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 2012Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This was our second time here and once again it was amazing!! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Definitely worth it."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "After hearing and reading all the great reviews for Taste, we went for our anniversary. It was a Friday night; reservations at 6 pm. The atmosphere was casual. The waiter was attentive without hovering. Food was well prepared and tasty. If you wanted to split a dish, it arrived at the table on separate plates - no messy division at the table = ). Good service and food didn't come cheap. For a shared appetizer, 2 dinners, 2 desserts, and a $15.00 corkage fee to open the wine we brought from home, our bill with tax and 20% tip came to just shy of $200.00. Definitely, a do over for a very special occasion."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Host is responsive to request posted at time of reservation. Warm greeting. Knowledgable wait staff. Friendly and enthusiastic about patron being satisfied. Food is wonderful - savory with pleasing presentation. Must return often. I owe it to myself!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Taste remains one of the best restaurants in California. Both the food and service are excellent. It is a great dining spot to end a day in the Amador/Fair Play wine country."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Have been here for dinner and lunch. Food is beyond outstanding not just for me but for everyone in the party. Service is great and not intrusive. Waiters are knowledgable about the food and wine. Owner has been by to greet us each time we have been there. Wine was wonderful. Can't afford it every month but for special occasions, this is the place to go. Small, comfortable, and cozy. Well worth the one hour drive to get there. Have recommended it to everyone we know."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Food was truly outstanding. We did the Monday night fixed price menu and it was worth every dollar. We would come back here as soon as we got the opportunity. The service on the three course menu was very efficient. The only thing we would suggest to the restaurant is that if they have large groups of diners in the back room they should try and seat smaller groups upfront because the noise level in the back room is not good. We were in the back and noticed several openings in the front room which would have been more pleasant for our party of four. We still would come back because the food is awesome."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary at Taste on\ Monday night. We were joined by three other couples; all enjoyed their meal very much."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We went to Taste again for an anniversary dinner. It was a great experience again. The food was very good, all fresh ingredients and interesting combination. The wait staff was very good, always there when we needed them. All together it was great!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "All around, VERY EXCELLENT!! We accidently met friends there and the staff accommodated our request to suddenly sit together...was wonderful..."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We split the savory duck cheesecake, pork belly lettuce cups, gnocchi and gyro. First three were excellent, gyro was good, but did not compare to the other dishes. Gnocchi was the best. They have a big variety, even tamales on the day we went. This place can hang with any Sacramento restaurant, and you can go in flip flops and shorts. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Taste Restaurant in Plymouth is a great restaurant. We live over an hour away and find excuses to go there. The menu changes seasonally and all of the plates have been terrific and interesting. The service is outstanding as well. This has become my favorite restaurant!!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Mentioned it was my wife's birthday and they gave her a card that all the staff had signed. Nice personal touch. Excellent food, of course the mushroom cigars were as good as everyone raves. Great table service. Got a little hot at one point but the AC kicked on and leveled it off."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food is fabulous! The service is excellent! Just everything about Taste is outstanding!!! If available, you must try the strawberry shortcake. It is 'deconstructed' and every taste is a real treat!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We were greeted at the door with the manager stating "my boss made me open the restaurant today". It was the 4th of July. That made us feel really welcome??? I felt rushed and hurried throughout the whole meal; the noise lever was very high, mostly coming from the manager, our waiter and the other servers. Nice presentation of entree."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We have had the pleasure of dinning at this restaurant many times, It has never been less than very good. This luncheon was over the top. The service was especially attentive. We will be back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Excellent staff, great wine, fantastic food. A great find and well worth the short drive from Sacramento."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I had heard of Taste since moving to the Foothills but Thursday night was our first visit. I wish we hadn't waited so long. The food was outstanding. My husband had the pork tenderloin and it was served with a cluster of radicchio wrapped in prosciutto. I had the duck confit, it was served with pain perdu and fresh strawberries. Each dish was perfectly prepared and not a morsel was left on either plate. the service was also excellent, we were greeted by the manager Sergio and when we commented on our interest in wine, Thomas, a level 2 Sommelier, came to our table to chat with us. We plan to return soon."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "This restaurant was recommended to us by the B&B we were staying in. There is not very much in the sleepy town of Plymouth except the wineries and this restaurant. A real gem. We will definitely return when next in the area."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "This is a foodie's dream. Our server, Gary, was as gracious and knowledgeable as he was during our last visit. Don't miss the mushroom cigars, and take advantage of any new items on the menu. You would never know Plymouth had a place this nice. The town seems too small to support it. But I hope word spreads to nearby areas. It is a must try for special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries. They have a great wine list."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The service from our favorite waitress - Debbie - was great. She is a delightful person and always takes good care of us. Jim Johnson"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We have celebrated many special occasions here (birthdays, anniversaries) and have always left pleased. We are vegetarians (nearly 40 years now) and only eat eggs and dairy when away from home. Taste has a vegetarian menu which is especially nice since most restaurants have only one or two options or they can leave meat and meat broth out to make a dish vegetarian. We enjoy eating at home so dinner out is usually an occasion. The drive from Sacramento to Plymouth is always a drive worth making to dine at Taste. Sometimes the rooms are a little noisy if there are larger groups but you can still hold a quiet conversation without difficulty."