Premiere Catering, in particular John McClellan and Sasha, did a great job catering our daughter's wedding. The food was impeccable and the service was great. Several attendees told me that the brisket was the best they had ever had. They did 100% (and more) of what was promised in both the planning and execution of our event. They would be my first choice for our future needs. More...

Premiere Catering helped us by coming through when our previous caterer fell through. They were very flexible, willing to work with our ideas and diet limitations, and very responsive. We are very happy that we chose Premiere Catering for our wedding this past May. More...

Michael and his team provided the dream dining experience we wanted for our wedding guests. He was wonderful to communicate with leading up to the event, tailoring the menu to our every specification. The service was seamless and our guests LOVED the food, we received many compliments. On top of it all, Premiere was the most affordable bid we received. Highly recommend! More...

Absolutely the most professional service from all aspects of planning and execution, very transparent about everything, seamless day-of production, and the food was all delicious and displayed beautifully! We couldn’t be happier about trusting Premiere with our special day! Michael literally took care of any need we had, and promptly at that! More...

Working with John at Premier was amazing! He was so darn knowledgeable and helped us through the whole planning process. It made all our decisions easy after hiring this team for our catering! All of our guests were raving about how good the food was and there was plenty of it! No one was leaving our wedding reception hungry. During the reception, the Premier team was flexible with a few late guests. They were so professional and treated my family like their own. I would 100% recommend Premier Catering to anyone looking to throw a great party! More...

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!!!! More...

Owner Michael was one of the best vendors I worked with through out my wedding process. Literally one of the best, accommodating, and helpful person I have EVER worked with. I had a sit down dinner and the rest of the staff was very nice. My family is hard to please and they had no complaints. Premier catering always answered my emails with 24 hours and were very honest and responsive. The food was also very good! High recommend to anyone looking for a hassel free catering company to make their wedding AWESOME! More...

Premiere catering was a fantastic choice of caterer! We knew we made the right choice even when we told our venue our choice of caterer and they responded, "Oh! they are great, so on top it". Right from the start we appreciated how easy they were to get a hold of and how flexible they were in dealing with our odd schedules (we were planning from out of state). They food was delicious and we are continually receiving comments from our guests on how great it was. We loved that they made sure to have everything set up and helped with take down - making things easier for all of us at the end of the night. They tell you in our consultation that they will make sure the bride and groom get their food, and they certainly did that! Not only did John make sure to offer us a drink as we sat down, a server found us out behind the building as we waited for our photographer (out of the way of guests for a minute) and made sure to offer us some appetizers! They did a great job making sure everything was taken care of. More...

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!

Premiere Catering was an absolute perfect choice for us as our wedding caterers. We couldn't have been happier with the execution of it all and everything leading up to our special day. Michael and John were great to work with from the very start and very accommodating. The day of, John and his staff were fantastic to work with and everything ran as smoothly as possible. Our guests are still raving to us about how amazing the food was, specifically the salmon. We highly recommend Premiere Catering for any and all catering needs! 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 More...

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! More...

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!! More...

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! More...

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!

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.

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! More...

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!

We loved working with Michael and Peter for our wedding. They were flexible with my vegan diet, and really excited about the specifics of table layouts, decor, etc. The guests were really positive and loved the food. They boxed up leftovers for us to eat in the days following the wedding. They were a joy to work with! More...

As a wedding coordinator here in town I get to work with the staff at Premier Catering many times during wedding season. Having seen them in action over the past 8 years I am still so impressed by their out-of-this-world customer service. They are quick with their emails, oh so accommodating, and really do anything they can to make the wedding planning process as smooth as possible. Their prices are great and the value they provide is unheard of. And then there is the food. The food is so delicious, and the menu options are so vast. I just cannot say enough about this team - other than, definitely check them out. You wont be disappointed. More...

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!! More...

