Best choice for catering in Austin! Pink Avocado is so DELICIOUS!! We went in for a tasting and knew we were using them after the first bite! Not only was the food amazing, so was the presentation. We chose to do the buffet line, but the food was not presented in the traditional sad "buffet" style. The dishes and bowls and utensils they used really made the experience classy and special. Everyone was easy to work with. I was driving in the car one day and thought, 'maybe they can make black bean tacos?' Sure enough, I asked them and they created a recipe for me. It was such a pleasurable experience. Our guests are still talking about how it was the best wedding food they have ever had.

Amazing!! Seriously, so amazing. The food was incredible, and the staff is a pleasure to work with. We started out with an awful caterer, but thank goodness the contract was never signed and we were saved by Pink Avocado!! Great tasting food, great service.

Everything was delicious - cooked to perfection. I'm still in awe of their Beef & Bourbon tenderloin. It was one of the best food experiences I've ever had!

The staff was friendly and polite, and catered to all of our rambunctious guests so courteously. I couldn't have asked for a better catering service than this. Five stars!!!

Pink Avocado was great to work with. I thought they would be way out of my price range, but they were not. So I would definitely let them know what you want and see what they can do. We worked with Britt throughout the process and she was wonderful. She was always super responsive, even though they are busy busy. Our food was delicious and people are still talking about. They also packed up all of our leftovers and sent them home with us, which was wonderful. We had made one modification to the menu (took the bacon off bacon-wrapped chicken roulade) for our tasting and it was notated on the contract, however, there was a miscommunication with the kitchen staff, so there was bacon on all of the chicken. I don't eat bacon so I noticed. None our guests seemed to mind. I did let Britt know after the wedding, so that probably wouldn't happen again, but that would be my only concern if you modify their standard menu options. Other than that, it was wonderful food!

AMAZING VENDOR! I would highly recommend Pink Avocado to anyone! The food is absolutely delicious! Sarah was so professional and flexible with us. She did an amazing job from start to finish.

Pink Avocado is the best in the biz. They made a custom menu that was appropriate for children, a hungry Texas crowd and a picky group from overseas. And they did it with flawless perfection. I appreciate the amount of time and energy they put into knowing the desired outcome of the meal, the history of the couple, the likes and dislikes. It was more than putting food together, it was putting on a gourmet performance. People raved about the food, people ate and ate until they couldn't eat anymore. Our wedding reception was amazing -- but the food was the star. We heard about the amazing BBQ brisket, truffle mac and cheese and garlic potatoes for days. Thank you Pink Avocado for making our reception a magical experience!

We worked with the very patient and efficient Britt, at Pink Avocado. She helped us customize a menu that worked with our budget, tastes, style and dietary restrictions. I feel like she jumped through hoops for us to have everything we were looking for. So many guests came up to us during (and after) the wedding to tell us how great the food was! We were able to construct a very special menu that was Paleo-style, gluten-free, but also had something for vegans and vegetarians as well! The meat-eaters and veggies were all happy! We will definitely use Pink Avocado for other events. AND- they really have a star with Britt! We loved her.

Pink Avocado Catering (PAC) provided the *best* wedding food we have ever tasted. (And we're not just saying that because it was our wedding!) Multiple other vendors for our wedding raved when they heard that PAC was our caterer!

Pink Avocado staff were always patient and highly responsive. Out of the four caterers that gave us proposals close to what we wanted, PAC had the best pricing and were the easiest to work with. Though the food, value, and communication were the primary reasons we chose them, it also helped that they were able to provide bartending while allowing us to provide the alcohol ourselves and rentals that perfectly matched the clean, simple look we wanted.

PAC was able to create a menu that allowed for meat-eaters, vegetarians and those with true gluten allergies to all have multiple options in the family-style dinner without anyone needing to get a special plate. They also work with local farms and producers which was important to us. In fact, we were married on a local farm and although PAC had not worked with them before, they were willing to get what produce they could from our venue which we loved.

