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 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!
I was impressed with Brancato's from start to finish! They were very professional and thorough leading up to the event and the day of exceeded even my highest expectations! We did a taco bar and everything was fresh and delicious! The table setup was beautiful and their staff went above and beyond to make sure all of my guests and my groom and I were well taken care of. We also had multiple guests with food allergies which they were able to accommodate. We were absolutely thrilled!
Everything about Brancato's was top notch! Prior to the wedding the coordinator stayed on top of the things, was very organized, and was willing to customize any detail for me. On the day of they arrived on time, were beyond helpful and the food was delicious. They were even a man short; and you couldn't notice!! They also noticed that I had left our cake cutting utensils at home (wedding brain) so they provided my volunteer cake cutters with a knife, bowl of warm water, and a towel; above and beyond. I would highly recommend Brancato's to anyone!
We LOVED Brancati's!! I worked with Laura Swanson on our food for our wedding day and she was SO helpful. She helped me to find the items that we liked while staying on budget. When it got closer to the wedding day I had a different idea for a late night snack- a honey butter chicken biscuit. I told Laura about it and she took it to the chefs to create, played around with a few different options and it ended up being fabulous! All of the food on the wedding day was really good, hot, and guests were able to get through the buffet line really quickly. Highly recommend Brancato's- great service, affordable and excellent food!
I chose Brancato's based on their positive reviews, and several of my friends had used them for their wedding. Emily did an excellent job helping coordinate everything for the catering services at our reception, and the food was outstanding! I actually had several people come up to me and comment on the caliber of food, which I don't think is very common. Emily was easy to work with, and she was super responsive to all of my emails and last minute changes. She worked with us to make the buffet we chose right for our event, and it turned out perfectly. We had around 220 guests at our wedding and people were able to get through the line efficiently so the food was still hot and delicious. I would definitely recommend Brancato's!
I wish I could just order their food on a daily basis. Food and service was exceptional. They presented the food the way we imagined and it was DELICIOUS. I always here how wedding food is usually "ok" but Brancatos definitely proved wrong. Their food was very tasty. They even prepared a special meal for me since I am lactose intolerant. The entire planning was also very good. They made sure they covered all the details and from there all I had to do is focus on myself and they would take care of everything. That's what made my day of a lot easier.
My guests are still raving about the food at our wedding! I had many guests reach out to me and say that it was the best food that they have ever had at a wedding. Emily was very helpful throughout the entire process and always responded quickly. Thank you for helping create an unforgettable night!
Our whole experience with Brancato's was great! The months leading up to the wedding, Brian and Samantha were very easily accessible and all of our questions were answered quickly. They were so accommodating with all of our requests and very friendly. The wedding day was so easy for us, they really made the day flow perfectly! Every looooved the food! Kim was so attentive to us all night and I never had to worry about a thing. Definitely a great caterer to use for any event!
Brancato's was great, everything went as planned and everyone commented on how great the food was.
Everything Emily and her team did was amazing. We were to pick up the linens the day before we decorated, but the steamer had broke and they were there the next day with the linens pressed as promised and helped us place them on the tables before we decorated. Everyone we encountered was so helpful and kind. At the reception, we loved the food, the plated servings to the kids, the band members (so they were ready to play) and the couple. Emily was very easy to work with and answered every question quickly. We put our trust in her and her team that day because of health problems the father of the bride had encountered the night before and they did not disappoint. Such a nice group of people to have work our wedding and help us to the very end, just adding to our perfect day where the father of the bride was able to dance with his daughter.
