She came through at a last minute notice and provided a nice selection of foods and drinks for a mixer event. The drinks were great and her deserts were a hit. The only food item I would reconsider from the menu is the burger slider. The burgers were overlooked and not warm by the time they were served. Other than that the service and food were great!

Chef Chris & team were amazing! I requested a tapas dinner with wines pairing for ten people at my NYC apartment. Planning, Food, Service & Clean up were all top notch. Chef was very creative with six diverse courses and his sommelier prepped, paired & explained the wines perfectly. My guests were WOWED! I would recommend Chris & his team for your next party / event.

We have had the pleasure to work with Bacco catering a number of times, and in each instance they deliver perfectly in terms of quality of food, service, and attentiveness to client needs. Most importantly, the chef creates delicious food with a warmth and responsiveness that makes it feel like it's a friend in your home. The staff are always responsive, helpful, and savvy enough to know the right balance between making sure guests are served, and not drawing attention to themselves. I would highly recommend Bacco Catering for any special event.

I was given Tamara's information through the venue my event was held at. She took a very last minute request for about 100 people, and set up the evening's order instantly. Given her rave reviews on Thumbtack and Yelp, I felt pretty confident that the food and service would be great... which is an absolute understatement! Tamara and her team showed up on time and ready to get to work. She had a great crew with her, very engaging with the guests, and the food was AMAZING. The only downside was that I didn't get to eat more of it - would have hovered over the serving table if I could have :) I hope I have a chance in the future to have Tamara and her team back for another event. Until then, I would absolutely recommend her for your next catered event. :)

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

Tyler and his team have been bartending and running my Holiday Party for many years. They consistently go above and beyond and always do a fantastic job. In addition to making the best Bloody Mary I and my guests have ever had, they organized my party incredibly well, made sure everyone's glasses were always filled and kept food and other items stocked and organized. In short, they allowed me to enjoy my own party. They are incredibly easy to deal with and very flexible. I give them my highest recommendation and would not have a party without them.

I cannot stop raving about the food, service and professionalism of Chef Stenneth and his team. I searched the internet and referrals for a special chef to cater our celebration for a dear friend who passed away in December. Right from the first call, I knew Chef was the right person to do the party. Even after highly referred caters called, my gut said to stay with Chef. And, he did not disappoint! The guests were amazed of the presentation and attention to details. The food was outstanding and all of the diverse 75+ guests kept coming back for more. Not one complaint. The staff was easy, professional, friendly and conscientious! The team made celebrating the passing of a dear friend effortless and we are all extremely grateful. Chef is talented and personable. He will work with you to design your dream party or just a simple dinner. Since the celebration, others from the party have used his services. You should too! As I said, he will not disappoint! Thank you Chef Stenneth! Looking forward to you helping me with my 60th celebration! Yeah Mon! Cheers!

I thought the service was great, it was very easy to order the food and to work with Jennifer. they were on time, presentation was good and they were very friendly. The food was very healthy, almost too healthy for this group. Which is not your fault. It is always hard to safisfy everyone. We definitely thought the salad on the first day needed dressing. The chocolate chip cookies were a little bland. They need more something (salt?) not sure what, but not a lot of flavor in the dough. Overall, I think people liked it. Thanks so much.

I could not be more satisfied with JP's work. For a week or two leading up to my networking event, JP communicated with me regularly and with great responsiveness to make sure everything went perfectly. I wanted to make sure we had enough food for 50 guests within a tight budget. To be honest, I was worried we would run out, but JP made it work while providing exceptional quality. All of my guests were wowed by his simple, yet impressive hors d'oeuvres. His work ethic at the event was above and beyond. And to top it all off, JP is a great guy. Doing business with JP felt like doing business with a good friend. The level of trust and willingness to go beyond his job description really show why JP is the guy to go to. I would highly recommend JP and will be pursuing his service again for a similar event in the spring. Thank you, JP!

I threw a catered birthday party, and upon signing up with Thumbtack, Brooklyn Kitchen got back to me in the hour. Throughout the entire process, their responsiveness was always immediate and thorough, anytime I had a question, and we were even able to set up a call to discuss the catering. The food was delivered promptly and ready to present/serve, friends raved about the wings at the party and the NEXT DAY. Highly recommend.

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!!

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.
