About

Chef Paul and Stephanie were the perfect catering partners at my wedding. From the first call they were committed to deliver the Middle Eastern inspired menu I was looking for and came through beautifully, from the dinner, to the cake and deserts to the service. The food was so delicious! We received many compliments from our guests and would hire them again. The menu Chef Paul designed reflected my vision of a unique meal inspired by Moroccan and Lebanese cuisine. Chef Paul and Stephanie were so easy to work with and flexible. Stephanie was an absolute joy to work with. Her professionalism and responsiveness put me at ease. I was able to trust her with every aspect of the catering. She listened to what I wanted and consistently followed up in a professional and timely manner. Wishing you both a lot of success. Thank you for sharing your passion for great, flavorful food!

For the third year It's Party Time Catering has provided the food for our Annual Breakfast with Santa. Couldn't do it without Viki. The food is always great and we get a lot of complements. We've used Viki for weddings and memorial service as well, I can alway count on her professionalism, her presentation and great food. Would never have a party without her!

About

Carson's catering did a fabulous job. They incorporated all of our favorite foods. They made everything so classy without being expensive. My guests were raving about the food especially the stuffed mushrooms. There was plenty of savory and sweet treats for everyone. The food was honestly one of my favorite things about the reception and what everyone was talking about. I would recommend Carson's catering to anyone because the food was decadent but affordable. They were also very available and professional throughout the reception.

Parties and Events NW made my son's bar mitzvah a great success. Rebecca was so easy to work with and brought a lot of creative and fun ideas to the project. I think her execution of the graffiti theme really set the mood and everyone was raving about the party. Of all the vendors I worked with to pull together our party, Parties and Events NW was the most responsive and professional. I can't wait to get all my pictures and will be recommending them at every opportunity.

We had a very simple wedding ceremony at home, followed by an intimate catered dinner with a grand total of 11 people including me and the groom. It was greatly appreciated that staff were willing to drive all the way from Tigard to our house in Kalama, Washington. Miranda was well organized and friendly. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, thoroughly answering any questions we had for her. We did a food tasting prior to booking and enjoyed the food we were able to sample, although after the fact we wished we would have had the opportunity to try the coriander salmon with peach/avocado salsa since it was "award-winning". We ended up ordering it as one of our three entrees and were a bit nervous that it may end up being a little over the top for us since we usually prepare salmon very simply at home. However, we found it to be delicious. The guests were very complimentary about the dinner. I especially liked the penne pasta with mushrooms and truffle cream sauce. We were sent two caterers for our event, one to serve food and one to bartend. We provided our own alcohol for the bartender to serve, so we had ingredients and garnishes for most basic cocktails. We also provided homemade mint-infused simple syrup to add to mojitos. When the catering staff showed up on the wedding day, the staff member designated as our bartender confided that she was very nervous since she had not bartended in about 30 years. She did not know how to make basic cocktails, which surprised us a little, but she was very friendly and accommodating, and used a flip book of recipes for guidance. The groom pointed out the mint simple syrup in the fridge while the bartender was setting up for the event and explained to her that it was for the mojitos. When I took a sip of the first mojito I ordered that evening, it was extremely strong since it had no simple syrup and just a splash of club soda. The bartender was more than happy to add the simple syrup and a bit more club soda at my request, which made it taste great. I was a bit worried about how my guests' drinks might be tasting, but didn't hear any complaints. The bartender was hard working and personable with the guests. We provided our own coffee to be served at the event. However, the grounds we had were either too course for the catering company's percolator or the measurement was off, because the coffee poured out looking more like dilute tea. We ended up making coffee for our guests with our French press. The catering van pulled into the garage and remained parked there in order to load the food and supplies into our house. The garage is the first thing one sees when he or she is driving up our long, winding gravel driveway. The groom asked staff if they could please shut the garage door once they were inside so that guests would be prompted to use the walkway around the side of the house and enter from the entrance rather than through the garage and laundry room. The garage door was never shut, so all of the guests came in this way. It wasn't a huge deal, but it wasn't as visually appealing. Overall, we were happy with the way our wedding dinner turned out and found the staff at Divine Catering to be very friendly. I may have decided not to purchase a bartending package had I known that we would be provided with an inexperienced bartender, but the evening still turned out well regardless.

Mother's Day 2015, hosted a 3 generation, including 3 mother's, brunch with Tempted Palate Catering in our home. Chef Ruby arrived early, ushered us out of the kitchen and truly pampered us all! Menu was delightful, food delicious and I can't remember a time so relaxed and enjoyable without also worrying the meal. She did it all. I highly recommend Chef Ruby for any catering needs you may have.

I first enjoyed Chef Jenn’s delicious food at a work event, and then hired her to cater a dinner party, and then a small brunch at my home. The food at each event was AMAZING!! My guests raved about it for weeks! Jenn is truly a creative Chef, who is very passionate about her cooking. It really shows in her food! I also like that she uses fresh, organic ingredients and has many healthy menu options. I highly recommend her catering services, and will definitely use her again.

We recently engaged Fork It Catering for our wedding reception, and it was the best decision of our entire event! I will start by saying that we have a diverse group of friends, with all different kinds of dietary needs. For some caterers, this would have been burdensome, as I have learned from talking to other couples. But Ron helped us with how we could include elements that would satisfy everyone's dietary requirements. As my husband and I were new to all of this, we weren't sure what we needed to do, and this is where Ron excelled. He helped us plan things that weren't even part of the catering part of our event, guiding us through the important decisions that had to be made, and even giving us the 30 day out plans, 14 day out plans, 7 days out plans, and what we needed to do the day of the event (which was really nothing except to bring the wine and beer that we were bringing from our private collection to share with our friends and family). Throughout the event, there were two overwhelming themes that people told us. They enjoyed the space that we had chosen, a little hidden gem in Southeast Portland. But the praise for the food was what people kept raving about - and I joined in with that praise. Everything was fresh and delectable, spiced perfectly, and the presentation was gorgeous. Not only did Ron and Fork It do our catering, but they did our cake, as well as a separate dessert for our vegan and gluten free friends. People raved over BOTH, and there were several people that had both desserts! In all, the day was beautiful, and made all that much better by Ron and his staff. We couldn't have made a better choice in caterer!

Sean put together 4 separate meals for our team over the course of a month and we were amazed and delighted with the results. His meals were well crafted and tasty, (Thai, Mexican and cioppino) and they were on time, every time. I would absolutely work with Sean again as he had great customer service and creatively covered all our dietary needs.

Chris was so easy to work with, accommodating our requests and specific dietary needs. The menu was created to fit our suggested theme, perfect for our meet and greet picnic for out-of-town guests arriving before our daughter's wedding. The food was fresh, locally sourced, and DELICIOUS! I highly recommend using this catering service.

We had a company picnic. Food was hard since 75% of our staff is vegetarian. Tamera did very well with the menu. The food was good and the service was very good as well. Staff was punctual and friendly. The Marionberry cobbler was divine! We would hire Tamera and her staff again in the future.
