I was very impressed with the not only the delicious food, but also the way it was presented and the great communication Maggie had with me. Maggie was very flexible when I had some last minute quantity changes. Even though we had agreed on her just dropping off the food, she (as well as two of her associates) stayed throughout the event to replenish trays and walk around to serve the guests. I was blown away by the service and will definitely be recommending her to many others! I also have to mention the cake pops (my favorite) were especially delicious -- Maggie even took the time to put our company logos on them! Thank you Maggie!

Tom catered a crayfish boil in our home for 20 people. The food was wonderful - and he even cleans up! I've also attended several dinners where he prepared the food. The meals were delicious and imaginative; from perfectly grilled salmon to bison chili. I'd love to have him cater all my dinner parties.

Dustin was great right from the start. He followed through on everything he said he was going to. He was incredibly easy to work with and the food was AMAZING. His staff was professional and courteous. He turned our home into a private dining experience for a group of 18. He catered the menu to our liking and even provided wine pairing recommendations. Loved that he brought his own dishes/silverware and the kitchen was spotless when he was finished. I would highly recommend Dustin with Underground Fine Dining, and I will certainly be using him again.

Carrie is an amazing caterer. We had very specific requests and she exceeded all of them. I really enjoyed how personable and engaging she was. She brought us samples of her cooking before we placed our order and her presentation was impeccable. She has great tasting, "homecooked" food and I will definitely use and recommend Knife and Pepper for future caterings.

I received a last-minute request to try something different for an opening of one of our facilities. I contacted Devil Dog Grill and received a response within the hour. Leslee was fantastic to work with. She was pleasant, responsive, enthusiastic, professional, and ready to provide for our event! On the day of the event, they were set up in the location as instructed and in the time frame that was discussed prior to the event. It was set up perfectly and was easy to order. The food was amazing! I decided to try something new and opted for the jalapeno cheddar buffalo bratwurst and I was so glad I did! Absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked! The food was fresh and smelled wonderful as it was prepared. The value was exceptional for a lunch. We will definitely be using Devil Dog Grill again in the future and I highly recommend them for your next event!

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.

I hired Callan to cater my sister’s bridal shower and we were all so impressed!! Callan created the perfect brunch spread for us, and was able to accommodate various dietary restrictions (some of our guests are vegan and gluten-free). She was extremely professional and the food was amazing—I can’t recommend her highly enough!! I will definitely be hiring Callan again for any future events.

I can't say enough good things about the quality, service, professionalism and deliciousness of Taco Veloz food truck. Their level of communication prior to the event has set the bar (very high!) and they showed up to the event ready to roll. Attendees raved about the food and appreciated getting their meals quickly and served hot. The crew wrapped up the event by standing outside the truck, thanking our patrons with a handshake and a smile. Really impressed with these guys and can't wait to work with 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.
