I really enjoyed Taste! The atmosphere was lively and pleasant, I enjoyed the bottomless mimosas, and the food was fresh. I did find my vegan burger to be quite dry and lacking, however. I’d definitely rather try out one of the other dishes the next time I come, as I was unimpressed with it.
The prices were quite reasonable and the service was quick and friendly. All in all, a pretty lovely experience.
Everything is great about this place until you have to pay, the server has to hover over your shoulder while you have to enter the tip in a mini CC payment device... it's just a bit strange but not a deal breaker.
The food is really fantastic. We were there on a Valentine's date and were seated on the corner table on the patio on the street. It was really lovely, but a little chilly and then too hot as the heat lamp was cranked. That said, the servings are pretty much typical high end restaurant size (ie. on the smaller size), but the food is amazing, the service is really great - but it was a tad slow. May have just been because they were quite busy though. I can highly recommend however, just don't sit on the street patio.
Great lively ambience with attractive casual decor. Good food and wine to be enjoyed in a friendly neighborhood restaurant that has something to offer for everyone. We had a wonderful evening and would highly recommend Taste. I have been several times with various friends who have all enjoyed the cuisine and atmosphere.
Went there for Valentine's dinner. Can be cozy and romantic. Definitely on the pricey side. Very creative drink menu. Highly recommend.
My favorite spot for brunch! I visit Taste every time I visit LA
I've been to Taste three times now: twice for brunch and once for dinner. The extremely personable customer service and divine food always leave me with a happy tummy. I will probably come back again and again and again. :)
Used to go here every other week for two years. Just returned from a 3 year LA hiatus and I'm glad that one thing is still great - Taste. And they really haven't changed much, in a good way. Friendly team, really good food, energetic vibe. One of my all time favs!
The food was great for the price. It's a nice space. The back area and middle patio are great. My main complaint is our waitress was next to useless. We were waiting around for service far too long at every step of the evening. They brought our dessert, but no silverware, so we sat there and stared at it for five minutes. There are also these obnoxious, drunken jackal women sitting next to us. So potentially be prepared for drunken amateur hour.
Service was amazing! Food even better! We made reservations, which upon arriving early, they still accommodated us quickly.
A little loud on Sunday's, but overall it was great.
Must try the Avocado toast.
Our server was amazing! Food was alright, but not great, it was slightly over priced, but understandable for the area... our table was a bit hidden in a corner which made it feel a little like we were shoved into tight quarters, however it was an overall great experience.
This restaurant really is perfection. Great food, great service, great ambiance and a great dining experience. Altho slightly pricey its one of the best in town.
Food Is amazing! Customer service was perfect, what more can you ask for?
Good food and service. Would eat outside next time. Inside a little close.
Delicious vegan option and beautiful atrium bar. I enjoyed the ambiance.
Another wonderful Lunch at Taste! We had the double smashed burger and the French Toast We were seated on their sunny front patio. Michael was an absolute doll. It was a cold day, but the heaters were on and we were completely comfortable.
I'm a regular at Taste. It is one of our favorite spots. There was a private event in the back area, which is where we normally sit. We were happy to sit in front, however. Service was dreadful. Slow & unresponsive, even after asking to get the bill because we waited so long for it, we had to ask again. When I dine at Taste, I like to enjoy my meal & take my time, but this was crazy. I'm hoping this was a one-off because I don't want to remove it from our list of go-to spots.
When we sit in the back, we never have an issue with service, I must say. Being in plain site of the bartender & other servers seems to help.
Great service...reasonable prices, generally good food but my frittata was very dry so gave lower food rating this time. Coffee is fantastic!
Taste is very consistent when it comes to food and atmosphere. They consistently have an issue with service where it seems you never know who your waiter is for the first 5-10 minutes and I hope they figure that out.
Love the prefix menu and the back bar area!
Just a bit overpriced.
There were many younger people during the brunch time.
The food was just not that satisfying.
Great ambience and aestethic, food could use a little more effort. The fries or rather potato shavings were very disappointing
great location, very nice staff. Food is not special
They’re getting better. I really only return because the people I’m with want to go for the cocktails. Customer service is definitely improving. Unfortunately after stressing that I have a dairy allergy my item came out with cheese all over it. Mistakes happen and it’s not a big deal as I noticed before I ate it. The team was apologetic and quick to correct the error. Normally I would not even make a fuss but because these kinds of things happen almost every time I go to Taste I have to mention it.
We sat at a hi-top in the bar which I typically do. Unfortunately, this time around, we had a group of 5 right next to us that made it impossible to hear because they were obnoxiously loud and drunk. The food and service was great, as always.
We like to eat here when we are in the area for a show. Service is friendly and fast. Food is comfort food for us. Prices are reasonable and they have a frequent dining app that pays you back for doing something you love. If they make a mistake, it is always resolved in the customer's favor. Thank you, Taste.
Very good restaurant. Little pricey but not too bad. Great service.
Very good service by server Morgan with food and all very good all around. Different areas of the restaurant nosier than others. Initially seated in back near the bar and had to reseat in the middle patio as sound in the back just reverberates greatly. My guests said their food was very good also. Looking forward to the next visit at TASTE.
Fantastic Dinner! I had spectacular service from the petite blonde server, she was super sweet and helped us select the perfect entrees. The double smash burger was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had, although it was very messy. I can’t wait to come back for more.
Restaurant was pretty empty and we were seated (squeezed) in between two other tables. One was a teenage birthday dinner (6 girls). Hostess should have recognized that noise, our age, only 2 of use, the better option was one of the empty tables in the other room. Will keep that in mind in making future reservations. Or, just say nah, we'd like to go back to the other room.
The food quality wasn't good at all maybe it was just that time but I would not recommend it.
Always the best place to go, whether a friend dinner, a date or Bday celebration. Food is consistently great.
Service was horrible
Perfect lunch spot, lovely meal on the patio where my guest from the UK couldn’t stop exclaiming how perfect it was. Delicious DineLA menu and great service.
The food was delicious as always. The tables are a little close to each other, but otherwise it’s a fantastic restaurant!
Good: food- we had 5 people in our party and everyone loved the food
Bad: even though we had a 6:45pm reservation on a Wednesday evening, we were seated in the cold, drafty section right off the street with just plastic coverings over us, and seated in what felt like patio furniture. We immediately asked for a table inside (we could clearly see open tables) but we’re turned down and given blankets. We had to ask three times for space heaters to be turned on. Service was friendly but SLOW and literally saw our waiter twice the entire meal. We had to ask repeatedly for wine that had been ordered.
Will not be going back.
Have been here before and always love the food, service and ambiance. Sat inside for only the second time since coming here and liked that it wasn’t loud so we could hold a normal conversation without yelling at each other. Had their prix fixe menu with Chicken Soup, Chicken Paillard and Bread Pudding for dessert - all tasty. Will definitely be back.
Good meal and nice staff. Taste brings casual dining up one level. Kobe beef meatballs so so tender and flavorful!
The food at Taste on Melrose was delicious. I had a skirt steak that was cooked perfectly. Service was good too. The atmosphere is nice, although a little crowded inside. There is a nice outside seating area, with heaters in the winter. I'll definitely go back.
