My experience with Gotta Have It was exceptional from beginning to end. Chef Marra gave me exactly what I asked for, which was Panamanian cuisine. The food was great and my guests were impressed. The staff provided for service were professional and on point. Chef Marra worked with me on every level during this process. I would definitely work with this catering company again and I also recommend them to anyone.

Nikki provided full service catering for our small birthday party (~12 adults). The food was very good, she covered all the bases, and is very personable. Several of our guests asked for her business cards, and we were thoroughly impressed with her professional and personal contributions to the evening. (She even went above and beyond to find the honoree's favorite birthday cake -- not on her menu!)

Sabrina was the "Ultimate Professional" in all aspects! The omelet station and customized options she created for our guests truly elevated our event to the next level. Not only was the food DELICIOUS but her winning personality made it a complete joy to work with her. I appreciate Sabrina's promptness, attention to detail, creativity, pre-event visit and suggestions, efficiency, and her positive interaction with all our guests! I have no doubt that we will leverage her services again when we have an event and I would wholeheartedly recommend the Good Fork Catering Company to anyone looking to make their event extra special!

We recently hired, Chef Kelsey to take on a job for 9 people serving an on-going meal delivery during SXSW. She explained everything in detail and communicated very well with myself as well as our clients/guests to our short term rental home. We could not have asked for better preparation and quality of service. She was punctual and very kind. Our clients LOVED their meals and wiped the dishes, clean! Thanks Chef. We'll be hiring you again soon.

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.

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!!

I found Daddy's Girl BBQ just searching for holiday catering companies on Google. I had an awesome experience ordering for our catered Thanksgiving Day Meal. Mrs. Darling was very personable, professional and the food was delicious! She was even able to assist me in providing last minute food items for a separate event-which was greatly appreciated and super accommodating of her amidst a busy holiday catering season. I will definitely be using her services going forward and would gladly recommend her to cater any events.

I hired Dillon's Catering for a large charity event. From the beginning they were very professional and easy to deal with. I was impressed with the service, communication, on time delivery and professional dress. At the time of delivery they showed up wearing professional shirts that said Dillon's and were very appreciative for my business. I would love to try more of Chef Aaron's food! I would definitely hire them again!

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.

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.

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 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.
