Our nonprofit, Oregon Innocence Project, used Pearl Catering for our annual fundraiser.  I will never use another caterer!  The staff person, Katie Carver, was amazing.  She thought of every detail and I did not have to worry for a minute that anything was overlooked.  She made the whole event run smoothly, including the bar service.  The food was delicious, hot, and plentiful!  The servers were excellent and made the event seamless.  I walked away feeling so grateful that we’d decided to go with Pearl Catering!

Thank you for making our event so special!

Amie Wexler, Associate Director, Oregon Justice Center

This was by far, the BEST catered lunch we have ever had !!! Everyone is still talking about the delicious food and wishing they could take a nap this afternoon. Thank you so much for making this a fun and wonderful lunch gathering…we will be contacting you again in the future.

Cindee Egge, Holland & Knight

We wanted to say thank you for your excellent food and service you provided for our wedding. Everyone is still talking about how amazing the food was and how it was the best wedding food anybody had ever had! I have to agree! Thanks again, we appreciate it!

Jennifer & Aaron Reliford, bride and groom

Hello Annette, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping me set up one of the best parties we’ve ever had so far at Faithful+Gould (well since I’ve been here haha).  The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious and the staff was spectacular to work with. They made our night very enjoyable and were more than happy to help with everything that we requested. Our staff and most importantly, the boss-man enjoyed themselves! I had a great time myself and I can’t wait to comeback.

Anna Benicta, Executive Assistant Faithful+Gould

Hi Annette- We  wanted to thank you so much for making Sharni and Ryan’s Rehearsal Dinner so awesome. We had so many positive comments.  The venue was great—the food great, but most of all—-you relieved Ed and I of all the worries we had.  We wanted it to be special for Sharni and Ryan and it was—thanks to you!

Debbie, mother of the groom

Jaime, bride

Last Sat we had a great Open House event and Pearl Catering made a difference! Great teamwork with our employees and great food that was devoured by our members. Thank you so much for participating in our milestone event.

Elsa, General Manager, Mt. Park

Just wanted to echo the sentiment from the Mt. Park crew. Raves. Top to bottom, including from the in house caterer.


What a wonderful job was done last night with catering. The guys came with plenty of time for setup, they were just superb, very professional and fun! I had a lot of great comments from a ton of people there. They all thought the mashed potato bar was fun. A couple of people, like Amy with S’tile says she uses you all the time, and you are one of her favorites. I couldn’t recommend you enough, I mean it was just superb! You knocked it out of the park! Awesome food and fantastic staff!! -You will be our go to caterer. Hope to work with you soon!

Sue, Paul Schatz Furniture

I wanted to write you and thank you so much for catering our portfolio shows last week. You guys were an absolute hit! People loved the spread and it was definitely first class. We will recommend you to anyone in the Portland area. Talk soon!

Christin Palazzolo, Deborah Schwartz Reps

Thank you so much for the amazing food yesterday. The event was perfect and the food was wonderful! Your staff was also great and extremely helpful!

Thank you so much for doing such a fabulous job on my moms birthday party. She loved it and I wouldn’t change one thing. It was perfect!

Robyn Dillon

Thank you so so much for a wonderful lunch! Everyone was so pleased and kept asking me who did the food. Hopefully you get some more business out of this! Everything was so amazing and made the party turn out perfectly. Shawn (I believe that is his name) was very helpful in getting everything set up. Again, thank you so much for your service!! I will definitely keep you in mind next time we have a catered party.

Danielle Springer, Norwest Engineering

Thank you for a great evening. I truly don’t think things could have gone any better. Thanks again. As always, Go Ducks.

Hope, US Bakery

Everything has been great, everyone has rave reviews about the food – please pass that on to the chef. Also, we are going to want those chicken ravioli at the GM 2 day in December. Make sure Barbara gets those! Thank you and your team for being very accommodating to all of our changes and thank you for helping this be a great event!

