    Amazing food!

    Sassy Onion is one of our favorite places to eat breakfast, and their catered lunches and dinners are even better! From providing all our cutlery, serving our guests, and taking care of the bar, Sassy Onion is the best (and yummiest) one stop shop in town. We worked with Sara and she was always on the ball and very responsive to our many questions. You won't regret hiring them for your wedding!

    Sassy Onion's reply:

    Thank you so much Melissa! We really appreciate your kind words. Your wedding was beautiful and you were a pleasure to work with!

    We worked with Greyson at Sassy Onion and he was great! He was always very quick at responding to our inquiries which we mostly did via email (we preferred email communication). He gave great insight and feedback for appetizers and entrees for our reception. Our tasting was great and he made getting final details done very easy. At the reception itself, Greyson and his staff were super intuitive and attentive. All our guests LOVED the food. At one point, my aunt made our plates and brought it to us. I said to her that my now husband doesn't like salad on his dressing and out of nowhere Greyson appeared and said "Did I hear that you need an undressed salad? I'm on it." It was something small but to me it spoke volumes because I knew he was on top of things and that I didn't have to worry about a thing. Would definitely use them again.

    Sassy Onion did such an amazing job with our heavy apps for our small wedding. They were absolutely wonderful and delicious! Everyone loved all the food, but the canapes and stuffed mushroom caps were hands-down my favorites. Thank you for making our day delicious!

What can I say about Sassy Onion except that they ROCK!! I have been able to work with them and enjoy their food for years and I can honestly say that their event staff is nothing short of fantastic every time. If you are looking for delicious food served perfectly then look no further than Sassy Onion. They may serve "food with Attitude" but that attitude is fun and delicious!
