This was our first time using Thumbtack and the first time we experienced Chef Tyler and his team’s capabilities, and we highly recommend them. Chef Tyler prepared spectacular dishes for a company holiday party in our home. Our guests are still raving about the food, which included several delicious appetizers, a fabulous steak entree, lots of side dishes, and a decadent chocolate lava cake. This event exceeded our expectations, and we definitely recommend hiring Chef Tyler versus going to a crowded, noisy restaurant or having a caterer drop-off pre-made dishes. Can’t wait until next year’s party and Chef Tyler’s next meal!

We hired Heart & Soul for a private dinner party, celebrating my mother-in-law's 70th birthday. Chef Lisa and Chef Ken, along with all of their team, are a true class-act. From the first moment of contact with the company, to the goodbye hug in our kitchen at the end of the meal — we were WOWed! Jessica, their Catering Manager, was communicative and friendly – working with me on the “perfect” menu, and remaining flexible for picky eaters. On the day of the event, Heart & Soul arrived on time, well-presented, and went above and beyond to accommodate our home, our dogs (!) and our party plans. And all of that was just the beginning. The food was AMAZING. Beautifully presented, and so delicious. Ingredients were fresh and whole; each course was better than the previous. Every plate was licked clean by our party, and there were many comments that it was “the best meal we’ve ever had.” To wrap it up, our kitchen was left cleaner than when Heart & Soul arrived. Thank you, for making this birthday dinner memorable and one-of-a-kind - we WILL be calling you again!

My event isn't until May, but I booked Susan and her team for my husbands 30th Birthday Party. Susan had some great ideas and was very open to any ideas that I had as well. I have nothing but trust that the food at his birthday party will be amazing.

Graduation party for about 40 people. Spoke with Yvonne! She came and gave me an estimate which was very reasonable! Yvonne & her Yesm came out & set the tables, chairs & linens up as promised. I received 35 chairs, 9 tables & a bonus of chair coverings!! My backyard was transformed into what looked like a wedding reception. I am most pleased! I highly recommend this company!!

    Chef Graham and his staff provided us with a fantastic array of food for our backyard luau. From the very beginning to the very end, Chef Graham was wonderful to work with. He helped us design a menu that fit our theme, listened to our needs, worked within our budget and then went above and beyond by making an amazing display of fabulous food. In addition, he generously added a few extra dishes to our menu that he thought our guests would enjoy. The party was a huge success and our guests all raved about how wonderful the food was! In addition, we had Marcus as our bartender and all our guests loved him too! In fact, my husband was thrilled that every time he headed back to the bar, Marcus was ready for him with his choice of beverage...big kudos!!! Thank you Chef Graham and your wonderful staff for making our backyard luau such a memorable event!

    Wrap it up is sure to be the best hit food at a party or gathering. Starting with the spicy deep fried eggs, onto the buffalo chicken wrap finishing up with a mudslide little horn. I would choose WRAP IT UP at your next event; whether it be a family picnic to sporting event. The food is delicious. The staff is friendly and overall great hospitality.

    Omg, the food was a HUGE hit at our party. They helped with more than we paid them for, so grateful to them for pitching in when our event planner didn't show up. We have already decided to book them at all our events. My mom even wants to book them for her wedding in Aug!! :) Awesome family!

      Yevads events did my 40th birthday party. They provided my invitations, catering and decorate. I had an all white theme and they decorated my outdoor party with white pipping drapes with white linens and white chair covers. They accented the white decore with rhinestone Center pieces. The food was amazing! The staff was punctual and had the food set up and warm in time for my guest. My event was an evening of elegance.

        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.
