The job is still up and coming, but the folks who went to the tasting said the food was outstanding. I will report more after I, myself have a chance to eat the food at the wedding...can't wait. In fact, the people who are responsible for hiring her, are looking for ways to have her cater other events!!

Sara , Daniel and Richard came into our home and we turned our kitchen over to them. By the end of the evening party, they felt like family to us! The food was amazing and the presentation was visually beautiful! Our guests sent us notes afterwards praising the food and caterers!! They were GREAT!!

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.

Sarah came through for our firm in a very short amount of time right before Christmas. We had a wonderful, savory, holiday luncheon that Sarah prepared and served us with all the accoutrements one would expect from a top-notch Boston caterer. Fantastic! We'll be calling on her again for our next company function!

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.

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.

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

The Thanksgiving side dishes were wonderful. My family guests were astonished and delighted with the presentation, quantity, quality and convenience. My daughter, who was a bit skeptical initially, has expressed her interest in requesting Lori's services in the future. Thank you for making our event a success.

Marty has been extremely flexible and was a huge help for our Thanksgiving dinner. He really worked with our budget. We had some issues on our side of the payment but Marty has been more than understanding and very patient. The food above average and everyone really enjoyed the dinner.

I am so glad that I found Chef Michael Haigh to do the catering for my birthday party. He did not disappoint in any way. From beginning to end Michael was a pleasure to work with, very flexible and professional in arranging for the best menu for the birthday meal, and then in delivering on the delicious meal.

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.

    Hire this company! I stumbled across 'Good Food Catering' while researching caterers for a small gathering at my house. Kevin was quick and thorough when answering every question I had. He made the planning easy and painless. The delivery was smooth and the food was DELICIOUS. Each guest went back for seconds. I highly recommend the chicken with the sun dried tomato cream sauce. Give them a try - you won't be disappointed!

    We first saw their catering services with very competitive pricing, we decided to pay the restaurant a visit. The interior is very well done and the food qualify is very good. We got in touch and proceeded to book them for our baby's welcoming party. The Thumb Tack online response is quick, we also got in touch with the owner. We changed the menu and selection three times and they provided confirmation and delivered on-time. Will hire again and will probably dine there. Highly recommend.

      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.
