Jerry and his team were brought on board pretty much at the last minute and performed beautifully. The food was delicious; the layout was beautiful, and his staff was right there keeping the trays full and the tables neat. The bartender was proficient in pouring drinks. The bar service was another area where it was a last minute decision on our part. That Food Guy was amazing in fulfilling what we needed. They arrived promptly and immediately started set up for our event. And, they stayed until the venue manager signed off on the kitchen and event spaces. We would definitely look to That Food Guy for other event catering. He and his staff were helpful, professional, and especially interacted well with our attendees. I've been in fundraising and event planning for many years and can say Jerry Crane and his staff are up there with some of the better caterers I've used.

I have to say Sandra's Goodies made a phenomenal spread for our company's Christmas luncheon. Her ribs and brisket were smoked to perfection and the roasted/smoked veggies were out of this world. Sandra delivered more than she promised and that was outstanding. Most caterers we've used in the past fell short on providing enough food, but not Sandra's Goodies. We had enough leftovers to share for lunch the next day. Thanks Sandra's Goodies we will be using you again and I have already had several people asking me about your services.
I recently hosted a small dinner party in Portland. I was a little worried about finding a wonderful local chef as I live in Seattle, so I was thrilled when a friend recommended Alison. We were not disappointed! She could not have been kinder or more professional, and the food was amazing! We also had some major guest list fluctuations the week of the event, but Alison handled it all so graciously and without batting an eye. All in all, we had a fabulous experience with A Wonderland of Food, and we can't recommend Alison highly enough!
Fushion catering was great to work with - the food was to die for, more than expected for the price and Maribel even provided décor that made our other wise boring conference room look beautiful. Would highly recommend them to anyone in the Portland area.
Danielle did a great job , she has a great personality, very accommodating to our requests; she was punctual, the food on the table look very nice, the quality of the food was very good as well. We heard very good comments from the people attending the meeting. We would recommend Bear Country Catering for you catering needs! You won't regret it.
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.
Shoshana catered two lunches for our national network meeting of 30 people. She was prompt and professional. The food was delicious and nicely displayed. Her Mediterranean meal was a favorite amongst our guests and received many rave reviews.
Alison is a true professional! From the first Thumbtack contact to the event, she was extremely easy to work with. Sadly, I was unable to attend the actual event. But I received numerous texts, during the event & after, complimenting Alison & the wonderfully delicious spread that she put out. According to everyone in attendance, the food was FANTASTIC and there was so much of it! You know that things went well when you get asked for contact information for the caterer. Cheers to Alison & Baker's Dozen Catering & Cakes for a job well done!
Incredible experience with Third Wheel Catering! Skyler has a true passion for cooking, food, and the community that is created around it..and it shows (and tastes delicious). He is remarkable in his attention to detail and ability to play with the flavors of each season. Would highly recommend to others.
Chef Jorge at Mon Chef recently catered an event our foundation hosted at the Portland Art Museum's Whitsell Auditorium. We had approximately 40-50 guests in attendance and the food was served in an elegant buffet setting with a beautiful floral centerpiece. The appetizer offerings were unique, locally inspired, and incredibly delicious. Our guests raved about the hors d'oeuvres. Jorge is a fastidious planner and kept us informed with detailed information about the menu, costs, and site logistics as the event neared. His professionalism and thoroughness allowed me to focus completely on other elements of the event and I did not have to worry about the food service. I highly recommend Mon Chef and Chef Jorge for your catering needs. Dan Blue, Secretary - The James Blue Alliance
