Services

Various Serving Style

Service styles play an important role in the success of a catered event. The popular selection are usually the less expensive one such as buffet or cafeteria service. If the event has VIPs we usually recommend Dome service or Pre-Set Service depending on the event hours and menu selection.

  • Tray Service (Popular)

    Food is put on trays in the kitchen and passed by servers. Guests serve themselves, using cocktail napkins provided by the server. This is a typical style of service used for upscale receptions. This style of service is only appropriate for “finger food.”

buffet
  • Buffet Service (Popular)

    Foods are arranged on tables. Guests usually move along the buffet line and serve themselves. When their plates are filled, guests take them to a dining table to eat. Servers usually provide beverage service at table side.

  • Dome Service (Popular)

    Foods are pre-set in large dome set in the middle of the table. Guests will help themselves from the dome and servers will serve drinks only.

live
  • Action/Live Stations

    Similar to a buffet. Chefs prepare and serve foods at the buffet (rather than in the kitchen). Foods that lend themselves well to action station service include wok stations, satay, roast lamb, pastas, grilled meats, omelets and flaming desserts  These stations are sometimes called “performance stations” or “exhibition cooking.”

cafeteria
  • Cafeteria Service

    Similar to a buffet. Guests stand in line, but do not help themselves. They are served by chefs and/or servers from behind the buffet line. This is a way to control portion sizes. Sometimes the inexpensive items, such as salads, will be self-service, and the expensive meat items will be served by an attendant.

fullset
  • Pre-set Service

    Food that is already on the dining tables when guests are seated. Since pre-set foods will be on the tables for a few minutes before they are consumed, you must pre-set only those that will retain sanitary and culinary qualities at room temperatures. Most common are bread and butter, but often the appetizer will be pre-set as well. For lunches with a limited time frame, occasionally salad and dessert will be pre-set.
