Maggie did an amazing job catering our wedding. She delivered everything we had discussed, which involved a lot of different types of food, all of which was delicious! I heard SO many people at the wedding comment on how great the food was. She made a great effort to meet us before the wedding, despite us having crazy schedules (this included her cycling and waiting for a long time in the rain until we arrived) but she was still smiling and enthusiastic Incredibly professional, very friendly, and just a great person. We can't recommend Maggie enough!

Kim couldn't have been a better choice for our wedding caterer. She was so personable, helpful, calming, and efficient, not to mention a fabulous cook! She handled everything from start to finish with the expertise of a five star chef. Everyone raved about our meal, which featured Beef Wellington. She completely took over the kitchen, but was so unobtrusive that you barely knew she was there. I would recommend her over and over for any event.

I used Pour la France to cater for my wedding. Bo is the owner and a great guy. I also had the pleasure of working with the event captain, Ryhan. They were on top of it and had great attitudes. We had a bit of an issue with the amount of food but they got creative to solve the problem and took care of me after the event, a sign of a great business. I recommend working with them! Thanks team!

We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived for our tasting appointment to potentially hire Mama Lisa's for our upcoming wedding, but when we tasted the food it was delicious! And the price was affordable. We couldn't pass up the opportunity. When the day came the staff went above and beyond. They were outgoing and friendly and took such good care of us on our special day. As the bride and groom we were unable to eat almost at all, but before the reception started the staff let us take some food and hide with our secret meals before rejoining our guests. Our family and friends were excited about the menu items, and even those who weren't all raved about the food during, and after. A couple people even asked who we hired, either curious to hire for catering, or simply to eat at their restaurant. We absolutely love this business and all they did to take care of us. If you're looking to hire a caterer, I SERIOUSLY recommend you contact Mama Lisa's and get your tasting appointment scheduled. I am very impressed with the food, kindness and professionalism that this business has.

I was blown away with the experience I had with Clark's Custom Catering for my wedding! The owner, Sean, was fantastic to work with. He truly cared about bringing my husband and I's vision to life while also being conscious about our budget. Sean was flexible and patient throughout the planning process, which made the food portion of the wedding so easy. The food was outstanding -- I still have guests raving about the meal, and the service was exceptional. I highly recommend using Clark's Custom Catering for your event!

I attended both a bridal shower and wedding catered by Knife and Pepper. The displays were beautifully done, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. There was a wide variety of food within the themes of each event and all dietary needs were met (gluten free, dairy free, etc.). From the appetizers to the desserts, everything was done with care and detail and the flavors were spot on. I highly recommend Knife and Pepper for any event!

We are so happy we went with Xim catering for our wedding! Lenny was a joy to work with. He was so enthusiastic and attentive, and really listened to all of our needs to create a menu that was delicious, interesting, and within our budget. He went above and beyond with our requests and even made small portions of each dish without onions to accommodate my mom's food allergy. He also accommodated some peanut allergies and some vegetarian special requests. The food was so delicious (still dreaming about the chicken molé!) and the signature cocktails were incredible too! The decorations at the buffet line and the bar really helped set the mood. Lenny did all that he could to make sure that everything was taken care of so we could enjoy our wedding day. We didn't have a wedding planner or a coordinator so we really appreciated that he made us feel so at ease before the big day. The staff that Lenny brought to the event were so professional, courteous, and hardworking. I can't say enough good things about our experience!

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.

BBQ King catered a graduation party I hosted with 2 other families, with about 120 guests. They offer quite a few menu choices up front, but they also cheerfully accommodated the additional ideas we brought to them. (They created a sweet potato bar for us, as an entree for vegetarian guests– though the carnivores enjoyed it, too.) I was a pretty high-maintenance customer, trying to coordinate for multiple families, and they were very patient and flexible. As we were planning the party, they were communicative and quick to answer our questions, and their estimate included a clear description of the items and services that were included in the price. The (cold and rainy) day of the party, they stayed nearby and kept the food replenished. The owner, Shane, was very friendly and professional; we enjoyed working with him, and everything ran smoothly. We received a lot of compliments on the food, and I enjoyed leftover BBQ all week.

Lyndsey catered a brunch at my home for my mother's 60th birthday party. Everything was fabulous! The lox presentation looked great, she made a lovely, delicate spinach and egg white stratta and provided perfectly made mimosas and coffee station for the 50+ guests to share. I was very pleased with everything from set up to clean up.

I hired Callan to cater my sister’s bridal shower and we were all so impressed!! Callan created the perfect brunch spread for us, and was able to accommodate various dietary restrictions (some of our guests are vegan and gluten-free). She was extremely professional and the food was amazing—I can’t recommend her highly enough!! I will definitely be hiring Callan again for any future events.

    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.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    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 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
