Harvest Moon catered a rehearsal dinner for us. We supplied the linens, table decorations and alcohol. When we returned from the rehearsal everything was set up perfectly and they were ready for our guests. The food was excellent and the staff that worked the event went out of their way to make our guests feel welcome. At the end they helped up clean up the space and load extra items in our car or room. Since they were also catering the wedding they took the extra alcohol in their vehicle to the reception venue. We received many compliments from our guests the next day about the food and service.

I can't say enough positive things about Kelly Mahanes and Harvest Moon Catering as a whole. Kelly was always responsive and ensured that all of the planning up until the wedding was executed flawlessly. She came up with alternative rain plans, and with all of the details I worried about for the wedding, I had no concerns about catering. For the actual event, guests commented that the food was the best wedding food they had eaten and perhaps even more importantly said they felt like the catering staff made them feel welcomed as if they were at someone's home. I highly recommend Harvest Moon.

Harvest Moon was fantastic for our wedding! Leading up to the event, Kelly and others at Harvest Moon were easy to get in contact with and also very flexible to help assist making our day fantastic. I live in Texas but got married in Charlottesville so it helped ease a lot of stress knowing they had everything organized. The day of the wedding, everything went smoothly. Multiple guests complimented the food, stating that they've never enjoyed food served at weddings until this one. Harvest Moon did a great job of making sure my husband and I, along with our families, were taken care of throughout the evening. This was our family's second wedding with Harvest Moon (my sister used them in 2013) and each time we've been very impressed. Thanks for everything!!!

Harvest Moon did an amazing job with our wedding. From the initial consultation to the day of wedding, April and team were fantastic. We had mixed experienced in initial contact with other companies, no response and/or poor follow through. April Muniz and the team were responsive, collaborative and professional from beginning to end. Weeks later, our guests are still talking about the cocktail hour and food served at our wedding!

I can't say enough good things about Harvest Moon and Cristina, who worked with us to arrange the details for our wedding. They respected our budget and helped us keep costs down. Cristina was extremely knowledgeable and helped us implement exactly the kind of wedding we were hoping to have. The caterers' extensive experience with Charlottesville weddings meant that they provided us with outstanding service. They have all kinds of little tricks they've picked up over the years - they get older people and kids to the buffet first, make the first drink passed at the cocktail hour to avoid a massive line, and even found me at the end of the reception to give me a cool, wet towel for my neck (very helpful for a June wedding)! Many of our guests told us it was the best food and service they'd ever had at a wedding - and we felt the same way!

Harvest Moon Catering does an exceptional job. They were very timely and easy to work with leading up to the wedding. On the day of, they provided a VIP staffer that was assigned to take care of the bride and groom, bringing hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and cool rags to help cool off through the evening because of the heat. Our guests were very complimentary of the food. The service was always on timed and coordinated so that each table received all of their plates simultaneously. I couldn't be happier with Harvest Moon's performance and highly recommend them!

I have now used harvest Moon for 2 weddings that were 3 years apart. After the first I was so impressed by the way they took care of us and their flexibility that there was no question we would use them again. It was great to see that 3 years later they are still completely on top of things! This wedding was at a farm with HMC handling the rehearsal BBQ on Friday night in one area of the property, the ceremony at another area, and then the cocktail hour outside the barn, dinner and dancing in the barn. They made it flow and were totally prepared each time the event moved to another space. We got so many compliments on the food and they were great help deciding our menus. THE PERSONAL SERVICE IS EXCEPTIONAL!!!

When looking for catering for an event, your search should start and end with Harvest Moon! April and her team could not have been easier to work with. They are the perfect blend of professional and friendly. They were incredibly attentive to my wife and I on the day of our wedding (having a server follow us for cocktail hour drinks/snacks during our photos!) and continued to go above and beyond with all of our guests. Afterwards, the staff had set aside our favorite wines/beers from the wedding and had also saved us plates of the food from the wedding.

I couldn't imagine working with any other caterer in the Charlottesville area! The food was excellent, the service was exceptional, and the value was outstanding. I would not only recommend selecting Harvest Moon for any event, I would endorse them!
