We were super lucky in finding Stephanie and Paul. They catered our wedding in an extraordinary way and they took care of everything!. They guided us since the beginning until the end with every doubt we had. They help us to select the menu for our budget not sacrificing the essentials for us and having a big variety of flavors. Instead of restrictions like others catering companies, they gave us more options on the menu with really affordable prices. We worked with them in a pretty easy way. Stephanie answered every email and always gave to me a lot of options in every question. They worked super professionally. The service and food were superb!. We received a lot of compliments about the amazing taste of the dinner. Everyone were delighted with the crab cakes, the stuffed portobello and the hazelnut crusted salmon. We highly recommend them. They had the best menu options for the prices, great customer service. And they can offer the full service and saving you extra vendors and stress.

Attended a family reunion in Renton, Wa a few days ago. A last minute decision was made and we had to hire a catering service to accommodate about 50 ppl with in a day! A close friend of mine recommended K&F Catering which she hired for her wedding. So, I decided to give them a shot and I'm so glad I did! Not only was the food delicious, but they made sure to have everything set up in a super clean and timely manner! Definitely recommend these guys to anyone near Renton!!

we enjoyed Nola's catering at a recent company event and Nola and her team were great to work with. Even with a tight budget and lack of adequate resources at the chosen location, she and her team exceeded expectations!

I recently hired Island girl catering to cater my wedding in Stanwood WA. Not only was my food amazing (we ordered prime rib, Rosemary chicken, garlic potatoes, strawberry walnut salad and rolls) but Carol was such good company. I could not have pulled this thing together without her. She helped me with timelines and gave examples to help me with planning. She also reminded me to not forget the little things. And when I did forget stuff (like ice) she provided it for me last minute. I could not thank her enough. She did so much for me on my wedding day, she was a huge part in making this thing happen and help make my wedding day special. I also let her pick out the two types of beer that we had and it was a huge hit! If you're looking for a catering company that will not only treat you like a client but a friend, you will want to hire Carol and her team.

Chef Emme Catering Co. catered a beautiful office Thanksgiving lunch for us in Downtown Seattle. It was very quick and easy to book the services and finalize a menu and required services. They were on time and efficient setting up. Most importantly, the food was the best catered food we've all tasted! We will be using Chef Emme again for our catering needs and recommend their services to anyone wanting quality service and food.

Mike did a great job catering a meal for my family (20 people). It was the first time both sides of the family were meeting, and we didn't want to have to stress about food. Mike brought everything by right on time with warming trays. Really made the evening go smoothly. The food was great! Mike had no trouble accommodating the gluten-free requirement. Be sure to ask about the flourless chocolate cake!!

I have hired Joy Max Catering for my wedding catering for 130 people. Our wedding was on budget and we had only 4 months to plan it. Joy Max Catering has worked with us based on our budget and we were able to pick a menu we wanted. We were able to add and subtract thins we wanted or didn't choose to have. When I first tried my herb roasted chicken, I was wondering how come I could never make a chicken like that. It was tender, juicy and lots of flavor. The food had flavor and it was very homemade & thats what we were looking for. Everyone who I asked about my food, they said it was excellent! I am glad I have met the owner Joy, she is a great person to work with and talk about food. She is very professional, sweet and very very hard working. I would recommend Joy Max for an outstanding ability to work with people, base their menu, arrange payments and also cook a deliciously tasty food. Thank you Joy Max for your services.

I absolutely adore Chef Dayo! She is so sweet and kind and was very accommodating with all of our questions and menu changes for our wedding catering. And her food is delicious! We didn't want to do standard wedding fare, and her southern/Caribbean food really hit the mark. The jerked tofu/chicken were fantastic, and the fried okra is to die for. I really wish she had a restaurant so that I could eat her food more often:) The only thing is that I wish her staff had made sure the groom and I had enough to eat before putting the food away and moving to the dessert course, but besides that everything was perfect and I would highly recommend her to others.

Cassandra and her team were amazing! She was so personable and such an ease to work and communicate with. The day of the event (a wedding) she showed up early and even helped us set up the venue before heading off to prep food. We opted for an itialian buffet and every dish was tasty, flavorful and spot on! I did select a couple gluten free options and having someone who is herself gluten free I think was a great choice! Cassandra knows just what to do with gluten free paths and our guests didn't even notice the difference. We will absolutely refer Cassandra to anyone in need of a caterer.

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.
