Chef Tony outdid himself with our corporate picnic! He knows his business and excels! The food was outstanding and the service excellent! Everyone attending was delightedly pleased with the catering provided. I highly recommend Chef Tony and hope to work with him again on future events.

I honestly wish that we could give them 10 starts. From the START Shannon and her team were nothing but amazing. They were friendly, professional, and their food was incredible! During our wedding planning experience, Shannon not only acted as a our caterer, but she acted as a member of our family. She was always present to talk to, she was encouraging, she was kind, she was excited for us to get married and she made sure that we did not have to worry about A THING! She made sure that every little detail was done, and that if we had any questions, we could ask her ( even if it was not catering related). Shannon made sure that every bit of food was something that my wife and I would love, and she even remembered every little detail of my wife's picky eating! On the day of our wedding we did not have to worry about A THING! Why? Because Shannon and her team handled it. They made sure that our bridal party had snacks and things to munch on ( and drink) while guests were arriving and she made sure to serve my wife and I during the reception. Shannon and her team have become great friends of ours through this experience and weeks later she even ended up catering my sister in laws wedding because our family loved her food so much! THEY WILL NOT UPSET! HIRE THEM and you will be SO GLAD you did!

I have a lot to say about Chef Anton (Feast catering), in hopes of conveying my appreciation for all the work he and his team did and also to encourage you to hire him NOW! I reached out on Thumbtack in search of a wedding caterer. Chef Anton got back to me right away. He said he could honor our budget and he took the time to tell me about all the food he offers. Then Chef Anton invited us over for a tasting. He were sold right away. His professionalism, service, and of course the quality of the food blew us away. Next, Chef Anton agreed to come to our venue upon the event coordinator's request....didn't complain, didn't charge us for his time, just showed up ready to work. He toured the venue and had amazing ideas regarding where to set up, serve, etc. Then came the big day. Chef Anton was punctual as always and got right to work. The food was awesome as was the service. Chef Anton and his team did all the setting up, serving, and clean up. He had special plates for my wife and I so we didn't have to get up and serve ourselves! An important side note: my father in law made our cake, and Chef Anton ran back to his car to grab a knife so we could get it, then he went out of his way to serve cake to our guests. True professional. At the end of the experience, and in writing this review, I feel very emotional because Anton treated us like family throughout this process. Great food and great guy. Meet him in persona and listen to what he had to offer and he will take care of your event! He was the MVP of our wedding day. Chef Anton, thank you truly and please keep in touch.

Allison was a true pleasure to work with and an ultimate professional -- even more importantly, her appetizer creations for my cocktail event were deliciously devoured by my guests, each of whom asked for Allison's contact information. I should have kept her as "my secret" but Allison's skills with all-things-food is too special not to share. I will certainly use Allison again for my next catered event!

Jerry's Kitchen is a gem within the food truck world. Their menu is full of variety and I have never been disappointed by a dish! They have always been respectful about catering to dietary restrictions and food allergies. I have seen them at multiple food truck festivals and catering events and they have the fastest, most courteous service every time.

I have been using the services of Chef Tanya for 11 months now. She has been providing weekly dinners and some snacks twice a month for my children and I. I have 3 children which are very picky eaters and they LOVE the meals Chef Tanya prepares. In July I hosted a family reunion of 40 and I had Chef Tanya do all the food. What a spread- even homemade ice cream! Next month my brothers and I are giving our parents a "dinner for two" prepare by Chef Tanya as an anniversary gift. I know it will be fantastic. I have recommended Chef Tanya to my friends and co-workers.. Her food is so good.

I became acquainted with Ma'idah Catering Co. at a friend's wedding. The food was beautifully presented and the variety and tastes were awesome. So many people there were just chattering about the food! Since then, my family and others that I know have employed the Ma'idah Catering Co. for all of our affairs. We have the option of choosing our own menu from fresh goods (not canned or already processed), or to use a theme menu presented by Ma'idah. The results have been nothing short of awesome!

We used Tasty Table catering for a 2 day event in Norristown. We are from the Harrisburg area, so we had no idea what caterer to use. George went over and above to make our event a success. Customer service was A++++++++, his staff was kind, and very accommodating.. The food was excellent.. Highly recommend.

Bee&Jay Catering was recommended from a friend. I called them and set up an appointment for tasting for my Networking Event. The were very professional and the food was delicious. They are prompt with answering questions when needed. I was contacted the day before the event to make sure nothing else was needed. The day of the event Bee&Jay Catering was on time and setup a hour before it started. Everyone enjoyed the food and couldn't stop talking about their famous meatballs. I would definitely recommend Bee&Jay Catering to anyone that needs catering for a small or big event.

She catered my daughter's Outdoor Graduation Party. Her staff came early and went beyond the call of duty, setting up tables & chairs, grilling fantastic tasting food & constantly asking if I needed anything else. I give her company 5 stars. :-)

John Burwell (JB) created a magnificent Valentine's Day menu around my wife's "likes"--steak & peach moscato. He arrived, set-up, and created an outstanding 3-course meal. He arrived to a clean kitchen and when he left hours later, it looked as if he'd never been there. JB is a friendly, down-to-earth guy who provides an excellent upscale service. I tell everyone I know about him and am thinking of reasons to hire him again.

The whole experience was great. Latonya worked around my schedule and was answering my emails even at 11pm at night. I think the food presentation was outstanding and everything came out great and tasty! The guests were satisfied and I was as well. Only thing I can say was that the chicken tenders were a little dry but that's due to transferring and holding. Other then that, I will be very glad to have her cater my events again. :)

I want to start off by saying thank you to the chef and his wonderful team for everything they prepared for me and my husbands housewarming party! The chef was very reasonable with pricing and when it came to service him and his team went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our night. The food was out of this world our guest couldn’t stop talking about how amazing and delicious everything was. The hit of the night was the BLT sandwiches with their special sauce and the spicy deviled eggs. The Chef was very attentive and made sure he was able to give us everything we wanted the way we wanted it. How many people can Honestly say their caterer answered their call at 11pm?? I mean he really made sure he was available 24/7 ! We were able to actually relax and enjoy our party instead of worrying about guest and food and etc. The feeling was absolutely indescribable. The chefs passion and drive was visible and made our night much more perfect! I look forward to hiring him and his team for future events!

    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.
