AMAZING. I received many compliments on Renton Tech. Francisco and his team were absolutely fabulous. They were so helpful on my wedding day. The day after I got married, my mother got married and Francisco was there again to help! We are both extremely pleased with his services. The food was amazing, the staff was amazing, the cake was beautiful (the color ended up being a little off on the right shade).

I would definitely use again. So happy with Renton Tech. Thanks!!

Renton Tech Catering was amazing at my wedding!! They showed up on time, the staff was on top of their game and cleaning up after my guests! The food was yummy! Our guest were able to bring home the leftovers with the to-go-containers I provided. Colleen, the main person I've speaking with up until the day of the wedding was very very helpful and very prompt to all my emails. She was exceptionally helpful and nice. I'm so so happy that I went with Renton Tech Catering!!!

Very very friendly service. The manager will respond back pretty quickly. My only complaint is that they don't offer food tasting. I was disappointed with the taste and the quality of the food that day. But the price was unbeatable. I would recommend only to brides who are on a real tight budget and is not picky about the taste or the presentation of the food.

We absolutely loved working with Renton Technical College's catering department. You can't beat the price for their catering services and the food is actually REALLY good. Our guests were surprised to actually have GOOD wedding food. They never ceased to tell us how good it was. We were very happy with our experience working with Colleen when coordinating our catering plans. She was very flexible and willing to do whatever we wanted, even if it wasn't normally on the menu. They provided plates, utensils, napkins, and tablecovers for our wedding day (at a minimal additional charge). There was plenty of food at the wedding for guests to have seconds and even thirds if they wanted.

We also ordered our cake from them. The cake turned out beautifully and tasted fantastic! One setback however was that the hosts from Renton Tech must not have gotten the memo that with our cake order, it also included cake plates. So one of the staff members had to run to the local Safeway to purchase some floral paper cake plates.

We ordered a 3 tiered cake to display and a sheet cake to cut and serve in the back. We ordered a white cake with strawberry filling for the tiered cake and chocolate for the sheet cake. Unfortunately the servers hosting the wedding didn't know they were two different kinds of cake, so they cut up the whole tiered cake before someone told them we had chocolate cake in the back! So guests ended up helping themselves to two servings of cake, white to start, and chocolate to follow up. Fortunately we ordered enough that there was plenty to spare even after everyone had seconds.

Despite the minor bumps, our experience with Renton Technical College Catering was phenomenal. We are so happy with how everything turned out and would use them again if we had the chance!

First I will say RTC had good food, an excellent price, professional servers, and was great to work with before and during the wedding. However I was disappointed with Colleen's response after the wedding when there was a problem.
We were under the impression that the plastic plates they provided was a nicer china look alike, along with silver look alike plastic utensils. I have an e-mail were I asked about the type of plastic they provided and that was the only type described to me (along with giving me the option of paying more for real china rentals). When we went to the tasting it was the only plates and utensils we were shown. But on the day of the wedding what we got was plain black utensils and ugly recyclable brown/beige-ish plates. I was extremely disappointed and upset that we weren't getting what we had been led to believe we would get. The chef/servers that were at the reception where very nice and apologetic about and and told me they would talk to Colleen about the problem.
A few days later I was contacted by Colleen saying something along the lines of 'Heard everything went great at your wedding, what card should I charge the remaining balance to?' To which I replied that we were actually not entirely happy and explained the problem. Later she replied that she had heard about the incident, but that we had stated we wanted the free plates and those ones were free. When I replied with the e-mail I had talking about the plates she said that she did not have that e-mail (I feel she was accusing me of lying) and that the plates we thought we were getting cost more. While exchanging these e-mails she charged the remaining amount to my card.
Though I understand that we need to pay for the service we got, I feel like she was entirely unapologetic about the mix up, and it would have been more professional for her to not charge us until the matter had been resolved. Which it still hasn't.
Very Disappointed with the aftermath. Very poor problem handling.

RTC did an amazing job, the food was delicious, way better than any of the tastings we had gone to for expensive caterers. The students dressed professionally (all in black), did an amazing job plating and serving. We got so many compliments on our food, no one knew or would have guessed that we had students! I highly recommend them, we had a plated dinner, with a starter and salad, plus 3 passed appetizers for 50, and we spent under $1700, the best value and excellent food!

Renton Technical College (RTC) has an incredible culinary arts program. The catering services they provide are professional and reasonably priced, and the food is delicious! The catering coordinator will work with you to develop a menu - if you have a theme, they can follow it; if you have no idea what kind of food you will serve, they make excellent suggestions. (Linens can also be reserved through RTC. This was my only area of concern - not all of the tablecloths matched and there were not many options for color and size. I definitely still recommend the use of the catering services, though.)
