One of my favorite go to places in Cleveland with fantastic service and food. A great wine list and generous pour by the glass. I can not wait to go back!
Only negative is parking on the street is not easy.
Celebrated my mom’s birthday!
Phenomenal food and great service. A violinist came around and played songs while we ate on Valentine’s Dat. An amazing treat. Will be back soon.
I overall loved my experience. Loved the staff. Nice and friendly
Our server was AMAZING! Her suggestions in wine and food was great! Food was good and ambiance was good! I will for sure frequent again for many more occasions!
The food was absolutely incredible! We ate every bite of our meals. Wait staff was very good as well. We will definitely be back again.
Our new “go to “ date night spot. Great food, great service .
We enjoyed a lovely Valentine's weekend dinner at Taste. The tables were reasonably well spaced. The food was delicious, although the service was quite slow that evening. However, we were kept entertained by the strolling violinist-she was amazing, and taking requests from everyone! All in all, a fantastic evening. Great job, Taste!
Always consistent. Great food, service, and atmosphere. This is really a hidden gem in Cleveland Heights.
Honest Review :
Excellent experience, amazing food , if you are looking to dine here , don’t think about it anymore , 😁 you won’t regret it ☺️
The owner or manager had a face shield but wasn’t wearing it properly. That made me feel uncomfortable
Great food, solid service, and an excellent wine selection. We enjoyed the fried calamari, truffle pomme frites, crab stuffed salmon, filet Napoleon, and a Lang & Reed Cab Franc. We will be back!
Taste was amazing! I got a Margarita and it was strong but tasty. The service was attentive and quick. I got the chops with potato pancake and brussel sprouts and they were SO amazing. No complaints here!!!
Out of town Italian sausage peppers was great; beet salad was on point. Calamari was good but a bit dark for my taste. Split a swordfish and lamb chops both were excellent but the chops were small and a short bone but very tasty. We would go back
Amazing food and great service. A little hidden gem. Filet mug on was the best I w ever had!
New Year’s Eve
Such a nice evening at Taste! The Chef is excellent, great menu & specials, the ambiance was so nice as was the service. Tables were socially distanced and we were so glad to have a night out.
Great gem in the neighborhood!! Always delightful drinks and specials!
Taste is delightful! It is a little gem in Cleveland Heights. Great food and nice atmosphere. Wait staff and hostess very sweet. Will definitely go back again soon and bring friends!
Our food was delicious and Carla was phenomenal! She was so attentive. Taste never disappoints me.
We asked to be in a "quiet" place and that request was fulfilled (thank you, Taste!). Food continues to be delicious. Service is exceptional. One of the few times you feel like spending the $$ is actually worth it.
Great food and wine. Good for those special occasions.
food was great fried calamari was great so lamb chops were good and the tenderloin with mushrooms were good; lemon drop was ok but the pear tree martini was divine. i really enjoyed my self ill be back for sure
We come here for Valentine’s Day and sweetest day every year. We love it here
Taste is one of our favorite restaurants for date nights. Staff always super friendly, food great, good drinks, and nice atmosphere.
The soup I had was offered as a special. OMG it was amazing! Coconut, curry, chicken with rice soup! Two of us had the lamb chops and they were extremely tender and juicy. My husband had the ribeye and it was also juicy and delicious. Lamb chops and steak were cooked exactly as we requested. Two had beet salads and they said they were delicious. We enjoyed the trio of homemade ice cream for dessert. This was our first time at Taste and we will definitely be back. The ambiance is cozy and classy. I know it sounds insignificant, but they use the proper wine glasses and I find that to be a hallmark of a good restaurant. Our waiter, Hector, was so pleasant and happy that he made the experience all the better. I would recommend Taste and I will take out of town guests to Taste, no hesitation.
Great neighborhood gem! Excellent food and generous portions. Very attentive service. Will definitely be back.
Lamb chops were the best that I have had anywhere. My wife had the seafood special (scallops) and were described as lovely. We will be back!!
This was the first time my wife and I went there and we were not disappointed in the least. We had the mussels as an appetizer and then I had the grilled lamb chops and she had the filter mignon. All were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. We will be returning for sure.
My husband and I went on a Saturday for my birthday dinner. When we arrived it was busy. I noticed all the servers and waitress had on masks but not the owner. The bar area was full, with no precaution in place for social distancing. We opted for outdoor seating which was also not equipped for 6ft of social distancing but was better than sitting in the restaurant.
We proceeded to sit at the opened table but then was instructed to sit in the corner. The corner was not an ideal location since there was limited mobility and the cover did not shield us from the rain. We asked the waitress to move and she obliged. Overall the food was delicious if they are interested in keeping their patrons safe while dining proper distancing and additional measurement should be in place to adhere to the Cleveland regulations to combat the spread of COVID-19.
there is no social distancing at this restaurant. People clog at the entrance, the bar has no partitions, tables are too close together.
The food and drinks were excellent! My husband had the ribeye special and I had the sea bass special. Both were outstanding!
Creative dishes that never disappoint! We are regulars.
We were very uncomfortable that the owner was not wearing a mask or social distancing —e.g., hugging customers. Moreover, customers were walking around without masks. At this point, we will not return until we have reassurances that Raj will enforce restrictions. We have always loved Taste, but not enough to risk contagion.
The food at Taste is as good as any restaurant in New York or Chicago. I highly recommend.
I was celebrating my 69th birthday with a dear friend. The service was great, as usual. Carla was more than accommodating. We were warmly great by the owner, Raj, who offered to buy a celebratory drink but, we had to leave.
The food ~D
Meal was outstanding! We had the halibut special and it was perfectly prepared! Service was outstanding as well!!
We waited for almost 30 minutes for someone to take our drink order. They never came, so we got up and left the restaurant.
The owner did not we are his mask at any point. We asked him about it and he said he isn’t working he’s just walking around the restaurant and it’s not necessary for him to wear a mask. The tables were also in no way socially distance. Nothing about the restaurant made us feel safe or comfortable eating there
