We hired Chef Rich and his team to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. His team serviced 60 of my guests. The full catering service included delivery/pickup of rental equipment, setup , clean up, servers, & a bartendar. They're service made the day/night enjoyable as they took care of everything including picking up the ice, mixers, etc. All i had to do was ask. The food they prepared was delicious, we had a combination of meat appetizers and vegetarian appetizers. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. The only thing i would have changed was to have the servers pass out the food more consistently to my guests rather than having it placed on a table in the corner as it quickly got cold and perhaps didn't taste as good as it would have hot/warm. Other than that my experience with Chef's Most Wanted Catering & Chef Services was outstanding. I would definitely use their services again for both big and small events. Thank you for making the night a success!

The service, quality of food, reliability and price was outstanding! Allen was able to prepare breakfast and lunch for a crowd of approx. 500 people. The presentation was very well organized and appealing. Allen went above and beyond to make sure we were ready for the event with follow up phone calls, emails and coordinating a time to visit the location for proper set-up. It was extremely impressive how Allen was able to handle a tight timeline between breakfast and lunch. Many compliments were shared by those who enjoyed the delicious food. We highly recommend Allen for your next catering service needs! Thank you Allen for helping make our event a huge success! Look forward to working with you again.

I just had a wonderful wedding for 70 people which Chic Chef Catering catered. I could not speak more highly of Ravi and his team. From the first contact, Ravi was very professional and accommodating. He was able to work within my budget while offering more than any other caterer would. He offered sound advice on how to get my vision realized and everything was perfect. His menu is extensive enough to accommodate anyone's taste and needs. He set up a prime rib carving station which really classed up the event. The food was amazing. I received plenty of complements for both his food and service. He checked in regularly before the event and kept me updated continuously. He went above and beyond my every expectation. I will not only recommend Chic Chef Catering for any event, I will employ his services again if I ever need catering services again.

This is now my second time working with Joseph Burby and Inglenook Catering. Inglenook catering was absolutely a joy to work with! Joe did a food tasting for us, gave wonderful recommendations that helped guide me in making decisions, and was VERY accommodating. He was a wonderful communicator and the food was a HOME RUN! Everyone at our fundraiser banquet was so impressed with the meal and the staff that was provided. This is the second time I have used Inglenook; from a 90 person event to a 350 person event, Inglenook is the caterer to have.

We used Just A Bite for our son's wedding in Wheaton held at a local church with 125 guests. We coordinated everything long distance as we live in Minnesota. Loretta was super responsive and a delight to work with on all details and questions. Everyone raved about the appetizers and there was plenty for all. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity provided. Great selections to choose from. I would highly recommend her catering services.

My daughter's graduation party was a dream come true for me and my daughter. C2Details took my ideas and brought them to life in full color. She arrived 2 hours early, had everything we discussed, and went to work transferring transforming the space. Her attention details surpassed my expectations and my guests were pleasantly surprised and impressed by the decor The backdrop allowed everyone to get a good photo with the graduate in front of a classy background. Yhe glassblocked centerpieces with my daughter's name was over the top. I would definitely use her again for my next event. The bar has been set.

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

We live near Frato's and when our son was graduating, he wanted Frato's to cater it. We knew they have great pizza, but we never knew they have an even better catering team. I have a million questions and Michael answered every single one of them promptly and with detail! He helped me decide on a deluxe pita package, delicious Mac n Cheese and out of this world brownies when I was going to go the boring route of more traditional mostaccioli and beef. I'm glad he encouraged me to try something different. That wasn't the best part though. We learned that Frato's teaches culinary students how to run a restaurant (I'm not on facebook but I guess everyone knew about this but me). All the delivery drivers are actually culinary students. So they came in their professional chef coat and set everything up for us. I'm not used to such pleasant and professional delivery drivers. Amazing work and I wish every business was as detailed as Michael/Frato's. He told me he'd make it stress free and I'm a worrier, but it was as stress free as possible for me!

Go ahead and hire Heather... I promise you won't be disappointed!! Heather was EVERYTHING and More. I don't think I've every hired a last minute event assistant and had someone so ready to take charge and lead a project. We needed last minute support on a networking event in Chicago and she was more than willing to pitch and really lead the set up, pour drinks, manging the catering, greet guests, set up A/V. SHE WAS AMAZING! She'll always be my go-to.

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.
