We hired The Lion and Rose to cater our Renaissance themed wedding after meeting with Shannon and Chef Gabe for a fabulous tasting. Not only were they willing to adjust their menu items to our liking (removing jalapenos, adding salt or spices, etc.) but Chef Gabe and his staff even wore their kilts to fit in with our theme! The food was beyond amazing - guest after guest asked who our caterer was - but their attention to detail was beyond what we could have hoped for! They made sure there were plates of appetizers at the head table and bridal party tables since we were out taking photos. Then the servers even brought out trays of appetizers and drinks to us during the photo shoot. Plus they served the wine for the toast and cut the cake at no extra charge! They were well worth every penny...and just in case you're wondering, their leftovers reheat extremely well! Huge thanks to Shannon and Gabe and the team for making our reception absolutely amazing!
They were all very professional & attentive to the guests’ needs all night long. I received numerous compliments on my choices throughout the night. The food was delicious, fresh-tasting, & hot. I couldn't have been more pleased with the entire experience. Thanks again, Shannon! You're the best!

My daughter picked The Lion and Rose to cater her wedding in New Braunfels on October 29, 2011. I can tell you that she picked the right place!! I worked with Katie for the last 2 or 3 months before the wedding getting ideas, changing the orders around, adding/subtracting people, adding services like our coffee bar and overall keeping in touch before the wedding. Katie, in particular, is a rock star!! She made sure I had what I wanted, when I wanted it. I did not worry about ONE SINGLE THING when it came to the catering. During the reception after everyone had eaten, I got SO many compliments on the food. It was warm, delicious and made especially for us. Everyone knows that the food is one of the most important things to get right for a wedding and we hit the nail on the head!!
A BIG shout out to Katie and her team!! Thanks a million for making my daughter’s wedding a dream for her and even more for me...the free wedding coordinator! :)
The tasting was amazing but the food was even BETTER at the wedding! The wait staff were awesome as well!
We will be recommending you anytime we can! You guys were awesome!
Thank you so much!

We have had nothing but good reports on the catering done on our daughter Krystal’s wedding on May 7, 2011. The service was great! The waitresses served with smiles and were very polite to our guest. They were prompt in refills and in delivering the food to each person. The cooks were amazing and each plate was made to perfection. The manager had everything under control, we didn’t have to worry about a thing.
I am so happy that we chose The Lion & Rose to cater the most important day in our daughter’s life. She was so happy and you helped make that day possible.
The clean up your crew did was surprising. There was no clue left behind that you were there, only great memories. We were amazed! We will definitely use The Lion & Rose for future events and will refer you to friends and family. Thank you so much! Many blessings to all who helped make this day possible.
