I was thrilled with Amazing Caterers! I had a birthday party for a group of 30 and I used Amazing Caterers, a caterer I had not worked with before. Thus, I was quite nervous. However, there was no need to fret. The food was fabulous and Kelly, the server, was truly exceptional. Since the event was such a success, I will be planning another one soon! Have already picked out the items from Amazing Caterers great menu!

Marc was incredibly quick to respond to my questions and put together a great quote for us. We went out and had a tasting with both our families (7 people total) and had an exceptional meal. We're incredibly excited to have Tatering as our caterer for our wedding and would highly recommend them if you're looking for someone that brings exceptional quality for a great value.

Luke prepared a special 5 course holiday dinner for my family of 10. Not only was the food superb, but the whole experience from his arrival at our home until he left was awesome. He was very laid back, but also professional and confident. He was so friendly with my family and impressed us with his skill and presentation. We are already scheduling Luke to come back!

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!

I recently held a retirement party for my husband and myself and hired Meat and Greet for the event. What I wanted was a casual meal and one where I didn't have to do anything but mingle with my guests. Meat and Greet came through for me. All of my guests were quizzing me about the caterers and where I found them. The food was absolutely delicious and even though I didn't get to eat right away, too busy socializing, by the time I got a plate, everything was still hot. The servers were polite and friendly to my guests, it was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this company to anyone.

The low price (in comparison with other caterers) was what drew us to Jared Pierre Catering. Overall, we were pleased. During the tasting and initial discussion of the menu/event, Jared was very accommodating with our requests and was willing to make suggestions and adjust from the sample menu he sent. Communication from that point on was fairly easy. He replied within a professional time frame, but it often took a couple emails in order to get my question answered. An emergency came up the week before the wedding, resulting in Jared finding a replacement for the event. Because of this, things seemed to have gotten lost in translation and our menu items/quality was not exactly what we ordered. Nonetheless, guests still enjoyed it: One even said "this was the best food I've ever had at a wedding."

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.

We had a New Year's Eve party, and Mell's food was the star of the show. So delicious!! He was super-responsive throughout the planning process and helped us estimate the food almost to the exact plateful, so there was no waste but nobody left hungry. Mell is my new go-to caterer.

I had never hired a caterer online before and was nervous about doing so for an important lunch with prospective clients, but I am SO HAPPY that I hired Evan and his team to cater our lunch event at work last Saturday! We were all blown away by the mini spinach and artichoke dip bites, the smoked brisket and chicken and the beer battered mac and cheese balls...wish I could get some more of this delicious food right now :-)! Our prospective clients were from the west coast, and chef Evan sure managed to give them a taste of Texas that they'll never forget. Best of all, they signed on with us as new clients - I truly think that it was partly due to the warm hospitality and good cooking of the BITE catering. Next time I have an event, business or personal, I definitely know who I'll be calling to cater it - chef Evan and his amazing team. Thanks so much!!!!

I can't say enough good things about Provisions Catering (Kim)! Our guests could not stop talking about the amazing food, as well as the presentation. Kim and Carly arrived a few hours early and set everything up before the guests arrived...it was beautiful. They continued refreshing and cleaning all night. At the end of the night, everything was packed away into containers, dishes were done, and my kitchen was once again spotless. If you want a caterer that delivers everything promised and more, choose Provisions!

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.
