This Event Has Been Postponed Until Spring of 2022.



Every year, we look forward to connecting our community with our local restaurant industry. After careful consultation with our sponsors and participating restaurants, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Taste of Mentor event until spring of 2022. Currently, our restaurant community are faced with an incredible labor shortage, and we do not want to put undue stress providing service at multiple locations during this event. 

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you at next year’s event. Our local restaurants rely on the patronage of our community.






Come sample a variety of Mentor’s cuisine by attending Taste of Mentor presented by ERIEBANK. Please check back. We will be announcing the 2022 date soon! This event allows participants to sample appetizers, entrees, and desserts from some of the Mentor area's finest restaurants.

Each year, attendees from the Mentor community sample the cuisine and evaluate the presentation and display from each restaurant. Winners are then announced after votes are counted.

Best Appetizer: Marion's Mediterranean Restaurant & Tapas Bar (Honorable Mention: Pastina Rustic Italian Kitchen)

Best Entree: Ridgewood Kitchen & Spirits (Honorable Mention: Billy's - A Cappelli Martini Bar)

Congrats to our winners and thank you to all who participated!
