My husband and I hosted a holiday open house for approximately 50 people. Luckily I knew well in advance that I was over my head and began to research caterers. I found Christine with Pangea Full Service Catering on Thumbtack. Our open house was a great success due, in large part, to Christine. She worked with me on a menu and had great food ideas. She also stayed within my budget. I felt we got a lot of food and excellent service for the price we paid. She came early to set up and stayed after to clean up. She was professional and delightful! A great combination. We had MANY guests comment on how delicious the food was and will definitely have her back next time we host an event. Her food and her service exceeded our expectations.

Jess was fabulous- easy to work with and accommodated people needing to be gluten free and dairy free. The food was absolutely delicious— I think it is some of the sauces she puts on that create great flavors that pop in your mouth. We were so full I just had to put chocolates out for dessert as we couldn’t eat another bite. All said it was one of the best parties ever. I would definitely hire Jess again! Thanks Jess!

HIRE THIS WOMAN!! You won't be sorry! I needed a caterer who could present a Gluten-free, Mediterranean buffet for my annual Women's Celebration. WOW!! Roxanne met me at my home to discuss the menu and to see the area available to her so she could plan accordingly. On August 20th, she arrived ready to work, with everything she needed to set up the most beautiful, delicious buffet my friends had ever seen. Oh, the food was marvelous!! She and her assistant even took the time to come out with small platters, and offer my guests appetizers right where they sat! It made everyone feel like a queen. I will be hiring her again for next year's event!! FABULOUS!!

I have had Steve take care of over 3 events for our church. Very helpful when you are not sure what you want. He is super at getting everything you need, like gluten free and has a great variety in food. Amazing salads and everything is so fresh! Even fresh made bread for the sandwiches we had. Hard to pick a favorite item but I think the chicken dinner was mine.

I must say Taste Haiti is probably the best food I've had in Minneapolis. I hired Taste Haiti last month for my anniversary and the food was better than I expected. I had the pleasure of doing a free tasting with Jasmine and her fiance Simon before I decided to book them, and when I tell you it was a tease it truly was. I love their island flavors, but at the same time they were also able to pull off a few american side dishes I wanted. They were very professional and kept me in my budget, I definitely recommend their services. I will be calling them for my next event for sure.

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.
