    Amazing Service and Flexibility

    Common Roots provided the bar for our wedding, and my wife and I couldn't have been happier! They were easy to work with via email and phone from out-of-state. The day-of they delivered right on time and were super flexible and independent, setting up and taking down seamlessly. Their service was great and added a lot to our guests' experience.

    Everything went off without a hitch thanks to Kate and the amazing Common Roots team. We used Common Roots for both Bartending & Catering Services.

    Throughout the entire process, Kate was extremely helpful and communicative about various milestones, decisions that needed to be made and my many changes up until wedding day.

    When it came to the catering we received many compliment on the food - from the overall presentation to simply the tastiness of the dishes. Even our gluten free friends were raving about how even they could find options to each. They were also able to accommodate the kitchen situation at our venue (Paikka) which could have been problematic to other vendors.

    As for Bartending, just as great of an option! With the liberty of being able to bring in our own booze they did just about everything else - Bartenders, Bar Fruit, Mixers, Ice, Glasses, Plastic Cups, etc. It gave us peace of mind knowing that they had that portion covered.

    Overall would highly recommend them to anyone looking for great food and great staff!

    I think we exchanged over 90 emails over the course of the year, including a few emails explaining that my partner and I decided to go with another caterer that was slightly less expensive. But the other caterer's communication was so unresponsive and messy that we came right back; CRC even helped us schedule a last minute tasting session while we were in town for the holidays shortly after this debacle. Leah and Monica were wonderful leading up to the wedding, and on the day of, all I noticed was everything running smoothly. The day-of staff were cheery. Guests we wouldn't have expected to love our all vegetarian meal still rave about the polenta. We loved working with Common Roots and were glad to support a business that supports local food and livable wages for their workers.
