I highly recommend them to anyone needing a caterer. Very professional and nice to work with, and they went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. The food was incredible and the Queen's Tea was so good, my guests were begging Starr to share the recipe!

Wedding catering was very nice as a guest. Great food! I have also had the privilege of trying out lots of BBC. I haven't had any I didn't want more of. Love the meats.

Julie catered a company Christmas dinner for us. WE ordered food for 25. The food was incredible and the presentation was awesome. We ordered traditional fare and the turkey and trimmings were delicious. The set up and take down were seamless and she made sure we had everything we needed. Pre-meal communication was easy and she made some terrific suggestions. I highly recommend A Picnic Place for your next event.

I hired Brenda to cater my VIP center for the Hound Dog Blues Festival in Tulsa. I wish everyone in attendance could have enjoyed the food! It was outstanding. The selections were never left unattended and they were kept serving hot and attractive. The quality of the dishes rated up there with Mom's! Appealing, flavorful and well seasoned. Setup, cleanup and serving all went off without a hiccup as well. I received constant positive feedback as most performing artists and crews are used to the usual cold sandwiches or BBQ. I highly recommend Brenda for catering your event. You won't be disappointed! Matt Arbuckle, Promoter, Tulsa

Amy and her assistant were wonderful. Amy was immediately responsive to all my emails and questions and came up with several great menu options to choose from and then helped me customize a menu to our needs. The food she cooked was absolutely delicious, an incredibly moist pork loin roast, mashed potatoes and green beans. And, there was even enough left over for a few more meals! The chocolate cake she made for dessert was the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted, ever. To die for. And I'm a huge chocolate fan, so that's saying something. :-) The day of the dinner, Amy arrived on time, was obviously very prepared and highly organized. Everything went so smoothly, we hardly knew she was there! We had fun chatting with her as well though, she seemed genuinely happy to be there cooking for us and interacting with us. Her price was extremely fair too. I highly recommend working with her! I wish I lived in Tulsa and could use her services more often!

Our Daughter was Married in Maui and when she came home we wanted to have a nice reception here in Tulsa so her family and friends that could not make the wedding could see her before she left to go overseas for 3 years. Aila suggested a number of venues but we went with the Go West. We rented the restaurant for four hours, had a great band and we all Cow Boyed up. The food was incredible and the whole event was less than the round trip ticket to Maui for the wife and I. I will call them for our next event.

Naomi is very professional, and everyone had a great time at the lesson. We were making bread, and it turned out wonderfully. it was very interesting to learn about all the steps that go into scratch baking bread, and tips and tricks to get consistent results every time. I am looking forward to the next class she offers. :)

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.
