Arrived with a reservation just before the agreed upon time. Had to wait about 10-12 minutes. Arrived up stairs and was provided with an ok table in a half full upper dining area. Wait staff arrived to check on us and forgot to mention anything about the specials (had to ask during his return trip). Menu was pretty limited - a number of dishes were just a variation of another and one fresh fish choice. Cost was just at $100 with no top end dinner choices or appetizers and one mixed drink.

We eat in the area a couple of times every three months or so. Don't know if they will get a second shot.

We all enjoyed our dinner at Flavor very, very much. The entrees were to die for--true comfort food, in large quantities, and beautifully flavored. The chicken and the seafood pot pies were fantabulous--light flaky crust, well seasoned gravy in the pie--nothing too heavy or starchy--with filling of veggies and meat/fish cooked perfectly. The ribeye and a fish special were also excellent. Flavor had a friendly sportsbar atmosphere with great views of Princeton Harbor and a Warriors game playing. Tables were spread out enough that the hearing challenged among us could still enjoy our conversation amid the cheering.
The desserts were okay, but seemed a little dull after the phenomenal entrees. We will definitely return. just for those delectable entrees!

Food was expensive for what it was, but good. Good service and pretty location, but food was a little overpriced for comfort food.

For a seafood dinner that is fresh, tasty and MUCH more than you can hope to finish, "Taste" can't be beat. We had 2 good craft beers, homemade focaccia bread with Balsamic and wonderful olive oil and sautéed spinach with garlic. There are wonderful views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and, in the other direction, green, verdant hills.
For a great meal and a very pleasant experience, try "Taste".

the service was very good but the food was not so much. I ordered the short ribs which were good but the polenta it was displayed on was flavorless and the seafood chowder was luke warm and in need of salt and pepper. I will give high marks to our wait person, she was attentive and delightful, also high marks for the oceano martini, delicious but you want to have a designated driver because they are generous with the alcohol as well.

This restaurant has great views to Princeton Harbor. The seafood pot pie is delicious as is the Calamari. Best to go NOT on a weekend for lower noise level and a table by the window.

We went for dinner the weekend after Christmas, and perhaps they were short staffed, but service was a bit slow to start. However, our server was very pleasant. I wish they would serve a larger closed container of hot water for tea as I had to keep asking for refill of hot water for my tea. All in all, it's a great place with excellent food. We will definitely revisit and bring family/guests.

Three stars for the service...Waiter friendly but just not on the ball. Cocktails took forever and the waiter and bartender spent to much time talking .The service was mediocre, wine was ordered way before entree but arrived halfway through the meal. Was not given a steak knife for my steak. On the plus side, portions good size and flavorful. Seafood Jumbalaya was spicy and plentiful but soupy, and very little rice. The brussel sprouts and the cabbage and bacon were delicious. The desserts, blueberry cheesecake and the lemon tart were just the right size and full of flavor and fresh tasting.

We were in Half Moon Bay for our anniversary. Flavor was next to our hotel, and we wanted an affordable nice dinner to end our weekend. It bills itself as serving "comfort food" so we were intrigued. It was a delightful time. I order the chicken pot pie which was huge and delicious. My wife had half a chicken. Our waitress, Denise, gave a great suggestion from their wine list. All in all, great food, great service and affordable. Loved it.

We found that the food lacked flavor and was greasy. Location was nice but for us it did not seem it would be worth coming again.
