Paul and Stephanie of Emerald City Cakes and Chocolates (and their crew!) did an amazing job for our wedding reception in Seattle, WA on 4 October 2014! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer! Our reception was held in a very small venue (with no kitchen) and they went above and beyond to provide hot and delicious food to our guests! They arrived at around 2 PM to get set up and worked almost until 11 PM that evening. We hired them to do everything: food, drinks, the cake, and bartending (no uncorking fee either!). Paul, Stephanie, and crew are the nicest people who genuinely enjoy their jobs and it really shows in the service they provide and their attention to detail. Their prices are also extremely reasonable and they were willing to create a menu that fit with our needs (some-what dairy free) and theme (Oktoberfest-fusion). We currently live in Chicago, so everything had to be arranged via e-mail and both Paul and Stephanie made a great effort to make sure all of our questions were answered in a timely manner. Now, here it is. The food. The food! Our guests are still raving about the food! There was plenty of food provided and it was delicious. Some of the highlights: The bacon-beer-cheese sauce for the potatoes (or for some guests: the sauce for everything), the potatoes themselves, the tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, the pretzel bites, the bratwurst, the squash ravioli - I would probably just list the whole menu if I could remember it all. We also chose the Tuxedo cake and it was phenomenal! As a bride, I didn't have to worry about anything. When it was time for the toasts, they had the champagne flutes ready to go. When it was time to cut the cake, it was ready and waiting for us. There was more food than our guests could even eat (a feat of its own!), and Paul offered to donate the leftovers for us. Paul, Stephanie, and crew provided genuinely outstanding service for our wedding reception and allowed us to simply relax and spend time with our families and friends. I wish we could be more regular customers, but at least now we have a go-to caterer for any more events we may have in the Seattle area! Highly recommended! Such a great find! Thanks again, Paul and Stephanie, for making our wedding day fun and memorable!
This was for my granddaughters Sweet 16 Birthday Party. We had about 30 guests and we rented a hall. I needed someone to help setup the tables prepare the food and make sure food and drinks didn't run out. I had never thrown a large party like this before and didn't really know what to expect. Jessica came in and asked me some questions as to what I wanted and then took over. She was very professional and very quick. The food and drinks were prepared and displayed perfectly in a buffet style. She even assisted with the birthday cake letting the birthday girl cut the 1st piece and served to the other guests. She also cleaned everything and had the left over food packeged up. I am so glad I hired Jessica and so thankful to her for everything she did. The party wouldn't have been as great if it weren't for her and I certainly wouldn't have been able to relax and enjoy the festivities.
Chantel and her team did an outstanding job of catering our event. The food was delicious (cooked to perfection and nice and hot with many choices), the service was great (the ladies were all warm and friendly) and the set-up and clean-up was flawless. I received many compliments from guests regarding the food. They will most certainly be my caterers of choice the next time the need arises and I would highly recommend them!
Everyone at my wedding was so impressed with Pacific Northwest Catering, the food was delicious, presentation was beautiful, and the servers were absolutely wonderful. Matt and Al were great to work with and were very quick to answer any questions I had and make any adjustments all the way up to the week if the wedding. The serving staff was phenomenal and I received a lot of feedback from guests on how great they were. I highly recommend!!
What a wonderful experience with K&F Catering! Delicious food, fantastic presentation and super kind staff. Flexible, attentive and helpful throughout. Will definitely use again!
Nola and her staff did such a fantastic job catering our wedding. From helping us plan to menu, providing a delicious tasting, answering questions about logistics and dietary restrictions, and providing stellar food and customer service to the day of the wedding, Nola and her team went above and beyond to make our day special. Our main entrée was fig balsamic glazed wild BBQ salmon with mango kiwi salsa. I wish I could make something this delicious myself, because it was amazing. Our salad consisted of organic mixed greens with julienned apple, shaved fennel, herbed crouton, and a really light but creamy bleu cheese dressing. They even made a separate salad with a different dressing for our dairy-free guests. The guest (and groom’s) favorite was our side: Beecher’s mac and cheese. So good! It was very stormy the day of our wedding, and a lot of things went wrong for us. Nola and her team went beyond the call of duty and helped out where they shouldn’t have needed to. They kept an incredibly positive attitude the entire time, conversed with guests, and helped reassure an incredibly stressed-out bride. The only complaint I heard from any guests was the portion-control at the buffet, but with a buffet we personally feel that was probably necessary. I had been concerned that people would take more than their fair share and leave guests at the end of the line with no food, and I’m sure that was the whole reason for starting out with smaller portions. I also heard that guests were invited to come back for seconds once everybody had been served, so I’m sure everyone got enough food. Overall, we were more than satisfied with Nola, her team, and the food. The food was everything we had hoped for, and the service was outstanding. We recommend them to anybody planning a wedding or other event.
