Noemi did the catering for my wedding 5/9/15. When we first met I knew she was going to be great. She is very professional and makes amazing food. She was very thorough in explaining exactly what we were going to get from her. And she stayed the entire reception and packed up the food for us. She even provided bartenders. I would highly recommend her and her staff. Everyone kept telling me how cool noemi and her staff were. Two thumbs up from me and my husband. Thanks again Noemi, Kyndra& Cody Helmick

We hired Mermaid Catering for our 10 year class reunion and were very pleased with our decision. From the start, Julie was flexible and responsive. She worked with our limited budget and designed a diverse menu that gave the appearance of a much more expensive spread. The food was delicious and people raved about it. Every detail was included down to sauces for each item, mini silverware, etc. The chalkboard tray was impressive, especially since our entire spread was disposable. Actually, the presentation overall was amazing. I would definitely recommend Julie and her team to anyone looking for a quality meal for 10 or 500!

My last year birthday party was catered by worth the wait and the food was excellent and it was more than enough for all of my guests. Worth the wait will also be catering my graduation party because the food was just that amazing. I also love the presentation of the food choices because they look so good. Worth the wait is definitely a quality business that I will use for all of my major events for now and for years to come!!!

I booked Harvey's Hot Dogs for several events at a corporate setting with over a thousand guests. They always arrived on time and gave prompt friendly service to my customers. I would hire them again.

My name is Janie Elisabeth Beck, Nik's Catering Catered my wedding. I was in need of some one who understood my needs and my tight budget. I didn't have much in the way of a budget. Nik's catering worked with my budget and the food was amazing. We did a self service buffet style cuisine. Nicole suggested Italian because it was cheap and we could get more for our money. I came to Nicole through My best friend Marilyn Watt Nicole is her daughter and she thought that she could help me. Three months prior to my wedding I sat down with Nicole and we went through some sample menus that she prepared for me and how many people I was expecting and set up a few tastings to sample some of the foods to make our final decisions. The day of the wedding things were a little hectic but once the people arrived and the vows were said we all settled up for a party. When we got to the reception hall the tables were set and the food was ready and every thing was good. I was most impressed with the quality of services that Nik's catering provided with a budget of six hundred dollars I fell like I got service of some one who spent thousands. with everything that I got for the services I was extremely happy with the services Nik's catering offered and would use thier services in the future.

My close friends and I had put together a Super Bowl party up in Williamsburg. The idea of getting it catered seemed to spark with everyone. I called Cassie and told her what the budget was. She said, "I'll put something together for you!" The Moe's crew was incredibly punctual and professional. The spread was AMAZING! Thanks to Cassie, we will be locking her down for every large party we throw together! I'm just mad that the football season ended, and we are just now trying this. Excellent work, Cassie! You are the BEST!

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.
