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!

I can't say enough good things about Chef Tim and his crew. He worked with my fiance and I (and on a tight budget at that!) to create this wonderful customized menu that celebrated our Mexican and Brazilian roots. Then he invited us over to sample the foods that would be on our menu and was responsive to the feedback we gave him. He even was open to adding a speciality Mexican drink (horchata) to his usual menu of drinks. And all my Mexican cousins said it came out tasting exactly like what you'd find in Mexico. He was communicative and helpful throughout the planning process, arrived on time with his crew, and served the most delicious food. I had several wedding guests come up to me to rave about the quality and diversity of the food. And more than that, Chef Tim is just a legitimately nice person and his crew helped keep everything running smoothly all night. I would highly recommend him to other brides in Palm Beach County. Thanks Chef Tim for helping to make our wedding extra special!

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!!

Outstanding! We originally booked Culinary Artz for just the catering, but by the time of the wedding they handled everything from full service wedding planning with entertainment, to flowers, to decorations and site set-ups. They took care of everything, and they went above and beyond, making sure everything went perfect. We were very uneducated to what was needed and what to expect for a wedding when we first sat down with Culinary Artz, they took the time to walk us threw in detail what to expect, and answer any questions we had. We had a lot of shifts and changes in our planning, due to a lot of factors, but culinary Artz took the time to help us and to adapt to the change, they never missed a beat! They excelled at the little things that made the wedding all that much greater, like saving and serving the whole wedding party outside before we made our entrance. I can’t stress enough how much that made a difference after a long day of running around getting ready with no time to eat, especially to my wife. With Culinary Artz as our wedding planners, we never had to worry about a thing, they took are of all the set up and breakdown, all the placements and decorations looked incredible. My wife and I were able to focus on our day, and not worry about any of the planning or details. Now to the food, man was it good! I personally have never had wedding food that exited me or I thought tasted that great. Michael and his team hit it out of the park, every dish was perfect, and not one person had anything negative about the food. We received many compliments all night that the food was amazing, and we had a very diverse and picky crowd. So I’ll end with this, Culinary Artz created a beautiful stress free environment, with incredible food, that over all allowed us the enjoy the whole day the way we wanted, and for that I say thank you to the whole Culinary Artz team!

Robert and his team catered our wedding and did an exceptional job! He was communicative and had great suggestions for our menu. His team was thoughtful, polite, unobtrusive, and very professional. Our guests raved about the food all night! I had a particular recipe I asked him to make for our vegan friends and he nailed it. I would hire Robert again and feel totally confident in his ability to make any event special. Highly recommend his services!

Chef Robyn was the caterer at our wedding and handled everything to perfection. She coordinated her own team of professionals and, while dealing with some kitchen equipment malfunctions on site (our rental house oven didn't work!), Chef Robyn somehow executed a delicious meal that was the star of our special day. She was dressed fashionably and professionally when she came out of the kitchen a few times to check on things and to make sure we had a special plate so that the two of us got to taste each of the amazing 'passed apps' while we were busy during the cocktail hour. Everyone raved about the food & the service, even going back to the dinner buffet multiple times. I would recommend Chef Robyn to anyone for an event large or small.

Excellent service and food. We were very pleased and our guests were pleased. Nobody's perfect but they were close to perfect. The price was extremely reasonable. Chef Mer volunteered to come by our house in the days before our wedding to pick up supplies (cups, plates, etc) that we would have otherwise had to bring ourselves - and he did it at no additional cost to us. He also volunteered to go to Restaurant Depo to pick up champagne flutes for us because we couldn't find them on our own. Again, he did this at no cost to us. He cut our cake and served our champagne. He's just a nice guy. You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Chef! :)

It is my pleasure to recommend Alan Goldberg from Gourmet Adventures Catering. I have hosted an annual charity event at our home for many years. Gourmet Adventures Catering has become the regular caterer for this event. I have worked with Al and Jodi many times and each experience was so pleasant. I no longer require a meeting with Al as he knows the house and we take care of details over the phone. The food is amazing and my guests always rave about the creative menu and the quality. The presentation is beautifully done. Al is generous on quantity. Al runs a great team and it shows. His staff works together with no needed input from me. They are always willing to assist in preparing the home or give extra care to a special guest. It is such a pleasure to have a caterer that anticipates needs and makes decisions so not to interrupt me throughout the evening. Their consciousness of this allows me to spend my entire time with guests. These are gifts that not all caterers possess. Gourmet Adventures Catering's clean up is impeccable. An hour after the event, one would never know that 100 people were present for a party. With Al and Jodi running the catering, my events turn out flawless.

Very professional team. Extremely efficient, organized, creative and caring to every little detailed demanded from the customer. Grapes & Olives catered our wedding this June (2018) which was 100% organic, vegan, soy and gluten free. It cannot get more demanding than that and they pulled off the most delicious and varied buffet. They blew all the guest away. I would recommend them to anyone for any type of event. You will for sure get the best you possibly can get!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
