Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you today. Congratulations first off to your daughter on her wedding.As your question, it depends on what was contracted for and what guarantees they made you. For example, if you under the contract were guaranteed the use of a wedding coordinator for 8 hours, and they showed up late and you only had their services for 5 (regardless of how good or not good they were during that time) that would be considered a breach. Similarly, if the contract called the filet to be served to only be "Grade A" USDA prime beef and it was a lower quality, that is a breach.You may also have an argument to sue on the grounds of misrepresentation and detrimental reliance. Misrepresentation is a false statement of fact made by one party to another, which induces them into entering into an agreement. Similarly, detrimental reliance is a promise made that induces a party to enter into an agreement. "Our filet is top quality USDA prime" might induce you to pay extra for that, to detrimentally rely on their assurances --only to find out it wasn't true.Did you need clarification or additional information about my answer?

One other thing that I should mention is that they told me that because my meal was inedible they would box up 3 or 4 meals that I could take with me but they never did and they told certain guests the same thing yet never provided them with replacements.
In terms of legal issues such as breach of contract, misrepresentation or detrimental reliance, that's not really an issue you'd raise -you didn't rely on their promise that you could take your food to go when you signed the agreement. It's certainly something that you'd want to raise with your other complaints to the facility itself, but not really something you'd include in a lawsuit.
Was there something else that I could help you with in respect to this question? Was there something I could clarify for you?
