Bar Tending Services was Excellent. The Bar Tender arrived right on schedule and immediately went to work setting up the Bar. The Bar Tender was able to quickly make all of our desired mixed drinks for our guests and was very capable with the alcohol and mixes. I will use Party Services and Staffing for upcoming events.

We had an amazing service from Rob. He helped create special drinks and was flexible when I needed him to come earlier than requested. Have had many bar services and this was the best so far. Thanks Rob and company!

Mia's Martini was absolutely wonderful. Mia's Martini worked closely with us before, during & after the sweet 15 to provide fantastic bar-tending services. Not only Mia's Martini was professional and responsive but they are extremely helpful in planning on how much alcohol to buy, even if you want to design a signature drink , and working with the supplies we had. Gio the Bartender was fantastic, provided great service and also had a very enthusiastic personality. If you need bar-tending services I highly recommend Mia's Martini.

Jose at Mr Worldwide Catering, did the catering for an 80th birthday party for us on March 28 2015, we did tacos, rice, beans, he also did fruit, cheese, and veggie platters for us. The food was all excellent, the service was awesome, was there when he stated he would be, did all the set up and clean up of food. Really enjoyed the professional way things were done. Everyone at the party raved about the food, and how nice everything was set up. He even had flowers for his food table to really made it look great. I hope I have the chance to use him again, for other things this is one TOP NOTCH CATERING SERVICE.

I was really under the gun preparing for my wifes birthday party and Andrew relieved a lot of my stress with his bar and event knowledge and guiding me on what to provide. He was on top of everything from the moment I contacted him. Andrew was absolutely amazing!! He put together a bar menu of specialty cocktails, he provided all the additional supplies needed, everyone loved his personality, he went beyond what was expected of him, and he truely made Sharon's birthday special. I most certainly will be hiring him in the future. I highly recommend him to everyone in need of a bartender/mixologist for their party or event!!

I hired Jill's bartending service for an event I was hosting in which we had no idea what kind of drinks we wanted. Jill was great because she took charge and helped us create a perfectly themed drink menu that was appropriate for our event. During the event, she was awesome! Not only did she keep the drinks coming but she kept the attendees entertained. Jill was truly everything you want your bartender to be!

The best bartender EVER! Shawn was on top of the planning, offering other services, such as bar rental, garnishes, etc. He thought of everything so that I didn't have to! He even brought the ice to keep everything cold! I would recommend Shawn anytime and will definitely hire him again for our next party!

Wow what a wonderful Engagement Party we had at our home !! Making it even more fabulous was the outstanding bar tending service of Frankie J. We had over 150 people so he brought a back up bartender Carlos who was just as wonderful. People still can't stop talking about the VIP service Frankie J provided. Remembering many family members cocktails and walking around replenishing their glasses through out the night. The service he provided went way beyond a normal bartender for hire. I am so so so happy I chose Frankie J over all the other choices that Thumbtack offered. I will never hire anyone else and I've had many many parties. He was the very very BEST !!!!!!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

Hiring Steven and his phenomenal crew was the best decision we could have made for our event! We were tremendously impressed by Steven's professionalism and flexibility to all of our requests, he is an incredibly smart and resourceful businessman and was able accommodate our many brand-standards (for a very attractive price) and wow our guests with the results. The food was simply delicious, the service was exceptional (very warm and affable) and the set up/breakdown was seamless even in our small half kitchen and office space! If you're looking to work with a professional and provide a seamless catering service at your next event, I urge you to hire Steven!!

Professional and exquisite meal presentations and staff; very reliable; very reasonable; always go the extra mile to accommodate special requests. Wait, did I say that they're reliable. I've already recommended them to 2 other agencies and they are equally impressed with Feast Catering's exceptional services.

We loved the level of service and the food was amazing! Our guests loved every course. The chef used fresh ingredients and each dish was deliciously prepared and well presented. The entire staff created a wonderful experience for us and our guests. They were professional, courteous, friendly, very accommodating, and completely self-sufficient. We didn't have to lift a finger. Even the planning stage was made easy. Bill was extremely responsive, very professional, and reliable. They were reasonabley priced, as well. I would highly recommend them.

Ok let me just say that I am beyond happy I chose Leah for bartending services for my engagement party recently!! We had a guest count of about 200 and she was professional from the start, extremely helpful and outgoing and she KNOWS her cocktails. She even ended up making me a signature Bride cocktail which I may or may not have had way too many of :) My guests all could not stop asking me who the “sweet and awesome” bartender was and I am SO happy to have found her!

    I had a party at my home a few weeks back and wanted to take a couple minutes to give some feedback about my experience. From the moment I reached out to inquire for information, I got a response right away and was given all the details about the date, time, pricing and payment information for booking them at my event. Dulce was so helpful with giving me some good ideas for drinks to have on my menu with some of their top sellers (which were a MAJOR hit for my guests!) The day of the party the bartender arrived 45 minutes early and set up the cutest bar area to serve the drinks! She was very professional and got along great with my guests! Drinks were also great and myself, my husband and my guests had a wonderful experience! So happy that this wasn’t one of the sources of stress I experienced on the day of my event. Hands down would recommend to anyone looking for a professional, high end service to add some class to their party without having to worry about doing it themselves.

I would highly recommend her to be your planner. Thank you Esther!!!

    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.
