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 phenomenal job accommodating our guests. Overall we had a great experience with ASP and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other couples.

This company did a wedding at my house on may 20th 2017 it was't my wedding it was a close friends daughter. They did a excellent job, they were well staffed. The food was very good, everything was replenished as needed. They were well staffed, everything was cleaned up. No mess what so ever was left in my yard they took all the trash with them. the left over food was put in container and put in a refrigerator. They got there in plenty of time to get the food ready before all the guest arrived. If I ever need catering services again. I would use them again.. I might add, I am very particular when it comes to food and this company impressed me. Great Job Sharper Palate.!!!!!!!!

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!
