This was my first experience ordering catering service so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie did a great job for our group. The food was delicious and plentiful. Debbie worked with some special criteria to make the deliveries to us but was on time and well prepared. Thank you Debbie for the great food and all your hard work!

I could not have asked for a better experience working with Paul Michael Signature Catering. I hired them for a surprise party for my husband's 60th party. They were very creative with the menu; we served a variety of delicious appetizers. All of the guests absolutely RAVED not only about the food, but about the helpful and friendly nature of the caterers. They did such an outstanding job of keeping plenty of food available (both hot and cold appetizers) and were a definite hit. I highly recommend Paul Michael Signature Catering.

We hired Albert for my birthday party to do a progressive dinner. It was spectacular. He is a very engaging person who is passionate about his work. His food is beautiful, like works of art with unique combinations of flavors we had not tasted before. He spent hours prior to arrival slow cooking several dishes. He is not a caterer, he is a master artist personal chef!

We hired Cowabunga BBQ for our daughter's High Graduation / 18th birthday celebration on 5/27/2017. Cowabunga BBQ was absolutely fantastic to work with. The food was beyond delicious; all of the guests were raving about how wonderful everything they prepared was. We could not decided if the potato salad, mac & cheese or the tri-tip was the favorite. Even more than that though was how incredibly wonderful and professional David and his amazing daughter Megan was. The food was delicious and top notch: the staff are friendly and so so helpful. Any event we host needing a caterer will be Cowabunga BBQ.

We hired Famous Creations to cater our wedding and they did an amazing job. The food was not as good as I remembered the tasting, but it was cooked on a larger scale and was buffet style, so that is understandable. However, the best part about their services was the hired help. We hired a head server, Jill and two food servers. Jill was basically our wedding planner and did an amazing job making the wedding run smoothly.Also, our wedding cake, made by Famous Creations was to die for! Super moist, beautifully presented and was gone almost instantly. Overall, I highly recommend Famous Creations for their catering services, they made my wedding day run without any problems.

Polkadot Dinners is our favorite caterer. Rachel is one of the most professional caterers I know in the area. Her food is absolutely amazing and her presentation of her display of food just ties in with the theme of her menu which is a added plus. Definitely within anyone budget she can make it happen. Highly recommended.

Nancy did a fabulous job with our 50+ person graduation event at our home. She responded quickly, was very flexible and delivered a delicious meal (appetizers through dessert) that got universal compliments! She even accommodated various ethnic and allergy-related food needs. She is full service and would be a great caterer for your next event!

Mimi and her staff were amazing; they by far exceeded my expectations. My safari baby shower was more than I ever hoped for because Mimi took the time to find out what was important to me and made it happen. Mimi was responsible for everything from set up, decorations, catering, games and cleanup. She and her very professional staff came into my home 4 hours prior to the party and transformed our living and dining room into a real safari jungle! She even hand made the party favor bags and they were so adorable. My guests were so amazed and had an amazing time. I can't wait to hire Mimi again soon!!! I must comment also on her staff: I felt like they were part of our family. They all brought the personal touch and were here at our service. The warmth and personality of her staff are beyond description.

Wow! If you need a caterer that will work with you on your menu, is reasonably priced, food is WICKED GOOD and they have an awesome sense of humor Wicked Pig is your ideal caterer!!! The food was all bursting with flavor. We had Tri tip, Chicken and Portobella sandwich bar with a variety of salads and dessert for a family reunion; WP was a huge hit. Food and wine experts all wrapped up in one. The neighborhood was jealous from the aroma of the mesquite grill in our driveway. We are looking forward to planning another event so we can use the again. Theo and Carlo rocked it!!! Thank you!!!

Working with Tameeka and Harve was a fantastic experience. The communication with Tameeka from start to finish was exceptional and super prompt! Tameeka was flexible and creative and worked easily within my budget....she is simply a joy to work with! The food was phenomenal....guests said the crab cakes were the best they'd ever had! All the food was expertly prepared and served. Tameeka and Harve were the perfect mix of professional and comfortable to have interacting with our family in our home. Not only can I wholeheartedly recommend Chrysalis Catering.....I will be using them again....SOON!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
