Incredible Experience

We highly recommend Vonderhaar’s Catering. The food is excellent, the service is incredible, and everyone is so flexible and kind. We loved working with Jan in the beginning; she is very informative and welcoming. Lori, the main contact at the reception, is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran smoothly, all while having a smile on her face. The staff at Vonderhaar’s are simply the best. A+. Highly recommend.

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!


better than my expectations!

jan was amazing at understanding what we were looking for and was always available to update our order. on the day of the event cynthia and her team took awesome care of us as well as our guests!


Our Wedding

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!


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!!!


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.


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!

Vonderhaar’s was easy to work with, even when planning the wedding out of town. They delivered exactly what we wanted. There was some confusion with vegan and vegetarian options day-of, but everything was there and they made it work.


Our food was delicious and everyone kept mentioning how good it was! The people who worked our event were so nice! One of the staff members even made up plates for my husband and I, as well as some of our grandparents! I’m so glad we chose to go with this catering company!

Kaylee S.

We were pleased with our catering experience. Vonderhaar’s worked seamlessly with our venue, Nathanael Greene Lodge, which made the day even easier for us. Our food was delicious, and exactly what we expected, thanks to the tasting during the planning session. The service was professional during the reception and they were wonderful for assisting my husband and myself during the reception by bringing us food or drinks without us needing to ask. Plus, our guests are still telling us how much they loved the food, especially the mashed potatoes!

Cant rave about Vonderhaars enough!! They catered my wedding at cooper creek and are a huge reason why it went so smoothly. The food was beyond delicious and they were so flexible when we picked our menu – adding a second dressing, putting things on the side. The staff that helped on our wedding were amazing. They were so attentive and polite. I am so glad we booked Vonderhaars!!!!!

Vonderhaar’s Catering Inc., is who you want to cater your wedding if you’re looking for delicious food and courteous staff! We had a buffet with a captains call for serving and everything went smoothly and guests were even allowed to go back for seconds which we appreciated so no food was wasted! In addition, we had some guests with severe food allergies and they were amazing in assisting us in accommodating their needs. Our guests with the food allergies told us they had never been to a wedding before where they could actually enjoy the food and how much that meant to them, which made us so happy! In addition they had amazing wait staff who went above and beyond to help us enjoy all aspects of our wedding outside of the food and drinks! Our waiter at the head table helped me bussell my dress when it came undone and I couldn’t find my sister, so sweet! Overall it was super easy to get in for tastings and to work with the staff to get exactly what we wanted. Great service and even better food! Would definitely recommend this catering company!
