I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

I don't even know where to begin! Jose is an amazing caterer and I am so happy we hired him for our wedding this past Friday. When we were first tasting caterers food they all seemed metiocre but Joses was amazing! We hired him on the spot! Not to mention he was the most reasonable price! Then everyone was making me nervous saying that catered food is never as good when they have too cool it in large quantities (we had 180 people). When we got to the reception everyone was already eating appetizers and happy. When Jose spotted my husband and I he came up to us and told us he had made us each an appetizer plate and if we wanted it. Then he came up to me to make sure I wanted dinner served when I had originally asked. I did and he brought us the first 2 plates. The food was amazing! Just as good as I remember! Everyone was so pleased and kept talking about how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! That was exactly what I wanted! His bartender was amazing and all his staff was so friendly. The setup looked nice and professional. The drinks he brought were great and everyone was talking about how great the mint water was! Then I ordered cheeseburger sliders and French fries to be served late night and they were amazing! He even brought wings and everyone was so excited! They went fast and by the time I got over there everything was gone. Jose told me let me get your plates and pulled out two foil covered plates. He always thought of us first and without him I wouldn't have eaten. All day everything had hiccups and my rentals were late, everything was slightly wrong except Jose! He really came through and went above and beyond. I will definitely hire him again for any events and recommend him to the fullest!

Chef Mumsie and team are the best caterers I have ever worked with...everyone at the event raved about the food...staff was professional and efficient. Chef Renee presented the food and we all began to immediately drool over her signature items. She created unique flavors and items that we had never seen before and couldn't wait to try. OOOHHHHH and when we did!! I can't recall when i've tasted things that just made me want to close my eyes and dance... MMMMMM Mmmmm mmmmm. They took care of everything with magnificent precision. Arrived early, set it all up without a word and fed 80 picky ladies to perfection. The price was very reasonable...you cannot get this caliber of service excellence for this price anywhere. They even helped me select the venue based on what I was looking for since they were familiar with all the best sites. The venue needed no Insurance documentation because of their great experiences in working with Chef Mumsie and her team. If I could I would give them 7 stars and it still would not be enough!!!! If you want OUTSTANDING food and FABULOUS customer service then you're here. . . they will take care of everything without missing a beat and leave you and your guests with very happy palates with delicious food. THANK YOU ladies for the BEST High-Tea we've ever had!!!! We wil definitely be hiring again for our needs !!! Kisses

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

My experience with Alexis and So Divine was nothing short of DIVINE! She swept right into my last minute event and coordinated all the pieces efficiently, showed up early the day of with friendly staff, set up a beautiful display that had DELICIOUS food! My entire company has been talking about it since our Monday event--and have requested her to return for other events. We already have her booked for January. Alexis is an exemplary business woman that follows up, follows through and has amazing tasting food! Plus she brings ziplock bags and plastic so that her staff can make to go plates for people. Our entire staff was happy--and she made me look amazing. I highly recommend So Divine Catering for your event needs--especially if you like flavorful food with a smile.

I last minute decided to host a birthday dinner party and was in need of a caterer asap. After submitting my hopeful requirements and details for my party, Steven reached out to me immediately and was the only message I received that had personalization within the text. He truly was reaching out to ME vs copy and pasting his business portfolio. We had a call immediately and within 1-2 days had the menu selection squared away. I gave him very simple directions - 'I love Mediterranean food'... he came back with a Croatian Michelin star restaurant inspired menu with hints of Morocco. He was super communicative and informative on each dish and my party needs. The food was delivered right on time in serving dishes with serving utensils and everything was absolutely beautiful, clean and quick. The two employees that delivered the dishes were also extremely sweet and efficient. Steven normally does larger events, from what I've seen on his website, but my get together was only 20 people and he made it feel so special and easy. So, big or small event, Steven Segar is definitely the catering route you should go.

Food First Events & Catering Co. recently did two events for my company and the feedback was amazing! The food was stepped up in such a way that the impact was noticeable. The breakfast spreads that were delivered on time and set up impeccably were delicious with a few notable homemade pastry items that left people talking! I experienced nothing but professionalism, reliability and class from this experience. Also, working with David to make sure I met my budget was extremely easy and he was eager to help meet my needs without compromising quality. I highly recommend!

