Paul Stanley, his wonderful wife and partner Stephanie and their incredible staff hit it out of the ballpark for us last evening in catering my daughter's wedding reception! Their professionalism, warmth and attention to detail were above and beyond any other professional caterer I've ever worked with. From the initial contact to the clean-up at the end I was repeatedly reassured about their skills in preparing and serving the feast. And "feast" it was! Our 65 guests as well as the bride and groom couldn't stop raving about the food and service. And this was done by a crew that traveled 2 1/2 hours to get here! So go ahead, call 'em! You won't be disappointed!

Paul and Stephanie were amazing from beginning to end. From our first tasting, where we were able to try a wide variety of foods, we were so excited to work with them. The day of our wedding, they were on time, looked professional, and quickly prepped and set up so that food would be available as quickly as possible for our guests. The food was AMAZING and we received many, many compliments from our friends and family. Thank you SO MUCH! We will be recommending you to everyone we know for catering needs.

As a Catering and Events manager, I've worked with Katie for several years . She's so responsible and alert, always seeing what needs doing, leads others well in a cheerful, positive manner, and most of all, knows how to please her guests. She is a very professional bartender, I know she could be an asset to any private event. Her professional ethics are beyond reproach.

I hired Pacific NW Catering to cater a lunch for a benefit luncheon. From the beginning, he was prompt with returning phone calls and following up with me on all the details about the luncheon. He was experienced with knowing what would work well and kept the pricing within our budget. We served a plated lunch which received many compliments - it was plated nicely and was very tasty. He and his assistants were on time and had everything set up quickly and took care of all the clean-up. Thank you!

I don't even know where to begin. Al and his team were on top of everything! Every time I sent Al an email about any questions there was a response not even an hour later. When my mom and I went to sample the meal we instantly fell in love! Everyone was so so kind and quick and alert and the food was incredible!! We got so many compliments on our choice of catering. Everyone loved it!! Thank you Al and all of your team. You really helped make our wedding incredible!!

Chef Everett Wells and Destiny Catering is a class act. The food arrives hot and it is perfectly prepared. The menu is well thought out with the clients requested dietary needs in mind. Chef Everett arrives early to set up to make sure that everything is exactly as it should be. My company (BEHR/KILZ) has been extremely satisfied with the level of service and quality of the scrumptious food. The menu choices are not simply cookie cutter choices, they have some wonderfully inspired choices as well. Ours clients (large property and association management companies) are so impressed with the hot, delicious meals during our meetings. As an added bonus, Chef Everett is a delight to work with.

My wedding isn't until July but I wanted to give my first review now. Chantel has been amazing to work with. She's very quick in her responses and extremely accommodating. We worked together to come up with a great solution for my catering needs at a great price. She even drove to my house for the tasting, again very accommodating. The food was excellent and we were able to tweak a few things for the final menu. I have zero concerns about Chantel and her team coming through in a big way making a delicious dinner for our wedding guests!

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.

Couldn't be more happier with my decision to go with Dogfather catering. Stephen went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went perfectly. He was more than happy to accommodate all our wants and needs and the whole process was stress free. Everyone loved his pizzas and the gourmet hot dog cart. Not to mention all his salads are delicious and a huge hit. Aside from his food, his staff is friendly and professional, they did all the could to make things run smoothly. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I still cannot thank him enough for all his hard work!

Stephen catered our party for my daughter's highschool graduation. He and his assistants were awesome! First of all the pizzas were absolutely delicious. Our guests couldn't stop complimenting on how good the food was. He made the party special. He was engaging with the guests, explaining the different kinds and fulfilling requests. He was so wonderful to work with and kept our spirits up when the weather for a planned backyard event turned stormy. He was the best!

Chef Emme catered our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the choice we made of hiring this company! The food was out of this world. We got so many compliments and comments throughout the night and days after. If you are looking for a caterer that will provide delicious, not your typical "wedding food", Chef Emme is the way to go. Besides the amazing food, it was such an easy process working with the Chef prior to our wedding day. She was very responsive, answered every single one of my questions in detail and was overall super easy to communicate with. I could really tell she really loves what she does and wants to make sure you are happy and satisfied. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking for a wedding caterer.

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.

We had a unique, rapid turn around request, and Chef Emme completely delivered for us! Our turkeys and ham were so delicious as the centerpieces of our office Thanksgiving, and were beautiful to boot. We'll definitely be coming back to Chef Emme for next year's Thanksgiving, and she is high on the list of consideration for the other catered event we do each year, too. Thanks, Chef Emme!

Sanja reached out to me within an hour of my request for caterers. She sent me a full proposal with menu items, cost break out, and everything I could possibly need. She worked with me for hours on end, revising the proposal 4 times to meet my needs. She was patient, kind, flexible, and so helpful! She has stayed in constant contact with me, answering every question within minutes. Although they were over my budget, because of their diverse menu, and especially her customer service, I recommended to my Market Manager that we spend the extra money. I'm so excited to entertain our clients next week and I know I won't be disappointed!

I hired Navi almost a month ago to cater a birthday party. I typically don't write reviews since this much time has passed but his service was so wonderful that I would be remiss if I did not let people know. As mentioned, I used Navi to cater a birthday party for about 35 guests in August. I did this after the chef I usually use canceled 3 days prior to the party due to a family emergency. Needless to say, I was incredibly stressed and did not know what I was going to do. That's when I started googling and decided to put in a last-ditch request on this website. I am SO, SO thankful I did! Finding Navi was a blessing and here is why: **Super Competitive Bid: He was willing to come to a price that mutually agreeable to get the job done right. **Quick Turnaround: Within hours of accepting his bid, we had a full menu set and event plans determined. **Dedicated and Professional: Navi went above and beyond to make sure things were in perfect order the day of the party. I was highly impressed especially given that he was hired on such short notice. **Quality of Service: The food was absolutely wonderful! I received several compliments and inquiries as to what caterer I used. This was extremely flattering given that we had a few VIP guests from the Seahawks celebrating with us. **Friendly and Warm: He was incredibly personable, polite and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be using him again and cannot recommend him enough! Brittni E.

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.

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!

Melissa presented on the Pacific NW Mushroom Festival stage for my radio program - AND SHE WAS FANTASTIC.

I can highly recommend Melissa for her prepared professional presentation - and would ask her again without a second thought.

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!

Twelve Baskets catered our rehearsal dinner and they did a fantastic job! Vita and her crew handled all aspects professionally and carefully, and I always received a quick response to my many questions. I was particularly concerned about the timing, as our venue had no kitchen, but Vita assured me that all the food would be hot and ready, and she was right! Savannah and the on-site staff were all very responsive, attentive, professional. There are lots of menu options to choose from--we ended up with steak (perfectly cooked!), salmon, grilled vegetables, and berry shortcakes to show off all the wonderful PNW flavors. Everything was delish. You can rest easy, if you use Twelve Baskets!

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.
