Seattle's beautiful coast can make for excellent wedding venues, and the city's renowned cuisine, especially that featuring seafood, makes for many strong catering options to compliment a great venue. Here are some of the best catering options available in Seattle as reviewed by prior customers.
Lisa Dupar Catering (Redmond, WA)
Lisa Dupar Catering can serve a maximum of 400 people and while they may not accommodate as many guests as the other options, they make up for it with very strong reviews, numerous awards, and high quality food. They make all their meals from scratch and support business by purchasing raw ingredients directly from local farmers. The quality of the food has not been lost on customers and reviewers; past customers say the food is delicious and reasonably priced, and the service has voted Best Caterer five times (2005-2010) by Seattle Bride Magazine. Lisa Dupar Catering is also versatile: with regard to alcohol, they can operate either cash or open bar and can provide champagne toasts, house beer, house wine, and premium liquor. Buffets, cocktail receptions, family style dinners, and more are available for dinner.
Design Perfect (Bellevue, WA)
Design Perfect represents, in effect, the other end of the spectrum as they can serve up to 4,000 guests for cash or open bar and for a variety of dinner options, including buffet, cocktail reception, family style, hors d'oeuvres, and more. Even though the service can adjust for huge events, they can also accomodate smaller parties and include a more personal touch. Reviewers write that the food was more than satisfactory and that more intimate parties with smaller budgets were still given the service's undivided attention.
Sodo Park & Herban Feast Catering (Seattle, WA)
Sodo Park & Herban Feast can serve up to 1,000 people but place heavy emphasis on properly disposing of the waste that comes with such an operation. They use local produce to make all their meals and make sure to employ the most eco-friendly and sustainable practices after the meal is eaten. But don't get the impression that Sodo Park & Herban Feast serve up a bag of yard work at events; reviewers state that all guests made it a point to complement them on the quality of the food and helpfulness of the staff.
Chef to Go Wedding Catering (Bothell, WA)
With serving capabilities for up to 300 people, Chef to Go stresses the client's involvement in the preparation and design. They want the meal to reflect the hosts as much as desirable. They are therefore open to accommodating family recipes or cultural dishes into what they present. And with seventeen years of restaurant experience under their belts, Chef to Go's dinner servings earn rave reviews. They have numerous dinner and alcohol options available, and reviewers say that the staff was very flexible and reliable, even with last-minute changes or unforeseen circumstances.
