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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Another great experience at Taste for my cousin's birthday. We surprised her and it did not disappoint! Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and drink selections. We had several items from the menu, which were all very appetizing. The Spicy Mange Margarits is a must have! The seafood dip, crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms and flat breads made the experience very enjoyable.

The food and service was outstanding--the lamb chops were phenomenal and the grilled watermelon salad was great! Only downside is it is a bit noisy with the concrete floor and open seating, and it sure isn't inexpensive. Quality locale though.

We celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary at Taste. It was a wonderful experience! The staff, musician, and food was top notch superior! Our fantastic waitress, Kelly, was very friendly, and everything she suggested we try from the menu was delicious! If you are looking for an intimate experience with apps & drinks, you definitely need to try Taste!

After trying Taste for dinner, we went for brunch and it was delicious. We ordered the Taste Egg Benedict and the biscuits & gravy with cheese grits complete with mimosa flights. We finished with the bread pudding. Everything was great & we loved the Taste spin on it all. Service was outstanding!! Can’t wait to go back.
