I would highly recommend Chef Tony to anyone looking for a unique and wonderful dining experience. I surprised my wife with a birthday weekend getaway for herself and 5 of her friends. They all have very unique food needs and preferences varying from food allergies to vegan and just about everything in between. They also all have a taste for high quality, well cooked food. I expressed to Chef Tony all the needs of the dietary my wife and her friends as well as all of my concerns. He put my concerns at ease. The event as to take place in a hotel suite that I had reserved for the ladies. The day before the scheduled event, the hotel told they that they had changed their mind and I could not have Chef Tony cook in their hotel, but would need to use their caterer if I wanted to have such an event. At the very last moment I had to inform Chef Tony of a change in location because of this hotels last minute policy change. Chef Tony readily switched the event to the new location without a complaint or a hitch. The ladies had a 5 course meal with wine pairings for each course. I have heard nothing but great reviews from each of the ladies about their experience. Although we are currently in the midst of a record breaking low temperature winter here in PA, the women were blown away by how fresh and flavorful the fruits and vegetables were in each course. They raved about the fresh crab and perfectly cooked lobster he had prepared for them. One of my wife's friends had an additional food allergy that I was unaware of and therefore had not communicated to Chef Tony. He served a soup that she could not eat. Chef Tony took the soup away and without hesitation, prepared an entirely new entree, plated, and served it to her before the other women finished her soup. And she reports that her new entree was so tasty and well prepared she could not believe that it was not something that he had previously planned on cooking for them. Finally, the ladies were all grateful to learn a great deal about multiple wines and wine pairing. They all ended the evening full and completely satisfied and raving about their dining experience with Chef Tony. In any future engagements that I have requiring a chef, I will be sure to contact Chef Tony without a doubt!

Ummm So Shannon was AMAZING. With little direction to go on by me, she came with more then she promised. Her food was the highlight of my wife's baby shower, for sure. Everyone talked about how good teh food was, people were asking for recipes...it really was above and beyond what i could have asked for. Her prices were resonable and she was an absolute pleasure to have around. We didn't even get BBQ, and the food was delicious. I may be contacting her for a few small orders of her gluten free pastries (which she made for us custom). I really can't say enough about how impressed and thankful I am. Hire, Shannon now if your reading this...You will be glad if you do!

Feast Caterer was challenged to drop off a totally gluten free dinner for my daughter's baby shower. She is seriously allergic to wheat and oats. We had crab cakes, pasta primervera and meatballs all gluten free for 25 people! The food was delicious and the experience was wonderful! I highly recommend chef Anton!

I was very happy with my 2 bartenders, Diane and Mark. They arrived early, dressed in white as i requested, followed my instructions, and kept my guests happy. I would hire them again and again. Dealing with the company was stress-free. They were very responsive and very affordable.

Stone Hill did a wonderful job with our recent wedding of ~200 guests. They were so kind and responsive the entire way through the process of the planning the wedding, and balanced providing professional suggestions with being so flexible. They also took care of things like bartenders and dishware rental and making things easy. On the day above, they went above and beyond to provide wonderful food and service despite a challenging weather situation where we dealt with rain at an outdoor tent wedding. Thanks so much for making our catering stress free and excellent! I would definitely recommend!

Chef Jim provided a lovely evening for our guests at our Christmas cocktail party. His crew seemed to work seamlessly in an unfamiliar kitchen. They couldn’t have been more professional and helpful to us and our guests. Our guests loved the food, esp the tenderloin, turkey bruschetta, sushi, bacon wrapped scallops and bacon maple chestnuts! I had asked for some of our menu to be Gluten free due to my own preferences, and that was disregarded in the desserts which was disappointing. He also skipped an appetizer we agreed upon in our menu, and when asked he said he didn’t think we needed it with all our other food. Next time I’d stress the impotence of GF items and ask him to label the Veg/GF items to make it more clear for myself being Gluten sensitive and for the handful of other guests who had diet restrictions. Overall his crew was wonderful, neat and clean, and they all seemed to work well with our bartender.

