I would absolutely recommend Brie Cater! We used them for our December wedding at Lowertown Event Center and were thrilled with our experience with them. They were familiar with LEC as they have catered there many times, which was a relief that I didn't have to worry about them familiarizing themselves with the venue. Brian and Christina were so responsive and had wonderful customer service throughout my entire wedding planning process (which was a solid year and a half)! When we had the tasting with Brian, it made us even more excited to work with Brie! The food was delicious and the presentation was absolutely beautiful! I also loved how flexible he was with making changes to the food/presentation to make it coincide with my Winter wedding! The food at the wedding was just as good as in the tasting and all of our guests were raving on how delicious everything was (and how beautiful the plates were). The staff was amazing and so attentive to all my guests! The price worked well with my budget and the value that you get for what you pay is well worth it! Highly, highly recommend! Thanks so much Brie!! :)Sent on 06/15/2018

We are so happy we hired Brie for our wedding - the entire team did such an amazing job! From the tasting to the day of, they had such great attention to detail and it was clear they had a passion for food. All night, our guests kept coming up to us and saying how incredible the food was, and how it was the best wedding food they'd ever eaten. Brie truly left our guests feeling happy and helped make our day absolutely perfect. Highly recommend - great price, excellent food and service!Sent on 10/27/2017

We were SO pleased with Brie Catering. Their food was absolutely phenomenal and from the initial tasting to the wedding night, we could not be happier with the service. They are worth every penny and I would highly recommend them to any couple getting married!Sent on 08/22/2017

Brian and his team were fantastic and the food was DELICIOUS. We have received so many compliments from guests of our 4/15/17 wedding about how good the food was! It's clear the crew from Brie works with integrity and takes pride in their process from prep to final presentation. All of the staff at our wedding were amazing! Everyone was so kind and accommodating. Thank you to all from Brie who helped to make our wedding day amazing!Sent on 05/15/2017

Our daughter Paige was married November 19, 2016 at the Semple Mansion. We were informed by Semple that they had "preferred caterers " we felt that the options given would be appropriate for our price point and guest count. We made tasting appointments at 3 caterers. Brie being the first visit, we met Brian at his Fridley location with the bride/ groom and both parents. He and his staff out did themselves, we were "stuffed" and loved every item served, it was a difficult decision to pick 3 favorites. We talked at length with Brian( who is the most genuine guy around) even told us late night pizza through Pizza Luce was a better value than them making sliders for us. We left knowing we would book with Brie and canceled our others tastings. No need to waste time when we loved everything he had. Fast forward to wedding day...of course the food was great in a small group, but what about 185? Well everyone was amazed by the appetizer selection (crab cakes, potstickers ,Brie encroute) and the dinners we chose. He lightly blackened the salmon per my request, filets on the medium rare side and the chicken wild rice...just perfection. We are continually getting comments about the food at the wedding , wondering who catered and we must have spent a fortune. Brie is extremely reasonable with the highest quality food and service above and beyond..he will go the extra step to make you happy. We are done with weddings but will definitely keep Brian and Brie on the top of our list for any other catered events.Sent on 11/30/2016

BRIE IS THE BEST!!! They recently catered our wedding at the Landmark Center. It was a 300 guest plated. We were very nervous picking out a caterer for this big task at hand. They executed the food and service perfectly and the food was even better at our wedding. We had the Tuxedo Chicken, Baseball Sirloin and the Dijon Crusted Walleye. A big thank you to Brian and his team for making our day a huge success!!Sent on 05/05/2016

BRIE was awesome!!! Our wedding food was cooked to perfection with their staff finishing on-site. The service was very professional and friendly, they looked like they loved their job. Brian is the owner and responsible for sales and he responded immediately up to our wedding day and was there to make sure things went as planned. I would recommend BRIE to any one looking for a great caterer for their wedding!!Sent on 04/26/2016

I don't even know where to start with Brie. They have made the entire catering experience exceptionally easy for me. Their prices are reasonable, and listed directly on their website with their menu. They were extremely responsive in answering all of my questions. The food sounded amazing and we found out, during our complimentary tasting, that it didn't just live up to the yummy descriptions - it far surpassed it. Their professionalism during the tasting was out of this world. We even got to visit with the head chef while we were there - he is very talented yet humble about what he does. He clearly loves his profession and it shows in every detail.Sent on 03/11/2015

We used BRIE to cater our wedding of 140 people and were so happy with the choice we made. Our guests were all very impressed with the food and service. They were so easy to work with and did an amazing job. They took care of everything the day of and made sure that it all went smoothly. I only have good things to say about BRIE and recommend them to anyone.Sent on 08/10/2015

