Catering with a Twist
When I first began planning my wedding, one of my biggest frustrations was with trying to find a caterer. I was planning a wedding for a Saturday night, so many of the caterers I researched had a completely unreasonable catering minimum. I stressed. I yanked my hair out. I considered getting married in Vegas instead. Enter Kassie of CWAT. Within minutes of meeting with her, I knew she was somebody that I would like to work with - just a total sweetheart and a really cool lady. Then she started bringing food out to my then-fiance and I and we knew we had found our caterer. Our menu was just fun! I'm talking chicken & waffle bites, meatloaf cupcakes, salads with grilled peaches, stuffed pork loin with bacon gravy, and some ridiculously good mac and cheese. And those are just the highlights! Everyone raved about how good the food was, and I have finicky friends. Not only was the food excellent, but the service was flawless as well. The staff was attentive, but not obtrusive at all. They dressed to match our theme, which I thought was really great! Also, since I had a "vintage/rustic" theme going on, the mismatched antique china really helped tie everything together. And I used a ton of mason jars in my decor, so when Kassie told me she could serve our tea and water in mason jars instead of goblets, I was pleased as punch! And remember how I mentioned I was on a tight budget? We were able to afford a full seated dinner with two entrees, two sides, a salad course, bread, and passed appetizers and still have room left over to upgrade our service to the mismatched antique plates. Their pricing is downright SANE, and if you've looked around at caterers much, I probably don't need to tell you what a rarity that is. Throughout the planning, the weeks leading up to the wedding, and the wedding itself, Kassie and her staff were WONDERFUL to work with, going above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was awesome. And it totally was. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.
CWAT catered our wedding and provided our yummy desserts too! Not only was their food delicious but it looked awesome too. Their place setting packages are especially great - convenient and a lot of variety. We chose the antique package which was perfect with our vintage theme. Kassie and her staff are super detail-oriented and just all around lovely to work with!
Catering with a Twist was a joy to work with, and their food was awesome. Kassie was very professional and helpful, giving me lots of support and advice through the entire planning process. Their staff was professional and kind, and my guests definitely appreciated it. I would recommend Catering with a Twist to anyone who is planning an event and loves great food!
We hired Catering With a Twist for our wedding reception and they were WONDERFUL! Kassie was so great to work with and everyone raved about the food. We lived out of state, so we were unable to do a food tasting prior to the wedding - we told CWAT sort of what we wanted and then put our blind faith in them that everything would turn out okay. Best gamble we made: they FAR exceeded our every expectation! The food was amazing, the catering staff was very professional and friendly, and they made sure my husband and I had MORE than enough to eat during the night.
We could tell they truly take pride in their work and take care to make every little detail perfect for their client. We highly recommend them to...
Catering with a Twist is awesome! Every bride deserves vendors who make her feel like their only client, and with as busy as CWAT is, they managed to make us feel that way! They really cared about our wishes, and delivered, with lots of flexibility. Kassie was also great handling my huge rental order along with the catering, which is an enormous job. And how our guests raved about the food. We've heard over and over how it was the loveliest wedding they'd ever been to - with food that was absolutely incredible. I cannot recommend Catering With a Twist enough!!
5 Billion Stars to Catering With A Twist!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the them! Absolute perfection!!! I researched and met with quite a few catering companies for my wedding. I love food, so I know that catering can make or break a reception... I knew I was in good hands from the moment I walked into the office... Not only is the food AMAZING, they know their stuff and go above and beyond your normal catering company. Out of all the vendors I researched for my wedding, they were hands down the best! Beth was always quick to respond to any of my questions and they were genuinely excited about my event. They were easy to work with and happy to add some of my own personal touches. They are truely top notch and I have recommended and will keep recommending them to anyone and everyone... I appreciate your creativity and professionalism throughout the planning and execution of our wedding! Thank you so much for adding a "TWIST" to our special day!!!
Hands down, the greatest catering I've ever had or seen or been in the same building with. I'm a fat kid, so I love me some food. The most important and memorable weddings, to me, are the dress, the overall experience, and the food. CWaT worked with my budget to get us the exact meal and meal timing we wanted at our wedding, their communication was thorough and clear, the service package we got was the exact level of comprehensive we needed, the food itself had me nearly in tears, and it all fit with our style perfectly. On top of all of this, the staff was dancing in the kitchen to our DJ's music after dinner was over (I was in there converting my dress for the reception), which says to me that they all truly love what they're doing. If you are looking for amazing food with personality, if you need to feed people in style, if you, like me, had no idea what you were doing going into your wedding food, or if you know exactly what you want and you want someone to "get your vision" as the phrase goes, Catering With a Twist should absolutely be your first and only stop. If I could have them just cater the party that is my life, I would be the happiest and best fed person you could ever hope to meet. I'm going to make all my friends use them so I can keep eating the food.
