    My original communication on here was good. The person was responsive and clear. I asked for a dish that would look appetizing for presentation. I was recommended the chicken pesto. Here is a picture of it, does not look very appealing. Food that was good, The Tri Tip, pasta rigatoni, garden salad, and cheese bread. They forgot to supply one of the stands so 2 of the dishes were cold. The delivery fee of $50 for being less than 5 miles away would have been 25% of the cost of what I had ordered. Saved $42 by picking it up ourself. The value was the best I found for decent food. Overall, a good experience, simply sharing things to look out for when ordering.

    The person to handle the reservation was terrific. She was very accommodating to changes that need to be made. The two servers were very professional and the food was excellent. Our friends all commented on how wonderful her job was done by this company.

    Booking was super easy and professional. The delivery was prompt and the food tasted great. The presentation was slightly disappointing as some cookies were displayed in pieces and the flowers were wilted. Overall, I'd definitely recommend them again.

    Food was tasty. Ordered the Taco bar. Wish there would have been a warmer for the tortillas. Tortillas were cold by the time we started eating.

    Generally, the food didn't taste very good. For example, the sweet potatoes: Some were cooked, some were not. They were supposed to have herbs in it. They had none. They had no spices. The asparagus was overcooked and wilted. Also, their bottoms had not been trimmed.

    i really enjoyed working with Pour la France. The food provided was delicious and the portions were large, and they actually delivered a bit early so that everything was totally ready when the group arrived for their lunch meeting.

    The food was great! They were really easy to work with and very responsive. The team came to set up the spread before the event and then came back the next week to grab their stuff with no issues. Thank you for making that a great experience for us!

    I hired Pour la France for catering services for my daughter's sweet 16th Birthday event and I'm proud to say things went very well. A few things to call out about Pour la France are: 1) Customer Service: I worked with BoJames (Bo) on menu options for this event and Bo was extremely helpful and delivered excellent customer service throughout the process. I was provided with a couple of menu's to choose from and what I liked most was that the menu's provided allowed for me to be flexible with my options. 2) Food delivery: The food ordered was delivered on time (despite the snow) and at the end of the night, the Pour la France crew arrived on-time to pick up the items they delivered. This was a big deal for me as I needed the venue cleaned by the end of the night and having the team be there on time to help with clean up was a big help. 3) Food Quality: Each of the items I ordered tasted great and came with great quality! 4) Food Quantity/Portion Sizes: This category is the only reason I'm giving Pour la France a 4 instead of 5 star rating. Although I worked with Bo on my menu options, I did expect the portion sizes to be a little more robust than what they were. However, I only ordered from the Appetizer and HD menu's so part of the blame is on me for not fully asking the question of whether or not the food I ordered would be enough for a room size of 50 - 60 people. All-in-all I would recommend Pour la France's services and I will likely use them again for future events.

    Great Food!
    The food was amazing and commented on by everyone at the event. They arrived on time and it was a quick set up and tear down before and after event. Once again cannot describe how good the food was.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Each event is so unique with many different variables it's impossible to provide a standard price. On average our full service wedding and events range from $25 - $95/person. Corporate breakfasts and lunches range lower between $9 - $15/person.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step is to gather the details of the event and the services you need, then put together a comprehensive quote that provides a full breakdown of food, beverage, staffing, rentals, service fees, and taxes. Second will review the proposal with the client and make changes until we get it just right. Third the client pays the deposit, holding the date and locking in the pricing. Changes can still be need to made to the proposal after this. Fourth the final guest count will be adjusted on the proposal and the balance will be paid three days prior to the event. Finally we provide the services on the day of the event.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our chefs have been trained in classical culinary skills, attend regular food safety training and are servsafe certified. Our bartenders are thoroughly trained and have been TIPS certified. Our waitstaff is composed of employees who have been trained and work for us on a regular basis, they are NOT Temp staff.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Bo the Chef and Owner has worked in restaurants since he was 14 years old. Working his way up eventually attending culinary school, then purchasing Pour la France Catering in 2015.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We work with corporate clients, brides, grooms, families, and party planners.
