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!

This was awesome. We love dinner parties, but this year we've just had no time. And even when we did have time, we were wiped after the week, and couldn't face the cleaning, cooking, and cleaning again (dishes -- like a hangover without the fun drunk part beforehand). We decided to splurge and try a catering/chef service. We chose Chef Bonnie and were very pleased. Communication via email and phone was promptly responded to. She handled the somewhat complex dietary issues of some of our guests without batting an eyelash. She noted our requests and confirmed them, also dealing with my questions and minor changes perfectly. The day of the dinner she and her assistant arrived with everything they needed to cook an awesome meal. All we had to do was occasionally point out where some of our serving dishes and kitchen items were. When our guests arrived we were able to relax and enjoy a conversation for hours while Bonnie and her assistant dealt with all the food, served us, and then CLEANED UP ALMOST EVERYTHING. They even labeled and stored the leftovers in our fridge! Have I mentioned the food was delicious? It was! Rounding it all out, I felt we got good value for our money. I would not call it "inexpensive" but two people working hard for 6 hours (skilled labor at that), plus the prep time beforehand, and all supplies except the wine, salt and pepper? AND the ease of mind? Bargain. Oh yeah, almost forgot: She was very patient with our dogs, who spent most of their time under her feet until we finally put them away. Give her a try! I think you'll be pleased!

We used Diva B's Kitchen to cater our wedding reception and when I say she went above and beyond!! The cuisine was stellar in taste and presentation. She was attentive to our request and timely in responding to them as well. The absolute icing on the cake was her affordability. I will definitely be using Diva B's Kitchen again.

Al is always quick to answer to my emails and texts, and never fails to deliver. Even with some of my crazy last minute orders, if he can do it, he'll make it work for me. Can't ask for more from a preferred caterer! Love you, Al!

I have enjoyed working with Paola at the restaurant for the last 8 months. She has created an awesome work environment, and she really cares about her people. I guess that's why she has some many tenured people in the high turn over service industry.

I cannot begin to say how accommodating and patient Eric was throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding. I am not the best responder to text messages or phone calls, but Eric was a champ! Prior to the wedding itself, he was able to help us find a DJ in our price range! The only piece of advice I would give someone was to maybe line up the details of what you expect to the "t". What we got for our tasting was amazing - it was pot roast. It was even delivered all the way out to the boonies where we live, but on my wedding day, it didn't taste the same (still was delicious though), and it wasn't as roast-y as you'd think. It was more soupy and the meat was cubed, not sliced or chunked. Not a big deal as no one complained about it, but I had a certain "vision" for my wedding meal. Despite this inconsistency, I would definitely recommend using Eric for any catering events. The value, responsiveness, and patience that Eric brought to my event was impeccable and top notch.

Heather made a delicious cake for my wedding in April 2016. She was extremely easy to work with and very accommodating of my dietary restrictions. She was one of the only bakers we found who would even try wheat and sugar free! The cake was delicious too! My husband and I enjoyed it for our cake cutting and the next day! She really knows how to pair flavors well and make beautiful and yummy cakes! We'd work with her again if we needed to :)

I had an excellent experience with The Green Cart catering. They arrived on time (in fact, 10 minutes earlier) and the food was amazing. I had several questions about logistics and they were super communicative and easy to work with. Will definitely be using them again!!

I had a party planned and my caterers canceled last min. I found a flyer for Uncle Knock's and decided to call. They understood what I wanted and what I needed and surpassed my expectations for the party. My guest were blown away by the food and friendly service. You feel as if you have known them for years!

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.

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.
