    Amazing food and service!

    We simply do not have enough words to describe how AMAZING The Vault Catering was for our wedding. From the very beginning of the wedding planning process, they were so accommodating in sharing their availability, different menu options, etc. Once we narrowed down the menu options, they were so kind to offer a meal tasting! We seriously felt as though we were fine dining, and it was so great to be able to taste the food and pick the best before the big day! On our wedding day, the catering team was so kind, helpful, and professional! We received far too many compliments to count! Many of our guests went back for seconds, even thirds if they were lucky, scraping the trays clean! We feel so blessed that The Vault Catering was there to cater our wedding, and we will definitely use them again for future events! We can’t thank them enough!

    Sandra is amazing!

    We met with Sandra for the tasting. I was concerned about all my allergies and was pleasantly surprised that most all their dishes are gluten free or can be made with gluten free options. We are doing a taco bar and the food was sooo good! It was a beautiful presentation. She gave us some tips for ways to alter the menu to possibly save some money. She was upfront with the pricing breakdown and is a pleasure to work with. We put down the deposit for our wedding date to secure The Vault as our caterer. I will give another review after our wedding in March 2020.

    Wonderful Experience with the Vault

    We were incredibly pleased with the Vault for our wedding day. Throughout the whole process, Sandra was so helpful and easy to communicate with. The day of, the entire staff went above and beyond to make our day special, even helping us problem solve issues that arose and were unrelated to catering. Overall, the service team was fantastic and the food was amazing!! We ordered the Pacific NW buffet and everything was delicious. Our guests raved about how good everything was. Without a doubt, I would recommend the Vault to anyone!

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!).
