Very displeased with this company. The food was great, yes but not worth how much money it costs AT ALL. Our wedding guest complained that the staff was not friendly and felt rushed to leave. Our wedding cake was the ugliest thing i'd ever seen. Publix has better cakes than I had. I was told it would be full of beautiful fall leaves all over the cake and it would fit perfectly with our fall theme...well it was a 3 tiered white cake with about 10 little leaves spread throughout the whole thing!!!! It was awful...all I could see was white. No one liked the cake on looks but the flavor was ok. Oh and I would have liked to have the top of my cake to be put in our freezer for us to eat a peice on our anniversary next year but thanks to avante that didn't happen either. We got the top of our cake given to us thrown in a box with our left over cake and ALL the fondant was shaved completely off the cake and just thrown in there on it's side. Also, they completely left out the grooms cake!! There are better caterers out there that don't charge a life's fortune for food and bad service and actually care about how things go after the fact.

Our wedding day was fabulous as expected. The food was outstanding and our setup was beautiful. All our guests were very happy! We would recommend Avante to anyone!

My wife and I just had our wedding and Avante catered our reception. The food was excellent and just about everyone commented about how much they enjoyed it. The cake was delicious and looked amazing. In addition the service was great. We highly recommend Avante.

Food was cold, meat was tough. Staff was slow to clear away plates. When they cut the cake they took the whole cake away and then brought back a few slices and put it on what was the buffet table. Taste was just ok. We stopped at a drive thru on the way home, we were still hungry.

We hired Avante Catering for our wedding in Atlanta. The reason we specifically picked them is because they said we could bring some traditional dishes and deserts of our own (that took days to prepare btw). They said "Not a problem at all". At the event they wouldn't let us put ANY of the food out. My parents were very sad and disappointed about this. They should be ashamed for this! I would not recommend this company to anyone, don't let them ruin your special day.

we just hosted a wedding for our youngest daughter. We chose Avante Catering as our caterers. The owners and staff treated us like family. They quieted our fears and and answered all our questions no matter how silly. The food was out of this world. Everyone came up to us to compliment the food. Everything was superb. The service was spectacular. Thank you so much for making this a true fairy tale wedding.

A month before my wedding in May, the caterer we had booked flaked out. I called Avante catering who assured me they could help. I went in right away for a wonderful tasting & hired them on the spot. Out of all the vendors on my wedding day, Chef Gregory and his staff were the best. They made sure every detail was taken care of, they were professional, friendly and just downright sweet. The food is excellent and their pricing is much more reasonable than other caterers in the area. Thank you so much Avante Catering!