WOW!!!! I could not have been more pleased with CWT, who catered my son and his bride's wedding last weekend!!! Kassie was amazingly creative and easy to work with -- while at the same time giving expert and professional advice. The bar and serving staff on the day of the wedding were superb -- friendly, fun, and professional!!! The food was excellent -- fresh and well prepared!! The table settings and food displays were lovely!!! The team paid perfect attention to the wedding time line, having the champagne poured into glasses at precisely the right time for the evening's speeches and toasts. I truly could not have asked for more -- great job, Kassie and crew!!!!!
I just got married this past Sunday and used Catering with a Twist as my caterer. My husband and I could not have been more pleased. We loved the food and received so many compliments about how wonderful and creative their food was. Beth was absolutely amazing.. she answered any questions I had quickly and was always positive and professional in her correspondence. I would recommend anyone who is having a an event and wants food that is familiar and delicious but yet served in a fun and creative way to use Catering with a Twist!
Catering with a Twist went above and beyond in every aspect of making our day perfect. They were very responsive & accommodating working with us closely on every detail throughout the process. The owner truly cared and wanted to make sure we were happy with all of decisions we were making. On our big day the staff was ready to serve and there was not one moment we were in need of something. Beyond the service, the food and presentation were something out of a magazine. We could not have asked for a more perfect outcome. We highly recommend meeting with this unique caterer for any occasion.
Catering with a Twist catered my recent wedding and I could not be happier with their services. They were always professional and prompt to respond to my emails and phone calls. They were very responsive to working within our wedding budget and brought decor that matched our weddings theme. I cannot say enough good things about the amazing service during the wedding. They were so efficient and professional. They truly went above and beyond by expectations for our catering package.
Catering With a Twist created the most perfect dinner for the guests at our wedding reception. They were very cooperative, making adjustments to help us afford a great meal and working with our dietary needs along the way. Their basic packages are awesome, but Catering With a Twist was also willing to work with us to create a meal that was true to our taste palette. I loved the meatless meatloaf, as a vegetarian bride, and their scrumptious dishes satisfied all of our guests. The atmosphere and professionalism that the crew provided on the day of the wedding was exactly the kind of good vibrations that any bride would want to work with on her big day. What a great team!
Catering with a Twist was amazing! From the planning process to the day of, everyone was so nice and attentive. Kassie is very professional and very creative. She had so many fun ideas that she incorporated into her service to match my theme. She even contacted my florist to see what flowers he was using! The stations that they set up for food really seemed to be part of the decor and not just white linen tables with food trays.
And all of the servers were happy and friendly. You could tell that they were having a good time and loved what they were doing.
And the food was amazing! Everything tasted so great and I got compliments all night on how delicious everything was.
Kassie and her team did an amazing job. I would definitely recommend them for any event you catered.
The staff was awesome. Catering with a twist was very willing to work with us on choosing the best options for our budget. The food was amazing....we received so many compliments about the appetizers and the main dish(which stayed hot and did not get cold while serving). They decorated their tables to match the colors of the wedding which I thought was great because it fit so well with the decor.
Catering with a Twist is AMAZING!!!!
They made everything so easy. We set up a tasting with them and emailed the menu of what we would like to try. The food was outstanding! One of their Chefs came out and went over the foods and explained some options. We finalized our menu and decided on all the details. Their options were awesome.
At our reception the food was unbelievable! Oh my goodness, I wish they could cook for me everyday at home! The staff was phenomenal! They were so professional, friendly, and at tentative to details.
The best part.....they packed us a to go dinner in a very cool reusable grocery bag with their logo on it. So when me and my hubby arrived to our honeymoon destination we were able to enjoy their fabulous meal again!
I am so looking forward to using Catering with a Twist again for future events!
You have to use their services! This will be one less thing you will have to stress about, trust me.
Great during planning but as for the actual event, their performance was lacking. Not enough staff on hand, unorganized and the service provided was not as stated in the contract.
My wedding went over well enough but the catering services provided were certainly not to my...
Vendor response to review
This was an unfortunate breach of contract situation, where the client failed to pay in the alloted time stated on the contract which forced Catering with a Twist to make a tough decision whether or not to even provide services. However in our hearts we could not let anyones wedding go without food and services, especially after creating a relationship.
Our standard procedure is a minimum of 1 service member per 25 guests, Rebekah received 2 management personnel for 30 guests.
First of all, you won't find a better, more diligent or productive email correspondant than Kassie from Catering With a Twist. From the moment my fiancee and I chose them to cater our wedding reception on 11/4/11, she proved to be incredibly helpful and amenable. We made numerous changes along the way as our wedding budget and plan for the feel of our reception evolved, but never at any point was Kassie anything less than understanding, patient and extremely accommodating. You won't feel as though you're alone in the planning stages of your big day, or like you are being a bother by asking questions as they inevitably arise.
