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!

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!

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!

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!!!

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!

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! Read less
