    The coordinator was very responsive and experienced. The food was good, the desserts were very pretty, and the staff were very professional and courteous.

The prices listed on the menu are only for the food and don't include service and cooking fees, we had to pay extra for the hourly wage of servers, bartenders, supervisors, cooks, attendants etc. It's quite misleading to not mention this on the menu pricing. We also had to pay extra for tableware rentals and external dessert charge.
