My experience with Gotta Have It was exceptional from beginning to end. Chef Marra gave me exactly what I asked for, which was Panamanian cuisine. The food was great and my guests were impressed. The staff provided for service were professional and on point. Chef Marra worked with me on every level during this process. I would definitely work with this catering company again and I also recommend them to anyone.

Nikki provided full service catering for our small birthday party (~12 adults). The food was very good, she covered all the bases, and is very personable. Several of our guests asked for her business cards, and we were thoroughly impressed with her professional and personal contributions to the evening. (She even went above and beyond to find the honoree's favorite birthday cake -- not on her menu!)

Sabrina was the "Ultimate Professional" in all aspects! The omelet station and customized options she created for our guests truly elevated our event to the next level. Not only was the food DELICIOUS but her winning personality made it a complete joy to work with her. I appreciate Sabrina's promptness, attention to detail, creativity, pre-event visit and suggestions, efficiency, and her positive interaction with all our guests! I have no doubt that we will leverage her services again when we have an event and I would wholeheartedly recommend the Good Fork Catering Company to anyone looking to make their event extra special!

We recently hired, Chef Kelsey to take on a job for 9 people serving an on-going meal delivery during SXSW. She explained everything in detail and communicated very well with myself as well as our clients/guests to our short term rental home. We could not have asked for better preparation and quality of service. She was punctual and very kind. Our clients LOVED their meals and wiped the dishes, clean! Thanks Chef. We'll be hiring you again soon.

I hadAllison and her team do full service catering for our Oktoberfest party this past Saturday for 60 people including kids! Everything was absolutely outstanding from the presentation to the food. She even made a special treat for the kids! People could not stop talking about how great the food was. Allison is very organized and so professional she came over to the house twice met with me made sure she knew where everything was so when party day came she didn't have to ask me anything. I will definitely be using her again for any future catering parties that we have.

Very Professional, Knowledgeable, On Time, Great layout of the food and I could go on and on! Daphne and her staff were on point! I wish there were more stars to give. Our event involved about 75-80 people. The price was very reasonable and her/staff was AMAZING! Going forward we are going to use her company for all of our catering events. Our company has a staff of 90 plus people. She even remember things that I forgot about. She made everything so easy. They were on time, they set everything up, came back and broke everything down. Would our company use her company again ABSOULTELY!!! In a word PERFECT!! On behalf of Butler Lexus we want to say THANK YOU!!

I found Daddy's Girl BBQ just searching for holiday catering companies on Google. I had an awesome experience ordering for our catered Thanksgiving Day Meal. Mrs. Darling was very personable, professional and the food was delicious! She was even able to assist me in providing last minute food items for a separate event-which was greatly appreciated and super accommodating of her amidst a busy holiday catering season. I will definitely be using her services going forward and would gladly recommend her to cater any events.

Heavenly Hawgs BBQ was selling some of their delicious food at an event that I attended. I tried their smoked pork and smoked chicken and it was very good. So was their Brunswick Stew and smoked mac & cheese. I asked the husband & wife team how could go about getting them to cater an event/party in the future and they told me they have a page on Facebook. So I liked their FB page on the spot and know where to turn when I want to host a get-together but leave the chore of cooking some superb eats to someone else. https://www.facebook.com/heavenlyhawgsbbq/

I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for finding Nicole Young. That is me taking the credit that is truly due to her. Nicole is responsive and easy to work with. She's flexible within reason to the needs of her customers and can provide a wide range of services. This week she prepared all the meals for my family including snacks for my picky toddler. Her meals are well portioned and delish! Her peanut butter bars, muffins, chicken and potatoes are to die for! I look forward to working with Nicole well into the future and recommending her to all my friends.

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.
