    Outstanding in every aspect

    Premier Catering was awesome and did a fantastic job for our Gala. Michael was extremely responsive to my questions and to every detail. He worked with us to do exactly what we wanted and was able to make helpful suggestions for us to consider. The food was excellent and plentiful. The bar service was great and very friendly. Their prices are very reasonable!!!! I would definitely use them again and again and again!!!! The food was excellent!!!!

    We were married at East Fork Country Estate on 08/18/18 and had to use their in-house caterer, Premiere Catering. At first I was hesitant but enjoyed the tasting they set up for us. I also requested that there be some vegan and some gluten-free choices for our guests. Every email exchange was prompt, professional, and assuring. When it came time for the big day and dinner, it was all just so delicious. In fact, several guests were surprised at how delicious everything was and two even asked for their contact information!
    I would consider them again if I needed a caterer. Seriously, request the mac and cheese. Trust us!

    Samantha and John,
    Thank you so much for letting us know that you enjoyed what we had presented for you and your guests. The Tillamook White Cheddar Mac & Cheese is one of our favorites as well.

    Sincerely,
    Premiere Catering

    Absolutely amazing! Premiere Catering went above and beyond for our wedding. Everyone raved that we have the best wedding food that they have ever had. Michael and his team were amazing to work with and wanted nothing but my husband and I to have the best day we could ever have. I could go on about this company. It is completely worth ever cent that you pay them and more!

    Premiere Catering- The team at Premiere Catering was fantastic throughout the whole wedding process. From the tasting 6 months prior to the wedding, communication leading up to the big day, and then the quality of food day of was simply AMAZING. Not only was the service exceptional they thought of everything and were extremely accommodating; my wife is Gluten and dairy free and they made sure food was prepared in separate locations, and made sure her food didn’t come into contact with rest of buffet. Guests at our wedding raved on how delicious things tasted, and how great the service was. Choosing Premiere Catering was a great decision for us! Taylor

    Our daughter and her new husband chose Premiere Catering for their July 15, 2018 wedding and we couldn't be happier. The attention to detail and personal service provided by Michael was phenomenal! Everything went as planned without any hiccups on their part at all. Michael was in constant communication the entire time and answered every question quickly. It's obvious that he is a seasoned veteran in this business and clearly knows how to throw a party! I would choose Premiere again without any reservation. By the way, go with the brisket pasta for your meal- wow!

    So incredibly blessed and grateful we used Premiere Catering Inc. for my daughter's wedding! The food was superb. All the guests were saying how delicious it was. The service was outstanding. And I can't say enough about Michael! He has gone above and beyond to provide flawless service.

    My now-husband and I first met John a few months before our wedding after seeing some good reviews and were so impressed with the professionalism and expertise he provided.

    He never tried to pressure us into anything we didn’t want and always asked for our opinions first. He was able to give cost saving advice on some of the decorations and stayed within our budget. He also made the experience of picking out our food/decorations enjoyable and always had excellent tips to share.

    I never had to stress about my wedding because John took care of EVERYTHING; food, drinks, decorations, timeline, you name it! On top of that he also always responded to my calls and emails within 10min during the busy wedding season! John and his team showed up early to the venue and transformed the bland, boring space into a beautiful, relaxing wedding!

    I’ve had wedding buffets in the past and really wasn’t looking forward to having one at my own but we couldn’t afford a sit down service dinner. The minute we tried the food at our tasting all my worries went out the door. The entire menu was delicious, it was so unique we almost couldn’t make up our minds. My favorite part of the whole day was the food, I’m not kidding, ask my husband!! John had someone assigned to me and my groom the whole day to make sure we were fed! I’m gluten free and my guests aren’t, so John made an extra special meal just for me!!

    All of my guests commented after the wedding how great the food was and said it was one of the best meals they’ve ever had at a wedding. We even had some extra food to take home which we put in the freezer. It was so nice coming home to delicious prepped meals after our honeymoon.

    I would recommend Primiere Catering to anyone who wants delicious food, professional staff, and stress free planning!!

    Michael at Premiere Catering made us feel very comfortable picking out everything we wanted to make our wedding perfect. From going with us to pick our linens, to the complimentary tasting, we knew this would be the perfect fit. Our reception at the West End Ballroom was setup beautifully by Premiere Catering and all our guests talked about how good the food was. It was a perfect fit for us and we are so happy we chose Premiere!

    Caity and Spencer,

    Thank you, you were both so amazing to work with, your vision of how the room was to be set up to the smallest detail was simply amazing. Your guests were so wonderful to assist as well, they enjoyed the menu that we had created for your reception.

    Sincerely,

    I have used Premiere Catering on a couple of times for family events and I have always been impressed by their professionalism, creativity and their amazing tasty food, so I knew that when it came to our wedding, I had to ask them to cater it.

