Paul and Stephanie are a lovely team that have been our go-to team in the Seattle area for amazing food and a lovely dining experience. We first met and hired them in 2012 for our wedding for 100 guests, and have since then used them on several occasions for private dining catering for my husband and myself. They are a very professional team that create some of the most unique and delicious dishes I've ever had. We worked closely with them to create a special gastro-pub style menu for our wedding, but have since given them free reign to develop their own menus as a surprise for us and we've never, ever been anything short of amazed at the quality and uniqueness of the meals they've prepared. What's even more amazing to me is that getting to work with such a friendly team that can produce such high quality meals can still be really affordable. For what they bring to the table (no pun intended ;) ), you'd be hard pressed to find a better team to work with.

Our company christmas party was held on a private yacht cruising Puget Sound and Chantel prepared a wonderful meal for our party of 24. Everyone was happy with the food and personal service she provided. Her homemade cheesecake was fab.

Nola catered our family-style wedding banquet with such flare and grace, we and our guests were in complete awe all through the meal. The food itself was phenomenally delicious; every bite was worth savoring. From her friendly, direct demeanor, to the cheerful staff, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. She pulled off the event with a comfortable elegance and practiced hand that fit our personal style just perfectly. Among many other notably considerate things, she even worked around the summer heat, keeping our individually-sized cakes out of the sun, and made sure iced beverages were available in ample quantities. Our guests still rave about her, and we can't help but agree. Even "behind the scenes," her prices were reasonable, and her estimates thorough. She was also very accommodating of our guests' serious food allergies when creating the menu. We are so appreciative of everything she did for us both before and after the event, and we look very much forward to having her at our next soiree!

I recently had Bobby prepare a small dinner party for my husband's birthday. From the moment I contacted him, he was prompt with his replies and took the time to answer my questions. His ideas for the menu were great and he was receptive to any changes or additions that I requested. On the day of our meal, Bobby was awesome. He prepared a wonderful meal while carrying on an interesting conversation with all of us. We learned some useful tips from him. The food was expertly prepared, beautifully presented, and delicious. My husband highly recommends trying Bobby's bread pudding. The other part of Bobby's service is cleaning up the kitchen and doing all the dishes. It was really nice to not have to worry about any of that and he did a great job. I would highly recommend Bobby Greene to anyone thinking about using an in-home chef. He is the best!!

I am from Montreal visiting some friends in Seattle who had a baby a few weeks ago. As a gift to them we decided to hire a private chef to come in and cook a meal for us in their home so that we wouldn't have to worry about going out with a new born baby to a nice dinner. That is how I stumbled upon Thumbtack and Ken. Dinner was absolutely delicious and Ken is fantastic and very personable! Everything was such a breeze. He came up with a perfect menu and executed beautifully. If I could have him cook for me back home on a weekly basis I would! Thank you so much Ken you made the night a perfect one! What Ana amazing experience!!

I'm so busy working a 9-5 and also being a full time musician that I have been living on fast food! Without enough time to plan meals, and having no idea what I should and shouldn't be eating these days, I hired Brett to take care of that (and BOY did she!?). Not only was she professional and on time (which is rare for us musicians 😂) but she didn't just give me a "run of the mill" meal plan. She discussed with me my eating habits and schedule and (for lack of a better word) designed a meal plan for me that was not only healthy, BUT DELICIOUS! I desperately tried to click on 6 out of 5 stars but instead my computer just yelled at me! WILL RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE!

“Our company hired Joy Max Catering to provide a traditional holiday meal for our 2013 Annual Employee Holiday Luncheon. There was more than enough delicious food to go around for the 100 employees in attendance, and everyone was very pleased with the quality of their meals. The delivery timing was spot on, and everything was still piping hot despite the 30-45 minute drive to our somewhat remote location. Joy’s prices were very reasonable, and she was more than agreeable to work with. Joy was always willing to adapt to our needs, and was also capable of providing for last minute additions to our head count, which was much appreciated. We would definitely choose Joy again for future company events. Thanks Joy!”

Working with Chef Cyndie was a wonderful experience! I had a unique request for her to cater an event for friends (out of state) who had just welcomed their first child. Chef Cyndie was so accommodating with my tight time frame, and was so helpful in selecting a delicious menu. I have received so many compliments since Cyndie delivered the catered meal for 6. Everyone loved all the entrees and sides she prepared. Chef Cyndie had also been to the market that day and dried out some fresh oranges for the new Mom to snack on. Thank you Cyndie for creating such a wonderful menu, meal, and experience for my friends!

We love Patty's food as well as her customer service! She works with us to come up with monthly meal plans that suit our dietary needs and desires and our busy schedule. It's amazing how much time she saves us, freeing us up to focus on work and leisure :) Patty is talented and versatile and has great professional integrity. She always provides a range of choices that cover different cooking styles, and she tracks our favorite dishes while each month suggesting something new that she is excited to make for us. She discusses every aspect of the pricing with us and makes sure that we love every dish that we order from her. Patty is also very well-organized, something that has impressed us since the beginning. She is a great communicator and is very flexible with our complicated schedule. We are lucky to have found her!

We hired Sue for a private party for a small group. She was collaborative on the menu and helped us with all the prep for the evening. She was on time. Very professional and pleasant. The food was delicious. Would definitely recommend her to others.

Chef Bert responded to my Thumbtack request with a thorough presentation of what his company has to offer, assuring me that they have worked our venue many times. I am the Mother of the Bride and was confident that Chef Bert was a good candidate to cater my daughters wedding. My daughter and her fiance met with Chef Bert and were impressed with his experience and personality. As part of the decision process, Chef Bert offers an amazing, dinner for 6 in your own home, to try the food of your choice, prior to the wedding. Bert and his assistant Ron, arrived an hour and a half before dinner, dressed in tuxedos and ready to cook. The table was stunning. From the appetizers to the salad to the main course, the food was absolutely one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten. Not only is he a talented Chef, Bert is a kind and funny man. We are all looking forward to working with him and his staff (not to mention, eating his food again!)at my daughter's wedding in July. I will write an update after the wedding and let you know how it went.

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!

Most important -- the food was incredible! Her menu was superb, from beginning to end, and was able to satisfy a range of dietary preferences. In addition, she's a joy to work with, making the meal that much more special. I would definitely recommend!

    I had a simple meal. It was a cheeseburger with a side of fries; but it was one of the best meal I ever had. The burger itself was nice and juicy, the bun was buttery and toasted perfectly. The veggies weren't overbearing, and the ratio of meat to bread to veggies were near perfect. I will definitely be eating from LLola's again.

    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!!

      I took a cooking class from Debbie. She had prepped her supplies before class, which made the class run smoothly. As she progressed through the recipes she explained why she used a certain ingredient and told us what other choices we might have. Debbie's cooking skills seem so effortless! There were no "stupid" questions, Debbie felt that ALL questions were equally important. At the end of the class we all sat down to enjoy a delicious, well presented meal. Debbie is delightful and has an absolute love of cooking.
