Working with Taste Catering was one of the best parts of our whole wedding experience. They helped us customize our menus and didn't stop until they knew we were 100% satisfied. The food was delicious and fresh the day of the wedding. The steak was extremely tender it basically melted in your mouth and the mahi-mahi was AMAZING. We couldn't have been happier with all of our food options at the cocktail hour and reception, and Taste Catering made that possible!

Mallard Island is a dream of a wedding venue. When I first walked in to the yacht club my heart was racing; it was the most beautiful place I could ever imagine getting married in. The staff, food and grounds are all top notch. I never thought we could get married in a place that fit our personalities so well. Danielle and her entire staff said yes to every request we had. They were so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. Not only were we completely satisfied but my guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue. Mallard made our dreams come true in every aspect possible. The only problem we had was our dream day ended too soon. Wish we could do it all over again!

Our wedding at Mallard Island Yacht Club (using Taste Catering) was an absolute dream come true. Everything offered was top notch, from the customer service through planning in the months and days leading up to our wedding, and everything on the day of our wedding. We could not imagine getting married anywhere but Mallard, and highly recommend this venue and catering company! Danielle will put your mind at ease, and the entire staff works so cooperatively to ensure that your day is picture perfect.

Our entire experience at the Mallard Island Yacht Club was truly amazing. From the planning with Danielle to our wedding day, it was unforgettable. Not only was the food absolutely terrific, the service was incredible. All of the staff went above and beyond. Our wedding was better than we could ever imagine. Our wedding went off without a hitch!
I would recommend this amazing venue to all. Not only is it a beautiful and immaculate venue, the staff cannot be beat!

I have never been to a wedding with better food, and I'm not just saying that because it was ours. tee hee! Every single one of our guests RAVED and still rave about the food the night of our wedding. Everything went so smooth that my husband and I are still amazed.

There are a few things after the fact we had wished were a little different (for example, how someone wanted their steak cooked was never asked and during the cocktail hour, the raw bar was only refilled twice), but during the actual night we didn't notice these few things so it didn't really matter.

Overall, what an amazing venue, team and location to have. If you have this venue on your list of options, BOOK IT! They are so incredible to work with and did such an amazing job making our special day the best we could have ever imagined.

Taste Catering provided excellent service at our wedding last month. The planning process was simple and we were able to tailor our wedding to our personal preferences. At the wedding we had excellent, prompt service and all courses of food were delicious. Our guests had a wonderful time and talked about how good the cocktail hour and dinners were. I would recommend Taste to anyone planning their wedding.

All of our guest were raving about how amazing the service, food and attention to detail. Paula was so sweet and helpful. She was extemely attentive to our needs all night long and we were so happy to have her by our side!
Nicole really is fantastic! She accommodated us when our plans fell through due to horrible weather.
She made a day that could have been high stress, stress free and magical.
Thank you for everything!

I got married at the Mallard Island Yacht Club on April 25, 2014 and it was incredible!

When I first met with the coordinator, Danielle, she said "don't worry about a thing". How right she was!! Not only did she guide me for months during the planning stages, she gave me great ideas as well. I don't think I could have been so calm, collected and happy if it wasn't for her.

Our entire day was spectacular. The venue, staff, service and food exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend getting married here.

Thank you to Mallard Island and Taste Catering for helping to create such an amazing event. It was everything I dreamed it would be and more. Danielle was AMAZING to work with and there are not enough words to explain how kind, helpful, professional, and wonderful she was throughout the entire wedding planning process. Danielle put us at ease and went above and beyond to create a day I will remember forever. Each and every guest was impressed with all aspects of our wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and took my breath away and we have received TONS of compliments on the decor, professionalism of the staff, and especially the food. I would recommend Taste Catering to any of my friends and family - my wedding day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Taste Catering, and more specifically, Nicole, made my wedding spectacular. Taste doesn't just provide food for the wedding; this company takes care of every aspect of wedding planning from vendor suggestions, room layout, and budgeting to venue set-up, answering every question that comes up leading up to the event, and serving as a go-between for the vendors. Nicole without a doubt was the reason my wedding was as fun to plan as it was. I suggested entree options that weren't in the Taste Database and Nicole gracefully brought my suggestions to the chef who executed my ideas to rave reviews of our guests. The food was a hit and so was the wedding. The entire experience was enjoyable and the wedding itself left me speechless.

