I am so thrilled that we found Tasty Creations Catering for my daughter's wedding. This is the most professional Catering Company anyone could ever find. The communication between Chef David and his beautiful wife, are outstanding. I had asked question after question and always received responses back immediately or very soon after. They both made me feel special during this whole ordeal with the wedding planning. They were never too busy to communicate. After searching several Catering Companies, Tasty Creations came through with a superb menu for my daughter's wedding. They worked with us according to our budget and never did they make us feel like we were cheap with the dollar amount we were able to afford. Chef David set up a tasting for us and him and his wife came out to our place to do the tasting of appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and even cake tasting. The remarkable thing about Chef David, is that all his food is prepared right in front of you at the tasting and everything is so fresh and delicious. He even cracks jokes while preparing the foods for tasting. He's from North Carolina, which told me right off the bat, that he was going to be good! Chef David is very unique as he comes out to the site of the event and doesn't bring already prepared food to just set on warming trays. He comes out to the event hours about 4 hours in advance and prepares each food item right there! I find that amazing as not many places offer that type of catering service. He is the best in our book and I would never look any further again. He was prompt and his serving staff was very professional looking and super pleasant. The food was so fresh and absolutely the most delicious food we have ever had. It was an honor to hear our guests keep complimenting the meal. As a side note, I was in a bind for our rehearsal dinner, and I contacted Chef David and explained it was short notice but I wanted to see if he could help us out. I told him we had a very limited dollar amount for the rehearsal dinner and explained briefly what we wanted to have that evening. Chef David got back with me a few hours later with a menu plan that was right in our budget and exactly what we were looking for as far as the dinner we had hoped to have. Chef David and Margarita are willing to work with you no matter what your budget may be and you never have to be embarrassed if you are limited in what you can spend. By the way, Chef David is the absolute best lasagna maker! We have ordered numerous trays from him just to have for ourselves for dinner. We have never found any restaurant that can come close to Chef David's lasagna! Hats off to the best Caterer in the world, Chef David from Tasty Creations Catering! (By the way, Chef David, you finally have a hat to wear)! Lol You can't go wrong with Tasty Creations Catering!

The food arrived on time and was delicious. We ordered the Cuban combination. Our guests were happy. Thank you guys for an excellent job. I will definitely recommend them and will use them again.

I had a great experience with TCG, considering it was a last minute event. I live in TX and was in Miami visiting my family when my brother told me he was getting married and was planning a small wedding ceremony. Mind you, this was about 8 days prior to his ceremony date. I searched for local catering companies and chose TCG. Alan, the manager, reached out to me via phone and e-mail. From the beginning he was very, very helpful and I greatly appreciate his professionalism and patience with the last minute event. He greatly helped me out choosing the right menu and the rental equipment at a low cost, fast, and convenient. I definitely recommend TCG and I'd use them again for future events. =) Thank you Alan!

We used C&F after having a issue with another catering company. C&F saved the day. The professionalism and great tasting food was awesome but the understanding and delivery of everything we asked for was over and beyond and Cynthia made sure that we were comfortable and assured us that her and her staff will handle everything and they did.

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.

Mr. G's catering provided services for a birthday party. Chef John and his team were great. He worked with us to set up the menu, visited the venue beforehand and made recommendations. On the day of the event, he and his team showed up with plenty of time to set up. Everyone raved about the food and the service. Everything was top-notch. I would definitely use their services again and would definitely recommend them to others.

We highly recommend Alicja's catering and will continue to utilize her services for future events. Thanks for everything, Alexandra and Isaac

Chef Levita is a class act! He recently catered a small (16 people) corporate event for us and we were very pleased! He was professional, organized and had a menu prepared for us that was out of this world. His food was fresh and the presentation was awesome. He was extremely nice and my group enjoyed all of the personal touches that he brought to the table for us. I look forward to using his services on a regular basis now. An all around fantastic job was done by Chef Levita and his assistant Chef Jenny!!! Average price for an above average job!! So nice to see someone that takes pride in their work...it truly showed!!!

George did a great job for catering my daughter's university graduation supper. I was not quite sure how to pick a caterer without tasting the food. George was very responsive with the initial contacts and suggestions for the Italian food meal. Everybody enjoyed the food. George was very prompt, courteous. I highly recommend his catering service

ONE WORD FOR DAVIN... AMAZING! His food and customer service was out of this world! He was extremely accommodating to everything we needed (and my ever changing menu needs)! He put a lot of thought and effort into the brunch and if anyone is in the Florida area, you should contact him immediately! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Twisted Pig BBQ catered my wife's birthday party. When I contacted Joe I was impressed that he took notes on what we wanted and came up with a variety of options to fit our budget. Additionally, he followed up prior to the event accommodating some last minute changes. Of course the food was incredible! I am not exaggerating when I say everyone raved on how tasty the BBQ was! Joe even included a couple of extras as a bonus (ask him about the bacon strips and bacon wrapped jalapenos)! When it was time to settle up, ALL was exactly as proposed (no hidden costs). I would (and have) recommended Twisted Pig BBQ! AWESOME!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
