Chef Rocco did an amazing job of cooking a private dinner for our anniversary! It was great to work with him - I had a rough idea of the types of dishes I wanted and he put it all together to make a delightful meal. He was very flexible and responsive to our preferences - for example putting together a low-gluten gnocci option, as well as a decaf tiramisu - which was the best tiramisu we've ever had! I especially liked the smoked salmon appetizers, the prosciuotto wrapped pears were delicious, enjoyed the yummy gnocci texture, and best of all was the tiramisu for dessert! He was also a friendly conversationalist, put together a nice food option for our baby, and did a thorough cleanup after finishing! Altogether a perfect anniversary!

Taqueria Cazadores catered a party for us, a school fundraiser for 70 parents. Showed up early, food ready on time, amazing reviews from the guests for the taco bar and especially the churros. Several of our guests were gluten-free and vegitarian...all were satisfied​. We'll use them again.

We hired Sat to provide dinner for a party of 10 at a vacation home in Dillon Beach. It was an intimate wedding celebration, and Sat fit right in. Not only was the food excellent, but Sat was very personable. We really enjoyed having him there, cooking dinner and serving appetizers as we had our celebration, and then serving us dinner. Sat was very accommodating in customizing the menu for us. We had meat eaters, a vegetarian, and two people who required gluten free food. The main course offerings included steak and lobster, chicken, and a vegetarian special. The presentation of the food was beautiful, and Sat did an excellent cleanup job after dinner. The price seemed more than fair for the outstanding service provided. We will happily hire Sat again next time we want a meal provided by a personal chef!

Stephanie was amazing! I would recommend that you hire her for any of your catering needs. She catered a lumberjack brunch for my son's first birthday party and everyone raved about how the delicious the food was. She even made a special gluten free cinnamon bread for our guests with allergies and even are non-allergy guests loved it! From initial contact to food drop off everything was seamless and easy. She is super responsive and helpful with menu planning. On the day of the event I expected that she would just drop off the food but she even stayed to help me get everything set up in my own serving dishes! I can't say enough good things about her :) definitely recommend her services!!

First of all, the food is amazing. That should be the primary reason why one chooses a caterer. Fresh and delicious ingredients that people raved about. A lot of healthy options available for different preferences: gluten-free, allergies, keto. Next is the level of service provided. Our company has used Kitchenina to cater client lunches and the response has always been positive - delivery is prompt and professional.

My experience with Deborah for a professional business meeting was top notch. Prompt, plenty of food, catered to a picky audience (gluten free one person, another no tomatoes, another no cheese, bla bla bla). Everyone was impressed with the food, and the service. Many thanks. And it kept on giving, that night my 14 yr old freshman reminded me that it was his turn in Adviser session to bring snacks, so Wallah! - Bunt Cake to the rescue. It also turned out that another Advisor was not there and instead of the normal 8 - 10 kids they had two groups and only ONE treat. Again Bunt Cake to the rescue - he and 18 kids demolished that cake at school today and it was PERFECT! The salmon was divine - from the local fish market, and the desert, fresh peach and strawberry cobbler with homeade whip cream we are still eating.... Can't write a better story. I gave the Donuts to the staff and right now am eating cheeses and Kelly left for an evening meeting and discovered the left over pasta, so she's off with it, and we all had the rest of the salmon for dinner last night (except what's in the fridge). Masterful job! All ended well. thanks again from us all John

Grace catered our baby's first birthday party and everyone raved about the food! The salmon cream cheese caper rolls were my favorite! She was very communicative and willing to do whatever we needed (including making everything gluten-free). Setup was a snap and everything was yummy. Thank you so much!

Albert, from the start, was warm and professional. This man knows his way around the kitchen! He and his lovely wife, Antonia, whipped up the most amazing vegetarian dinner for a family party (12 adults, 6 kids). Even the meat-lovers were shocked to learn that vegetarian meals were delectable. :) He was on time, clean/quick, and presented some gorgeous dishes. I'm hiring him for all future parties; he left my kitchen spotless. :) He is warm, personable, and the list goes on. Thank you, Albert and Antonia, for an awesome night.

