We chose River Watch for our rehearsal dinner location because of its proximity to our ceremony/reception site. The catering managers there were very nice and always responsive when I called with a question or needing to update a count.Sent on 07/08/2009
I was a little peeved because our contract stated we would have linens on the table and the same flower centerpieces they use throughout the restaurant and we didn't have either of those things. It really wasn't a huge deal and absolutely no one noticed. I probably wouldn't have even noticed on the day of but the linen and flowers were pointed out to us as a selling point when we were signing the contract.
The service was great and the food was awesome. We got lots of compliments on the location as well as the food. The cheesecake was out of this world. The reason they get an A- was because it was ridiculously hot in the room. We asked several times to have the AC or fans turned on but it just kept getting warmer as the night went on. At one point they opened on of the patio doors which gave a few tables some relief but for the most part we were roasting.
