    • How far in advance should I book my event?

      All events are booked on a first come first serve basis and it depends on our availability and the popularity of a particular day. We recommend scheduling catering services as soon as possible to ensure that the date is available.

    • How do I reserve a date and time for my event?

      To secure your date and time, we require a signed contract, and 50% deposit.

    • How far will you travel to cater a party?

      We service the Washington Metropolitan area. Depending on distance a travel fee will apply.

    • What time will you be arriving for my event?

      We typically arrive between an hour and a half to two hours before the event start time. In extremely rare cases, due to an unforeseen incident such as a car accident or other emergency, our driver could potentially be late for an event. In such cases, we will do everything in our ability to have the event set up and the food ready as soon as possible.

    • What is your rescheduling policy in case of bad whether or emergencies?

      We set up tents over the food prep areas and will not cancel for rain or even snowy conditions. If we are unable to cook outside for an event because of extreme inclement weather, we could always cook the food at our restaurant and serve it buffet style.

      We understand that emergencies may arise, and we do everything we can to minimize any difficulties or losses that may result. If within one week of a scheduled event a client needs to change the date, a rescheduling fee will apply depending on the amount of preparation completed and the amount of food or ingredients ordered or prepared.

    • What is your cancellation policy?

      In the extremely rare and unlikely situation where an event needs to be cancelled indefinitely, the cancellation policy is as follows:

      We will charge a 15% fee for cancellations regardless of cause.
      Within 72 hours of the event we will retain the full amount of the deposit.
      Notice of cancellation must be received in writing.

      This cancellation policy is at the discretion of El Patio and may be adjusted depending on the situation.

    • Do you ever have to back out of catering an event?

      We will NOT back out of events for larger ones that may arise, and we will not overbook events. Once we receive your signed contract and deposit, you do not have to worry about loosing your spot.
