From start to finish AJ was the man. If I could give 10 stars I would. EVERYONE loved the food at our wedding and he even made a special plate for my mother in law with very specific dietary restrictions. The presentation of the food was also beautiful and unique. We cannot sing enough praises to AJ and Red Dot. He was easy to communicate with, always on time and the easiest person to get along with. I highly recommend Red Dot for wedding catering or any other service they provide. Perfect experience!

ALL my guest felt the need to pull me aside and tell me about how fantastic the food was at my wedding. We (my now husband and I) asked Kevin to bring both our heritages into the food and that's exactly what he did. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and we are so happy with Masons Creative Catering overall. Thank you to Kevin and your team for making our wedding a very special day.

Corley was an amazing day-of coordinator. The week of our wedding, Corley was in communication with all the vendors and confirmed all details with them. She helped us manage communication when our hotel had to change at the last minute. She attended our rehearsal the day before the wedding. She dropped off sandwiches for the bridesmaids on the day of the wedding. She also went early to decorate the venue (and it looked incredible!) She ran the ceremony and helped us stay on schedule. She organized all of the clean up and made sure the items were repacked in the correct cars. I couldn't recommend Corley highly enough!

I was a bridesmaid in the wedding of one of my best friends and she selected Arcodoro (through me and Thumbtack) to be the rehearsal dinner restaurant and caterer for her wedding reception. The rehearsal dinner was perfect - the food was amazingly delicious, the atmosphere was elegant and intimate and there was plenty of free parking (a HUGE plus in my book). The catering for the wedding reception went so smoothly, the bride never batted an eye. She was so pleased with the rehearsal dinner, she knew she had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding. Again, the food was wonderful and Kelli made sure all the guests were taken care of. I highly recommend the lobster bisque, bruschetta with assorted toppings and tiramisu cake. We were on a tight schedule for the reception and Kelli and her team made sure the venue was back in it's original state in plenty of time before we had to leave the building. Arcodoro made the wedding a huge success!

My wedding food was a hit! Keif's dishes tasted like home-cooked meals rather than normal bland wedding food which is why I loved Keif! We had baked chicken, green beans, rice, and fish. The menu varied so everyone got a little bit of what they wanted. The price was also very cheap compared to most catering companies for 200 guests. Lastly, we paid for two extra servers/waiters and they were also not pricey compared to other catering companies. Please do not look past Keif's Catering when planning your wedding! He is the best caterer with the best attitude and best wedding food. Thank you Keif and great luck with all your future endeavors!!

I have had the pleasure of being at several events that Chef Devown has catered? The food always is excellent no matter what he is serving the food is very delicious. My favorite of his many dishes is the shrimp and grits. The Chef is very professional and has a keen eye for creating flavorful foods. So I would recommend him if you want great food, service and professionalism for your next catering, birthday or just for any personal meal plan. You will not be disappointed!!!!

our food truck experiance with sabor venezolano was perfect! They showed up right on time and everything went exactly as expected. Everything from the booking process which was super simple and they were very informative about different types of catering food truck food they could do and then when they showed up everything went perfect. Everyone loved the food they had tons of variety and it was absolutely delicious the food came out fast as expected with a food truck but my friends absolutely love the experience. We booked them for a pool party and would totally do it again.

If you are searching for a reliable caterer with a A+ Food, this will be by far your best choice. Hired Qmami Grill for our event. Jonathan was supporting us for setting up the whole event including tables etc. Thanks a lot. These guy´s, who was working as chefs oversea as well, really know what they are doing and you can taste the devotion for their work. The food was just amazing, our guest were impressed about the food quality and we will offer that high quality of catering on our next event again with Qmami Grill.

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.

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 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 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.
