We hired DelishNOLA Catering for a bachelorette party and we could not be more pleased! We were from out of town so I appreciated her constant communication leading up to the event. They showed great professionalism the day of the event and the food was delicious. There happened to be a parade the day of our event and Delish called early and arranged to get there super early to avoid traffic and be on time! I thought this was a great way to start off our evening. They arrived early, got the house prepared, and let us head out to catch some of the parade. We came back and everything was done and ready to be served. We were all very pleased and enjoyed our time w/ them. I would highly recommend this company for any event!

Chef Cody did a wonderful job catering our "dinner in" night for our girl's weekend Bachelorette party. Dinner was not only DELICIOUS but he handled our wild group in the kitchen as he finalized the meal! That deserves a big pat on the back alone! Thanks Chef Cody for helping us end our weekend on a TASTY note!

It was only in March that we decided to marry in June 2018, and we decided on a small wedding of 60-75 people. And the very first detail that I wanted to take care of was food. I googled "caterer for small wedding in New Orleans" and miraculously, on Thumbtack, Gerard Maras's name came up - there were other names, but in reading about Chef Maras's life in the cooking world, I instinctively knew he was the one. I responded to his message inviting me to contact him. He quickly responded and once I spoke to him, I knew he was the best choice for me. He was interested in finding out about my vision for our wedding, and in listening to my thoughts and ideas about what I thought I might want, over the next few weeks he presented me with pictures of food possibilities and ideas. He was so helpful in discussing each dish with me, and soon came up with a finished menu for a wonderful wedding feast with delicious, unusual and beautiful food. A wedding with all the details to figure out can be very stressful, especially on short notice, but Gerard Maras exudes a sense of calm, confidence and professionalism that made everything for our wedding smooth and easy. The food was wonderful, especially his freshly made pasta with a crawfish sauce, and his food was the hot topic at our wedding. All of our family and friends are still talking about having had the best food they ever had at a wedding. He has a unique talent in not only being a wonderful chef, but knowing what foods are complimentary to each other, and presenting food beautifully, and using only the best seasonal, highest quality and fresh food. He is a real artist in that he makes everything seem effortless, but what he does requires the greatest talent and skill. Thank you Gerard, for making our wedding a truly memorable event - not just for Joe and I, but for all of our family and dear friends.

My experience with Food Art was top notch. Stephanie sent me a prospective with everything I asked for, the only one who did, actually. The food was delicious and everything was set up beautifully. I received several compliments on the diversity & taste of the food. If I ever need any catering again, I will definitely use Food Art.

Chef Derrick is a lifesaver; with only a few hours notice he produced over 100 boxed lunches for our biannual safety meeting. We are considering having him cater our meetings exclusively. He even has a Food Truck which we may opt for next time around..

About

I was born and raised in New Orleans in a family of six kids, so I really had to learn how to cook at an early age. Between my mother, who worked at Copelands and my grandmother, I learned how to cook almost everything Louisiana and Mississippi had to offer and a lot of items straight out of the garden. I just love to cook and watch people wet and admire my work

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.
