If it was as simple as pressing a few buttons, why would characters make a big deal of "real" food being superior in taste?
I don't recall the Enterprise-D/E crew complaining about food all that much. It might have lacked individual flair, but it was consistently good.
In fact, Riker actively praises it in Lonely Among Us:
ANTICAN: But we have seen humans eat meat.
RIKER: You've seen something as fresh and tasty as meat, but inorganically materialised out of patterns used by our transporters.
ANTICAN: This is sickening. It's barbaric.
