    Leslie is the best!

    We booked this venue for our wedding reception on Nov. 24, 2018 – this is not your typical ballroom venue…it has personality and an amazing view, which is why we loved it, plus they are willing to work with your budget.
    Our coordinator was Leslie and she is truly amazing and helpful. We had the cocktail hour at the dock and the reception dinner/dancing inside. She worked with my day-of-coordinator and I did not worry about a thing on my wedding day.

    The food was aaaaaaaa-amazing!!!!!!! There was not a single guest disappointed in the food. Everyone complimented us. We chose the 4 course dinner because my husband wanted to do a tasting and you are not able to do that if you choose the buffet style dinner – it was definitely worth it!! – Also, I am from Peru and it meant a lot when they agreed to make Pisco Sour as my signature drink. It was delish – true Peruvian Pisco Sour!! - It was the perfect night and we are so happy we chose this venue.

    PS: make sure to hire Brittany from Florida Beach Wedding Inc- She knows the venue very well!

    We live in Fort Lauderdale but most of our family and guests were coming from all over the country for an intimate wedding. We wanted to give them a uniquely Florida experience and the Grateful Palate was the perfect venue. Situated on the inter coastal waterway provides a spectacular view of yachts going by and the setting sun. The interior of the venue is sophisticated and understated (no screaming carpet pattern or wallpaper) so your own wedding theme is not competing for attention. It was just the right size for the ceremony, dinner/dancing reception for 50 guests indoors and cocktails/appetizers on the dock. If it had rained- no problem, we'd have the cocktails inside; we also didn't have worry about the July heat which can be overwhelming for an outdoor setting.
    The staff is top notch talent and service minded. Leslie, our event manager, was patient, responsive to every request, fun to work with and a consummate professional. She anticipated and solved any problem quickly; worked with our other vendors seamlessly; communicated and followed through promptly at all times. She made it easy! Bryan, the head chef, prepared distinctive hors d'oeuvres, a beautiful and delicious meal; Monica, the pastry chef, fulfilled a last minute request for a wedding cake (since our original plans fell through) which our guests loved ; Kevin, the staff manager, Lori, the bartender, and the wait staff were extremely attentive to all our guests. In short, everyone felt well cared for.
    Having everything in one place simplified the planning and the quality of the Grateful Palate could not be matched by other venues- and we considered many. This is a truly a gem of a place for any special occasion.
