Chef Serge did a great job preparing hot hors d'oeuvres and mini dessert for 30 guests at our holiday open house last weekend. He arrived in advance with two women to help serve and left our kitchen cleaner than when they arrived. He was respectful of our budget, quick to answer email, and made the whole experience of working together easy and enjoyable. Among the appetizers served: Chef Serge's chicken samosas with delicious (African inspired?) filling, shrimp scorpions with spicy sauce to die for and bread pudding were the big hits of the night. Merci Chef Serge!

I can tell you from experience that Top of the City is by far and away the best deal for a 5 star catering experience. Our 6th daughter was just married and I wish we had found Top of the City for the first 5. They gave us the best price with the most elegance and the most complete service than any of the previous caterers we used or interviewed, and we probably have checked out 30 during the past few years. Our guests raved over the appetizers, the dinner was nicely prepared and plentiful. The staff was very professional and friendly. Our wedding reception went smoothly and we were free to enjoy ourselves. Maribel the owner was immediately responsive every step of the way in the planning and flexible in accommodating our special needs and desires. Top of the City gets my vote for the best deal in town.

I have to say, I don't usually rate anyone perfectly. However, working with Eleven Courses was truly the best experience. Not only do they provide exceptional customer service and final products, but they were also a pleasure to work with and so flexible in accommodating our asks and making our vision a reality. We had a custom menu that we worked directly with Jim to hone the family Indian recipes and make them something perfect for our blended family. If you are looking for a caterer for any event, big or small, I highly recommend working with Eleven Courses Catering. You will receive great value for your investment!

I would recommend Stonehill Catering to anyone! From the first time we spoke till the very last min they were responsive, thoughtful and listened to the needs. Our wedding was scheduled for last year and we had to move it a whole year and they did with no problem. They go above and beyond to fit your needs and ensure you are getting what you want! My guests could not stop talking about the food that was served. Lastly they did a awesome job in ensuring that the bridal party was taken care when they returned from photos! Honestly this company is the best and sweetest to work with! 👏👏😁

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.

They were FANTASTIC, especially Candi. The food was delivered a little later than we'd discussed but it was up and ready to go before the event started and went off without a hitch. Couldn't speak any more highly of them!!!

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!!!

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.

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.

The impeccable service staff and food at Pema’s Restaurant is what makes all of the events that I host very successful. Their professionalism is unmatchable and their food is great for my events because everyone enjoys a comforting, home cooked meal. I highly recommend using their catering/event services in the DMV area.

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.