When we first started looking at caterers, Premiere was actually the second choice we had. Should've been the first. After the first caterer blew us off (Elephant's), I contacted Michael at Premiere. I discussed with him some ideas and then met and discussed a final menu. When we tried the food way back almost a year before the wedding, it was all amazing. It was just as amazing day of. Michael was prompt and easy to deal with. We did have a fair few communication issues. Namely, my emails kept bouncing back and phone calls were hit and miss if they'd get delivered or not. These were technical things well above Premiere's control, but hey, we still LOVED working with them. My biggest issue, if I can even call it that, is I specified several times I don't want beer bottles, I want beer poured into a glass. Just felt more classy that way to me. Day of, all my guests had bottles of beer in hand - as I had indicated I didn't want.
The food - the most important part of the service they provided - was beyond incredible. It was hot, delicious and my guests were even in the prep kitchen begging for their recipes. When everyone talked about their favorite parts of the wedding, many of them enthusiastically responded with "THE FOOD!" I had a a guest that is a kid (perhaps the most picky patron of them all) rant and rave about how much they loved it. Enough said.
The table linens and extra decor we rented were set up nicely and tastefully, exactly as we had discussed. Premiere was also in charge of setting up the seating for the ceremony. All of that done super well.
Their bartender was awesome and sensible, not necessarily cutting anyone off, but they started pouring less generously for the "frequent visitors" too. The staff that was there day of were all awesome. They took care of us very well!
Premiere had my back on my big day. They came through and the food, service and staff were all exceptional. Words I don't normally use. My only wish: I had grabbed seconds!

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! More...

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! More...

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! More...

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! More...

Food was a very important part of our wedding as we are both from San Francisco and pretty big "foodies." Premiere simply delivered and our cocktail hour/reception were fantastic. We did "family style" for our wedding and added a couple unique items, such as an intermezzo, that was custom made based on a brainstorming session we held with Peter and Michael. We were very pleased with the food and many of guests (a large number being from San Francisco), also raved about the unique dishes and the fun family style.

Gluten Free: When we met with Peter and Michael we were very pleased to hear they are well versed in Celiac Disease/Gluten Free dining and completed a training course on the topic as the bride has Celiac Disease. They were able to adjust the dishes as needed but without losing any flavor or originality. We really didn’t want to sacrifice flavor for Gluten free, and the best part is our guests didn’t even notice because it was done so well. Huge bonus as not all restaurants, caterers, etc know how to properly cook gluten free AND retain amazing flavors.

They also went above and beyond for the bride and groom by bringing us horderves while we were doing photos, and having two crisp specialty cocktails waiting for us right after we said our "I Dos." It was so special and you can tell that Michael and Peter really care about creating an exquisite experience with the food they serve and the service they provide. We were especially pleased with the professionalism of the staff and owners of this fine catering service. Highly recommend for any weddings in the greater Portland area.

Big Bonus: You can BYOB/Wine/Cocktails which is a huge plus! We simply delivered the ingredients for the specialty cocktails to their location and they did the rest. Fantastic!

John and his team made our wedding catering PERFECT. People are still talking about how good the food was. It was 5 star restaurant quality and was delicious. We could not have asked for better caterers to work with. They helped us come up with a menu that fit our wants and our guests preferences. Words cannot express how delicious the food was. They truly made our evening the most magical wedding ever! Thank you so much! More...

WOW!!! We are a same-sex couple and were impressed with their professionalism and attention to details. They made us feel like the single most important client, from the tasting - all the way to the incredible dinner they provided for our 200 guests.
In the beginning, we had a rough idea of serving heavy appetizers. They jumped on our idea and provided amazing recommendations for both passed and station-type options. They began sketching out a vision for our special night right away, and were very responsive to our (seemingly) endless questions. When our May 2nd wedding date came around, we were blown away when we walked into the West End Ballroom to see the vision come to life. They provided for our every need and then some!!
Many of our guests tell us that this was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The Pesto Ravioli, the meatballs, and the mini grilled cheese/tomato soup shooters were BIG hits. That being said, the real culinary stars of the evening were the Cedar Plank Salmon and the Beef Brisket. Even those of us that "don't normally order" Salmon on a menu, were blown away by the flavor combinations. (My Father-in-Law is a Salmon fisherman and he said that this was by far the best he had ever had - Again, WOW!)
John and Peter provided, what felt like, a small army of waitstaff. The entire team was fun, professional, a joy to work with, and they made our guests feel like royalty. The passed hors d'oeuvres, the meal service, the champagne toast, the cake... it all seemed to just happen with zero stress or effort.
We WILL work with Premiere Catering again. John and Peter have our respect, admiration, and complete recommendation.

