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!
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.
Chef Emme Catering Co. catered a beautiful office Thanksgiving lunch for us in Downtown Seattle. It was very quick and easy to book the services and finalize a menu and required services. They were on time and efficient setting up. Most importantly, the food was the best catered food we've all tasted! We will be using Chef Emme again for our catering needs and recommend their services to anyone wanting quality service and food.
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 :)
Al Lago Ristorante has catered events for our organization. The food was delicious and the service was great.
I had KISS cater my wedding this past aug. the job they did from beginning to end was outstanding! They went above and beyond through out my whole wedding planning and wedding experience! It was such a relief to have them be a part of my big day, they helped with any questions or anything I needed, and helped me plan for things that I had not even thought of yet! Best of all the food was so delicious! All of my guests commented on it and how yummy it was. I recommend them to any and everyone! I would hire again in a heart beat!
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!
Those cooking dolls were amazing!!! We had so much fun with them and the food was delicious. Everything cooked fresh on site and they cleaned up the kitchen when done. My wedding was a huge success because of them. I am planning a party for next year and will have them come to do the cooking at that event. They gave my wedding coordinator, also my cousin, two meat balls because she was starving and that made her day. They also saved some appetizers for me and my new husband. Very thoughtful. All the caterers in town were book so I turned to thumbtack and they were the only ones to reply, so I believe God brought them to me and I could not have done any better. So glad everyone was booked. Love you Cooking Dolls!!!! Diana Oleson
holiday parties (3 events) -- food was very good, caterers were friendly and thorough, other than arriving a few minutes late to the events, we have no complaints--thanks Joy!! Merry Christmas!
The food was delicious and whole experience was a plus. Wish I would have known about them sooner.
Excellent! The food was tasty, beautiful presentation, and most of all there was enough food for everyone, plus the bonus of leftovers.
Not only is Brian and his staff wonderful to work with, the food is delicious! We couldn't ask for anything more! He goes out of his way to accomodate our club's needs and requests at an affordable price!
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 : )
Highest praise for the wonderful Twelve Baskets staff, excellent service and delicious food served at our daughter's and son-in-law's wedding reception at Rosehill Community Center in Mukilteo on June 30th. From our first tasting until the very end of wedding day, everything was absolutely spot on! So many of our guests commented to us that Twelve Baskets was unquestionably the best caterer they had ever experienced. Very special kudos to both Vita, who coordinated everything meticulously and efficiently during the planning phase, and Chris, the wonderful bartender who made sure that both the reception and the beverages flowed beautifully throughout the evening. Thanks so much to all of you for your part in creating such a wonderful reception! I highly recommend Twelve Baskets Catering!
I needed a caterer for a wedding reception and initially clung to the first caterer to respond. Before I found Bert, I had a caterer who didnt communicate anything, and was very pricy. Finally, a month before my reception date, I decided to scope out other options. My experience with Bert was outstanding from the very start. He didnt just introduce himself, he had an entire portfolio together with sample menus, pricing and scenarios. His pricing is out of this world, and it includes everything from awesome customer service to impromptu wedding planning! He not only helped me with my food choices, but he also had recommendations on what works best at receptions for setup and execution. He met on location prior to go over everything, and hell even chill your beverages the night before. I cant say enough about the kindness and professionalism of his staff. The food was amazing and cooked fresh on site. I would not hesitate to use Bert in the future, and I would recommend him to everyone and anyone. Thank you for making a nervous day sail smooth!!
The service was quick and amazing. The food is so fresh and delicious. The drinks were scrumptious. I love the atmosphere.
She was located at the WIAA meet from Thurs-Sat and I finally got to taste her awesome food on Saturday. I got her Lizzie's Yakisoba and it was wonderful. Topped with a couple of savory buffalo wings. Glad I stopped in. Plus the Seahawks red bull drink was to die for. Will definitely find her again.
