Chef Mitchell and his wonderful staff catered my husband's 50th birthday party for about 45 guests. He helped us put together an incredible menu, beverages and atmosphere for the event. He was able to be professional, yet personal in his attention to every detail. Chef Mitchell made sure to listen and implement my vision and tailor it to my husband's taste. Guests were raving about the excellent food and the presentation. I appreciated having someone come in and take care of all the details of service, seating, decorations and other arrangements. It was great to be able to relax and enjoy all of our guests, knowing their needs were being attended to by the staff. It was a wonderful, memorable evening. We are already planning on a smaller event for Chef Mitchell to be able to share his talents as a chef in the near future. I would recommend Always Cook-N to anyone for all types of events, both small and large without any hesitation. Chef Mitchell provides top-notched catering with a focus on fabulous food and personalized service.

About

My wife and I recently got married and decided to book our catering and reception with George and his staff at Al Lago. We were new to booking a party of this size, but from the first we spoke to George we were given amazing customer service every step of the way. From creating a custom menu and helping pair the perfect wine with our food choices, George and his staff were so helpful. Everything turned out exactly how my wife and I wanted and our guests had a wonderful time. we will defiantly book future events and parties with Al Lago. Thanks again.

We had a high school graduation party in our backyard with about 95 guests, open-house style. Joy Max Catering set up a beautiful taco bar buffet with freshly skillet-heated corn tortillas, shredded beef and chicken and all the toppings, plus a fruit and a green salad. We loved the menu presented on its own stand for guests to see, plus each food item had a little description card on a stand. The buffet table truly looked very special. The food prep, set up, monitoring, and clean up was great. We were able to enjoy the guests, and knew the food was managed expertly.

Gwen, you are an amazing caterer! Thank you! Yellow Bird Catering catered a buffet for my wedding reception and everything worked out perfectly. I was having a difficult time finding a caterer that was reasonable and willing to work with me. I kept getting frustrated by caterers by their lack of flexibility to get the meal we were wanting. That all changed when I talked with Gwen. She was friendly, understanding and willing to work with me. Her prices were reasonable and as soon as I said "wedding" she didn't charge her demeanor like the other caterers did. My reception had 200 guests and almost everyone of them complemented the buffet. I don't know how else to explain how satisfied I was...great food, great customer service, and reception dinner that went off without a hitch. I am so thankful I found Yellow Bird Catering!

Dear Patty, I can’t thank you enough for all what you did for us last Sunday in our son First Communion party. Your dedication, detail oriented and professionalism impressed us and our guest. You handle everything with a finest that I can’t do it better, you anticipated every single detail, even when I was not able to be at home because we were at church. The fact you were able to figure out things without us there was priceless for me. I’m glad I was able to meet you and have your services for our little event, THANKS to you I was able to enjoy this very special moment of my son life. Again, thanks so much for being there and for going for the extra mile with everything!!! Claudia and Alejandro. Sammamish.

Puerto Vallarta did an amazing job catering our wedding reception. I requested that appetizers and dinner be delivered at separate times because of the structure of the event and they did just that. Oscar Vega is absolutely amazing and worked really hard to make our event everything we wanted. Everyone enjoyed the food and repeatedly asked who the caterer was. Of course, I was happy to let them know it was Puerto Vallarta. As we all know planning your own wedding reception has its stressful moments and some uncertainty; with that being said, Oscar and his team were very flexible when changes needed to be made. I initially chose them because of their pricing, the beat out the competition compared to other Mexican restaurants. I will use these guys again for future events. Thanks Puerto Vallarta!!!

About

After doing a pot luck for over 20 years for our Company's Thanksgiving lunch, we thought we would try catering. The most important thing was that it had to be ready on time. This event turned out perfect!! On time! the tables were beautiful even with candles! The servers were excellent Nick & Max very friendly and helpful, knew what they were doing and just took charge of the event. The food was delivered, set up and afterwards it was bagged up, the only minor error was that there were no take out boxes! The food was Hot and wonderfully flavorful, plenty of it for the amount of people. I had many compliments from employees and questions as to who was the Caterer. I would highly recommend "Taste of the Town" Catering and hope to have the opportunity to work with them again. This was my first time using Thumbtack and glad I did. I found "Taste of Tacoma". Thanks again Nick and Max for a job well done and of course Jimmy.

Professional, friendly people with great food to boot!! I utilized O'Sheas Catering and Events for an annual event that I host to honor mothers who have lost children to youth violence. The sheer nature of this event is sensitive and has no room for mistakes and the folks at O'Sheas gave me one less thing to worry about. From the pre-event tasting to the actual clean up after the event, they were always responsive to my needs, answered emails and phone calls in a timely fashion and were prompt the day of the show. The event's guests were especially pleased with the BBQ brisket and their feedback made me happy that I chose that as one of our dinner options. Many thanks to O'Sheas, I will definitely be considering this business for my events in the future.
