Ed was extremely focused on the details of our situation. In prior years of our banquet which has 650 guests annually we always had long lines and wait times. We are a non-profit ministry and we were needing a price that matched what we were paying as well. Ed looked at the layout of the building 2 times before the event and set up double the serving lines we have had in the past with smart setup of which type of foods you allow guests to pick and what they serve as well as placement of drinks. There was literally no lines and the food was great and no more then what we paid before. Don't let the non-franchise, private operation fool you. He knows the catering business and is a honorable and great man to work with.

Marc catered entrees for banquet for a student organization at UT Dallas. I changed the menu a couple of times and he was very patient and had no problems with it. It was my first time organizing an event like this, but Marc made it an easy, streamlined process. He gives the best deals per person I've seen yet! Not only was the food delicious and more than plentiful, but it was a pleasure working with Marc, and I look forward to working with him for future events. The entrees we ordered, the chicken parmesan and lemon chicken, were well-received by all guests. Highly recommend this caterer!

We hired Chef Cassy to cater our Christmas party for approximately 50 people. We live in Coppell, Texas and evaluated several other caterers before we decided on Chef Cassy. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable, and the overall experience as good as it gets. She and her staff were very friendly, yet professional. Everything was hot, and prepared right in our kitchen. Her alligator balls were the hit of the party. She and her staff also did a wonderful job cleaning up afterwards. I would highly recommend Chef Cassy and we plan to use her again. Great job!

Jared was very thoughtful and kind throughout the wedding reception. He made sure to stop by on several occasions to ensure we get appetizers and even plated our dinner. Our guests loved the food options and everything was so flavorful--it was nice to have leftovers at the end of the night to snack on as well!!! Jared, thank you for making our reception memorable!!!

Cindy and Steve are absolutely wonderful! They made the party as far as my daughter's wedding was concerned. I felt very confident of my decision after meeting them for the first time, and as my new son-in-law said, " The DJ's are awesome!" Steve directed us all in the wedding party, and stepped right in when dinner was a bit late. And Cindy's delivery of drum riffs during the speeches was right on and hilarious. It couldn't have been any better! I have never had the occasion to hire DJ's before, and if I did again, Steve and Cindy are the ones I'd want.

Nina was very professional, responsive and made me feel comfortable with my purchase from start to finish. I’ve interacted with other caterers and none compare to Spiced Lavender. Their staff showed up at the agreed time to make sure everything was set up before my guests were to arrive. The food was soooooo delicious we were afraid we would run out. But we never did!!!! Overall, Spiced Lavender was very professional, punctual, and customer service oriented with delicious food that made my event go smooth and kept my guests happy.

The food we ordered was great and everyone complimented the flavoring! She not only delivered the food and just dropped it off as we agreed upon. Chef AJ also helped my sister set up and get the pans started warming up. We had looked for other caterers that would just supply what we needed and not want to add on sides and things that we did not need. She responded with a good price quote and a list of only what we needed! I would recommend her to anyone needing no hassle catering at a good price!

We ended up not using Mell's grill, but received a nice phone call and feel that the experience probably would have been very positive had we decided to have a catered food truck for our party.

Provisions catered dinner for 50 people at my house and did a fabulous job. Everything showed up on time, they were efficient, polite and the food was exquisite. They provided a full staff including bar tenders and when the party was over they cleaned up the mess like nothing ever happened. They also neatly packed all of the leftovers and put them away. I will definitely use them again. Jay

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.
