    After being blown off by another vendor, we were in search of another caterer for our wedding. New Leaf Catering came highly recommended by our florist and our baker, so we decided to give them a call. From the get-go, Scott was so accommodating - he not only created an amazing menu, but stressed the fact that he and his staff were there for us to help tie up any loose ends that we may have forgotten. We were always in communication, and everything went off without a hitch! We went in for our tasting and he created an entire lunch for me, my now-husband, and my mother. He let us know that if we didn't like anything, things could easily be changed. He asked us what we liked/didn't like about each dish so we could all be on the same page and make improvements/changes where necessary (but everything was delicious!). He created a menu of foods that people could eat while walking around (we stressed the importance of a casual but classy reception; we didn't want guests having to use a knife for anything). All of the guests could not stop raving about the food and about how full they were at the end of the night! Unfortunately we, the bride and groom, were so busy racing around talking to people that we didn't have too much of an appetite :(. The plates looked small at first glance, but were packed with delicious, healthy, filling foods. The staff working the wedding (the waiters/waitresses and the chef) were more than attentive to the guests, making sure they didn't want for anything. We couldn't be happier with our choice to use New Leaf Catering, and we know anyone else who chooses to use them will be just as elated!

    New Leaf Catering never ceases to amaze me. I don't understand how you can be doing several high profile events at the same time. I can hardly cook myself dinner. Yet they always manage to pull off great tasting food and they try so hard to make an event memorable. I like a small business who promises and delivers. I overheard another guest saying it was so good that they will remember them the next time they need catering. Me too.

    With 2 months to go until my daughter's wedding, and after disappointing results with other catering resources, I contacted Scott Robertson at New Leaf Catering upon a recommendation from The David Rohr Floral Studio. Immediately, Scott was responsive and reassuring. We met at the venue to discuss layout & menu ideas. Even though conflicting schedules made it difficult to sit down for the actual tasting & menu determination until a week before the wedding, Scott somehow made it all happen as if we were the only client on his schedule. The heat is a huge consideration for a June wedding in Palm Springs. Scott developed a weather-friendly small plate menu that was both beautifully presented and scrumptious to eat. The guests raved about the food and everyone was well-satisfied. The New Leaf staff - Chef William, along with Gabriel, Melanie and Camille were absolute gems! They were attentive and considerate, serving water to guests often to make sure folks stayed hydrated. Most importantly, the Bride and Groom couldn't have been more pleased and proud to provide their guests with New Leaf's top-quality food and more-than-professional service. Thanks to Scott and his staff for their part in making our event perfect!

    New Leaf just finished an event for me in La Quinta. I would definitely use them again. The crew - Catlin, Casey, David, Tammi, Dumitri, Sean Webb, and Tony Santucci were absolutely fabulous! They were all friendly, professional, personable, and courteous. The food was delicious! The crew always went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of (thank you Catlin). Yummy salads, yummy dishes and to die for desserts. And the special cocktail they created for us was wonderful! Presentation, beautiful! I'm hoping we do another event in the area so we can use New Leaf again. Thank you Scott and Chissa! Until next time...

    My husband and I got married at Korakia Pensione last weekend and I have to say, that our guests are STILL talking about the food! Scott, Luis and the rest of the New Leaf Catering team knocked this one out of the park and DELIVERED. We hosted a welcome/pool party for our guests Friday night and had a bounty of food (we chose to go Mexican with tacos, tamales, churros/sopapillas and MARGARITAS!). For the wedding reception, we opted for a family-style service, with a plated salad course, and every morsel was devoured by our guests. Scott and Luis are a power team and so much fun to work with...Ole! xo

    I can't say enough about how grateful I am for Scott and his amazing crew at New Leaf Catering. I hired New Leaf Catering for our wedding and Scott went above and beyond our wildest expectations to make our day perfect. The food was absolutely remarkable, the service was beyond what we expected and the open line of communication leading up to the wedding made the whole experience feel so customized. My wife and I were able to add the input that we wanted to but at the end of the day, the experience that New Leaf Catering was able to provide was absolutely priceless. Communication channels were great and we were able to bounce ideas back and forth until we settled on our menu and the whole process was very smooth. There isn't any other catering company that I would trust to cater an event over Scott and his crew at New Leaf Catering.

    New Leaf catered our rehearsal dinner and wedding in Palm Springs. Both nights, the food was beautiful and delicious. They worked hard to deliver meals which were reflective of our taste, style, and budget. Scott, Chissa, and the rest of the team are a pleasure to work with

    This review is long overdue. Scott and his team at New Leaf catered both my wedding in Joshua Tree as well as a small dinner in Palm Springs back in September, and we couldn't have been happier with both. From the very early stages of planning, Scott always made himself available to discuss the menu and the budget. He did an amazing job designing two delicious menus without ever placing us outside of our budgetary comfort zone. He has great instincts and a very pleasant demeanor. He even organized a spectacular tasting for my future wife and mother-in-law. They were beyond impressed. When the big day came, his entire staff was friendly, courteous and fun. We felt very well taken care of without ever feeling smothered or overwhelmed. They gave us a true fine-dining experience in the middle of the desert. Everything was perfect. If you're looking for a caterer who uses farm fresh, seasonal and organic ingredients and doesn't pressure you to overspend, look no further. As consumers go, I'm the pickiest, and I have zero complaints. Scott and his team hit a grand slam.

