We cannot say enough about how wonderful Catering with a Twist is. About two months before our wedding, our first venue canceled on us, forcing us to choose a new venue and a new caterer. We contacted Catering with a Twist and they totally worked with us even on our short timetable. They consistently went above and beyond to provide us with custom menus, decor, and service. Every single thing they provided went perfectly. Guests were swooning over the delicious avocado eggrolls, and the watermelon-lime pops were the perfect refresher after our hot outdoor ceremony. Lacy served as our planner and had everything under control so we could just enjoy the evening. The decor turned out perfectly, and the CwaT team even made special themed tables for our food that matched our (quirky) board game theme for the wedding. They are unique, high-energy, and passionate about what they do. You definitely won't find any boring old wedding food here. If I could give them 6 stars on this scale, I would!

We used CWAT for our wedding this past March and I cannot say enough good things about the company and everyone we worked with! They were so easy to work with, very accommodating with our menu choices, so professional, and the food was amazing. The owner, Kassie, is so sweet and always returned my calls and emails almost immediately. My husband and I were blown away with the food during the trial and it was just as good on our wedding day. They made sure to serve us dinner at our table and sent us home with all of the leftovers. We also ordered desserts and had them provide a bar tender. We were so pleased with everything from start to finish and would highly recommend them!

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 in my opinion catering can make or break a event... 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 (at no charge). 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!!!

Catering was a big one! Both my husband and I are foodies and we both really wanted our meal choice to heighten the experience of our wedding rather than just fulfilling a requirement. I kid you not, I communicated with about 15 caterers in the Austin area for about six months prior to booking CWAT. We are PICKY! We were planning an Austin wedding from Houston which was a challange but Beth and Kassie "Boss Lady" made it incredibly easy. They replied to the million and one questions we had promptly and with a kind enthusiasm that showed how passionate they are about their work. I loved that their website, menu choices, and team were spunky and veered away from being a "traditional" wedding vendor. Yes, I even critique a vendor's website, blame the art degree! At our tasting I wasn't feeling well and they packed my meal to go. Even re-heated the food was to die for! We went for a hearty meal since the wedding was in December and we figured our guests would wan't something to warm up their bellies. The appetizers were a hit! Our safety choice of spinach and artichoke dip is still something our guests talk about, it was delicious! You guys, if the dip makes that much of an impact can you imagine the rest of the meal? Everything was fresh, hearty, and served hot. The best part of it all was the team working the event. So polite, friendly, and genuinely happy for us! We also hired them for the bar service and Lisa, our bartender, not only braved the cold but she raved about our beer and liquor choices. Most of our guests are craft beer enthusiasts or enjoy finer spirits, which made for a unique open bar. Lisa had a blast talking to some home brewers in attendance and I always saw her with a smile. She even stayed a bit past her contracted time to continue serving our guests. These guys go above and beyond the call of duty! Even after our event, Kassie emailed us to make sure that everything had gone as planned. They have an amazing team at CWAT!

We found them online and thought that they looked really amazing, easy-going, and that they made delicious food!
When we booked with them, we had the opportunity to create the entire menu, and if we wanted something that wasn't on the menu. They would make it for us!
When we went to the tasting, we could not have been more pleased. We couldn't find one thing to complain about (and I am one of the pickiest eaters out there).
Kassie, the owner, is such an amazing person to work with and she made everything such a breeze!!!
Everyone who attended has remarked on how amazing everything they ate was.
Will definitely be following the progression of their success, because they are going to go FAR!

I want to begin by saying that we were very happy with Catering with a Twist who not only did our food, but was also responsible for coordinating and set up. Kassie Purpura is totally awesome. She worked with us through multiple menu changes and lots of questions. We thought the food turned out amazing! We especially received compliments about the late night popcorn. The total guest count was around 185, so needless to say, they handled a lot for us.
But, like any big wedding, not everything turned out perfectly. About a week before the wedding, I was told that the day of coordinator who sat through our two hour wedding meeting was unable to do the wedding. These things happen, but the new coordinator had to work off someone else's notes. That made for a lot of last minute questions and uncertainties. For the dinner, we had "family style" and the food was brought out one dish at a time (mashed potatoes alone, vegetables alone, entrees alone). That was probably my biggest complaint. And was mentioned by many of our guests.
Overall we were more than happy with our choice. If we had to sum it up in one sentence: The food was fantastic, but our experience with CWAT was far from perfect.

This rating is really probably in between a 3.5 and a 4. Our initial experience was great! We were told they wouldn't be able to accomodate us and then they were. Between when we signed our contract and our event they were in the process of expanding and some of our stuff got lost in the shuffle. The food and presentation at the wedding was awesome! But the bartenders forgot to put out the red wine and didn't refill our koozie tin - we came home with more than half of what we took! Overall I was very pleased but there was definitely room for improvement.

My husband and I are both mega-foodies so catering was probably the most important part of our wedding. Luckily, Catering with a Twist did not disappoint. They offer tons of different options along a wide variety of price ranges.
We decided to go with the buffet serving option with two entrees, two sides, salad and three appetizers. All of the food was amazing! Also, they bring enough of the entrees so that everyone can have some of both - removing the need for guests to enter their menu options on the RSVP card.
Their service was spectacular, and their set-ups are super cute. My only complaint was that our event manager left the company halfway through our wedding planning, and we didn't quite have the same rapport with the new manager.

The CWAT team were a pleasure to work with. They made a point to find out what type of vibe we wanted, our colors and overall theme. They then incorporated that into the food displays. We received many compliments on the quality of the food from our guests.

My guests could not stop talking about how wonderful the food was! We were able to customize our menu and therefor have so many fun options for our guests. The flavors and quality of food were amazing. Not to mention the vintage dishes and serveware that went a long so well with my aesthetic.

Fantastic food, preparation, display, and work staff. Kassie was pro at listening to what I wanted and delivering it at a reasonable price. Wedding reception was picture perfect and I received many compliments not only on how wonderful the food was but how friendly the wait staff was to my guests. I highly recommend considering Catering with a Twist for your wedding reception, you won't go anywhere else.

Catering with a Twist provided awesome service and delicious food for our wedding! Everything turned out perfectly and they were all so easy and fantastic to work with. I would totally use them again!

I worked with Lacy as my day-of coordinator. She was by far my favorite vendor-- she knew exactly how make the day go smoothly-- despite the craziness. I would recommend her to anyone!

If you are looking for something other than "wedding food" these are the guys to go to. Kassie was amazing to work with and her team makes amazing food. We had mexican food and mini tarts served at our wedding and our guests could not stop talking about it all.

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 anyone!

I highly recommend Catering with a Twist. The food was very yummy, very fairly priced, and the service was flawless. We received LOTS of compliments from our guests. I used CWAT for dessert too, and they did an amazing job. Their cream cheese icing is to die for!!

The food was so delicious, the staff was great and the planning was so easy. I love this catering company and I will definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone!

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.

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.

Catering with a Twist was wonderfully kind, personable, and helpful from my first inquiry, tasting, all the changes leading up to the event. Most importantly, they did a great job at our rehearsal dinner and wedding. I knew that I wouldn't have to even worry about the catering once we hired them, and I was right. The staff was great, the food was delicious and we got lots of compliments on the catering. We especially love how unique they are from everything from the food choices to the decor they provided with the displays. Thanks CWAT!
