Dani recently catered a pre-Thanksgiving lunch for our small business. She was a delight to work with and very accommodating to requests. The only mishap we came across was that she had written down the delivery time wrong. Luckily the food was prepared, so once I called to alert her, the food was here within the hour. Everyone raved about how delicious the food was - we had plenty of leftovers! Thanks, Dani!

This chef undersells himself. Not only is good food delicious, but he should charge more for it. He catered our wedding in a small kitchen in a barn, plated everything, walked the food up a flight of steps to assist the servers, and it still looked and tasted great.

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

Steve was the perfect caterer for our wedding. He went above and beyond to make our day special. Admittingly, Steve was more detailed and prepared than our wedding planner and everyone else combined...his experience really shined through and put us at ease. We expected 425-450 for our guest list, and with just 2 weeks to go, started to panic as our list grew to over 600. Steve simply remained calm through the whole thing...a phone call or two and he said everything was alright and we'd get through it. I was about to be a basket case, yet his calm reassured me. The best of it was, before anyone else was served, Steve personally served us first...along with a complimentary bottle of wine he had picked out especially for our meal. He stopped for a second to congratulate us, allow for a few extra pictures, and to make sure we...the bride and groom...were totally taken care of before moving onto our guests. Steve made our day special in so many ways. Something my mother said afterwards that sums up Steve pretty well was, "He's an old fashioned gentleman. His handshake is his bond, and his word is gold. He gets his reputation the old way...he earns it.". I highly recommend Steve to anyone for any catering need.

I was so lucky to find Debbie to cater at my wedding. She stood out right away. I wanted elevated farm to table food experience at my wedding, but was not sure how to make it happen. Debbie was able to guide me until we came up with the perfect menu that was delicious and possible to execute despite some limitations of the kitchen at my venue. I had so many compliments about the food even from some of the pickiest guests. Both cocktail hour food and dinner were amazing. The waiting staff was extremely professional and seamless, they really knew how to blend in. I am also extremely grateful for the amount of preparation and organization she put in before our big day to make sure everything went smoothly!!!

Chef Stiles was absolutely great. This was our first experience bringing in a personal chef for an event. Chef Stiles worked with me on the process and helped me get things set up. He worked quietly in the background and gave such a great presentation of the food. I hired him for my wife's birthday party. It was so great to have a healthy gourmet meal that everyone could enjoy.

      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.

      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.
