Don't even hesitate!!! Call them now!!

From day one, Root Cellar Catering was on top of everything! From the menu to the tasting, to the day of planning to the execution of the event! They consistently amazed us with their professionalism, their love for food and pride in everything that they do! Vanessa was so thoughtful in helping us decide what we wanted and how to make it all work with the space we had rented for our wedding! The food was incredible! We had everything from chili to tacos to mac & cheese! We had a spreaaaaaad!!! Chili was the biggest hit of the night since it was quite cold when we got married! It hit the spot!! Also definitely add the late night snack! We did milk and cookies and the Chicken & Waffles... WORTH IT!!! Do not hesitate one more second!! Call them now and book your tasting!! You will not regret it!!

Root Cellar is fantastic

First off - the food for our wedding was delicious, and all of our guests loved their dishes. Root Cellar catering was easy to work with, and their crew was highly professional. There were no issues the day of our wedding and managed to accommodate our guests' needs. Leading up to the wedding, both Vanessa and Megan were great to work with during the tasting and planning. They were both patient and understanding while we scrambled with many other details. Overall, I would highly recommend Root Cellar for wedding and other events. They are professional and great at what they do, and it gives you peace of mind when planning and coordinating a big event.

Wonderful experience, delicious food!

Vanessa and the whole team at the Root Cellar were absolutely fantastic! We originally went with them because we love supporting woman-owned businesses whenever we can, and because their pricing was very reasonable next to their competitors. And we're so happy we did! They really listened to our vision and made it a reality.

Vanessa put so much thought and time into our wedding, responding to our countless emails, taking our phone calls, and sitting with us at our tasting. The food was also terrific! Our guests are still raving about how delicious everything was, especially the salmon.

Working with the Root Cellar was just an all-around great experience. As vendors, they were easy and communicative and as people, they were just the sweetest. Thank you all so much for helping make our wedding day as beautiful as it was!
