What customers are saying about Crave Catering

Excellent job Very easy to work with - offering guidance when asked. Food was outstanding. On wedding day staff was responsive to every detail allowing family to enjoy the day and not worry about any of the many details involved. All the staff was friendly and professional , ESP Kaci and Kim. It was a pleasure using them for my son and new daughter in laws wedding.

CRAVE is amazing and I think every bride should hire them. Before my wedding we meet with a few other companies and nothing compared to Leslie and her amazing team. Our wedding was Nov 10th 2012 and our guests are STILL talking about the Mac and Cheese we had at our wedding. Even my husband mentioned it the other day when we were eating at Lucy\'s Fried Chicken because he had ordered their mac and cheese and he was like \"NOTHING compares to CRAVE.\" I have a crazy mom who doesn\'t catch on to things and they were so patient and explained everything about 100 times. Which as a bride is takes a lot of stress off since Catering for most weddings is the most expensive thing plus important thing at the wedding. LOVE THE TEAM AT CRAVE!!

I\'m pretty sure Crave is the best caterer in Austin! Their food is amazing -- the best of any caterer we tasted. We had so many compliments about how great the food was from wedding guests (no really, we did!) Meredith was fantastic to work with: very responsive and accommodating. She walked through every step of the process with us and presented us with tons of options. The service at the wedding was also fantastic. The waitstaff was extremely attentive to everyone but especially to the bride and groom -- making sure we were fed, had drinks, and even food to-go.

Crave was the perfect catering company for me and my husband. We initially picked them because we wanted to have organic food served at our wedding, and when we found out they used locally grown food as well we were sold! For the year leading up to our wedding I worked closely with Meredith, from finishing up our menu to picking out all the tables, chairs, fabrics and lighting. Meredith was amazing. She made the whole process very easy and answered all of my questions very promptly, sometimes even when I\'d email her after hours. We decided to use Crave\'s day of coordinator service and we\'re so thankful we did. Lauren was a breeze to work with and made the wedding day perfect. Our other vendors even commented on how wonderful she was to work with. Knowing that someone else was in charge of handling all the hiccups on the day of the wedding made it possible for me to take in every moment. Best of all, our guests LOVED the food and service. I had people coming up to me at the wedding and the next day telling me how they hadn\'t had steak that well prepared in years, how much they loved the veggies and how moist the chicken was. I kept laughing at how many people mentioned the beets and potatoes. Not something you us

I could not have had a better experience with Crave, Meredith was amazing. They were responsive to every phone call and email and helped us craft our menu based on all our favorites....brisket meatballs and chicken and waffle sliders were a HUGE hit...mashed potato bar...tenderloin....warm chocolate chip cookies and milk....we had so many compliments on our food. The staff at our event were so helpful and accommodating, I did not have one second of worry with them. Huge sign: when I worried we needed to add a beverage service, I was told I didn\'t need it and didn\'t need to spend the money, speaks so highly of them. I would recommend them to absolutely everyone and anyone.

You want a caterer committed to dazzling your guests on your wedding day: choose Crave! Every member of their team went above and beyond our expectations to suggest a creative menu within our budget, execute it with skill, serve it with imagination, and attend to our guests with genuine care. From our first phone call, Meredith Pollard was not only interested in our business, but interested in US--taking time to understand the flavors, the vibe, the variety we were looking for in our menu and overall event. We immediately knew we were in good hands. She easily met all the requirements of our outdoor venue; made smart suggestions about staging, timing, and presentation; and was flexible with every change that popped up and well-coordinated with every vendor we engaged. This was so helpful since we were planning this wedding from a long distance: all phone calls and emails to Crave were prompt, professional, and pleasant. The tasting was delicious party in itself. And on the wedding day, Crave showed up with an A-team of top-notch chefs, servers, and bartenders, making everything flow smoothly and wowing every guest with the range and quality of unusually good food and drink. Every part of our menu--from the oyster sh

If you haven\'t chosen a catering service yet I can\'t say enough POSITIVE things about Crave and Meredith Pollard. She was an absolute God-Send and kept me sane through the whole process. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND her duties and even put together the margarita mix so I wouldn\'t have to pay the bar tending service an additional $50 to flip a switch! Their food was fabulous and EVERYONE at the wedding was raving about it! You should look her up if you need an awesome caterer. She and her staff were wonderful! They kept Kelly and my glass full all night, served us our plates first at our table so we didn\'t have to go through the line, we had our own waiter who tended to our every need, and they even packed a goody bag of food, champagne, and treats for us that Kelly and I took to the airport for lunch the next day! I simply can not tell you how great they were! :) They thought of everything and exceeded our expectations in EVERY WAY!

