Highly Recommend! Everyone is still RAVING about our food....
My husband and I recently got married in Maine by ourselves, and decided to have an intimate reception for our closest family and friends on 11/3/2018. We are so glad we chose Root & Stem to be the center of our celebration - they were the best! Our choice was reconfirmed as soon as I began chatting with Christina. She was beyond helpful, informative, quick to reply, and always willing to work with me. She went above and beyond to tweak our menu to meet all of our needs. She catered to our extensive dietary restrictions (no dairy, no nuts, no sesame), our preference of bacon wrapped dates instead of figs and still delivered a spectacular and delicious display of food.
The day of was seamless because of her and her team! Our family and friends raved about how delicious, fresh and amazing our food was. Turnover between cocktail hour and our dinner was quick and easy, and her team ensured that everyone was taken care of throughout the evening.
For reference: we had charcuterie, bacon wrapped dates, and trio of shrimp for hors d'oeuvres. Followed by a pear salad, beef short rib, stripped bass, roasted potatoes, glazed tri-colored carrots, and brussels with pomegranate.

The BEST in the DC Metro area!
Having Root & Stem cater our Sept. 22 wedding was by far the best choice we made. First, the food was incredible and was exactly the same as what we tried at our tasting. I have so many guest come to me and tell me, "This is the best food I've ever had at a wedding!". The planning process was an absolute pleasure. Our coordinator was organized, professional, had great ideas, and really cared about our event. The day of EVERYTHING and I mean everything went smoothly and according to plan. The staff was friendly, hard working, and just all-around very nice people. Root and Stem will forever by my catering go-to in the DC Metro area. I can't say enough great things about this company!

Our September 16th wedding had a fall seasonal/local theme, and Root & Stem was by far the best choice we made for our big day. We wanted the most important experience for our guests to be fantastic food, since we didn't have a big party with a DJ or band, which is not our style. Root & Stem succeeded. Our guests raved about the braised short rib served over sweet potato polenta.
During the run-up to the wedding, working with Christina was easy. She was quick to respond to emails and worked seamlessly with our day-of coordinator. Craig, the owner, was present at our tasting, venue walk-through, and even on the wedding day, so we received Root & Stem's full attention.
At the most important moment of our lives together so far, Root & Stem made our day. Thank you, Craig and Christina!
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!
