Chef Michael was flexible and accommodating. We requested a taco bar to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the food he prepared tasted authentic and delicious!

Darlene with Oceanique was an absolute delight to work with. I submitted a request for catering for my grandmothers memorial service (just 4 days away from my inquiry). Darlene responded within minutes with pricing and even a menu (I forgot to mention that I sent my inquiry after 11pm and she still responded within minutes)! She made such a difficult time very easy. She offered a private tasting in our home and customized the menu to our needs. I would definitely recommend her and will use her again!

We had Sooo Good Catered Creations cater our daughter's graduation party. We could not have been more pleased. Angelique the owner of the complany is extremely sweet and yet so professional. Her food is amazing too. Everyone at the party raved about the service and the meal. Angelique and an assistant were extremely helpful and attentive through out the main hours of the party which allowed me time to be visit with the guests and enjoy the meal too. I highly recommend her company for any event that caterers are needed. We will for sure be using her company again for our youngest daughter's grad party in the near future. J.

Aside from the amazing flavors and variety of foods she cooks, her service is excellent in that she is very attentive to our nutrition requirements, on follow up and feedback. Nicole will cook whatever it is you desire with passion and love. She is a joy to have around, and her professionalism is top notch. My family looks forward to our meals each week!

We had a dinner party for fifteen in our home out in the country. Everyone complimented us on the meal that Chef Tammy prepared for us (including the appetizers)! I was amazed at how well prepared and efficient she was. Everyone's meat was served to their liking and at the same time. The risotto and lava cake were big hits and almost every plate that returned to the kitchen was empty. She cleaned everything and left the kitchen spotless. I would highly recommend her.

We gave my daughter a surprise 40th birthday celebration on August 20th and Chef Gigi was recommended by a friend who had went to an affair that she catered. I instantly connected with her and was very impressed with her beautiful spirit and professionalism. My event turned out wonderfully and her visual presentation of the food was awesome. It not only looked beautiful but tasted amazing. I would recommend Chef Gigi to anyone who is looking to take their event to a much higher level. She is hands down one of the best caterers that I have ever worked with and I have worked with many.

Buscemi’s catering offers a variety of options for any social gathering or celebration. It’s a family run business with local ties in the community. The panzerotti concept is innovational and adds flare to street food trucks. Definitely my choice for anytime delivery just won’t do👍

I am convinced that Harriette can make any cultural dish---Thai, Greek, Soul Food. If you name it, she can prepare it and she does it all with excellence. She enjoys pleasing her customer and will go the extra mile to make sure your taste buds, heart, and soul have a great experience. Harriette is also an excellent baker--pies, cakes, and delicious sweet foods are included in her repertoire. Many cooks specialize in making certain types of dishes. I would venture to say tha Harriette is an all-around chef. Highly recommend!

Jeff was a pleasure to work with. He showed up on time, with everything I had asked for, and the food was delicious. The best items were the ones he had specifically recommended, so I would advise you to be guided by his advice. I thought the pricing was extremely reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food. Thanks, Jeff!

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.
