We loved EVERYTHING about the Emerald City Cakes team! Excellent food, they were amazing with the guests and very responsive. They even made a special dish for one of our guests who had severe allergies which was so appreciated. Thank you again Paul & Stephanie!

Chantel catered for our wedding on Christmas Day! During our planning, she responded immediately to all of our questions and concerns. We could not believe the variety of food that was available on her menu for the price per person that we had planned--it seemed too good to be true. However, we can honestly say that the food was simply AMAZING!! Food for 25 people was set up well ahead of our ceremony so that our guests could enjoy her incredibly delicious appetizers. The main course consisted of salads, side dishes, and three main entrees. Our guests were very impressed with the variety and flavors offered by Chantel's cooking; in fact, several people requested her contact info so they could use her catering services. Cleanup was effortless and timely. You will not go wrong in choosing Chantel and Thyme Well Spent Catering as your next caterer!

Attended a family reunion in Renton, Wa a few days ago. A last minute decision was made and we had to hire a catering service to accommodate about 50 ppl with in a day! A close friend of mine recommended K&F Catering which she hired for her wedding. So, I decided to give them a shot and I'm so glad I did! Not only was the food delicious, but they made sure to have everything set up in a super clean and timely manner! Definitely recommend these guys to anyone near Renton!!

On March 28th we hosted a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Bridal Shower for my daughter with 25 attendees. We hired Nola's to handle the catering, provide support staff and assist with cleanup. Nola and her staff's involvement exceeded our expectations and the quality of service from beginning to end was incredible. The menu was perfect and very fitting for the "theme." Numerous guests complimented the gluten free and vegetarian dishes and were impressed with the beautiful layout and display. Nola's staff support (Kari Rae and Tarrahan) made each and every guest feel special, ensured that everyone had plenty of libations and food. They were so flexible that when the shower ran longer they were willing to adjust their schedules to stay the extra 2-hours for "clean-up" - everything was washed, dishes re-boxed and we absolutely had to do nothing but have fun with the bride to be. Guest comments included: "that was the most relaxed, enjoyable shower they had been to", "the food was delicious and beautiful presentation", the experience was over and above what they expected. Many guests wanted Nola's catering contact and were interested in hiring for upcoming events. Everything was timely, perfectly executed and nothing went wrong - we would HIGHLY recommend for any occasion (large or small) without equivocation!! Conny

Dogfather Catering provided a hot meal, made to order, with several choices, to feed a crowd of 125 hungry construction workers in a little over an hour. The gourmet hotdogs were a bit hit! Being a vegetarian, I don't normally enjoy these events, but Stephen, the Dogfather, provides a vegetarian sausage that was really tasty! Stephen arrived a couple of hours early to set up his "kitchen" and confer with me about our plan. His trailer takes up very little space, so it fit easily into the limited space in our trailer compound at our project site. Stephen is very friendly and aims to please. I hope to have him return for another event soon.

Shauna and her employees were perfect. All of the food was delicious, she was also very flexible with the menu choices to help cater to our diverse crowd. Everything was out on time and displayed beautifully. Someone even went around serving apps on a tray, which added a touch a class I wasn't even expecting!

Jim is very professional. He ALWAYS listens, and meets the needs of his clients. His food is fresh, tastes amazing, is always prepared safely, and is displayed so beautifully before serving. Even this platter turned out amazing (see attached photo). It was almost hard to consume the vegetables that occupied this tray, because it was so beautiful!!! Jim TRULY enjoys what he does. He has turned all of what he does in to works of art. I will ALWAYS reccomend that potential clients ask for Jim, and his services. You will never be disappointed!

I have been a guest at several private dinner parties catered by Jen from the Salted Fig. These parties are by invitation only and promise a culinary journey you won't forget- and they deliver! Jen's menus are creative, cohesive, and absolutely delicious. The meals always feel so personal and nurturing, like she knew exactly what I wanted to eat, even though she is cooking for 20 of us. I would highly recommend The Salted Fig for any catering needs, especially if you are looking to serve up quality, excellence, and passion with every bite!

      I've had the pleasure of being both a client of Edible Hue as well as dining at several events they have created dinners at. When I was a guest Edible Hue has catered to my personal dietary restrictions with the same artistic flair and deliciousness as was served on the regular menu. When I employed them they were responsive, cheerful and creative in organizing and executing a tasting menu that was specially paired with specific champagnes. I look forward to my next encounter with all of Edible Hue - Andy, Myrissa and Amara - as either a client or a guest.

      We used 314 Pie for catering our wedding and we were very happy we chose them. They responded very quickly by email and phone whenever we had a question, arrived in plenty of time, and were very professional and polite serving guests. Also, they were able to serve all of our 100+ guests very quickly. The pies were very delicious, we and all of our guests were very happy. Highly recommend!
