I hired JC Cooks for a private dinner party for my boyfriends 50th birthday. The food was amazing. She did an appetizer, a salad and a great swordfish main entree. Not only was i happy with her but im waiting for the next party so i can hire her again. Joyce is very affordable on any budget, very professional and a lovely lady. Make sure and hire her for your next catering needs.

We were very pleased with Alvarez Catering for our fund raising event. We had an Italian theme and everyone loved the Chicken Parmesan and Vegetable Lasagna. They arrived when they said they would and everything went smoothly. Would recommend for good quality food and great work ethic. Very pleased!

This was awesome. We love dinner parties, but this year we've just had no time. And even when we did have time, we were wiped after the week, and couldn't face the cleaning, cooking, and cleaning again (dishes -- like a hangover without the fun drunk part beforehand). We decided to splurge and try a catering/chef service. We chose Chef Bonnie and were very pleased. Communication via email and phone was promptly responded to. She handled the somewhat complex dietary issues of some of our guests without batting an eyelash. She noted our requests and confirmed them, also dealing with my questions and minor changes perfectly. The day of the dinner she and her assistant arrived with everything they needed to cook an awesome meal. All we had to do was occasionally point out where some of our serving dishes and kitchen items were. When our guests arrived we were able to relax and enjoy a conversation for hours while Bonnie and her assistant dealt with all the food, served us, and then CLEANED UP ALMOST EVERYTHING. They even labeled and stored the leftovers in our fridge! Have I mentioned the food was delicious? It was! Rounding it all out, I felt we got good value for our money. I would not call it "inexpensive" but two people working hard for 6 hours (skilled labor at that), plus the prep time beforehand, and all supplies except the wine, salt and pepper? AND the ease of mind? Bargain. Oh yeah, almost forgot: She was very patient with our dogs, who spent most of their time under her feet until we finally put them away. Give her a try! I think you'll be pleased!

V and her team are incredible! Catering is one of the most expensive parts of a wedding, but she gave us a great deal for the value of food and quantity of people. I was so worried about not having enough food, V assured me that this would not be one of those weddings! She was right. We had so much food leftover that my family is probably still eating off of, lol. The crab-stuffed mushroom caps (that I unfortunately didn’t get to try) were a hit! As well as the macaroni 😍 Choose V! She won’t disappoint.

This was our first time having our Super Bowl party catered and my husband was skeptical. We had about 30 guests. Chef Vida was the hit of the party. She was very professional. She interacted with the guest as well as preparing the food onsite. I can’t tell you what entree the guests enjoyed most—gumbo, chicken, or fried fish. She is known for her fried fish tower. The fish was so good our guests would eat it before she could complete the tower. My husband and I were impressed with her professionalism, interaction with the guests, and how she cleaned the kitchen after the party. He pressed me to get on her calendar for next year before anyone else took that date. We are on the schedule.

Kareem was amazing! He helped me plan out the most perfect catering experience for my best friends bachelorette party - he and his wonderful wife dropped off and set up all of the food.

Outstanding talented catering chef who makes food not only with taste but style! You want to impress your guests, then serve them good food with help from Southern Hospitality Catering. I appreciate their variety of menus and most importantly being set up on time. They are my go-to-guys for all private parties especially birthdays and New Years!

Kris as a person is one of the most lovely, kind, courteous, flexible, helpful compassionate that my husband & I have ever had the joy of meeting. Kris as a chef is THE most delicious experience to the stomach as well as the eyes! She crafts her meals (of all sorts & variety) with so much care in mind as to ensure every scrumptious bite contains the best & freshest ingredients. She is a joy to work with. She listened to as much direction as I wanted to give & then did what she’s does to perfection...Kris fed our souls as well as our stomachs!!

Paola helped the Office of Sustainability with the creation of the Austin Green Business Leaders program, a new City of Austin program to help Austin businesses “go green.” She actively participated in stakeholder meetings and conference call and gave valuable feedback. She even hosted our press release where the Chief Sustainability Office and the Mayor spoke. She is a great resource for green restaurant practices and well as an inspiration for other restaurant. We really appreciated her expanding her composting program and using an abandon lot to create an herb garden. She truly gives back to her community and costumers. It’s hard to say how she could have improved her performance when she went above and beyond to help us and the program. She even volunteered to shoot a video which is on our website.

Chef Jessica and Chef Jake far exceeded my expectations when they traveled to Austin to prepare a brunch for a party of 9 ladies. Jessica had great ideas for the menu as some had dietary restrictions. She was punctual in responding to my emails and arriving at the event location. From the quality of the food to the presentation and the taste...nothing short of AMAZING!!! All were extremely impressed and I would definitely recommend using them!

    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.
