Chef Tamara was so easy to work with and her staff was so helpful and cheerful. Plus, the food was a big hit!! I was asked by several people who provided the food. Really, people raved and she even made both vegetarian and vegan options for my few friends in the group so they didn't feel left out. The desserts were put of this world and the fruit was all the best of the best and perfectly ripe! (Which is rare) Will definitely use again!

We hired Vivian for our 50th anniversary party at the beach. The event lasted from Thursday night until Monday morning and involved 11 children and 16 adults. Vivian cooked three meals every day for us. Each night was a special treat from Spanish night, fish dinner night, and for the anniversary celebration, she fixed filet mignon and salmon. Everything was delicious! She was very thoughtful in catering to special needs, likes and dislikes of the guests and was well liked by the group. Because we were not at a home, she brought all the dishes, tablecloths, glasses and silverware. I would highly recommend Vivian. she is a true Personal Chef and not just a caterer.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect, due in LARGE part to Once Upon an Event catering. From initial contact to our wedding day - my experience with Sandy and her staff was absolutely WONDERFUL! The food was delicious - our guests are STILL talking about it! I loved that Sandy understood our needs and allowed us to customize our entire menu. which included appetizers, dinner buffet and cake. Another amazing part was the fact that she DID NOT nickel and dime us for every little thing, and was more concerned about how she could make our day perfect. Her staff on the wedding day was extremely professional, friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and so helpful. My mil had made our "display" cake - and there was a problem with the transport of the cake (the top layer slid off!).....one of Sandy's employees saved the day and fixed the cake! They left the kitchen at the venue ABSOLUTELY SPOTLESS, and were thoughtful to take the time to serve 3 of our vegan guests so that they would not have to be in contact with any animal products (we had not even mentioned the fact that we would have 3 vegan guests in our initial meetings). Another plus is Once Upon an Event is a one stop shop. Sandy is available to provide anything you need to ensure your wedding day is the best it can possibly be. I had piece of mind knowing that I could rely on her to find a last minute dj, florist, etc. We truly enjoyed our wedding and had nothing to worry about. I would definitely hire them again!

First Class Catering! As an Event Planner I regularly use Caterers and after using Linda I can say we found a winner! Linda was patient with our initial requests and ensured us of the quality of her food and she definitely delivered! the food was fresh and the presentation was impeccable. Linda followed up the day prior to our event to confirm she was coming early to assist with the set up. If we could give 10 stars we would. Thanks again Linda, and we will be calling you for our next local event for sure! Patrick

Really loved Kim and Cam! They were personable and sweet for our bachelorette party's casual setting. We asked questions about how they cooked, so it was a mini-lesson for us! I really appreciate Kim's responsiveness and professionalism as well. She tended to my vegetarian needs which was great. We got a Thai menu and our faves were the coconut soup, egg rolls, and cake for dessert.

    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.
