Pearl Snap Cuisine did a phenomenal job catering my wedding in Dripping Springs, TX this past May! From the start, Jackson and Alicia were helpful, professional, and accommodating. During our first meeting, they set up multiple spreads for my now husband, mother, and I to try out, which were all delicious, and they were super helpful in helping us determine the dishes for our large wedding at an affordable price. The value of their food quality and service is outstanding. Our wedding guests are still raving about how delicious everything was, with many saying it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! Thank you, Pearl Snap for making the culinary experience at our wedding so exceptional!

We recently spent a long weekend at Lago Vista outside of Austin where Jackson Bolton prepared an amazing three course meal for our group. I was referred to him by a well known catering company in Austin who spoke very highly of him. We delighted not only in the meal but also the presentation, his hospitality and of course, his bananas foster flambe! To add, Jackson was extremely flexible and responsive as we tried to work through a menu that fit our dietary restrictions and budget. We couldn't be happier with this experience.

Leslie was a joy to work with. This was the first time I've had to set up an event with a catering service and she was a tremendous help in guiding me through the process. Everything was set up on time, the food was delicious, and my group was very appreciative of the service provided. Thank you, Leslie, for a job well done. I definitely recommend Fabulous Affairs for your event planning/catering needs.

I host seminars on a regular basis, and the meals ordered from stores and restaurants are getting tasteless overtime. I found Karen on the internet and saw her background that drew my attention immediately. I decided to give her a try and see how it will work for my event. The results turned out fantastic! She showed up right on schedule, professionally dressed with the food I'd ordered. I was able to tell that it was the food I've been looking for just by the smell of them! The unfinished dishes were all boxed up and bottomed up which had never happened before in my seminars. I highly recommend Karen catering your meal if you are sick and tired of the food from stores in the market. Actually, I am hiring her again to cater my next seminar!

Highly recommended- A+++ Karen, catered my event for over 60 guests flawlessly and beyond my expectations. My promotion ceremony was a success thanks to Karen’s hard work. She took my ideas and transformed them in to a superb event. The food presentation was beautiful and colorful, the food tasted scrumptious and the decoration was very attractive. She took the time to consider all the details (such as her selection of silverware, flatware, tables, linen etc) that cohesively brought the entire event together. All of my guests were impressed and loved the catering. She handled it all for me. I was truly impressed with her abilities and would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

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!

Having just moved to Austin and unfamiliar with a local catering team I turned to Thumbtack to review resources in the area. I was immediately contacted by Laura from Bittersweet Cakes and Catering with a fabulous menu and quote. She was wonderful to work with through the entire process. The food was delicious (I'd actually love a few of her recipes because a month later I still reminisce about the stuffed Figs!). I was entertaining 25 executives at my home and wanted a perfect turn key night and it was that plus more. I would highly recommend Laura for any event and will look forward to working with her again in the future.

Crepe Class - What a gracious and knowledgeable host and instructor Katya is! Her home kitchen was perfect spatially for our class of six and in just observing, is a lesson for the home cook on pantry organization, storage and stocking. Katja obviously is passionate and knowledgeable about food. She clearly described the ingredients and cooking methods for us to be successful in making our crepes. As a professional, Katya taught us the science of why and how the recipe works rather than just dumping, stirring and talking. And, after a failure, set a standard by saying "No, not good. Let's start over." and then taught us the fix. I appreciate that! The only criticism I have is the time involved in the class. We were an interested group that asked questions and wanted to participate, so the class took quite a bit longer. That was fine for me, but we did got a little hungry waiting to eat till the cooking was done. But, Katya did note the passage of time, made us aware, and modified the class. Yummm! I'd love to have a class with Katya again!

We just left our private cooking class at Katya's kitchen and we couldn't wait to write her a great review! This cooking class far exceeded our expectations. We had a call with Katya a couple weeks before our class to talk about what was important to us, and she tailored a class around our needs. She purchased all the ingredients, made a nice printout with recipes and tips, and was very thorough every step of the way. Like another student said, she made us feel like guests in her home rather than clients. We loved that she gave her personal recommendations for ingredients and cooking tools that it has taken her many years to figure out, so we can start our road to becoming cooking experts from a much better place. Thank you Katya! We will see you again!

Katya is a genius in the kitchen. She has an ability to pare food with spices that bring out the absolute best flavor of each. Her food preparation is astounding and the presentation is so beautiful you almost don't want to eat it because you don't want to disturb the arrangement. She is equally comfortable with entrée dishes and desserts. I highly recommend Katya for a cooking class, for a dinner party or for catering your next event. No one can match her talents in the kitchen. Amazing! You will be blessed to meet her.

