Exceptional Food and Service

We originally worked with Lisa Thompson and, after postponing our wedding due to COVID-19, worked with K.D. Tucker. Both were true joys to work with! Lisa helped arrange our original menu and tasting prior to booking, and she made this process SO easy, which was especially impressive because we could not be on-site (destination wedding) and we had a lot of different guest preferences and dietary restrictions to consider. Instead of a generic menu with options to choose from, we told Lisa what we needed to consider, and she crafted us the perfect menu – and was also so gracious when we kept adding and taking away items in trying to balance food and budget. The transition for postponing the wedding and to working with K.D. was seamless, and K.D. was so ready and professional with reminding us of deadlines, answering all of our questions (some even a bit miscellaneous) leading up to the day-of, and dealing with last-minute issues without us even having to think about them. Throughout the whole process, both Lisa and K.D. were incredibly responsive and attentive to our needs and wants. We had tastings at several catering companies and decided that Austin Catering really came through in quality, taste, appearance, and price for wedding food. During our reception, Austin Catering staff would continually made sure we always had the food and drink we wanted in hand and even set aside portions of appetizers for us at dinner in case we missed them! Even a couple weeks after our wedding, our guests were still raving that the food was some of the best wedding food they’ve had! You cannot go wrong with hiring Austin Catering for your wedding!

Flexible and So Delicious

Food is such an important part of a wedding and Austin Catering was 100% the way to go! It was absolute perfection! The K.D. and team worked with us through multiple tastings to craft a delicious menu that was inclusive of all dietary restrictions. All the food left our guests raving. From the mouthwatering appetizers to our main courses, every bite was a culinary delight. The presentation was exquisite, and the quality of the ingredients was evident in every dish. They were so collaborative with our rental company to help reduce delivery costs, rent items needed for donuts, and provide expert knowledge and suggestions. Not to mention the impeccable service provided by the waitstaff – attentive, friendly, and always with a smile. Our guests were treated like royalty from the moment they arrived until the last goodbye. We were so happy with our experience!!
