    Taste is always great! We’ve never had a bad meal and always have a great experience. We usually get the same thing: my husband gets the gnocchi and I get the roasted Asiago crusted chicken with risotto. Such awesome flavor in both dishes! One of our best friends says the lasagna is the best he’s ever had. Service is always perfect and the owner is very gracious.

    The decor is tired. The upholstery faded. It’s May and they still haven’t taken down the Christmas decorations. The food is definitely overpriced and the presentation lacking. However the service was good.

    Second visit to "Taste". We were very pleasantly surprised at our first time so we had to try again to see if it was a fluke. I can attest to the fact it is indeed a very nice place with very good food and service along with live piano music. And best of all, quite affordable. Definitely recommend.

    There was only one server for the entire restaurant. She did a FANTASTIC job, but it was way too much for one person. She was taking orders, serving, running food, watering and busing! The owner meanwhile stood around, sat tables and made a few drinks behind the bar.....oh did I mention there was no bar tender on duty and the server was making drinks (only basics - no cocktails) too? !. I know finding good help is very difficult today, but maybe the owner could step in, step up and work!

    We came for Mother's Day for the first time. Service started out very good and I was pleased. Then as the restaurant filled in the service stalled out and our food and additional drinks took forever to arrive which turned off my guests. One burger was overcooked since you could tell it sat. My steak was cooked to my liking and was tasty but you could tell it sat for a bit as well. I definitely want to give the restaurant as second chance perhaps on a less busy evening but it may be a while.

    I had heard best things about the place. Service wasn’t good at all; from the wait acknowledged at the entrance and be seated, ti getting a refill of water, to getting a drink. They must be short staffed so I’ll give them a break. The food was excellent, so I’ll go back.

    This restaurant has been around for a long time. The food and service are consistently good. When I was there on a Saturday night there was a keyboard player who contributed to the laid back vibe and atmosphere and was a nice touch for a Saturday date night.

    Tried for restaurant week. Food was good but both our plates had hot and lukewarm aspects so kitchen was not consistent with plating food at same time. One dish was supposed to have roasted green beans and instead had practically raw whole carrots (very had to cut with only the butter knife given). Ordered coffee with dessert which was also lukewarm and was just a bad cup of coffee. Server was not very friendly. Did enjoy the atmosphere, the arancini balls, mushroom risotto and the chocolate mousse; cocktails were great but overall do not think it was worth the money.

    Taste is a great place. Food is delicious, generous portions and the bartender still knows how to make and present a cocktail. Sophisticated but casual environment. What we always call a white tablecloth restaurant. Wonderful vibe. Can’t wait to go back. One of the few local restaurants that is still open a little later.
