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

Hiring spice house catering was the best thing I could've done when celebrating my mothers 49th birthday. Chef Dameon was very timely with initial responses seeing that my event only gave him 48hr advance notice. He was extremely professional and punctual. His overall delivery was amazing from the presentation to the taste of the food, left nothing else to desire. My entire family was very impressed and we are very big on food. Coming from ny we wish we could fly Chef Dameon out to cater all of our events at home. That's how delicious the food was. We thank you and appreciate your help in making our event a success. I would definitely recommend The spice house catering for any event.

I was requesting quotes for my sons 5th grade banquet IN VERY SHORT NOTICE. Out of 50, I CHOSE BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE!!!!! I needed to cater to 250+ guests. The vendors I had lined up for this event would not have been able to beat the cost, the timing, accommodating such a crowd on such short notice...NOR do it effortlessly with quality, FLAVOR and efficiency the ways I was catered to by THIS company. Immediately they were on my phone offering suggestions, and arranging to meet to HELP plan the menu as well offer any additional hand in any and every way for this event. Their time was very precious and they offered so much they didn't have to (that was so personal and comforting). On the day of the banquet, they were very much prepared, on time, organized, well dressed, extremely professional and SKILLED to the MAX! The dishes were AMAZING! Hot, fresh, flavorful, well made and well presented!!! Everything was cooked to perfection and so much more than I ever expected!! QUALITY! QUALITY! QUALITY! And can I say QUALITY!

THEY ARE AWESOME AND ACCOMMODATE ANY AND EVERY EVENT TYPE AND VENUE!!! I've been in the event world in Orlando for 15 years and my Father for 40! WE WERE BOTH VERY IMPRESSED AND BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND THEM!!! By far THE MOST efficient, personal, accommodating, cost effective, punctual, reasonable and DELICIOUS ((SOOOO DELICIOUS)) I enjoyed the company of these fine ladies and appreciated the extra hand. The LOVE for what this company does is defined in their great service, THE FLAVOR, THE QUALITY, the presentation and above all BEING ONE OF A KIND!!! NOT MANY CATERING COMPANIES CAN SAY THAT -- BUT THIS ONE CAN AND OWNS IT!!!! Any type of food dishes, ANY TYPE OF GATHERING.... ANY NUMBER OF GUESTS, from a small crowd (even a dinner for 2) to 300 people/PLUS...THIS COMPANY DEFIES ALL I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!! I AM SO GRATEFUL AND HONORED TO HAVE THEM AS A PERMANENT "GO-TO" VENDOR!!!! I RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY AND ALL OCCASIONS!!! WHEN I SAY THEY COOK IT ALL--THEY DO IT ALL---THEY MAKE IT ALL SO PERSONAL--- THE FOOD IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! 100% X 100% SATISFIED!!!! I WILL BE PROMOTING THEM TO EVERYONE I KNOW AND EVERYONE I DON'T KNOW! WATCH OUT CATERING WORLD, THIS COMPANY IS THE REAL DEAL AND TOP NOTCH!!!!! THEIR PRICES ARE OUTSTANDING AND UNBEATABLE!

Al's cooking is great. He is very hospital and the food is always hot and good. It amazes me how this guy can make so much food and manage to keep it hot and ready. I have been to a few functions catered by Abundance Catering and was never disappointed. His pulled pork is the absolute best. Every year he has a Early Thanksgiving Feast and this year the food was wonderful. Even though it was a Thanksgiving Feast in addition to four turkeys Al also had some of his famous pulled pork. I would highly recommend Al and Abundance Custom Catering for any event you have planned. You rock Al.......

Our guests raved about how amazing everything was. The Chef personally walked around to each table to make sure the food was great for our guests. Savyor Events are the most professional caterers. On time, helpful with creating a menu in our budget, and then delivering food that is fresh, hot, and delicious. For appetizers, I would highly recommend the bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp and the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. Main course: My choice = sautéed mushrooms/steak and chicken/pineapple shish-ka-bobs was my favorite. The mushrooms were exquisite! Savyor's serving staff was a pleasure to work with; friendly, prompt, clean, and courteous. Definitely using Savyor Events for the holiday 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
