we will be eating there again
Went with a friend. It was early and not crowded so we asked if they would hold our table a few minutes because the really cute clothing store next to it was open late. They did, were really sweet about it. We went shopping came back and had a lovely meal. Both of us had fish, different fish, and both were excellent.

Good food/Fair service
We generally like to try out new restaurants and when we can get a discount or a coupon for them it's a bonus.However, I feel like that if you have a coupon or a discount then that means you automatically get discounted by the waitress. This is not always the case but here at this restaurant it was. As soon as the waitress realized we had a Bloomspot coupon the service went downhill. We asked for water and had to reask twice. And she made her way by our table maybe once the entire time. I still tipped 20% on the full price of the meal without the coupon but had I not felt like the service was due to our coupon her tip would have been downgraded. The food more than made up for it though. Skip the french fries though, they aren't worth it.

This one is a keeper
Interesting menu and everything is really tasty!. Have been here 4x and ordered-in twice. My teen age kids love it, as do my seriously foodie parents. Can hold its own with the really good restaurants in Santa Monica or further into town. A great, choice for Palisades, Malibu, Topanga residents. They do a lot of weekday deal/promotions as well (ie 50% off wine on Tuesdays).

Awesome Father's Day Brunch!
My family and my husbands family all got together at Taste for Father's Day. It started with a very nice gesture of bringing the fathers mimosas on their special day. Our server was very attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely amazing! Favorites at our table were the breakfast Panini, short rib grilled cheese and and southwest scramble. I don't usually care for breakfast potatoes but the ones at Taste came out crispy and light. They even had a kids menu for my four-year-old. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for pretty much any occasion!

I like fries and always eat a few ... But the fries at TASTE are the best I've ever had in my 77 years of life. The menu is interesting and we loved the heirloom tomato, watermelon, and Burrata salad. The grilled short rib and cheese sandwich was unbelievably delicious. That, along with the fries, is enough to keep me coming back even with having to deal with a 1/2 hour drive on Sunset Blvd from east of the 405.

The three of us were on our way to visit family in the hills of Pacific Palisades. Being from the east coast, and not sure where good restaurants might be, I looked to Opentable to make a convenient reservation for our outing. I knew it was well reviewed by others, so we selected Taste of Palisades. We were so delighted with our decision. The food was super, the best steak salad, I ever had, and the outdoor dining was very nice even if it was in front facing the parking lot. The umbrella and table settings gave off an outdoor vibe and gave real ambiance to location. We were glad we went, and will be back!

Excellent food all around!
This is the 3rd time our company has gone to Taste for a lunch celebration. There were 8 in our party and the service was prompt and fast. The server was aware of the fact that we needed to go back to work so this couldn't take 2 hours... even recommended items on the menu that came from the kitchen faster - not to mention she made other suggestions as to her fav's on the menu - I always appreciate that.
Food is always good - from the lettuce cups to salads to sandwiches/soup combos... very very good. The devils food cake, glazed banana desert is ridiculously good... HIGHLY recommended! ENJOY!

We've been to the other TASTE in West Hollywood , liked it and were glad to have this location open in our own neighborhood. Pacific palisades is pretty devoid of good dining experiences and TASTE is a welcome addition. The food is good, consistent, with gracious greetings, excellent service and a reasonsable tab to boot. We each did the prix fix three course dinner for $27. Usually that's the price for an
entree in Los Angeles. We've been there a number of times and will continue

Savory brunch, small portion size
Had a nice brunch this weekend at Taste, our first time to the restaurant. Lovely atmosphere: classy, serene and relaxed. Check-in/like the page on facebook gets you a free dessert or cinnamon roll served in a skillet (only 1 per table, though), next time would opt for dessert (menu looked amazing) over the roll. Hole-in-one with mushroom and french toast were both delicious, side of seasoned potatoes was good but not super flavorful. Small portion size left us still wanting, so not the greatest brunch value. Still curious about lunch and dinner though.

Always enjoy it, good food and great service. I didn't put kid friendly because it is a quieter upscale place, but I have seen kids, just not running around having kid fun place, more like going out with the grownups. Good beer selection too. Outdoor place is nice and the space heaters are artsy but it does face the parking lot.
I live in the Palisades and this is a great addition. Go there often! Food/service always excellent.

Very good neighborhood restaurant; we were there for dinner during DineLA Week and I had a nice three course dinner on the DineLA menu, and my wife ordered a la carte. I especially liked the mac and cheese as an appetizer, and the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. Friendly service.

A Casual Brunch Spot
I had brunch at Taste with a good friend of mine last weekend and we very much enjoyed our experience. The service was attentive but achieved a nice balance so that we could chat and eat without getting interrupted too often. The ambiance was great, not too casual but not too stuffy. And most importantly, we both liked everything we tried there. I will definitely be returning to Taste again soon.

Taste has it all. Food's fantastic, service is impeccable and the atmosphere is trendy but comfortable.

Great Food, Good Value for "nice"
Try the grilled romaine salad!!
Neighborhood place, we expected it to be .... 'ok'. Food was great, interesting twists. Service good, ambiance - good for a neighborhood place. Cross-over between 'neighborhood' and destination restaurant.

Real, Nice Neighborhood Bistro
Sat outside in the warm beautiful sunset. Food carefully and thoughtfully prepared with a tasty surprise in every dish (eg, Pork cutlet accompanied by "Mac & Cheese" was little shell pastas with truffle oil + cheese) including the deserts. Looking forward to returning.

Taste is like coming home...
We celebrated our anniversary at Taste... we celebrate all our special occasions there. The food's delicious, the ambiance is chic but comfortable and the staff treats you like family. Whether you're in the mood for meat, fish or pasta... it's all good. And don't forget their amazing bread pudding!

Bunch of friends, good times.
We had a party of 7 and had a great time. Good food! Too bad there isn't a full bar.

the happy hour small plates are very easy to share; the salades blend great tastes together.

Great brunch spot
I really enjoyed the foot at Taste. It was a great place for a Saturday brunch with friends. The patio was a great way to enjoy being outside and enjoying conversation.

Nice restaruant near Getty Villa
We had been at the Getty Villa and stopped at Taste for an early dinner. The restaurant was quiet - which is such a relief after the "hard surface" restaurant décor which seems so popular now makes most restaurants so noisy that you cannot carry on a conversation at your table. The food was interesting, tasty, and well presented and the service staff was attentive except for getting bread to the table (four requests to three servers). I definitely would recommend this restaurant if you are in the area. Parking was easy.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service are very good. My only complaint is that, at night, the restaurant is way too dark. It's almost impossible to read the menu.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Taste. It's a "go to" and I'm always pleased. Delicious blackened salmon on field greens, cooked perfectly to my request of medium rare.

Consistently Goid Food
I go to Taste often, both for lunch and dinner, and am never disappointed.
I love that you can bring your own wine for a nominal corkage,
