Russo's catered my daughters wedding at The City Museum. They were absolutely wonderful. The food was so delicious. Many of our guests said it was the best food they'd ever eaten at a wedding reception. The service was excellent. Everyone was extremely friendly and professional. They set out all of the decorations we had provided and even repacked the mason jars we used for drinks. Kathy was so helpful and made everything easy for us. Their prices are very reasonable and I would use them again for a special event. I highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or any other special occasion. You will not be disappointed.

We booked Russo's a few months before our wedding when our original caterer closed. They were very helpful in working with us both on our budget, and being flexible with their packages to get exactly what we wanted. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food, especially the mashed potato bar. Toni and Mark were both great to work with when picking out our menu, and were really helpful figuring out what we wanted and how to set it up. Overall, we loved Russo's!

We worked with Emily and she is just amazing! She met every single of my requests that I asked for. I can't imagine dealing with 25 other brides and being that involved and professional as she was with me. My reception venue was out of this world, husband and I were both blown away when we walked in because they set it up so beautifully! Your cake comes with package...what?! Yep that's right! There is so many more things I just can't name them all. Last but not least was the Food...god that food was phenomenal! My guests are still talking about how awesome the food was! Thank you Emily and Russo's, I will recommend you all the time!

We had our reception at the Anheuser Busch Conference Center at the Soccer Park in Fenton. We were not given a choice of Caterers and were told we had to use Russo's. Although we heard great things, we attended a general tasting at Spazzios, which was a buffet. We requested a private tasting as we were having a sit down dinner and wanted to try our top two choices. They were most accommodating, and it was very easy to make our final selections. The food was served hot and plated beautifully. I would recommend Russo's to anyone, whether you have a choice or not.

Russo's did a wonderful job with my specialty cake. I had a brownie wedding cake with a lace design on it, and they executed it perfectly! Kathy was particularly accomodating and they even put the cake right on the cake stand I purchased. It tasted delicious, and looked even better. I will definitely recommend everyone to them!

Russo's was great from beginning to end. We worked with Liz Costello and she was always responsive and very helpful with any questions we had. We had SO many people come up to us at the reception telling us how wonderful the food was and that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. And the cake also got rave reviews, it was moist and had a great flavor...the design of it was exactly what I wanted as well. I would highly recommend them for their professionalism, and most importantly, GREAT food! You will not be disappointed!

Russo's was great to work with. They were very flexible and willing to meet with us on our schedule, including Saturday afternoons. They made everything very easy, laid out our options clearly, and provided suggestions. The staff was wonderful at reception and made everything run incredibly smoothly. I brought them a picture of a cake design, and it turned out so beautifully...and it tasted great! I heard so many of my guests comment on how good the food was, and I agree!

Russo's did a FANTASTIC job with my wedding of about 250 people. I held my reception at the Graphic Arts Communication center, and it was the perfect size. Liz, my wedding coordinator for Russo's worked with me to design every detail from the linens, candles, and centerpieces. We planned a lot of it through email, since I don't live in the St. Louis area, so it was nice that Liz was usually pretty quick to respond. The food was excellent, and all of my guests enjoyed the passed hors d'oeuvres prior to the wedding party arriving. Also, we were given a champagne toast to the head table. My cake was also provided through Russo's, and I loved it - the best I've ever had at a wedding! Russo's also provides invitations, but since my sister is a graphic designer and was making mine, they gave us a discount. Overall, I think Russo's is THE BEST RECEPTION SITE FOR YOUR MONEY!!! Working with Russo's was GREAT!

They have one price for everything; hors 'd ourves, salad, entree, sides, cake, bar, service! AMAZING! Read less

Other than the fact that the person we worked with during our planning wasn't there the night of the event, we were incredibly pleased with Russo's. It was a great value, delicious food, delicious cake and delicious coffee! The dinner options were fresh and perfect for a hot August day (compared to some of the heavy options other caterers offered). We also used the centerpieces Russo's offered and the room looked great.

Russo's did a great job with the food for my wedding. Everyone kept saying how great the food was and how delicious my cake was. I worked with Kathy and she is really nice. She answered questions that I had and also accommodated me on certain issues that I had. The staff was professional and everything looked great and tasted great.

I was very impressed with the staff on the night of our event. They were very professional and made sure everything was taken care of. We received so many compliments on the food and cake. I would definitely recommend attending one of the tasting events in order to narrow down your choices because everything is delicious! Katie, the coordinator we worked with, was difficult to get ahold of during the planning process and I found myself having to follow up multiple emails with a phone call in order to receive a response to my questions.

