Foodz Catering ROCKS! They have the most creative, delectable, and eclectic menu. Their staff are incredibly friendly and fun to work with, and are super flexible to meet your vision. They do a high quality job at a reasonable price that fits most budgets. Our menu was spectacular!! We had two kinds of slider sandwiches (pulled pork and steak), Sweet Potato Crab Cakes, Stuffed Peppers, Asparagus/Flaky Phylo Dough bites, Cheese platter, Veggie straws, and Tater Tots! Not to mention premium beverages.

My mom and I had a blast meeting with Shelby at her bistro and having lunch. It was fun talking with her before we got down to wedding business. She listens to your ideas and comes up with great ideas. She felt more like a wedding planner than a just a caterer - she talked a lot about theme/vision/presentation - not just food/drink. Presentation was great. She worked with our ideas to try and meet our budget, but I had to raise my budget to get the outcomes I wanted.
Food was awesome - guests were impressed. One person wished they had left the food out longer, but I know others that went back for seconds/thirds so I'm not sure what happened. I got my fill and they had a to-go box ready at the end of the night for my husband and I to take with us.
I'm a vegetarian -we only had one meat dish, but I don't think anyone noticed. The menu: Apps: veggie crudite and dip, caprese pipets (check them out on the website, super cool and yummy), and stuffed peppadew peppers; Dinner: salad w/ fresh strawberries, beer mac and cheese w/ pretzel crust, beet/goat cheese/arugula/spicy alioli sliders, steak sliders, and green bean/corn salad. Everything tasted great. I couldn't pick a favorite, but really liked the mac-n-cheese and pipettes and peppers. Food was filling.
I brought in my own beer and wine but they provided a bartender. They did their water and great raspberry lemonade -fresh, not fake sweet like they can be.
I brought in local ice cream from molly moon and they took care of the display/service of it.
The only downside was they arrived later than they said they would for setup which really stressed my mom out for decorations. I haven't had a chance to chat with Shelby but I heard from multiple guest that the traffic was gnarly so I'm guessing thats why. Despite the late arrival they had dinner/apps ready to go on time.
Shelby and her team come highly recommended! I couldn't have been happier with how the food turned out and how working with Shelby went.

Thank you Courtney! I loved working with you on your wedding. I appreciate your review. I am sorry your Mom was stressed out timing. About 1/2 the staff were late due to traffic issues that day but I was on hand as an extra person to ensure it all went well. With the additional help with my time onsite we were on time and ready to go for your event.

We attended an even hosted by Foodz elsewhere and were impressed by the taste of their food and the elegance of their presentation. They sold us with a salmon dish that was pan seared to order!

When it came down to crunch time our contact Shelby came to meet with our venue coordinator and discussed the details. We were able to efficiently hash out all of the specifics. Even during the meeting, Shelby was quick to note that they could or could not provide items at a lower cost then the venue itself, recommending us to use one or the other to save on costs.

Shelby was very easy to work with and very quick to respond to emails. I rated only 3/5 because it was very difficult to get an itemized quote from them. If you're planning a wedding, you know that there are many options for chairs, glasses, linens, tables, etc. We were trying to get the most cost effective solution, even if it meant using several different vendors (one for each specific item). When Foodz catering sent us our quotes based on our recommendations, they were always "bottom line only." It was very difficult to get an itemized quote for us to asses the cost compared to other vendors for various things.

Shelby, Sally, and Jason were all awesome to work with. They were very professional, yet very personal and likable at the same time. They worked very hard to make our wedding reception a success. Everyone raved about the food, and the service was top notch. I really can't think of a single bad thing to say about them. They were great! I would highly recommend going to one of their open house nights, as we made a lot of changes to our menu after seeing and tasting the food.

I am sorry this took so long, but I reviewed Foodz Catering on theknot.com as well! I do not think I can verbalize how pleased I was with not only the quality of food of Foodz Catering, but also the customer service. So often, great products and services are ruined with poor customer service, but Foodz knocked them both out of the park! Best mashed potatoes I've ever had!!

Foodz was good, but they were understaffed and didn't pass out drinks to thirsty guests when the line for the bar was stuffed like a tin of sardines. They tried hard to work efficiently, but ultimately should have had more staff to have a quicker turn-around from ceremony to reception, an hour was too long.

Everything was amazing! The food was great and everybody kept telling us how tasty everything was. They even had a huge box of food for us two to take home. The service was great too, they guys brought us snacks and drinks right after the ceremony and was so kind! I could've not asked for a better caterer!!! I can't stop thinking about the pork we had at the wedding, I highly recommend it.

I can not say enough good things about Foodz! I talked to several caterers in the beginning, but Melissa sold me on the deal with her receptivity, her responsiveness, and her unassuming knowledge of event planning. She continued this amazing service throughout, while coordinating rentals, venue configurations, and a few last minute changes. On the day-of, I was thrilled with the food, the staff's enthusiasm, and the lead's graciousness in interrupting the bride a few times for check-ins, which didn't seem like interruptions at all. My husband and I keep referring to how awesome the wedding was by saying, "wow, we really nailed it!" But really, I think Foodz nailed it.

My new husband, Michael, and I were so impressed with our very first contact with Shelby of FOODZ; she was so warm and welcoming in her professional approach to us besides having really tasty and creative food at the One Love event for wedding vendors, where we first met her. Every contact after that was so easy and comfortable including lots of emails (she was really responsive), the small tasting event we attended where we met several of her staff, and then having her and her team (Jason, the main chef was awesome) in our home for the Friday night rehearsal and Saturday wedding down near Mt. Rainier. The food at both events was delicious and so beautifully presented. Simply gorgeous!! Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the food and service were at both of these two events. We made a couple of changes in menu quite close to the event; Shelby and FOODZ were immediately responsive, with a "yes, of course, be glad to" attitude. Michael and I felt personally cared for by this wonderful team; I would use her again in a heartbeat. I simply don't have enough superlatives to endorse FOODZ. Bill E
