I put "catering" as the category of service provided by Palate for our wedding this past December (2014), but they did way more than just prepare the food, and they did it all brilliantly according to the vision we began with and collaborated u...
From the first meeting my then-fiancee and I had with Glen and his crew (Anita, Katie, and the rest of the incredible think-tank up there), we knew this would be the best outfit to work with. They were sincerely and devotedly receptive of all ideas, and they had plenty of insightful input to add. Honestly, I know planning weddings can be hugely stressful, but let me assure you: Palate does volumes to alleviate that.
Throughout the planning process, every one of the people mentioned above were easily reachable, and when we had to leave messages or emails, they responded with the utmost promptness and professionalism. When it came to the floral arrangements, they helped take the helm of that whole process, and even as a guy I can honestly say that the flowers turned out absolutely perfectly for what my wife (and I) had in mind.
As for all other aspects of decoration, organization, and preparation, Palate took on all of these responsibilities with a smile, and they performed beautifully, creating for our special night an undeniably precious, charming, and concept-grasping environment. I mean this in no way to brag, but folks are still readily talking about it, about how unique and how beautiful everything was.
And as for the food, well, Palate's chef (Walker) is really just ridiculously talented, and, admittedly, we consider ourselves sort of food snobs, so to say we were overly impressed and utterly satisfied with every dish he put out is - at least in our eyes - to speak very, very highly of his abilities. Also, Palate was great when it came to helping us get the perfect menu constructed, allowing for sample tasting, etc., throughout the planning process. And, as I put, Walker executed this menu a flawless, New Orleans-style way.
All in all, if you don't hire Palate to help with your wedding (or party of any sort), you're missing out.
