Catering by Laurie was amazing! From the tastings of the items down to the delivery and set up, it was all fantastic! The quality and flavor of food was soo good. My husband and I went with a selection of 7 different appetizers for the wedding instead of a plated dinner and I loved that we chose that option and so did our guests. THANK YOU!!

I thought I had the catering for my wedding celebration nailed down. Then I didn't. I contacted more than 25 caterers. They were all booked.

Laurie was the only one with imagination and experience to see a way to solve my problem.

Great food! Great service! Great people!

I'm sure you and your guests will be as pleased as I am.

The quality of food was outstanding and the presentation lovely! Most importantly, Molly and her daughter, Samantha, were warm and gracious with our guests. Molly observed that my husband hadn't had time to eat as we was connectiing with guests, so she made him a plate of food and gently sat him down at a table. They cleaned up beautifully and were sensitive to timing. So many guests asked about your catering service and I'm certain they will be calling!

Laurie and her staff are amazing! The food is fantastic and the variety is perfect for weddings (and the meatballs are to die for, seriously all of my guests loved them!) Laurie was incredibly easy to work with and to contact. She helped my husband and I create a diverse menu, even adding in some breadsticks to our meat and veggie heavy menu. And, wow, her staff is fantastic! The two servers/bartenders at my wedding were so sweet and friendly! I'd recommend Catering by Laurie to anyone.

The following is directly from the e-mail we sent Laurie after our daughter's wedding reception:

Well, we have recovered from our celebration and were planning to check in with you tonight. Molly and her crew provided extraordinary service in all aspects. They arrived in plenty of time to set up and went right to it after checking in with us and going over the plan. The tables looked sensational when the food was laid out, and every item tasted better than any of our guests expected. Rave reviews all night long, and after. You and your high standards were well represented by the sight, aroma, and taste of our buffet, and all of your staff throughout the evening.

Many guests mentioned how pleasantly and politely your workers behaved when serving and clearing. Molly even assisted the bride and groom with advice for the ceremonial cake cutting - much appreciated - and prepared a take away dinner sampler for them. The venue kitchen appeared to be left cleaner than found. And our plentiful, delicious left-overs were portioned and chilled for us to take away at the end of the night. We actually snacked a bit when we got home!

Laurie, there are not enough superlatives to express our overall experience with you, your staff and their service, and, of course, the food.

Best regards to you, and wishes for continued success,

Joann and Ernie Pech

As a follow up, many of our guests have commented that this was the best "wedding food" that they had ever had. Laurie also added a new menu item at the request of our now son-in-law. Her hot wings were a hit. They were a bit spicy for wanna be wing eaters, but a delicious medium heat for experienced wing aficionados.

Laurie and her staff were so amazing. The quality of food and the cost alone were no brainers. The buffet was decorated beautifully and the staff did such a great job of being on time and helpful. The cake cutting and serving went so smoothly, bartending was included and done really well, and they even bussed the tables so guests didnt have to. All of our left over food was packaged up for us to take with us and we even got a platter made up for us to take to the hotel. Laurie helped us come up with the perfect menu that would meet all our guests needs. I couldnt say enough positive things about laurie and her staff and would highly recommend their seevices!

Thank you,

I can't recommend Catering by Laurie highly enough! Her warmth, professionalism, and the quality of her food and staff were incredible. When we contacted her, she returned our calls or emails immediately. Even when we were difficult to reach, Laurie was always gracious and patient with us. She was well-prepared for our tasting, with a variety of options for us to try. She asked us about what type of wedding we were having, the dietary needs of our guests, and was more than willing to work within our (limited) budget. We had vegetarian and gluten-sensitive guests, so she recommended a spread that included something for everyone. She was flexible in working out a payment plan with us in the months leading up to the wedding. On our wedding day, everything was displayed beautifully. She had promised that in the hustle and bustle of our big day, her staff would make sure that we ate first. She kept her promise. My wife has a disability that affects her mobility, and Laurie's staff went out of their way to make sure she did not have to do unnecessary walking. They asked us if we'd prefer for them to make us plates (rather than have my wife make the trek over to the buffet table with her walker), and we were grateful for their sensitivity to that need. Throughout the evening, they checked in with us, asking if we had enough to eat, or if we needed anything. As the evening wound down, they gave us a giant "take home" serving of delicious food to take back to our hotel for later, complete with a healthy portion of everything we'd offered our guests. The chocolate covered strawberries were also a beautiful touch. She really thought of everything.

