This is my first ever Yelp review. As far as online reviewing goes, I find it to be mainly a passive aggressive waste of time. If I have an issue with a business, I let them know in the moment in a constructive way; and inversely if I want to praise an establishment, I also prefer to do it in the moment. But there are not enough hours in the day to tell everyone about how great the people at Twelve Baskets are! As a disclaimer, I am the former Operations Manager for 12B (as we called it informally) so take that with a grain of salt, please. But they also catered my wedding as well and it was for a lack of a better word, magical. Chef Tim is an extremely accomplished chef and so even-tempered that he was often seen as the eye of the storm even in the most stressful of situations. The sales team, Vita and Desi were not just consummate professionals but both had the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met in a professional sales setting. The event leads, especially Scott and Jerry, were always at the very top of their game and frankly great people to begin with. And finally, my praise goes out to the entire Bagge family most notably John and Jamie who run the company. I didn't always see eye to eye every day with the other members of leadership at Twelve Baskets (like all situations it was full of ups and downs and to not mention that would only make the integrity if my review suspect) but there wasn't a single moment where they would not stop the world to listen to my concerns. Thank you Twelve Baskets for not only a peerless execution on my wedding day but also, joining my wife and I on the dance floor celebrate life. Miss you all and love you.
Oh my goodness! The entire team at Twelve Baskets is wonderful. I have been working with them for years for high school graduations and events at church. When my daughter got engaged, the owner, John Bagge was the first vendor I called. John helped us find a venue and Event Specialist Vita Popach did the rest. She is always a delight to work with and was exceptionally prompt is answering all my questions, super friendly and very helpful. We put together a delicious menu at a fair price, definitely worth every penny. They worked with me on every aspect of the event, from providing beautiful vintage table decor to giving me choices about which napkin fold we preferred. Our wedding day site leader, Scott, was out-of-this-world great. We had the wedding at Dairyland in Snohomish, ceremony and dinner in the same space so we had a quick reset to do after the ceremony. Scott and his team helped do all that quickly while also serving our guests wonderful appetizers. He took care of everything so easily, it made my day as mother of the bride and wedding planner stress free. Our wedding party had their own server so they did not miss out on food while taking pictures after the ceremony. The dinner buffet, dessert station and drinks were so beautiful, worked perfectly with the vision we had for the day. The two comments I heard most from our guests were 1) the caterers are so attentive and friendly, and 2) the food is delicious. Best review of all came from the bride and groom. I asked them if their wedding day was everything they wanted- their response- better than they could ever have imagined. Thank you 12 Baskets for making our daughter's wedding day so special and worry free. Simply the best!!

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!
