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!

If you are looking for a wonderful caterer, look no further! Laura pre-arranged a meeting place for a taste testing before booking and went over all of my menu options with me. She was even willing to plan the menu around the fact that my venue did not have an area for cooking. She was responsive to my budget, all of my needs, concerns, and any questions that I had. On the day of the wedding, Laura and her team operated so smoothly - I didn't have to worry about a thing! Food (and even cake after the cutting) was set aside for my husband and I and was waiting for us at our table. The cake was beautiful and everyone raved about how wonderful the food was! (My new mother-in-law said it was the best wedding food she had ever eaten)

Katie was personable, professional, and fun. She created a custom menu for a cooking lesson with a bachelorette party of 10 girls. Her pricing was fair and the food was delicious! I would recommend or plan an event with Katie any time.

She has been a great influence on our family. Not only is she a talented Chef but she is also a wonderful person. We feel like she is an extension of our family.

After all our usual catering choices were unavailable, we scurried to find someone who could cater a small Board luncheon on short notice. We posted our need on Thumbtack, and discovered a jewel! Helen of "Be My Guest Catering" delivered a beautiful meal with chafers and real plates and stemware, instead of our usual disposable everything. The food was fabulous (chicken stuffed with wild rice and apricots), the presentation was lovely, and the impression she made on our Board with her "above and beyond" service will guarantee her return. Well done, Helen Markow!

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.

My husband asked Seconds Catering to cook for our 1st anniversary lunchon. The food was freshly prepared with care, due to myslef having multiple allergies. The food was ready to serve, on time, after we returned from a family event. Chef Aaron had set the table beautifully and did an amazing job accommodating our specific request. We will definitely use Seconds Catering for our next big family event!!!!

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.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