CWAT has a wide array of menu options to fit any price range, from informal to elegant with different levels of place settings to match, so you can really personalize your event based on taste and budget.
We chose the Tuscan Romance menu, which featured an antipasto display of cured meats, breads, dried fruits, etc., caesar salad, four cheese manicotti and trout with rosemary and white beans. Everything was delicious! Shortly after my wife and I made our official entrance at the reception, a Catering With a Twist staff member rushed over full plates of food for us to immediately begin enjoying. Which we definitely did! Very prompt service.
Also, to save a little money we opted to supply beer and wine for the reception ourselves, and needed a TABC-certified bartending staff which Catering With a Twist made available. I would be remiss not to mention how incredibly courteous and complimentary they were the entire night. Our guests couldn't stop telling us how great they were.
Nothing but the best to say about Catering With a Twist. So very highly recommended.
Kassie and her staff (especially Kyle) were so awesome! They took such great care of all our guests and the food was fantastic! The staff went above and beyond customer service and made our wedding reception a night to remember. Catering with a Twist will FOREVER be my "go to" caterers!
I used Catering with a Twist for my wedding and they were a great choice! I shopped around with several caterers before selecting Catering with a Twist. Kassie was awesome at helping me pick out my menu. I also used them for China rental since my venue did not include it. Food was delicious and service top notch!
They were very easy to work with. They took everything we wanted and the colors of our wedding and made it better than we could have hoped for.
We had heard of Catering with a Twist from a local wedding website and we could not have been happier to stumble upon Kassie and her team. My husband and I were looking for upscale bbq and Kassie and her team nailed it. The antique china was the cherry on top and many people commented on our place settings at the wedding. If you're looking for quality food from people who love what they do Catering with a Twist should be your first top in the catering department.
Catering With a Twist was a recommendation from our wedding coordinator and we are so glad they were our caterers! Kassie was great about emails and answering all my questions. We had Mexican food at our wedding and it was delicious. Kassie and her staff were professional, provided quality service and did a great job! You guys rock!
Loved Kassie she was amazing the food was perfect and her professionalism was amazing i am so happy that i found her! the price was perfect we used her for the rehearsal dinner and the reception....i couldn't have asked for a better group they were amazing!
Kassie and her team did such a great job! The food was delicious and we received many compliments from our guests about it. They were very professional and their service was exceptional. Our venue was rather small considering the number of guests we had and so we had to get creative with seating and where we were going to put the buffet. Kassie was not only understanding and patient, but offered the perfect solution to our space issue. Thanks, Kassie!
I have been the photographer at weddings and events where Catering with a Twist was serving. Love their service and creativity. They truly like t think outside the box. If you are looking for a caterer that excels in service, quality food and lots of creativity...Catering with a Twist is a great choice!
I'm a venue owner and I can't say how much I adore Catering With A Twist. I first fell in love with their vibe, so upbeat, so fresh! THEN I tasted their FOOD! OMG! Everything from light hors d'oeuvres to their pasta to their Tuscan fish with white beans, to their prime rib, and more! just delicious, every time! I love their thoughtful, creative presentation. I truly admire owner Kassie's dedication and the CWAT team's attentiveness and great energy, both professional and delightful to work with, all at the same time! I can't wait to work with them again; more chances to Eat Their Food!!!
Kassie, you receive (my) Timo.DJ’s “Best since 1988 Caterer Award”! In all of my DJ’ing years, YOU ARE THE BEST!……..It’s hard to find what I found in Catering with a Twist in any other caterer. You’ve sparked something in my (overall) experience with Catering with a Twist that is so different from any other caterer I have worked with. …….. I believe the word “Twist” in your name refers to a number of things like: palate-pleasing food, creative presentation, a fun & smiling staff and professional service! …….. As a fellow professional, what speaks loudest that I know I AM REFERRING THE RIGHT CATERER is when my Bride says: “Hands down, the greatest catering I've ever had or seen… On top of all of this, the staff was dancing in the kitchen to our DJ's music after dinner was over, which says to me that they all truly love what they're doing...” I agree with her statement. If your staff is happy behind the scenes, then that will translate to a more than satisfied Bride & Groom (and to their guests) who are all “in the scene”. …….. Thank you for bringing your Twist on catering to the State of Texas! …….. I will continue to refer you and can't wait to be on your Team again, Kassie. BRAVA & BRAVO! Your DJ, Timo.DJ
It's rare that we actually see our food displays in action, so it was very exciting to see how well Catering with a Twist used bright veggies to really make the display pop! Plus, we got to try some of their other goodies, including the beef wellington bites, that were delicious! Working with Kassie and the rest of the team is always a pleasure!
Catering with a Twist never ceases to amaze me! They go above and beyond any other catering service I know of. They have an adorable package were they wear coordinating 50's aprons, a photographer's dream. They also know how to cook some AMAZING food! I have worked with them on numerous occasions and every time they deliver excellence, memorable food and a SMILE!
