I am a procrastinator by nature so as usual my wife's birthday was fast approaching and I needed to figure out what gift I can give her at the last minute. After years of being together in my mind I felt that I was running out of creative gifts to give her until I was browsing online about what to give women who are 5 months pregnant for their birthday. Then it it hit me let me see if I can have a personal chef come to house and cook for the family. Upon looking online and searching through the vast number of chefs, Chef Serge Pambo Executive chef and owner of Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept caught my attention for a couple of reasons; he had quite a number of reviews and his price was reasonable. Additionally when I looked at his website Sergepambo.com his resume was complete with a number of experiences which assured me that we would have a quality experience and indeed we did. The first reason I was impressed was his quick response time, I wanted a chef to come on a Sunday and began looking two days prior. I also wanted to pay him prior to the experience but he insisted that we pay after we had our meal. Upon arrival he was punctual, friendly, and flexible (our kitchen was small and the ventilation was not the best also it was four adults including my pregnant wife and our 2 and a half year old son). Chef Pambo came prepared with his cooking equipment and as soon as he arrived began to work. This was my first experience having a chef so I was a little ignorant of the protocol and did not know if we should talk to him to keep him company while he cooked or leave him alone but he was more than willing to engage in conversation which created a relaxed environment. The first meal was an appetizer shrimp wrapped with bacon which was delicious and hit the spot for everyone especially my pregnant wife. The next meal comprised of creamy palinta, salmon seared on one side and oven baked on the other, along with tender and well seasoned beef, lightly saltaued asparagus, potato wedges, and we topped the meal off with bread pudding with ice cream over wafers. In between each meal Chef Pambo provided us with a layout of each course, history of the meal as well as his culinary training, and other interesting facts about his journey. After we were full of joy because due to the meal the chef even washed the dishes and cleaned the kitchen so it was as spotless or even more so than when he came to the home. I highly recommend Chef Pambo the quality of his food was outstanding, his professionalism is second to none, and his service versatility makes him uniquely qualified to be one of the best chefs among his peers. He has cooked all around the world, written books, can cater to any number of people or situations, and continues to travel the world to keep his skills sharp. He is a five star chef and I highly recommend you experience the culinary genuis of Chef Pambo executive chef of Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept.

They were great!  Excellent customer service from start to finish.  Mercedes helped me create my menu as I had no idea what I wanted.  They were very timely and responsive to all of my questions.  The day of my event, they arrived on time and Mercedes even stayed for a while to show my niece (who was serving for me) how to plate the food like a pro!  I mean it really looked and taste much like a 5 star gourmet meal!  I was super impressed!

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.

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.

Richard was a real pleasure to work with from the first phone call to the end of a very successful party. He was very helpful with his advice on our menu and with the guidance on the beverage purchases for a party our size (50,) He and Linda (the bartender) arrived on time and had the food laid out and the cooking stations and bar set up in plenty of time to start serving some early arriving guests. He circulated with the guests to make sure everyone was happy and had what they wanted and checked in with me throughout the evening to make sure all was going well from my perspective. Richard made crab cakes on the spot and they were a favorite. He also made delicious quesadillas on the spot, as well. His meatballs, chicken satay and stuffed mushrooms were all gobbled up. I overheard a couple of guests praising the peanut sauce and expressing interest in eating it by the spoonful:) All of the dips he provided were delicious as well. And the mini cheesecakes and cookies were also very good. All in all, Richard and Linda gave us a wonderful evening, without having to worry about a thing. To a person, I heard nothing but praise for the service and the food. I would hire Clever Catering again in a heartbeat:)

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.

International catering and Events really pulled out all the stops to make the wedding I attended an event for the ages. Customer satisfaction must be a priority because everything was spectacularly done. They added a personal touch to the event that made it extra special and all guests had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy!

DaShawn catered my sister's Sweet 16 party. He made 5 different items that were all delicious. The guests especially enjoyed the salmon cakes and the chicken club sandwiches with turkey bacon. Aside from how wonderfully the food tasted, DaShawn's professionalism was outstanding! DaShawn contacted me with a quote and a follow up phone call within 24 hours of my Thumbtack post. Next, DeShawn made himself available for a tasting and brought several items to my home for a nominal fee. Throughout the process, DaShawn was punctual and he even showed up early for my event. Finally, DeShawn accommodated all of my food allergies with ease. I highly recommend DaShawn Toppin, he was an excellent caterer.

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.

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.

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 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.
