Nice food and pleasant evening. Arrived before 6:00 PM and had happy hour drinks and appetizers. Great ½ artichoke then the Kobe burgers with special French fries. Enjoyable evening.

Went for lunch. Everything was fine—the food, service and setting. A nice, reliable, everyday place for a good salad or sandwich.

Met a friend for lunch, was greeted warmly, and had a most wonderful server, Jay. Both of us so enjoyed our salads and commended on how tasty they were, along with warm bread and butter, and great service. Was really quite a special time, and Taste continues to please us locals with its service and food selection.

We can rely on Taste to provide good food that is a bit out of the ordinary, with good service. On this occasion, a Wednesday at 7:00, it was very full and noisy. We were a group of six. Our orders were taken and filled in a reasonable amount of time, but when done it took almost 30 minutes to get our bill. Perhaps earlier or later would be better. I actually prefer to go there for lunch.

Our salad had an ingredient in it not mentioned on the menu that we were allergic to so the manager was kind enough to get us a new one without our asking!! She was very kind and helpful as was the waitress!!

Taste is an outstanding neighborhood restaurant. This was a Saturday night so it was very busy. I had been there the previous Monday night so that time it was more quiet and relaxing. Everything I’ve had on the menu has been delicious. We had two birthdays in our group and they made it special.

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.

Unfortunately the service was very poor. We were seated in the bar area(which we requested), so we didn’t expect service like you’re sitting in the dining area. Food was cold, getting first round of drinks(in the bar area) took 40 minutes, they skipped the first round of our pre fixe. bar was not slammed; there was a lot of standing around. Best thing was the food; compliments to the chef for a nice pre fixe experience.

We have been to the location on Melrose a few times and enjoyed it. This was our first time at this location, and we were not disappointed. It was New Year's Eve, and we had a choice of either a special, prix fix menu for the occasion, or the regular menu. We opted for the prix fix menu, and the kitchen really went out of their way to show what they could do!

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.

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.

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.

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.
