Paul and Stephanie were the caterers for our wedding reception this August. They did a really fabulous job putting together a menu that was perfect for a summer event. Their pricing was fair and affordable and they were receptive, friendly and conscientious. We'd recommend them highly!

Chantel and her team did an outstanding job of catering our event. The food was delicious (cooked to perfection and nice and hot with many choices), the service was great (the ladies were all warm and friendly) and the set-up and clean-up was flawless. I received many compliments from guests regarding the food. They will most certainly be my caterers of choice the next time the need arises and I would highly recommend them!

Pacific Northwest Catering provided us with hors d'oeuvres for a happy hour reception we hosted. It was the second time we hosted this particular event, and we received numerous comments that the food was better than last time. The presentation was great and the wait staff was professional, friendly and attentive. Compared to other caterers, the prices were quite economical. We had a great experience and will definitely use them again.

This is the second time I have hired Bonnie in the last year and she's THE BEST I've worked with. She catered our large BBQ/dinner party and grilled unbelievable ribs and made side dishes that all the guests were raving about. I'm pretty sure she ran out of business cards at the end because everyone kept asking her for her contact info. Would DEFINITELY recommend without hesitation. I now have her contact info saved in my phone as she is my go-to caterer for future events.

Sanja reached out to me within an hour of my request for caterers. She sent me a full proposal with menu items, cost break out, and everything I could possibly need. She worked with me for hours on end, revising the proposal 4 times to meet my needs. She was patient, kind, flexible, and so helpful! She has stayed in constant contact with me, answering every question within minutes. Although they were over my budget, because of their diverse menu, and especially her customer service, I recommended to my Market Manager that we spend the extra money. I'm so excited to entertain our clients next week and I know I won't be disappointed!

When it came to food for our wedding, that was the part my husband wanted to choose. He is a chef, so it really meant a lot to him that our menu was phenomenal. After venue searching at resorts, we became discouraged with their preset menus with typical wedding food. We then decided to go with a venue where we could hire a caterer. Once the venue manager found out my husband's occupation, she immediately referred us to Twist Catering, stating they were for "foodies." We live here locally, so we were able to visit them for a tasting. It was out of this world. Chef Joel prepared everything for us, as discussed each menu item with us. We met with him numerous times, he helped me with the set up of everything, suggestions, he was there every step of the way for us during the wedding planning process. He even stopped by at the wedding to check on us. And the final menu chosen for the wedding was insane. I'm at the age where a lot of my friends are getting married, as well as attending weddings & all of the guests commented on how exceptional the food was. My husband & I have both worked in restaurants for many years, and know good service can be difficult to find. The food was delivered promptly, and the servers & bartenders were on point. They constantly checked on myself, as well as my husband & his family to keep our drinks full. Between the food, the exceptional service, & the kind treatment we received, it was truly memorable.

    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!

    Jackson’s catering was amazing! I had a celebration for 80 people and had no idea what I wanted to serve. Jackson gave me ideas of what might be good for the function we were hosting and I let him take over the menu! The food was incredible and we had a number of guests going back for seconds in addition to asking about who catered the food. We even had one guest post on Facebook that he had an excellent dining experience and said the chef was GREAT! Jackson was extremely well organized, timely, and also flexible with our schedule. I felt very comfortable in letting him “run the show” because it was evident that he knew what he was doing and it was nice for me to be able to enjoy our guests rather than worrying about the orchestration of the meal and appetizers. His presentation was wonderful. I had described the type of atmosphere I was going to decorate the venue in and he even accommodated and worked with that in the way the food was displayed. The portions were generous and everyone left with full stomachs! I’ve hosted a number of catered events in the past and this experience was by far the best one I’ve had!!

    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.
