"Thank you so very much for all of your work, hand-holding and vision for Jamieson’s 40th! We had a great evening and received so many comments about how delicious the food was – you guys rocked it! The seafood presentation was beautiful and the smoked salmon was so good! Loved loved loved the fried chicken and the green beans were a perfect pair and so tasty! The staff was helpful, listened to each detail, somehow turned that room in a hot minute – just a well-oiled machine! Thanks again for your help – we really appreciate it." - Tiffany S.
"Devil’s Food is simply the best! As a trusted partner of the Portland Japanese Garden since 2014, they have provided their services for a diverse range of events, from Board meetings to high-end galas with 300+ attendees. Through the years they’ve met numerous logistical challenges (“no kitchen? no problem!”) with grace and unfailing enthusiasm. Their incredible staff is prompt, thoughtful, professional, and clearly loves what they do. And the food is perfection! Every item served – original cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres, multi-course meals, or decadent desserts – is beautiful and delicious. Our special events are all the more special when Devil’s Food is involved." - Sarah Y.
"As a wedding planner, planning my own wedding was quite the task. When it came time for my husband and I to select our caterer, we knew we had to have Devil’s Food. I have had the pleasure of working with Devil’s Food for many years now on behalf of my clients. I have always recommended them as they have exceptional food, amazing service and help make a wedding run smooth. When it came time for my own wedding, my expectations were exceeded. In working with James he designed a wonderful menu that featured local purveyors, he made recommendations as to where we could think outside of the box and in the end, made the food for our wedding a memorable piece. I knew they would do a wonderful job, but what I did not realize is how they handled everything with such grace and ease. We had a pretty large wedding but this did not stop them from making sure each guest felt like a VIP. After our wedding we heard from numerous people raving about the food, drinks and service. Devil’s Food helped make it all possible and I can’t recommend them enough!" - Elizabeth S.
"Dear James, I wanted to let you know that we are still receiving kudos for the 720-person corporate event Devil’s Food catered for my client, GEA Group, on April 16, 2015. As a result, I have been reflecting on the excellent product, service, and attention to detail afforded to us by your company.In addition to the superior quality food you prepared, your servers were congenial and adept at performing their assigned duties. The culinary displays were creative beyond anything prepared for previous similar events in other cities. In particular, the 75-pound line-caught tuna, sushi roll displays, and carving station topped our expectations. Your special touches, including the addition of the Ruby Jewel ice cream cart and world-renowned Scotch expert, added to the overall excellence of the event and the positive lasting impression it made on my client and their guests.I know for a fact that sales of the client’s equipment are being finalized following our Portland, OR program and I want you and all the staff at Devil’s Food to know the part you have played in this. if I can ever provide a verbal or written recommendation to another corporate event planner, please don’t hesitate to call me." - Kathy W.
