I was extremely fortunate to have Jen Royle host a private catering event for me at my home. I was so impressed with Jen and all her services. Not only did she help plan the perfect menu for me and my guests, but she was on time, executed everything impeccably, and was the ultimate professional. I personally wanted Jen to interact with my guests and she couldn't have been more fun, energetic, or passionate about her food and cooking experiences. It should go without saying that the food was outstanding but just incase you were wondering... it was amazing. I had no idea what type of finger foods would work together but Jen planned the perfect combinations from mini chicken & waffles to tomato soup & grilled cheese shooters to beautiful salads and crostini's. Thank you, Jen for your outstanding catering services and I truly look forward to using you for all my upcoming needs!

I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Manda & Me Catering. After Julie's prompt response to my Thumbtack inquiry we spoke over the phone about my ideas and concerns re: menu for the surprise birthday party I was planning. She was warm and professional, offering suggestions re: serving options as this was my 1st time hosting an event of this magnitude. Julie translated my jumbled ideas into several varied & balanced menu options from which to choose. Leading up to the day of the event she stayed in communication, making sure to check in about little details like color scheme for the party so the paper goods she brought didn't clash. On the day of the event Julie was on-time and so efficient with set up, creating a gorgeous and tempting display. Of course, not only did the food look amazing but it tasted delicious! Our guests raved about the menu and the empty chafing dishes really spoke volumes! I'm so grateful to Julie for her collaboration for this party and I highly recommend her for your upcoming event!

William catered our family style wedding reception for 170 people at a private venue and we could not be happier. Not only is the food he cooks amazing, the service he provides is second to none. Prior to reaching out to William, we had been working with another larger, better known, and well-reviewed catering company. They turned out to be entirely unhelpful, unwilling to offer alternatives to help keep our budget manageable and did not take kindly to any requests outside their standard menu and offerings. After eating the deposit on our first caterer, we gave William a call and he provided the exact opposite experience. From our first phone call until after the event was over, he was wonderful to work with. He helped us with crafting a menu, determining alcohol volume (we had a backyard wedding), cocktail and reception layout, and even timeline. He was always very quick to respond, made extremely helpful suggestions, worked around our schedules (and held the tasting in our apartment), accommodated changes to dishes to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, provided more food (and rentals!) for far less money than other caterers we assessed, and had an extremely professional service staff. After it was all over, he put some leftover food in our fridge and my wife and I were able to enjoy it again for dinner the following night with a bottle of champagne. If you're looking for a caterer that really cares not only about the food that he cooks but also about you and making your event amazing, you've already found him.

Lori Rizzo was a pleasure to work with from the first second of our conversation through many twists & turns in the catering job (including 3 changes of venue) up until the excellent food and service she provided at the event. This was for a large anniversary party of 300+. Lori helped us design a delicious and cost-effective menu, working with our budget but putting the satisfaction of the guests as a top priority as well. She provided excellent and plentiful appetizers and desserts for our guests. Through the various venue changes, we had to keep altering the menu, but she was always patient and solved every problem. She was very responsive via email and phone, and I was never for one moment worried that she wouldn't come through with excellent catering services. She had solutions to all of our various challenges in an unconventional space with last-minute changes. I would strongly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

I've worked with Benjamin for the last six years using him as a caterer at various events ranging from 200+ person concerts (5-6 per summer) to intimate household dinners. Every time he has been extremely professional in his correspondence and delivery. His food has continually wowed guests and customers alike, and it is obvious he has a talent for tailoring the menu to the occasion. Additionally, he has a knack for pairing wines and cocktails and doing so in an extremely affordable price range. He and his team are truly gems in the culinary/catering world. I can not recommend his services high enough.

William was amazing for our Corporate Picnic! After working with him on a menu, he came up with an collaborated with me on the perfect menu for my company as well as making sure that our vegetarian co-workers needs were met. He was wonderful in reassuring me that the event would still be wonderful even with our in climate weather of rain but he was well prepared with a tent of his own and came promptly to set up before guests arrived. He was quick on his feet and brought his partner Jennifer who attended to our needs as well as assisted in running food to our buffet line to keep it warm and stocked for the slow accrual of guests. Since then, everyone has been raving about the food, especially the steak tips! They were an amazing team, the food was spectacular and I wholeheartedly would recommend them for any catering that you could need. They went above and beyond.

We had an Indian fusion wedding last weekend at an off-site venue, and Simply Elegant Catering did a fantastic job. We originally contacted SEC to provide full service catering and American style food, with the intent of having another restaurant provide Indian food. However, SEC’s chef offered to make the Indian food for our tasting, and it was delicious. As a result, SEC caterered both style menus. They also worked with us to develop a mostly vegetarian menu to meet the needs of the groom and many of our guests. A few of our guests actually commented that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Sam of SEC was very helpful and responsive, and his entire staff seemed eager to work with us to help make our event run smoothly and meet our wishes. And SEC’s services were very reasonably priced. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about SEC, and would recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food with friendly service.

Chef Reed and and his staff of culinarians and service staff provided a wonderful holiday feast for Phillips Exeter Academy. The attention to flavor profiles, detail in execution in all the selections were exceptional. Chef Reed attended all planning meetings, developed all the menus based on a shared vision while providing timely quotes. The wait-staff were professional, well presented and attentive to guests while ensuring the food presentation were maintained. I would highly recommend Thyme and TIDE Catering.

    Amanda catered my wife's 40th birthday party, and she did an exceptional job! She worked with me to create a menu, providing me with a number of different options, including options for guests with dietary restrictions. The food and presentation were great, and our guests were raving about it days afterward! Amanda also was a big help during the party, replenishing the hors d'oeuvres and drink dispersers, refilling plates, cups and napkins, and then cleaning up the kitchen afterward. Amanda took care of it all, and I didn't have to worry about anything! I would highly recommend her for your event!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      How much should catering cost per person?

      Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

      • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
      • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
      • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
      • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
      • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
