Why Do Company Christmas Party/Banquet Hall Food Suck So Much?

Why do banquet hall food suck so much? My company rented a banquet hall and paid $75 per plate and the food was like Air Canada food served in airplanes. And to think that a handsome dinner plate at Dennys costs around $23 bucks.

My friends company did their Christmas party at a Mandarin and everybody stuffed themselved with excellent food, now thats a gluttony festival right there. I bet it was cheaper than a banquet hall too since they didnt have to rent a hall.

No more company parties for me, Im skipping it next time.

cus only the italian banquet halls have good food, the others have garbage food. since italians are the ones who invented food and everybody loves italian food, why go to a "canadian" banquet hall? to get ripped off thats why

And the fact that you have to pay $75 is ridiculous, you're a guest not a stranger. I don't invite someone over to my house for diner and give them a bill at the end :lol:

You need to attend Italian parties, best food, best drinks, no money :D

Lol Denny's? I'd take banquet food over that crap any day. Heck, I'd even take airline food over Denny's

because the $75 was not for the food...but rental during a very busy season...wages of staff, utilities, rent, insurance, etc.

food is always the last part that gets cut.

a waiter for every 2 tables isnt cheap...


mandarin gets business almost all day...high turnover...the overhead cost can be spread out more. Wait staff is paid etc for 3 hours of service at a banquet....and your lucky to rent the hall for once a day.

also don't forget, mandarin they dump the foot into the buffet tables and you help yourself, italian banquet halls they bring the plate right to your table, big difference

Banquet hall food is amazing, OP just doesn't have a sophisticated enough palette to appreciate it.

Isnt italian food just pasta and bread? Im not into italian food if I go to a party on an empty stomach, I would have to go to McDonalds afterwards to actually finish getting full.

Food must have been bad if Mandarin and Denny's are the gold standard for OP.

ok if ur stereo type of italian wedding food is just spaghetti and bread u got issues lol or watch too much TV. weddings and banuquet halls serve much better food like gnochi or ravioli, veal parmigiano / chicken parmigiano, some kind of nice steak or beaf, risotto, some kind of chicken thigh or corning hen, if u havent had that then ur at the wrong kinda wedding
