As a Christmas present, our loving daughter and her boyfriend set us up with Chef Tony for a four-course dinner experience that my wife and I will never forget. Tony visited with us before the event to personally get to know us, tailor the menu and experience, and accommodate dear friends that joined us for our Anniversary celebration. Tony pampered us in our home with unbelievably delicious food and global wine pairings that were absolutely perfect. He exceeded all our wildest expectations! His passion, presentation and preparedness made for an incredible evening. Tony joined us at the table for the fourth course, and we were having such a great time together that we ended up carrying well into the night. We would strongly recommend Chef Tony and will be requesting him for future events!

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.

We hired Linda for our son's 1st birthday party, and we couldn't have had a better experience. She was super accommodating with everything from menu options, pricing, a last minute change of location, and she even delivered us a hot meal to sample prior to us hiring her. Our guests spoke very highly of their food and service. I would definitely recommend Linda for your catering needs!

Melissa and her team did a fantastic job catering our wedding. They were professional in every sense and helped with everything! They even offered to restock our cookie table when it was running low which was not expected. They were awesome and we will use them again!

Allison has worked with me on many occasions teaching me the necessary tools to become a good cook. I felt very comfortable learning even the most basic skill such as using a knife properly, making simple and some not so simple sauces and also learning to put a menu together for a dinner party. I can say she is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and very talented. She really makes cooking, and creating delicious masterpieces look so easy. I've used Allison as a caterer for many different occasions. It's amazing to watch her make gormet dishes with ease for crowds of 12 or 100. She was a professional from start to finish and left my house as clean as she found it. Thanks Allison, I'm more comfortable in the kitchen however, I'm still going to use you for when I really want to impress family and friends.

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!!

Jerry's Kitchen is a gem within the food truck world. Their menu is full of variety and I have never been disappointed by a dish! They have always been respectful about catering to dietary restrictions and food allergies. I have seen them at multiple food truck festivals and catering events and they have the fastest, most courteous service every time.

We had a tasting today, with Sodiah and Jim, the chef...and hired them on the spot! Not only is the food delicious and fresh, but Sodiah and Jim were delightful to be with! They took so much time to talk with us and work within our budget-- there's no " package deal" or set menus, as we have experienced interviewing other caterers. You tell them what your budget is, and they are so helpful and wonderful...we feel so blessed! Our daughter's wedding is in June, and we so look forward to not only a lovely, succulent meal-- we are excited to be with them! FIVE STAR NOW, AND I'M SURE IT WILL END UP A FIVE+ STAR ON JUNE 18th! We highly recommend this catering team....AWESOME.

Tanya catered a Christmas gathering at our home for 10 adults + kids with appetizers, buffet dinner and dessert. We had hired a chef the previous year and didn't have a great experience...this year however our guests RAVED about the food! Tanya was professional, brought all of her own equipment to cook and serve, and she and her assistant left my kitchen in great shape. She was easy to work with in the planning stages, promptly responded to calls and e-mails and sent me an extensive menu of choices for course selections which she modified as needed. The night was relaxed and at the end my guests commented that they really couldn't remember what was served the previous year, but the food was delicious this year! There were plenty of leftovers to be enjoyed as well. I would not hesitate to hire her again!

I became acquainted with Ma'idah Catering Co. at a friend's wedding. The food was beautifully presented and the variety and tastes were awesome. So many people there were just chattering about the food! Since then, my family and others that I know have employed the Ma'idah Catering Co. for all of our affairs. We have the option of choosing our own menu from fresh goods (not canned or already processed), or to use a theme menu presented by Ma'idah. The results have been nothing short of awesome!

Prompt and courteous responses from the staff. Very responsive to needs. Servers were not as experienced as those from other caterers I've used, but their enthusiasm helped cover the inexperience.

We hired beeandjay’s catering for our wedding and I must say we were very pleased with how professional they were. We were also very grateful that they allowed us to have a hand in our menu choice. All the other catering companies we called had menu choices for us to pick from and it was things I nor my husband ate. Beeandjay’s catering was understanding of any changes that we made. The day of the wedding they arrived early to make sure everything was running smoothly. I highly recommend beeandjay’s catering for your next event.

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.

Excellent! The food was very well planned and prepared for 100 people. The chicken fingers, buffalo wings, and sliders were a huge hit! Nicki worked very hard to make sure that everything was just right. She went above and beyond and provided extra help at the party which was amazing. I will use this catering service in the future! Nicki is very easy to work with, and she is extremely hard working! We were thrilled with the success of the party!

Chef Doug has cooked for me on several occasions. He has a wealth of food knowledge and experience. He is timely, tidy, and professional. Pictured below is a salad with pickled strawberries, grilled chicken, dandelion greens, Gorgonzola, strawberry vinegarette. The other is monkfish on rice with a side of sea beans and accented with lemon zest.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