We can\'t praise Crave enough for their great food, professionalism, and friendly service. Our wedding was exactly as we had envisioned, and we owe a great deal of the credit to Meredith and the rest of the staff. From our first consultation through our wedding day, Meredith was fantastic! Neither my husband or I had much of an idea about how to plan this event, and she was so helpful in making recommendations regarding the menu, linens, and various wedding logistics. At our request, she even suggested the band we ended up using (which was awesome!) We felt so comfortable in her capability and professionalism throughout the entire process. We knew we were in good hands. The day of the wedding, she did a great job of making sure everything went smoothly. She even loaded up our motocycle\'s saddlebags with a nice array of snacks for our wedding night. The wait staff and bartenders were also wonderful. They couldn\'t have been nicer or more accommodating to us and our guests. Last, but not least, the food was wonderful (especially the appetizers!) We couldn\'t have been more pleased with the quality and service provided by Crave and would highly recommend them.

Crave is AWESOME!!! We had 3 passed apps, deviled eggs, mini mac n cheese bites, and tomato basil soup shots with mini grilled cheese sandwiches. For dinner, we served family style, braised beef short ribs, pecan crusted chicken, scalloped potatoes and green beans. All of our guests kept telling us that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Not only was their food phenomenal, but Meredith was out of this world amazing. She was a big part of why we chose to go with Crave as our caterer. She is so efficient and knowledgeable about the special events industry and truly understands what it takes to throw a flawless event. She helped us with our menu choices, bar options and met with me at the venue to discuss the timeline and layout. She even hand drew a color coded floor plan of the venue! She took care of so much that evening, and it allowed Josh and I to be able to enjoy our wedding and not worry about a thing. Crave is a fantastic catering company and highly recommended!

Our family is composed of \"foodies\", including bride and groom so to impress all of us with the quality and selections of food was a feat! . Additionally, none of us live in Austin so it was very helpful that Crave was flexible and worked around our schedules. The service at the wedding was very professional. When one of the guests decided to raid the bar of a bottle, the Crave staff quietly returned the bottle to the bar and didn\'t embarrass the guest or make a scene. They definitely knew how to handle situations in a discreet way. A wedding postscript: Because the crab cakes were so delicious they were gone before the bridal party got a taste. On the couple\'s first anniversary Crave personally delivered crab cakes (free!) for them and parents to enjoy. Now that is customer driven service! We would absolutely hire them again!

Every step of the way Crave Catering was fabulous. Leslie LaSorsa, a supervisor at Crave, is very knowledgeable and helped me select my linens, glassware and menu and handled every detail for me. She was full of helpful hints about how to have a successful event. All of the waitstaff were nice, clean and gracious. The food met and exceeded my expectations. I received compliments from most all of my guest that it was outstanding. Crave Catering is the way to go!

A Rave for Crave! Let me preface this review by saying I am from New York and I have a career in planning. I try not to be one of ‘those NYers’ but it’s very competitive here so as a culture we have an expectation of excellent service and product. Leslie was put to the challenge for my crazy questions, requests, changes, and everything in between and she delivered it. With champagne. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Leslie and her team, she was truly my Fairy God Mother. Planning from afar was challenge enough but it doesn’t help that I’m detailed and Type A. Leslie provided with me all sorts of visuals and then made recommendations based on her expertise. The wedding turned out to be exactly as I had dreamed and she’s the one who made it happen. The décor was beautiful, everything was done so perfectly and with such care. Her staff was incredibly helpful and friendly to everyone. So you\'re wondering about the food? It was absolutely fantastic (and New Yorkers can be a tough crowd to please, especially on the subject of food). Everything from the sliders, to the salad, to the tenderloin, to the cheesecake lollipops, to the made-to-order chipwhiches were absolutely superb. Our guests did not

Crave Catering is absolutely AWESOME! If you are sitting on the fence--jump down and call them IMMEDIATELY!!!! They are the easiest people to work with I have ever enjoyed working with. We told them what we basically wanted, they gave many helpful suggestions, we tasted the food and was SOLD--hook, line and sinker! EVERYONE we came in contact with at Crave Catering was pleasant, professional and ready to assist in any way. Our event was a reception after our daughters wedding in Hawaii and Crave was exception. The set up was beautiful, the servers were the best ever, and we \"wanted\" for nothing during our party. We ran out of one alcohol that \"everyone\" seemed to be drinking, so they went and picked up more after checking with me--\"Who does that?\" Please do not hesitate if you are in doubt. I am a very thorough person and no job was left undone! Out event went a smooth a silk........ Hint: Try their \"Milk and Cookie Bar\" everyone LOVED IT! LOVE CRAVE CATERING AND WILL USE THEM AGAIN!!!!!!

