Paul and Stephanie catered our wedding this summer and we were very pleased with their professionalism, the taste, quality, and presentation of their food, and their dedication in helping us realize our wedding vision. I was first contacted by them on Thumbtack in response to our request for a wedding caterer. We had already exhausted options from The Knot Vendor List and had been both overwhelmed with prices and underwhelmed with food taste and quality. Paul and Stephanie reached out to us quoting a plated meal including beef and fish for the same price as the cheap chicken buffets we'd been experiencing. They were kind enough to visit us in our home where Chef prepared generous samples of all the dishes we were considering. While we were eating, Stephanie took down details on the wedding and presentation. The food was phenomenal and hands down better than any other samples we'd been given. Chef even bustled about in my kitchen and found my Tupperware so he could package up the leftovers and leave them in the fridge for us. We decided to also take advantage of their pastry side and get our cupcakes for our dessert table from them. Stephanie hand delivered them to my work so I could sample them with the Fiancé. Chef did a great job at making me feel comfortable with everything he was preparing with his knowledge of gluten free cooking and baking and comprehension of cooking safety for individuals with Celiac. Nearly all our item we ordered were gluten free, and the ones that weren't, were kept separate. The months leading up to the wedding was simple and easy communication, I wish I could have said this for all my vendors. Payments expectations were made clear and could be easily made by credit card. Stephanie made time to have two additional consultations to discuss food plating, food table decorations, and cupcake topping design. I supplied her with a binder and the weekend before the wedding she had a phone consultation with me to review the details and it was evident she had already looked at all the contents extensively. The day of the wedding the catering team was on point. They jumped in and took over many of the duties our wedding coordinator was not attending to including setting up our appetizer and dessert tables and guest tables to my design plan. The food was excellent and all of our guests have said they couldn't stop stuffing themselves with delicious noms. The plating was lovely, the cupcake toppings were just as I'd envisioned, and the waitstaff and bartender were very attentive. Stephanie was present at the wedding and Chef Paul had prepared most of the food but was catering another event. I was so pleased with her and her staff and her attention to detail and hard work helping us create our day. They packed up all the leftovers for us and we were told they were the last vendors there still working hard at helping everyone clean up. If you are looking at catering a large event do yourself a favor and check out Paul and Stephanie. They are not only a great chef and planner duo, they are also incredibly kind and compassionate individuals. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't know Stephanie was also a wedding coordinator, I wish I would have hired her instead of the girl we did. Additionally, their prices are more than reasonable and worth every penny.

The bartender, Whitney was fantastic. My only complaint would be with the company itself and the lack of communication.Planning a wedding is stressful as it is.

Chantel and her team catered our wedding July 8, 2017. Everything went as planned and the potatoes were amazing!! The food was a little cold when served and the chicken was overseasoned. My husband and I didn't care for the vegetables that were served. We had the Caesar salad served; I enjoyed it but my husband did not. The croutons were soggy. We had hors d'oeuvres passed around, but my husband and I didn't get a chance to try. Overall, I am pleased on how everything turned out.

Phenomenal job. Every detail was taken care of by Al. Matt's food was delicious and well presented. Their communication and service was beyond outstanding. Al came to the rescue with the small details: saving money and making it all look amazing. They oversaw both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. -a lesbian couple from Seattle

He worked effortlessly with our crazy schedule, arrived early, and delivered a stunningly delicious and simple meal just like we had asked for.

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.

We had Stephen cater our wedding on 8/29. It was by far the most painless process ever. From the get go, Stephen was a breeze to work with and removed all the stress from dealing with feeding 100 wedding guests. His price was very fair especially given the amazing quality of the food. Im still getting compliments on how delicious and fun the food was at our wedding! Will book Dogfather again for any future events!

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

I have hired Joy Max Catering for my wedding catering for 130 people. Our wedding was on budget and we had only 4 months to plan it. Joy Max Catering has worked with us based on our budget and we were able to pick a menu we wanted. We were able to add and subtract thins we wanted or didn't choose to have. When I first tried my herb roasted chicken, I was wondering how come I could never make a chicken like that. It was tender, juicy and lots of flavor. The food had flavor and it was very homemade & thats what we were looking for. Everyone who I asked about my food, they said it was excellent! I am glad I have met the owner Joy, she is a great person to work with and talk about food. She is very professional, sweet and very very hard working. I would recommend Joy Max for an outstanding ability to work with people, base their menu, arrange payments and also cook a deliciously tasty food. Thank you Joy Max for your services.

I have attended several events catered by Good Taste Unlimited. The business is careful to listen to the specific needs and requests of the host and is very accommodating. I found the food was excellent and the presentation lovely and appetizing. All events remained on track. The caterers checked in often to ensure all was going well throughout the duration of the events. These ladies are true professionals. The scholarship event which I attended far surpassed my expectations. They deliver a fun and creative menu. Their culinary artistry is masterful.

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'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.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      Do you tip a wedding caterer?

      Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
