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.

From the beginning, PNW Catering was great to work with! Al contacted me right away to discuss what I needed for the company holiday party I was planning. Over the course of a couple months, he helped me with food choices and revise things until our menu was finalized. The staff at the event was prompt, helpful and friendly. We ordered a variety of food and the Veggie Spring Rolls, Sausage Puffs and Gingered Chicken Cakes were particularly delicious and went quickly!

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!!

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.

Chef Olive is possibly the most creative person I know. That and her natural instinct about flavors make her possess the almost miraculous capability of turning any ordinary ingredients into a fine dish. Her creation always has a disarming simple elegance that reminds you of the best home cuisine, and a surprising sophistication that makes you want to taste it again, and again. From the raw ingredients to the final presentation of the dishes, the sight, the sound, the smell and the taste make having her cooking for my private parties the most delicious esthetic experience.

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.

Response time was that day to the next day - very quickly when setting the menu. Our food was brought promptly at the desired time and was set up so nicely! It was very festive and a beautiful presentation. The food was really good, many compliments were made. Thank you for the great experience!

Above and beyond. Spectacular! The quality of the food and creativity in design were both exceptional. Our group is notoriously finicky and hard on caterers as we have worked with many over the years. Plantiful Delights met our standards and more. Pressed for time to manage, I gave Crystal a lot of leeway in her selections for the appetizer vignettes that I cannot refer to as trays because they were so much more! She prepared off site, delivered to set up fresh just before guest arrived, and picked-up after the party for my husband's 50th birthday celebration at our home. I did not lift a finger except to pass out her business cards to so many of our raving attendees! And, of course, to sample most of the delectable foods she brought for us. Kudos Crystal. Well done.

I have been a guest at several private dinner parties catered by Jen from the Salted Fig. These parties are by invitation only and promise a culinary journey you won't forget- and they deliver! Jen's menus are creative, cohesive, and absolutely delicious. The meals always feel so personal and nurturing, like she knew exactly what I wanted to eat, even though she is cooking for 20 of us. I would highly recommend The Salted Fig for any catering needs, especially if you are looking to serve up quality, excellence, and passion with every bite!

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.
