Chef Tony is amazing! He created the perfect menu and fabulous dining experience for my parents' 60th wedding anniversary and he even personalized their dessert! The food was sensational from presentation to every last morsel devoured. Superb seasoning in every course complimented by his perfect wine pairings. We will be seeing much more of Chef Tony. A truly fantastic evening!

Shannon and Casey at Hog Day BBQ were the perfect catering company for our wedding of about 100 people. Shannon was willing to work with us as we navigated questions about the menu and our head count - and everyone RAVED about how delicious it all was. We were so pleased with the quality and the prices. We had 2 meats and 5 vegetarian sides and Shannon even made a strawberry shortcake for our dessert that was perfect. We would highly recommend Hog Day for your BBQ needs. IN fact - we are going to throw another party JUST so we can hire them again! THANK YOU!

Anton was so wonderful to us during the whole process. From the first phone call, picking our buffett menu and pricing. We had a set per person price and he quoted us under it. We had impeccable service at our wedding reception. His staff treated my husband an I like a king and queen. Now to the food. The best I can come up with is amazingly awesome. Everything was way beyond my expectations. Every guest personally came to us remarking how superb the food was. I highly recommend Feast Caterers for any event you may need a caterer for. I look forward to planning another event with Chef Anton.

They are beyond Outstanding!!! I wish there were more Stars to rate them with because 5 just aren't enough. Their customer service is the best I've seen. From our very first conversation to the end of our party we couldn't be happier with how every single detail was handled. All of our guests raved about the food. Every 5 minutes someone was coming up to me saying how great our caterer is. Even the old Italian ladies at our party were saying how delicious and homemade everything tasted and if you know any old Italian ladies that's almost impossible. We will definitely use them again and recommend them too.

Allison recently prepared a multi-course dinner for 11 at my home, her husband Chris was our server. From the appetizers through dessert, each of the dishes was delicious and the presentation was perfect. Aside from being highly skilled at their craft, Allison and Chris are a pleasure to be around. Our guests had a wonderful evening and I would recommend their services without hesitation.

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.

Tanya catered a Christmas gathering at our home for 10 adults + kids with appetizers, buffet dinner and dessert. We had hired a chef the previous year and didn't have a great experience...this year however our guests RAVED about the food! Tanya was professional, brought all of her own equipment to cook and serve, and she and her assistant left my kitchen in great shape. She was easy to work with in the planning stages, promptly responded to calls and e-mails and sent me an extensive menu of choices for course selections which she modified as needed. The night was relaxed and at the end my guests commented that they really couldn't remember what was served the previous year, but the food was delicious this year! There were plenty of leftovers to be enjoyed as well. I would not hesitate to hire her again!

Linda and her assistant did a fantastic job with a baby shower brunch for us. They took care of everything, offered valuable menu advice, cooked omelets onsite, served guests, and cleaned up unobtrusively. There were numerous compliments on the delicious food! I would definitely recommend Linda and hope to engage her again.

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.
