Chris assisted me with my wedding catering - on top of being such an extremely talented chef, he is so knowledgable about food & catering logistics. I have also eaten at many of the restaurants he has cooked at - amazing! So lucky to know a chef like him.

Tamara did a wonderful job on our in-home cocktail party for around 20 guests. The first telephone call gave me a fantastic impression of what it would be like to work with Tamara and she delivered on all fronts, in the run up to the event and during it. Highlights: 1. Open minded and collaborative on our menu. Tamara built a themed menu targeted to the reason for our event. 2. Warm and cheerful, positive and flexible at all times. 3. Delicious, delicious food including a special vegan/gluten free option for one guest. 4. Came through last-minute when we realized we needed a table (on the day). 5. Competitive pricing.

From start to finish, working with Adolfo was reassuring, engaging, and fun. After describing what I wanted – healthy appetizers and noshes in a public park for 30, 40, or 50 people, he sent photos of exactly what I wound up ordering, after my cousins and I studied his menu in detail, inside and out. He had me at those photos – the skewers with rich-colored dressings and edible orchids, mini-sandwiches framed in fragrant Rosemary, delicate looking shrimp rolls, the bright crudité platter not only looked gorgeous, but everyone raved at how fresh and delicious it all was. Adolfo simply made me look good – best afternoon meal I never cooked. After seeing those photos it was easy to pick a table cloths – white – his platters did all the talking. To compliment the apps, he provided a lovely selection of soft drinks – juices, iced tea, lemonade, sparkling and plain water – chilled on arrival. As my number of guests increased, he suggested what I might want to add and what to stay away from. I greatly appreciated the benefit of his experience. I am terrible at making decisions. Adolfo never pushed me, but when I asked for his suggestion, he gave it, for which I was so grateful. Dealing with me is not easy – stressed, perfectionist, indecisive on a good day, much less as the date of this difficult event drew closer. But he hung in there, editing our contract as the order changed, editing anything I suggested. He was quick to reply, and welcomed me to call, text or email with questions. On the day of the event he was there right on time, with a text in advance to let me know he was on his way. This was just supposed to be a “drop off” but he spent a lot of time with us setting up, including tips on how to make the table look all the more beautiful, with platters arranged at different heights, using the nice packaging in which he delivered them. The trays he uses are beautiful, as are the matching tongs and spoons. He made our afternoon “snack” in a NYC public park absolutely elegant. He even posted little signs in front of each of the platters describing ingredients – something every vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, kosher foodie would surely appreciate. Anyone who is investing in catering is concerned about making a nice gathering. My guest count ultimately grew to 80, and he didn’t flinch – whether 35 or 80 he showed me the same patience, and I went into the event feeling confident about the food. I was delighted that it looked and tasted as beautiful and delicious as the photos indicated. I highly recommend Adolfo. He approached my gathering with a fun, exciting, and very respectful spirit, making me feel like I was his only customer, though I knew he had others this past springtime Saturday. My guests all commented on the lovely food and drink and its presentation. My thanks and gratitude to Adolfo and everyone at Manjar for exceeding my expectations.

Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!

Stenneth was very professional and prompt in all my interactions. He created a great menu to fit vegeterian and vegan dishes. He willingly travelled more than an hour to accomodate food sampling for my family and I before we committed to hire him. His dishes were delicious and unique!

Best experience ever. We needed a bartender for a private birthday party I was organizing for my boss and took a chance on hiring HighLife. Not only did we get a bartender but we got Tyler himself - the owner of HighLife. He was amazing. Our chef we hired from a different company was a disaster and Tyler took it upon himself to help serve the meals, set the tables with wine glasses, pour water/wine throughout dinner, not to mention making the best margaritas on the planet. Extremely reasonable prices with top notch service that is so hard to find these days. Next party I organize I will simply call Tyler. Whether I need a bartender, chef, catering, etc - HighLife will be my only phone call. Thanks for everything!

f despite that it was thanksiving day, and she had her own family, Chef Aless catered my family's special day with superb attention to both the food, which was beyond delicious and plentiful, and presentation. She arrived early with a trolley full of delectable hors d'oeuvres, the best turkey ever baked, and containers full of great accompanying veggies. This was the first time I have ever needed outside catering, but the experience of having Chef Aless was so seamless, and the food was so perfect, that even if I have to invent an occasion,which I will, I know she could handle it with a touch of that marvelous French charm and expertise, and very little interference from me! I'm a cook,specifically a baker. but Chef Aless is a master, and everything was delivered expeditiously and promptly. And with heart... A truly wonderful experience. Thank you so much Alessandra.

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

Did fully vegetarian meal (at my request). Overall experience 5/5 (he was on time, professional, flexible, prepared: minimal work on my part and evening went seamlessly). Presentation 5/5 (everything came out perfectly plated and beautiful), food 4/5 (most was great, some just good), price 4/5 (a little more than I wanted to spend but reasonable compared to other quotes). Ask to get the leftovers!

June 26,2016 Dear Gordon, I wanted to thank you for helping to make my birthday the most wonderful night. The backyard vineyard ~ picnic style menu you prepared was exactly what we discussed and more. And you accommodated all the special dietary needs we had for both our gluten free and vegetarian guests. Each appetizer was beautiful and delicious. Your Jalapeño Poppers, The Sliders on Brioche, Burrata with Tomato Basil Pesto Sauce had everyone talking, just to remember a few. The dinner entrees were also so amazing. Starting with the two beautiful salads, then your homemade hot and sweet sausage with fennel, peppers and onions, they were such a hit! And then the desserts! Thank you, Thank you for my Gluten Free Chocolate Torte! The Trifle was so pretty and the homemade Vanilla Ice Cream was such a treat! It was so easy and enjoyable to work with you, you met all of my thoughts with great ideas and put together the perfect menu. My guests were impressed by your menu and preparation and had such generous portions! Thank you again for all the extra effort you put into my night. Thank you for the special surprises you created shared with us. And thank you for leaving my kitchen cleaned and organized. Please feel free to share my review with any future clients. WE are your biggest fans! Wishing you all the best! Michelle & John (John Ryan, Jillian Madison & Cole) Pappas

I hired Platter Matters Catering for my 40th Birthday Party. Ivett did a phenomenal job planning the entire event! She took care of all the rentals and flower arrangements, too. Bernadett helped me create a custom menu(many allergies in the family). The staff was very friendly and professional. All of my guests raved about their food and service. My kitchen was left spottless at the end of the event. I highly recommend them!! Emily Westport, CT

I have had the great pleasure of being a customer and guest on several occasions of Cornbread26's catering services. Each time I was blown away by their outstanding customer service, food quality and flavor, and beautiful execution of the event's decor. Claude and Craig work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that their clients don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying the experience and the food.

It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!

I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with Chef Julz on various events. It was wonderful to work with her! The food was beyond delicious and looked like in a gourmet magazine. She easily accommodated my request for vegetarian/vegan options when necessary. She blended into the event easily that people didn’t even notice her, replenishing food and cleaning up. She left the place clean and tidy – making the whole process look easy and effortless. I truly recommend Chef Julz to anyone who wants an unforgettable party!

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.
