  • We chose Above and Beyond not just because they were a preferred catering at The Grand Hall but we knew they did such a great job for my brother-in-law's wedding three-years-ago. Kayla really went the extra mile for us and I can’t tell you how much that meant to making our wedding day be absolutely perfect. We appreciated Above and Beyond being flexible with our budget and prompt with any correspondence. They even accommodated us for multiple tastings, so we could perfect the menu. For our menu, the chef even made a special sauce at our request! Kayla worked with the timeline of our reception, especially when we started the cocktail hour earlier than planned. She attend our final meeting at our reception venue, which was so kind of her to do. At the wedding, the buffet looked amazing, the food was incredible and still being talked about by our guests. Guests also complimented us about the great service they received during dinner. Kayla was there with us all along the way to m... Read more

  • Roxanne, you and your team CRUSHED IT. The food that Above & Beyond prepared and served at our reception was delicious, plentiful, and served so beautifully and expediently (particularly given the large crowd and unique venue setup!). I can't thank you enough for your help in providing a delicious meal and setting to our friends and family. Your staff were so pleasant and helpful, even when they had been on their feet for hours and hours and transporting all of the material in from outside in the cold! What incredible food served by an incredible crew! Thank you from Mr. & Mrs. Morris!

  • Roxanne and her team were amazing. Above & Beyond came up with a specialty "pasta cup" for our menu, simply based on a conversation we had during our initial consultation. Our guests raved about the food and we couldn't have been,ore pleased with the set up they created...it fit beautifully in with our color scheme and theme. And, the fact that we were able to work with then from Minnesota...I would recommend them and definitely use them again for any event I had to plan.

  • I can not say enough good things about Above and Beyond Catering, but I will say that their name is spot on accurate. We decided to keep it simple for our meal, and we only offered one choice for the main dish: Rosemary Chicken. Then we offered the garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans for our side, plus a salad and roll. It was as fabulous the day of, as it was when we did our tasting. Not only did my groom and I think so, but I received so many rave reviews from our guests I lost track, including both sets of parents. The chicken and mashed potatoes stole the show for most people, but even the salad was above and beyond amazing with fresh colorful vegetables and greens far better than your average iceburg salad. On top of amazing food, their presentation of it all was beautiful and added to our venue decor in such a complimentary way. It was their incredible service that really stood out to me though. They made a point of checking in with me to make sure I ... Read more

  • Above and Beyond Catering was wonderful and we received so many compliments on the food and presentation after the wedding. Roxanne was great to work with and very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. I would recommend this business to anyone looking for high quality food and professional catering for their event .

  • Above & Beyond was wonderful to work with both before and during our wedding reception. They were the only caterer in Kansas City I could find that listed their pricing on their Web site - financial transparency is very important to me! I appreciated everything they did to make our wedding food exactly what my husband and I wanted at a very reasonable price. To top it off, the food was outrageously good. We had so many compliments after the reception.......still getting them to this day. We couldn't have chosen a better caterer.

  • The name of this caterer - Above & Beyond - says it all. The staff went out of their way to make our event everything we wanted. We were working within a budget, and they kept that in mind while providing unique and delicious items. Every member of the staff were professional and caring, making sure that each detail was handled before and during our event. Patrice and her staff took the stress out of all things related to our menu, as well as set-up, tear down, keeping guests happy, and making sure that we (the bride and groom) had something to eat before the evening got away from us. They even responded to some food allergy restrictions without any additional charges or irritations. We want to tell everyone we know about how wonderful this group was.

  • On May 4th I had an event that was supposed to be catered by Above and Beyond Catering. We had a signed contract for $2500 and rendered my payment months in advance. With less than two weeks before my event, Roxanne Strub contacted me and told me that she wasn’t not going to honor our original contract and eventually bailed on my event completely. She never showed up. I have dealt with a lot of “hard nose” business people, but I have never encountered anyone with less integrity or general business professionalism. She and her associate Heather Faudel were both ruthless and rude about it. I was shocked at how I was treated. Roxanne knew she had the upper hand by attempting to change her terms at the last minute, then failing to cater my event, or return payment. Complaints have been filed, and a lawsuit is pending. I got stiffed. Buyer beware!

  • After searching high & low for a catering service that would take on my wedding where we were expecting less than 100 guests, Above and Beyond (Tina & Chase) came to my rescue! We had already planned that we wanted to have finger-type foods that guests could walk around and talk and eat without having a formal meal (formality is not our style). Tina came up with an AMAZING menu – everything on there was something I would typically order at a restaurant. Chase was an AMAZING coordinator – he was understanding that we had no clue what we were doing, but never led on that we were idiots that didn’t do a very good job doing our homework! When the big day came, they showed up & got straight to work & everything just happened (like magic)! I never once thought about or worried about anything going on all night. As an added bonus, they packed up to-go meals for me and my new husband to take with us back to our hotel room to eat before we passed out from the long day. The rest of ... Read more

  • Roxanne and her staff did a great job at our reception. The service was excellent and professional all the way. All our guests highly complimented the food, even the sides got rave reviews! Her staff did an excellent job arranging all the tables according to the layout Roxanne and I had previously discussed. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about how to make best use of the hallway and receiving area near the main reception hall without compromising traffic flow and guest enjoyment. She was flexible and helpful in working around several serious food allergies we had to consider in our menu planning. We served fruit and vegetable trays (you must request the red pepper dip!) with goat cheese and cucumber canapés. Our main course consisted of chicken breasts in a lemon caper sauce and flat iron steak with a whiskey sauce. Fantastic! Even better than they were at the tasting! The sauce on the chicken was perfect, the beef was so moist you would never imagine it had ... Read more

  • Above and Beyond Catering sort of let me down. I did not have an awful experience but there were a couple of things that I was not pleased with and I expected more. First of all, the tasting was AMAZING! So when I had the food at the wedding and some of it was cold or undercooked I was embarrassed. Also, I buffered my final count by about 15 people and I know they build in a buffer too to make sure that there is plenty of food. Because I've been to too many weddings where there isn't enough food and I hate that. So I was surprised again when I found out the next day there was absolutely no food left. I was also told that there would be a to-go plate made for the groom and me since we probably wouldn't get the chance to eat much and we got nothing. And then the straw that broke the camel’s back was the fact that they did NOT cut the groom's cake at all. So I did not get any of my wedding cake (except for little taste when you take a bite in front of everyone) and there was a whole ent... Read more
