We worked collectively on creating a menu with a very narrow timeline. The chef was exactly on time, was well equipped, organized and the food was perfect. I would be delighted to have Luke Keller as a chef and caterer for all our entertaining. Our 50 guests enjoyed every morsel: Luke is personable and a great asset. K. Allison

I recently held a retirement party for my husband and myself and hired Meat and Greet for the event. What I wanted was a casual meal and one where I didn't have to do anything but mingle with my guests. Meat and Greet came through for me. All of my guests were quizzing me about the caterers and where I found them. The food was absolutely delicious and even though I didn't get to eat right away, too busy socializing, by the time I got a plate, everything was still hot. The servers were polite and friendly to my guests, it was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this company to anyone.

Cindy & Steve were amazing! They are personable, FUN professionals! Our wedding day went so smoothly! Steve's clear voice was perfect for the ceremony and announcements throughout the day. Our guests loved the songs they played. Cindy made a timeline for our special day and helped ensure that our vendors and myself were informed about any plans or changes if they came up. Our wedding day was so special and enjoyed by all our guests and the wedding party because we could just relax and enjoy the beautiful day!

Nina was very professional, responsive and made me feel comfortable with my purchase from start to finish. I’ve interacted with other caterers and none compare to Spiced Lavender. Their staff showed up at the agreed time to make sure everything was set up before my guests were to arrive. The food was soooooo delicious we were afraid we would run out. But we never did!!!! Overall, Spiced Lavender was very professional, punctual, and customer service oriented with delicious food that made my event go smooth and kept my guests happy.

The Bite Catering is a class act! I couldn't be more pleased with my experience working with them for my annual summer party! From my first contact with them to wrapping up the final details, they were always prompt in responding to my phone calls or email messages with answers to my questions. The Bite Catering offers a wide selection of menu items, and they did a fantastic job of creating a personalized menu consisting of a variety of hors d'oeuvres that I had in mind while keeping the cost in line with my budget. They also were very accommodating when I told them I had dietary restrictions that needed to be met. The day of the party, everything was ready on time. Not only was the food beautifully displayed, but also everything was delicious and very fresh. I was very pleased that the food was left on display for the guests to enjoy, with plenty of time to go back for more, and not removed quickly after the guests went through the serving line the first time. The extra food was nicely packaged and sent home with friends and family after the party. I experienced nothing but professionalism and quality in my dealings with The Bite Catering. I heard from numerous guests about the great service provided by all the serving staff during the party. I would not hesitate to use them again for future special events requiring a caterer.

I was impressed with Kim’s professional expertise, and have also had several conversations with her about her years of catering experience, from private dinner parties like mine to weddings and conference events for several hundred people. I would recommend Kim and her company “Provisions” to anyone looking for a new resource for personalized and delicious catering.

    Gabrielle catered my baby shower and it was absolutely wonderful! The food was delicious! Even the meat eaters were raving about the food (especially her jackfruit 'chicken' and waffles)! 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 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.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
