Chris did a wonderful job, I can't say enough about how great the food was. I am already planning another party. It was so easy, pick out the menu, and Chris does the rest. The main course was duck breast, scallops, and filet mignon. The price was very reasonable considering the super high quality and freshness of the food. Also, my guests enjoyed interacting with him. I highly recommend Digest the Passion!!!

Service was excellent, no one ever asked to have a glass filled and the host did not have to lift a finger other than setting the table. Food was very good and right on time. Kitchen was spotless at the end of the night. I would use again and I would recommend to a friend.

The food was delicious, delivered on time and set up for us! Steve returned the next day and retrieved all of the chafing dishes and serving tools he brought. All we had to do it set up the tables and put away the few leftovers, which some of us enjoyed for lunch the next day. We had an in-house Christmas party for the office hosting 40 people for hot hors d'oeuvres and festive beverages. I gave Steve a budget and my recommendations for preferences and quantities (heavy eaters) and we loved the buffet he recommended. The price was more than fair. The BBQ meatballs vanished. Beef and chicken kabobs were tender and cooked to perfection and larger than I expected; the grilled wings needed no sauce although 2 flavors were provided on the side; we had a large caesar salad and teryaki beef and chicken caesar mini wraps that were also delicious. At the last minute I added the hot crab and artichoke dip. We will use him again and I have already shared his menu and food list with others. Its worth it to pay the service fee for the delivery and set up and the use of his professional equipment. However, I would not hesitate to use him for a home party where you might have your own serving pieces and just need some great food.

Kurt was amazing! Very professional, and a very nice guy. Kurt was very informative on his process and ideals. And the food was amazing. The food was all natural and extremely delicious. He even left a generous amount of left overs. I would recommend Kurt to anyone seeking a personal chef.

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!!

    We've used Roberts BBQ for several years both as a vendor at our annual Expo and also as the caterer for our private sponsor-only area. We couldn't be more pleased with both the product and the service.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      How much should catering cost for a wedding?

      The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

      • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
      • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
      • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
      • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
