The food from Avalon Catering was absolutely AMAZING!

They basically created a custom menu for us with custom recipes mixing me and my husband's cultures.

I loved the risotto and flatbread the most! The guests raved about the food as well, and there was PLENTY so we never ran out (yes, that has happened before at weddings I've attended).

The ONE drawback is price, they are on the higher end. However, you get what you pay for and with them, you get a LOT!

We obviously picked the best! Everything was done so professionally, from the set-up to the take down. Food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. Displayed in nice glass serving dishes, the buffet presentation was elegant. The service was over the top from the first day we arranged a tasting right up to the very end.
For sure a winner!

I absolutely love Cathy and the staff at Avalon Catering! Everyone was so easy to work with and they provide a top of the line service! One of my favorite parts about Avalon is their dedication to providing only local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. This means they won't serve fresh peaches in December since they aren't obtainable from a local grower at that time of the year. Their focus on quality food for what I think is a great value is so important. Our guests loved their food at the wedding and so did I and my husband. Our tasting was great, but the food actually served absolutely blew us away with its amazing flavor and quality. I saw tons of people going back for second plates! We didn't even have leftovers!

Avalon Catering did a wonderful job by providing quality food for our wedding! Being the bride, and not getting to eat very much during the reception, what I did eat was very tasty and exactly what I desired from the catering service! The mac 'n cheese was fantastic, I think we received the most compliments on the mac 'n cheese! We also served a variety of slider sandwiches with southern dishes on the side. Avalon was considerate of our request to have large picnic baskets as the center pieces and having the sliders within each basket, a lemonade, and coffee bar. My husband enjoyed the fried pickles, and the server who helped our head table brought him a full plate of fried pickles! My only disappointment was at the end of the night, the waiting staff seemed to be very quick in their cleaning, they may have thrown away some of our menus, ISPY game cards, wedding favors, and table numbers - things we would have liked to save from the reception area. All in all, I believe Avalon left a positive impression on our guests during the reception!

First, this was the most delicious food. Apps to cake. Avalon handled everything for us -- decorations, flowers, food, bartending, wonderful wait staff, event management/flow. The only job we had was to provide the place cards. All the rest was handled beautifully!

We did not do a taste test before the event, as we have tasted Cathy Conway's delectable food several times before at other events. Everything was perfect. Can't wait to eat the top of the cake . . . tonight!

Cathy and the team at Avalon made my April 2013 wedding a huge success. Our venue was the beautiful home of a family friend and while they had hosted large parties and a few small weddings, they'd never done anything there quite as large as our 140 person wedding. Cathy met us at the house several times throughout the planning process to discuss the logistics and flow of the day and her expertise was invaluable to my low stress level. She went above and beyond to answer questions and provide insight in how to make the day perfect.

The food was unbelievable. We had three passed hors d'oeuvres (two kinds of bruschetta, a crispy shrimp filet with avocado salsa and, my personal favorite, a crispy panchetta topped with goat cheese, fig and balsamic reduction) and served dinner family style. The service throughout the evening was perfect, it was so fun watching the caterers bring out the plates of food and seeing my guests' faces light up when they saw the meal. For dinner we had a delicious seasonal salad with fresh peas, radishes, panko breadcrumbs and a tasty buttermilk dressing. The salad was super fresh, crisp and the perfect temperature. Following the salad we had a grilled chicken breast wrapped in proscuitto and a halibut with a tomato buerre blanc sauce that my sister in law wanted to drink straight out of the bowl. For side dishes we had grilled fresh veggies, roasted potatoes and Carolina Gold risotto. Everything was cooked perfectly and served at the right temperature.

Her staff also bar-tended for us at the event and they did a fantastic job. Everyone was friendly and helpful. It gave me great piece of mind knowing the Avalon staff was taking care of things. Everything went smoothly and I would highly recommend them to anyone planning an event.

We worked with Avalon for our wedding reception (70 guests) in December of 2012, and we couldn’t have been happier. They were one of the less expensive caterers in our search, but you certainly couldn’t tell from the experience we had! Cathy was pleasant, flexible and patient as we went through the process of figuring out what we wanted, and our guests raved that it was some of the best wedding food they had ever had. Some of the favorites were the beef short ribs, the “shrimp and grits” hors d’oeuvres, and the rice middlins risotto, which was so creamy that bets were being placed on whether or not the grits had made another appearance. The service was excellent, the timing was perfect, and they had no problem working with our venue, which was slightly more casual than most (Paris on Ponce). We highly suggest going with Avalon for your next event!

We continue to receive so many compliments about our reception food! (Beef short ribs and fried green tomatoes!) Cathy at Avalon was so great to work with- she was helpful, courteous, and creative. Avalon helped make my reception feel unique and deeply southern, from the food to serving family style. Highly, highly recommend!

Avalon catering did an incredible job with the food for my wedding. My husband is Greek, so we wanted to have Greek food for the wedding. I searched all over Atlanta for a reasonably priced caterer who was willing to step outside of their published "American" or "Southern Fusion" menu options without much luck. Cathy was totally accommodating of all of our requests and came up with a completely unique non-"wedding-y" menu that made our day so special. The food was fresh, impeccably prepared and presented. Her staff was very professional and they even handled a mid-reception booze run without missing a step :). I whole-heartedly recommend Avalon catering for any special event.

I had used Avalon for work events prior to being engaged and knew that I wanted to work with them for my wedding. I have always appreciated their level of professionalism, responsiveness and of course, their delicious food!

Avalon recommended our florist, who we ended up using, and that was a perfect arrangement. We had 2 companies that had worked together and knew each other and that made everything flow very smoothly. And since I had worked with Avalon and knew their taste level and I trusted them, I felt very confident trusting their recommendation for a florist.

Avalon also catered our family brunch the morning after the wedding, and I know my mother, who coordinated the brunch, really had a positive experience working with them.

Avalon worked with me to ensure that the event went the way that I wanted it to from the order of the buffet to my request to have the hors d'oeuvres and wine from cocktail hour brought out to those of us taking pictures in the wedding party so that we wouldn't miss out.
