Food was very good & company takes pride in service provided. Our event featured a buffet with seasoned & very tender roast beef & the garlic mashed potatoes were creamy & flavorful. Guests were very complimentary. Dorrenda was easy to work with & very accommodating. I would definitely use this company again.

Anna was fantastic! My Brother hired her to cook food for me after I had surgery and she catered to my every taste pallet... her Tomato Soup had an elegant creamy texture and was spiced to a comfy perfection, a nicely roasted chicken accompanied the soup along with a delicious crunchy side of asparagus (which I couldn't get enough of). She even thru in some Christmas cookies to boot. Two days later, I found Enchiladas in the frig and they were absolutely to die for with a delicious red sauce. Later, she brought over Shrimp Scampi, steamed Articokes, Sloppy Joes and even went above and beyond the call of duty to get me some fresh fruit and cottage cheese. Not only is she a fantastic cook, but she took the time out to find out about me and my family and personalized the experience to make me feel cared for after a serious surgery over a holiday with no family around to help. I highly recommend her services to anyone and I am super grateful to my Brother for finding and choosing her on Thumbtack!!! Absolutely wonderful experience!

I had the pleasure of eating very delicious home cooked food by Someone'z in the Kitchen. We had mouth watering pot roast, rice, cabbage, greens, macaroni and cheese, baked chicken, green beans. I am getting hungry typing this. Wow!

Jim and Marcy catered my son's wedding. They really took their time with us to plan the menu. The main entrée was an A. MAZ. ING. pork tenderloin. So flavorful, tender and moist. If you're planning an event you should do yourself a favor and give Le Pique-Nique a try.

Awesome food! The meals he created were perfectly seasoned and tasty. I appreciated how easy they were to throw in the oven or pop onto the stove. The prep work was all done, My two faves are the roasted vegetables as the perfect side dish, and the stuffed shells with meat marinara...probably dishes I will ask for every time he comes to prepare food at my house! His pricing was very reasonable, especially since I am not the one shopping and the time saved when I come home from work!

We hired Barraza Trade for our Anniversary party back in late September 2015 and they did an incredible job! We chose the Ambassador Buffet and the Chicken Marsala was incredible! Andres, the owner, handled everything perfectly and was on-site with the staff to make sure we were well taken care of. I loved that they were full service and provided all the tablecloths and set up everything well in advance. I definitely will use them again and refer them. Nice hidden treasure :)

    We employed Chef BJ for a home holiday party. She offers a wide range of cuisines, we heard of her Cuban inspired menu and my wife chose from that. The roast pork, chicken,tamales, rice and black beans were delicious! I highly recommend her services!

    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.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
