We used GHI for our wedding catering, bar tender, and DJ services and I can't say enough positive things about them. Communication with Angie, Vince and Courtney was all fantastic. They were super helpful from planning the menu to coordinating the timeline of the day and when/where to set everything up. The food was absolutely amazing!! I've had so many compliments on all of the food (in particular - everyone LOVED the brie squash casserole)! We also had a ton of people tell us how great the bartender was; he was keeping everyone entertained at the bar and made sure our parents drinks never emptied. The only thing I would say they could improve on is with the DJ. We choose to add the DJ package; but seemed to have a few misunderstandings which meant we were trying to solve a few problems last minute. I also had a few people tell us he made a few rude comments at some point because he misunderstood when the reception was planned to end. Overall, He did great playing music everyone liked; but communication before hand could've cleared up those few issues. I highly recommend using GHI for catering!

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!)

David Fire provided excellent bartending services for our party of more than 50 guests. His special recipes and friendliness were a hit with our crowd. Fire's communication and coordination prior to the event were excellent as well. We would not hesitate to retain his comprehensive services (professional bar, set up, promptness, etc.) again.

Kim and her crew did an outstanding job at our daughter's wedding, which included bar service and wait staff professionals for 200+ guests. Her attention to detail and expert advice during the planning of the event, and flexibility to offer and add additional staff as the estimated guest count grew, made my life much simpler and reduced stress in planning for at least one aspect of the wedding & reception. Her crew arrived early and took charge, allowing me to focus my time and energies elsewhere; knowing that the bar service was in great hands. Service was excellent, fast, and guests I spoke to were complimentary as to the quality of their drinks. Our event included beer on tap, 5 - 6 wine variations, liquor / mixed drinks, an extensive selection of premium bourbons, and 2 special cocktails requested by the bride and groom. Kim's significant experience enabled her to handle logistics challenges, as well as unruly guests, allowed me to just enjoy the evening. I would strongly recommend Kim for your party, wedding, etc. I will definitely be a repeat customer, when the need arises for bar tending services.

Kendra and her staff were absolutely AMAZING! They catered a full-service event for me and the food as well as service were top notch. Her and the staff arrived on time and were extremely professional and helpful. The guests commented on how nice everything was and the food was gone without a thing to spare. I would certainly use her catering service and recommend them to anyone looking to host an event whether it be big or small. If you're looking for great food, and awesome people, you definitely have to look no further. EXCELLENT!!!

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.

Good morning Dwight- How are you? Hopefully you are doing well today. I just wanted to send a quick note to say Thanks for providing the best bar tending services ever at my wedding reception on Sunday! My friends and family said you were awesome and the drinks were the BOMB.com! I wanted to try all three, especially your signature drink-the Bob Marley, but didn't get the opportunity with everything going on; however, I do hope to in the near future. (lol) Your service was outstanding and you will definitely be recommended to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again for making our day so very special and providing great drinks and service! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me anytime. Best Regards, P. Porter

Nicole was so easy to work with. She did whatever she could to make the day easier, and I never once worried about our bar. She picked up all of the soda/alcohol the week of the wedding, so that was one less thing I had to worry about on the day-of. I'd recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding!

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.
