The service was outstanding only to be surpassed by the quality of the food. Everything was delicious and all the guests were raving about everything that was served. The quantity was likewise outstanding as we have leftovers enough for the whole week. I would recommend Chuck and his wife to anyone looking for home catering services. It was truly an incredibly lucky find and I'm so glad I hired him for this special occasion. He really made the day extra special and one to remember.

This is a first class professional catering service. You really do get what you pay for: not only was the food delicious, but Lauren and her team were superb: very sweet, but also very efficient, paying attention to every detail, and giving us precious advice when needed. Our bartender (whom we had hired separetly because we had a previous relationship with him) failed to show up and Lauren immediately and seamlessly fixed that glitch by re-organizing her staff and deploying 2 of them to tend bar. Every aspect of the service was very good. We cannot recommend them enough and will use them again. Thank you Lauren, Tony, John and all the others.

We were extremely happy with the catering services that Manjar provided for a small cocktail party to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Adolfo and his team were professional and attentive and went above and beyond to make the occasion special. The passed appetizers were delicious and presented beautifully. We can't thank Adolfo enough for his attention to detail and his personalized service that allowed us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.

I was planning a last minute 50th for my husband which I was planning on doing everything myself because it was so last minute. I decided to go with a BBQ even though I knew a family member would be at the grill all day and not be able to enjoy the party. During my planning, I went to a party that Joe was catering. I was so impressed with Joe that I went over and asked if he would be available for my date knowing it was a long shot. Of course he had other parties that day. However, after speaking to him for a while, he was sympathetic to my needs and asked me to give him a call that week and he will check to see if he can put together a team to work my party, but he wanted me to understand he would not be there personally. I understood and trusted his staff would do a good job. I called him that week. First let me start by saying Joe is the most friendly, stand up business man I have ever done business with. He was so helpful with planning my menu and giving me different ideas. Joe's team arrived, set up in 10 minutes and started cooking immediately. They came with some food already prepared so my guest could start while the grill was heating up. The food was delicious from the BBQ meats, the sides and the salads. Joe provided more than enough to serve people twice even three times plus I had left overs. The best part, Joe showed up to check on how everything was going which was not necessary because his staff was professional, friendly and experienced. Like I said, Joe's a great guy. When the crew left, everything was cleaned up and my left overs put to the side. I am still getting calls from my guests telling me what a great BBQ I had, complimenting the food and the staff. LCI Caterers saved me. Joe and his crew made my party a huge success. I will not only use Joe for any future BBQ parties but he will be my go to caterer for all my catering needs. Thanks again Joe.

f despite that it was thanksiving day, and she had her own family, Chef Aless catered my family's special day with superb attention to both the food, which was beyond delicious and plentiful, and presentation. She arrived early with a trolley full of delectable hors d'oeuvres, the best turkey ever baked, and containers full of great accompanying veggies. This was the first time I have ever needed outside catering, but the experience of having Chef Aless was so seamless, and the food was so perfect, that even if I have to invent an occasion,which I will, I know she could handle it with a touch of that marvelous French charm and expertise, and very little interference from me! I'm a cook,specifically a baker. but Chef Aless is a master, and everything was delivered expeditiously and promptly. And with heart... A truly wonderful experience. Thank you so much Alessandra.

I had planned my bachelor party to be in the Hamptons during October. This was my first time out there and had no idea where to start. I definitely wanted to have a special dinner with my friends while still keeping it affordable. We were a group of 13 people. My friend recommended using F.I.G. Catering for my event and I’m so happy they did! From the beginning, Nick was so responsive and helpful. I didn’t know what would be good for this type of event and he had a ton of recommendations. He even offered to do something special and custom for my event. He made the set up process very easy and worry-free! Nick arrived promptly on the day of our event! He came prepared with an assistant to help him set up and work our event. Nick got to work immediately on our appetizers. He freshly prepared all of our delicious appetizers in the kitchen using fresh ingredients. We were able to socialize and enjoy the house while our food was being prepared. They would bring out our appetizers one by one and showcased each item on beautiful plating. I felt like a true King! For our appetizers, we had butternut squash crostinis, tuna poke. Chicken and waffle bao buns, grilled pear wrapped with jamon and the miso smoked halibut. Each appetizer was fantastic! It felt like there were freshly prepared at a 5 star restaurant. My guests keep raving on how fabulous it was to hang out and get served delicious food! Nick did such a great job at spacing out our meals. Shortly after eating our appetizers, we had the delicious shaved Brussels and fennel salad. It was chopped and prepared to perfection! Who would have thought a salad could be so delicious! We also had a wonderful pasta course. Some of us had the penne with grilled chicken and eggplant and some had the lobster tortellaci. Both dishes were excellent! For our entrees, we had a bunch of great options! Some of us had the seabass , Salmon and hangar steak. Being the bachelor boy, I got to taste it all! All of the entrees were so delicious! To top it all off, for dessert we had a doughnut with ginger ice cream. This was the perfect ending to our incredible meal. Overall, I would give Nick and F.I.G. Catering an 11 out of 10! Nick’s professionalism, responsiveness and work quality led me to having one of the best weekends of my life! I would recommend using him and F.I.G. for any event!

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.
