Etiquette for table service includes the knowledge of serving food. The order of food service is linked to the style of service.

  1. The server will offer the client the need for refreshments many times throughout the meal experience; it is important the client never be denied/or delayed access to beverages and drinks.
  2. The server clears plates from the right of the guest with the right hand. It is customary to serve women before the men at a table. The server clears dishes from the right of the guest with the right hand between courses.
  3. Please make sure that you are not stacking dishes in front of the guest and please wait until all guests are finished eating to remove dishes.
  4. Plating head tables is a responsibility that we take on at our events. When a bride and groom has established a head table with their bridal party present, we dismiss the bridal party first to the buffet line as we bring the plated meal for the bride and groom. If we are doing an all plated catered event, we plate the head table first before bringing out plates to the other tables.
