Maggie made salads, iced tea and hors d'oeuvres for my party and they were all excellent. The presentation and flavor were great. My guests loved the food. She was on time and most accommodating to my needs. I highly recommend her catering service and will have her back in the future.

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!

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!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

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.
