Chef Cathy provided a perfect evening for us. She talked to me on the phone before the event and made sure that she understood everything that I wanted and she delivered. Her service was warm and attentive and all of the food was seasoned and presented perfectly. I also felt like I met a wonderful person. She came in prepared and set up with out any help from me and when she left the kitchen looked like she was never here. You will love her food and service. Thank you Cathy, you are the Best!!!!

We used Quinns for an office holiday party. The food and service was wonderful. The staff all enjoyed the food and asked who the caterer was. Several member took business cards to use for personal events.

Michael did freshly grilled tacos for my daughter's graduation party. I found him on Thumbtack when he responded to my request for vendors and I'm very glad I chose him to work with. Everything from the first communications to closing out at the end of the night went easily. He was exactly on schedule the evening of the party, showing up when he said he would and beginning the food service on time. Serving the tacos was fast so the line moved quickly. The tacos were very tasty and there were plenty of topping choices to go with the freshly grilled chicken or steak. I highly recommend Interactive Fare Concessions for any party where you want to serve freshly prepared food instead of the pre-prepared foods that sit for hours in chaffing dishes. In addition to the food tasting better coming right off the grill, we didn't have to order trays of food in advance so there wasn't mountains of leftovers like is often the case at graduation parties.

Nicole is as passionate about cooking good food as anyone could be about anything! Add that to her extensive training, and her outgoing personality, and it is the perfect recipe for a great experience! Everything from "Old-Country" Italian dishes to mouth-watering salmon plates. Appetizers, side dishes and decadent desserts; she does them all masterfully. Although I could go on for hours about how delicious the food is, It's JUST Food LLC has given me an education on cooking! I now have the confidence to try new things and try to "create" things. I no longer just stick to my comfort zone. I am free to explore! Sometimes it's a hit and other times, not so much! But as Nicole has taught me... It's JUST Food!!

As soon as Mr. Calderon walked into our home and started cooking up some samples to try, we were hooked! The food was awesome! So much so that he will be making just about everything for our son's upcoming graduation party this June (2017) Can't wait for the party!

If you like healthy, homemade food this is your caterer. If you have dietary needs don't be shy or feel awkward, these people seamlessly accommodate. Thinking outside the box is their specialty when it comes to flavor. Nothing mediocre about this food. Presentation is fabulous, eye-opening to say the least, almost too appealing to dive into but go for it! Great variety offered even for a week-long event. Definitely not their first rodeo. Excellent customer service. Articulate and professional. Chances are there will be a speed bump along the way but how a business rebounds is crucial to me and keeps my business.

Sally is my personal chef and she is amazing! She is extremely attentive to my specific needs (non-GMO, organic, no sugar, no gluten, etc...), professional and kind. My food has never tasted so good! Sally is creative, never misses the "little touches" like the condiments, special sauces (all homemade), and even presentation! She also cleans everything up nicely and puts it all away too. I can't say enough about Sally with Mixed Plate. I'm SO fortunate, grateful and thankful for her. Karyn K.

Jesse catered my rehearsal dinner and did an AMAZING job. The menu was original and everything tasted delicious. He even made dishes to accommodate my food allergies and made an awesome gluten free dessert. He was professional, efficient, clean, and made sure every single dish was perfect. I couldn't be happier with how the dinner turned out--and we received so many compliments from our guests. We are so happy we chose him to cater our rehearsal dinner!

      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.