The food truly was *phenomenal* and the service top-notch. People raved about it all night saying that they came expecting rubber chicken and had one of the best meals they had had in a long time in general - not just for a wedding. Besides the ceremony, it was the most talked about thing afterwards and a few guests have asked if PAC has a restaurant they can visit next time they are in Austin to have more of their wonderful food! (We wish!) My husband's uncle raided the fridge before we got our leftovers and ate ALL 6 servings of the leftover mac 'n cheese at 3am on our wedding night. Thankfully, PAC offered to make us more next time we're in Austin because they're awesome like that. (Though not awesome enough to give us their recipes... we asked!)

If you choose PAC as your caterer, we are confident that you will not regret it!

We used Pink Avocado for our daughter's wedding in October 2013 and could not have been happier! We were told by so many wedding guests that the food was the best they had at a wedding and received compliment on the quality and service all night long. Working with their staff was easy and they were very responsive to our every need. We cannot recommend Pink Avocado more highly -- you will not be disappointed in their food, service, and responsiveness!

For our wedding, we were enamored by the quality of the food during the tasting, but we still had our doubts when they had to cook for 230 people. The day of the wedding the food was as amazing and beautifully presented as the day of the tasting.
They were really accommodating on all of our requests and they served the head table just as we had requested. The value of the food exceeded our expectations.
They even packed some leftovers for us to enjoy afterwards without us requesting it. We certainly would recommend this vendor and would use in the future.

From the beginning, my fiance and I knew we did not want "traditional wedding food" for our big day and Pink Avocado was the perfect choice. They were extremely easy to work with and always quick to respond. The first sample menu they presented was exactly what we were looking for and with just a few tweaks, it was perfect.
Everyone loved our street taco bar and slider station and raved about the food. Several guests told me it was the best wedding food they had ever had and I am still craving it a month later! The staff was delightful the night of our wedding and made everything a breeze!

I cannot tell you how happy I was with Pink Avocado! I had my wedding at the Palm Door and decided it would be easiest to use Pink Avocado. They were a bit out of my budget, but I tell you now - it was COMPLETELY worth it! They were so helpful and flexible during the planning process - I lived out of town and had to plan all the changes and communication through email. They were so responsive and delightful to work with. On the day of the wedding, there were some stones that needed to be heated as part of the ceremony. For some reason, they would not light and my wedding planner basically refused to allow the stones to be in the ceremony --- one of the Pink Avocado bartenders took it upon himself (after seeing how upset my mother was) to find a blow torch and sat with those stones for 20 minutes to heat them up. My mother and mother-in-law were raving all night about how wonderful the Pink Avocado staff was. After the dinner, I received so many compliments from my family and friends about how it was the best wedding food they had ever had. I had some very disappointing vendors with my wedding but I was so happy Pink Avocado worked out so well!

It's tough work deciding on what vendors to work with for you and your man's super-special day...and choosing a caterer is one of the tougher decisions you'll have to make. After going though dozens of Austin-area caterers online and meeting with three, my husband and I decided to work with Pink Avocado for our December 2012 wedding.

They were great at communicating promptly through email and were very conscious of staying within our budget (~$27pp). After designing a menu with Britt, we scheduled a tasting (the money for the tasting will go towards your final cost if you decide to work with them). The food was great but due to financial circumstances, our budget got tighter so they redesigned our menu to be a make your own taco bar! The guests choose their own fillings that consisted of chicken manchaca, green chile pulled pork, smoked brisket, migas,and more! Along with the taco bar, we had 2 passed appetizers (grilled chicken quesadillas & queso empanadas)and tortillas chips with 3 types of salsas. They also had 2 different mimosas available for our guests to accompany their food!

The taco bar was a hit with even our pickiest guests! This allowed everyone to eat something catered to their own tastes and it all fit within our tight budget! On our big day, all the staff were super nice and everything went smoothly! They even were able to make a taco plate for my dad who for an unknown reason(??) wasn't able to eat with the rest of the guests. Britt didn't even bat a lash at having to redesign our menu - she was very professional and helpful. J & I will definitely consider using Pink Avocado again if we need catering in the future!

