Metro Cuisine: A signed contract and 10% deposit based on proposal to reserve the staffing for your date.

What forms of payment do you accept? Vue accepts check (made payable to Vue) or credit card (a 2.9% convenience charge will be applied to transaction). Metro Cuisine accepts cash, check or credit card- no additional transaction fees.

Can Metro Cuisine work with dietary restrictions? Yes.

What is your cancellation policy? If the client cancels the scheduled event, the liquidated damages due to Vue are 100% of the latest invoice for all services.  However, if the Client cancels the date and Vue is able to resell that date at full retail value, the Client will be refunded 90% of the rental fee. If a cancellation occurs and Vue is at fault, 100% of the rental fee will be refunded to the client.

Metro Cuisine’s policy: 10% deposit is non-refundable. Any event cancelled within 14 days will forfeit 60% of event deposits.

Will I be charged sales tax? There is no sales tax on food, but tax on certain types of equipment, staff and some beverages.

Will I be assigned a coordinator?

Metro Cuisine employs a talented team of catering coordinators to assist you with the planning process. Upon booking you will receive detailed correspondence and guidance from a coordinator whose goal is to make this process as seamless as possible. Your catering package includes five hours of coordination the day of your wedding, in addition to as many necessary in-person or phone consultations leading up to the big day. They will work with your other vendors to coordinate a detailed timeline of events and make sure all items relating to venue set-up, food service, and beverage and bar service are performed as requested. Your catering coordinator is supported by our dedicated Vue Event Captain who will lead our team of servers, chefs, and bartenders to produce a successful reception and act as your point of contact for the post-dinner portion of the event.

Some clients opt to contract an overall wedding coordinator to assist with design plans, ceremony details, and non-reception events to much success. We have a curated list of preferred planners we can provide if you are interested in featuring a planner as part of your wedding plans.
