Everyone at the event was complimenting the food. All of the food was out of this world. I heard that steaks were cooked perfectly, melted in people's mouths, etc. I have been in 13 weddings prior to mine and food for a group of 200 is usually just catering food, and our food was restaurant quality made to order. Our food critics of the group had the best compliments too...Thank you for everything in terms of service. Everyone was super pleasant and the guests felt well taken care of."-Lisa Grunklee (Bride)
