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.

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 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!!

Working with Angela has been an enlightening experience, one that has allowed me to clarify my goals and learn how to work effectively toward them. When I started working with Angela in January 2015, I felt scattered. I was allowing others to dictate how my time was spent. I wanted to find time to lead a healthier life, and yet I felt that the mundane tasks associated with my job as a professor--committee meetings or grading--generated too many obligations. Five months later, my conversations with Angela have helped me to understand the importance of scheduling time for everyday activities that bring me joy. Angela has greatly contributed to a new balance between my personal and professional life. I have found Angela to be a caring professional who seeks solutions tailored to your lifestyle. I am learning to prioritize exercise, healthy food--and writing, the professional task that I most enjoy.

“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!”

Chef David Boyd- Private Chef-Down to Earth Cuisine "Delicious, organic, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully plated dishes"- On August 7th I hired Private Chef David Boyd to prepare an Italian Dinner for 10 in my home. (I had offered the "Italian Dinner for 8" as an auction item not knowing at the time who I would hire) He (and his lovely wife, also hired to assist him) arrived at 1pm to begin cooking for the 5:30pm event. Earlier in the week, we met to decide on the menu, appropriate tableware and wine/beverage pairings for the 5 course menu. We went with a Northern Italian theme featuring peaches because they were in season and seafood. I handled the purchase of the wine and cocktail ingredients but paid half of the per person food cost up front so that he could do all the grocery shopping which he did using local fish/meat stores and organically grown fruit and veggies from our area farmers market. He also arrived with all of his own knives and most utensils needed though he did use my mixing bowls and cookware. The entire meal was then prepared in our kitchen. Because he makes everything from scratch like croutons, mayonnaise, sugared garnish for the dessert etc. it is very time consuming, labor intensive and requires full use of your kitchen. He and his wife worked hard and fast for the 4.5 hours before guests arrived. They were conscientious and they cleaned and emptied the garbage etc. as they went. The result was delicious, organic, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully plated dishes that my husband and I were proud to serve to our guests. I would suggest discussing the estimated prep time for individual menu items as well as the per person cost ahead of time. Chef David seems capable of working within any reasonable budget, but he does require a lot of prep time if you choose complex menu items so that factors into his hourly rate. I think the dinner cost me more than what guests paid at the auction but that's totally my fault for not being more clear about my budget and for suggesting such complex ideas like an appetizer of scallops served in some sea shells I had. All in all, it was a very impressive, well paced, 5 course meal, and my guests enjoyed hearing Chef David explain the details of each delicious course as it was served. It was so nice to be able to just relax and enjoy my guests rather than stress about the food and clean-up. A really fun experience! I recommend hiring Chef David Boyd of Down to Earth Cuisine for your next dinner party. - Suzy H.

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!

Chef Anessa has been wonderful for our family! We both work full time, so having fresh, home cooked meals ready for us when we get home has been amazing. She comes once a week and always prepares a nice selection of entrees that are perfect for dinner and then I use any leftovers for lunches during the week, too. She partners with us to figure out the menu each week. I love that she brings us recommendations but also is willing to try some recipe suggestions I have. She asks for feedback and is very responsive to adjusting to your preferences. Our three kids have loved trying her dishes and we love that it's getting them to be more adventurous eaters. Thanks, Chef Anessa!

Shauna provided the food for my wedding on Orcas Island over Labor Day weekend. The venue was quite literally a farm by the water and with limited storage, heat sources, or water, but she and her team pulled off the most memorable, delicious, and picture perfect meals I could have dreamed of. All of my guests were wowed by the preparation and flavors of all the food. I would highly recommend Shauna's services for any event, large (my 150 person destination wedding) or small (a fun evening seafood broil for 6) .... Cheers!

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.

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.

We had an evening that far exceeded our expectations of fantastic food and friends in our own home thanks to Rose. From the meeting where she asked all the right questions about our guests ( dietary needs, menu choices, etc.) the level of participation we would like in the preparation of the meal, and other pertinent details that were sure to guarantee a memorable party for 13 of our friends and neighbors. We had a blast following her instructions as we helped prepare a meal that we enjoyed thoroughly and sat down as a group to enjoy. We would highly recommend this company to anybody who loves great food, learning a from a fun and fabulous chef, and an evening with a group of friends and/or family that will be a memory to savor.

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!

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 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!

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.

What I love about Mia and her passion for nutrition is the way she brings together substance and flair. Not only are the meals she makes nourishing and balanced...they are also beautiful. The way she brings colours and textures together makes enjoying the meal begin long before a fork finds your hand. Each meal influenced or made by Mia has easily become a favourite.