    My partner and I contracted with Scott and the New Leaf team for our wedding in May. As most would approach the process, we received bids and met with several catering firms in Palm Springs and surrounding area and could not have been more pleased with New Leaf. Scott was incredibly responsive on the front end of the process, which was not the case with many of the firms to whom we reached out. The decision to select New Leaf was made easily after our face to face meeting and tasting. Scott is not only putting out great food, but he brings great energy to the process. Engagement level from the entire team at New Leaf gave us great confidence throughout the planning period as we knew we were in good hands. As for the actual day- we, along with our guests felt they were exceptional. I've always been of the school of thought that food produced in bulk has its limitations, but everything was fantastic. We went with a fresh, clean menu, served family style for our 85 guests (ask about the sea bass if you are considering New Leaf). Service, attentiveness and of course the food were all amazing. New Leaf brought a casual, but sophisticated elegance to our wedding that truly added to our amazing, memorable experience. We offer our great appreciation for Scott, Chissa and the entire New Leaf team for the great work and genuine, personal touch. Thank you for taking such pride in the work you do-everything was perfect!

    My wife and I had decided to elope in Palm Springs and the photographer we hired suggested having someone cook a meal in the house we were staying in rather than eating out at a restaurant the night of the wedding. Since there were only five of us, we loved the idea. After asking for some referrals I contacted Scott and New Leaf Catering. While everything about our wedding day was pretty amazing, hiring New Leaf Catering ended our day on an amazing note. Scott promptly responded to every text, email or phone call. We initially requested a sample menu because we had no idea what to ask for and it was so perfect that we didn't make a single change. On the day of the wedding, every course was perfectly executed and delicious, the service was courteous and professional and when they left, the kitchen was cleaner than when they arrived. If you're planning a small event or dinner party, I could not recommend New Leaf Catering enough. Just hire them now!

    Absolutely the best. Choose them for our next event. We would absolutely use them again. We were introduced to Scott and his team through our wedding venue, the Korakia hotel. Everyone spoke highly of them and we immediately knew once we met Scott and did our tasting. We had a 100 person wedding. They completely customized a dinner menu for us based on what we were looking for (versus something preset off the list). They even let us to a second tasting. The food was so good when we tasted that we were worried about maintaining the quality for 100. And yet they did. We got so many complements from so many guests. And the pricing was reasonable. They also let us do our own bar program (which in hindsight we made more complex than needed to be) and never complained. Such a fantastic team. Our day of point Catlin was lock-step with Scott and managed the heck out of everything. Waiters were where they needed to be. Bartenders hauled heavy boxes in 105 degree heat. They showed up early. Got everything set up. Stayed around after. Took everything down and even rebuilt a bar in our room. These guys are the top. While always having a smile on their face and making us feel like our wedding was special to them. I highly recommend them for your wedding or event. One pro tip - do a final review call the week of your event, especially if there is a rentals company involved as well. Between our planer, New Leaf, and our rentals company there was a lot of moving pieces. Everyone is very busy and focus on our event really happened the week of. We were glad to get that call done early so we could add a few things everyone had forgotten and eliminate any stress day of.

    I highly recommend New Leaf to cater your next event! When my husband and I met Scott in person for the first time he made us feel comfortable and we really enjoyed his open and accommodating approach; we knew immediately we wanted him to cater our wedding. I recommend meeting with Scott for a tasting. Scott's food is excellent and he adjusted his menu to meet our needs and budget. Also, Catlin (Scott's assistant) is simply amazing! Catlin is approachable and answered all of my questions. The entire New Leaf team is top notch and I will continue to use New Leaf for any future catering needs. Again, highly recommend New Leaf!!

