Working with Noemi was wonderful! She has the experience, the knowledge and passion for what she does. I encountered many other caterers or chefs that were not as flexible or knowledgeable as she is!

My husband and I decided to get married rather quickly and only had 13 days to pull together all the details. Julie at Mermaid Catering was one of the first caterers to respond to my request for a quote. After exchanging a few messages via the Thumbtack site, Julie had a good idea of the type of food items we wanted and was very prompt in responding with a great menu and great price quote. We worked with Julie to secure a bartender. We supplied all the alcohol and Mermaid Catering supplied all the mixers, plates, plastic glasses, etc. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. Julie was fun and easy to work with, she was prompt getting back to me and arrived at our wedding with ample time to set up. Julie, you did a GREAT job, the food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. Thank you for working with me under such time restraints. We received many compliments on the food and presentation. Thank you SO much for helping to make our wedding perfect!

Troy & Team, It’s not quite one month later and we are still talking about the amazing presentation Personal Chefs in Box prepared for our reception. You were able to accommodate a lovely buffet in a private home that truly exceeded what I envisioned! Everyone working the evening maintained the perfect balance of professionalism with a personal touch and was more than willing to assist with all the minute details, even with last minute particulars I forgot to discuss ahead of time. The hot and cold courses were all delicious and left our guests raving. Judging from the amount of people who told me they went back for seconds and thirds, the seafood rolls and crab cake station were huge hits!! My personal favorite was the pork tenderloin and mango salad. Fantastic!! All told, we continue to receive compliments about how outstanding the food was and how enjoyable it was not only to taste a little of everything, but also to speak to you and listen to you describe the menu and preparation notes. Thank you for being a part of our special evening. Lea & Tom Weiss (August 14, 2014)

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.

First off, I want to say that Chef B is a total professional and culinary genius. We hired Chef B to cook for our wedding rehearsal dinner at our home. We had family and friends flying from all over the country and wanted to make sure they got a great meal of local foods that would be memorable and bring every one together, Chef B completely delivered. To add to the complexity, we live in Williamsburg and the power had been knocked out by the storm that hit on October 11th, with only the gas stove working, Chef B pulled off a miracle and delivered and incredible meal that fed over 40 friends and family by candlelight. Every one raved about the food, Chef B is not only talented but also extremely funny and can easily turn a situation like no electricity into a memorable one. I would absolutely recommend him for any event and we look forward to hiring him in the future for any other events we may have. Thank you to Chef B, we couldn’t have done it without you!!

Thank you Ross Catering. I had Ross Catering do several personal chef dinners for me. I can't cook a lick and I don't really like resturants so when dating I would have a personal chef cook a dinner. Always had great & impressive evenings.

    It's crazy to say, but "Bowe Woods Baked Goods" saved my life October 11, 2015. After being very disappointed with the caterer hired for the "green room guests" at my annual Big Eyed Blues Festival; Bowe Woods Baked Goods saved the day on day 2, with a beautiful dish of chicken and pasta in a decadently seasoned tomato sauce, toppled with fresh mozzarella cheese. Our guests were also presented with a salad that was not only ambrosia for your eyes but for your entire body. Absolutely delicious! Bowe Woods Baked Goods - made with love.

    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.
