Voilà Catering is a full-service gourmet catering company that provides food, service, rentals and beverages at many public and private locations within the greater Portland Area, Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Selecting an event site is the most important decision in planning your special event or wedding reception. Often times, selecting a event location will determine your food catering options, rental needs, beverage options and to a large degree your overall event cost. Many wedding sites restrict your catering options and even your wedding cake selection. If food and budget are important to you, we recommend making the site selection in conjunction with selecting a caterer. Our services are not available at some venues as they have exclusive relationships with caterers that pay “marketing fees” to be to be on the preferred catering list. Instead of increasing our charges 20% to all our customers or providing inferior food at these venues, we have chosen to not pay venue kickbacks. Our assurance to you is that you will not be over-charged for the food nor will we cut corners on food quality.
Our favorite indoor event locations include the The Lodge at Mountain Park in Lake Oswego for up to 300, Elk Cove Winery, The Laurelhurst Club,for small events, Gallery 903 in the Pearl District, The North Star Ballroom in NE Portland, and the Holy Names Heritage Center in Lake Oswego Most of these sites also have outside areas available for use as well as their indoor facilities. Pictures and additional information can be found in the provided links.
Some of our favorite outdoor event venues includes David Hill Winery near Forest Grove, beautiful Bridal Veil Lakes in the Columbia Gorge, Portland Park’s Hoyt Arboretum, Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens, The Overlook House, Leach Botanical Gardens, Long Barn Farm, and Mt. Tabor Park. While an outdoor venue may seem risky in our rainy climate, the planners of Voilà Catering can manage the rental of tents, heaters, umbrellas, dancefloors, and all other rentals as needed for your event at your selected venue.
Other sites available for Voilà Catering’s services include: Simon Benson House at PSU, CoHo Theatre, Pittock Mansion, Multnomah Arts Center, Columbia Arts Center in Vancouver, Oaks Park, Washington County Fair Complex, Rex Hill Vineyards, Oak Knoll Winery, Wine Country Farm, Laurelhurst Park, Peninsula Park Rose Garden, Washington Park Ampitheatre, and Council Crest Park.
For a more personal event or to possibly save the cost of renting a site, private homes and backyard gardens can be transformed into event sites with tents, dancefloors, lighting and even performance staging by Voilà Catering’s event planners. As with all our events, the event planners at Voila Catering will plan and manage all your rentals at no additional markup!
We have many images and stories about events at a wide variety of different locations on our Blog Page!
While we do not manage or book any of these sites, we have years of experience working at the sites and can help you select the best site for your particular event.
