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 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!

City Catering is Amazing! They made me feel like the most important bride and event from the beginning until the end. From the personalized (allergy free) menu to the actual event, everything was seamless. I work in the Catering business too and would highly reccomend them to anyone! My guests are still commenting on how wonderful the food was.

City Catering was spectacular from start to finish. I have worked in the Hospitality industry for over 10 years and couldn't think of a more professional and delicious option. Food was the most important aspect of my event and I had guests going back for seconds and thirds just raving about the spread. In addition, I have food allergies and without even thinking about it, my catering manager Rebecca created a customized menu to please everyone. I was able to eat everything and not worry. Also, their service is fantastic and they definately made sure to respect the location and help to clean up afterwords. I will forever reccomend City Catering and couldn't have gone with a better choice.

City Catering was a dream to work with. We met with Rebecca and gave her our general ideas and budget (which wasn't huge) and they totally made it work for us. They were super flexible as far as alcohol, cake, etc. The servers our day were really helpful--there were of course the unpredicted day-of changes--but in the end they made everything work perfectly. All our guests LOVED the food and there was plenty of it!
I already recommended them to friends who were looking for a caterer. I would choose City Catering again for any kind of event.
