I had Dare to Taste do my Holiday Party on 12-13-15 at my 55 plus community clubhouse in Westboro Ma. Jen Royles service and food presentation is beyond words. I would recommend her to anyone for any type of an event she is a amazing person in her cooking and personality. Thank you so much Jen for a outstanding job and hope to see you again in the near future. Mary Walters

Sara and her team provided fantastic catering services to a house party of forty people. Sara customized the menu and provided the right service and peace of mind to the host for the occasion. Guests gushed at the exquisite spread and food. Where so many caterers are high priced and rigid, Sara's courtesy, professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness and affordability back an art form.

For more than 15 years I have been involved in fundraising. I have worked with dozens of caterers over these many years and I can confidently say that Cristo's Kitchen and Catering is the best that I have worked with. Outstanding service, detail oriented, professional, delicious food, honest and a great guy. Highly recommended and I look forward to working with them again.

Daniel has a wonderful personality and was very easy to work with. He did a tasting with our social committee and was open to our feedback. He created a magnificent meal at our holiday dinner with both hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, with items made from scratch, and delicious entrees and desserts. The quality was outstanding, and the quantity was large. We will hire him again for next year's party.

John and his team were very professional!! They performed duties beyond their scope because my event planner wasn't doing her job. They all-in-all were instrumental at making sure my guests, myself and husband were well taken care of, from bringing water and a platter of food out to us when pictures were being taken, communicating with our DJ in a professional manner which in turn prompted my DJ to make a public announcement on how spectacular J & L Catering was. If I hadn't mentioned, the food was fantastic. I had great reviews from my family and friends for days/weeks. I would whole heartedly recommend John of J & L Caterers for all weddings.

Julie has done both parties and cooking class at my home. The parties are always unique and lovely after the first one I have always left all the details and ideas to her. She did an incredible party for my husbands 65th birthday. Everyone raved about it for months. We did the cooking classes with another couple and it was more fun and entertaining than I imagined it could be. We learned so much and it made cooking fun for all of us again. She has marvelous ideas and so many tips to make things easier. We have another party planned for the holidays and can't wait to see her innovative ideas. She is truly a delight to work with.

I think it is a resounding testimony when guests at a party are taking a photo of a persons business card during an event. Everything William did was impeccable, and made himself totally available during the event. I would (and will) recommend William to anyone that ever asks me about potential caterers for any event. I have no faults whatever to highlight, I'm sure that if I asked William to mow the lawn as part of festivities preparation that he would have done it without question.

My company has used Hostess Catering for dinner 4 nights a week for over year. They are flexible, professional, creative and dependable. It's very hard to satisfy a large group every night with many different tastes, diets and eating habits. These ladies always come up with a fun menu every week that appeals to meat lovers and vegetarians. Hostess even catered our Holiday Party in December of 2014 and did all the planning from menus to table settings to waitstaff. They worked hard and I looked like a Super Star! These women do a knock out job and no job is too big for them to handle.

I found Malone Catering on Thumbtack while assisting my son to find a caterer for his wedding. When I first saw the menus and prices I really thought I had to be misunderstanding, His prices are so reasonable that I could not believe he was in any way related to other wedding caterers. It seems that all wedding services have a 4X markup and we really needed to stay within a very frugal budget. I called Chef Marty and found him to be very easy to work with and very accommodating and I sent his info to my son immediately. The wedding last Sunday at Camp Kiwanee was beautiful and the guests raved about the delicious food. We had requested a buffet style and Marty and his staff did the serving. Absolutely wonderful. And I cannot say enough about his staff. They were so unobtrusive I never noticed them clearing after dinner but they did an incredible job. And every one of them was friendly and helpful and seemed happy to be there. I know my son and is new wife were extremely pleased with Malone Catering. We will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a reasonable price.

If I could give Ken 10 stars I would. After getting my quote, I assumed the quality of the food would not be good because of the low price. Most caterers overcharge for weddings, but his quote was very affordable. All of the references I got were positive, the taste test exceeded expectations, then the actual food that we got the wedding day was just fantastic. We had about 100 people in Newport from a variety of backgrounds and the overwhelming consensus was that this was the best meal they've had at a wedding and it was healthy. He made us kale salad, quinoa salad, roast chicken, veggie lasagna, roast beef, and mixed veggies. The bar tending staff he brought was great and affordable too. And he brought plates and silverware which saved us a ton. I have no complaints and would enthusiastically recommend Ken for you wedding or other event.

Shamia provided a delicious buffet for my son's wedding brunch for 15 people. She even took the time to transfer additional food onto her serving platters to make everything look just right. People loved the food, which included beef tenderloin with horseradish sauce, an arugula, goat cheese and pear salad, a roasted sweet potato and mango salad, two kinds of delicious frittatas (which the bride said were the best she had ever tasted), and potatoes au gratin. She also prepared a two-layer green-tea cake with buttercream and coconut frosting that was perfection. She brought a lovely server, Paula, with her to handle all the details of prepping, keeping things fresh, and cleaning up. We had mountains of leftovers, and everyone was delighted.

Cory and his company Fenway Sausage Works catered our wedding. My wife grew up in Rhode Island, and like any other New Englander she is a Red Sox fan to the core. Our wedding was baseball themed and Fenway Sausage works fit the occasion to a T. The menu choices were simple, easy to follow and easy to choose and move forward with while planning our wedding. Cory made a pre site visit to make sure he was best able to accomadate our wedding ideas. Like any business you have the contracts to deal with, but FSW was simple and easy, and then Cory seemed to go way above and beyond what he agreed to do and made the food at our wedding memorable and priceless. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced, I personally recommend the walking taco at any event. My mouth still waters from it. Cory we thank you and your wife for being part of our day, we consistantly here about the food from our wedding when we visit family in the area. If we ever have another catered event in the area, we will be sure to schedule it with your availability.

I highly recommend Matt Stogryn as private Chef for parties large and small. I have worked with Matt on a Holiday Party for 100, and a dinner party for 12. Both times, Matt consulted with me with plenty of advance notice regarding menu, food restrictions, and drink pairings. Matt was on time, very organized with his prep. Matt was charming and knowledgeable when presenting each course to my guests, and the food was fantastic! Matt was clear on pricing in advance, took care of every detail. Wit Matt in the kitchen, I was able to enjoy my guests, and we all loved the food.

    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.