I met with Laurie for the first time back in January at the Portland Bridal Show. I was hesitant at first because I was afraid my budget was too low for her to work with...I was so mistaken! Laurie did everything possible to be flexible with her services to meet my desired budget...

We met with her early on in the year for a sampling of her food which was absolutely delicious. She invited my fiance at the time and me over to her home where we were greeted with a cute sampling of all of her best dishes. We went over all of the costs and what all was included in her package prices. She was very straightforward with everything and didn't leave anything hidden from us. We put our deposit down for her services and everything else was flawless!

Laurie was great about staying in contact over the months and checking in with me to make sure everything was on track and going well. She was very thorough and prompt with our email discussions.

Our wedding day went without a hitch...we had four of her staff members serve at our wedding. They were all a pleasure to work with! They showed up on time, prepared all of the food beautifully, poured our toast for 150 ish people, cut the cake, and also did clean up for us!

After the reception was over I was surprised to find all of our leftovers wrapped up and waiting for us to take home as well as a to-go plate for my husband and I to take to our hotel room!

I am so very happy that I chose Catering By Laurie for my wedding day. I would not hesitate to recommend her business to my family and friends!

It eased my mind to know that all the servers knew their job and handled everything so well. Laurie was so great to work with and always responded quickly with my many questions. The staff on site were easy to work with and kept everything moving smoothlty. Angela, our head server, was a joy. Thank you, Laurie, for helping our day to turn out so wonderfully!

Everyone at Catering by Laurie did a fabulous job. Laurie was always available to answer all my crazy questions and changed the menu for me over and over until I found the perfect combination. We did heavy appetizers for dinner and that seemed to please everyone at the wedding! And the best part, Laurie is SO affordable and the food is AMAZING!!

We had interviewed/sampled quite a few caters before deciding on Laurie. She had by far the best value and was one of the best tasting caterers. When we went to the first meeting she was so welcoming and easy going. We were impressed with her multi-tasking during the meeting, she was prepping for a few weddings she had for the next day. She had the most variety of food for our tasting that we experience d with any of the other caters. I REALLY appreciated her all inclusive per person pricing. So many other caters tack in extra per person costs (linens,silverware,appetizers,etc) Laurie had it all included which made it SO much easier to figure out with our budget. After we booked Laurie she was understanding and flexible with a payment plan. Through the whole process she made it very known that she was there for us and wanted to help us out in anyway, she made us feel like we were her only clients and she also was quick to reply with my emails. During our last finalized meeting with our head server Angie, both were very helpful at offering their opinions on menu changes and what would work. After some questions I had about the final number vs the price she was quick to explain the pricing so I understood and made sense. During the big day, everything turned out great! The food was fantastic and everybody enjoyed it. The shrimp and top sirloin were a big hit. Angela kept my coordinator in the loop with updates on how things were going behind the scenes every half hour without being asked to. All the servers were so helpful and friendly, even one of them helped me bustle my dress when I needed help! I loved that they put together a Bride & Groom to go plate to have at the end of the night with two slices of our cake; it was a life saver when we got back to the hotel! I would recommend anybody to Laurie for their catering needs with her price & value plus the great customer service she cannot be beat! If I ever need catering again I will definitely be calling Laurie!

