    Lorraine, did absolutely the best catering for my daughter’s wedding . The food was fabulous, some of the best catered food I’ve ever eaten, it was displayed and served beautifully. There was so much food; no one could complain about the excellence, quality and quantity of the food. There was something wonderful to eat no matter what your taste . The vegetable dishes were all seasonal and super fresh.
    Working with Lorraine at Palate was a delight, she had great suggestions for the food and followed through with delicious food.
    When I entertain again I’ll call Palate, the food doesn’t get much better.

    My husband and I were married June 2018, down in lower Delaware. We finally decided on our wedding date in March 2018...yes 3 months before the bid day! Lorraine Papp, the owner of Palate restaurant, was highly recommended to me so I called her thinking I was probably too late to have her cater my wedding. As I was speaking to Lorraine, I immediately wanted to hire her. She was so warm, friendly, and very accommodating. Not only did she make herself available, she knew the vendors I would need to call/hire in order to pull off our event with such short notice...and she called them for me. By the end of the week, I had Palate as my caterer with a bartender, and multiple staff to assist, a wonderful menu, I had the tent, chairs, beautiful handmade farm tables, all provided by BK Party Rentals, plus various other details planned. Lorraine knew all the local vendors and really helped me reserve their services before it was really too late.

    Lorraine created a fabulous menu for our special day which included fresh, local, seasonal dishes, and they were beautifully displayed. EVERYONE at the wedding absolutely LOVED every dish served and went back for seconds and even thirds. Lorraine served the food on these beautiful recycled palm leaf plates which really buttoned up the whole wedding theme. I also had so many compliments on how friendly and knowledgeable the staff and bartenders were to my guests.

    Lorraine and her staff were so easy to work with, I just can't say enough positive statements about my experience with them. I am truly Thankful for her help and kindness during what could have been a very stressful time. Our wedding happened seamlessly and we are truly grateful for all Palate has done for us.

    So we are highly highly recommending Palate!!! You will not be disappointed!!
