Crave was amazing! They gave me a customized delicious menu with professional and wonderful service. The quality of food was on par with a restaraunt and definitely above what people expect with food served at weddings. Planning my menu was so fun and crave worked hard to make sure my menu was perfect for me. They successfully pulled off a vegan menu that all my non vegan guests raved about, from the cocktails and appetizers to the meal. A special thanks to Leslie who was so wonderful and helpful with every aspect. My wedding was seamless and it was in a large part because of crave. Highly recommended!

We hired Crave to cater a family party of about 50 and were enormously pleased. We worked mostly with Leslie and Jordan. The food was excellent, and Leslie was very accommodating is making suggestions that would appeal to my dad's taste. There is always the fear that catered food will have a processed aftertaste and unappealing texture, and I am happy to say that this was not the case. Everything tasted wonderfully. The service was also dynamite. We were in a small reception space, and the staff did a great job of clearing the plates without causing a distraction. Overall I could not have asked for better. Thank you Crave!

My husband and I got married in Jan 2015 at Old Glory Ranch. We used Crave Catering for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony. We cannot say enough good things about their food and service. From the very beginning, when we met Leslie LaSorsa at our tasting, we were beyond impressed. Their food at the tasting alone rivaled some of our very favorite restaurants.
For our rehearsal dinner we chose a BBQ meal (brisket, sausage, chicken, green beans, tea corn pudding, etc), which was excellent. For our wedding we had a buffet and passed hors d'oeuvres. We loved the bacon wrapped quail bites and their spinach and artichoke dip was AMAZING. Our favorite item was the beef wellington. It melted in my mouth and was just so delicious.
Everyone at Crave was professional and a pleasure to work with.
I would recommend Crave to others without reservation!

Crave Catering was the absolute best! The staff was very professional and their food was incredible -- all of our guests commented to us about the delicious blend of flavors. We attended a tasting prior to our event, and they presented us with so many fabulous ideas, were so flexible with the menu (not only with putting it together but also with some specific dietary restrictions), and stayed within our budget. We also arranged our wedding cake through Crave, and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious! We knew there were going to be several children at our event, and Crave created a children's menu that so many parents thanked us for and that the kids loved! I cannot say enough good things about Crave. They exceeded all of our expectations.

Working with Meredith Pollard and Crave Catering was a wonderful experience. We planned our wedding from 2000 miles away and from our first phone consultation, Meredith was on point. She designed a menu that perfectly fit our tastes and venue as well as stayed within budget. The Crave team made the whole process smooth and were a pleasure to work with; they were helpful at every step, from choosing a menu to scheduling a tasting, guiding us in our drink selections, and ensuring our day went off without a hitch. The food was AMAZING (I still hear rave reviews from our guests) and the service throughout impeccable. I can't recommend Crave highly enough!

My husband and I did one tasting for our wedding and right then we knew we wanted them to cater our special day. Crave did such an amazing job with all aspects of their service and the food was INCREDIBLE. Our guests complimented us all night long and many said "that was the best wedding food they'd ever had." We couldn't have been happier. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for great service and amazing food for their wedding!!

We contracted with Crave Catering for our daughter's April 13, 2014 wedding held at the Vista on Seward Hill. While the catering decisions made me the most nervous during the planning stages, thankfully the decision to go with Crave was one of the best we made. Aimee and Kacie were always available to answer our questions and when we met with Aimee for the walk through a month before the event, I knew we would be in good hands. The food was wonderful and we are still getting compliments. Kacie and her staff were so friendly and professional as they attended to every detail and every guest. We really had no worries and could just have fun. Thank you!

They were amazing! They handled everything for me! They were the first group we hired and Meredith was the one we worked with. She helped us find many other vendors who were great. She gave us suggestions for multiple things, not just food. The food was incredible, we got sooo many compliments and everyone ate almost all of it. I wanted stations with certain food, most that weren't on their menu and they did a great job customizing the food and making exactly what I wanted. Their service the day of was amazing. They had so many servers and they were all very nice and catered to our needs. I would use them to cook my food everyday if I could and will 100% use them for my next party :) I do think they are on the more expensive side in Austin, but it is totally worth it. You 100% get what you pay for and top notch service is worth it! They always made sure my husband and me had everything we needed and got us food and drinks whenever we wanted! Highly recommend them!

Meredith, Kacie, Chef Adam, and everyone at Crave was amazing! Top notch, for sure. I planned my Austin wedding from New Jersey, and I could not have asked for a better experience. My wife and I had an initial conference call with Meredith to discuss our likes and needs for our wedding. Then, she presented us with three sample menus and pricing. We tweaked the menu with a few phone calls and emails before finally settling on our menu. My menu was amazing. I even asked for an appetizer that was not on their menu, and there was never even an eye batted about the request. It was very seasonal and fresh. One of the best things about the food was that it was not heavily or overly sauced.

During the event, the staff was unbelievable. They were right where we needed them, right when we needed them. They were great to ensure our families got to go through the buffet first and invited people to the buffet by tables so that the buffet lines were not excessively long and the whole process was orderly. My guests appreciated that. The staff was so responsive to our guests - even going so far as to share their recipe for Mac-n-cheese fritters with my dad!

Overall, they far exceeded our expectations. I can't wait to get back to Austin and figure out the next event that we can hire them for!
