Nikki and Frank were fantastic! I needed a caterer for Christmas dinner. Nikki worked with me to develop the menu based on our guest list... little kids and some gluten-free adults. I wanted a kid-friendly and yet sophisticated dinner, which I am pleased to say we enjoyed! The delivery and set up service was definitely worth it. It was the first Christmas were I could actually enjoy the day. Thank you!

I needed help cleaning up my diet and found Chef Katie Simmons via a Google search. I'm going on 2 months now and have to say that it was a life changing decision to hire Katie to cook and deliver personally made meals for me. I'm a busy professional and have found that by using her personal chef services, I have actually saved time and money (by eliminating buying my own groceries that can go bad before I can cook them) . She cooks for basically any type of diet you want or need. For health reasons I wanted to try a vegan and gluten fee diet just to see how I would feel. The results: I've never felt healthier and have lost a little fat around my middle. Katie personalizes the meals to my tastes and avoids foods that I dislike. Everything is personally delivered with easy reheat instructions and the food is delicious! My favorites so far: beet burgers with sweet potato fries, vegan/gf spinach and mushroom lasagna, vegan Shepard's pie. I also loved the Thai green curry and Pad Thai. She even delivers fresh fruit already cut up --which makes it much more likely that I'll eat fruit. Katie also lets me know which dishes are easily frozen so that I choose to order 2 weeks of worth of food for every other week deliveries. I now bring my lunch to work and as a result, many colleagues have asked about her. It's great to look forward to these guilt-free, healthy meals. Best decision I've made for a long time. Give her a try. It's not a big commitment and well worth the money.

Gwen was easy to work with, timely in response to emails and on time and professional when dropping off my order. The food was prepared to not only my liking but for my guests as well. Gwen was faced with a gluten free meal and carried it off beautifully.

Flour and Sugar ended up catering two lunches for us. Headcount ranged from 25 to 30 people. We felt we got good food and a good value for the price: the portions were the right size, and there was variety in the menu including pretty great desserts. Additionally the menus all had a vegetarian component built in, so everyone was happy. Also, they were able to accommodate a last minute gluten-free request. They were nice and easy to work with. My only complaint is that the second day, the food came later that expected and the commencement of several meetings hung in the balance, so we had to work around that. Despite that inconvenience, we will definitely work with Flour & Sugar again!

I ordered gluten free cupcakes for my supervisor's birthday. Whipped Desserts responded to my request with a quick turn around. The cupcakes were delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Will definitely order from Whipped Desserts and Appetizers again and again.

I hired Jemine to vend at a couple events I was organizing. She can prepare simple appetizers to fine dining! Her meals were always fresh and delicious. I have also been pleasantly surprised with her pairing of different ingredients. I don't have any dietary restrictions and I know some of her dishes were lactose or gluten free. I would be none the wiser if she hadn't told me, they certainly weren't lacking in flavor! I look forward with working with Meine Kuche again!

We started offering free lunches to our team members every Friday. I vetted several services and ended up going with ZeroCater. They work with very good vendors in Chicago and we have loved the variety we have seen. They also support local restaurants and caterers so it's been nice seeing that instead of chains that we were used to. Great service and no contract; we recommend them.

"Paul and his team did a fabulous job. The food was delicious, presentation impeccable and Paul and team brought a bright energy to the evening. Highly recommended!"--a quote from one of our guests, and I completely agree! I loved it so much, we are considering not going out to restaurants anymore in order to invite Huegah back as often as we may. Every morsel is so delectable, I could not stop eating; honestly, I have never before cleaned my plate at each course. By far the most exquisite experience at a private event I've attended anywhere in the world.

In planning a surprise birthday breakfast for my girlfriend, Cedar came through big time! She helped me work out a menu by providing several options and what she made was superb. She was flexible, friendly, on time and totally professional. She also fulfilled a last-minute request to make a gluten-free birthday cake, when my original baker didn't come through. Everyone who ate the cake at my girlfriend's birthday dinner RAVED about it. Evidently finding a delicious, gluten-free cake is difficult. But Cedar whipped up some serious magic and everyone at the birthday dinner could not have been more impressed. I definitely plan on going back to Cedar in the future!

    I had Greg Wisinski make a cupcake cake for my bridal shower. It was absolutely delicious and so beautiful! The cupcakes were homemade rumchata flavor with an amazing frosting which was also homemade and rumchata flavored! He iced them perfectly and shaped them all into a beautiful wedding dress with bling! It was a huge hit at my shower. Everyone raved about how delicious and beautiful it was!! Working with him was so easy and hassle free. His imagination is awesome and so creative, my cake was more than I could have asked for! I would suggest him for any event or party!

      Noah catered and hosted a beautiful underground dinner. It was a standing, small plate dinner which included quail eggs in salt, a marinated jicama and pickled onion on pear chip topped with creme fresh, a hash with candied bacon, a delicious, homemade butternut squash ravioli with a brown butter sauce and my personal favorite, a goat cheese ice cream with stone fruit. Each dish was incredible and the favor profiles were on point. Noah was a gracious host and made sure everyones needs were met including offering gluten free and vegetarian options. I would definitely attend another one of his events in a heartbeat.

        Look no further for the utmost professionalism and the best quality food/catering! I cannot rave enough about Michael! I hosted my baby shower at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. Most of my family is on the east coast, so the guest list was only about 20 people. I knew I didn't want myself or another guest to have to worry about cooking and a few of my guests have specific dietary restrictions so I wasn't comfortable ordering from a restaurant. One of my friends works at the law firm where Michael is the chef and passed along his information, letting me know he also caters these types of private events. Plus, she kept RAVING about how awesome his food is. Michael was so refreshing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, detail oriented, and extremely professional (not to mention so friendly!) We had an initial phone meeting to discuss menu ideas, dietary restrictions, and theming. He got back to me with a preliminary menu (including a full ingredient list) and questions regarding what my kitchen was capable of (how big my oven is, how many burners I have, etc.) As I said, very detail oriented. He also came up with thoughtful, creative ideas for my friend's dietary restrictions so they could enjoy the "fun" treats, too! One of my favorite gluten free treats were his dark chocolate coconut tarts- totally delicious. The day of the shower he arrived right on time with everything we discussed for the final menu. He was professional and completely unobtrusive. He ensured all of the food was the correct temperature when served. He even came prepared with ingredient cards to put out with the food. Everything was DELICIOUS. But I think the best part of hiring Michael was that he left my kitchen SPOTLESS! I swear it was cleaner than when he started. Seriously, look no further for in-home catering. I already know who will do Baby Rose's first birthday party. I swear, Michael is Chicago's best kept secret.

          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.