We had Natalie out at our brewery to cater our tours while our tasting room was open several times. We couldn't of asked for better service. She was prompt, organized and of course, made amazing food! She incorporated beer into her dishes to enhance the experience at the brewery which all of the customers raved about and we absolutely loved. Every experience we had with her was excellent and we wish she still lived in Houston because no one has compared to her impeccable service and amazing food.

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!

Hire her! Bon is amazing and her food is ever more amazing. Our family has used her services for weekly meals as well as catered events. Her food is so delicious. She picks the finest and freshest ingredients. My husband with a salt addict, salting everything before he ever tasted anything. Bon has him loving and eating food without salting first...EVER. She has been a great influence on our family. Not only is she a talented Chef but she is also a wonderful person. We feel like she is an extension of our family. We can't say enough positive things about her,

Working with Lyndie C Catering was wonderful! Lyndie responded to my inquiry quickly and the responsiveness continued throughout the whole process. I was working on a corporate cocktail party with Lyndie in Austin while I was in NJ so it required extra help from Lyndie and she knocked it out the park. She was very easy to work with, food was excellent and she helped to coordinate all of the other vendors for the evening. I couldn't have done it without her!

Chef Daniele was absolutely WONDERFUL! We could not have asked for a better chef or setup. Our group was visiting Austin from out of town for a joint bachelor/bachelorette party and staying at an AirBNB, so we thought it would be nice to stay in for an evening to visit. Chef Daniele was extremely accommodating in creating a menu that included dishes for vegetarian and vegan guests. He sent me the menu days in advance. Since we were unfamiliar with the pots/pans, knives, kitchen tools, and kitchen itself, Chef Daniele brought many of his own tools, which was extremely helpful to us. On the morning of the event, we unfortunately encountered an issue with the gas line. Chef Daniele offered at that point to cook on the grill outside (which was incredible!), even though he had already bought the ingredients for the inside meal. Thankfully, the gas line was fixed and he cooked the following delicious small plates for the group: spinach, garlic and basil fettuccine with wild mushrooms; Red-wine chicken with vegetable mirepoix; Milk-braised pork tenderloin; Sauteed lemon green beans. He even allowed one of our guests (who loves to cook) to assist in cooking! We were also grateful that Chef Daniele was okay with a little partying (maybe too much drinking) and dancing during the evening! :) Chef Daniele's punctuality (on time!); hospitality (accommodating, in tune with the guests likes/dislikes, cleaned up the kitchen for us and even washed some dishes that he did not use-very unnecessary!), personality (kind, calm, and happy!) and cooking (Florence-trained!) were all perfect. As a result, I have recommended him to friends that live in Austin, and I will continue to recommend him to anyone visiting the area for the weekend! Thank you to Chef Daniele for an all around fantastic evening!

I am a corporate event planner and have used Sapphire Catering for several different types of events from lunch meetings to intimate fundraisers. I have always found their food incredibly delicious and their focus on healthy living options; gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, etc. helps me accommodate the various dietary restrictions and preferences of our clientele. Peyton and Mai Lan are professional and engaging and they are always willing to go the extra mile to make the event memorable. Every time I hire them I receive so many compliments on the taste and quality of the food. They always get new business from clients who are thoroughly impressed and satiated. I would act fast if you want them for your next event - their calendar is sure to be filling up fast!

Sapphire Catering & Events did a great job with 3 different events I have been involved with. One was my daughter's wedding with about 175 attendees. They were wonderful to work with, communicated with us, and delivered as promised. The other two events were work related meals. One was a dinner for a group of about 60 leaders, and that went so well we also hired them to provide breakfast for about 150 volunteers. We highly recommend these ladies to anyone looking for a good, reliable catering service!

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.

Eric and his whole operation is stellar. I hosted a birthday party with 50 guests. From the start through the finish, Eric was the perfect person to work with. Because of the weather, I had to throw some changes at him - the response was always, "No problem, We'll make it happen." On top of that, the food is excellent. Guests all night kept commenting on how great the food was. When you are doing an event, you need someone who can give you top quality food, and be a great person to work with. Eric is that person. He will be first on my list to call for future events, and I would recommend him to anyone I know.

Commitment to EXCELLENCE: Food Quality, Taste, and Presentation...NOTHING lacks! This is a truly a crown jewel amongst many in the case; and, a reputable well-respected business; led by an owner whose heart and soul goes into every meal prepared. She came highly-recommended and was very helpful in planning for my church’s annual community-wide Thanksgiving feast; which fed almost 200 people. Not knowing much about catering, myself, she was very hospitable when explaining and helping me to identify our needs; and, was very informative about best practices: how much we needed, plans/equipment ti keep the food safe, etc. I have/will continue(d) to use and refer!

We put together a wedding rehearsal brunch, fairly quickly, and Melissa had some great food selection options that fit with my concept and budget. The taste and execution were very nice.
