Our family was so impressed with Sooo Good Catered Creations. Angelique and her staff provided the catering for our mother's 90th birthday party. From day one we had no doubt that we had chosen the right person, especially when we changed our choice from drop off to full service. Angelique was so very helpful and no detail was to large or to small to handle. The staff was very professional and friendly and the food and service was OUTSTANDING! So many of our guests commented on how great everything was. We would, and have recommended her catering service to several people. We can't thank her enough for all she did to help make our mother's birthday such a special event. Thank you so much!!!

Lovell Catering was outstanding. We had them provide a dinner for my Masonic Lodge for a special occasion. We had many guest from our State Leadership and other visiting dignitaries. The fee was reasonable, the food was out of this world. We had so many great selections. I know now when I travel to other Lodges they always talk about what a great job Lovell Catering did. They always want to know, when we are having Lovell Catering back so they can come back and visit us.

    If you like healthy, homemade food this is your caterer. If you have dietary needs don't be shy or feel awkward, these people seamlessly accommodate. Thinking outside the box is their specialty when it comes to flavor. Nothing mediocre about this food. Presentation is fabulous, eye-opening to say the least, almost too appealing to dive into but go for it! Great variety offered even for a week-long event. Definitely not their first rodeo. Excellent customer service. Articulate and professional. Chances are there will be a speed bump along the way but how a business rebounds is crucial to me and keeps my business.

              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.
