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 am always very skeptical with looking for services online, but I honestly couldn't have chosen a better Catering Company for my wedding :D. From professionalism to great food quality, Paul, the chef, truly knows how to accommodate each request and make your experience a memorable one. Great costumer service! He works with your budget and advise of better options. Paul was always available and able to answer my questions; if he was not able to answer at the moment he would make sure he'd send me a message letting me know and that he'd call me back as soon as he could. My wedding was very challenging, we had rented a venue for an outside ceremony and reception but that day was raining, last minute everything had to be changed to indoors and Paul had absolutely everything under control. The feedback i received from my family was how well organized everything was and how much they like the food. We rented tables, chairs, linens, plates & silverware, food, and the cake through The Dancing Palate, and they took care of all details, set up and clean up. They even made sure both me and my husband ate first (most people can't even taste their own food at their weddings). I am really really grateful and happy with The Dancing Palate. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them 100%.

Words cannot describe the service Chef David provided us. Chef David did the impossible and not only catered our event but provided photography, all tables/chairs/silverware, and lighting. The dedication and end result blew my expectations. If I can give a 10-Star rating I would. Believe me Chef, you will be getting a phone call for our marriage renewal! I wish you the best and thank you once again to the catering team that not just bends over backwards but flips and makes our dreams come true!

We had the pleasure of working with C and F catering for our December wedding. Cythnia was amazing!! These ladies are very professional and very accommodating. They did barbecue style food for our event, and it was awesome! Cythnia and Felicia are honest and transparent, and their staff is excellent. Cynthia was willing to work within our budget and helped us make several changes and adjustments as the big day got closer. My husband and I loved these ladies as our vendor and we highly recommend this catering service. We hope to work them again one day!

Chef Levita did a wonderful job catering my mother's 90th anniversary celebration for 15 people. The food was wonderful and the presentation lovely. He helped me make some very wise choices for my group which I also appreciated. These included summer rolls, sushi, sliced tenderloin, Casear salad, haricots vertes with garlic roasted potatoes and a wonderful, freshly-baked chocolate cake. He and his assistant Carlos made my gathering a great success.

Hired the guys at Grenhouse for a last minute event that needed catering. They were a pleasure to work with. Communication with them was seamless and they responded promptly to my messages. I especially love that they brought “farm-to-table” in a food truck, which meant we didn’t have to deal with a crazy setup. I didn’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience. They even tried their best to accommodate some of my menu requests at the last minute. Oh, and the food is DELICIOUS. Definitely recommend.

Mauricio did a special dinner for my husband and I and we couldn't have been more impressed and satisfied with his work and creativity! He spent time creating a menu to fit our taste and it was amazing! The freshness and quality in the food was outstanding and the attention he paid to detail was impeccable. We will use Mauricio forever now! He cleaned up after the meal and there aren't enough words to describe how nice this experience was.

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.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

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.
