  • After having to change all our plans for our daughter’s wedding due to Covid, a friend recommended Root and Stem as our caterer. We made an instant connection and cannot say enough about how wonderful the entire experience was! We had a feeling the food would be phenomenal based on the sample menu that Craig provided. In fact, it looked so good, we didn’t change a thing! And we were correct! The food was amazing! Delicious and beautifully presented. But, in addition to the fabulous food, we had amazing, first class service. Craig paid attention to our requests, responded quickly to questions and concerns and made important suggestions that made all the difference for us and our guests. The evening of the wedding, Craig and his crew transformed the backyard into a beautiful private bistro that exceeded our expectations. The service during dinner was truly exceptional as was the cleanup afterward. I cannot say enough to thank them for making our daughter’s wedding a magical eve... Read more

  • We worked with Root & Stem for our wedding on 10/10/20. We decided to have a family only ceremony/dinner party at our home (backyard) with catering by Root & Stem. Craig was a dream to work with - it was easy to connect with him, he was very responsive to all our questions and comments, but most importantly, he truly cared about creating a special, food experience for us. He crafted a perfect and unique menu and even assisted with acquiring rentals (plates, glasses, napkins, etc) for the dinner. Craig and his team took care of all set up and clean up, we didn't worry about a thing. The presentation of the meal and the actual taste of the food, were simply fabulous. My father has never taken pictures of food in his life, but he took a picture of every plate of food that was served to us. To say we were impressed is an understatement! We plan to be repeat customers :)

  • I had the most incredible experience with Root & Stem Catering! Their service, professionalism, and their mouth watering food is what took our day to the next level! It’s been a week since our wedding and our guests are still raving about that braised beef and pollo con crema! Chef Craig was kind, very responsive, engaging and really took our preferences into consideration! He welcomed feedback & encouraged us to make changes if we really wanted! They were on time and were so easy to work with! They didn’t add any stress the day of. They were easy to work and plan with which was a delight. Even our food tasting was an incredible experience! They were so detailed and really made us feel special! You could never go wrong with Root & Stem! I’m ready to plan a party just to work with them again! 10/10

  • I can’t thank you and your team enough for making my son’s engagement party absolutely perfect. From the start of our planning discussions to the cleanup at the end of the night, you were all extremely professional, friendly, and helpful, and I couldn’t be happier that we retained you for this special occasion. I really appreciated your creativity and flexibility in developing our menu and constant responsiveness to my ideas and change requests. From the hors d’oeuvres to the desserts, we ended up with the perfect menu and everyone couldn’t stop raving about the quality, variety and presentation of the food. In particular, our guests (and especially the happy couple) were very pleased with the vegetarian options and how seamlessly all the food choices worked together. The meal was topped off by delicious desserts and the celebratory carrot cake was as moist and tasty as I’ve ever had (again, our guests all raved!) Everyone was also quite complimentary of your staff. ... Read more

  • Root and Stem is an awesome company that makes delicious food. Christina was awesome to work with and very responsive. She was super helpful every step of the way! She was also super flexible with some of the dietary restrictions. Our wedding day went seamlessly and everyone LOVED their entree option. My husband and I definitely made time so we could enjoy our meals. We highly recommend using this company!

  • Craig and his staff were so ridiculously clutch to our plans. When we initially tasted the menu, we almost cried. We had wanted a caterer whose food didn’t taste like catering and BOOM. Enter Root and Stem. The overwhelming feedback from our guests (including a chef) was our food was the best they had ever tasted at any wedding. Goal accomplished. Also we lived off the leftovers from our pie bar for a week and I wish I could treasure those pies always.

