About Us

Randolph, Massachusetts, was forever changed with the formation of the family owned and operated catering and event space, The Lantana.

To-be-weds can welcome more than 300 guests to enjoy a beautiful ballroom wedding reception.

The same devotion to family, and commitment to delivering exceptional service, was inherited by the original owners' son. For more than four decades, The Lantana has thrived under the direction of the Hart family and aims to continue their legacy with many more weddings and catered events. More than $2 million has been invested into more than 40,000 square feet of space.

On 10/15/16, I attended Vanessa & Calvin's wedding at The Lantana in Randolph. In addition to their beautiful ceremony, the reception "topped off" their special day and our tummies!!

Lantana's Wait Staff offered us Chicken or short-rib Beef and because I eat chicken all the time, I selected their Beef and boy, oh boy did I hit the jackpot!! :-) While I've had Beef at other venues, I always seem to end up with it being cooked "rare" and it disgusts me. But, I was fabulously, surprised and continually wiped my plate (with those tender red potatoes) to clean up that delicious grave, too! Some folks, at my table, even shared a "tiny" portion of their Beef with those who requested Chicken to have them taste it, too! Ultimately, I only wish that Lantana's had a restaurant whereby I could come for lunch/dinner and do it all over again & again!!! KUDOS to their Chef and staff! THANKS very much!!!!! --Etlyn S.

Also, we had a very small budget but they tried to include as much things as possible with our price. They are also SUPER FAST in response of any of your messages/emails/questions (which is MAJOR plus!). I couldn't have asked for a better venue. Also, on the day of the wedding, Esther and Jimmy our Matre D' took care of me and they were on top of things. Esther always made sure I was doing okay and not stressing and she made everything perfect for me. I did not stress AT ALL on the wedding day (which is rare it seems like...listening to all these horrible bride-zilla stories). Esther made it possible and I had a stress-free and fun wedding!!! Also, the food is AMAZING! they're food was so delicious nothing like what I've had at other weddings. It was hard to chose one thing to offer our guests when we went to their food tasting because everything was very tasty. I will definitely recommend this place (and have been) to anyone!!!
