I had used Mr. RICKS catering for 3 different events sure the price was decent food was average when we got what we paid for. Showed up intoxicated to a tasting & without the food.
Was horrificly rude after 3rd event once i pointed out not all fiod was providedn i asked for a money discount on balance $350 to be reduced, he refused & became demanding to the point of harrassment because his final payment was not delivered timely, yet the check was mailed to his address he provided & he had moved several months prior.
Would never ever recommend nor use again. Not to mention he's NOT licenced...

DO NOT USE!-He is unlicensed-not professional in appearance (sloppy t-shirt) -an hour late with food - only one helper for over 250 people- beverages not ready even after the food was ready- we had to go buy drinks because he wasn't ready- there were no sternos to keep the food hot in the shaffing pans and no water in several of the shaffing pans- my sister did all the refilling of food, napkins, plates (and there were no knives to cut the baked potatoes or beef)- the "baked potatoes" were the size of baby reds- he didn't want to have a two-sided buffet so people were waiting over an hour and food was cold half way through...................very disappointed

I had the hardest time finding a good caterer in the Seattle area. Mr. Rick was recommended to me by a family friend who uses him for multiple functions. Most caterers had too specific of packages which almost always included fish of some kind. My fiance and I don't care for fish- so that was a problem.
Mr. Rick brought the tasting to us and was amazingly professional and affordable. He also changed some of his recipes to fit our needs.
The only bad thing I can say is that I didn't find him earlier because he does not have a website and he isn't on some of the more popular wedding search engines.
At and after the wedding we received so many compliments on the food and the guests were so pleased with everything. We served prime rib, and chicken in an alfredo sauce with vegetables and cheesy mashed potatoes which were to die for! There was also rolls, butter, punch, coffee, water and tea for everyone to enjoy. Mr. Rick even bartended our wedding as well and he had everything we needed to set up the kegs and serve our alcohol.
If I ever need a caterer ever again for any event I would absolutely use Mr. Rick again and I am raving to all of my friends about his excellent work!

Mr. Rick catered my small wedding (about 25 people) and they were AMAZING! Everyone was raving about the food. The prime rib was awesome as well as the chicken and all side dishes. The pricing was great too! I didn't think I could afford to have my wedding catered, but these prices made it possible with the best food too. My mom was so grateful to the bartender who took on extra duties from watching my 3 month old niece while everyone was getting pictures taken to helping her cut the cake. I can't say enough about them. So wonderful!

Mr. Rick provided a wonderful meal for our wedding. He made a menu to suit our tastes and provided many options to choose from. The food was delicious and there was quite a bit left over. The food was an amazing value for the price. Mr. Rick was a little hard to get a hold of at times, but always returned my calls and emails. We will definitely use his services again.

I had an awesome time at our wedding. The only speed bump was Mr. Rick's. I was very clear about everything expected of him and his staff. He was provided with a detailed time-line of the night. He was over an hour late, and in result my family had to help serve the wine at cocktail hour. He had none of the beer cups for the keg. No wine glasses. (it was in the contract that he provided them)

HE RAN OUT OF FOOD!!!! and yelled at guest for asking for coffee??
Please understand I was warned prior to using him but thought no he is so nice and had such good reviews.
Wrong Late out of food and very rude to my family. Promised one thing and received another.

We paid for for food for 140 people and only had 120 show up, yet we still ran out?? Good luck to the all the Brides :)

Mr Rick created a custom menu just for us based on our favorites. This was a hit at the wedding. He was a huge help as he not only assisted with the food, but cleanup, cake, and bartending. He also worked with our budget !

We had been given Mr. Rick's name from a family member who had him catering a wedding and retirement party (which I was at the wedding so I got to meet him). He is very jovial and kind and very helpful. We planned our wedding far in advance, about 10-11 months so he had plenty of time to go through details and get final counts.

We told him what we would like for food and he said no problem. He worked up a menu in a few short days and quoted us a very, very reasonable buffet dinner. He had no problem with what we wanted as did a few other caterers that told us, "no, you don't want that. People like carving stations, not trays..." I liked that Mr. Rick really listened to what WE wanted and didn't force anything upon us.

He was right there with us from the start not just with food, but linens and decorations as well. Him and his staff were again very helpful and very very reasonably priced.
