I had a party of 40 in my house. My kitchen is very small and Chef Marcel was able to cook for all those people in my small kitchen - and the food was delicious!! We started off with delicious appetizers passed around by his servers, who were charming, courteous, and efficient. I will use chef Marcel at my next party - hands down - and all my guests asked about the catering - and called to tell me everything was first class:) I highly recommend chef Marcel!

I had my birthday party up in Boulder, and Madkins catering was kind enough to travel there and provided enough food for 30 people, and was able to make substitutions for vegan options. Everything turned out to be delicious and was enjoyed by all. So glad they got in touch with me. We had plenty of delicious leftovers, too!

Chef Mumsie is a wonderful catering company. Very personable and the food was delicious (warm, tasty, and satisfied my 300 guests). Bridgette was amazing to work with and was able to meet my every standard. They enthusiastically worked with me to provide a meal within my budget. They were able to provide a meal (Spaghetti with spicy meatballs, vegetarian baked spaghetti, mixed green salad, dinner rolls/garlic bread, and cookies) that was delicious. Thank you Chef Mumsie and Bridgette!!

Chef Ana was very attentive, she made sure that we were happy with the flavor and texture of the food prior to the event. She involved us in all aspects of the process from plate selection to drink, to plating. She brought more than enough servers, and they were extremely friendly and catering with a smile to my guest! Her food and staff definitely made my event a memorable one. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends! Thank you From the Grill Catering for the amazing service you provided 😊

I can't say enough good things about Alexis and So Divine Catering. They catered my wife's baby shower for 30 people and everything was perfect. The food was amazing - everyone raved about it and I know several guests who are going to now hire them for other parties coming up. Alexis is so nice. From my first interaction with her I just knew she was going to be great and now I know I've found my caterer forever.

Steven and Mariel did an outstanding job catering my event (low key gathering of friends). I requested Latin American - theme. They prepared delicious guacamole + chips, fried queso, vegetable quesadillas, chicken lettuce wraps and pork tacos with corn tortillas. I was expecting guests with a gluten allergy and guests who are vegetarian. Steven worked with me to customize the perfect menu within my budget. I will be using Steven again in the future. Next time for a more sophisticated professional event in my home.

Chef Keith and his staff were great! He arrived early, set up amazing food stations and a bar for our non-profit cocktail party. The lamb chops, POKE station, "mushroom en croute", short rib skewers, cheese platter, and dessert bar complete with deep fried brownies were all a huge hit. Chef Keith really impressed my guests and made me look like a superstar hostess. I would hire him again and many of my friends and associates took his card for future catering events. Loved the bartender, server and Keith's helpers. My kitchen was spotless also...worth it!

Food First Events & Catering Co. recently did two events for my company and the feedback was amazing! The food was stepped up in such a way that the impact was noticeable. The breakfast spreads that were delivered on time and set up impeccably were delicious with a few notable homemade pastry items that left people talking! I experienced nothing but professionalism, reliability and class from this experience. Also, working with David to make sure I met my budget was extremely easy and he was eager to help meet my needs without compromising quality. I highly recommend!

A Taste of Gourmet was very helpful from start to finish with the catering for my event. Not only was he extremely thorough in our initial call about the aesthetic I was looking to achieve, menu ideas and cost estimates, but up until the event, he was very prompt in responses, helpful and offered ideas to keep things cost effective knowing that this event was for a non profit. At the event everyone raved about the catering. The staff was friendly and professional, the menu was well-rounded and tasted exceptional. I would definitely hire A Taste of Gourmet for a future event. It was wonderful!

Living Veg provides years of experience to their clients with professional expertise and a committed focus on details along with the personalization to what the client desires. When you add these qualities to the truly delicious food that is delivered, you have a very rare combination in catering that is 2nd to none. If you are looking for a caterer for any type of event, whether it be a small business lunch for a corporate meeting or a larger event, such as a beautiful wedding or other family celebration, I would strongly recommend that you contact Shelley at Living Veg. You will receive far more than you expect as well as an overall plan that will fit perfectly within your budget.

Sydney made a special/private dinner for my fiancé and I after our engagement. She was amazing!! She emailed with my fiancé ahead of time and found out what sort of foods we like and what was meaningful and special to our relationship and then based the menu off of that. She was present enough to explain things to us, but also gave us our privacy. It was the perfect balance. It was so fun to feel like we have a private chef catering to all of our needs and expectations. Very romantic! The food Sydney cooked was AMAZING! From the appetizer to the dessert, we could not have asked for a better meal. I would highly recommend Sydney. You will not be disappointed.

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.

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.
