Luke catered a graduation dinner for 9 people and the food was amazing. He was very professional and also fun to talk to. He interacted with my guests while he cooked and served us all from the beginning to the end. He was also great to work with as we planned the menu together. I will definitely use Luke again.

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."

WOW is the word that pretty much sums up our experience with Urban Taste! I am with Pensacola International Airport and we had the honor of hosting a Deck Night Party at Southwest HQ in Dallas, TX. Not being from Dallas and only having one months notice - I had no clue on catering companies and their performance. I reached out to Urban Taste Catering and Tiffany was so easy and pleasant to work with! She was able to customize the menu to fit our Gulf Coast hometown cuisine and also coordinated all of the amazing decorations and props for us! The success of our event wouldn't have been possible without Tiffany and her wonderful team and I highly recommend Urban Taste Catering to anyone in, or near, the Dallas area!

Tony was absolutely amazing from the very beginning, since the first message I received from him he showed him his professionalism, patience and his true passion for his catering business. He always responded to every single question I had with a smile, and I had A LOT. He always reassured me that he was going to make my wedding day a special day, and he did, even with some obstacles due to having a small kitchen at the venue I picked, and having very little time to setup, he made everything worked to perfection, the food was delicious, he made sure me and my husband got something to eat at our wedding! I was full just after eating the appetizers since they were of very generous size. His staff was incredible too. He truly seemed thankful for giving him the opportunity of being part of our wedding, but I'm the one that's thankful for having found Tony. You definitely get your money worth, and compared to what others caterers want to charge and for less food, you will get more than what you are paying for. I foresee and wish much success in the future for Tony's business.

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.

I have had two experiences with Cari Avit. She made appetizers for two Holiday events for large groups. One was homemade meatballs, a specialty from her vast Italian cooking background, and the other, a Southwestern appetizer for our Holiday Party this week. It was beautifully displayed, tasty, and very healthy as well. The guests all loved it and Cari as she circulated and met a lot of them! I would highly recommend her, both in skill level and in personal presentation skills.

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!

Nate did an amazing job catering my wedding reception! He has an extensive menu to choose from. We tasted several items at our tasting and loved everything. We settled upon the blackened salmon and the southwest chicken along with several sides (which were just as tasty). The food and presentation at our wedding reception was impeccable!! We received several compliments from our guests about the food. To top it all off, his prices are better than many other caterers/hotels. Great food at a great price!! You can't beat that! I would definitely recommend Nate to anyone looking for a caterer!!

If you are looking for the best catering in Dallas, you probably need to call El Rey del Grill. I catered many times from them for special events. And not only food was delicious it also came in a timely manner. On top of it, they served the food for me! His staff was very professional, clean, and reliable. Next time you are having an event, your first choice will be El Rey del Grill. -Angela Licona

I’ve always been extremely picky when it comes to the food I eat. I’ve been in the metroplex since 1990 and I can’t remember tasting any BBQ as good as Lennie's. I’ve had the pleasure of talking with him about his cooking and I can say his attention to detail has paid off. He honestly loves what he does and constantly strives to out do himself daily. Hard working man, awesome food. - Michael

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.

Do you tip a wedding caterer?

Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
