Ms. Marie is very sweet and will work with you to try and do what is necessary from beginning to end. The only part of the Wedding food that wasnt exactly like what we hoped it would be was one of the appetizers (mini biscuits with ham) but maybe we should have clarified how it was done before choosing it. The only other thing was the beef I was told by some people was rather tough. However, the salmon was fantastic as well as the mashed potatoe bar. The sweet tea was just like I like it!!! Other than that we were very pleased with her service and staff was friendly.

Jason did an amazing job at our wedding! Couldn't be happier with our service. Can't say thank you enough to them for making our day that much better! The bbq chicken was amazing and everyone complimented us on the food. Also the servers were amazing along with the bartender. Our night was made perfect with their help.

Melissa was exceptionally helpful with all aspects of catering our event and really went out of her way to be accommodating. Especially when my daughter wanted to order something off the menu and then again when our venue changed two weeks before the wedding. She really came through for us with a delicious taco bar and helped us navigate the issues that come along with such an unexpected change. Both the food and service were outstanding.

We had Bikini Panini cater my wife's suprise birthday party. Laura and her husband did a fantastic job, and our friends and family couldn't believe we had a food truck on site. Laura provided appetizer trays inside, and guests went outside to order food. Her husband worked the "front of the house" and was friendly with our guests while Laura worked the "back of the house" and cooked all the food, etc. These two were the nicest folks, and not only did our guests LOVE the food, but they loved Laura and her husband. They were kind, personable, and friendly. We loved hearing about their vacations all over the world (some of the inspiration for their menu items) as well as the story behind the truck. Hard to believe they are new to the food truck biz - it felt like they'd been doing it a lifetime. I can't wait to see them again at Ardent, Lickinghole Creek, or another private event. We actually contemplated going to Ardent the next night just to eat their food again. These two were 6 stars on a scale of 5. Could not have been more happy with their service, food, and price.

Tanisha Stewart is relatively new to the catering business right now so she is experiencing growing pains. She was contracted to cater a 30 person party and overall did a great job. The food was outstanding and there were ample quantities of everything. The only hiccup to the whole experience was that she had got lost on the way to the event and was a little late on the delivery. Tanisha made the transaction right buy refunding the original gratuity with many apologies. I truly think that there were extenuating circumstances that day and she handled the issue very professionally. I would definitely recommend her service to others and use her services again in the future.

    We had them cater a 50 person office party this past Christmas, and it was a great success! The food was great tasting, they insisted we take the left overs home so it would not go to waste. They even helped me tailor the menu to address food allergies, overall an amazing experience.

    So sorry in being so long doing this review. I had to arrange this event from a distance and didn't get to attend myself so when I got rave reviews regarding lunch I knew it was because Aaron Turner delivered everything as promised. He was friendly to work with, there was a great variety of food to meet many needs and it was all delicious. Wonderful experience!

        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.

        How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

        Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

        Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

        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.