  • My husband and I recently got married in Maine by ourselves, and decided to have an intimate reception for our closest family and friends on 11/3/2018. We are so glad we chose Root & Stem to be the center of our celebration - they were the best! Our choice was reconfirmed as soon as I began chatting with Christina. She was beyond helpful, informative, quick to reply, and always willing to work with me. She went above and beyond to tweak our menu to meet all of our needs. She catered to our extensive dietary restrictions (no dairy, no nuts, no sesame), our preference of bacon wrapped dates instead of figs and still delivered a spectacular and delicious display of food. The day of was seamless because of her and her team! Our family and friends raved about how delicious, fresh and amazing our food was. Turnover between cocktail hour and our dinner was quick and easy, and her team ensured that everyone was taken care of throughout the evening. For reference: we had charcuterie, bac... Read more

  • Having Root & Stem cater our Sept. 22 wedding was by far the best choice we made. First, the food was incredible and was exactly the same as what we tried at our tasting. I have so many guest come to me and tell me, "This is the best food I've ever had at a wedding!". The planning process was an absolute pleasure. Our coordinator was organized, professional, had great ideas, and really cared about our event. The day of EVERYTHING and I mean everything went smoothly and according to plan. The staff was friendly, hard working, and just all-around very nice people. Root and Stem will forever by my catering go-to in the DC Metro area. I can't say enough great things about this company!

  • Our September 16th wedding had a fall seasonal/local theme, and Root & Stem was by far the best choice we made for our big day. We wanted the most important experience for our guests to be fantastic food, since we didn't have a big party with a DJ or band, which is not our style. Root & Stem succeeded. Our guests raved about the braised short rib served over sweet potato polenta. During the run-up to the wedding, working with Christina was easy. She was quick to respond to emails and worked seamlessly with our day-of coordinator. Craig, the owner, was present at our tasting, venue walk-through, and even on the wedding day, so we received Root & Stem's full attention. At the most important moment of our lives together so far, Root & Stem made our day. Thank you, Craig and Christina!

  • I highly recommend Root & Stem. We had them cater our wedding 6/17/17. Craig Currie and his team were all fantastic even starting from before the big day. We were able to invite another couple to do the tasting at his facility- which was excellent and beautifully decorated as well. After the tasting, I provided Craig with some of our preferences and requests for our wedding menu. Craig was 100% willing to adjust the menu to our liking and worked with me to add delicious gluten-free and vegan/vegetarian options to every course of the meal. The staff were all amazing, kind, and efficient. Our cocktail hour needed to be cut short due to the heat, and Craig's team served dinner early without a hitch. The food was excellent! We were so happy with the fresh and local ingredients used. Our guests kept telling us how amazing everything tasted all night and the next day. The place settings were beautiful, the food looked so perfect. And they did all this about 85 miles from their facili... Read more

  • This was easily the easiest event I've ever thrown. I wanted simple and elegant and flexibility on menu and I got exactly that! Deliveries were on time, staff was so helpful with everything that I was able to enjoy the evening. The food was delicious and we heard about it all night from our guests. I recommend highly Root and Stem.

  • Having amazing food at our wedding was the most important thing for my wife and I. We were lucky to have found Root and Stem, it was love at first sight! We had a cocktail style reception with a variety of small plates, a farmers market display, salad, and coffee bar. People did not leave hungry! The number one comment we received was about how amazing the food was. Everyone was really impressed! This is restaurant quality food, not typical wedding fare. Their presentation is impeccable, but their flavors are unforgettable. Two weeks later and people are still talking about how delicious and how much food there was. Gina was absolutely fantastic to work with! She was on top of everything and made sure we were taken care of from start to finish. She helped come up with really delicious cocktails that were a total hit with the crowd and really complemented the menu items. During the reception she ensured that everything kept running smoothly and checked in with us frequently to make ... Read more

  • Chef Craig and Root and Stem made our wedding day so special and memorable for our guests. They were so flexible and personal, which we really appreciated. Even though as vendors, they are likely juggling many events, Craig at R&S made ours feel special through the process. The dinner was amazing. Guests don't always expect much from wedding food, but our guests raved about the dishes. The menu was fresh and interesting, which we really appreciated. I highly recommend Root and Stem! It was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning

  • Let's just start here--our food was AMAZING! Our guests were raving about the steak, appetizers, drinks, etc. Craig was so easy to work with & super flexible. He basically created a custom menu for us, plus they use local ingredients and green practices which is important. Craig wasn't the best at responding to emails, so I found it was easiest to get in touch with via phone. In my contract with Root & Stem, I also had my choice of linens, glassware, and more from a rentals company. Craig was within my budget and I would definitely recommend him for other weddings in the DC area.