This event went off without a hitch. Mobile Caterer was on time, on point and on the ball for the entirety of the event. They rolled with the changes I had and made the event a complete success. The food was incredible. The set up was beautiful. They went above and beyond considering they had the best value of any of the caterers who responded to my project request. It was truly seamless and effortless.

Zeke Casas catered my daughters Quinceñera, he made Chili verde, rice, beans, fresh salad, an amazing salad dressing, rolls, and salsa. So many people loved the food.. so much flavor with every bit.. there was not one thing without flavor.. the family rated his food as the most amazing, delicious, dish they have tasted. Zeke and his crew are very respectful, helpful, and caring. They take the time out to make sure everything was to your liking.. they left the hall kitchen spotless, like no one had ever used it.. I give Zeke and his crew 10 stars.. amazing job, amazing food, and I recommend him for your next event... never can go wrong with a great caterers..

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I have hired other caterers in the past, but none of them come close the experience I had with Chef Lofthouse and his team. Chef Lofthouse created a spectacular menu and it was delicious to eat. He and his team took care of all of the planning and set-up for the event. They served perfectly on time, and gave me and my guests such great service, that my guests are still emailing me to get Chef Lofthouse's phone number. You are missing out if you don't have him cater your party!

Bill Blackburn was extremely professional, responded quickly to our requests, was easy to get ahold of, and worked with our unusual event needs. He was on time and made sure no details were missed. His pricing was reasonable, and the service was excellent! After the event we were asked by numerous people who the caterer was and how we found him. We were told by everyone that he didn't miss a beat!

I am thrilled to share with you my experience with Chef LaTay. First it must said, her food is AMAZING. In Jan 2015, I married the love of my life; I had a small backyard wedding of about 75 ppl total and Chef LaTay catered the food for my special day. We decided to go with Tri-Tip Roast, Fully loaded mashed potatoes, Green Beans, and Salad. Her food was a hit. Delicious and memorable. My guests were happily fed and pleased with every bite and so was I. In the past, Chef LaTay would do weekly orders every Friday and Saturdays where she would deliver her meals to those local near her. It was a huge meal that came with dessert and a drink, worth the price indeed. That’s where/when I would also have some of her other delicious foods. My personal favorites are her Macaroni and Cheese, her Salmon, her Enchiladas, her Chicken (every way she makes it), and her Oxtail. She also makes wonderful tasty desserts. Her cakes are all homemade and are to die for. I love her Chocolate cake and her frostings are the best! Better than any other cakes I’ve had. And I can’t forget the dessert my husband and I always ask for throughout the year, Banana Pudding! Again, AMAZING! It is an honor to have Chef LaTay’s food be a part of my life. Every delicious bite makes you wish there was no such thing as getting full. Having her for your events or for a small special occasion, you won’t be disappointed. Chef LaTay is very creative with her food and service. She comes with class and excellent customer service. She makes sure you get what you asked for; just very professional with a welcoming loving spirit. Chef LaTay It’s Made Devine is worth your time to try her food, because I guarantee you, you’ll be asking for more!

Provided Thanksgiving services for an intimate family gathering. Staff was professional and arrived on time. The food arrived hot and ready to eat. The turkey was extremely tender and flavorful. They offer large portion sizes, we had so much leftovers for black Friday. We will definitely use La Perry Catering in the future.

Wendell catered a private event, for a group of all vegan / plant based guests. The food was phenomenal and some of the best plant based food I've had. There was a large variety of flavors and dishes - greens, tempeh, tofu, seitan, tons of veggies, quinoa and more. The variety of food was so good, I am looking to bring him as a private chef for a series of wellness retreats.

John and his amazing team are real miracle workers! Extremely professional from our first conversation through the entire event, John was a delight to work with. Reasonable prices, the food was great (I will definitely be visiting their restaurant), and completely self sufficient. I didn't have to worry about anything! Craftsman Catering barbecued on sight, providing a little entertainment and a few samples right off the grill for guests that wandered by. Not only were the main dishes phenomenal but I still have guests raving about the coleslaw and other sides! Thank you so much John & Craftsman team! I'll be seeing you soon!

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.
