While in New Orleans on vacation with friends, I wanted to have a surprise birthday dinner for my husband outside by the swim-spa at the place we were staying. Christopher of CS Events was very easy to work with regarding the menu and the price. He brought everything needed for this meal...table and chairs for six, cutlery, linens and even chair covers! Christopher not only was our chef, he was also our server too! Unfortunately crayfish was out of season when we were there but I still wanted something with New Orleans flair incorporated into the meal. Christopher topped our meal off with a wonderful flambe`. Banana's Foster was the perfect end to a wonderful, delicious meal.

My original caterer canceled on catering our wedding a month before our wedding date. We were looking for another caterer in our budget and found Cafe' Orleans Catering here on Thumbtack. We were discouraged about losing our caterer but Ms. Sears was so pleasant and helpful. Not only did she give us everything we had on the menu from our previous caterer but from the beginning, she totally understood our situation, taste and vision, and because of this we were completely confident that she would do a wonderful job. She went beyond the call of duty on so many occasions. She was so easy to work with, and she kept us super calm. We so appreciate everything she did to make our wedding beautiful, delicious, and special. Many of our guests commented that the staff was incredibly nice and attentive. We certainly felt taken care of by everyone. Perhaps most importantly, the food was AMAZING! It surpassed our very high expectations. Almost everyone commented to us and our planner that the food was the tastiest wedding food they've ever had. Everything was cooked perfectly, and the presentation was just beautiful (even though Ms. Sears jokingly stated that she needs work on presentation). It was just as beautiful as other caterer’s presentation. Plus, we were able to eat more food than expected! Our guests are still raving about all three entrees, and I'm sure they will be for a long time to come. The dessert was absolutely incredible. Assorted cheesecakes are probably my favorite thing, and these were the real deal -- on par with the best I've had. Judging by the lines for the dessert buffet, I'm sure no one missed the cake! In the end, I’m glad we ended up with a different caterer because she is the best. I am sure she gained several customers and I’m working to get her more business. It is the least we can do because we cannot thank her enough!

Chef Maras was our personal chef for my husband's 70th BD celebration. He helped me plan the menu and offered suggestions as to what sort of dishes would work the best for us. The dishes he prepared were amazing! Everyone complimented him on the delicious food and the presentations of the selections were very attractive. It felt so wonderful for us to know that our guests were so blown away by the food that they kept telling us that this party is awesome! Chef Maras' expertise and professionalism are commendable. Also, he is very approachable and easily offered ideas and advice to us and our guests on how the dishes were prepared. There is no doubt in our minds that Chef Maras made our celebration very memorable and a big hit with everyone there. We felt so happy that he made our party a big hit! I definitely would highly recommend Chef Maras to my family and friends. I can't say enough about how hard he worked and how flawlessly he executed the menu for us. Kudos to you, Chef Maras!

Everything about my experience was fantastic. She did a great job in designing and flavoring the cupcakes for my wedding perfectly. They were a huge hit, so much so that it was hard to pick a favorite! She showed up on time at the venue ready to go with the cupcakes to get them displayed. Highly recommend!

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.