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "As good as the food was (and it was excellent), the service was even better. We will be back. Thanks for the experience."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Five of us enjoyed a marvelous lunch Saturday. One had ham and egg, which came with a poached egg perched atop wild greens, a crostini and surrounded by Black Forest ham, two had gnocchi, which both raved about and two of us had the housemade pasta, which had wonderful salmon bits and fresh asparagus in a light cream sauce. Come to think of it, all our dishes came with asparagus in some form and our waitress pointed out that a great deal of what we were eating was locally grown--even the egg had been laid by a backyard chicken! The dessert which all of us chose topped off a lovely mid-day respite. It was Blueberry Crisp, a new item on their menu. The two scoops of gelato were outstanding, better than that I had in San Diego's Little Italy."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Wonderful food, great service and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 10/10/2013
  • "My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Taste restaurant recently. It was certainly worth the drive. Though it's a little out of the way, we definitely will return. Staff is friendly, food is fabulous. My husband had steak, and I had a vegetarian pasta. We topped off dinner with the blueberry crisp dessert. It was indescribably delicious! Special thanks goes to our daughter for the gift certificate to Taste! It was a great choice!!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Fantastic food paired with a wonderful staff made for a culinary treat."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "After an afternoon of sipping Amador wines, this was a great place to come celebrate our wedding anniversary. The meals were faultless, the service was attentive without being overbearing, the personal touches were charming. It was a Friday night and there was a large table of winery/vineyard folks next to us so it got pretty noisy, but it was a joyous time for them, too. The outstanding feature here is (as it should be) the food; impeccably prepared and presented, delicious and appealing to every sense. Fairly $$$$ but worth it...and worth the drive."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Almost in the middle of nowhere is this food lovers gem. Amador County has a wealth of vineyards and wonderful wine tasting, but when it's time for dinner, checkout Taste. An eclectic and ever changing menu. A great wine selection, as well as a great bar. Friendly and competent wait staff. This is a place you will be telling others about. Cheers!"
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Once the restaurant got busy, our waiter stopped taking care of our table. He stopped coming to fill out our water and wine glasses, we had to wait for our dessert for 25 minutes, he did not ask of we wanted coffee with our dessert ,like he did with other tables, and he did not clear the dirty glasses and wine bottle from our table. He only stopped once to let us know that our dessert would be shortly with us, but it took 25 minutes to get it. I don't know if they were missing staff the night that we went to dinner, but based on the service we got I would not recommend this restaurant to anybody."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Taste has been our very special dining destination for a few years now. Whether we are there for lunch or dinner and regardless of the season, we've always been impressed (and that takes some skill for these picky eaters). It's hard to believe that this gem is located in such a small, out of the way town (Plymouth) in Amador County. I recommend that you make reservations with OpenTable, enjoy some excellent local wine tasting and hurry back to Taste for a truly wonderful dining experience with exceptional service (ask for Michael and Gloria)."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We have been to Taste several times and Sunday's experience did not disappoint. It is the perfect spot to dine after an afternoon of wine tasting. The ambience is of rustic sophistication. The service was excellent, as always. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the pork loin. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. I strongly recommend making a reservation because this restaurant fills up fast. It is definitely one if the best in the greater Sacramento area and always worth the drive."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Fab, Fab, FAB -- this is going to be our new go to for special occasions. Definitely worth the drive from Sacramento."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I wanted to take my husband somewhere Very special for Father's Day and Taste definitely fit the bill!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Don't miss the mushroom cigars. Service was wonderful. It was a special occasion for us and they treated us wonderfully!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had 3 small plates and 1 large plate, which the kitchen split into 2 small plates. The food was outstanding - on par with the best in the region. We brought a 22 year old bottle of wine which the server graciously decanted for us. All around a great time with a wonderful server."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Super regular menu but also wonderful options for vegans and vegetarians on separate menus. Thank you, thank you."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Had heard great things about the food, but was still pleasantly surprised by the rich flavors and wonderful service. Will definitely make a trip out there again."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "My husband and I flirted with a little online research in an effort to expand our dining horizons and venture a bit further from our usual spots that often left us wanting. We located Taste via Urban Spoon and decided the drive to Plymouth would be a fun Sunday afternoon adventure. It was well worth the drive and we felt the dining experience and the food far exceeded our more common dining experiences in the nicer restaurants in the Sacramento surrounding area. We are excited to know this level of food service and quality is available within a reasonable driving distance of our home."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The menu is quite contemporary and the decor wasn't. I felt like I was in my mom's favorite restaurant. I was nervous when the mushroom cigars fell way short of expectations considering it is one of their notable dishes. They were slathered in a heavy gravy and didn't have much flavor on their own. My steak was under-cooked and everything else was just good, not great. Still had a nice meal, just not what I was expecting after reading the reviews."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "we've been twice and everything has been wonderful. lots of creativity in the kitchen, and lovely service. well worth our 90 mile drive!"