I met Lena and her team while they were setting up for a party of 300 at the same location we were planning our sons wedding reception. It looked truly amazing!! She not only owns all the decor but lays out a beautiful food display. I talked with her on the spot and given our headcount she quoted me a great price! Our sons wedding was 4 weeks away. We did have a caterer but he only did the food, no decor....he kindly returned our deposit. Lena was very professional, contacting me the next day to get the plans rolling. She came to our house for the tasting, bringing serving staff, decor and enough food for 6 tasters. All the food was good! We went over all the details which she is great at, and even details I'd forgotten. She knows wedding that for sure! The kids reception was more than we expected. With a red, black, wht, damask theme Everything was formal, elegant and looked so much more expensive than it was. The guests were quite impressed. Any requests we had, even the last minute ones were done. Our buffet was beautifully laid out, as well as decorated with hand carved fruits. The free chocolate fountain was a hit as well with quite a variety of foods to dip! The staff all dressed in formal attire and gloves, presented our head and parent tables their meals in a formal presentation. We all loved that! Lena takes great pride in what she does as well does her staff. Bridesmaids told me her staff even have to brush their teeth before they start interacting with guests. I like that! Now that's attention to detail! I could go on and on with how wonderful Lena and her staff made our sons/daughters reception! I'd would refer Lena in a heartbeat and will definitely use her services in the future!

I worked with Dennis at Liberation Foods to cater my son's 6th birthday party. The food was DELICIOUS. My only regret was that we only had 1 hour of food time (due to the venue, not Liberation)! :) Highly recommend and will definitely use again.

Tonya was very warm from our first contact. She definitely listened to what I needed and quickly put together some ideas. She is very flexible and never lets on that you are taking up her (very precious and little) free time. The evening of the event: I finally met Tonya and Israel. They went right to work with very little direction from me (their staff had to do final set up of the tables). My guests raved about the presentation and quality of the hors d’ouevres. Dinner was beautiful, delicious, and service was lovely. Just to top it off, no other caterer/chef service we have used has left our kitchen and home in such great shape. I can’t wait to book the team again.

I booked Chef Megan for my birthday party. We had a dinner in our home for our party of ten. Megan was prompt and professional. Everything she served looked and tasted great. She was flexible with the menu and gave me several options. We started off with the short rib appetizer and stuffed mushrooms which were amazing. Then we ambled over to the dining room for the soup course which was a gorgeous tomato soup made with local heirloom tomatoes and these crispy little rosemary croutons that I keep craving. For the main course she served the juiciest chicken full of flavor. It was coated in an herb mix and smoked, but the smoke flavor was mild. We had roasted baby potatoes that had a lemony taste that I haven't had before. We also had a salad and sauted fresh vegetables, which I thought were pretty good and my picky eater ate so they must have been good. Chef Megan takes care to make sure the flavors of the meal work together and I felt great knowing that the food was grown locally and fresh. For dessert she made banana upside down cake, which is new to me, but loved it. It was low glycemic and no gluten ( how, I have no idea. The taste was rich and sweet) I do know I didn't wake up puffy like usually do when I indulge in sweet cakes and treats. I will absolutely book Megan again in the future. I can't say how great our experience was. I loved having a delicious meal served up in our home where we could eat and visit at our leisure. Oh~ and the leftovers were boxed up and kitchen cleaned! It was a night to remember. Can't wait to use Chef Megan again.

    I found St. John Event Production through a corporate event. The food was delicious and I especially liked the ambience Michelle created with the themed decorations, serving dishes, etc. I am always on the lookout for great caterers and service people so that I can offer the best to my clients, which is the reason for this review. I am an event planner and was orchestrating a wedding for a very savvy bride. She wanted a sophisticated reception in a classy venue and had a strict budget. After meeting with my usual top two caterers, I met with Michelle and Schuyler to get their ideas and I am so glad I took a chance and chose a St. John. Michelle offered many options and worked with me to create the perfect combination of delectable food and beverage options as well as creative props to transform the venue from a safely neutral space into a romantic, inviting room that reflected the bride and groom’s personalities. My success is dependent upon delivering a stress free experience for the bride that exceeds her expectations. Because I am admittedly a control freak, I’m sure I drove Michelle crazy with my constant phone calls to make sure everything was on track, but she was a total pro and was always one step ahead of me. Now, some specifics….. we decided on setting up food stations throughout the venue rather than a buffet. The coconut shrimp and samosa eggrolls were a couple of the favorites along with the roasted pear with candied pecans salad, the super tender short ribs, and bacon-wrapped scallops, not to mention the scrumptious deserts that accompanied the wedding cake (vanilla ice cream with caramelized pineapple and crispy crumbled topping was to die for). St. John provided not only the food and décor items, linens, chairs, tables, plates and flatware, but also a full bar, including bartender! The staff was very attentive and jumped in to help the florist as well as the venue manager to make sure every detail was in place. I was really impressed with how well they went out of their way to take care of the guests. The bride commented on the extra attention they paid to her elderly parents, bringing them their favorite menu items and keeping their champagne glasses full. I will definitely be hiring St. John again. They helped me deliver a wonderful event while making my job so much easier!

    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.
