Everyone at the reception loved the food. Pacific Northwest Catering did a fantastic job, providing delicious food and outstanding service for an extremely reasonable price. There is a wide range of food to choose from: we did a buffet with fresh fruit, bread rolls, garlic mashed potatoes, stir-fried vegetables, teriyaki chicken and salmon for only $19.95 a person. They provide china and silverware and you can rent everything else. We also used them for a bar service and the bartenders, like the waitstaff, were friendly, professional and efficient. I honestly don't know why anyone would choose any other caterer.

Pacific Northwest Catering was absolutely amazing! They catered both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception and I'd use them again for absolutely any event: formal, informal, business, anything. They were one of my favorite vendors to work with throughout the entire planning process. Al was just incredibly helpful and patient as we planned our menu, letting us taste many, many different items at several different visits and suggesting things we'd forgotten or never considered but definitely wanted. Al was totally responsive to all our questions and very, very accommodating to our schedules, needs, budgets, tastes, helping plan out those small little logistics to the events that you just can't anticipate, just everything you could think of. PNW Catering definitely went above and beyond even my highest expectations. Chef Matt did an beautiful job with the food for both our events. Absolutely delicious. Tons of compliments from lots of fancy foodie guest. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented (much better than I'd seen at most other caterers during tastings), fresh (they even grilled marinated chicken and steak right on site at the wedding), and tasty. Servers was super nice, on top of everyone's drinks and dishes, but not pushy. Very very friendly. I liked these guys and gals so much it was just like they were guests at the wedding (just working and doing a bang up job at it).


Long story short, these guys are the best. 5 stars. 10 outta 10. A+. Matt and Al are awesome dudes and will take care of everything.


Use these guys and you won't be disappointed.

PNW Catering was one of many caterers we met with, but the only catering we needed to taste. Their food was fresh, tasteful and everything we wanted. Looking back on our wedding day, they did everything right. They created the exact place settings I envisioned, they set aside appetizers for my husband and I to eat during the cocktail hour, always made sure my drink was full and saved us "to-go" boxes for a late night snack and dessert after we left the reception. I don't have a single quip about our experience with them. Catering is one of the biggest wedding factors and they made everything seamless.
