Let me start by saying that as an event planner, I would like to refer Chef Kev as my "caterer of choice" to all of my clients. Chef Kevin's catering company is FABULOUS! He is not only has a wonderful personality - but it is clear that he loves what he does and is passionate about preparing quality and healthy food. His food and customer care are outstanding. He was able to accommodate our law firm open house of 70 with no problem. He planned a creative and exquisite menu, arrived early before the event, came well prepared and set up a beautiful table. The guests were blown away by his food - which was DELICIOUS! Several guests requested his business card, and there were actually no leftovers... (Teriyaki Meatballs and Mesquite Chicken Wings were to die for!).

Chef Serge and Aaron are an exceptional team. Our Memorial Day grill / pool party was fueled by chef’s outstanding food, service, and conversation. I’m not sure we can have another large party without the expertise of Chef Serge! Highly recommend he and his team for your next outing. We are already planning ours. Many thanks for making memories for my family. Bring in Chef Serge to cater your food needs and just worry about having fun!

I can only say good things about my experience with Chef Myles. Everything was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I was unsure of the menu and Chef Myles helped me plan what to serve and the party goers loved every single item. I will use Chefs 2 Go Catering for all my catering needs!!!!!!

On a whim, I decided to use Thumbtack to find a caterer for my mom's 72nd birthday party. OMG. I am SOOOO glad that I did!! I have planned a number of parties in my day, and I have yet to find one with such great professionalism and wonderful customer service I experienced with AC Catering. First off, they can fix just about anything!! While I had a basic menu in mind, I was forced to rethink things based on the wide variety of options presented by AC Catering. Other caterers wanted me to come up with the menu initially without giving me an idea of their speciality items. With AC Catering, you can get ANYTHING from breakfast, lunch, dinner..including smoked pit grilled items. So, I contacted them with my initial thoughts for a menu. Within 2 days, I received a proposal from the owner, George. Pricing was perfect, even with delivery. Additionally, they provide utensils, plates, condiments, etc. I was pleased. I had to make a last minute change. George was able to accommodate my request with no hassle. I called him just to make sure this change wouldn't pose a problem. He said "No worries. I got you." And, he wasn't kidding. So, party day comes. I'm a bit nervous because I never tasted the food or visited his brick and mortar store. However, the previous reviews from Thumbtack customers were all stellar. After meeting George in person, I totally understand why the reviews are so stellar. George is extremely pleasant and engaging. He arrived on time and was totally prepared to set up everything. He shared some jokes with my brother. Gave compliments to the birthday girl. He even shared the history about his family business. This party was for 50+ people. So, everything had to be right. Let me just say that George and his team didn't disappoint! The greens (with smoked turkey), baked beans and rice were EXCELLENT. I've eaten a lot of rice in my day. But, can I tell you how fabulous the yellow rice is? Very delicious. For meats, I ordered bbq chicken and burgers. Again, everything was wonderful. You would think burgers would just be bland and lacking flavor. NOT AC Catering burgers. They were thick, juicy, and seasoned well. More than enough food was provided. In fact, I had to encourage guests to take home plates of food. The deviled eggs were tasty. However, they were a bit messy due to lots of filling. But, it was totally fine. My guests put the smash on them. All throughout the event, everyone had positive comments and asked "who catered the food?" I didn't hesitate to tell them about George and AC Catering. I HIGHLY recommend them. In fact, I'm trying to find another excuse to celebrate so I can utilize them again!! Thank you, George, for making my mom's birthday so great. You will be hearing from me again. May your catering business continue to grow. God Bless you and your family.

Teresa and her team were fabulous. I had a Oktoberfest for our community event with around 200 people. From day one Teresa was in constant contact with me. She chose a menu that was spot on. The day of the event she arrived early and brought a total of 7 people. Her staff was all very professional and very willing to work. We had tons of compliments not only on the food but Teresa and her staff. They kept the trays of food full at all times and let us keep all the leftovers. We will absolutely use her for all our future catering needs. We have also received a few messages from residents asking for her information. I’m so happy we chose to hire Shore is delicious.

