Chef Robert and his crew were amazing! They went above and beyond what I imagined for my wedding. It was on 10.16.10 in Las Vegas, a perfect day! Elite catering had all the tables and linens with place settings the day before our reception and flowers ready in the fridge to be place the next day. The food was amazing, and there was plenty of it. More than enough for anyone who wanted a second helping. The staff was wonderful, they really treated us like we were apart of their family! They made our day so special. They were laughing and even danced with us! It was great! They made sure everything was perfect and clean and neat, I couldn't of asked for a better chef, decorator and staff to cater my wedding. Thank you chef and to everyone! The Claborns.

I am the MOH for my best friend’s upcoming wedding and hosted a bachelorette weekend with a group of friends. We rented a vacation home and wanted something to make the experience even more unique. I explained all of that to Chef Pierre, discussed my budget, and gave him an overview of the group of ladies. He used all the information I provided to set an amazing weekend meal line-up for us. We got to pick from customized menus beforehand, he was extremely professional, yet fun, prepared well and made delicious meals for us that everyone enjoyed! He even made a separate dish to accomodate one person’s food restrictions. The entire group was pleased with his detail and desire to go beyond the call of duty, including our bride to be. I would absolutely recommend him for events and will call again for my own future events!

We couldn't decide what restaurant to go to for our 21st wedding anniversary and suddenly realized that the best atmosphere is right in our own backyard where we have a covered patio with lights, speakers and table. We contacted Chef Kas and our phone call was returned promptly. We had an amazing evening, everything was perfect and we both have said that we probably will never go out to an expensive restaurant again when we can have it here at home. Chef Shaun and Asst. Chef Oscar arrived on time and went right to work in our kitchen. They served the courses to the outside area and we felt like we were in our own private restaurant. The quality of the food was excellent as was the presentation. The Filet Mignon was superb, tender and cooked to our liking. They even brought out our desserts with candles and wished us a happy anniversary. I especially loved that they cleaned our kitchen, put away the left overs in the fridge for us and when they left our kitchen looked as good as it was before they arrived. We will definitely use their service again. Thanks for making such a memorable evening for us.

Roxanne was wonderful! Initial planning emails: Wonderful and friendly! Roxanne was so good at reassuring me and guiding me. I had no idea what I needed, and she helped me decide on what would fit my small reception best. Payment: I totally messed up my method of payment and made Roxanne have to wait past the final deadline for her money. She was so patient and gracious about it. We checked in with each other via email until the issue was resolved. Day of: Roxanne let me know what information she needed to properly deliver the food and supplies several days before my event. She was on time, prompt with set up, gave a clear explanation of what went with what. She gave me a much-needed hug before the wedding started. Food: Every single thing was delicious. We had Caprese salad cups, Veggie eggrolls, Stuffed mushrooms, Olive bread, and Shrimp cocktail. I originally asked for enough for 35, but then asked if I ought to over order for 40 just in case. She was very reassuring and promised there would be enough for 40. All my guests very honestly told me they loved the food and that they thought it was a good amount for such a short gathering of about 2.5 hours. The Olive bread really was excellent, and the Caprese salad cups were super tasty! The egg rolls disappeared quickly! Presentation and set up: As promised, the chaffing dishes kept the food just right. Even the stuffed mushrooms which would have been ideally been kept warm in the oven were perfectly fine in the chaffing dish. We had to add some extra ice to the shrimp, but that was literally the only thing we had to attend to. Everything else was set up properly. Plenty of utensils, plates, napkins, serving spoons, etc. Clean up was a breeze. Everything left behind was disposable. Price: I will be honest, I have no idea what catering costs. I've never catered anything before that didn't involve the words "sub sandwich tray." But Roxanne had the kinds of food and service we wanted for the price we were willing to pay. So I have no complaints. :D Overall: Though I don't anticipate having another event that needs catering, I would absolutely use Say Goodnight Gracie catering again! And I would recommend her to any friend who needed catering, large or small.

We had a backyard wedding and everything with Wil the Taco Guy was perfect! While planning the wedding he was always quick to respond and accommodate last minute changes. We ordered tables and chairs from him as well and he delivered and picked them up for us. Wil was the nicest guy and made catering the wedding one of the easiest parts! Everyone loved the food! We would hire him again in an instant!

Our wedding was so lovely and we couldn't be more than happier. We had a reception in our backyard and we hired them for being an assistant of the day of our wedding. Cynthia and Dallas are very nice and friendly; and also good with communication via phone, emails and texts. They are very responsive to the clients and gave us many advices in our wedding. We would like to thank you very much for everything. Decorations (tables, lights, and cake set up) were beautiful; Food, photographers, bartender, server, and everything ran smoothly and perfectly. Not only us, but our guests are also enjoy our wedding. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator/planner for your wedding or the day of wedding, I recommend Affairs to Remember Weddings and Special Events and you would not be disappointed. Thank you both of you again. Janey and Bob Cunningham ❤

I met Chef Dan at an event for my company and was so impressed with the taste and presentation of his food that I hired him to cater my 160 people backyard wedding. He spent time meeting us at the rental company, came over to discuss our needs several times and made us so comfortable that we knew we were in good hands. He catered the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. Everything was beautiful, he and his associates do a wonderful presentation. The food was out of this world! I have recommended him to our neighbors who plan to use our back yard for their wedding next May. I would use him again and recommend him to everyone!

    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.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    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 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
