Chris and his sommelier Roman cooked us up a night to remember. We enjoyed cocktails with gin with cucumber and ginger, plenty of tasty hors d'oeuvres (including wrapped stuffed dates, mixed tomato croutons and sailboats of green apple, brie and baconesque prosciutto) and a delicious main course of filet and rosemary potatoes. The dessert was a decadent chocolate sponge cake with tiramisu & pecan ice cream. Chris and Roman came to our Airbnb three hours before cocktail time to set up and start cooking; they cleaned up before leaving. They indulged us in political and gastronomical discussions during their prep time too :) An evening of a relaxed yet gastronomical indulgence with super friendly and profession team. Thank you, Chris and Roman, for a wonderful birthday celebration for Fiona!

My fiance and I hired Juste Hors D'Oeuvres and Much More, LLC for our intimate wedding of 100 guest and could not have been happier with our decision! Marylyn and Neal were such a pleasure to work with throughout every step of our wedding planning process. Our guests raved about the food (from appetizers to entrees) and couldn't get enough of it! Both Marylyn and Neal went above and beyond our expectations, providing us with quotes and contact information for lighting, equipment rentals, alcohol and even ice! Our guests gave us an abundance of compliments of the entire Juste Hors D'Oeuvres staff that worked our reception. What we were most impressed by was Marylyn's ability to provide exactly what we wanted while keeping within our price range. Overall, the folks at Juste Hors D'Oeuvres helped make our wedding as perfect as we could've hoped! We both recommend hiring them for your catering needs, and we look forward to working with Marylyn and Neal again in the future. Thanks again guys!

I can not say enough great things about Rich Stein. From the moment he walked in, Rich and Paul Kane had a great energy and presence that added to the buzz of my wedding day. They were communicating and engaging. All of that would have been for nothing if the food was not good. The food was EXCELLENT. The eggplant rollatini was incredible and everyone talked about how good it was. The food was fresh and flavorful. I can't forget the broccoli rabe and sausage. Paul was great in that he put his hands to do whatever was needed to help, from appetizers to the ice to cake. I also want to throw in that, this being a backyard wedding not many people wanted this small affair but Rich took the job and made this small backyard wedding feel like a much larger wedding with the quality of food. Rich and Paul far surpassed any of the praise of previous reviews and I don't think this review can show how appreciative I am of Rich Stein for making my wedding day special. Thank you, Rich. Thank you, Paul.

I used Manjar Boutique Catering for my husband's 40th bday party, here is what my guests had to say: "Honestly I thought the servers were great…polite, friendly and they kept busy. And the food was great and they kept coming and spaced it out well. Main guy was nice too" "The staff were amazing always coming around with food...Bartender was cool and the food was great.. Truffle grilled cheese 👌🏼👌🏼delish" "The food was really good. The servers were always offering food, I had no complaints at all. Food to me was excellent, I would use them if I had a party." "They were great and very attentive. The shrimp was yummy." "Amazing! And delish!" "The food was good! I loved the grilled cheese" "They were excellent. Friendly on-point. Food, servers, bartender and host were very nice." "So as for the food & service I thought they were doing a great job by consistently bringing out the food. I don't think they ever missed anyone. The food was good, perfect for the event not overdone. Bartender I thought was just ok, but the staff were very nice. They were def working and doing their job." My only critique is I feel I was overcharged, $350 for the "Full Bar Mixer Set-up" ($413 total with 18% service charge) there's no way drink mixers (coke,sprite, seltzer, etc.. & ice) cost that much & was a little upset about that. Hopefully in future parties when I use Adolfo he can make it up to me (-;

I was really satisfied with the cake from Laura. I had a red velvet with chocolate mousse with cream cheese frosting cake. It looked so beautiful and tasted really delicious. She made sure I got the wedding cake I deserved. Great value for less price.

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!

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

Dorothy truly outdid herself! She listened to our needs, and provided an abundance of cake samples, above and beyond what we expected, and truly made the decision hard to narrow down the flavors because they were all so good! I provided her with an image of the cake we wanted and it came out perfectly. There was more than enough cake for our 120 guests and at the end of the party there was none left over which I have never seen at an event, so that just goes to tell you how tasty her cake was! We decided on chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse on one layer, and a yellow cake with golden oreos on the other; everyone loved both of them, but I must say that the chocolate cake was a true fan favorite! If you want a quality design with a moist and great tasting cake, Dees Desserts is the way to go!

Chef Pearl is so talented! The cake was breath-taking. We didn't even want to cut into it. We requested west indian black cake. I didn't know what design/look to go with. Chef Pearl paid attention to my description of the dress and the feel I was going for and sent several beautiful inspiration photos of her previous designs. She came up with something that was unique, romantic, and perfect for us! The cake was absolutely delicious. It was moist, the icing was perfect, and everyone loved it. Chef Pearl accommodated us when we changed the dates and needed it much sooner. She delivered directly to the venue and packaged it so it would not be damaged. The owner of the restaurant had a slice and was really impressed. If you don't have time for a tasting and don't want to worry about getting the decorations right, you just wish you could order it and know it will be perfect when it arrives- stop stressing yourself out looking around for a baker and hire Chef Pearl asap. You get the whole package (design *and* flavor) and her prices are more reasonable than anyone else. She communicated with me by text, phone, and email, and worked around our schedules.

