Everyone was so impressed!
After speaking to countless caterers, we decided to go with Forage. For many reasons, but mainly because they were responsive, understanding, and willing to work with our budget. We wanted to have cocktail hour canapés and dine family style for dinner, we had a lot of logistical questions about seating, the venue, etc. but all of our questions were answered quickly and effectively. The tasting at the Forage restaurant was superb! Any notes we had about the food and dietary restrictions were taken into consideration. However, what really stood out to us was how helpful and reassuring Allison was as the date crept closer. I must've sent at least 20 emails in the last few weeks with last minute changes (which I feel terrible about) but Allison handled them all with grace and patience. On the day of, all of the Forage staff were so friendly and excellent to our guests. We had a minor snafu in our schedule where dinner started 20 minutes earlier than planned, but Forage made it work and no one was the wiser. We had so many guests come up to us to tell us how much they enjoyed the food, and the guests with special diets were particularly grateful and delighted with their meals. I highly recommend Forage for any special occasion!Sent on 03/10/2019

The food was amazing! Everyone complimented us on how tasty everything was. We went for family style which I highly recommend. I'm honestly getting hungry just thinking about it. The staff was amazing, the bartenders knowledgeable. If you are looking at having local tasty West Coast food you cannot go wrong with them!Sent on 23/09/2017

From the very beginning it was clear that it had to be Forage. Food and service were at the top of our priorities and the Forage team didn’t just meet our (very high) expectations, they blew them out of the water from the very beginning.Sent on 03/10/2017
One of the things that makes Forage so special is the team of people that they have put together.
Allison the catering manager was a great person to have in our corner and working with her was effortless. Based on a few short conversations, she understood the vibe and ambiance we wanted at our wedding. She and the Chef worked with us to create an incredible menu that our guests still talk about. Julianna, the Catering Operations Manager brought her experience and passion to every aspect of the event, and went above and beyond to make sure that the event was flawless. You won’t find anyone harder working, more dedicated or more supportive than Julianna. Julianna and Alison also took the lead with a couple other vendors to make sure our day went off without a hitch and nothing was missed!
On the big day Julianna and her team delivered exceptional service; another frequent topic of conversation with our wedding guests. It was great to be able to relax knowing that with her crew our guests were being taken care of. Our wedding wouldn’t have been what it was without the Forage team, and we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.

The best of the best
We had tastings with 3 other caterer before we tried Forage at the recommendation of our photographer. After we had our tasting, we knew Forage was the right choice for us as we were big foodies. Margot, the General Manager, was so responsive the entire time and was able to get our menu tailored exactly to the way we liked it. The food tasted amazing, the portions were generous and they were able to customize everything for us. I could not recommend Forage enough. We will be visiting the restaurant often!Sent on 07/06/2021
