Grand Street is the absolute best! My husband and I had our wedding reception there this past weekend, and it was breath taking. Exceptional service, and genuinely caring staff. Logan was our event coordinator, and I seriously cannot say enough about how thankful we are for her! […] If you are looking for a wedding reception or event location, do not think twice about Grand Street it is the best and completely worth it! Thank you Logan and all the staff at Grand Street for making our wedding reception absolutely perfect and magical!


I was so impressed with (the team) and your event management skills. I didn’t have a worry at all! You really made it super easy for me. I was especially impressed that you took the time to work with our DJ beforehand to get everything organized.


My husband and I visited more than 10 venues in the Kansas City area. This is a total hidden gem. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is incredibly professional. Logan, the coordinator put my mind at ease throughout the whole process. The guests raved about the delicious food. It was the absolute perfect venue for our best day ever!


After visiting several other venues, we knew the second we walked in that Grand Street was going to be our venue! The space is in a great location on the Plaza and the room was the perfect size for our 200 guests! […] As if the space itself isn’t awesome enough, the food is seriously AMAZING. There was not one thing during our tasting that was not delicious, which made it hard to narrow down our menu! We definitely recommend using Grand Street Cafe as a reception venue! You won’t find another space in the area as elegant and fun as Grand Street!


From our servers/bartenders to the appetizers, I could not be happier with our choice to go with Grand Street Café for our party. Thank you for all of your help with our table settings and thanks to Sarah for providing her computer! […] It’s nice to be able to relax and enjoy the party, knowing full well that it was in great hands. We look forward to having another party at Grand Street!


I had my wedding reception at Grand Street, and it was AMAZING! The staff was incredibly helpful and great to work with through the entire process. The day of coordinators (Elliot and Logan) helped me through the entire process of decor design, food choices, and day of planning. All I had to do was drop off any additional decorations the week of, and they did EVERYTHING for me. They day went smooth, and my family and I did not have to worry about a thing the day of. They were amazing and made our event stress free. The entire staff the night of was attentive and professional, and the food is delicious. Best wedding food you could have. I highly recommend having your event at Grand Street. I was so impressed with how easy they made my day. Oh, they also have SO many decorations you can use at no cost, such as table numbers, different options of candle center pieces, cake trays, etc. It helped lower my cost quite a bit as well. I hope the staff at Grand Street does see this, as they deserve so much credit for making my day perfect! Elliot was our day of coordinator, and was on top of everything the entire time.

We recently had a party for 50 people and worked with Elliot from GCS to make all the food and beverage arrangements. We couldn’t have been happier with the results. Everything turned out better than expected and cost exactly what we had agreed to. There were no hidden add-on costs. The bar tenders and servers were friendly and did a great job. The potato crusted crab cakes were an especially big hit!

Elliott and Grand Street staff… I can’t thank you enough for your role in making my daughter’s wedding reception such a wonderful celebration for our family… every detail was taken care of so beautifully, allowing us to enjoy every moment without having to worry about a single thing!!! Throughout the entire night, you and your staff handled every detail from the room arrangement, delicious food, efficient bar, responsive and pleasant staff and servers… all led by you!! All of our guests had a fabulous time, in part thanks to your very hard work!! I had received so many emails and texts complimenting Grand Street and our great venue choice!!! You made us look so good!!! Thank you so much!!

We recently had a wedding reception for 250+ people at the Plaza location. Elliot and Logan were definitely the “A” team. The entire wedding/reception was flawless. Many of our guests used the phrase “EPIC” to describe it! The food was incredible, and the entire Grand Street staff was exceptional. I would love to do it all again! I wish there were 10 stars I could give them. Great job, Elliot and Logan! I cannot thank you enough.

We had a group of 75 friends who enjoyed the Grand Street ballroom dining room. Elliot Taylor was our primary contact person. She was a tremendous communicator. Her replies were prompt, accurate, and kind. The whole team of servers (headed by Sean & Bree(, were outstanding. Their hospitality, their presentations, their on-the-spot requires; amazing! I appreciated the entire team! Amidst the numerous communications (esp. with Elliott), I was impressed with her 3 C’s: Communication, Care and Commitment to satisfy. We will use the Grand Street folks again!
Thank you!

Our rehearsal dinner was delightful! Your attention to detail was much appreciated! We’ll be back to Grand Street again!


It literally was the best experience I’ve ever had at a venue. Working with you since January to plan this event was the most calm, peaceful and enjoyable time I’ve ever had. I feel beyond blessed to have Logan as the support/ coordinator. Lastly the ladies (at the event) were AMAZING. Bri and Carly went above and beyond from the moment we arrived until the last person left.


