It's been a month and people are still talking about the food
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.Sent on 06/01/2019
Hope was amazing to work with both in terms of communication and making all food related aspects of both events work smoothly.

Amazing Food and Service!
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 professional and had overly amazing service during the wedding weekend. She was always present and there for you even before you thought to ask for her. As soon as our first dance was over Kristen was already there placing mine and my husband's food at our seats so it was ready for us to make sure we got to eat. When it came to the food and menu, they were very helpful when it came to dietary restrictions and they also provided kid's meal's for those that needed them! It was a buffet which worked well, and our guests loved the variety. We had mini chicken and waffles at the cocktail hour which were a big hit :) Catering is always going to be one of the larger costs for a wedding, but I am glad we spent our money with this company as the service and quality was just top notch! You definitely won't go wrong booking A Sharper Palate.Sent on 08/24/2019

Amazing food and event organization!
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 attention to detail - providing extra touches of florals, fabrics, and candles that added to the ambiance. We got so many compliments on the service, the food, and the seamless organization of the entire event. Would hire ASP again in a heartbeat!Sent on 11/01/2018
LOVE LOVE LOVE A Sharper Palate. While working with Rent-E-Quip I have had the opportunity to take part in many events with this team and I can personally attest that they are worth every penny!
Exquisite food, presentation and staff.
Stephen, Lauren & the rest of the team make Sharper Palate our favorite catering company in Richmond-and their cheese plate is the best in town!!
