Chef Cathy led my boyfriend and I in a wonderful evening cooking Japanese food! She was so kind and fun and taught us so much about the intricacies of Japanese cuisine. She allowed us to be very hands on, prepared an entire dinner plan with easy step by step instructions, and brought all the necessary supplies. I would highly recommend Chef Cathy for any dinner occasion! I will definitely hire her again to teach us how to cook other types of food.

Chef Robert is the bomb! I contacted several Jacksonville caterers through Thumbtack, and his menu was the most interesting. He catered a birthday luncheon for 14 people and was willing to suggest, adjust, add, and subtract to accommodate all my preferences. When he arrived, he was professional and personal. I had asked for buffet service, and his presentation was lovely, including special attention to the birthday guest of honor. Every item on the menu was delicious; I especially recommend his crab cake martinis and jerk chicken fajitas. Yum! He spaced out service so that the meal took a couple of hours, perfect for savoring each course. Unfortunately, I was too busy enjoying the experience to remember to take photos. I live in Indiana, otherwise I'd hire him again next week! Thanks, Chef Robert, for a memorable 50th birthday celebration!

I'm a event planner who I hired Chef Floyd and his staff at Café Coastal to cater a dual birthday party for my clients. It was a pleasure working with Chef Floyd and his staff. They are experienced, professional and hardworking. The food was delicious, all the guest raved about every dish and his Asian Tuna Tartar is the best. I will jump at any opportunity to work with them in the future. Thanks again Chef Floyd for providing top-notch service!!!

    The Hazel Nut staff is very professional, and promt. The food was absolutely devine. I gave Chef Eric my menu, we hashed out all the detail on when I needed the food ready, where to deliver. The rest was in his hands. The display was colorful, neat, and the food itself was a hit with the guess. Definately will use Hazel Nut Grill again for all of my parties and events. Those mini sandwhiches, and gumbo will be on every last one of my must haves for my menu.

    Alvaro had delivered a large order for Deutsche Bank employees and his food was very good. He presented himself dressed as a chef, had all the food in large aluminum trays and their warmers - to keep the food warm. It was well presented and delicious. He also included dessert made by him, as well.

    We were in a bind for an Open House party when our plans for catering fell through. We were expecting 40 to 60 professionals and had one week to find another option. I accessed Thumbtack for the first time, and Karin Munnell with K&J Heart Healthy Catering responded. Prompt response, very professional, and the food delicious! Even with the short time frame, she was able to meet with us and bring samples. She worked within our requests - like having no onsite kitchen - and brought us some great ideas too. I recommend her highly. Very pleased with Thumbtack as well!

    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.
