It was very easy setting up our food truck catering event. The payment process was smooth, the menu customization was excellent, and the entire event was low stress. The truck arrived early, set up was quick and efficient, service to my employees was fast and friendly, plus the food was delicious! I would recommend Gotta Have It to anyone!

We recently lost my mother-in-law's husband and I offered to help by hiring the catering service for the memorial service to be hosted at my MIL's house. After a short search online I came across Thumbtack and quickly after I received a quote from The Bountiful Basket. After reviewing a few other catering companies, I decided to go with them based on previous reviews and a first call I had with Mike where he put me at ease letting me know everything was going to be taken care of. Mike and Ellen were exceptional! They were able to respond to our needs by delivering great buffet-style catering during our memorial service. Ellen, our server, was very professional and took care of everything. It was such a relief to be able to count with great level of professionalism during such a difficult time. In addition, many guests mentioned the great quality of the food and service. My mother-in-law was very pleased and thankful! I would highly recommend The Bountiful Basket Catering!

We hired Kelsey for my mom's birthday and she was awesome! She was flexible and customized a menu for us. Kelsey was very professional:showed up on time, was quick with responses to any questions we had before we hired her and is an all around great person to work with. The food was delicious! We had clams in Thai curry sauce for apps, red wine braised beef short ribs that melted in your mouth with sesame green beans and a salted caramel creme brûlée to finish! I highly recommend her for your personal chef experience.

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 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.

Love Chef Coach!!! He was excited about my menu which made me more enthusiastic. The food tasted clean. Everything was delicious!! He came and stayed. He didn’t just drop the food off. He made sure that everyone tasted the quality of his work and he wanted to make sure nobody got cold food. At my event, my food selection were small plate style. It was amazing. Everyone was still talking about him after he left. Can’t wait to use him at my next event.

Chef Terrie catered our Tailgate event for the Falcons Vs Saints game on January 3rd of this year and she did a fantastic job! We asked for New Orleans cuisine with drop off service and she arrived timely to ensure our guest had hot food readily available at 10AM as discussed and she set up as well. The presentation was outstanding and we had more than enough food for our clients! We are a transportation company who specialize in being on time and providing great service, A Dream Comes True Catering met our expectations!

Chef Latanya and her staff was very nice, professional, and thorough with helping to make my 42nd Birthday Celebration a Success within a very limited timeframe for an extra cost of course but it was well worth every penny I spent and some. My soul food cuisine was TRULY DELICIOUS and most importantly NUTRITIOUSLY prepared with a ZESTY taste. All of my guests at the party enjoyed my Birthday Celebration and they really was most impressed with the food that Diva's Touch Catering prepared. I would definitely refer and use Diva's Touch Catering services again for all of my catering services' needs!

Chef Jarvis' food was delicious, but we also appreciated his thoughtfulness about the menu and dietary restrictions for the folks participating in our retreat. Often when you focus on healthy, the thinking is that flavor suffers, but Jarvis delivered food that was tasty and good for you like Avocado toast and home fries with chickpeas. With Chef Jarvis, you get a gourmet palette with a nod to Southern cuisine and an appreciation for organic, healthy and delicious. He exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend you taste what he's cooking.

    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.
