I was thrilled with Amazing Caterers! I had a birthday party for a group of 30 and I used Amazing Caterers, a caterer I had not worked with before. Thus, I was quite nervous. However, there was no need to fret. The food was fabulous and Kelly, the server, was truly exceptional. Since the event was such a success, I will be planning another one soon! Have already picked out the items from Amazing Caterers great menu!

Tatering catered a party we just had last weekend. Marc made it so easy and the food was delicious. I highly recommend everything we ordered, the brisket and chicken were moist and flavorful, and the potato salad and beans were excellent. Marc delivered everything right on time and told us everything we needed to know to keep the food throughout the party. I highly recommend Tatering and will definitely use them again. Thanks Marc!

Luke was amazing and he did an incredible job making a dinner party so easy and seamless so I could entertain our guests and enjoy the night. The food was over the top and he curated a perfect menu. He also put up with an 8 week old puppy nipping at his feet while he was cooking and it never bothered him at all!

We hired Chef Cassy to cater our Christmas party for approximately 50 people. We live in Coppell, Texas and evaluated several other caterers before we decided on Chef Cassy. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable, and the overall experience as good as it gets. She and her staff were very friendly, yet professional. Everything was hot, and prepared right in our kitchen. Her alligator balls were the hit of the party. She and her staff also did a wonderful job cleaning up afterwards. I would highly recommend Chef Cassy and we plan to use her again. Great job!

We had a pool party and rather than standing at the grill and taking orders, we decided to have the 4th of July party catered. So, of course we came to Thumbtack and searched for a caterer and we found JaredPierre. We got a quote and then reached out to Chef JaredPierre who walked us through the options. We came to an agreement and yesterday the food was delivered right on schedule. Sadly we didn’t get to meet the chef in person, but the food was amazing. Delicious, hot, and fresh. As usual we over-ordered and had lots of leftovers that all the partygoers were thrilled to take home as care packages (we kept most for ourselves). Next party - Chef JaredPierre is our caterer!

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.

We had a New Year's Eve party, and Mell's food was the star of the show. So delicious!! He was super-responsive throughout the planning process and helped us estimate the food almost to the exact plateful, so there was no waste but nobody left hungry. Mell is my new go-to caterer.

We asked Missy to cater our breakfast and lunch for a film shoot. And she went above and beyond. I had to make a bunch of changes in a short time frame because we were still in the planning stages of our shoot trying to figure out how many people to feed etc. and she handled it like a rock star! She showed up early, stayed within my budget, and made sure everyone was happy. She cleaned up after breakfast and lunch. She even brought Tupperware so we could take home the leftovers. Couldn't have been happier with the experience. Definitely, hire her if you need a caterer.

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.
