We booked 8 meals for 45 people with Chef Domick, and it was absolutely delightful. On the first evening the portions where a bit too small, but after mentioning it, he stuffed us up afterwards. Every single dish was delicious! (and we had meat, veggie and vegan options!... for we are talking about 25 different meals here) I would definitely, DEFINITLY hire him again! It was a great pleasure!

Rick is the nicest, sweetest guy - not to mention an amazing chef! We hired him for our wedding and are very impressed with his work! EASY TO REACH: He is the ONLY caterer that you can easily get a hold of with his wonderful assistant and so flexible with our tight budget. FLEXIBLE TO BUDGET: I work at a non-profit so I was really nervous when we started throwing around the idea of catering the food. He was able to be creative to find a solution that fit our budget for our special day. AMAZING FOOD: We set up a tasting to sample his food and it was delicious! He was so generous and sent us home with the leftovers! CLEAN KITCHEN: Rick took us on a tour of his kitchen and showed us his health inspection. It was perfect! KIND HEART: From the moment we met Rick he just had something about him that makes you trust him. As we spoke with him we learned he is a man of many trades with his amazing cuisine, woodworking, and not to mention how he works with a program to train job skills to Developmentally Disabled population. He is just an all around great guy and wonderful chef!

We loved working with A Catered Affair. They were able to make several last minute changes and even provided linens for our dinner. We had one small hiccup -- we had paid for a bartender but the staff didn't seem to be aware -- but they stepped up and provided one last minute. Additionally, all of our guests raved how good the food was and they were very accommodating of providing an all-vegetarian meal. Slightly pricier than others but well worth it for what turned out to be a fantastic evening.

Hiring Jessica to cater for our housewarming party was a great decision! She made our hosting simple and everyone was really impressed at the quality and presentation of the food. Her chicken piccata and vegetarian lasagna were incredibly tasty! All we had to do really was keep it in the oven and plate it when we were ready.

I hired them for my sister's 50th bday party and she's a vegan and wanted mostly vegetarian healthy appetizer options. Chef Ami was on time and presented the food beautifully! Everyone raved about how delicious the food was! This saved me so much time and was well worth the price. It's also worth the extra cost to have a server!

Jay Woosely of The Happy Chefs did an amazing job! He is a brilliant artist! This was my first experience hiring a personal chef. He helped guide me through the process. He was very easy to work with. Jay did exactly what he promised he would do and then some. He and his staff were very personable and honest. His creations were delectable and aesthetically pleasing! Jay helped to make our evening dinner for two one to remember. Thanks Jay! I will be using this service again! I would highly recommend Jay and The Happy Chefs for all of your catering needs. We really appreciated the complimentary dessert dishes as well. Thanks again for creating an wonderful environment.

I am so impressed with the quality of Lety Sanchez' cooking. Her food is definitely not the typical Mexican fare we think of. It is inventive, yet with a traditional quality that reminds her of her home and family. She is excited about her flavors and creations. Her baking is interesting, attractive and delicious. Her sauces are distinct and fresh. Her passion for cooking is evident. I work with her twice a week in a completely different circumstance and have always found her to be punctual, extremely cheerful, dedicated and very enjoyable to be around.

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.