Russo's food selections are amazing! We were able to go to a tasting before picking our caterer and Russo's knocked it out of the park! We couldn't decide on just two main dishes. Everything was delicious. They were completely set up 2 hours before the event. They staff was friendly and tentative. (I was escorted back to my seat while a staff member carried my plate).

Everyone at the wedding stated it was the best wedding food they have ever had! They are a little on the pricey side, but the cake was included as well. I didn't want to search for a cake, glad I didn't and it was delicious as well. They had our top tier all wrapped and packaged to go into the freezer by the end of the night.

We LOVED the food Russo's catered for our wedding. They were also very informative and flexible with menu options and decor.

Additionally, their staff was INCREDIBLY helpful the day of, and helped immensely with the decorations and setup.

Our particular account rep was not terribly responsive to emails, but I had better service from other members of their staff while we were deciding on our final venue.

The coordinator I was working with was very flexible. She was willing to work with all of our requests. The only problem I had was at the actual reception, we requested black square plates to match our decor and we were given white styrofoam instead!!! It was totally tacky and made our whole reception look cheap!

Having an event at Fenton soccer park, the prices were $10 more per person for no specified reason. Russo's only offers tastings twice a year so unless you can make these tasting you have no clue what you are getting for food or cake.

Working with Russo's the night of my wedding was absolutely great! The staff was incredibly nice and very attentive to my husband and I as well as our guests. What I did not enjoy was working with Katie, their wedding coordinator. She isn't the friendliest person and I often felt like they were trying to nickel and dime us for every single thing. Not very accommodating whatsoever, as any little change you make seems to be a problem and results in an additional cost. Also, be leery of bringing in your own linens, as they will refuse to take them down at the end of the night but they will set them up (doesn't make much sense to me). So I had to pay a fee for my linen rental company to come and tear down at the end of the night. Don't be fooled by the "cake is included" aspect either, as they didn't have the design I wanted, a damask print, so I was told I had to order the stencils myself and provide them to Russo's. The stencils also meant that they had to use a different kind of icing, which also resulted in an additional cost. Overall, I highly enjoyed working with Russo's the night of my wedding but did not enjoy working with them on the logistics throughout the planning process.

The food from Russo's was amazing! They also did our wedding cake that was beautiful and delicious. They did special meals to accommodate all of my guests with allergies or special needs. They also helped me set up my centerpieces and name cards the day of. My main problems with Russo's were getting them to respond to me. I sent several emails and would wait a week or two with no response. My husband or I would then have to call and ask for them to call us. The response was always, oh our email was down or our computers were having issues, etc. Please. I had to be the one on top of everything, I was never contacted about what information was still needed, when to sit down and do a tasting, etc. Then after not being contacted after reaching out to them, I was given short deadlines for information they needed. Great Food, not the best Service.

I normally would not a review but I have had 2 horrible experiences with their catering in the last year. One was my wedding, I realized they had been damaged in the hail storm in April 2012 but their lack of communication about the repairs, what was happening and overall responsiveness was horrible. We found out the day before our wedding that our wedding reception was going be actually going to be at Spazio's. The kitchen wasn't finished. They were putting in carpet squares as my guest were arriving. The ran out of appetizers during our cocktail hour. They broke my cake topper. We ordered another cake for someones birthday through them and they "forgot it" and got the entire timeline for the wedding wrong. They almost served champagne to minors but we stopped them in time. The bathrooms where not complete and divider screens fell as guest were using facilities. it was not a good experience. to make up for this we had a certificate for catering for a dinner party and alerted them of a sever allergy to strawberries. It was written on my invoice in 4 places with bold print. But when we unpacked our trays of food. There was strawberries all over the trays. We called Russos and the response was nonchalant that we can just remove them and it will be fine. After 3 phone calls, we finally got a response that there was nothing that can be done. So we called again, and we are then told someone was coming to our address to drop off a replacement for one of the trays. They did not call us to let us know this. Our event was at another address than our invoice and we just happened to stop by and let out our dog. So if we had not stopped by what would they have done. It was one of the owners and when asked how this can happen he said "people" no sorry, no we will be more careful just people happen. It is that attention to detail that worries me and is not acceptable. Food allergies aren't a small detail and anyone in the food industry should realize this.
