I went to taste for my wedding
I went to taste for my wedding anniversary. We were not sure how bit was going to be, but the website and menu looked promising. At first glance the restraint looks very modern and the bar looks inviting. We were greeted at the door be the host and seated very quickly. My wife ordered a drink which she says was made very well. My wife ordered the chicken and waffle,and I ordered the short ribs. The food was spectacular. I was surprised to be eating this great of food in Dayton. We finished the meal off with one of the best strawberry cakes I gave had. The whole experience was amazing. I highly recommend eating here. We will be coming back soon!

Great food. The chef is creative
Great food. The chef is creative and imaginative in preparing variations on traditional southern cuisine. Highly recommend this for lovers of southern cuisine or anyone who wants to get beyond the standard meat and potatoes restaurant fare.

We'll be back for more!
Our first time at this O.T. Find. The gumbo appetizer had a great, smoky flavor. The Taste salad had a light, flavorful dressing, complemented by sweet cornbread croutons. We enjoyed fish in a light but crunchy cornmeal coating. For dessert, we shared the sweet potato pecan pie, baked in a flaky crust. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay to hear the live band setting up for 8 pm.

Good was delicious. I got
Good was delicious. I got the short ribs. Yum! It is a upscale soul food restaurant. I ordered too much food so couldn't eat it all. My husbands catfish was a smaller portion than he expected so of course he finished off my short rib. The black eyes pea soup was best I ever had. My husband doesn't like black eyed peas. He tried to eat all mine up-he loved the way they prepared theirs. It's great. We'll be back.

New favorite in Dayton
Can't say enough about "Taste". Great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, dinners were great. Met the owner and he has a great passion and commitment for providing a top-notch experience. This is my new favorite restaurant in Dayton. Late Friday they added a jazz/soul/funk band and they were great, too.

This was my 4th visit to Taste, but my first Brunch. My sisters and I took my mom to the Mothers Day Brunch and everyone loved the food, the atmosphere, the jazz, and the customer service! I will definitely return!

It is in the Name!
WafflesThisThis Restaurant Has Amazing Food That Has Something For Everyone. ThIs Time We Went For The Brunch And The Variety Was Great For A Smaller Restaurant. Fried Chicken And Wallfles! French Toast That Is Killer, Hearty Biscuit Gravy. The Only Downside Is The Price For Kids. Our 3 Year Old Who Ate Part Of One Plate Of Food Still Cost The Full $11. They Also Have Great Dinners And Live Music.

Taste Restaurant in Trotwood, Ohio
My party of 4, one had an emergency and could not make it) thoroughly enjoyed the Gospel Brunch at The Taste Restaurant on Sunday, Jue 2. This was my fourth time at The Taste Restaurant and I had no complaints. The chef made the best omelet that I have ever had. Their sweet potato waffles were delicious as well.
Our reservation worked out perfectly. Our table was ready and waiting and we were shown to our table immediately. I truly appreciated the Open Table reeservation.
My group plans to return the first Sunday in July for the next Gospel Brunch.

Taste 1st time
I think the Gumbo is the best I've had in years. The Barbeque Shrimp on Grits is amazing. And then to top it off The Vibe Five music is incredible. Can't wait to go back.

Target audience well served
Taste impressed us as a place devoted to upscale members of our African-American community. As they filled up on a Friday, I saw only about four white people, including us. I'm not fond of segregation, maybe the rest of Dayton needs to get to know this place; we were well-served and the food was fine. Taste changes during the day, from lunch to happy hour to dinner to jazz club, with a different menu for each. We had none of those, but rather the Restaurant Week specials. Calabrian crab chili was addictive but I felt the crab was lost in it. The chicken carbonara pleased my wife, and I thought the lamb chops were rave-worthy; big portion in a peppery brown gravy. The Cajun theme of the food is not too aggressive. We'll be back!

Great Food & Music
I was in the area for the weekend and found Taste on the internet and decided to give it a try. The food was great especially the collard green rolls. Drinks were good not watered down. The ambience is causual/upscale jazz club. The musicians were great singing all of my favorite R&B slow groves from the Isley Brothers- Jill Scott. We had a great time. My only issue was they did not have mashed potatoes which I think to run out of mashed potatoes an hour into the dinner hours is odd. They made a substitution of sweet potatoes without asking me but it worked out. They could do with a quick lesson in customer service but they were all pleasent and I would reccommend this restaurant.
