For the past several years we have gotten the DDP and liked the idea of knowing our meals were paid for up front. But last year we just felt it was too much food for us to consume in a day and that we weren't really eating what we wanted to. We love appetizers and since they aren't included in the DDP we ended up either paying OOP or skipping them. So this year we decided to skip the DDP. We were very happy ordering a few appetizers and splitting a meal and skipping dessert at the restaurant and getting something later in another place (Ghiardelli's, Dole Whip, Kringla Bakery). We ate plenty of food, had some nice wine and sangria and when we figured it all out we saved $271.00. For us, the flexibility of ordering what we wanted and not worrying about what was included in the plan just made dining more enjoyable.
Everyone has to do what's best for them and we think paying OOP makes more sense for us!