    I love good food and all varieties. My (now) husband has a much smaller window of food that he likes and he is very picky. So, coming up with a menu that satisfied both of us was a challenge, but Premiere came up with the most perfect menu that truly knocked us both off our feet (and all our guests). We had 250 people and I wanted a plated salad and the rest served family style.

    Not only was good food a priority, but service was also very important to me. The Premiere staff was truly incredible. Everyone was served quickly, and no detail was missed by the staff. The food was delicious, hot and presented well. Premiere also made the desserts and the set up the dessert bar, which was not only beautiful, but the rice krispie treats were the best I ever ate.

    I am so grateful we chose them.

    Where do I begin?!
    This was on the list of caterers for the Foundry at Lake Oswego. I did my research and found that John and his team were the best option. He was very professional and the food was f***ing INCREDIBLE! We were able to choose out everything so easily and really modify the menu how we needed. Using rentals was a breeze. The room set up was perfect and during the reception John even carried my plate to my seat! (I appreciate that so much btw) He was so amazing with going around and checking on everyone.
    Basically this was the best decision my husband and I could have made when choosing a caterer.
    To John and your team, thank you so much for everything! You made our day so perfect!

    My wife and I had the pleasure of using Premiere Catering for our wedding on September 16th. Where do I start..everything was excellent. We give Premiere 5 stars on everything -- from how they handled our initial interest and questions, the year of planning with their fast and reliable responsiveness, and finally leading up to our big day. They executed everything perfectly -- service and food was an A++!!! Planning a wedding in Oregon while living full-time in Chicago definitely had it's stressful moments, but John and Premiere were nothing short of patient, understanding and confident throughout the whole process. If you are looking for a catering company with vision, dedication, professionalism and cooking talent, look no further because you found your vendor. I, in good faith and as a cook in the industry myself, recommend Premeire Catering 100%. John and your staff, thank you for playing a part in creating memories that will last a lifetime!

    I am very pleased with Premiere and their food and service at my recent wedding. We researched and tasted at various catering companies and Premiere definitely stood out. The value you get with them is amazing! Michael and the team at Premiere were very responsive from the beginning. Not only did they include a lot of things that other places wanted to charge us extra for (linens, napkins, glassware set-up), they offered many different suggestions to make sure that we received exactly what we wanted both with catering and otherwise. They also gave us exact amounts of different decor we would need and how much alcohol and suggested brands for our guest count. My now husband and I live in Nashville and they were very accommodating of our schedule and met with us when we visited Oregon as well as allowed us to bring our alcohol, menus, decor, and food signs the week of the wedding so we wouldn't have to worry about getting it to the venue the day of. The set up was beautiful and the food was delicious! We got so many compliments on the food from our guests. I loved the variety you could choose from and it really allows for any dietary restrictions or preferences for all of your guests. Premiere staff made myself and my groom a priority and made sure we had appetizers and drinks and food all night! Everything was very organized and the left overs were packaged up nicely for my parents to take home. I couldn't have asked for a better company to hire as our wedding caterer! Would highly recommend them for any event!

    Had a last minute change with our previous caterer a couple months before our wedding and these guys seriously were AMAZING. The tasting was so professional and delicious. When it came to our wedding day we had plenty of food for our guests and we still have people telling us how good it was. Would hire them again for any catering need! 8

    I am so happy we went with Premiere Catering! We used The Foundry at Oswego Point, and they are one of the caterers you can choose from, and I cannot even begin to express how happy I am that we went with them. From the beginning, everything was instantaneously more than the other companies I spoke with, as they offered an in person consultation or one by email. We met in person with John, and it was a pretty quick decision after that. We got our personalized quote, and after a few back and forth exchanges, all of which were very quick, we settled on them. We then met and got to taste not only things that we had chosen for the menu, but also some additional items incase we wanted to change. The food was amazing in that tasting, so we were pretty excited about that. Included in the price was the dishes, the linens, and tablecloths, as well as silverware and glasses. We also got the bar package, which was completely worth it as well. They were also very clear on the fact that they have the bride and groom go through the buffet line first to ensure that they eat, which ended up being extremely helpful!
    Premiere was also fast about letting us know when they had got our checks.
    Day of, we were even more excited that we had gone with them. The food was amazing, and the buffet looked incredible. We received so many comments on how great the food was! Everything went so soothly, and the tables looked awesome. Also, when we were taking the rest of our photos after the ceremony, during our cocktail hour, one of the servers made sure to bring us a tray of appetizers to ensure that we got to eat them!
    I highly recommend Premiere Catering for your event! They were incredible to work with, the food was amazing, and the price was the best one we had quotes to us for the amount of food to the cost!