I LOVE the healthy catering company, I've ordered from them multiple times and not once have I been disappointed in the slightest. You can see and taste that every dish is made with the tastiest spices and combinations of foods and it always tastes amazing. The food usually becomes the topic of conversation for my gatherings because nothing is mor convenient than being able to have finger food as well as full dishes. on top of that, they are very punctual and are a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't think of ordering from another company after ordering from the healthy catering company!!

Honestly I don’t even know where to begin because my whole experience with Sandra was more than amazing. I started talking to Sandra six months before my event to begin coordinating. Throughout my communications with her over the past few months she was responsive, creative, highly organized and helped plan the most perfect dinner for my friend’s bachelorette. She worked with me from start to finish to prepare the most amazing menu. She arrived with her two assistants and they were extremely friendly, organized, professional, efficient and the food was utterly amazing. Our group of 7 girls just couldn’t stop raving about the food! Sandra set up a GORGEOUS table scape and printed the most adorable customized menus. everything was just seamless. I don’t have enough good things to say about this experience. It was absolutely amazing and unforgettable. It was something all of us girls will always cherish. Thank you Sandra for the most beautiful night!!!

Chef Nikki and team catered a family gathering of mine yesterday. Leading up to the event, she always responded to all of my inquires in a prompt manner. I was a little nervous planning the event and she always made me feel comfortable. I actually feel like I have known her for years which is not the case. The food was fantastic and everyone enjoyed themselves. The mac and cheese was on point! There was more then enough food for everyone that attended and more then enough to take home afterward. The catering company is affordable and I will use them again in the future.

Soleia's catered a graduation party for us recently for about 50 people. They did a wonderful job from nuts to bolts, visiting our home beforehand to see where and how they would lay things out, bringing staff to assist in setup both with their food and equipment and our decorations. That was a welcome surprise. The food was delicious and we received a lot of compliments about the catering. The cake that she baked was wonderful and again many compliments. They went out of their way to make everyone happy and worked very hard while they were there. We ate leftovers for a week! They also arranged for a tent, tables and chairs because I wasn't sure about the weather and I had many people tell me it was a perfect event. Overall, they did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend them.

I ordered a 10 pack of healthy personal meals, and got restaurant quality lunches and dinners. The service is outstanding (professional AND she delivers), the food is beautifully plated and it has incredible flavor. It is clear that Haute Eatz does not compromise flavor when crafting these health conscious dishes. I love the convenience of the premade, fresh meals and the paired flavors of the food. I will be ordering again!

It was my pleasure to attend a wedding reception planned by International Catering and Events, LLC. The atmosphere of the room after it was decorated by ICE was cozy and romantic. Upon entering the reception, what caught my eye was a beautiful sign with the names of the guests listed under the table number where we would sit. The tables were set-up very elegantly! The head table for the bride and groom had a backdrop behind it with the word "love." I would definitely recommend International Catering and Events, LLC to anyone who wants their special event to be professionally done and memorable! -Fadeke Gonçalves

Karen Wilder provided catering for my New Years Eve 2016 wedding. The food was excellent! Everything was well seasoned, tender, and flavorful. My wedding did not have a traditional kitchen with a stove, we used chafing dishes. Nevertheless, the food was hot as though it had just come out of the oven! We had a cocktail hour where her staff passed around appetizers - the lamb chops, sushi, and Maryland crab cakes were exceptional! The bartender was quick to serve drinks, and made very good drinks. She also delivered drinks to guests' tables. The staff cleaned up afterwards, and contained any left over food for us after the event. You cannot go wrong with this food! Top notch!

Creative Cuisine catered my mothers 60th Birthday party and I couldn't be happier with their performance. The food was so delicious that guests of the party kept stopping me to inquire about the chef. The owner of the company Deshawn was an absolute professional he created a wonderful menu, he provided a great tasting of the menu options, and he executed the menu flawlessly. I will definitely be using this catering company for all of my catering needs in the future.

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.
