Maggie did an amazing job catering our Thanksgiving dinner. The whole family raved about the meal. We were all in agreement that this was the best Thanksgiving meal we ever had. My brother kept taking photos to show off this fantastic feast to his friends to make them jealous. The turkey was so moist and delicious, the pecan pie and the homemade whip cream were delectable. I loved the stuffing and the gravy. Everything was perfect. Maggie was a joy to work with and was open to ideas. She delivered the meal on time (in a snow storm!) and it was hot and ready to go. There was an abundant amount of food so were able to enjoy the meal again as leftovers. The next time I'm in Denver I will be asking for Maggie’s help with catering. Thank you Maggie!

Kim couldn't have been a better choice for our wedding caterer. She was so personable, helpful, calming, and efficient, not to mention a fabulous cook! She handled everything from start to finish with the expertise of a five star chef. Everyone raved about our meal, which featured Beef Wellington. She completely took over the kitchen, but was so unobtrusive that you barely knew she was there. I would recommend her over and over for any event.

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.

Dustin Brandt provided a phenomenal meal for my family when hired to cater a private dinner to celebrate a birthday. He was prompt, the food was phenomenal, and he was very professional. We could not be happier with the meal he provided, and he worked around our many varied allergies! I would highly recommend his services.

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.

Knife and Pepper catered my wedding (150 guests, outdoor venue, street tacos and sopapilla bar), and I could not have been happier. The food was FANTASTIC, the presentation lovely, and the wait staff was professional and kind. I didn't have to lift a finger as everything was just taken care of-- including special options for my vegetarian and gluten free guests and family members! I, too, was pampered, and my new husband and I got to simply sit back and simply enjoy our special day. THANK YOU Knife and Pepper for creating such wonderful memories. P.S. my in-laws are still raving about the carne asada, and I seriously want to steal your shrimp ceviche recipe! Delish!

We are so happy we went with Xim catering for our wedding! Lenny was a joy to work with. He was so enthusiastic and attentive, and really listened to all of our needs to create a menu that was delicious, interesting, and within our budget. He went above and beyond with our requests and even made small portions of each dish without onions to accommodate my mom's food allergy. He also accommodated some peanut allergies and some vegetarian special requests. The food was so delicious (still dreaming about the chicken molé!) and the signature cocktails were incredible too! The decorations at the buffet line and the bar really helped set the mood. Lenny did all that he could to make sure that everything was taken care of so we could enjoy our wedding day. We didn't have a wedding planner or a coordinator so we really appreciated that he made us feel so at ease before the big day. The staff that Lenny brought to the event were so professional, courteous, and hardworking. I can't say enough good things about our experience!

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.

Shane was great to work with and was very responsive when I had questions. He even altered his sides to be veggie friendly, provided gluten free pies for dessert and even made bbq tofu for our non-meat eaters. My teammates (150+) ate every bit of food put out for them at our employee picnic/season wrap party and raved that it was delicious. I would hire BBQ Kings again in a heart beat and recommend them to anyone looking for great BBQ variety!

I can't tell you what a wonderful experience we had with Callan. I hired her to come cook dinner for 9 girls (bachelorette party) this past Saturday night. We had many dietary restrictions and Callan provided many different options that all sounds yummy. I've attached pictures of her heirloom tomato salad, sweet potato gnocchi, roasted butternut squash and salted caramel brownies. Great presentation and even better flavor! Callan is kind, professional and provides incredible quality in her work. I would highly recommend her for any type of party up to 100 people!

There was an Asian Sauce that we are still trying to duplicate. I will hire them for all my events in the future.

    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!

    Tony of GB Catering made this experience so easy for us from the planning stage to the end. He provided several suggestions and we decided to go with a Mexican theme and chose the taco bar. He provided us with several menu items to choose from for appetizers, dinner and desserts. He also made an amazing sangria with many fresh fruits. The contract was sent timely and was simple and easy to understand and everything was so professional. He arrived exactly when he said he would be there and set everything up a beautiful serving table. He made sure everything was to temperature and remained so throughout the party. There was extra food in case we had additional guests. The food was so yummy and packed with flavor. The chicken and beef were uniquely seasoned and the salsa and guacamole were so good . The dessert flan looked so lovely and the flavor was amazing. We will definitely use GB for our next gathering and are considering trying the barbecue.

    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.
