We loved Ed! Not only was the food DELICIOUS, but the service was outstanding. Ed is a real people person, and every visit we had felt comfortable. Ed and Amazing Caterers catered for my wedding on Oct. 7th 2016. All my guests loved the food and variety Amazing Caterers offer, and I even had the chefs checking on myself; always asking if I needed anything throughout the night. Ed also went above and beyond for us, and got us a quote and set up for flatware 3 days before the wedding when a crisis had hit! Thank you Ed, and thank you Amazing Caterers!!

We hired Marc for a private awards ceremony for the National Boys Scout of America. His BBQ is sensational, the smoked chicken was so tender. His BBQ should be in everyone's house and I really enjoyed the Caesar salad he prepared. As one chef (including my staff) to another we recognize true talent and all of here at WPG salute a true artist in the BBQ meats. We look forward to another fine menu prepared by him.

I live in another state from Chef Cassy. I was able to call her with less than a days notice to put together a beautiful corporate luncheon for me. She arrived early and set up everything for the luncheon while the meeting continued. I will use her again as my friend who does business in the Dallas area frequently. She is professional and very easy to work with.

Chef Jared cooked a delicious meal for us at the Airbnb we rented for a 12 person Bachelorette party. He was easy to work with and professional. And the food was delicious!!! (Strawberry ice cream was to die for). It was so nice to not have to worry about being in the kitchen while entertaining, and Chef Jared even did all of the cleanup. HIGHLY recommend hiring Chef Jared!

Working with Tiffaney was amazing!! I set up a tasting with her first and she came in with her sous chef and executed as if it was the actual event, I couldn't have asked for more! The food tasted amazing and the presentation was beautiful. I was doing a corporate event in a Dallas but live and work in NJ and Tiffaney made everything easy for me. She was the first one to respond to my inquiry and her responsiveness continued through the whole process. Her team executed beautifully as well. She remained calm and confident when any obstacles came up. I would highly recommend her for any and every event!! I can't wait to do another event in Dallas so I can work with her again.

Anabel did a fantastic job with the cake for my son's 5th birthday. She really listened to my idea and helped keep the cake within budget. I really didn't want to buy a cake from the grocery store. My son loved the cake; his reaction said it all! Thanks Anabel, I definitely recommend you to anyone.

Latoia catered my baby shower and did a wonderful job! The food was excellent and plated beautifully! Latoia came to my home a couple of weeks prior and she helped me plan the set up for my buffet, food stations and how to flow the party outside. I will be hiring her in the future for more events!

Roger was very professional and extremely easy to work with. I explained to him over the phone my expectations, and he had great recommendations. I am allergic to gluten and I was so impressed with his knowledge about gluten and great menu ideas. We ended up having the entire menu gluten free and not one guest complained. The food was amazing!! Every single person raved about the food. From the appetizer to main dish, it was ALL delicious! I highly recommend Soirée Chef Group.

Chefs Table was more concerned about me having aunique experience that my guest would remember. They prepared a brunch buffet for 50 of my guest and the food was delicious. What impress me the most was that there wasn't a set menue. Chef Debra consulted with me as to what I would like to have and even suggested items that I would have never thought of. If you give them a try, you will not be disapointed. I will call them again.

Chef Kristen is the best in Dallas custom catering! Her service is impeccable and her food is unbelievably delicious and beautiful at the same time. She took time to meet with me before our event to customize the menu, and did everything to make sure the party ran smoothly. Her staff was amazing as well. I highly recommend Chef Kristen and her team!

    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.
