The Best!!

We worked with Salthouse for our wedding at Alhambra Hall. Jacqueline French was our main point of contact and she was awesome! Throughout the planning process she was extremely prompt with communications and after our tasting there was no doubt in our minds about selecting them for our wedding reception. We also appreciated that they were familiar with our venue since it does not have a full kitchen. We felt confident in their plan to bring a mobile kitchen and the day of I honestly would have never known! The food, the staff, and the service thoroughly exceeded our expectations. My #1 item when planning our wedding was to have incredible and memorable food, especially since the majority of our guests were coming from out of town. We heard rave reviews throughout the night, and even two months later are still hearing compliments about the food at our wedding. We so appreciate Salthouse's professionalism and culinary talent. It was also a nice surprise to receive a box of mini desserts after our wedding because we did not have a chance to have any the night of! We definitely recommend Salthouse to anyone looking for amazing food for their wedding!

Great Food and Service!

We had the BEST experience using Salthouse Catering for our wedding. The food was amazing and Jacqueline was very professional and easy to work with. From answering my dozens of emails (and I mean dozens) to helping customize our menu and serve ware, Jacqueline left me feeling fully confident in her team on our wedding day. The food was just as amazing as it was at our tasting, which was a wonderful experience in itself, and everyone is still complimenting it!

The best wedding food!

Salthouse Catering are an incredible team and we had a wonderful experience with them for our 4/8 wedding. From start to finish, they were so communicative and professional and they helped us so much in narrowing down our menu. Honestly selecting the food was a challenge because of how delicious everything they serve is! The food was impeccable on the day of and every single guest of ours has raved about how good the food was. I鈥檓 still dreaming about that butternut squash ravioli and all of the passed appetizers. Do yourself a favor and stop considering any other caterers and just book Salthouse! I鈥檓 literally hoping my engaged friends book Salthouse so I can eat that food again.
