We had Tapas style food for our reception at Stan Hywet. The food was AMAZING! All of our guests have been raving about it! Marci was great to work with and all of the staff was very attentive throughout the entire night.

At first I did not think I would like this caterer, but I ended up loving them on the wedding night. I thought they were a little expensive and did not allow much wiggle room. The food we taste-tested was not the food we ended up choosing. Luckily the food we had for the wedding was AMAZING. They took care of everything so that we could enjoy our night. Everything was perfect during the wedding. I'd say they were worth the money in the end!

I loved A Taste of Excellence. They made the whole day run smoothly. The entire staff jumped right in whenever something needed to be done, no matter what that happened to be. They were very pleasant and considerate to all those involved. It was fantastic working with Chris. He is extremely knowledgeable, and had several very helpful suggestions. He always responded with in one business day to all emails, most of the time it was sooner. The food was good, and the prices were extremely fair and upfront. I have already had a few friends in attendance ask for their contact info. Truly a wonderful experience!

I cannot recommend A Taste of Excellence highly enough, as they did an absolutely outstanding job with the set up and catering of my wedding reception. I worked almost exclusively with Taylor, who was truly wonderful. Of all the vendors that I used to create my wedding day "team", Taylor was easily my favorite. She was super organized, friendly, helpful, and to say she was accommodating would be an understatement. She also was albe to recall, from memory, minor details about my wedding that we had discussed only briefly in months past. In short, she was truly amazing and my husband and I feel incredibly blessed to have worked with someone who made us feel so at ease with the millions of details we needed to tend to for our wedding.

Both Taylor and the rest of the staff at A Taste of Excellence went way above and beyond their slated role as caterer and did most of the set up for my reception (at no extra cost, I might add) and said "yes" to just about everything I asked of them. Our venue looked amazing and they got all of the details right! The service was quick and efficient, and perhaps most importantly, the food was outstanding!! They were extremely accommodating of many of our guests' food allergies and special requests, and people RAVED about the food! Many of our guests even told us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.

In a nutshell: A Taste of Excellence is clearly a cut above the rest. Their staff is extremely professional and efficient and their food was better than I've had in many high-end restaurants. I would give them 10 stars if I could. I highly, highly recommend this business.

Taste of excellence was the ideal caterer to work with. Kaitlyn was our go to person and she was responsive and helpful through every step of the process. She listened to our needs and went out of her way to ensure everything went smoothly. They know what they are doing and they make sure to go out of their way to be flexible in almost anything you need. The good was excellent and we received rave reviews from even the toughest foodies in attendance. I could not be more happy with the way everything turned out. I would definitely recommend Taste to anyone looking for a caterer.

In the beginning we were given great confidence that they were going to be exceptional and said they would handle everything. It was the biggest mistake of the wedding. I will simply state the facts.

1. The tasting was amazing. At the reception the quality was greatly diminished. It didn't look at all like the food at the tasting. They didn't serve the appetizer soups that they were supposed to serve. The salad was 1/2 the size it should have been. When we said something about it, their response was, "oh, no one really eats the food". Stunned.

2. When we arrived at the cocktail hour the dinner tables were not set. The tablecloths were the wrong size. The entire bottom of the tables legs were showing.

3. They broke the champagne toasting glasses that we bought..... before the toast.

4. The bartenders did not know how to make the martini bar drinks......that Taste of Excellence recommend we have.

5. They told my family member that they were out of water at the bar and served them water out of the ice bucket. I believe this is a health code violation.

6. Dinner was 1 1/2 hours late. And they told people they were out of meat. They did not make as much as they said they would.

I have no words. The presentation was sloppy.

A Taste of Excellence was very accomodating and easy to work with. We asked for someappetizers that weren't on the menu, and they kindly made them for us. Stephanie met with us several times leading up to our wedding day to go over details. We did two tastings and the food was always fabulous. The only disappointment was that the food served on our wedding day did not taste as fresh or good as when we did our tastings. The fish and chicken were a little dry and the rissoto didn't even resemble what we had at our tastings. My husband reminded me I should not expect that same quality when cooked in bulk using portable ovens. I just wish it tasted the same because that is what I was looking forward to. The serving staff and catering manager were fabulous and I believe went beyond expectations to make our day go smoothly. The tent sides were open when it started to rain and the venue coordinator was nowhere to be found. The serving staff tried their best to close the sides before our guests got wet. We really appreciate the Tast of Excellence staff stepping up even though this wasn't their job. Also, cake was served to our guests at their tables, but our table had to be moved to open the dance floor. I guess I should have specified that myself and the groom would have liked the cake served to us whether we were seated or not. We weren't served any cake, but luckily my wedding coordinator thought to put a piece in our suite that we got at the end of the night.

What can I say about A Taste of Excellence.. They were AMAZING! The food was fantastic, and Marci was great to work with. She was very responsive and would normally get back with me rather quickly. We had our ceremony and reception at the Old Cleveland Courthouse, and A Taste of Excellence provided everything, from the tables and chairs to the linens and tableware. They set everything up and made it look gorgeous, and then tore it all down and rearranged it for the reception in a matter of minutes! Marci was there overseeing everything and made sure it all ran smoothly. Because of them, I was completely stress free on my wedding day. They are the best catering company in town. If you're getting married, call them today!

