Taste of excellence really knows how to make you feel good about planning the catering side of the wedding. They cover every single detail from head to toe. They have made the whole process worry free, and are very prompt on getting back to you with different menus and proposals.

I've been to a lot of weddings, and typically the food is mediocre at best. We got married on a farm where Taste of Excellence is one of the preferred caterers. While TOE had excellent reviews, we were just hoping to have food good enough to avoid having our guests talking after the fact about terrible wedding food. After all, the farm where we got married didn't have an official kitchen and it seemed that it could be difficult to get great food from this. But TOE delivered with chicken marsala and beef tenderloin that was cooked perfectly (seriously, it looked like it came from a fine restaurant) along with all the side dishes, salads, etc. Our guests literally were raving about the food, so we were thrilled to have given our guests such a great meal. In addition to the outstanding food, their customer service leading up to the wedding during the planning process, and then the service the day of the wedding, was second to none. They were so accommodating and flexible, and very focused on giving us what we wanted while making recommendations along the way. I would highly recommend TOE.

A Taste of Excellence was one of 3 preferred caterers that our venue used and we are glad that we picked them. From the initial phone call through the final take down at our reception, we felt extremely lucky to have had them as our caterers. The food was outstanding and the staff was quick and friendly. Marci has been catering weddings for years and knew our venue very well so there were no problems with the set up and serving. The only downside was we only got one plate with dinner and no leftover food to take home. Other than that, I can't speak enough praises of Marci and her staff.

Taste of Excellence catered our wedding at Conrad Botzum Farmstead in Akron and considering it is literally a barn with four walls, I was overwhelmed by the quality of service that was provided to us! The food was fantastic and the servers were always there, making sure everything was going smoothly. Chris was wonderful from start to finish, making sure that everything was just as we wanted! I would definitely recommend Taste of Excellence to anyone looking for a caterer for any occasion!

I planned my wedding 11.5 hours away. Kaitlyn was truly amazing in helping me plan from a far. She would message me back promptly with any questions I had. She met with me whenever I came home and ensure that I was happy with all decisions being made. The food was VERY tasty. Everyone complimented the appetizers and entrees. The day of the event, I felt at ease knowing Taste of Excellence was catering my event. Sue coordinated the day of my event and was fantastic. She asked constantly if I needed anything, if the guests were happy and how I felt.

Great people to work with!

Leading up to our wedding everything was great with A Taste of Excellence. We worked with Kaitlyn who was always very prompt and professional in all communications. On our wedding day Kaitlyn was not able to come, and to this day I’m not really sure who was in charge of the catering staff. The uniformed staff arrived as planned but the truck showed up later than expected which created a rush in getting the reception area put together due to not having the tablecloths.
Our guests thought the Hors D’oeuvres served during the cocktail hour were delicious. However, we had requested (in just about every meeting, it was in red on our contract) that our bar have margarita mix which our guests were told was not available. I had requested this as it is a favorite drink of my aunt who did A LOT of work to help out leading up to and the day of this wedding. Later on in the evening near the end of the reception it was found, but by then it didn’t matter. The buffet opened a bit late and the prime rib was very rare. It was supposed to be served medium rare and be able to be brought up in temperature on request. When I was asking people about the food in the days after the wedding, one of my guests told me that when the individual slicing the prime rib was asked for something more well done he stated that he had asked the cook, but this was all they had. Some guests informed me in the days after the reception that some of the thicker cuts of chicken were still pink in the center. The mashed potato bar was a bit hit though, so there’s that. Our guests indicated that the food that they were able to eat had a good flavor, however much of it was wasted.
There was also a privacy issue in that they left their file which had my address and full credit card information at the venue.
Overall the uniformed staff was very friendly to our guests. A Taste of Excellence did issue us a partial refund based on the outcome of the evening. In my opinion I would not recommend this caterer.
