Very mixed feelings with Grapes of Wrath...poor upper management, GREAT middle management and wait staff: prior to our wedding, I had a hard time getting anything from them...both by email and phone. Once they made an appointment with me and cancelled the night before at 9pm. They claim to accommodate any budget, but it was still $25/head for chicken...plus linens, $10/head for plates and glasses...all together it was about $70/person with no bells and whistles. It is nice that they let you BYOB with no corkage fee. So aside from the $$$$, the day of was AMAZING. They arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule, accommodated my whims, and worked, quickly, efficiently, politely...you almost didn’t notice them working their magic! If you have to work with them (GOW is mandatory at many Monterey locations) make sure you communicate with one person consistently...most of my problems came from X not telling Y what we had talked about...I learned email replies are a total crap-shoot...one email address but 3 people write from it and no one on their ends keeps dialog continuity...very aggravating...but day-of service knocked my socks off!!

This should be a 4.5 out of 5 overall, but the system will not let me give 5 stars.

Grapes of Wrath was outstanding! The food was amazing! So many of my guests raved about the food. Grapes of Wrath did a sit-down served dinner for my wedding reception of 90 people and each plate was hot when served and no table had to wait for a long time to be served. The transition between courses was seamless. They provided 3 dinner options: Beef, Fish, and Vegan. I loved having a vegan option (it is what I chose and it was delicious!). Grapes of Wrath also prepared and served appetizers and bar-tended. There were no problems and everything flowed so well.

I felt that Grapes of Wrath was very fair with all of the costs for the rentals and catering. They allowed us to provide our own alcohol which we really appreciated, but they served it which was nice. They also worked with me to meet our budget. It took a few revisions of the original quote to finalize everything, but each time Grapes of Wrath was quick to respond and professional. They would explain to me why things costed what they did and give me alternative options.

It was easy to tell that Grapes of Wrath is experienced in doing weddings. They had great ideas that they shared with me, but ultimately left the decisions up to us. They were more than a caterer. And I feel that the overall experience of having Grapes of Wrath cater our wedding is definitely worth the cost!

The costs of this venue included a guard and the grounds for 8 hours. It was beautiful! The lights created a magical ambiance and the decor was dreamy. The location was exactly what I wanted, which closely resembled the Secret Garden. Everyone is still raving about it!

Catered my wedding in Memory Garden in Sept. 2009. Did a fantastic job organizing and the food was sooooooooooo good! All the ingredients and dishes were so good, not just typical steak/chicken/fish wedding food. I got tons of compliments on the food from my guests, and they sent my family home with the leftovers which were gobbled up immediately on a beautiful "Grapes of Wrath" platter that my husband and I still use today.
