SELECT Your ServiceS
Family Style = This is our main service method and we serve each course individually. We’ll elegantly serve your selections one course at a time, and your group will serve themselves.
Buffet Style = Available by request. We will do buffets, but we prefer to serve the food when it’s composed minutes before you eat.
Table Service = Available by special request only. This includes the chef(s) individually plating each course, serving each course and clearing each course. This is most suitable for gatherings where you don’t want to have to lift a finger. Note – Table Service does not include beverage service since our chefs will be solely focused on cooking, plating and serving you.
Serving & dining ware – We do not carry serving or dining ware. If additional items are needed, we recommend bright rentals. Once your menu is chosen, we’ll tell you exactly what you’ll need right down to each utensil. Some clients have everything needed, some need additional items. If you’re renting on airbnb or Vrbo, you can send the airbnb or Vrbo Host what’s needed and determine if rental items are necessary.
Table Setting = $8 per person. Some clients enjoy setting the dining table, and other times they’d like us to. Whether it’s your home, or you are renting a venue or a house, we’re able to accommodate you so you can spend time with your company.
Service Staff – Through our Table Service option, we often do not need food servers. This is designed to be more efficient, reduce costs and some clients like talking to the chefs. This said, some events require food servers, and depending on the location of your event, we may be able to help you secure excellent servers.
Menu Format & Added Courses – The Mise En Place Menu Format includes First Courses, Main Courses, Side Dishes, and Desserts. Starters are separate from the core Menu Format. Added Courses are for clients who may want to have more options due to preferences or aversions (not allergies).
$15 PP for one Added Starter
$25 PP for one Added First Course
$40 PP for one Added Main Course
$20 PP for one Added Side Dish
$25 PP for one Added Dessert
Custom Menus – $75 for 3 courses + $25 for each additional course. This means we’re creating a menu or menu items for you from scratch which are not on the menu above.
Beverage Service – This includes pouring wine, water and some cocktail preparation by request. We have access to world class wines through our partners who source directly from the finest producers, at a wide variety of price points. Our menu changes seasonally, and their sommeliers make selections based on our menus. We also provide dedicated wine service by request. Please inquire when we connect.
Fees – Luxury Ingredients may incur fees. Accommodating for allergies incurs no fee.
Allergies – All chefs are legally certified and licensed to serve food in the state of California as shown on on The Department of Public Health Website.
San Francisco Bay Area – events beyond 35 miles of 94103 may include a travel fee of $50.

If the client cancels within 5 days before (120 hours) or before for reasons outside of their control (illness, natural disaster) Mise En Place keeps the full deposit unless you reschedule or plan to reschedule. If you reschedule or plan to reschedule, 100% of that deposit goes to your future event on the date of your choosing.
5 days before your event we require the final head count. At this point, Mise En Place chefs are booked for your event and have begun ordering products. Once your head count is confirmed, Mise En Place will debit your card an additional 20% to cover expenses incurred.
If the client cancels the event entirely and is less than 5 days (120 hours) before the event, Mise En Place keeps the deposit and the 20%. If the client reschedules or plans to reschedule, then the original deposit amount will be put toward your future event on the date of your choosing.
If Mise En Place cancels for any reason, Mise En Place will offer you a full refund or you can elect to have that deposit put towards a future date of your choosing.
