Island View Dining
We had our reception here because they do not have a food/beverage minimum. The coordinator is very bossy and too high strung, they say one thing one day and then the complete opposite the next time you talk to them. The coordinator is not a good listener and it never feels like she is listening to what your wants are.
We had many problems getting ahold of the coordinator - called and left 9 messages over two weeks before I got her to call me back (and this was three weeks before the wedding)! We also had been stood up twice with her for face to face meetings - she should have reimbursed us for the gas cost of driving out there and back for no reason. The first time I got a phone call and apology the next day, but the second time we got stood up no phone call and not even an apology! The food was good except we asked for garlic mashed potatoes and they tasted like you were eating a garlic clove. We were over charged for the food by 15 plates also. Would not recommend unless you want someone else to run your entire reception and not get back to you unless you harass them...
I loved the looked of the reception. They really know how to decorate it the way you want. However, information would change regarding what they would do and how things would be done. One visit they would say that they could do something (like serve the head table and parents table), the next time it would be "no we don't do that." (In the end, we got the head table to be served, but not the parents tables.) The food was GREAT!! The coordinater was very pushy and bossy. Everything was very rigid and rushed. We had a lot of complaints that guests felt like they were at a military wedding. I understand that there has to be someone in charge, making sure things are getting done, but this was overboard. Overall, I don't know that I would recommend them. If someone was interested in them, I would say Get Everything in writing!!! No matter how small a detail it might seem.
