  • We are so excited that we hired Palate Catering for our wedding. The head chef and owner, Heather Watson, is super fun, flexible, imaginative, and professional. Every interaction we had with her was beyond our expectations. She worked very hard to come up with a custom tasting menu for us and provided a complimentary tasting with no guarantee that we would hire them for our wedding. She really went above and beyond to help us. The food she served during the tasting we unique, beautifully presented, and delicious. We will gladly recommend Palate catering to anyone. Because of their skill, professionalism, and amazing personalities we know our wedding will be a complete success.

  • I cannot say enough great things about Heather and the entire Palate team. We got married at Mountain Shadows Retreat in Foresthill, CA 5/18/2019. What we expected was a sunny spring day, and instead were hit with a cold rain storm. We had to adjust a lot of the plans and through it all Heather was flexible, supportive, and assured me that I did not need to worry about a thing. The wedding was a huge success, better than I imagined it would be. The food, the service, the table settings, the dessert display, the bar set-up. I loved it all and my guests raved about it. The food was so good. Everything from the appetizers (lasagne rolls!) to the salad and vegetables, to the trip-tip and salmon, to the desserts. Oh and even the bread and garlic-herb butter. Everything was exceptionally prepared and tasted amazing. I highly recommend Heather, Mike and Palate. You will not be disappointed!!

  • Palate Catering catered for our wedding on Dec 8, 2018, and our guests have been telling us non-stop how much they loved the dinner! I mean, who could resist their delicious entrees like "panko and fresh herb crusted salmon drizzled with lemon garlic butter", "grilled top sirloin steak with honey bourbon bacon butter", and a huge variety of equally scrumptious appetizers, sides, and salads? It wasn't just the food that makes Palate amazing, though. Mike and Heather have been super responsive, upfront, and thoughtful from beginning to end -- they responded to my panicked texts and emails throughout the planning process kindly, always providing great insight and advice; they were very conscientious of our guests' dietary restrictions and needs (gluten/dairy/vegetarian/vegan), providing some with specialized plates; they had one of the servers bring out appetizers during our outdoor photoshoot so that the bride&groom could have some food; and they made sure to serve us dinner, so we d...

  • I know my review will sound like an ad but I have nothing bad to say about these guys! The one thing my guests still remember and rave about is the food at our wedding! What we had: Buffet with salmon, prime rib, and tons of sides. Food: amazing! Wish they had a restaurant. Price: worth every penny, and they reimbursed me for people who did not show up last minute! (price per person). Service: both owners were professional and friendly. The staff they hired to work our wedding were some of the nicest people I had ever met! I (bride) got really sick with nerves before the wedding, one of the waitresses saw me in the bathroom with my bridesmaids and brought me a tray of food and water. I mean, who does that? So nice! They also brought us a tray of appetizers when we were taking our wedding photos so we didn't miss out on the goods! (My husband still talks about the lasagna pinwheels). And they brought the bride and groom plates (with a little of everything) to our table so we d... Read more

  • The team at Palate catering provides an absolutely superb experience. From the moment we spoke, my bride and I knew we were speaking to the right people. From their no-nonsense pricing structure to their free tasking (both for the meal as well as cake!), the experience upfront was simple and fun. The team was incredibly patient while my bride and I decided on the details of the place setting and decorations. We didn't have all the details right the first time and Palate were supportive and patient every step of the way. The food itself is out of this world. Not only do they use organically source produce when possible, they even take it a step further and use their own greenhouse-grown food for your wedding, which was a huge bonus. Every guest left that night with full bellies and rave reviews. Even when times get stressful, Palate makes sure that you (specifically bride and groom) are taken care of. Last, but not least, you'll be sure to eat during your wedding!

  • We booked Palate Catering for our wedding on 8/11/18. I can't say enough good things about Heather and Mike! They are extremely professional, easy to work with, and courteous! They answer emails, texts and calls quickly! The food was absolutely amazing (Yes, we ate at our wedding)! All of our guests commented about how delicious it was. We wanted to have three meat options for our plated dinner and they were more than willing to accommodate us. When using Palate Catering you can customize your menu for what you want. I love this idea instead of being forced to use a "cookie cutter" menu. Our venue was two hours from their location and again, they were more than happy to come to our location. They even made us a special plate of our Hors D'oeuvre's since we were taking pictures during cocktail hour. You can really customize any and everything with Palate Catering in order to make your event special and one of a kind! We used their bartender services and were so happy! Would highly recom...

  • Heather and Mike were so great to work with! They were our first and last food tasting, that's how wonderful they were - we fell in love with them from the beginning! The menu is outstanding and the taste was marvelous for all of the courses that we chose. They grow their own vegetables so everything is fresh! We're very lucky to have found Palate Catering and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for great food and service at a very reasonable price!

  • Mike and Heather are amazing they were the stars of the evening for us. I planned everything but catering on my own so naturally alot went wrong and they just rolled with it!! They were able to prepare all our food on the top of a mountain with no electricity or water. And they grow most of there own veggies and herbs! It could not have been more fresh. food was fantastic, even better than I remember at the tasting. They worked within our budget and made it look like we spent a fortune. I got so many compliments on how great the food was (Mike your butter was a major hit) and how wonderful their team was. And they really just have an amazing energy to them and that is huge to have around in the chaos of a diy wedding (or any wedding I imagine). I cannot thank palate catering enough for all they did for us on our wedding.

  • Look no further! This is hands down the best catering option out there. Heather and Mike were an absolute joy to work with and the food is beyond amazing. We used Palate catering for our wedding of 130 people and everyone is still talking about how amazing the food was. They made sure that my husband and I were fed before and after the ceremony and left plenty of food for us to take with us to the hotel after. They’re amazing!!

  • We used Palate for our backyard wedding reception and we were very happy with everything. Heather was very responsive and very accommodating. Literally EVERYTHING was delicious!!! My personal favorite was her corn salad. With the (vegetarian) southwestern egg rolls as a close runner up. No tri tip was leftover so I think everyone loved it! I would certainly hire her services again in a heartbeat, she made everything so easy.

  • STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY…. If you want to have a disaster of a wedding, go ahead and book them, but if want true professionals, look anywhere but here. Palate Catering was hired for both my rehearsal dinner and wedding. At the rehearsal dinner, not only was dinner 20+ minutes late to be served (all our guests were just sitting and waiting), they ran out of pork and the last guests did not have anything to eat. The next day at our wedding, owner Mike was a no call, no show, leaving Heather (other owner) to attend solo. Heather showed up and said with a laugh, “I’ve never been here before and I have no idea what to do.” Which was the beginning of the disastrous evening. We paid extra for a specialty bacon bar, which was cleared out in under 10 minutes with one server saying to my MOH, “We didn’t think this would be a hit so we didn’t make very much.” Dinner service was embarrassing, they set the tables with the wrong china (the set it with platters not plates), ...
