Since about 3/4 of our guests were from out of town, my daughter wanted the venue to be something to showcase St. Louis instead of a generic hotel ballroom. The Missouri History Museum uses Butler's Pantry as their exclusive caterer. My daughter, her fiance, my husband and I were wowed at the tasting and excited about serving our guests such fabulous food. I did corporate event planning in various cities across the country and know the difficulties of preparing a large quantity of food and have the hot foods served hot and the cold foods served cold. We had the Contemporary Beef Wellington and the meat was fork tender. Our guests raved it about it throughout the evening! A relative is a professional musician on the East Coast and has had hundreds of meals at weddings, bar mitzvahs and corporate events and he said this was the best food he has ever tasted! Bridget was our banquet manager and she answered every question and honored our multiple requests. The wait staff, bartenders and security guards were friendly and attentive. Some reviews complained that the cost was excessive, but we believe you get what you pay for. Every aspect of a wedding today is expensive, but we felt the dinner was the place to splurge. Every penny we soent was worth it because every guest went home happy and satisfied. Most importantly, my daughter and her new husband had a perfect reception!

Our event was catered by Butler's Pantry at the Missouri History Museum and the staff were great!! Also most importantly the food was delicious!!! The filet was tender enough to cut with a butter knife and many guests commented that it was the best steak they had ever had!

I didn't have a choice in caterer with my venue (Missouri History Museum), and I really have no complaint with the food, linens or setup provided. It was great. My issue is with the on-site contact that I worked with. I know she was new, but she really offered no support when trying to figure out timing, logistics, menu, decor drop-off, vendors, etc. leading up to the day. It looks a long time to get adequate answers to questions, to secure detailed documentation and get a full menu/plan in writing. It was the most frustrating part of the planning process-- by far.

The night of the event, I never saw my contact after cocktail hour. She never came to check in with my parents or me, and since she was new, we were told she would have another catering manager with her to help oversee the event. If that was the case, we never saw her, either. About 1.5 hours before the reception was over, I saw my main contact on her way out the door. She didn't come to check in or say goodbye, I just ran into her in the hallway with her purse and coat.

The result of this was there was no one visible to help fix lighting issues, make sure the buffet was moving adequately, etc. Later on, I was mortified when I discovered groom's family was served dinner last (even though I had told Butler's what table they were seated at, etc., and they knew that the mother of the groom was supposed to be dancing with her son immediately after dinner.) I know it seems like small things, but believe me, you need someone helping you think through those small things that night! Or at least checking to make sure things are running smoothly. I loved my wedding, but the planning and the logistics could have run much more smoothly. Just a fair warning.

Beautiful and delicious food. The process of planning was a little crazy and I felt we kept being charged for things that were ridiculous. Ie: linens even for small little tables. Every time we asked for something it cost a ton extra. But overall the food was delicious and we got compliments all night long! On the night of our wedding I was incredibly impressed with the staff and service. So was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!

I would absolutely recommend Butler's Pantry in the future. The food is top-notch, and Samantha is great to work with. There a few reasons I didn't give them a perfect 5 rating. There is no way to sample the food choices PRIOR to choosing your menu for your event which was a nice service offered by other caterers. Just because you like chicken marsala in general doesn't necessarily mean you'll like it prepared the way Butler's Pantry makes it. It would be great if you could sample a few items that sound delicious, but you aren't quite sure if you'd like them or not. Also, Butler's Pantry doesn't offer a complimentary tasting of the selected foods to receptions that will be buffet service. You only get complimentary brunch for up to 6 people at the PIper Palm House which will allow you to taste the quality of their food in general but not the actual selections. If you want to taste the actual selections, it is $200 I believe!! Yowza. Also, we wanted to have dinner service wine, but were told it was $4 per person for every person over the age of 21 regardless of whether they drink it or not. Also, there would most likely only be one glass of wine provided for that $4 per person. Seemed steep!

I was extremely disappointed in Butler's Pantry. After a relatively pleasant planning process and set up process, their bartenders took it upon themselves to close our bar almost an hour before the reception ended AND our contract stated, without bothering to consult the parents of the bride - who were paying for their services. They refused bar service to the groom - who was sober - and told the groom that the father of the bride told them to cut him off - a huge lie. I will never be able to recommend Butler's Pantry to any of my friends. It was an extremely disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful day.
