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!

Jenielle went way above and beyond to create a paleo wedding cake for my husband and me. She had never baked paleo prior to my request, but, unlike other bakers, was willing to try...and our cake turned out fantastic!! Highly recommend!!! Fantastic experience!!!

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!

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 had the privilege of having my wedding cake made by Verousce in January 2014. I wasn't 100 percent sure what I wanted and she gave me advice on ideas for design, flavours etc. Not only was my cake one of a kind but it was elegant and was definitely the focal point of our special day. The cake was delivered and set up on the day and we only had wonderful and reliable service from Verousce. Thank you for making us a cake we will never forget!

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.
