The venue staff and the amazing food made my wedding a glorious experience. From planning with the staff prior to the event (organized, responsive, comprehensive) and the staff on the day of (flexible, kind, amazing), I can't say enough for how amazing! The food...I keep getting compliments for how good the food was (I am secretly craving more), we had the short ribs, potatoes, coconut chicken, salad and chocolate torte. Perfection! They also accosted for my gluten allergy! They allowed me to bring my own food favors and set up my items on their tables. The room is naturally beautiful and they added their own accents, candles and tea lights. The night was magical and I want to relive it!

We were thrilled with our choice of Ravishing Radish. The food was seasonal, fresh, nicely presented, and absolutely delicious, and there was a range of options and prices that helped with our budget. We didn't have our wedding at the company's venue, and we were pleased with their willingness to travel and their timely arrival despite lots of summer weekend traffic. The staff answered my questions quickly. I would absolutely recommend Ravishing Radish to everyone I know. If only the restaurant was still open so we could go back for more!

We got married at the Tyee Yacht Club and were really happy with the venue space and catering. Our food was fantastic and the service was great! We received a lot of good feedback from our guests as well. Our only complaint about the venue is that it does not have air conditioning and was way too hot for our guests on our 90+ degree wedding day.

Hands down the best food I have ever had at a wedding. And that wasn't even just my opionion -- our family and friends still comment on how good the food was. We decided not to skimp on the food for our wedding and RR was definitely worth the extra $. They even pre-plated all the wedding partie's dinner plates for them which was so thoughtful. I don't know if my husband and I would have eaten at our own wedding. Even the presentation is out of this world. The people were also a complete pleasure to work with and flexible with catering to our tastes. I definitely would recommend them and I definitely would use them again.

When we began to plan our event, our number one priority was to have good food. Many of our guests were hospitality industry veterans who can hold a high standard, so we also wanted amazing service. We found it in Ravishing Radish. They were professional, patient with us, accommodating of last minute changes, hit the ground running, and could adapt well to ever-changing needs and surprise challenges on event day.

The food tasted great and they were a pleasure to work with.

Tyee Yacht Club is a beautiful location, I got rave reviews about the food, everything was well organized, went according to plan and because we planned far in advance we got an amazing deal. We were able to have the wedding of our dreams way below the average Seattle budget I saw on sites such as this. Highly recommend.

Though Yacht Club on Lake Union is a beautiful space, I would not recommend having your wedding here. The biggest problem was that we had to be the ones taking all the initiative and doing all the communication, otherwise, there wouldn't have been anything done. They are the experts, yet, we had no guidance or direction. We had to think of everything and ask a billion questions, resulting in several back and forth email exchanges, which then resulted in attachments getting missed, etc. We penciled in a temporary timeline 2 months ahead and nobody followed up with us to see if the timeline was set. Therefore, the timeline that they had was different from the one we had. We could have done better too, but it slipped through the cracks when we were juggling a million other things. But as a supposed experienced event manager, do you just shrug and say "oh well, lets go with a draft"?? The result was food being prepared way too early, leading to a lukewarm and unappetizing dinner.

By the way, they do NOT offer a free tasting and they will not budge. They will only give a $40 credit to eat at their restaurant, which is not the same.

In addition, the diagram and the actual set up did not look the same...we had no warning that things would be quite squished.

Lastly, the bartender assigned to us did not follow the recipes for the specialty cocktail, so unequal amounts of alcohol were poured. At one point, a guest tipped him, so the bartender offered extra alcohol--is this a wedding venue or a night club? (The guest, by the way, declined.)

The most distressing thing was when we emailed the owner about our concerns, she did not respond professionally and seemed to take it quite personally ("this is upsetting me") when we politely outlined what went wrong and even took responsibility for what we could have done differently. Sadly, she did not do the same on behalf of her business and became defensive instead. Brides, if you decide on this venue, good luck.

Ravishing Radish did a great job. Their food is awesome - they have a tapas-style restaurant nearby, we went there a few times and it helped us narrow down our appetizer choices (latkes are super good!). I also really liked that they gave me a bid, that spelled out exactly what it would cost, even at the very beginning. No other venue/caterer did that.

The reason for the 4 star on responsiveness probably won't apply to anyone else. The person who was supposed to help me plan my wedding didn't respond to me at one point for 2 months. When I did hear from her, she said was quitting. Which turned out to be good, because I was handed back to Vickie, who is great. She first showed us the space, was up front about what they could and couldn't do, responded to all my emails.

Lindsay, the day of catering manager, was great too. I had some guests leave early due to illness, and that left a table of 2. She helped me get them to the exact table I wanted them to sit at.

If you do use their venue, keep in mind that it's hard to schedule a rehearsal at the venue. We ended up doing 2 rehearsals, one with a few of the wedding party at the venue, and one without everyone at another location. It turned out fine, but since I've never been in a wedding before, it was stressful to me that the rehearsal was not smooth (schedule-wise).
