Dani did a full-service catering brunch at my home, for more than 80 guests. Her prices were very competitive and her menu was creative, unique, so much more interesting than any of the other bids. The food was superb--everyone raved about every course. The service and clean-up great. Only small concern was delay in communication as we firmed up details, which felt last-minute to me. And the staff arrived late--only 45 minutes before the event was to begin, so we were scrambling and delayed in opening the buffet line. Even with that I would highly recommend Dani's Catering.

CH Professional Catering performed our catering and bar services for our son’s wedding on Sep 16, 2017. A +++ is the only grade I can think of for such a quality company and service provided. We chose CH Professional Catering to cater our event before even doing a tasting. When reading reviews we could see that CH Professional Catering was a quality company and had a huge menu with many options to choose from. The tasting done at our home by Jason and his wife was incredible. We knew we had made the right decision by the presentation and food quality at the tasting. We also decided to use the bar and beverage services provided through CH Professional Catering. As our timeline developed for the wedding day with the photographer’s timeline for pictures of the bride, groom and wedding party I could see the need for drinks earlier in the day. I requested the bar to be functional at 2:00 and they were operational by 1:45. We also opted for an appetizer with drink station at 3:30 after the ceremony and again in drizzle and rain it was ready for our guests. The dinner was schedule for 5:00 pm and was ready minutes before. It was prepared and cooked onsite for maximum freshness. CH Professional Caterings signature. Lizz also advised and coordinated the bar to save us money by serving wine by her staff and running a tab as opposed to pre-buying everything. The service provided was top notch and servers were professional and attended to all guests they were inside the tent or outside the tent after the meal. We ordered a large assortment of beer and wine and all were provided for our guests. It was so nice to not have to worry about our guests needs and wants and knowing they were taken care of. We received so many positive comments on the quality of service and food quality from our guests. We can’t say enough about CH Professional Catering and would encourage anyone considering their service to not let the opportunity pass as we wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again or refer friends and family to them for food and bar services.

Luzette Catering catered our outside wedding. Daniel was always punctual and returned my calls in a timely manner which was very important to us when planning a wedding. The food was great and the price was very reasonable. The serving staff was there the day of at a appropriate time to have everything set up and served. Often times caterers aggressively track down the bride or groom for payment right after serving and Daniel did not do that at all. He was very respectful of our time and was very professional the throughout the entire experience. The only complaint we had was the bar service. The bar seemed to be unorganized and the bartender was not friendly to put guest. However, when this was brought to Daniels attention he was receptive to the information and assured is that he would address this for any future events. Overall we were very satisfied with Luzette Catering and would use and recommend them for any event. June, 2014

I had Coty, and his team bartend my wedding in June. One of the biggest things during a wedding is to not have to worry about how vendors will perform. If you want peace of mind use Minnesota Bartending Services. I had my guest giving me compliments of the services the entire night. It is nice to know the guests you invited are enjoying their time. Minnesota Bartending helped me to pull have a fantastic night, would definitely recommend to anyone who is hosting a large event. Coty even had an entire area set up with a bar, and we asked them to move it last second, and they had everything set up before cocktail hour. Can't thank enough for the hard work!

Susan was a joy to work with for my event. She and her staff oversaw the food details from start to finish. Others at the event were impressed with the food and the level of service received. Because I was busy during my of the event, she even prepared a plate of food for me to eat when it worked best for me. Everything was perfect for me and I would hire S. Rochelle Artisan again!!

Nate catered a surprise 60th birthday party we threw for my mom and it could not have been better. The food was all delicious and the service was impeccable. It was a huge benefit knowing we had someone who really knew what they were doing so we could enjoy the party. He came out to the event space, was early, set everything up and took care of all the food so well, and was so friendly and professional with all the guests. 10/10 would definitely use his services again.

I contacted Culinary Partners after needing a last minute caterer for a large family event. I spoke to Gerald and he was very accommodating, especially given the time frame (we're talking barely 3 days here). He arrived on time to prepare the food and everything was cooked perfectly. From the steaks to the vegetables, we couldn't have asked for a better meal. Next time we need an event catered, we will be sure to contact Gerald again, hopefully with more notice, though!

We had an excellent experience with Danica & 612 catering. Delicious, hot, healthy meal for 100 people served as a buffet. Everyone loved the food. Great value too as Danica and her team managed set-up, monitored the buffet, and clean-up. We look forward to catering other lunches with 612 Catering.

Sue is an excellent chef and cook. When she caters an event she is professional and friendly. The pizza's we order for our garlic harvest crew are always excellent and careful attention is paid to ingredients (which I am pretty picky about). Sue is also adaptable. I know when I first knew her she sometimes used ingredients I was not very interested in but she has gleaned so much experience cooking at co-ops and local and organic food restaurants, that she knows how to cook with everything our local foodshed has to offer.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
