Kevin helped me come up with an amazing menu for my husband's 60th birthday. I had never used a caterer before and I was not disappointed. His helpers arrived on time, served the food which was delicious and even helped keep the dirty plates picked up. They were very professional. I will use his services again.

Mark and his team catered my niece's christening reception @ the Gite Gallery in April 2018. The Gite Gallery has preferred caterers; however, I never heard from either caterer after contacting them. Upon contacting Mark, I explained that a friend of mine had attended an event where his team caterer the food and raved about it so I felt it was kismet that we linked up on Thumbtack. I also explained to Mark that I live in northern Virginia, and that I would need a caterer to facilitate most of the interaction with the Gite Gallery. Mark hosted a tasting the week of the reception for my mother and I listened in over the phone. She RAVED about the food! Every item Mark brought out was better than the next! I received the same rave reviews from the 50 people that enjoyed the passed hor d'oeuvres and heavy appetizers over the 3.5 hour period of the party. His lovely wife served as the TABC bartender. We provided the wine, water, and sodas and she served our guests. The money I spent on the event was well worth it and the Gite Gallery owner is even planning on using Mark and his team for future events. Mark will also be the caterer of my rehearsal dinner and wedding (once the date and man are secured 😀) . It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mark, his lovely wife and his staff. His impeccable attention to detail is evident through the presentation of his food and options for seating at a venue that was extremely tight and didn't necessarily accommodate for seating. If you're looking for a caterer with years of experience and reasonably priced with attention to detail and the most AMAZING food, Dine Catering and Events should be your first and ONLY option!

We hired Kelli with Arcodoro after meeting several other caterers. She was well organized, personable and we felt that our wedding reception was her top priority, no matter how many other clients she may have had. She met us at our reception venue and asked us questions about what we wanted our day to be like and came up with so many ideas that we would have never thought of. From our first meeting we liked Kelli and felt very comfortable with her. She only had two months to put our reception together and never made us feel like that was an issue. She helped us come us with a menu that was varied and delicious and was beautifully presented! The chef made a fantastic pumpkin ravioli with a cream sauce that was the hit of our reception! Kelli and her staff went above and beyond in setting up our venue and making it look even more beautiful that we had imagined. They set up all of the tables from tablecloths to decor to the lighting of so many candles. Our cake table and guest book table were simply amazing and Kelli even took charge of setting up and arranging our cupcake cake because the cake vendor arrived too soon and the cake table was not ready yet. Our cake looked EXACTLY the way we wanted it, even though Kelli had only seen a picture of it one time. She was the go to person for all of our other vendors and she made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. The staff was awesome as well, and everyone with Arcodoro made sure that my bride and I were taken care of all evening! We truly felt like everything was under control and we were able to be the guests of honor at our reception. Kelli is not just a wedding caterer, she does it all...and makes it look effortless. That's the kind of service that I will recommend to everyone we know. Kelli, Thank you for everything you and your staff did to make our wedding day the best day ever for both of us! The venue looked fabulous, the food was great and all of our guests just raved about what a great time they had! We heard over and over that it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to. YOU ROCK and we can't thank you enough for going above and beyond for us and allowing us to enjoy our reception and guests without worrying about a thing! You provided us with personal service from start to finish and we won't hesitate to contact you again next time we need the level of service you offer. Mollie and Kimberlie Hines

My wedding food was a hit! Keif's dishes tasted like home-cooked meals rather than normal bland wedding food which is why I loved Keif! We had baked chicken, green beans, rice, and fish. The menu varied so everyone got a little bit of what they wanted. The price was also very cheap compared to most catering companies for 200 guests. Lastly, we paid for two extra servers/waiters and they were also not pricey compared to other catering companies. Please do not look past Keif's Catering when planning your wedding! He is the best caterer with the best attitude and best wedding food. Thank you Keif and great luck with all your future endeavors!!

I have had the pleasure of being at several events that Chef Devown has catered? The food always is excellent no matter what he is serving the food is very delicious. My favorite of his many dishes is the shrimp and grits. The Chef is very professional and has a keen eye for creating flavorful foods. So I would recommend him if you want great food, service and professionalism for your next catering, birthday or just for any personal meal plan. You will not be disappointed!!!!

Having Silvana’s Kitchen cater our party was a good decision. The food was exactly as requested and was delivered on time. Everyone was overwhelmed by the beautiful fruit and vegetable trays. The sauces were appreciated extras. Silvana was very accommodating. I plan on using her catering the next time I need one. Thank you, Silvana for making everything easy.

If you are searching for a reliable caterer with a A+ Food, this will be by far your best choice. Hired Qmami Grill for our event. Jonathan was supporting us for setting up the whole event including tables etc. Thanks a lot. These guy´s, who was working as chefs oversea as well, really know what they are doing and you can taste the devotion for their work. The food was just amazing, our guest were impressed about the food quality and we will offer that high quality of catering on our next event again with Qmami Grill.

our food truck experiance with sabor venezolano was perfect! They showed up right on time and everything went exactly as expected. Everything from the booking process which was super simple and they were very informative about different types of catering food truck food they could do and then when they showed up everything went perfect. Everyone loved the food they had tons of variety and it was absolutely delicious the food came out fast as expected with a food truck but my friends absolutely love the experience. We booked them for a pool party and would totally do it again.

      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.