During our last finalized meeting with our head server Angie, both were very helpful at offering their opinions on menu changes and what would work. After some questions I had about the final number vs the price she was quick to explain the pricing so I understood and made sense. During the big day, everything turned out great! The food was fantastic and everybody enjoyed it. The shrimp and top sirloin were a big hit. Angela kept my coordinator in the loop with updates on how things were going behind the scenes every half hour without being asked to. All the servers were so helpful and friendly, even one of them helped me bustle my dress when I needed help! I loved that they put together a Bride & Groom to go plate to have at the end of the night with two slices of our cake; it was a life saver when we got back to the hotel! I would recommend anybody to Laurie for their catering needs with her price & value plus the great customer service she cannot be beat! If I ever need catering again I will definitely be calling Laurie! Read less

I cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about Catering by Laurie and the FANTASTIC job they did at a recent wedding I attended (and helped fund!) The food was fresh, served on time and with a nice presentation. Very appealing! There were at least a dozen people who came to me and complimented Catering by Laurie on their food and service. The pork sliders were to die for and I could not get enough of those meatballs! It was a hot, sunny day and since I was a DD that evening, I was very pleased having the ice-cold water and non-alcoholic punch at my fingertips. Thanks again for your hard work, and I would DEFINITELY recommend you to anyone who needs an event catered.

Laurie was such a saint from the start. She had us over to her house to try some of the food and we fell in love! My wife is a vegetarian and she made sure that every dish (minus the chicken skewers) was vegetarian and delicious. We had an appetizer style dinner with ~10 items on it and it was unbelievably good!!

The whole process from start to finish was so easy and Laurie and her staff were so flexible and willing to adapt to our needs, even during the wedding day. I can't tell you how nice it was to not have to worry about the food on the day of our marriage!

Laurie sent us three servers, including a bartender for our event!! The level of care and precision with which they worked our wedding was amazing. We kept changing things up here and there and they always had a smile.

I can't even begin to tell you how many people came up to us and said how good the food was! People who were carnivores were eating vegetarian meatballs as fast as they could and the salmon was absolutely delicious. The fruit pinwheel stole the show and was such a beautiful centerpiece to the whole spread. As if the food wasn't enough by itself, the attitude and friendliness of Laurie's staff put our experience over the top.

We had high hopes and expectations for the food and I can honestly say Laurie exceeded every one and going with her was hands down the best choice we could have made. I would gladly, happily, recommend Laurie to anyone and everyone who needs catering! Thank you so much for making our beautiful day that much better!

Laurie was wonderful to work with. She is great at communicating by phone or email.
She invited us to her home (she has commercial kitchen and operates from her home), for our tasting. She has a vast menu, which is tasty and all beautifully done.
She not only has a great menu, but her service is all inclusive. She provides the caterers, bartenders, cake service, linens, glasses and cutlery for a very fair and reasonable price. There is no nickle and diming you. Everything is so upfront.
She is very organized and her process is seamless. Her caterers and servers were very familiar with the venue and helped direct the flow of things and were pleasant to work with.
I was also pleasently surprised when they showed up with vases of flowers, in my colors, to place around.
Great experience. Thank you Laurie!

If you are thinking about a caterer for your wedding Laurie is excellent. Both my daughers got married in the same year and this was the second wedding Laurie catered. The wedding was held at the NW Children's Theatre ballroom on Everett street in Portland. There is no kitchen and had a very small bar area. Lauries staff was on time, they are friendly and helpful, work very hard, had everything ready, a great display of food. They clean up and help you to the very end. I had many many compliments on the food, and service. I was so thankful for Laurie and her staff because they were the rock of this wedding. Laurie is always on top of things and she gets eveyone orgainized. I had many other problems with this wedding, but not with the catering. Thank you Laurie for the wonderful service from you and your staff and helping me stay within my budget. When there is good food and drinks your guests will be very happy. I highly recommend Catering by Laurie!!

