I highly recommend Root & Stem. We had them cater our wedding 6/17/17. Craig Currie and his team were all fantastic even starting from before the big day. We were able to invite another couple to do the tasting at his facility- which was excellent and beautifully decorated as well. After the tasting, I provided Craig with some of our preferences and requests for our wedding menu. Craig was 100% willing to adjust the menu to our liking and worked with me to add delicious gluten-free and vegan/vegetarian options to every course of the meal.

The staff were all amazing, kind, and efficient. Our cocktail hour needed to be cut short due to the heat, and Craig's team served dinner early without a hitch.

The food was excellent! We were so happy with the fresh and local ingredients used. Our guests kept telling us how amazing everything tasted all night and the next day. The place settings were beautiful, the food looked so perfect. And they did all this about 85 miles from their facility (the wedding was in Luray, VA).

The price matched the service and quality that we received. I highly recommend R&S!

Craig and Tatiana with Root & Stem were extremely professional, helpful, flexible, and honest throughout the catering process. From the initial tasting to the day-of we couldn't have asked for anyone to take care of our big day any better. Not only was their customer service unparalleled, their food is fantastic! Most weddings we attend, we don't expect the food to be memorable, but Root & Stem's was. We have received so many compliments on the food from our guests. They also source all of their products from local farmers, which adds to the freshness and sustainability of their food.

We would recommend Root & Stem to any of our closest friends and family without hesitation.

For reference, we had their asparagus salad, prosciutto flat bread, beef short rib, Arctic char, fingerling potatoes for dinner with passed hors d'oeuvres and charcuterie & hummus platter during the cocktail hour.

I had the privilege of working with Craig and his team at a lovely farm wedding! This was my first opportunity to work with Root and Stem and I must say I will be recommending them to others. First off...Craig creates amazing farm to table dishes which were fresh and delicious. Not only was the food tasty but it was presented beautifully! The wedding couple chose a more family style approach to their service and Craig and his staff executed seamlessly! Not only was Craig a delight but his staff was equally attentive and sweet. They were just people you enjoyed being around and working with. I am grateful for the opportunity to work together and look forward to serving with them again!
