    This was our first experience at A Foreign Taste, for Mothers' Day brunch. We were beyond impressed with our experience. The atmosphere is inviting and clean. The employees were very friendly, and our server, Peyton, was terrific! We were surprised at the reasonable pricing. Our meals were fabulous - so flavorful! Highly recommended! We are already planning to return, and we are looking forward to trying dinner, as well.

    What unique and awesome experience for a date night. We decided to do the Chef’s Tasting menu with the reserve wine pairing. The food was amazing with great combinations of flavor and surprise. The wait staff was attentive and accommodating. The wines were paired beautifully with the meal. We will caution that it may be a bit on the pricey side but a great experience and a nice way to treat your significant other and yourself. GREAT JOB CHEF AND STAFF!! We will be back..

    Went for brunch for first visit - ambiance was great and the service was fantastic, but the food. Hmmm... First we had the mimosa flight (great and reasonably priced), then we had a pleasant surprise when waitress brought out complimentary cinnamon rolls. But they were burnt, and hard to bite into. Then received our order - the "breakfast sausage patties" tasted like black licorice and were inedible. Overzealous use of fennel, and no salt. The eggs over easy were good, and the crispy potato thing was definitely crispy (they called it something other than "thing," but I forget what). The "stuffed french toast" was more like brioche with some stuff spread on top. Hard to mess up french toast, but... achievement reached. Hate to leave a bad review, so we may try for dinner sometime. Was initially so excited to learn of a nice brunch spot so nearby, but likely won't return for that. Wah wahhh...sadhorn.
    A Foreign TasteResponded on March 10, 2024
    Thank you for the feedback! We're pleased you enjoyed the ambiance and service. RE the flavors of the house made sausage, we're disappointed we fell short of your expectations here, as it's usually a crowd favorite for our guests. The "Stuffed French Toast" is made with scratch-made brioche bread and is plated in a deconstructed, layered presentation. Nevertheless, we appreciate the feedback and will work to rename it for clarification. As a gesture of goodwill, we'd like to send a $50 e-gift card via email. We really hope you'll consider giving our brunch another chance, or even for dinner, where we can demonstrate our memorable dining experiences. Thank you! - Noelle

    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.

    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.
