It was OK. It was very crowded and the food lines were really long. Not enough tables to sit down.

Over all this was a very nice event. The food was decent but not great. The desserts were by far the best part. The music was nice and really added to the atmosphere. The biggest issue was the number of people there. There was WAY more people than...continued

The event was not as elegant as I had hoped. There were long lines all evening for food and beverage; so long that we in fact did not ever get to the main dinner buffet. We made do with appetizers and dessert. Standing in line is not elegant!
