My name is Hazel , I had requested many inquiries for caterers for my upcoming wedding. First wonderful impression Brian gave was that he was the first to response. What I loved about him and his company as well, was that he offered customized food menus to go with my liking. :) I thought that was wonderful. Unfortunately, I was not able to book him due to the budget I have and I had to settle for a banquet hall. I loved how he was attentive, that when I had forgotten to contact him for 2 days he kindly contacted me. I will ALWAYS reserve his information if another occasion comes, and I would DEFINITELY recommend him to my family, friends, and any other people out there. Keep up the good work Brian! :) Very outstanding and attentive customer service.

Chef Jeff catered our wedding with made-to-order omelets and all the sides. It was great! From having us in his home for an omelet lunch tasting to bringing us flowers on our special day, he met all of our expectations and then some. Our guests all loved him and commented to us on his professionalism as well as his friendly personality. We can't thank him enough for all that he did to make our wedding brunch a success. We highly recommend him and are sure to hire him again for our next big party (or maybe even a private dinner for two)!

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%.

I am so thrilled that we found Tasty Creations Catering for my daughter's wedding. This is the most professional Catering Company anyone could ever find. The communication between Chef David and his beautiful wife, are outstanding. I had asked question after question and always received responses back immediately or very soon after. They both made me feel special during this whole ordeal with the wedding planning. They were never too busy to communicate. After searching several Catering Companies, Tasty Creations came through with a superb menu for my daughter's wedding. They worked with us according to our budget and never did they make us feel like we were cheap with the dollar amount we were able to afford. Chef David set up a tasting for us and him and his wife came out to our place to do the tasting of appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and even cake tasting. The remarkable thing about Chef David, is that all his food is prepared right in front of you at the tasting and everything is so fresh and delicious. He even cracks jokes while preparing the foods for tasting. He's from North Carolina, which told me right off the bat, that he was going to be good! Chef David is very unique as he comes out to the site of the event and doesn't bring already prepared food to just set on warming trays. He comes out to the event hours about 4 hours in advance and prepares each food item right there! I find that amazing as not many places offer that type of catering service. He is the best in our book and I would never look any further again. He was prompt and his serving staff was very professional looking and super pleasant. The food was so fresh and absolutely the most delicious food we have ever had. It was an honor to hear our guests keep complimenting the meal. As a side note, I was in a bind for our rehearsal dinner, and I contacted Chef David and explained it was short notice but I wanted to see if he could help us out. I told him we had a very limited dollar amount for the rehearsal dinner and explained briefly what we wanted to have that evening. Chef David got back with me a few hours later with a menu plan that was right in our budget and exactly what we were looking for as far as the dinner we had hoped to have. Chef David and Margarita are willing to work with you no matter what your budget may be and you never have to be embarrassed if you are limited in what you can spend. By the way, Chef David is the absolute best lasagna maker! We have ordered numerous trays from him just to have for ourselves for dinner. We have never found any restaurant that can come close to Chef David's lasagna! Hats off to the best Caterer in the world, Chef David from Tasty Creations Catering! (By the way, Chef David, you finally have a hat to wear)! Lol You can't go wrong with Tasty Creations Catering!

I booked this caterer for my wedding on 12/30/17. I'm Jamaican and my husband and I wanted the jerk chicken with rice and pease. We also had the chance to taste the food prior to booking for the wedding. We worked with Kathy and told her what we like and didn't like at the tasting. The food was awesome at the wedding ! I would like for the chef to be recognized. We had so many compliments about the food. To my regret i didn't get the chance to take any pictures of the food. The servers were so kind and punctual. They provided awesome services. Thank you all for the great work.

I had a great experience with TCG, considering it was a last minute event. I live in TX and was in Miami visiting my family when my brother told me he was getting married and was planning a small wedding ceremony. Mind you, this was about 8 days prior to his ceremony date. I searched for local catering companies and chose TCG. Alan, the manager, reached out to me via phone and e-mail. From the beginning he was very, very helpful and I greatly appreciate his professionalism and patience with the last minute event. He greatly helped me out choosing the right menu and the rental equipment at a low cost, fast, and convenient. I definitely recommend TCG and I'd use them again for future events. =) Thank you Alan!

Chef Robyn was the caterer at our wedding and handled everything to perfection. She coordinated her own team of professionals and, while dealing with some kitchen equipment malfunctions on site (our rental house oven didn't work!), Chef Robyn somehow executed a delicious meal that was the star of our special day. She was dressed fashionably and professionally when she came out of the kitchen a few times to check on things and to make sure we had a special plate so that the two of us got to taste each of the amazing 'passed apps' while we were busy during the cocktail hour. Everyone raved about the food & the service, even going back to the dinner buffet multiple times. I would recommend Chef Robyn to anyone for an event large or small.

Our club was in an pinch- we needed a caterer and fast- our End of Season Party date was quickly approaching - we used thumbtack to find a reasonably priced caterer nearby- Chef Adam of Final Touch Catering heeded our call and to our delight exceeded all our expectations! We were supposed to have a "drop off " event. Chef Adam came a few days before the event to see the venue - on the night of the event He brought everything we could need for a successful dinner party of 32. Chef set up all the food and of course he stayed for the evening. His pride and work ethic would not let him leave his beautiful, delicious offerings His appetizers, main courses and dessert were Cooked to perfection. He cleaned up when dinner was done - even washed the floor where he worked. Thanks to Chef Adam of Final Touch Catering our evening was a huge success. Our club is already planning an event around he amazing cuisine for next season Thank you Chef Adam of Final Touch Catering for making both Karen and I a social success! See ya real soon Lynn Valencia Isles Baby Boomer

Very professional team. Extremely efficient, organized, creative and caring to every little detailed demanded from the customer. Grapes & Olives catered our wedding this June (2018) which was 100% organic, vegan, soy and gluten free. It cannot get more demanding than that and they pulled off the most delicious and varied buffet. They blew all the guest away. I would recommend them to anyone for any type of event. You will for sure get the best you possibly can get!

    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.

    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 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 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.