Crave is the best. Shannon helped me through the whole process and when price became a concern, she helped me adjust my menu without cutting back on quality. They even came out to the house where I got married to look at where everything would be. Another friend of mine just got married in May and also used them. We are talking about using Crave for upcoming holiday parties.

I loved CRAVE! They truly are the best! The best advice I can give is to pay the extra fee for the assistant. Everything went perfect for us and Leslie handled every little detail like a pro. The food was amazing. Our guests still pay us compliments on the food. The biggest decision for your wedding is picking your caterer. These guys do it all, and really allow you to enjoy the experience. As soon as our wedding was over, we were planning our next party that we could do with CRAVE!

Loved working with Crave Catering and Leslie. I really felt like Leslie was attentive to all of my requests and went out of her way to make my day special. She even stayed late or went into work early to be able to talk with me in Hong Kong.

Leslie at Crave Catering helped us coordinate a luncheon this summer for my mom\'s small wedding with about 35 people in my home. She was so helpful with ideas and recommendations. The chef prepared us a wonderful tasting in the beginning that was actually a wonderful, meal-sized tasting. The food was delicious. The staff was so kind. Everyone at our event asked me who did the catering and raved about how wonderful it was and how beautiful the presentation was. Thank you, Leslie! I have told many people how great you were and am happy to leave this review to let people know that they can count on having a wonderful event if they employ Crave Catering. Best Wishes!

I cannot say enough about Crave and the outstanding job they did for my daughter\'s wedding at Villa Antonio on 10/13/12. From the moment we met them over a year ago, the food sampling was great and Meredith....well Meredith was amazing. Once we signed our contract it was several months before the work started. For the last couple of months before the wedding Meredith went above and beyond to help us plan the wedding...the food, set up, time line, everything. She did not hesitate to help out. The day of the wedding, we had to change things a little due to weather and she was outstanding and it went off perfectly! I had guests coming up to me all night telling me how wonderful the food was and how nice and polite and helpful the staff was. I would recommend Crave to anyone for your event. AWESOME!!!! Our wedding was perfect thanks in large part to Crave!

I first have to say I got engaged and immediately left 3 weeks later to move to Germany. In 3 weeks I was able to find Crave from their great reviews and they were flexible to schedule a meeting and taste testing, which if you\'re planning a wedding that timing is incredible! Meredith was wonderful the entire process. The tasting was set up professionally and we had many menus to choose from. Meredith was always available via email and answered our many questions. The day of the wedding was perfect! I felt we\'ll taken care of and my husband and I never had to lift a finger. Crave made sure they set aside appetizers and our favorite cocktails and served us in a private area right after the ceremony. It gave us 5 minutes alone to soak in the moment and the delicious food we chose! The whole staff was friendly and truly cared about your wedding. Our guest had nothing but good things to say about the food and service!

We had NO wedding planner and Crave helped us so much more than just creating outstanding food for our brunch. Everything was very well thought through and we could not have pulled this wedding off without Crave...

About a month before my wedding, the original caterer I was going to use went under and I had to find a new caterer - and fast! Crave Catering stepped up to the plate and did an amazing job!! We were thrilled with how all the food came out on the day of the wedding and all of our guests said the food was excellent! Thanks for making our day perfect with all the details you helped with!

The crave team could not have done a better job! They made our dreams of a carnival themed wedding come to life! Their staff went above and beyond on everything. Even down to helping me with my dress for a last minute emergency bathroom break before the ceremony! They even got red and white stripped ties at their own expense to make the feel pop! I will definitely use them again for parties and recommend them to all I my bride to be friends!

To team at Crave did a phenomenal job at our wedding! EVERYONE was commenting on how delicious our food was- from the beef medallions with the awesome chimichurri butter to the mini banana cream pies at the dessert tables that I am still dreaming about! The service was beyond excellent. One thing that really impressed upon me was that they sent a huge take home bag for the bride and groom for after the wedding because they consider that the couple often doesn\'t eat enough at the wedding. I also asked Crave to make the chalkboards and they looked perfect! Thank you, Crave, for making such delicious food and providing amazing service on what was the most amazing day of my life!

Crave did such an AMAZING job for our BIG day. When I told Leslie that I was a Bride on a Budget, she made me feel like she took it as a challenge to make it happen and never once told me that my budget was impossible, etc. I cannot tell you how many compliments my guests gave about the food---seriously, nothing but rave reviews! I was a very \"hands-off\" bride and really did not know what in the world I was doing. Shannon was sooo patient with me, gave me great ideas, and even went with me to pick out my linens!! I basically told her what I had in mind and she and her team took care of EVERY detail on my wedding day. SUCH A RELIEF!!! I would HIGHLY recommend Crave catering to anyone who is looking of helpful, honest and reliable people who really make you feel like your day is truly important to them!!!
