I can’t believe how amazing Pour La France was for our wedding. I have been involved in others’ weddings but I have never experienced the level of helpfulness, thoughtfulness, throughness and professionalism that Pour La France brought to our wedding. From the beginning of the process 8 months ago to the end of our wedding night, they were more helpful than I ever expected and definitely more than I’ve ever seen with other caterers for other weddings. They listened to our specific desires and tweaked details in our tasting session (which was so fun!!) and they even included services on the day of the wedding that were unconventional, just because I said we were stressed about them. They helped with set up and clean up and all of my relatives and friends who helped out with the wedding told me how sweet and helpful they were. They took so much stress off of the day for me and ny husband and was invaluable to us. Plus the food was AWESOME and everyone said so.

Thomas was wonderful. The food was delicious, the prep and cleanup impeccable, and his personality warm and friendly. It was a graduation party for our son and his friends. Not only did Thomas and Joelle do a great job catering, he even shared grilling techniques with the group. I would definitely hire him again.

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.

This was the first time we've had a personal chef come to our house and cook for us. It was a wonderful​ birthday present and I would definitely do it again. Dustin and Andrea made it so easy. They brought all silverware and plates, and left no mess for us. It made for a relaxed atmosphere and fabulous food.

Great food and set up ahead of our event. Lisa does an excellent job and I highly recommend her services. Her rates are substantially better than those of corporate caterers too.

I found Nancy on Thumbtack a few days before our event, after our caterer stopped returning our phone calls. Nancy was very easy to work with, very prompt in response times and flexible in what we were looking for. It was a HUGE relief finding Nancy so close to the event! On the day of the event her staff showed up on time, (again) were flexible with what we were looking for and they had GREAT attitudes. The food was fantastic, and we were more than happy to give out our caterers information to anyone who asked. I would highly recommend Sparrow Kitchen to anyone looking for a professional, delicious, and easy to work with caterer.

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 contacted 3 Chicks Kitchen for catering a birthday party. The catering menu didn't match up with the regular restaurant menu and we wanted to try out the dishes before committing. Sandy had us come over one afternoon after the restaurant closed and we were able to taste everything that we were considering for our event. Sandy was interested in our feedback about taste, texture, and asked us what our preferences were. She took notes about our special requests and got back to us within a day or two with a quote. Sandy has been very responsive and helpful. We look forward to 3 Chicks Kitchen's help with this event.

The food was delicious and innovative and we had a ton of options to choose from. J Street was easy to work with and very responsive with answering all of my questions. I’ve had their food several times and I’m never disappointed with the quality or taste. I would definitely recommend checking out their monthly menu on the food truck and using their catering services for any special event!

Sarah and Leshner are an absolute pleasure to work with! They helped make our annual food focused fundraising event for our small but growing non-profit the best yet. They developed a delicious and creative menu that highlighted the best of Filipino Brunch Cuisine and was approachable and delicious for all guest of all ages at our event. Not only do they bring their A Game to the food but they have a wonderful sense of style and made sure our event was classy with higher end catering equipment and serving platters. Their attention to detail allowed me as the Executive Director of the organization to not worry one second about the food and set-up and focus on what I needed too! The Orange Crunch is a total class act and we look forward to working with them for years to come!

Lyndsey catered a brunch at my home for my mother's 60th birthday party. Everything was fabulous! The lox presentation looked great, she made a lovely, delicate spinach and egg white stratta and provided perfectly made mimosas and coffee station for the 50+ guests to share. I was very pleased with everything from set up to clean up.

Troy and crew did an excellent job with the party I had him cater! All of the food offerings were bright, fresh, and tasty. The staff was courteous, clean, and prepared. The presentations were wonderful and artistic...I would happily, and confidently, rehire them to do another catering event for me. Very professional, and attentive to special needs and details. Bravo!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
