Helen was professional and very pleasant! She stayed our entire reception to ensure that everyone was satisfied. I received compliments from several people about how delicious the food was. I will use Helen again for any catering services and recommend her to my friends and family. In addition to providing great food, Helen spent a lot of time talking to me about what I wanted, recommending food choices based on my needs, and double checking that we were in agreement before our event. Thank you Helen for your part in making my wedding reception a great memory!!!

We hired LjP's & Flutterbyes for an private engagement dinner for me and my fiancé. This was one of the most important nights of my life and I was so nervous! Laurajean and her wonderful chef attendant Robert made the most amazing meal. 5+ stars! Not only was the food delicious, they were professional and polite. They even made a special plate with "Will you marry me?" in icing with the ring box in the middle. My fiancé said yes and everyone was so impressed with the food. Don't look any further, LjP's is the way to go! Thank you for an awesome experience!

I had a 30th birthday party for my boyfriend and had Chris come over for the food! The food was phenomenal. The best tacos I have ever had and I everyone at the party would say the same thing. Chris & his helper were so nice and friendly as well. All my friends and family kept asking for Chris' information so they could us him also. I will definitely be using them again for further parties!

Chef Robert & Elite Catering were fabulous! They were very helpful from setup to tear down. His staff and him were very friendly and more than professional. The food was delicious and our holiday party was a success. Even the Executive Vice President complimented their attentiveness and their food they served. (being in the hospitality, and food & beverage business, that says alot!) I am looking forward to working with Chef Robert & Elite Catering on our future parties/luncheons. Thank you so much for such a wonderful event!

The food at Mamie's is delicious. My husband and I love the food. I enjoyed the seafood gumbo. The seafood in the gumbo tasted fresh. My husband had the fried chicken and enjoyed it. Crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Looking forward to more dishes added to an already excellent menu. Excellent service. Everyone made us feel at home. We will be back.

As a part of my detox program, I wanted to do the Whole30. I found that doing this with 3 kids is quite a challenge so I hired Chef Nick to prepare my meals for me. Chef Nick really worked with me in figuring out my meal plans for my taste. Not only did he do an excellent job and deliver the food as planned, his food was a joy to eat. You can tell when you meet him that he loves what he does and he loves food.

Alan catered a baby shower for my daughter. He did an amazing job. It was a light lunch with tea sandwiches and a great tomatoe bisque. He was on time, even thought he had to travel from across town to get there. He is a very pleasant man and we got rave reviews from the quests about the food and especially the tomatoe bisque.

Wil was beyond great! Him and his crew came early to be sure all food was ready on time... lets not forget to mention he catered our event in a rain storm for my jobs BBQ at a park. He had his tents ready and provided food the whole time! Our event was to cover food for 150-175 people and everyone was satisfied. He was able to accommodate every request I had, down to providing food for my vegan guests! Thank you so much Wil for helping make my jobs BBQ a success. If I could rate you at 10 stars, I would!

I hired Chef Jeffrey for a party I was throwing for my company. We were attending Magic and Liberty clothing conventions and invited 15 social media influencers to Palms Penthouse to stay for a few days. Jeffrey came to us with all his own supplies, came right on time, and had clear communication through out the entirety. When he got to the penthouse, we realized there was no oven, and he still managed to get the food out on time and BOY WAS IT DELICIOUS. Everyone was so impressed by his ability to cook so fast for 25-30 guests, and all the food was prepared so beautifully. He made us everything from sushi to sliders, and the menu items were all simply delectable. Hire Chef Jeffrey, you and your guests will be beyond happy with the results!

I'm a known writer who had a professional dinner party for acting and directing colleagues. In the past when I've catered, I was disappointed in the amount and quality of food. And then I found Chef Michael Stork's service!! Amazing is not a strong enough description. His food, is not only delectable, but different. Elite, yet his rates are great! Don't even bother going to anyone else! 10 stars! -- Marnie Macauley

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.
