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.

If I could give 6 stars I would. Working with Leslie was so easy! Usually the breakfast/lunch part of our events is the most time consuming and stressful, but for the first time, I wasn't freaking out. She was incredibly prompt with quotes, answered all my questions (no matter how stupid), and thought of everything before I even asked. I'm always nervous about catering since I've had some horror stories with incredibly late caterers. Not them! They arrived an hour early, prepped, and we had an excellent breakfast. My office is notorious for being incredibly picky when it comes to food, and all I heard around the event was how amazing the food was and how friendly and fantastic the chefs were. This was a first for us! I'm afraid they're going to see a lot of us in the future, and I can honestly say that one of the reasons my event went so smoothly is due to Fabulous Affairs.

Thank you!

Planning our event in 2 weeks, I was afraid I wouldn't have a good choice of caterers. Laura was prompt and helpful in getting everything to me. Her staff was super friendly and kind. People raved about the food, which was delicious and presented beautifully. They left our house clean as it was and we even lucked out with a few leftovers. I would recommend Laura to my friends.

Bon is my go-to caterer, period. She has catered an annual party for 60+ people for the last 3 years. She also did a more intimate gathering for a sit-down dinner for 20. I have also sampled her personal chef work through a friend. Regardless of the size of the event, Bon creates delicious, beautiful food, and she and her team are the height of professionalism. To top it all off, they do an amazing clean-up job! Working with Bon is easy and so enjoyable. You will be thrilled with her work!

I can't say enough about how great Diva B's Kitchen is!!! I have used Diva B's Kitchen for several events with my sorority and she always delivers high quality food that is delicious and satisfying. Balena is always willing to work within whatever budget I have to offer a variety of items to appease my guests and cater to all diets. She quickly responds to messages/texts/calls and was so patient, especially when dealing with changes to the menu. Diva B's Kitchen is my go-to caterer and she should be yours too!!

Troy catered our wedding with brisket, ribs, chicken, and sides. People come up to me a year and a half later asking who did the catering and complimenting the quality. My memory of that day is a blur, but the juiciness and flavor of that meal is clear. We could not have asked for better service, better food, or a better price.

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.

I hired the Ninjachef (Martino) for a gallery opening and event I was having in my art gallery. I had reconnected with him at another catered event they were catering and I had to meet the chef! I knew then I needed this team for my event. I have been completely pleased at the creative menu's and how custom and inviting everything was displayed. The food was absolutely spot on and many clients still talk about the food catered by Ninjachef and his wonderful team.You can not go wrong with hiring Ninjachef (Martino) for any size event you have! I promise. One truly satisfied client!

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.