We planned a wedding reception for 100 people with only 1 month lead time. Raymond's Catering was one of the Vendors who responded. I was impressed with his response and after talking to him, knew immediately that this was the person I wanted to cater our wedding. Ray was extraordinarily helpful in the decision making process. He explained the pros and cons of the choices we were making and helped us coordinate with other vendors, e.g. Linen providers, etc. He showed up promptly on the day of the reception with his staff. He and his staff went out of their way to make sure that our guests were happy and well fed. The food was delicious. Raymond's Catering has my highest recommendations. I would use him again for any other event that I was hosting

T.A.Z.went above and beyond when accommodating for a gluten allergy. The food was absolutely delicious & no one could tell it was gluten-free which is really an amazing thing! My daughter was so happy that she was at a party that she was able to eat more than just a salad.She also served non-gluten free food that I heard was just as delicious. I would definitely recommend T.A.Z. catering!

Linda catered my wedding reception at the Haddonfield Fortnightly. It was a spring Saturday evening. I cannot say enough good things about her. She was excellent in helping us figure out tables and seating for the Fortnightly. And the evening went flawlessly. The food was delicious (and my husband and I actually got to eat because they served us at our Sweetheart Table, even though it was buffet). Linda kept in touch with us through out the night to see if we needed anything. She also provided a couple of our guests with gluten-free meals. I would highly recommend her.

We used Sunshine Grille to cater our daughters outdoor rustic wedding and we were totally impressed!! Everyone commented on how delicious the food was and the presentation. We have several food allergies in the family and Bill met with us and was able to provide several options for gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. About half way into our reception it began to pour down rain and Bill got soaked but was not deterred from providing all we needed for our guests. I will definitely use Sunshine Grille for future events!

Three Tables catered our wedding. It was for 76 people. The food was terrific, special was the vegetarian lasagne and their style tiramisu. They provided gluten free alternatives. The service was excellent. I am still getting compliments about the food. They were very easy to work with, coming up with many alternate menus for us.

I highly recommend Couch Tomato catering for your next event. They provide a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta, dessert and more. Chris is always very helpful with taking special dietary requests for my vegan and gluten free customers (I am a sales rep for a Pharmaceutical company). My team especially enjoys the tortellini, tomato basil soup, and brownies. They even take care of setup and use place cards to describe each menu item! Two thumbs up.

My experience with Troy's Personal Chef service was spectacular. Chef Troy is very professional and knowledgeable. My family and I follow a gluten- free and vegetarian diet, which most restaurants are not able to accomodate, but Chef Troy was very knowledgeable in this area. I was truly impressed with the meals and weekly menus Chef Troy prepared for my family and immediately recommended him to friends and family members. I highly recommend Troy's Personal Chef Service for any dietary lifestyle.

Where do I even start! Christina and her team at Catering by Vitarelli's were AMAZING! We could not have been happier with our choice. Christina went above and beyond to make sure every detail of our wedding was perfect. Since day one she was there to answer all our questions and put our minds at ease. Her experience and expertise in planning weddings is more than we could have ever hoped for in a Caterer and there is no way we could have pulled off our event without her help! Her team helped coordinate everything from the lighting, DJ, linens, desserts.. you name it! She made the day as stress free as possible. When we walked into Valenzano's Winery on the day of the wedding we were BLOWN AWAY. Christina not only understood our vision but she took it to the next level. The venue exceeded all our expectations and our guests would not stop talking about how lovely the venue looked. Last but definitely not least, the food was to die for. (crab cakes were literally the best we ever had) You will not be disappointed when you book Catering by Vitarelli's!

It's been a year since this dynamic duo catered my event. Besides the food being excellent, the business end was hassle-free. The expectations were met on every level. One of the invitees just recalled how delicious the barbecue sauce tasted. If you don't have your event catered by Law's Homestyle BBQ Fixins, you're doing yup and your guests a disservice.

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.
