Paul and Stephanie were the caterers for our wedding reception this August. They did a really fabulous job putting together a menu that was perfect for a summer event. Their pricing was fair and affordable and they were receptive, friendly and conscientious. We'd recommend them highly!

Hands-down, if you're looking for the best bartender to hire, this is the one. We put on a five hour wedding reception for approximately 100 guests. Before the event, she was wonderful at advising us of what to purchase and how much.!she arrived well before the event ton set up and went above her duties, bringing drinks to guests at their tables and busing dirty dishes, etc. She interacted with the guests as well in an extremely warm, hospitable manner. Although I could only give her 5 stars in rating, 10 would be more appropriate. Anytime I host another event, I would hire her and highly recommend her to others! You will not be disappointed in any way with this hire. Thank you for all of your help last night!!!!

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!

Pacific Northwest Catering did a phenomenal job! Al met me a couple weeks ahead of time at the event location and gave me advice on what we would need to make the party a success. He directed me on the number of table, linens, glasses, etc. to order. He planned the menu and even gave me tips on amounts to order based on type of party and number of guests. His employees were incredibly helpful and did a beautiful job on setup and execution! As soon as Al got to the event on day of (he could tell I was a bit stressed) I knew I had nothing more to worry about. Then there was the food - AMAZING!!! We were complimented by multiple guests on how wonderful the food and how impressed they were with the service. I would highly recommend Pacific Northwest Catering for any event!

Francisco was better than I could have possibly hoped for. I had a last minute need for a caterer for dinner for my husband's 50th birthday party, AND needed several accommodations for a variety of food allergies. Not only did Francisco respond to my request quickly and provide delectable allergen free Mexican dinner buffet for 16, he communicated with me to get clarity on the food issues and arrived early, with what we needed. The guests were impressed and I will definitely be using K&F Catering again! (Oh and the price was very reasonable and in line with market rates for his services!)

Nola and her staff just helped me throw a 50th birthday party for my husband. I hadn't planned a large catered event since my wedding, so I was a little nervous. From the moment I started talking with Nola, her extensive experience was obvious. Not only did she come up with a delicious menu, she also came to our home a month in advance and helped me decide how many tables to rent and the best way to do the layout. I felt the personal visit was above and beyond! The evening of the party, Nola and her staff arrived early and it was amazing watching them work. Not only were they extremely organized, but they worked together well and even went to the trouble of learning many of the guests' names and helped out by taking guests' coats and gifts. Many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with Nola and her staff. The food was amazing, and although I had ordered extra, hoping to have leftovers, everything was devoured with many people going back for more! Nola obviously really enjoys what she does and it showed. I really can't recommend them highly enough. Did I mention my kitchen was cleaner when they left for the night than it was when the party started? Amazing.

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!

Using Thumbtack to find a caterer for our event was one of the wisest decisions I have made in my show planning experience of 33 years. Thumbtack asked all of the right questions and I found the caterer with the best fit for my event that same day. I will continue to use Thumbtack for all of our other events in the future.

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

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!

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.

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.

We used 314 Pie for catering our wedding and we were very happy we chose them. They responded very quickly by email and phone whenever we had a question, arrived in plenty of time, and were very professional and polite serving guests. Also, they were able to serve all of our 100+ guests very quickly. The pies were very delicious, we and all of our guests were very happy. Highly recommend!
