  • Titling this review a "fantastic experience", I feel, is underselling our experience with Harvest Moon. From the tasting, to the months of navigating through this pandemic, to the actual wedding that took place two days ago, Harvest Moon has been attentive, flexible and responsive. Our tasting experience with Harvest Moon blew the rest of the competition out of the water. The food was incredible (and frankly comparable to some Michelin starred restaurants we've been to)! They were also honest and transparent; Sally and Charlee took notes on what we liked and what we did not and sent them to us for review. We had to downsize our wedding from 200 to 20 due to the pandemic; Harvest Moon not only accommodated our requests, their prices remained competitive and reasonable. Prior to the wedding, they noted that my now sister-in-law has an extensive list of food allergies and created a menu just for her for our reception. On the day of, they were able to replicate the quality of th... Read more

  • Not only did Harvest Moon create the most unique and fun menu for our October Fest themed palette, but the staff went above and beyond on our wedding day! The attention to detail, hospitality, and service was superb! They even made my husband's grandmother's signature dish that tasted just like hers! The communication for the year of planning could not have gone smoother! Trust is so important when hiring your caterer and Harvest Moon went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. I never had any hesitation when it came to Sally, Charlee and their team. Our guests still are speaking of how amazing the presentation and food was! You cannot go wrong with Harvest Moon!

  • We hired Harvest Moon for our Charlottesville wedding in January 2020, and it could not have been a better experience. Sally was a pleasure to work with, and the food was absolutely amazing! Many of our guests came up to us during the wedding to comment on how great the food was. Harvest Moon was also incredibly attentive to details, and made every effort to ensure allergies and food sensitivities would be taken care of. We couldn't have asked for better catering!

  • After our tasting, my husband and I knew we had to hire Harvest Moon between how delicious the food was and how professional they were. My husband was so impressed that the entire time up until our wedding he kept saying "I can't wait for the food!" Our guests were just as impressed as we were. From the hors d'oeuvres to dinner, everything was perfect. Our guests raved about our food to us during the wedding and even after the wedding we keep hearing how great the food was. One of my bridesmaid is a vegetarian and when she saw that the vegetarian dish had brussels sprouts she told the staff member it was her favorite vegetable and they brought her more brussels sprouts. It's the small details like that that go above and beyond. We also loved how Harvest Moon went above and beyond to take care of us during the wedding. Right after our ceremony, my husband and I took a moment alone in the bridal quite and they brought us drinks and the appetizers. That was one of our favorite moments o... Read more

  • Great communication and even better food! I’m so glad we had HM with us for our wedding day, not only did they adapt to COVID restrictions they made sure that we weren’t left hanging when we needed to postpone then move up our wedding. I’m seriously dreaming of our cocktail appetizers and wish I could make salmon like theirs at home. If your looking for a caterer in the Charlottesville area there really is no other choice. From rentals, to securing specific foods to make your wedding day memorable they really do go above and beyond. I wish they had a restaurant we could visit year after year to relive our wedding day. Thank you Harvest Moon for making our wedding day delicious!

  • We hired HMC for our September 2020 wedding. Planning a wedding through a pandemic was so challenging, but the team at HMC was so flexible and accommodating to our rapidly changing guest list. Kristi and Mark were fantastic to work. The food was over the top amazing and the steps that they implemented to help keep our guests safe during the reception were fantastic. I wouldn't think twice about booking them again for any future events.

    Hi Meredith, Thank you for the awesome review. We cannot tell you how great it was to find the balance between guest and staff safety and still having an amazing time at your wedding. Together I think we both found how this can be done and allow the most important moments in life to go forward. We wish you and Brad the best and hope you continue to enjoy life so thoroughly.

  • Charlee and her team at Harvest Moon were amazing! We didn’t have very many specific requests, but they anticipated every detail we could have possibly had! The food was AMAZING and the desserts were delicious as well. Almost immediately after the ceremony, when we were taking a few family portraits during cocktail hour, the HM staff came over with two of our signature cocktails and two of each passed hors d'oeuvres. They also packed us a small “picnic” for after the wedding and wrapped up two of each of our desserts (which was great because I was too busy dancing to even make it to the dessert bar).

