I just had food tasting session for my wedding at The Fullerton Hotel, Straits Room.
My food tasting session was at "Jade restaurant" with normal restaurant table setting. It is not even in the function room only our family.
To my knowledge, food tasting session not simply free meal. It is also to evaluate and feel the actual day environment including full table setup and tasting of food.
Based on weddingtweet.com post, "Your hotel wedding coordinator or banquet manager will usually be present to discuss the dishes with you"
My Coordinator was Ms. Wendy Lim and she didn't even show up on the day. She just simply instructed us to go to Jade restaurant and have dinner there which I think is ridiculous. Fullerton is 6 stars hotel and the service they have given to us was shocking to us.
I have been to food tasting session at Fullerton Hotel last time for my friend's wedding and my company event, it was in the seperate function room and served by banquet staffs and attended by Banquet Captain. The coordinator leaded us to the room and presented at the end of the tasting session.
Was any one of your food tasting at Jade Restaurant? In the Jade restaurant without proper table setting as actual day?
I have requested to change my coordinator and now it's Ms.Violette. However, she needs to try hard to build up my trust for Fulleton Hotel's standard of service.
I hope my actual day in January wouldn't go wrong.
I emailed Fullerton on some enquries and tried to arrange meetups with the coordinator (wendy). Find that she's very slow in her responses, the last email we have sent was more than a week ago and we have not heard from her since.
