they did an excellent job! everyone has been raving about the food ever since the wedding. the only bummer was that they forgot to pack me and my husband to go boxes as promised and neither of us got to eat any of it because we were busy visiting with guests. I plan to use them for all future events.

Our event was a Rehearsal Dinner which is not an option in your drop down menu, and I would suggest adding this type of event to your list.
Our initial meeting was with David Napier, the owner of White House Catering. We felt a connection immediately and we were very pleased with the entire event. They were accommodating, very responsive to questions along the way, and flexible. The servers and our event manger were superior. It was a wonderful event.

I am so impressed with David and his staff. They were able to arrange for a completely gluten free wedding for 125 people! The food we chose was gluten free by nature and was so great that NO ONE would have guessed. From my first conversation to the day of the event, they were confident and capable.... Not something we see often with strict dietary concerns. On top of the great service, wonderful food, and professionalism, they were significantly more cost effective than any other catering company in Fredericksburg.

Amazing! The most unique wedding food our guests had ever experienced. We were so impressed during our tasting for the wedding that we booked them for our rehearsal dinner, too! Our rehearsal dinner was at the Old City Bar location. The food was absolutely delicious, and the portions were large. The wedding catering was perfect. White House worked with us to create a unique oyster bar with raw and grilled oysters, which was a hit! They beautifully set up the displays during the cocktail hour. For the dinner, they worked with our long tables to have a family style dinner which ensured our food was hot and our guests were able to interact. The food itself was so delicious. We received so many compliments. White House Catering's staff was great to work with and on point with everything.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with White House Catering. They were responsive to emails, and flexible with the menu (and my additions and subtractions to and from the menu). They worked with me to serve alcohol that I had purchased, and also to serve the cake that I had baked. At the event, Jai, Rose, and Gary charmed our guests, moved the bar downstairs for us, and made the entire event go very smoothly. Their pricing was more competitive than other vendors I interviewed. They're completely flexible with menu items, and will make even the tiniest tweaks to their dishes for you. Do yourself a favor, and hire them!

I recently used White House Catering for my October wedding. I can't even begin to tell you how many rave reviews my husband and I have had about the food! It was SO good! The thing that attracted us to them was their flexibility with the menu - they were able to create a menu that reflected us as a couple (me and my New England roots and my husband and his Southern roots) in a cost effective, but absolutely delicious way. My only "complaint" was that the staff didn't do a very good job making sure the bridal party got appetizers. We had to flag them down as they walked by us to the kitchen. But that complaint has more to do with my not getting more of the delicious appetizers. I highly recommend this company.

From the moment we met with David, my husband and I were sold on doing business with White House Catering. He helped us design a delicious menu and under our budget! We were blown away with the dishes we sampled at our tasting, which was FREE of charge (unlike other places). We used The City Bar, owned by White House, to host our rehearsal dinner and a welcome party for our out of town guests. We had an italian themed rehearsal dinner, family style, which was phenomenal! We had people texting us during the meal telling us how much they enjoyed the food! The vegetable lasagna was a surprising delight to many of our guests, who were not expecting such a delectable "veggie" dish. For our welcome party, we offered light appetizers and desserts with a southern flaire. The fried green tomatoes and bourbon pecan tarts were gone before we knew it! Everyone was very happy to hear that White House was also catering the wedding, they knew that food would be good! We worked with David to incorporate all of our favorites for Cocktail Hour, including my mother's request - a bruschetta bar! The crab cakes and fried oysters were another hit. The feast continued for our dinner with guests raving about their potato lasagna (I couldn't eat enough of this!) and chicken stuffed with cheddar cheese and almonds. The beef was cooked to perfection and tender, while the salmon with dill sauce was moist and delicious. We can't say enough positive things about our experience and will definitely use White House in the future!!!

White House Catering was on our wedding venue's preferred vendor list, and they were the first people I contacted in regards to food. I talked to several other Richmond catering companies, and they were far and beyond the most responsive, professional, and best value. Andrew was our main contact, and I cannot say enough great things about him. He was so knowledgeable and helped me narrow down my food choices. They do not have a set menu list and let you (literally) pick and type of food you want, so it can be overwhelming. We decided to go with a BBQ southern comfort food theme and it was all delicious!! I had to plan the wedding from 2,000 miles away and never had a chance to meet them in person until a month before the wedding. Even so, I always felt confident they had everything covered. We decided to also use their venue and catering for the rehearsal dinner, and the night went flawlessly. All of our guests at the dinner and the wedding the next night kept saying how much they loved the food, and the waitstaff was so professional. Andrew made sure that we had our dinner at our seats as soon as our first dance was over so we could get food in us before we had to go great all our guests. They also don't charge for cake cutting, and boxed my new husband and I up some of the food so we could eat it later that night in our hotel room (which was great because we were starving!). They also boxed up all leftovers from the wedding for free, and we took it back to the hotel where the after party was, and our guests were able to eat a late dinner while partying. I would absolutely use WHC for any of my future catering needs, and would recommend them immediately to anyone planning a wedding. They are the best in Richmond

We had our wedding reception at The Old City Bar which was catered by White House Catering and we cannot say enough wonderful things about them. From the start David was very accommodating to our wishes to have the menu include some of our favorites like ceviche and scallops. David and his team run an excellent business and were always very quick to respond to my calls and emails. On the day of the wedding I was a little nervous about getting everything set up before my hair/makeup appt. at 11am but this was certainly not an issue. Bill was tasked to work our wedding and was there from start (8am) to finish (after 10pm) and was a absolutely amazing. He tended every need and more, extremely profession and obvious that he has abundant experience and knows how to run a great event. He helped us during set up with the flow of the room and what he had seen work (and not work) and during the reception (and after) we had numerous friends/family that attended tell us how excellent the timing of the food and service was. I would highly recommend White House Catering! Thank you David and Bill for making our reception run so smoothly and for the wonderful food and service!
