Dan was a chef for a family vacation and also a wedding. everything that he made was spectacular!!! He went above and beyond and gave us great service not to mention he's a beautiful person. His presentation was beautiful. He made a variety of dishes and every last one of them left your mouth watering for more. Every morning breakfast was served hot and ready and dinner the same. I would recommend Dan for any catering occasion.

Thanks to Chef Paul and his team our wedding reception was absolutely perfect! The service was great from beginning to end. Paul came to our house and did a private tasting for my now husband and I. We were blown away. We decided to go with him for our special day. He always got right back to me with my several questions. And he had an answer for everything. He had his rental company match the lowest quote I could find for tables and chairs and totally worked with our budget. He talked about his menu and food items with so much passion. And you could taste that…. The food was great! All the guests were impressed! He was so flexible with my being a very indecisive bride. When we finally did decide on the menu…they delivered. The meats were tender and juicy. The veggies were not mushy and full of flavor. The cornbread was amazing. The macaroni and cheese was as gourmet as it gets and had bacon!! YUM! The comfort food isn't usually on their menu but they did it for me and they nailed it! ….and it was fancy! We had two buffet lines for 120 people with a server at every dish making it efficient and easy for our guests. There wasn't anyone who left hungry. The bartenders and staff were friendly and accommodating. We needed a dance floor very last minute over some cobblestone and they made that happen! They made everything happen even beyond the food! Not only would I highly recommend their catering…. I will most likely use them again! A huge thanks to The Dancing Palate from a very satisfied bride!

I cannot say enough about these guys! David saved our wedding reception ! What was supposed to be a small wedding turned into a financial nightmare when we lost our free reception venue. It was days before the wedding and down to the wire- not only did they make amazing hors d'duervres they even helped decorate our space. We had a very "adult" crowd and the bartender made amazing Mohitos and put up with our shenanigans. Even decorated our food set up. I was beyond pressed for time and didn't have any help with set up and walked in from our beach ceremony to the reception spot and was blown away by how beautiful it was. They went out of their way to make sure that things were simple, easy, and fun! They were such a blast to work with and to talk to during the whole reception-if you need a catering company to make some amazing food look no further!!! They saved my wedding because quite frankly, at that point I was considering calling it off if I could not figure out a catering company for the reception. I cannot thank y'all enough !

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.

I’m super glad I went with Concious Bite Catering! The girls were very professional and on top of things. They gave me a quote fast and we started communication right away to select menu items for a babyshower I was hosting. Hey went above and beyond to guide me through the process and I could’ve been happier with the results. People loved the food. I totally recommend the passion fruit mousse! It was a hit! Thank you ladies! Wishing you lots of success! Raquel—

I was hosting some friends at my house and decided not to cook and order catered food instead. My brother, who does a lot of catering recommended that I check on Tumbtack. I found a company around my area called First Bite lead by chef owner Jose Andrich. After talking for a bit and letting him know how many people and what kind of cuisines did he offer, which is apparently everything from fine dining to casual cooking. Well me being Cuban and from miami, I decided to opt in for the roast pork shoulder, rice and beans, yuca, and mariquitas. (Which I didn’t order he threw them in on the house) Which was great cause everyone enjoyed them. Not only did First Bite meet my expectations, it exceed them by far. Thanks to Chef Jose and crew for making my event a success. Will definitely be ordering again soon.

Hired the guys at Grenhouse for a last minute event that needed catering. They were a pleasure to work with. Communication with them was seamless and they responded promptly to my messages. I especially love that they brought “farm-to-table” in a food truck, which meant we didn’t have to deal with a crazy setup. I didn’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience. They even tried their best to accommodate some of my menu requests at the last minute. Oh, and the food is DELICIOUS. Definitely recommend.

I have worked with Culinary Solutions on a number of events over the years and their service has been quite good but since Shannon has taken over the role of Event Manager, the service has been outstanding. Her attention to detail, willingness to accomodate for her client is amazing. I would strongly urge anyone planning an event to call Shannon at Culinary Solutions either for an event at the Boynton Beach Womens Club or for an off premis party.

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.