Premiere Catering was the best choice we could have made for our daughter and new son-in-laws special day. John and Peter gave us the "Nordstrom" customer service, professionalism and were helpful with suggestions to make the food and day even more special. Premier's staff was so attentive to the guests needs and John was always right there for the Bride and Groom.
The guests were so impressed with the food choices and all commented it was delicious!
It truly pays to hire such an "uber" team. Thank you, Premiere Catering and staff!

Our daughter was married on June 26, 2015 at a beautiful venue at Mt Hood Bed and Breakfast. The wedding was a "fairy tale" but what really put it over the top was the food! Mike and his professional crew really took care of our every need. As mother of the bride every guest I talked to commented on the excellent food and presentation. I have been to many weddings where Mike has catered and I've always been impressed, but this wedding was "over the top" delicious and beautifully prepared! Thank You so much for making our special day the best it could be!!! To any future brides.... Premier is the best, dependable, professional caterer! Please let them take the detail of the food and beverage off of your stress list of things to do! You won't be sorry!!! More...

Overall, Premiere Catering is very professional, high quality, and customer oriented. You can tell they definitely care about the quality and presentation of their food and reputation. We were referred to Premiere Catering by our wedding coordinator and wouldn't have it any other way.

We ordered the Plank Salmon, cold yakisoba noodles, and appetizers. Our guests specifically mentioned how good the Cedar Plank Salmon and meatball (appetizers) were. The meatballs were such a hit that the trays were always empty.

Michael and Peter accommodated to all our needs and had great communication and prompt response times throughout the process. When we found out that our venue did not allow caterers to use the ovens or any equipment for cooking, instead of backing out, Michael and Peter found a solution to ensure that no disruptions would occur. While they may not always work with other vendors or partner with other food options, they went above and beyond to help manage our other dishes from other vendors because they believed in making our wedding perfect. They went and tried the other dishes and understand how they could complement the ones from Premiere.

I would definitely do business with them again as they are very experienced and put your needs first.

The food was wonderful. All of our guests commented that it was not typical "wedding food." They were very quick to respond and easily accessible. The value for the price was exceptional with many included extras such as linens, table settings, purple napkins, service, and more. They also took care of most of the behind the scenes set up and tear down. We had some minor miscommunications planning the menu early on but that was soon resolved and everything went off wonderfully. More...

I can't even begin to tell you how many of our guests approached us at the wedding and after about how amazing the food was and how incredible the service was. Premiere truly went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was even more amazing than we could have imagined. Matthew was such a pleasure to work with and so incredibly flexible! I can't say enough how glad we are that we chose Premiere for our caterer and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone! Thank you Premiere!! More...

As the mother of the bride, I can only say that everything was well done! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The table settings were perfection, including the candles lit all about the room. Michael and his team provided excellent service -- Michael even assisted older guests and/or guests with their arms holding little ones by carrying their plates back from the Buffet to their seat at the table. The personal attention to details was not missed!! Because of Premiere Catering's professionalism, the reception appeared to be effortless -- so easy, so enjoyable, so elegant!! More...

Everything was fresh, the meat expertly carved and cooked, elegantly presented. We highly recommend - A+

We had an incredible experience having Premiere Catering cater our wedding. They provided us all of the information we needed before the event and were happy to answer any questions we had that came up. We felt fully confident in their professionalism, product and efficiency even before the wedding. At the event they took care of everything beautifully and many of the guests told me it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The servers were friendly and always present, and the attention provided from John really helped make a perfect event. I'd use them again in a heart beat! More...

With all the decisions that have to be made, choosing the right caterer was top on our list along with the venue. We did meet with 2 other caterers but only did a tasting with Premier. That sealed the deal. We loved everything we tried and had such a fun evening! We knew we were in good hands with Premier. John helped with our menu, place setting, table setting and rentals. Premier knows how to cater events, especially at the Foundry! Why use anyone else?
The buffet was beautiful and I can't wait to see photos of the serpentine tables with all the extra side dishes that were included. The salmon, steak and ravioli entrees were delicious and we kept going back for more of the homemade chimichurri sauce!

