Worked with Jon and Alicia on catering my daughters backyard wedding. They were the only caterers willing to not only provide me with amazing food, but were also willing to serve food that I had prepared as well. We are transplants from Louisiana and it was important for us to prepare some of our cajun recipe's and share our our heritage with our guests. Jon loved that we wanted to do that and didnt hesitate to accommodate us. Alicia came out a couple of weeks before the wedding to understand the setting and what exactly it was we envisioned. The day of the wedding Alicia and staff showed up and took over. I literally turned my home over to them and enjoyed every minute of my daughters wedding. Thank you Carefree Catering for a job well done!

I can't say enough good things about this company. Chef Michael and his assistants were professional from the first phone call. He accepted the job and kept in constant contact with me up to the day of the event. That made me feel very comfortable. He was flexible in altering the menu to suit my family's needs. He brings everything!!! Dishes, linens, glasses anything is possible. He set everything up, served, did dishes. But the most important was THE FOOD IS FABULOUS!!! Artistic Touch catered my Thanksgiving dinner for almost 20. Everyone raved about the taste and the abundance. The price was very fair. All took tupperware home. Chef Michael and his crew were extremely friendly and professional. I recommend this company to everyone!

Steve and Carol Ann catered our Thanksgiving Day meal for 15 guests. It was amazing! Real home cooking, easy to heat & serve and true professionalism. My 82 year old Dad was pessimistic about catered food on Thanksgiving and he was blown away with the taste and quality. My picky eater son said it was the best turkey he ever had. Unique Luxury Catering gave us a 5 Star restaurant quality home cooked turkey dinner. Thank you Carol Ann & Steve!

Juan Pablo and his staff did an amazing job for my husband's 40th birthday celebration. The tacos were awesome!!! And, his wife makes the best refried beans I have ever had. If you are a taco fan, Juan Pablo is the guy for your party. In working with him, he was professional, interacted well with our guests, and it is evident he takes great pride in his food. Juan Pablo cooked the food right outside in our backyard adding to the festive celebration. We would highly recommend The Perfect Saiz Taco for your next event.

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!

Christina was Great! We were a family of 13 visiting Phoenix for Thanksgiving and she gave us the red carpet. Collectively we decided on a menu for 2 days and she delivered without a hitch. We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and she was waiting for us at our rental home putting the finishing touches on our meal and it was GOOOOOD! For Thanksgiving Day she arrived at 11am to complete the meal for a noon meal time and we had a GREAT day of food, fun and family without worrying about cooking. I highly recommend Christina for any event or family function to ensure good food and an experience! Lastly, she provided a diverse portfolio of menu options, on Wednesday we had a Fajita bar, chicken wings with all the fixings/sauces made from scratch and Thanksgiving day we had your traditional Turkey and Dressing, ham with Mac-n-cheese, greens, salad and banana pudding and it was all great! Thanks Christina!

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...

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.