I would highly recommend Catering by Laurie to cater any event. I first got to try Laurie’s food at my workplace. She catered dinners for the accountants and partners at my firm. The food is really good, and the portion sizes filled everyone up with leftovers. She has been coming to my office during tax season for many years. So when both my daughters got engaged on the same day and both were planning weddings, I thought of Laure.
I first contacted Laure for my oldest daughter who is getting married this June 2012. Laurie was very professional and really does a great job explaining the food, and her services. She makes you a sample tray to try so you can get an idea of what you want to serve at the wedding. It was fun to taste the food and pick what you want her to serve at the wedding. We told her our budget and picked the entries, services etc. in our price range. This was wonderful!! Laurie is very professional and really makes sure every detail is covered.
So when my youngest daughter told me she was getting married in January 2012 with a big wedding of over 200 people, I knew Laurie could work with our budget. The wedding reception was beautiful and the food was displayed in a gorgeous way. Somehow I thought we could get family to serve at the wedding, but Laurie insisted that we needed her staff. She was right!! We could never have done a wedding with over 200 people without her staff. The staff members that came to work at the wedding made the reception go off without any problems. Both women knew exactly what to tell our family members so they could help serve. They worked to keep the buffet, desert tables, and punch table looking great all night. The fruit porcupine made the table look beautiful and was a hit along with the meatballs and the cupcakes. It was a beautiful reception and a great night. It could not have gone better. Laurie’s staff is very positive, professional and hard working. They cleaned everything up, packaged up all the leftovers and made our wedding reception something family and friends are still talking about. They even made a little package of food for the bride and groom to take with them. I got so many complements on how good the food tasted and the beautiful way it was displayed.
We are all looking forward to have Laurie fully catering my oldest daughter’s wedding in June 2012. I have full confidence that everything will be done. I am so thankful for Laurie, her husband, and her staff. I would highly recommend her Catering by Laurie.

We picked Catering by Laurie during the first meeting. She was very pleasant, professional and totally understood my direction. The meatballs and tortellini was a big hit, not to mention her fruit porcupine! The set up and take down was done in a quickness, and the bar kept the drinks flowing. With that being said, the only negative thing I have to say is I had many complaints from guest regarding a older bartender who wasn't quite entertained by those who had a few cocktails. Regardless of that if I could go back and do it all over again I would still stick with my vendors!

My husband and I chose Laurie to cater our wedding on October 5th 2013. After meeting with several caterers, Laurie was our hands down choice to cater our wedding. Laurie’s food was delicious! The quality of the food was exactly what we expected after our fabulous taster. The quantity of the food was beyond what we could expect we had more than enough food to feed all of our guests with enough left over to feed friends and family for several days after. Laurie was easy to work with, responded to all questions that I had within 24 hours. The servers that Laurie provided for our wedding were incredibly kind and attentive. I had nothing to worry about with Laurie catering our wedding. I would highly recommend Laurie to anybody.

She invited us into her home, where she let us sample all her menu options. Laurie then proceeded to plan and coordinate our event! She suggested the Ainsworth and Gardens House, which turned out to be a beautiful location! We had 70 + guests and the entire event went off with out a hitch! The food, service and everything was spectacular! We would recommend Laurie and her staff to anyone!

Her staff did a wonderful job serving up the food keeping everything hot and tidy at the reception. I also had them as bartenders for my event and they did a great job. Everything went so smoothly, and btw when you go for a trial tasting she has the cutest house! -Valerie

No one was waiting for drinks or more food or wanting for anything really. The food tasted great and while we brought in our own cake, beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks all were served with total professionalism. We are grateful to them all for a job well done. Very much worth the money paid.

Laurie's menu of options are vast and really helpful in selecting what to serve guests, however it is difficult to know what the food will be like in advance and I had mixed feelings about the outcome (my rehearsal dinner food cost ~the same but was plated and FABULOUS in comparison). Standouts include: the dessert buffet was amazing, the bartenders (Doc) and details to personalize the wedding were great, the flow of delivery/clearing for dancing/pack-up of leftovers for bride & groom was effortless, and communication via e-mail was very responsive. Downsides: verbal communication was sometimes not heard, the chicken was extremely dry, tastings in advance are limited.

