There was an error made on my quote that had the potential to cause major headaches with just three weeks to go until our wedding. Don Vonderhaar worked with us directly to help get things cleared up. He took responsibility for the error and worked to make it right. What was most impressive to me was how deeply regretful he was that the issue occurred. It is obvious that he invests a great deal of himself into his business. Don personally showed up to our venue on our wedding day to make sure everything went smoothly. We were so blown away by his commitment to his clients and to providing exceptional service.Sent on 04/09/2016
His catering staff were so wonderful to work with. Our captain, Wendy, called me a few days before the wedding to see if there was anything she extra she could do for us leading up to our big day. On the day of, the winds really picked up during our ceremony. There was Wendy -- without being asked -- holding down the sheet music for our musicians so it didn't blow away. Talk about above and beyond!
Dinner service went so smoothly. The food was FANTASTIC. Our guests are still talking about how amazing their meal was. Our bar tender was so friendly and did an amazing job taking care of our guests.
I am not going to lie -- I had some apprehensions about how everything was going to work out with Vonderhaars on our big day. But I can honestly say I would book them over and over again. The quality of service and food we received far exceeded our expectations. We would recommend this vendor without hesitation.

Excellent Food, Terrific Service, at a justified reasonable price!
Excellent service, plenty of food (we were no where near running out) and pretty competitive pricing. I constantly heard that Vonderhaar's had the connotation of being pricey. After we received our proposal we budgeted out a few other options and they really weren't that expensive. Service was phenomenal! and while they took great care of all of our guests, they paid very special attention to us (the bride and groom) and excellent attention to our family tables. If you are considering any level of professional catering service, you really should check them out!

We are so happy that we had Vonderhaars cater our wedding! The bartender was great, and everyone loved the dinner! We had a pasta buffet, with salad and garlic bread. Everyone was extremely happy with the service and I would definitely recommend them to all of my friends getting married in the future!

Rebecca and Evan · Married on 10/13/2018
This team was so exceptional and stepped in to help with any situation we had. They would check in with my now husband and I just to make sure we had everything that we wanted/needed all night. The bar was excellent with all of our guests and always professional. Would definitely hire these folks again.

Spanish tapas at Music Hall
When I approached Vonderhaar about doing some Spanish-inspired tapas for our wedding reception at Music Hall; they accepted the challenge with gusto! Jan was extremely warm and helpful with details, and chef Sergio created some amazing dishes that were a huge hit at our wedding... he even included some ham croquetas that came straight from his family’s recipe book. We were so happy to have chosen to work with these wonderful folks, and would highly, highly recommend!!!

Vonderhaar's is a Solid Choice!
Vonderhaar’s Catering was one of our best choices in selecting vendors for our wedding. They have such a great reputation in Cincinnati, and it’s evident why. We worked with Lori during the tasting and planning process, and she was extremely attentive to our questions and needs. We were impressed by the level of care Vonderhaar’s staff took end-to-end. The staff at our reception was beyond expectation – and, there were zero issues the entire night. Oh, and the food was GREAT, too!

Vonderhaar's recently catered our wedding and we were thrilled with them. From start to finish, Lori and her team were professional, efficient and so easy to work with. They accommodated all our requests and kept the reception moving with ease. This is so much more than just a catering company. I'd highly recommend them and look forward to using them again in the future!
Thomas · Married on 09/15/2018
The entire experience from the selection process to the served meal at an outdoor venue was professional and top notch. Many guests offered compliments on the high quality of the food and service.

Vonderhaars catering gets an A+ from this customer, from the scheduling of our first tasting through our event they were courteous, professional and flexible. Jan was exceptional with all of the details and Linda ran our event seamlessly. i would recommend Vonderhaar's to anyone needing a caterer for their special event.
Beth · Married on 09/02/2018
Excellent, first class service! Jan was so wonderful and patient to work with. She answered all my questions and sent me updated quotes as requested. The entire staff at the reception was exceptional- they kept the passed Hors D’oeuvre flowing and the tables bused not to mention they were very attentive to the bride and myself. The food was terrific, people are still commenting on how good everything was. I will use Vonderhaar's for all my catering needs in the future.
Nina · Married on 09/01/2018
First class all the way! Thank you!

True professionals that make wedding planning easy! The service from setup to tear down was beyond amazing. The friendliness and attentiveness of the staff blew me away. They made our wedding day a dream come true! The food was absolutely amazing as well. We received many compliments during and after our wedding day.
Tamara · Married on 08/12/2018
The staff was great from the start with selecting a menu and trying to keep things within budget, to the service at the reception. On top of how great they were to work with, the food was to die for! We had a few passed appetizers during the cocktail hour and a sit down dinner, and many of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had.
Lauren · Married on 08/11/2018
We had our rehearsal dinner catered by Vonderhaar's and it was the best experience! The food was great, ready on time, and enjoyed by everyone. The tasting experience was wonderful as well. I would definitely recommend Vonderhaar's catering to others.

Vonderhaar's Catering was very accommodating and professional. They wanted to make our event special for us.
Patti · Married on 06/08/2018
The tasting was a real treat with enough food for several full meals. It was a great way to try out several options. The ordering process was very easy. The follow-through and professionalism was refreshing. All the staff were very responsive. The event (a rehearsal dinner) was at Wiedemann Hill Mansion (which I would also highly recommend). When we arrived everything was set up and really to go. All the staff were so very accommodating and courteous. We were treated like royalty! We received several comments on the delicious, plentiful food. It was a very special evening indeed!
kayla · Married on 06/02/2018
From our first meeting with Jan to the wedding day with Lori, Vonderhaar's has been so accommodating, answered all our questions and made all the changes we requested and offered their suggestions when needed. I never once felt like the day wouldn't go as we had planned. People are still raving about the food weeks later. Very happy with our choice and would recommend to anyone looking for a wedding caterer.
Jennifer · Married on 06/02/2018
Loved the service and food. Did great job setting up and helping guest. Would recommend
Emily · Married on 06/02/2018
Vonderhaar was very professional especially when we did our walkthrough a week or so out. I felt like I was in good hands with how detailed they were in every aspect. They also went above and beyond when we found out that we didn't have enough tablecloths for some of the tables for the cake, gifts, etc. They REALLY came through and the food was FANTASTIC. I would recommend them to everyone who wants reliable, professional service and down right good food!
Ashley · Married on 05/26/2018
Everything was absolutely amazing! Everyone is still talking about how amazing the food was at our reception! Both the apps and dinner were even better than we expected! Thank you so much for making our day so tasty!
Lydia · Married on 05/20/2018
The service at our daughter's wedding was above and beyond our expectations. We were confident with their expertise and excellent professionalism every step of the way, from the set up, presentation of the food and prompt service with a smile. The entire event was well coordinated by the Vonderhaar's team. You sincerely made it a joy for us all !!
