Paul and Stephanie were the caterers for our wedding reception this August. They did a really fabulous job putting together a menu that was perfect for a summer event. Their pricing was fair and affordable and they were receptive, friendly and conscientious. We'd recommend them highly!

Chantel and her team did an outstanding job of catering our event. The food was delicious (cooked to perfection and nice and hot with many choices), the service was great (the ladies were all warm and friendly) and the set-up and clean-up was flawless. I received many compliments from guests regarding the food. They will most certainly be my caterers of choice the next time the need arises and I would highly recommend them!

Attended a family reunion in Renton, Wa a few days ago. A last minute decision was made and we had to hire a catering service to accommodate about 50 ppl with in a day! A close friend of mine recommended K&F Catering which she hired for her wedding. So, I decided to give them a shot and I'm so glad I did! Not only was the food delicious, but they made sure to have everything set up in a super clean and timely manner! Definitely recommend these guys to anyone near Renton!!

Nola and her staff just did the catering for mine and my husband's wedding. From the first correspondence with Alie, everything was well thought out and they even handled all of our rentals. We requested a plated dinner for 80 guests and Nola and her team delivered perfection in the execution of serving our guests. We chose a Thai theme of flavors and the pork tenderloin was delicious. Her staff was friendly and very accommodating through our 5 hour event. If you want a caterer to execute your vision, I would definitely pick Nola's. Thank you Nola and her team! Kevin & Jeff

These ladies were great. They showed up on time, got things setup on time and were quite personable throughout. All the attendees of the party raved about the food and asked where I found the caterers. Several of them inquired for their contact information as well. Thank you for doing such a great job and for helping my event come off in stellar fashion !! Dallas Stewart

I can't say enough about the wonderful job Chef Emme Ribeiro did at my daughter's wedding. Guests raved about the food and about the friendly and efficient service. We couldn't have been more pleased! There were a few surprises--such as guests starting to arrive earlier than we'd planned--and Chef Emme crew went with the flow and made it all work as if it were arranged that way from the beginning. Chef Emme and crew know how to cook great food, throw an awesome party, and do all the things you’d assume of a professional caterer (they cleaned up so well the place was cleaner after they had left than it was before they got there). Would I consider Chef Emme’s services for future events? Absolutely! Thanks Chef Emme for contributing to a memorable and standout event. The best part is that days later, my husband is still feeling the afterglow from a magical evening.

Couldn't be more happier with my decision to go with Dogfather catering. Stephen went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went perfectly. He was more than happy to accommodate all our wants and needs and the whole process was stress free. Everyone loved his pizzas and the gourmet hot dog cart. Not to mention all his salads are delicious and a huge hit. Aside from his food, his staff is friendly and professional, they did all the could to make things run smoothly. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I still cannot thank him enough for all his hard work!

Mike did a great job catering a meal for my family (20 people). It was the first time both sides of the family were meeting, and we didn't want to have to stress about food. Mike brought everything by right on time with warming trays. Really made the evening go smoothly. The food was great! Mike had no trouble accommodating the gluten-free requirement. Be sure to ask about the flourless chocolate cake!!

On 8/8/16 K.I.S.S. was at our facility for our annual summer BBQ. Our menu included; smoked beef, smoked turkey, BBQ chicken, BBQ pulled pork, slow cooked beans, KISS onions, and green salad for 55 people. They were easy to work with, followed up 10 days in advance to our event, arrived on time for setup, and were ready to serve lunch on time. Keith and Tami have been catering our event for 3-4 years and have never let us down. Everyone loves the food and all the leftovers disappear quickly! They are professional yet relaxed and comfortable to support any event. I would highly recommend them!

    Cassandra and her team were amazing! She was so personable and such an ease to work and communicate with. The day of the event (a wedding) she showed up early and even helped us set up the venue before heading off to prep food. We opted for an itialian buffet and every dish was tasty, flavorful and spot on! I did select a couple gluten free options and having someone who is herself gluten free I think was a great choice! Cassandra knows just what to do with gluten free paths and our guests didn't even notice the difference. We will absolutely refer Cassandra to anyone in need of a caterer.

      Cierra Laub, Jarod Johnson, and Ash Candelario catered our wedding in August 2014. We had about 150 people to feed. The variety of dishes they prepared was wonderful. We had vegans, vegetarians, and others with no food specifications and there was something for everyone. My husband, our guests, and I were impressed with the quality of the food and service provided. Everything was refilled in a timely manner so no one was ever waiting to eat what they liked. The price to quality ratio for the food was very affordable. We had a budget and they did an amazing job to work within and even under that. We would have them cater again without hesitation.

          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.
