Jeff was fantastic. We had a house warming party with about 30 people and he brought some new ideas and fun food options that were new and exciting. He brought two employees to help and they were fantastic as well. Our party was last minute by he was able to quickly take action and was extremely responsive and helpful the entire time. We I'll definitely work with Jeff for any catering needs we have in the future.

Thanks to Chef Paul and his team our wedding reception was absolutely perfect! The service was great from beginning to end. Paul came to our house and did a private tasting for my now husband and I. We were blown away. We decided to go with him for our special day. He always got right back to me with my several questions. And he had an answer for everything. He had his rental company match the lowest quote I could find for tables and chairs and totally worked with our budget. He talked about his menu and food items with so much passion. And you could taste that…. The food was great! All the guests were impressed! He was so flexible with my being a very indecisive bride. When we finally did decide on the menu…they delivered. The meats were tender and juicy. The veggies were not mushy and full of flavor. The cornbread was amazing. The macaroni and cheese was as gourmet as it gets and had bacon!! YUM! The comfort food isn't usually on their menu but they did it for me and they nailed it! ….and it was fancy! We had two buffet lines for 120 people with a server at every dish making it efficient and easy for our guests. There wasn't anyone who left hungry. The bartenders and staff were friendly and accommodating. We needed a dance floor very last minute over some cobblestone and they made that happen! They made everything happen even beyond the food! Not only would I highly recommend their catering…. I will most likely use them again! A huge thanks to The Dancing Palate from a very satisfied bride!

From day one meeting David felt like seeing an old friend after a few years apart. He was so easy to work with and was open to all of our ideas and shared ideas of his own. After our wedding was postponed due to the hurricane, David and Josefina made the impossible possible. They literally went above and beyond to make our special day perfect, and that it was, simply perfect. The staff bent over backwards to cater to us and our guests, and the guest were lining up at the buffet line for seconds. The food was so amazing. Our family and friends had so many good things to say about the food. We not only got lucky to find an amazing catering company with Tasty Creations, but we also got lucky in making a new forever friendship with David and Josefina. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We love you guys!! Kenny and Mimi March 18, 2018

We had a really great experience with The Catering Group. Allan took care of every single detail at the party. Very professional, came early to set up and all the severs, cooks and bartenders were very professional and the food was delicious. I have never been at a party in my own house where I just felt like a guest. I have to admit... I didn't do anything! The Catering Group took care of everything and when they left everything was completely cleaned. Awesome job! Thank you Allan, we will definitely call you again for our next gathering. If you really want to "wow" your guests at your next party, call The Catering Group!! you won't be disappointed.

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

Cafe Delish catered my husbands surprise 30th birthday party.. they were absolutely amazing! Renee helped me keep everything a secret.. made sure she didn’t reach out to me if she thought he would be around..the food was SO delicious!! It was displayed beautifully and tasted absolutely amazing. Everyone is STILL raving about the food. The appetizers were passed around during our little mingeling hour and presented beautifully and the taste was great. I’ve had many people tell me they have never tasted chicken like this. The chicken was so moist and had so much flavor. The bartender was very sweet, professional and made the drinks so fast there was never a line. I will definitely be using them when I need another caterer. You won’t go wrong with this wonderful company!!!Thank you SO MUCH Renee! You made our party unforgettable!

Chef Levita did a wonderful job catering my mother's 90th anniversary celebration for 15 people. The food was wonderful and the presentation lovely. He helped me make some very wise choices for my group which I also appreciated. These included summer rolls, sushi, sliced tenderloin, Casear salad, haricots vertes with garlic roasted potatoes and a wonderful, freshly-baked chocolate cake. He and his assistant Carlos made my gathering a great success.

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.

I loved every moment of communicating with Rafael and every little bite he and his parents prepared! My family spoke of the food for days later! They were very accommodating for some vegan family members and didn't rush the meal. I can't wait for more of their food for the holidays! I highly recommend!! Amazing quality and value!

Jimmy catered a "Bend and Brunch" baby shower for myself and about 15 guests and did a fantastic job! I've never used a chef service before but now I can't wait to find opportunities to use Chef Jimmy - it made the event so much more enjoyable because I didn't have to worry about planning, shopping, setting up or cleaning up. Would highly recommend!

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.
