Tony Lawrence prepared an amazing array of Asian and other global dishes for my 80th birthday party in our home on September 19, 2014. We had 18 guests and they all loved Tony and his great staff. We have received nothing but compliments from our guests for a great party with delicious food and wine. No one left hungry and my family got to enjoy all the left overs. Tony was both efficient and flexible in the planning and preparation , with lots of fun and creative ideas. Of all the recommended chefs we spoke to , Tony was the only one who made a site visit before we even committed to use his services. He then made another visit closer to the date. Menu was impressive and we will definitely use Tony for our future catering needs.

We had two parties in one weekend and Anton made them awesome! First, we had a surprise birthday party for my sister-in-law. Anton did a personal chef dinner party for 14 family members at her home. It was FABULOUS! Anton made everything easy and the food was amazing! Appetizers, steak and lobster....He brought a server and helper and everything was handled beautifully including cleanup! We did nothing except enjoy! The second party was for my mother-in-law's 95th birthday celebration. He catered this event personally delivering his homemade and best Italian food I have ever had! I would recommend Anton and Feast Catering for any event you have! Hint: be sure you get the shrimp shooters and crab balls!

My experience with A Taste of Paradise Catering was 100% positive. Linda was so easy to work with as she helped me think through all the menu selections for my party. My guests raved about the food, which was excellent. I can not think of a single thing that could have been improved upon. I will definitely be calling Linda again!

I have known Alison for 23 years. Allison has catered many events for me from baby showers to Super Bowl parties she hits the mark every time! The food looks amazing and taste even better. Allison has the innate ability to go into someone's kitchen and move around it as if it were her own. She is a master in the kitchen with a heart of gold. Allison uses the same care and love when cooking for your family or friends that she does her own. Cooking is her passion and it shows whether she's in her home or yours. I believe her sparkling personality and incredible Talent will make your occasion truly special. If she has sent you a quote do yourself a favor and reach out to her, you will not be disappointed.

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.

Chef Jay of F.E.A.S.T. Catering did my formal May wedding at University of the Arts. I was worried that Chef Jay would not handle the volume (guest list: 130), but his team nailed it. The event flowed flawlessly and the food just kept coming. Everything was delicious and the tables and decor were just as we had discussed. I would highly recommend this company for any event.

Tanya prepared and presented a simply outstanding dinner for four at our hotel in Ocean City New Jersey last night. She brought all food, cooking equipment, created a centerpiece for the table, prepared the 4 course meal as we enjoyed drinks. Combined with Linda serving, this was just perfect! The food was gourmet and very meticulously prepared and presented. We all loved it and look forward to doing this again.

Vince and The Little Sicilian did a great job catering my son's birthday party. The food was absolutely delicious.

I give two thumbs up for Enjoi Catering! I made a last minute decision to throw an Anniversary Party For My In-laws and Enjoi Catering came through for me and I was able to concentrate on my guest list and decorations. I gave them my request and They handled everything else. I was even able to sample my menu. My Menu consisted of Lamb Chops, Asparagus, Lobster Maccaroni, Crab Cakes and Shrimp Salad. Everything was delicious. With the Holidays coming up I'll definitely be in touch with Enjoi Catering. 👍👍

I highly recommend Couch Tomato catering for your next event. They provide a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta, dessert and more. Chris is always very helpful with taking special dietary requests for my vegan and gluten free customers (I am a sales rep for a Pharmaceutical company). My team especially enjoys the tortellini, tomato basil soup, and brownies. They even take care of setup and use place cards to describe each menu item! Two thumbs up.

        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.

        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.

        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 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.
