Our experience with Bon Vivant has been excellent. The menu that Garrett planned for our event was well thought out and the food was both delicious and of the highest quality. Our wishes and vision were also taken into account. The whole team has been extremely professional

Garrett and his team were wonderful to work with! The menu was amazing, a very "craft" menu, which tasted as good as it sounded! Garrett was very knowledgeable about local beers and provided a great assortment for the bar. They executed the event flawlessly and professionally. Everyone was very impressed, and they left the kitchen spotless. I highly recommend Bon Vivant Culinary!
