About Herban Feast
We had our ceremony and reception at Sodo Park by Herban Feast. I loved that they took care of everything from food and drinks to lighting and extra décor rentals. They worked directly with my florist and photographer, making communication smooth and simple. The space was dramatic and warm at the same time, creating the perfect feel, and the flip from ceremony to reception was flawless. Everyone raved about the food and we were so glad they were organized about how to serve and structure the meal so that my husband and I weren’t starving and also got to taste the food. We had family style, and it worked very well – everyone ate at almost the exact same time, there was plenty of food, and it fostered more conversation. The bridal suite and grooms room were excellent additions for us, and we loved how the space fit our party of >200. I would recommend Sodo Park to any couple with a large wedding party!
Samantha Bowman, Sodo Park Wedding
Sodo Park was not only beautiful but the staff was also amazing!!! I could not say enough good things but here are some highlights: 1) The building itself is beautiful and doesn’t need a lot of added decor: We got married in February so outside pictures were off the table. Sodo Park had so many beautiful nooks and with different woodwork, windows, and pops of colors that the photographers had no problem finding lots of different backdrops for stunning photos. 2) The staff is very helpful: We worked with Ayisha throughout the planning process and she did an amazing job walking us through everything and making sure everything turned out how we wanted. At no point did we ever feel pressured to make a decision or feel like she was pushing add-ons. It really felt like she was there to help and not sell us things. 3) THE FOOD!: The food is phenomenal and very well priced. We looked at multiple caterers and everytime Herban Feast came in at the same or lower in price per person. 4) The ease of everything: Included in your quote is linens, tables, flatware, setup, take down, food and beverage, personnel, and gratuity which checks off a lot of items on the planning to-do list. The only negative is that they don’t allow for any outside food or beverage before the wedding while you are in the bridal loft and their options for those are quite expensive. However, it was nice to have that all setup before we arrived and didn’t have worry about bringing anything.

The venue was gorgeous and perfect for our wedding. Huge lofted ceilings, exposed wood beams. They offer a lot of options of ways to dress it up or down, such as draping and extras from the design studio located there. It’s owned by Herban Feast catering company, so you have to use their catering, however, it was absolutely delicious. We got so many compliments on how fantastic the food was. Pros: lots of options to decorate, food was delicious, receptions and ceremony in one place with an easy turnover, staff was wonderful to work with Cons: definitely a little on the more expensive side, but cost can vary greatly depending on extras you rent, decoration (draping), and menu for the reception.
Jillian K, Sodo Park Wedding
We used Herban Feast’s Sodo Park venue for our wedding on November 8, 2014. The Seattle location was key, as we wanted something in the city. Also vital was capacity; we had 225 guests. Lastly, good food was another priority and having tried their food previously, it was a no-brainer. The space is great – wood beams, a restored factory, and smaller lounge areas make this ideal for hosting guests of all ages. The staff at Sodo Park were great from planning to day-of staff. They make it easy and fun! Sodo Park and Herban Feast is a great way to go if you want a fun event that requires little coordination on your part. I did a lot of the decor and personalized pieces, but did not want to worry about food, linens, tables, flatware, etc., so having them handle those logistics let us truly enjoy the night!
Mari S, Sodo Park Wedding
We thank you so much for all of your efforts in making our evening a magical one. Every one is RAVING about the food and vibe and flowers. We were delighted with the food ourselves (after our initial tasting). It couldn’t have been any better. Loved all the color; it made the venue POP alive. You have been so nice and cooperative and we appreciate it. Hopefully, we will have another reason to have an event at SODO.
Cappy (Mother of the Bride), Sodo Park wedding
I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful event we had in September. You and your staff were fantastic to work with and we have had many great comments about the venue and the event. Marie was wonderful and all of your staff were extremely courteous and professional. The food was delicious! Once again, thank you for everything. I hope we will be able to work with you in the future.
University of Puget Sound, Alumni Reception
My wedding was last week on the steamship Virginia V, and I have to say that everything about Herban Feast’s service was outstanding. The food was beautiful, unique, fresh and so flavorful; and through some unimaginable wizardry, didn’t seem at all diminished by the last-minute two-hour delay in the sailing of the ship (and therefore serving timeline). The crew were perfectly attentive, gracious, and yet unobtrusive. I received a TON of compliments from my guests about the food, and heard that many went back for seconds. I chose Herban Feast because they were so highly rated, and I wanted great food and service that I didn’t have to worry about.
Jeanne & Chris, offsite wedding
I wanted to thank Herban Feast and especially Jonathan who came out for our catered event. Everyone raved about the food and its presentation, and Johnathan was lovely to work with. He was professional and friendly and cooked the meat perfectly. We’ll look forward to working with you again.
Ethan, retirement party
I wanted to thank you so much for all the work, energy, effort, and time you put in to creating an amazingly beautiful venue for Anna and Dan’s wedding!! I loved walking into the room where we ate….it was like walking into a dream! It was so beautiful and elegant! Thank you for all you did from the bottom of my heart! I know Anna was totally blown away by how everything looked!
Judi Mapel (Mother of the Bride), wedding at The Foundry with decor by Herban Design Studio
We have received many compliments from our guests and we agree with all of them. The venue looked wonderful, and the service and food were first rate. We couldn’t have been more pleased with it all–and would be pleased to recommend both of you—and the venue to anyone. It was very clear you took a personal interest in making it all come together. From all accounts, our guests thought it was beautiful and one of the best. That was our goal! Most importantly, Libby and Josh told us it all exceeded their expectations. Thanks again for everything.
