We had a two-day event in Austin. Johnny's team arrived on time with setup and food that our attendees really enjoyed. Johnny worked with me to address some late allergy and diet restrictions. Price was well below the bids I received from Austin caterers. Extremely happy with the job they did.

Service and food were fantastic. Joyce was on time and great to work with. She also allowed to take left over food home, unlike some caterers. The Brocolli Alfredo was awesome! Would definately recommend using her for any occasion.

I was very pleased with the service. Seeing how it was very last minute we've contacted Brinont Fusion Cuisine, they catered the food beautifully. They served at our baby shower, my husband and I contacted them to make orders within a week before the baby shower. They provided this homemade potatoe salad that was very unique and out of this world! Amazing! We also ordered drinks, and German chocolate cake. Not every one like German chocolate so I figured I'll have some cake to take home. Wrong! To my surprise everyone demolished the cake! Aside from the baby shower, Brimont also provided spaghetti for dinner one night for hubby and I. It was amazing! I'm not your typical spaghetti fan, far from one. But I decided to give it a try seeing how it's hubbys #1 fave dish. Finger licking good! Not too spicy, not too sweet. Honestly, it's the best spaghetti i ever tasted. I gave them 5 stars because I was very pleased with professionalism ,service,and creativity.

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.

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!!

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 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.
