“Its All about the Food!”

There are many companies in Portland and most provide pretty mediocre food. Voila Catering is very different.  We create custom menus for each and every event featuring fresh, seasonal, ripe ingredients.  We create menus more like restaurant food than your typical catering selection.  On this page below we have listed some priced SAMPLE menus we have done for clients in the past. Please make sure you understand the  pricing details at the bottom of the page. Remember, these menus are just past menu examples, your special event menu will be created based upon our unique event’s need and your budget. 

We use fresh seasonal ingredients in our menus because the food tastes best and costs least when it is ripe and plentiful.   If your event is in the Spring after the flowers are blooming and before the heat of the summer then, click here to download our Voila’s Spring Menu PDF.  If your event is after the first 90 degree summer day and before the cool days of Fall, click here to download our Voila’s Summer Menu PDF.  If your event is after the leaves are falling and before the fruit trees start to flower again, click here to download our Voila’s Fall and Winter Menu‘  Please note that availability of seasonal sensitive ingredients will vary with seasonal weather and may not be certain until several weeks before your event….of course, we are flexible and don’t need to finalize the menu until availability is known.

Contact our event planner at or at 503-806-6658 to schedule a complimentary consultation to let us develop your event’s unique menu!
