We used Veronica's Cuisine to cater a company event. The food was on time, and it was fantastic! We received nothing but compliments on the amazing taco bar, and several people asked for their information so they could hire them for their own parties! They were great to work with, and were very responsive every time we communicated. We will absolutely be hiring them again! Awesome experience!

Chef Alex was amazing to work with! The taco salad bar was perfect for our wedding and we had so many guests give us their compliments. He even went out of his way to bring a dinner plate to our bartender who was slammed during the reception. He was also very quick to respond to my emails and always a joy to talk to!

We had a taco bar for our retirement party. Even though Flavors had a prior commitment they were able to fit us in! There was plenty of food for all and it was delicious. Thank you for making the lunch the easiest part of the party planning!

We has Chef Mike Roberts cater our office summer party this year. While he did show up later than scheduled, he was able to set up quickly and lunch was served on time. The food was wonderful!!!! We did a taco and nacho bar, with the addition of chicken kabobs and some side salads. The party was a few weeks ago and I still have people telling me how much they enjoyed the food!! I would definitely recommend Chef Mike and would use him again!

Jenna cooked the most delicious foods for a family reunion I hosted. She cooked at my house, don't ask me how she easily managed to cook calmly and efficiently as if she cooks in that location everyday. My family LOVED the food, her dessert, and her margaritas, second to none!!! I would highly recommend Jenna to make any event tasty and very special and unique.

I was planning a fancy date night with my husband, and was looking for a chef to whip up something delicious and elegant. I originally thought Rex and Cathy were strictly dutch-oven chefs, but it turns out they're much more than that! On one day's notice, they planned and executed a meal of bacon-wrapped filet mignon with multiple side dishes and dessert, all prepared in my tiny apartment kitchen. They laid the table beautifully, served us, and cleaned everything up afterwards. It was the experience of a lifetime.

Great catering service for a major fundraising event, with close to 300 guests. Chalia was great to work with. She remained calm at all times, and our guests loved the food that she and Juan made. She offered a very nice tasting opportunity in advance while we were choosing caterers, and we were sold! Would happily use The Brulee Catering again.

Shahene came to our school and taught culinary lessons to students of all ages. He showed us how to make sushi, dolmathes, homemade ice cream (the rosewater was a delightful touch), pumpkin pie from scratch and much more. He also taught the students about hygiene and knife safety. The food was incredible and he's a great teacher. Very patient and he really knows his stuff!!

I met the owner Paul at the Salt Lake city airport before my flight back to Dallas. We talked for a little before he let me know he owned a dessert catering company. He gave me a couple samples before I boarded my flight. I had the salted caramel cookie and peruvian chocolate brownie. I have to say, hands down the best brownie I've ever had. I just wished I had milk on the flight. Definitely will be calling him the next time I'm in Salt Lake City.

Snap Daddy's has catered a couple of events for me. One was a dinner we host for our clients (75 people in attendance) and the other was a networking event (125 in attendance) where hors d'oeuvres were served. The catering was handled professionally and the staff is very friendly! Both events went very well and they received rave reviews from everyone. Highly recommend their services and even though it states "BBQ", this isn't your traditional BBQ catering company. They can cater and accommodate any occasion since their menu of items is so diverse.

We recently enjoyed a Rotary fundraiser event catered by Dickey's Barbecue Pit. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Good food makes an event memorable and impacts the overall success of an event. Veronica Heap, Catering Manager, did an outstanding job. It was a pleasure to have Dickey's as our caterer.

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.
