Emerald City catered our 20th anniversary party for 200 guests in Gas Works Park, Seattle. They were fantastic. They were flexible, super easy to work with, their food was delicious and beautifully presented, they provided even more than they had promised, they were excellent communicators and provided a turnkey operation from start to finish. I loved working with them, will definitely use them for our next event, and heartily recommend them.

I would without a doubt hire Thyme Well Spent Catering in the future, as well as recommend her services to others. In the planning of my wedding celebration, I had a lot of questions about the caterer part of the party. Chantel was extremely pleasant to deal with, always answering every question proposed and assisting to select a menu that would be perfect for our guests. At the wedding reception itself, she showed up well before the party began to place the final preparations on the food and decorate the caterer table in accordance with our selected colors. The food was wonderful and guests quite enjoyed the meal. Chantel went above and beyond helping in other areas to facilitate the party, to include cutting the cakes for guests. I was quite pleased with her services that evening, as she helped to make the party run smoothly and memorable for all in attendance!

We had a party with 22 people in downtown Seattle. Francisco was very responsive to the type of food we wanted and our budget. He was there at the right time, set everything up so that it looked beautiful, and was very nice to work with. The food was delicious and we got lots of compliments from guests during and after the party. I highly recommend going with K&F.

We hosted a dinner party for 10 at our home. Nola and her assistant Flo prepared an amazing meal, from appetizers through dessert. Nola was so easy to work with through the planning stages and had great ideas for how to optimize our home and time with our guests. As if the delicious food weren't enough, she also made sure the kitchen and dining room were clean before she left, which was an added bonus to an otherwise exquisite evening. I would highly recommend her and will not hesitate to call her again when we entertain.

Stephen catered our party for my daughter's highschool graduation. He and his assistants were awesome! First of all the pizzas were absolutely delicious. Our guests couldn't stop complimenting on how good the food was. He made the party special. He was engaging with the guests, explaining the different kinds and fulfilling requests. He was so wonderful to work with and kept our spirits up when the weather for a planned backyard event turned stormy. He was the best!

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!!

Gwen, you are an amazing caterer! Thank you! Yellow Bird Catering catered a buffet for my wedding reception and everything worked out perfectly. I was having a difficult time finding a caterer that was reasonable and willing to work with me. I kept getting frustrated by caterers by their lack of flexibility to get the meal we were wanting. That all changed when I talked with Gwen. She was friendly, understanding and willing to work with me. Her prices were reasonable and as soon as I said "wedding" she didn't charge her demeanor like the other caterers did. My reception had 200 guests and almost everyone of them complemented the buffet. I don't know how else to explain how satisfied I was...great food, great customer service, and reception dinner that went off without a hitch. I am so thankful I found Yellow Bird Catering!

Shauna was amazing to work with - she provided an incredible meal for our wedding and also took on the burden of supplying rentals. Everything went on without a hitch, and was a great experience! Late into our engagement, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. We saw the wedding as an opportunity to have a break from everything life has been throwing at us, and with Shauna's help it was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend reaching out to Entropy Cooks if you are looking for a caterer for your event. The food was incredible, the service was great, the price was more than reasonable, and the experience was everything we had hoped and more.

    We used Cassanda and her staff for a birthday party this last weekend and everything was delicious. We went with Mexican food and it was tasty and seasoned and just yum. Her pricing is fair, she was on-time and very friendly to all of our guests and even stayed awhile to enjoy the party. I will for sure be using her again.

    I am a foodie so when i saw fliers inviting for a free food tasting at Stella Maris Kitchen i could not miss it! I was amazed at the quality and variety of the food that was available!! Menu consisted of delightful African dishes, tasty Italian pastas, gourmet American burgers, salads, sandwiches etc. What i liked most was the fact that everything on the menu was the healthy version: no sugar or additives. I raved about them in the office and we had them cater for our Christmas party and everyone loved the food. They have since catered two company birthday parties and a recent send-off party for a member of my staff. The latter event was impromptu yet hot, freshly prepared salmon sandwiches, shrimp pasta salad, garden salad, Jollof rice and tasty sauteed greens for 50 people was delivered at short notice I will certainly recommend you try them!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