They were amazing to work with from start to finish! Super responsive, flexible, and helpful throughout. They arranged a full tasting with all menu items, which was all delicious! Rave reviews from the guests on the apps (chili/cornbread, empanadas) and entres (poblano stuffed chicken, veggie enchiladas, twice baked potatoes). They even made a custom dessert for us-- decorate your own cookie cake! They were easy to work with and very friendly & professional during the event. Highly recommend!

They even made a custom dessert for us-- decorate your own cookie cake! They were easy to work with and very friendly & professional during the event. Highly recommend! Read less

WONDERFUL food and service. This eclectic team was AMAZING for the cocktail hour and reception. I knew I didn't want a buffet style dinner but didn't need/want seated so they came up with a family style dinner!!! It was genius! Being a larger wedding it was also a great way for people to meet each other during dinner. The food was SO good, from the pear popovers during cocktail hour to the chicken veracruz & butternut squash lasagna during dinner!! Great staff on top of the wonderful food. Loved working with Britt! Attentive and friendly every time I had to call or email.

We had Pink Avocado cater both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. They were FABULOUS!! We had barbeque for the rehearsal and a tex-mex style for the wedding. Both nights were awesome - it was a fancy version of both. Several of our guests came us to up and said it was the best wedding food they've ever had. All of the staff was incredible to work with. We highly reccomend Pink!!

Everyone loved our food at the reception and that was all thanks to the people at Pink Avocado listening to what we wanted and coming up with a fabulous menu. We were on a small budget, and hey were very flexible as we tried to cut costs without skimping on quality.

Let me start by saying that awesome food was at the very top of our wedding priority list! My husband and I are both big "researchers"...so, we talked with quite a few caterers. I began contacting our long list of options, explaining our idea of a "southern comfort foods" type menu. A few of them were eliminated almost immediately (mainly due to budget), but there were six of them that had potential! We went to five tastings (I don't think that's the norm, but, like I said, food was a priority for us). All of the food was good (some was REALLY good), but we were disappointed each time when we got to the end of the tasting and realized that of the 20 items we wanted on our menu, only five could be included to keep things anywhere close to our budget. I had emphasized to each of the caterers that we really wanted to have a lot of different choices for our guests--not the typical salad, meat, veggie, starch, bread kind of menu...Yet each of the five caterers had prepared a menu that consisted of just that. They, of course, had included some of the foods we wanted, but none of them were able to truly capture the menu we were hoping for. Then...we had our sixth tasting. I guess we really did save the best for last! PA prepared our exact menu for our tasting--every single item we wanted (shrimp and grit cakes, chicken fried steak skewers, mashed potato bar, salad bar, fries, fried okra, fried pickles, BLTs, bbq bacon sliders, etc--the list is quite lengthy). And, the best part was, it was all DELICIOUS!!! Like, best food we've ever eaten. By the end of the tasting, we knew we had to have PA as our caterer! They worked with us to make sure everything was exactly what we wanted, while staying within our budget...and, it was. I cannot tell you how many guests told us it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. There were so many choices and the quality was outstanding! I cannot say enough about how awesome PA was. Highly recommended, for sure!!!

Pink Avocado did a great job at our wedding. I am vegan and they made a special main dish for the buffet. After the wedding, all of my friends told me how much they loved the vegan dish. They all went back for seconds and thirds. They were really great in dealing with our requests. I must say that my husband dealt with them more than I did, but I was pleased with everything.

I could not have been happier with Pink Avocado!! They catered our rehearsal dinner for 65 on Friday and our wedding for 115 on Saturday. We went with a Tex-Mex theme on Friday for our out of town guests and it was wonderful! We got tons of compliments from our guests.
For our wedding day we started with delicious passed Hors d'oeuvre, risotto cakes, chicken skewers and tuna tartare. For dinner we went with more traditional wedding food, chicken florentine, mashed potatoes, veggies, and a salad. It was wonderful and the presentation was beautiful too.
We also had a nacho bar set up about 10:15 pm, it was helpful after the drinks and the dancing. It was delicious and was served in take out containers so guests could take them when they left.
They also provided all of the place settings, bar set up, bar service, basically everything we did related to food and drink.
They were wonderful to work with, we worked primarily with Courtney and Brent and they were so easy going and open to our questions and requests. They are also priced very well for everything they do and the quality of their food.
Take a look at their website and the beautiful pictures of their food: http://pinkavocadocatering.com/index.html

