Bartenders were extremely helpful and responded thoroughly to all of my many questions. They gave us signature cocktail ideas and shopping lists. They arrived early to setup for the event and were very knowledgeable and efficient. I will definitely hire them again and highly recommend them to anyone who needs bar tending service.

Our experience with Rosemary and Thyme's catering service was wonderful. Jeffrey Sternberg was very professional and timely. His quote and menu selection was the 2nd response we received. Jeffrey was readily available to answer questions, comments or concerns via email communication and telephone conversations. The food was delicious and our "Going Away/Baby Shower" office lunch reception went off without a hitch. Jeffrey personally delivered the food well in advance of our reception. Thank you Jeffrey!

Frank did a fantastic job. He was professional and amiable -- and played a major role in making my party successful. He helped me with bar planning and brought his own portable bar and bar tools. I plan on using him again for my next large event and I wholeheartedly recommend him for yours.

Barbara was SO helpful with our 50-guest party! She arrived on time ready to jump right in- she helped us bring in the catering trays, set up a beautiful buffet, warmed and passed hors d'oeuvres, made great cocktails throughout the night, and clean everything up at the end of the night. She was very friendly to our guests (a few of whom want to hire her). This was the first time I ever hired someone to help with a party (I usually do everything myself!), but this was well worth the expense. We'd definitely hire Barbara in the future!

From start to finish via customer support, service, options, pricing, flexibility, courteous, delivery, set-up, pickup, food presentation, excellent tasting food. This caterer/catering service is without question, without doubt, unequivocally the best! Thank you for Exquisite for being everything you advertise, and even more. The milestone event was a big success largely due to your service. At least several guest preserved the napkins with your contact info, and 1 guest will be contacting you service shortly for their own upcoming event. The food was awesome not only in presentation, but in taste as well! Thank you again!

The Catering Group has been catering our Employee Luncheons and annual picnic for over a decade. I cannot say enough about the professionalism from the initial quote, the planning and the execution. I receive many compliments from our guests for the quality of the food and the professionalism of the staff. They take care of everything, we decide on the menu and after that they make me look good! From the presentation to the quality of the food, to the polite courteous staff, they do it all. If you need to plan an event I cannot recommend them highly enough. I look forward to seeing Marty and his staff every year.

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

Cafe Delish catered my husbands surprise 30th birthday party.. they were absolutely amazing! Renee helped me keep everything a secret.. made sure she didn’t reach out to me if she thought he would be around..the food was SO delicious!! It was displayed beautifully and tasted absolutely amazing. Everyone is STILL raving about the food. The appetizers were passed around during our little mingeling hour and presented beautifully and the taste was great. I’ve had many people tell me they have never tasted chicken like this. The chicken was so moist and had so much flavor. The bartender was very sweet, professional and made the drinks so fast there was never a line. I will definitely be using them when I need another caterer. You won’t go wrong with this wonderful company!!!Thank you SO MUCH Renee! You made our party unforgettable!

I was very happy with Pro Events. We had pink drinks for the baby shower and not only were they cute but tasted amazing. Edgar was very friendly and approachable, prompt and did not leave until everything was set up for the bar tender, I couldnt have asked for a nicer bar tender, she was great, polite and attentive. Will hire them again soon.

Chef Levita did a wonderful job catering my mother's 90th anniversary celebration for 15 people. The food was wonderful and the presentation lovely. He helped me make some very wise choices for my group which I also appreciated. These included summer rolls, sushi, sliced tenderloin, Casear salad, haricots vertes with garlic roasted potatoes and a wonderful, freshly-baked chocolate cake. He and his assistant Carlos made my gathering a great success.

Sidney the owner did a great great 👍 job my wife and I were very appreciative for her professionalism Sidney had made my wife’s favorite drink ready when she walked in to her surprise birthday party. Sidney made sure she walked throughout the part and took orders at their tables not just behind the bar at their tables. It was a great pleasure she was very professional I would highly recommend her company. We will definitely use them again.

Rosalia's food is AMAZING!! It's like having your grandmother cooking for you, preparing your favorite meals every week. It's also so easy to order online - plus I can customize my order and swap out ingredients for healthy options. Love that! I've even had them cater a party at my house and their empanadas are to die for - they were gobbled up in seconds! The kids loved them - a real crowd pleaser.

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.