    I cannot thank Michael and the Premier Catering staff enough for helping us on our big day!! Since day one, Michael has been very prompt in answering all of our questions and emails (which there were A LOT of them) and always had great suggestions which helped us make decisions though out this process. The food was AMAZING!!!! All of my guests were absolutely raving about the food and several of them said that it was the best wedding food they had ever had.

    Michael was also very accommodating. My husband is from India and we were allowed to bring in Indian food and Premier set it up with the rest of our food. We also provided most of our own alcohol and we were able to drop it off with Premier a couple days before the wedding so that we didn’t have to worry about making sure it was cold or getting it all there in one piece.

    The day of the wedding went better than we could have hoped for! The Premier staff was very efficient in everything that they did while still paying attention to detail and every single person was very friendly and helpful if we needed something.

    I would definitely recommend Premier Catering to anyone and everyone!!! Thank you Premiere Catering for making our day special!!

    I cannot rave enough about Premier Catering! John is AMAZING! He is extremely accommodating, patient, and flexible. He made our wedding better than we imagined! He was happy to assist with other things outside of catering services the day of the wedding as well as in the weeks leading up to it. The food is incredible and the menu vast! I would not hesitate to book Premier again and I cannot recommend them enough!!

    AMAZING!! We are so lucky to have found Premiere Catering, I contacted so many caterers and as soon as I began chatting with Michael I knew we found our caterer. He was so quick to respond, professional, always very helpful and did a great job being up front with all costs and working within our budget. The tasting sealed the deal, the food was so amazing. We decided on passed houderves, the pasta bar, and the desert buffet. We had people raving about all the food and several guests texted us to see if we could get the recipes for the pasta. The whole staff did amazing, very professional and kind to the guests. It was so important for us to have good food and Premiere exceeded our expectations, I wouldn't hesitate to suggest them to anyone I know!

    John and the team at Premiere were great to work with – their style of communicating worked well with mine (they answered all questions in bullet-form responses to mine, to ensure everything was addressed). They allowed us to be fully flexible with our meal options that we provided, and went above and beyond on any special ingredients or requests we made (oh man – Macaroni and Cheese bar was a success). We added in small details, like a late-night snack – those were a huge hit at the end of the evening! The tasting they offered was paired with commentary: understanding their thought process on how food is put together and offered was nice to hear. They also handled our rentals for us – from ceremony chairs to round plates with silver edging (I know… picky picky!) – they not only handled the contract for the rentals, but also the set up and take down. They had champagne for us in the room after the ceremony, and the team at the bar and wait staff were gracious and fun. I swear they should have joined us all on the dance floor after – so we could all celebrate what a great event they helped with!

    Let me start by saying that food was not an initial priority for my husband and me. We figured that in order to have great food we would have to spend more money that we wanted to. Premiere was on our venue's list of approved caterers and one of three recommended by our coordinator. We picked them because their prices were the lowest. But their food was AMAZING! Absolutely amazing! One month later and we are still getting compliments from guests about the food. The chicken was perfectly cooked and still juicy, the steak is available with three different sauces, and the pasta rustica was delicious (and even better cold the next morning). In addition to the amazing food, Michael was so accommodating during the wedding! While my husband and I were taking pictures outside of the reception hall, he sent a waiter outside to give us some hors d'oeuvres and drinks. He made sure that we had drinks during dinner and he sent us home with leftovers. Also, during our tasting, my husband really liked the fig pizza hors d'oeuvres but we didn't end up picking it. Michael had them make a serving just for my husband! We highly recommend Premiere for catering any party. They were a large part of making our wedding as wonderful as it was!

    My wife and I were initially hesitant to go with them because they were the least expensive preferred caterer for The Foundry at Oswego Pointe. As it turns out, they were the least expensive preferred caterer because they wanted to offer the most value! I couldn't have been more pleased with the service that was offered. Before the wedding they sat down with us and gave us a sample of everything on the menu; I walked away not even needing a lunch! Due to unfortunate circumstances I was unable to get away from work to grab two kegs for the wedding as planned. With one short phone call they graciously picked both of the kegs up for me no problem. They even payed the cost upfront. Then, after the wedding they decided they weren't going to charge me for the two kegs and instead told me to take my wife out to a nice dinner! At the wedding they had an unexpected gift for me to help with the pre-ceremonial jitters! After the ceremony everyone enjoyed superb cooking coupled with top notch service! They truly helped make our wedding great. My wife and I wouldn't have been happier with any other caterer!

    We had an AMAZING experience with John over the months leading up to the wedding and all of the event staff the day of! My husband and I will definitely use them again for future events. The guests continue to talk about the food at our party and they were so easy to work with throughout the entire process!
