At the Lantana, exceptional service has always been a family affair. Our founders, Maurice and Joan Hart, opened a small catering business out of their Roslindale home in 1956. From those humble beginnings, the Harts learned to shape their services to meet the needs of their clients, and area residents began to learn about the Harts.
After many successful parties and perfected recipes, the Harts moved their budding business to a larger facility in Dorchester, MA, in 1960, to accommodate the higher demand. A decade later, they saw a golden opportunity to combine their entertainment value and fine culinary prowess to bring a new vision of grand venue space to a yet-untapped area: Massachusetts’ South Shore.
The move south was the family’s windfall, and as the facility grew larger so did their reputation for extraordinary service. They had reached the pinnacle of their craft, establishing The Lantana brand as the region’s premiere full-service event venue. The luxurious dream of The Lantana was now a reality.
Today, Maurice and Joan have long since retired. However, the family tradition for stellar service and unforgettable events still continues with Paul Hart, their son. Under his leadership, The Lantana continues to grow, thrive, and achieve new heights of success in Randolph, on the South Shore, and beyond.
We know our guests and understand their unique needs. From our decades of experience, we’ve learned that every event is different. That is why we focus on flexibility and design freedom to help achieve perfection.
Over the years, we have added over 40,000 sq. ft. of function space, unique packages to fit every budget, and invested more than $2 million into renovations, staff training, and elegant décor. We make it our mission to separate ourselves from our competition by perfectly planning every event – from Bat Mitzvah to board meeting – down to the smallest detail, finest accent, and freshest dish.
We invite you to let us make your family a part of ours and invite you to experience the dynamic difference The Lantana can create for you.
