We recently were there for a wedding and although the wedding was beautiful the appetizers and meal were NOT good. Yes I know it is wedding food, but if you are paying $175 a plate you expect it to be edible. The appetizers were okay at best. The brie filo pockets were okay but everything else tasted like frozen boxed appetizers. One waiter came around with what he said were jalapeno popper balls and I went to put one in my mouth and my brother screams "it's a crab cake" don't eat it! I am VERY allergic to crab and thankfully he had eaten one first because I would of ended up in the ER. His response was, "oh is it?"
They brought out the salads in at the dinner and we proceeded to start eating them when my family member next to me realized at the bottom of the plate was pecans which he is allergic too. The waitress never asked anyone at our table if they had any allergies or told us that the salads contained nuts. Thankfully he did not accidentally eat one and he is not as allergic as some people to nuts.
So after all this I was banking on the filet mignon dinner being good since they had upgraded the beef dinner... I was wrong. It was not filet mignon no matter what they say. It literally tasted like beef pot roast with a weird red wine. It was incredibly dry and had the consistency of pot roast. The few small carrots and patty pan squash it came with were raw and hard. They wouldn't even be considered al dente steamed, they were raw.
Another person at my table got the chicken it was pink inside from being undercooked. Another family member next to me who was a vegetarian (the same person that is allergic to nuts) asked what he would be served and they said it would be a vegetable ravioli. She later came out and apologized saying that it was a grilled portobello mushroom. It was a barely cooked portobello mushroom with the raw vegetables.
Bad food and the servers really should be aware of allergies. Ok granted maybe we should of asked about the nuts but I asked what was being served and they said Jalapeno Popper and it was a crab cake!!! BEWARE