Thanks to John and Premier for a beautiful reception!

My husband and I came back from our honeymoon so excited knowing we had leftovers from Premiere in our freezer from our wedding! One of the most common compliments we get from our wedding was, "The food was incredible!" Not only was the food delicious, as Mike and I knew it would be since we tasted it and knew right away we wanted them as our caterer, but the presentation was spectacular, and the servers were among the most attentive servers I've ever seen. The minute the ceremony was over, my husband and I were the first to the reception (it was just upstairs from our ceremony ballroom), and immediately a server was there with hor dourevs and beverages for us! We actually ate, PLENTY at our own wedding! Not a single glass was empty for less than a second before a server was there asking what beverage they'd like. From start to finish, Premiere catering was on top of emails, ready to answer questions, and helped make the planning process less stressful. Mike and I both knew the day of our wedding that we didn't have to worry at all about the caterers (or any other vendor we hired for our day for that matter). Some of our family members were so impressed, they said they wanted to write a review as well (they also want the recipe for the pasta salad that was served!) If you are vacillating at all between Premiere and another caterer(s), look no further than Premier. They are professional, kind, make delicious food, and have incredible service. You will not be disappointed and neither will your guests! More...

We live in the northern California and chose Premiere for our daughter's Portland wedding because they had the best reputation, and my experience indicated this is 100% true.
I told John that my ranching family was coming to the wedding from Nebraska and knew quality beef and my expectations were that there be pleanty of good food and drinks. John was up to the task and everyone agreed it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.
It is said you get what you pay for, but in this case we got a great value on a great service.

Premiere Catering went so above and beyond my expectations in every possible way. At our first meeting I was nervous and had no idea what I was doing but Matthew and Peter took me by the hand and helped me pick an amazing menu within my budget, create a look for the tables, layout the room, and even develop a timeline for the entire day. The servers and bartender were also great and it seemed like they were having a good time. It felt like I was working with family or friends who just happened to run a catering company. I really appreciated that the cost quoted included things like dishes, linens, and servers unlike other companies who add it on causing the per head cost to practically double.
The really important part was the food. Oh my goodness was the food delicious, and the buffet was beautiful! My only complaint was that people enjoyed the pork so much that I didn't get any extra to bring home which is a good problem to have. I wish I had another big event coming up just so I could get these guys to cook for me again.

Premier Catering was perfect, their execution flawless. In addition to providing excellent food and service, they also coordinated directly with our venue and worked with our event rental agency to create a seamless wedding experience.

Their flexibility was only matched by their personal touch. We worked directly with the same project manager John McLellan from the initial planning stages through to the actual event. All change requests were handled with a gracious and respectful attitude.

When we were choosing a caterer, one of the things that set them apart was the clarity and breakdown of their costs, no fees were added later, no up-selling, just a business that wants to provide the highest caliber of service to its clients.

My husband and I 100% recommend Premiere Catering to anyone looking for very professional and reliable catering services. From the tasting appointment to the day of the wedding, everything was so smooth! Moreover, like previous reviewers noted, our wedding guests said this was "the best wedding food ever!" One of our guests told me she is a very picky eater, usually only eating peanut & butter sandwiches because she dislikes most food, but she ate every last bite of food off her plate at our wedding. Thank you for helping make our wedding day so enjoyable for our wedding guests and us.

Premier is the most honest and fair catering company in the Pacific Northwest and I would use them again without a second thought. They handled butler-served appetizers, plated dinner, and full-bar service for our wedding at The Foundry in Lake Oswego this summer (August 2013). They were attentive to our desires and accommodating to every one of our special needs, the staff was friendlier than any catering service I've experienced, and the food and drinks were fantastic.

More important to me than all that is that every step of the way they were fair on price without me ever having to question anything. Where other companies "nickle and dime" you on every little cost, most everything we needed was included in the basic cost. There were never any hidden costs, overpriced add-ons, or revised estimates that made our jaws drop. I would bet that no catering company in the Pacific Northwest can come close to them on price (or simplicity of pricing).

It is obvious to us that they care about what they do and want happy customers. These are the kind of people we like to do business with.

