In the past 30 years, from winning awards for Best Vegetarian Dishes to milling its own organic flour, Twelve Baskets understands you. Working with over a dozen local farmers, vendors, and ranchers ensures the healthiest and freshest foods for your event. Read less

Twelve baskets catering went above and beyond for my wedding. They helped to provide gluten free and lactose free items so all my guests could eat everything provided. Their tasting events are so fun, and the food they provided was even better than I expected. The staff was wonderful and attentive. They took initiative when necessary to make sure everything was perfect. They were happy to display and serve my family provided desserts, and helped to make sure everything looked amazing. They took my vision and made it come alive. When you hire this caterer, you get much more than food service, you get planning help and a staff who is eager to make your experience amazing.

Twelve Baskets Catering is absolutely fantastic to work with from the very first contact (which was extremely prompt) to the very last exchange (which was so lovely).I was and am thrilled and thankful that we chose Twelve Baskets for our Caterer. Even if Twelve Baskets costs more than other caterers, you get so much more professional customer service than any other caterer (I tried working with numerous and Twelve Baskets far surpassed all others in responsiveness and helpfulness) and they are completely worth every dollar!!! I knew that if we chose Twelve Baskets Catering, I wouldn't have to worry about a thing after that important decision, and it was one of the best big wedding decisions we made! Our wedding was Asian Inspired and the Twelve Baskets staff were extremely patient with all of my questions, special requests, and changes of menu items. The Cocktail Hour food was incredible and the presentation was simple elegance, that matched our esthetics perfectly AND it was just like the images we saw on their website. The food was delicious, even our "foodie" friends who are self-admitted "Seattle food snobs" really liked the cocktail hour items and dinner. Dessert was wonderful and our guests loved all of the dessert options in addition to our wedding cake. The helpful and friendly on-site catering staff packaged up all of the food left over for us, and we savored the delicious food and desserts for days! THANK YOU Twelve Baskets Catering--thank you for helping make our dream wedding come true!

We are still hearing comments on how good the food was. We found Twelve Baskets through our venue just two months before our wedding. We did all the arrangements via emails and phone calls. They always responed quickly and professionally. We placed our trust in Twelve Baskets and they came through above and beyond our expectations. They food wasn't only delicious, it was beautifully displayed and expertly served.

Everyone at Twelve Baskets Catering was so helpful from start to finish. They helped us find a rental place that gave us an even better price for linens and china. The food was absolutely delicious and the servers were extremely helpful. They even brought their own overlays and decorations in our wedding colors for the buffet table and bar. Any question or little change I had in the process of planning was promptly answered and taken care of by a simple email to our consultant. Great service and great food!

Twelve Baskets happened to be the caterer for my best friends wedding back in 2009, so I was happy to find them listed as a vendor for the wedding venue I had selected this past Aug (Sander's Estate). We did a tasting with another caterer just to get some comparison, but at the end of the day, we just liked Twelve Baskets food and presentation better, so we booked them. It was an incredibly good decision!!! Every single guest I've talked to since commented on how great the food was...Including picky eaters, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. It made me feel so good and so proud to have hosted such an event for 180 friends and family, and to have everything go seamlessly; not to mention absolutely classy... The food and staff from Twelve Baskets was an enormous contribution to the night, and I'm ever grateful for their outstanding work and professionalism; they really took care of us and helped to make our wedding day one of the best days of my life.

Twelve Baskets Catering catered our wedding in June. We couldn't have asked for better service, value, and delicious food! From the beginning, Twelve Baskets was very professional and helpful in selecting a menu that fit our tastes and budget. They went above and beyond on the day of our wedding, creating a pie display with some extra materials they had on hand. The chicken kabobs, caprese skewers, sliders, potato salad, veggies, and fruit were not only delicious but gorgeous! The servers were also very friendly and professional. We got tons of compliments from our 200 guests and couldn't have asked for better food and service! We highly recommend Twelve Baskets Catering for wedding and other event catering!

Twelve Baskets does an AMAZING job. First of all, Sara, the woman who we met with in person was very good at communicating with us, despite my wife and I being very young and not really knowing what we wanted. The price, even though a bit expensive (it seems like all good caterers are expensive), was less expensive than a lot of other places we went for a tasting at. Our tasting was very professional and whenever I had questions in after we had said YES to them, Sara was able to always give good advice and help me out with a lot of details that normally I think a caterer wouldn't be responsible for. She even helped me save money with other services like on drinks and even gave us a discount on the food (I don't remember why now though, but every bit helps!)

On the day of the wedding, the caterers showed up (I can't seem to remember all of their names), and everyone put everything in place. Each person was on task and really nice. One of their caterers, Linda (which is my mom's name, hence why I remember) gave me a really nice genuine compliment.

I'm really glad they were there, and we all worked as a team to make the wedding go wonderfully. Even though they were in the background, they were always there to keep things moving along. Everything was beautiful that they did, and even had some extras that I didn't even plan for that made the venue look great. The food, though a typical wedding type buffet, was amazingly delicious. Yeah I could have got the same menu from a different place for maybe a few hundred less, but the food wouldn't have been nearly as good.

Twelve Baskets is great, and I'm not the first person to think this. If you want elegant catering at a good price, excellent service, and genuine employees, give Twelve Baskets a call, have a tasting, and pay attention to the detail they put in everything, from presentation, to preparation, to the way the food looks, smells, tastes, and makes you feel after eating, and lastly to how attentive they are to your individual needs.
