I hired Jessica to cater an Open House for our Home Care Agency. From the moment I met Jessica I liked her! She is warm and friendly with a "can do" attitude. She presented me with a gourmet lunch menu all made with fresh foods and herbs. Her presentation of the food and arrangements was beautiful. She used fresh flowers and herbs from her own garden. We had @ 50 guests and had plenty of food. The guests couldn't stop talking about how good all the food was! I would use Jessica again and I would definitely recommend her for any catering job. She is a wonderful person!

Chef Maria and her staff went above and beyond my expectations for our Christmas office party at my home. Her menu choices were all so fantastic it was hard to choose!! She is very easy to work with and the day of the event she took over and never let me help sever or clean up, I enjoyed the fact that I only had to host. We even had a mini cooking Q and A before my guests arrived. We absolutely love Maria and her staff, she will be catering all my future events!

Divine Catering & Events was nothing short of amazing when coming through for my husband and I on our wedding day. Our original plans for catering changed last minute and even though our guest list was small (approx. 50 guests) I was really concerned about the short turn around and price quote I would receive from prospective caterers. I reached out to Dabriah with Divine Catering, not only did she respond quickly and assuredly with a quote, but the prices were fair and the food was delicious! Our guest raved about how tasty everything was! Everything arrived promptly and her professionalism is second to none. We will definitely use Divine Catering & Events again in the future! Regards, Dana & Samuel Bryant

    Love these guys! The Food is spectacular! You can get your street meat with a twist! One of my favorite things about seeing these guys around downtown (besides the food) is the price! For how amazing their food is you would think it was going to be super expensive, but its anywhere from 6-10 bucks! Another one of the great things about these guys, is they have a vegetarian option! I can't tell you how many times I'm downtown late night wanting a snack and the only thing these vendors have is meat... But have NO FEAR the Slamwich Brothers are here! And they will hook you up with the MiMi burger which is a veggie burger loaded with toppings on an amazing brioche bun!! Last but not least you can't beat the customer service. These guys are just genuine bros, making a living at something they love to do! So don't be scared to spark a conversation with these guys, they're outgoing and always up to get feedback from their customers. So if you're looking for some great funkin food, or looking for someone to cater your grad parties, block parties, work parties, etc., these guys are a phenomenal choice!

    We hired JM catering for my grandmother Marie Winbush 75th birthday party. He was able to stay within our budget and meet our very specific menu request. Everyone raved at how wonderful the food was. I would definitely recommend his services to others and use him again for other functions. JM was prompt, professional, and provided a great service. Thank you

    Jennifer and Brad catered to our Administrative Appreciation Day. They brought in vegetarian egg strata as well as ham and cheese strata. Along with that there were fresh fruit, sausage (pork and turkey), roasted potatoes, and monkey bread. Jennifer and Brad were kind, hospitable, and accommodating. Everything was fantastic and they made sure the chafing dishes were replenished. However, there were few issues that were minuscule and didn't parade the morning.

    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.
