Best day ever.
Carol and her team did a fantastic job. The set up, decorations and THE FOOD was perfect. She and her also did my sister’s wedding last summer. The reception with Carol’s help made it a day to remember. She was also very helpful and accommodating during the whole process leading up to the wedding. Thank you again Carol!Sent on 03/14/2019
Catering By Vest's reply:Thanks so much for your great review. We wanted so much for a special day for you and your wife and now delighted that you feel that we did our job. It was certainly a wonderful compliment for us to do a second Abbott family wedding within a year. We wish you much happiness as a couple for always!

The food and service provided was one of the best parts of my daughter's wedding. Everyone raved about how great the food was. We almost ran out of food, not because Catering by Vest did not provide enough, but many people confessed that they went back to the buffet multiple times because the food was so good. Carol and her staff we very accommodating, helpful and friendly. They did an excellent job setting up and breaking down the venue. I would definitely hire them again!!Sent on 03/26/2019

Amazing Food and Flexibility
Carol and her team are amazing! Carol was very flexible with me and very responsive. She made me feel at ease once we confirmed all the final details. I really cannot thank her enough for working with me (especially so close to my wedding date). Catering by Vest truly made my wedding vision come true. Thank you!Sent on 01/17/2019
Catering By Vest's reply:Jennifer we were so happy to work with you in making your vision a reality. Thanks for allowing us to do so. We wish you and your husband much happiness in the future.

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.Sent on 07/23/2018

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.Sent on 11/15/2017

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.Sent on 08/29/2017
Catering By Vest's reply:We appreciate your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to work with you and Dennis on this event.

We are happy that your event at the lovely St. Francis Hall was so successful. We wish you much happiness in your marriage -- and please keep in touch. 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.Sent on 12/21/2017
Catering By Vest's reply:It was delight working with you on your event. We are so happy that we did not disappoint you. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your special event.

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.Sent on 12/28/2016

Sarika · Married on 06/09/2013
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!Sent on 06/26/2013
Amanda · Married on 04/27/2013
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.Sent on 07/08/2013

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.Sent on 04/25/2013

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.Sent on 12/21/2012
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.
Catering By Vest's reply:Thank you so much for your wonderful response. We indeed enjoyed working with both of you during the entire period of time. Your positive attitude and professional way of working with us really was a great plus. We look forward to the opportunity to connect with you in the future. Chef Thomas and Carol Vest

We could not have been more pleased with the service and professionalism of Vest catering. Most importantly the food was remarkable!Sent on 11/16/2012
Terrell · Married on 09/07/2012
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!!!Sent on 09/24/2012
Catering By Vest's reply:Thanks so much for those wonderful words. We are happy that we added value to such a beautiful event. Truly we wish you well.
Desaray · Married on 07/02/2012
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.Sent on 08/03/2012
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&VicSent on 07/12/2012
