  • We had an excellent experience with Gayle Orth Catering. They did the wedding cake for my daughter's wedding in August 2019. The cake was delicious (carrot cake). It was a pleasure to work with them. They were efficient in their communication with me. They also creatively adjusted the order to accommodate the grooms dislike of coconut - the bottom layer had coconut and the top did not! Everyone was happy! They also packed the cake very well so that it was safe for our 1 hr travel with it in the back of our car to the wedding venue. They thought of everything and made it all so easy. I would highly recommend Gayle Orth Catering for your wedding.

  • Gayle Orth, and her staff, are simply the best! Our daughter and her (now) husband, wanted an outdoor wedding celebration in our garden. Gayle prepared a sketch of our yard with tables & chairs for our guests, umbrellas (for hot sun or pouring rain, it’s the PNW!), a bar, absolutely everything needed to make our wedding party flow perfectly. She provided menu options, based on our preferences. Gayle listened to our feedback, and provided expert advise based on her years of experience. The food was delicious, fresh and well prepared, beautifully plated and individually served. Our daughter’s wedding celebration was lovely.

    Thank you Linda, Craig, Maddie and Jesse! It was truly our honor to help celebrate this wonderful event. Thank you so very, very much for your kind words; it was truly our pleasure! It was beautiful, personal and so very special.

  • My husband and I truly have never been so impressed by a team of amazing individuals. Gayle and her staff made sure every single detail of our wedding was handled with the utmost of care. They went above and beyond in every way. Our guests all commented on the quality of food and the friendliness of her staff. They attended to us as if we were family, but with the utmost of professionalism. I would recommend Gayle (and have) to any one and everyone. She and her team are nothing short of spectacular. Gayle made the most important day of my life exceptionally special. I can't possibly thank her and her team enough!!!

  • We engaged Gayle Orth Catering for an evening corporate event and they were an absolute joy to work with. Gayle is responsive and experienced. We made multiple changes to our menu and headcount, and she was incredibly flexible. Her knowledge of the venue and the options available was incredibly helpful in planning our event. Her service staff was friendly and professional and the food beautiful was delicious! We hope to use Gayle Orth for future events!

    Thank you for kind and gracious words. We were honored to have been a part of your event, most especially on a brutally cold and icy evening! You were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to many more events. Thank you!

  • Gayle Orth Catering is second to none. The food is amazing. I had an event where Gayle handled all of the catering, set up and clean up. Her staff was attentive to the point where guests noticed the high level of service and commented as such. The food was absolutely delicious, not to mention the beautiful display of all of the food and desserts. Amazing!

  • Gayle is the number one catering service in the Pacific NW and I highly recommend her. I have used her for family gatherings, post wedding brunches, bridal and baby showers, and more. Gayle and her amazing team catered a beautiful event in our home to celebrate my husbands retirement and our guests loved every bite! Gayle also supplied drinks (fantastic signature cocktails) and wine pairings for the food. Her menu is expansive and there are many choices. The food is truly the best and she is the top chef in town!!

  • Hiring Gayle was instrumental to how smoothly everything went on our big day. The food was excellent but beyond the catering service, she gave us contacts for our other vendors, planned and went above and beyond what we could have expected. I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or big event.

    Thank you so much, Franco! You and Michaela were WONDERFUL! All the very, very best to you both! We look forward to working with you for the next big event in your lives!

  • Gayle and her team far exceeded our expectations. We hired them for our Sunday Brunch after our wedding. We have families and friends who are all professional chefs or at least incredible foodies. The food and presentation were spectacular and delicious. Gayle was wonderful to work with and I would not hesitate to hire them again. My husband said to me after our party, "that that was the BEST party that we ever hosted"! I said, " yeah because we had it catered"! It was stress free, and beautiful. Gayle's service team were on time and charming to work with. I look forward to our next opportunity to hire Gayle and her team.

    Thank you so much!!! We had a wonderful time!!! It was a great event and so glad that all was well enjoyed! Looking forward to the next event! Thank you!!!

  • Gayle is so much more than just catering. She stepped in as basically a day of coordinator and contacted all vendors prior to ensure everyone was on the same page. Not many people can say their wedding day went off without a single thing going wrong but Gayle Orth catering made that happen for me and I will definitely be using them in the future! She took so much stress away it was a miracle.

    You are so welcome. It was a wonderful, albeit VERY rainy, day! Everyone was so gracious and kind! We wish you and Stuart all the best and look forward to the next milestone in your lives. Thank you so much.

  • Working with Gayle orth was a dream. Her business acumen, exquisite cuisine, and exceptional service Were at the pinnacle of her trade. The professionalism exhibited by Gayle and her team as well, reflected Her high standards. She was willing to perform any task or extra service asked of her. She offered me Sage advice . Although expensive, She was willing to Reasonably craft her service to meet our budget concerns. In My opinion there is no better caterer Available. Gayle and her team where the greatest contributor to the success of the wedding event. My takeaway from this experience was if you must cut the budget , hire the best caterer and DJ And Levy the cuts to other services. These two, ultimately determine the success of the event and what the guests remember. She’s the very best!

  • EXCELLENCE falls short of a description for Gayle Orth, her menu, culinary execution, resources, service and staff. You will not find a better Partner for your event. Honestly, I want to keep her a secret, but at the same time want to share her creativity with all. Extremely attentive to needs- menus able to shift to accommodate dietary restrictions or preferences. I never give perfect scores- but I will for Gayle, she broke the record.

  • All of our guests enjoyed their dinner provided by Gayle Orth's team - It was great! We opted to pick up our catering and I was directed to walk through their main preparation area. I noted that everything seemed very clean and orderly. The employees were all courteous and took the time to explain how to use their serving equipment. All of the equipment and utensils were clean and in excellent condition They were flexible with the menu and willing to add something last-minute (within a week of our dinner). Gayle was very warm and easy to talk via email, phone and in person. The whole process was enjoyable and I would happily refer this caterer to friends & family.

    Thank you so very much. It was our absolute pleasure! We so hope that we made the day a bit more relaxed, and certainly delicious, for you and your family. Our Best Wishes to you!
