Best Seattle Special Occasion Pros

  • 2124 2nd Ave, Seattle • Belltown
    Liz Pearce - I'm addicted to escape rooms now, thanks to them.
    Ryan Bruss - This was an amazingly fun activity to do with my coworkers. I can't wait until we're allowed to go back and do it again. I hear they were also trying to add a virtual puzzle room. If they do, I'm definitely going to check it out.
    Patrick O'Donnell - We did this as a team building activity for our company and it was a blast. Really good production values, and challenging puzzles.
  • Kirby Winfield - Shannon made the session fun, loose, and efficient. And the results were outstanding - best family photos we have ever had!
    Sara Eizen - Shannon is amazing! Shannon has an incredible eye for catching special moments, is super friendly, great at engaging with kids during a photo shoot (adults too) and has such gentle manner about her that relaxes even the most uptight person. Shannon creates beautiful photographic memories that will last a lifetime.
    Adam Tratt - Shannon is an amazing photographer with an artistic eye and lovely disposition. Highly recommended.
  • 3621 Stone Way North D, Seattle • Wallingford
    Tom Laramee - Everything has been better since Sea Wolf opened up a location on Stone Way. Their bread is wonderful, as are their croissants (and other baked treats).
    Meredith Fife - The cheese pretzel rolls are amazing. A great location with a great atmosphere.
    Yaprak DeCarmine - I bought a loaf from their Capitol Hill farmer's market tent and ate the entire thing. Their baked goods are amazing.
  • 1818 E Madison St Suite D, Seattle • Capitol Hill
    Shauna Swerland Youssefnia - they do beautiful arrangements
    Omar Shahine - They do some really special work and offer a very personal touch.

  • 3421 Fremont Ave N, Seattle
    Steve Dossick - Simply Desserts on Fremont Ave makes amazing cakes with enough notice. We are always happy with their service.
    Arry Yu - Best desserts ever -- favorite and the way to my dessert heart is the white chocolate strawberry cake. We use it for birthdays. We had them for both our wedding cake and the groom's cake. Divine.
    Kelsey Lockard - Got two slices of the most delicious cakes ever! We tried the Lemon Coconut Cake and the Peanut Butter Chocolate one. She was so nice, even gave us a birthday candle because we forgot to get some!

    Meredith Fife - They make a fantastic Mexican Chocolate Pie. They also offer pie baking classes!
    Jacob Hollenbeck - We often order pies from here! We especially love the Apple Pie! What a gem of a place!
    Steve Carver - Amazing pies! Dangerously close to my house . . .

  • 607 Stewart St, Seattle • Belltown
    Keith Funai - They created a couple of arrangements for our opening party and they were amazing!
    Robin Warren - Gorgeous
    Heather Redman - They've been great. Super flexible with delivery a monthly arrangement for our elevator lobby and splitting the bill between 4 households. Also a great place to get pots for indoor plants (and plants themselves of course).

  • Omar Shahine - Incredible kids photographer. Has been photographing our kids and family for 7 years. libbylewis.com
    Douglas Pearce - Libby is a long time and much beloved photographer of events in our community. She uploads her photos to a website that is great for sharing the photos with your friends and family.
    Lora Shahine - Amazing with kids!
    recommended by Melinda Torres
  • 3650 Wallingford Ave N, Seattle • Wallingford
    Adam MacBeth - One of my favorite Italian places in town. Great neighborhood feel.
    Ali White MacBeth - The food here is authentic, fresh, and they change their menu so it’s not repetitive. Staff is informative and friendly. Harder for older folks or people hard of hearing.
    Darlin Gray - There's everything in the world to adore about this neighborhood gem, from the superior service and thoughtful, delicious menu to the lovely space and delightful bar program. Love!
  • 10. Gracia
    5313 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle
    Adam MacBeth - Hands down the best Mexican in Seattle! Amazing fresh ground corn tortillas and the best fish taco I’ve ever had. Great takeout option!
    Ali White MacBeth - The owner/chef moved to Mexico just to learn the regions cooking. He buys local and works with amazing people. The food is so delicious, fresh tortillas, etc but the fish tacos are really the indulgence. We love them!

Adam Doppelt Hey Ruby. By a strange coincidence I spent several hours last week looking into this same question. We are swamped too, busy parents with a busy family...

Most of the personal chefs I looked up have paused due to the lockdown. There's a natural hesitancy to work in other people's homes. I think some are transitioning to delivery, though that's a different setup and it may take some time. Not sure about Lesa, I meant to call but got sidetracked.

On the other hand, dedicated food delivery businesses are up and running. We are trying out a few as we speak. It's not quite what we were looking for but it might be the best option for 2020.

Ryan Burt the majority of restaurants on Ballard Ave now have street side outdoor seating. Also, it's more casual bar fare, but Pono Ranch is a great place to sit outside and have a cocktail and a meal. They also have a fire pit and some outdoor games.
Erika Yelle Ate outside this week in Georgetown at Ciudad Grill - everything was delicious ! ciudadseattle.com
Susan Stocker We ate yesterday at The Pink Door on their patio and the food was, as always, fantastic. They have nice flowers and it was a pleasant experience -- their verbena cheesecake for dessert is AMAZING! Like so so so good -- it's the kind of dessert you have zero guilt after eating as it was worth every calorie. You can do reservations on OpenTable -- just a warning: the table in the center closest to the water gets a LOT of sun. Wear a hat just in case, as you can't specify what table you want. View of water is blocked on the patio, but you can see a tiny slice!
