We had Buffalo's Best cater my daughters graduation party and the food was excellent!! We had so many people raving about the food, they couldn't believe they were at a grad party. From the first phone call, through ordering and delivery, they were so professional and helpful. They even provide the signs for the food, so no one has to ask what it is. I would highly recommend Buffalos Best Catering and I will definitely use them again!!

I have ordered from A Great Plate Catering on several occasions. The service always exceeded my expectations. Customer service is excellent. Food is outstanding and I have had the pleasure of getting my orders delivered to my residence and my place of employment. I am anticipating my next party so the food can be totally handled by A Great Plate. I would definitely recommend them to anyone...if you enjoy great food and pleasant customer service, choose A Great Plate Catering.

BEST experience with a catering company ever. The ladies came prepared. Here's the real deal. They were on time. Every single guest we had (about 40) including all the kids said it was the best food ever. They cooked more than enough food, and cleaned up everything. They are super sweet and very professional. I Seriously want to have more parties now. I can't stress enough how easy the entire process was. I highly recommend them to anyone. You won't be dissapointed.

I've had Kevin and crew for multiple occasions. He is always my first call for my children's birthday parties, holiday and office parties or larger get togethers. It always takes the stress out of hosting a party, knowing that his product will be hot, fresh and great tasting, leaving us free to socialize instead of working to please your guests. The price is always very reasonable. I never hesitate to recommend Kevin's for friends and their needs, such as a stag party that I recently attended. It was great to know that I would eat good food instead of the standard "stag grub" that is so often served. Recommend highly!

I could not be happier with Mr. & Mrs. Cat ering Service. Everyone raved about how good everything tasted and how fresh everything was. The portions were very generous and all our party attendees took at least 2 to go containers of food home with them. Since we a had some no shows of people that RSVPd saying they were coming and didnt, I was able to connect with the Buffalo City Mission homeless female shelter and donate 50 or so meals to them that evening around 730pm. They were thrilled! I would absolutely recommend this caterer for each and every party or get get her where a lot of mouths need fed. You can't go wrong with the price, quality, customer service and portion sizes.

      I must say I am not much of a review writer and never do until I at least had three experiences. Well where do I start. I will start with April. She is professionali at its finest. She is very talented in giving me recommendations for my parties. All of her food was just delicious and fabulous presented. My friends and family raved about how delicious everything was. I must say I wanted to take the credit and say I made everything myself but all the credit goes to April. She is mine and my friends and family's go to caterer and planner. 5 stars

      Karianne catered a party of 100 people and is also doing my wedding in a month for 150 people. Both jobs will be in Niagara Falls New York. I was very impressed with her work. She was very diligent and helpful. Made helpful l recommendations that were in my interest not hers. Everything was on time, hot, and tasted delicious. She was very professional and made my party a success.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

      Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

      Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

      How much should catering cost per person?

      Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

      • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
      • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
      • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
      • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
      • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
