I cannot say enough good things about Californos. We used them for our ceremony venue, reception venue, caterer, cake maker, and they provided sound equipment. The event space itself is beautiful with exposed brick and beautiful beams in the ceilings. We had about 125 guests and it was the perfect size since we could all fit in the big ballroom. Anymore than that and they would have split our guests among the other rooms. We had the 10 piece heavy Hors d'oeuvre and heard rave reviews from our guests about the food. We had gotten to try about 12 items at our tasting and loved everything. We also had our cake catered from Californos. We had initially decided this for a convenience but after trying other cakes theirs really stood out.

Our only complaints was the heat of the ballroom once the dancing started. The staff made it seem like it wasn't any easy fix to cool down the room when it was 50 degrees out that evening. A simple opening of the window would have helped. But it did eventually cool off. Secondly, they kept coming up to me and my husband to ask us questions throughout the night. Even if we were speaking to guests. We were pretty low maintenance so asking us if we should eat then or in 10 minutes didn't matter to us and only annoyed us. That is just one example of the many questions that was asked that night.

Aside from that, we truly loved our experience with Californos and our wedding was pretty perfect. We would definitely recommend this venue for someone looking for a beautiful event space!

Californos was the perfect fit for our Saturday wedding of 170 people. First of all, the food is AMAZING! There is a large menu of items to choose from so you can make it fit your tastes. It has such a unique feel and our guests enjoyed having 2 bars, the main party room, and a quieter room for those who wanted to catch up. We really appreciated having the venue, food, and bar all bundled together because it was so much easier than booking a separate vendor for each. Aaron and Mig were great to work with and obviously have a lot of experience working with brides and grooms. Our guests enjoyed being able to go out and enjoy the Westport nightlife after our event ended!

Holy AMAZING! This place does it all and makes the whole wedding planning process so easy. They do the food, drinks, tables, chairs, linens, cake and anything you could almost imagine. We loved our experience working with them. The venue is so unique with the high ceiling beams and brick walls. We loved it and cannot wait to spend our anniversaries eating dinner there! Book them :)

Californos was wonderful to work with! The food was delicious, service excellent, and the venue is beautiful! Californos made the prep work easy and the evening ran smoothly. It's so nice to have the venue, caterer, bar, and servers all rolled in to one for a clear price that doesn't involve hidden "extras."

My husband and I gathered information on options and pricing from caterers all over the KC metro area before meeting with Aaron from Californos.

From the start, Aaron was accommodating and friendly — we never felt pressured for their business. He was open to all of our questions and concerns (and had experience and knowledge to reassure us). Californos offers an incredible heavy hors d’oeuvres menu – you get to choose 10 items from this list, with the Mixed Grill being your main entrée. The mixed grill was a big hit with our guests— it is a combination of beef, chicken & shrimp with vegetables over rice. We had quite a few vegetarians at our wedding which complicated the food planning initially, however the selections that Californos offered made the choice so easy!

Not only is the food amazing, but Californos has perfected the art of beautifully displaying food! Our appetizers were just as decorative as the pictures on our event space walls! The endless compliments we received about the food on the night of our wedding was just what we needed to confirm that yes, indeed, Californos is the best!

Contact Aaron Barksdale-Burns, the VP of Sales and Marketing at Californos, right away. Californos is a well-known and loved caterer in the KC area!
