    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!

    Amazing Wedding Caterer in Austin & The Surrounding Area!

    Root Cellars Catering was a pleasure to work with for my couple's wedding in June 2021! Vanessa was great during the booking and planning process. She was super helpful with all of our questions and answered them in a timely manner. The Root Cellars tasting was absolutely amazing and the couple loved having the chance to meet with head chef Megan who we were also lucky enough to have on-site for the wedding. Guests loved the food and everything came out as planned. They also were great about taking care of our dietary restrictions and wedding vendors. On-site, event lead Sydney and her team were super hospitable. They took wonderful care of the guests and were extremely helpful. The Root Cellar bartending team were also incredibly friendly. It was so nice to know everything was handled day-of. Excited to be able to refer more couples to Root Cellars and work together with them again in the future.