I had the pleasure and sweet surprise of JADA's Delights at my unplanned 35th Birthday celebration!!! The cake was hands down beautiful and truly reflected my personality. The taste was full of flavor, richness, and quite delicious. In addition, the cream inside the cake was light and fluffy with a hint of sweetness! The ability to create two different flavors within one cake is a great skill and adds flare. Overall I was very impressed and would definitely request pastries from JADA's Delights in the future.

I've had the privilege of sampling many of Tristan's dishes. They are truly delicious and very creative. He allows the senses to heighten. The presentation of the food itself makes me go Wow! The rich aromas draw me in. The fresh tastes seals the deal. And just when you think it's over then the Ahhhmazing textures are the icing on the cake. They range from velvety smooth mac and cheese, lasagna to crunchy fresh salsas, guacamole, colorful sweet and savory salads. He is an artist; food and the kitchen is his canvas. And it shows in his creations. I highly recommend Tristan and will continue to do so in the future!

Hiring Ron and Miracle Catering for my wedding on 9/10/16 was the best decision we could have made. From the very start, Ron was very professional and quick to respond to all questions and inquiries. He set up a taste testing before the wedding at my parent's house and from that moment on, we were sold. The food was amazing! I never was that excited about a salad before. Ron was also flexible with planning a menu around our needs and style as we wanted an appetizer/station only wedding that was heavily vegetarian. Ron provided helpful suggestions to make the menu diverse and well-rounded. Ron and his team were able to manage our difficult venue setting that had little indoor space and no kitchen. The day of our wedding went so smoothly mainly due to the staff at Miracle Catering. We rented linens through them and Ron's team did a beautiful job setting up the room without any directions. The staff were so friendly and helpful the entire night. The food was beautifully displayed. All of our guests raved about the food that included brie and roasted apple crostini, tacos, mini burgers, tomato soup shooters with grilled cheese, dumplings, mini baked potatoes with goat cheese just to name a few! We had a pasta station and an Asian station (that had a beef/chicken and a tofu stir fry option). We also used Ron's baker and the cakes were delicious and went perfectly with the ice cream sundae bar. My only regret is that I did not eat more at my wedding and did not take home a doggie bag. I am actively seeking another opportunity to hire Miracle Catering again and would highly recommend them for any event.

Britta catered a wonderful dinner party we threw for about 19 people. The food was light and delicious -- a threw course meal with a yummy salad, roast chicken and berries & cream for dessert. Perfect for a dinner party, savory without being too heavy and weighing our guests down. Britta worked with us to come up with an outstanding menu that was within our budget. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Jasmine and her sons were on point across the board--their food, presentation and personalities were all terrific! This was a two-day, outdoor event, that unfortunately fell on the hottest weekend of the summer--temps in the 90's and choking humidity. No complaints from Jasmine & company--they were real troopers. Repeatedly had to send out for more ice as the temps were melting it so fast--everything was kept cold and fresh on the ice. Wraps included a scrumptious hummus and vegetable--a non-flavored hummus, but with just the right seasonings to bring out the best. Breakfast offerings included plain yogurt parfait, with fresh fruit and homemade granola-so yummy. All excellent selections. And last, but not least, a clean & sanitary set up. Thank you Occasions Catering & Cupcakery! Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a fine, reliable caterer!

We have had 4 different parties with Creative Dream Parties! Each party has outshined the last. Working with Debbie is so amazing. She goes above and beyond. Each person at the party feels so catered to. I especially love how Debbie gets every detail right. We have had a princess pirate themed party, a superhero party, a Pokemon party and we even had our son's baptism party with Creative Dreams. The party favors are so over the top. You won't be disappointed. Debbie's eye for detail can't be replicated. One of the most unique features of this awesome party space is the separate area for the parents... Parents can socialize, eat, and mingle while enjoying the festivities with a mimosa in hand. This is also one of the largest party spaces in Manhattan that I've ever been to. Debbie doesn't just create the party, she creates your child's dream party! No request is too great. My son wanted a Rescue Bot cake with tons of characters and Debbie made it happen! This is party planning at its finest. Whether we've asked for a candy Buffet, ice cream sundae buffet, or setting up a scrumptious buffet for the parents, Debbie has made it happen! Debbie simply rocks and travelled and created the baptism party in a restaurant that I chose. She worked hand in hand with the restaurant owners to create the coolest baptism party, ever! The kids were entertained and the parents were able to party without a single worry! Debbie's staff really is superb and are well trained. I love the fact that Debbie also created a joint birthday party in a local Italian restaurant for our sons. She decked the place out and the restaurant owners were blow. Away by what she did to the place. I think of Debbie as my party planning fairy godmother.

Blue Marble is the BEST Ice Cream I have ever tasted, and all my friends agree. Not only is it ORGANIC, but its CREAMY, and leaves no aftertaste like so many others do. They have a variety of flavors to choose from and I spend way too much time in front of the grocery freezer trying to decide so.... I always get a few. YUM

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
