I ordered a deep fried chicken, rice and roasted vegetable dish for a meeting at work from Lowcountry Creole Culinaire Catering. The delivery was punctual, Chef Frisco went the extra mile to cut up the chicken. Most importantly, the food was fabulous. The meal was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone at the meeting. I WILL be using Lowcountry Creole Culinaire Catering for ALL of my catering needs and would highly recommend them. The food was outstanding and so was the service.

From the first correspondence, she made me comfortable with how well my event would go. She always responded immediately with answers to my questions. I had a bit of a tough group. We had guests with gluten, lactose, and seafood allergies. She worked to ensure that everyone received something they enjoyed while dealing with all the allergies. Salmon is one of my favorite meals. She cooked it in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination with the rest of the food that she was cooking on the outdoor grill. Her salmon is AWESOME. Everything she made us was delicious. She was very patient with the small kitchen at the house I rented at the beach. She was also patient with all my guests running in and out of her kitchen. I would absolutely give her my 100% recommendation. You will be NOT be disappointed.

Where do I start with Citrus Catering...This catering company is one of the most professional catering companies I have had hired over the years. With most catering companies you worry about how constant they give great professional services, presentation and most importantly great tasting food. My family and friends raved about how great the food was. We had nothing left over. The personal those that was proved during my Hight Tea bridal shower really went above and beyond by expectations. I had several people requesting their services. I just loved it so much that I used them again for my baby shower. Again the personal touches to my custom menus were amazing and the food and presentation was beautiful and delicious. Not a lot of catering company and pride themselves on the presentation that they present with the theme for a private party. But this catering company always seems to deliver to match. I'm in Love with their level of service and great food.

I have a lot of experience with personal chefs and caterers. Sarah is by far the best chef I have ever hired. Usually catered food doesn't cut the mustard for my food savy guests, but with her years of experience at Charlestons best restaurants she blew us all away. I keep dreaming about the lettuce wraps! She was great with our guests, a true pleassure to be around. I will literally never hire another personal chef again. Rumor has it that she is also shooting a pilot for her own show with the food network...

My wife and I had a food truck party for 65 guests. Rod and Olivia couldn’t have been more hospitable and served all the selected items delicious and hot. Numerous friends and relatives said their choices were the best they ever tasted. We continued to hear the same stories weeks later. I would absolutely recommend Madrigal’s for a meal or a catering event. CH

Bluephlame, what can I say? The food was outstanding, the presentation, remarkable. My husband is such a picky eater, sometimes worse than a child, I told Chef Mac what he will eat and Chef took it and ran with it, my husband ate every course and raved about the taste! I can not wait to rebook chef for our next date night! If you don't book Blumephlame for your catering, private party/dinner needs you are truly missing a treat!

      I hired this amazing company to cater my husband's retirement party. We had close to 200 people in attendance. Our guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food was and how fast they were served. Each person received a generous portion. Chef Chika did a jaw dropping fruit display. The desserts where homemade and so yummy. Several people asked for her card to cater their next event. I am hosting a party in September and I'm not sure who will be the caterer. Just kidding. A lLttle Taste of Heaven has already been booked.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
