Taste 222 is a restaurant and event space focusing on unique experiences with an upscale vibe. We are a full-service restaurant with rich beverage and culinary offerings set in a beautiful space reminiscent of home.
We provide “Cheers”- like service. We know our customers’ names, their orders...we HUG! With a family-like atmosphere, Taste 222 provides great service, and delicious, comforting food in a warm and sophisticated environment.
I took my wife there for the first time and she loved it. We ordered the ancho chile glazed salmon, lamb loin chops, mac & cheese, brussel sprouts, and broccoli & cheese soup and loved all of the dishes. The ambiance was great and it was easy to find parking as well. We will be coming back to this restaurant!
Really great decor and service. Had the ribs on two occasions and both times they were dry and skimpy on the meat. Will not order ribs again. Side dishes (mac & cheese, corn bread, brussels) were just ok. The lamb was good but pricey. Loved the Boss (non-alcoholic) drink and the chocolate caramel cake.
Way over priced. Slow for a lunch spot. Nothing stands out about food.
Beautiful space. Like the variety of table settings and spaces available. Food was wonderful, fresh and nicely presented. The poke bowl and salmon Niçoise salad were delightfully tasty.
Special Creole menu for Mardi Gras. Pricey with very small portions.
2 large shrimp on a plate for $15????
Gumbo, was okay. Not great, just okay!
Great food wad delicious drinks on point. Will be back
Taste 222 is always great. I was a tad bit disappointed with the taste of some of food items for Fat Tuesday.
Outstanding restaurant. A true gem!!!
Very good food.
It was a Friday night. We were expecting 6 and a couple backed out making it 4. The restaurant gave a little attitude because they made a table for more then what we had. We sat down and from that moment we didn’t even get our food until about 2 hours in. It seemed like they only had 2-3 working the kitchen for a full restaurant on a Friday night. Our waiter seemed to be pushing wine on us that was marked up 400% on the bottle..a little extreme I’d say. We ended up spending over 3 hours in the restaurant basically waiting on food. Ended up spending about $400 on a bottle of wine for the table and 4 meals off the restaurant week “special” with tax and tip. For what the experience was worth I wouldn’t go back.
I would recommend for the food but not for the service.
We went for restaurant week and our group pretty much tried everything. It was fantastic! I love my steak medium rare and they cooked it so well. My boyfriend got the lamb and he said it was some of the best lamb he's had. They have fun cocktails and a decent wine list. It's a very small place so it would be great for a romantic dinner or happy hour with a couple of girlfriends. Definitely want to go back!
Unimpressed. Food presentation was beautiful, but was either flavorless or over-sauced/trying too hard. Entrees were overcooked. Felt like a suburban (lesser quality) restaurant in the city. Won’t go back.
Food was good I had turkey panini and my friend had kale salad with salmon. Very good. Went for lunch.
Service was good - pet peeve of mine though at restaurants don’t automatically split a bill. I love my friends but I don’t want or need to pay for their food and drinks. If you’re going to split the bill. Put food and drinks on the appropriate checks.
Do not automatically just split evenly. It’s annoying.
Solution is me asking for separate checks which industry seems to have a problem with But customers first! 😀
Dinner was amazing!!! Service was unreal and the space is super cool! Will be back again!!
Enjoyed my overall experience at Taste 222 and will definitely be back! My only issue is the seating. My groups was placed at a round table for 5 ppl but the seats were not comfortable and conducive for older patrons. This won’t keep me away but will definitely have to consider the group if the seating does not change.
Great atmosphere in the front room. Our server, Rashid was gracious and attentive.
Horrible service, incorrect orders, very slow.
We were looking forward to trying a new restaurant during restaurant week. After a fairly long wait, the Filet mignon were served cold. The butter that was on on wasn't melted at all. We would have brought it to our waiter's attention when served but we couldn't find him so we ate the cold meat.
Further, my wife ordered another glass of wine during the first course. It finally came after we were served dessert. I let her drink my wine.
The manager graciously said they wouldn't charge us for the wine we didn't drink. And we received a slight discount for the poor food. I recommend they invest in some warming lamps.,,,and bring ordered drinks a little sooner. We were about six feet from the bar. I almost got up to ask the bartender.
The food was phenomenal!!!
The service was awful.
Slow and no acknowledgement that the service was bad.
Want to go back but hesitate.
The food was excellent and the ambience also pleasing. The problem was with the speed with which the food was brought. We felt as they we were being unnecessarily hurried through our meals
I went with a friend for lunch and the service was incredible. We were quickly seated and our food arrived soon after. We both ordered the grilled cheese with fries with the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. The dessert was amazing and the toffee sauce is probably one of my favorites. Overall it was a great experience.
This was a pleasant surprise! I relocated here from Tennessee and this was a gem!
Amazing food and service wish there wasn’t televisions in one of the dining rooms takes away from the beautiful ambience
Great presentation, prices were great and great service to match!
Fantastic personal service with a cool atmosphere
Food was yummy and everyone was very service minded.
This restaurant was top quality. From the special cocktails to dessert, and everything in between, the food was fantastic. Fresh, unique, creative, tasty, and well -presented. I had made a reservation on OpenTable and mentioned it was my husband's birthday and asked them to put a candle in the dessert, but they did not. The service in general was not as high quality as the food. We had to ask what the soup of the day was, rather than him volunteering it, and coffee did not come out with our dessert. He was very pleasant and nice though. Overall the food was so outstanding we were willing to overlook the service. Would definitely return!
I was only there for drinks but while there the experience was great.
Reservation accepted and then canceled upon arrival. We sat at the bar for our entire function (2.5 hours) all while 5 tables sat empty the entire time. Drinks were phenomenal; confounding decision to deny us a seat after confirming the reservation will keep me from returning.
Holiday lunch with team. Holiday decorations were beautiful and the food was great!
The service is great! Vine selection doesn't follow. The general atmosphere is very nice and people working there are awesome.
Love this restaurant, good food, interesting menu & service. Convenient location.
Great dining experience in a quiet restaurant that focuses on quality. The service and food are amazing.
While I haven't tried dinner, I eat lunch here pretty regularly, and the food is excellent. The service is great. They also have happy hour specials that are fantastic. Highly recommend.
Our dinner was, as always, delicious! The shaved brussel sprouts were really light and nutritious! Another reason to ❤ sprouts! Also had the small plate ribs! The perfect portion. Slightly spicy sauce! Tender and scrumptious! Sharing small plates helps to leave room for dessert. We had the key lime pie and the chocolate caramel cake! And really, really great coffee! A wonderful Date Night dining experience!!
A gem in the city. Not sure why this place hasn’t generated more buzz. We have now eaten most of the menu and still can’t find anything we don’t like. Food is delicious. Ambience is great. You can hear the person across from you. One of our favorite spots.
Beautiful space and the food was outstanding. Service was only fair - perhaps an off night, but we didn't get all that we ordered, table was not cleared of dirty dishes, hardly ever came to table at all. But, we would go back for sure!
Very distinct ambience between front room (quiet semi-formal) and back room (sports bar). Know what you're in for...
Great staff who pay attention to their customers. Have been there at least 6-7 times in the past year.
