Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Book My Event?

To book your event, we ask that you pay a 25% deposit and provide a credit card authorization and signed catering contract. By paying the deposit and signing the contract, you are only reserving the date of your event. You will be able to make revisions to your menu, headcount, timeline, and rentals up to 2 weeks before your event date when all final details and payments are due.

 

What Does the Service Fee Include?

The 25% fee is all-inclusive. All pre-event planning, such as proposal revisions, rental order revisions, menu consultations, and site visits, are covered under the service fee. In addition, the service fee also includes labor onsite, culinary prep work performed before your event, and the transportation of equipment to your event.

If your event is more than 30 miles from our kitchen, mileage and travel fees will be included.

Gratuity is not included in this fee, nor is it required. However, if you feel we performed and met all of your hopes and dreams and would like to treat us, please tell your planner or coordinator, and they will include it. We thank you in advance!

 

Do I Have to Have a Wedding Planner/Event Coordinator?

Short answer: no, it is not required.

However, we strongly suggest hiring an event coordinator to help you with all of your event planning needs. We find that the process is seamless when an event planner is hired to handle communication between client(s) and vendor(s), especially weddings! There are so many fantastic event planners in the area, and we are happy to suggest a few if you need help!

 

What Do I Need to Know when Scheduling a Tasting?

When you are ready to book a tasting, please let your planner know, and they will schedule a date and time that works for both parties. No planner? No problem! We will make sure there’s a spot for you on our calendar.

If you have not yet booked your event, the tasting fee is $50 per person (event planners are complimentary), and we allow up to 6 guests to attend.

The tasting fee is fully refundable once you book. It will be credited towards your event total.

Your tasting menu is fully customizable and will be curated by you with the help of your planner. The standard tasting includes three appetizers, one salad, two mains, and two sides.
Your final tasting menu is due ten days before your tasting.

 

Can I Provide My Own Alcohol?

Of course! We are happy to review your order and make recommendations. If you’d like, we have a mixer and garnish packages available. Please let us know if you’re interested in adding one.

 

Why Do I Need to Rent Kitchen Equipment?

If your venue is not outfitted with the proper cooking elements, we’ll need to rent them. We cook the majority of your menu onsite to ensure freshness and quality. Having a fully functional kitchen helps us maintain our standards of food preparation.