  • Harvest Moon Catering is way more than just a caterer. Working with them was quite possibly one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process! Not only was the food beyond incredible, but they were extremely accommodating to my food allergies. Between our initial conversation with Cristina to our daily conversations with Allison, there was never a moment where I felt stressed or unsure of the catering part of the wedding. I did not lift a finger for the rehearsal dinner or the day of the wedding and I know it was because of the amazing staff and Allison as our coordinator. They worked with us and our budget, our suggestions for the bar and gave us the most incredible service for our reception. Thank you HMC for helping our wedding go off flawlessly and giving us the best coordinator ever, Allison!

  • Working with Harvest Moon was the best decision we made for our wedding. They were so incredibly easy to work with, responsive, and flexible--and the food was amazing. We had some difficulties with our primary wedding planner and made several last minute and major changes, including (two weeks before the wedding) deciding to have Harvest Moon provide alcohol rather than working with our wedding planner to purchase it ourselves. That required major changes on Harvest Moon's part, and they were quick, efficient, communicative, and professional throughout what could have been a chaotic time. Everything went off perfectly thanks to them. We thought about going with a slightly cheaper and less established company for our caterer. While I can't speak to what that experience would have been, I can say that we were so grateful to have Harvest Moon's expertise and incredible operation behind us for the wedding. We had total confidence in them and it was wonderful to be able to n... Read more

  • I was so impressed working with this team. Not only was their execution flawless, but Cristina and Alison were proactive and strategic in helping me accomplish my vision, while also being cognizant of my budget. It was always a 1+1=3 equation when I had a call with them. They understood what I wanted, and used their experience and expertise to provide ideas and solutions I never would have thought of. The food is AMAZING. I set my bar pretty low for wedding food, so assumed this was just overpriced wedding industry stuff. No - this food is AWESOME. My husband was being very frugal when doing menu selections. But when we did our tasting, he kept yessing things without asking the prices because we just wanted all our friends and family to share in the deliciousness we just got to taste! The bonus with HM is that they handle all the rentals - it's totally hassle free. Lastly, they are more than just caterers. They basically trumped my wedding planner in most instances. Cristina and A... Read more

  • The one thing you do not want to be known for is the wedding with the bad food. Well if you choose Harvest Moon, I promise you will not have to worry about that. They have many options for every diet and taste, and all of them are incredible. They are super helpful in choosing the menu and were very professional.

  • HMC is no-brainer pick for a wedding caterer. My mother and stepfather had used HMC for their wedding a couple years earlier as well, where they served only appetizers (tons of them). When it was my turn, my husband and I considered only 1 other caterer, but easily selected HMC as they were the easiest and most flexible to work with to make our vision come true. We also used HMC for our lunch at King Family Vineyards (as the wedding party were there a couple hours before cocktail hour started in order to take photos), to rent additional décor, create our custom bride/groom-only wedding cake, and our takeaway gifts (to-go cookies as the guests got back on the bus), as well as to provide the wedding day-of planner. Their expertise was extremely helpful. We worked mostly with Natalie who was the absolute best - she was so professional and so friendly that we felt like we had one of our closest friends working behind the scenes at our wedding to make our vision come to life perfect. So re... Read more

  • We had a wonderful experience working with Harvest Moon! Everyone on their staff is SO kind and SO helpful. Want to especially thank Mark and Kristi who took care of us the whole way through. They were so fun to work with! From initial conversations to the tasting to the big day - they made it all seamless. They were able to take our ideas and turn them into reality - and honestly it all turned out way better than we could have even imagined! They thought about every single detail and they were so organized throughout the entire process. And everyone raved about our food as well! I would work with them again in a heartbeat!!!!

  • We found Harvest Moon in the middle of the pandemic when we had to reschedule and downsize our wedding. I worked with Allison from the beginning and she was amazing - she was responsive, flexible, offered a ton of suggestions and worked with their Chef to create a personalized menu based on food selections that we loved. Harvest Moon allowed us to have a complimentary tasting BEFORE we booked them, which a lot of other caterers don't do. The tasting was amazing and helped to solidify our choice that they were going to be a perfect choice for our wedding. Allison helped us with equipment as well - which made our rentals so easy. They do tables, chairs, linens, plates and silverware. It was truly a one-stop-shop!!! On our wedding day, the staff all showed up on time, they were so professional and kind to our guests, and the service was perfectly on time. We were so happy with Harvest Moon and so happy that we found them for our wedding!!
