Please consider Alexa's Catering, the service was wonderful, the food delicious, even after the "great fire" in Bothell. My wedding was the next day. The staff was very friendly too, great local community business.

We have not had our wedding yet, but I wanted to share our pleasure with this vendor regarding the process. I gave 4/5 simply because it take quite a while to hear back from them when I have questions. However, I am chalking this up to the fact that our wedding isn't for another 8 months and more immediate weddings will take precedence. I love how willing they are to show us different colors, pictures and ideas they have done at the venue we will be using. That helps us decide on a lot of other things. They have a lovely set up at their open house, which I strongly recommend you go to if you are thinking about booking their services. The food is delicious, the restaurant is adorable (we fully intend to make that a place we go now:)) and Gretchen is hugely helpful.

Alexa's was such a wonderful choice of food for my wedding! I saw them first at the Snohomish Wedding Tour and was in love with their Fruit and Vegetable landscape. My field and passion is healthy food and I was so impressed with the presentation and freshness of the food. I went to their cafe not once, but three times to taste food for the wedding because it was so delicious. They worked so well discussing the day with my venue and my wedding planner that I had no qualms about how the day was going to go. Their staff and bartenders were so professional and dealt with my large Irish family wonderfully. They even helped my husband and I cut the cake when it was obvious we had no clue what we were doing! I am so thankful I live in Kenmore so I can visit them in Bothell and eat at the cafe whenever I feel like it. Thank you for being so fantastic!

We had a fairly good experience with Alexa's, with only a few small complaints. We wanted to get our menu settled early, so we booked over a year in advance and had our whole menu settled. They changed their catering menu setup and switched our account manager about 5 months before our wedding, so that meant we had to pick basically an entirely new menu and start from scratch working with someone else. That was frustrating, but the person the new person we worked with was pleasant and did a good job. Ultimately, I ended up being happy with the menu we chose, but the process could have gone a lot smoother.

On the day of the event, Alexa's did an excellent job of setting up and taking everything down in a timely manner, and the tables and buffet setup looked great. The food was absolutely wonderful!! We got so many compliments on how delicious the whole menu was. The bar ran out of soda very early on in the night, which was disappointing. We also ended up having 8 opened and unfinished bottles of red wine left over at the beginning of the night, which was upsetting because we had planned to return unopened bottles. If you do work with Alexa's, I would be sure to be clear about your expectations for the beverages/bar because that seemed to be the area where we had problems day-of. Overall, they serve a great product at a very reasonable price.

We hired Alexa's Catering for a home wedding with just under 100 guests, and they were outstanding overall. They managed the event so thoroughly we had nothing to worry about on the day of the event! And when they left our house, you couldn't tell they were even there because it was spotless. They set up and took down tables, chairs, linens and decorations. The food was excellent, and they worked hard with smiles on their faces the entire time! Will recommend them to anyone who is planning a wedding for special event requiring catering!

Alexa's was more than we hoped for! I met my husband across the street from Alexa's so they seemed perfect to host. Communication, handling, and the staff was very on top that day and we appreciate it so much! They host tastings which we attended - more of a catering feel than just visiting their restaurant. Big shout out to Alexa's, an all-round kind of restaurant. They are full of experience and made our day awesome!

Gretchen, Alexa and their entire staff were so amazing to work with! Gretchen listened to our every need to make our wedding food and experience unique. They came recommended from our venue and we are so happy with our choice. The food turned out amazing, especially the sliders! We even did late night snacks and drinks that they served on trays for us at the end of the evening. They were professional and friendly! Our guests keep complimenting us on how good the food was that night! Gretchen always responded to my questions promptly, did our tasting with us and even came to the venue to do a walk through of everything to make sure I felt comfortable with all the decisions and how the day should go. Cannot thank Gretchen, Alexa and their staff enough for the awesome job they did preparing for the wedding and day of!

Good service and responsiveness - started out absolutely amazing, but once wedding season was underway, it took a little longer to hear back and one little detail got missed on the wedding day (not a huge deal - was still amazing). Good value and my guests loved the food!

Alexa's was wonderful to work with. When I gave them a general idea of what we were looking for, they came back with a great proposal and then were very willing to work with us to customize. They were so professional and made sure we got exactly what we wanted (as opposed to some other caterers who tried to tell us what we wanted to fit better with what they wanted to do). The service was fantastic, everything looked beautiful and tasted even better, and the portions were more than generous! In fact the only downside is that we had way more food and leftovers than expected, but the staff boxed them up beautifully so that we were able to enjoy it all after. They set up and cleaned up perfectly and made our whole event run smoothly!

We hired Alexa's Cafe for our July Wedding. Although they were very helpful when we initially booked them for the event, things started to go down hill one week before our wedding: 1. Alexa's cafe charged us $200 more for equipment rentals above the quoted price. They stated the increase was because their equipment supplier increased their rates... and they were not obligated to honor the original price quote. 2. Alexa's cafe increased the amount of time they needed to set up for our event. They original quoted us 5 hours total. This changed to 6 hours one week before our wedding. No changes were made to the menu and the final guest count was 2 less then our original estimate. No explanation for the change was given. When we complained they were rude, and stated they would leave an hour early and not help with clean up. 3. We ordered and paid for a variety of non-alcoholic beverages (Soda, Lemonade, Coffee, Tea and Water). They only served Lemonade and Soda at our event. No refund or apology was offered. 4. They changed the setup for our event at the last minute. We asked for everything to be served as a buffet. Instead they broke out our food into 3 courses - appetizers, buffet and desert. This made no sense. Our event was very short and the tables were already set up for lunch. Plus the removed the appetizers before they were eaten, so we ended up with lots of left overs. Second, they placed the dessert out (cheese and crackers) after all food had been served. Because the food was located in another room, none of guests realized the cheese platter had been set up. Again we had a significant amount of left overs. 5. The steamed veggies were cold. Again when we complained they offered no apology. In summary - we paid $500 more then our contract quote, service was horrible and the food was cold. I definitely do not recommend Alexa's Cafe for catering.