Christi Krause, Nike

My husband and I held our wedding and reception at Urban Studio. I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience it was. Katie Carver was a pleasure to work with. Not only was she professional and answered all of my many questions, she was fun to be around and I enjoyed her presence at our wedding. I received compliments from many of our guests about the venue and the food. Overall, the wedding went perfectly, and I have the staff at Urban Studio and Pearl Catering to thank for that. I would definitely recommend the venue to anyone for a wedding or other event.

Heather Mayer, bride

I want you to know how valuable I think two of your catering employees are. Katie Carver did an outstanding job of managing our 25th Anniversary party under weather circumstances that would have tested a magician. An unwelcome 30 minute rain shower that arrived just as the food was set up in our yard for our garden party didn’t phase her or her helper, Avery. Without missing a beat, they moved the food inside while we scampered to cover the tables and chairs and run for the house. During the shower, they accommodated our guests with hors doeuvres inside. Then the shower passed, and they served the food inside, while taking care of our guests at the tables outside. I was impressed with Katie’s poise during the whole affair. She took charge, and she and Avery performed their duties efficiently, competently and graciously. Many of our guests commented on their flexibility, excellent work, and friendliness. What could have been an unpleasant experience for all turned out to be a wonderful time had by all, thanks in large part to the confidence and competence of Katie and Avery. Thanks to them, you have our future business and referrals. I request that you accept this commendation and include it in their performance review records. And I recommend that you give them each a nice raise in pay. They are your best advertisement.

Jason and I were so impressed. It was so delicious. I wish I could have eaten everything on the plate, but so much was happening.

Everyone loved the food! They can’t stop talking about it.

Czari, bride

Hi Annette, I just wanted to send you a note letting you know how much I appreciate all you did to make our holiday party such a complete success. My boss, who has been with the company for 16 years and has worked in many of the offices including the London, England office, said that out of all of the holiday parties he has gone to throughout his career, that this was the best!! The food was excellent and the wait staff were incredibly attentive. I can’t thank you enough! You have earned some definite return customers!! Thanks again!!

Lisa R. Curths

Thank you so much for all of your help during our multitude of events and film shoots this past year! You and the Pearl Catering staff have provided us with wonderful food and service each and every time we’ve called upon you. It is so nice to know that when booking meals, we are doing so with a company that not only carries a high level product but also has exceptional customer service. We are so happy with the relationship we have formed with you as a vendor and look forward to continued cooperation! Again, THANK YOU for everything!

Sarah Lawson, @Large Films

Wow, that is quite a crew you had there Friday night. They did a wonderful, flawless, perfect job. Thanks much.

Danni McLaughlin

I was just telling a friend about last night and I think the greatest compliment that can be paid is that we didn’t even know the staff was there they were so on the ball. Thanks again!


Thank you!! Food was great and got lots of compliments!!

Lexie, Pental Granite & Marble

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! Everyone LOVED everything. Your staff was FANTASTIC. They took the actors in stride and were friendly and so professional. Even the rice / noodle substitution worked out great, everyone loved everything! No one could stop talking about the pork. I admit, I think Dan and I got about a half a plate of the main course (there was PLENTY of food, just no opportunity to really eat it and savor it) but what we DID get to eat was fabulous. I have said it over and over again, but Carla was the best. She sold me more than just food for this party, she sold me confidence that I was putting the key element of the party into safe hands. And you certainly delivered well on what you sold. I think even James at the Tumwater room was very impressed.  I will post a rave WHEREVER you would like it posted. Let me know where you want me to send my glowing comments and I am happy to do so. I am so glad you were part of our party! Thanks again!

Angelique Brown, bride

Thanks Carla. I’ve been meaning to shoot you an e-mail all day. Everything went great, the servers were wonderful and everyone raved about the food. I will definitely call on you again. I’ve updated your info in our department data base as well. Thanks again!

Sally, Nike

Hi Carla- I wanted to drop you line about our catering order. The food was a hit with everyone. I love the fact that you deliver and your prices are so reasonable! I will pass your biz cards on to my Gourmet Group, and I will Definitely use your catering in the future.

Ann Sharma

Hi Rita, Thank you so much! Our reception was a huge success and the food and service was perfect. And all so very delicious!

Thanks for your help, and we hope to be back to use your services again soon.

All the best, Cathy
