Mike was amazing to work with. He was able to accommodate a vegan option and was enthusiastic through the whole process. He communicated very well. And the food... It was amazing! We had the herb chicken and stuffed pepper options and everyone wanted seconds! The chicken was so moist & tender you didn't even need a knife to cut it and the pepper was full of flavor (he even offered toppings). If we have a large event we will certainly be using Just Good Eats!

I found Gristle through Thumbtack. I never used either company before and the result was amazing. I received a quote a few hours later, and booked a catering event to occur in less than 48 hours from the initial contact. Everything worked like a breeze, right down to the online payment.

I highly recommend Savour Catering and would give Natalia 10 stars of excellence. I hosted my company party at my home and she truly made this event stress free and my guest were beyond impressed. She is professional and personable. Her food and desserts were amazing. I'm already looking forward to hosting my next party and to work with Natalia.

I have worked with Amanda Bauer and Noble Chef Hospitality and Catering on several occasions for both corporate and community-oriented private parties. I have been consistently WOWED by their professionalism, presentation, attention to detail, and adaptability. The food is not only aesthetically pleasing, it all hits your taste buds with the most satisfying combination of flavors and textures, always cooked or served at just the right temperature. They have a knack for tailoring the menu to your specific event, theme, flow, etc., and they often include items that are delightfully unexpected and inspired. I simply cannot say enough what a wonderful experience it has been working with them.

The setup was fast and organized, the food was terrific! After the party, the remaining food was taken back to the restaurant, and when I came to pick it up the next morning, much of it had been thrown away, including the vegetables, meats, guacamole and chips. I did not expect that and it was disappointing that it was not communicated that those items would be discarded. Had I known that I would have just taken them in my car on the night of the event. All in all a great experience, I will recommend El Pastor to friends and associates.

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.
