We weren’t either! And when I mentioned it to the venue, they said that I could come in on a night they were open (It’s at an inn and they have a restaurant there) and test some of their food… and by “test”, they meant “purchase”. We did end up tasting the chicken, but we haven’t been there to taste the beef option. I guess we will have to wait and find out!!

I’m actually not sure if my venue offers a tasting!  I’m not really concerned about it because it’s a restaurant I’ve eaten at several times and their food is yummy!

Our venue doesn’t offer one, but I’ve read on some of their reviews that they DO host a New Years Eve party every year that we can attend if we choose to be able to taste the food, so we know what all of our choices will taste like. We’re on a pretty tight budget, so it was more important to get a great all inclusive price than a gourmet, 5 star, 10 course meal.

Our reception didn’t but our rehearsal dinner place did.  I have eated before at our reception venue and the food in the main diner was good so I figured the other must be too.

You still have time to ask for a tasting if it is something you think is important to you.

I wasn’t all that concerned about a tasting.  The owner said we could try the chicken and fish, but not the filet… a lot of places don’t offer a tasting for the beef so that didn’t surprise us.  We didn’t end up doing a tasting though, we just never got around to it.  But we went to a brunch there once and the food was good so we’re putting our trust into the owners hands.  If the food is gross hopefully that won’t be all the guests remember about the wedding haha.

We weren’t offered a tasting, but we were able to pay for one.  I personally would never serve food to a whole group of people without tasting it.

We didn’t do a tasting, but our venue is a restaurant where we have eaten several times and we love their food.  We could have done a tasting if we requested, and had to pay for it, but I’m confident enough in their food.

I’m getting married in VT and tastings are unheard of….anyway I thought I had arranged a tasting with our caterer last weekend and I drove out there- we didn’t taste anything :/ We ended up just finalizing the menu and off I went. I’ll just have to rely on the great reviews and people that have eaten their before…we’ll see.

personally, i wouldn’t trust a venue that won’t allow you a tasting…if you don’t know what it tastes like, it could be horrible and you’re guests would have to suffer!