Pink Avocado did a very nice job. They were great to work with, and presented the sit down meal beautifully. My only complaint is that it was not presented the way it was presented at the tasting. I had expected the same look as at the tasting, and that did not happen. Unfortunately, the meat option was way smaller at the wedding than at the tasting, and the potato was so cool looking at the tasting but presented completely different at the wedding. Rather disappointing to me. The pasta option was also not served in the same pasta bowl as at the tasting either. Guess I had expected to receive the same look at the tasting that we would get at the wedding. Other than that, the food was very good, and the service was excellent. They were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I would defiantly work with them again, just need to be sure the presentation is 'as had at the tasting'.

Oh man...the food was amazing. Everyone kept talking about it! We hired them for our wedding and were so glad that we did. They're really great at working with your budget and tastes to create the ideal menu for you. We answered questions and gave them information about what foods we liked and the feel of our wedding. From that, they created the perfect menu (Southern food, Texas brisket, etc) and still kept it so affordable. They also don’t tack on charges for every fork, knife, and ice cube, as well as a hefty “service charge” and cake-cutting fee, like some of the other caterers that we contacted. They’re also really flexible, especially with the bar set-up. They can provide all the alcohol or you can supply it; you can have a full bar or a limited one—lots of options to choose. We also had some special requests—we had sparkling cider for the underage guests and non-drinkers, and a family member with a severe gluten allergy who brought his own beer. They were great about making sure that the gluten-free beer was reserved for him. They accommodated all of these things and it all ran seamlessly. They're a smaller company but very personable. Brent (the owner) personally brought out all the food at our tasting. His team is just awesome. Best food EVER! Highly, highly recommend them.

We actually were recommended Pink Avocado from not only my wedding planner but two other people in my office that used them. We only really looked a handful of other caterers and after seeing their proposal and what they offered we just had to go with them for our wedding this past November 2010. Everyone loved the food at our wedding especially during our cocktail hour with all the different kinds of bruschetta and chicken satay. The best part of all was that they were able to provide a Gluten Free menu for our guests outside of the bruschetta and it was still delicious, even to people who usually don't eat Gluten free dishes. Dinner was amazing and we constantly had people coming up to us raving about the food and for days after.

Pink Avocado catered a wedding I was a part of. Their food was SO delicious. It was creative and beautifully presented. They went above and beyond. When we forgot table clothes she lent us some of hers. They helped time the cake cutting and had everything ready before we could think to ask. They were so professional as well as friendly. Make an appointment, try the food, hire them! They were on time, reliable and awesome.

Pink Avocado was THE perfect choice for us! They created the perfect, tasty, playful menu that fit perfectly within our budget. We opted for a 3/4 meal of 7 different appetizers, instead of the more standard main dish + sides. Although our selections were all over the place (e.g., sliders, mini corndogs, friend mac-n-cheese, and tuna tartare), Brent/Pink somehow made it come together seamlessly! Everyone is still raving at how fun the menu was and how awesome the food tasted. And not only was the menu and execution amazing, Pink was a pleasure to work with. They timely answered any and all questions I had. I would recommend Pink to ANYONE!

After looking at a few caterers in town we decided on Pink Avocado. They are so laid back and easy to work with, listened to what we wanted and didn't want and were quick to answer e-mails with questions or concerns we had. Our tasting was delicious and the food provided at the wedding didn't disappoint. It was far from your regular old 'wedding' food and we got tons of compliments on how good and out of the ordinary it was for a wedding - that it was more like eating at a 5 start restaurant! Not only was the food delish, the staff is AMAZING! They did so much work through the night catering to us and our guests, then even helped our coordinator clean up all our stuff at the end of the night. Since I brought in much of the decorations myself this was no small task - and I don't know what we would have done without them.

