In order for Savory Palate Catering to secure an event date, Savory Palate Catering must have received a signed contract from the client accompanied by a 50% deposit.

Guest Count

A guaranteed guest count is due seven days prior to the event. If the guarantee is not received by the designated date, your last estimated number of guests will be considered your final guarantee. You will be charged for this number, or the actual number, whichever is greater. If there is an increase in the number of guests after the seven day deadline, the client will be responsible for paying the per person price for the overage and the exact menu cannot be guaranteed. Menu items are subject to fresh market availability and substitutions may be required.


Your proposal will state the number of service staff required for your event. Please note that service hours include travel time to and from your event.

Outside Food

Savory Palate Catering, once contracted, is responsible for providing all food for the event. If the client requests to provide food from another source, it will require prior approval.

Leftover Food

Due to health and safety regulations, food remaining at the end of the event is the property of Savory Palate Catering and will be left for the guests' enjoyment only at our discretion. 


Savory Palate Catering will be happy to make all rental arrangements on your behalf. This will incur a 15% service charge based on the rental charge.


The balance will be due 5 days prior to the scheduled event and is based on the guaranteed guest count.


Pricing does not include gratuity. Gratuity is at the discretion of the client.

Methods of Payment

Cash, check or PayPal. Please make checks payable to: Savory Palate Catering.

In the Event of Cancellation

Written notice of cancellations must be received within 30 days of the event in order to receive a full refund of deposit less any unrecoverable costs. If the event needs to be rescheduled and notice is given within 7 business days of the event, Savory Palate Catering will credit the deposit toward the client's next event, less charges for any unrecoverable costs. If the client is unable to reschedule, the 50% deposit is non-refundable and the client will be billed for food and materials purchased for the event.
