Maurice was absolutely outstanding in every aspect. Not only did he accommodate a fairly large party on a very short notice, he blew us all away with the quality and flavors of his food! We had children, parents, and grandparents going up for seconds and thirds and to say we were all very happy with our food and the service provided by Maurice is an understatement. I will absolutely be using Maurice and his catering services again!

All around fantastic job by Junior and his team. So many people at the party were impressed with the catering and bartending enough that I had 6 people tell me they were going to hire Kitchen's Portal for their next event. All of the food was amazing, the signature cocktail was fantastic, the presentation of the whole thing tied together was just fantastic. Not only was the whole team extremely polite and professional, they were all good people. We enjoyed hanging out with the Portal crew as much as anyone else at the party. I would highly recommend hiring Junior if you need a bartender, a caterer, or both. These guys saved me so much time from having to rent the actual bar, the tub, the coolers, etc which not only saved money, but more importantly saved time. When you're trying to get stuff done for a 40 person party the day ofm, it's nice to have someone else deal with a smuch as possible. I will definitely try to get these guys back for the next event we have

We hired Corwin and his team to handle our catering services as well as linens and altar decor for our wedding with 240 guests. The food was great, and his team was professional and the linens and decor was beautiful. I was glad to have Corwin and his crew helping me as we planned for and carried the event through. He was easy to communicate with, very responsive, met with us as many times as I needed prior to the event, and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with his service from beginning to the end. Thank you Corwin for your great service!

Tricia and her staff were just wonderful. When she and her staff arrived at our home, Tricia stated she was there to make our day fantastic. I literally turned the remainder of the event over to her so I could welcome and enjoy my guests and get married in peace - those helpful friends and family that won't stop offering to help, I turned them over to Tricia too. We had about 80 guests from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Her Services set up the buffet line: sliced Beef Tenderloin (they sliced), Ham & Turkey, sausages, vegetables, salad fixings. They set up the chaffing dishes with the catered food, ran a full service bar, desert & coffee table, appetizers table and a champagne table. We used glass place settings and flatware (pre-set) at 8 tables inside our home. The staff made sure everyone saw all the assortment and locations of foods and drinks, helped serve and locate people at tables, spoke with our guests on a friendly level (helped entertain), and cleared dishes, glasses and flatware away after use, stacking them in the kitchens. My champagne glass was never empty, and from all reports, all our guests thought the girls were wonderful! My husband was thrilled and complemented me on my selection and planning. They truly made the day classy and enjoyable for all. The next event we have we will definitely be requesting Her Services to help entertain our guests. Just a fabulous carefree day after they arrived!

I was throwing a Bowties & Cardigans 30th Birthday party for my husband and Bless My Soul Food Catering & More truly made the experience a night to remember. It was a grown folk house party with music/games/etc. so we didn't want anything too formal like a sit down dinner party. I told Chef Nae some of my husbands favorites & the theme and she blew our minds. He loves lasagna but that's not a dish for this type of party. She made a Lasagna Bake with bowtie noodles and several other elegant appetizer-style foods. She also made his favorite, her famous, Red Velvet Cheesecake. The layout was elegant with the 2-tier Red Velvet Cheesecake in the middle. I highly recommend Bless My Soul Food Catering & More for ALL of your dining and catering needs. I also use her personal chef services as I'm a super busy entrpreneur, wife, mom, etc. My family loves EVERY meal. YOU SHOULD BOOK BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE TODAY!

Melissa was excellent and a perfect fit for our party. She interacted well with our guests and there wasn't an empty cup to be found. she arrived on time, was very professional, handled our sometimes rowdy crowd at the bar like a champ and cleaned up when she was done. Would highly recommend.

The food was outstanding! All of the guests at our wedding were very pleased and we heard no complaints. The staff was very professional. We were a little disappointed at how quickly they packed up and left. We were also a little disappointed that they didn't leave any food for us to have a plate after everyone was gone as we, the bride and groom, were to busy with our guests to really get a chance to eat. I would definitely recommend Char-Don Catering to anyone and would definitely use them again for any other event!!!

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.