Working with Dogfather was great! Food was delicious, and caterer was prompt, and so fun to work with! Will definitely use again in the future :)
Everything was great, food was delicious, service great! Really enjoyed working with Tara.
Brett was a wonderful addition to our family routine. She did all menu planning, grocery shopping, preparation and clean up. She was willing to accommodate dietary wishes and our kids' picky palates with food that never bored the adults! The variety was great. I also appreciated that she was price conscious when planning and shopping. She communicates regularly and was always on time. A great addition and we were sad to see her go when distance separated us.
My parents were in need of someone to cook and deliver meals to them, and I am so fortunate to have found Sami. Sami cooks and delivers well-balanced meals to my parents' home every other day. Not only is her food delicious, but she is kind, thoughtful and caring. She is constantly in contact with my mother to ensure that the meals are to her liking. Thank you, Sami, for providing this wonderful service!
The food was delicious and whole experience was a plus. Wish I would have known about them sooner.
We operate Kruger Escapes, an adventure sailing charter business based in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. Two years ago we established a partnership with Nichole of Island Chef Services. In preparation for each of our sailing trips, we provide Nichole with detailed food surveys from each of our guests. Nichole then works her magic, always demonstrating incredible thoughtfulness, planning, preparation and execution. From the food surveys, she prepares detailed menu plans, shops for all the food, then fully preps each meal (for up to seven days!). As a final step she provides us with detailed instructions on how to finish preparing each meal and plate it beautifully. This relationship allows us to quickly prepare and serve freshly cooked meals while underway AND maintain a gourmet food experience for our guests that is specifically catered to their tastes. On every sailing trip with Nichole's food, our guests express delight over the menu and surprise at just how much delicious food is on board the boat. Our guests' comments include statements like, "How did she know my favorite dinner?!", "This is beautiful!" or "This is our most favorite way to eat. We want to meet Nichole!" On a smaller scale, last Christmas we hired Nichole to make an apple pie for our family dinner. My dad is NOT easy to impress with pie, and apple is his favorite. It was a little heartbreaking to have to tell him I wasn't the one who baked the pie he was so happy with... and then he kept saying, "This Nichole really knows how to bake an apple pie." We love you Nichole!!
Royal India catered our high donor fundraiser and Aeisha delivered nothing but class. She wanted the best for our event and worked patiently with us to get the right menu and look for our budget. Guests loved the food and the spread was simply beautiful. I highly recommended Royal India and the dynamic duo of Aeisha and her sister Zehra : )
Hamid's dinner exceeded all expectations. The food was delicious, Hamid was a delightful host taking care of all the details including setting the table, preparing and serving the food and cleaning up. My friends and I got to relax and enjoy an entire evening focused on food, drinks and conversation. Hamid took care of the rest. This was the first time we had hired a personal chef for an evening at home and it was everything we hoped for. Thank you Hamid!
Intelligently spiced and thoughtfuly prepared. Best tasting food, and it feels like home. ❤
Anne-marie was very talented in preparation of the food, taking into consideration dietary restrictions. The presentation was attractive and everything was tasty. Highly recommend.
I've hired Edible Hue for several events, and have enjoyed each of them immensely. Chef Andy, Myrissa, and Amara provide an experience that has had my guests raving for months. They're a joy to collaborate with, and they accommodate my typical Seattle crowd (a mix of vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-sensitive, lactose intolerant) with patience and grace. I am always at ease knowing they're at the helm. At the last event, several people expressed that they were "blown away" by the food. I can't wait to have an excuse to hire them again!
Amazing food, wonderful staff!
I am a foodie so when i saw fliers inviting for a free food tasting at Stella Maris Kitchen i could not miss it! I was amazed at the quality and variety of the food that was available!! Menu consisted of delightful African dishes, tasty Italian pastas, gourmet American burgers, salads, sandwiches etc. What i liked most was the fact that everything on the menu was the healthy version: no sugar or additives. I raved about them in the office and we had them cater for our Christmas party and everyone loved the food. They have since catered two company birthday parties and a recent send-off party for a member of my staff. The latter event was impromptu yet hot, freshly prepared salmon sandwiches, shrimp pasta salad, garden salad, Jollof rice and tasty sauteed greens for 50 people was delivered at short notice I will certainly recommend you try them!!
Cierra Laub, Jarod Johnson, and Ash Candelario catered our wedding in August 2014. We had about 150 people to feed. The variety of dishes they prepared was wonderful. We had vegans, vegetarians, and others with no food specifications and there was something for everyone. My husband, our guests, and I were impressed with the quality of the food and service provided. Everything was refilled in a timely manner so no one was ever waiting to eat what they liked. The price to quality ratio for the food was very affordable. We had a budget and they did an amazing job to work within and even under that. We would have them cater again without hesitation.
