    My, my, my... What can I say about Catering by Vest. They were absolutely wonderful! Carol Vest and I worked for months to get a menu that worked best for us. Carol and I communicated via email, text and phone up to the day of the wedding. Carol Vest absolutely surprised me with some of the services she provided at no additional cost. The food was OUT OF THE WORLD GOOD!!!!! Everyone enjoyed the food. I was hoping that food would be left over but it was so good there wasn't a crumb left! I highly recommend Carol Vest and Catering By Vest as a caterer.

    I contacted Carol of Catering By Vest to discuss my daughter’s 6/28/18 wedding and I’m so glad I did!

    From the tasting to the responsiveness to the service and the food - EVERYTHING was perfect!!

    Carol paid attention to every detail - we had special requests for vegans / vegetarians and 1 guest who was allergic to garlic! The food was not only DELICIOUS but looked GOOD! The fruit display was AMAZING!! The reception set up was BEAUTIFUL!

    Our guests KEPT saying how nice everything was!

    I can’t recommend Catering by Vest enough!!

    Catering by Vest met and exceeded my expectations for my husbands birthday celebration at Oxon Hill Manor. I planned this black tie event in two months and the Vest staff worked with me to make sure that my menu selections and presentation were executed flawlessly.

    Catering by Vest was fantastic to work with. The food was delicious and the presentation and service were very professional. Carol provided wonderful recommendations from appetizers to the main course. When we walked into the tasting, she had everything elegantly setup! She provided linen and china selections to complement our vision and the wedding décor was extremely beautiful!. Anyone who is looking for an caterer that will provide great food, beautiful décor at a reasonable price should book Catering by Vest :) Thank you, Carol.

    Carol was true to her word. Professional and kind. Chef prepared delicious appetizers and entrees that were (according to guest) out of this world. Wait staff couldn't be better. Clean up, went off without a hitch. Catering by Vest has my highest recommendation. As a busy Executive I needed a catering company I could count on. They fulfilled their mission and then some. The drama thank the Lord was not from our Caterig company but rather from our DJ. Staff handled even that with finesse. hats off to Caterig by Vest.

    It was a pleasure working with Ms. Carol and the Catering By Vest staff. Knowing the catering aspect of my wedding was in good hands provided me the peace of mind I needed on that day. My guest raved about how excellent the food was, which pleased me even more. I would recommend Catering By Vest to all my friends and family for future events.

    Thank you Ms. Carol and Happy Holidays to you and Family!

    My husband and I are not a typical couple as we are both very unique. Our wedding theme was the combination of his likes and my likes to signify the joinging of two people as one. CBV rose to the challenge as we did not go for a traditional meal. It was a combination of his favorite food and mines. It was just as unique as we are. The food was wonderful and worked so well together that they actually complimented one another (just like us!). Everyone is still talking about the great quality, taste, and flavor of the food. If the rating could be higher believe us they deserve a 10+. They will be catering our daughter's Sweet Sixteen in October so we are looking forward to some more great food!

    Catering by Vest was a great selection for us. After meeting Carol for our tasting we knew the food would be good, but the food served on the wedding day blew us away. It was delicious and the service was great. The Vest team was efficient in setting up and transitioning seating between ceremony and reception. Their focus on serving the sweetheart table first (even though we had a buffet dinner) was a really nice touch. They really did a great job with such an important part of our big day.

    CBV is top notch! Our wedding was April 6, 2013 @ 6:00pm. CBV arrived at the venue minutes earlier than planned...that's an awesome thing for a bride to see - the catering company arriving earlier than originally planned. Their staff was absolutely amazing - very professional, great customer service. Oh, and did I mention the food - the guests are still talking about the great food! It is safe to say that my husband and I will be using CBV for all upcoming events.

    Thanks CBV!!!!

    My wife actually found Catering By Vest here on Wedding Wire. We got in contact with them; they were very responsive and worked with us starting from November 2011 until our wedding day: Friday, November 23, 2012.

    The attention to details, coupled with the immense experience and professionalism that was implemented by Catering By Vest was impeccable.

    Our family and friends talked profoundly by the lusciousness of the food at our wedding.

