We went to Taste on Melrose this weekend for my birthday brunch! The food was delicious, and the service was great! They gave me a surprise key lime pie and a gift card for my birthday! Plus their bottomless mimosa deal is great! I would definitely go back.

The food was subpar. We got the feeling the waiter wanted us to leave when we were finished eating and wanted more mimosas.

I guess if you're looking for loud and crowded for a Sunday brunch, this might be for you. The food was only average; certainly not worth the WeHo price bump. No reason to go back.

TASTE ON MELROSE is consistently excellent, across the board. On the odd occasion that something isn’t up to par, they immediately & graciously do whatever’s required to set things right and keep a wonderful dining experience on track. Our thanks to management and every server we’ve had, for ensuring a great evening and our continued patronage.

Nice vibe, good food, decorated well. Outdoor patio was a good choice. Just pay the $7.50 for valet parking as their is no neighborhood parking at dinner time. Prices were just right.

We have been to taste many time, this occasion we were there for their pre-fix New Year’s Eve menu and it was amazing! Service as always was great but the food was unreal. Very, very loud but that was mostly the table next to us. Definitely recommend for their set dinners and special occasions.

The waiter tonight was horrible. He took ten min to get to even a drink other and another fifteen to deliver. Didn’t tell specials and never checked back during the meal. The water person was our service.

Very cozy former house layout. We had a party of 6 for Christmas Eve dinner. It was a cold/rainy night in LA. The table was a little tight and one side had their backs to an open interior window that was adjacent to an enclosed exterior area but had a cold draft. The host and wait staff were friendly. Good menu choices. Most of our party loved the food, except for me and my wife. My wife just made a wrong selection and it had nothing to do with quality of the food. On the other hand, I order the filet mignon, medium rare, but it came medium-tolerable but not ideal. I will return, but will have a different entree.

They gave us surprise drinks on the house because we weren’t seated until 7:32 for our 7:30 reservation. We were both shocked and pleased.

We went to Taste for brunch....again. This time we sat in the courtyard, which was nice. They have space heaters and blankets available. The food is always good. I had the super food salad with chicken this time, which was tasty and filling although there were only 3 small pieces of beet in the entire salad. I also had a bloody mary, which was not very good. Just a plain standard mix that was much too tomatoey. It did not taste like they added anything for more flavor.... won't be ordering that again. I guess I'll stick with the mimosas. ;)
