Paul and Stephanie were amazing from beginning to end. From our first tasting, where we were able to try a wide variety of foods, we were so excited to work with them. The day of our wedding, they were on time, looked professional, and quickly prepped and set up so that food would be available as quickly as possible for our guests. The food was AMAZING and we received many, many compliments from our friends and family. Thank you SO MUCH! We will be recommending you to everyone we know for catering needs.

Thyme Well Spent Catering was outstanding and all we were hoping for! From start to finish Chantel was responsive and courteous. She provided a large range of options, was clear on all points, very willing to work to accommodate the needs of our event and her pricing was fair. The day of the event Chantel arrived on time and provided exactly what had been discussed. She not only spent the time to execute the delivery and ensure proper set-up, but remained to assure all was well and everyone was pleased. The feedback on the food was that it was DELICIOUS! :) Our organization was providing a luncheon for Veteran Patients and not all was as had been communicated. Yet, Chantel worked to adjust and accommodate, her genuine care and concern was evident. We would not hesitate to recommend or hire Thyme Well Spent Catering again!!

Francisco was absolutely brilliant! He provided the food for our wedding, and we couldn't have been happier. He worked effortlessly with our crazy schedule, arrived early, and delivered a stunningly delicious and simple meal just like we had asked for. If you want someone kind, quick to respond, and who goes above and beyond, go with K&F Catering!

Couldn't be more happier with my decision to go with Dogfather catering. Stephen went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went perfectly. He was more than happy to accommodate all our wants and needs and the whole process was stress free. Everyone loved his pizzas and the gourmet hot dog cart. Not to mention all his salads are delicious and a huge hit. Aside from his food, his staff is friendly and professional, they did all the could to make things run smoothly. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I still cannot thank him enough for all his hard work!

I was in dire need of a last minute caterer. Tara Helm not only came through for me, but she worked with me to exceed the expectations of our event. Food beyond excellent!

We had a high school graduation party in our backyard with about 95 guests, open-house style. Joy Max Catering set up a beautiful taco bar buffet with freshly skillet-heated corn tortillas, shredded beef and chicken and all the toppings, plus a fruit and a green salad. We loved the menu presented on its own stand for guests to see, plus each food item had a little description card on a stand. The buffet table truly looked very special. The food prep, set up, monitoring, and clean up was great. We were able to enjoy the guests, and knew the food was managed expertly.

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!

I have attended several events catered by Good Taste Unlimited. The business is careful to listen to the specific needs and requests of the host and is very accommodating. I found the food was excellent and the presentation lovely and appetizing. All events remained on track. The caterers checked in often to ensure all was going well throughout the duration of the events. These ladies are true professionals. The scholarship event which I attended far surpassed my expectations. They deliver a fun and creative menu. Their culinary artistry is masterful.

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.

We used 314 Pie for catering our wedding and we were very happy we chose them. They responded very quickly by email and phone whenever we had a question, arrived in plenty of time, and were very professional and polite serving guests. Also, they were able to serve all of our 100+ guests very quickly. The pies were very delicious, we and all of our guests were very happy. Highly recommend!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      Do you tip a wedding caterer?

      Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      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.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
