I have been to several events catered by My Chef Catering and found both their food and presentation to be superb. I have since hired Steven to prepare food for an event and it garnered rave reviews from guests. Steve is easy to work with and I would highly recommend his services.

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

just wanted to thank you and everyone at A Taste Of Harlem Catering services for making my birthday such a special and memorable event. Shamyra have made this whole process so effortless and I appreciate how you worked with me on the cost and keeping it a beautiful event. From the very beginning, I felt very comfortable working with you and knew you had everything in control. In addition, I'm a perfectionist myself so it was great to be able to rely on you and your team and not have to worry about anything. It was more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined and I just wanted to thank you so much. We received so many complements on the food and I told everyone about A Taste of Harlem Catering and how amazing you and your team are. Thank you so much. If I ever have another event I will definitely rehire Shamyra !!!!!! 😊

I have used Terri and her Food Fairies for 5 years or more. She and her team always provide incredibly delicious food at an incredible price. I throw components at her like tight schedule, and needing all local and organic food, with mostly vegetarian and vegan thrown in to boot, and with energy and positive enthusiasm she delivers. She provides recipes after the fact (and the groups she caters for me almost always want them -- even the carnivores in the group find themselves asking for the vegie recipes), and has worked in difficult conditions, such as kitchens without all the nice amenities, with the results still being stellar.

    Charlene asked that I place a review on her Thumbtack – where do I begin. I have worked with Char’s Catering for several of my events. My first encounter was a wedding in 2012. I was allowed to join the bride and groom for their taste testing and the food was outstanding. Nothing was too salty or over/under cooked. We had baked tilapia – delicious. Our next encounter was for a retirement celebration in Reidsville in 2013. Yes she travels. Again the food was absolutely delicious and her staff was awesome as well. I remember the salad being the bomb! I love salads and it just stood out. I’m not sure if it was the dressing or the freshness of the salad itself. Then she catered for a fund raising event in October 2015 for me. The food was incredible, even a guest caterer asked who she was. Her staff were efficient and very helpful. Our most recent taste testing was in April 2016 for an upcoming event in October. Boy, the food was once again outstanding and prepared differently. She also offered desserts. Our client had a field day with the desserts. She has a glowing personality and is very personable and professional. She is organized and timely which is a must in this industry. She is neat, clean and works hard to please her clients. I’ve seen her in action and been a client of hers. When selecting a caterer, I think about what event I’m doing and if that caterer can meet the theme of the event and prepare & present good tasting food for the guests. Char’s catering can do this, she meets the clients requests. She is my go to caterer. She comes highly recommended.

            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.
