Our food was excellent. I hand the entre Salmon and my husband had the small plate Filet—both were incredible! I also had a flight of Chardonnay, and left with a bottle of Black Stallion! Loved the atmosphere and the live music too!
We had a wonderful night out at Taste celebrating my husband's birthday. The food, service, and atmosphere were all excellent. Great drinks and wine selection too. It's a tad pricey, but worth every penny for a special night out.
It was our first visit to Taste, and it went above our expectations. The food was amazing and the flights of wine were on par/better than other wine bars we have visited. Also, tables were appropriately distanced during this time of the pandemic. We felt safe, welcomed, and catered to. We will definitely return!
Good meal, service and wine.
Great and fun dining experience!!
The food was amazing! The lobster risotto was so creamy and nothing like you would find at any other restaurant. I love the large selection and variety of wines and beer. The option to try different wines through the wine flight menu is fantastic! While there was live entertainment, we were still able to carry on a conversation at our table. The service was excellent. She was attentive without being overbearing. We will definitely return!
Had a great dinner. The blacken snapper was delicious.
Very good wine and food. Nice service, and a cool casual vibe.
Overall our experience at Taste was pretty good. We enjoyed out food, wine, and the overall atmosphere.
Only complaint is the menu always seems a bit small with little to no vegiterian options (outside of cheese plates).
We will be back because the food they have is always good, the wine is delicious, and it's kids free.
Had an amazing dinner and all around experience, went for a date night and was perfect! Great service
Amazing wine, amazing food and amazing service! My favorite place in Montgomery!
Our server was very knowledgeable, and professional. Perfect “Date Night” evening.
TASTE always delivers fabulous food, unrivaled service, and an extraordinary wine list! Our favorite restaurant in Montgomery!
Great food, drinks and service! Highly recommended.
The wine is what it's all about! Not that the food isn't good, but...
We had a great experience at Taste. The food was great and the server was very familiar with all of the items on the menu. We dined outside which was so nice.
It is small plates, but everything was amazing. A great way to celebrate my son's birthday!!!
Good date night place. Taste is our favorite in Montgomery. Love to go there for good food in small portions and its setting that allows us to talk to each other.
We arrived early and had already been set up. There’s was a special menu for Valentines Day a 4 course meal. We ordered the seafood dip, ceasar and strawberry vingerette salad, blackened and regular filet w/ mashed potatoes and broccolini, and for dessert the pecan pie. All the food was amazing. Very rich and flavorful. We paired it with a Riesling not on the menu that was also amazing. Btw the sale their wines retail. Just a warning if you are a heavy eater this may not be the spot for you.
Need a better waiter - not very personable. Seemed like a robot.
Lucky was wonderful, enjoyed his talent!
The restaurant is small so, I would always recommend a reservation.
I really enjoyed the wine flights!
The cajun linguine with sausage and shrimp was very good.
The dishes are very small for the price, just be aware.
I will definitely return!
Another excellent adventure in wine and food! Service was knowledgeable and the food was delicious.
The four course meal was outstanding. Their cocktail list was unusual and creative. My medium rare filet was so tender. I was very impressed with our New Year’s dinner.
TASTE is a worthwhile visit for an evening of adult time, with many diverse wine choices and very delectable food offerings. Price point for Montgomery is a challenge, but then again, TASTE is worth the visit.
Came to Taste to celebrate my boyfriend’s graduation from Officer Training School and commission in the United States Air Force! Great dinner with knowledgeable service and wonderful recommendations on their wine flights!
LOVED this restaurant for a casual adult family member gathering. We did tapas and shared. The food was really good. Standouts were the charcuterie board, pear salad, salmon, meatballs. The wine flight options offered are a great addition. Few restaurants in the south do this and TASTE does it well. This was our first visit and we will most certainly return.
