Zilli's offered a variety of dinner options. They were very accommodating to our guests and had great service. We decided to go with a semi sit-down dinner (salad is served, and the rest is buffet). We offered beef and chicken. We had full bar service. Overall pricing was very reasonable and food tasted good.
On the day of the wedding we were pleased with the most of the food and service provided by Zilli's but we were not at all impressed during the planning process. Zilli's was not willing to work with us on a custom menu even though they boasted their flexibility when we first met with them. They do offer several menu packages for couples to choose from, but if you want to change something in the package the cost suddently skyrockets. In our case, we wanted to eliminate the passed hors duerves to save money. Instead of allowing us to deduct the cost of the appetizers from the total package cost, Zilli's told us we would have to purchase everything else a la carte, which was much more expensive than the original package cost WITH the hors duerves. In addition to that, they raised our prices by 5% a month before the wedding. Additionally, the appetizers were fantastic, but the chicken dinner was very dry. Overall, we felt the price was too high and they were not at all "flexible" like they had promised. Everything worked out okay, but if I had to go back and select a caterer again, I would definitely choose a different vendor.
We had our wedding there [At Coast, on the lake], last year, in June, and even being a "busy wedding month", we had NO problem getting our date booked with them.
They went above and beyond our expectations - suggesting a local dj and an acoustic band to play during cocktail hour. - One less wedding task we had to take on ourselves, and any help planning a wedding is greatly appreciated!!
The presentation of food, not to mention the taste - was amazing - I had so many of my friends/family tell me how much they enjoyed the food. That was really important to me. All in all, ZHG was more than we could ever imagine.
It was high class, hip & couldn't have had a better location [in my opinion, of course!]
The food was really good, but they ran out of pinot noir mid evening and the servers were terrible. People were busing their own tables and going to the bar to get coffee and water.
