Helen was such a delight in catering a lunch for my bridal party as we were getting ready for my big day. She was a great communicator and the food she provided was top-notch. Everyone loved everything and kept raving about how beautifully Helen had delivered it. Thank you so much!

The only thing missing was gravy, but the food was exceptional. She even through in an extra cherry pie. I am so glad we catered our dinner. We already booked next Thanksgiving. We do several dinners inthe middle of the year too though.

Steve worked hard to deliver excellent food and service to our guests. We had a buffet style dinner for our wedding and all of the food was amazing. Our guests all compliment at least one of the sides and entrees, talking about how great they were.

Meats and treats did an amazing job catering our wedding reception!! They brought everything we needed. They came and set up all of the food for us. Food was absolutely amazing!! Cupcakes were phenomenal. Brisket and pork were cooked to perfection. I highly recommend the Apple slaw as well! All in all I could not have picked a better company to do business with. Absolutely no disappointments in the process of booking or food.

I called Say Goodnight Gracie Catering because I needed a caterer for a corporate event I was hosting for 200+. After getting bids from several companies, I spoke to Roxanne Harran, the owner, and I knew this was the right company for me. Aside from being professional, friendly and willing to work within my budget, she was extremely flexible with last minute menu changes and changing guest lists. All of those qualities, along with extremely great food (which they have!) are things that I would expect from a good caterer. What I didn't expect, however, was the way that Roxanne and her dedicated staff went above and beyond when we had a problem with our venue. We found ourselves in need of a last minute (literally, last minute) change of venue and within 1/2 hour Roxanne had booked and checked into a new venue and they were setting it up on the fly! I've never seen a staff work so quickly and with such enthusiasm to make the best of what should have been a bad situation. Our event was a great success and I wouldn't consider using any other caterer in Las Vegas. They were the best right down to the smallest detail and I don't think we could have done it without them. You'd be foolish to use anyone else! Thanks Say Goodnight Gracie Catering...can't wait to see you for our event next year.

I have known Jeffrey Mauro for almost 20 years. During that time he has provided many in meals in our home. We have had multi course dinners, casual dinners and drop off for parties with up to 20 guests and Chef Jeffrey has always exceeded my expectations. HIs food is always fresh, beautiful, impeccably cooked and presented. He has the ability to improvise if need be to accommodate dietary restrictions or an extreme dislike. In addition to his skill at providing an wonderful meal, he interacts seamlessly with the guests making for a very personal event. I always come away with a few tips I will use in the kitchen and happy guests all around.

About

I am Lori Franklin, an accomplished chef with a great sense of humor and sunny disposition who is looking for clients with similar interests and attitudes with whom to make myself a valuable and trustworthy addition. Firstly, I bring with me an ability to prepare virtually any cuisine. Cooking has always been my first joy in life. Chefs play a vital role in preparing a variety of delicious dishes, soups, salads, snacks, side dishes and desserts with quality and health embedded in each dish. There are various roles and responsibilities assigned to food service staff. Among this, chefs and cooks take the responsibility of making a variety dishes. Chefs also take the responsibility of maintaining inventory and thereby, take the task of ordering food materials and any items needed for cooking. Whatever may be the roles and responsibilities, my primary aim as a chef is to prepare and present each dish, making sure it is appealing, delicious and also nutritious. Over my career, I have consistently been successful in building and maintaining client relationships, effective time management and exceptional customer service. My epicurean delights are created with a true passion for the total effect, both in taste and visual presentation. The proof is, indeed in the pudding or the pie, mousse or flan -- all the time communicating through my meals. I feel a great chef must possess attributes, namely good sense of taste and smell for food, creativity to bring out new dishes, efficient management skills to keep work organized, as well as good communication skills. My work is my enjoyment!

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
