Danielle and Kelly were outstanding. They arrived when they said they would be here and handled all aspects of the party from food prep, welcoming the guests, drinks, clean up, etc. Service was outstanding. They are professional and personable. I highly recommend them. We will use them every time we have a event or party. They made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy our guests.

Had a private party and they catered. Food was amazing! Steak was to die for and so was the fish. Great sauces for both. I would strongly recommend them if you are looking for an upscale catering company.

I hired Paul and The Dancing Palate for my wedding on November 20, 2015. Paul was wonderful from the start. We had a tasting right away and it went wonderfully. I had contact more than half a dozen caterers but couldn't get them to be as flexible as Paul was especially for the price. The Dancing Palate is a fantastic value. The food was served on time, warm, and I got many compliments after the wedding. We had 135 guests and a 90 minute sit down dinner. I wanted family style with items served in bowls and sharing, yet sit down at the same time. I didn't find many caterers that would do that, but Paul understood me and it was perfect. A real family meal at our rustic classic wedding. I was very happy with the Dancing Palate and if I had to plan my wedding all over again would hire him back.

We hired Tasty Creations Catering for a plated dinner party for 32 people and we could not have been happier with the result. Despite unforeseen and uncontrollable setbacks, David, his wife and team performed above expectation and delivered an amazing dinner. David's experience, professionalism, patience and flexibility were evident throughout the entire process. He kept us informed and took time to answer all of our questions leading up to the days of the event. The food he prepared was delicious and was exactly what was promised. He was sensitive to allergies and preparation preferences. We will be calling Tasty Creations Catering for all events in the future. Thank you to David and his team for making our event special.

From start to finish via customer support, service, options, pricing, flexibility, courteous, delivery, set-up, pickup, food presentation, excellent tasting food. This caterer/catering service is without question, without doubt, unequivocally the best! Thank you for Exquisite for being everything you advertise, and even more. The milestone event was a big success largely due to your service. At least several guest preserved the napkins with your contact info, and 1 guest will be contacting you service shortly for their own upcoming event. The food was awesome not only in presentation, but in taste as well! Thank you again!

Stop looking for any other caterers and work with these ladies. I hired them to cater my sister's bachelorette/birthday party (20 people) and it was amazing! I asked for an authentic Cuban dinner and they DELIVERED. Everyone was raving about how delicious everything was and we had enough leftover to eat throughout the rest of the weekend (best drunk food ever!). They also went above an beyond and made me a chocolate cake to celebrate my sister's 30th. They even decorated the buffet to go along with our Cuban theme. They also told us about all of these amazing bars to visit while we were there. It was so helpful because none of us had ever been to Miami before. We had an absolute blast, and I can't wait to use them again if I'm ever in Miami! I wish I would've taken some photos of the buffet and the food, but 1) it was destroyed so quickly because everyone was starving. 2) I was so focused on how amazing this cake was (the photos aren't doing it justice)! Thank you again for everything, girls!

Maoz cooked a complete buffet-style dinner for ten, including desserts that included two cakes with the names of two people having birthdays written in frosting. The food was excellent! Maoz showed-up on-time and did all he promised! He helped with all aspects of the event, including dishwasher loading and most of the kitchen cleaning. His lamb chops were breaded and enjoyed by all, as was his airline chicken. His asparagus was also perfect. Easy communication, fair price. no fuss, no muss! Thanks Maoz!

I had a wonderful experience with Rice catering from start to finish. He was super flexible in designing a menu, he was on time, and communicative. The food was delicious!!! We had brunch and mimosas for a bridal shower. It was elegant and satisfying. Not to mention Chef Wally’s personality is very relaxed and helpful. Guests started arriving and he had it all set up so that I could enjoy the party and I wasn’t in the kitchen the whole time. The bride is now considering having him cater her wedding. I will definitely hire him again.

Rosalia's food is AMAZING!! It's like having your grandmother cooking for you, preparing your favorite meals every week. It's also so easy to order online - plus I can customize my order and swap out ingredients for healthy options. Love that! I've even had them cater a party at my house and their empanadas are to die for - they were gobbled up in seconds! The kids loved them - a real crowd pleaser.

Sidney the owner did a great great 👍 job my wife and I were very appreciative for her professionalism Sidney had made my wife’s favorite drink ready when she walked in to her surprise birthday party. Sidney made sure she walked throughout the part and took orders at their tables not just behind the bar at their tables. It was a great pleasure she was very professional I would highly recommend her company. We will definitely use them again.

My experience with the company was amazing. My party was for 45 people but there was enough food there to feed way more. They were on time to set up and were very organized. I ordered from the Puerto Rican menu, as I am Puerto Rican myself, and everything tasted great. Everyone loved the food. I have recommended him to several people. He will not disappoint! His work ethic is admirable. Thank you again!

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.
