  • More than a month post wedding everyone is still telling me what a great job A Sharper Pallet did on the food! We loved everything from our tasting with them several months before (where we went to their location and they provided samples of all food options), to the final pre wedding walk through where we all met and talked about all food stations and locations, and finally our wedding weekend where they catered both our rehearsal dinner/welcome party and our wedding day food. Hope was amazing to work with both in terms of communication and making all food related aspects of both events work smoothly.

  • Carter at A Sharper Palate was so easy to work with even through all the changes because of Covid. She took care of all the little details - arranged the rentals for a tent, tables and chairs, etc.. The food was wonderful, the service was impeccable. I can't recommend them highly enough.

  • A Sharper Palate catered both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception, and we truly cannot say enough good things about the food, the beautiful setup, and the fantastic service. Kristen was a pleasure to work with in the months leading up to our wedding. We never had any doubts that we were in good hands with Kristen. She was accommodating of some dietary restrictions we had, and we felt that she completely understood our desires and our vision from the start. The food was impeccable and our guests are still talking about how delicious it was. The setup for our rehearsal dinner and our reception was absolutely beautiful as well. I highly recommend using A Sharper Palate - you absolutely will not regret it.

  • Picking food is a big decision for a wedding and I did tastings at 3 different places total including A Sharper Palate. They were the last tasting I went to and immediately won me over with their exceptional service, professionalism, presentation and quality of food. Truthfully, I almost didn't attend this tasting because it was the only one that cost money (I think $75) but I decided to go for it and it was worth it! They also packed up any leftover food from the tasting and gave it to us to take home which was a great addition especially since we were paying. Kristen was very accommodating and flexible. We switched up menu items a few times and went back and forth but she was always there to answer questions and respond. We loved the food so much that we decided to book them for our rehearsal dinner as well! And we got a discount for booking them for both events. I was also able to come back for a dessert and cake tasting which was extra fun! Kristen and her team were very profession... Read more

  • A Sharper Palate catered our wedding and absolutely blew us away! We consulted with a few different catering/event companies before making a decision on ASP and they were the only one to deliver on a menu that met our specific vision while remaining budget conscious. Even though we provided our own alcohol, they gave us guidance on how much to provide and helped us choose recipes for signature drinks that met the theme of our event and our bar budget. Our contact throughout the entire process was Hope, and she was incredibly helpful and responsive - even with our last minute guest additions with dietary restrictions, and rental research when inclement weather threatened to derail our plans. On the actual day of the wedding, everything was orchestrated so smoothly and looked so gorgeous (I'll admit I was an emotional bride, but I burst into tears when I saw the cheese presentation because it looked so beautiful, haha)! Not only was the food delicious, but Hope and ASP had the utmost att... Read more

  • Leslie and the whole team at A Sharper Palate were amazing!!! She guided us through the whole process and really helped us put together a wonderful menu. She was so on top of it, easy to get in touch with and always straightforward. The food was sooooo good! Our guests are still talking about it! The service at the wedding was so on point. We never had to worry about a thing and they made sure we sat down to eat! Highly recommend. It was worth every penny!

  • Leslie Stone and her team at Sharper Palate knocked it out of the park for our wedding! We put complete trust in Leslie and she executed flawlessly to provide a beautiful setup and delicious food. We had shopped around to many caterers and found that Sharper Palate had the best quality food, most professional food presentation and highly experienced catering coordinator. Leslie worked with our unique menu requests to create the perfect food pairing for our guests. The biggest obstacle surrounding our wedding was the ability to flip and setup an entire room for a 200 person wedding in less than an hour. We again looked to Leslie, who handled that difficult task with ease. Still to this day, we're not sure what magic she pulled but the room was gorgeous and Leslie completely exceeded our expectations. We were extremely happy in our decision and would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a topnotch catering experience. Our guests are still raving about the food!

  • I used A Sharper Palate as the caterer for my wedding a few weeks ago. Every person I worked with in the company was very helpful and professional. They helped work within our budget and gave us the perfect menu for the night! They set up all the tables at the event and it was done beautifully. Everyone loved the food and we continued to eat leftovers for the better part of a week after the wedding! We highly recommend A Sharper Palate to cater any event’

  • Sharper Palate catered our wedding in June, and frankly I could not have been more impressed. We selected our menu over a year ago, when the world looked like a very different place. As the phases rolled out and new rules for gatherings were placed on all of us, A Sharper Palate continually came up with creative solutions so that we could keep the initial menu and ideal of our wedding. Not only that, our guests felt comfortable, respected, and like someone had paid attention to their safety and health. The food was delicious and my only complaint could be that everyone enjoyed too much of it so my own left overs were limited.

  • Sharper Palate catered my wedding, and I was so pleased with the results. We did one tasting that allowed us to customize the menu to our liking. Our guests all said the food was top-notch, and the staff during the event were incredibly responsive to the needs of the bride and groom. We loved their shrimp and grits, lamb chops, mini baked potatoes and more. They also made delicious specialty cocktails for our guests.

  • The ASP team was great to work with during our wedding planning process. Kristen and Kyle made our out of town planning easier by coordinating with the rental company to have samples on site when we came into town for our tasting. My fiance and I were looking to offer southern comfort food in a formal setting and ASP struck the perfect balance for us. When I told ASP we were planning on getting desserts from a few of our favorite local vendors instead of going with one of their cakes, the team could not have been more supportive. Our day of contact, Kim, was just as excited about our dessert table as I was and absolutely made my vision come to life. In addition to catering, ASP also coordinated our rentals for us including delivery, set up and breakdown arrangements which made for such a smooth process. I did have to put my foot down when we received pushback on our floor plan for plated dinner service. However, once ASP realized our vision for dinner was non-negotiable, they did a phe... Read more

  • I have heard many stories from their employee, current and former employee how they have been treated. People have been fire and also discriminated by the company.

  • Our venue required us to choose from a list of three approved caterers, and after meeting with ASP on the Wedding Crashers Tour, they were an easy choice. Lauren was so personable and easy to work with throughout the whole process, and we loved that we were able to include my parents in our tasting. Her team incorporated some family traditions into our menu (Polish pierogis) and tweaked some of their menu items to suit our tastes. They also allowed us to provide our own alcohol, which put a lot less pressure on our budget. Looking back, the only thing I would have done differently was to develop a more solid rain plan. There were a few small things that came up last minute that I wish we had been able to address ahead of time. Otherwise, my guests were full, happy, and well-hydrated for the entirety of our event!
