I have been the beneficiary of Mr. Bloomhuff's cooking on numerous occasions. Whether he is catering a large group in a public venue, or serving a simple lunch, dinner or large party in a private home, everything I have had is fabulous. He is a versatile "world cuisine" chef; able to update and put his own unique stamp on classics from India, Thailand, North Africa and the Middle East. A consummate professional, he knows his way around a commercial kitchen and food and beverage logistics, and has the management skills to handle a large team, make it look easy, and carry off major events with outstanding results and no drama.

We hired Jeff and his staff for our wedding weekend. Friday we had a "meet and greet" BBQ and Saturday Jeff provided the food for our buffet style taco bar. We live in San Diego so we were really in the dark about Palm Springs area caterers. The food and the presentation was outstanding. We gave Jeff ideas for what we wanted and he took control and delivered all of it and more. He is a pleasure to work with and makes every effort to ensure the food is excellent and that everything runs smoothly (even when it's not his responsibility). Jeff helped with many components of our weekend, including putting us in touch with a reliable party rental business and culinary artist for the wedding cake. We are eternally grateful for Jeff and the Creating Catering staff for being part of our special weekend.

Excellent experience. We hired 1st class catering for Mexican food for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Michael is very easy to communicate with and responds quickly. All the pre-event coordination was seamless, and the day of was even better. Michael delivered the food early, helped us set it up and get the chaffing dishes situated, and left plenty of disposable supplies for the meal. Best part was the Mexican food was delicious! All of our guests raved about it. Definitely would hire him again!

My husband and I were the lucky recipients to be invited to a dinner party that Chef Woody catered. The entire meal was delicious and the food presentation was beautiful. Chef Woody was kind enough to share his recipes and answer any question that the guests had. My husband and I would highly recommend Chef Woody.

We hired Garlic Girls Catering to provide a post-wedding lunch for 40 people. I could go on forever about how great Amy was in every way--responsive to our needs, creative menu suggestion that fit our event perfectly, fabulous food in presentation and taste, reasonable cost. We had exactly the amount of food we needed. Everyone--from grandparents to kids, guys, gals--everyone loved the food. I got lots of compliments, I wish Amy could have heard them, but she kept quietly behind the scenes for the entire event. We had an uncertain schedule because of post-wedding photos and didn't actually eat until a couple of hours after I had asked Amy to have the food ready. She had planned a perfect menu that was delicious nonetheless. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending her catering services for any event. Thanks Amy!!

Mr. Marble has done several events for our family. He has always done a standout job and one I can depend on for any food event. He is professional in every way and I personally know that he comes from a family who prided themselves in the deliciousness and the presentation of their food. He catered my daughter's wedding in my home a few years ago. The food and presentation was superior. Mr Marble is definitely at the top of my list when it comes to catering.

        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.
