English translation: Catering for groups

German to English translations [Non-PRO]
German term or phrase: Gruppenservice
We are in the context of gastronomy.
The following sentence appears in a letter of recommendation issued by a hotel restaurant, which is to be translated for a US-american audience:

"Auch im Restaurant x erledigte er alle ihm aufgetragenen Tätigkeiten im Gruppenservice und auch im à la carte Bereich zur vollsten Zufriedenheit."

I would appreciate any suggestions for Gruppenbereich in this sentence, since my own solutions seem to be a little akward and are probably not the parlance of gastronomy.

Thank you very much.

English translation:Catering for groups
Explanation:
In the restaurant he also fulfilled all tasks assigned to him, catering for groups as well as a la carte service, to our complete satisfaction.

This is how I would word it if I had to write a reference for someone. I hope it helps.

Explanation:
Obviously what is ment is that he did well working/serving/cooking for groups of customers, pre-booked and with a set menu. Can't think of a better term to say that in English.
