Not impressed with the behind-the-scenes people. It was extremely difficult to get a response. I also felt like they were unwilling to work with me. The week before the wedding, I was told they would send me an invoice before the wedding. It was never emailed (a running theme through the planning). The week after our wedding, the contact at Vinwood emailed me the invoice and asked if I had paid it at the wedding. She knew the answer to that question since she had not emailed it to me before. It also included charges for chairs that had not been on the original invoice and that were not needed the day of the wedding. If they had sent the invoice the week before the wedding like they said they would, we would have noticed that. I asked that they take the charge off since we did not use the chairs and they would not do it.

The day of the wedding was great though and the servers at the wedding were wonderful. I still think that if I had it to do over again, I would go with another company. I would not recommend working with Vinwood. They were the only vendor we had any trouble with.

Our experience with Vinwood Caterers was like a roller coaster - some amazing highs and disappointing lows.

Let me talk about the highs - if your primary goal is to provide your guests with DELICIOUS food. (Yes, GOOD wedding food actually exists!) Then hands down, choose Vinwood. The menu we developed with their team was fantastic from its creation to production - our guests couldn't get enough of it! They use local food, prepare fresh onsite, and combine unique flavors. A-grade!

On the flip side, their professionalism and quality of service (as in communicating with clients and serving guests), not so much. First let me state that we got passed around like a hot potato - we initially began planning with one representative....then emails got forwarded to Rep #2... then we met with Employee #3 (upon arrival was not who we were supposed to meet with....that meeting also was a disaster and very unproductive)... Then our final walk through with the venue was with Person #4....and lastly the night-of coordinator was representative #5. When one is planning something as big and important as a wedding, communicating your vision and getting it come to life should not be coordinated and organized by 5 different individuals - this was worse than a game of Chinese Whispers. And of course come wedding night, numerous visions were not executed to the standards we hoped they would be. We understand that a wedding reception is a lot of work and that things never run perfectly as planned. But when your guests' placecards or flowers are not put out on tables prior to guest arrival (and your family members are scrambling to do so), that's embarrassing and disappointing as the client. (We even previously offered to provide family/friend assistance prior to the reception start to ensure everything was done on time!)

We hope our experience is a one time thing and future couples are treated with the professionalism clients deserve, as this company provides some top notch food!

Working with Vinwood was super easy, and we got A LOT of compliments on the food. The braised short ribs were fantastic! My one regret is that we weren't able to have a tasting before selecting our menu.

Vinwood was amazing. My brother had used them for their wedding, so we used them for ours, and we are so happy we did. They were amazingly professional, and the food was amazing. We were able to meet with them to discuss the particulars for the wedding, and, since I am a vegetarian, we wanted a menu that would fit my carnivore guests, as well as reflect my vegetarian personality. The food was delicious, and the menu was great. I even asked if they could make quinoa, which was not on the menu, and they made it happen. We also wanted Challah bread, since it was a Jewish wedding, and they were able to accommodate. They can do anything! Definitely recommended. We did not give them 5 stars across the board because sometimes they were a little slow to respond, but in the end they were great.

Vinwood is outstanding. Rick is down to earth and really worked with us to stay within our budget. We feel that the pricing very reasonable when compared to the quality. Our guests cannot stop raving about how delicious and beautifully presented the food at our wedding was.

Vinwood catered my January 2016 wedding at the Italian Community Center in Beverly, MA. and they were awesome. Not only was the food amazing they also provided all the table linens and set up the entire hall. Obviously not being there when they first got to the hall and in the bridal room the rest of the time I had nothing but trust in them. Everyone loved the food and they had plenty of substitutes for my guest with allergies. During cocktail hour while we were having our photos taken we had our own personal waitress with the appetizers. Leading up to the wedding their responsive time was great. Always available through email and phone and would get back to me within 5 minutes.

Vinwood did a spectacular job of making our brunch wedding a reality. We were a little nervous going in since we couldn't sample our food beforehand but Vinwood was so responsive and supportive of our overall vision (and food inspiration we found from Pinterest!). For appetizers we had: Cinnamon Roll Pops, Bacon on a Stick, French Toast with Maple Syrup Shooters, Mini Quiches and a muffin/scone station. For Brunch stations we had Prime Rib & Arugula Salad, a Crepe Bar, Bagel Bar & Eggs Benedict station. The best part was how accommodating they were with food allergies. My husband has a gluten allergy and myself a cow dairy allergy and they made sure there were options for every diet restriction. We also still receiving raving comments about the food.

Vinwood catered our October 2015 wedding at The Hellenic Center. From day one, we worked with Mackenzie, who was absolutely amazing. She was organized, had great recommendations and was extremely personable. She went out of her way to meet us at times that were convenient for us and work within our budget. We were so excited for the wedding day after attending one of the tastings since the food was so delicious! On the day of our wedding, the staff was so professional, organized and all the food looked and tasted amazing. We chose stations for our wedding and it couldn't have been more perfect. The food was fresh and there was plenty available that nobody left hungry. They were great about coordinating pricing quotes for our special requests - from specialty table cloths to mini cannolis! They were also very accommodating of allergies and we didn't have to worry. Additionally, we were assigned a special staff member to take care of my husband and me on our wedding day - which is an elegant touch and made it easy for us to take the time to actually enjoy the food at our wedding. We would definitely recommend that others use Vinwood for their North Shore weddings!

Amazing food, food choices, and service! Stunning actually. Every guest at our wedding was pleasantly surprised they weren't going to be fed the typical "wedding food" and made it a point to tell us that the food was the best wedding food they had ever had. Many guests commented that they felt as if their filet mignon was cooked just for them, just the way they liked it. I can't say enough about Vinwood Caterers.

The food was absolutely delicious! After our meeting with Shawn, I felt so at ease and confident. The day of the wedding Shawn made things so seamlessly, the food was delicious and was presented beautifully, they had waitstaff follow my bridal party and myself around as we took professional pictures during cocktail hour so we could eat! They even let us incorporate some of our own desserts like Portuguese pastries and pies from Russell's Orchard. I would absolutely recommend them.
