My very darling sister is planning her wedding reception (!) and has narrowed down her choices enough that the deciding factor is now food. Unfortunately, there seems to be little on the net or Chowhound about these Los Angeles/Orange County/Riverside venues.
Have any 'hounds been to or held wedding receptions at the following lately, and have good things to say about the food? They are flexible about food style, but would very upset if they ended up with country club rubber chicken.
-Padua Hills, Laguna Hills
-Mission Inn Hotel and Resort Spa
-Cal State Long Beach Earl Burns Miller Japanese Tea Garden
-Summit House, Fullerton
She is also open to suggestions for venues that will comfortably seat 150 guests and are of the price range of the above venues. Thank you! You are helping a young bride avoid many hours of despair.