We have mixed feelings about our caterer. The food was great, and so was the service the day of the wedding. The bar tenders and servers were excellent! However, our expectations were not met in the pre-planning phase. We had a hard time getting in touch with our planner, she was very slow answering emails, if she answered at all, and she didn't do any coordinating with our other vendors. One of the reasons we chose Taste of excellence is we thought they would do some of the coordinating, so we factored that into their more expensive cost, but that was not the case, I coordinated everything myself. One great thing was they did set up for us a day in advance, I rented tables and chairs through them and they didn't charge extra for having them there the extra time. They also were pretty flexible with the menu, allowing me to have vegetarian entrees for certain people even though it was family style. they also chilled our home-made beer for us and served it in nice glassware at a separate beer station- that was awesome. So I would recommend them, but my advice is to just be very specific about what you want, and make sure you get all the details in your contract. Our planner also changed during our engagement and I think that was part of the issue we had with responsiveness, since our contact was new. She was very nice, just forgot some details (like putting aside some vegetarian hor'dervs for me which was a huge bummer but a small thing). They are also not the best value, they're pretty expensive. Overall I'm happy I went with them bc the service at the wedding and the quality of the food made the extra price worth it. One other thing- they only have Budweiser products, we did ask for Miller in our first meeting and the woman said it would be no problem. She didn't tell us it would be a $2 upcharge per person to have Miller instead! They waived that charge for us since we weren't told upfront, but just something to keep in mind!

Wedding Wire brilliantly deleted my review so unfortunately this won't be as long as before. (Thanks for nothing)
Taste of Excellence did very well with our wedding. I found out last minute (at the wedding) that the main person who had been helping us plan all along would not attend because of a personal matter and this was frustrating but understandable. I'm happy to say that the remainder of the staff worked tremendously well with the exception of one shattered champagne flute right under the bride's chair (and bare feet). Regardless, many things I thought i'd have to do myself were taken care of without my asking. I was also notified of several point persons who would be handling things for me and they responded to any request without delay or question. I was even brought drinks throughout the night which was nice since we had no chance to go to the bar. I would recommend ToE to others; their food was delicious and few, if any, guests complained about anything. (we have picky families)

Organization and tasting before the wedding was great! Staff was easy to get ahold of and returned calls and emails quickly. The food was wonderful! It was slightly more expensive than other caterers in the area. Some service issues the day of the wedding, but they were taken care of eventually. Ice cream bar that we had ordered and paid a pretty good price for was set out after many of the guests had already left and was only available for less than an hour. If I had known this I wouldn't have paid the extra money for it. Overall, everyone enjoyed the food and we were happy with our choice.

We worked with both Chris and Jeannie from Taste and they were very nice during every interaction. Taste is extremely flexible. We provided our own signature cocktail and macaroni and cheese recipes, both of which they made. We also ordered our own ice cream and they served it for us for no additional charge.

Despite all these special requests, Taste was courteous, and very customer-service oriented.

Mary Jane was awesome, any question or item we needed she was there to accomadate us. The event went off without a hitch. My only small complaint is that the food was a GREAT as our tasting. It was still good but I guess there is a difference in making two plates and 135 plates. I also heard cocktail hour was awesome. Thank you to the staff of Taste of Excellence!

Taste of Excellence did an AMAZING job with catering at our wedding. They provided fun, and tasty action stations which were a huge hit for our 200+ guests. Not only did they go above and beyond what was expected, but they detailed every inch on the reception so that it was perfect for our guests.

The director is slightly hard to get ahold of and e-mails were not returned promptly, but that can not overshadow the amazing work that they did. I highly suggest this caterer. They will provide you with everything you want to make your day perfect!

A Taste of Excellence did an amazing job with our wedding reception. From the initial tasting with our families, we knew we had made the right choice. Plus, their amazing food is coupled with great service and reps who go out of their way to make sure their clients have the event they dream of. Mary Jane was helpful during the planning process, and made appropriate suggestions in terms of what we needed and what we didn't. The day of the event, she was there to see that things ran smoothly. Our Day of Coordinator, Heidzillas, affirmed that Mary Jane was great to work with. A few things we weren't going to include initially were changed when we took Mary Jane's advice. And I'm glad we did -- the antipasto display was a hit! I would definitely recommend A Taste of Excellence to anyone planning a wedding, large event, or even at-home party since they offer so much beyond the traditional wedding catering.

We at first leaned towards this caterer because they were the cheapest caterer who worked with our venue, but they turned out to also have the best food and the best service. The food was superb, even though we were running a little off of schedule (the asparagus was a little overdone, but all of the meals were excellent). They cook all of their food on site -- no sternos. Everyone said that they couldn't believe it was "wedding food." They served us a full tasting meal even before we had booked them and we met the chef who was in charge of our wedding and discussed his signature dishes. They ended up making a vegetarian option for our wedding that wasn't even on their original menu. They allowed people to change meal options even the week of! Truly a pleasure to work with.

This caterer was excellent, we had a very large guest list and a very small budget, they were very accommodating and attentive. I would highly recommend this caterer.

We received so many compliments on the food and quality of service at our reception. I plan to use them again in the future for catering for parties and other events. It was very easy to set up a payment plan and choose food that we liked for our reception. The cocktail hour set up was absolutely gorgeous and I can't compliment the serving staff enough. They managed to pull it all together even with the 10 minute downpour that happened for our tent reception.
