From the time we walked in it took 15 minutes to get a waiter to come to our table. That was after we stood up and ask somebody if we had a waiter. From the time the waiter took our order it took an additional 14 minutes to get the two glasses of wine we ordered. We again waved a waiter down and asked him to check on our wine order.First time that has ever happened to us at Taste. The manager was very apologetic. He gave us a $20 gift card and told us he would comp us one of our three glasses of wine. I looked at our receipt when we arrived home and you guessed it, he did not comp us for any wine.

Lenny, Thank you for taking the time to reach out and I apologize for any misunderstanding but I did comp all the wine. The travel zoo coupon you came with says 2 cocktails up to $14 are included. The 2 glasses of Justin were $32 and the Martin Ray which was $12, all of which were not charged. What we did charge were the taxes which is stated in the travel zoo voucher. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out. Again, I do hope to see you back soon. Andres | 310.459.9808

The eggs Benedict was delicious! Apparently it doesn’t come with bernaise sauce unless you request. And the potatoes were scrumptious!

We went to celebrate our friends one year anniversary. When our server found out what we were celebrating he gave our friends a voucher for their next meal. Taste of the Palisades is very welcoming with tasty food!

Although the restaurant was about half empty, service was lacking and inattentive. We had to ask multiple times for ordered items. The food was mediocre - eggs over cooked another dish cold. Convenient to the Getty Villa but not worth it.

Meet some work colleagues on patio - mild evening but there were balnkets and heaters just in case it got cool. Service was breezy and lighthearted. Food yummy.

Go here for an Aperol spritzer and the smoked salmon pizza. Other things are good too like the chicken pailliard and many types of pasta. The bar tables are the most fun. The service can be uneven but is usually better than most and personal. I miss the last manager who was so great.

I had a lovely brunch with my friend. I asked for a vegetarian adaptation of the breakfast Panini and it worked out well with mushrooms instead of bacon. Interior was cool and quiet and the service attentive but not invasive. Pretty nice coffee too.

Tremendous service. Salmon was initially over-cooked but was replaced quickly, cooked to perfection. Both the salmon and a desert were supplied at no charge for our inconvenience. Excellent customer service will have us retuning soon.

If you order the salmon, specify well done or it will be raw. The chef must have trouble with English, because no matter how often we order our way, it always comes to the table his way. Service is always slow, no matter whether you are the only customer, or they are full. Otherwise, no better nor worse than any other local watering hole.

During our previous visit we encountered some issues due to a shortage in the waiter/waitress staff. That now appears to have been corrected. We were assisted by a lovely new waitress who was competent and attentive. The food was typically tasty so it was nice to see our favorite restaurant back on track.

Called to change our reservation and was put on hold for 15mins. The host never returned to resume the call. I ordered decaf coffee and it took another 30 minutes for decaf coffee to come to my table. They said they were just about to start brewing decaf. The restaurant was already open for over an hour. Our waiter was horrible.

Always a pleasure. Love the Salmon salad. We sit at the bar and watch the Dodger games.
Eric is a really good and friendly bar tender. This is our favorite Palisades restaurant.

The food was mediocre and service was terrible. The server brought food for one of us and seemed to forget the other person’s order. We had to point it out to two servers and finally 15 mins later , the second party was served. While they did provide a complimentary dessert to compensate, it was extremely awkward. Food was bland and I would not return.

My wife and I were looking for a place near the beach, but did not want to have to fight crowds and noise at the restaurants right on PCH so decided to try Taste at the Palisades. We were very pleased with our decision and had an excellent meal. Our waiter, Justin, understood and responded to our request for an unhurried evening, and spaced our drinks and meal out just as we wished. The dinner was excellent: we shared the beets and burrata appetizer, then my wife had oven-roasted chicken while I had the skirt steak. Both were prepared perfectly and were clearly fresh from the kitchen when they arrived. The wine list has some very nice selections, and we will go back to try other menu items. The weather was pleasant so we sat outside, which means being close to the parking lot, but it is a quiet shopping area in the evening, and there was no disruption. All together it was a delightful experience.

The worst service ever. Andre knows all the issues and was very accommodating But we will not return for a while and our friends said they won’t ever go again.
The wait staff must be better trained or should I say trained period. Nothing was done properly. I was disappointed and frustrated because this is not the Taste where I am used to dining. I don’t think your restaurant will survive unless major changes are made as there is too much competition in the Palisades now.
A friend ate breakfast there on Saturday and had similar issues: lousy service and her food was bad. She sent it back and it took 29-25 minutes to get her egg dish!! This is not acceptable nor professional. She will not return even tho she lives in the Highlands.
