I have had the wonderful experience of cooking classes with Zacki. I find her to be very organized, articulate and creative. Not only does she provide wonderful recipes, but her eye for presentation and detail is amazing! Zacki is very kind and personable and has many years of experience in the field of personal chef/catering. She truly cares about sharing her knowledge and passion for great food and entertaining! I have seen photos of her catering events and feel she has an incredible talent for setting the tone with her food and drink presentation. Her catering talents would make any event a special event!

I had a casual office work party at my house. I wanted to do burgers and brats, but didn't want to spend my time at the grill. Lamar came and brought everything needed for the party and manned the grill, so that I could entertain my guests. The food was great and the service was perfect. I will use Lamar again for my catering needs.

just wanted to thank you and everyone at A Taste Of Harlem Catering services for making my birthday such a special and memorable event. Shamyra have made this whole process so effortless and I appreciate how you worked with me on the cost and keeping it a beautiful event. From the very beginning, I felt very comfortable working with you and knew you had everything in control. In addition, I'm a perfectionist myself so it was great to be able to rely on you and your team and not have to worry about anything. It was more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined and I just wanted to thank you so much. We received so many complements on the food and I told everyone about A Taste of Harlem Catering and how amazing you and your team are. Thank you so much. If I ever have another event I will definitely rehire Shamyra !!!!!! 😊

Maggie was an incredible caterer to work with! I'm so glad she reached out to me. My husband and I are vegan, so it was important to us to find a caterer that could create tasty, plant-based food for our wedding. Maggie was able to craft a menu with dishes from around the world and we received a ton of compliments during dinner from our guests on the food. From grandparents, to fellow vegans, the food was a hit! She and her team exceeded my expectations and helped make our wedding a night to remember :) Thank you Chef Maggie!

After being recommended by a friend, I decided to use T.J. Ruffins to cater for my graduation party. They did a great job! Very reliable and great communication, which was great because my guest list kept growing. Everyone loved the food and kept asking where it was from. Definitely will use them again in the future!

Joe catered my husband's 50th birthday party. The food was amazing, and my friends are still talking about the beef tenderloin and duck wontons. From set up to clean up, the service was unbelievable.

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.
