Jeffrey was the perfect addition to our family's dinner party, part of the fun but professional & 100% focused on preparing our DELICIOUS food. He prepared several appetizers, main courses, sides (that bread!!! so good!!) & of course fabulous dessert. And wine pairings! There was SO much food (in a good way!) and we eat a lot. Definitely got what we paid for. Jeffrey gave us a night we will never forget & wish we could hire him full time...if only we lived in Florida :)

Chef Traci was so awesome! We hired him for a girls bachelorette party weekend and he catered the following meals for us: Appetizers upon arrival, Breakfast and Dinner. The food was amazing, they made specialty drinks, fabulous dessert, great breakfast, amazing appetizers and dinner was truly unforgettable. He accommodated our group of 10+ women and made amazing food for us! I am looking to hire him again for another trip to Miami.

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!

I was chair person for a Kiwanis fundraiser. I hired The Catering Group to provide the buffet for 210 people. From the time I spoke to Alan, I knew I had made a wise choice. We did a tasting at my home and went from there. The food was delicious, the guests had many choices along with dessert and coffee. The presentation was nice and the personnel was helpful and professional. I highly recommend this caterer.

Chef Tim is hands down the best chef in town. His professionalism speaks for itself. We hired him for our Husband Appreciation Day celebration that took place yesterday October 2, 2016. Dinner was delicious and his crême brulée dessert was one of a kind. To top it all, he left the kitchen super clean. We will definitely hire him again. Thanks again, Chef Tim!!!

We hired Laura Ashley for a 60th birthday party for 45 people at our home and it was truly a 10 for the food and a 12 for the professional and friendly service. Our friends raved about the appetizers,dinner and desserts and mentioned how happy and nice all the staff was. Everything was taken care of from adding flowers and decor and the cleanup immaculate. Thank you so much Laura for making our special occasion perfec! We would recommend hiring Laura Ashley caterers as we did without even trying her food just based on the reviews and now we know why she has such rave reviews! the

One of the best decisions we could have made. Rosanna’s cake was phenomenal and exactly what we wanted and described...and even better. The dessert table also exceeded all of our expectations. I love it, they were one of the focal points at the party bringing together our family for pictures and videos. Her work was incredible beautiful and our guests are still talking about how delicious the cake was. Rosanna was easy to work with, professional and incredibly organized. It was a pleasure to work with her! I was so stressful last weeks and she said “Trust me, I’m going to work as if its my daughter’ quinceanera party” and she made A piece of art!! Could not be happier with the results. We are looking forward to another special event so we can have more of this cake and beautiful deserts. Thank you Rosanna.

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!

Cafe Delish and Renee was absolutely Amazing! I would use her again for any event that I have - PLUS recommend her to any of my friends, family and colleagues. Café Delish was very easy to work with, had a spectacular presentation, and "delish-ish" food! I called up with short notice (probably not recommended!), and Renee was easy going, was able to talk to me and know what I wanted and to create exactly what was need to make my Dad's 70th surprise party exactly as I had envisioned - including a 70 in an ice sculpture! How many caterers can do that for you in the last minute?! Her prices were very reasonable. She was right on time, and picked up to make everything very easy for me. Everyone raved about the food and the presentation (and I got the credit!). Referrals for Renee will be coming! I will have to share pictures when I download them from my real camera! Many thanks to a job over what was expected!

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!

Let me start by saying that this was a last-minute plan that I made the day before Valentine's Day. I made a request through Thumbtack and in a very short time Chef Ricardo contacted me to confirm he was available and provided his menu and price. I called him and he went through in more detail his menu and suggestions based on our food preference. He has a lot of menu offerings by the way in varied cuisines. I could tell that he was friendly and professional just by talking to him. Meeting him in person confirmed my assumptions. He was an absolute pleasure to have in our home. He did a really fun cooking lesson with us while he was prepping the meal. He started by making fresh mango margaritas which he served at the beginning and then he showed us how to make the appetizer, entree and dessert, and we had some 'hands on' too with making crepes. He prepped our dining table and served our meal. The food was beautifully plated and most importantly it was delicious! While we ate, Chef cleaned up our kitchen and dishes. We will definitely use him again for special occasions and would highly recommend him. Thanks Chef for making this Valentines one of the most special ever!

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.

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.

Chef Mer catered our bachelorette brunch and the food was fantastic! We had French toast, guava & cheese pastry, two kinds of quiche, breakfast potatoes (huge hit!), fruit skewers and bacon. Our guests were raving about the food and ate 2nds and 3rds. He set everything up perfectly and showed up right on time. If you're looking for an organized, well priced and delicious caterer...this is your guy! Thank you so much Chef Mer!

Carla is an outstanding chef. Organized, inventive, reliable, thrifty, sensible, professional, personable. Her food is delicious She was a delight to have in our family for about 2 years. A big stick of dynamite in a small package!! (she is petite, but that never slowed her down - I saw her pick up an entire BBQ unit and move it) Recommend Carla highly. She can cook with the best of them.

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.
