We booked Michael Jay for our October 1st wedding earlier this year (March-ish) and he was amazing every step of the way. He was easily reachable by all communications and made the planning process stress free. Not only did he cook for us but he also helped supply us with party insurance, tables, linens, chairs, etc. His staff also helped my parents set up for the wedding. We had a venue that did not have a kitchen and most other caterers were going to cook off site and bring our food in hot boxes. Michael brought everything he needed to cook on site for us (stoves, grills, etc) so everything was fresh! Everyone loved our taco bar, slider bar, and Asian noodle bar. I would recommend Michael to anyone :)

Our experience with Oceanique was flawless. The food was fresh and hot on arrival and enjoyed by all. Favorite dishes were the vegetarian zucchini bake and banana pudding. We will use them again and encourage everyone to do the same. Thanks, Darlene!

Angelique was incredible to work with! She and her staff catered our 200-person outdoor wedding reception excellently. The food was DELICIOUS and the service was more than we hoped for. Prior to the wedding, every time we met with Angelique to work out the details, she was fun, pleasant, and effective to work with. I did not have to stress about the food at all because I knew it would be more than taken care of in her capable hands. I will be recommending Sooo Good Catered Creations to any of my friends and family who are getting married or need catering because the food, service, and price is more than a deal. I would hire her again, hands down!

I hired Cathy to cook for my mother's 60th birthday dinner party. Beforehand we spoke several times about the menu and plan for the evening. Everything was better than expected! We had a plated dinner service for 13 women; her food was delicious and her service was excellent. She went above and beyond any expectations I had for the evening. She made an additional appetizer that was not expected which worked out perfectly because I had one individual who was not able to eat the seafood appetizer I chose. Cathy also had a server with her to help execute the night, both of whom were professional and efficient; filling the ice bucket, refilling waters, clearing plates, washing dishes etc., all things that I expected to have to do myself. Cathy was even thoughtful enough to purchase my mother a birthday gift! Our night was lovely thanks to her and all of her hard work and expertise. I would absolutely recommend and use her again for future events!

Corporate Express Catering provided wonderful food for my party of 100+ people. KIm made delicious appetizers! I ordered the largest platters of the Fresh Fruit, the Middle Eastern Plate (with excellent fresh hummus) as well as the Cheese and Cracker platter. I barely got any myself! They were a big hit. And then we had Kim's wonderful dinners! Vegetarian Lasagna, 3 Cheese Tortellini and vegetables (beautiful as well as delicious), and best of all....Beef Tips with Mushroom Marsala over Wild Rice!! Just from the description of it, I ordered extra. And I'm so glad I did!! It was definitely the the best of all. As I was dashing back and forth being hostess, I actually had people stop me and complement the beef dish!! I was extremely happy with Kim's catering. Most important to me, was the ease of working with Kim Riley. We spoke thru Thumtack, and soon spoke over the phone multiple times and emailed frequently. I felt that she really cared about my event and that she really wanted me to be successful. I enjoyed talking and working with Kim. She was always pleasant, cheerful and very helpful. I made many changes and adjustments and had lots of questions (I've never had such a large party), and Kim was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and very helpful. I was also happy with her suggestion for coffee since the party would last well past dinner. I was so grateful! I don't drink coffee and I was so busy concentrating on food, I forgot that others do!!! Kim also arrived right on time the night of the party and was helpful setting everything up and she showed us the oven settings to use, etc. She was very kind, cheerful and helpful getting us set up (I was frantic when people started arriving an hour early!! Her presence and encouragement helped me calm down). I loved Corporate Express Catering, delicious appetizers and wonderful dinners, all at very reasonable prices.I highly recommend them!!

Chef Jeff was very professional. He worked with us to develop a menu within our budget that was spectacular. We were very pleased that he is able to prepare a large variety of food for everyone to enjoy. There are vegetarians in the family and the meal that we served at our wedding had something for everyone. We were told by several guest that they had never had such good food at a wedding. Just as the name says, Over The Top Catering is over the top!

Nicole cooks meals for my family weekly. Aside from the amazing flavors and variety of foods she cooks, her service is excellent in that she is very attentive to our nutrition requirements, on follow up and feedback. Nicole will cook whatever it is you desire with passion and love. She is a joy to have around, and her professionalism is top notch. My family looks forward to our meals each week!

The value we received was incredible. What we received for what we paid was better than reasonable. The staff person was capable and courteous and arrived early and tended to all our needs. Ours being a memorial service, I was unable to assist in any way, but there was no need because everything was handled smoothly. The food was not your traditional funeral luncheon fare (my choice) and was delicious. I would definitely hire this caterer again. I would also use Thumbtack again because I liked how quickly the interested caterers responded. It was difficult choosing just one but I'm happy with the outcome.

Ben was easy and creative to work with. For our 20th Anniversary party, we wanted food that reflects our family cultures and our tastes. Ben had great suggestions for delicious food that was exactly right and our guests loved the meal and desserts. Ben even made some really special desserts. Our party numbers fluctuated so was a lot of food left over, and we got to keep it. He was reasonably priced and super competent. We were so lucky to find him.

    Best fried chicken I've had in ages. Nice and crispy on the outside while moist and well-seasoned on the inside. I don't eat fried chicken much, but when I get the craving I go straight to Social Butterfly Catering. Also be sure to check out the pastelillos, particularly if you've never had them before. They taste like pure heaven and you'll want to thank me afterwards!

    Exceptional meal from a great team. We had asked Pica to take care of a recent office party we had. We asked for steak, chicken, and vegetarian tacos. Sure enough Pica Mexican Catering delivered just that. They even gave us tamales as they had made extra that day. The salsa was excellent and so was the rest of the dishes. Pica Mexican Catering is truly a Birmingham, MI Catering gem.

    I hired Lester / Demitart Gourmet to cater our New Year's Eve party -- everything was wonderful!! Lester is a pleasure to work with and the food was delicious! We did a Caribbean themed menu but he can do most other cuisines as well. Prices are very reasonable as well, and we had a ton of leftovers! I would highly recommend Lester!!

    Joseph McKnight was patient, kind and professional. He asked my preference of food for the occasion. I did not have clarity about the appetizers and entrees I wanted. He came back with a well thought out menu. He and Chef Hardy did a fantastic job within a short time frame, despite another commitment on the same day. The job was in White Plains, NY. I arrived at 4:15 as I had indicated. He and his team had been waiting since 4:00; on time which was very important. It was a wonderful experience. The food was very tasty. Thumbs up to the team of Joseph McKnight and Chef Max Hardy. Delmas..NY, NY

    Greg and the Café Muse team have been catering for my husband and me for years...everything from 150 person blowout galas complete with bartenders and 7 servers to intimate Christmas dinners for our family. Greg's creative cuisine and the Café Muse team's amazing service combine for a unique experience. If you haven't tried Greg's bread pudding, you are in for a treat. Actually, I am craving a serving as I write this review!! Love these folks and you will too!!!

    I've been lucky enough to run into Delectabowl at the Berkley Parade for Dream Cruise, at Keuhenn Brewery and also at Royal Oak farmers market. My fav is the Fiesta bowl. The green goddess dressing is ridiculous! I've also tried the pulled pork and the Caprese sandwich. Unlike many food trucks, this food feels like someone has preparing it for hours. (Which they have), Is healthy, and the staff is always friendly. One of the best in Metro Detroit.

    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.
