    Most Delicious Wedding Food EVER!

    My husband and I decided before planning our wedding that the food had to be amazing so we met with a variety of different, well known vendors to meet this requirement. Out of everyone, there wasn't a doubt in our mind that Root Cellar was a cut above the rest. From the initial tasting to the day of the event, the food was consistently delicious and they were able to easily accommodate the dietary restrictions of some of our guests. Our guest list had an insane mix of cultures and tastes, and they were able to meet every one of our needs regardless of the type of cuisine was requested. On top of all that, they handled our rentals for the event and worked with us to achieve the exact look we wanted at a very affordable price. If you love food and are slightly overwhelmed by everything you have to plan out for your event, then this is the easiest choice you will make!

    Fantastic caterer!

    We were thrilled with the quality and presentation of the food. Several guests remarked on how great the meal was. The tasting and booking process was easy from start to finish. They even added a beautiful fruit and cheese table! Our expectations were more than satisfied. Highly recommended - especially if fresh, farm to table food is important to you.

    Unexpectedly Amazing Dinner

    There are a ton of catering options out there. I’ll be honest, I picked Root Cellar because their prices were reasonable for a plated dinner, but more so because they were actually RESPONSIVE to emails, unlike so many caterers you will deal with. With that being said, the food for Root Cellar was outstanding. We don’t live in San Diego, so we took the word of our wedding planner that the food was actually good, as we never were able to do a tasting prior. Root Cellar was great about making some customized appetizers, which our guests still rave about to this day. They blew away my expectations for the plated portion of meal for the reception. The portions were generous and everyone (including the people who had the vegetarian option) raved about the food. Thank you Root Cellar for making our day that much more special!
