Booked a Wedding at Monteverde... What was I thinking??

ShksprKate | Nov 4, 2008 06:04 PM

So I've booked my wedding at Monteverde for the spring of 09, based on a site visit, a very tasty dinner, and a review from Adam Platt. Here I am thinking I have it all in the bag... but then I have the brilliant idea to take my soon-to-be Mother-in-Law and Fiancee up for Brunch on Sunday.... and it was an unmitigated disaster. Like a perfect storm of blarg-brunch-food, inattention to detail, and bizarre/inept service (our busboy sounded like a radio announcer circa 1975 and I felt like telling the main server yes- they are called spoons, you are supposed to put them on the table when serving things with liquid, like soups, or coffees, or whatnot. Evidentally there was some sort of shortage?).

So of course, I log into chow and there is some good, and some bad posts. While I have time to perhaps wiggle out of this contract- Maybe I am rushing to judement based on brunch, which perhaps isn't thier forte? They can pull this off, yes? Has anyone been to a wedding there in the tent- how did they do?
