The food was very good and plentiful, everything was on time and clean-up left nothing for us to do. Karen knows how to cater a great party, her employees are very nice yet need a bit more training in bartending and catering. Karen has the patience to work with them.

Holiday Sit-down dinner for 14. Prime rib, shrimp cocktail, tossed salad, twice baked potatoes, green beans with silvered almonds, rolls and mini strawberry shortcake. Food was delicious, a little slow as to not being accustomed to my kitchen, not knowing where things were and not asking but with this large of dinner party it was hard for caterers to get my attention. Caterers only big problem was not leaving early enough (after we discussed it) to get through the extremely heavy traffic and arrive on time which threw dinner off from scheduled time. Since everyone attending were friends, it just worked out that we had more time to talk but it caused the caterers to cook and reheat dinner items because they had gotten cold waiting in traffic getting here. It ended up working out well, a good time was had by one and all and as I early mentioned, the food was delicious- far above what we had expected. We will highly recommend Lunas catering and also will use them again in any future catering needs.

Katie just catered a meal for 22 girls for a Bachelorette Party at the house we rented over the weekend. From the very beginning, Katie was extremely helpful, responsive and gave us many different menus and options to choose from. She had great communication and not the mention her food is amazing! Everything tasted fantastic and all the girls raved about the food even days later. Katie was extremely professional, dinner was served exactly on time and they cleaned up everything so nicely. If I lived in Austin I would definitely use her as much as I could for any future private catering events. Thanks so much for helping create a wonderful night for us!

    Ms. Cordero's creativity and attention to detail makes it difficult to find fault in any aspect of the job. She's able to create classic and amazing combinations of flavors and even cuisines. Her experience in kitchens makes her able to transition into catering easily, and as her work in this field increases, I can only see her already great work growing into nothing less than stellar.

    About

    No hard feelings but the truth is they have lied when they claim to be gurus in bringing the taste of authenticity. We don't have to lie or claim because we don't do authentic meat, veggies and spices or breads, grains and pulses in the land of melting pot, where your friends, family or neighbors, coworkers and strangers come from a faraway land that we use to read or study in geography during our school days. They all know what meat or vegetables, spices and breads/grains/pulses are. Preference of taste buds is about the only difference. As diversity, we are, but all, in a melting-pot university dreaming to give a perfect end, which is to change for the better and more than better. That is all we do with food; it is to change for the better and more than better to keep harmony among diversity attending you events. We are not big companies doing all kinds, who knows whatever for everybody. One by one as remarked in our event calendar is the way we do it to plan it right for you, and after all when your guests ate it all, ummm what's the right word? Modern day and way of saying it, yeah -- food orgasm! You just made the history among your invited guests for they shall always talk about you.

    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.
