Lauren and her team were amazing. I hosted a party for 37 in our loft space and from the planning to the execution the event was flawless. Lauren is experienced enough to be extremely accommodating while offering a wealth of experience and suggestions when needed. She followed up on all the details throughout the planning period and when the night arrived everything was exactly as promised. Her team was helpful, friendly, and professional. They were a pleasure to work with. Lauren and the bartender even created a special drink for the occasion that was the perfect accompaniment. Several guests asked for Lauren's information and everyone raved about the food. I recommend Bacco Catering without hesitation.

We hired Tamara and her team for a 15 person dinner party. I wanted light bites so everyone would be able to eat as they wanted and mingle while enjoying their food. They met every one of my expectations. Tamara with Amoraco catering was so easy to work with. She was timely, responsive, and very flexible in creating the perfect menu for my dinner party. We were lucky enough to have chef Mona cook for us. Mona was so friendly and took care of everything so I did not have to worry about a single thing but enjoying the food and my guests. The food was outstanding-everything she cooked was perfect. We had 15 people and everyone commented on how awesome Mona was and how amazing the food was. Can not recommend Amoraco Catering enough! Will definitely be using them again.

We had a small wedding celebration catered by DeCicco and Sons and it was a great experience from beginning to end. From the first text I received with a quote it was clear that they are incredibly professional and easy to communicate with. On top of the great customer service the food was very delicious and everyone raved about the taste and how well they accommodated for dietary restrictions. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and am so happy we found them through thumbtack.

We had a party for my wife's birthday at the house for 40 people and could not have been more pleased with Adolfo Silverio and Manjar Catering. Both the food and the service were first class. Adolfo worked with us on the menu and layout for the party and everything went off without a hitch. People were raving about the food from the duck crepes to the quesadillas and the service including set-up, passing service, and clean-up were executed flawlessly. T.G. - Stamford

We loved the services and food catered by Kulinary Kings. They catered food for our 125 guest consisting of a variety of backyard BBQ foods. Our guest loved the roasted corn, the salmon pasta salad and the macaroni and cheese and chicken and beef skewers to name a few. Even more than the food, the service was great- we also requested servers and a bar tender and I must say all were on point and attentive to our guest. I would recommend This cater and will definitely use him again!

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

Chef Rob and his crew catered a suprise birthday dinner for me and all i can say is the service and my oh my the food was just soooooo good. Word's cannot explain it. And you get a lot of food for your money. He made cocktail shrimp as one of the appetizers and the shrimp used was the jumbo size shrimp. Who does that this days..just chef Rob.

I haven't had a better experience working with a caterer than I had when working with Frecklez catering. Ativa Rembert really worked hard with us in creating a menu and putting together food options for a holiday party and was willing do whatever it took to make our dreams a reality. She was open to any suggestions we had and was especially great in working with our budget. From first contact it was clear just how passionate she is about her work and she's definitely a pleasure to work with! I now know the first person I'll consider for my next event/occasion!

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.
