    My “house” margarita was disappointing. It was a bit too strong and not sweet enough. I drank it anyway because I felt bad to send it back.

    We were seated immediately and greeted by our waiter within minutes. We received a free appetizer of Mac and cheese that was delicious! There were 4 of us in our party and we each ordered something different. I had the salmon, which was delicious. There was also a salad, a pan roasted chicken breast and steak dish. All of us really enjoyed our food and we also had dessert. The key lime pie and ‘s’mores desserts were very good as well. I will definitely return to this restaurant and I do recommend it.

    Surprisingly pleasing place. The area by the bar is nicer than the other side which is more drab. Small outdoor area with not much atmosphere- you're just out there. Food very good but hopefully the length it took to prepare and reach our table on a practically empty restaurant has been corrected. Attentive manager aware of the problem who did her upmost to accommodate.

    Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your last experience here. Here at Taste we strive to improve ourselves everyday. Seeing a 1 star review and reading a 45 min wait on a Sunday for a table is quite alarming. Would you be able to help me improve the quality of service by giving me a few more details on what happened? Looking forward to hearing back and thank you for taking the time to read this. Feel free to reach out anytime. Best, Andres@ilovetaste.co m | 310.459.9808

    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.
    Taste at the PalisadesResponded on November 15, 2019
    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.

    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.

    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.
