I have decide to hire Chef Marcel due to the caring nature of accommodating my Vegan guest. I appreciate how he is willing to substitute some ingredients and provided details of the meal he had planned for my daughter's special day.

Chef Mark was an amazing find! We needed a chef in a pinch for an event of 50. He jumped right in and augmented the groceries we already had with creative twists that really wowed our guests. Every bite was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. He even made a special separate menu for our vegan guests. He was also very congenial and engaged our guests who wanted to participate in the cooking process. Overall, his joyful demeanor and love of cooking on top of his bad ass cooking skills made our event so much better that we could have hoped for. Thank you Chef Mark!

We highly recommend Chef Alexis and her wonderful team for your next event. We had been having difficulty trying to find a caterer who not only understood our needs for the event, but also was able to accommodate our last minute booking. Chef Alexis was more than accommodating with so many last minutes changes (menu, setup, guest count, staffing needs), always available to speak to be sure she and I were on the same page. She even went out of her way to hire additional staff to fit our “esthetic” for the event. Day of the event, Chef Alexis and her team went above and beyond to be sure everything ran smoothly. She was too able to work with our limited space to create a beautiful and delicious catering for our event. Thank you, Chef Alexis, for all your incredible help!!

I can not say enough good things about Roger and Gabe. They catered our office's Administrative Professionals Day luncheon and did a fantastic job! They arrived on time, had the food ready on time, and constantly kept enough food in our buffet. We have a few vegetarians in our office and Roger prepared cauliflower steaks for them. By the time one of our vegetarians got to the BBQ, her cauliflower steak had been mistakenly eaten by someone. Without being asked, Roger ran over to a nearby grocery store and purchased another cauliflower steak to make for our employee. While there was plenty of vegetarian sides for her to enjoy and she didn't make a fuss, Roger still took it upon himself to fix a mistake that was our fault - not his. Oh and the most important part, the food is amazing! Everyone in our office was raving about the food, that is before we all fell into our food comas. :) Big Mann BBQ is fantastic. I cannot recommend them enough!

From cakes and sweets to sandwiches and pizza everything she makes is absolutely top notch. Shelley's vegan dishes are creative, full of flavor and everything you'd expect even from the best vegan restaurant.

Really enjoyed Tanesha's catering. The food was of great quality and the prices were reasonable. We had a some confusion over the time of delivery (so be sure to confirm the time you want the food delivered) but besides that everything was perfect. Would recommend.

Mary Mills makes delicious dishes. Her cooking is imaginative and very tasty. From finger foods to desserts, her recipes are so full of flavor, so delectable. Mary is a meticulous planner, she listens to the wants of her clients, is very reliable, has very good pricing, and her presentation is impeccable. She is a joy. As a chef and caterer, Mary Mills is professional and works hard to exceed her clients expectations. Mary made our Champagne Garden Party in Montecito a very memorable event for us all - delicious food and wonderful service.

I had Big Daddy's Catering for my 33rd birthday and I was very very satisfied with the overall service and quality. The food was amazing, especially the flavorful tri tip and the best potato salad I've ever had. But I will never forget how amazing the artichoke dip was. It was to die for! Steve, Michelle, and the crew were so helpful and generous and you could definitely see how much they genuinely care about the quality of their product and their outstanding customer service. I highly recommend this catering company to anyone who is looking for excellent service and excellent food.

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.

Heather is dedicated to her new one woman catering business! She had catered a friends party with appetizers and it was a great success; we loved her food and would recommend her to others! She came by my house with samples and we went over the menus. It’s nice to work with someone one on one you know. p.s. I really recommend her Savory Artichoke Heart Caramelized Onion Italian Cheese Quiche!

I am so thankful for " Cookin With Lennys' Catering" service. I had a difficult time with the planning of my daughters sweet sixteen party. We had three previous caters and the experience was not good. I came to Lenny with budget & a deadline approaching... Lenny gave us a tasting, and the food was awesome! We booked & immediately gave a deposit. The set up was easy, they are very accommodating, all our guest enjoyed the the food. This cater will give you the personal touch you need to have a event everyone will be talking about! ( in a great way) keep up the great work Lenny! We will be back for more:) Carol Barker

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
