  • Montperi Catering at the Brazilian Room Berkeley

    We starting planning our wedding in summer 2022 after getting engaged and after one venue fell through we did not set a date until May 2024. However, we were already in touch with and began getting quotes from Montperi in fall of 2022. They were great at communicating back and forth for the long planning process and we’re so grateful we chose this catering company. We sampled some delicious items at the Brazilian room open houses which is the venue we ultimately booked. We did a tasting with a couple of friends and fell in love with the miso salmon. Montperi catering worked with us to include a special welcome drink after our ceremony. We also hire someone from their team for our day of coordination. We appreciated that after our ceremony some wine, champagne, and snacks from the mezze platters were set up in our getting ready room so we could enjoy a quiet special moment alone after getting married! The set up, buffet flow, and clean up seemed seamless and the food was incredible. We heard from so many guests that they loved both the salmon and chicken mains as well as the seasonal veggie central sides. It was the perfect California cuisine. Thanks Montperi!

    I cannot recommend Montperi Catering enough; they did an absolutely phenomenal job for my wedding this past May. My prior venue had closed (without bothering to tell me), and with less than two months before the big day, I was scrambling to figure out how to plan a backyard wedding during COVID. I had no idea where to start, but then my friend recommended Montperi, assuring me that Chef Lamont's cooking was fantastic. I reached out that day, and was able to connect with Amanda. Amanda was wonderful to work with. She was able to accommodate our work schedules to do a preliminary phone call, and she immediately made us feel so comfortable about working with Montperi to plan a safe wedding. During our socially-distanced walkthrough, she came up with creative solutions for organizing the wedding, figuring out where to place tables, how to staff the event, and how many rentals we would need. Between the walkthrough and the wedding day, she was super communicative, getting back to us quickly whenever we had questions or changes that needed to be made. A few days before the wedding, we had another telephone call to go over the day-of timeline, and she was able to offer a lot of advice and information about how things would go. She would ask us what we planned and immediately offered to help with those things, taking a huge burden off our shoulders. On the day of, everything went perfectly. Amanda and the rest of the Montperi team kept things flowing so smoothly that I honestly felt like I was neglecting them because I didn't have to tell them anything. I was able to spend all of my time talking to family and friends, and never had to worry about timing or making sure things happened as needed because Montperi took care of everything. Everything was set up on schedule, the backyard was flipped from being a ceremony space to a dining space, and my friend was absolutely right - the food was delicious. We didn't do a tasting, so my first taste of the food was of the honey miso glazed salmon. I actually prefer raw salmon to cooked salmon because cooked salmon always felt dry to me. But as soon as I took my first bite of this salmon, I just stared at my husband and went "wow" at how tasty and tender it was. I also stole some tri tip from my sister, and it was so perfectly spiced and cooked. I often hear about people not remembering or being able to enjoy their wedding, but that was never a risk for me. Montperi took care of so much that day, all the way to cleaning up and moving the rentals out of the way. Everything that needed to be done got done without me needing to check on things (and that is hard for me because I can be a compulsive control freak), and I really was just able to enjoy myself. At this point, I am honestly glad that my prior venue shut down because this wedding was everything we could have wanted; we were so happy throughout. I cannot think of any way it could have been better, and it would not have happened without Montperi. My only regret was that I didn't take the time to try all of the appetizers; now I have to listen to my family and friends tell me how delicious they were, without knowing for myself! Needless to say, if I ever have to plan another big event, I know exactly who I will be contacting first.
