Twelve Baskets went above and beyond to help me cater my best friend's baby shower this past January. Normally, I wouldn't have hired a caterer for a baby shower but this baby is SO loved that people came from near and far to celebrate (ie it was a large group). Once I realized there would be no way I could create what I had envisioned on my own, I reached out to Twelve Baskets to see if they could cater the event. Vita quickly responded to my request and was SO helpful. After I explained that this was a baby shower and in my (mom's) home, we didn't think it was necessary to have a staffed catering set-up, and she helped me create a menu that could be delivered, set-up, and ready to go. Vita was super responsive to all my questions and requests (especially as I was planning the event from across the country) and even helped make sure we had food for all the various allergies/restrictions of guests. She was realistic about how much food she thought we would need and helped me think through creating a thoughtful and diverse menu. On the day of the event, when we were scrambling to get everything set up, the Twelve Baskets staff who delivered the food (I do not remember his name - this is what happens when you write reviews two months after the fact) was not only right on time, but helped set-up everything beautifully and even helped us light candles as the first guests arrived. To top it off, all of the food was amazing. People were very into the spring rolls and the taro chips were out of control good. Everything was so elegantly presented and we had even the most discerning guests compliment us on the food. My experience with Twelve Baskets was more than I could have hoped for. Sadly, I live on the East coast so there aren't a lot of opportunities for me to hire a caterer from Seattle but if there was, it would be Twelve Baskets always.

I used Twelve Baskets Catering for my 40th Birthday party. They were extremely easy to work with, and the quality of the food was excellent. They arrived promptly and worked around guests quickly and efficiently while setting up. I would hire them again for sure!
Thank you so much, Rebecca! We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and are so pleased to hear about your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you and your guests again in the future! Happy Birthday!

We do not have enough words to thank Twelve Baskets for such an amazing experience for our wedding. We were in constant contact with their team on food choices, quantities selected, and process questions, and the AMAZING team (mainly Vita!) was super responsive! Vita was so patient with us as we updated everything and we are so grateful for her awesome guidance.   We booked Twelve Baskets because they were on the preferred vendor list for our venue and they by far had the absolute best tasting food and their plating was absolutely beautiful. We did tasting tests with four different catering companies prior, and within five minutes of being at Twelve Baskets we knew right away that they were the perfect choice. We decided early on that our food budget was very important to us, and we wanted to make sure that as the largest chunk of our budget we went with a location that could deliver our vision for our Alice in Wonderland themed reception. Vita was also instrumental in helping our theme come to life as she helped us order all of our dishes and linens from CORT Party Rentals. Everything was absolutely stunning, especially our wedding party's table!!! Our wedding day food was excellent and every single guest was very impressed, which was something we were hoping for as many traveled from the other coast to be here. Our menu consisted of a lot of PNW favorites, including the following: -Cedar plank salmon -Kalbi flank steak -Corn elotes -Strawberry salad -Thai fresh rolls (vegan and also shrimp) -Crab cakes -Grilled potatoes It was also very important for our guests to have vegan and gluten free options, and Twelve Baskets was very accommodating to this. The plating was amazing, and everyone was raving about the food all night long. The servers were excellent, and the bartenders attended to everyone promptly. The bartenders especially timed our cocktail hour perfectly with the amount of liquor we had ordered before beginning wine and beer service as well. The servers were also very prompt about moving all of the chairs from the wedding space to the reception area. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding a dream come true Vita & team!

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!
