Although the event I am writing about, is not a wedding, it speaks of the professionalism, experience, and absolute ethic this company has. In 2013 I worked at My Father Cigars and the company was celebrating its 10th anniversary. This party was to be held at the company's warehouse, which had no air-conditioning, had a ramp, was big but was simply a warehouse, not a party space. We had about 250 guests, from VIPs, important clients, family, friends, etc and everything needed to be impeccable and exquisite. I emailed, called, and met with a few planners but they didn't really understand the concept, they didn't understand that people needed to be able to smoke cigar (the reason it was being held at the warehouse), and that although we had a healthy budget, we needed someone to help us manage it and put the money where it was best. From the moment Grisel and Pupi walked in, myself and my bosses at the time, knew we had found our match. From the first meeting to every meeting after that, there was full attention to every single detail, with maps to show where everything would be. They listened to everything we needed, wanted, and surpassed all those requests. They piped and draped the place, air conditioned the space, leveled the ramp, and transformed the place to the point that guests who had been there before where asking what part of the building they were in. Their staff, valet, dj, etc were amazing. Their food was delicious, the coffee station was the perfect compliment to the cigars, and the famous palm tree was an absolute hit. Thank you so much to this company, Grisel & Pupi, and their staff for an unforgettable and perfect celebration. I highly recommend them to take care of any of your events!

Grisel is amazing! She is so so helpful. The details of our wedding set it apart from other weddings. Everyone was very impressed by their work. I am getting great feedback from all of our guests. The wedding was perfect and everything was more than what i had imagined.

I love them. They are a company that is great at what they do so much that there marketing is through word of mouth or through an actual event encounter. Pricing is negotiable but you pay for what you get. There food (churrasco and lobster bisque) Delicious!

We used A Matter of Taste for our wedding in Miami recently. I met with Grisel twice, once to discuss options and another time to do a tasting.

A few things worth mentioning are that as the wedding date approached, I emailed twice to confirm payment and to give them our hors d'ouevres selection. I didn't hear back either time but I heard later that their assistant had left so maybe they were backed up on responding to people. Either way, it turned out fine. The other thing is that during the tasting my mother and I expressed that we didn't love one of the original selections, fufu de platano, and would prefer platanitos. (We're Venezuelan, not Cuban). Grisel seemed to think we were nuts at first but later recovered gracefully to say that we could have whatever we wanted. In the end, the platanitos were a total hit. I should also mention that since our head count came under our original projections, they worked with us and provided an extra service that wasn't originally in the contract. They didn't have to do this so we're very grateful.

Overall, the service was great. Their work at the wedding was perfect as far as I could tell. The food was good and the drinks were stiff. Regardless of the two issues mentioned, I would use them again and recommend them to others.

They can provide everything for you in a package, so there's less coordination to worry about. I was very pleased with the look and feel of the decor. However, my family and I did feel that maybe there should have been more food for the money. Overall, I would recommend A Matter of Taste for your wedding or other event, but make sure you are clear about your expectations.