Pink Avocado did a great job! We were looking for a caterer who would do boxed meals for our casual wedding, and they came up with a great proposal that was within our budget and exactly what we were looking for - three different types of delicious sandwiches, fruit, and pasta salad. When we went in for the tasting, we thought everything was great and didn't request any changes. (I was especially thrilled with the excellent vegetarian option, a roasted veggie and goat cheese sandwich). They decorated the boxes with color-coded ribbons and flowers and arranged them artfully on the table when they delivered them. They were also very responsive any time I emailed them. Very easy to work with, and absolutely delicious food!

Pink Avocado catered our wedding last month. Overall we were really impressed by their level of service and the quality of the food. We wanted an all-vegetarian menu, and they were very creative and flexible in designing a delicious heavy h'orderves menu. We also wanted pies instead of a wedding cake, and they made adorable mini pies in mason jars. The presentation of all of the food was beautiful as well. They also ordered all of the rentals and provided bartending services.

Our venue, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, has a relatively short window of time for the caterers to set up, but Pink Avocado had no problem with it and everything was ready on time.

Their staff is super friendly and responsive. At the wedding they were very unobtrusive and directed all of their questions to our day-of coordinating staff. We would definitely hire them again for another event and recommend them to others.

Simplest way to boil it down: If you want to have a wedding where people leave talking about how great the food is, go with Pink Avocado. They were amazing: Super flexible with menu planning, incredibly hands-off for most of the planning process and day-of, great about making sure we got fed (and sending us home with a metric ton of leftovers) and their food is incredible — get the chicken pot pie, regardless of whether or not it fits your wedding's theme. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

The food at our tasting blew me away, so I was super excited for the wedding. Although the food wasn't quite as good (since it was for 150 more people), it was still awesome. Our guests thought the food was great and so did we. They were easy to work with and it was really fun to create our menu with them. The only negative comment was from one person who said the chicken was a little dry, but very tasty. But like I said, that was only one person. Overall we are very happy with our choice.

Pink Avocado did a great job catering our wedding. Everyone is still talking about how great the food was and I like that they didn't charge extra for the cake cutting. The whole evening was seamless and I have no complaints

At the last minute, I requested that we rent wine glasses through them and it was no problem.

Pink Avocado did a wonderful job for our wedding - the food was great and the service was good, too. As far as I know, they showed up on time and did everything they were supposed to do. We got lots of compliments on the food. I did take two stars off for value because I think they are a bit over-priced, mostly due to their 25% "supplies and delivery" charge that I think is excessive and should be charged based on the cost of the actual supplies and delivery being provided, like every other caterer we interviewed does. Also, they do not disclose that the fee is based on a percentage of your food and labor - they just list it as "supplies and delivery" as though it is a line item based on cost. I figured it out after we made a few changes and got a revised estimate. To add insult to injury, certain supplies are included in this charge (i.e. plates), but other supplies are arbitrarily excluded and charged separately (i.e. glasses). They would not work with me when I pointed this out, but I finally gave in because we really did like the food. Overall, they did a great job, but pay attention to the bills and make sure you understand what you're paying for.

YUM YUM YUM! We had a buffet style dinner with mac and cheese bar, carving stations, chili in mason jars, and twice baked potato soufflé, etc. The food not only fit our style and venue perfectly, but it was DELICIOUS. After the tasting, we were so looking forward to the wedding because we wanted to eat the food again haha. We got great feedback from our guests, as well.

The food from Pink Avocado was great. The only problem was that they ran out of the roasted asparagus. The servers were wonderful though. They set some aside for my husband and I since we were near the end of the buffet line. Overall, we would recommend them to others.

We had Pink Avocado cater for our social hour, buffet and late night food. We had so many complements on the food, especially the risotto cakes and the brownies! They were so great to work with and came up with great ideas that made a big difference like the grilled cheese with tomato bisque shooters and the mashed potato bar. Together we came up with an excellent menu and everything was fabulous. We had some confusion with coffee being served with the cake but overall it was a minor part of the whole evening. Only drawback is that I never got to try the brownies but I heard from many people they were great.

