Chef Tony rocks! I hired Tony for a large group of 17 girls for a bachelorette party in LBI. Being new to Thumbtack and never have hired a personal chef before, I was a little nervous. Chef Tony made the entire experience seamless, enjoyable and fun--oh and of course, the food was GREAT! Don't be scared to ask questions, Chef Tony will walk you through everything and make sure your party is exactly what you want it to be.

Hog Day exceeded my expectations in catering my party. We live out of state but Shannon made it easy to do everything on the phone or through thumbtack. She helped me pick out a simple menu for that backyard BBQ feel. The day of the party they came and set everything up from the food down the utensils and plates. Nothing was left out!! The food was amazing!! Everyone raved about the brisket and the macaroni and cheese!! I highly recommend Hog Day for catering your event. Thank you to Shannon for making everything so easy and for an amazing price!

Anton was so wonderful to us during the whole process. From the first phone call, picking our buffett menu and pricing. We had a set per person price and he quoted us under it. We had impeccable service at our wedding reception. His staff treated my husband an I like a king and queen. Now to the food. The best I can come up with is amazingly awesome. Everything was way beyond my expectations. Every guest personally came to us remarking how superb the food was. I highly recommend Feast Caterers for any event you may need a caterer for. I look forward to planning another event with Chef Anton.

Kathleen is an excellent face painter. I hired her for my daughter's my little pony themed birthday party. She was extremely professional, she brought little goody bags and a present for my daughter. All my guests at my party loved the job she done. I will definitely hire her again for another party. She was painting non stop at the party without even taking a break. I highly recommend her, and I'm so happy that I found her on Thumbtack.

Allison was great. Came right on time, had everything ready to go when the guest started to arrive. I was hosting a birthday party for about 45 adults and 20 some kids. Plenty of food that everyone loved. Would definitely hire her again.

I worked with Chef Jim to have a week of dinners catered for my team when we were in Wilmington for a trial. I actually reached out to him for another team first, only to have our case settle at the last minute. With that said, Chef Jim was flexible and we just moved our menu to the next group arriving a few weeks later. He was great about tailoring the menu to my request for healthy but tasty and we didn't miss the fat in any of the dishes we tried (normally we work out of hotels and use their in-house caterers, which means lots of heavy food with LOTS of fat and calories). With Chef Jim, we got lots of spices and flavors but didn't feel weighted down at the end of the meal. Chef Jim was punctual in getting everything set up and then returning later to tear everything down. I will definitely reach out to him for another menu next time I have a team in Wilmington.

Jim & Cindy were such a great find for our May wedding! Cindy helped alleviate a lot of stress and questions I had, especially since I’m not in the wedding industry, and really helped me out with her tips and tricks! After speaking with a few other "big" caterers, talking to Cindy felt so personal and attentive. She really took the time during my initial phone call to get to know what I was looking for, our price point, what we were like as a couple, and what I was hoping for from our day. Phone calls seemed to be the best way to get into contact with either of them, as opposed to email or social media, which was fine with me. Since we went with Shady Maple for our cake, they even picked it up on their way, which was a huge help! Our venue had very strict rules, and they were willing to negotiate a fair price so that we could use their services, but still abide by the venue. On the day of the wedding, Jim and Cindy were great! The food was amazing, they helped break down at the end of the night, and really went above and beyond. I’m so happy we went with DuJour!!

Chef Tanya provided the appetizers and desserts for a private cocktail party of 40, to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. First, Tanya visited me at my home to get the "lay of the land" and to learn the type of appetizers that would please my crowd. Later that night Tanya sent me an email a pro-forma menu attached, and the suggestions were amazing and spot-on. No need to change a thing. Tanya and her assistant arrived 3 hours before party time with all the ingredients and equipment she would need. They made all the food from scratch, right in my kitchen: all fresh ingredients, nothing prepared or cooked elsewhere in advance. I wish I could have captured the amazing fragrances in my kitchen and bottle them! Throughout the party, Tanya collaborated with the servers, the bartender, and myself, producing wave after wave of amazing food while my guests were thoroughly entertained. At just the right moment Tanya & Co brought in the most incredible Apricot Pecan Cake, with a '6' and a '0' candle on top, and we all joined in a chorus of Happy Birthday. I could just rave on and on here, as my guests did throughout and after the party...but let me complete my story by saying that, after 3 hours of food prep and a 3 hour party of continuous food, Tanya and the servers cleaned up the entire kitchen, leaving it as they found it - freshly cleaned and spotless. As for the "planning" vs "fulfillment", Tanya's estimate of how much food would be needed was incredibly accurate...everyone ate until their hearts' content, and only small tray of hors d'oevres remained afterward...which I promptly seized for my own late night snack! Bottom Line: Chef Tanya is a complete pro and an outstanding chef. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to do something special for a special occasion. Thank you, Tanya!

We used D'Lish for my wife's surprise birthday party. Deirdre was fantastic! I had never planned an event like this before and from the my first interaction with Deirdre, I knew the event was going to be great. She handled EVERYTHING -- rentals, liquor, setup, cleanup -- in addition to the excellent food our friends and family are still raving about. Not only that, but she also went far out of her way to ensure the entire meal, including dessert, was gluten free, even finding a dedicated gluten free bakery for the cake. Trust me when I tell you that you cannot make a mistake with D'Lish. For our next event, I won't even consider looking around. I'll just call Deirdre and know everything will be great, down to the smallest detail.

Chaad and his team are truly amazing. Recently, I had a hip hop 80’s party, and each time I begin to feel stressed, Chaad and his team jumped in to make sure everything went smoothly as planned. Amongst all of the catering companies I’ve contacted, Ster Catering was the only one who provided samples of the foods I wanted served at my party. This is a huge plus and I wish other catering companies offered this option. On the day of my event, Chaad and his team arrived early. They assisted with decorating (which they did not have to do). They also provided great food and drinks which everyone loved. I highly recommend Ster Catering and I would definitely hire Chaad and his team for another event.

Good experience.. Food arrived in time, food was still hot (we're located an hour away). My staff thought the food was very good (we chose the chicken parm, ribs, shrimp scampi, and salmon filet along with some sides)... The brownies were great, cookies a bit on the hard side. We'd use this caterer again.

I have used Let's Cultivate Food for catering as well as a personal chef's dinner. On both occasions, Yoon was really great to work with. She was quick to respond and also very accommodating of the large party we had. She worked with us to fit the theme of the party and was so easy to work with. The food was delicious and so creative! For the personal chef's dinner, we selected the Asian Fusion Flair option which was very tasty. The four course meal was prepared, cooked and also we had no clean up to do. I would definitely recommend the personal chef's dinner as a fun group event or even a creative date option.

First off, the menu Chef Cathy put together for our international theme was perfectly balanced and diverse. The food was a hit with our guests! Working with Jersey Girl Cafe was easy and quick responses to every question. Very accommodating and I would be happy to hire them again. They were not late but not early either so if you start at 11:30 let them know you need them there by 11:15 at latest. Paper goods that came were included but don't count on it to cover your head count, buy separately.

      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.

      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.

      How much should catering cost for a wedding?

      The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

      • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
      • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
      • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
      • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

      How do you serve food at a wedding?

      Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

      • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
      • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
      • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
      • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
      • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
