We were extremely fortunate to have had Dade County Food Group cater our wedding last week. Not only did they provide us with EXCELLENT service during our event but Brian was by far the EASIEST, most DOWN-TO-EARTH caterer to work with in the days leading up to our wedding. He helped us execute the vision we had by working within our budget and providing us with useful strategies about event flow and advice about different plating options and ingredients. At the end of the day, Brian and his team at Dade County Food Group prepared the most DELICIOUS food we have ever had at a wedding. The food was even better than what we tried during the tasting (which didn't seem possible!). All of our guests couldn't stop raving about the food and most went up and got seconds. Even abuela! Our guests even chanted his name during the reception!!! That's unheard of!!! In addition to the unbelievably tasty food, Brian's staff (waiters, water servers, bus boys, bartenders, chefs, etc) were friendly and fun but maintained their professionalism. At the end of the reception, Brian and his staff worked quickly and efficiently to remove all their equipment from the venue and they even helped our families pick up. Heck, they even arrived 1 day before the wedding to help set up! I know what you're thinking, "This sounds to good to be true." It's not. Brian and his team are thoughtful, honest, hard working, caring, and resourceful. And at the end of the day, they cook some REALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD FOOD. At the very least you should contact DCFG for your catering needs. I promise you won't be disappointed with them. I guarantee they will cook the BEST DAMN FOOD you have ever tried. And if you don't agree, then please send the food my way because I have been dying for another bite ever since our wedding day!

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)!

Two days ago, we had a small wedding of 30 people for my daughter and our experience with The Dancing Palate was excellent. Because it was a beach wedding, we had to bring everything in ourselves. The chef, Chef Paul, is truly a professional and made the process seamless. We hired an event planner through him, Claudia of Passionate Events, and she coordinated EVERYTHING -- the rentals, the cake, the decorations --- and on the day of the event, she set everything up, sat down with all of us and oversaw the whole timeline as well as make the announcements as to the first dance, etc. The food was prepared at the event and was delicious, the cake was beautifully designed and delicious, also. There was one glitch with the cake design due to a miscommunication and Chef Paul ran out and came back and fixed it on the spot! They completely cleaned up afterwards. The place was spotless. If you want a "worry-free" event, hire Chef Paul and Claudia!

My wife and I hired this company to cater our wedding. We had a small wedding of 150 people. I say small because it was originally 225 people. Tasty Creations was certainly the right company to call for our wedding. They worked with our budget, and offered great choices to make our wedding possible with the size of wedding it was. The staff was always helping our guests and refilling water at the table. This was one of the main things that we wanted to ensure happened since it was an out door wedding. Josefina and Chef David ensured us that this would happen and it did. Many times you are promised the little things and they never happen, but not with this company. The food was amazing, hot, and had lots of flavor. We even had leftovers that Chef told us we could take home. He packaged them up for us, and we ate of them for a couple days since we had family still in town. Certainly a great company to use for a wedding and any catered function you may need them at.

Best choice for my wedding! From the moment a met Chefs Valeria and Alex I knew I had made the right choice. They understood the challenges of my venue and the mix of guests, and helped me tailor the menu for the evening. They even crafted a cocktail menu with unique names just for us! The day of the wedding it was all perfect, I heard nothing but great things from all my guests about the food, presentation and professionalism of the staff. It was an overall amazing experience working with this group, they really go out of their way to accommodate and work with you, plus the food its absolutely delicious!! Thank you again! Hulda and Mike!

Chef O is the best! and I'm not one to hand out praise very freely. The food was on point and very well executed (we should have ordered even more :) even though we were very well fed), service and attention to detail was top notch, and we felt like we were dealing with an old friend and not just a chef for hire. You won't regret using these guys. Thanks again chef! We will be using you again real soon.

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.