I started recommending Brancato's to friends long before our wedding day, which is just a testament to how awesome Emily was to work with for the entire ten months of our engagement. Both my mom and I are very detail-oriented, and Emily consistently handled it all so gracefully, promptly, and professionally every single time. When there is already so much detail involved in wedding planning, it makes such a huge difference when you don't have to spend extra time re-explaining detail or correcting changes, etc. In short, Emily was AWESOME. We felt confident from the beginning that our plans would be in good hands and the Brancato's team fully lived up to that on our wedding day three weeks ago. We did a buffet style dinner for 250 guests, and like many other reviewers have said, we still keep getting comments from people about how good our food was. We chose the Chicken Spedini with spinach and Beef Burgundy w/ Mushroom Glaze. (Also their mac n cheese is drool inducing). We also did a cocktail hour before the reception with passed appetizers. Brancato's additionally handled the setup of all guest place settings, cake cutting, had a plate of food waiting for my husband and I after we took sunset photos, and delivered a plate of food to my grandmother's seat (she is not fully mobile). Everything Brancato's handled was smooth and completely hiccup-free; they worked discretely in the background of our event and left us free to just enjoy the evening. I remember in the beginning wondering how we would ever choose what caterer to use, and I could not be more thankful that we landed on Brancato's. They made a huge difference to us both the day of and throughout the whole planning process.
I would very highly recommend Brancato's Catering for any event! Several of my guests approached us and told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had!! My husband and I just got married on October 14th at The Journey Home. We had around 110 guests and did a buffet style meal. We did most of our meal off of their Rustic Table, however I wanted a different type of Chicken (Boursin) and they happily adjusted the menu to be just what we wanted! We got to work with both Brian and Samantha, they communicated quickly and efficiently and were always happy to help answer questions and personalize the experience whenever possible!
We could not have been more happy with Brancatos! First of all, the food was simply amazing and the staff could not have done a better job! I honestly thought they might be out of our budget, but I was way wrong! For a wedding of 300 and a large venue, they beat the prices of everyone else we looked at in Kansas City! Most of all, Laura Hamilton, made our experience perfect! Laura completely took the stress off of us, worked so hard to make our day exactly what we wanted, and kept us informed, every step of the way! I would recommend Brancatos to anyone looking to do a small or large event, and I would highly recommend Laura to anyone who wants their wedding day to be perfect! She is simply amazing! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! - Zach and Erik Dillon-Wray
The food was amazing!!! All my guest raved how good it was! The caterers was awesome; they made sure my groom and I ate. They brought us plates and even sent us home with to go plates! Sam was great at getting everything we needed for our specific food request! She was the best! I will defiantly recommend Brancato's to anyone who ask for a catering company!
Could not have made a better choice for a caterer! Laura S was our main contact person from Brancatos and she was extremely professional, easy to work with, and made the tasting experience so fun! Our guests were so impressed with the quality of the food, overall presentation and how courteous the catering staff was. Outstanding catering service--cannot recommend enough!
Brancato’s was fantastic to work with! The food was delicious, and we received numerous complements on the buffet style taco bar they set up! The table settings were perfect, and the staff was very sweet! Thank you Samantha and Brian for helping us with our best night ever!! So magical! Would definitely recommend Branvato’s and have them for another event!
AMAZING!! We LOVED working with them. Laura Swanson was our contact. She went above and beyond. She helped us make our menu and gave us the ins and outs and gave great advice. She was so helpful and fun to work with. The food was fabulous. I had people two weeks after our wedding texting me about how good the food was. Chicken piccata was bomb. The crew that worked our wedding was fabulous, everything was top notch.
Wonderful. Wonderful. WONDERFUL! We used Brancato's for our wedding this month and we could not be happier with our experience. From day one they were so easy to communicate with -- we worked with Emily R. and she was a GEM. We had several vegetarian and vegan guests (including myself) and it was very important to my husband and me to make sure there were enough options for everyone to feel satisfied. This is not always easy in the midwest and Emily knocked it out of the park. She worked with us to create our custom dream menu and made sure each item was labeled properly on the buffet so that all guests would know which items worked for their dietary needs. All night long I heard how amazing the food was and how SATISFIED all the guests were. Several of our vegan/vegetarian friends and family made comments letting us know how happy they were to have full plates and bellies and to have not been treated like an after thought. One of my best friends told me it was the first wedding she'd been to since deciding to cut meat from her diet where she felt that people cared about her choices and needs. As the bride, it made my heart so happy knowing that this company understood our goals and had our backs on such a special day! The double sided buffet line moved quickly and there was plenty of food for everyone. My husband and I made time to eat a full plate ourselves and I'm drooling right now just thinking about how delicious it all was. The Pumpkin Ravioli and Mini Baked Potatoes were my favorite! But I truly loved it ALL! I HIGHLY recommend Brancato's to anyone planning a special celebration. You will be in very good hands.
