Eric is very easy to work with. He is able to accommodate different budgets and he is always available via email or phone. The food was delicious, we ate leftovers the next day. His menu has plenty of options. He was not present on the wedding date but his staff was very helpful.

Eric did an amazing job catering our wedding. He was a preferred caterer at our venue (Holy Names Heritage Center). Our tasting before the wedding was great and he was able to negotiate menu and price with us. We ended up with exactly what we wanted and our guests had positive things to say about the food (especially his roasted red potatoes). He listened to what we wanted and made changes to the menu accordingly. Eric was flexible on menu and linen orders up to a few days before the wedding. His crew working the day of did a phenomenal job. Eric was present to get the day started and then left the party in the capable hands of his staff. They were friendly, stayed on task and were quick to clean up. They looked and acted professional. Overall, our experience was fantastic.

WOW.



What can we say. Chef du Jour catered our wedding a month ago and end to end this was a superior experience. 



This is more than just a catering company, this is a full service planning and event service. Our planner Eric Youel handled every single detail from the food to the furniture to the glassware. He managed the entire set-up of our venue from the tables to the placement of favors and all decorative elements. Not a single detail was missed, not a single mistake was made. The entire lead-up to the event and the event itself ran without a hitch. Perfection. 



Most importantly the standard of the food was superb. Chef du Jour can create any kind of menu you heart desires. We were able to incorporate personal favorites and I was able to make sure that the menu incorporated a great selection of food. 



The staffing that Chef du Jour brings in for the event is top tier. Everything moved effortlessly, every need was catered for, every guest had everything they could have wanted. It was beyond professional and just perfect all round. 



We really can't use enough superlatives to describe the experience we've had with Chef du Jour.

Also, worth noting to prospective couples - the pricing is extremely clear. There are NO hidden costs here. What you are quoted is what you pay - all tips are included, all fees are included, it's completely transparent. I found that extremely refreshing. 



We'll definitely be back for future parties and events.

Eric and his Chef du Jour staff prepared a wonderful dinner buffet at my daughter's wedding July 13, 2013 at Vista Hills Vineyard and Winery. From the pre-planning, setup and follow through to the actual catering event, everything went off without a hitch. The food was excellent, the service was superior, and many of our guests commented positively on both. I wholeheartedly recommend Chef du Jour for weddings or other events requiring the finest in catering.

Eric at Chef Du Jour Catering makes truly AMAZING food!!! I can not thank you enough for all that you did for us to make our wedding special. Not only was the food to die for, but Eric also helped me set up my candy buffet. He had all of these beautiful jars and bowls for candy and made my buffet so beautiful. I do not live in the area but if I ever need an event catered in Portland again, you will be who I call. Thank you so much!!!

Overall I was extremely pleased with my experience with Chef du Jour Catering. They were extremely helpful and flexible and allowed me to create a menu that fit our budget! They were slow to respond to emails, but you have to forgive that... they aren't exactly sitting at the desk all day. Some of the guests said the food was cold, but everyone said it tasted amazing!

Eric at Chef du Jour was great. We got numerous compliments on the food from our guests. We did family-style dinner, which was something rather new for them. And the food was delicious! We had the beef tips, which were amazingly tender, the garlic mashed potatoes, which everyone raved about; green beans, salmon and a spinach salad. They were great about changing sauces or adding things to meet our needs. The servers were all very professional and everything went very smoothly. the only problem was they forgot our two vegetarian meals, but we had enough sides that it was okay. I would recommend them highly.

I have very mixed feeling about my experience here. The food was fantastic! But they ran out of food which is pretty unforgivable. Eric handled everything very professionally but for the amount we were paying per plate their should have been NO food shortage! Also some service issues when Eric was not there.
