After emailing and leaving unreturned voicemails for two caterers that I won't mention, I found Artistic Touch Catering. Immediately, I knew that I was in great hands because of our interaction. Chef Michael dove right in and was present every step of the way! Being a foodie, the food is a major part of my day and I didn't want the typical Hors d'oeuvre. Chef Michael called me and I explained my vision to him and he just got it. When I mentioned that I wanted out guests to have a foodgasm when they tasted it. After emailing and finalizing a menu, my fiance and I scheduled a tasting, which was no additional charge. When we arrived, Chef Michael greeted us personally. Although it was our first time meeting, you would have never guessed it! He has such a sparkling personality and has a level of professionalism that I haven't seen in a long time. From that very first moment, I knew that I could let go and trust that Chef Michael saw vision and after that first bite, I realized that not only did he meet it, he exceed it! His food is PHENOMENAL, the service EXQUISITE! The table setting was beautiful, which he had set up in the kitchen. Many caterers will sit you outside of their kitchen area and you're unable to actually see the food prepared and plated. They did everything in front of us and seeing him work with his staff and the level of respect that have for each other is admirable! Chef Michael has the experience and the passion and it's evident in everything that he does! Chef Michael, Nicole and the rest of the staff at Artistic has not only set the bar high, but also given me peace of mind! Thank you, Chef Michael, Nicole and the rest of your amazing staff! I can't wait to see you on my BIG DAY!

We hosted a cocktail party for 30 people that my husband was hoping to impress. From planning, to set up, to menu, to take down, Steve and Carol Ann were perfect. Our guests are still talking about the amazing food. We will use them again for any event and highly recommend.

This was a great experience from the very beginning! Response from Juan was immediate when I inquired, we set up a meeting for him to check out the site, and he was exactly on time. Everything was outlined as to what was offered and how it would be served. Juan and his family showed up exactly on time the day of the party, the food was fabulous, the service spectacular, and we couldn't be more pleased that we had The Perfect SAIZ Taco (and family) at our celebration. Thanks Juan!

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!

What a tremendous experience from beginning to end. Anna-Liisa catered a graduation party for 50 guests - she tailored the menu to match my daughters favorites - arrived with a huge smile on her face and put on a dinner that all of my guests raved about. She is gracious, professional and a fabulous cook - I can't wait to work with her again.

We used Corporate Caterers for a Christmas dinner for our group of 100. We enjoyed the Caribbean chicken and steak combo with salad, rice, and chips. We had cookies and brownies for dessert. Everyone enjoyed the meal very much. The chicken was tender and juicy and the grilled steak was delicious. They provided two outstanding servers that were professional, helpful, and efficient. It was the easiest party I've ever thrown. They set up the buffet, served, and cleaned up. I didn't have to do anything. It was great. Inaie was wonderful from the first email she sent to bid for the party. She replied to all my inquiries quickly. She was very helpful as we planned the meal. I was really impressed that she called me the day of the party to confirm everything. I will use this company again! Thanks!

After receiving a great referral for a caterer, we hired RE Catering for a company event of 20 people. I have yet experienced a caterer who exemplifies the understanding and professionalism required to successfully prepare, serve and clean up an event as well as they did. We're a small S Corp. and appreciated this wonderful experience. The menu had many choices, food was outstanding and the service extraordinary. We became a regular customer and continued to use RE Catering for company lunches and various events. I would highly recommend RE Catering. You won't be disappointed!! Tiburon Design Torrance, CA

I hired them to make a specialized cake for me while I was out of state. We were going to Phoenix for a birthday party and wanted a special birthday cake for my husband. She was extremely responsive and great with showing me ideas. Her cake was beautiful and my husband instantly noticed she personalizes it for him by putting his badge number! She did a fantastic job!

We had an office party and needed a tasty treat. Flip and his team provided exceptional service, quick communication and DELICIOUS food. We've had them multiple times because everyone loves the food! We have done the frites and their sandwiches and salads. Everyone wants to have another meeting just so we can have Frites Street again!

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.

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.
