San Ramon Valley Conference Center
We understand the important role that food plays in attendee engagement. Our dining options are designed to ease the challenges of menu planning. The culinary creations prepared by our Sodexo Team are served daily in our dining outlets, or directly to your event space.
The menu offerings are inspired by fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, and accommodate today’s palate and dietary preferences. Indulge in our hearty and health conscious entrées, daily soups and salad bar, deli selections, authentic offerings in our Taqueria, and freshly baked desserts.
In addition to our group dining options, you may choose to have your meal catered to your meeting room. If a catered service better supports the success of your event, you may select from any of our catering menu options, or ask your Conference Planner to customize a menu that reflects the specific tastes and requirements of your guests.
If you are planning a dinner event, please work with your Conference Planner in order to learn about the additional menus and service types we can offer. Often, our Executive Chef will become directly involved in that planning process, guaranteeing a personalized experience for you and your guests.
All events taking place after 5 pm, and/or on weekends are subject to an 18% service charge, in addition to applicable taxes.
We sincerely hope that you enjoy your dining experience with us, and please know that we wish you and your guests happiness, good health and well being.
Our kitchen prepares daily specialties using locally sourced ingredients and fresh seasonal produce. Guests have the option of selecting one of our housemade soups, or a salad to accompany their entrée, along with a beverage and dessert. Guests choosing to eat on the lighter side may choose to skip the entrée and opt for a larger salad, and a bowl of soup.
Convenient grab and go items, such as sandwiches and entrée salads are also available, as well as items from our grill, such as made to order burgers and grilled chicken breast.
If you decide to enjoy the offerings in our authentic Taqueria, you can choose from soft tacos, burrito bowls or traditional style burritos. Our tasty housemade salsas, and fresh guacamole are impossible to resist.
If you would rather have your meal catered to your room, we have a variety of menu options
to choose from, or your Conference Planner can create a customized menu and service plan that better supports the success of your event. Catering services can be set up in your meeting room, or just outside the door, whichever is your preference.

Meet Our Executive Chef
Chef Isedro Cawaling
Born and raised along the incredible Northern California coast Isedro Cawaling was fascinated with the kitchen at a young age. Still, he was undecided on a career until he enrolled in the culinary program at Cabrillo Community College and his dream of being a chef took flight. After earning a degree in Food Service Technology he continued on his culinary expedition which led him to The New England Culinary Institute in Vermont where he specialized in Classic French Cuisine and pastry making.
Over the nine years Isedro spent with the Ritz Carlton Hotel, San Francisco, he supported the hotel restaurant in earning a Five Star Rating from the San Francisco Chronicle and was voted Five Star Employee of the Quarter. Since then, he has found his niche as Sodexo’s Executive Chef at the San Ramon Valley Conference Center.
More than two decades in the industry have inspired him to create a unique style fusing French elegance with innovative California Cuisine. Isedro prides himself on creating fresh dishes using only the best local ingredients available.
When the self-proclaimed workaholic finds time to step out of the kitchen, he loves watching the Drum Corps International marching bands perform, spending time with his dog Sam and working on garden and do-it-yourself projects around his East Bay Area home.
