Arturo is a joy to work with and makes delicious healthy foods. I've used his catering for a number of business lunches and they are always enjoyed. I especially love that he makes tamales with olive oil, and the veggie ones are superb.

Boris was AWESOME! We didn't necessarily have an event or catering, we were just beginners who wanted to get a good foundation for learning how to cook. Boris was extremely enthusiastic and answered all of our questions. He taught us numerous knife and cooking skills that we can use moving forward. Ingredients weren't overly complicated. He made multiple dishes for us out of a single chicken. The food turned out AMAZING! I highly recommend Boris for any of your cooking or catering needs. He is very professional and a true expert.

I had Cowabunga BBQ cater my summer wedding and it was AWESOME! It was fairly priced, beautifully set up and the food was AMAZING! The beans were out of this world! In fact, months after my wedding, my guests were still commenting on how good the food was. I will definitely have them cater for any other events that I have and highly recommend them for your events!

Polkadot Dinners is our favorite caterer. Rachel is one of the most professional caterers I know in the area. Her food is absolutely amazing and her presentation of her display of food just ties in with the theme of her menu which is a added plus. Definitely within anyone budget she can make it happen. Highly recommended.

We hired Mimi to cater out daughter's Bat Mitzvah. But what Mimi did was so above and beyond just catering. Mimi's food and presentation of food was delicious and beautiful. But in addition, she turned the party space into a gorgeously decorated space beyond the dreams of our daughter. Mimi was determined to make it the most magical event for our daughter and listened very carefully to all our daughter's ideas. We really couldn't believe Mimi's magic! She has the highest work ethic and delivers more than 100%! Great team of people backing her up as well. It was the best day of our daughter's life. Thank you mimi!

I use Nature's Bounty all the time for meetings I need to have catered. Their food is of exceptional quality (tasty and nutritious), and Lynn is always willing to work with in the limits of my budget. I really appreciate their flexibility (working around dietary limitations, arranging deliveries). Also, I know that when I tell people I'm serving Nature's Bounty, I'll be more likely to get people to the meeting. :-)

Michelle did our Baby Shower for us. At the very last moment we had to bring what was planned for an outside event to the inside due to the heat and she was able to do this with no problem. The presentation was outstanding and so beautiful! The food was delicious and such a variety of things to try. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to everyone. The entire experience was fantastic. Thank you again Michelle for making this event so special....

Working with Tameeka and Harve was a fantastic experience. The communication with Tameeka from start to finish was exceptional and super prompt! Tameeka was flexible and creative and worked easily within my budget....she is simply a joy to work with! The food was phenomenal....guests said the crab cakes were the best they'd ever had! All the food was expertly prepared and served. Tameeka and Harve were the perfect mix of professional and comfortable to have interacting with our family in our home. Not only can I wholeheartedly recommend Chrysalis Catering.....I will be using them again....SOON!

The People's Kitchen is very well diversed in the food industry. Everything they made you could taste was made from scratch and with love. Some people working in this industry just do it for the love of money. With The Peoples Kitchen is the opposite they make the food for the love of cooking and pleasing the guests.

They are the Truth! Chefs and owners Roger and Dee are my new go to caterers! Their warm, and friendly staff were extremely pro! I've been put in charge of a few company events before but NEVER has the food tasted this good! I mean ultimately that's what it comes down to is the food. They definitely love what they do and it shows. The best part of the day for me was when my boss waved at me from across the way to get my attention. Then he pointed at his plate and gave me a very enthusiastic thumbs up! That's never happened before. Three D Catering are the best!

      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.
