Jan was great to work with from beginning to end. After a complete remodel of our home I was not ready to have to prepare food for 20 for my husband's company holiday party. Jan was quick to respond to my inquiry and easy to communicate with through email (my preference). They arrived on time, explained everything to me so I could be a better hostess. All of our guests loved the food and especially the steak biscuits!! Yum! We will definitely use them again in the future and recommend to friends. Thanks!!!!

Kristen has catered the Christmas party for our office for the last 7 years. With each year she has surpassed our expectations. Not only is her food incredible but also the way she presents the food and tells us about how she prepared it. I highly recommend Kristen for any catering occasion. The best Chef I have ever encountered. Kristen is a very passionate Chef and her meals prove it.

We absolutely loved having HoneyFire Kitchen as our caterers for our wedding. Everyone at the wedding loved our food and we got so many compliments from people! Shane and his team really did a great job from the beginning and far exceeded our expectations as wedding caterers. We even got to try samples of all the food we were having in advance so we knew exactly how it was going to taste. Thanks so much to Shane and the team at HoneyFire Kitchen for all of the great food and service on our wedding day! :)

I hired Ludlow Catering for our firm's early Holiday party and couldn't have been more pleased. They did an impressive job decorating our foyer and open office space, like we'd asked. The food was excellent, our clients loved it. They over-delivered on all platforms and will certainly re-hire for like jobs in the future. Highly recommend.

The Go Go Gourmet provides excellent catering services with a variety of delicious items on their menu. My favorites are the old-fashioned chicken salad (which reminds me of the chicken my grandmother used to make) and the chicken casserole (perfect for serving for small...or large...dinner gatherings!). The signature desserts are 'sweet music' to this Southern girl! Go Go Gourmet is the perfect caterer for any event.

Peg Leg Porker responded to our Thumbtack request with a personal note indicating familiarity with our rehearsal picnic location. Heather, their catering manager, was well informed to work with us offering advice when asked. She was available during the four month waiting period to answer additional questions. The set up was on time, the food was FABULOUS (providing a great topic of conversation beyond the engaged couple). Heather and Christopher served us well without intruding on the joy of the evening. They cleaned up quietly but only after waiting until there was a lull in the activities that wouldn't interfere with the anecdotes being shared. GREAT CATERERS and true professionals.

Chef Laura has the ability to create delicious AND nutritious organic meals that will appeal to all your guests. Her take on the traditional Thanksgiving menu--green bean casserole, for example, made with fresh green beans, mushrooms, caramelized onions and quinoa--left even the die-hard traditionalists heading for seconds. Her takes on chicken (pomegranate glazed), fish (lemon-dill cod; Tuscan salmon), her fresh and flavorful salads ( cranberry apple with Dijon vinaigrette)and hearty, healthy soups (caramelized carrot and fennel) set Chef Laura apart from other caterers. She is a pleasure to work with and listens to her clients. Her goal is to prepare creative, nutritious, organic meals that appeal to a wide range of palates. She succeeds at this. Your guests will appreciate your fine "taste" in selecting Chef Laura.

Chef Anthony is top notch. He didn't hold back on anything for my party. He is extremely professional and can ease your mind when planning your event. He's fully equipped with a great staff. His knowledge of current cuisines along with which foods compliment each other is unmatched. The food is ridiculously delicious! You will not be disappointed when choosing him to cater your event. I'm looking forward to Chef Anthony catering my wedding in a few months. People are still talking about how good the food was at my last event!

We met Nicholas through some mutual friends, he brought food to a party and we were hooked from the very first mouthwatering bite! I have not tried a food from Nicoletta's that I haven't absolutely loved. His service is outstanding and nothing less than professional, he doesn't take shortcuts, and will do everything he can to try to make your ideas come to life. His events are downright gorgeous, the man has an eye for decor and set ups, every last detail is checked and rechecked. His home delivery service is GENIUS, and I don't remember the last holiday we actually cooked for because of his amazing business! I recommend him to EVERYONE, I come across so I will now recommend him to you!

The JP design team was a fantastic team to work with. Aundrea was able to execute my vision perfectly. She and her team took the time to understand my vision and style and worked very closely with me to deliver exactly what I wanted, while still staying within my budget. They were responsive, detail oriented, professional and graceful throughout the whole process and the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend this company to any bride looking for beautiful décor, styling, or food for their wedding.

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.

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 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.
