The Restaurant Store- Review (comparable to Webstaurant)

My caterer doesn't supply the nicer disposable plates for our buffet dinner, so I was on the hunt for good deals! I ordered our gold cutlery from Amazon, the brand is WDF and I ordered our gold rimmed plastic wine glasses for the bar on Amazon as well but when it came to plates, etc. I needed something a little better in price compared to other online retailers. I was pretty set on using Webstaurant since I had read so many reviews and I already knew what I needed, so once my budget allowed I went to place the order. Low and behold the website was down for the day. While I was waiting for it to come back up I started looking around more and found The Restaurant Store. Comparable prices (if not the same prices) as Webstaurant, the same inventory, and the same website layout. I decided to give them a try as I've heard of them before as well. I posted a photo of what I ordered and the prices below. I ordered two cases of the 10" plates, 3 cases of 6" plates, bags for our cookie table and cocktail napkins for the bar, apps table, and cookie/cake table. Everything equaled $177 and shipping was another $16 on top of that. When I placed my order there was no estimated shipping time or anything on the email or the confirmation page. Out of curiosity I live-chatted someone from the company to ask about standard shipping times. She told me it would go out within the week because some warehouses were affected by the hurricane.

I ordered my items Friday morning, they shipped Friday afternoon and arrived to my front door via FEDEX yesterday afternoon. Everything was also packaged really well so it wouldn't get damaged. I am soooo glad I went with this company, that's one more thing checked off the list!

    That's great! The shipping with Webstaurant is ridiculous. I'm glad you found a better alternative. Thanks for sharing.

    I know this is a super old post, but I was searching the forums for reviews on The Webstaurant Store and stumbled upon it. I'm checking out The Restaurant Store and was wondering if you were happy with the quality of these plates? We definitely want something that will hold up and the price is significantly better than the other options we were looking at.
