I have hired GHI catering for a wedding that will be in May of 2016. Vince and Travis have been wonderful in preparing a complete catering package for us that is wonderful and affordable. They have prepared a tasting from their food truck that was delicious and even done a venue consultation. We are so excited to be working with them and can't wait for the event.

Mike was absolutely amazing. My husband and I had a caterer previously and found out 2 weeks before our reception that they could no longer do it. I was in a panic! I searched for a few days and came across Thumbtack. After putting my information and the things that I needed from a catering in the system and submitting it, Mike was the first person I heard from. Though there were many other options, Mike was the best choice. He was kind, professional, and made every effort to go over and beyond to give me anything and everything I asked for to make my day special. Also, he really worked with us on a payment plan and was flexible about delivery. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that no other caterer was willing to do a tasting with it being such short notice. Mike was willing and made it seem like a pleasure to do it for us, despite the amount of time we had left. Everything was absolutely delicious and we haven't stopped hearing our guests rave about the wonderful food and service we received. I would recommend him many times over for any and every event someone might have and I'm appreciative of everything he did for my husband and I that day. Thanks Mike!

I truly LOVED working with Cooking with a star Catering. A buffet style wasn't what I had originally wanted, but what I had to do for our budget. They have changed my opinion about buffet weddings forever! The food was what sold us right away at our tasting. We couldn't wait the 9 months to have the roast again it was that yummy! I have several compliments from our guests on how great the food was and was presented, and let's be honest wedding food isn't always the best. Once you go to a tasting you will understand, the food and service are way above the price you pay for. Using them felt like a steal! Kendra was so easy to work with and the communication was great. GeGee on the day of was such an angel. She was extremely attentive to myself and the groom, always making sure I had food or a drink. My husband and I ended up having seconds because I enjoyed my meal that much. You cannot go wrong with using this amazing catering company.

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!!

We contacted Tad regarding catering a rehearsal dinner for approximately 75 people. Tad came to our home with several different samples of food for us to taste and select. He was extremely personable and professional. In the end he not only provided the food but he took care of the glassware, plates, utensils, server and bartender. Tad basically provided turnkey services for our event including clean up. The night was a complete success and everyone raved about the food and overall experience. I would highly recommend Tad to anyone planning a large event and recommend that once you decide on the menu choices just leave everything else to Tad. For a worry free experience Tad's Tasty Treats is definitely the way to go.

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!

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.

The folks at Baby Boy Catering (Richard and Vicky) were fantastic !! From our very first conversation, Richard put at ease and made us feel very confident that they would take care of the whole catered meal experience -- and they did !! The food was wonderful. We had grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries and onion rings with some of Richard's special sides- of special note were the mac and cheese, baked beans and home made chili. They arrived on time, were great to work with and cleaned everything up when they left. We highly recommend Baby Boy Catering !!!

We had requested a caterer for a "Fiesta" themed dinner for 40, and I was initially hesitant based on the title of Limoges Cakes and Confections. Kristina however was always quick to respond to my inquiries and assured me her background in Latin American cuisine would work well with what we were wanting. She brought us a few samples based on the menu we wanted to work around and we were hooked based on her samples. She and her husband worked our event and we could not have been happier with their professionalism, communication, ease of payment (through Venmo), punctuality and presence at our party. We had several guests request her business cards. Truly, the food was outstanding and the compliments from our guests were as numerous as the stars that were out that evening. Her sauces especially were unique, original and addicting. The shrimp and steak were grilled at our home (using a green egg) to perfection and her sides were delectable. She even accommodated my request to make a guacamole using my recipe that my family adores. The final touch were three pavlovas she made and were the exclamation point on our evening and why she is known for cakes and confections. My only hesitation leaving this review is that she won't be available next time we would like to hire her! If I could leave TEN stars, I would!

Sean created an exquisite gourmet dinner in our home. He complimented the dinner with elegant flowers and tableware. His creations were as beautiful to behold as they were savory and flavorful to the palate. Sean was the consummate professional, arriving early, coming prepared and doing all of his own prep and clean up. If you are considering an experience like this, I highly recommend Sean. If something less intimate is desired, the foods and flavors were still amazing.

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.
