Corwin and his staff did an amazing job catering our wedding! We have nothing but positive things to say. Corwin provided amazing service and the food was delicious. We received raving reviews from our guests about how great the food was. We were from out of town, but Corwin was always accessible and worked with us planning our menu for our special occasion. Corwin has been a pleasure to work with, and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly and professional caterer.

I was throwing a Bowties & Cardigans 30th Birthday party for my husband and Bless My Soul Food Catering & More truly made the experience a night to remember. It was a grown folk house party with music/games/etc. so we didn't want anything too formal like a sit down dinner party. I told Chef Nae some of my husbands favorites & the theme and she blew our minds. He loves lasagna but that's not a dish for this type of party. She made a Lasagna Bake with bowtie noodles and several other elegant appetizer-style foods. She also made his favorite, her famous, Red Velvet Cheesecake. The layout was elegant with the 2-tier Red Velvet Cheesecake in the middle. I highly recommend Bless My Soul Food Catering & More for ALL of your dining and catering needs. I also use her personal chef services as I'm a super busy entrpreneur, wife, mom, etc. My family loves EVERY meal. YOU SHOULD BOOK BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE TODAY!

This review is defiantly a late one, but, its needed. Nikki ( The white table) was the caterer for my wedding on March 18, 2017. Held at the Ocoee Lakeshore Center in Ocoee Fl. Everything may not have gone as planned but, they worked with us on things that we wanted and was able to provide us with a request that they probably had never done before. Because we are in a similar business as food service is concerned ourselfs, we wanted to bring in things and they allowed us to. The food was good as so was their service. We were greatful for them and appreciate everything that was able to be done for us on such a short notice and limited time frame. My husband and I live in Tallahassee fl, our wedding was in Orlando fl. So we had some challenges with the fact that it was a out of town wedding we werent able to meet Nikki until the day before out wedding because of our sehedule and everything still turned out wonderfully! Thank You Nikki!

In a word... WOW! I can't begin to tell you how delighted we are that Bob provided the catering for our wedding day! Right from the beginning I had a great feeling about Bob. He was always super efficient with his email replies, answered all our queries, and gave plenty of information as to what he could provide for us. We were meant to be getting married on 6th October, 2016, however due to Hurricane Matthew we had to bring the date forward by one day. This caused a little bit of panic on our part as we had to reschedule our catering and a few other bits and bobs. I sent Bob an email regarding our situation and he immediately made me, and my soon to be wife, feel at ease, saying that it would be no problem and that he can organise the catering for a day earlier. What's even more impressive is that I sent him this message on the 4th October and we wanted his services for the next day! When Bob arrived you couldn't have met a more polite and happy man. He arrived himself and took 20 minutes or so to set all the food out in our villa and during this time recommended a few different meals we could try with the available food. As you can see from the pictures I have uploaded, the quality of the food Bob produced was second to none. Bob also provided us with cutlery, serving plates and cups. Food was cooked perfectly, tasted fantastic and easily catered for 28 people. All our guests were speaking so highly of Bob for his quality of service and food. By the end of the night we still had enough left overs to do us for a few days afterwards too, which in all honesty everyone was delighted with! We genuinely had the best day of our lives and Bob played a significant part in that. I cannot recommend Bob highly enough as he done an incredible job. If you are to wish for any sort of catering services then he is your man- 100%! Derek & Nikki Paterson, Scotland

We had our wedding catered by Louie's Bistro and everything turned out amazingly! The food was exquisite, and the service was excellent. The chef went over everything before the wedding so we knew exactly what to expect. Our guests had a real treat and everyone one was amazed at the quality of the food and the variety of the menu. Totally recommend his services.

This company FNH came to do a corporate lunch catering at our office two weeks ago. They did a Taco buffet, very professional with cooks, professional set up, fun margarita maker, and the food was phenomenal. Come to find out now they are coming every month to cater our office on the last Tuesday of the month for our monthly Taco Tuesday get together for all the co-workers. I might try their meal delivery service as the reviews here are awesome. I will be sure to update my review once I try their meal delivery service.

Chef Ricarya catered my wedding this past year. Her and her staff did an exceptional job from providing bartending, which all of our guests absolutely loved Kevi! To the passed hors d'oeuvres her staff kept floating around the reception hall to keep our hungry guests at bay while we wrapped up photos. The dinner buffet, OMG! To die for! Her staff was clean and professional and wore matching bowties & formal wear to compliment our wedding colors. Ricarya took care of us from our initial tasting with our family, all the way to our wedding day and even sent us a gift after to thank us for choosing her on our special day. Thank you again Ricarya, we will continue to refer you to everyone we come across!! ~Paula & Eric

Food was excellent!! Very respectful and clean. He is by far the best private cook I have hired and I've had many I will be hiring every week due to the fact that he brings a 5 star restaurant to your house.

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.

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.

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 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.