Standouts include: the dessert buffet was amazing, the bartenders (Doc) and details to personalize the wedding were great, the flow of delivery/clearing for dancing/pack-up of leftovers for bride & groom was effortless, and communication via e-mail was very responsive. Downsides: verbal communication was sometimes not heard, the chicken was extremely dry, tastings in advance are limited. Read less

Co$t didn't add up after we reduced the # of guests. The average price went up almost $4.00 per person! The food was great, although, they ran out of punch within an hour of the reception starting...? The serving staff was very kind, but made quite the mess in serving our cake... and left the mess to be cleaned up by the bridal party. Would give a B-

Very small wedding party and we ran out of many of the food items. When we consulted with our caterer we were told our guests overate, which is quite funny considering no one had seconds because of our short timeline at our venue. Our menu items were not as described in the contract. Shortcuts were taken by this caterer at every turn. We ordered marinated shrimp with lime and cilantro and were given plain store bought shrimp undressed with anything with cocktail dipping sauce. Not what we ordered. Don't order chicken from this caterer either it is horribly dry. Beware and take photos of everything as we did. Truly an embarrassing experience for our guests. Recommend you do a tasting of everything written in your contract and not her standard sampling that is the same for everyone.

Cheese platter – I was shocked to see that she used the “Mini Baybel” cheese, she simply removed the wax rind, cut in half stabbed a toothpick in it and there you have it.
Marinated Asparagus – The asparagus was not cleaned properly, the leaves down the stalks were left and the tough ends were not broken off. Some of it was extremely tough.

Fruit Porcupine – The pineapple was not cored, it did have its outer rind removed but the tough core was left. The honeydew was hard and not near ripe enough and the strawberries still had their core and leaves, which were falling off and getting all over the other fruit skewers.

Chicken Skewers - I don’t know how these were cooked, but they looked boiled to me. They were almost white in color, had no seasoning whatsoever and were served that way. There was a small bowl of sauce placed in front of the skewers (with the bottle out on the table) however the sauce bowl was not visible and it was missed by most people. These were tasteless and some were not cooked all the way through. When you order chicken skewers one would think they would be cooked in the sauce, not boiled and shoved on a skewer with no seasoning. This was by far the biggest disappointment.

BBQ Meatballs – These seemed like frozen meatballs with bottled bbq sauce thrown on them. They were all uniform in size and again lacked flavor.

BBQ Pork Sliders – This was served cold (whether or not there was a heat source under it, they were cold) and the meat was tasteless and tough.

Absolutely NOTHING was labeled, nobody had any idea what they were eating, or what the ingredients were.

For the amount of money she charged for these items, the presentation, flavor and overall appearance was dismal. I am so disappointed in the entire food service. I can’t being to understand why the simple little details were over looked, and to many of them to count.

I have been in contact with Laurie for five months at this point to coordinate catering services for my wedding reception. I wanted to schedule a tasting for specific menu items, and put down our deposit. Laurie's busy schedule prevented her from being able to accommodate the specialized tasting during the busy summer months, but she agreed that she would tentatively put me on the calendar for my wedding date until her schedule calmed down some, and that she would contact if she needed more of a commitment from me before that time.

After months of me checking in to try to find a convenient time for a specialized menu sampling, Laurie E-Mailed saying that she was not making the dishes we were wanting anytime soon, but that we could pay for the tasting to schedule it sooner. I responded back saying that sounded great, and asked what she would charge. A week goes by with no response back from Laurie, so I pinged her again to ensure that she had received my message. She responded back saying that she had booked another event for my reception date, and 'wished me the best of luck'. When I responded back voicing my shock and frustration at her booking another event on the day she had assured me would be tentatively held after MONTHS of E-Mails, and mentioned that I would be providing my feedback to other brides looking for catering services, she made zero apologies and actually went so far as to blame me for not being content with her 'sample tasting' that offered absolutely nothing that was on my desired menu, along with telling me that if I felt my complaints against her services 'would make my wedding plans go better, that is sad start to a marriage'. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, AS WELL AS PERSONALLY INSULTING.

Laurie's behavior is inconsiderate, her responsiveness is lacking, her utter inflexibility on offering samples is ludicrous considering the amount of money involved, and her customer service is abysmal. I would not recommend Laurie to anyone, EVER.
