This was a fabulous way to take the stress out of a celebration. Becky and sous chef, Jill, created a great menu with presentation and flavors that were spot on with our expectations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an intimate meal and/or catering. I will utilize her services again in the future. Thank you for everything!

Chef Robert is the bomb! I contacted several Jacksonville caterers through Thumbtack, and his menu was the most interesting. He catered a birthday luncheon for 14 people and was willing to suggest, adjust, add, and subtract to accommodate all my preferences. When he arrived, he was professional and personal. I had asked for buffet service, and his presentation was lovely, including special attention to the birthday guest of honor. Every item on the menu was delicious; I especially recommend his crab cake martinis and jerk chicken fajitas. Yum! He spaced out service so that the meal took a couple of hours, perfect for savoring each course. Unfortunately, I was too busy enjoying the experience to remember to take photos. I live in Indiana, otherwise I'd hire him again next week! Thanks, Chef Robert, for a memorable 50th birthday celebration!

The courses she prepares are always exceptional. She was able to accommodate vegan guests as well as those with other food allergies. You will not regret hiring Chef Arielle as your caterer.

I thoroughly enjoyed every experience at Cafe Coastal. From my time eating off the menu and seeing the time and detail put into their catering menu, there aren't many chefs out there with Floyd's knowledge, ability and personality. I would recommend to friends and I have!

I hired this caterer for a retirement luncheon based on the recommendation of one of her customers. Before the event, we had several conversations and texts, working out the details. Patty was always quick to respond. The menu included beef & chicken fajitas (with all the fixings), white rice and black beans. The food was delivered and set-up timely. She went over each dish with me. Every item was at the correct temperature. There was plenty of food and all of my guests were very complimentary of the taste and quality of the fajita ingredients, especially on the tenderness of the beef. Patty's Mexican Catering delivers a first rate meal.

I used Ali to bartend a party I hosted a few nights ago and was very pleased with the service she provided. She was extremely attentive and professional. I entertain a fair amount and would definitely use her again!

    The Hazel Nut staff is very professional, and promt. The food was absolutely devine. I gave Chef Eric my menu, we hashed out all the detail on when I needed the food ready, where to deliver. The rest was in his hands. The display was colorful, neat, and the food itself was a hit with the guess. Definately will use Hazel Nut Grill again for all of my parties and events. Those mini sandwhiches, and gumbo will be on every last one of my must haves for my menu.

    Greg did a great job of providing exactly what I needed for my wedding! The food was wonderful and was timely! I mentioned during one conversation that my future husband and I loved the Jacksonville Jaguars and he surprised us with adding that element into the food. He was very accommodating and easy to work with!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