If you have not found your caterer...STOP right here! Look no further. Brie was absolutely outstanding! It is so hard to put into words how incredible it was to work with Brie and have them cater our wedding reception. The food was outstanding. Everything tasted as amazing at our reception at it did at our tasting. I highly recommend the Tuxedo chicken or Filet to anyone! Our guests raved about the food all night long and how great it was. They served full sized portions. The presentation of the meals was impeccable. So gourmet. The staff was so friendly, so helpful, so nice. They were extremely accommodating and did everything they could to make sure we had everything we needed before hand and the day of.They exceeded our expectations in every way. Brie is the best in the business and I would highly recommend them to anyone.Sent on 05/24/2015

We recently used Brie Cater for our wedding at the James J Hill Reference Library and they were phenomenal! Their service was outstanding from the beginning. They gave us a wonderful tasting, were accommodating with our menu, and extremely courteous to us and our guests. Everyone raved about the food and it was much higher quality than some much more expensive vendors we also did tastings with. I would recommend them to anyone!Sent on 11/21/2014

My husband and I live in New York and we were planning a wedding in Minnesota-so the planning process was crazy and we had to coordinate our meetings and appointments when we flew into Minnesota. One weekend my husband and I flew in with his mother and we met with my parents (who live in Minnesota) for two scheduled tastings. I had done a ton of research before making these appointments knowing we had limited time. The first caterer we went to-I literally walked out in tears. The food was cold and did not taste good at all (and I am NOT a picky eater!). Then we walked into Brie for a tasting-and they had us the minute we walked in! The table was set up professionally and the owner was there to great us. Each plate that was brought out was brought out by the chef that explained each item on the plate and not only tasted AMAZING but looked beautiful! Presentation was just as important as taste-even for a tasting! My family and I figured if Brie worked this hard for a tasting, the wedding would be only better! Brie was wonderful during the planning process with my many emails and changing numbers of guests. We ordered WAY more appetizers than we need, simply because we couldn't decide and every guest commented on how amazing the food was. Every bite and every plate was perfection-I did not hear one complaint. Their service was even more amazing-moving around the room and serving my guests. I was concerned I wouldn't get to taste the amazing food at the wedding, but the services made sure my husband and I had a plate full of appetizers and that we got to taste everything. I was so happy with Brie and I would strongly recommend them to anyone planning an event!Sent on 03/21/2015

Planning,details,execution were all done to our satisfaction! My daughter was married in the Dominican and the reception was held at a later date in St.Paul.She wanted a Dominican feel/flavor to the food and Brian delivered! DELICIOUS,AUTHENTIC, foods were enjoyed by all! He even carved a huge fruit boat with the Dominican flag! The guests are still talking about the mouthwatering pulled pork! The servers were very professional and also butler passed yummy appetizers while guests arrived. The tables were set with lovely china and glassware and linens.Everything met my daughter and new husbands expectations! So that made me happy too!Sent on 09/10/2014

We had excellent service, the food was terrific and the presentation was superb. They had the entire place set up and cleared up very quickly and carefully. Everyone commented on the great appetizers and great entrees. Working with their staff was truly a great experience from Brian to Justin to Ray and the entire staff that handled our wedding. They all were very professional always offering to help with things, ask questions and answer the ones we had We could not have asked for anything better because everything was perfect. We would highly recommend them for any event, they are the best. MaggieSent on 10/16/2013

Lettuce Cater catered our wedding on Sept. 7, 2013 at Minnetonka Orchards. We didn't want a formal, plated, sit down dinner, so Brian put together an amazing buffet of heavy appetizers for us. The food was absolutely delicious, and I got nothing but compliments on it all night long. I've continued to hear from people, almost 2 weeks later, who say things like "best food at a wedding, ever!" I think people are generally sick of the typical wedding fare of beef or chicken with some sad little veggies and mashed potatoes on the side. This buffet was spectacular, and had something for everyone! People had their plates piled high - at one point I was worried we would run out of food, but Brian assured me he had brought enough, and I think people definitely got their fill!Sent on 09/24/2013
A couple of guest favorites were the Voodoo Shrimp (curry dusted and wrapped in bacon - my friends and coworkers will not stop talking about them!), and the beef tenderloin skewers with mushrooms and gorgonzola sauce.
It was a really hot day out at the orchard and Brian and his staff did everything they could to make our guests feel comfortable and enjoy themselves.
In addition, my sister is a pastry chef and made six (!) cakes for the reception. Brian graciously offered to store and transport the cakes for us at no extra charge. This was huge because my sister was also my only bridesmaid, and had a lot of other stuff going on that day. I have no idea how we would have gotten the cakes out there if he hadn't been wiling to do this. His staff was amazing at cutting all 6 cakes quickly and efficiently, even as the vultures were diving in to try all 6 flavors!
I'm an event planner for my job, so I know how important it is to have food your guests will love, as well as impeccable service. Lettuce Cater provided both of these things well above and beyond what I expected. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable for us and our guests!

