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)!

I had a great experience with TCG, considering it was a last minute event. I live in TX and was in Miami visiting my family when my brother told me he was getting married and was planning a small wedding ceremony. Mind you, this was about 8 days prior to his ceremony date. I searched for local catering companies and chose TCG. Alan, the manager, reached out to me via phone and e-mail. From the beginning he was very, very helpful and I greatly appreciate his professionalism and patience with the last minute event. He greatly helped me out choosing the right menu and the rental equipment at a low cost, fast, and convenient. I definitely recommend TCG and I'd use them again for future events. =) Thank you Alan!

We had service for a wedding reception in Hollywood FL. I was pleased with Tim's willingness to serve my guest promptly. My guest enjoyed the food and that was the most important to me. Upon seeing the dishes we had prepared for us I did feel the cost was too much. However, I had accepted the proposal and was willing to adhere to my agreement without discussion. In future, if you ask your hostess/host a question and you receive an answer, don't ask numerous times. I was asked for the flatware and dishes about 4 times, it drove me crazy!

We had a small wedding for 20 and we are so glad we found Laura. She was extremely professional and detailed, always emailed me back on time and made sure all my concerns where taken care of. We live in New York and had the wedding in Deerfierld Beach, i never meet Laura until the day before the wedding but her professionalism made me very confortable. Everything was beyond perfect, the service was impeccable and always made sure all my guest where well taken care of. The food was incredible, everything was delicious and very well served and prepared. I would recommend Laura to anyone that has a small or big event. Simply perfect!!! Thank you so much for making our day extra special.

I met Renee by referral, as I was planning a wedding for two dear friends. Her energy, and expertise were the perfect fit! As is the case with any formal affair, there were daily changes, and I'm sure I was making her crazy! However, she never waivered, and kept her focus and energy. The food was exceptional! We chose to have three themed 'food stations'... Asian, Latin, and Mediterranean. and it was an elegant white on white affair! The location was at the Brides' home, on the water, under a clear topped tent, with amazing lighting, and under a full moon! She also handled the creation of huge and stunning Ice Vases as centerpieces. Her attention to detail, and her follow up were critical, and she and her crew received a rousing applause from the wedding guests! I even managed to get her out of the kitchen and onto the dance floor, for "Because I'm Happy!" One additional note... I was not only the wedding planner, but I was also in the wedding party, so my nerves were on edge, being at the church, while things unfolded at the reception. We arrived in our limos to find everything moving right along as planned! Hope to work with her team again in the future. Everything was Absolutely Delish! Thank you, Renee!!

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.

Jessica and her team are so accommodating and professional. At Direct Office Solutions we have used her catering services many times and have never been disappointed. One thing that has really impressed us was the care that Red Chair takes when they delivering the food. The delivery driver sets everything up on the table for you just perfectly. We didn't haven't to lift a finger and the broccoli salad was delish!! Everyone in our office looks forward to a lunch catered by Red Chair they are definitely a must try!

We have had Chef Aaron prepare several meals for friends at our house. We typically have around 12 people or so and he plans wonderful menus. We have been very impressed with his timeliness, professionalism and quality of work. We like to experiment with various cuisines and we have been very happy with what he has prepared for us. Some examples are: Italian, Mediterranean, and French, thus far. Our guests have very much enjoyed the food and complimented us on a wonderful experience. We look forward to continuing to use Chef Aaron for future get-togethers.

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.
