It was very easy setting up our food truck catering event. The payment process was smooth, the menu customization was excellent, and the entire event was low stress. The truck arrived early, set up was quick and efficient, service to my employees was fast and friendly, plus the food was delicious! I would recommend Gotta Have It to anyone!

We recently lost my mother-in-law's husband and I offered to help by hiring the catering service for the memorial service to be hosted at my MIL's house. After a short search online I came across Thumbtack and quickly after I received a quote from The Bountiful Basket. After reviewing a few other catering companies, I decided to go with them based on previous reviews and a first call I had with Mike where he put me at ease letting me know everything was going to be taken care of. Mike and Ellen were exceptional! They were able to respond to our needs by delivering great buffet-style catering during our memorial service. Ellen, our server, was very professional and took care of everything. It was such a relief to be able to count with great level of professionalism during such a difficult time. In addition, many guests mentioned the great quality of the food and service. My mother-in-law was very pleased and thankful! I would highly recommend The Bountiful Basket 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!!

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.

We had Taqueria cater a corporate lunch and it was excellent. Everything was perfectly prepared, astonishingly affordable, and they are some of the nicest people to work with. The food was so good that I know of at least one person that ordered dinner from them to take home to her family.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
