We just had our wedding at Locust Grove and went with Artist's Palate for our catering. We received tons of compliments on the food. The process of planning with Charlie (the owner) was smooth and he was on top of every detail we planned for. The food was delicious, he, his wife, and his staff are are awesome, professional and very easy to work with, and the day went off without a hitch.

From the moment we started working with him, we felt relaxed that he was handling everything he needed to handle and we could relax. We did not use a wedding coordinator so having an efficient, organized caterer (who is essentially the primary point person for the whole day) is essential. Look no further than Artist's Palate if you are planning a wedding in Poughkeepsie. In addition, we felt the cost of catering was competitive and fair, and the quality of food was above and beyond your typical wedding food.

Charles Fells and The Artist's Palate did an amazing job of catering our wedding in the Hudson Valley NY this weekend. The food was sensational and not just for wedding food....it was outstanding ! Charles and his team were highly professional and provided seamless service throughout the entire event despite some challenging circumstances. They exceeded our expectations and I would recommend them to any one searching for a caterer at any location in the tri-state area.

I had the Artist's Palate cater my wedding last weekend. We are still fielding comments and rave reviews from all of our guests about the food! My favorite comment was "I'd say it was the best wedding food I've ever had, but that's not fair because it cannot even be classified as wedding food, it was so delicious!"

The owner, Charlie, is awesome to work with. He's no-nonsense in the best possible way. He gets straight to the point, minds the details, nails the execution, and serves up absolutely scrumptious food for your guests.

We also had them do our rehearsal dinner at their amazing event space called Canvas, and the food was just as tasty for 25 people as it was for 125 people. This is no small feat!

Also, the catering staff was awesome. Attentive, polite, professional. I would recommend the Artist's Palate to anyone having an event in the Hudson Valley. THEY ROCK!!!!!!!

I can't wait to have an anniversary party at Canvas in a few years!

My daughter used Artist's Palate for her wedding at Locust Grove. The food was excellent. Our wedding guests raved about the appetizers and the main courses.

Everything was well organized and executed. Charley runs a tight ship! And his wife is a great chef!

Thank you, Artist's Palate!

From start to finish Charles Fells was the pinnacle of professionalism. He provided us with a detailed menu right after our first meeting, and the menu beautifully came to life on he big day! I can not tell how many people came up and said "This was easily the best food I have EVER had at a wedding". His staff, including Caitlin his event coordinator, were professional, courteous, lovely, and catered to all of our guests. The room came out beautifully, and I was so excited to walk into the reception hall and see everything executed perfectly.

It was because of the Artist's Palate why our day was the best day of our lives, and my husband and I can honestly say it was the best meal we have ever had...and how incredible that 190 other people said the same thing!

most amazing, was that each of our guests got to order their meals as though they were at a restaurant. Just one of those extra touches that everyone was so incredibly impressed by, and something that amazed me! Especially since the food was the out in 30 minutes. incredible!

If you are getting married in hudson river valley, hire the artist's palate, your wedding will be the most incredible night of your life because of Charles and his team

Charles and Artist's Palate were an outstanding caterer, and I highly recommend them to anyone considering a wedding in the Hudson Valley area.

Food - Charles' food was outstanding, and consistent with the top-notch dining he provides at his restaurant. He was happy to construct a menu that suited our tastes, but provided his opinion on what he thought would be most tasty and appropriate for the season without any pushiness. He put together delicious options for meat eaters, vegetarians, and picky eaters alike. I don't recall a single person not enjoying their meal, and numerous guests came up to in the days, weeks, and even months after to tell me how Charles' food was the best they've had at any wedding. Charles' takes pride in the food he serves, and it shows.

Plating/Linens - Charles' team helped us select our plating and linens. He never tried to push the particularly expensive items on us, and actually recommended some of the more cost-effective options. The tables looked great.

Catering Logistics - Charles was outstanding on running catering from planning to the end. He has tons of experience and was a true professional throughout. At the planning stage, he knew exactly what things we needed (even when we didn't), and patiently walked us through the whole process. He recently hired some folks to specifically manage the "front of the room" during the wedding, and they too were wonderful and professional. We did not have a wedding coordinator, and Charles' team acted as a sort of unofficial coordinator at the wedding. The night went off without a hitch because of their coordination. And Charles brought the right number of people to handle the event - the bar was well-staffed so people never had to wait on a line for a drink, and the food service was flawless.

Truly, Charles and Artist's Palate did a wonderful job. I can't recommend them enough.

The Artist's Palate did an AMAZING job catering our wedding in early June! Charlie Fells and his team are really masters of their craft and we were extremely happy with the work they did for our wedding. They were extremely well-organized and Charlie is an excellent job preparing and executing the entire event. The food was superb and of the highest quality, as were the wines and cocktails. On top of that, Charlie's team really did a lot of logistics prior to and during the wedding that would normally be handled by a wedding planner - for this I worked with two wonderful young ladies named Caitlin and Monica, who both did an amazing job. Caitlin was present throughout the entire event, making sure that things were running on schedule and helping us stay on track. The Artist's Palate is really the main reason that our wedding day turned out perfect and ran seamlessly! If you want a perfect wedding, hire these guys!

Wow. We could not be more happy with the level of creativity and degree of service with Charles and his team. They had us at Brussels sprouts with bacon, but what really counts in the end is that we knew we could count on them on our wedding day and we did not have to worry about a thing after that. Everything came off seamlessly, despite the fact that changes were needed up until the last minute due to unexpected weather and delays in our schedule. Nothing ever does happen completely as you plan and this team never skipped a beat. They are a wonderful group of people to work with and they really will go to any length to create your unique vision while guiding you with their talent and experience in the business. Charles is true artist, but he is also absolutely professional in handling every other aspect that he is responsible for in making a wedding reception come together and run smoothly on the day of. We are so happy to have made him our choice. Our guests are still talking about all of the amazing foods at our wedding.

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner at Canvas, the private space next door to The Artist's Palate. It was probably the BEST rehearsal dinner I have ever been to. It was so wonderful to have a private space to ourselves with great decor. The owner met with us to customize a menu that would fit our needs, even making sure not to mimic anything on the menu for the wedding day itself. The food was out of this world and the service was amazing. The value for this dinner was very reasonable. The owner also made sure to have specific alcoholic beverages on hand that we preferred. This is a great location for a rehearsal dinner if you are getting married at The Grand Hotel or The Grandview as its location is perfect. Also they accommodate various sized groups from 40- 100 pp which was great for us as we had an out of town wedding and a lot of the other venues could not accommodate 40 pp on a Saturday night. Thank you Charlie and staff!

Like some of the other reviewers here, we had a very specific menu in mind and Charlie did an amazing job of accommodating all of our requests and suggesting additions/changes that made things even better. Good food was one of the most important things to us for our wedding, and it was amazing - and one of the easiest vendor relationships we had. Almost all the guests we've spoken to since the wedding have mentioned how good the food was and most said that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. In terms of planning, Charlie was far and away the most organized and responsive caterer we spoke to. We used a wedding planner, but I wished we hadn't as things would have run more smoothly had Charlie taken care of everything himself and dealt with us directly. I would not only recommend, but insist, that any friend or family member looking for a caterer use Charlie. Can not recommend highly enough.
