Hip & cool only take you so far in this business. The devil is in the details. And who really wants to deal with the devil? Can you just eyeball two hundred mini BLTs?

We are the original bean counters; literally counting beans... and forks, lemon drops, table cloths, Grilled Flank Steak with Chimichurri, bartenders, coat checks, and place cards.

In 2001, City Catering Company started with a desire to make interesting food that tasted good and was served with a simple clean style. Over the years our business has grown -- mainly (and thankfully) through word-of-mouth. Needing a larger kitchen, in 2011, we coverted a 6000 square foot old service garage into a kitchen and mid-sized event space.

We pair seasonal and fresh food with warm professional service and a sleek urban style. Named by Seattle Magazine as Seattle's Most Creative Caterer, we are chefs, style gurus, service geeks, and bean counters. Read less

City Catering catered my wedding, and they did an amazing job! Carol and her team were great to work with, and then really made my wedding an amazing event. The food is fabulous, their drinks are great, and they are very reasonably priced. The service they provide is also awesome! I would super recommend City Catering for any catering needs.

My wife and I worked with Megan and Shana of City Catering. We based our decision to use City Catering for our wedding on several factors. First, communicating with Shana and Megan was easy. They were prompt and always on-time, which surprisingly was not the case for all caterers when we were getting bids. The service and food at the tasting was excellent, allowed my mother (who lives locally) to join free of charge, and gave us the left overs. The allowed us to taste the entire menu we wanted and later on, changes we made to it, all free of charge. A few caterers we did tastings with charged if we wanted to taste our entire proposed menu or for any additional people beyond bride and groom, and did not give left overs. Its little things like that which stand out. Shana sat down with us during the tasting and got to know us and described everything we were tasting. After we decided to move forward with CC, we also started to work with Megan. She helped with all the day-of planning for place settings, flow, seating arrangements, etc- much more than just serving food and busing plates. The staff was very professional and always made sure my wife and I were taken care of. In the end, CC was not the cheapest of caterers, but worth every penny we paid. They worked with our budget and never pressured us to do more than what we could afford. I could not think more highly of Megan, Shana, and the CC staff. I would recommend them to anyone needing a caterer, especially for a wedding.

Since my husband is French we wanted to serve plated dinner of French cuisine for our dinner reception, we taste tested a few catering companies but only City Catering managed to execute it on par to our standard. To start with they have a large repertoire of dishes you can choose from, but they are also very accommodating and creative with our special requests, this includes creating a croquembouche especially for us (a French wedding dessert as a tower of profiteroles and caramel). Yes they are not the cheapest around but you get what you pay for. In fact the food were so amazing many of our French guests commented how delicious and memorable the entrees were. Everyone in City Catering (from account manager to server) were super professional, courteous and efficient. We really couldn't ask for a more kick ass team. Husband and I were looked after very well on the day and we are still over the moon thinking about how much everyone enjoyed the reception.

City Catering is absolutely amazing! I contacted them just over a year before my wedding and immediately knew they would be a perfect match. First off, unlike other caterers, City offered us a tasting that was not only free, but made us feel like royalty. My FH and I went to their gorgeous venue on Dexter and they proceeded to wine and dine us for over 2 hours. Our catering manager, Reyn, made us feel like friends, not customers. We tasted every single thing we planned to serve at the wedding, plus wine, plus multiple cocktails. We had so much food left over, but they wrapped it up for us and we continued eating it for 3 days!

Leading up to the event, we kept in contact with Reyn and planned the wedding both over the phone and in person. Reyn made two different trips to meet with me at the venue and to discuss logistics. He truly went above and beyond, and almost felt like a second wedding planner, rather than just a caterer.

On the day of the wedding, my FH and I were BLOWN AWAY by how amazing City Catering was! They assigned a super friendly staff member (Andrew!) to see to our every need. He never let our drinks or plates get anywhere near empty. All of the staff were ridiculously nice and attentive. They dressed professionally, and served food that was even BETTER than at the tasting. I loved that they were flexible and let us provide our own sodas & alcohol. Every one of our guests raved about the food and service! At the end of the night, City presented us with an adorable box (wrapped with a bow) containing a sharing portion of our dinner, including utensils and napkins. My husband and I made sure we ate at the wedding (apparently unlike most couples), so we were too full to eat it that night. Instead, we shared it a few days later and it instantly took us back to our magical day! :)

Food was excellent. Staff wonderful. Food was served hot and on time. Exactly what we ordered, and plenty left over. Used them for a prior wedding and liked them so much we used them again. They are very organized. Food was always restocked for the next person. When the dinner was over, they were very quiet on the clean up. Boxed up the extra food and we had to do nothing.
Wonderful.

Rain City Catering prepared the best food for our wedding. All of our guests loved what they ate. They were so helpful with meeting and setting up the time line and the little details of the day. They went over and above for us!

We were very happy with the job City Catering did for our daughter's wedding. The company's management were courteous, flexible and good communicators. The food they provided was excellent and the wait staff were professional and unobtrusive. Everything they said they would do, they did, and did it well. Our wedding planner likes working with them, too, and that made everything go more smoothly.

Lendy, Davey, and the whole crew at City Catering were awesome! My husband and I were very happy with our experience with them. They worked very closely with us to tailor the menu uniquely to us. We have received many comments from our guests that attended our wedding with how good the food, wine, and service was. I would definitely recommend City Catering to anyone out there looking to cater a wedding or other special event.

City Catering was absolutely wonderful! We aren't local to the Seattle area, and they were so helpful from the first with working with our schedule, starting with an amazing tasting. Rebecca met us with several times to figure out what would be the perfect fit for our wedding, and was amazing with making a great event that was within our budget (not easy!). The one small issue is that she is sometimes a bit hard to get ahold of, but we also figured out everything we needed to know in plenty of time. Everyone absolutely loved loved the food--we've had so many compliments of both best wedding food ever, and some of the best food period! We couldn't have asked for a better experience on our wedding day.

City Catering was a fantastic catering company. My venue only provided the tables and chairs so I needed everything else (linens, table settings, service to move everything around as well as food). They were very responsive to my e-mails which was a huge part in why I picked them since I needed to be able to get answers and pricing back quickly. Davey and Lendy were amazing every step of the way. Giving great suggestions, but allowing me to have final word (aka they weren't pushy). I had to rely on them for the set up as the wedding party was doing photos and the end result was amazing. There food was decent, but it's their service that put them over the top. Would definitely suggest City Catering!
