    Honestly, I was a bit disappointed in the chef's version of Hollandaise sauce. It didn't have a nice Sauvignon or that bite from the lemon and vinegar it was much too thin. The eggs were done perfectly and again I'm a bit of a perfectionist on eggs. Benedict. I thought the Canadian bacon was a bit thick. The Canadian bacon had a nice smoky flavor and was very tasty. What saved the meal was? My daughter and I split the caramel banana French toast. It was exquisite. The service was excellent as always.

    My wife and I really enjoyed our meal there. Our waiter, CJ, was great. Kept the drinks refilled, and we didn’t have to wait for service. My wife really enjoyed the scallops. I had the pecan crusted snapper, which was cooked perfectly. Definitely recommend.

    The Taste is a nice cozy restaurant. The food was delicious. The service was top tier. I would definitely go back again. It was a little dark in there for my liking, but it was for the atmosphere. It's right at the entrance. I drove pass it, at first

    The food was great. We ordered 3 small dishes and shared so we could get a taste of everything we both wanted. It was a little too dark in my opinion and I was disappointed that they were sold out of one of the desserts. I can see us visiting here again.

    This is just what the Name implies - "Taste" - you get to experience several dishes b/c this is more a tapas style restaurant. The Spanish meatballs were delish and the pecan crusted Salmon was incredible. Wait staff were on point and the ambience is relaxed romantic. Great date night!!

    I'll be honest, was not what expected walking in. Super loud, host losing reservation. Food was not good, I ordered the salmon, potatoes and broccoli and the only thing I was able to eat was the salmon. Overall I probable will not be going by there again.

    After a very long day of moving my child back to college I thought I would treat us to a new spot. Not until I arrived did I realize that you have to be 19 years old to eat there. Please let your potential customers know that in advance. We were not asked to leave until after our order had been taken. Poor communication up front from the restaurant. My 13 year old and 17 year old were disappointed. All could have easily been avoided.

    Taste has quickly become our favorite date night location. We always have a flight or 2 of wine. We usually get some sort of appetizer/small plate. Then we will split one of the large plates. Usually one of the steaks on the menu. This usually runs us right at $100 for the 2 of us.

    The server was ok but seemed rushed & bothered when we started to place our orders . Server spilled the martini on my utensils but when I asked for a fresh set of silver ware , he asked me why I needed another one & proceeded to grab a clean set while appearing bothered & disgruntled. I am usually an over tipper , but nope. Not this time.

    My only complaint is the lack of written menus. When I go out to dine with friends, especially at what I consider a nicer restaurant, we don't want phones out on the table, even to review the menu. Once phones come out they are hard to put away. In a restaurant like Taste, with an generous menu and extensive wine list, printed menus, or at least a printed wine list and posted menu board are a necessity.

    Our evening was perfect. From the lighting to the service not one moment was left untouched with detail. The bubbly flight and old fashioned ordered with their signature Woodford Reserve was top notch. The explanation of tapas vs. small plates fit our agenda. Scallops and crab cakes were our fav dishes along with the shrimp scampi dip and Italian meatballs. The night was finished off with their delish bread pudding. Very extensive selection of wines. The French are always a good choice.

    We enjoy great food and dinner was pretty good. I had the braised beef with cheddar mashed potatoes and asparagus. All was good but the beef had a couple of dry spots on it and too much fat for the price. Don’t mind a small plate but give me beef with no waste. Hubby had the shrimp and grits and didn’t understand the grit cake noting that regular grits would have been better match Chef knows how to season and flavor properly without over salting Dessert was a disappointment. I had the white mouse cake which was nothing but whipped cream in a pie shell. Hubby had bread pudding but the sauce had leaked all over the bag so it was a bummer for him I rate this restaurant 4 stars as Chef is spot on with flavor and service was good