I used Taste for a wedding a Mallard Island. The team is very nice to work with but wow did my timeline get waaaaaay off schedule when the Matre D went rogue which really ruined the wedding for us bc it had a landslide effect. But let's focus on the food itself- We got the platinum package and I got rave reviews on the cocktail hour food but the dinner was a real miss (Lobster and Steak) and a chicken dish. We aren't picky eaters but we both ate about 2 bites of our food and left our sweet heart table because we were so disappointed with the temperature of the food, seasoning and quality of cooking- everyone told us they had to spit out their lobster it was "sandy & tough" (pretty embarrassing when you spend $90K+ for a wedding).
We were shocked for the price of service how disappointing the bar package was (really pathetic selection) so there's definitely added pricing here to add on. We also didn't get the cake because Carlos and the local bakery doesn't get great reviews and it's a total fabrication that the cake is included- you are basically only covered for the sheet cakes for serving. They also had limited selection of options compared to other venues in the NJ area so that was a bit disappointing as well.
In summary: The good: the people you work with & the cocktail hour food; The bad: the entrees, bar packages, not having a great pastry chef on staff is very confusing for a wedding caterer

The Stateroom and Taste Catering did an excellent job with our wedding! I had an idea of having a boardwalk themed wedding and Nicole helped me amend my entire menu to fit my theme, complete with zeppoles, french fries, cheese steaks and Italian hot dogs! Nicole maintained excellent communication even through all of the changes brought by the hurricane. I can't say enough about how excellent Nicole was with planning my day! A special thank you to Marcy and Paula who provided excellent service to us on our wedding day. Our families are still raving about the food and service provided for our wedding! I would most definitely recommend anyone without hesitation to have their ceremony and reception with Nicole and the crew of the Stateroom. Thank you again!

The food at our wedding was amazing. Our guests kept commenting on how good everything was. Taste also worked with allergies and food preferences, which was great. My only complaint is that we were told that while we were in the bridal suite getting ready before the reception that the appetizers would be brought in to us and we could try them and while some were, not all of the selections were brought by. Out of about 15 or so appetizers we maybe got to try 5, which was kind of disappointing and the same five were boxed up for us. I know there were certain ones that we were really looking forward to having, but that's just a small detail. The food was excellent and you will not be disappointed in its quality.

Service/Professionalism: Planning a wedding from out of state is not an easy task but Nicole (and Sue in Sales) made everything happen with ease. I feel like I switched a bunch of menu options (i.e. "so what if I swap shrimp for lobster, what's that cost?", "I changed my mind and want chicken instead of fish") and the ladies never blinked an eye. Nicole helped me through the entire process, noting every detail along the way. The day of the wedding, Paula was our personal server and was awesome, she was wonderful to deal with and managed to always be on top of things without ever intruding on what we were doing.

Food/Value: We did a decent search prior to picking a place and Taste was by far the most accommodating and offered multiple menus with an array of customization options. We were a little nervous to sign a contract with a venue/caterer without tasting the food but after reading reviews we went for and hoped for the best. After the tasting, we changed some things to better match what we were looking for and my husband and I ended up with EXACTLY what we wanted on our day. Although I was too busy to really get to sample most of cocktail hour, my husband did, as did my guests and everyone is still raving about it. I love that my friends recently told me they were so excited to see a new tray of food come by b/c they didn't know what would be coming next, between the passed apps and the stations they were impressed...and they hadn't even gotten to dinner! Your guests could easily fill up on cocktail hour food, but make sure they don't b/c dinner is worth waiting for! I've been to over 12 weddings in the past 2 years and (maybe I'm biased) our food was top-notch. Even friends of mine who had lobster and filet at their wedding in NJ commented that ours was 'so much better'. I would recommend Taste 100 times over!
You get so much for your money!

