Brian did a great job! He sent me a great list to choose menu items from, arrived on time and prepared, and made my corporate catering event run very smoothly. The food was great and I will definitely use him again when back in Miami! Good luck Brian!

Dan was a chef for a family vacation and also a wedding. everything that he made was spectacular!!! He went above and beyond and gave us great service not to mention he's a beautiful person. His presentation was beautiful. He made a variety of dishes and every last one of them left your mouth watering for more. Every morning breakfast was served hot and ready and dinner the same. I would recommend Dan for any catering occasion.

Outstanding! Jeffery simply delivers a wonderful turnkey catering experience. This talented and engaging Chef made a great impression with our guests. From his seared Tuna Tataki to his asparagus wrapped in filet of beef to 18 hour boneless short ribs over potato pancakes and the Spanakopita with jumbo lump crab and much more the food was superb. All prepared and delivered with the flourish you expect. Invite Jeffery into you home, relax and let him do his thing, you will be pleased with the results! Prompt, detailed, professional, willing to go the extra mile.

From start to finish via customer support, service, options, pricing, flexibility, courteous, delivery, set-up, pickup, food presentation, excellent tasting food. This caterer/catering service is without question, without doubt, unequivocally the best! Thank you for Exquisite for being everything you advertise, and even more. The milestone event was a big success largely due to your service. At least several guest preserved the napkins with your contact info, and 1 guest will be contacting you service shortly for their own upcoming event. The food was awesome not only in presentation, but in taste as well! Thank you again!

We LOVED working with the Catering Group and Alan. We hired them for a total of 12 meals (for 35 people each meal) throughout the month of April. The meals were absolutely delicious! They were great to work with and met all our specific nutritional needs. We have already hired them throughout the summer for other events. Highly recommend them and can't thank them enough for the service they've provided so far!

We just loved Laura and her employee. My son and his wife were having their wedding reception and did not want any alcoholic beverages to be served. They decided they wanted a smoothie bar. I am so happy I found Laura (LA Catering). First of all it was last minute and when I talked to Laura she assured me it would not be a problem. She arrived when promised and to my delight all the guests were raving about the smoothies. They were professional yet very cordial. I would recommend LA Catering for your next event. I can't wait to use them again in the future for other events.

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.

    I have worked with Culinary Solutions on a number of events over the years and their service has been quite good but since Shannon has taken over the role of Event Manager, the service has been outstanding. Her attention to detail, willingness to accomodate for her client is amazing. I would strongly urge anyone planning an event to call Shannon at Culinary Solutions either for an event at the Boynton Beach Womens Club or for an off premis party.

    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.