I think I have heard from EVERY guest that the food was unbelievably delicious. Premiere Catering is so flexible and willing to make your day perfect in all possible ways. In all my suggestions and requests, their answer was yes.
I had a family style dinner with platters of food delivered to every table. Although the process was some what long, nobody complained and the food was all still warm! They served bride and groom first, then immediate families, so that we were able to eat a good meal and they were able to get up and pay our respects to guests as they were eating. Premiere are true professionals and I highly highly recommend them!!!

I can't say enough how great Premiere catering is to work with. From the first time my fiance and I met them we were impressed. You walk into their office and its set up like a wedding table. So you get to see how things can be set up and try their food. The price is VERY reasonable. Through the whole process of planning the wedding if I needed help or had a question they responded right away and were happy to do so. They are truly a delight to work with.

Premiere Catering is the Best in Portland hands down!!!! Michael who is one of the owners of Premiere always answered his phone and was on point every time we needed him. Michael always was positive and able to give us ideas and help us out through the whole wedding process. He even went above and beyond and helped up do some wedding planning at no extra cost.

Premiere was up front and clear on all pricing. There were no hidden fees or extra costs that came up. My wife and I did a lot of research and we found that a lot of catering companies seem cheap at first until you factor in all the extras you're going to need for the wedding then they end up being the most expensive. Not with Premiere right from the start you know how much its all going to cost.

The Food was amazing!!! Our guests were in love with the food! It was absolutely delicious!!!!!! I can't think of one bad thing to say about this company. Michael even went and contacted my rental company and I did all my rentals through Premiere as well which made our lives so much easier.

We were amazed with how organized, accommodating, and available Premiere Catering was. They met with us three times before our wedding, including once at our site an hour and a half away from town. The staff was always willing to modify our menu with no questions asked. The most incredible part about Premiere catering is how much they take over! We were able to drop off ALL decorations for centerpieces, seating table etc, and Premiere put EVERYTHING together perfectly. Our only complaint, relatively minor, is that alcohol, especially the keg was not kept quite cold enough as there was a hard time keeping enough ice because of 100 degree weather! More...

Planning our wedding in a month and a half we didn't have time to individually contact each of the twelve catering companies we were considering. So we sent out an email outlining our, needs, wants, and our budget. Ten minutes later Micheal from Premier Catering called. He then sent over a quote that met, our needs, wants, and our budget. He then introduced me to John who was the caterer for our event. John's calming demeanor and can do attitude was a pleasure to work with. He was on top of everything from the start and he even relaxed me about the entire event, which was hard to do for a pre-wedding bride. Then the wedding day came, WOW. We hired Premier Catering for their, responsiveness, professionalism, and their ability to accommodate our needs, but we had no idea we were in for the best meal of our lives. We weren't the only ones who felt this way. I still have people commenting on how wonderful the food was. Thank you Premier Catering. Brides look no further this is the caterer you should hire.

We researched many different caterers before the wedding. Many of them had a lower intro price and then had many different charges for full service catering. Premiere gave us a full price up front and stuck to it. This cut out many of the surprises and headaches. I had heard that Premiere was the best caterer in Portland and they lived up to it.

the entire experience was excellent - from picking out the menu, working the details of the contract, the setup - and the meal and service at the wedding was excellent. I have had nothing but complements on the quality of the reception dinner.

The only area I am not giving a 5/5 is in flexibility - the reason for this is that I felt that I had to argue for some minor things related to the venue rather than have the crew simply take care of things: coat rack, placement of the video screen for the slide show and tracking and placement of leftovers were a few of these items.

I have to say, I was absolutely blown away by Premiere Catering. I really didn't check around with other caterers because they came so highly recommended by the venue I booked. I changed the linen color and our beer choice a couple times, once was even the week of the event. Every change was met with "no problem at all".
I showed up hours before the start of the event to begin setting up our decor, so I got to see Premiere hard at work from the setup of the tableware, cooking the food, etc all the way through the cleanup process. From beginning to end, the staff was over-the-top in their professionalism, helpfulness, and friendly attitude. Anything I needed, they stopped what they were doing and went and got it, all the with a smile and they always asked if I needed anything else before they went back to the task they were doing.
The food was spectacular. It could not have been better. Our guests raved about the food - not only the taste, but the presentation. The amazing food paired with the incredible service we received was just incomparable. They really helped make this event as special as it was. I have heard from many guests that it was the best party they had ever attended.
We will absolutely use Premiere in the future and look forward to recommending them to anyone we know who is in need of a caterer.

