We are an award-winning caterer for over 25 years to celebrities, royalty, nationally televised events, and your next-door neighbor's wedding. Frankly, that kind of success was never dreamed of when we founded Elegant Fare in 1981. Back then, we were a home-delivered food service of individual gourmet meals. Not until 1986, when Founder Anne Lisbin changed our focus to off-premise catering, did the current business begin to realize its true nature.

A quantum leap in our growth came in 1993, when Elegant Fare built the first facility in the tri-state area designed exclusively for off-premise catering. In addition to providing daily food service for companies with over 800 employees, we are now winning prestigious local contracts with the likes of The Cincinnati Art Museum and Tiffany's.

By the mid-1990s, individuals and corporations at every level of society recognized our commitment to excellence. While we're always excited when the famous (Elton John, Rosa Parks, and Pavaroti) and influential (Procter & Gamble, and American Financial, and the Western & Southern Financial Masters & Women's Open) embrace our service, we pride ourselves in bringing that same excitement to your local fund-raiser or church event.

Customer Testimonials

You were a pleasure to work with and your staff was awesome

We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary April 21st 2017 at Cooper Creek Event Center and Elegant Fare catered the event. Renee was excellent to work with from the tasting right up to the night of the party. She was very patient and understanding as she worked with me to pick out the appetizers, the salads and the entree. The night of the party everything was just delicious. We loved the food and highly recommend E.F. to anyone who is looking to wow a crowd. Thanks

The food was great, the staff was attentive, friendly, courteous and professional. The evening and the wedding managed by you was seamless

The day of the wedding I was so much more relaxed because I knew that you had everything under control! The wedding and reception went off perfectly in large part because of you.

Thank you for taking your time to give us such an important and wonderful part of our dream day! You did such a fantastic job!!
