    Took my wife there for her birthday. She likes that kind of food and I don’t. Small portions served and overpriced.

    My wife and I went to dinner for her birthday and really enjoyed the chef tasting experience paired w/wine. The food was exquisite, artistic and very flavorful! The wine pairing was an added treat to our tastebuds. The staff is very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Memories will be made here! Very happy to have ours.

    We were at A Foreign Taste for NYE and had their 5 course tasting menu with wine parings selected by their Sommelier JT. The food was delicious and the wine pairings were prefect. My husband and I loved it. We highly recommend.

    This was our second New Year’s Eve at A Foreign Taste. The food was excellent which will keep us coming back. We did the wine pairing with our meal and it was great too. The sommelier paired the wine to the food so that it was really enhanced. My only complaint is that we were asked to leave our table so the next people coming in could have it. I wouldn’t have minded this except the other people that came in the same time as us did not have to leave their table. Also there was no time limit listed on the reservation, and we were only there for 1 1/2 hours. Because it was a tasting menu we really couldn’t time out how quickly our food came. All in all it was a great meal and we will come back.

    I really enjoy the unique menu selections at A Foreign Taste. We ordered a wonderful appetizer, and although I cannot remember the name, I certainly remember how delicious it was. The seasonal fish was sea bass and absolutely fabulous. They were generous with the fish portion which was served as a lovely presentation. The wine selection is amazing and service is exceptional. Our experience is deserving of this five star rating.

    Food was very good (did the chef's tasting menu) but all had the same spice blend flavor which at times was too much. Did the premium wine pairing but because of the flavoring in the food the wine did not seem to shine through. Next time would probably order off the main menu.

    We experienced the Chef's Tasting Menu and it was wonderful. Tom took care of us and was so good at explaining about how the food was prepared and why each wine pairing was selected for that course. We had excellent service and the food was exceptional. I highly recommend A Foreign Taste and highly recommend the Chef's 6 Course Tasting Menu.

    I would have to make up something to say a bad thing about my meal. Had a birthday dinner with four people, had two bottles of wine and it was still a fairly reasonable price. Everyone ordered something different and they were all a 10 out of 10. Great people, great restaurant. I would much rather patronize a restaurant and chef at a small restaurant than the larger options. You could tell they really care.

    We had brunch on a Sunday and had a great time. The food was good, although the potato dauphin seemed like it had been fried in the deep fryer (twice). My pancakes were delicious! My sister got the French toast but said it tasted like it had been cooked on the same griddle as the potato dauphin. She ended sharing the waffle my mom got and they raved about it. Overall, it was a good dining experience.
