1pm lunch reservations for mother’s day.
Wait 7mins at the hostess stand before anybody bothered to check us in.

Seated outside. Waited 12mins before a waiter walked to table. This is after the manager sat us and said let me get a waiter to set the table.

Waiter took our drink order and never returned. Another 10mins another staff comes to table and says I’ll be your new server.

Original waiter walks over and says I see you’ve got your drinks can I take your order. Never told us about the Mother’s Day brunch special. He offered to give us the umbrella at the table next to us when the table next to us left because it was very hot and they had 3 umbrella for 8 tables outside.

Food was served. Table with umbrella people left. Waiter seats new people at the table with the umbrella. We finish meal waiter comes snd forgets his offer.

Manager comes to table gives mom a $10 coupon. Comp drinks. That was nice.

The waiter was the problem. So many times they just don’t pay attention to detail. Maybe that’s why they are waiters.

We had a lovely experience for Easter brunch at Taste. It was nice to have a selection of entrees from which to choose, together with the several shared starters and yummy dessert bar.

If we are in town, it's an Easter tradition to go to Taste for their Easter brunch. The food is delicious, the service great and it's very festive.

In a little shopping area with goats in the hills behind! Very nice room and also had some outside seating that overlooked a parking lot. Food was very good, but pricey. Service was awfully slow and we noticed the waiter didn't write anything down, so kept coming back to check on what we ordered. We had to remind the waiter we never received one of the appetizers.

We enjoy Taste once or twice a month. My wife likes their Impossible burger which she has finally learned to order cooked to medium. Our only disappointment was that the reservation indicated we were celebrating her birthday but there was never any mention of it by the restaurant, which was a first for our birthday celebrations there. :(

We had a truly wonderful dining experience at Taste. They have a great menu. We started with the amazing super food salad, then our entrees were the grilled skirt steak and the caramelized cumin spiced pork chop. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the flavors, including the sides, were so delicious! We had gelato for dessert. The service was fantastic. We highly recommend Taste, and will be returning soon.

You can always count on good service and good food at Taste. Mushroom pizzetta was delicious. You can linger awhile, they don't rush you either. Parking is easy. Patio is perfect on a warm sunny day.

We’ve been coming to Taste on a regular basis now for about 7 months, almost weekly and frankly we’ve seen the service (wait staff) attention to us and other customers go downhill.

Waiting to be served initially upon being seated, long wait

Waiting for check upon asking for it

Waiting for check to be picked up once dropped off

This visit was exceptionally not as good as prior, but the last two were also a challenge getting what we needed from the wait staff.

We’ll still be back and hope things will improve

We love the food so hopefully we don’t have to sacrifice proper and good service just for great food.

I had salmon salad. Salad was so so.
Salmon was strange. Kind of soft and tasteless.
Would not have it again. My wife liked the veggie burger.
My French fries were over cooked. Like eating string potato chips.

We were disappointed. The server was very friendly at first but then disappeared for more than 20 minutes when all we had was water. They got better after that, except they brought the wrong entrée for my husband. To their credit, they had a satisfactory remedy — corrected it, offered him a salad while we wait and comped that dish. Still, nothing gives me a reason to go back.

Love the smoked salmon pizza and aperol spritzer cocktail, plus good wines.
Brussel sprouts are good too. Great waiters most of the time. Wonder why the food varies a bit from time to time. Are there different chefs or just variations by a few? Sometimes my favorite dishes are fantastic, and once in while just ok. Regardless, love you Taste.

Awesome! The potato soup (more like vegetable soup with potato, not a creamy potato soup) was delicious as was the Super Food Salad with Shrimp. There were more shrimp than I expected and they were very tasty. On the prix fix menu, which is what I usually order, you can get a glass of house wine at a discounted price as well as desert. This makes it a very affordable dinner for frequent dining by someone in the neighborhood. For desert, I always love the Key Lime Pie. The servers are attentive, as servers should be, but you don't always see.

Food was very good as usual. Prix fixe menu has some good options. Happy hour ends at 6:00 p.m., which provides discounts on wine and beer, and I believe some small plates. They also did a very nice job with the remodel last year. The bar is a good place to hang out for a drink and watch a game on the TV.
