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’

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!!

Amazing food, stellar service. Highly recommend!

A Sharper Palate is on our preferred vendor list for our new rustic chic barn venue in Powhatan Virginia. We are very selective when we decided on caterers for the farm as presentation is everything and A Sharper Palate is the real deal-first class service, quality menus and many positive recommendations from others. Fairview Farm Events is pleased to partner with them!
