I used Emerald City Cakes & Chocolates for a corporate luncheon. I selected this company via thumbtack and choose them after reading the reviews. We needed a "buffet style" delivery for 35 people. Paul and Stephanie were both very accommodating and responsive to our specific needs. We work in a secure area so had to meet them in the parking lot to pick up the food and it needed to be ready to serve from car to table. Everyone really enjoyed the food. I would recommend this company for future events. The cost was a bit higher than some of the vendors in the area; however, the reviews I read made the difference in my choice. I was able to pay them in cash to avoid the credit card fees and it was really a good-easy experience. Minimal stress for hosting a luncheon for 35 people. We will use them again. Our menu was a traditional turkey buffet (early Thanksgiving celebration) with mashed potatoes, yam, vegetables, stuffing, salad, and dinner rolls.

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!

Nola and her staff just did the catering for mine and my husband's wedding. From the first correspondence with Alie, everything was well thought out and they even handled all of our rentals. We requested a plated dinner for 80 guests and Nola and her team delivered perfection in the execution of serving our guests. We chose a Thai theme of flavors and the pork tenderloin was delicious. Her staff was friendly and very accommodating through our 5 hour event. If you want a caterer to execute your vision, I would definitely pick Nola's. Thank you Nola and her team! Kevin & Jeff

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.

We had Stephen cater our wedding on 8/29. It was by far the most painless process ever. From the get go, Stephen was a breeze to work with and removed all the stress from dealing with feeding 100 wedding guests. His price was very fair especially given the amazing quality of the food. Im still getting compliments on how delicious and fun the food was at our wedding! Will book Dogfather again for any future events!

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 would recommend Kiss Family Catering to any one looking for friendly, fast , efficient and delicious food. We used them for our Thanksgiving Luncheon at work and it was so good we booked them for our Christmas Luncheon as well. I highly recommend the smoked beef and the herb chicken! We will definately use them again this New Year!!

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.

Working with chef Patty at Fresh Every Thyme Personal Cef Service was the BEST decision I made when planning my family reunion! Our family likes to have fun during the day with various activities and come together for dinner every night. Patty worked with me to choose the menus for each night, she did the grocery shopping, much of the food prep, and then stocked our refrigerator. All we had to do was warm and serve! Saved so much time, energy and excess food. Thank you Patty for helping our family have the best vacation!

I love Urban Pantry's take-home meals! I am always on the go and do not have much time for cooking. Urban Pantry makes it so easy to just throw a healthy meal in the oven! We have been ordering paleo meals and they all taste AMAZING! We have also used their catering service twice now for two different events. They both turned out fantastic!

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.

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.
