Our server Jay was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was quite good and the drinks came out in a timely manner. Good local spot.

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

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.

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.
