Jen catered our daughters wedding reception on 10/10/15, which was at a home in a large commercial tent. She was fantastic from beginning to end! She kept me calm (mother-of-the-bride crazies) and was personable and professional. The food was fantastic and plenty of it! Everything was cleaned up and spotless after the reception. If there were 10 stars, I would have given her a 10.

Sara , Daniel and Richard came into our home and we turned our kitchen over to them. By the end of the evening party, they felt like family to us! The food was amazing and the presentation was visually beautiful! Our guests sent us notes afterwards praising the food and caterers!! They were GREAT!!

For more than 15 years I have been involved in fundraising. I have worked with dozens of caterers over these many years and I can confidently say that Cristo's Kitchen and Catering is the best that I have worked with. Outstanding service, detail oriented, professional, delicious food, honest and a great guy. Highly recommended and I look forward to working with them again.

I was extremely lucky to randomly find Daniel on Thumbtack. I was planning a big birthday party August 5 and wanted to enjoy my party instead of being exhausted. Daniel took care of everything from tables, chairs, tablecloths, bartender, the waitresses and of course the food. He is a very very calm person and everything went marticulous and a great time was had by all. Excellent food and desserts served In time and very professional in the service and cleaning. I recommend him highly and would use hI'm again for another carefree party. Nishat Siddiqi

A fantastic five-course meal for me and my guests. Hosted in the chef's home, we were able to learn about each course, the ingredients and preparation. Crème brulee was outstanding and prepared at the table. In between courses, we examined some older kitchen implements in the chef's kitchen and enjoyed reminiscing about our mothers' and grandmothers' kitchens. Meat was cooked exactly to personal specifications and everything was delicious. This is an experience not to be missed!

John and his team were very professional!! They performed duties beyond their scope because my event planner wasn't doing her job. They all-in-all were instrumental at making sure my guests, myself and husband were well taken care of, from bringing water and a platter of food out to us when pictures were being taken, communicating with our DJ in a professional manner which in turn prompted my DJ to make a public announcement on how spectacular J & L Catering was. If I hadn't mentioned, the food was fantastic. I had great reviews from my family and friends for days/weeks. I would whole heartedly recommend John of J & L Caterers for all weddings.

Really can't ask for more from William and his team. We've had them for a few events - a summer party last year and a couple cocktail events at our home this winter. Great food, and super easy to work with. All-around, much higher quality than other caterers we've hired in the past.

I was given several options for my son's graduation party based on the budget I had and the number of people I expected. All of the baked entrees were very tasty.Everyone in attendance thought I had ordered from a favorite local Italian restaurant we all like to frequent. The cheese and cracker tray also saved me a lot of time. I supplemented with my own large tossed salad and some of my own desserts. The food was delivered hot and ready to serve with heating trays and burners. There is enough to do at a party so it was a relief to have the main course taken care of. Leftovers for the family the next day are also nice to have when you are tired after a party so order accordingly. Cleanup is a breeze when you have throw away aluminum trays. I highly recommend this service as I have used other caterers and will use Malone Catering again based on this experience.

I am so glad that I found Chef Michael Haigh to do the catering for my birthday party. He did not disappoint in any way. From beginning to end Michael was a pleasure to work with, very flexible and professional in arranging for the best menu for the birthday meal, and then in delivering on the delicious meal.

Aipyn Catering was the first to respond to my inquiry for a caterer. I received a full brunch menu, with something for everyone, right within my budget and didn't need to change a thing. Shamia was very easy to work with. I needed to change the number of people close to the event and it was not a problem. The day went great, the food was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. I would highly recommend this caterer and would definitely call them again for any future events.

I have used Buffets Inc for at least 8 years and would not use anyone else! The food is made fresh each day, the prices are reasonable, this is a family owned business and they are great to work with. I first met Mark when he was volunteering his services for a non-profit I was involved with and was impressed with him personally and professionally. I have used Buffets Inc for small meetings to large clam bakes. If I am serving lunch at a meeting the attendees will often ask if Mark is catering because they remember his food and desserts! I can't say enough good things about Buffets Inc!

There's not enough space or time to explain how pleased we were with our pig roast. Thyme and Tide was very professional. The food was phenomenal. Everything was fresh. There was no hidden costs. Price was Fair. We even had leftovers! This guy knows food and he left no mess behind. He'll be back at our house again for many years to come.

Kendra catered a 50th birthday dinner for 80 people. Her food was outstanding, beautifully presented, and absolutely fresh and delicious. Her attention to detail was noticed by all my guests who immediately took her card! The beautifully presentation means as much to Kendra as how delicious her food is. I highly recommend Kendra and her staff for all your catering needs!

We first saw their catering services with very competitive pricing, we decided to pay the restaurant a visit. The interior is very well done and the food qualify is very good. We got in touch and proceeded to book them for our baby's welcoming party. The Thumb Tack online response is quick, we also got in touch with the owner. We changed the menu and selection three times and they provided confirmation and delivered on-time. Will hire again and will probably dine there. Highly recommend.

Cindy was very easy to communicate with when arranging for a bar-tender to serve drinks at our 60 person function. The bar-tender she provided was excellent and everything went perfectly - I'd definitely use Catering for You again.

      We worked with Kris from Harding Catering for our company's open house. He was extremely communicative, arrived early, and our customers and friends had many excellent comments on the food. Presentation and quality obviously mean a lot to this company. Thank you for making our event of about 100 people nearly effortless!

      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.
