Chef Tamara and her staff are AMAZING! I am a wedding planner with B. Remembered Events and I worked with Tamara and her staff this past weekend. I was truly impressed (which is a lot coming from a planner who works with a number of companies!). The food was outstanding (and custom to the client's taste). The service was excellent and the presentation was one to write home about. If you are debating who to choose when hiring a catering company. Your debate is over. Hire her today!

We hired Vivian for our NYE wedding. She cooked for 100 people. The food was AMAZING. Our guests are still raving about the dishes she prepared. Vivian was a pleasure to work with leading up to the day of the event and she and her staff were a pleasure the evening of as well. She will be the first person we call for all future events!

This is a wonderful catering company! No food is delicious. Not your typical catering food. Sandy and the chef work with you to develop the best menu for your event. They took care of everything during our wedding. I recommend them without any hesitation.

Chef Kim and Good Enuf 2 Eat Catering prepared a fantastic surprise 50th birthday dinner for 2 for one of my closest friends. The 4 course Thai meal was absolutely wonderful far exceeding my expectations. She arrived at the agreed upon time and dinner was actually served early. Each course was incredibly well presented and Chef Kim explained the fresh ingredients of each. Everything was so aromatic and the flavors from each course happily danced on our tongues. The kitchen was thoroughly cleaned when finished and she departed with a hug leaving us to enjoy the wonderful Petit Fois. I highly recommend Chef Kim and Good Enuf 2 Eat Catering for any catering event. I look forward to her catering my next event. Thank you Chef Kim for a fantastic experience!

      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.
