Chef Serge and Aaron are an exceptional team. Our Memorial Day grill / pool party was fueled by chef’s outstanding food, service, and conversation. I’m not sure we can have another large party without the expertise of Chef Serge! Highly recommend he and his team for your next outing. We are already planning ours. Many thanks for making memories for my family. Bring in Chef Serge to cater your food needs and just worry about having fun!

WOnderful experience overall. They worked with us to create the perfect menu for our event and even tailored a few items to meet our needs. Only negatives: ran out of plates, coffee, and coffee cups so we had to run out and get them. Overall - would definitely recommend.

Eleven Courses did a wonderful job catering our wedding on Friday. Jim came up with a delicious personalized vegan menu for us, and he always responded to emails quickly whenever I had questions. On the wedding day, Chrissy was our catering coordinator, and she made sure we had everything we needed all night. I was also impressed with how quickly their staff was able to flip the room during cocktail hour since we had our ceremony and reception in the same place. Thank you!

Chef Jackie catered a breakfast in our home the morning after our son's bar mitzvah. She delivered exactly as promised, honored our dietary restrictions, and our guests specifically commented on the many good quiches she made. The only note I would make is that for coffee service, she only needed to bring regular flavored coffee and regular milk/cream, which we could have advised on if asked.

I genuinely can’t say enough good things about this business. I hired AC Catering for two events I held in June and July 2017. Everything was excellent! I was beyond happy with everything from the food, to the services, to the people I interacted with during the planning phase and the actual events. This small, family owned business actually exceeded my expectations. They have an extensive menu to choose from which allowed me to tailor both events’ meals appropriately. The pricing was great and the amount of food I received was more than enough. AC Catering received many compliments for the quality of their food at both of my events. I took a risk and hired them without having tasted any of their food, but I have to say there was no need for worry. The food was also delicious! Both my guests and I enjoyed every bite. The serve and clean up service was also top notch. George Sullivan and his staff were extremely attentive to my needs during my banquet. They helped to ensure that the dinner ran smoothly, and cleanup was quick and efficient. I can't leave this review without noting that it was a great pleasure working with George Sullivan (principal owner/operator) when coordinating my needs. He was very responsive to the myriad of questions I had, extremely flexible as I proposed changes for my event, and just an extremely nice guy. I am so glad I found this business. I will definitely be using AC Catering if I have any catering needs in the future.

Thank you for making my holiday party a memorable event. You are an absolute joy to work with and your laughter is infectious. The gluten free menu that included Ruby Sippers cocktails, mushrooms stuffed with homemade Mexican chorizo, shrimp with horseradish remoulade, leek & goat cheese frittata, ginger bread cookies, and other mouthwatering fancy Hors d'oeuvres left the guests wondering if they were dining in a 5 star restaurant. Thank you again for accommodating to my food allergies concerns. Because of your professionalism and work ethic, you gave me peace of mind that everything was going to be perfect to include the home decor and setting-up the kitchen table with silver and white embellishments. Wow! It felt like a winter wonderland. I look forward to our next rendevu in the kitchen. Bests, "Girls Night Out Crew"

Soleia's catered a graduation party for us recently for about 50 people. They did a wonderful job from nuts to bolts, visiting our home beforehand to see where and how they would lay things out, bringing staff to assist in setup both with their food and equipment and our decorations. That was a welcome surprise. The food was delicious and we received a lot of compliments about the catering. The cake that she baked was wonderful and again many compliments. They went out of their way to make everyone happy and worked very hard while they were there. We ate leftovers for a week! They also arranged for a tent, tables and chairs because I wasn't sure about the weather and I had many people tell me it was a perfect event. Overall, they did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend them.

I've utilized Pearl and Da Girls Catering Service on several occasions such as barbecues, birthday parties, and more recently my dad's repast after his funeral. For every event, the service, the price, and the professionalism was superb!!! But most importantly...the food...oh the food...was absolutely without a shadow of a doubt AMAZING!!! Finger licking delicious!! I've had my fair share of soul food at places like Henry's, Levi's, and Keith and Sons...but Pearl and Da Girls is by far my favorite...hands down! They SLAY!!!

Creative Cuisine catered my mothers 60th Birthday party and I couldn't be happier with their performance. The food was so delicious that guests of the party kept stopping me to inquire about the chef. The owner of the company Deshawn was an absolute professional he created a wonderful menu, he provided a great tasting of the menu options, and he executed the menu flawlessly. I will definitely be using this catering company for all of my catering needs in the future.

Food was great--I didn't know that the Colada Shop catered, so that was a pleasant surprise. The price was right. I do wish that it came with wire racks/sternos. Also, we paid for utensils and plates but we didn't get any. The sales person said that she would credit that off the bill. I would definitely use the Colada Shop again.

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.
