Maggie was very easy to work with and answered every question I had on time. She set up and served our rehearsal dinner personally which gave it that extra special touch. Only wish I had asked her to add a salad dressing, as so many of our guests made "taco salads".

Food was tasty. Ordered the Taco bar. Wish there would have been a warmer for the tortillas. Tortillas were cold by the time we started eating.

Wonderful group of caterers. Incredibley kind and accommodating. Packed and stored all the delicious left overs, cleaned up the kitchen and brought a great bartender as well. The only criticism is that the salads were over dressed and thus soggy, but still had great flavor. I would definitely hire them again.

Dustin was professional, flexible, and an excellent chef. We selected Dustin because he has a high focus on the quality of the food. The meal was well thought out and expertly prepared. His team took care of everything, and he accommodated a number of dietary restrictions and requests. It was an outstanding evening!

I hired Mama Lisa's for my own birthday party last July as I did not want to have to worry about a thing when hosting. Had a wonderful experience! The food was excellent & the entire process was so streamlined with no muss no fuss. The bacon wrapped dates are delicious! My guests kept asking who catered the event. :) Also the jicama salad for the street tacos is a must have!!

We hired Nancy and team for a holiday dinner for 18 people this season and the team was great. Nancy was great to work with in planning the evening and the team of 3 that came to help cook and serve were very professional and helped the evening flow perfectly. I would highly recommend Sparrow Kitchen for catering for a dinner party, food was great, Nancy was very responsive and helped make our event very elegant.

I enjoyed working with this catering company! The food was pretty good and the catering delivery had the challenge of getting the food out & presentable very quietly, which went well. I had to take a star off because the chicken was undercooked on the two meals set aside for our folks with dietary restrictions and delivery on the second day was about 20 minutes late. Overall, the experience was good and I will keep them in the list of caterers for future events.

We love working with the team from Luke's! They have catered our company events many times and everyone looks forward to the steak sandwiches & salmon each year! I have been in charge of planning our events for the last few years and have worked with Bob and his team the last two summers - they are professional and extremely helpful, even providing extra plates & plastic cutlery for the potluck portion of our event after we ran out! Our company picnic took place outside and, as is common during summer afternoons, we got caught in a thunderstorm but the staff from Luke's took everything in stride, relocating the food service to a more sheltered area and keeping all the guests happy and well-fed. Working with such a well-prepared and experienced team made what could have been a really stressful situation for an event planner very easy to handle and Luke's really helped make our event a success!

Xim catering did a charcuterie spread for our wedding cocktail hour. Because they had a large event the same weekend, they were able to lump our event in under the large orders that got him discount pricing. This was an incredible value for us, and he came and set everything up with so much care! It was beautiful, delicious, and a great price. Plus the owner is kind, helpful, and easy to work with. Definitely recommend!

Chef Rick was terrific! He was the perfect mix of asking me what I'd like and making suggestions based on his experience and specialties. He kept in touch with me before the event so I was comfortable that we were on the same page. He was attentive during the event, yet very much in the background. My friends were really impressed with the taco bar! I'd recommend Chef Rick to anyone!

Magnifique has to be one of the best caterers we have ever had! Not only did the chef and servers show up early, they helped set up for parts of the event that weren't their responsibility. Overall, we had a great wedding and wouldn't hesitate to book again!

    On May 17, 2017, our group had the pleasure of enjoying a catered meal from Three Chicks. The meal was delivered on time and served to all us with smiles and pleasantries. That was surpassed by the quality of the meal that we all leisurely ate and relaxed as the Three Chicks staff attended to our needs for a pleasant evening.

    Copacabana Grill was great to work with! I am from the University of Wyoming and am part of an RSO, so we were on a budget. Regis was very willing to work with us, and very generous, and was understanding of the politics that is bringing a caterer to a university campus. The food was incredibly delicious, like mmmm. It was very good food and very fresh, and he was able to make enough food for 400+ people. It was really cool because he brought a grill and grilled the food outside of our Student Union. So, the smells for guests coming in were a nice addition to the atmosphere. He was very professional to work with on the day of and leading up to it. Overall, I think I speak for my whole committee when I say that we would definitely recommend Copacabana Grill for your catering needs.

    Leshner and Sarah are a pleasure to work with. They are extremely responsive, professional, and prompt. Their gourmet food truck is exactly what our event called for. Leshner's menu offering was more than we had expected - a bit exotic and delicious! The presentation was spot on for our black tie plated meal. These 2 are an outstanding couple providing amazing results for The Orange Crunch Catering.

    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.
