Lisa was completely amazing to work with for our wedding. We had our wedding on a little island, and she never balked at the logistical challenges that poses! She not only made amazing food that everyone enjoyed - she helped me figure out the timeline of our wedding and she checked in with me in the weeks before to see how I was doing. Most amazingly, the day before our wedding we realized we had forgotten to rent cloth napkins. On the day of our wedding, as she was organizing staff and loading food into boats to get to us, Lisa went to our rental company and picked up the napkins! I wish I could give her ten stars. She made our day :) More...

I can spend more money (and time) at the grocery store and still not have anything for dinner. Lisa’s food is so yummy, convenient and cost-effective. This is perfect for our busy family. More...
quick easy meals. always great tasting but I'd highly recommend a cake!
Lisa was a joy to work with for our wedding - she is down-to-earth, friendly, helpful, and thought of all the little details that made our reception run smoothly! Her team of servers was excellent and the food was absolutely amazing. Spectacular appetizers, the two main courses were fabulous, and she also made us a delicious wedding cake. Our guests could not stop talking about how good the food was. I would highly recommend Lisa for any catered event, large or small - you will not be disappointed! More...
I get excited for my healthy salads every week! You can count on healthy, fresh and delicious dishes every time.
All the goodness. Easy meals and yummy healthy choices. But also, CAKE!!!
Lisa catered my wedding this past weekend, and was so amazing! Not only was the food excellent and enjoyed by everyone, but when there was an issue with one of the ovens at my venue she didn’t hesitate to shuttle the food to one of my nearby relatives houses to use their ovens. Despite the inconvenience Lisa and her team were calm, professional, and fun! I would absolutely recommend Food Genie Nanaimo � More...

Lisa prepared a wonderful meal for our staff Christmas party this weekend. She created a festive menu and delivered everything on time and it was hot and fresh. Thank you Lisa!!
Lisa is a consummate professional. The food and service are exceptional- I highly recommend the Food Genie to cater any gathering.
My wife and I tried several weekly items. She is GF/DF and I love that I can have a cooking break w/o the restaurant stress of the wife's diet needs. I picked it up. It was smartly packaged and frozen. Delicious Curry meals. All my yum stars! My friends advanced aged Mom gets her weekly meals this way too...i can totally see why. More...
We had Lisa and her staff cater our wedding day this past weekend, which was remote and not an easy venue with the logistics of “by boat, then by golf cart” and all in the rain! She and her girls were truly the best addition to our beautiful day!!! Right from the planning stage months ago with what to serve our guests, Lisa was amazing and creative! She and her team showed up early, and were the perfect mix of fun, professional, motivated, clean and organized, totally engaging with the guests and making sure all were happy And when we got back to our venue that night, the place was spotless and you wouldn’t have even known they prepped and cooked and pulled off such an awesome spread with some of the yummiest appetizers ever! Thanks Lisa and team! We would HIGHLY recommend, and Trevor and I can’t wait to find another reason to host another party to work with you again! 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ xo More...

Great food. I will definitely order again.
There really aren't enough words to tell how amazing Lisa was for my recent wedding. She was a delightful ray of sunshine and went above and beyond in almost every way possible! She worked with another caterer for our wedding as well and acted as a go between for us. Her staff was great and more importantly she was VERY well organized and her food was delicious! People like this help to make stressful and busy events way easier and more memorable! I am pretty sure every person at our wedding said something good about the food she provided! Bravo! More...
