While attending a convention in DC, a group of us wanted to eat at a vegetarian restaurant. Our organizer was asked to leave a credit card# when she booked reservations for 14. She told them that since we were traveling from all over the country, 1 or 2 might not show up. She asked if that would be a problem and was told "no." Twelve of us attended and had a delicious meal, but when it came time to pay the bill, we were told that since only 12 had attended, we would each have to pay $30. That was about $80 more than our bill for food and drink! When we asked the waiter why he hadn't told us earlier (we could have ordered more food, if we knew we'd have to pay anyway,) he said it wasn't his responsibility to tell us that. It was on the website, in small print under "about." They did give a gift certificate for the unused amount, but since we were all from out of town, it wasn't very satisfactory. It ruined our whole trip and left a "bad taste" in our mouths about Vegetate. So, if you plan to take a group to Vegetate, make sure they all show up. Better yet, choose another restaurant!
