    Outstanding in everyway!

    Michelle and her team are outstanding. We enjoyed the process from start to finish. She answered all our questions and accommodated all of our requests to the last minute. The food was perfect. We had the tasting about 6 weeks out. We switched up the menu after the tasting because we wanted to showcase more of the fabulous ingredients they use. We knew that the food was an important aspect of the experience that we wanted to be sure we got right. Groovin' far exceeded our expectations. We chose to include signature drinks-they were a big hit. We also really liked that they offered local VA wine for our guests.

    Delicious food and even better service

    Groovin' Gourmets is the exclusive in-house caterer at our chosen wedding venue at Linden Row Inn in the heart of Downtown Richmond. Michelle, their catering manager, was a breeze to work with throughout the process. She helped guide us through menu choices, service styles, and many different guests needs to help make sure we had options for everyone in attendance even with allergies and sensitivities. On the day of the event, the Groovin' Gourmets team was on top of everything. Their team knocked it out of the park as they handled the set-up, turnover from ceremony to reception and break-down at the end of the night. It honestly felt like we didn't even have to lift a finger and their team was on top of the details before we could even think about it. They really made everything seem so flawless and that is attributed to the awesome planning of the details by Michelle and then the execution of their team. Kudos 100x over to the Groovin' Gourmets team, even if they weren't the exclusive in-house caterer at my venue, I would have chosen them to cater my event because they knew exactly what they were doing and their food was AMAZING (The lobster mac and cheese...just do it!)
