We are so glad we chose Twelve Baskets for our wedding! Vita and team were always extremely quick to respond to all our questions, helpful in their recommendations, and worked out a tasting menu for our moms (answering their hundreds of questions) when we couldn't attend ourselves. Everyone I spoke to was incredibly accommodating and so friendly  - Honestly, there isn't one person we ever spoke to - phone, at their catering site, or at our venue - who didn't feel like a real friend doing their absolute best to help us create the perfect day!  There was something like 8 plus events they catered the same day as ours, but you would never know it. It seemed like everyone was working just on our wedding day. We requested 4 different appetizers: alaskan scampi, cilantro prawns, brie/poached pear cups and pork tenderloin crostini - all delicious. Bonus, they made sure we got to taste all of them since we missed our cocktail hour. Our Buffet consisted of cedar wrapped salmon (Wild, not farm raised!) and peppered beef tenders. Both were cooked to perfection. They actually brought the main course shortly before service to ensure it was fresh cooked and still warm rather than leaving it under heating laps during their set up... We wanted our guests to remember the catering and they definitely will! An extra special perk, and unbeknownst to us, they packed away a full dinner, bottled water, and dessert for two that was presented to us after we arrived at our hotel at the end of the night (crucial) along with a special treat. I don't want to ruin the surprise, but I'll keep it as a momento forever! Absolutely no regrets using Twelve Baskets and I would recommend for any occasion!!
I was truly SO impressed by the service, quality, and professionalism of Twelve Baskets Catering. We wanted to do something a little different and have a brunch wedding, and Twelve Baskets really helped our dreams come to life with delicious food and a truly beautiful arrangement. Vita, my email contact, was always SO responsive! She got back to me quickly, helped me think about things I'd never even considered, and when I had requests she found a way to make them happen! They were very flexible, too! They allowed us to provide our own alcohol to save a bit of money, and even let us come by to drop off the alcohol and juice a couple days before the wedding to store, chill, and transport everything together. We did look at slightly less expensive catering options, but I am so glad that we chose to go with a truly professional service who really have their act together. On the wedding day, their servers came and found my new groom and I to make sure we had everything we needed and that our glasses were always full, and they even wrapped up to-go boxes for us to enjoy in our honeymoon suite (that late night slice of cake was heaven!). Thank you so much to everyone at Twelve Baskets for making our day such a success!

About Twelve Baskets Catering

John Bagge grew up on a grain farm in Minnesota until his late teens when his family moved to Seattle. His early roots in gardening and farming made a tremendous impact on his love of food and hospitality. When he started Twelve Baskets as a restaurant back in 1976, he wouldn't have thought it would grow and become so successful. The company began catering in 1978 and the rest is history! We've catered thousands of events over the years and our love of the industry only grows stronger. Adding flavor to philosophy, our team contributes decades of culinary expertise to Twelve Baskets Catering. Whether you need an elegant dinner for 20 to 30, an affordable hor d'oeuvres buffet wedding reception for 350, an outdoor company picnic, or a casual lunch for your corporate meeting, Twelve Baskets Catering is here for you. We take great pride in our work and want your event to be as perfect as you do!
