Luke did a great job catering a sit-down dinner for my daughter's bachelorette weekend. He responded to my initial inquiry promptly and was easy to communicate with via e-mail and text as we planned the menu. The girls wanted to float around the pool and enjoy a few adult beverages during the day, but wanted a restaurant-quality meal that evening without having to worry about dressing up or driving. Luke arrived promptly and served a great meal with a choice of lamb chops or filet mignon as the primary proteins. The meal included a sushi appetizer, salads & sides, and a yummy dessert of creme brulee. He cooked, cleaned, and rolled with the punches with this rowdy group of 8 ladies and they all had a great time and enjoyed the meal. We will definitely hire Luke again for other dinner parties at the house.

My then fiancé and I were looking for different vendors for catering and we knew we wanted something different. We wanted our guests to have more of an experience at the reception since our theme was quite unique. When we met with Cassy, she had A LOT of options and her food was beyond delicious! She was very nice, helpful and tended to our guests with superior customer service. She went above and beyond to make our reception extra special - as I mentioned earlier, our theme was unique so we asked if she could make "Butterbeer" from our favorite film, Harry Potter. Without any hesitation, she said "Absolutely! My kids LOVE Harry Potter!" All of our guests LOVED her food, sweet peach tea and of course the Butterbeer was amazing!! I would recommend her services to everyone and anyone. If you're looking for a caterer who will exceed your expectations and is professional in every aspect, Chef Cassy is your caterer! Thank you Cassy for making our reception an unforgettable experience!!

The low price (in comparison with other caterers) was what drew us to Jared Pierre Catering. Overall, we were pleased. During the tasting and initial discussion of the menu/event, Jared was very accommodating with our requests and was willing to make suggestions and adjust from the sample menu he sent. Communication from that point on was fairly easy. He replied within a professional time frame, but it often took a couple emails in order to get my question answered. An emergency came up the week before the wedding, resulting in Jared finding a replacement for the event. Because of this, things seemed to have gotten lost in translation and our menu items/quality was not exactly what we ordered. Nonetheless, guests still enjoyed it: One even said "this was the best food I've ever had at a wedding."

When I spoke to Chef Tony I immediately knew he was the Chef for my needs. With not enough time on my hands, he came in and made me look important to my company. Not only did he cater food, he with his creativity blew it out the park with the decor. If it weren't for Chef Tony teems, it could have been a disaster.I was serving 100 representative for my travel business and the numbers changed at the last minute ti 135 guests. Chef Tony handled it to a level that amazed me and my senior reps. My luncheon was a success and I'd like to thank you Chef Tony Teems like it Hot Caterers for a job well done. There are not enough stars to rate your services...my experience with your catering service is overwhelming.

Charles was very professional and responsive. He gave me a good deal and customized our menu to accommodate vegetarian options. The food quality was great and several of our guests asked for Charles' contact info. My husband also said their salsas were better than any of the locally made salsas he buys from central market. Great job! Satisfied customer.

City Kychen is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!! I have used them to cater events as large as 500 guests and as intimate as 4 friends. The food is exceptional but what really keeps me coming back and using them at my events is the amazing personal service I receive. If you are having an event give yourself a break call the awesome people at City Kitchen and check catering off the things you have to worry about. Brett Wiesner VP Sales Accel Imaging Systems

Islanders was a fantastic addition to the wedding my team and I worked on last weekend. Carrie, the owner, worked collaboratively with both our team and the bride and groom to get great food at a great price. The meals were fresh and delicious - the guests really enjoyed them & the customer service they offered was great. If you're planning to have food trucks at your wedding they are a must!

Cari catered an open house event that we had. She did an awesome job. Prior to the event, Cari made sure to stay in contact with updates and to confirm the headcount. The food was amazing. Our guests were so pleased and gave many compliments. The Martini Glass Humus Trio was a big hit! I would recommend The Divine Dish to anyone searching for an amazing caterer.

Such a professional, and even the layout of the food was beautiful. Would definitely have her cater another event!

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.
