These ladies were great. They showed up on time, got things setup on time and were quite personable throughout. All the attendees of the party raved about the food and asked where I found the caterers. Several of them inquired for their contact information as well. Thank you for doing such a great job and for helping my event come off in stellar fashion !! Dallas Stewart

I've been a bit remiss in posting this review. Chef Noah prepared an absolutely fabulous New Years day meal for my family & me (6 ppl). I was totally taken back to my childhood in East Texas. Everything was cooked to perfection. A true southern cuisine. We had more than enough food for our dinner. In addition to leftovers for the next day, I was also able to freeze the remaining food for a later date. My husband took the leftover dessert (peach cobbler/w lots of crust) to work & shared with his colleagues. Several of them are still commenting on how delicious it was. Chef Noah's quoted prices are quite reasonable. I was very impressed with his effort to keep me up to date on all related matters. Everything was delivered timely & according to our contract. He even took responsibility for a minor miscommunication on my part. I will definitely use him again & highly recommend him. Try him, you will not be disappointed.

Kim Hester and her team were completely professional and gave top notch service! I had Fanfare Events cater my wedding... For a day that was stressful to plan, she made it easy! We also had a venue that was less than vendor friendly but Kim didn't sweat... She went above and beyond to problem solve and give us our dream dinner! My guests couldn't stop raving about it! Thanks Kim! If you want awesome catering and impeccable service, hire Fanfare Events!!!!!!

My husband and I had an excellent experience working with Justin and crew and Crave Catering. I requested a plant-based menu with the addition of salmon and the guests couldn't stop raving about the delicious food! My expectations were more than met regarding food quality & creativity, professionalism, and overall organization. Thank you for helping to make our wedding a truly memorable day!

My business event was well taken care of by Mollie and the team at Market Street Catering. They delivered the food on time with everything needed to serve my clients. Everyone was impressed by the selection of food - especially the steak kabobs -they were so tender (very hard to do with catered food)! I recommend them for all my clients for their parties, weddings and events.

Chef Brad produced a fine meal (the crab salad and clam chowder were exceptional). The portions were enormous. Our only criticism was the pace of the four course dinner: it could have been slower and more leisurely. Then again, perhaps that much food just took longer to consume.

    Jeff was very professional and detailed oriented. We have utilized Jeff's services on two very special and important occasions. First occasion was a 60th birthday party with sixty guests for a formal sit down dinner. The appetizers, salads and entrees were beautiful presentations. The second occasion was a week long 90th birthday celebration in a lodge on Samish Island. Jeff provided meals for three out of the six nights. Again, his presentation of all meals was exceptional. The food was incredible and I can't say enough for his imagination and inspiration while planning our events.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
