Everything was wonderful. I had a lularoe party and just wanted finger foods. Mark helped me with the menu by suggesting foods and wine pairings. The food was amazing and the party was a success. Thanks to mark and Stephanie.

I recently attended a 275 person dinner catered by Lesley Zaretsky of The Exotic Kitchen. Being in the restaurant business for over a decade I know first hand how hard the food business can be. To say the dinner was superb would be an understatement. Lesley's unique and delicious food items coupled with her attention to detail made the event a huge success. If you are looking for a caterer for 2 people to 500 look no further and hire Lesley of The Exotic Kitchen.

I would recommend Souperb Catering to anyone interested in excellent service and a crew of people who will go above and beyond the call of duty! Not only was the food outstanding, but the personal touch provided by the caterers was obvious among all our guests. Anyone interested in having the best possible event should include Souperb Catering as part of their party!

The food from Chef's Catering is fresh, flavorful, presented beautifully and has an outstanding taste! I have eaten both from the food truck as well as from a catered event. The staff is totally dependable and will work with you to accommodate guests' dietary needs. They're simply the best and I highly recommend them.

My daughter recently got married and Melissa catered the entire event. Neither my daughter nor I were ever even concerned because Melissa was prepared with appropriate suggestions ahead of our first meeting. The event went off without a hitch and everyone was very pleased with the food. I was even given the opportunity to give her information out to several guests of the wedding. No disappointments here!

    WE CANNOT RAVE ENOUGH! We were VERY pleased with how our whole event went! We were planning a 60th wedding anniversary party for our parents and posted a request for quote for up to 60 people on Thumbtack. Within a few hours we received a quote from M&J2 Catering. The quote was within budget, but they also encouraged us to give them a call to discuss special services that they provide at no extra cost - china plates and real flatware! No foil pans - stainless chaffing dishes and china platters. We were able to very easily work out the details of our vision for the event - again, with the "extras" and within budget. The day of the event went sooo smoothly. The professional team arrived on time with all food piping hot. The service area was set up with in no time. Our guests raved about the menu and tastiness of the food. There was very generous portions of everything except the chicken scampi - no fault to M&J2 Catering - it was just so good, just about everyone went back for seconds! We were so pleased everything!

    Star Quality Catering is a experience that I will gladly share with others. The owners respond to your exact needs, provided everything that I asked for to have a successful event. Food was very authentic and uniquely prepared, feel in love with a few of their signature cheesecakes which are reasonably price, delicious and convenient if you are short on time. Thank you Star Quality Catering will definitely be using your services again.

        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.
