Hello, I just want to mention that this is the first time I write a review. I decided to write this one because truly Charley is an outstanding chef who truly made our night memorable. There are no words to describe how great the food was and the service Charley provided. I have no doubt in my mind that I will be connecting with him again in the near future for other events. So, thank you Charley, we truly appreciated it.

We had a party for my wife's birthday at the house for 40 people and could not have been more pleased with Adolfo Silverio and Manjar Catering. Both the food and the service were first class. Adolfo worked with us on the menu and layout for the party and everything went off without a hitch. People were raving about the food from the duck crepes to the quesadillas and the service including set-up, passing service, and clean-up were executed flawlessly. T.G. - Stamford

We loved the services and food catered by Kulinary Kings. They catered food for our 125 guest consisting of a variety of backyard BBQ foods. Our guest loved the roasted corn, the salmon pasta salad and the macaroni and cheese and chicken and beef skewers to name a few. Even more than the food, the service was great- we also requested servers and a bar tender and I must say all were on point and attentive to our guest. I would recommend This cater and will definitely use him again!

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

Harvest Speciality Catering did an amazing job at our family and friends BBQ on 5/28/17. Everyone loved the delicious food, service, and excitement of having a food truck come to our driveway. The professionalism of Jason and his assistant was truly remarkable. I highly recommend Harvest and can't wait to hire them again for another fun event!

I have had the great pleasure of being a customer and guest on several occasions of Cornbread26's catering services. Each time I was blown away by their outstanding customer service, food quality and flavor, and beautiful execution of the event's decor. Claude and Craig work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that their clients don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying the experience and the food.

As the marketing coordinator for my firm, it's my job to plan and facilitate events. I recently moved back to NYC and don't have many go-to's as far as vendors go. I asked around and several friends suggested rsvp based on their own experiences. I'm certainly glad I decided to use them for our new office launch! The entire process was flawless (the initial proposal, a few minor changes, the event itself, payment and follow-up) and the food we received for our event was delicious! Since it was a spring/rooftop event, we went with mini sliders, skewers, homemade potato chips, etc. Renee, our manager, went beyond her duties to help me set up for the event (helping move our furniture, etc) aside from the food and she was extremely friendly (even though it was 85 degrees and super humid, which could make anyone cranky!)

We couldn’t decide whether a food truck or catering would be best for our wedding; I discussed multiple possibilities over the phone and appreciated most his willingness to work with our unique needs and tight space (no kitchen on premises!). Would definitely recommend for local events.

It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!

We had an upcoming birthday party and decided to have it catered. From the moment we asked for a catering service, Christie Pedone responded very professionally and promptly. She was always ready to answer questions and make suggestions for our upcoming party. She was very helpful in choosing the menu. She was also a great help with wine suggestions and we decided to use her bartenders as well. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed her lemonade bar. Several guests were interested in using her catering service for their upcoming parties. We can only give her our best recommendations and will definitely use her catering service again Regards Birgitte and Steve

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
