Really wonderful tailgate party for our Austin office. It was a special occasion--and i was in California choosing the caterer. I really appreciate the owner, the confidence she gave me, her responsiveness, the set up and the pick up and the food! the glorious food! the table was beautiful and the food was delicious--she was on time, on budget, and really did the extra work to make me feel comfortable with my decision to hire her from afar. Now that i've done so, i'll be hiring her again and again! i highly recommend her!

As an anniversary present for my in-laws, we scheduled a private cooking class at our home with Kitchen Canvas. We had a blast! Katie is very knowledgeable and fun. She was very responsive on email and took care of everything from grocery shopping to clean up. The food was delicious and we all learned a great deal that will spice up our home cooking for years to come!

I had the chance to try this place last week since I was working in the area. I ordered some Tacos and were absolutely delicious and their salsas are authentic, too. They make the tacos fresh, it's fast, it's cheap, it's tasty. What more could you want? The service was really quick and the food absolutely delicious!

Chef Bon has been coming to our house each week for the past three and a half months, and she has changed our lives! Not only is her food amazing, she has catered to our needs, and our health has improved greatly. After being diagnosed with diabetes, in a short three months, I have been able to lose 25 pounds, lower my blood sugar and cholesterol all by eating her yummy, healthy foods! She is very personable, reliable and really cares about us. I can't recommend her enough.

Diva B’s Kitchen provided an amazing food and beverage service for my wedding reception. I was able to taste test the items that would be on the menu prior to the event, discuss the time table in which items would be served and see my idea of a successful reception implemented. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and the price was fair and reasonable. On one of the most important days of my life, I can look back in retrospect with fond memories of my experience. I would recommend Diva B’s Kitchen to anyone I know.

We absolutely loved the food and service Troy’s Texas BBQ provided. We hired them to cater our wedding. We had the brisket, chicken wrapped in bacon, and three sides. Our guests absolutely loved the food, and we are still getting compliments on how good the food was a month later. Service was outstanding as well. The food was there on time and the set up looked professional. We definitely recommend them.

Chef Heath provided tea sandwiches and some hors d'oevres for an adult birthday party. He delivered the food on time and helped arrange it for the party. The spinach and goat cheese tartlets weren't successful; the pastry got soggy. Otherwise the food was good, and the service was great.

I worked as a bartender at Buenos Aires Cafe for 8 months in 2014. I truly enjoyed working there and the family atmosphere and attitude we all had. Behind the bar we were allowed to be creative and pursue our passion as well as learn a lot about the food and drink culture of Argentina. I truly and enjoyed working there and still consider myself friends with many of the people I used to work with.

Identifying a team building event that is truly collaborative in nature, out of the box, something everyone can participate in and that includes good food and drink is no easy task. Thankfully, Silver Whisk has the perfect recipe. From start to finish, the experience was pleasant. The team at Silver Whisk is extremely professional, responsive and passionate about what they do. They worked with us to plan a truly customized event that worked for the size of our group and budget. The venue was also a perfect fit. It was our own private home for the evening and was beautifully decorated and set up when the team arrived. The Iron Chef competition was so much fun. Everyone was engaged and involved, whether as a cook or judge. The dishes we prepared were delicious - unique, but easy enough that anyone could easily prepare them at home. We selected Thai and French. Everyone wanted the recipes afterwards! Jake and Myrna were great coaches and made the evening educational, but fun, competitive and very tasty. Everyone on the team agreed that this was, by a long stretch, the most fun team building activity they participated in. I would not hesitate to hold another event with Silver Whisk and would love to take advantage of some of their other offerings!

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.
