We decided to use Greenbluff Fresh Catering company after we met with the owner just once. After that we had a taste testing to help us pick out what we wanted to have catered. Everything was delicious and we were happy with our decision.

Went to a party hosted by the catering company. It was a blast! The dogs were way tasty and I tried very hard to get the secret sauce recipe...but never got it. I will buy another Alpha Dog to continue my research.

Sicily in Spokane catered our daughter's wedding this summer and they did a fantastic job! Chef Roberto helped us plan the perfect meal from appetizers to the main course. The Mediterranean menu was authentic, delicious, and unique. No other caterer was able to fulfill our requests. The day of the wedding they were on time and worked efficiently and our guests loved Roberto's gregarious personality. We highly recommend Sicily in Spokane.

    I met Jen for coffee and explained what I was looking for with regards to food for my wedding and she assured me we could do it anyway we wanted to. We chose a theme and let her run with it. The day of my wedding I couldn't have been more thrilled when I saw how beautifully she had displayed each dish and how accommodating it was for various types of people with dietary needs. Everything I ate was delicious. Aside from that I never felt I had to worry about how things would turn out or whether we would have enough for our guests. I would recommend Jen to anyone looking for a caterer for any type of event!

    Saphire Catering was exceptional and the food was amazing. Brian had a great menu to choose from and was on time and had plenty of food. The staff and parents were delighted and I would highly recommend Saphire Catering. I have used this catering serves multiple times and would continue to use them. If you want great food and someone that will work with you Brian is the right guy.

    people ive worked with in the past have been very happy with my work.

    About

    You are what you eat. How many times have we all heard that line? We all know we need to be eating better food. Freshly prepared proteins and vegetables are full of fiber and healthy fats. But that takes planning and organization, and it's way easier to grab fast food or a frozen meal. Do you want to change your patterns but don't want to do the work? Hire me, and I'll do it for you. I will shop for groceries, do the prep, cooking and portioning, so all you have to do is grab, reheat and go. You get to feel good about your choices and your body. I offer personal chef services and catering. References are available. I have been serving the Spokane to Coeur d'Alene area since 2003. I am a former restaurant owner/manager and a culinary school graduate.

    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.
