Allison has worked with me on many occasions teaching me the necessary tools to become a good cook. I felt very comfortable learning even the most basic skill such as using a knife properly, making simple and some not so simple sauces and also learning to put a menu together for a dinner party. I can say she is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and very talented. She really makes cooking, and creating delicious masterpieces look so easy. I've used Allison as a caterer for many different occasions. It's amazing to watch her make gormet dishes with ease for crowds of 12 or 100. She was a professional from start to finish and left my house as clean as she found it. Thanks Allison, I'm more comfortable in the kitchen however, I'm still going to use you for when I really want to impress family and friends.

I worked with Chef Jim to have a week of dinners catered for my team when we were in Wilmington for a trial. I actually reached out to him for another team first, only to have our case settle at the last minute. With that said, Chef Jim was flexible and we just moved our menu to the next group arriving a few weeks later. He was great about tailoring the menu to my request for healthy but tasty and we didn't miss the fat in any of the dishes we tried (normally we work out of hotels and use their in-house caterers, which means lots of heavy food with LOTS of fat and calories). With Chef Jim, we got lots of spices and flavors but didn't feel weighted down at the end of the meal. Chef Jim was punctual in getting everything set up and then returning later to tear everything down. I will definitely reach out to him for another menu next time I have a team in Wilmington.

Jerry's Kitchen is a gem within the food truck world. Their menu is full of variety and I have never been disappointed by a dish! They have always been respectful about catering to dietary restrictions and food allergies. I have seen them at multiple food truck festivals and catering events and they have the fastest, most courteous service every time.

Tanya was wonderful. She was a consummate professional, her food was excellent, and the dinner party went so smoothly. We all had a lovely time. Tanya took care of everything. She was also very polite but on the quiet side, which was something I was looking for since the group I had over hadn't seen each other in a long time and we wanted to focus on each other (some chefs are the type that want to talk to you throughout dinner, which is fine for some, but I wanted to avoid). Highly recommend Tanya!

Tina and her girls catered my 45th Birthday got over 70 people. We have used other caterers in the past and I can say for certain that her food was by far the most delicious we ever had! Creespy pancetta with goat cheese, lasagna cups, shrimp tostadas, curry tarts, sweet potato sliders were just a few a my favorites. Not too mention herself and her staff were amazing. She truly made this Birthday Celebration one of the best parties we ever had! Thank you Tina!!!!

Our experience with D’Lish catering was excellent. From the first contact through menu planning and food quality we had a pleasure working with Deirdre and her team. She was working to make our birthday party memorable and the catering experience seamless. The food selection and quality was superb and we received a lot of compliments for both throughout the evening and after the event. We are already planning another event and will consider D’Lish as our first choice. Highly recommended!

Chaad and his team are truly amazing. Recently, I had a hip hop 80’s party, and each time I begin to feel stressed, Chaad and his team jumped in to make sure everything went smoothly as planned. Amongst all of the catering companies I’ve contacted, Ster Catering was the only one who provided samples of the foods I wanted served at my party. This is a huge plus and I wish other catering companies offered this option. On the day of my event, Chaad and his team arrived early. They assisted with decorating (which they did not have to do). They also provided great food and drinks which everyone loved. I highly recommend Ster Catering and I would definitely hire Chaad and his team for another event.

First off, the menu Chef Cathy put together for our international theme was perfectly balanced and diverse. The food was a hit with our guests! Working with Jersey Girl Cafe was easy and quick responses to every question. Very accommodating and I would be happy to hire them again. They were not late but not early either so if you start at 11:30 let them know you need them there by 11:15 at latest. Paper goods that came were included but don't count on it to cover your head count, buy separately.

      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.
