Carmen and her team are some of the hardest working people I have had the honor to see in action. We chose An Affair to Remember to cater our daughter's wedding in Morganton because she is down-to-earth and seemed very service-oriented. If there is something we need at weddings is service. Carmen's team exceeded our expectations. For the sake of simplicity I asked Carmen to prepare a buffet. Everyone said the food was delicious. As the mother of the bride I had no appetite (except for champagne). All the food was devoured. I feel I did not take advantage Carmen's full abilities by not asking for passed appetizers or food stations. She arrived with her team around noon and stayed until 11pm to wash all our rented dishes and clean up. By the time she left our kitchen was spotless. Bravo, Carmen. The only thing I would add for someone who has never had a caterer: buy your own ice. It was an oversight on my part and assumed caterers brought it. Thankfully I had a willing guest happy to run out for it. Another thing: We had a cheesecake wedding cake and I was worried about cutting it. Carmen stepped in and said she would cut it and set out the coffee service at the same time. She helped make our wedding wonderful.

This was a Celebration of Life reception in honor of my Dad. The event was held at a community center with a full kitchen and my Mom and I decided that a Personal Chef would be more Special than a normal caterer. And more special it was, as Chef Tyler and his team presented an amazing spread that everyone loved. A dozen tidbits and finger foods that took care of teenagers, younger kids, adults of all ages and every food need from Gluten Free to Nut Free. Simple items like Mini Tortilla Pizzas and Baked Chicken Nuggets combined with more sophisticated dishes like Tuna Tartare and Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus received raves from all. The staff handled the initial surge really well and kept plenty of food refreshed for the full three hours. Only an hour to set up and prepare and only an hour to clean-up was no problem for the well- organized crew. Chef Tyler took the time to clearly understand our needs and wishes, and was extremely accommodating and flexible along the way. All in all a superb performance and I would highly recommend Chef Tyler for any similar event.

Michelle and her team at Carolina Gourmet Catering were phenomenal! They catered our Thanksgiving Luncheon at Campbell Law School this year and everyone was pleasantly surprised to have a different caterer. The food was superb, their service was excellent, and we would not hesitate to use them again in the future. Highly recommended!

A taste of soul restaurant was great service for me and my husband on our wedding day. The food was excellent and all of our guests gave us good feedback about the food. The owner Latonya was very perfessional and she was a blessing of catering services for our special day. I will use this catering service again, also I will recommend her to others. Thanks for providing great service on our special day.

Right from the start Sue was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to my questions as I was deciding on who to cater my daughter's wedding. Her confidence and accommodating manner won me over and I decided to go with Roosterdoodles for the big day. The selections to choose from for my menu were incredible. There was so much to choose from. I was able to choose just the perfect mix of food for the guests we were having. She made a trip to Clifton Park to meet me, see the venue,and offereed suggestions as to the table set up, etc. AS we neared the day, she responded with confirmations and asked if there was anything else she could help me with, like the cake and favors. I described the cake I was looking for and she said she could do anything. I decided to go with her for it, so she did everything. IShe offered some suggestions I did not want and I was very specific about what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, she arrived with a small crew and delivered. She called to let me know exactly when she would be arriving and was on time. She and her crew worked the whole event, tending to the buffet and preparing the dessert table and clearing the buffet food. The presentation was gorgeous for everything, very classy. The mediterranean platter was unbelievable. The beef brisket was so tender, not tough like you often get with large quantities. The chicken was also incredibly tender and juicy, just perfect. The flavors of her sauces were mouth watering and obviously home made. The food was delicious. Everyone at my table all ask who catered. THey said it was the best wedding food they ever had. One guest said he rarely saw the quality of food that we had and he is global traveler by trade. Later that day and even the next two days, as I ran into friends and family, everyone commented on how amazing the food was. Some attended a wedding at a very popular country club in the area and they all agreed that my wedding was superior, both in the event itself and in the food. Susan's price was very reasonable, the service was excellent, and the food was out of this world. The cake was something like I had seen on pinterest. It was exactly what I wanted, even better! I will definately use Susan again. I can't wait to taste her other dishes. I may even make a trip to Cairo to visit her cafe. I know it would be worth the trip. I highly recommend Roosterdoodles for your event. You won't regret it!

Jessica is a phenomenal chef who clearly has a passion to please others through her savory treats. I attended two of her classes, and each time came home with a new repertoire of recipes. She is entertaining and keeps it real. I replicated her butternut squash recipe for a tough crowd last Thanksgiving, and the compliments kept coming in! Next up: I am looking forward to taking her class on how to cook with a salt block... with good friends and wine, of course. Thanks for building my culinary confidence, Jessica!

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.

I recently hired Taste of Heaven Catering for my event this past weekend. My interaction with him from the beginning was great. He was very responsive and provided me everything I needed in a timely manner. I was able to do a small tasting prior to actually hiring him and I was impressed with the food. All of my guests raved about the food, it was very very good, was delivered as I requested with good presentation. Unfortunately the evening was so busy for me I was unable to take any pictures for this review, but trust me it was all good, I have some picky sister friends :) I will use him again in the future.

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!!

I had a good experience working with you, and my guests enjoyed the meal and interacting with you. You were very responsive in working with me to develop the menu, and were very punctual. I would use you again and can recommend you to others. On the constructive criticism front, I would suggest providing a little more detail about the menu items, and providing early confirmation on the event date that things are on track, etc. I don't use catering services often, so I don't know what the typical practices are. However, in my business life, I am accustomed to receiving (and giving) such specifics and confirmations so that my clients don't have to make assumptions or otherwise wonder where things stand. That said, I want to reiterate that I had a good experience, and I thank you for your service.

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.
