Do you find Winterlicious a rip-off?? Or is it just me.

Have gone to 6 restaurants over the last 2 years during Winterlicious and have been decidedly underwhelmed on all occasions. Went to Tutti Matti last year - all 4 of us had terrible food - fish was overcooked, pasta & soup were both tasteless and the cake was as dry as the desert & inedible - topped off by indifferent service. Had eaten at Tutti Matti on 5 other times and enjoyed it.
Ate at Mildred's Temple - food was fine but the portions were miniscule to say the least. I believe we paid more for the Winterlicious menu than I would have from their regular menu.

It seems that the Winterlicious participants find ways to charge their usual prices and in some cases, more than their menu prices by offering small portions or assembly-line food. Some also have the audacity to tack on their gratuity charge. I am not in the habit of giving a tip when the service is poor.
Anybody else's experiences??
