I just signed the contract and put down the deposit. We went to their "open house" the other day and my fiance really liked it. I was a little underwhelmed. I think I’m just tired with the process of looking for a venue/caterer and don’t want to spend a lot of money. They seemed very reasonably priced and as long as my fiance liked it, I was ok with it. I’m just curious if anyone out there has used them and what your experience was like…THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY COMMENTS

I checked Project Wedding and the Knot bios and I wasn’t able to find any first-hand accounts other than what their website had. They also haven’t been the caterer at any of the meetings I’ve attended. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.
Still, it was nice to see someone else have a Seattle comment!

I found a couple reviews by googling them. Check these out:
The reviews are kind of old but at least it’s something. Why don’t you call them and ask for contact info from previous clients? Obviously they’ll only send you info from people that were satisfied but at least you can find out what worked well.
Good luck! (And I’m glad to see another Seattle bride on here too!)

We just used them to cater a 200 person reception for a grad school alumni group, and they were fantastic. I wasn’t involved in the booking so I can’t speak to the prices, but the service was very professional and the food was tasty. Also, the event coordinator on our end strongly preferred working with them, due to her past experiences. Hope that is helpful!

I went to a wedding at Tyee Yacht Club that they catered and it was AWESOME. I remember it as the best wedding food I’ve ever had. And it was a wedding on a budget so they only had chicken but it was so good I kinda couldn’t believe it. I’ve been to a lot of weddings and I used to WORK weddings so I know wedding food. Seriously, you are going to love the food and if its the best wedding food I can remember, surely it will be the best wedding food a lot of your guests can remember? If we were getting married in the city they would be at the top of my list.

You will without a doubt LOVE the food they have to offer you and your guests. If Fiance and I weren’t using Herban Feasts venue then I would for sure higher Ravishing Radish. OMG I have heard and experienced nothing but great things from them… You’re a lucky girl!

I wish I was using them! Their place, Ravish, is down the street from me, and the food is SO amazing.. plus the people who run it are super nice.
I hope it works out for you!

My friend used them for her reception and they were really good! I need to start working on the catering part, I’ve been avoiding it, I think cause it’s the most expensive part of the wedding. So if anyone has some suggestions…

We just got back from our meeting with Heather at Ravishing Radish, and I am pretty much beaming. What a great vendor.
We booked Ravishing Radish last summer, and while I will say email communication has been far less than stellar since then, our in-person meeting was just fabulous. She even had coffee, water, crackers and olives and cheese for us to munch on as it was a lunchtime meeting.
Heather was friendly, forthcoming and sublimely accommodating. I’m a vegetarian, and she was beyond eager to help come up with a menu that would be delicious for all of my guests and in keeping with my morals. She had a lot of ideas but also said that they were open to literally any food idea that I would suggest, based on things I’ve had at other restaurants or wherever.
This is full-service catering, which puts my mind at ease tremendously. Ravishing Radish will provide chairs, tables, linens in every color of the rainbow, obviously the glasses and flatware, and she worked it out with us so that we’d be able to have their staff move the chairs from the ceremony area to the reception area without having to pay for an additional staffperson’s time. (What we’re doing is paying for half the reception area to already have chairs set up in it, which is fairly cheap, so that their staff only has to move half the chairs from the ceremony to the reception area.)
I love their innovative and delicious menu ideas, I love the sustainable/local/organic ethic, I love working with them, and I feel completely at ease about putting a huge part of my wedding day into their hands.
