I can write a whole story about how great Wendy & Bill are.. They are truly Amazing , kind hearted , professional and again simply AMAZING... the food is to die for.. My now, husband and I, are very picky eaters , but we love comfort foods, so when I presented Wendy with the plan , I honestly didn't know it was going to be the best Food I ever ate. Honestly from the appetizers to the entrees , desserts and even the corn bread... it was just the most delicious food everrrrrr... All our guests at our wedding just raved at how delicious the food was. I'm an event designer and I am very meticulous , so choosing a great caterer was very important to me... and I can't tell you how honored it was to have chosen Wendy & Bill...everything was executed just as discussed ..and well beyond that. They surely went well above and beyond our expectations. Honestly we plan on having them be our preferred caterers for life... hands down the best!!! Look no further for your events...because they are truly the best... Highly recommended. Once I get any photos from our photographer I'll be sure to update..!

Everyone at our wedding RAVED about how amazing the food was. The presentation was perfect. Chris was incredible to work with. He was responsive and worked so hard to meet our every need (gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options). We couldn't of asked for a better price for what we got either! Everything was amazing.

I would highly recommend Little Miss Sophie's Catering services!! Jessica was amazing, as was her food. Our caterer pulled out 2 weeks before the wedding and Sue and Jessica jumped in and handled everything perfectly. The food was fantastic and Little Miss Sophie's saved the day (in many ways). Highly recommend!!! Thank you.

What an amazing experience! We celebrated my wife's birthday in Maine and had Tanya come down to make an incredible birthday dinner. Before we went up she was great about communicating and coming up with the perfect menu. The day of she came early to do the prep work and then we saw the magnificence! She thought of everything! The table was beautifully set, she helped us start a fire in the outdoor fire place, and she served with such grace and timing. She then cleaned everything! My wife and I love good food and eat out quite a bit so we were a little nervous about the food but we were so impressed with her cooking! Refined and incredibly balanced flavors. Her training and experience made for a great dinner but her attention to detail, personality, and elegance made for an amazing experience! We will definitely be having her come down to Boston for our next special occasion!

We had an Indian fusion wedding last weekend at an off-site venue, and Simply Elegant Catering did a fantastic job. We originally contacted SEC to provide full service catering and American style food, with the intent of having another restaurant provide Indian food. However, SEC’s chef offered to make the Indian food for our tasting, and it was delicious. As a result, SEC caterered both style menus. They also worked with us to develop a mostly vegetarian menu to meet the needs of the groom and many of our guests. A few of our guests actually commented that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Sam of SEC was very helpful and responsive, and his entire staff seemed eager to work with us to help make our event run smoothly and meet our wishes. And SEC’s services were very reasonably priced. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about SEC, and would recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food with friendly service.

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!

This food is simply the best. Rich, fresh, flavorful, and such a treat for the senses. Jourdan knows how to make delicious food from a wide variety of cultural cuisines! For our events she has made incredible dishes including Syrian fish, broiled lamb stew, spicy and savory meat samosas, Syrian rice, Mexican stuffed spaghetti squash, and a lovely fresh garden salad. We have ordered from her a couple times now and she is our new go-to for all catering needs!

I hired Nick's Place, for a retirement party. I can not say enough about their expertise in catering. They took care of everything for me. The food was fresh, delicious, and the presentation was excellent. I would highly recommend Nick's Place. Father and son reassured me everything would be perfect and it was.

    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.
