Helen was professional and very pleasant! She stayed our entire reception to ensure that everyone was satisfied. I received compliments from several people about how delicious the food was. I will use Helen again for any catering services and recommend her to my friends and family. In addition to providing great food, Helen spent a lot of time talking to me about what I wanted, recommending food choices based on my needs, and double checking that we were in agreement before our event. Thank you Helen for your part in making my wedding reception a great memory!!!

Laura makes it so easy! We should have done this before. It was $55 for 4 great meals; ding dong, and there is your food. We picked from her weekly menu, rather than go full custom.

Well, it has been two weeks since Sin City Smokers catered our wedding and I am still getting calls and messages from people just raving about how good the caterers and the food was!!! I would just say " SIMPLY FANTASTIC!!" Steve and his crew put on a full spread just the way we ordered it and were very friendly, enjoyed the celebration with us, and just delivered an awesome experience!! I highly recommend them and would definitely hire them again. Excellent food, wonderful and friendly people, reasonable prices. You can't go wrong with Sin City Smokers!! Spread the word and get them for your party. You won't be disappointed! Wayne and Melissa Uhden

I am the MOH for my best friend’s upcoming wedding and hosted a bachelorette weekend with a group of friends. We rented a vacation home and wanted something to make the experience even more unique. I explained all of that to Chef Pierre, discussed my budget, and gave him an overview of the group of ladies. He used all the information I provided to set an amazing weekend meal line-up for us. We got to pick from customized menus beforehand, he was extremely professional, yet fun, prepared well and made delicious meals for us that everyone enjoyed! He even made a separate dish to accomodate one person’s food restrictions. The entire group was pleased with his detail and desire to go beyond the call of duty, including our bride to be. I would absolutely recommend him for events and will call again for my own future events!

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.

Roxanne was wonderful! Initial planning emails: Wonderful and friendly! Roxanne was so good at reassuring me and guiding me. I had no idea what I needed, and she helped me decide on what would fit my small reception best. Payment: I totally messed up my method of payment and made Roxanne have to wait past the final deadline for her money. She was so patient and gracious about it. We checked in with each other via email until the issue was resolved. Day of: Roxanne let me know what information she needed to properly deliver the food and supplies several days before my event. She was on time, prompt with set up, gave a clear explanation of what went with what. She gave me a much-needed hug before the wedding started. Food: Every single thing was delicious. We had Caprese salad cups, Veggie eggrolls, Stuffed mushrooms, Olive bread, and Shrimp cocktail. I originally asked for enough for 35, but then asked if I ought to over order for 40 just in case. She was very reassuring and promised there would be enough for 40. All my guests very honestly told me they loved the food and that they thought it was a good amount for such a short gathering of about 2.5 hours. The Olive bread really was excellent, and the Caprese salad cups were super tasty! The egg rolls disappeared quickly! Presentation and set up: As promised, the chaffing dishes kept the food just right. Even the stuffed mushrooms which would have been ideally been kept warm in the oven were perfectly fine in the chaffing dish. We had to add some extra ice to the shrimp, but that was literally the only thing we had to attend to. Everything else was set up properly. Plenty of utensils, plates, napkins, serving spoons, etc. Clean up was a breeze. Everything left behind was disposable. Price: I will be honest, I have no idea what catering costs. I've never catered anything before that didn't involve the words "sub sandwich tray." But Roxanne had the kinds of food and service we wanted for the price we were willing to pay. So I have no complaints. :D Overall: Though I don't anticipate having another event that needs catering, I would absolutely use Say Goodnight Gracie catering again! And I would recommend her to any friend who needed catering, large or small.

Chef Jeffrey Mauro

It was magical - Chef Jeff Mauro showed up at our front door with two massive coolers and an arsenal of specialty chef supplies. Our kitchen became his playground as he turned every burner on high and let the four course festivities begin. Our daughter, who'd worked as a server in Jeff's Jam Restaurant for the summer, convinced Chef to cook dinner with her in our home before she went away to school. All I can say is WOW - we were in for an unexpected off-the-charts treat! We have been lucky enough to spend time seeking out exceptional dining experiences in Chicago, NYC & Paris from finding the perfect pancake to seeking out Michelin Star chefs going out on their own...and nothing compared to this evening. Chef Mauro is one of those people who's born to be a chef. His innate passion for food and commitment to detail shined with every course he crafted. Truly I didn't know food could taste so phenomenal. For the first course, Chef used ingredients from our garden to create an unbelievable heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad. For the second course, he prepared poached sea bass atop a bed of crispy green apple slaw. For the third course, Chef sliced and plated duck a l'orange besides a pillow of quinoa, topped with a poached quail egg and peppercorn garnish. And for course four, Chef seared the most tender venison medallions, accompanied by a house-made sauce and a sweet corn salad. Despite my course by course description, no words can do a night with Chef Mauro justice. It was so much fun. Chef engaged us every step of the way. He enlisted us in building the works of art that became our plates for each course. He paired wine with each course and described the "do's and don'ts" of cooking techniques and flavor pairings. And he created a truly unforgettable experience. 10/10 would recommend highly!

        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.
