I thought the pickled veggies and salad were good and I loved the dessert. I also enjoyed the beer pairings with everything. Our entres arrived later than everyone else’s. I think they had a problem with the vegetarian count or something like that. A psuedostromboli was not what I was hoping for, but I thought it was pretty good…but maybe because it didn’t sit...or I was really hungry...or I'm not a foodie. I appreciated the thought that was put into the meal by trying to tie into the local area. I also don’t think the Marriot did the meal justice either, but the hotel itself was not very impressive either. It might have been too much for them to prepare that many meals.
As far as the cost, I didn’t think it was bad. I’ve certainly paid more for a lot worse. The day before, I went to El Vez and payed about $40 for some good guac, a subpar entre, and a few beers. I would take the banquet dinner and much more Rogue beer over what I had there. I also had a great time at the dinner, which made it worth it.
