They catered my reception for 80 people. Vincent was one of the two caterers whose first reply responded to my request for a vegan menu with creative suggestions and ample selections. He was promptly responsive at all times during the planning stage. They were better than on time, they arrived a bit early. Travis set everything up, served, and interacted well with the guests. The food was attractively presented, had great visual appeal and best of all tasted great. His cleanup afterward was impeccable. I highly recommend GHI.

GREAT TASTING!!! This is all that needs to be stated about the quality of food, the great customer service and presentation of the food. She far exceeded my expectations for our family dinner and our toddlers enjoyed all of the food that she cooked, which was truly a delight. For our next family outing, I will definitely be calling on her services again.

The Bountiful Basket was our caterer for our wedding on July 10. There is not enough that could be said about what Mike and his team did for us. They were way more than caterers. Mike handled everything: tables, tents, chairs, dinnerware, glassware for both our wedding and our rehearsal dinner. His staff was so very professional and on the ball. And the food....WOW. It was incredible evidenced by the fact that there was very little left. His mac and cheese is unique and fantastic. The shrimp and grits were fabulous and he makes fried chicken just like your grandmother. Please seriously consider The Bountiful Basket for any catering event. You will not be sorry. Thanks Mike and crew you made our day perfect.

I hadAllison and her team do full service catering for our Oktoberfest party this past Saturday for 60 people including kids! Everything was absolutely outstanding from the presentation to the food. She even made a special treat for the kids! People could not stop talking about how great the food was. Allison is very organized and so professional she came over to the house twice met with me made sure she knew where everything was so when party day came she didn't have to ask me anything. I will definitely be using her again for any future catering parties that we have.

I and my party were very impressed with Josue's work. He was on time; the food was presented beautifully and it tasted great. The occasion was my wife's 65th birthday party at our house. I had asked Josue to prepare a wide variety of hors D'oeuvres to present to a diverse group of 23 adults and 4 children. I wanted a coctail party atmosphere and I wanted the food to be freshly prepared as it was consumed. The party lasted about 4 hours. I am sure several of the people in my party will be calling Josue to cater their events. He gets an A+ from me.

Fantastic job by Cupid's Pantry from beginning to end! The Thumbtack website is user friendly and Chef Chenoa responded right away to a short notice proposal for my wife's 50th Birthday Party (I'm a terrible procrastinator). She was very enjoyable to work with ironing out the details leading up to the party and the party itself was a smash hit with 20 of our friends and family. Chef Samantha nailed our Buckhead Beef tenderloin and other food highlights were the crawfish etouffee and the two tier chocolate and coconut individual birthday cakes - several people said it was the best they've ever had. Chenoa had great ideas, one of them being flower arrangements for each table and on her own came up with 50 roses for the arrangements- what a nice touch. When it came time for post dinner and clean up by Cupid's Pantry, I swear they did it in the blink of an eye. One minute there were a lot of dishes, glasses, etc. and I was visiting with my guests - the next minute, poof! all cleaned up! I cannot recommend Chenoa and Cupid's Pantry highly enough. Thanks for making my wife's 50th a truly special night!!!

I used Rich to cater a high school sports banquet. In my initial search for a caterer, Rich was quick to respond to my inquiry and offered suggestions and gave me prices for a menu. I had to work with the booster club board and coaches to nail down a date and Rich was accommodating in holding my tentative dates and working with me via email. Two days before the scheduled banquet, we discovered we would not be able to have the banquet on the date planned. Again, Rich worked with me, gave me options and waited patiently for the new date to be set. The banquet turned out great! The food was delicious and Rich and his team were very professional in setting up and taking down (I never knew they left the building - they were so quiet!) I would definitely use Rich again and I know that many of the attendees enjoyed the meal and asked me for his business information.

My event: dinner with 12 guests Food prepared: grilled salmon with buerre blanc sauce, grilled asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes. Perfeclty seasoned with a medley of flavors that were balanced, salmon was moist with and witthout sauce, aspargus were crisp with light grill taste and mashed potatoes were delish. The garlic did not overpower the flavor of the potatoes. Trey was professional and assured guests were satisfied with their food. He offered suggestions for the use of the buerre blanc on all the dishes. Food was fresh, presentation was eye catching and most importantly flavorful.

Man thos dudes pallet is outstanding! He did the catering for an event i had. He was on time with everything. The food tasted great. His concept on food was what my event needed. Thanks to him I've been able to keep my current clients as well as gain a few more. He has also done a few small meals for me when I had a date. I'll be using him for all of my events both big and small. I don't think that there is an event he can't pull off. Very professional and kind. Thanks Chef Kerby Morgan see you at the next event!

Toni created the most delicious food for my catered party. Toni not only brings her expertise, passion as well as her outgoing personality. My guests didn’t want to leave the kitchen. For me, Toni is the whole package.

I ordered a week of meals and she delivered them straight to my work! There were so much variety including tacos with homemade tortillas, baked chicken, vegetable lasagna and tons of sides. All of the food was amazing and delicious. The potato salad is hands down the best I’ve ever had! The collard greens and macaroni and cheese were so delicious. You can tell everything was made from scratch with love. I also ordered some desserts (red velvet cake and sweet potato pie) which were to die for!

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.
