Our wedding venue gave us a list of three different catering companies that were approved to use at the location. After researching the selected few online Act 3 appeared to be the best fit for our wedding. After our first consultation, Donna invited my fiancé and I to one of...

However, Act 3 was a little on the pricy side (costing us a total of over $6,000.00) we were very pleased with the presentation, professionalism, and service we received from the catering on our wedding day.

First thing I have to say, my husband and I LOVE food and love to cook. And we live in Seattle, which, makes us spoiled as to many incredible restaurant options. Act 3 food was delicious. The food choices were delicious, varied, and fitting seasonally as need be.... Read More Everything was so fresh, so flavorful, and so good. I can't even count how many compliments we received on the food. And, to top it off, whoever said you don't eat at your own wedding was wrong! They MADE SURE we got to eat during the reception (even being so kind as to carry my plate for me so that I wouldn't risk getting my dress dirty!) AND we got to take leftovers in the limo on our way out. So great.

Amazing Food!

I've been to weddings with buffets, but none where they made it so beautiful! It wasn't just a bunch of warming dishes on a table with a table cloth, they added so much decoration that fit the theme/colors of your wedding. I have to say, the prime rib was a HUGE hit! It was... Read More the most tender and succulent prime rib that we have ever enjoyed! A perfect medium rare! My husband said the horseradish was the best he had ever had as well. The food was delicious and our guests were very pleased. I would say though that they did clean up the buffet a little too early. Some guests hadn't had an opportunity to get any prime rib because they were going to come back for it when they brought the next round out from the back. But overall, so very pleased with the level of service provided by Act 3. Shall I ever want to throw a party or have an event catered, I would definitely come to ACT 3 first. Thank you!

They are very professional and made the day extra special. Even though there was last minute seating changes, the team was very accommodating and quick to understand what needed to happen.

We went with the buffet and it was simply clean and organize set up from how they set the buffet area to basically waiting tables and filling waters/ beverages for the guests.

Act 3 was fantastic, from the beginning to the end of the process. They are professional and organized, which is a good thing because I was FAR from organized when dealing with them.

Seriously amazing! The food was incredible and the service was beyond what we expected. They were very accommodating and flexible with us in the planning process and walked us through each step.

We met with a few other caterers before meeting with Act 3 and the experience we had with them far exceeded the meetings with the other caterers.

We used this catering company for our wedding, and while the tasting was great, on the wedding day the chicken tasted dry and bland in comparison.

Management in coordinating our contract and ensuring it was executed was piss poor as well as their communication. Seven months prior to our wedding we visited and did a tasting of the menu with my fiancé, both sets of parents and my acting coordinator. At that time I... Read More specifically requested the gold rimmed plates. My contract states so. I purposefully selected these plates because my entire theme was white and gold. The plates I got were plane jane white! Huge disappointment especially since we paid an extra arm and leg for the gold flatware to match it!!! Beyond disappointed and truly believe the cost of the flat war should be refunded. I wouldn't have wanted it if I went with plane plates but I asked for the gold rim. Also deeply disappointed in the communication. I received an email more than 14 days prior to my wedding at 10:30am stating a head count was needed by 2pm that day. No one tried to call me, my mother, or my coordinator. My contract stated this information was due 14 days prior. My cell at the time could only make and receive calls so the email wasn't found until 6pm. When attempts were made to contact them the next day the gal in charge of my account, who had emailed me, was not in the office or available! What a joke and unnecessary heart attack! Three and a half hours to respond with a head count? More than the 14 day contract stipulation? Wasn't available, no extra attempts made to contact us. Needless to say I would not recommend this company to anyone solely based on management. However the food was good and the staff that worked the venue the day of our wedding were above and beyond amazing! Very attentive to detail and possible needs. Your staff makes you look good in their hard work to prep/make food and serve your clients. Step up your act Act 3 in management and guarantee the service your contracts state along with improving your level of communication! If it hadn't been so close to my actual wedding day, when that email was sent, I would've dropped your services. I honestly considered it at the time. Just terrible.

ACT 3 did a great job with our wedding! The food was delicious. My favorite were the Sausage stuffed mushrooms! I'm sad I only had 2! Ha- They were professional, organized, and extremely helpful. As soon as I arrived at the venue, the catering manager came right up to me and... Read Moreauyfcbefvrafaxtfuutwwtrufxwrzdburayxxw made sure if I needed anything. She brought me water right away and checked in with me throughout the evening. It was such a special touch that she made sure I was taken care of. The bartender quickly learned what my drink of choice was and if he saw me coming- he had my drink ready to go! Guests commented how wonderful the food was all night long and even now! Food for a large group is expensive, but ACT III makes everything worthwhile. They are very easy to work with- our guest count changed from when we booked to when we needed to give the final number; I appreciate that ACT III gives you the flexibility to make changes. Other caterers wanted us to be locked in to a number 1 year out! And then upcharged you if you changed. ACT III understands weddings and events; they were helpful and courteous and delicious!!!

These were one of the preferred caterers for our venue, and all of the other vendors for our venue said they were our favorite, so we looked into them first.

Read More pretty good job of setting the tables and decorating the buffet table to your wedding colors. It's nice that they have connections with a good priced linens supplier, so I didn't have to find a supplier to rent from on my own, one less bill. The coordinator I worked with was very helpful, though a little unavailable during the very busy wedding season. The service was great, and the servers made sure my husband and I sat down and actually enjoyed our food. We got a lot of compliments on the meal. One complaint we did get from guests though was that their wine/beer glasses were taken away when they were almost all full.
