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!

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.

Laura's catering services exceeded my expectations! She is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. From the first contact she was attentive and responsive. She came to the house to meet with me and to see the venue for our event. Her presentation of the brunch was amazing and the food absolutely delicious. All this coupled with her warm and engaging personality--made our son's First Communion Brunch so very special! I highly recommend LA Catering & Events LLC. Marti O'Hare

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.

Mr. G's catering provided services for a birthday party. Chef John and his team were great. He worked with us to set up the menu, visited the venue beforehand and made recommendations. On the day of the event, he and his team showed up with plenty of time to set up. Everyone raved about the food and the service. Everything was top-notch. I would definitely use their services again and would definitely recommend them to others.

Chef Deb prepared a wonderful holiday dinner for my family gathering of 8. She helped me plan my menu, shopped and came and cooked all the food in my home. She was professional, left my kitchen clean, left clear instructions and best of all, my home was filled with the wonderful smells of home cooked food! Everything was delicious. I highly recommend hiring her and can't wait for the opportunity to have her cook for me again!

Wonderful menus and excellent food! I especially like the fresh herbs and cooking wines/liquors with which Chef Alain cooks. It's true European cooking with pure, whole foods from an authentic French Chef! We like using Chef Alain for dinner parties with friends as well as quite dinners at home.

Chef Amanda has prepared meals for me a few times. After the first time, I knew I would be using her again. Whether or not you are hungry, you will become hungry once you see the presentation of her meals! She proves that "you eat with your eyes". Her dishes have such love and quality put into them. Chef Amanda will alter any recipe to go along with a specialized diet or allergies. As if her delicious food was not enough, she is professional yet presents herself in such a way that I feel like I have known her for years! I highly recommend Chef Amanda for any of your cooking needs, whether personal or for a party!

Sharnet was very professional especially since I had to hire her for a last minute event that our previous catering company had over booked. She was very helpful and even did our regular menu and that a A plus in my book. I will definitely use her service again.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
