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!

This was for my granddaughters Sweet 16 Birthday Party. We had about 30 guests and we rented a hall. I needed someone to help setup the tables prepare the food and make sure food and drinks didn't run out. I had never thrown a large party like this before and didn't really know what to expect. Jessica came in and asked me some questions as to what I wanted and then took over. She was very professional and very quick. The food and drinks were prepared and displayed perfectly in a buffet style. She even assisted with the birthday cake letting the birthday girl cut the 1st piece and served to the other guests. She also cleaned everything and had the left over food packeged up. I am so glad I hired Jessica and so thankful to her for everything she did. The party wouldn't have been as great if it weren't for her and I certainly wouldn't have been able to relax and enjoy the festivities.

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!

We had a party with 22 people in downtown Seattle. Francisco was very responsive to the type of food we wanted and our budget. He was there at the right time, set everything up so that it looked beautiful, and was very nice to work with. The food was delicious and we got lots of compliments from guests during and after the party. I highly recommend going with K&F.

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.

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!

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.

Michael Fort is a professional, experienced and skilled photographer and entertainer. Aubrey and I feel it takes more than camera skills to capture and create the moments and memories Michael produced on January 14th, 2012, our Wedding Day, on the beach in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. I met Michael right after he left his stage entertaining at DJ night in a resturant/bar in Federal Way WA. My daughter actually recommended him. That evening he showcased himself as a polished entertainer and showman. His skills came in handy for our reception in Puerto Vallarta. Our wedding was a destination event in Mexico. Michael has photographed many destination large and small weddings and events in all the beautiful Mexican cities. Because of his experience, knowledge and contacts he was able to save us valuable time and money arranging transpotation, music and equipment for the entire wedding party in various locations around Vallarta. Michael had personally selected several locations on Banderous Bay and on the beach as well as the Malicon in Valarta. He rented (2) 18 passenger large Toyota Vans. Tourists and locals on the beach thought we were celebrities in town for a photo shoot. What an awesome experience for my wife and I. Personally Michael is relaxed and friendly, however when it is time for pictures he shows off his professional skills keeping everyone in the picture focus on him or where ever he wants to looking. Thinking back about the pictures I have taken, remembering how difficult it is keeping everyone focused for a pictures, its hard to get everyone looking at the camera for the several thousand pictures he took for our event. I highly recomend Michael Fort your next local or destination wedding, He will capture and creat pictures for your wedding to delight family and friends for years to come. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and my family. You made our wedding day beautiful. Sincerely Jim and Aubrey Triggs

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!
