I Could say all in one word... AMAZING..... The experience we had with Chef Daniel as outstanding, we were afraid of hiring someone for this party so we asked him to do a Sampler Dining for us before the party, he came to my house and cook for us the same dishes he offered for the day. Every single dish was Delicious... and from the sampler we had tons of left over. On the day of the party he was here on time, his crew is also Amazing, very friendly, Clean, Nice, helpful etc... Chef Daniel took over my kitchen and cooked for 60 people without interrupting me or my wife asking things from the kitchen, he was able to figure out ever single detail in my kitchen and he left everything in the same way he found. Clean and Organized. All my guests were impressed with the quality and taste of the food and service. I really recommend and will definitely hire him again for any future event. Thanks Chef Daniel and Team. Best Eduardo and Gabriela Muniz

Colin and his wife Kelly were extrmely professional, thorough and so easy to deal with throughout the entire process of planning to the time we said goodbye. We used the services for a bachelorette party of 16 people and the entire group was entirely satisfied and delighted with the food and the services! Colin picked the items from his menu and I trusted him and he did not disappoint! I will definitely be calling Colin and Kelly again for the next event!

BEST wedding dinner ever. William came to our house for a food tasting and we were hooked. All of the appetizers and both of our dinner selections were incredible. William is very personable and understands the financial costs of a wedding. He will make suggestions as he sees fit and do anything within his power to help you stay on budget. Our guests raved about the food and even had fun with William's staff. We will recommend William and his team to anyone looking to cater an event.

So glad I discovered Heidi! I have little time to cook with 2 kids in a variety of activities. Heidi's meals are beyond easy & convenient - they save us from eating pizza & other junk every week. The variety on the menu is wonderful - we try new things all the time. Heidi is also great with allergies - we have multiple & I have every confidence we are in good hands with her experience & knowledge in the allergy realm. Oh, the food is also delish!! Highly recommend.

We hired Randall to cook a birthday dinner for 13 people. The workspace was small but Randall made it work. The food came out hot and on time and was absolutely amazing. Randall was extremely professional followed through 100% with everything that we talked about. The entire evening was phenomenal, I would highly recommend Ran's Kitchen to others and will definitely be using him in the future.

Great food, professional service for our party of 22. The carrot/ginger soup, the chicken tacos, and the fried artichokes were amazing. Everything else was also fantastic, too. All of the guests were very complimentary. Naturally, we were also very pleased with Renee and her staff and am happy to recommend her.

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

    SommerChef was amazing. The recipes were easy enough to do, but were amazingly delicious. I liked how the printed recipes we used during the class were in large enough print that they were easy to read. And the printed copies we were given at the end of the night are well organized. I plan to make five of the recipes tonight – a weeknight, no less – for guests. Great value. Great food.

    Kendra was great! She was very easy to work with and the food was a hit with my guests. Kendra would not settle for a mediocre experience and worked around all the limitations of my event. I definitely know who to call the next time I have a catered 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.

    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.

    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 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.
