BEWARE of this catering company! The only thing we hired them for was to provide food and good service to our guests, and they 100% FAILED at both of those things.

When we had our traditional holiday open house at my mom's, she used the Upper Crust Catering company to provide trays of appetizers. They put together an impressive spread fo hot and cold hors d'oevres that were very satisfying and a treat to eat.

They did an absolutely wonderful job for a 50th Birthday party recently. I worked with Blair and he was great. He helped coordinate everything and helped create the menu. The food was incredible and so good. We had some left over and they brought to go containers so people could take home leftovers. Daniel was our server and he did an excellent job. He thought of everything, was very professional and had a great sense of humor. The way the food was displayed was perfect. It was a casual event and a surprise for the birthday person as far as the catering went. I never had a chance to sample any of the food ahead of time so I put all of my faith in Blair and the Upper Crust. People are still talking about the food and the event and everyone raved about the food and the servers. Everything was cleaned up and put away, the trash taken with them. The next morning you would never have known there was a party at the home the night before. Thank you Upper Crust for pulling off a wonderful event. I will recommend you to everyone I know.

Cons: None

I've worked with The Upper Crust several times and once again they blew me away with their service, food & staff. My husband is half Hawaiian, so we worked with Blair on creating a Hawaiian inspired menu. People are STILL talking about how fantastic the food was - there was not one speckle of food leftover from the wedding. It was very important to us that our food/beverage set up was as elegant as possible and with a VERY small budget;The Upper Crust delivered!! When I walked into the reception room I couldn't believe how the bars and buffet were set up - completely blew me away! I will continue to use them and promote this company!

Pros: Amazing staff, accomodating to budget, wide selection, great presentation.

Cons: NOTHING!

I researched caterers for a birthday party of 40+ persons. I chose the Upper Crust based on that research and a former caterer's recommendation. The food was fabulous and the wait staff were professional and offered to take pictures, and served people professionally and with a smile. At the end of the party, they boxed up the leftovers and cleaned up the entire venue. Blair was the rep I dealt with. He came out to the house initially for layout and setup recommendations. He suggested a backup plan in case of rain. We had the party outside but had a tent in case of rain. He always had other vendors ready and available for items the Upper Crust didn't provide, e.g., tent rental, inexpensive beer and wine providers, etc. The beauty of this caterer was they were able to recognize what the customer wanted and tailored the menu, setup and theme without any issues. My request was for a Northwest menu - salmon, salad, some Italian dishes, pasta, gnocchi, etc. The desserts were fantastic - people are still raving about it. The tasting beforehand matched up with what was served - excellent entree choices with appropriate side dishes. I was very grateful for the suggestions and nothing was forced. It all happened smoothly, even with a few frantic phone calls with changing numbers of guests expected, the unpredicatability of the weather, and changing from 1 to 2 waitstaff. Blair really was key to this event. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is easy to work with either in person, email or by phone. We will use them again and some of my friends who attended the party have asked for the Upper Crust's information. All the party goers raved about the food and the presentation. I was quite pleased and recommend them highly. J Spec

Pros: Thumbs up and up!

Cons: It's tough when you're planning a party outside in June - lots of variables that no one can control

What we ordered and paid for was very different than what we got come wedding day. The "fresh" green beans that were served were old and out of a can - they had a grey tint to them and tasted disgusting. We paid for 100+ people to have servings of pasta w/ dinner and NO one received pasta. The sirloin was not warm and was over cooked. The caterers were given a list of names/tables and dinner choice (both in advance of the wedding and ON the wedding date) but they still went around asking our guests what they wanted to eat. The kids menu looked horrible (chicken fingers). We complained and we were told we'd get a refund of $200 - it's been over 4 weeks and we still haven't received our refund. They also put a hidden "service charge" in their estimate....no one would ever tell us what that was for. Overall, very bad experience. Don't use Upper Crust if you are looking for good, fresh, quality service and food.

Pros: they provide linens but at a cost

Cons: bad food, bad customer service, and bad buisness practices

I hired this caterer for my wedding. Some of the food was good, but a lot of it was not so good. The chicken was rubbery and the pasta dish was slimy and soggy. Holding food hot can be problematic, but they are caterers for crying out loud.

The biggest caution I have is the word "may". I ordered a cheese tray that stated what kind of cheese it "may" include: brie, cherve, and gouda. What I got was cubes of cheddar and swiss, which seemed very much like Kraft cheeses. This is the kind of shady things people always warn you about when you hire a caterer. They did it to me, so they could do it to you.
