Too crowded, trash everywhere, disorganized, with long, long, long lines. Did I say long lines? We felt like we were at Disneyland but without the anticipation of a fun ride at the end. Waited over 20 minutes for a lousy meatball on a toothpick!...continued

It was very crowded & hard to get food & drink. Very long lines. I also called the venue because we had one person in a wheelchair. It wasn't very wheelchair friendly & super crowded. Also, it wasn't explained when we arrived, that we needed...continued

Will not attend again. Parking was a bit hard to find and the event was over booked. The venue was nice but not for ideal for a food event. A lot of the girls there were dressed up had issues walking on cobblestone and rubble.

The facilities are amazing. The event was a bit oversold. Check-in was chaos. Parking was bad. The food was ok, but the lines were long. Not sure I would go again.

I picked this event because of the location. I had never been to Rancho Las Lomas and it is not generally open to the public. It's a beautiful location but was not a great match for the event. The terrain is not flat and it was hard to navigate...continued

We actually did not attend, arrived at 6:30. No parking in immediate area drove several miles to huge church parking lot. It was "packed" with long, long lines waiting for shuttles. The wait was quite a time. We finally just left. Wish more...continued

The location was beautiful. Everything else about the event was horrible. We got there at 7pm, when the event started but apparently you should've been there much earlier.
*Their parking lot was being used by the vendor so the public were directed...continued

Most of the food was good and the location was really nice, BUT, it was WAY WAY TOO CROWDED. Standing in incredibly long lines to get a small bite got old quick.

PARKING: We were told to park at saddleback church and there would be a shuttle to take us to the event. Well the trouble is Saddleback church is the size of a junior college campus...any it took 30+ minutes to locate the shuttle stop. We even...continued

We decided to take the shuttle from Saddleback church; however, there are many separate parking lots at Saddleback. We went to the wrong one and waited with others for the shuttle that never came. You woudl think their would be signs or a person...continued

I never even made it to the event! When I reached the venue, there was no parking. A policeman was halting traffic for everyone to turn around and go back several miles to park at the Saddleback Church. Signs should have been posted prior to...continued

Poor parking, took 45 minutes to get into the event, long lines at the food booths, disorganized and chaotic. Looked like Disneyland on a Saturday in summer. After 90 minutes we had 2 meatballs, 2 pastries, sample of ice cream, and half a cupcake....continued

This event was amazing! The venue was beautiful and everyone was dressed up. There were so many food and alcohol vendors. It was so much better than expected. I will go again! Totally worth it.

I imagine Rancho Las Lomas is a beautiful venue, but it was way too poorly lit to see it. There must have been a power problem, because the vendors said they were unable to cook food as they had no electricity. My friend I was with uses a cane,...continued

It could have been great but it was way to crowded. You could not get to all the station and enjoy the food. The venue is beautiful but you could not move around and enjoy it.

It was great at first, because we arrive early, but my friends who got there after 7 had problems. It also got extremely crowded, and didn't seem like the lines were organized. it has been much better in the past.
