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!

Great food! Kim was very flexible in working with us to create a menu that would pair perfectly with our KY Derby event. People literally could not stop talking about how delicious the bourbon-glazed meatballs were! Also, easy to work with and very communicative about how to keep the food fresh and at its best for when the guests arrived (our event was a drop-off catering event). Would definitely use again for another event!

I hired Pour la France for catering services for my daughter's sweet 16th Birthday event and I'm proud to say things went very well. A few things to call out about Pour la France are: 1) Customer Service: I worked with BoJames (Bo) on menu options for this event and Bo was extremely helpful and delivered excellent customer service throughout the process. I was provided with a couple of menu's to choose from and what I liked most was that the menu's provided allowed for me to be flexible with my options. 2) Food delivery: The food ordered was delivered on time (despite the snow) and at the end of the night, the Pour la France crew arrived on-time to pick up the items they delivered. This was a big deal for me as I needed the venue cleaned by the end of the night and having the team be there on time to help with clean up was a big help. 3) Food Quality: Each of the items I ordered tasted great and came with great quality! 4) Food Quantity/Portion Sizes: This category is the only reason I'm giving Pour la France a 4 instead of 5 star rating. Although I worked with Bo on my menu options, I did expect the portion sizes to be a little more robust than what they were. However, I only ordered from the Appetizer and HD menu's so part of the blame is on me for not fully asking the question of whether or not the food I ordered would be enough for a room size of 50 - 60 people. All-in-all I would recommend Pour la France's services and I will likely use them again for future events.

Allison was superb to work with for catering the meal at our wedding reception. From the tasting, to the menu collaboration, and the setup, she and her assistant were amazing. Not to mention the food! My husband and I were astonished at the delicious flavors and unique dishes she served us. So many of our guests took us aside to compliment the food, especially the rellenos! Thanks, Allison, for all of your help to make our wedding awesome!

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!

Tri-Stone catered a wonderful dinner for my mother's 100th Birthday. It was a very special evening. I live in Tucson, so all the arrangements were made long distance - it was easy! The menu was perfect and Matthew's attention to detail made the party a success! Thanks, Matthew!

    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 catered our wedding in New Mexico for 100 guests, and literally almost every single person commented that this was not only the best wedding food they ever had, but one of the best meals, period! Regis and his crew were amazingly kind, professional, fun, and on top of everything. Regis was also super organized and up front with everything he needed for the event, and he was super responsive and communicative. I can not say enough great things about Copacabana Grill and the wonderful people who worked so hard to make our wedding so special! I highly, highly recommend them and am looking forward to finding another opportunity to work with them in the future.

    BBQ King catered a graduation party I hosted with 2 other families, with about 120 guests. They offer quite a few menu choices up front, but they also cheerfully accommodated the additional ideas we brought to them. (They created a sweet potato bar for us, as an entree for vegetarian guests– though the carnivores enjoyed it, too.) I was a pretty high-maintenance customer, trying to coordinate for multiple families, and they were very patient and flexible. As we were planning the party, they were communicative and quick to answer our questions, and their estimate included a clear description of the items and services that were included in the price. The (cold and rainy) day of the party, they stayed nearby and kept the food replenished. The owner, Shane, was very friendly and professional; we enjoyed working with him, and everything ran smoothly. We received a lot of compliments on the food, and I enjoyed leftover BBQ all week.

    For the record, Jenny, is such a kind and honest individual. It took a lot of research and countless hours of contacting other companies to finally find such a gem to cater for our wedding day! I can remember our first conversation and quickly picked up she prided herself on her work ethic and integrity. After working with her for months leading up to our wedding, I can honestly say, she encompasses said traits. Not only did she do an outstanding job connecting with us, meeting with us and our venue, communicating and listening to our needs, but she also cooks DELICIOUSLY! Her Mexican food was delicious and got quite a few compliments from our guest, and so does a great job at serving, cleaning and neatly displaing her food. She even offered delcious vegan and vegetarian food options. Overall, she did an outstanding job on our wedding day; I am eternally grateful to her and her small, but growing business. She truly made our wedding day even more special as it all went by so smoothly. It was such a delight to work with someone so honest, in a money hungry world. You won't regret working with her; she is highly recommendable!

    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!

    I cannot say enough nice things about Joseph! He was such a breeze to work with and he put together the best menu that was fun and fit perfectly with the holiday theme. His food was fresh and so wonderful with such a nice presentation! The table he set was so beautiful! I will definitely be reaching out again the next time we have an event.

    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.
