Laura, owner of Bittersweet Cakes and Catering, provided catering services for our wedding in July. We found Laura to be fabulous! She was professional with a friendly touch. She made recommendations that would suit a summer wedding. We felt at ease with all correspondence with her. When we had any questions, they were answered quickly and with great knowledge of what would go well with our reception menu. Her daughter, Jamie, did a wonderful job organizing the reception dinner. Jamie was also very polite to our guests by explaining dishes and greeting them with smiles. It has been a couple of months since our wedding and guests continue to rave about how good the food was. Laura also provided the cakes for our wedding. We loved our cakes! The personalized cake decorations were awesome and the flavors were delicious!

This was awesome. We love dinner parties, but this year we've just had no time. And even when we did have time, we were wiped after the week, and couldn't face the cleaning, cooking, and cleaning again (dishes -- like a hangover without the fun drunk part beforehand). We decided to splurge and try a catering/chef service. We chose Chef Bonnie and were very pleased. Communication via email and phone was promptly responded to. She handled the somewhat complex dietary issues of some of our guests without batting an eyelash. She noted our requests and confirmed them, also dealing with my questions and minor changes perfectly. The day of the dinner she and her assistant arrived with everything they needed to cook an awesome meal. All we had to do was occasionally point out where some of our serving dishes and kitchen items were. When our guests arrived we were able to relax and enjoy a conversation for hours while Bonnie and her assistant dealt with all the food, served us, and then CLEANED UP ALMOST EVERYTHING. They even labeled and stored the leftovers in our fridge! Have I mentioned the food was delicious? It was! Rounding it all out, I felt we got good value for our money. I would not call it "inexpensive" but two people working hard for 6 hours (skilled labor at that), plus the prep time beforehand, and all supplies except the wine, salt and pepper? AND the ease of mind? Bargain. Oh yeah, almost forgot: She was very patient with our dogs, who spent most of their time under her feet until we finally put them away. Give her a try! I think you'll be pleased!

Urban Cowboy provided a nice variety of appetizers and then tacos we chose through a previous food tasting (served from the food truck!). We chose for the tacos: smoked chicken, BBQ brisket, fried avocado, Siracha shrimp. Plus we had two sides, kale salad and roasted root vegetables. They even offered quesadillas for the kids. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Our guests loved it!!! We cannot say thank you enough. Chris & his crew made our night and they were very professional and easy to work with.

I cannot begin to say how accommodating and patient Eric was throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding. I am not the best responder to text messages or phone calls, but Eric was a champ! Prior to the wedding itself, he was able to help us find a DJ in our price range! The only piece of advice I would give someone was to maybe line up the details of what you expect to the "t". What we got for our tasting was amazing - it was pot roast. It was even delivered all the way out to the boonies where we live, but on my wedding day, it didn't taste the same (still was delicious though), and it wasn't as roast-y as you'd think. It was more soupy and the meat was cubed, not sliced or chunked. Not a big deal as no one complained about it, but I had a certain "vision" for my wedding meal. Despite this inconsistency, I would definitely recommend using Eric for any catering events. The value, responsiveness, and patience that Eric brought to my event was impeccable and top notch.

We've worked with Adrian twice, once for a Christmas Dinner and another time for a formal, German dinner. Both times he has gone above and beyond to provide to ensure the catering experience was great for our guests! Most importantly, everyone loved the food! As someone in events, there's always someone that complains about the food, but amazingly, everyone has been delighted both times! To top it all off, Adrian's is very affordable. I highly recommend hiring Adrian as your caterer!

I hired Diva B's Kitchen for my wife's birthday party in Houston, TX. Even with inclement weather that evening & the event 3 days before Christmas, Diva B's arrived and and set up hours before the event started. We planned for 75 guests and everyone raved about how flavorful and delicious the food was! Our guests also noted that when dinner was served, the food was hot and there was more than enough for 2nd's and carryouts. Diva B and her staff were very professional from the initial consultation, up to the event, and even sending a Thank You note following the event. Diva B's Kitchen will be our 1st choice in catering needs as well as a definite reccomendation to our family & friends! -The Morgans

I reached out to Jordan, asking him to cater a private dinner for my friends and I while we were in Austin for a bachelorette party. Jordan was amazing both during the preparation for the night and during the night of the dinner. He really did his homework beforehand to make sure he would be catering exactly to the needs of the event (pun intended). He had a unique menu that really showcased his talents as a chef but was also more than willing to adjust any items requested for particular tastes or preferences. On the night of the dinner, Jordan stayed on schedule and the food was phenomenal. He even made great margaritas! I highly recommend Jordan if you’re thinking of using a catering service for any occasion. He is very professional and really takes the client’s wants and needs into consideration. You can tell he has a great passion for the food he provides and he has a great personality to work with! I have recommended Jordan to a few of my friends who are also traveling to Austin for various events. You won’t be disappointed! I still dream of the fresh churros he made.