AMAZING FOOD AND AMAZING SERVICE!!! My wedding was the best day I have ever lived and Premiere Catering made it that much better! The food was exactly what I wanted and my guests loved it!!! The service was superb! For example, I had a surprise guest (my aunt from Europe), she is a vegetarian, my father had already told them this so that they could make a special plate for her. Apparently the lead server(Matt) overheard that one of my other guests was a vegetarian(I had NO idea), sure enough they brought here a vegetarian plate!!! This made it for me!!! I am a Manager at a resturaunt and this was one of the best services I have ever seen! Peter (chef) was OUTSTANDING.. he asked my father if he needed anything, my father responded with that he needed some vodka.. Sure enough, Peter gave him a cranberry vodka! And we didn't even have liquor at the wedding... Peter was prepared!!! If you are getting married in Oregon.. HIRE THEM!! They are worth every penny! They are the most friendly people you will meet! They give the best service I have ever seen! HIRE THEM!!!! More...

Premiere catered the buffet dinner for our daughter's wedding at the Aerie at Eagle Landing on August 21st. Michael and his staff were amazing! From first contact by phone with Michael we felt like we were his only client. During the next few months of planning he understood & remembered that we were working within a budget, listened and understood our wishes and offered ideas and suggestions to help create a beautiful dinner atmosphere. The little details were not forgotten or missed on the big day. Our elderly family members were eagerly assisted with their buffet plates by the Premiere staff and special request drinks were brought directly to our table. The food was out of this world! Great selection of items made the final menu choices hard to narrow down. The food presentation was creative and very impressive. Our guests went back for seconds and thirds. Premiere enjoys what they are doing and it certainly showed that day. Thanks for making our daughter's wedding such a wonderful memory.

The food that Premiere Catering served at our wedding was delicious. We served family style and they did a really great job making sure there was plenty of food on all the tables. Michael was good to work with and fairly responsive, although it would sometimes take him a couple of days to respond to emails. What impressed me most about this caterer, though, was their responsiveness to our concerns after they made a fairly large mistake with the food we ordered. To err is human, of course, and no caterer will be perfect 100% of the time, although I have no doubt that this type of mistake is a rarity for these gentlemen. That’s why I really appreciated it when Premiere Catering acknowledged the error and made sure to make it right with us. I’d recommend them based solely upon the depth of character that I feel this gesture indicates. More...

Premiere Catering did a fantastic job catering our wedding. The day of the wedding they really made things run smoothly. They were also very happy to work with us on menu options to get something we really wanted while keeping the cost down. The tasting session was really great, it felt like we had a good opportunity to really taste the food we would be served at our wedding, and it felt like a very personal experience, a very hands on small business. And they didn't try to upsell us on options that we didn't need. A few times they were slow to respond to emails, but did answer their phone when we called them. We also had a miscommunication about the prices for our beer, but it worked out in the end. The food was delicious, the staff was great, and they helped make the day of the wedding run very smoothly. My mom even commented on how very helpful and courteous the staff were in helping clean up after the wedding. More...

Michael and his staff were amazing. Michael personally followed up with us (bride and groom) to make sure we had everything we needed. Not only did he do our catering but he was able to get the aisle runner for us as well. It was nice to have someone offer to help out with those little details. I highly recommend them.

The name says it all ... PREMIERE! With our Vietnamese/American wedding, we wanted to have foods representing both backgrounds. John and Peter were very responsive with our request. Steak, salmon, crab wontons, Chinese broccoli, etc. Our guests said that was the best wedding food they've had! Pleasing that mixed crowd of "foodies" is no small feat! Food is a BIG part of a wedding celebration so I highly recommend Premiere Catering! More...

