taste Philosophy


Whether it's the fresh herbs and produce at the Creekside Conference & Event Center, the award-winning wine selections at Mezzo, or the fresh seafood and meat delivered daily to Hubbard Grille, Taste searches out and uses the finest local and domestic products. We know that the fresher the ingredients, the finer your experience will be. Every menu item is carefully researched, crafted and taste-tested by our premier chefs and staff before the final item is ever set before you.


Innovation is key in any industry, but at Taste it's a top priority. From the evolving artwork and handcrafted cocktails at Hubbard to the versatile event options offered at Creekside Conference & Event Center, we strive for innovation and continuous improvement in all aspects of our business. Our chefs and bartenders are not only encouraged to change menus seasonally, but to invent weekend specials and continually look for new ways to delight our patrons.


Taste Hospitality is deeply involved in each of the neighborhoods where its restaurants call home. We are always watchful for ways to serve our communities, whether through charitable and community events or otherwise. We consider our customers to be our friends, our neighbors, and our family. Our patrons take pride in what we do as much as we do and we want to make sure that every customer's experience is the best it can be.


The heart and soul of our business is the hospitality extended to everyone we meet. It can be found the personable service extended to every guest in our restaurants. Hospitality is woven through each and every role in our business to ensure that we don't just strive to get it right—we go above and beyond to make each experience a memorable one.

  • "The atmosphere and environment at Creekside Event Center are perfect. The facility is impeccable…upscale and modern looking while warm and inviting with great views. The service was perfect. They were on top of constant freshening of the coffee, yet they were unobtrusive. Our entire group mentioned that they really like Creekside and look forward to our next meeting hosted there." Margaret Early Limited Stores LLC
  • "Our entire experience with Mezzo was flawless (and I'm hard to please.) It was great to be able to work with a team that understands the basic rules of service and class. The staff was fabulous, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. I would highly recommend the facility to my friends and the work that was done spoke volumes for itself. I have received several emails and calls saying it was "the best" shower they have been to ever. I'd like to take credit for the itinerary and planning...but it was everyone at Mezzo who made it happen." Robin Moran
  • "Our whole Hubbard Grille experience was completely top-notch. The food was fantastic and received raves from our guests. We were still receiving thanks and compliments at our wedding. The service was wonderful and the crew was beyond attentive. Our guests were very well taken care of and had a wonderful evening. Scott and I could not be more pleased. We will certainly keep Hubbard Grille in mind for our next celebration." Stephanie Van Den Berg
