Made reservation and restaurant made us wait and stated that we didn’t have reservations on Open Table. I had made it and showed it he reservation which she had to honor grudgingly. She walked away and came back and stated that they had no tables and told us to sit outside and they would find a table when one opened up, but that never happened. We froze eating outside with one of the slowest services. Food is ok but cold as we were eating outside at 55 degree weather. Service and food continues to decline.

We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Taste. The food was delicious and the service was great! We highly recommend Taste

There is a very talkative female server who takes ten times as long to get an order in - by the time she finally came over to take my order (25 minutes after I arrived and sat down), I was already ready to go. I don’t know why she’s even there - it’s so irritating every time she is my server because she doesn’t take your order for an inordinately long time.

Radically under-staffed. Service was awful and the mistakes continued after speaking with the manager. Hope they pull it together soon.

poor service, waited a very, very long time for food; which was merely adequate

The food was good, not great. Didn't like the hamburger bun. The hamburger was very good. The service was not very good. I asked 3 times for a clean knife because I had dropped mine on the floor. One of my dining companions picked one off another table. No one ever brought one to me.

This was our first time dining at Taste Palisades since the remodel. The relocation of the bar and the bar seating is great and the whole new seating arrangement works well. The Kobe beef burgers but they were delicious.

The staff was so friendly and accommodating. When the waitress was busy, someone else helped out. Easy access for walkers and wheelchairs. This is a plus if someone in your party is handicapped. Prices are reasonable. Food fresh and delicious. Would go more often, but a long drive from my house.

Taste is a hidden gem in an unlikely location: a strip mall in Pacific Palisades. The ambience is modern and clean, the service attentive and friendly, and the food is fresh, healthy, and delicious

Delicious chicken salad sandwich although a good bit smaller than it used to be. Overall very good but front desk is always slow to seat, even when restaurant is not overly crowded. Despite that it is a neighborhood favorite and consistently good.

One of my favorite restaurants in Palisades, but their Thanksgiving meal totally sucked...

Sercvice is horribly slow. Wait staff doesn’t seem to care. Waited over 10 minutes before we saw a waiter. Waited another 20 minutes for coffee and then had to ask again. Coffee finally delivered by busboy waited another 20 minutes for food after having to ask when it would arrive. Never going back.

Excellent food and service at a reasonable price. The outdoor patio was on the edge of the parking lot, but it was fairly quiet, and it was nice to be out in the fresh air. I highly recommend that you give Taste at the Palisades a try+

The ambiance was nice and looked promising. I didn't rate the food that high because, although it tasted really good, it was very skimpy on the key ingredients. My husband had chicken tortilla soup with 3 small pieces of chicken. I had the seafood linguini with 3 shrimp and 3 small bites of salmon. 3 seems to be the word for the night. Pasta does not cost that much to make so they could have easily given you a larger bowl. For the price, I felt they were very chinsy on the portions. The wine was good and we were happy that we were not that hungry. They should up their game.

Love Taste! The iron skillet chicken is amazing. Salmon over spaghetti squash is fantastic. The bread is served warm with a hummus dip. Delicious. I could go on but I'll just say we always enjoy our meals at Taste.

Blackened salmon salad was very good -- fish seasoned and cooked perfectly. Service was great, and the scene was local, pleasant and nice for low key or slightly amped up special occasion. Definitely will be back.

We had a nice time at Taste. The host was friendly and the waiter was as well. It took a while to get a drink at the beginning. Otherwise it was great. :)

This is the second time I have eaten at this restaurant and the service hasn't improved. I was disappointed that we waited so long for everything. And it wasn't even busy. There was five of us and then a table of two next to us. That was all that was in the restaurant. They do have seating outside and I think there were a few tables that had people dining but seriously? I doubt I will go back again. It's just too slow for my tastes. (no pun intended)

I'm always amazed with the consistent delicious food. The salmon, pork chops, and banana bread pudding never disappoint. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and attentive, some more so than others: we liked or waitress (Mary) last time more than this time; the waiter didn't even introduce himself so we don't know his name.

My husband and I came with our 3.5 month old daughter for dinner and the hostess was nice enough to place us where there was space for us to park our stroller next to us. The ambiance was friendly as my husband and I had to take turns walking our daughter around outside and people just loved seeing her. We've been here for lunch before, and dinner was just as good an experience.
We plan on coming back again.

Disappointed in the blackened salmon tacos-too greasy and just a minuscule amount of salmon! Not up to Taste's usual high standards!!!
