    Catering at Leopolds

    Everyone has had the classic wedding dish, and most have forgotten about it after but Mintahoe will make sure that your wedding isn't like the rest. We had Mintahoe at Leopold's Mississippi Garden and Erin and her team crushed it. Erin was incredible, she worked tirelessly to make sure everything was perfect. She went beyond just handling the food and we really couldn't have asked for a better partner to coordinate with. Mintahoe is a large caterer but when talking to Erin she make it personal and even worked on getting us a small cake for us to cut. I would recommend Mintahoe to any couple but it is a must if you were to get to work with Erin Hedges and her team at Leopolds Mississippi Gardens.

    Gabriella was awesome at NIP

    I had the opportunity of coordinating a client's wedding at the Nicollet Island Pavillion and I must confess that I worked with the best site coordinator. GABRIELLA PANEBIANCO was amazing to work with. She went over and beyond to make the event a success. The food was delicious and the ambience was great. I would definitely recommend Mintahoe to my clients especially NIP and Gabriella. Thanks for an awesome time.

    Great staff, great venue

    Nicollet Island Pavilion was an incredible venue and if we had to do it over we would get married there again in a heartbeat. We looked at ~20 venues around the city and couldn’t find anything that could compare in terms of size, city view, on the water, etc…The price was competitive with all other similar sized downtown venues.

    Gabriella Panebianco took over as the main point of contact for us a few months from our wedding. She quickly brought herself up to speed and was incredibly professional and patient throughout the process. We had several last minute changes/questions the week of the wedding and she was completely accessible and handled all inquiries promptly.
    We did not hire a day of coordinator, nor did we need to. Gabriella was present on wedding day through dinner and provided a calming presence and made sure everything flowed correctly.
    The entire staff on site was incredibly kind to us and our guests. In particular, Steve the bartender went out of his way to take care of both of our parents all night.

    Bottom line, awesome place to get married and awesome people to work with.

    Extraordinary Experience

    Where do I begin?!?! Working with the team at Mintahoe was a dream. My husband and I live out of state (he is from the Twin Cities area) and I had no idea how to begin our wedding planning. Upon my initial consultation, Tracy and her team made me feel at ease. I loved how everything was on-site at the Nicollet Island Pavilion. I knew the venue was gorgeous, but seeing it in person was everything I could hope for. Gabriella joined my planning team two months before our wedding and we were in constant contact the entire time (again, we were out of state!). Even with a minor last minute hiccup (on my part), Gabriella was there to support me and find a solution. I cannot overstate how integral she was to ensure everything ran smoothly. Our wedding was magical, the food was phenomenal, and our guests continue to rave about it today! Thank you, Gabriella, Emily, Tracy, and Mintahoe for providing us and our guests an extraordinary evening!

    Great communication and easy to work with

    Tracy McCarthy was so good to work with! Communication was excellent. All items that needed discussion, clarification, or changes were done with ease. Tracy provided all wedding organizing we needed during the event. The event staff were warm and welcoming to all or guest, including treating the children like little adults. They were thrilled.

    So many food and drink compliments!

    I will say, I was a little bit nervous when it was announced that the cater we had booked "Envision" had merged with Mintahoe. However, our coordinator Courtney made sure everything transferred seamlessly and the food was just as delicious as during the tasting event. We went with a chef carving station and received so many compliments on how delicious the food was. Coincidentally, we had already booked Mintahoe for our libations before the merge so we were able to merge both services. The drink selection and package options were honestly the best value we could find. The two of us are very much craft beer drinkers, and we felt we provided the best options without breaking the bank.

    We are incredibly happy with Mintahoe! First, Mary Jo was phenomenal! So helpful throughout our experience and was even there herself the night of. You absolutely have to get the beef tenderloin! It was ridiculously good. Honestly everything was delicious which can be really difficult to do when you are cooking for 180 people! The staff was great too!

    Not enough words to describe how amazing Erin (Leopold's Mississippi Garden's) was to us! The food was spectacular, the manager in charge our the catering event (I forgot his name) was so helpful and sweet. We are so thrilled to have experienced Mintahoe's first class service and look forward to working with them again in the near future.

    Best day ever!

    Minntahoe was fantastic throughout our entire planning period and the day of our wedding. We got married at Mississippi Gardens and they made the entire day absolutely fantastic! Erin, Raul, and the whole staff were there to make sure everything went off without a hitch. The food was wonderful and the service was even better. Thank you to the entire Minntahoe staff!

