Zacki Murphy and her team surpassed my highest expectations. We had a party of 50+ from all corners of the world & 8 families. Zacki listened and delivered the perfect combination of exquisite finger food to make this party a roaring success. From open face salmon sandwiches, to mini crab cakes, shrimp, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, not to mention her incredible juleps, this party had it all for a very special group of world travelers. I won't ever look to another firm for my catering needs in the Durham area. The largest error to be made is to not contract with Zacki for your unique event.

An Event To Remember made my husbands surprise birthday party a total success. The food was hot, delicious, ready to eat, and plenty of it. Terri was a complete professional. She went above and beyond when it came to the food. Everything was way past scrumptious. If and when I plan another party I will call on her to cater it. Complete satisfaction is what I felt.

My experience with Jamaica Coast catering was excellent. She catered a party of mine. The chef, Marcia, makes your experience personal, she makes sure that you get exactly what you want and caters everything to you. The food was phenomenal, and the professionalism was outstanding. Every dish she made for me had an unique taste, but was exquisite. The staff was very polite and professional as well. I would definitely be calling her for my future events!

Benny (and the whole I Am Catering crew) were so fabulous! When I got engaged, one of the people I was most worried about finding was a good caterer. After going to multiple places, my now husband and I chose Benny to cater our event. EVERYONE who came to our wedding commented on how delicious the food was - they still do, even though our wedding was a month ago. Benny was really accessible the whole time, and everyone who worked with him was amazing! One thing I really appreciated about Benny was the fact that he let us shape our own menu (unlike other places where they moreso dictate what you will have), but made suggestions if my husband and I were stuck on a good pairing for a dish. I am most definitely planning on using Benny again in the future and I have already suggested him to people - in fact people at the wedding were asking me for his contact information. I can assure you that with him as your caterer the food will be delicious, the drinks at the bar will be fabulous, and you won't have to worry about catering issues at all the day of your event!!

Di'lishi catered our family fun day for our company. They arrived early for the event and stayed past the original scheduled time to be certain everyone was served. The yogurt was so good and they brought a huge amount of topping choices! We recommend di'lishi and will be using them again.

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

From the time that I contacted Reto's to the actual catering event, everything was great! Our company had an employee outing and we have many different eating types: vegans, vegetarians, and gluten-free. So Reto's recommended to us the Fajita Buffet. It was wonderful!!! Not only did it cover all of the different types of eating habits, but there was plenty of food for all with leftovers to take home. I highly recommend them!!! Thank you Reto's for a wonderful job! We will be contacting you again.....

Taste catering catered my daughter's 13th birthday party. She was professional, on time and most importantly the food she cooked was amazing. My daughter is a vegetarian and she wanted a movie themed party. Taste catering met her wants from the decorations all the way to the tuxedo dressed gourmet veggie dogs and assortment of chocolate drizzled popcorn. All the teens were satisfied and happy. I will definitely use Taste Catering again and highly recommend it to all my friends.

I'm a great chef, I have a great background of southern style cooking as well as party planning. Food for the soul.

About

My service stands out from any other food and drink host/chef because cooking has all I have done my whole life; making everything from scratch and homemade. I never use a recipe and everything comes from the heart as well as based on what the customer needs and desires. Eating and drinking is about being happy and tasting deliciousness; the palette needs to be properly tended too or people believe that fast food and sugar is a way of life. I have never had anyone disappointed with anything I do or make; I am opening my own five star restaurant within the next year and a half and would be beyond honored to help you with whatever it is that you may need when it comes to food and drinks. Just ask me a question and I am here for you.

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.
