I wanted to have a relaxing dinner party with friends (8) and got just that. Brandon was awesome to work with, very professional and an amazing chef. I have an extreme dairy allergy and he had no issue making an entire dairy free meal. During the planning process I wasnt sure about the salad dressing because in the past I always hated this particular vinegarette. I decided to trust the chef. He came with the discussed dressing (which was really good) and 2 other options just to make sure I was happy. Everyone LOVED the food. So flavorful and great combinations. There wasn't a single menu item that was disliked by anyone. He came fully prepared, delivered an amazing dinner and left my kitchen as clean as it was before he got there. I would definitely recommend and hire again!

I have known Erin for over 10 years and I can always count on her to take care of anything that she undertakes with pride and a smile on her face. For the past four years, Erin has taken care of all the food needed for our Colorado CC camp from planning the meals to preparing, serving and cleaning up afterwards. Taking care of the meals for almost 300 kids and staff for a week is a job in an of itself! Pleasing their palates with different meals including a gluten free option is no easy task but somehow Erin always seems to be able to with a smile on her face. She always seems to find time to help with other details of the camp as well as helping with the campers. I know that Erin has made my life so much easier for that week. She has and will hopefully continue to be an integral part of our camp. I can't say enough about Erin's ability to coordinate all aspects of the meals needed for our camp! Coach Ramsey

I don't have enough words to describe the wonderful food we enjoyed at my daughter's wedding. We knew from our tasting the food was fabulous but would it be that way for so many people? The answer is YES! Regan and Aaron knocked it out of the park. From our initial contact, to our tasting and finally the wedding day Regan was a delight to work with. She was always quick to reply to our emails and no question seemed silly to her. Regan went above and beyond by helping our venue find a substitute wine when one we had chosen was not available. The venue was providing the liquor but Regan stepped in to make things right. If you want a stress free wedding day (or any special occasion) you should have Culinaria cater. You won't regret it!

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.