    We planned a celebration of life at the Inwood Oaks location - we did it on short notice and with a tight budget and it couldn't have turned out more meaningful. The staff was amazing, the food was delicious, and they were very accommodating to all of our needs. They understood that due to our circumstances we didn't have a lot of time and needed answers quickly and not everything would be planned out perfectly and we would need to finalize some things on the fly. The entire family is very grateful for their support and ensuring the celebration of life turned out beautiful and a meaningful time for all.

    Mintahoe Catering & Denise were wonderful to work with from day one all the way through to the wedding! The planning staff was always quick to respond and happy to accommodate all our requests. Denise was excellent in walking us through all the planning steps and giving us great options and advice for making the day and timeline smooth and effective. The staff during the day gave THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! Throughout the day, they were able to respond to each request quickly and with a smile. They were in contact with us and always checked in to make sure all our needs were met - seriously, the best customer service I've ever experienced. And finally, and most importantly, the food was truly delicious! Our guests are still talking about the wonderful service and the yummy food. Mintahoe Catering is worth every penny! They will make your day very special and will go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful day!

    Mintahoe was the caterer for our wedding at Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens. Erin was our main point of contact and she did an outstanding job! She was always on top of planning, from food to day of timelines. Whenever we had random questions she was always available and quick to respond back. The day of, Erin did a great job coordinating the day and kept everything working in a timely manner. The food was exactly what we had asked for and tasted wonderful! Our favorite was the Butternut Squash Ravioli! In addition, the “Captain”, Raul, was incredible to work with! He had a smile on all day and had a demeanor to him that kept us calm and assured that he has everything under control. The bartenders, Stacy and Steve, were also wonderful! They always made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hand and were very personable! Overall, Mintahoe did an outstanding job and all of the staff were friendly and happy to be apart of our day! I would highly recommend using Mintahoe for your wedding!

    The staff is a well oiled machine. Mary Jo makes it so easy to organize everything ahead of time so that when you wake up on your wedding day, all you have to do is show up. They take care of everything as promised and it is worth the cost. Our day was perfect, and of course the food is delicious.

    Nothing but 5 stars for Mary Jo and the service at the Van Dusen Mansion! It was all perfection, and Mary Jo's service right from the start of our wedding planning could not have been better!

    Mary Jo was one of my favorite people to work with during the entire wedding planning process because she responded to emails promptly, was really patient in answering my questions, and really helped us figure out what our wedding day would look like. I appreciated her consistency throughout the entire process - it was nice seeing a familiar face and she helped our vision truly come to life. On the day of the wedding, everything turned out better than we had imagined it - from the cake presentation to cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres to dinner, it was all great! Seeing Mary Jo's familiar face was helpful on the day of, and Tyler (event captain) was AMAZING! Super friendly and helpful all night long. They truly helped make this the best night of our lives.

    We had our wedding at A'bulae in September and received so many compliments on the food and service (still to this day). I had read some reviews complaining on the price, but you get what you pay for. They had so many options for food choices, and the tasting was a great way to help narrow it down.Appetizers were great, and the staff even put some at the head table since we didn't get the chance to have any during social hour due to pictures. Extremely impressed with how fast the food comes out for all, and that people aren't sitting without food while others are done. Very professional and friendly staff. Denise was quick to respond to all emails and happy to help whenever needed. Highly recommend using this company for any catering needs!

    We held our wedding at the Garden Room of Eden Prairie on 8-19-17, and Mintahoe was in charge of the event and catering. Heather was wonderful with coordinating the whole day and making our requests happen! She was a great source, and even though I didn't have a wedding planner, Heather made me feel as if I had one! Tyler was in charge of the food and venue on the wedding day. He and his staff were so helpful and friendly! The whole event was so enjoyable and stress free. The food was amazing! We had so many compliments and comments about it being the best food had at a wedding!

    We absolutely LOVED the entire Mintahoe Catering & Events Staff for our wedding this past Friday, July 21, 2017. The food and service the staff provided made our day stress free and created a pleasant experience for us and our guests. After our wedding ended, everyone was talking about how great the food was and how incredibly welcoming and nice the staff was to them. It definitely made me and my husband (still getting used to calling him that!) so happy to hear that everyone had a great time thanks to the hard workers of Mintahoe! Thank you all so much for creating an unforgettable experience for us!
