Dine catering did an excellent job catering our retirement Luau. I contacted them less than 2 weeks before our event ( because other caterers I had been dealing with were dragging their feet or not following through!) and luckily Dine had an opening. Mark got back to me immediately with a sample menu, prices, everything we needed.He came to our house, made suggestions, we signed on and were good to go! His wife, Louise, tended the tiki bar, made excellent drinks, and helped with set up, decor, etc. Mark , Louise and Francisco all made sure that the food was hot, ready and plentiful. It was all delicious. We had a roasted whole pig, Hawaiian shrimp cooked outside , side dishes, a delicious lime and coconut desert and lots of tropical cocktails. At the end of the evening they put all the leftovers in our containers, packed up everything , and left the tiki bar till the following morning as we were still partying! A bonus was that we were able to buy all the liquor and drinks , then Louise mixed and served them so we did not have to pay a ridiculous amount per person for liquor. Several of the party goers raved about the “feast” , the great drinks , and we all had a great time. Everything was done professionally and on time, at a reasonable price. I definitely recommend Dine catering - call them first! You won’t be disappointed!We will use them again!

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I threw an Open House Party for our new office and told Lori it would be for 80-100 people. I told her I wanted good food but cocktail hour style. She helped me decide on dishes that pleased everyone AND looked/tasted wonderful even after sitting for a few hours. She went above and beyond to deliver everything I needed. She even came by the office to preplan

Amazing!! Service, quality of food, presentation, professionalism EVERYTHING! Chef Keif and his team did our wedding Sep 1 and we could not be any happier with using his services. The food was delicious and his presentation was on point! Chef puts his heart into his food and you can taste it no boring wedding food was served, everything was fresh and hot like being served in a restaurant. If you need a caterer for any event he comes highly recommended.

We had the BEST engagement party ever, mainly due to the efficient planning and preparation done by Pamela and Vanessa. They set up the pianist, who was awesome, the caterer, who also was awesome, the wait staff,bartenders and florist. Everyone was dressed professionally and did their duties to the fullest. Pamela and Vanessa met all of my requests, and excelled in making everything go smoothly. She also provided all of the glassware and dishes, so no clean up for me! Our guests couldn't stop complimenting the whole arrangement. I will definitely use them again if the need arises, and highly recommend their services for any party. Thanks again Dream Events!

Daniel has catered more than a dozen events for us ranging from a dinner party for 8-12 to a cocktail buffet for 100+. Obviously we think he is great. Food is always delicious and anything but standard fare. I almost hate to give this glowing review because it just makes it harder for us to book him!

Chef Devown was a consummate professional, and the entire process from start to finish was fantastic. Communication between us was prompt and professional. We were able to easily come up with a great menu within our budget . He showed up on time and completely prepared - and the meal prep was done without any thought or effort on my part. The food was amazing! My guests are still talking about it. I would not hesitate again to hire Devown for any dinner party or private catering event.

He came in with a team to prepare a special 5 course dinner with wine pairing for 10. It was amazing. I didn't really give any specifics other than allergies to seafood. He prepared a beautiful appetizer for us to have while socializing in the living area, then a starter, salad, main followed by dessert. Perfectly paired with various glasses of wine. It was the relaxing in home gourmet experience that we were looking for.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
