Plated Dinner vs. Buffet Style
Which type of dinner service is best for your event? When discussing catering options for receptions at Venus de Milo, the number of guests, the time that you have, and the food that you want to serve will play a role in your decision-making. There are definite pros and cons for each type of food service, so it’s best to consider all of the factors before making a selection.
- Most Cost-Effective Solution – BUFFET – Requires less staff, lower costs overall, guests gain access to a variety of food selections and options instead of having to choose between two entree items.
- Best Way to Serve Everyone At Once – PLATED DINNER – Staff delivers food to everyone at the same time, making it easy to keep all guests engaged and make sure that no one feels left out; great for expediting the dinner portion of the event.
- Most Formal Type of Dinner – PLATED DINNER – If you want to “wow” your guests, go with the plated dinner; excellent for corporate events in Swansea, as well as wedding receptions and formal dinners.
- Most Casual Type of Dinner – BUFFET – For casual, laid back family-style dinners, including birthdays and other special occasions for close friends and family members, consider the buffet.
- Best Way to Please Everyone – BUFFET – Select a wide range of options for those who are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, etc. Make sure to also include a lot of side dishes, carving stations, and options for beverages.
