Josh did a great job bar-tending our corporate event. He was hired to bar-tend our law firm's ribbon cutting event at our new office in Midtown Manhattan, and every attendee had a GREAT time and the event was a huge success - which I think was largely due to Josh's service and great bar-tending skills. Thank you for your hard work and willingness to stay late on short notice, Josh!!

Chef Ellen is great. My third time with her band. Runs a pro catering service. Thoughtful, helps plan the menu, makes the budget work and then, on the day of the event, she and her crew get it done great. From set up to clean up, great. Honestly, you know, throwing a good party for 50-60 people, there's enough to worry about. It's a gift to be able to hand off such an important portion of the affair to a pro like Ellen. Thanks!!

Perfect! I requested catering services very last minute since my previous caterer canceled and Chef chris came to my rescue! He was so helpful and accommodating and I felt relieved the second I spoke with him. The event was flawless and It was a blessing in disguise that the previous caterer canceled because I got to experience NY Catering Service. Can’t wait to do this again. Thanks!!

I used Angel Waitress Service for my son’s HS Grad party on the Saturday that just passed. Coming from a long line of “managers” in fields such as hospitality & hotel management, catering, and healthcare, I have to say that not only do I not have any complaints, but I’m so happy to have used this company. Putting everything together was overwhelming and I would not have been able to pull it off without the ladies being present. Kristen, Sharon, and Nancy jumped right in, helped out where they saw the need, and did it all while remaining completely professional. To have been a backyard bbq party, everyone had a great time and were so impressed with how everything turned out! I received several compliments about these ladies from our guests which says alot. Even based on personalities alone, they all get an A+ in my book and are welcome at my home anytime. I am definitely going to be utilizing them for more events to come! Thank you Kristen, Sharon & Nancy 💗

This is a first class professional catering service. You really do get what you pay for: not only was the food delicious, but Lauren and her team were superb: very sweet, but also very efficient, paying attention to every detail, and giving us precious advice when needed. Our bartender (whom we had hired separetly because we had a previous relationship with him) failed to show up and Lauren immediately and seamlessly fixed that glitch by re-organizing her staff and deploying 2 of them to tend bar. Every aspect of the service was very good. We cannot recommend them enough and will use them again. Thank you Lauren, Tony, John and all the others.

We were extremely happy with the catering services that Manjar provided for a small cocktail party to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Adolfo and his team were professional and attentive and went above and beyond to make the occasion special. The passed appetizers were delicious and presented beautifully. We can't thank Adolfo enough for his attention to detail and his personalized service that allowed us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.

Joe is a true professional. We hired him for an art gallery opening night event based on his stellar reviews. He arrived very early, set up a beautiful bar, and was on top of his game in everything we needed--from serving drinks to keeping an eye out and giving us suggestions. He is lovely, charismatic, and does incredible work. If you need any kind of bartending service, there simply is no other option.

Above and beyond truly stand by there name. I have been in the catering business a long time so I'm so used to doing everything myself, every time I started doing something Alyssa stopped me in my tracks and sent me out to enjoy my daughters party. My kitchen was left clean all food put away and given out as I asked. Anytime leading up to party during and after any questions I had Jacki was on it. I never had to wait for responses. Very professional employees and I will. 100% use them again for my future parties, so will the rest of my family. We were all impressed. Thanks for making my babys 1st bday party so easy and enjoyable!

JP and his team were fantastic and we look forward to working with him again. He catered an event for 120 guests the night before our wedding so it was pretty important to us that it went right! The food was delicious, we still have friends telling us how much they loved it. He really goes above and beyond to ensure a good experience and provided us with many more dishes than we had anticipated. I would absolutely recommend him.

Richard did an amazing job a bartending my cocktail party of 50 people. He showed up on time, was dressed very professionally and worked hard to make sure that no guest was left thirsty! He has a great customer focused demeanor and was a big hit with all of my guests. He organized the bar and kept it very clean and throughout the evening and left the bar area cleaner than he found it. I will definitely hire Richard for my next event!

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.
