    Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you! I think it really depends on what you order there... a few in our group ordered the Grilled Seafood and liked it (while some didn't) - it could just be that it's a seafood restaurant and some didn't like seafood though. For me, it was the noodles and sauce that was off - the shrimp was delicous.

      Okay girls. Just found out from the wedding coordinator that our wedding group will be too large for Le Gourmet. From the stuff she sent me last fall, it looks like my choices are Portofino, El Pescador, or the Mediterranean Rest. Is Portofino any good? FI and I hate seafood, so that is out.

        I can't tell you about Portofino... but the Mediterranean was our favorite restaurant! It was verrrrry good and the service was amazing (the service was even better than the gourmets)!

          I love mediterranean food. Want to make sure I can choose from a menu that will suit max number of people. Nice decor and atmosphere there?

            The decor is about as good as any of the other restaurants. (Like the Tequila - where we had our dinner). It's not super fancy, but they dress is up nice for your reception. You may want to bring or buy extras to dress up the tables - we didn't, so the only things we had were the flower centerpiece (used at the ceremony) and then they had our menus printed out, rolled up and tied with a ribbon - very nice especially as I wasn't expecting it. We were happy with it.

            So I assume they would do the same thing at all the restaurants... but you might want to ask.

            You're not going to get a super fancy restaurant if you're not having it at the gourmets but you will get better service for sure. (And I mean that the other restaurants are very nice... just not as fancy as the gourmets).

            If I could do it again - I would definitely pick the Tequila (again) or the Mediterrean.

              I don't want it to be too fancy. We probably won't bring any additional decorations down. Whatever they decorate with will be fine. Just want to make sure that the restaurant is good. Would love to have some sort of Mexican sampler meal since we are having a Mexican wedding. But, I'm not too fussy. Just want to make sure the food is something people will eat.

              So, you enjoyed all the restaurants? Not sure how picky my guests will be about "different" foods or not. My family will be fine (most of them at least) and I think most of FI's family wil be fine. I guess we'll find out!

                Stacy, what time was the sunset in January and what time was your ceremony? Did you find pictures were rushed at all?

                  Carrie - we did really like all the restaurants. For our wedding supper we had the Mexican Platter for Appetizers, the Azteca Soup (which is a very spicy tomato based soup), Stuffed Chicken Breast Medallions and Tres Leche Cake for dessert. I suggest getting something different for your appetizers/soup but sticking with something more traditional for the main course.

                  Jenny - Our ceremony was at 3pm (we had originally planned for 2pm - but changed our minds as that would leave a lot of time in between the cermony and dinner). This was perfect for us as we only had our photographer for 3 hours (she came at 2pm and stayed until 5pm). Supper was at 6:30. It worked out great. I can't remember exactly what time sunset was - but it was still quite light out when we went for supper. But probably not the best or enough light for pictures... but I'm no pro either. Sorry. I do know that while we were waiting for the main course it was already completely dark outside.

                    Great!...that is a HUGE help....they gave us 4pm or 3pm for the ceremony time and I didn't want it to be sunset and have to rush around like a madwoman to get all the photos we want...I think we will have the ceremony at 3 too...that seems like a good time...Your food menu sounds good too!
