We hired Kniseley Catered for our 3/25/17 wedding and were extremely pleased with their service. Robert was always prompt in responding to my emails and worked with us to customize our menu. In February, I realized I needed to also have my rehearsal dinner, which was the night before, catered since we were in Canyon Lake and Robert and his family pulled through with an amazing fajita bar! Our family knows Mexican food and we received so many compliments on how good our food was! We served BBQ at our wedding and again received nothing but positive feedback. Robert and his family went above and beyond for us and were very friendly and personable with our guests. We would highly recommend Kniseley Catered!

Chef Bon has been coming to our house each week for the past three and a half months, and she has changed our lives! Not only is her food amazing, she has catered to our needs, and our health has improved greatly. After being diagnosed with diabetes, in a short three months, I have been able to lose 25 pounds, lower my blood sugar and cholesterol all by eating her yummy, healthy foods! She is very personable, reliable and really cares about us. I can't recommend her enough.

Shalamar was my wedding coordinator, caterer and officiant! She even helped me find a make up artist, DJ and an excellent bartender. She definitely went above and beyond, helping me get everything to the venue, helping set up and take down. It was a monster job and she definitely alleviated a lot of stress on my wedding day. The food was excellent and she made a gorgeous officiant! I highly recommend her for any and every aspect of your event!

I contacted Balena of Diva B's kitchen for an estimate to cater my dad's 70th birthday party. I was expecting approximately 100 guests, and had rented my neighborhood clubhouse. Here was my experience, and why I rated Diva B's Kitchen 5/5. Responsiveness: I received a quote, along with several menu choices within 24 hours of submitting my request. Value: Diva B's Kitchen was able to work well within my budget, and offered competitive pricing. Punctuality: On the day of the event, the food arrived on time. Work Quality/Professionalism: The food was AMAZING. Our catered menu consisted of Fried Catfish, Pork Chops, dirty rice, Mac and cheese, fruit skewers with dip, and deviled eggs. The food's temperature was good (hot was hot, and cold was cold). My Dad's party was a success. He kept raving about how good the food was, and even his guests were telling me how much they enjoyed the food. I definitely recommend Diva B's kitchen for your next event.

I cannot begin to say how accommodating and patient Eric was throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding. I am not the best responder to text messages or phone calls, but Eric was a champ! Prior to the wedding itself, he was able to help us find a DJ in our price range! The only piece of advice I would give someone was to maybe line up the details of what you expect to the "t". What we got for our tasting was amazing - it was pot roast. It was even delivered all the way out to the boonies where we live, but on my wedding day, it didn't taste the same (still was delicious though), and it wasn't as roast-y as you'd think. It was more soupy and the meat was cubed, not sliced or chunked. Not a big deal as no one complained about it, but I had a certain "vision" for my wedding meal. Despite this inconsistency, I would definitely recommend using Eric for any catering events. The value, responsiveness, and patience that Eric brought to my event was impeccable and top notch.

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.
