Not really sure where to begin.. I had Chef Tony prepare my husbands 40 the surprise party.. We were both absolutely blown away by the service, quality and perfection of everything that came to the table.. From the settings, timing, food (ahhh.. Food), service, pairings and company. The pairings were like yin and yang.. Complimenting every taste bud.. This was an experience we will never forget.. It was a pleasure having him in our home.. Thanks Chef

Anton catered my mother's 70th birthday party for us for a approx 70-90 people and the food was fabulous. Also the set up was beautiful, and had plenty of food left. Quality of his work is outstanding and would reccommend to anyone. If you want delicious food and beautiful service Anton is the man for the job. He even went above and beyond by making little table menus. Everything turned out GREAT!!! L.S. from New Jersey

I had the pleasure of working with Allison, she came to my house and gave me cooking lessons. She was very patient and fully explained everything she did. I learned so much from these lessons. I am now able to prepare gourmet food in my own kitchen. My husband and family are thrilled! If you want to learn some new things, even starting from scratch call Allison today, she in amazing!

The food was delicious, and the Catering Staff were very friendly, the only issue that we had was a difference in quoted price verse actual price. They were 300.00 over what we were quoted, but I think that was due to some plates being changed.

S&B Catering Catered our 10th Anniversary Party, the did a phenomenal job! Everyone raved about the food and the service. I am a foodie and work in the culinary world so I'm very critical about food/presentation. I have to say, we were very pleased with the results and will definitely be using them for our next event.

Jerry's Kitchen is a gem within the food truck world. Their menu is full of variety and I have never been disappointed by a dish! They have always been respectful about catering to dietary restrictions and food allergies. I have seen them at multiple food truck festivals and catering events and they have the fastest, most courteous service every time.

I frequently order catering From Tasty Table sometimes 2,3,4 times per week primarily for external visitors/prospective customers. Tasty corporate catering menu is fabulous and offers a large variety of hot and cold entrées and packages from which to choose. The food is always delicious, fresh, nicely prepared and presented and there is always more than enough – George and his team do not skimp on service, quality and quantity. In addition, I always order dessert which is typically an assortment of freshly prepared cakes, cookies, puddings/mouse, fruits and tarts. I’ve been ordering from this service for more than two years and am very happy with the ease of the online order process, the follow through, and delivery of a quality product that is reasonably priced.

Bee&Jay Catering was recommended from a friend. I called them and set up an appointment for tasting for my Networking Event. The were very professional and the food was delicious. They are prompt with answering questions when needed. I was contacted the day before the event to make sure nothing else was needed. The day of the event Bee&Jay Catering was on time and setup a hour before it started. Everyone enjoyed the food and couldn't stop talking about their famous meatballs. I would definitely recommend Bee&Jay Catering to anyone that needs catering for a small or big event.

Chaad and his team are truly amazing. Recently, I had a hip hop 80’s party, and each time I begin to feel stressed, Chaad and his team jumped in to make sure everything went smoothly as planned. Amongst all of the catering companies I’ve contacted, Ster Catering was the only one who provided samples of the foods I wanted served at my party. This is a huge plus and I wish other catering companies offered this option. On the day of my event, Chaad and his team arrived early. They assisted with decorating (which they did not have to do). They also provided great food and drinks which everyone loved. I highly recommend Ster Catering and I would definitely hire Chaad and his team for another event.

The whole experience was great. Latonya worked around my schedule and was answering my emails even at 11pm at night. I think the food presentation was outstanding and everything came out great and tasty! The guests were satisfied and I was as well. Only thing I can say was that the chicken tenders were a little dry but that's due to transferring and holding. Other then that, I will be very glad to have her cater my events again. :)

I want to start off by saying thank you to the chef and his wonderful team for everything they prepared for me and my husbands housewarming party! The chef was very reasonable with pricing and when it came to service him and his team went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our night. The food was out of this world our guest couldn’t stop talking about how amazing and delicious everything was. The hit of the night was the BLT sandwiches with their special sauce and the spicy deviled eggs. The Chef was very attentive and made sure he was able to give us everything we wanted the way we wanted it. How many people can Honestly say their caterer answered their call at 11pm?? I mean he really made sure he was available 24/7 ! We were able to actually relax and enjoy our party instead of worrying about guest and food and etc. The feeling was absolutely indescribable. The chefs passion and drive was visible and made our night much more perfect! I look forward to hiring him and his team for future events!

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.
