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.

Nikki is an excellent chef - food was delicious. She was on time and was very personable! The young men she brought with her were so nice! I had asked for her to prepare extra homemade croutons for me to have the next day and though she said of course I suspect in the haste to leave she forgot them. ( By the way they were great!) The only comment I would make in using a chef versus my regular caterers is that Nikki and her team planned to leave while we were eating dessert. In doing so I would have been left to clean all those dishes ( 10 seated guests) and wine glasses myself. She said that was the way she always did things. None of my caterers have ever done that -- that is part of what you are paying for ($700+) to enjoy your evening and have no work to do ! Just being hostess is enough getting the house and flowers and table set! Nikki knew we had 50 people arriving post dinner for an after party and needed the dinner dishes all pulled and cleaned - was very disappointed that we had to discuss that at the last minute! I had hired a separate bartender for the glasses to be taken care at the post party. I expected her to not do any of those dishes. I did ask her to place trays of desserts I had prepared on the "cleaned off" dining table when they finished. ( I paid them a handsome tip for doing this) Also - I have never had a caterer use the dishwasher for my dishes - I have always found them hand washed and stacked in kitchen. Nikki's team loaded my dishwashers (2) with the hand painted china and sterling flatware. I should have explained that is not done - my mistake, I just haven't had to before. She is an EXCELLENT CHEF! Services are not as "easy" on the host and her familiarity with things like the china and silver should be discussed before hand. Be very specific about every detail on how you see the evening going - write it up so you both know. We had Sea Bass and It Was Amazing!

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 would like to give a thumbs up to Pas De Deux Catering, I used this catering service for my wedding reception, and was very impressed. The food and the services were great and very reasonable. Marcus, was able to help me at the last minute seeing that I wasn't pleased with my last caterer. I would definitely use his services again and would highly recommend him, trust me you will not be disappointed.

Stephanie and the Cabaki team did a phenomenal job on our graduation party. I can't tell you the number of guests that pulled me aside to rave about the food and ask for Stephanie's information for future events. Stephanie also knows her audience... her suggestion for Chicken Parmesan + pasta for this crowd of recent high school and college grads plus their parents was SPOT ON! We wanted to venture away from the standard barbeque or mexican dish options served at most grad parties, so we definitely stood out among those this grad season. Cabaki takes care of EVERY detail... just give them space to stage and display, and they do all the rest. Overall, Cabaki's service, value and professionalism were simply outstanding. I would hire them again and refer to all my friends.

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!!

The food was excellent and delivered on time. Purple Plate Catering did an outstanding job for my event. They were able to adjust the food required as my RSVP numbers increased. About 20 people asked who the caterer was because they thought the food was excellent. Joshua Swinney was accessible and responded to email and text request in a timely manner. He was very professional and personable. One improvement would be to have a credit/debit card based system for payments as I had difficulty with the Cash App system used by Purple Plate Catering. Overall, I would highly recommend their services.

I have worked with Atlanta Food Connect while working with my last two employers. The best thing about working with Shayna at Atlanta Food Connect is that it is so easy and I still look like a total rock star. If I have lunch meetings all week, it only takes one phone call to make all of them happen! When I have special events, Shayna works with me to create the right menu for the right audience with the right caterer. I won't work with anyone else

From beginning to end, partnering with Dargin’s Creole Kitchen was one of the best decisions I could have made. Trina and Chris, along with their catering staff, are outstanding! Starting with the consultation, they put my mind at ease. The menu planning was a joy (they gave great suggestions – most were better than any idea that I could have come up with on my own). But let me tell you about the tasting! Oh my God! It surpassed any and all expectations I could have possibly dreamed of. It was like sitting down at the most upper echelon restaurant – every course was served with a detailed explanation of the dish, the presentation was AHHHH-Mazing! And, the taste…just wow! I’d gladly have them cater for me every day, if I could. The proof is in the pudding, though. And, when it came time for them to show up and show out at the engagement party – that is exactly what they did. There was no bait and switch; the food was served on a grand scale and – I don’t know how it is possible – it tasted even better at the engagement party. All our guests were so pleased…and so full! Dargin’s Creole Kitchen was an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend them and would gladly work with them again. As a matter of fact, multiple people asked about them during and after the party.

I was somewhat disappointed in the presentation and quality of the food. The taste of the food was not what I thought would be from a professional caterer.

    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.
