When planning our casual wedding reception for 40 guests, my husband and I wanted a classic, Southern style barbecue. The majority of catering quotes we received from others included menu items that we didn't want and that didn't fit our vision - unnecessarily gussied up PNW versions of BBQ. Sandra really listened to what we wanted and prepared the exact menu we were looking for: sliced beef brisket, bone-in grilled chicken, pulled pork, ribs, macaroni and cheese, salads, and drinks -- everything was delicious! Our guests took home leftovers and commented on the awesome food. She set everything up right on time and was so friendly and pleasant to work with. Her catering skills are outstanding and I am so grateful that she's sharing her talents with the world!

Alison and her staff did a fantastic job catering a private party with a wonderful progression of elegant, easy to eat food. We left all the details to her and it couldn't have been better. Professional, efficient and above all, delicious. Highly recommended.

I wanted to make my daughter's first baby shower a special memory. My daughter also only eats vegan. Maribel made many things of Vegan approved ingredients. Some of the things she made were Peruvian food. Peruvian Food is something I was not previously aware of and I have discovered it is exceptionally delicious. I will not dare to try to pronounce or spell what I like best of the Peruvian foods. The item most commented on at the baby shower were these little delicious cupcakes: Maribel created baby faces on the cupcakes of various expressions using frosting. We did not agree in advance on a price for a catering this baby shower for 25 guests. Considering the amount of work and the amount of food the price was very reasonable.

Our experience was absolutely perfect! Everything went well, from the planning to the set up to the extremely good food to the clean up. The prices were very reasonable for the amount of food received. We had to reschedule at the last minute due to the snowstorm and they were extremely accommodating. I would use Divine Catering again and highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you!!

My Vice Catering is a fantastic company. Their values for locally sourced and sustainable products is in line with what we believe in. They also pay and treat their staff so well. The bartenders we happy, efficient, and fun. The staff did an amazing job of busing and cleaning up. They arrived on time and prepared. Then there is the food.... so yummy. We got soooo many compliments from our guests. The appetizers were beautiful and delicious. They used the charcoal bbq at the venue and it really added to the experience and made the food so fresh. All the sauces, salsas, and attention to detail on the buffet table was great. Tarl was very communicative with us throughout the entire process. They handled all the rentals, we just had to pick what we wanted. So easy! If you are planning an event, hire My Vice Catering. Seriously, just do it. They are awesome!

I hosted a birthday party for my father's 79th and it was catered by Elaine and Austin. They brought a roasted turkey (also brined, rubbed and basted with herbed butter) with garlic mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies. Everyone loved the food, especially my dad. Everything was hot, ready to serve, right on time and delicious! Prices were very reasonable too!! I will definitely hire them again.

Rick Browne knows his BBQ and his mastery of the grill has produced some of the best food I have ever tasted. Over the years I have been lucky enough to attend a couple of Rick Browne catered events. Grill-roast prime rib, tangy BBQ sauce, stuffed peppers with BACON!, and an amazing white chocolate orange souffle...just a sample of the goodness that has been prepared by Chef Rick.

We are a university in Portland, OR that hires breakfast and lunch catering for new student orientation events 3 times per year. We have been using a larger commercial catering firm for several years but really wanted a fresh menu and to work with a local smaller café. We stopped by the café/bakery one day to purchase some bakery items and some lunch items to sample prior to choosing our new caterer. Our team loved all of the items and decided to hire Mehri. Mehri was very responsive from initial contact, to planning and through the day of the event. She is a creative and talented chef and everything was delicious. The food was delivered on time and the presentation was perfect. All of the feedback we received was positive. Other departments at the university that need occasional catering asked for Mehri's business card. We will be hiring her for our next event in March.

Regan and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to ensure that her wedding was all that she hoped it would be. From the first, when we wanted a simple ceremony with just a few guests followed by cake and champagne with the residents, to the final day, when we had 45 people for the ceremony in the garden, followed by lunch in the Sullivan Theater and then cake and champagne with the residents in the Hemingway Room, you were amazing. Every time we needed help (Referrals for bakeries? Photographers? Hair stylists?), every time we had questions (Can we have flowers delivered to you? Can we add something to the buffet for the kids? Can we play a DVD slideshow at the reception? ), your response was always “no problem, we can do that”. The lunch buffet was delicious and plentiful (SO glad we didn’t cut the whipped potatoes with basil!), the servers were professional, and the transition from one location to the next seamless. And the little touches were so thoughtful (everyone loved the “eat, drink and be married” sign outside the reception!). You made the wedding so easy and so much fun, Melissa. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Over the years I have worked with many caterers and most of the time they are OK. The workshop has been a great asset to me and the families I serve at Estacada Funeral Chapel. They are willing to work within a budget, give great service and great food. They also are not stressed which is important in my job. They calmly come in and work their magic. Thanks Lou and Janet for all that you do personally and professionally.

    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.
