What an wonderful experience I had in using catered comfort services! The food presentation was enticing and most of all delicious! The staff was attentive to all needs and went over and beyond their required service and were dressed appropriately for the occasion which was formal. I would not hesitate in utilizing their services again for any occasion!

They offer exemplary services and the food was unbelievably tasty. I can't thank them enough for doing double duty, when the cake cutters had a last minute emergency. I could not have asked for a better catering service. We didn't have to lift a finger they did everything including clean up!

I hired Lionel and Alexander for my wife's suprise birthday party. They were fantastic from beginning to end. My guests were extremely pleased with the service provided, great conversation, expectional food, and how well the evening flowed without any hiccups. Lionel was more than welcoming to help me pull off the suprise by blocking the driveway. Lionel gave a great speech about how I found his business and the planning process. Lionel also accommodated for a second birthday girl on our party and made her feel special as well. My guests took business cards and plan on hiring Lionel and Alenxander for future dinners. Great experience and I will defiantly do it again.

I can not say enough to recommend Lori Farris of Arcodoro and Gourmet Sardinia. I recently used their catering services for a very important Saturday evening, 80th birthday soiree, at my home; Lori helped me every step of the way. She was incredibly patient, innovative and creative as she worked within my budget; her recommendations were spot on!! She was calm in crisis (the party was almost canceled when the guest of honor was hospitalized the day before). She could not have been kinder and more professional! The food (sweet and savory hors d'oeuvres) was outstanding and server, Juan, was simply Superman! If you're having a gathering of any kind and want exceptional service and food, call her!!!

Keifer was great! I ordered food for 60 people for a luncheon after a funeral. I was not in attendance but was helping out to take at least one thing off the family. Keifer was super prompt in getting back to me and answered every single question I had with great detail and professionalism. I was a touch nervous since I was booking it so last minute and did not have time to taste test the food. The family RAVED about how good it was. They especially all loved the Cajun Chicken Alfredo and said everything was displayed so nicely!

If you've ever considered having a food truck cater your corporate event, give Kouzan's a try. Paul worked with us to create the perfect menu within our price range. The truck arrived on time and the service and food were both outstanding. I would highly recommend them for another event.

I have had the pleasure of being at several events that Chef Devown has catered? The food always is excellent no matter what he is serving the food is very delicious. My favorite of his many dishes is the shrimp and grits. The Chef is very professional and has a keen eye for creating flavorful foods. So I would recommend him if you want great food, service and professionalism for your next catering, birthday or just for any personal meal plan. You will not be disappointed!!!!

Honestly Chef Mark and his staff were so professional , the food and the creativity of the food was declious. He was professional at every point from the beginning to the end. EVERYONE at my daughter’s grad party was asking where did you find the Chef! All adults and high schoolers were very pleased with the food. I’m going to have Chef Mark over to my home for a girl’s night seafood cooking class in the near future!

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.
