I would have them send me pics of each plate as they came out to be honest. I would want to see them.  I think the survey is the best way. Like a secret ballot vote for a caterer.

If you can’t do a tasting yourself, then have someone go who shares your tastes in food as closely as possible and has a clear vision on exactly what you want and what you don’t.

I couldn’t go to mine so my mom and dad went.

 

I trust her taste completely! I think its a good idea for not more than two people to go because everyone is going to have their own opinions based on their own preferences (IE steak cooked too much, not enough. Too much salt, not enough, would like it crisper, smaller etc) and then it will be hard to tell what should be changed. Choose someone you trust to have a good pallet.

 

If there is more than one tasting the same people should go to make the comparison.  You certainly could have them take photos of the presentation as mwitter mentioned so you could see the food.
