Debbie cooked the delicious dinners for our weekend wedding at a camp in Napa. She was so easy to plan with, and had many wonderful suggestions as well as being highly receptive to our vague ideas, turning them into a coherent meal design. She was able to incorporate our guests' various dietary restrictions seamlessly and without making them feel singled out. During the event she was always available and checked in with us to make sure everything was going smoothly. On top of everything, the dinners were delicious, and we received several compliments from our guests on the food. Thanks Debbie!

I have been to several events which Taste of the Senses catered. They all have been above and beyond my expectations. The quality and quantity of food surpasses those of other caterers at the events. His menu includes tri-tip, ceviche, and tamales, among other delicious, homemade authentic Mexican fare. Arturo and his crew go to all lengths to adjust to the event and circumstances, whether it is a wedding, a quincianera, or a fundraiser. They are friendly, hard-working, and talented, and I recommend Taste of the Senses highly.

From the initial meeting to the finale of the evening, Boris was outstanding. He listened carefully to my ideas and added his ,"food for thought". We eagerly awaited our evening with Boris and all were very impressed with a meal to remember. Everything about it was fabulous. The tuna tartar was superb, the salad, a chef's delight. The main dish was to die for. Rack of lamb at its very best. Fresh vegetables and cuscous were an added bonus. The finale was a delight to the palate. A lite but outstanding desert of fruit and gelato. We will have Boris back! And finally, I must comment on his demeanor. Boris is truly a very nice person. Five stars to a great chef.

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.

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.

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!

Kincy Catering provided an excellent array of meats and side dishes for our Barbecue we had on Saturday, August 11th 2018 for 53 church volunteers. Mr. Kincy provided excellent delicious foods that everyone enjoyed and the dishes were pleasing to the eyes. Because as we know, presentation is a BIG factor. It was truly my pleasure to work with him, he has a spirit which makes doing business with him effortless and you are sure to be at ease in kmowing that all of your catering needs will be taken care of. I decided that 5:15 PM would be a great time for him to arrive, he was at my home at 5:10 PM. I like a punctual businessnan. Thank you again for everything!

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

My husband and I are extremely satisfied with Post Oak Barbecue, they were extremely professional from day one. I got in contact with Ryan who answered every single question I had. The day of our daughters' birthday party, Ryan and his associate came in early to cut the meat right in front of us, which by the way smelled delicious. The food was outstanding, every single of our guests made great comments about how good the food was. Not only did they bring garlic bread and chocolate chip cookies but they even brought utensils for us. We look forward in hiring Post Oak Barbecue in the future. We 100% recommend their services.

She is so professional yet feels like family at the same time. Food is a very intimate experience and you want to know that what is prepared is not only delicious but has been prepared in a 'clean and healthy' manner. She nailed both!! I completely trust her food and loved every last bite.

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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