I wanted to LOVE this place. But it fell short for us this evening. Gave the food a 3 star because everything that came out for the small plates was overly salty. And i love salt. I salt my food before i taste it on most days, but we didn’t have salt shakers on the table to do so. Which thank goodness. But our pastas were borderline hard to eat. (And yes i understand they are small plates. But i expected a little more than a fist full of pasta. But maybe that’s $13 worth of pasta.) And the carb queen that i am asked for mashed potatoes as a side and got some kind of wedge potatoes? My husband got the bison burger rare... which came out well done. I discourage sending back food so he just sucked it up. Things i can recommend on the menu other than their bomb drinks are the scallops (2) over the risotto and the charcuterie. Everything else seemed to fall short and i hate that because the atmosphere was great, the live music - a nice fella named Matt out of Birmingham - was unbeatable and the service was great other than it taking 15 minutes to get a server (other than a sommelier) to come to our table. Would only go back for the drinks and would probably sit at the bar.
Stopped in with my husband for tapas and cocktails. We both ordered specialty martinis and were a bit disappointed. A great wine and beer list, would make choices from this next time.
The tapas were delicious. Sampled the stuffed mushrooms, seafood dip, charcuterie board and ended by sharing the praline bread pudding. Every bite was yummy!
Service was outstanding. Will definitely go again.
Clint and Kelly were amazing! Hands down the best dining and wine experience I have had in a very long time. Both provided expert knowledge of wine, food selection and a very large wine selection!
We will be back very soon!
Clint and Kelly take care of their customers as if they are family. Defiantly will be going back
Good option if you are looking for a light bite to eat in a nice intimate atmosphere. Server did not offer any suggestions or additional information about the menu. When we attempted to order crab cakes appetizer we were then informed they were out. Ordered the bacon wrapped scallops small plate. Came out with barely cooked bacon wrapped around pale white flavorless scallops. Husband ordered short rib pasta and he enjoyed it. Didn't order dessert decided to go somewhere else to finish our meal.
We sincerely apologize that we did not live up to our own service standards. We take your comments seriously and need them to learn and to get better. I would like to speak with you more about your experience and invite you back for dinner on the house. Please call the restaurant and ask for Clint. 334-676-4333. If I am not there please leave your name and number and I will call you right back. Thank you
As usual it was top notch
While the sauce on the pork chop was good, I think it would be better if it was put on top of the mashed potato. Because of the thick sauce on the chop, I wasn’t able to tell was the bones and fat were. Therefore it was a bit tricky to cut and trim the fat. It was unpleasant to have the fat in my mouth. Overall the flavor was good but the cut of the chop was not a premium cut.
Good food but small portions for a brunch. Kind of pricey for the amount of food served
el of live guitarist was so loud you could not hear friends talk across the table. When she took a break— I asked the server to turn down the blaring Jimi Hendrix filler music. Nothing happened. Food was good as always.
Have decided to take this restaurant off our list. Just way too loud. We go there to have great food & conversation. Yeah food is great. The level of noise is unbelievable.
The food was great and they had an excellent variety of wine. We especially liked that they had pre-determined wine flights. The only complaint we had, and its nit picky, is that they used the same type of wine glasses for both whites and reds.
Food was delicious. Service was good, although it seemed like we were being rushed at times.
My main complaint is either make the entrees bigger or reduce the prices by a few dollars. I don't think I'm alone in this view, given how empty it was at 7:30 on a Saturday night.
Absolutely delicious food! Everything I had was amazing, from the stuffed mushrooms, to the charcuterie, to the Short rib pasta alfredo, oh my goodness!
Our waitress/hostess was very attentive and helpful! I have been recommending TASTE to everyone asking for restaurant recommendations! Can't wait to return!
good food, service could be a touch better. More attentive to our needs and less pushy.
Went for brunch. Service was slow and awkward. Ordered a flight of sparkling wine. It was served at room temperature. It was replaced quickly but it took a while to get the waiter's attention. I love this place but Sunday brunch was a not so good. As to the food, I ordered the Western Skillet which is described as "grilled filet, roasted potato hash, poached egg topped with lemon thyme hollandaise". It was a small dished covered with potatoes, four thin slices of meat (maybe two tablespoons, a small poached egg, and almost invisible glaze of what could be hollandaise. It was good but not what I expected. I'll go again (I've been many times and love their non-brunch menu and wines) but this was a sad disappointment.
