They catered my daughters Cinderella themed sweet 16 birthday. The food was delicious and served and presented as though you were eating in a high end restaurant. The servers were an added touch, they were professional in appearance and gave impeccable service. My guests raved about how wonderful the food was. I am vegetarian and gluten free and they prepared a special meal for me which I greatly appreciated. The cake was so beautiful... Exactly like the picture we had provided Carolina. I can't say enough good things about this company, but I do know I will use them again! They came in with their team and prepared and served out of my kitchen and left it spotless. Wow is all I can say... Thank you Carolina, Boris and Gustavo for all you did to make this night memorable. ~Shara~

Delicious food enjoyed by all. Food for several vegans and a gluten-free crowd. Everything was as promised and, actually, even better. The baked oatmeal with coconut and blueberries and the quiche with the sweet potato crust were special favorites... no wait, I think people loved the potatoes best or maybe the summer salad with yogurt and apples. Gosh! It was all so good!!! And Delores and her staff were absolutely professional.

Steven and his team were amazing for our photoshoot! They were prompt and on time and all the food was great. Our staff and clients on site were very pleased with his food selections and options. He also last minute catered to our gluten free clients which was amazing! I would recommend SEGAR LA to anyone looking for catering for a photoshoot or simply just a party in general. Thanks Steven!

Supreme lives up to his name he is certainly "Supreme" He has Supreme food, Supreme service, Supreme Personality, and Supreme Passion for what he does. He cares about his client. He delivers on time, his food is light and delicious. You feel the intention in every bite. I highly recommend not only booking Supreme for your personal meal prep but a small or large dinner party, company lunch, family outing, or if you are looking to drop some lbs. Supreme will help come up with a healthy meal plan catered to your dietary needs. Obviously his food is VEGAN but he can couple that with gluten free too! You will not be disappointed. In fact he is not only an amazing chef, but a wonderful beautiful human being. You will be inspired!.Enjoy!

We were completely blown away by this catering company who cooked for my daughter's wedding this weekend. From start to finish they were so interested, so professional and caring. Then when Lionelle came to cook he was fun and energetic and the food was outstanding. At one point I ran out of salad, something that I was providing myself, and Lionelle jumped in to make more from items in our kitchen without any instruction at all which I felt was above and beyond. People kept telling me how delicious the food was! And their pricing is very competitive. Honestly a perfect experience. We would never ever hire another catering company in LA and feel free to reach out and speak to me personnally.

My husband and I hired Chef Villareal for our wedding this year and we could have not been happier. She was extremely professional but really warm and personable at the same time. The ingredients she used were seasonal and she was able to cater to the vast array of guest preferences we had...... even catering to one friend that was dairy and gluten free! The food ended up being a huge hit and was the topic of conversation days after our wedding. Living in a city with so much culinary talent, we had the choice of many sucessful chefs which made the final decision hard to finalize. I am so extremely happy that we went with Lady Day Catering. Could have not been more happy with her service and cooking talent. Highly recommend!

I hired Veronique on two separate occasions; the first was for my 60th birthday, and I wanted a private chef to thrill us with amuses bouche, a multicourse dinner (including salmon for the fish course and filet mignon medium rare for the entrée) with palate cleanser and wine/champagne paired with each course. My friends are still talking about the event! Her team was professional, she obviously enjoyed the assignment, the food was delicious, and I couldn't help over-tip each member of her team including her, for the fabulous job they did. The second time was a more somber affair, as it was the luncheon following the unveiling of my husband's headstone. I wanted traditional Jewish food, brisket, chopped liver, etc. As always, her portions were generous and the food was delicious, consequently my guests returned for two and three plates full of food.

I can highly recommend SMP Catering! They catered my wedding reception last summer for 175 guests. Their food is AMAZING!!!! I loved working with Valerie and Chef Steven. They created a menu designed just for me and my hubby. I love Italian food and my husband loves Latin and American food. They created such an awesome menu to highlight some of our favorite dishes. Valerie even helped me come up with with signature drink ideas and a candy station. To this day my friends and family still rave about the food we had. Valerie and Steven were so friendly and easy to work with and their staff were all very professional. They helped coordinate all of our rentals which made my wedding planning easier! Since my wedding I've hired SMP Catering for some other parties I've hosted both at home and even at work and am always happy with their food and service!

Phinom prepared a delicious dinner for 25 women who were enjoying a fun and relaxing getaway bachelorette weekend. Chef Maya drove to our location in Malibu, arrived on time and everything was seamless. She was very flexible and catered to our every need (literally and figuratively). We had vegetarian and gluten free girls and Maya had no problem adapting the menu so that everyone could enjoy her wonderful food. She made the most flavorful Moroccan inspired dinner that made our girls' weekend even more memorable. She packaged all the left overs for us and left the kitchen in pristine condition. She was professional/ always available via email and phone and responded promptly to all my messages. In addition to her food being ridiculously good and authentic, Maya was such a pleasure to meet- Friendly, polite, gracious, interesting! I really enjoyed getting to know her and chatting with her. I would definitely work with Phinom again and recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much Phinom Catering and chef Maya for helping make our weekend amazing!

My wife Caitlyn and I wanted vegan cupcakes and a smoothie bar for our wedding. We initially got in touch with Christina for the cupcakes....but she also delivered on a smoothie bar that was talked about all night! The cupcakes were one of the biggest hits of the whole wedding. They far exceeded even our expectations. We told no one that they were vegan and people raved about them. Three of the four cupcake options were also gluten free! This was an amazing treat for those with gluten intolerance. We spent the day after the wedding delivering her amazing cupcakes to many of our friends and co-workers who were not at the wedding. Christina is not simply a chef...she is a creator and artist of amazing life giving food.

Thai Me Upp Los Angeles

    I've been working at a large technology and strategy consulting firm for the past 12 years. Recently, I was organizing a company event that required catering for 27 people. A few weeks prior to the event, I visited Thai Me Upp restaurant and really enjoyed the food, especially considering the price point. With this in mind, I decided to place and order for catering from the restaurant for my event. On the day of the event, I was honestly a bit nervous on whether the relatively new restaurant would be able to follow-through with my $300 order. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised! The restaurant owners, Arisara and Tiff, personally showed up and provided an on-time delivery. The food delivered was hot and exactly what I ordered (Chicken On-Fire, Crab Roll, Weeping Tiger Steak, and Pad Thai). With my large order, they also offered free rice, gyozas, and fried bananas. The food was flavorful, and was a hit with my attendees! After my event, Tiff followed up with me to ask how things went - a tribute to their customer service. It's the small things that count... All-in-all, this was a very positive experience; I definitely recommend Thai Me Upp's catering services!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.

      How much should catering cost for a wedding?

      The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

      • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
      • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
      • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
      • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
