I hired Gotta Have It Catering for my housewarming party. The whole experience was great; Vince and Travis were responsive, put together a great food selection that WOWed my guests, and showed up as scheduled to set-up before the party. They took the stress out of planning the food and everyone at the party kept asking who catered and loved the creative and tasty menu.

Due to Mike and his server, I was able to actually enjoy my own dinner party! The guests raved about how good the food was, and we ended the party dividing up the left overs. I was able to relax and leave it all up to the server. I highly recommend hiring a server(s). She brought the food, set it all up on my platters and then washed up when we were done. Highly recommended!

Kendra, was responsive, on time and oh yes, she delivered deliciously tasting food! On May 21, 2017 she catered our son's and his brides wedding. After the wedding we asked family members to critique the food; we had roasted chicken, plum meatballs, mashed potatoes and on request of my son, mac and cheese. Everyone unanimously said everything was delicious, they wouldn't change a thing. So, yes, we highly recommend Kendra, Cooking with A Star. She was also spot on with the signature cocktail drink! Cooking with a Star absolutely gets 5 stars from us. Dave and Caroline Colonna

Antionette and her staff did a very good job in catering a graduation party for a total of 150 people. The food presentation was very nice, food itself was good, the ice tea and mineral water drinks were delicious. Overall good job the only thing I would have liked is for the food to have been left behind after the staff finished serving, as we had some guests who arrived very late. Would use again.

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 have had several experiences with S3 as a guest of events that they catered and also a client. Raj Mistry and his team are very detail oriented, care about the client's wants/needs, but ultimately want to get it right for the guests of the event. They have a lot of experience and know how to execute. After-all, the food makes the party!

The staff was professional and did a fabulous job making sure all that were there had what they needed and were taken care of. I cannot imagine anyone else doing such a great job and be so affordable too. Thanks for everything.

Chef Melissa catered my Christmas dinner this past December and it was delicious. She honestly made the best greens I've ever had in my life. I could have eaten just those and been happy, but everything was great. Moist turkey and ham. Great mac & cheese and sweet potatoes. And I can't forget about the deviled eggs. This lady has skills! She even made a vanilla Crown Royal punch with that was the perfect holiday drink to wash it all down with. Be careful with that one because it was so good and smooth, you won't want to stop drinking it. Everyone left super full and happy. I will definitely be using her for my next event.

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.
