AJ is a first class professional Chef! From the very first time I talked to him until the completion of the Party, he was always responsive and reassuring! The food he prepared were presented very nice! The taste were awesome. Guests were very impressed! He even prepared plates for our little young guests! He also offered his bar tending service when I was not able to get one. My daughter was very impressed at the way he communicates with everyone. His staff were great as well! The catering service and all requests we made were met over and beyond our expectations. AJ and his catering service will be our family caterer for parties from now on! Thank you so much AJ!

Roy Martins did an amazing job catering for our small home party to mark my sister's 60th birthday. The menu was well planned, food was good and it was prepared without fuss or disruption to home activities. We will definitely use Roy's services again. Thank you Roy!

Mark and his wife are fantastic!! Everything about their work is top notch. We are a home builder and have used their catering services for 3 of our events so far. When we first had them come in for a tasting, their setup was beautiful! Flowers and everything! I knew right away they were the caterers for us. They created menus based on what we were wanting and went above and beyond. Thank you!!!

I can not say enough to recommend Lori Farris of Arcodoro and Gourmet Sardinia. I recently used their catering services for a very important Saturday evening, 80th birthday soiree, at my home; Lori helped me every step of the way. She was incredibly patient, innovative and creative as she worked within my budget; her recommendations were spot on!! She was calm in crisis (the party was almost canceled when the guest of honor was hospitalized the day before). She could not have been kinder and more professional! The food (sweet and savory hors d'oeuvres) was outstanding and server, Juan, was simply Superman! If you're having a gathering of any kind and want exceptional service and food, call her!!!

Kifer and Keif's Catering were fantastic! We had a great spread for our Grand Opening and happy, well fed guests. In general, I was struggling to plan our party in Houston all the way from Portland, but Kifer was so easy to work with when it came to catering that I felt like everything else fell in line much easier after I booked him. Thank you!

Chef Devown was a consummate professional, and the entire process from start to finish was fantastic. Communication between us was prompt and professional. We were able to easily come up with a great menu within our budget . He showed up on time and completely prepared - and the meal prep was done without any thought or effort on my part. The food was amazing! My guests are still talking about it. I would not hesitate again to hire Devown for any dinner party or private catering event.

Chef B Services catered a corporate event at my work place which I was in charge of hosting. It was for 200+ guests so it was a bit overwhelming for me but Chef B & Tiffany's professionalism & expertise put me at ease. They took care of everything! It was spectacular to have a catering company take care of all the rental items & wait staff that we needed to pull off the event! Not to mention the food was DELICIOUS! I had guests talking all night long about all of the amazing hors d' oeurves being passed. The night was a huge success & it couldn't have been executed any better than by Chef B Services! We will be using them again in the future. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to ALL!

The CEO of our company arranged to host an outdoor dinner party at his home to honor visiting orthodontists from the UK. I was responsible for arranging the catering. Sallie was a delight to work with, and made my job so much easier than it could've been. Her food was outstanding and her professionalism was top notch. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a stress-free caterer. Our company will definitely request her services in the future.

I had the pleasure of dining with M.A.M. Divine Dining for my boyfriend's birthday. Mark came to our hotel and served us a delicious and beautifully presented five course meal. The dishes varied in taste and style and were perfectly portioned. Every dish was amazing; my two favorite were the avocado toast and the teriyaki salmon salad. Chef Mark was kind, and professional. He allowed me to submit a list of food that my boyfriend and I enjoy, and created a menu that was perfect for our taste buds. He even brought complimentary wine. We had a blast! I highly recommend M.A.M. Divine Dining for catering, family dinners, date nights, etc. and I look forward to using Chef Mark again and again!

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.

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.
