    I haven't found a dish I don't love. The small plates are perfect with a salad. The large plates are great for big appetites. And the tapas never disappoint.

    Taste was a wonderful experience. The food was quite excellent. Although my wife and I are not drinkers, I did take notice of their very vast selection of wines. The overall ambiance and decor was wonderful. We were sat near a window seat during the day, so we got a greats view of the area. The grilled watermelon salad was incredible to me, however my wife didn’t like it so be warned it may be a niche taste. The shrimp scampi was very flavorful and the bread was soft & warm. The main course my wife & I both had the Herb Crusted Salmon. The Salmon was cooked to perfection. The fish had a wonderful sear on it and the crust was very well done. There was a nugget of pesto in the middle to spread on your meat. I definitely will be coming again for a special occasion.

    This restaurant is too small for music especially when it’s crowded. You can’t hear the people at your table if they talk in a normal volume. The server seemed harried. He didn’t remember to bring some of the stuff we ordered to the table.

    The menu was a bit of a puzzle as it was different from the website. The Hostess did not have our reservation in hand and told us just take a seat, not the best. The waiter was very good. This was our first visit and we may be able to manage future visits better next time.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Taste. The food and drinks were great and the atmosphere was very nice. Our server, Jacob, was excellent. He was so friendly and made good suggestions about both food and drinks. It's one of our favorite places to have an evening out and we'll definitely be returning.

    Our reservation, made and confirmed through open table, was not on the receptionist’s handwritten list; so we were provided an undesirable table near the kitchen door and next to a very noisy group. The waitress assigned to our table was overloaded and did not come back after our appetizers. So we had empty glasses and empty plates —taken away by the busboy. So we paid our bill at the door as we left. We have enjoyed Taste in past visits but this was a great disappointment -BTW, it was a birthday dinner.

    Fantastic vibe, very elegant and food is beautifully prepared. There was too much pesto on my salmon and my friend was thrilled with her tacos. However the waitress was super pleasant and the live music was excellent. I would definitely return.

    We enjoyed our meal. Our only disappointment was the lack of a physical menu. We had anticipated closing several items from the tapas menu, but trying to do that from small screens wasn’t worth the trouble, so we just had small plates.

    I highly recommend Taste—excellent dinner—we had salmon and the small filet. Perhaps spend more time acquainting the first-time patrons with the menu and discounted wines that are a reduced price for to-go only.

    Everything was very good, from the service, the food, and the wine selection. We had a wonderful experience. All the food was very yummy, but the deserts were the biggest hit of the night. The whole table loved each of the three deserts we got. The only thing I didn't like was having to use a QR code to get the menu. The online menu was separated on multiple webpages which made it a huge hassle to navigate between the multiple sections of the menu.
