How far in advance does our banquet hall book?
Typically, our Saturday dates start booking a 15 months ahead of time, so you should book your date as soon as possible. January, February, March and November are our slow times. You have a good chance of booking a last minute date for these months.

For a catered event, what is the difference between drop off and full service?
When you order drop off service, we will deliver your food just in time for serving. The food is in disposable containers and is coming right out of a heated and refrigerated truck. Drop off service does not include warmers. Warmers can be rented if you would like. There is a $75 set up charge which includes warmer rental and buffet set up. The client is responsible for returning all non-disposable items to Maravela's the next day. If you choose full service, the cost is 20% of the total food order. Full service includes friendly, uniformed servers (one per 50 guests), chafing dishes, set up and clean up of buffet area and bussing of tables. Usually, the servers work a four hour shift. Additional charges may apply for longer shifts. If you so choose, the servers will transfer the leftovers to disposable containers.
