I hired Pour la France for catering services for my daughter's sweet 16th Birthday event and I'm proud to say things went very well. A few things to call out about Pour la France are: 1) Customer Service: I worked with BoJames (Bo) on menu options for this event and Bo was extremely helpful and delivered excellent customer service throughout the process. I was provided with a couple of menu's to choose from and what I liked most was that the menu's provided allowed for me to be flexible with my options. 2) Food delivery: The food ordered was delivered on time (despite the snow) and at the end of the night, the Pour la France crew arrived on-time to pick up the items they delivered. This was a big deal for me as I needed the venue cleaned by the end of the night and having the team be there on time to help with clean up was a big help. 3) Food Quality: Each of the items I ordered tasted great and came with great quality! 4) Food Quantity/Portion Sizes: This category is the only reason I'm giving Pour la France a 4 instead of 5 star rating. Although I worked with Bo on my menu options, I did expect the portion sizes to be a little more robust than what they were. However, I only ordered from the Appetizer and HD menu's so part of the blame is on me for not fully asking the question of whether or not the food I ordered would be enough for a room size of 50 - 60 people. All-in-all I would recommend Pour la France's services and I will likely use them again for future events.

Thomas was wonderful. The food was delicious, the prep and cleanup impeccable, and his personality warm and friendly. It was a graduation party for our son and his friends. Not only did Thomas and Joelle do a great job catering, he even shared grilling techniques with the group. I would definitely hire him again.

Lisa showed up on time and set up an appealing display of delicious food. There were about 100 people at the event and a number of them commented on how great the food was. She returned on time to clean up. She was very easy to work with and was responsive to my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend her catering services to others

I enjoyed working with this catering company! The food was pretty good and the catering delivery had the challenge of getting the food out & presentable very quietly, which went well. I had to take a star off because the chicken was undercooked on the two meals set aside for our folks with dietary restrictions and delivery on the second day was about 20 minutes late. Overall, the experience was good and I will keep them in the list of caterers for future events.

We love working with the team from Luke's! They have catered our company events many times and everyone looks forward to the steak sandwiches & salmon each year! I have been in charge of planning our events for the last few years and have worked with Bob and his team the last two summers - they are professional and extremely helpful, even providing extra plates & plastic cutlery for the potluck portion of our event after we ran out! Our company picnic took place outside and, as is common during summer afternoons, we got caught in a thunderstorm but the staff from Luke's took everything in stride, relocating the food service to a more sheltered area and keeping all the guests happy and well-fed. Working with such a well-prepared and experienced team made what could have been a really stressful situation for an event planner very easy to handle and Luke's really helped make our event a success!

We contacted 3 Chicks Kitchen for catering a birthday party. The catering menu didn't match up with the regular restaurant menu and we wanted to try out the dishes before committing. Sandy had us come over one afternoon after the restaurant closed and we were able to taste everything that we were considering for our event. Sandy was interested in our feedback about taste, texture, and asked us what our preferences were. She took notes about our special requests and got back to us within a day or two with a quote. Sandy has been very responsive and helpful. We look forward to 3 Chicks Kitchen's help with this event.

I consider myself a seasoned traveler and a lover of food. I'm serious, when I say...the best food/dishes I've had in my life, have been made by Chef Rick, of Intergrity Custom Catering. I highly recommend the cajun dishes. They are tremendous. I've also had some yummy chicken and seafood dishes and great steaks. Chef Rick is happy and honest and will make you feel spoiled. He works very hard to make sure everyone is happy, pleased,...and FULL.

The food was delicious and innovative and we had a ton of options to choose from. J Street was easy to work with and very responsive with answering all of my questions. I’ve had their food several times and I’m never disappointed with the quality or taste. I would definitely recommend checking out their monthly menu on the food truck and using their catering services for any special event!

      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.
