I had to have last minute services for a dinner party event this week. Chef Tamara connected with me within 5 minutes and assisted me with all the details of planning a successful dinner party that was within my budget and beautifully presented and all food was delicious! Chef Tamara has an extensive menu to choose from and everything that I ordered got outstanding reviews. I was impressed with her menu choices, quality and presentation was a "WOW" moment. Tamara worked within my budget and helped me with ideas to pull off this quick event (which was the next day) and made this experience seamless. I had guests asking for her contact information and many positive comments were made about the scrumptious dinner, selection of entrees and unique display of desserts that she provided. She had a dessert display that was just incredible! It has been a long time since I have utilized services of a caterer, I highly recommend Chef Tamara as she manages every detail and I can honestly say she made my event one that I was proud of. My guests were happy and I will call her again!

Vivian was absolutely incredible, no other way to say it. was not expecting food to be nearly as good as it was considering how reasonable the cost was compared to other caterers -- but when she pulled out the prime rib from the oven... I said to myself...."the game has just changed". And it didn't stop there--- EVERYTHING SHE COOKED was amazing and all my guests agreed. From the prime rib and pasta all the way down to the meatballs. She cooked for nearly 100 people in my very basic kitchen on new years eve. Had zero problems with anything being late or unprepared. If you find yourself looking at and considering her profile--- I can say look no further. Shes amazing and her crew was lovely as well.

Emerald Catering was phenomenal. I had a reception in which 2 days before, the beverage vendor had to cancel. I had a vision of specialty drinks in which Laura and her team brought to life. Everyone loved the food: Prime Beef Sliders, Mimosa Salad, Gourmet Sandwiches, Deviled Eggs (love the garlic flare), along with condiments which were beautifully arranged. I would highly recommend Emerald Catering. They are my go to.

I have had one of the best experiences with Luis from Lou's Catering. His presentation and food are top rate. Every guest was wowed by the amount of food and taste of all then food. Luis is patient and eager to please. I was extremely happy and very pleased with Luis. The experience exceeded by expectations. This was the first time I used Thumbtack and the first time I hired a caterer to cater all the food and also do all the BBQing at the party, it was an awesome experience. I would hire Luis everytime I need a caterer. He's professional, punctual, and an awesome chef. Thank you Luis.

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.