Brancatos blew us away with the high quality of food and service. David and I had a great experience working with the staff at Brancatos. Brian was super responsive and fun to work with from planning the menu to finalizing the day of details. Plus, so many people at our wedding complemented us on how much they enjoyed the food! David and I still talk about how good the Lola Salad was!
Amazing!! Laura is the best! So nice and easy to work with! Food was amazing and we had so many compliments. Highly recommended! We had the lasagna, meatballs, veggies and salad and it went over very well with all our guests!
We used Brancato's for our wedding 9/16/17 and they were amazing. Aside from providing amazing food on our buffet , for which I've received numerous compliments on and inquires about, they provided great service. Their employees ensured all empty plates were removed from the tables in a very timely manner and that the buffet remained restocked the entire time. One thing I really appreciated was that their staff prepared a plate for the groom and me so we didn't have to go through the line and could dig in immediately. I thought this was really nice. They worked great with the venue owner and my day of coordinator, so that I as the bride didn't personally speak with them much at all which made for a very relaxing wedding day. To top it all off, their staff went over and above in a HUGE and unexpected way. My ceremony was outside at the same venue my reception was at (where they were setting up). An hour before our ceremony it rained, a LOT. While luckily it subsided about ceremony time our guest's chairs were soaking wet. Their staff paused setting up, had towels they brought because they had seen the weather on the radar, and helped dry off everything to ensure we had the perfect ceremony. This was no where in their job responsibilities and I was so blown away when I heard from my day of coordinator how they all offered helping hands. I can truly say this company will go above and beyond to ensure you're wedding day goes perfect. As mentioned above their food is delicious, I swear you will fall in love with it upon the tasting, which was another factor I felt this place stood above the rest. They let us taste whatever we liked and sent us home with a goodie box of the left overs to enjoy again. I STRONGLY recommend their famous fried chicken-- it's to die for! Their food coupled with the over the top service makes this a clear winner in my eyes. I am so happy we selected them and would do it over again in a heart beat. I feel they were one of the shining stars of wedding vendors we had. I'd recommend them to anyone for any catering need and will use them again whenever I need catering. Thank YOU Brancato's for how special you made our day ! Love, The Logans
From our tasting to the final moments of our reception, Brancatos and specifically Michelle K, were fantastic! Not only was the food great but the service at our reception went above and beyond. We had Brancatos host our cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception with passed appetizers from their "black tie" menu, the reception plated dinner with guests pre-determining their meal from 3 options (seriously...you have to taste the lemon butter salmon...it's incredible), and all of the bar service. Michelle and her team moved swiftly but nearly invisibly throughout the event ensuring drinks were full, plates were hot, and everything was on point. She even saved us some of the cocktail hour appetizers since we weren't present for that portion of the evening. When Isaac and I got caught up with some guests, Michelle gently reminded us that we, "had to eat" and even brought my groom a fresh HOT plate when he couldn't break free of a conversation. Guests were happy with the food, drinks, and service. We were thrilled that we didn't have to worry about a thing during our special day. Worth every penny! They are true pros.
My wedding was 9/3/17 in Lawrence and I worked with Brian and Samantha and they were truly a blessing to work with! Their quick responses and help with every detail made my job easy. Not to mention their food was absolutely a hit.
We had our wedding on 09/09/17 and Broncato's catered our reception. Broncato's went above and beyond . Michelle and the staff were so great ! Friendly and efficient.
For our 125 guest wedding, we had Bracato's catering and could not be more happy! Laura was so helpful and easy to work with. My husband, my mom and I came to Brancato's for a tasting which was incredibly helpful. The appetizers and buffet were delicious - cheese and apple crostini, spicy shrimp; salmon or chicken, roasted potatoes, green beans, and a summery peach-pecan salad. My only regret is that as the bride and groom, we didn't eat more food! The staff was professional, on time and boxed up all the leftovers for us to take home! Thank you, Brancatos!
