Chef Tony cooked us the most DELICIOUS top quality - fresh - dinner ever. Over a month later, my family is still raving about how tasty my birthday dinner was that Chef Tony cooked us. My birthday dinner menu included: -Rustic flat bread pizza with roasted eggplant, sundried tomatoes, arugula, manchego cheese with balsamic paint (the flatbread was perfectly crispy and the flavors came together amazing) -Mexican seafood ceviche (marinated sea bass scallops with avocado salad and lime crispy tortilla chips) I don't eat fish but the rest of my family devoured it and even I tried some and really enjoyed it!! It looked so light, tasty and refreshing that I couldn't help it! -French bree strawberries with toasted almonds in greek film cups (the bree and strawberry together was the perfect balance and broke up the courses perfectly) -Mini maryland crab cakes over granny smith apple cole slaw (everyone in my family went back for seconds and my brothers had 3 each! to the point where I had to stop them so they wouldn't be too full for the next courses. The slaw was soooooooooooooo tasty, I wish I knew how to make that as the perfect side-dish) -Spanish style Arroz con pollo (tomato rice chicken and chorizo) WORDS CAN NOT EXPRESS HOW GOOD THIS TASTED!! We literally could not stop eating it. This was legit real deal spanish arroz con pollo and better than I have eaten at any of the tons of spanish restaurants I have visited) -Cuban spiced grilled pork tenderloin with a pickled ginger mango slaw on a flour tortilla (once again the slaw was made completely different and incredibly flavorful and refreshing. It was the perfect topping for the soft tortilla tacos and the pork was very tasty and tender) -Argentinian steak (grilled latin filet mignon) with roasted red pepper saffron sauce served with whipped sweet potatoes sand grilled asparagus (by this point we were all incredibly full but HAD HAD HAD to eat this because that is how good it was. What an amazing way to end the dinner courses. The filet mignon did not need a knife at all and literally melted in my mouth. I WISH I watched Chef Tony make the sweet potatoes - they were the best I have ever eaten and I am huge food as well as my family. It had the perfect balance of sweet to it and I still am craving sweet potatoes made just like that! The asparagus was a perfect vegetable to go with it along with the home-made gravy he drizzled over the plate) -For dessert we had creme brûlée, italian cheese cake, flourless chocolate cake and warm chocolate chip cookies... For creme brûlée (one of my favorite desserts) Chef Tony even let us cook the top with the fire ourselves! Just typing this menu all over again makes me hungry thinking about the 5 star restaurant quality food Chef Tony made us. Everyone including myself literally loved every single food he served us. I can't express enough how much my family and I enjoyed having Chef Tony cook for us at home. I must have used the word flavorful 100x in this review, but that is literally the only way to explain it. Usually we go out for the family birthdays for all of the siblings, but this was just such a fun new twist that now everyone in my family wants to do this again with Chef Tony! Especially my brother who hates eating out, but the rest of the family always wants to eat out because sometimes it is nice to not have to cook...and now we have the perfect balance by getting a private chef for us like Chef Tony instead. This was the first time I ever hired a private chef and Chef Tony by far exceeded my expectations. He was also incredibly easy to work with on the menu. I can be a bit indecisive at times and I changed things about 3 times and Chef Tony was super easygoing about it and sent me back a new menu each time catering to exactly what I asked for. Since I hired him a week and a half before my birthday, he was very patient with me considering. He faceted with my sister to see her kitchen and go over everything we may or may not need. Oh, did I also mention he brought adorable blue blue linen napkins and made a printed menu with name on heading for every single person in my family eating, which was such a sweet and unique gesture on his end. He was also very friendly at my sister's house and was enjoyable to be around. I will 10000% be calling Chef Tony again and I have already told so many of my friends about him. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY - IT IS WORTH IT! Especially now that winter is coming, who wants to get dressed up and go out in freezing weather when you can hang out in the comfort of your home for quality time with family and friends, put the kids to bed without having to hire a babysitter, have some drinks, play games and get served 5 star quality restaurant food (if not better) ?!?! I am so happy I discovered Chef Tony and I look forward to definitely working again with him in the future. Also Chef Tony is a professional sommelier, but since we were drinking mixed drinks we didn't get the wine pairing included. I read very positive reviews about Chef Tony's wine pairing and my family and I very much look forward to trying that out eventually with Chef Tony. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Chef Tony for giving me one of those most memorable birthday dinners ever, you truly impressed my family, fiancé's family & myself to the point where like I said, everyone still brings you and your cooking up. I wish I could truly explain in words how positive this review really was it, but I did my very best to try and put into words. Bravo Chef Tony, looking forward to working with you again soon!! ~Thea Francesca

I loved working with Shannon and I look forward to hosting another event so we can work together again. I felt so confident that they had everything covered! We chose to serve the following: Apps: bacon wrapped scallops, shrimp & avocado cups, caprese sticks, antipasti sticks, bruschetta Mains & sides: lean brisket, chipotle sweet potato mash, Mexican street corn, chicken stuffed with mozzarella RRP and Prosciutto, pesto tortellini, grilled veg with balsamic drizzle and crabcakes. People are still talking about the food. I believe firmly that the food is a HIGHLY important factor at any event and can make an event memorable. We were thrilled with the food and service Hog Day provided.

