I do not even know where to start when it comes to talking about how impressed I am with the quality of food and the service Sandra and her staff showed on my wedding day. When we came into do our tasting, we knew we wanted to hire The Vault before we took the first bite! The food was presented so beautifully for a simple tasting that I knew it had to be even better for the day of the wedding. Beyond that, Sandra's warm and helpful spirit really won us over. She was so flexible and willing to work with us to create a personalized menu for our wedding. My fiance and I both felt that rather than acting like a saleswoman, Sandra truly dedicated herself and her time into helping us plan our wedding reception and answering every little question we had. It is clear that she sees her couples beyond being clients and just another wedding. We decided to go with the street taco bar with chipotle chicken and the most amazing and flavorful carne asada I have ever had! I ate seven tacos on my wedding day-they were that good! We also wanted to come up with signature drinks for our guest to enjoy and the bartenders from the Vault made the most amazing maragritas and pisco sours! We also decided to have a late night snack at our reception and chose a chips, salsa and guac bar. Everything was so fresh and we found out that the chef made guac on site right before it was put out for our guest to enjoy rather than having it premade. The chips were also so fresh and warm! It was the perfect way to end our wedding reception and we know that all of our guest left with full and happy stomachs! Thank you so much Sandra and team!

The Vault was amazing at our wedding! We worked with Sandra and her team and everything was perfect. Leading up to the wedding, we were able to taste test the meal we were leaning towards and it was amazing! Sandra also drew up a map of our venue (since she had been there so many times for events) and showed us her suggestions on where things like the DJ should go, the dessert table, the bartender, etc. We went with her plan an that worked out flawlessly. In addition, leading up to the event, I emailed Sandra a number of times about little things such as how much alcohol we should purchase, and she got back to us timely and with a pretty accurate number. The day of was great. The food and desserts not only looked good, but I am still getting text messages about how good it tasted from my guests. They even packed up the leftovers so my husband an myself have a few meals for ourselves! I would book with the Vault 10 times again!

I used The Vault for my wedding at Thornewood Castle....and I couldn't have been more impressed. I didn't hey a chance to taste their food before the event, but it was unbelievabley amazing! They were professional and very responsive! Their staff was so easy to work with. I received many compliments from my guests how yummy their food was. The selection was great as well and plenty of food to go around. Will definitely use in the future if in need of a caterer!!
The Vault Catering is professional and experienced, but none of that matters if the food doesn't make the cut. And thankfully, their food consistently exceeds my standards, reception after reception. Not only delicious, it is well-presented. And in an industry that is all about the details, presentation matters. I would highly recommend The Vault Catering; they are good people who strive to exceed your expectations and delight your taste buds (as well as your guests' taste buds, too!).
Wonderful team and love their food. New venue is great too Highly recommend them Thanks
My absolute favorite catering company in Tacoma to work with! Sandra and her team are so helpful and professional, I always look forward to our events together!
