If I ever need a caterer again, I know exactly who I'm going to use. My husband and I booked Margaret for our wedding at The Winery at Bull Run this past November. From the initial tasting to each one-off question I had to wrapping up the reception, Margaret was fantastic and Purple Onion exceeded our expectations. Our guests raved about the food, and one of the best things I remember is that the staff made sure my husband and I got to eat! When we got a break from pictures, they had a plate of appetizers waiting for us so we didn't miss out on all the great bites we fell in love with at the tasting. Also, since my husband and I are camping enthusiasts, we decided to have a s'mores bar set up outside near a fire pit. I provided the ingredients for signature s'mores and Margaret and her staff set it up for us. And for anyone who's preparing for a tasting, request the chicken and waffle cone passed app. You're welcome :)

My husband and I used Purple Onion Catering for our October 30, 2015 wedding at Old Town Hall in Fairfax, Va. We worked with Margaret and we are so pleased with both Margaret and Purple Onion. The food was delicious and Margaret was on hand on the big day to make sure everything ran smoothly. Margaret and her staff were extremely professional on the day of, and Margaret was extremely helpful during planning as we decided on a menu, linens, and table settings, glasses, etc. She never tried to upsell us just for the sake of a higher final bill and I truly felt like she was helping us to plan our dream event within our budget. She even recommended a table layout and made an extremely smart adjustment to it on the fly without bothering my husband and me on our wedding day. I couldn't be more pleased with our decision to go with Purple Onion!

Margaret and the whole Purple Onion team made our wedding day so special! From the delicious food that our guests raved about to the beautiful decor they provided, they helped make our dream wedding come to life! When we began the wedding planning process and sampled Purple Onion's food at the Winery at Bull Run we knew we needed to use them for our wedding! Margaret was so easy to work with and would immediately get back to me making sure no detail was overlooked!

Joanie was a delight to work with. We were able to get in and do several tastings and when the day of the wedding came, we were very pleased with the food (and desserts!) As the bride I only wish I'd had more time on wedding day to enjoy all the wonderful food! We did get a lot of positive feedback from guests who especially raved about the braised short ribs. Overall I think Purple Onion is excellent value and service. Totally recommended!

Purple Onion was great to work with. Margaret was our POC and she was incredibly responsive and was even able to help us with suggestions, as she was so familiar with our venue (Winery at Bull Run). Since catering was our largest expense we had some sticker shock, but Margaret worked with us to figure out what was the most cost effective option for our wedding. Most importantly, the food was delicious! We loved their dessert bar, and the passed apps were amazing. Margaret organized a walk-through of the venue and was always on top of things. She even took some of our ceremony decor and was able to incorporate them into the buffet! Great service and great food!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Purple Onion Catering for our wedding a few weeks ago. I cannot say enough good things about this company! My husband and I had a southern charm themed wedding at Morais Vineyard. That’s all we knew when we came to Purple Onion. We knew our theme and that we wanted the food to taste good. When we came to Purple Onion I met a little fairy named Paige who waved her wand and literally made magic happen. Working full time jobs and planning a wedding wasn’t easy for us, so having a catering company who could work with our schedule was key. Paige was flexible with our schedules and was instrumental in making our day magic. The communication was prompt and any problems were fixed immediately. The food. OMG the food. The food....................... AMAZING!!! The chef created our special southern charm menu with food that hits in the soul but quaint to fit our theme. I could talk forever but Go with Purple Onion you won’t be disappointed. Get Paige if you can she is AMAZING!!

My wife and I were looking to have a low-key and intimate affair and were a little daunted by the wedding planning process. Luckily we found Purple Onion and they wonderful to work with from the initial email inquiry to the actual wedding day. Margaret and the rest of the Purple Onion staff that we met were so welcoming right away, which was such a relief for a same-sex couple. After doing a tasting at Purple Onion we were sold! My wife and I are both vegetarians so they allowed us to bring a friend to try the meat dishes, which we really appreciated. At first the amount of decisions to make seemed overwhelming, but Margaret's easy going and positive style made it stress free and fun. On the wedding day, all of the planning paid off and everything came together beautifully. The food was amazing and I still can't stop thinking about the risotto dish that we had at the wedding! Our wedding guests commented that it was the best food they'd had at a wedding before. The Purple Onion staff (Jessica, Octavio, John, and Teresa) who worked the wedding were very friendly, efficient, and organized. Can't thank them enough for making it such a perfect day!

We worked with Margaret for our wedding catering and she did a phenomenal job. She was very responsive and helped us pick the menu we wanted. The food was super fresh and she even had plates made just for us so that we could still enjoy the food on our wedding day. Our guests are still raving about the food and joke that were wasn't anything left on their plates. Margaret also worked closely with our venue to make sure everyone was on the same page which was great. We would definitely use Purple Onion again and recommend them to any future couples. Thank you Margaret and Purple Onion!

We used Purple Onion to cater our wedding reception, and everything turned out great! They pair their catering points of contact with certain reception sites, which worked really well. Our reception was at Old Town Hall, so our contact at Purple Onion was Margaret. We really liked that they set things up this way, because it meant that Margaret had done many weddings at Old Town Hall and was very familiar with both the reception site and the reception site contacts. She spent a lot of time with us leading up to the wedding planning the menu, rentals, and even did a walk through of the reception site with us and the reception site contacts to ensure we had all the logistics in order. During our initial tasting, the owner even stopped in to say hi and check in on what we thought of everything. Day of, everything went perfect. The food was excellent, and the staff was absolutely great! Each member of the staff was genuinely friendly and helpful, and we couldn't have asked for better service. Even when we were packing things up to head out of the site, the staff were there helping us and congratulating us and wishing us the best. Overall a very positive experience!

Margaret was a real pleasure to work with. As with most other aspects of our wedding planning, we had no idea what we were doing when it came to the catering part. Margaret made the process so easy. All of our food options were fantastic, and things that I would order in a restaurant any day. It was hard to pick the final choices that we would offer our guests, as everything was so tasty. We had several last minute changes to the guest list (as you do), but Margaret was on top of it. Our reception went off without a hitch, and my meal tasted great. The dessert display was out of this world! While the main dishes were amazing, I would say that where Purple Onion really shines is their dessert, both in taste and presentation. Our guests were raving about the food, which is always great to hear. An especially nice touch was that we had a couple of vegetarian friends (none of our selections were veg. friendly) that Margaret was able to accommodate with no problem. They too, could not stop talking about how good their meals were. I would definitely recommend Purple Onion to anybody getting married in the Northern Virginia or greater DC area. From the beginning of planning to the day of, it was just a real pleasure to work with Margaret and the rest of the PO team.

We had a rustic Ireland feel for our wedding and Purple Onion created a menu to fit! The food was exquisite and the attention to detail was surprising! We were so impressed and they made our experience very personal. ALL of my guests went on and on about the quality of the food and the presentation. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone!

This catering company is AWESOME!! There is not enough words for me to express how happy we were with this company! Margaret and her staff did an awesome job for our wedding reception! She did a great job with us when we were looking for a company ... even though we didn't know the "ins and outs" of hiring a catering company. We felt such ease when we were with Margaret in our consultations. They did a great job with the food tasting and selections of dishes and table cloths. I had so many questions and concerns ... Margaret took care of all those questions and concerns with such patience and professionalism ... she always had a big smile on her face!! They did an awesome job on the wedding day with the set up of all the tables and the food. The staff was very attentive and professional the entire evening ... they never wavered in their service! They even helped us after the reception was over and they were off the clock ...awesome company and I highly recommend them for any venue. The food and service was absolutely awesome!!!
