Tableside French Service

French service, or service à la française, is a style of service in which food is prepared and/or served by waiters table-side. French service is not synonymous with pretentiousness, nor does the cuisine have to be French. Today French service is commonly used to present Appetizers, Salads, Flambé Steak and Special Deserts.

Because of the amount of time it requires, French service is generally appropriate for smaller weddings or those with a budget large enough to afford the additional servers. If you have a small number of guests and can afford it, French service provides guests with an unparalleled level of service. It is known as the most skilled style of service.

French service differs from others in that all food is served from the gueridon. This is a rolling cart the same height as the guest's table. The gueridon is covered with a cloth and is placed side-by-side with the table.
