I would HIGHLY recommend Palate Pleasers to any bride! I met with Eric to do my tasting and discuss the design of my cake. Everyone was extremely friendly in the shop. Eric was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. The picture I brought with me was of an extremely intricate lace design overlay on a four tier cake. Eric said that wouldn't be a problem to replicate and he was correct! The first couple of samples Eric personally did not like so he painstakingly searched the internet for the picture I brought in and then ordered the exact molds from that cake! I was blown away by how much he cared about making my cake perfect! The day of my wedding the cake was absolutely beautiful and looked just like I wanted! We had four different flavors of cake and they were all delicious! I would definitely recommend Palate Pleasers to anyone who wants to pay a GREAT price and get exceptional service!

Palate pleasers did my food for my reception. First off, the food was beyond AMAZING. I had multiple people say that our chicken dish was the best chicken they had ever had. Sally worked with us and made my stress disappear when it came with the food and alcohol. She ordered the alcohol through a distributor they work with. She ordered all of my rentals so there was truly nothing to worry about. They worked with my budget and allowed my husband and I to do some monthly payments. I would recommend them to anyone!

Our experience with Palate Pleasers was fantastic! I had gone to several cakeries in Annapolis and Baltimore looking for some inspiration and great tasting wedding cake. Only a few, but once I talked to Palate Pleasers, I knew my search was over. I had seen a picture of a wedding cake that I fell in love with and was told that it would be very expensive since the flowers would have to be done in Fondant. I made an appointment with Eric @ Palate Pleasers, and immediately, he told me that it wouldn't be a problem to do the flowers in the buttercream icing. When I tasted the cake, fillings and icing I had chosen for our wedding cake, I was so thrilled with the high quality of the ingredients. The cost was exceptionally reasonable. We even had other mini desserts as options and they were great, too. Once our wedding day arrived and I saw the cake, I was So Impressed!! The cake looked exactly as I had envisioned and everyone RAVED about the taste!! Palate Pleasers is THE place to go for your wedding cake.

We have known and loved Palate Pleasers for years so when we got engaged we honestly didn't consider any other caterer! The food they produce, particularly for large events, is so impressive. We went with a French theme for our reception food as we met in France and wanted to honor that connection. We had appetizers including Mini croque monsieurs, French-style pizzas, fresh oysters, cheeses, etc. Our main courses included boeuf bourguignon, mushroom tarts, trout, and more, and it was all divine. The boeuf bourguignon especially was so rich and flavorful. I can't tell you how many people commented on how good the food was.

Dessert was my main priority and we ended up with an amazing dessert tower including four cupcake flavors, mini chocolate mousse cups, mini lemon tarts, and mini apple tarts. They were all excellent and made me very happy!

The only feedback I would share is that I think they might benefit from having an organized office manager to help keep things straight. We had a couple small hiccups--when we arrived at the reception only 9 tables were set up instead of 10. Luckily we had arrived early to confirm everything was ready and when I pointed it out to the person overseeing setup it was very quickly fixed, with a 10th table setup within a minute. We also noticed that during all of our preparation meetings they were taking notes on a legal pad and then ripping off the page and putting it in our folder. There were a couple small details and changes that did not get implemented and I imagine it was due to the organization system.

They also catered a few lead up events during the wedding week and everything was flawless. They took great care in coordinating the menus for each event to make sure nothing was repeated so our guests enjoyed a variety of foods. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and are so glad Palate Pleasers did all our catering. I can't wait to put in an order for our first anniversary dinner and cake!!

Palate Pleasers provided absolutely wonderful food for our wedding, and were very willing to work with me on the menu. The serving staff arrived on time, were neat and tidy, and unobtrusive during the wedding. I recommend the warm crab dip as an appetizer, and the salmon as a main course, since my guests raved about both! They offered to provide everything that was needed for a home wedding, thus saving me lots of time and stress. I would recommend them for a wedding or other special event. They know their business well, and made this special day easier by being so professional.

I can't say enough amazing things about this team! Everything from start to finish was so easy, fun, and professional with them. They were so helpful in giving us suggestions and guiding us with making food selections for our wedding. The taste testing was amazing and we were so excited to eat at our wedding!! They did a site visit and went over all of the details with me so we made sure we had everything set and I could relax! They also really worked with our budget so that we could still have amazing food that was affordable. Everyone loved our wedding food and my groom and I enjoyed it immensely! It was fresh, flavorful and beautifully set up! I couldn't thank them enough on the wedding day for providing such wonderful food and quality service. I didn't have to worry at all!! To the palate pleaders team-thank you! Keep up the good work!
