It was a true pleasure to work with Stephanie, who delivered a catered appetizer and dessert banquet for our event that was generous and professionally done. It exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend Emerald City for your catering needs, and, if the occasion arises again, we will absolutely use them again.

I selected Thyme Well Spent Catering because my girlfriend used them for a graduation party in June and she highly recommended the company. I decided to give them a chance and use them for my cousin's September wedding. (I am a chef myself so I was in charge of the food for the wedding) Being a chef, I have to say that I was highly impressed with the cuisine that was brought in from Thyme Well Spent Catering. The anti-pasto platter and bruschetta for appetizer were displayed to perfection, the side dishes and entrées were the correct portion and seasoned to perfection. I was highly impressed with their style and presentation . I would definitely recommend Thyme Well Spent to anyone who needs any event catered.

In a nutshell, Pacific Northwest Catering went way beyond expectations for my son's rehearsal dinner. I cast a wide net in searching for a caterer with less than 2 months to spare before the event and Matt's company was one of the first to respond. Leading up to dinner, Matt met me at the venue and helped with food selection, placement of tables in a small space, ordering of the correct number and items for the rental equipment (tables, chairs, linen, china, glasses, all of it!) I made changes well within 2 weeks of the dinner date that was accommodated with no questions. It was pouring the night of the dinner but Matt and his staff were right there helping dry off the tables and chairs that got wet when delivered. His staff were very professional, well dressed, prompt, courteous, and friendly. The food was amazing. Appetizers, salad, prime rib, salmon, potatoes, sauteed veggies, and creme brulee. I don't know how he pulled it all off as there was only a refrigerator in the 'kitchen' but friends and family are still commenting on the delicious dinner and the amazing job that he did! Clean up was so thorough that the event coordinator at the winery was amazed that she'd only have to sweep up after we left. Whether or not you know what you're doing, I highly recommend this company for your event. They're very efficient, very mindful of your budget, and very good at what they do!

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!

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!)

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 Emme was a joy. I hosted 15 friends for brunch and her dish selections were perfect; everyone commented on the delicious food. She was efficient, came with everything she needed and that we discussed, she cleaned up, and was easy to have in my kitchen. Her professionalism, presence and talent helped make my party a success. Thank you Emme!

We hosted a dinner party for 10 at our home. Nola and her assistant Flo prepared an amazing meal, from appetizers through dessert. Nola was so easy to work with through the planning stages and had great ideas for how to optimize our home and time with our guests. As if the delicious food weren't enough, she also made sure the kitchen and dining room were clean before she left, which was an added bonus to an otherwise exquisite evening. I would highly recommend her and will not hesitate to call her again when we entertain.

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.

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!
