Mike was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was very helpful and extremely responsive during the planning stage and communicated freely through the thumbtack app, text, phone and email. His input in the menu selection was valuable and he was accommodating with the preferences of our particular group. On the day of the event he showed up on time, was very professional, and the presentation, packaging and quality of the food was impeccable and well complimented by all the party guests. I would be delighted to recommend Mike and Bountiful Basket catering and will continue to use them for future events.

At short notice, Mrs Kendra provided an excellent catering service for our wedding. She made more than enough food for our guests (despite more than anticipated guests). Everyone raved over the food and her courteous staff. Thanks for everything Mrs Kendra

Charles and Tonya did a great job catering my company party. Their positive and upbeat attitude made them a breeze to work with. The food was all freshly homemade and high quality. All of our guests were very pleased. I would recommend C-Bo's BBQ to anyone looking for a great and easy food truck option.

Pas De Deux catering has catered both to my daily home food consumption and to my private parties for the last three years. Marcus is always great at communicating during the planning process, delivers what he promises, and most importantly, brings food that is fresh and absolutely delicious. His soups and his BBQ are amazing.

Stephanie and the team at Cabaki's did an amazing job for not only my wedding but also my wedding rehearsal dinner! The variety on her menu and the versatility she offers with her team is extraordinary. As somewhat of a foodie myself, I will say I was very nervous for any caterer to handle the food for one of the most important days of my life. However, Stephanie took away all of my concerns and provided above and beyond service with excellent communication and a quick response with any questions or concerns I may have had. Not only did my friends and family enjoy the amazing spread, they also raved about the unique dessert that we requested from Stephanie. Not everyone can make a croquembouche! Not only did she and her team create a beautiful croquembouche they also provided a tasty and delicious dessert that all of my guests talked about. I cannot thank Stephanie and her team enough for putting all of my concerns to rest and providing detail and quality that surpassed my highest expectations. If there is any event in the future that requires catering, I will be calling on Stephanie and her team at Cabaki's catering!

Very Professional, Knowledgeable, On Time, Great layout of the food and I could go on and on! Daphne and her staff were on point! I wish there were more stars to give. Our event involved about 75-80 people. The price was very reasonable and her/staff was AMAZING! Going forward we are going to use her company for all of our catering events. Our company has a staff of 90 plus people. She even remember things that I forgot about. She made everything so easy. They were on time, they set everything up, came back and broke everything down. Would our company use her company again ABSOULTELY!!! In a word PERFECT!! On behalf of Butler Lexus we want to say THANK YOU!!

Cupid's Pantry provided catering services for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. They were honestly more than just a catering company. Chenoa and her staff were amazingly professional and provided an overall experience for the event. The food was incredible! Chenoa used very fresh tasting ingredients with the perfect level of seasoning. They were even able to work with discriminate eaters such as pescatarians/vegetarians on the spot. Chenoa provided excellent insight on last minute decor details. The entire team made myself(the host) and all of my guests feel special and cared for. I definitely recommend Cupid's Pantry catering for any of your catering events!

Where do I start!? First and foremost, from the very first consultation to the post-wedding; In-Joy Catering's staff was phenomenal! My now husband and I wanted the best catering around but of course budget friendly. Ms. Dena took her time to completely personalize every little detail for the two of us. There were even things that we never discussed that she went above and beyond and snuck in at our reception! From the time we stepped foot into our reception venue the table settings and the staff stood out. The servers were in Black Tie apparel and very respectful and well spoken. My guest raved on the service as if they were actually at a restaurant. I can go on and on of my experience with Dena and her team but I will leave it up to you to complete the review of such a great service! I would refer her to anyone looking for a cater ! Thanks Dena for helping make our special day even better and stress free!

I decided to skip the restaurants with my family and try a personal Chef. Probably one of the best decisions I ever have done. He fits my budget. The food was so scrumptious, and mouth watering. Indulged and couldn't have enough. His fresh ingredients stand out the most, with the medley of flavors. My taste buds were dancing. Makes me relieved I'm giving my family the best choices in dining. And this dish was truly amazing. I can say Better than granny.

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.
