My family and I travelled to Orlando for a Christmas vacation. Chef Maurice came each day for a week and catered to a family of 13 which included 7 adults and 6 children, age 3 to 14. He was able to prepare meals to accommodate finicky children to hungry adults. He was able to meet the demands of our daily changing schedule. Not only was he flexible, he easily meshed with the personalities of our family. This could not have been easy since we were in and out of the kitchen. The food was terrific. Breakfast was made to order as everyone tumbled out of bed to the smell of coffee and the menu of the day. Although I was offered to create a menu with the chef, I chose to tell him our likes and dislikes. Everyday was a wonderful surprise. Everything from steak dinners, grilled meats to wraps. I personally loved the meatballs. Chef Maurice created desserts, including a special birthday cake for us. The spread of appetizers for New Years Eve was spectacular! This was my 1st experience having a personal chef. His expertise, professionalism and service were outstanding. Without a doubt, he enhanced our vacation with his gourmet food. I would highly recommend his company.

I am very happy with Chef Tony and the meals that he has made for us so far! I am on the SCD diet (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) and he went out of his way to research the types of foods that I can and cannot have. He made a delicious Honey Jalapeño BBQ chicken with asparagus. The asparagus was topped with a white wine and garlic sauce. It definitely helps to have him make a few dinners for us during the work week to save time. He first met with us at our home and then collected the information that he needed about the type of meals that we wanted. Then we set up a date to have the dinner delivered to our house. We will be using Tony again as a personal Chef for sure!

Debbie was terrific. My husband has celiacs and it was his birthday Pig roast, so we wanted to be sure he could enjoy it. There was great communication before the event about ingredients and he could eat most of the food (I couldn't resist the Mac and Cheese so he was out of luck there). Everything tasted fantastic. The potato salad is as great as everyone says and people were requesting Debbie's contact info. She was timely, professional, and the food was fantastic. Thanks again, Debbie!

From the very beginning of our planning, we decided that we wanted a morning wedding and a brunch reception. I love breakfast and definitely wanted my wedding to showcase my favorite foods. We looked at several caterers but never found anyone that really offered everything we were looking for until we discovered Sean and Party Elegance. I utilized the website Thumbtack to locate Sean and he was very responsive and helpful right off the bat. We looked over his website and liked the pictures and menu options. We contacted Sean by email and he was so friendly and professional. We setup an in-person meeting and considering the major significance of choosing a caterer for our wedding, Sean was knowledgeable and really put us at ease immediately. He put together a sample menu for us and everything sounded so amazing. Sean was also extremely flexible and willing to work with us on any changes we wanted. We had a tasting at Sean’s kitchen and it was delicious and so much food. Sean made enough food to feed a family and we even had some to take home. For the wedding, we asked for a beer and wine reception (with mimosas), and we specifically wanted to feature beer from our favorite local brewery Funky Buddha, which Sean was more than willing to provide. For our cocktail hour, Sean provided a meat and cheese platter, fruit, and passed hors d'oeuvres, including roasted mushroom flatbread and crazy amazing mini bacon donuts, which were a crowd favorite. For the reception, we had a really great watermelon and tomato salad, assorted baked goods and smoked salmon, potatoes, bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs. We also had the best baked banana French toast as well as waffle and omelet stations. Sean is the best, and all of his staff were friendly and exceedingly helpful on the day. Overall, the party was a huge success and we would definitely recommend Sean and Party Elegance as a premier catering company.

On short notice, Gatherings was able to prepare a luncheon experience for almost 100 Mexican students and teachers who visited the American Space Museum for a day of touring and activities. The tour group had a budget of $12 per student for food and Janey Hicks of Gatherings worked with us and the tour leader to come up with a delicious "all-American" menu for the event! While other caterers we contacted offered sandwiches and potato chips, Gatherings arrived with herb-roasted chicken, homemade macaroni & cheese, a beautiful tossed salad with three different homemade dressings, dinner rolls and a homemade cookie or brownie for dessert. The kids and adults alike loved it and snuck back for seconds. We loved it because Janey and her staff were on-time, set everything up, delivered delicious hot food, tore down afterwards and left that part of the museum exactly as they found it. They interacted well with the students (despite a language barrier!) and grown-ups, as well as with the museum staff. We will be using them again for many if not ALL of our catering needs!

Made with love catered my daughters wedding. Julie did a wonderful job and was within my budget. Working with her was very easy since I don't live in Orlando. She also went out of her way to accommodate my new son in law with his peanut and shellfish allergies. Every one loved the appetizer's. Stuffed peppers, bruschetta and fruit & cheese skewers. Dinner consisted of chicken piccata, roasted cauliflower, orzo, salad and rolls. Great service and reliable team. Josie C. Feb.28,2016

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.
