Can't beat their prices and they were very flexible and accommodating, even helping with various reception things. They had no hidden fees and were very nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend, even for a nice wedding like we had. We had the appetizer buffet and the food was good. They were nice to include cake cutting at no extra cost.

Sandra catered our wedding, and everyone loved the food. She had brought a curried appetizer that I didn't ask about, and it was a HUGE HIT, Everyone really enjoyed it. Out of all the caterers and restaurants we checked, Sandra really worked with our budget, and there was plenty of food, and everything was really tasty. Listen to all these reviews on here, with Sandra you can't go wrong!

Alison and her server and bar tender ensured a stress free evening with delicious appetizers. Reliable, low fuss and they cleaned up beatufiully. Allison and her helpers arrived an hour and half before a cocktail party and were super easy to have around and very helpful. I would definitely use them again.

Maribel and our team provided excellent food, drink and service for our event. From the start, Fusion Catering was so easy to work with: returning emails quickly, confirming and clarifying our ideas, and checking in along the way. The food was fresh and delicious, our guests were raving about it all night. And they set up and cleaned up perfectly. Maribel’s contact with a bartender was a big plus, too. We could relax and enjoy the party as one of the guests. We look forward to using Fusion Catering again.

We had a very simple wedding ceremony at home, followed by an intimate catered dinner with a grand total of 11 people including me and the groom. It was greatly appreciated that staff were willing to drive all the way from Tigard to our house in Kalama, Washington. Miranda was well organized and friendly. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, thoroughly answering any questions we had for her. We did a food tasting prior to booking and enjoyed the food we were able to sample, although after the fact we wished we would have had the opportunity to try the coriander salmon with peach/avocado salsa since it was "award-winning". We ended up ordering it as one of our three entrees and were a bit nervous that it may end up being a little over the top for us since we usually prepare salmon very simply at home. However, we found it to be delicious. The guests were very complimentary about the dinner. I especially liked the penne pasta with mushrooms and truffle cream sauce. We were sent two caterers for our event, one to serve food and one to bartend. We provided our own alcohol for the bartender to serve, so we had ingredients and garnishes for most basic cocktails. We also provided homemade mint-infused simple syrup to add to mojitos. When the catering staff showed up on the wedding day, the staff member designated as our bartender confided that she was very nervous since she had not bartended in about 30 years. She did not know how to make basic cocktails, which surprised us a little, but she was very friendly and accommodating, and used a flip book of recipes for guidance. The groom pointed out the mint simple syrup in the fridge while the bartender was setting up for the event and explained to her that it was for the mojitos. When I took a sip of the first mojito I ordered that evening, it was extremely strong since it had no simple syrup and just a splash of club soda. The bartender was more than happy to add the simple syrup and a bit more club soda at my request, which made it taste great. I was a bit worried about how my guests' drinks might be tasting, but didn't hear any complaints. The bartender was hard working and personable with the guests. We provided our own coffee to be served at the event. However, the grounds we had were either too course for the catering company's percolator or the measurement was off, because the coffee poured out looking more like dilute tea. We ended up making coffee for our guests with our French press. The catering van pulled into the garage and remained parked there in order to load the food and supplies into our house. The garage is the first thing one sees when he or she is driving up our long, winding gravel driveway. The groom asked staff if they could please shut the garage door once they were inside so that guests would be prompted to use the walkway around the side of the house and enter from the entrance rather than through the garage and laundry room. The garage door was never shut, so all of the guests came in this way. It wasn't a huge deal, but it wasn't as visually appealing. Overall, we were happy with the way our wedding dinner turned out and found the staff at Divine Catering to be very friendly. I may have decided not to purchase a bartending package had I known that we would be provided with an inexperienced bartender, but the evening still turned out well regardless.

Alison made everything so easy! She was very accommodating to our budget, and put together a delicious dinner for our office party. We went with the BBQ dinner, and I'm still dreaming about that grilled garlic chicken! Alison even made a special gluten free cupcake for our one gluten free employee. It's obvious that she loves what she does and really cares about creating a good experience for her customers. We will definitely be ordering from her again.

Some of the best food I’ve had in a very long time. All the guests at our wedding raved about the food! Orlando and Kelly go above and beyond to make your day very special and just the way you want it. I probably changed my mind about 10 times before the wedding and they accommodated my needs with a big smile on their face. The meat was amazing and the side dishes were delicious. I HIGHLY recommend them for any event!