I would like to take the time and truly thank the members of Taste Catering for doing such an amazing job. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding, the staff was always there to help you, assisted with making sure the overall night went smoothly! The food was outstanding!!! From the minute guest started to arrive there was appetizers on the table, pass around food and just such a pleasure to have there. I would recommend Taste catering and The Boat House restaurant to anyone thinking about having their wedding in LBI and wanted a nice casual or elegant wedding. I want to thank everyone who took part in my wedding and making everything come together, it was definitely my thought of my Cinderella wedding! Thank you again

Taste Catering is a fantastic vendor. They not only provided the wonderful (and delicious) food for our wedding but also were of great assistance with the setting up for our wedding and the break down of the decorations at our reception site. Our reception was at a yacht club in LBI where we essentially brought in all our own decorations and vendors. The venue looked fantastic and I cannot thank Taste enough for their assistance. Additionally, all of the staff that was there for the reception were fantastic. We had our own designated server (Lauren) and the matre de, they were both fantastic and saw to it that we were able to eat at our wedding :) Additionally, when there was a red wine mishap with my wedding dress they were of great assistance with treating and attempting to remove the stain. I would recommend Taste to anyone!

Taste Catering truly made our day special. Erin and Nicole, their coordinators, were so pleasant and incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. It was such a pleasure to work with them!

Having gone to many weddings, and eaten many a wedding meal in the past, I expected the beef and fish dishes to be pretty good, while the chicken and vegetarian entrees just so-so. Boy, was I ever surprised and proven wrong at our tasting! Taste made each and every entree so delicious! The filet was tender and perfectly cooked. The fish was divine. The chicken was moist and definitely far from the typical wedding generic frozen stuffed chicken that you would expect. Even the vegetarian dish, portobello napoleon, was to die for; so much so, that my father (a real meat and potatoes kind of guy) couldn't get enough of it!

The dinners were presented the same on our wedding day: hot, perfectly cooked, and DELICIOUS! The cocktail hour was amazing as well! Each and every appetizer was better than the next. Do yourself a favor and do not pass on the coconut shrimp!

Finally, Tony, the owner of Taste, really has the presentation and delivery down to a science. The food displays during cocktail hour were beautiful and unique. The servers and bartenders were delightful and attentive. We even had a special server designated to my groom and I who never stopped bringing us food and drinks. To those who hear that you won't eat on your wedding day--this is not the case with Taste! Our server did not bring out my groom's and my dinners until she knew that we were ready and not making our rounds talking to guests. As a result, we enjoyed a piping hot meal. Also, at the end of the night, they sent extra food up to our room just to ensure that we had tried everything! What a nice surprise!

Taste catering was so organized, and ran like a well-oiled machine. I could go on and on about how wonderful they are! Brides, do yourselves a favor and do NOT hesistate to book Taste. They will make your dream day complete! Thank you Tony, Patty, and Taste!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Taste Catering for making our wedding pefect!!! I do not even know where to begin with how excellent everything was! From day number 1, everything was just easy. And that's how it should be. Taste helped guide us through every aspect and every little detail of the day! I honestly cannot put into words how grateful we are to taste catering.
The staff at our wedding was perfect! Always had a smile on their face, very attentive to our guests, and ANYTHING we needed they were on top of it in a heartbeat! It was very impressive how fast the food was put at the tables, and once our guests were finished with their meals, how fast it was cleared from the tables.
Our guests are still talking about the food! They were amazed with the amount of food that came out during cocktail hour. They said it was never ending, and whenever they turned around another server was right there offering more delicious food! And the entrees were amazing!! The presentation of the meals was beautiful, and the food came out of the kitchen HOT! You do a wonderful job serving a large amount of people!
Once again, THANK YOU! I HIGHLY recommend taste catering to any bride out there. Their attention to detail, staff, food, and dedication to their company is admirable. Keep up that good work, Taste Catering and hopefully we'll cross paths in the future! ;)

