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 used Jose and his staff for our daughters 15th birthday party. We had a bit over 100 guests with the party lasting about 5 hours. I can't say enough about how good the food and service were. Jose and his staff were quick and efficient and super professional and friendly. Jose bailed me out with a few items i had forgotten (ice and dessert plates). I would and have recommend Jose's service to anyone looking to have a catered event.

I was very thankful that they were quick to respond. We were selecting a caterer on relatively short notice (one week in advance) for a small party. We had a Mexican theme and the food was quite good. We were only disappointed that the tacos with "all the fixins' " didn't include guacamole! Lots of onions, salsa and sour cream but no guacamole. =(

My wife and I agree that hiring 3 Little Birds was the most rewarding decision and the best money we spent on our wedding. Jessica and Dustin are the dream team of wedding coordination. My wife and I had very particular plans already set in motion for what we wanted and we thought about doing the entire thing ourselves but worried about the amount of stress the days leading up and the day of would have become. So, we hired her as a day of coordinator to make sure it all went as planned, and did it ever exceed our expectations. Jessica met us at our venue before officially hiring her so we could run through our dream wedding and fill her in on what was in motion and the couple of last minute things we needed help with. She listened and most importantly understood exactly what we wanted and was able to seamlessly join in on the plans as if she planned it herself. Most notably we were about 6 weeks away from our big day before meeting Jessica. We had already communicated with 2 other coordinators earlier in our planning stages and we were over our coordinator search at that point. One of the coordinators found here on thumbtack (not to be named) promised one price range that seemed reasonable which turned out to be a complete bait and switch when after meeting her she went up more than double her initial quote, and nothing else was added on between that time to change her rates. We also found that other coordinators we contacted were good at saying no, it can't be done. Or, you can do this but it's going to cost so much more for that. And honestly, it came down to them not wanting to work for anything and just sit around bossing people. None of them compared to 3 Little Birds!! Even our guests were amazed at how well Jessica and Dustin had a handle on everything. I've been to some amazing weddings and never thought " wow this coordinator really made this wedding happen so that the bride and groom could just enjoy their day with their guests". That is exactly what we were able to do with 3 Little Birds having our backs. They hustled the whole time before the wedding putting our decorations out with us and kept everything on schedule from our happy hour with our amazing food truck, to our trolley ride to the ceremony site, then back to our reception site in the trolley to finish our night with dinner, dancing, and libations. Then they added the icing on the cake by cleaning up the venue at the end of the night for us so we could continue to visit with our friends and family. I don't mean just throwing out trash and sweeping the floors. They also carefully hand-packed all of our decorations we made and brought, our flowers my wife arranged for centerpieces that day were neatly placed into boxes that would travel well, and they loaded them all into our vehicles. We had hired them for overtime anyway beforehand but no way did we expect them to treat our wedding as if it were there own. Jessica and Dustin, thank you so much for everything and leaving us with unforgettable experiences and memories. We have video proof of you two breaking a sweat so we could sit and look pretty.

I have to qualify this review first by saying I have worked as a professional cook and have owned a catering business. So I have an eye for and know what works and what doesn't, what can be prepped beforehand without sacrificing quality, and what can be done on sight and off-site with the aim of making sure everything is properly expedited and comes out on time. When I arrived the table was set up nicely set up and decorated. However, we had previously informed Chef that we were going to be 13 and we would like two tables, as some people are uncomfortable with sitting at a table of 13 people. So we had to ask Chef to please separate the two tables. When Bridgette came the day before, my wife mentioned she wanted a table of 6 and one of 7, not two tables pushed together to make 13. There were also no cloth napkins, but paper napkins. I guess assuming that a request for "linens" did not include cloth napkins, only tablecloths. But I digress. Even though this was done in our home where we are well equipped, I still expect anyone coming to prepare food to come fully equipped to meet their needs without having to use the home equipment. This was not the case, as Chef used our Kitchenaid, tongs, and other items. As well, they did not have a serving platter for one of the hors'd'oeuvres. Furthermore, they had to use some of our silverware because they did not bring everything needed (spoons, forks). There were steak knives on the table when we were eating fish, and no other knives. I had no problem with this because, of course, I wanted the event to go smoothly. But other clients might not have been as flexible. Finally, they used all my kitchen towels and had them all wet, from I don't know what- but it's easy enough to bring your own hand towels. As well, because we used the plates on the table for hors'd'ouevres, they had to wash and prepare again for salad plates, as they had expected the hors'd'oeuvres to simply be finger food. Nonetheless, the hors'd'oeuvres-asparagus with prosciutto and chicken bites, or whatever they might have been-still require plates. This delayed serving. More forethought should have been given to how this was all going to go down. Personally, I would have brought the salad all prepped. Because it wasn't prepped, it meant a longer serving delay. The server didn't know the difference between wine and water glasses-some basic protocol needed. The food was excellent and I had several very positive compliments from the guests, this is where they shined, and it was served hot and fresh like it should be. We had a delicious shaved fennel salad with parmesan, and a main course of Blackened Sea Bass with a succotash and roasted potatoes. That is the beauty of preparing on-site. I say this with the caveat, as mentioned earlier, that a few things could have been prepped beforehand without sacrificing quality. This would have allowed the service to flow more quickly and not have such long delays between dishes. As Chef prepared the chocolate mousse on site, some people had to leave before dessert since it took well over 45 minutes between our main course and dessert. While we had agreed that I would supply the chocolate, it I had known it was going to take chef so long to prepare it, I would have suggested it be made beforehand. If I had done this lunch, I would have brought the mousse pre-made. They used up my whole bag of ice too-I would have brought ice. Finally, food left over was taken away and not left with us. I asked the server I f she was going to leave the food to me as she was walking out and she laughed uncomfortably and said no. My assumption is that the client paid for the food, they should get any leftovers. I give Kudos to the Chef for excellent food, but the service was uncomfortably slow and everyone noticed. Finally, the server was inexperienced. Overall, organization and attention to details were lacking. To end on a positive note, they did an excellent job leaving the kitchen just as the found it and were friendly and professional despite the hiccups mentioned. I didn't have to worry about anything. If you are looking for good food, Chef Mumsie does a great job. But please ask that they send you experienced servers, and make sure to point out every possible detail that you can think of, because in my experience, they did not have a checklist or form to check off what you do or don't need for an event.

