Thank you Chef Scott for a fantastic kabob and sauces assortment - The food was a hit! Perfect for a backyard party, our guests enjoyed the convenience of food on skewers, experimenting with all the different flavors you curated, and of course the excellent quality of the meats and vegetables themselves. Hope to work with you again - Highly recommend!

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.

This was a buffet style dinner in celebration of my wife's birthday in our home. We had approximately 40 people. Everyone at the party raved about the food. It was great having someone else do the cooking and serving so we could spend time with our guests. The process of selecting the menu, signing contracts, and taking care of details was very easy . There were a number of head count changes which Chef Jacob easily accommodated. He and his staff were very friendly and polite. Overall a great experience. I am sure we will use Chef Jacob's service again. He's flexible, accommodating and most important a great Chef.

We searched the Internet for someone who had done a mashed-potato bar and other delicious foods for my daughter's graduation party. Lisa responded quickly with ideas for foods and pricing per person for each choice individually. She also advised us that we could order as many of each item as we wanted and were not locked in to ordering the same number of everything. She happily obliged when we asked to come out for a taste of her food and even had us in her caffe when it was convenient for us (which happened to be when they were closed.) We knew right away that we wanted her to cater our event. From the time that we booked to the time of the event, Lisa was fabulous. She was very responsive to any questions that I had before the event. She also helped me figure out what all was needed...even for things that she wasn't making. She worked within our budget and assured me that everything would be perfect. It is an understatement to say that she did not disappoint. She responded to my very last minute request of bringing coffee with a 'No Problem'. Lisa and her husband, Ed, arrived in plenty of time to set up. They were very professional and a delightful couple. We got rave reviews on all of the food...from the very youngest of guests to the very oldest and everyone in-between. Numerous guests asked us who catered our party. We were so pleased. They made absolute delisiousness, with a touch of elegance, out of what seemed to us like such simple choices. We would definitely hire Lisa and the team at Caffe Barista for any other event...no matter how casual or sophisticated -- big or small it may be. Thank you Caffe Barista!

Amazing. Simply amazing. i threw a party for 80 people in 72 hours and the square cafe didn't miss a beat. From planning a menu to preparing amazing food to being the sweetest team of professionals ever. I recommended them to everyone at the party and everyone raves about the spare rib sliders.

Mark and his team did an amazing job catering our wedding reception. I needed a gluten free meal which would have made the planning more complicated with most caterers but it was anything but stressful with Mark. From the beginning, everything was customized. During our first meeting we sat down and talked about our vision and our likes and dislikes. Instead of having a separate meal set aside for me, he worked with us to create a menu that was entirely gluten free. He took our discussions and turned it into a menu options for us. We worked together to tweak the final menu until we had a meal that reflected our tastes and needs. On the day of the wedding, Mark and his staff were great. He had an abundant spread set up on our table so that we would not miss out on our appetizers. His staff made sure that we had everything we needed. We could not recommend Mark more highly, especially to those with dietary restrictions. One would be hard pressed to find a caterer who cares more about his clients and creating a magical event for them. Thank you Mark for a great evening. Kim

Chef Bill did a wonderful job for my impromptu party for 25. His menu was delicious, his set-up was exactly what I needed and he was extremely nice and friendly. I could not have asked for a better traveling chef. I would ask for his services again and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

I used GLM for a recent retirement party for family and friends. Melissa is just great to work with for ordering, pricing and the food preparation. She was professional and pleasant each time we interacted and quick to reply to all my requests. My group thoroughly enjoyed the food we had and I would recommend her to others for group gatherings. I especially liked that the food was prepared in a healthy and appetizing way. Thank you Melissa for all you did to make our day special.

I had a good experience with Strictly Business Catering. I hired them for a brunch talk in Pitt's Cathedral of Learning. I've found in the past that getting caterers to deliver to rooms in academic buildings can be pain, but SBC seemed to know their way around. The food was quite good -- definitely impressive for the value. The quantity was also impressive, as attendees were able to take some home with them.

I had the best experience ever with the Twisted Apron! I used them for my daughter’s graduation party at my home. My guests are still raving about the beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious fare Christy (and Andrew) provided for my daughter’s graduation party. And the service was fantastic. I had never used catering services before, and researched a number of caterers for a while. They all charged more and provided less. I’m so glad I went on Thumbtack and found Christy! A+ on: responsiveness/attention to detail; professionalism, keeping a super-calm atmosphere; beautiful presentation; accommodation of specific requests; delicious yet uncomplicated food (as requested); providing tents/tables/chairs; arrival time & set-up, take-down etc. I truly could go on & on.

Ms. J's catering has done numerous and very different events for us, and always goes above and beyond. The food is always amazing, but equally comforting is knowing that there is someone who is extremely attentive to every detail for guests, so as the host, I for once don't have to worry about anything - other than enjoying the party! Love Ms. J's!!!

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!

I used Gibson's for a birthday party for about 100 people. I chose Gibson's because I frequent their restaurant on a regular basis.The food was delicious and the catering service was outstanding. They arrived the time they stated (a little earlier)and set up and had everything ready on time. I had a color scheme and they decorated the tables with the food in colors that coordinated with my color scheme. All of my guests raved over the food and everyone was quite pleased. Gibson's will be my caterer anytime I am in the market for one. Everyone was polite, professional and friendly. I highly recommend Gibson's for anyone in the market for a caterer. You won't be disappointed.

I hired Tony to cater a dinner party (10 people). I was quite specific in my request with regard to selection, quality, and allergy restrictions. Tony and Jeff far exceeded my expectations. The food was outstanding. The service was first class. Their professionalism was exactly what I was looking for. Tony and Jeff took care of everything from food preparation to clean up. I was thoroughly impressed.

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.