Taste Catering (and more specifically, The Stateroom) was AMAZING!!! I couldn't have asked for better service! Nicole was attentive, responsive to all of my emails/phone calls, professional and an absolute blessing to my wedding! From the initial meeting at the Roadshow, to the day AFTER my wedding, Nicole was wonderful!! More so, the serving staff, especially Paula, were pleasant, respectful and provided wonderful service! I expected the usual frozen and reheated "wedding food" that I've had at so many Weddings, but Taste provided food that tasted like it came out of a 5 Star Chef's kitchen. I very rarely fill out these ratings and comments, but I was blown away by Taste, that I needed to share my experience!! Thank you so much for making my Wedding everything I dreamed of and More!!

Overall we were very happy with Taste Catering. As with most brides, I unfortunately didn't get to eat too much, particularly during the cocktail hour, but I was told by all my guests how delicious the food was. Erin was very accessible and great at getting back to all my questions and changes. They are very prepared with planning forms, etc, which gave me peace of mind that everything would run smoothly. My only real concern was that during the rehearsal, things I had discussed with Erin prior to that day seemed to have been forgotten or not noted - but a quick conversation resolved all of that.

We had a wonderful summer wedding at The Stateroom. Nicole was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. Renovations made to the venue during our engagement only made it nicer, and our guests really enjoyed The Stateroom. The cocktail hour space has a totally different feel than the ballroom upstairs (more Tommy Bahama and beachy compared to elegant), but both are beautiful! We would definitely recommend it (also based on pricing as we compared it to many places, mostly in Monmouth County, before deciding where to have it).

There are no perfect words to express just how we feel about this catering company. It's not everyday that you can find a catering company that works to meet your every need. They were beyond the word accommodating. Not only did they customize each detail of the menu for us, meet the needs of individuals with allergies, walk us through the ceremony procedures, and deliver phenomenal tasting food, Tony (the owner), even fluffed my dress before walking down the aisle.

When having a tasting, the food usually will always taste perfect, but when you get to the wedding day, it usually differs a bit from what you tasted. However, that does not apply with this company. The food was identical to what we had at our tasting.

Not only was the food delicious but the service from Nicole and Erin was outstanding. Nicole worked with us from the minute we became interested in Taste Catering. She is kind, caring, and dedicated to her wedding professionalism. Nicole has fantastic communication, which is so important when planning a wedding. We always received a response to any question we had and she made it a point to plan with us. She worked hard to make sure we all were involved in the wedding process together. Erin was also a pleasure to work with. We only had the opportunity to work with her on the day of our rehearsal but she was fabulous as well. Erin walked us through our entire ceremony, seeing to every small and large detail.

Tony is very dedicated to his business. It is amazing when you see an owner attend as many weddings as he can. He truly cares and that alone makes a bride and groom feel like a king and queen. Thank you for your dedication to your company and couples. It is that which makes your business thrive.

There are no perfect words to express just how we feel about this catering company. It's not everyday that you can find a catering company that works to meet your every need. They were beyond the word accommodating. Not only did they customize each detail of the menu for us, meet the needs of individuals with allergies, walk us through the ceremony procedures, and deliver phenomenal tasting food, Tony (the owner), even fluffed my dress before walking down the aisle.

When having a tasting, the food usually will always taste perfect, but when you get to the wedding day, it usually differs a bit from what you tasted. However, that does not apply with this company. The food was identical to what we had at our tasting.

Not only was the food delicious but the service from Nicole and Erin was outstanding. Nicole worked with us from the minute we became interested in Taste Catering. She is kind, caring, and dedicated to her wedding professionalism. Nicole has fantastic communication, which is so important when planning a wedding. We always received a response to any question we had and she made it a point to plan with us. She worked hard to make sure we all were involved in the wedding process together. Erin was also a pleasure to work with. We only had the opportunity to work with her on the day of our rehearsal but she was fabulous as well. Erin walked us through our entire ceremony, seeing to every small and large detail.

