Editorial review from Citysearch 9/7/2012

I just found out that they steal tips from their employees a mass exodus of experienced staff has just walked out. more

Excellent Caterer 1/27/2011

Our committee is scheduling our next dinner auction at the Tiffany Center because we had the best ever results for our annual fundraiser. It was very easy for us from the minute we booked. Rafati's took over, helped us with some detailed planning - from load in to load out there were always one step ahead of us. The food was delicious and we had many favorable comments comparing how good it was this year compared to auctions before. The food was delicious, pretty on the plate but best of all HOT. Since our group is over 300 people that is a great accomplishment in my opinion. I think if they are this good for such a complicated event - they must have it all dialed in. My favorite was the dessert bar which was unbelievable! We opened it at the close of our auction before check out and you should see this, a river of dark,smooth chocolate with all kinds of little desserts. more

Saved My GRASS! 7/2/2010

Forgot my anniversary. I already knew I wanted to do a private picnic fat Lacamas Lake but forgot to make a plan. I called Rafati's because I work two blocks from their kitchen and they helped me out. I went home with what my wife called the most beautiful basket of food, they gave me wine to match and my wife and I headed out to the park. I was really happy that I didn't screw that up! Pros: Nice People, Know Their Stuff more

Best Experience Ever 3/5/2010

I am from out of town and did all of my preplanning with Rafati's over the phone and by email. It was so easy. They helped me with everything on my wedding task list and had some terrific referrals for florist, bakery, hotel, just absolutely everything! My wedding was a dream, everything just happened. The food was beautiful and delicious and Nazli was so helpful. I can't say enough good things and only wish I lived in Portland instead of Burbank so I would have more ocassions to order catering from them! Pros: Very Experienced, Helpful, Fun, Fantastic Food more

Impressive Work 12/10/2009

We did a picnic through Rafatis last summer. The picnic was well done. But my recent experience working with them for our Christmas party was impressive. I needed to feed vegans and the rest of us and had several gluten issues to consider as well. The food was excellent. Most important for me in my scheduling crunch was that the party took maybe an hour of my time. They did everything, including some decorating that you just don't see every day. I will use them again. Pros: Took very little of my time. more

Fourteen Holiday Parties For Us! 11/7/2009

I am taken aback by some of the posts here - ridiculous that a company can be irresponsibly defamed. Rafati's has done our last 14 holiday parties and done an excellent job of it. We are scheduling #15 and really looking forward to it! Pros: Creative, Professional, Great Food more

Great Picnic Company 5/22/2009

We did our annual company picnic for employees and celebrated their children graduating from high school and college. Rafati's handled everything including rentals, games and transportation. I was very satisfied with their performance. The food was outstanding. They roasted a whole pig for us and had all of the side dishes we could possible ask for. Everything was fresh and delicious. I highly recommend them, very professional. Pros: Food, Service, Fun more

Highly Professional 2/21/2009

I am an event professional who hired this company to provide upscale catering services to an important client. Pros: Professionalism, Service, Great Food more

Inauguration Party 1/23/2009

What a fun party! I was completely awed by their dessert table - I confess I took some of their lights, hope they don't miss them but they were too cool to pass. There was some chocolate and some caramel, hot with stuff to dip. Hard to describe but completely different than those fountains. Really stellar. Pros: Fun, Impressive, Well Organized more

Excellent service & food! 12/10/2008

Rafati's Elegance in Catering has provided the food and service for our Holiday Parties for the last 3 years because of the quality of the food and service. Since we have our parties on-site at our offices, it has been a blessing having Rafati's cater our events, as they provide all-inclusive service - food, beverages, desserts, servers, and even complimentary table coverings and decor. The servers are professional and courteous and Georgia always manages to make our menu something spectacular! Each year, she helps us create a unique menu, designed to fit our theme and budget. Georgia is fantastic to work with; I only wish we had more occaisions for them to cater! A wholly satisfying and delicious experience! Wouldn't use anyone else! more

Dream come true... 9/19/2008

I was married at the Tiffany Center in May and loved the food, the room, all the staff (Thank you, Jessica and Georgia!) and I had a magical and worry-free day. I did appreciate that time but I came to appreicate it much more when attending a friend's wedding in August at another location. I was singing Jessica's praises all day! Pros: The Food!!!, experienced planners with personal help, beautiful setting Cons: Only getting married once? :) more

Best Experience all the Way! 7/25/2008

My husband and I worked in the Restaurant and Hospitality business all our lives and appreciate the good work Rafati's Catering are doing each time. Pros: tasty food, good service, great ballrooms more

For a Wedding like in the Movies 7/23/2008

Georgia Rafati and her daughter Jessica helped my son; Christopher Nelson and new daughter in law; Mandi fashion a wedding at the Tiffany Center that was the kind that brides dream about and movies are made of. As the benefactor of this wedding, the betrothed couple included me in much of the planning, which was fun. We used the Tiffany Center, and we had the ceremony and the reception in the Crystal Room. The room was divided for the ceremony, and the stage was used for their vows. After the ceremony was over, the gathered friends and family exited out into the foyer for the reception line, and then re-entered the Crystal Room from another door for the cocktail hour and appetizers. The dividing wall was pulled back and the tables moved and chairs set up and head table, and we had a dance floor. All of this was done seamlessly, with both Georgia and Jessica in attendance. They butlered appetizers during the cocktail hour, the father of the groom sabered a bottle of champagne, we had a special 9 liter bottle of cabernet that they decanted and served throughout the evening, we had guests from Germany that required a piano for them to perform during the reception, and there were muscians to co-ordinate during the ceremony and reception, and a disc jockey for the dancing. The food was delicious, their presentation at our dinner and appetizer buffets was elegant. I had guests telling me that this was truly the first time that they had ever been to a wedding that was just like in the movies! People did not leave early. The dance floor was always full. I can not imagine a more perfect memory for my sons wedding, which is bittersweet, because I have one more bachelor son that has yet to marry, and I worry that when he does, his wedding can only pale to the memory I have of the Rafati wedding at the Tiffany Center. The food by Reza Rafati was to die for, consider yourself lucky if you get booked with them. You can call me; Patsy Nelson @ 503-524-3902 anytime. Pros: Ambience, Service, Quality of Food, Linens, Chair Covers, Presentation, Professionalism Cons: Not one thing more

The Best 7/16/2008

We had a beautiful reception catered by Rafati's at Tiffany Center. We rented the Crystal room, which is such an elegant ballroom. Our experience from the time we booked our venue was nothing but friendly and professional. Pros: Knowledgeable, great food, friendly and helpful more

One hurt Brides thoughts 6/25/2008

If i could go back to a few months before my wedding, i would not have had my wedding reception at a place that required me to use Rafati's Catering. I would have rather served cold finger sandwiches than deal with Georgia again. Pros: The did show up with the food Cons: GEORGIA!! Prices. more

Kind, Easy To Work With 5/12/2008

My mother passed away recently and my sisters and I wanted to celebrate her life Pros: Good food and nice people to talk to more

Excellent Results 5/5/2007

This caterer provided a luncheon I attended last year and their food was very good. I hired them this year to cater my wedding reception. I am impressed with their organization. Everyone I met seemed to focus completely on me and seemed well versed in the details I had planned as we went along. I only wish my florist kept track of my wishes as well. Pros: Georgia is the Queen of Fabulous more

Excellent Caterer 3/13/2007

Rafati's obviously knows the ins and outs of corporate requirements. I can't say enough about the Pros: Very high quality food, staff knew exactly what to do, I didn't have to change anything more
