Diner Reviews
  • "The food was outstanding and seemed very fresh.. The ambiance and the feel of the restaurant was awesome and out waitress was very nice and attentive."

  • "I am a native Daytonian and, sadly, North Dayton has been on the decline for decades. However, I was pleasantly surprised that there existed a good, "non-chain" restaurant. Taste is an upscale soul-food, southern cuisine experience. I had the Creole Catfish which was well-seasoned, greens, and mac and cheese. The presentation was good and the taste was satisfying. I currently live in the Washington, DC area. So, by comparison, this was not an exceptional experience. But, while in Dayton, I recommend Taste because it is a change from the chain restaurants that have taken over Miller Lane and south of town."

  • "Heard mixed reviews about food and service. Our experience Friday 2/28/14 was memorable! We had a great time. The food was unique and very good. The service was excellent!! There was a band from Cincinatti (NP) playing that was very good. Music was a little louder than vocals but it could of been our placement/seating (we sat behind stage area). The menu prices were (beverages, appetizers, entrees) were very reasonable for the quality of the goods. It was a warm,friendly community environment. There isn't anything like the Taste experience in this community and we welcome it here. We look forward to our next experience and the many more to come!!!"

  • "This is a restaurant in Dayton?! That was my first reaction. What a beautiful place, first of all, with nice little hideaways for a romantic night. They had a jazz trio the night we were there and that was the cherry on top of great service by all (our waitress as well as the bartender and others who brought our drinks directly to our table). And the food. So mouth watering. Nice sized portions, so flavorful and original. We couldn't get enough. We had drinks, appetizers, soup, main course, coffee and dessert -- all for less than what we'd have paid at a chain restaurant. A dining experience to remember. We'll return (often!)."

  • "Great service from the waitress. Food excellent & nice music from the band. The male singer was off key & needed to have someone who could sing especially since it's a holiday Eve celebration. His singing took away from the band."

  • "My wife and I hosted a friend and his wife over the holiday break. It was 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. Clean, sharp, and impressive on the inside. We were the only patrons in the restaurant at that time. Waiter was very professional. It was impressive how he took all of our orders without writing any of it down - but we changed our minds about that when he had to come back and confirm portions of our order. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time; although, my friend that traveled from California and came to the Taste on my recommendation, got his food 10 minutes after us - and didn't like it. My macaroni and cheese was very hard like it was microwaved in the bowl. All waiter offered was more mac & cheese. He seemed indifferent."

  • "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."
