Miss Lisa was the first to respond to my inquiry regarding a surprise birthday party for my lovely wife. I asked friends who know her business and received very positive feedback. When I contacted Miss Lisa, she was incredibly professional, responsive, and attentive to my needs for this to be a great party. She obviously has a lot of experience in the industry and more importantly, her customer service attributes makes you want to do business with her; It’s all about you. Although I had to cancel the party due to unforeseen circumstances, I will definitely contact Miss Lisa for a catering event in the future.

Above and beyond would be one way I desribe the quality and service that I received from Gourmet Guy Catering. Matt and his team were kind, patient, and professional. Matt worked to tailor a menu to suit our wants and needs. So many of the guests at our wedding complimented how delicious the food and service was. The food was beyond what you would expect at a typical wedding. The chicken was cooked to perfection! The waitstaff were so attentive and willing to jump in wherever needed. One of the ladies even helped me carry my dress and an umbrella as I had to make a run through the pouring rain. It is clear that Matt and the reast of the team at Gourmet Guy are passionate about their work and committed to quality service. They are honest, fair, and talented.

Damon's food will live in our hearts and memories FOREVER! It was AMAZING! He was very easy and helpful to work with. He catered to what I wanted and not some pre selected menu which was a plus! I would and did recommend him to everyone that wasn't fortunate enough to dine on his delectable offerings! I will use Damon for all my catering needs in the future! You WON"T be sorry if you choose this company! He will make it memorable!

It was the first time we used Kitchen Academic, LLC to cater an office luncheon. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Our staff was impressed and pleased with the presentation and the taste. Markus was a joy to work with; very thorough in his approach to catering the event, arrived on time and prepared and stayed until the lunch was concluded. I couldn't have asked for better service. We will definitely use Kitchen Academic for future office functions. Oh and did I mention the food was delicious!

I highly recommend Gianpiero's Catering! The food is made with excellence. You will not find better quality of service and food selection with exquisite taste for the price. The Gianpiero pasta is my personal favorite and it is what they are known for.

An amazing personal chef experience. Chef Nova came to my home and prepared an amazing dinner for my husband and I on our anniversary. She was very professional, and ensured to make a meal we would enjoy. Chef prepared for us a fresh green salad tossed in a homemade Caesar dressing, roasted asparagus, creamy shrimp Alfredo alongside a thick juicy flavorful rib eye steak. My husband and I toasted our anniversary with a white wine sangria chef prepared also. Needless to say it was an amazing evening that we will never forget.

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.
