Luke did a great job catering a sit-down dinner for my daughter's bachelorette weekend. He responded to my initial inquiry promptly and was easy to communicate with via e-mail and text as we planned the menu. The girls wanted to float around the pool and enjoy a few adult beverages during the day, but wanted a restaurant-quality meal that evening without having to worry about dressing up or driving. Luke arrived promptly and served a great meal with a choice of lamb chops or filet mignon as the primary proteins. The meal included a sushi appetizer, salads & sides, and a yummy dessert of creme brulee. He cooked, cleaned, and rolled with the punches with this rowdy group of 8 ladies and they all had a great time and enjoyed the meal. We will definitely hire Luke again for other dinner parties at the house.

Our first experience with Chef Cassy was fantastic! Her service, her food and her attention to my client's was above admirable. We especially appreciated her meal preparation. The food was extremely good, with all of the little touches one expect from a chef, not from a catering experience. We have already contracted with Chef Cassy for our next event and are planning on contracting with her deep into the future. It's five stars from Tom and Tammy Holland and THE Group, Inc. Thanks Chef!

I reached out to Jim through Thumbtack for a quote for catering our wedding reception. Within hours Jim replied with all the details I needed. Within days Jim had sent us all of his paperwork including his insurance papers, permits, menu and itemized invoice, all while we were still waiting on call-backs from "friend-of-a-friend" "caterer-on-the-side types." People who, no doubt, didn't have any of these permits or insurance or even realized they need them to work in some venues. Planning this thing was filled with indecision, date changes and even a venue change. We actually contacted 2 other cateres and NEVER GOT A REPLY. Through it all Jim was calm, accommodating and flexible. All i ever got from this guy was "no problem" and " I'll take care of it." After all was said and done we decided to cancel the reception. But I was so taken with Jim's level of professionalism and service that I felt compelled to send him something anyway. We both felt such a sense of relief and peace once we had him booked, and that's priceless. I'd like to also share one note with anyone who may have reservations about having bbq at a wedding reception, as my fiance did at first. If you're concerned that there will be bbq sauce everywhere and it will get all over your guests' hands and clothes, please don't be. Jim offers a wide assortment of meats and his food isn't prepared or served swimming with bbq. We were looking forward to serving our guests a real, bonafide, down home, stick-to-your-ribs MEAL, and not some bougie over-priced veggie platter or dry-ass chicken breast-broccoli dinner. In fact not having had the opportunity to have Jim's food was the only disappointing thing about cancelling our reception. But if his food is anywhere near the level of his service and professionalism we were in for quite an amazing experience. I will definitely have him top of mind for any event needing a caterer in the future.

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."

Urban Taste Catering did an excellent job in meeting our expectations for our 4 Day Executive event. They worked with me in regards to my budget and it didn't take away from the quality of the food or set up. The food was delicious, and the communication between Tiffaney and myself was clear, prompt, and concise. She was also able to create a gluten free menu for me that didn't lack in taste and deliciousness and it was lovely. I was nervous about using someone that I wasn't familiar with since I was planning this event from out of state and I am so glad that thumbtack was able to put me in touch with her.

I would highly recommend Fancy's Personal Chef Services. Within one week, we were able to connect, draw up a menu (Fancy is very accommodating) and solidify a very fair price. My group of guys raved about the Omelet Bar and Sweet Potato Hash that Fancy prepared at our office. Huge success all around! Would definitely use Fancy again for private catering! Thank you Fancy!

I used The Bite's catering services 2 weekends ago for my father in laws 70s birthday party. We were all so impressed with their food and quality of service. We chose their American Affairs Menu buffet style and it did not disappoint! We loved that Chef Evan through in our menu his mini spinach and cheese tarts. It was a wonderful little detail that made the party even more special. Him and his wife are a young vibrant team. Def will be using them again!

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.