I cannot say enough positive things about Lettuce Cater, right from the start they were fantastic. They were the only caterer that offered a tasting at the first meeting with them, and Brian talked directly with us to make sure we received everything we wanted. They were above and beyond any other company we talked to, including items for no extra cost (plates, silverware, coffee and water tables, cake cutting) and most other companies charge you extra for those. The food options are incredibly broad so we had a lot to choose from. They were the only caterer to actually respect and stay within our budget we set. From the beginning Lettuce Cater made the planning a positive and fun experience rather than a stressful one.Sent on 03/08/2013
We chose a buffet style dinner, and it was gorgeous. The salad was out on a huge wooden block like a cutting board, it looked so elegant and new. I received many comments that night on how delicious the food was and heard later we had one guest go up 4 times for more :). We had the chicken wrapped wild rice and roasted vegetables, bread, a spinach strawberry salad, lettuce wraps passed during cocktail hour, a water station, coffee, and they cut and put out our cake for us as well. We had 5 staff there (for 100 people) who were fantastic, they bussed all the tables and refilled everything but did so silently so we hardly noticed them moving around.
Lettuce arrived 3 hrs before the wedding to set up; they set the tables and folded all the napkins for us with the linens we provided. Lettuce Cater did better than I could have even imagined and from the start we knew exactly what the plan was. It was everything a bride could want - they took control and said here's what we'll do for you, didn't need any direction from me, which left me open to have fun and relax. If I could I would rate their value higher than 5 because they gave us more than anyone else could have AND stayed within our budget. Thank you so much Lettuce Cater!

I can't say enough good things about Lettuce Cater! By far the best wedding food I have ever had and they were an absolute joy to work with! It is very obvious the owner, Brian and his staff love what they do and will work with you to create a menu that is perfect for your event! Brian and his team worked with my fiance and I during a very difficult time in our lives. We were originially scheduled to get married in September of 2013 but our wedding got drastically pushed up to Feb. 2013 after my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Brian and his team worked with our limited budget and created a menu that was amazing! To this day I still get guests that comment on how fantastic the food was on our wedding day! They went above and beyond to make our wedding meal special and we will forever be grateful to them! Brian and his team are by far the best in the business! I will refer Lettuce Cater to anyone and everyone!Sent on 08/23/2013

We are The Wedding Guys - Matthew Trettel and Bruce Vassar! We had the distinct honor of working with Lettuce Cater in creating a wedding dinner for "Foodies"! Do you know how hard it is to create a menu for a bride who works with one of America's Top Chef on The Food Network? Well Brian and the staff at Lettuce Cater amazed everyone. The taste was out of this world and the stylish ways in which it was all displayed was masterful! Our first time we worked with Brian he did an 8 course dinner with wine pairings for each course for 150 people including 3,000 pieces of china, crystal and flatware! Bring your creative ideas to Brian and his staff at Lettuce Cater and watch them come to life! Your taste buds will do a Happy Dance!Sent on 11/27/2012

We met Jules as our tasting, and things went so smoothly and so delicious. She worked with us within our budget because it was just as important to her as it was to us to be working together.
It was really important to my husband that guests enjoyed EVERYTHING about our wedding. Not "oh it was beautiful but the food was cold" - we wanted to hear no "buts"!
Our venue was at The Great Hall so we had 6 different places to choose from, and we did our share of tastings. Lettuce exceeded all expectations. From walking in to the door at our tasting - it was lovely! And they gave us PLENTY of food to taste. They didnt skimp on anything, we had two bags of things to take home!
As the wedding got closer, it was great to work with Kris. Her emails were precise and quick, she was always there to get a hold of for any questions and help. Thats important!
The chicken wild rice and pork pancetta still have us talking. Husband and i even joke about going back for a tasting just as a date so we can eat their food again!!!

First off...YUM!!!!!! The food was delicious! I was looking around our reception at the end of dinner and lets just say, most of our guests were members of the "clean plate club!"Sent on 11/12/2011
Our guests raved. It tastes and looks like restaurant quality food. You would never know that the Lettuce Cater staff was preparing a meal for 250 people simultaneously. The food speaks for itself and all the ingredients were fresh and delicious.
Jules made the whole planning process seamless. Even our tasting was beautiful! She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our choices. She even let us take a little "doggy bag" home to my dad who was unable to make the tasting with us. He really appreciated tasting the food and like my husband and I, had a very hard time narrowing down our choices!
They were even accommodating to a few of our guest with special dietary needs. They were able to make meals gluten free with no problem or hesitation.
The wait staff was also wonderful. At the beginning of the night, the lead server personally came over and introduced herself. We had a plated dinner and it went seamlessly. They even plated and put out our late night snack. We ordered gourmet pizzas--not from lettuce, simply because of our venue limitations--but they still served it with a smile and made sure everyone was taken care of!
I don't know how, but I will find a way to work with Lettuce again, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect caterer. Because Lettuce is it!