    I can't even describe how happy I was with the service the team from New Leaf provided for my wedding in Palm Springs in September. From the moment the crew of 3 arrived to the moment they left, I felt 100% taken care of and that the success of our amazing and delicious dinner was all their doing. First off, as soon as they arrived they were quick to set up and get to work without having to ask me one question (which I was grateful for since every other detail I had been running around implementing myself along with some dear friends). They knew what they were doing and were able to take care of everything on their own. The drinks table was set up immediately and was just as I would have done myself. The table settings were laid out impeccably. Hors D'oeuvres were being passed around and everyone was happy with food and drink in hand before the ceremony. Then the dinner. Our Chef, Tre was simply amazing. I was pleased to hear a lot of my guests went up to him to thank him for the delicious meal, he deserved all that praise and more. Not one of my guests didn't comment on how delicious everything was. We served family style dishes such as tri tip steak, chicken, a ridiculous caesar salad with potato croutons (they were the hit of the night, as everyone commented on them), a rice pilaf with veggies and some assorted veggie sides. We had very minimal leftovers the next day because throughout the night, everyone went back into the fridge to have more plates of the food! Our 2 servers, Debbie and Sara were the saviors of the evening. Always keeping everyone's glasses full, and taking care of everything with ease and with such wonderful personalities. They were attentive to me in the sense that since I am pregnant, I always had a yummy virgin cocktail in hand. They even went above and beyond and set up the most beautiful cake table decorations for our cake cutting. They really thought of every little detail and went above and beyond. I also owe everything to Scott who worked with me from the beginning. I simply had to describe what I wanted very briefly and he completely understood my taste and vision. He was so great to collaborate with and accepted every single one of my requests with ease. I was even surprised he was so accommodating with everything I was providing myself such as the alcohol, the cake and furniture rental. I was prepared for an event company to try and make feel I should be using their services for everything and that certain things wouldn't be allowed. I didn't hear one word about any of that, just that it be perfectly ok. He was also more than helpful when I was trying to bring down the cost. No issues from his end, only helpful suggestions and positive responses to how I wanted to alter the budget. I know this review sounds incredibly mushy and there are way too many praises of how amazing everything was, but I can't help it, it was perfect. I couldn't believe how much they took care of for the evening. My thought was they were there to simply serve the food and drinks, not pay attention to all the details that they did. I really recommend using New Leaf for your event, I can assure you won't be disappointed and will actually be surprised how a company could go so above and beyond what you'd expect to make your event memorable and special. I read in some other reviews the only negative comment was the length of time to took for responses. While I can attest this was true in my case as well (though there was not a length of time that caused any disruption in my planning) I will come to their defense. I can see why they are so busy, they do great work and not surprising, are constantly working on events. You will be grateful that they give 100% of their attention to you when your time comes and they aren't busy on the phone talking to or emailing other clients.

    I am with a large group visiting Cathedral City and called New Leaf in hopes of them being able to cater for us. They completely exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond to make our meal with them perfect. Even though we didn't have the largest budget they worked with us and provided us with everything we needed! The food was delicious and was devoured by our group. Scott was so helpful and made this process for us so easy, we all know that large groups aren't the easiest to work with. Since we make the trip out here once every year I plan on using New Leaf every time we visit. Great food! Great service! Great people!

    I hired Scott and his team for a bachelorette party in Palm Springs. After a night out on the town, the very last thing we wanted to do was wake up Saturday morning and make a group breakfast or get even get out of our PJs to go go town. You can imagine what a dream it was to have New Leaf show up with hot coffee, juice, fresh fruit, eggs, sausage/bacon, yogurt, pastries and mixed greens and handle the set up and all the plate and serving ware. It was a feast for the 12 of us and MUCH LESS than the cost of going out. When menu planning Scott even handled our list of food allergies with ease. The next day, we simply left the empty plates and containers for pick up. It just doesn't get easier or more affordable. THANK YOU NEW LEAF! I have already recommended you and will do so in the future.

    Scott is AMAZING! He just helped me with my husband's 50th bday party over the weekend. His service is spot on and he came through on every detail. I also ordered a cake and wanted it to be extra special. What I received was above and beyond what I could have ever imagined! He took the photos I sent him and blew us away with a cake that was like no other. I can't wait to do business with him again. Scott was a referral from the owner of a house we rented, he is going into my file and I will refer him to all I know.

    New leaf catering is by far the best catering business in the desert. I've used them multiple times now (they have even catered an event in San Diego for me) and every single time I have been impressed. Scott and Corey always work around my budget to make a menu that accommodates a vast number of people. They even provided valet and made a dish based off of my wife's old recipe that I brought in, it was delicious! As far as good businesses go in the Desert, this is the epitome. If you doubt this company, do yourself a favor and go in for a sample of their food, I promise you will feel the same. Scott has done so much more for me than this simple Yelp review can convey. I also disagree with Dave (no offense) I've yet to have a bad soup from their soup kitchen. Thanks NLC for the awesome experiences, I will be using this company again!

    We hired New Leaf to cater our wedding on February 28th. Scott was terrific! After our initial communication, he presented us with a menu that was exactly what we were looking for. At the tasting, when we had the opportunity to meet him in person, I knew right away that I wanted to work with him. He really listened to what we had to say, and made it clear that his goal was to make our day perfect, which he did. The food was fantastic! His team delivered the same quality for 60 people that we experienced during the tasting for six. As someone who puts on events around the country, believe me, that is not always the case. My guests were thrilled and couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was. Thank you, Scott!

    We chose New Leaf to cater our wedding on November 9th. Scott came to our house and we walked through the whole event, nailing down logistics. From beginning to end, they responded immediately to every email or phone call. They fulfilled all their commitments and more. The food was top-notch and beautifully served. One of the staff members stayed late and made cocktails for the small group of partiers who stayed late. We really appreciated that! We will use New Leaf again!
