Chef Serge was eager to please and worked with us throughout the planning process to design a menu that captured our vision for a family wedding dinner. He worked around a number of dietary needs (gluten free and vegetarian options), incorporated vegetables from our garden into several of the recipes, and he even adapted some of the recipes for the kids. The food and service were excellent!

Best value you could get in a wedding catering company! Quick basic info on my wedding since yours might be different: Late May wedding in Maryland, 7-hour reception with cocktail hour and dinner, approx. 100 guests, Manor, garden & tented reception setting, buffet dinner including a mix of food and drinks representing the cultures of the bride & groom (salvadoran, thai, new orleans, baltimore). Just two days after our wedding day I am feeling so good about the decision we made in booking Top of the City Catering. Maribel and her team were absolutely fantastic and we received soooo many compliments on our food, desserts, and cocktails, which were all provided by Top of the City. They had also done a great job of setting up décor for the guest tables, around the venue, and for the buffet and bar areas. In addition, the service throughout the day and night was phenomenal and we (bride & groom) always felt taken care of. For planning, we wanted a rustic, elegant feeling and they did a great job of presenting us ideas that were aligned with our vision. Top of the City Catering is a smaller catering business, but that does not make it any less in quality. When we were first looking into Top of the City I was a little leery because it was much more affordable and it usually is said, "You get what you pay for," but in this case that was NOT true at all. Maribel and her team are very responsive in communication, are very open and welcoming to your ideas and direction, and will always give suggestions from their expertise but still respect your wishes should you want something different. I really hope that Top of the City will gain momentum in growing its business and gaining the respect it deserves. Don't let the size of the company distract you from the amazing service, quality of food, flexibility, and affordable price you will get from Top of the City catering. Get a consultation with them and see for yourself!

I don't think I can truly and fully express how blessed Ryan and I were to have had Eleven Courses as our caterer for our wedding day. From the moment we had our tasting, to the finalizing of details, to the actual wedding day, Ryan and I were in great hands. There was NEVER a doubt in our minds that Eleven Courses would let us down. I feel like I could write an entire essay on how amazing Melissa Benson and the rest of the Eleven Courses crew carried themselves throughout this wedding planning process, without mentioning how amazing the food was...because I could totally write an entire essay on that too. To keep things short though, Melissa was just great with following up and answering all of our questions. Catering to our vegetarian guests was a breeze, and making changes to the contract was effortless. Melissa, I am so sad Ryan and I never got the honor of meeting you in person, but if I could, I would give you a HUGE hug right now for everything you did for us. Chrissy was our day of coordinator, which i was personally ecstatic about because she hosted our food tasting, and I absolutely loved working with her. Chrissy, if you are reading this, I am so sad that i did NOT get a chance to hug you that day, because you were just awesome about listening to our needs, and really making sure that Ryan and I got a chance to eat. Not only that, but Ryan and I came back to the venue and found that the room was absolutely spotless. Thank you SO much for taking care of the cleanup. Now on to the food: I can only say one word: incredible. EVERYONE in the wedding commented on how crazy amazing the food was. We barely had any leftovers!! [Which, I was very sad about haha]. Chef Jim, it was such an honor to have met you....your dishes were excellent. And my goodness, can I just also add how incredibly humble Chef Jim is? This is actually turning into an essay, so to sum it all up, Eleven Courses, I am thoroughly impressed with how great you guys were on our special day. If I ever need catering services, I will call you up in a heartbeat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Lena

I hired Chris for a cooking class for my husband's birthday. We had a great evening: my husband really enjoyed learning from Chris and chatting with him about cooking tips and trends, and the food was absolutely delicious (in particular the vegan/vegetarian options!). There even leftovers which we're enjoying now. Chris was very punctual and friendly, and left the kitchen entirely clean - it's definitely a nice bonus not to have to do any dishes! We highly recommend Chris!

