I got married at Sunset Terrace at Lakeview on Memorial Day weekend. We initially had a horrible experience with Chef Mario Izzo, but our experience completely improved when Taste of Excellence obtained the contract with the venue. Lakeview Park and the inside venue, Sunset Terrace, was the perfect place for my husband and I to get married. The venue suited us perfectly and had a beautiful back porch for our guests to take in the amazing lake view! The staff at Taste of Excellence were perfectly professional. Chris and Taylor walked us through each step of the planning. Taylor did an amazing job on our wedding day. We were confronted with rain during the time of our ceremony, she got the guests into the venue and seated quickly so that we could resume the ceremony. The staff checked on my husband and I all throughout the night. They handled all aspects of the ceremony and reception, which allowed us to be completely present with our guests, enjoying our special day. I would highly recommend this venue to brides who are looking for a beautiful setting. It was the best venue that we found on Lake Erie. The only thing to be mindful of is to be sure that your date is not only booked with Taste of Excellence, but also directly with the park. This ended up being an issue for us due to the horrible service of Mario Izzo, but it was straightened out with Taste of Excellence. Also, be sure to book the beach for the ceremony or photos directly with the park as well, if that is how you are planning your wedding. I can guarantee that it will be a great experience with Taste of Excellence!Sent on 12/18/2016

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.Sent on 03/03/2016
