the BEST, very BEST caterer in Central Texas! 11/1/2011

I cannot say enough good things about Pink Avocado and would give 10 stars if that were an option! I am a novice party planner but had to put together a large event with a special menu to accommodate guests with serious celiac disease. Not only did Pink Avocado not bat an eye at my request, the food was absolutely delicious, and nobody even knew that it did not contain wheat OR dairy! (We had the nopalito enchiladas which I HIGHLY recommend - delicious!) My order was a drop-off only, but when the food arrived, I was shamefully unprepared in many ways, and Pink Avocado came to the rescue, going above and beyond helping me keep the food warm til it was time to be served. (Thank you Tina!!!) Bottom line, however, was the quality and taste of the food, and it was superb! I'm getting emails from guests asking me who was the fantastic caterer - it was THAT good! This must sound like an advertisement, but I promise that it's sincere. These folks are professionals in every sense of the word. LOVE THEM! (I should also mention that they were less expensive than other caterers I looked at ... making them a standout in every way!) Pros: null Cons: null more

Above and Beyond! 11/17/2010

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. more

A New Fan of Pink Avocado 6/29/2009

Definitely not your standard wedding fare! This was my first experience with PA, and they were really a pleasure to work with. I lucked into using PA by booking Palm Door, where they are in-house caterers. I would use them again when in need of a caterer, and certainly would recommend them. Pros: delicious, inventive menu and really beautiful presentation Cons: wait staff could be more knowledgable more

I would give no stars if it were an option! 3/23/2009

My wife and I went to the Palm Door for a SxSW day showcase we were looking forward to on Saturday which the Pink Avocado were catering (go figure they reside in the same building). The showcase was put on by KEXP, an awesome radio station out of Seattle. Since they were out-of-towners I guess the Pink Avocado felt they could take advantage of them and their Seattle patrons - as well as all the guests that packed the place. We arrived later in the day - around 4:00pm or so. We ordered a couple of 12 oz Lone Star bottles, a very affordable TX beer. Well, not in this case... after the Pink Avocado employee placed the beers on the counter and opened them my wife had a $5 bill out (this is not a high commodity beer by any stretch of the imagination, $5 will easily buy you a 6-pack of it, maybe a 12-pack in some instances).... the annoyed employee said, "$10."... to which we replied surprised but nicely, "$10 for two Lone Stars?" She said, "Yes, they're $5 a piece," not so nicely I might add. We paid, didn't tip and walked away in shock. It took a good 15 minutes for me to stop bitching about it while the band was playing. I sent a text to a friend about how much we just paid for two Lone Stars to which he responded with, "That's Communist!" It's actually Pink Avocado taking advantage of a situation and many out-of-town patrons who don't know any better. I highly suggest boycotting this place and letting anyone you know who works there that they are in fact a Communist and should relocate to Cuba. Pros: Nice t-shirts Cons: Everything else! more

Always Fantastic! 5/24/2008

We have used Pink Avocado for a couple of fundraisers now and Brent and his team never cease to amaze! Fantastic food - those spring rolls are unbelievable, excellent service - on time, professional, the food is innovative, tasty and out of the ordinary. True gems of Austin - keep up the great work! Pros: Excellent service, Fantastic Food Cons: None more

? 4/2/2008

I emailed Brent in regards to my wedding in June and he seemed nice, I met with him on a Tuesday at a Starbucks and we discussed the menu, which went well, nothing too fancy just a simple, casual wedding in South Austin. Brent told me to call him at the end of the week with a decision so that we could fit in a tasting at my house before his appts with South by Southwest. I emailed him that Friday, he said he was very busy and would not have time until after SXSW. Completely understandable, but then I never heard from him again. Slightly disappointed but his menu seemed good, with good prices. Not quite sure what happened. more

super awesome 12/17/2007

brent and his staff just catered my wedding and i have to say- they're fabulous! right from the first meeting, he was great to work with- we made a great 'tapas-style' menu and not only was he able to suggest a ton of yummy things from his repertoire, but also had no problem creating my special requests. he also had a lot of great suggestions about serving style, to make the meal feel more like tapas and less like appetizers. the food turned out fabulous and i had so many compliments from guests. brent and co. went out of their way, above and beyond just food, to make our day perfect. the owner of the venue where we were married was a bit difficult to deal with, so brent came and met with her to iron out all details and even surveyed the property and suggested that he make signs, bring garnish for the bar, etc. with all the planning that went into the wedding, it was nice to have him ensure that nothing was forgotten or overlooked. the day of the wedding, it rained right up until 15min AFTER we were supposed to start, but that didn't deter him and his staff- i think they set-up and broke-down all of the tables 3x before it finally stayed dry. the price of his full-service catering was fabulous, too. he definitely helped us stay within our budget. he was also super-communicative and easy to get a hold of via email and phone for any changes or requests i had. Pros: genuinely good people, great service and awesome food Cons: none more

Great customer service - WONDERFUL food!!! 12/14/2007

This was my first time catering a dinner party for our firm. We had about 20 people with varying tastes and "requirements". From the first time on the phone with Brent, he helped my through my green experience. We spoke on the phone and via email for weeks before I finally met him the day before the party. So that part of the experience was GREAT. Then came the food - the food was FANTASTIC!!! How can one place have great customer service AND great food!!! The appetizers were so popular that people couldn't tear themselves away to start eating dinner. Then dinner was served and all night and today people have been commenting to me how wonderful everything was - the spice level was perfect, the choices, the seasonings, the centerpieces, the service. I could go on and on. I will end by saying I highly recommend this gem of a catering service. Don't miss an opportunity to hire them for your next event. Pros: great food, great service, great choices - all A+++ Cons: NONE - seriously!!!! more

Above & Beyond My Expectations 5/13/2007

AWESOME!! AWESOME!! AWESOME!! That's how I feel about Brent's catering. I needed a caterer for my wedding reception at my house. From the very first phone call Brent made me feel at complete ease, he got exactly what I was saying and wanting. Our theme was Tropical Luau and he delivered it exactly with class. He brought over samples of the menu and I was hooked...his food was unbelievable and he listened to every little detail that I wanted. The night of the party he and his crew came in and took over everything and all I had to do was relax and enjoy. His staff was so attentive and friendly and professional, all of our friends were so impressed. I can't imagine ever using another caterer...he's the one! Pros: Everything...he kept within our budget Cons: none more

Fantastic food and amazing service! 4/3/2007

I used Brent to cater our Christmas High Tea party this past holiday season. He was so easy to work with and came up with really great ideas. His food was so tasty, I'm still getting compliments. He goes above and beyond the call of duty. He so impressed one of my friends, that she had him also cater her Christmas party just a few days later and he was able to do it on short notice and in amazing fashion as well, she picked a more traditional menu of dinner foods and it was all SO good! I used to be a bridal consultant in the San Francisco Bay Area and he rivals some of my best caterers there! Use him with confidence! Pros: Tasty food, works within your budget, really friendly and professional Cons: None! more
