Do you pay for tasting?

Maybe I'm overreacting but they keep adding on these fees - we signed a contract already and already made a huge deposit but I'm starting to regret choosing this place.
And this site visit alone is costing us almost $2000 including flight...

We are flying blind, as we are not tasting anything before we get to Jamaica. We are just hoping for the best!

But - I left her a message saying I was very upset about it and was told we would be able to choose our tasting menu and that we are not going to pay extra money to taste the food we are going to order for our guests.. I haven't heard back yet, so we'll see

What we did first though is have dinner there on our own dime -- FI, myself and my daughter each ordered something different so we could taste a variety of items. We thought everything was delish, so then we took it a step forward meeting with the restaurant's owner who also doubles up as our wedding coordinator.
We spent plenty of hours talking to her, and when we told her we felt good about having our event catered by them ~ she suggested that the night before we left to go home we have our official "food tasting". She was so kind and really encouraged us to order anything on the menu so we could at get our menu set. There wasn't any limit to what we ordered in appetizers, entrees, sides or desserts. And believe me, we stuffed ourselves. I can't remember what the bill ended up being, I belive somewhere about $150, which is a lot considering most their meals are about $10 to $20. So we left the servers a $40 tip and left happy and stuffed, WITH leftovers
I would definitely see if there's some way around this "tasting fee", it seems so unreasonable considering you're already committed to having your wedding there. Since you're already going to be paying them a significant amount of money, you'd think they could at least give you a free meal...just my $.02
