Maggie was very easy to work with and answered every question I had on time. She set up and served our rehearsal dinner personally which gave it that extra special touch. Only wish I had asked her to add a salad dressing, as so many of our guests made "taco salads".

We hired The Crazy Caterer for a one time private chef experience for a 70th birthday party and they were amazing!! Tentative, responsive, and reliable. Everyone at the party was impressed and loved the personal touch and food. Great time with such short notice and the food was tasty. We are looking forward to working with Kim and Stephen again!!!

Food was tasty. Ordered the Taco bar. Wish there would have been a warmer for the tortillas. Tortillas were cold by the time we started eating.

We had a wonderful experience with Dustin for a quaint dinner on our annual “sisters” weekend. He created the perfect menu based on a few requests I made to make everyone happy! All the courses were delicious. The scallops were heavenly and prepared just right. All the flavors combined so well and the ingredients so fresh. We enjoyed some wine while we watched Dustin prepare the gourmet meal and he was so gracious to share both some facts about himself and the food he was artfully creating. His lovely wife assisted and was just as delightful. Just as mouthwatering as the meal, the dessert was over the top with fresh Palisade Peaches. The kitchen was spotless when he left and we captured the moment with a picture for the scrapbook. If you are looking for a special night with every detail attended to- look no farther than Dustin at Underground Fine Dining. I am already looking for another event to invite Dustin back!

I hired Mama Lisa's for my own birthday party last July as I did not want to have to worry about a thing when hosting. Had a wonderful experience! The food was excellent & the entire process was so streamlined with no muss no fuss. The bacon wrapped dates are delicious! My guests kept asking who catered the event. :) Also the jicama salad for the street tacos is a must have!!

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 had a caterer cancel at the last minute for our wedding (eek!). Carrie was willing to work within our tight budget and she communicated with us regularly and promptly to get everything in place in a very short amount of time. The food was great, the taco meat in particular. Thanks k you so much for your last minute help feeding our guests!

Xim catering did a charcuterie spread for our wedding cocktail hour. Because they had a large event the same weekend, they were able to lump our event in under the large orders that got him discount pricing. This was an incredible value for us, and he came and set everything up with so much care! It was beautiful, delicious, and a great price. Plus the owner is kind, helpful, and easy to work with. Definitely recommend!

Chef Rick was terrific! He was the perfect mix of asking me what I'd like and making suggestions based on his experience and specialties. He kept in touch with me before the event so I was comfortable that we were on the same page. He was attentive during the event, yet very much in the background. My friends were really impressed with the taco bar! I'd recommend Chef Rick to anyone!

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.

We're a pretty laid back firm. J Street took their time and laid out the food, which was perfect, as the party progressed. No hurry, so everyone ate what they wanted, when they wanted. It was perfect. And everyone enjoyed ordering their personal dinner from the food truck. It was the perfect way to do a private catering event, with food that we couldn't get anywhere else.

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.

Carter's Creative Catering provided delicious food for a recent high school reunion I hosted in Fort Collins. Holly was extremely helpful and easy to work with. They delivered the food right on time and displayed it beautifully, plus they picked up early the next morning and made the entire process so easy and smooth. Most importantly- the food was a huge hit!

Lyndsey was super helpful in helping me to plan an engagement party for my sister. I told her the general theme (Spain/ tapas), and she took it from there! Everyone was raving about the food- both the savory and sweet dishes were awesome. She was very flexible with my budget and patient with my timeline. Thank you for everything!

    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 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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
