Top Dinner Catering related questions

No, you don’t! Caterers are equipped with all the tools they need for every service. Utensils vary with every service, but utensils will be ready and available in each one! For buffet services, you can also expect your caterer to be ready with their chafing dishes, utensils, and other assortments of plates.

No, they are not. Servers are always included for plated services since your food is served by course. However, buffet catering services may sometimes come with servers. It’s your choice! However, boxed catering services do not come with servers since food is all boxed up for you and your guests.

Caterers have set menus ready for you to choose from. You can also make your caterers know about food allergies you and your guests may have. They may also adjust their menu selections depending on these.

Yes, you can, but you need to make sure to communicate this with your Tasker beforehand. For plated services, food is exact for every guest. You may take home leftover food if you opt for buffet catering. However, don’t expect there to be leftovers all the time. 

Yes, you may. You can do this in-person or online to communicate menu items and other services you may want to add. You will also have to see them before they are set up so that you can ensure that everything is ready.

Your caterer usually just needs 15 to 30 minutes to set everything up. However, if you choose to have full-service catering, it’s best to give them up to an hour to set everything up. They aim to have everything ready 30 minutes before your guests arrive.

What do dinner catering services include?

An essential part of any dinner party is the food. You want your guests munching on food that they will be talking about for days, in a good way, of course. However, you don’t always have the time to whip up food for 20 in your kitchen. That’s why hiring a dinner party catering service is a godsend for your special events. Airtasker’s dinner catering services cover full-service dinners to simple boxed catering at your next event.

Treat your guests to a plated dinner service

If you’re looking for Easter or Thanksgiving catering service near you, you may want to opt for a plated service. This is a service type where you and your guests remain on your seats while the food is served to you. Food is usually brought out in courses with individual plates prepared for each person. It adds elegance and organization to your party, where your guests get to mingle and sip their wine in between courses. You can also hire a home chef if you want to experience a plated dinner service for more than one night. 

Have your boxed catering delivered

For more casual dinner parties, a boxed dinner catering may be perfect for the occasion. You can expect guests to receive individual boxes packed with their food for this service. However, if you’re planning a spontaneous dinner party, a dinner delivery from your favorite restaurant will do! It is an alternative to waiting in long lines for the buffet. This is also a drop-off service where the caterer leaves you with the food for you to distribute among your guests. If you want a boxed lunch every day, you can give meal planning and preparation a hand with another Tasker. 

Enjoy the buffet

Consider hiring a buffet caterer when you need Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter dinner catering near you. Buffet catering allows you to give your guests more options for their food. Here, food is arranged and laid out for your guests in a specific area. Guests line up and get their own food. For some caterers, you can add-on servers to assist your guests with the food. On your next holiday party, make sure that your home is holiday party-ready by having another Tasker decorate your home for Christmas.
