I cannot even with how impressed and happy I was with Brancato's for our April, 200 person, buffet style wedding! People are STILL talking about the food two weeks later, and I've asked Emily for a recipe or two myself. Emily was accessible, accommodating, and truly went the... Read More extra mile each step of the way. We got the burnt ends and chicken with basil garlic cream sauce, and my mouth is watering thinking about it. They had amazing passed Hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour; and were sweet enough to save my husband and I a plate as we were taking photos during that time. I am SO happy with their service as well, they had staff on hand to clear plates, refill glasses, and as we had a sweetheart table, we didn't have to worry about a darn thing. There was plenty of food, and I am SO impressed with how smooth of an operation they run! Don't forget they had decor, I cannot even tell you how much money we saved by renting circle mirror plates from them instead of hitting the craft stores. The linens were the perfect colors and had no wrinkles. Two thumbs way up!

Hard no. You get a lot of empty promises when planning a wedding but Brancato's ripped me off hard. First, I went through 3 different associates because the first two quit. My third associate appeared new and somewhat clueless, having to constantly ask other associates questions... Read More but I had no problem with that. My problem was that I upgraded 220-ish red wine glasses, white wine glasses, and champagne flutes for over an extra grand to be set up at each guests seat and Brancato's and I agreed that the Brancato's staff would provide wine service. Well, long story short, the glasses were set out on all of the tables and NEVER USED. They sat on all the guests tables all night and the agreed upon wine service was never delivered. Instead, they used the non-upgraded wine glasses at the bar. The upgraded glasses and flutes sat on the tables all night, empty. I felt ridiculous when I found out that all the tables were cluttered all night with empty glassware, and I felt like an idiot that I paid for glassware that was never used. Brancato's literally never answered my phone calls or emails about it so I clearly was never refunded. Oh and once you sign the dotted line they're basically unreachable. You're on the back burner and they're on to the next. And lastly, the food is so much better at the tasting than it is on your wedding day. We had a steak that was covered in an awesome mushroom bechamel sauce at the tasting; on the wedding day it was a tiny, poor excuse for a steak with the smallest drizzle of sauce. The veggie meal was a seriously amazing buttery heaping bowl of butternut squash ravioli at the tasting, but on the wedding day it was three, THREE, tiny pieces of dry ravioli, lacking any sauce whatsoever. I spent around $14,000 on their catering service for around 220 people and let me tell you, I would gladly have given that to any other caterer in KC. Oh and I almost forgot, they bussed mine and my husbands meals before we even sat down! Our associate was completely and blatantly rude to my bridesmaid when she asked if they could bring us two new plates. There are plenty of other caterers in KC that fulfill their promises, don't rip off their customers, are reachable, and aren't rude.

Working with Brian Ingalls from Brancato’s Catering and his assistant, Samantha, was so easy for the planning of my daughter’s wedding. My daughter decided to postpone her wedding in 2015. Six months later, the wedding was back on and rescheduled for November 4, 2016. The... Read More wedding venue was changed, which changed the entire theme of the wedding. Luckily, Brian had availability so we were able to continue working with Brancato’s. Every question that was asked via email or phone was promptly answered by Brian or Samantha. Since we did a taste testing in 2015, there was no need to redo this. We just met with Brian again to tweak a couple of things and everything was set for the wedding. My daughter is an only child and she is VERY PICKY. We changed the table setting a couple of times as one minute she wanted chargers, the next no chargers, and then back again to having chargers. She wanted the china with the silver rim as silver was an accent color for her Royal Blue, White, and Silver wedding. And she wanted upgraded silverware. Our venue provided the linens so that the room would be set up a day ahead of the wedding. However, Brancato’s has an extraordinary room full of linens to choose from for any event. We had a cocktail hour that had the fresh fruit, cheese, and crackers. For dinner, we chose to have The Elegant Buffet with salad, green beans, garlic mashed potatoes, rosemary chicken, alfredo penne pasta, and Baron of Beef carving station. Everyone at the wedding was surprised at how absolutely delicious everything was and it was all hot even though it was a buffet. By the way, the Italian dressing that they make is out of this world. A lot of guests commented on this and you need to make sure to include this if you have a salad. The green beans and garlic mashed potatoes were a hit with everyone. Brian’s staff were always busy getting coffee, clearing tables, making sure the buffet items were full, etc. Tim was the main contact with the serving staff. He was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the evening. Anything I asked for he was polite and responded promptly. They did an awesome job cutting the cake for guests too. Brian and his staff were amazing and I can only say that if I have another event, I will definitely use Brancatos.
