Great location and ambience was everything! Our waiter was very attentive and the mimosas were large and yummy! Food was okay I don’t think I ordered the right thing but everything else looked decadent. I would recommend coming here for brunch!

Fathered day brunch. Food was not great. Bland and pricey for what you get. Waitress seemed moody, not too nice at first. Then she was better.

You pay to sit on Melrose Ave, not to get good quality food. Not worth it.

I have been to Taste in West Hollywood many times, most often for lunch. This time
for dinner. It was lovely sitting on the patio and quiet enough to chat with an old
friend. The food is always tasty and the service fine. My only disappointment this
time was that on my recommendation we both ordered the Eric Waldorf Salad for our
main course and though it was delicious it had barely any of the promised chicken in it.
Not really a main course at all.

Very good food with reasonable prices; something which is hard to find in this neighborhood. I ordered the blackened salmon salad, which came with a huge portion of perfectly cooked fish. My son enjoyed his pork chop. I ordered their basil pomegranate sangria after the waitress assured me it was not sickeningly sweet. She was right and I loved it

Went to Taste for a friend’s birthday brunch. It was super loud and crazy there. The food was good but the mimosas were terrible. Our server was great though and you could tell they were just slammed but probably won’t be back.

For the second time in a roll...my food came out messed up! The first time I was there...I ordered “vegan meatballs” as I am vegan!!! And they brought out beef meatballs which I didn’t find out I was eating beef until there was only one left! They apologized, comped my meal, and gave me a $20 gift card. I finally decided to use it on Saturday for brunch...hoping that I wouldn’t have any issues. Our waiter was rude!! And there was a LONG blonde hair in my pasta! The waiter didn’t even ask me what I wanted to do...she just took my plate and re-ordered it for me. The manager came by and said “I don’t know how that got in there...they wear hair nets!” I’m like, “well I don’t know how it happened either but it was cooked and smothered under the cheese sauce!” She said they weren’t bringing out another one and I said “the waitress didn’t ask me...I don’t want another one!” I ordered a salad...which they did comp me for, but I’m DONE with Taste! I used the $20 on my friends food and we left! Oh and we ordered coffee and her coffee cup was dirty! The waitress was just rude and had an attitude!

I was kind of disappointed but I know that holiday weekend brunches can be difficult. The server was very nice . The food took a long time but I kind of expected that. I had the French Toast which was very soggy unfortunately. My friends dishes were great she reported. Not our best visit but not our last either.

We hadn't been back for awhile and we're thrilled that the food still "Tastes" so good. Four of us each enjoyed our lunches. We especially appreciated the 1/2 price bottle of wine that's offered on Mondays and ordered a great California Chard. It's nice to see that Tastes continues to served really good food for fair prices.
