Great company! They are very friendly and most importantly the food was delicious! The caterers created my menu custom to my needs, wants and visions. They forgot a few things and there were a couple hiccups in the road but they fixed them immediately and in the end, it all ran smoothly! I'm glad I chose them as my caterers.

Chef Wells came up to the house as a surprise from my husband to cook for us both! Each course was amazing starting with the soup into the trio entree followed by delicious dessert! Freshly prepared food right before our eyes, it was an astonishing experience in the comfort of our home! I cannot say enough about the flavor and variety of each presentation! We loved every bite!

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 :)

The entire experience, from planning to execution was impeccable. Our event included 200 guests, a full bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, salad, plated meals and a dessert bar. The food was outstanding, the staff was lovely and our evening was stellar. I highly recommend The Dancing Palate for any size event.

Tasty Creations was the perfect vendor I was looking for in order to solidify my decision to choose The Cooper Estate as my wedding venue. The bulk of the wedding expenses came from the food, so I needed a catering company that was affordable, professional, and delicious! When I filled out what I needed for my wedding through Thumbtack, I couldn’t believe the quick response I got from Tasty Creations. Once I saw their services and prices, I actually thought it might have been too good to be true. Upon meeting David during our scheduled food tasting, I was astonished at his amiable personality and professionalism. His presentation of himself, his company, and his food were truly impressive. It was delightful to see that he was well acquainted with the food industry, but had not let the food industry taint his southern charm. During the tasting he took the time to sit down and address all of our concerns. He was clear with what he could provide, patient, and understanding of the vision we had for our wedding. With all of this, we booked him and he continued to prove his proficiency with his attentiveness to emails, calls, and any other additional requests we had. His confidence in his work allowed us to feel at ease, as we got closer to our big day! Once our wedding day came, David, his lovely wife, and servers worked seamlessly with the staff at The Cooper Estate. He personally served us during cocktail hour right before taking photos, and he made sure to serve us during dinner. I’ve heard horror stories about brides and grooms not tasting a sliver of food on their wedding day, but this was no issue for us. Unfortunately, after dinner and dessert I quickly hit the dance floor and stayed there for the rest of the night, so I was unable to thank him and his staff in person for everything they did for us. Tasty Creations was one of the biggest reasons our wedding was unforgettable. All of my guests were truly pleased with his delicious food, and because of that, I will definitely be using his catering service again! Thank you David and servers! Your company is surely grounded on great work ethic, thoughtfulness, and amazing taste!

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!

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!

José was the epitome of a personal chef. I have set up events with chefs before and he blew us away with his professionalism, delicious cooking, and personality as a whole! Jose made the process very easy and he quoted a great price that we were comfortable with. He did not try to rip us off like other chefs try to do. We are all from out of town for a bachelorette party and wanted to do a fun night in to relax and have great food for our last night. He prepared homemade Chinese food with spring rolls, dumplings, fried rice, sticky chili chicken, broccoli, and a delicious chocolate cake cup dessert with vanilla ice cream! His sticky chili chicken had a Peruvian twist and was party favorite! A few of us have a serious peanut and shellfish allergy and he suggested foods to have on the menu and was very responsive to any needs we needed. I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely use if we are back in town! Thank you José!!!

I had the pleasure of sampling some of that GrenHous cuisine when Mark was the guest chef at the BB&T Arena. He and his staff were extremely informative when I asked about the ingredients and preparation of the juiciest airline chicken breast on butternut squash puree I've ever had, followed by the energyballs dessert(had 5!) made with almonds, chia, flax, dates, coconut...Fiiiiire! The food is excellent. Presentation first class. But more than anything i was very impressed by their attitudes, pride in what they were serving. These dudes are passionate about what they do. Do yourself a damn favor and treat yourself to experiencing this food!

Michelle impressed me in so many ways. This was a completely last minute request and she was spot on with her organization and set up as well as awesome desserts that she chose for a 4th of July party with over 50 guests and only 2 days notice. I can't wait to have her back and try her adult desserts next!! Thanks again Michelle for making it such a special evening!! Mike Geraud Tropical Florida Rentals

Had a 50th birthday party and it was a 70th theme and he was a night to remember because Social Butterfly Events, (SBE) brought my vision to light. The one thing I requested was a dessert bar and I must tell you the cupcakes came in different flavors and I fell over with the banana pudding and red velvet cupcakes. I have used (SBE) 4 times...and this is definitely my go to Event Planner for sure.

Melva Catering and event rental is truly amazing. I attended a Gala hosted by them and the experience was nothing short of phenomenal. The decorations and ambiance of the event was beautiful and professionally done. They also provided entertainment ,had an amazing dj and a live band! I would definitely book them for an event I plan in the future.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
