the food and service. I have used several catering services in the past and in my opinion Shawn is the best."

"Just wanted to say thanks for the super job that you did at our wedding last weekend! The guests are still talking about how wonderful the food was and how much they enjoyed your cheerful attitude as they were wandering back and forth to the buffet table throughout the evening. You really made our night special and we just can't thank you enough!! "

"And Flora, what can we say...without you that hall would have still looked like a prison mess-hall instead of the cheery party atmosphere that it turned out to be!! "

"When our daughter decided ... to get married on our acreage... we wanted to offer our guests a taste of high end French dining in a very rural Canadian setting. We were referred to Shawn Smith and LiveWire Catering, and hired him when we saw the succulent dishes he proposed. "

"Of course, we did not really think through how challenging it was for him to come to cook in a tent beside the wedding tent in a remote pasture, without running water or a sink, but he came with his own equipment and somehow served a sophisticated several course hot French dinner to 130 guests without the slightest glitch! Everyone was delighted and surprised by the quality of the meal and the smoothness of the service, and I can’t recommend him and his team highly enough. They understood what we wanted and they were amazingly adaptable, accommodating and professional throughout. "
