Dietary Restrictions

The Quisine catering team is able to accommodate most dietary restrictions. We are happy to work with you to ensure that your menus and selections accommodate the guests attending.

At Quisine catering we label the top 12 common allergens identified by Health Canada including milk, eggs, soy, sesame, mustard, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, sulphites and gluten.

It is important to note that we are NOT an allergen free environment. Although we take precautions, the possibility of cross-contact with other foods does exist. Safe alternatives including direct consultation with our culinary team to arrange alternative menus, individual customized plates, or outside pre-packaged food items can be made available.

To determine the best method to accommodate individual requirements, it is important to have the specific dietary restrictions listed for each person. Simply list each person and their particular dietary consideration through the order ‘request changes’. Our culinary team will review and reply

Any lost or misplaced items are the responsibility of the client, and will be included on your invoice at the replacement cost. Multiple considerations being accommodated together may limit or influence menu selections that can be provided.

If you have questions or require any assistance with dietary considerations please contact the catering office directly at: catering@queensu.ca or 613-533-6000 ext. 78785 or 78826.”

Planning ahead is the best way to be able to enjoy your service.  Here are a few things to consider:


Contact Catering Services with the preliminary details of your catering requirements as early as possible.  (Certain dates may become sold-out well in advance.)


Confirm your venue and/or table bookings.


Catering Services may require access to your venue 1 hour prior to the commencement of your event for set up and 1 hour following the completion of your event for clean-up.


All catering services are presented with disposable wares.  You can add a touch of elegance to your event through the following presentation upgrades with a minimum of 3 days` notice. 
     China plates and silverware
     Additional floral arrangements

Breakfast/lunch services for 15-30 will require 6`-18` of table space for menu presentation.  For each additional 20 guests, please add an extra 6` of table space up to a maximum of 36` (or six 6` tables.)


Think about the flow of your event.  If catering is to be delivered over the course of a day-long session, please advise of appropriate service times.  For confidentiality purposes, you may wish to set up your tables for food or beverage service in the corridor immediately outside of a meeting room, so your guests can help themselves to refreshments as time permits.


If you wish to serve wine, beer, or spirits at your event, contact Queen`s Event Services at least 14 days prior to your event so that an Application to Hold a Licensed Event may be submitted on your behalf.


Confirm the menu details and special dietary requirements at least 3 days prior to your event.
