We loved Ed! Not only was the food DELICIOUS, but the service was outstanding. Ed is a real people person, and every visit we had felt comfortable. Ed and Amazing Caterers catered for my wedding on Oct. 7th 2016. All my guests loved the food and variety Amazing Caterers offer, and I even had the chefs checking on myself; always asking if I needed anything throughout the night. Ed also went above and beyond for us, and got us a quote and set up for flatware 3 days before the wedding when a crisis had hit! Thank you Ed, and thank you Amazing Caterers!!

Tatering has left an everlasting positive outlook on us of catering food. They may have set the bar a bit higher now than others. His team is very professional and so polite. The venue we used even called me begging for his contact info. Her reason was that they we the most professional and organized company that they've seen in 24 years.

We enlisted the catering services of Chef Cassy for our house blessing that was held today. Our menu consisted of chicken tetrazinni, green breans, and cupcakes. Chef Cassy arrived on time with the food and made preparation for the set up. She made sure that everything was in order before she left our home. Our guests wanted to know who prepared the food because it was awesome! I would highly recommend Chef Cassy ' s services to everyone I know.

I work in sales leadership for a Fortune 100 global software company and hired Jared Pierre to cater both food & bar for a Customer & Prospect reception we held at our office. Prior to the event Jared was terrific at offering food suggestions for tray service hors d'oeuvres and he had plenty of beverage options from the bar, both alcoholic and non. His staff was professional and courteous, set up and clean up went well, and we will use Jared Pierre for future events.

Tony Teems and his business Chef’s Like It Hot have been first class in every possible way. Tony and staff have been catering meals for the Frisco Roughriders for two seasons now. As a person Tony has been professional and has been up front in his handling of all business matters. If there have been any problems Tony has handled them in a timely matter and has gone above and beyond to adjust his schedule accordingly. Tony’s quality of food has been second to none and is a big reason why we decided to use him for a second consecutive season. He always has a good variety of food and has ample amounts of food for our players and staff. He is more than willing to accept requests and will work within reason to accommodate them. Lastly and more importantly Tony is a straight forward and honest person. He goes above and beyond to set up and tear down anything that would be required for the catering event. Tony comes in and does his business and then leaves. He does not get off task easily. It has been an absolute pleasure

Charles was very professional and responsive. He gave me a good deal and customized our menu to accommodate vegetarian options. The food quality was great and several of our guests asked for Charles' contact info. My husband also said their salsas were better than any of the locally made salsas he buys from central market. Great job! Satisfied customer.

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.

Not only did Islanders provide my event with quality food and service - they helped me to locate other food trucks that would be free to work our event on relatively short notice. Highly recommended!

I used The Bite's catering services 2 weekends ago for my father in laws 70s birthday party. We were all so impressed with their food and quality of service. We chose their American Affairs Menu buffet style and it did not disappoint! We loved that Chef Evan through in our menu his mini spinach and cheese tarts. It was a wonderful little detail that made the party even more special. Him and his wife are a young vibrant team. Def will be using them again!

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.

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 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.

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.
