My whole office loved the food. Thank you for making such a wonderful Christmas dinner for our office. I tried helping a few times, and your crew wouldn't let me help one little bit - very professional and courteous. We are a very busy office and every one made time to come in. There was plenty for seconds to any who wanted more and I even took food home for another treat! I wanted my office team treated special and reward them for their hard work all year long. Your catering and service met and exceeded my hopes. Put us down for every year!

Dorrenda and her crew were absolutely amazing! They helped us bring together our special day. They go the extra mile to ensure the party goes off without any hiccups. One of our cake decorators forgot the knife we were going to use to cut the cake at our wedding. Dorrenda came to the rescue, going to the store buying a knife and then proceeded to cut and serve the cake for us. Dorrenda is simply the best. ALSO guests were raving about how delicious the food was and we still hear compliments about it.

Chef Michael brought with him a server and two others to help him with the meal. All four people were extremely professional and lovely to have in the home. They set the table beautifully and were so attentive to our needs, including those of my young children. The food was delicious and varied, based on previous conversations of what we were looking for. Our Christmas day was so enjoyable due in large part to Chef Michael and his crew! I would not hesitate to hire him again for another special day.

We had a lovely Christmas Party catered by Unique Luxury Catering. Chef Steve helped me pick out the perfect menu for our venue. Carol Ann coordinated everything: chairs, tables, linens, food, ice. Everything was included which made my job easier. Chef Alice prepared items which satisfied us all, including those that were vegetarians. The service was incredible. They were friendly and took care of all of our needs. Great job! Rose

Chef Vic did a fantastic job catering our Thanksgiving dinner for 30. He delivered a hot & fresh meal to our counter at 2:00 on Thanksgiving Day--not many caterers are willing to work on the holiday but Vic & his staff made sure we were taken care of & the meal was better than anything I could have accomplished in my home with days of preparation. It was definitely homemade and the price he gave us was more than worth it! The chain stores & grocery stores we looked into were slightly cheaper but a lesser quality by far & required all the heating up & transferring to dishes that makes Thanksgiving so much work to begin with. Can't say enough about how happy we were & our guests were all impressed as well!

Anna was very professional and her food is outstanding. She did my rehearsal dinner and everything turned out perfect! She was on time, she responds quickly to messages and the food was always delicious! She has cooked for me on several different occasions and the food always exceeds expectations and all her deserts are to die for! To this day my family can not stop talking about how good her food is. She cooked us Christmas dinner one time (prime rib with horseradish sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, and green beans) and to this day we have family members asking if she can cook for us again because they loved the meal so much!

Christine and her team have catered many events for us, family & friends previously. The food and overall experience are always nothing less than stellar! The attention to detail and quality of food are fantastic! This is why we keep her busy. One of the best caterers on the west side by far. John T

Emma was able to take a picture that I had off of Pinterest and create a cake that I loved! I am Fostering to Adopt my tiny granddaughter and having pictures for her to know how loved and celebrated she is was extremely important to me and the cakes were the centerpiece of our celebration! As with any custom artistic projects ~ they cost extra. It was absolutely worth it, plus the cakes were moist and tasted great. I am sure that simpler cakes than fondant would be less expensive and fabulous too! I will be using Emma for all our celebrations with specialty cakes. We even live in the East Valley and she packed them and gave us such great advice on the importance of absolutely keeping the cakes cool that they were perfect when we got home!

Amy and was an incredible caterer. The food was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. She provided delicious selections for both the meat eaters and the vegetarians. We decided to go with cold foods for many reasons and this was a perfect choice for our party. Thank you for everything Amy, I will utilize your services for all of our catering needs.

Laken Deal runs a great ship. She came down with strep throat and had Jenna fill in for our Premier Launch Event at a one-of-a-kind estate in Sedona. Not only did Jenna come prepared, she wowed the guests. Absolut Bartending is top notch and absolutely delivers! On behalf of ILoveSedonaRealEstate.Com- we LOVE Absolut Bartending...

I have recently had two catered parties at Vito's, both of which were handled perfectly. Chelsea Berhorst was my contact and she went above and beyond to make my events a success. The food, the value, her work quality and professionalism was over the top and I would highly recommend Vito's for any party of any size.

    There is nothing I'd change. JL Smokehouse has the most incredible smoked pork, top notch! Melts in your mouth and has this amazing smoked flavor like nothing else. James is the best too! I'd recommend JL Smokehouse to anyone. I cater them whenever I get the chance.

      I work for a company that is licensing the Progresso name and launching a new line of products. To help build product awareness, we hosted Back to School Lunch Events for teacher conferences and PTA boards across the country. I had the great pleasure of working with Lorelei for one of these events in Queens Creek that hosted ~85 attendees. Our situation was more challenging than typical events because we were using our frozen pastas and sauces which required Lorelei to redeem coupons at Albertsons grocery store in exchange for boxes upon boxes of these products. Given the limited quantity of these products at individual stores – she had to go to multiple stores to pick up enough to cover this event - not an easy task with an already busy schedule. In addition, Lorelei did a phenomenal job of staying in contact via phone and email (being that I was catering from a different state) and always providing timely responses to my questions. What amazed me the most was her enthusiasm and flexibility given the challenges – including the event coordinator cancelling 3 days before the event! I was beyond stressed out but it didn’t deter Lorelei – she managed to find a solution, coordinate with the school and pull the event together AND accommodate an additional 30 attendees in the 11th hour! She truly saved the day. Lastly - she arrived/set up in a timely manner, the food presentation was terrific and the costs were incredibly reasonable. The event attendees raved about everything. All around it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend working with Lorelei and Lickity Splits Catering.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
