    My experience tasting you food definetly everything I hope it would be by the pictures you shared. Service was prompt in all fresh ingredients . The food was prepared with all healthy and tasty seasonings. I came to order the shrimps and gravy. After talking to another customer as I waited for my order he suggested the Turkey burrito . I couldn't believe what I was witnessing in my mouth. As you can see from the pictured you posted I was in pure delight in happiness. Good food prepared by good people. I would recommend your food . Soul in loved at the hands of a good brother. The salads are to die for as well.

        Every time I have attended an event where Pat’s Katerin has catered the food, it has been nothing but fabulous. The food is always good and hot. A few of my favorites are the assorted cheeseballs, chicken salad, and macaroni & cheese. Their staff are very friendly, professional and accommodating.

        Harvey's brought their cart to my husband's 50th birthday surprise party. They came highly recommended by a friend and they did not disappoint. Harvey and Dorothy were very easy to work with and our guests enjoyed the variety of menu choices to pick from. Having the cart was a fun and unique addition to the party! I did not have to worry about preparing the food or cleaning it up...they were very organized, had delicious food and confidently handled our crowd!

        Just imagine having a head chef show up in your kitchen, what a treat. My wife and I were looking for something different and exciting for our anniversary. We knew exactly what we were looking for; delicious food, special treatment and a high level of service. We obtained the services of a premier personal chef. My wife and I had a wonderful evening at home thanks to Chef Gray. He brought all the food and ingredients, all the pots, pans and cooking utensils, beautiful table setting and glassware. Chef Gray took over my kitchen and prepared us a wonderful three course meal. He was the shining example of a highly trained professional chef. He transformed our dining room into a "Five Star Restaurant" with his personalized and attentive service. Chef Gray is a great listener and takes your dietary restrictions into consideration to customize your meal. He took care of everything, assisted with the menu, cooked for us, provided exceptional service and cleaned up the entire kitchen. Thank you Chef Gray for making our anniversary so uniquely special.

        We loved having Kathi's help with our evening meals while my husband was deployed. She helped make our meal plans and organize the grocery needs, she prepped and cooked all meals from start to finish and left my kitchen spotless. She even modified her dishes to meet my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. She helped us find kid-friendly meal ideas and always made sure they were healthy and varied. We enjoyed all the food she prepared for us and already miss her very much!

            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.
