A Personal Note from Christie Katona


A wedding is a once in a lifetime event and I am passionate about my work. I have an incredible amount of knowledge about the wedding industry. My attitude of personal professional service sets me apart from the crowd. I like to become friends with my brides and treat them how I would like my daughter to be treated if I had one. My years of expertise can bring a calm presence and reassurance to your frazzled nerves.

Realizing that every event and bride is different, I use a personalized approach with insight, energy, skill and attention to details. Many brides have trusted me with one of the most important days of their lives and have given me glowing reports on how seamless and perfect I made their special day. We provide service and care to help create memories that last a lifetime!

Best wishes for your special event! Read less

Christie and her husband are amazing. Very responsive and no hassel. We called 12 vendors and she was the quickest to respond the best price and the most tasty. We had to go track other vendors down, it was frustrating. Christie always responded fast and was very considerate to our needs and making things work for us. Her food is to die for!!! Book this caterer!!!

We held our wedding reception at the Pioneer Park Pavilion on January 28th, 2017 and we hired Christie's Catering after we attended a tasting at their Renton location. We met with two other caterers after Christie's but we chose Christie's because we loved the food and her personality. My mom and I went back and forth over the contract a bit due to a misunderstanding but Christie was so patient with us and super professional. We really appreciated her help in the early stages- and her communication with us about everything. We worked everything out so smoothly and we knew we chose the right place. She recommended a wedding coordinator to us whom we hired- and she worked out perfectly. Christie communicated with me about what I wanted- she asked me about my vision- and shared with me her vision and ideas and we really stuck a harmony. I was so pleased at the outcome and have heard such positive feedback from all of our guests about the food, the display, the service and general vibe of the event. The fruit and cheese centerpiece was out of this world GORGEOUS. The staff of Christie's Catering all deserve a big pat on the back. I would recommend them whole-heartedly time and time again.

Christie’s Catering was the BEST choice we could have made for our wedding catering! Not only is Christie a fun, firecracker – but the food they delivered was AMAZING! We had Steak, Chicken, salad, hors d’oeuvres, fruit, beverages provided – and I’m not joking people said this was the best wedding food they have ever had, and I would agree, it was DELISH! Not just for “wedding food,” but for any food standards -it was great! We got to go and sample at a tasting in her kitchen in Renton, she gave us endless options, and always great communication. Their prices area great AND their service included plates, cups, punch, and they also had licensed bartenders, so we didn’t have to find additional vendors for that. They showed up on time, did what they came to do, AND MORE. When my decorator flaked, their whole team jumped in on anything that needed to be done, and trust me they had no obligations to help with our décor. In addition, they packed up any extra food and we got to have it before our honeymoon. The food and service were beyond and I would 100% use them again to cater an event and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. The BEST!

Christie is an amazing chef! She served us a 5 course meal as a tasting which was phenomenal! And at our wedding we had so many guests saying how great the food was. We chose the salmon and steak - and the salmon was SO moist, and the seasoning on the steak was delicious. Christie is such a sweetheart and focuses on making your day special! And her pricing is amazingly low for the Seattle area! The only downside is her accounting skills - there was some confusion over how much we owed, but we were able to clear it all up.

Christie and her team did a great job for me, and I got lots of compliments on how good the food was. Christie is such a sweet lady. I appreciated the to-go bag of left overs for the bride and groom, since our big day was so busy we didn’t even get a chance to try all of the food.

Christie is the most amazing, sincere, gifted person. If you are looking for a catering company to go with, look no further and just give Christie a call.
The first catering company we were going to go with had fell through (very last minute I might add!) I was so stressed and worried. I found Christie's catering company and decided to give her a call. After one phone call with speaking with Christie, such a lovely lady, I was automatically set at ease. I felt so bad it being so last minute. She was SO kind and wonderful. She told me not to worry about a thing and she was right, I didn't have to! They took care of everything. She worked with me to find the perfect menu. On our wedding day Christie came that morning and introduced her staff to us. Her staff was so great. They were kind and so caring about our guests. Just like Christie! Truly people you just enjoy being around! I just adore her and would recommend her to anyone. If you want the best food & best catering staff/bartender at your wedding Christie's Catering is the way to go. -Patrick & Catrina

We learned about Christie\'s Catering through word of mouth. Christie\'s philosophy centers around food that is visually appealing and tastes great. She really delivered on our wedding day and we had a gorgeous spread and we barely had to lift a finger. Early in the process, we developed the menu ourselves but Christie helped us refine it with great suggestions. In terms of service, she was top notch, she met with us several times before the wedding to check in, and she provides everything from plates to linens to a professional bartender. Christie is very accessible by email and was always responsive to our questions before and after our wedding. If you have a simple cake, she can decorate it and make it beautiful with some extra flowers. The staff she provided were very friendly and professional. She cares about your day and she wants it to go well. Christie and her catering company were worth every penny and everyone loved the food. Highly recommended.

Christie and her crew did a wonderful job at my daughter's wedding. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. All of the staff were great to work with, the chef and her staff were fantastic! We had asked for vegetarian and vegan dishes and Christie was happy to oblige. I would highly recommend Christie's catering to anyone having a wedding or special event

We used Christie's Catering for our wedding reception and were unimpressed with the food and angry with the rude and poor service from her staff.

Half the food was pretty good, a quarter was so so, and a quarter was comically bad. The presentation on her specialty "pecan chicken" was so bad that many of our guests were making jokes about it even though it was one of the better tasting things.

The bar tenders were extremely rude to our guests. The kitchen staff put the food away before everyone was done eating and refused to set it back out.

And she charges us an extra $300 above her quote for staff that we did not catch until we had already paid it.

I would not recommend Christie's Catering.

Christie's Catering responded with the following comments:

In 35 years of catering weddings, this was one that you could never have imagined would go so upside down! Patrick and Liz were a couple in their 30's, college educated from the midwest. I met with them at the Seattle Parks Dept venue at Stan Sayers Beach on Lake Washington. We did a fantastic and delicious menu including pecan chicken, jambalaya, fried alligator and oysters Rockefeller among the usual breads, fresh fruits and cheeses. The lady who was managing the facility said that after her experience with these clients, she would never work at the venue again. There was a lot of heavy drinking from the get go. As the evening continued to go on, we felt that some of the guests were probably using drugs of some sort. The transformer in the neighborhood blew and put the entire venue into darkness. All hell broke loose. A guest poured a pitcher of beer on my bartender' head, the guests were grabbing bottles of alcohol from behind the bar and throwing candles and wax on the dance floor. One person threw food at my chef. The people were stomping on the second floor of the building worrying us that the boats hung below on the ceiling would fall down. Our equipment got stuck in the elevator and we had to come back the next day and get things. We should have called the police. The lady managing the facility was so scared she locked herself in her office. The men got a tire iron and tried to break the door down. The final interesting thing was the groom took off all his clothes and proceeded to make out with someone not his new wife. What can I say????? To wait two years to write a review considering what happened is uncalled for. CM