    Chef Thomas and his entire staff truly surpassed our expectation. We’re very elated to have had them as our wedding caterer.

    And we look forward to working with them for all our future catering needs.

    I wish I could rate Catering By Vest higher than this!!! This company is by far the best at what they do, from the food which our guest are still raving about, the professionalism they protrayed on our wedding day was over and beyond, and Mrs. Vest herself who I will hold near to my heart is the heart of this company. My day of coordinator who was suppose to keep me calm and handle all of the miniture fires that arise was a serious let down however; Mrs Carole came to me and knew I was not happy with the decor. By the time I came down the stairs to get married the venue was breathtaking. The decor this company does along with the food is worth every penny!!!

    Mr. and Mrs. Vest were great! They were very understanding and professional when we didn't really know what we wanted for our wedding. They clearly explained all our options based on our budget with no hidden costs. Also, they were super patient with us when we ran into some financial issues. They didn't hound us or act inconvenienced when we needed to make some changes based on our budget.
    On the day of the wedding the team was on time and worked hard they even helped to set up our (very simple) centerpieces.
    Finally, Mrs. Vest was a great help not only with the food but also with making sure that the day's events went smoothly. She was there the entire day to explain any changes and give us updates on her people's work.
    Mr. Vest was in the kitchen and ready to offer his congratulations at the end of the day. He and his associates were working hard and were quick and efficient in cleaning up.
    My husband and I didn't really get to eat much and the Vests kindly made both of us a full plate of food to take home.

    In all, Catering by Vest was amazing. My husband and I are truly grateful for the experience they provided.

    Catering By Vest did a fantastic job and we couldn't have been happier with our evening. Numerous guests told us how much they enjoyed the dinner, appetizers and desert. Catering By Vest staff went out of their way to accommodate us and delivered on every promise they made - they executed perfectly our vision for what the room should look like and how the evening should flow. Chef Thomas and his wife Carol are the best! We were extremely happy with Catering By Vest and highly recommend their services! Micki&Vic

    Chef Thomas and staff are amazing. We had never dreamed our wedding to be so magical and flawless. Our guest were awed with the beautiful presentations and DELICIOUS culinary work. From start to finish Chef Thomas and Carol will take the vision of your special day and make it come to life. The both of them will put there many years of experience to work for you. Carol will have a consultation with you about the type of event you are looking for. She does a great job at getting all the details small and big. Carol will even help you with giving you the best layout plan for your venue so you are using every space available to accomadate all that you want for your wedding. Chef Thomas has the Culinary side of the team. He knows food and will tell you all about the many senses he is always trying to satisfy when he is producing his art. I say art because it is beautiful when he displays it and your guess will be asking for seconds if not a third serving. The appitizers started it our event and there was plenty flowing as his staff served our guest. Just when you think that you have seen all the selections you choose ahead of time the Chef will surprise you with something different that will have your guess asking "what was that? It was delicious". Please do yourself a favor and ask for the sweet potato tart. As for the dinner, it was amazing. The dinner was 5 star quality. Starting out with the aromas coming from the kitchen it caught everyone's attention. Second, the presentation with the vegetables cut in different patterns and designs was awesome. Somebody has great knife skills. Last but not least the overall taste of everything was superb. The taste of this food is so good that you would have thought a world renowned Chef had prepared it for President Obama. Our overall experience with Catering by Vest was outstanding and we would recomend them to everyone who wants to have an event big or small. They will make your event one that will be remember forever.

    Cater By Vest is the BEST!!! From our initial consultation to the execution of the event we recieved the royal treatment. Mrs. Vest is such a lovely person, she offers the perfect introduction to a very professional and responsive experience. I must have flipped flopped betwen ivory and peach dinner napkins maybe 5 or 6 times. Mrs. Vest was very patient and kind. Our table settings and decor looked fabulous!! Chef Thomas....everyone raved about how flavorful the food was on our wedding day! Even the wait staff/servers were incredible, consistant with the same quality of service that we recieved from Mrs. Vest and Chef Thomas. Most importantly to my husband and I, they offer flexibilty with the budget. If you are looking for personable service and GREAT food for a reasonble price... look no further Catering by Vest offers it all. Yummy!