I genuinely can’t say enough good things about this business. I hired AC Catering for two events I held in June and July 2017. Everything was excellent! I was beyond happy with everything from the food, to the services, to the people I interacted with during the planning phase and the actual events. This small, family owned business actually exceeded my expectations. They have an extensive menu to choose from which allowed me to tailor both events’ meals appropriately. The pricing was great and the amount of food I received was more than enough. AC Catering received many compliments for the quality of their food at both of my events. I took a risk and hired them without having tasted any of their food, but I have to say there was no need for worry. The food was also delicious! Both my guests and I enjoyed every bite. The serve and clean up service was also top notch. George Sullivan and his staff were extremely attentive to my needs during my banquet. They helped to ensure that the dinner ran smoothly, and cleanup was quick and efficient. I can't leave this review without noting that it was a great pleasure working with George Sullivan (principal owner/operator) when coordinating my needs. He was very responsive to the myriad of questions I had, extremely flexible as I proposed changes for my event, and just an extremely nice guy. I am so glad I found this business. I will definitely be using AC Catering if I have any catering needs in the future.

We were 2 families with 4 little ones between us on vacation in a rental home. Since going to a restaurant at 5 pm with 4 kids under 4 isn't exactly relaxing, we hired Chef Jackie to prepare an adult meal. It was great- we fed the kids early, then as we were prepping and putting our kids to bed, Chef Jackie came in and prepared. After a sunset cocktail, we had a wonderful 5-star meal. Jackie was super with working around our dietary restrictions - one allergy and one vegetarian, all while providing top restaurant-quality food and delivery. It was as if we did go to a restaurant, without the hassle of dressing up, traveling or finding a babysitter. Hiring Chef Jackie was one of the highlights of our vacation. If we are in the area again, I will definitely re-hire. Highly recommend!

Thank you for making my holiday party a memorable event. You are an absolute joy to work with and your laughter is infectious. The gluten free menu that included Ruby Sippers cocktails, mushrooms stuffed with homemade Mexican chorizo, shrimp with horseradish remoulade, leek & goat cheese frittata, ginger bread cookies, and other mouthwatering fancy Hors d'oeuvres left the guests wondering if they were dining in a 5 star restaurant. Thank you again for accommodating to my food allergies concerns. Because of your professionalism and work ethic, you gave me peace of mind that everything was going to be perfect to include the home decor and setting-up the kitchen table with silver and white embellishments. Wow! It felt like a winter wonderland. I look forward to our next rendevu in the kitchen. Bests, "Girls Night Out Crew"

Had the best experience with Aneva! Not only is she friendly and personable, but she REALLY listens! I love sweets, but struggle to eat deserts because I keep a vegan diet. I mentioned it briefly to Aneva upon first meeting her and without even asking, she surprised me several times with the most decadent sweet treats I've ever tasted. I honestly couldn't believe that it was vegan because the fudge brownies and cookies she baked tasted better than anything I've ever bought from a bakery. One thing I've noticed that sets Aneva apart from any other chef, is her attention to detail and her creative zest. Her cookies were moist and chewy and yet crunchy all at once. I didn't even know that was possible! She makes delicious dishes that carry through her passion for blending flavors and textures that will bring about a nostalgic feeling while also transporting you through a modern experience. I can't recommend her enough! You will leave the experience of having her meals with a strong craving to experience it again and again!

Sally’s “It’s Just Good Food” catering company catered my husband’s company’s summer event. The food was fantastic! Items came already prepared with minimal setup needed. Everyone raved about how good everything looked and tasted. Sally was phenomenal with her timing and décor. Once the event ended, she took care of the entire cleanup as well. She made it easy for me and my husband to relax and enjoy the event.

I have not yet experienced the food, but I was very pleased with Dashawn's eagerness to obtain my business. Dashawn presented me with an a la carte vegan and vegetarian menu that was every helpful to me. He even went the extra mile to accommodate me with vegan and gluten free desserts. These healthy choices will be a welcomed surprise and compliment to my upcoming BBQ for my vegan and vegetarian guests. And I am sure all my guest will partake and enjoy the healthier selections. I'm looking forward to the event!

Absolutely impressed with the service provided by Classic Catering! I needed a catering company for a last minute event I hosted and Classic Catering was recommended by a colleague. I called and spoke with Sandy, who understood exactly what I was looking for and needed for my event. She was able to work out the details and arrangements for my party and was a pleasure to work with. I can definitely see myself using their service for future events.

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.
