Pam was willing to work with my budget and even threw in some plates and disposable silverware for free when I realized I'd forgotten to buy some on the wedding day. Very nice lady! I would definitely recommend them. My guests loved the chicken stir fry, and she kept everything allergen free for my family as well as accommodated my vegan diet.

Rachel Kohler, Director of Catering & Private Events, was wonderful to work with! She was quick in her responses, very professional, and detail oriented in the planning of our reception. Ludlow was very accommodating to our request for a completely gluten free buffet and it was outstanding! Guests were delighted by the Artisan cheese and fruit display, and raved about the wood fire grilled chicken breast with the Chimmichuri dipping sauce. The grilled asparagus was so good we were all amazed by it! The servers were professional and kept everything going smoothly. I would definitely use Ludlow's again!

Chef Laura has the ability to create delicious AND nutritious organic meals that will appeal to all your guests. Her take on the traditional Thanksgiving menu--green bean casserole, for example, made with fresh green beans, mushrooms, caramelized onions and quinoa--left even the die-hard traditionalists heading for seconds. Her takes on chicken (pomegranate glazed), fish (lemon-dill cod; Tuscan salmon), her fresh and flavorful salads ( cranberry apple with Dijon vinaigrette)and hearty, healthy soups (caramelized carrot and fennel) set Chef Laura apart from other caterers. She is a pleasure to work with and listens to her clients. Her goal is to prepare creative, nutritious, organic meals that appeal to a wide range of palates. She succeeds at this. Your guests will appreciate your fine "taste" in selecting Chef Laura.

B and G Hospitality catered a dinner for our large group of friends. The food was delicious, plentiful, and beautifully displayed. The risotto they served was the creamiest I have ever had, and the roast beef was cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend them!

Jerilyn taught a cooking class at my home and we were all dazzled. She also has now cooked for my home dinner parties as well and was just wonderful. Her cooking skills were so impressive and her nutritional knowledge amazing. She knew just what to do for my gluten free friends and each guest felt special, as well as learning what foods to avoid and how to again eat what they loved by substitutions. Wow! I would highly recommend her for any catering events as well as private home dinner parties.

She responded right away, and was amazing at working with all of the dietary needs that I have at my wedding (gluten, diary, gluten and dairy). She was easy to talk to, and was just over all helpful with getting everything set up.

    Nicole and her team are FABULOUS! They catered a 60 person sit-down meal for a graduation party for me. The food was EXCELLENT and PLENTIFUL. The servers were over-the-top helpful and courteous - picking up my guests empty plates as well as keeping our buffet well-stocked the entire party. Everything I asked for was there on time and and the food was hot - all at a very reasonable price. I WILL BE using Goodness Gracious for my catering needs again. They made a party that could have been a real stressful event for me into a wonderful event where my guests were well-fed and impressed - and I was stress-free! Thanks Nicole and team!

    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.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    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.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
