We had a great dinner party provided by Shaun for New Years Eve. We had 5 courses and each of them was delicious. My partner and I eat out almost 5 -6 days a week and were very surprised at the quality, inventiveness and presentation with a personal chef at home. If we have another private dinner party would not hesitate to have Shaun back.

Very easy to work with, my guests were super happy. Food was good, but more similar to a caterer's food than what I'm used to seeing from food trucks - they had everything prepped prior to arriving at my house then assembled it there instead of cooking it to order. Not a bad thing at all, because the food came out quickly and none of my guests had to wait in the rain. They left us the leftovers which were demolished by our guests later in the evening.

The Traveling Chef catered our wedding and rehearsal dinner. His food was to die for! He was very professional and the food was like eating at my favorite restaurant! After my wedding, I called and booked him to take some cooking lessons. Money well spent!

I used Green Light Meals to cater a private family dinner to celebrate my wife’s 75th birthday. The entire family came home for the weekend to surprise her...and we did. However, we have a wide variety of food requirements within our family...medical gluten free, vegetarian, no sugar or artificial sweeteners, and no red meat. Green Light Meals customized the dinner with various entrees that met everyone’s personal selections. The food was excellent and the customer service was outstanding...including delivering the entire meal on Sunday of a long holiday weekend. The Hors D’Oeuvres, Salad, Entrees, and Side Vegetable Dishes all complimented each other. And the custom, gluten-free, three-layer white cake with with white icing was a real hit. With full confidence, I can highly recommend Green Light Meals.

Justin took a last minute project to cater a lovely dinner for my husband's family during a time of grief. He responded to my request quickly, understood my needs with ease, made suggestions and delivered promptly. I was pleased that he accepted PayPal as I was not present to pay in person. He pulled a rabit out of a hat for me and I am extremely grateful. He is an entrepreneur and an angel !!

These women have serviced two of my events(planning, ordering as well as bartending and serving) and I couldn’t have had a better experience! I was able to enjoy the party as much as my guests did while Angie and Jasmine took on almost everything else. I cannot speak for the catering (I will in November when they cater our Thanksgiving dinner) but everything else they offered was worth every single penny. You won’t regret working with the Culinary friends!

The job was a baby shower for our daughter, for 46 people. We would definitely use Elegant Accent Catering again. The food was well received by everyone. Few minor things, getting a price earlier in the interaction, and the coffee was little strong. Jeremy was easy and pleasant to work with during set up. He arrived right on time, was prepared, and everything went along as expected. We will definitely use Elegant Accent Catering for our next catering needs and recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer.

I host a picnic for my women's club, and typically the event is held at a country club. I opted for a park setting and had Bedrock cater. All the food was delicious - and devoured. The grilled chicken was out of sight! Those fancy ladies will talk about you if the food isn't right. Thanks to Bedrock, I received praise and requests to hold the event again next year.

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.
