I can't say enough about this team! My husband and I were planning a wedding in Dripping Springs while living in Dallas and I'm so glad we chose CWAT! Kassie was so sweet and helped us in creating a menu for our reception that really reflected who we are and what we wanted our... Read More day to look like. They were so helpful that we chose to have them cater our rehearsal dinner as well. I can't tell you how many people from our wedding stopped us to tell us how amazing the food was!

My now husband and I were joking that we were really just at the wedding for the food. Kassie and the team did such an incredible job with our dinner - we had so many guests come and tell us this was the best wedding food they had ever had. We chose to go with family style... Read More dining instead of a seated dinner or buffet to avoid tracking who wanted what food and also avoid long lines. The guests loved it and even tried to ask for the recipes from the staff. We were married in November - and wanted more of a Texas meets Thanksgiving type dinner - and even the pass through appetizers had the perfect little sticks through them to match our theme. I hope that I can make up another event sometime soon to have CWAT cater it!

Catering with a Twist blew us out of the water! From day one, they communicated so effortlessly with us, ensuring that our special day would be exactly what we envisioned. My husband and I were planning our Texas Hill Country wedding from Connecticut, so having a vendor... Read More understand us and what we were hoping for is exactly what we need and exactly what Catering with a Twist delivered. Kassie and her Team at CWAT incorporated awesome presentation into our reception- adding a shabby-chic, rustic charm to each food station, beverage station and dessert spread. They asked for Pinterest ideas of what we wanted, photos, and asked for a questionnaire to make sure that everything looked seamless with the rest of our reception. The most important thing- the food. We honestly had guests, even weeks after, mention the food and how creative and delicious it was. On more than one occasion guests said it was the best food and wedding they had been to before! My husband and I love food, so this was the most important part of our wedding (other than the ceremony of course) and it was better than we envisioned. When we came to Austin a few months before the wedding, Kassie and her team did a sit down tasting with us and even that was so professionally done and amazing. Sometimes vendors try to wow you at a tasting and then the food is sub-par, but the food at our wedding was beautiful, fresh and in-season. The staff even went out of their way to give extra attention to our guests throughout the night as well as us- we were so busy with photos during the cocktail hour, but the staff made sure we got to have a sample of all of the passed apps during dinner so we didn't miss out. Everything was awesome, creative and unique- the price is fair and reasonable, especially for what you are getting and it is worth working with this team. We really appreciate everything they did for us to make our Big Day so special!

I booked few tastings with catering companies and started with Catering with a Twist, as they were one of the preferred vendors from my wedding venue. Once my partner and I tried their food, we called off the other 2 tastings. We knew they couldn’t beat the chicken and waffles... Read More we had from CWAT! Needless to say, we hired them for our brunch wedding!

All and all highly recommended!

My husband and I used CWAT for our recent March wedding and couldn't have been more pleased! After going through several caterers who were extremely unresponsive or difficult to work with I can't express enough what a relief it was to find Kassie with CWAT. Kassie was hands down... Read More the most responsive and communicative vendor we worked with for our wedding. She was thorough and worked with us and our tight budget to ensure the catering was perfect for our day. Aside from the more business side of CWAT the food was awesome! To be honest my husband and I had already prepared ourselves for mediocre food since we figured most catered food is good but nothing to get all excited about. In addition we actually didn't taste the food before hand since we live in a different city. Boy were we wrong! The appetizers (mini polenta bites and mini quesadillas) were delicious, our guests couldn't stop talking about them. The dinner was great as well, the spicy caesar salad had this great dressing that was tangy and had a good kick of spice that was just enough for the spice lovers at the wedding and not too much for those who can't tolerate a lot of heat. The grilled chicken was flavorful and juicy, southwestern mashed potatoes were creamy and full of flavor, and the roasted veggies were cooked and seasoned perfectly. In addition we had some vegan and vegetarian guests and the stuffed bell pepper they prepared special for them was reportedly awesome. Finally my favorite food of the night: dessert! I couldn't make up my mind because all the desserts on their menu sounded great so we ended up with 5 dessert options (lol). All of them were AMAZING. What a way to end the night, my guests couldn't stop raving about all the desserts. The banana cream pie and peanut butter chocolate pie were my personal favorite. Our wedding night was amazing and I know part of that was having really great vendors. CWAT is the perfect combo of great customer service, creativity, great food, and affordability. I can't stress enough how pleased we were with their service. THANK YOU KASSIE!

What can I say here that hasn't already been said? CWAT was spectacular - from coming up with our initial menu to taking care of linens and display, I would have changed nothing! To start, I contacted them with my main request: a fajita bar. I only had vague idea for cocktail... Read More hour snacks, so Kassie filled in those blanks for me. Then, at my final coordination meeting at the venue, they had a catering manager there to take notes and ask questions. She brought up things I hadn't even thought of, and really saved the day with figuring out the linens, dessert display, and wine glass needs (they take care of all that for you too!!!!). The day of was PERFECT. I didn't have to worry about a thing. When I first saw it all set up, I was blown away. The guests came up to me constantly throughout the night to tell me how delicious everything was, and as a bride it's wonderful to know that your guests are taken care of. On top of that, their staff is so friendly and professional! Bonus, the groom and I were able to take home leftovers (no matter how hard you try, it's really hard to enjoy dinner the day of your wedding) and it was SO GOOD THE NEXT DAY. I swear, some of the best leftovers ever. 11/10 would use again! Thank you everyone at CWAT, you helped make our wedding awesome!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, what I do! I started Catering with a Twist with a dream to bring art and design to the world of catering, realizing that Austin was missing that "Keep it Weird" caterer.  With 15 years as a Property Event Planner, I coordinated, designed and hosted 100's of events.  With that said, I am able to bring this expertise to each and every wedding and event with Catering with a Twist.  I believes life is way too short to live life like everyone else. Being different is the only way to live life, and normal is, well, boring.