We used Pink Avocado for our wedding at The Texas Federation Women's Club this past June. We used them for our bar set up and food, choosing chicken and beef fajitas. They were the only caterer we had a tasting with, because after our tasting the food was so much better than any fajitas you would get at a standard restaurant and they were affordable, that we saw no need to try others.There were some miscommunications about the number of staffing from the beginning that became a bit of a challenge when we got closer to the wedding. However, they reassured us everything would be okay and in the end it really was! Their staff was very efficient!

In regards to the food the day of the wedding, there was an issue with the quality of the beef, a pretty elementary issue when it came to cutting it. This caused the beef to be too tough for most guests to eat. Of course, this was pretty upsetting to my husband and I. However, our guests raved about the rest of the food, which was very good! The thing I respect about Pink Avocado is that they owned up to their mistake instead of making excuses and did give us a decent refund. Hence, why I was able to still give them 4 out of 5 stars. Hopefully, the issue has been corrected and it won't be a problem for other brides and grooms in the future.

Our experience had some ups and downs so here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
-The bartenders, they were AMAZING!! Early in the night they ran out of club soda (see cons below) and the bartender made sure they found more and brought me my drink (it was my signature cocktail) out on to the dance floor. We got compliments about the amazing bartenders all night!
-Overall the food was really good. Lots of people really liked it.
-Very responsive, we made menu changes several times and they were also easy to work with. They also gave us great ideas for specialty cocktails (we ended up going with 2 of our favorites, but their ideas sounded amazing)
-Flexibility. I have a cousin in the Marines and we did not know until the week of the wedding if he would be able to come (he did, yay!). Pink Avocado was amazing with being flexible with this.
-You can provide your own alcohol, huge money saver!

Cons:
-We had a vegan entree option. On the vegan dish they put a side of potatoes with melted cheese...not good.
-We did southwestern themed food, and we had asked for it to be a little less spicy than at our tasting to accommodate all of our guests. They assured us it would be. Well it was not at all, it was just as spicy. A few older guests could not finish their meals.
-Food service was very inconsistent. Entire tables were done with their entrees before others had ever gotten theirs. Wait staff had also been pretty aggressive about clearing the salad course, so there was a lot of time that people did not have food. Luckily we had a great band that kept people entertained. Otherwise it could have been bad.
-My signature cocktail was Ruby Red Vodka and Soda. Pink Avocado knew this because it was in our contract. By around 9PM, maybe even earlier, they were out of soda. Not good ordering, but they did fix it and get more.

Overall, I would recommend them and probably use them again because the food was great, but there were definitely areas for improvement!

Overall I really loved the Pink Avocado. The food was absolutely delicious. There were just a few things that didn't go as planned. Nothing major, just a few details that seemed to be overlooked. If basing on flavor alone I would give them 10 out of 10! We did have some communication problems early in the planning process and a few details out of place on the big day. Overall I think that everyone we dealt with was extremely nice and well meaning, there was just a seeming lack of organization. I have to say weather I would recommend this vendor to a friend. I am putting yes, but that is only because maybe is not an option. In truth, it would very much depend on which friend, and the size of their event.

We had a great experience during the tasting and while creating the menu. I wish that experience had also continued to the actual wedding. We chose passed heavy apps throughout the night to keep people up and mingling. Unfortunately, not one time did a single waiter ask if my husband or I would like something. I had several guests say after questioned, "You had that at the wedding, I never saw it?" I had made it very clear to the staff before the wedding that the servers were to come to us frequently and first if possible when bringing something from the kitchen. That never happened. I told this to Pink Avocado after the wedding and she said, "We will have to make this more clear to the servers in the future." Like I told her, you would thing the servers would know to ask the girl in the big white dress and the man in the suit next to her if they would like something to eat when walking around with trays of food. I was extremely disappointed with the service at the wedding and wished I had waited until after the event to give them their tip. I am sure the food was good, for the few guests that flagged down a waiter to get some. I hated that we spent nearly $10K with them and I had 2 fried oysters that someone else brought me. One bright side on this gloomy review...the bartenders were very friendly and attentive! They couldn't figure out how to make one of our signature drinks the entire night, but my wine glass stayed full.

After reading some of the other reviews, I see some were offered a partial refund for the poor service. That would have gone a long way with me, especially since I tipped 20% before I knew how bad the service was going to be.
