What a douche!  I hope you find another place (that is even better) so that you can tell him where to shove that banquet menu.  Good Luck!

I am such a dumbass, I missed the part about how you actually went into the restaurant and met with the guy.  And that he TOLD you to e-mail him!  Screw that place…it’s his loss.

@lezlers: What I do is that I usually talk to them over the phone THEN send an email regurgitating everything that was sent. However, since you are waiting on a special menu, it is kind of different. I wish you all kinds of luck on that. I remember when I was looking at venues. Oh God, there was this one venue I absolutely adored but they were so GOD AWFUL at responding to any inquiries. I had to wash my hands off of them. I don’t expect you to email me within the hour or day but you know, sometime during the work week would be nice. I don’t blame you. Stuff like this makes me want to pull my nappy hair out!

@lezlers:Everyone is not good at email. If it’s a great location and good food I would call him to set appointments to follow up in person. There are situations when people need to be managed. Manage him, control the situation. Its worth the effort to get what you want.

Run away!!!

I’m dealing with my vendor after the fact for bad food and bad service.

The warning signs were all there, bad communication, bad paperwork, and unorganized.  The reason I dealt with it is because the food was going to be spectacular, NOT THE CASE.

Sometimes the hopes and dreams aren’t worth it if you have to deal with a bad vendor!

Have you checked your spam folder in your email box?

Just an idea…

Sorry, it sucks when you think you have found just the right place and it falls through.  Still very disappointing.  On the good side, you found out before fact and you will not have any flakiness the day you needed the service.

I agree with NYE Gal.  It sucks that it’s so perfect and you’re dealing with this guy’s crap-ola. 

We had some issues with a particular vendor, and while everything came together in the end, there was A LOT of stress (including day of) and issues at the end of the night.  I chose to disregard my feelings about being ignored because I liked the person (in person she was great), but email and responsive time SUCKED and there was a distinct lack of communication and things got lost in translation. 

At this point, I would send an email that says “As we have not heard from you, we have decided to go with another location”.  He has not earned your business and can you imagine what he’ll be like once he has your deposit?  Undecided

Run, don’t walk.

How annoying!  I find that I’m much happier with vendors with quality=8 and professionalism=10 than with quality=10 and professionalism<10.

As much as it sucks I’d run far away from him and his restaurant as fast as I could because it doesn’t sound like the headaches are going to stop.