The Pit Stop BBQ was great! The employees really LOVED and enjoyed the food. Their services were also wonderful. We've had caterers that take up to two hours to serve 150 people. Pam and her crew were done in less than an hour. I recommend The Pit Stop and am looking forward to hiring Pam again in the near future!

I hired Sierra Madre to cater a come-and-go brunch for close friends and out-of-town guests the morning after my daughter’s wedding. Initially I was concerned about travel time from Monrovia to my home in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, but Tonya (owner-chef) assured me she would allow for all eventualities and be there with plenty of time to set up and be ready before the guests arrived. The menu was mimosas, orange juice, lox, bagel & cream cheese (with the usual trimmings), vegetarian omelets, pancakes, cut fruit, and sour cream coffee cake, coffee and tea. Everything turned out perfect! Tonya and her assistant, Chris, were at my house early, got set up and were ready to go before the guests started arriving. The food was wonderful. The on-the-spot food, pancakes and omelets, were outstanding; and Tonya’s sour cream coffee cake was a BIG hit. The guests loved everything. The only glitch was an under estimation of how much lox, bagels and cream cheese the guests would consume. Fortunately, I had anticipated that could happen and had an extra 60 ounces of lox on hand and an extra pint of cream cheese, and we have two bagel shops within walking distance. Tonya was great to work with and having her cater made my life so much easier. It was a beautiful brunch, within my budget, and I am thankful that I took the chance on hiring her company as I had relied solely on the Thumbtack reviews when I made the choice. I’ll definitely use Sierra Catering again. The only suggestion I might make is that more attention be paid to the serving dishes used. Mixing bowls really aren’t attractive bowls to put on the buffet table.

Garland Whitt provided great, and I mean great, food for my husband's 60th birthday party. He was very responsive to our suggestions and brought a wide variety of menu suggestions, as well. Every dish was exactly as he had described. Garland was prompt and well organized. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food. Garland has also provided desserts for a few of our events. These were also very delicious, especially his ice cream! Forget about it!

Laura has been amazing with both my children. My daughter wanted cooking lessons as part of her birthday present a couple years ago and Laura taught her (and me) how to make some amazing dishes. They have become my families "go to" favorites. Recently, my son decided he wanted to learn to cook too so Laura has started working with him. They made the most delicious chocolate cake with homemade buttercream icing for my mom's birthday and I'm hoping for a few more delicious dinner recipes soon too. Laura is patient, kind and the kids love her. She really makes it fun and has the best "tips and tricks" in the kitchen.

For my fiftieth birthday party, it was important for me to have a party that would be the talk of the town. I am so glad we hired Marie's Southern Comfort because with her on board; Mission accomplished. The most important piece to any event is the food and Marie's Southern Comfort ensured that our guests' palates would be oh so satisfied. The southern-style Cajun cuisine was simply delicious. Never have we tasted chicken that was tender, moist and just the right amount of spicy all at once. We ordered rice and beans to make it authentic and just talking about it I can almost taste them now. The blend of flavors was exquisite. Marie and her team were professional and made sure all the little details were covered for our event. My friends are still talking about the cake, "Death by Chocolate." And what a way to go. Chocolate layer cake with chocolate icing, and chocolate chips. One might think with all that chocolate, it would be overkill...but it was simply divine and perfect. I cannot express how pleased we were with everything Ms. Marie did for us. She gave me a special treat by adding a leopard over-lay on my red tablecloths. She communicated with everyone involved and found out that my red-carpet back-drop had leopard scalloped trim and kept to the theme with my tables. The original leopard woman, I was thrilled. I will not have another event that does not include the comfort I received from working with Marie's Southern Comfort.

Had the pleasure of enjoying their cuisine at a friend's party (they catered both dinner & dessert). It was unreal how good it was. The bbq pork in the sliders was so tender, sweet & spicy it just melted in your mouth. It was so delicious the tray had to be refilled twice - not bad for a modest amount of people. I'm not ashamed to say I had seconds (okay maybe thirds) & I'm pretty sure boyfriend went back for fourths. This was topped off by insanely good cupcakes; chocolate ganache with buttercream & red velvet with marshmallow cream. These guys did such an amazing job boyfriend & I have booked them for a big party next year. Their prices are just great & Steve & Valerie are easy & fun to work with. Steve is also extremely creative, coming up with fresh & interesting dishes that avoid the boring standard. I trust his taste enough to let him have free reign. I'm really excited about our event now & can't wait to taste what they come up with!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
