Chef Ray was fantastic. He emailed within the hour after my submission to thumbtack. We had a rehearsal dinner for 70 at a location in Avondale. He listened to what I was looking for and then made suggestions to work with all the dietary needs we had. I was doing everything long distance from Texas and he made it as easy as it could be. He knew my budget and he did not encourage me to go beyond it and worked within my means. He ALWAYS answered his phone and communicated so well throughout the whole process. He arrived timely and had us ready to go with hot steaming food in plenty of time. That is all the logistics of things, the best part is the food was out of this world. We chose the roasted pork, garlic potatoes, green beans and house salad. The portions were very large and all night I continually had people asking who our caterer was and how delicious the food was. The meat was juicy with a wonderful sauce (so many times when catering for a large group the meat is dry), and their was an abundance so we were sure not to run out. If you are trying to make a decision, hands down Chef Ray is the way to go. He gets an A++++++++++ from this gal.

The people of Eat Well Market are amazing. The food is always local, always fresh, and always delicious. They offer opportunities for school age children to help in their garden in exchange for after-school snacks. It is truly a blessing to have them in the neighborhood and I will always be a loyal customer!

Silver Spoon Catering is operated by a lovely husband and wife team. They did a phenomenal job with catering our clinic's open house event after being requested at relatively short notice. Detrick and his wife stayed to make sure everything ran smoothly and even helped bar-tend. The food was great and our guests loved it! We will definitely do business with them in the future.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
