They have 5 preferred caterers and after contacting them all not even one has given a thoughtful quote that even comes close to what we want (a month and a half later). In fact, most, just ignored us completely. Daniel et Daniel and I talked to each other on the phone and they promised to send me something in a week. After 2 weeks of waiting I had to contact them and they said they would send a sample menu and quote the next day...I never heard back from them. 10tation did not listen to what we wanted at all. In fact, their menu offered on chicken leg for the main and no other protein yet the menu cost over $80 a person (the menu resembled something from the 1990's)!!! We did meet with Urban fare and they seemed nice enough but I have to admit the samples they gave us were not very good and it is 3 weeks later and I still don't have a menu or quote.
The whole process is crap! All we want is a nice, local meal where we do not feel ripped off. We are in the process of contacting Gilead Cafe and seeing if they can host us.
Does anyone else have suggestions? Food quality is most important. We are not having a traditional wedding with all the bells and whistles (no wedding party, no photographers, no limos). We are in our early 40's and just want this process to be simple. This wedding industry is really shady and one big rip off after another.
