All around fantastic job by Junior and his team. So many people at the party were impressed with the catering and bartending enough that I had 6 people tell me they were going to hire Kitchen's Portal for their next event. All of the food was amazing, the signature cocktail was fantastic, the presentation of the whole thing tied together was just fantastic. Not only was the whole team extremely polite and professional, they were all good people. We enjoyed hanging out with the Portal crew as much as anyone else at the party. I would highly recommend hiring Junior if you need a bartender, a caterer, or both. These guys saved me so much time from having to rent the actual bar, the tub, the coolers, etc which not only saved money, but more importantly saved time. When you're trying to get stuff done for a 40 person party the day ofm, it's nice to have someone else deal with a smuch as possible. I will definitely try to get these guys back for the next event we have

We hired Spice House Catering for a dinner for 12 golfers celebrating the end of a 5 day golf trip. I exchanged a few emails with Dameon leading up to the trip where we selected the menu and I informed him of the dining restrictions of a couple of the guys. Dameon and his team were very prompt, prepared a spectacular meal and even ran out and picked a few items (ice, beer, etc.) that we had run out of before the meal. We couldn't have been happier with the entire evening and would definitely use him again!

I surprised my wife for our 17th wedding anniversary in early July and invite Chef Paola to our home. She arrived with everything she needed to cook including plates! We sat at high top table I had placed near our fireplace and Paola serviced seven Italian courses over a two hour period. Each dish was terrific and large portions (we ended up with food for the next two days). after she finished she washed up everything also! We strongly recommend her for a private dinner like we had or a catering event. Thank you again!

From the moment of the first contact to the day of the event for my mother's 70th Birthday Celebration, I experienced excellent quality from Chef Jean and his Team of Gourmet Crepes Cafe and Catering. The presentation of the food, the taste of the entrees and the professionalism of the staff was amazing. We had attendees ranging from Judges, Majors, City Commissioners and other professionals so it was very important to me that everything was on point. So, I can say Gourmet Crepes Cafe and Catering DELIVERED!! I will have them on speed dial for any other events that I am planning. You will not be disappointed!!

I'm Alex V. and I wanted to say that Big Al is the best caterer around. He catered my wedding and the food was GREAT! at a very good price. The layout display of food was very nice and professional. We had two kinds of meat and all the trimmings to go with it. The food was kept warm for seconds and plenty of cold drinks with ice provided by Al. After the wedding he cleaned up everything and the place we rented was left clean. I recommend Abundance Catering to everyone. Money well spent.

Libby did a Great job with the meals she prepared for me. It took about 3.5 hours from start to finish and she labeled the containers she stored the meals in. Libby cleaned up after she was finish cooking and left the kitchen the way she found it. I was very Happy with her service. The meals Libby prepared were tasty and well prepared to my liking, I would have enjoyed some veggies besides the side dish she prepared for each meal. Not sure what else to add, because this was my first time with Libby.

Just hired Char-Don for our high school youth rally dinner. Event is next week. I'm guessing he'll knock it out of the park. Wish there were a way to add a review afterwards.

          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.