It was such a fantastic time! Many thanks to you and the staff for making it such a special night. I have gotten so many comments that this was the “Party of the Year!” I heard nothing but positive comments on the food and my photographer told me yesterday that Grand Street is her new obsession, so you have a fan in her!


Grand Street was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. The space was amazing and so beautiful. […] So many of our guests said it was the best food they have ever had at the wedding, and there are no hidden surprises or costs. I wish I could relive the reception all over again because it was so incredible.


Thank you (and your Staff) for providing our Company Christmas Dinner again this year – December 1st and helping to make it a very nice and enjoyable evening for our employees. All in attendance have commented on the really good food (buffet selections) as well as the desserts being out-of-this world delicious! We do very much appreciate you and your Staff on a job well done!


We were SO PLEASED with our luncheon at Grand Street which you arranged for us on September 3rd. All of our guests were impressed with the lovely room, the wonderful food and especially the fantastic service. […] I wouldn’t hesitate to have our functions there again and have already highly recommended this to others. Excellent experience, beginning with the reservation process all the way through.


We had our wedding reception for 200 guests in the Event Space in June 2017, and we were so happy with how the night turned out! Planning with Elliot was so easy – she was easy to reach at all times and extremely attentive. We did not have to worry at all on the day of the wedding because we knew the space would look exactly as planned! The wait staff was very professional, and we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered that the plated meal was similar in price to the buffet (depending on entree choices). The food was delicious, and it was very convenient to have two full bars for guests. We went with the premium beverage package because we were not impressed by the “house: selections, but this is our only complaint. A definite highlight was the private room for the bridal party. Immediately upon getting off the bus, appetizers and water were waiting, and the staff began taking drink orders. Everyone appreciated a moment of down time to sit and cool off on a hot day, as well as a sate place to store any bags/personal belongings. Additionally, we loved that we did not need to bring in any rentals because the space simply spoke for itself. Linens and votives were provided, and the rest of the room was easily decorated with flowers! Something that we didn’t necessarily think to consider when looking for a reception space was how to set-up the dance floor made the experience enjoyable for all of our guests. Since it is set up to the side of the room, guests who did not want to dance could sit on the opposite end of the space and be abled to converse without yelling over the music. (And dancing guests appreciated not being a spectacle in the center of the space). We were very impressed by the surround sound audio, as all of our guests were able to hear the toasts without straining. Another major plus was the underground parking available for all of our guests ( included in the room rental costs). It gave us peace of mind to know that our guests were taken care of and didn’t have to drive around searching for an open spot (especially those from out of town). The garage was even more appreciated when it poured rain during the reception, and Grand Street even offered that guests could eeturn the next day to pick up their cars if they needed to Uber/carpool home. We could recommend Grand Street to any other couples looking for a reception space in KC!

This is a hidden gem of wedding venues in Kansas City! I feel extremely lucky we happened to find and look at Grand Street Cafe for our wedding reception on August 27th. Grand Street Cafe is usually thought of as a )delicious) restaurant across from the plaza, but what many people don’t know is that there is a whole separate wing just for wedding receptions/rehearsal dinners/etc. They have beautiful dark wood floors, white walls and black leather chairs (way nicer than your average venue chairs.) Also, guests get to park in a private gated parking garage and take elevators directly up into the venue. Additionally, since this a full service restaurant, the food and drink are so easy and delicious! You obviously don’t have to deal with third party food and drink vendors, and they are AWESOME menu-option wise and staff/server wise. (Note: their chorizo flatbread appetizer and pretzels were huge hits! Also, I was obsessed with the salmon entree.) Last and MOST importantly, their wedding coordinator Elliot is the biggest asset of Grand Street Cafe as a venue. When you sign a contract with Grand Street, included you get the day-of services of a wedding coordinator. She also helps you leading up to the day with tastings, room layout, etc. Elliot made our experience seamless, easy and enjoyable. She is always accessible, organized, dependable, and is SO great at knowing the in’s and out’s of planning a perfect day. She had great advice for seating charts, layouts, menu, flow of the night, etc. And literally ALL we had to do to get the room set up on our big day is drop off all decorations, table runners, cake toppers, framed seating charts, etc. with instructions and she setup the entire room perfectly. What an amazing and convenient service included with Grand Street Cafe — at so many venues, a friend or family member is stuck having to go decorate the whole room the morning of a wedding! Overall, I can’t say enough wonderful things about Elliot and Grand Street Cafe! This is a beautiful venue, right by the plaza, with many more perks and nicer amenities than your ‘average’ venue. I could recommend Grand Street Cafe as a reception venue to any future bride. THANK YOU!
