Arturo is a joy to work with and makes delicious healthy foods. I've used his catering for a number of business lunches and they are always enjoyed. I especially love that he makes tamales with olive oil, and the veggie ones are superb.

C's Catering catered my uncle's memorial service this past week. From the moment Chris reached out he was respectful, professional and understanding. Chris was willing to work within our budget and made sure that had we had piece of mind during this time. I cannot recommend them enough. And look forward to working with them in the future! Thank you again Chris, you are definitely a blessing!

We wanted an English Tea Party for my Sister’s milestone birthday. Nancy worked on a special menu “catering” to our request. The food was fabulous! Our English guests said it was an authentic tea party.

We hired Mimi to cater out daughter's Bat Mitzvah. But what Mimi did was so above and beyond just catering. Mimi's food and presentation of food was delicious and beautiful. But in addition, she turned the party space into a gorgeously decorated space beyond the dreams of our daughter. Mimi was determined to make it the most magical event for our daughter and listened very carefully to all our daughter's ideas. We really couldn't believe Mimi's magic! She has the highest work ethic and delivers more than 100%! Great team of people backing her up as well. It was the best day of our daughter's life. Thank you mimi!

We contacted Chef Tim about catering our father's 70th birthday party. He was very responsive while we were arranging everything, and suggested a great menu that everyone loved! He even made a special bowl of my dad's favorite food just for him! Many birthday invitees complimented us on the great food and execution. The experience was fantastic and the party was an absolute hit! Chef Tim helped us create a wonderful and memorable birthday party! He was very knowledgable, well organized, and personable. We highly recommended Chef Tim and we will absolutely be contacting him for all of our future parties.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience having Chrysalis Catering working my son's graduation party. Tameeka had great communication skills. She always kept in contact with me before and during the event. She was professional and attentive to the needs of the party and made sure the meal was prepared on time. My guests were also impressed with Tameeka and asked for her card to cater their future events. This was the first time I used this app and my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Chrysalis Catering is top notch.

Chad provided great food and service for our event. In terms of service, Chad worked very independently to get the appropriate permits and design the menu. It was a huge relief while planning an event to be able to tell him when and where to be and not have to worry about the details. In terms of food, every guest commented on the stellar quality and great selection. Our event was a sports tournament so we requested a relatively inexpensive menu; however, Chad's food far exceeded our expectations based on the requested price range. All-in-all, great vending experience and we are eager to have Chad back for the event next year.

I hosted an important client event and it just HAD to be perfect. The team from You've Been Served showed up on time, totally prepared and quickly set to work... Voila! The presentation was spectacular, the food was amazing and the guests were very impressed. Several of my clients have since contacted me about the catering and I'm happy to refer them to YBS.

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.