Tony is very dedicated to his business. It is amazing when you see an owner attend as many weddings as he can. He truly cares and that alone makes a bride and groom feel like a king and queen. Thank you for your dedication to your company and couples. It is that which makes your business thrive.

We anxiously await the next opportunity to work with Taste Catering. They met and exceeded every expectation we could have for our wedding day. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Without you, our wedding day could not have been all that it was. Read less

The service that Taste of Catering and in particular, Nicole offered to us was beyond our imagination. The planning of the wedding was effortless with her advice. Suggestions on vendors including florist, dj and cake made the day one everyone will always remember. Finally, the service provided by The Boathouse and the food itself were wonderful! Many, many guests commented that it was the "best" food at a wedding they had attended! We agreed! They took care of the bride and groom with special treatments. We just can not say enough. Wish my husband and I could get married again.......we would book with Nicole and Taste of Catering in a heartbeat!

We were extremely pleased with Taste of LBI. Right from the start with my wife's initial meeting with them, TLBI was very customer friendly. The entire process of receiving information, evaluating options, making our food decisions, arranging special elements of the reception, and getting them the order information ahead of time was a smooth affair. The pre-event material they provided us was clear and they were very responsive to any questions we had.

The overwhelming consensus of our guests, and most importantly....us, was the food was fantastic. We did not hear a single complaint. People loved the food--the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, the main meal appetizers, the meal, and the dessert.

The service was professional and exceptional. We were amazed at the efficiency of the staff in setting and clearing the tables--it was done in minutes so everyone essentially ate at the same time.

My wife may be able to do better justice to TLBI than me. I highly recommend them.

Taste Catering are perfectionists in every way. I would highly recommend hiring Taste Catering for your wedding. The experience was enjoyable from the first meeting. The food was fantastic. All of our guests have been complimenting on how good the food tasted. They were also very happy with the amount of food at the cocktail hour. They said everything was delicious. My meal was so good I think I might be one of the few brides that cleaned her plate! Overall my husband and I were very happy with Taste Catering.

I cannot say enough about the Taste Catering. Tony and Nicole are the best!. They were there whenever we needed them, reponded and acted on our every need and want and did so everytime with true professionalism. They treated us like we were their only wedding when they had 3 that same day. Both were there the day of the wedding to see that everything was the exact way we had planned. Most important, the food. Our tasting was superb, but you never know what it will be when cooking and serving 200+. The food on the day of the weding was wonderful in taste, displayed artistically, plentiful and served timely. They exceeded our expectations in all areas: food, presentation, experience, service, planning, professionalism and integrity. If you are looking for a caterer, Taste Catering is the one!

I highly recommend Taste Catering. My wedding was far from where I live, and I was able to do most of the planning/etc over the phone or through emails. They were extremely accommodating to my requests and were even able to provide excellent food without any onions to avoid a food allergy. Everyone was extremely happy with the food and the service, and Nicole was so easy to work with that I didn't need to waste money on a wedding planner.

We had our reception at The Boat House Restaurant in Beach Haven, which is catered by Taste. Tony was phenomenal throughout the entire process and he and his team did a great job at capturing the look and feel we were going for. Our guests raved about the food, which doesn't seem to be typical of a wedding. I highly recommend Taste!

Taste Catering provided impeccable service and creative and delicious gourmet food for my wedding at The Mallard island Yacht Club in Long Beach Island, NJ. Tony Baldino of Taste doubled as our wedding planner and walked us through the entire ceremony process at the mansion. My guests, who are bigtime "foodies" raved about the food for months to come. If I ever have a chance to have him cater for me in the LBI area again, I certainly will. You cannot go wrong with Taste!

Tony and his staff were a DREAM to work with. When I arrived at our venue the morning of the wedding and saw Tony I knew that I had nothing to worry about. The food and service were beyond outstanding. His wait staff was great and I still have people writing us letters and calling to say what an amazing time they had. I honestly can not say enough good things about Tony my family and I just love him, he knocked it out of the park!