Premiere Catering was worth every penny! My husband and I wanted to serve a champagne brunch following our morning wedding, and Premiere Catering made that dream a reality. The gourmet french toast and open faced breakfast sandwhiches were amazing and what's not to like about pigs-in-a blanket (sausages wrapped in mini pancakes)! In the weeks following the wedding numerous guests commented on how wonderful the food was - certainly not something I have heard about other wedding caterers. In addition, the staff was wonderfully accomodating and provided a number of excellent staging suggestions. I would definitely recommend Premiere Catering to a friend. More...

Michael and Peter made our wedding reception magical! They are completely focused on making their clients happy and were really fun to work with. The food was incredible, and they are way more than just a caterer. They helped with the design for the banquet room, going with me to select fabrics and dishes, and set up the ceremony and reception areas beatifully; including putting out the favors and centerpieces. They came in under our budget, and absolutely did not nickel and dime us for anything.
From start to finish, Micheael was warm and professional, and you can tell Peter LOVES the food he prepares. Our guests absolutely raved about the steak, and the cedar-plank salmon was incredible. They were very flexible and creative with our menu, and designed a custom french-fry bar for the cocktail hour. Michael was responsive and very helpful through the entire process, and the day of the wedding he and Peter worked together seamlessly to pull off a wonderful event.

When you hire Premier, you hire a full-package catering and events service. I had high expectations, and they exceeded all of them. I unconditionally recommend them for anyone planning a wedding or event in Portland and surrounding areas.

Premiere Catering was awesome! The food was excellent. We received so many wonderful comments from our guests about how great the food was (many said it was the best they've ever had at a wedding). Mike and the team were also very easy to work with and very flexible. It was also great that they provided everything (linen, plates, silverware, glassware, etc) and did a wonderful job setting up the venue beautifully. We could not have been any happier with our caterer! More...

If you are looking for a caterer, definitely try to hire Premiere. They were amazing in every way. When we went for our tasting, it was obvious that Peter cares deeply about the quality of his food and it's presentation. Our guests were blown away by the delicious food, especially the tender sirloin steaks and the mashed potato bar served in martini glasses. Very impressive. The service was also great, as they were very attentive to everyone's needs. The wine list was wonderful, which the guests also were raving about. Many choices are available in food and linens, by far the best company we interviewed. Easy to work with and they gave us a big discount for a weekday wedding. You won't have to worry about the food, drink or set-up if you go with Premiere! More...

The food was amazing! We have had so many compliments! For brides...make sure you sit down and actually eat. I was too busy mingling and didn't enjoy my food as much as I wanted.

Michael and his team did a superb job of catering my wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes on July 16, 2010. Literally everyone who came to our wedding loved the food. Some favorites were the martini mashed potatoe bar (including sweet potatoes) and the cedar plank salmon and roasted pork loin. I loved the all the roasted veggies and fruit skeweres. The only thing I didn't like was the stale bread. Overall the food was fabulous. They took care of everything from set up, to cake cutting, to clean up. I was very impressed! More...

I have been to weddings catered by Premiere over the past few years. When I leared that Premiere was the preferred vendor for my own wedding location I was excited. Peter & Michael were fun & easy to work with, along with being very accommodating to our needs all along the way. We still have guests commenting about how delicious the food was 3 months later!

This caterer provided insanely awesome service and food at my wedding. I was told by many guests that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The presentation was beautiful and the tables and table linens were amazing.
The only complaint I have with this caterer was the communication or lack thereof before the wedding. I was planning the wedding from out of town and needed a bit of extra communication because of that but never did I doubt that things would go well at the wedding and of course they did. I couldn't have asked for anything more and was extremely pleased and satisfied with how things turned out.

This has to be the BEST catering company in ALL of portland. Really...they were awesome. We didn't actually have a choice in the matter because our venue required this caterer. Now I know why, they are the BEST! They made sure everything went smoothly, they made sure me and my husband had a drink and food whenever we wanted it. The tasting room was amazing and they created a few signature dishes based upon me and my husband's wishes. It was fantastic and all of our guests raved about the food. Not to mention, their pricing is incredibily reasonable. This is a fantastic company! More...

These folks really worked to stay within our budget. The food was amazing. The only frustration was that some of the small things they said would be on the menu didn't appear at the reception.