We booked Feast Cateres for my son's High School Grauation Party. I would first like to comment on Chef Anton's superior professionalism. He was very easy to talk to when planning our menu and answered all our questions. We had originally thought that we would have 90 people, but wound up having 124 RSVP. We were able to give Anton 2 weeks notice for the head count and Chef Anton had no problem accommodating the the increase of guests. The day of the event there were terrible storms and flash flooding. Anton did better then show up on time. He came a little early, which really put our minds at ease. Now, lets talk Food... All we can say is WOW! We got raves from all our guests. Everyone adored the fresh Brochetta, Chicken Parmesan, and the Penne in vodka sauce, However, the two big BIG hits of the night were the Pulled Pork Italiano and the Asian Dumplings. I generally shy away from pulled pork because it can get a little boring either in pork gravy or in a way too sweet BBQ sauce. Anton prepared the pulled pork with fresh Italian herbs and spices and it was moist and positively delectable. In fact, we took the left over pork to our church for a second Graduation Party on Sunday and it got raves from the 2nd crowd, too! The Asian dumpling with fresh ginger sauce were the real show stopper. My husband won't even order steamed dumplings in a Chinese restaurant, but could not stop eating Anton's home made dumplings. After both parties we had several requests for business cards and gave out a stack to many of our family and friends, so it goes without saying that we would definitely highly recommend Feast Caterers to anyone planning their next event. Thank you Anton for making our event most memorable. Wendy, Doug, Chad and Gabe Menz

I sing the praises of this company enough. My mother’s 90th birthday would not have happened without Linda and her amazing staff and delicious food. In addition, her prices were extremely reasonable. I have a broken foot and the ladies she sent were outstanding. I gave them almost no directions. They knew what to do and were extremely professional! Linda’s Stromboli was the hit of the party! Everyone wanted to know where it came from. Working with Linda was a dream! She went above and beyond what you would expect. I highly recommended you hire this company. The are fabulous!

Melissa made the entire project fun and easy. She provided several creative options for our event. The final menu was a perfect blend of delicious and beautiful. All of my guest raved about the food. Not only is Melissa a phenomenal chef, she was also kind and a top notch professional. Melissa will be my go to caterer for all future parties! I cannot recommend her highly enough. Our menu: Appetizers- seafood ceviche, cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, shooters of butternut squash soup. Dinner- grilled flank steak and tilapia, grilled carrot fries, roasted potatoes, and cilantro rice Everything was fantastically delicious!!

Allison has worked with me on many occasions teaching me the necessary tools to become a good cook. I felt very comfortable learning even the most basic skill such as using a knife properly, making simple and some not so simple sauces and also learning to put a menu together for a dinner party. I can say she is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and very talented. She really makes cooking, and creating delicious masterpieces look so easy. I've used Allison as a caterer for many different occasions. It's amazing to watch her make gormet dishes with ease for crowds of 12 or 100. She was a professional from start to finish and left my house as clean as she found it. Thanks Allison, I'm more comfortable in the kitchen however, I'm still going to use you for when I really want to impress family and friends.

Jim & Cindy were such a great find for our May wedding! Cindy helped alleviate a lot of stress and questions I had, especially since I’m not in the wedding industry, and really helped me out with her tips and tricks! After speaking with a few other "big" caterers, talking to Cindy felt so personal and attentive. She really took the time during my initial phone call to get to know what I was looking for, our price point, what we were like as a couple, and what I was hoping for from our day. Phone calls seemed to be the best way to get into contact with either of them, as opposed to email or social media, which was fine with me. Since we went with Shady Maple for our cake, they even picked it up on their way, which was a huge help! Our venue had very strict rules, and they were willing to negotiate a fair price so that we could use their services, but still abide by the venue. On the day of the wedding, Jim and Cindy were great! The food was amazing, they helped break down at the end of the night, and really went above and beyond. I’m so happy we went with DuJour!!

We had a tasting today, with Sodiah and Jim, the chef...and hired them on the spot! Not only is the food delicious and fresh, but Sodiah and Jim were delightful to be with! They took so much time to talk with us and work within our budget-- there's no " package deal" or set menus, as we have experienced interviewing other caterers. You tell them what your budget is, and they are so helpful and wonderful...we feel so blessed! Our daughter's wedding is in June, and we so look forward to not only a lovely, succulent meal-- we are excited to be with them! FIVE STAR NOW, AND I'M SURE IT WILL END UP A FIVE+ STAR ON JUNE 18th! We highly recommend this catering team....AWESOME.

I hired F.E.A.S.T. to provide catering for a Philly Tech Week event. We went with an appetizer medley, and everything was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the roasted vegetable tray was. Jay was on time, got everything set up in an orderly fashion while I was running around dealing with other things, and was easy to work with on ordering/scheduling. Thanks Jay!

Tanya catered a Christmas gathering at our home for 10 adults + kids with appetizers, buffet dinner and dessert. We had hired a chef the previous year and didn't have a great experience...this year however our guests RAVED about the food! Tanya was professional, brought all of her own equipment to cook and serve, and she and her assistant left my kitchen in great shape. She was easy to work with in the planning stages, promptly responded to calls and e-mails and sent me an extensive menu of choices for course selections which she modified as needed. The night was relaxed and at the end my guests commented that they really couldn't remember what was served the previous year, but the food was delicious this year! There were plenty of leftovers to be enjoyed as well. I would not hesitate to hire her again!

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.

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.

Pictured below is a salad with pickled strawberries, grilled chicken, dandelion greens, Gorgonzola, strawberry vinegarette. The other is monkfish on rice with a side of sea beans and accented with lemon zest.

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.
