    They truly go above and beyond!

    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 make sure we felt completely carefree about how it was all going to happen. Additionally, Above and Beyond cut our cake and kept up with serving it to our guests when there was a huge demand.
    Most importantly, Kayla and the Above and Beyond staff paid close attention to the details for our table setting. They made our multiple dinner rentals look wonderful! Overall, Kayla and the Above and Beyond team were truly amazing throughout the entire wedding planning process. Please don't hesitate to book them for your next event!

    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.
