  • Working with A Taste of Excellence and Medeana was truly a pleasure and a gift for our wedding. She was able to take our ideas, which seemed to have other caterers confused and made the day ours. They made everything easy for us. The food was excellent, and everyone loved everything. Not having a sit-down dinner and having stations of food that everyone loved was inspired. Everyone complimented the food and food choices, and everyone had their fill. They were even able to help us find a cake designed and baker when ours fell through and the cake was fantastic. It was truly a pleasure having them cater our wedding and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a truly great experience for any event. They made everything easy for us and helped take the worry from us.

  • EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE We worked with Kaitlyn for our daughter's wedding at the Old Courthouse in Cleveland, Ohio. I cannot say enough good things about her. She was excellent in communicating with me from another state to put together an amazing wedding. She worked with all our vendors and coordinated everything from food to setup to the events. She made sure we understood everything and told us about the cost up front. She is organized, professional and a delight to work with. She kept us calm, when we had concerns, and made us very happy. You cannot go wrong with this group. The food was excellent. Many guests raved about the dinner and the amount of dinner that was served. THANK YOU for helping make this an amazing day for our daughter.

  • 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.

  • The food was fantastic...many of our guests commented on how good it was! Medeana was a joy to work with from the very beginning until the night of the reception. She was very attentive to the details and flexible as we changed our minds throughout the process. We had minor complaints, but even those were handled very professionally!!

  • Our food was AMAZING!! We rented our dishware and linens as well which were perfect! We used the staff as our bartenders and they were nothing but professional. Kaitlyn was heaven sent! I could get a hold of her at anytime and she was nothing but accommodating. We received amazing reviews from our guests on how great the food was and how huge the portions were!! I couldn't have had such an amazing wedding day without them!

  • 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... Read more

  • I absolutely love this dream Venue. The night was an elegant affair. The exclusive catering company was amazing - I worked with Madeline from taste of excellence and she was absolutely perfect. I was worried about it being too bright in June but he lighting was perfectly romantic. Use DJ Troy and pay for the extra sounds system - acoustics in the all marble building are difficult and you need an experienced DJ. Make sure you go with someone experienced I have been to other receptions in this and in the courthouse and a less experienced DJ is a HUGE drag on the evening. Make sure you book EARLY! This venue is good for a old courthouse feel but for a smaller group.

  • Taste of excellence was a wonderful addition to our wedding day. Our first tasting was amazing and we knew we wanted to work with them. Along with the food, they provided our linens including tablecloths and napkins. Our food was amazing on the day of and we got so many compliments on our passed appetizers. Stephanie was great to work with and was prompt with emails and questions. The only thing I wish they had provided was chair linens! We were extremely satisfied nonetheless!

  • Hired A Tase Of Excellence for our wedding this upcoming July 2016 and we can't wait! Everything they have done for us has been extremely professional and organized. The tasting was fantastic, I couldn't believe how accommodating they were.

  • We came across the venue before coming across A Taste of Excellence. We fell in love with our venue (Mapleside Farms). We were very happy with A Taste of Excellence (the sole caterer for that venue). We were very lucky to work with Riki Schmigel who answered all of our questions and was enthusiastic about our choices. The whole day was a great success!

  • I have such mixed feelings about how to review A Taste of Excellence (TOE) Positives: On the day of my wedding, they were incredible. The food was amazing (many people told me it was the best wedding food they have ever had) and the staff were wonderful (Stacy/Pam!). Every time a staff member walked by me, they made sure to ask if I needed anything. They were so attentive, which was very appreciated. Negatives: in the months leading up to our wedding, we were half-tempted to fire TOE and find another caterer. Stephanie was our coordinator, and though she was extremely nice and knowledgeable, she was often very difficult to get a hold of. We totally understand that our wedding was in the middle of wedding season and she was VERY busy, but it became very frustrating when we would call and the receptionist would tell us she was at her desk and transfer us to her, and Stephanie would ignore the call. Furthermore, there were many emails where we would ask 3-5 questions, and she woul... Read more

  • disappointed -food allergies ignored It was very difficult getting pricing on a venue compared to all of the other vendors I contacted. We were open to a Saturday or Sunday wedding so we wanted pricing on both days. I had to contact Karen Levin several times to get pricing. We had 3 guests with food allergies so I made sure they were noted in our contract & in our seating chart that I gave to our planner Medeana Hobar. We were promised time & time again by Medeana that they would handle everything & not to worry. The day of the wedding none of A Taste Of Excellence staff was told what was going on. I had to personally make sure they had the correct food. Table 5 had two guests with allergies & both were served regular meals. Luckily since they were seated so close to our table I was able to tell the servers that they both had received the wrong meals. Then when the server returned she brought my grandmothers plain meal to our gluten free guest and by the time I saw it he had already s... Read more
