I would definitely recommend Rocco for any of your catering/chef needs. Rocco helped me customize a menu for my husbands birthday dinner and was able to accommodate exactly what I needed and cater to all of my special requests. Rocco arrived on time and made the entire experience very enjoyable. He educated us on what we were eating and the preparation of it, and he was such a friendly guy, sharing many stories with us. Not to mention the food was amazing! I had salmon and my husband had lamb and both dishes were absolutely delicious. Rocco cleaned up as he went as well. It was awesome being able to have the restaurant experience without having to lift a finger or a foot. Rocco is awesome and we thank him for allowing us to have such a memorable night :)

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

Over the Labor Day weekend I hosted a family reunion for 31 people; some with significant dietary restrictions. Hyson proved to be up for the challenge of meeting all of our needs, providing incredibly diverse and exceptional tasting entree's, side dishes and deserts and all the while maintaining his calming presence. Hyson and his assistance Andrea filled our kitchen with wonderful aromas for the entire weekend, cleaned up beautifully between each meal and had each meal prepared and ready to be served promptly based on the schedule we had all agreed to previously. While Hyson's menu offerings and cooking are exceptional, the best part of working with him is his attitude and approach. Very well prepared and organized and yet able and willing to make changes along the way as needed. This is the second time I've used Hyson - the last being just a small dinner party for 10 - and he has proven quite capable of providing both the intimate formal dinner for a small group as well as multiple meals per day over a long weekend for a sizeable group of 31. For many of you reading this costs may be a huge consideration. I interviewed 3 different caterers before choosing Hyson; costs being a large consideration due to the varying economic standing of my my family members attending. Hyson proved very capable of being able to deliver exceptional meal and exceptional meal at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for someone to cook onsite - one meal of a 3 day weekend - you should at least have a conversation with this very talented, passionate and professional man. Most sincerely, Stuart

My client had a last minute corporate event and oddly requested Breakfast Burritos and Smoothies for their morning fare instead of the usual bagels, pastries, and coffee. After calling around and not getting any calls back from other catering places I found Kristine from This Moment. Thank God! They were responsive, professional, and provided our corporate meeting with the delicious start to the morning the client requested. Definitely will be calling Kristine again in the future!

Karla did a wonderful job catering breakfast and dinners for four days for our family and friends. She was very adaptable as we never knew until the last minute if there would be 6 people or 16 people at a meal! The breakfasts were enormous and she offered between six and eight dishes at every meal. Carla was punctual, professional and a pleasure to have in our home. She is super efficient and cleaned everything up before she left. I look forward to I look forward to using her for future events!

EVERYTING went so well from start to finish and the food was ONOLISCIOUS! The experience with working on the menu, headcount, budget was on point! Thank you to Jennie, Miguel and Wassim for a wonder SUPRISE 50th birthday dinner party for my husband. It has been a wonderful experience for our family and friends. My guest favorites was the Seafood fettuccine, even the little guest were munching on it. I have to say no one is perfect and its easy to miss a simple thing that can be easily communicated. Communication is the most favorite of my experience through this process. Thank you again!

good menu got to speak to the chef himself on several occasions, and he answered all my questions, a full service operation (can do plates and linens, etc) and nice menu selection with local organic food as a value of the caterer.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Vanessa and her team. To start, I booked her super last minute (literally the day before I needed her). I was scrambling to pull together and offsite meeting that got moved 200 miles away due to the tragic fires happening in Northern California. Vanessa came to my aid by helping me brainstorm a fun, interactive activity for the team at their offsite remote location. She set up an amazing wine and whiskey tasting event that the team just loved! Everything was tailored to perfection! She event created customized wine glasses that each member of the team got to take home with them. To make matters more complex, the location where the event was happened to be located in a remote with limited (to no) resources to catering, grocery stores, etc. Did I mention that I was coordinating this entire event remotely ?!?! Vanessa stepped up and offered to not only provide an awesome team building event, but picked up dinner, plate it to perfection, and bartended for the reminder of the evening. This was phenomenal!!! Working with her was not only a joy, but easy and smooth. I can't wait to work with her again. You would be a fool not to book her 100x over!

Les Marguerites est magnifique! Sergio was responsive and came up with menu options in our price range that were outstanding, including options for kids with nut allergies. The food--from the rillettes and salade frisée aux lardons to thé chicken galantine was excellent, as good as any French restaurant I've had here or in France. The poached pear tart for desert is the best I've had. Les Marguerites offers great, personalized service with outstanding, simply delicious food!

    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.
