A word from Taste Restaurant - Plymouth
Taste, Amador County's highly acclaimed restaurant is located on Main St. in Plymouth. Taste features a seasonal menu, expansive beer selection and Wine Spectator Award winning wine list that represents the foothills and regions from around the globe. The dinner menu features our popular Mushroom Cigars, three types of mushrooms, goat cheese and herbs rolled in a buttery phyllo dough and baked until golden. Our melt in your mouth steaks and fresh seafood are accompanied by local produce. The house made desserts are seasonally driven and offer creative twists on classics. "The three blocks that put the "down" in downtown Plymouth are an improbable location for a restaurant with a loud foodie drumbeat. Taste is small and comforting, its food a cure for the blahs." Sacramento Magazine. “With its urbane atmosphere and first-rate service, …provides a polished food-and-wine experience that would be right at home in a big city.” Wine Spectator Zagat Rated Top Restaurants in America 2012

    Met a friend I had not seen in about 10 years and she said she was a food snob. So Taste was the choice to fit her needs. She is from NYC and she loved it. Was able to show her that even though we are small town we have wonderful places to dine in the country. Thanks you for the wonderful afternoon.

    Officially the reason I booked dinner for two at Taste was to celebrate my partner's birthday. The truth is, I saw online that Guinea Hen offered on the menu. I used to raise Guinea Fowl, so I know how delicious it is. I haven't seen it offered on a menu in years. Taste's presentation and preparation of roast Guinea Hen was fabulous. My partner was equally pleased with the Duck he ordered. The wine offerings at Taste are also a big draw for us. I like trying flights and Taste offered three to choose from, plus wine on tap which I think is a great idea. Taste is a bit $pricey$ for us, so we don't dine there very often, saving it for special occasions.

    We found Taste quite by accident while looking for a hotel in the gold country of California. It is an exceptional restaurant in an out-of-the-way area, so especially welcome. In addition to outstanding food, we received excellent service, particularly with respect to wine choices. I wish we lived closer--we'd be back regularly. So if anyone is planning a trip to (or lives in) this interesting and quirky region of California, make a reservation!

    If you are visiting the Amador County wineries this spot would be perfect for a weekend lunch or dinner. Very well stocked Wine Bar for this destination restaurant. It is a fine dining place without pretensions. I started with a small plate, Lettuce Cups (root beer braised pork belly, almonds, herbs, pickled vegetables surrounded by butter lettuce). This was amazing but just a sample of what Taste offers its patrons.

    Amador County vineyards struggle for water, and the local food scene struggles for respect. Taste Restaurant can't do much about the water (you have to ask for it to be served). But as for the food, they 'bring it' -- with aplomb. In two visits, we have had awesome salads, steak, rabbit, cheese, and great local wines. Think international fusion with a local farm-to-table flare. To mis-quote our prior discredited governor, "we'll be back!"

    Absolutely the best dining experience ever! The food was exquisite, the service outstanding, and the wine list incredible. What a hidden gem. This place was recommended by the Limoclub, and I can't thank them enough. What a wonderful find in the beautiful Amador County wine country. The rack of lamb and the sea scallops were fabulous as were the mushroom cigars. If you're looking for a dining experience you will never forget, this is the place. Highly recommend you treat yourself to this unforgettable dining experience.

    The food was wonderful, but it took so long to get to us and when it did it was not hot. I am not sure what was going on in the kitchen or if it was an issue with the service staff. The restaurant was not really crowded so I am not sure. They did not even apologize for the wait so maybe this is normal. I am not sure I would come back due to the really slow service.

    Cheese plate was outstanding, as were the filet mignon and swordfish dinners. Pork loin dinner was well prepared but was a little dry and could have perhaps used a covering sauce or something to keep it moist. Triple chocolate dessert was delicious but the brownie was not moist enough. Staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. Service was excellent except for one serious mistake -- the significant uneaten portions of the filet mignon and pork plates and left over cheese plate were taken away to be boxed for take-home, our dinner the next day. However, they were never returned to us despite our lingering at the table for a time as we enjoyed dessert and coffee. We sorely missed having the wonderful left overs the next day!

    The service is incredible. Food was excellent. Menu options are pricey, but you're paying additional for the service, and for the chef's creativity. Wines are available from the many local wineries. Produce is local and fresh, and meat / fish are all identified as to their source.

    Should disclaim they do their version of classic dishes. The food was good, but not what was expected. We ordered carrot cake for dessert and received some art house Andy Warhol interpretation. Some type of disclaimer on the menu would have saved the major let down. Main dish was cooked well, just not presented in traditional form. I get the "fancy" and artistic approach to food and can appreciate it, but some warning was needed.

    Our wonderful meal started with two excellent appetizers, the Taste signature mushroom cigars and a unique tomato salad. Our entrees of filet mignon and swordfish were perfectly cooked, beautifully prepared, and both were generous portions. As usual, all staff members were attentive and full of information about everything on the menu. Kudos to Thomas for a great wine recommendation as well. Oh, and don't skip dessert, especially the chocolate x3!

    Taste is an incredible restaurant in the heart of the gold country not to be missed. From the outside you would never know what waits for you behind the doors. The waiters know the menu by heart and can describe every item on the menu perfectly. They are experts in the food and wine pairing. All of the waiters work like a championship team does. Just about everything on the menu can be split for sharing. This is a great place for special occasions. If you are ever in the gold country do not miss it!

    I have had dinner at the Volcano Location and was truly amazed at the quality of the food and service but the Taste was a off the charts experience. The quality and variety if the food is something you would see in New York, Chicago or San Francisco not Plymouth CA. Some of the items I have had before but never the same quality or presentation. I am looking forward to our next dinner there.
