We recently planned a celebration for our 50th wedding anniversary in January 2016. It included an evening buffet meal for over 50 friends and family. Following an internet search on Thumbtack we chose Chef Tyler of Personal Chef to the Stars for our first private chef experience. We have a well equipped kitchen and wanted the enjoyment of watching the food being prepared in our own home versus having the meal catered. The food and service were fantastic - awesome hors d'oeuvres, delicious dinner buffet and a crowd stopping superb dessert. Chef Tyler delivered beyond our expectations - from the advanced planning to the super clean up and all our guests were impressed and delighted. We would recommend the personal chef experience with Chef Tyler to anyone.

Chef Julian was beyond my vocabulary to express how good he was. He arrived promptly on time, and began the dinner for a private couples meal immediately. He was professional and yet very social. We asked questions of how he got in the business and gave us his background. He is very passionate about what he does and the food speaks for itself.The courses came out in a good timely manner. The food was outstanding. I have eaten at some nice resturants, and had good food, but to see the quality of food he cooked out of my kitchen was unbelievable. This by far was the best meal I have had in a loooooong time. He boxed up any leftovers for us in our Tupperware, and cleaned after he was done. He wiped down all the counters, stove, washed all the dishes we used and even cleaned the floor where he worked. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. I have never done anything like this before, and after reading all the reviews on him, it was an easy decision to choose him and made the experience unforgettable. 2 thumbs up, all day long. Thank you

Yesterday we hosted a community pool luau with approximately 200-250 guest in 90 degree weather. Carolina Gourmet Catering did such an AMAZING job!! Everyone was raving about their food and service. Michelle Cook and her team were top notch. They were a pleasure to work with and were able to create a unique menu to suit our needs. I had several guests telling me that they wanted to book Carolina Gourmet Catering for their work parties. Aside from the great service and food, they also were extremely friendly and out going with our hungry guests and all the kids. We DEFINITELY want to book them for future events. Thanks so much Carolina Gourmet Catering ! - Debbie

Our decorator JoAnna posted on Thumbtack for us to find someone to do food for 30 people on Christmas Day. Dave Mallard delivered a magnificent meal of prime rib , and rosemary cranberry chicken with 6 sides and rolls. I polled the guests 10 min into the meal how they rated the food. The response was wonderful or thimbs up for those with mouths full😄. More telling is this house went silent for 35 mins and we ended up serving close to 40 people. Thank You Dave for doing this meal for our family Christmas.

If Thumbtack would allow 6 star ratings that is what I would give him. Devonte is very professional. His communication skills were excellent. Devonte was on time for his appointment that I scheduled him for. Devonte came to my place ready and prepared. Now lets get to the good part. Devonte meals were absolutely delicious. The appetizer was fresh. The entree (filet mignon) and sides were perfectly cooked and prepared. The dessert which is always my favorite was the best. The deconstructed apple pie was the perfect ending. Devonte plated presentation was on point. Devonte even educated me with some fine dining tips. Devonte was knowledgeable and will versed with his meal plans. Devonte will accommodate you by allowing you to customize your meal. I can't say enough about besides the consummate chef that he is he's also a pretty cool guy to chat with. He cooked for my guest and I, served our meals, supplied a complimentary bottle of wine and also had to go containers for our leftovers. Trust me you won't be able to eat all of the food Devonte makes in one sitting. I definitely without a doubt would hire Devonte for my next personal chef experience again.

Great overall experience, had a neighborhood get together with about 20 people, Top Hat provided bartending and catering services. Food was excellent, they provided all mixers, fruit, plates cups etc so took a lot off of our plate to prepare for the event. very reasonable prices. They went out of their way to make our guests feel comfortable and well cared for.

Oh my....the FOOD! Epps Bistro has provided my family with several weeks of food and Executive Chef, Terique Epps, cooked for a dinner party I hosted. Everyone raved about the food! He was extremely personable, professional and not only is he an excellent chef but he also cleaned up my kitchen (better than I would've) once he was done. I would recommend Epps Bistro to anyone!

Chef Graham and his staff provided us with a fantastic array of food for our backyard luau. From the very beginning to the very end, Chef Graham was wonderful to work with. He helped us design a menu that fit our theme, listened to our needs, worked within our budget and then went above and beyond by making an amazing display of fabulous food. In addition, he generously added a few extra dishes to our menu that he thought our guests would enjoy. The party was a huge success and our guests all raved about how wonderful the food was! In addition, we had Marcus as our bartender and all our guests loved him too! In fact, my husband was thrilled that every time he headed back to the bar, Marcus was ready for him with his choice of beverage...big kudos!!! Thank you Chef Graham and your wonderful staff for making our backyard luau such a memorable event!

Yevads events did my 40th birthday party. They provided my invitations, catering and decorate. I had an all white theme and they decorated my outdoor party with white pipping drapes with white linens and white chair covers. They accented the white decore with rhinestone Center pieces. The food was amazing! The staff was punctual and had the food set up and warm in time for my guest. My event was an evening of elegance.

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.
