“We decided to have our wedding reception at Events by Grateful Palate next to Shooters and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue! Leslie was amazing to work with and since this was a destination wedding for us we really relied on her to work with us and answer the many questions we had leading up to the event. We went over every detail: decorations, food, music, drinks, etc. and she went above and beyond to ensure that everything was planned perfectly. We also worked with Tim the day of the event and he was absolutely amazing! We wanted for nothing that day and we have both Leslie and Tim to thank. Events by Grateful Palate is the perfect venue for your wedding. And Shooters is right next door…you can’t go wrong! Food was incredible and you can’t beat the view! Being from Maryland we are VERY picky about our crabcakes and I can tell you…theirs really lived up to our standards!”

“I just wanted to say thank you for assisting me with putting together this awesome event! The guests couldn’t have been happier with the venue and just raved about the staff and how beautiful the venue was for our event. I think people enjoyed sitting outside on the dock too. Your assistance with the food, flowers, linens, and placement of tables and seating made it the perfect evening!  I heard from many of our guests about the outstanding service and friendly staff!! ‘They knew what I liked and kept bringing it back to me.’ The bartenders were great! Very attentive! My friends mentioned how they never had an empty glass and even came around the bar on one occasion to bring a beer to a friend at the bar tables. They knew what guests were drinking and Candace did a fabulous job with our sponsor.  The passed hors d’oeuvres were delicious.  Your staff was AWESOME!! It was so nice to come in and have so much help with set up. It gave me a chance to have a cocktail and calm my nerves before the event started, so thank you!”

“Just wanted to thank you again for helping make my mom’s party the wonderful success that it was. I don’t know what we would have done without you.  You were a fabulous director, great to work with, and made sure everything was executed with the upmost proficiency.  We are receiving rave reviews of the night, from the food to the flowers to the wait staff and beyond.  You were a very important part of all this and we appreciate it more than you know.  With our warmest regards.”

“I just wanted to follow up in writing our discussion last night as the Anniversary Celebration was winding down because I think it is important.
I wanted to go on record as extending to you and your entire staff the highest praise for an incredibly well executed party. Beginning with the initial interaction with the valets, moving on to the ultimate in bar tenders and all others throughout the evening, every one of your employees could not have been more professional and , just as important, NICE, during the entire event. Their friendly smiles and just the perfect amount of familiarity were the ideal compliments to the ultimate professionalism as they carried out their “duties.” I put “duties” in quotes because their manner was one of welcoming friends to their home to generate the perfect sense of hospitality and a real sense of wanting to guarantee that all the guests were experiencing a truly special party.  I’ve been to a lot of events in many different venues but I can easily say your staff made Bob and Peter’s celebration one of, if not the, very, very best.”
