The food is not as good as it once was. And many of the ingredients are ore mixed so if you can’t eat one ingredient it very much limits your choices.
Also having a bar but a limited bar menu for lunch makes no sense to me.

I've frequented this restaurant about 3-4 times last year, and I always enjoy the brunch menu along with bottomless mimosa's so naturally, I thought it would be a good experience to share this place with friends for my birthday. The food and drinks were great as usual however, I would have preferred to have a different waitress. I'm not sure if she may have been overwhelmed by the other large group she was serving, but when she came back to our table she seemed flustered. Another guest of my party asked to join in for the bottomless mimosa but we were quickly told "No" because this person had not purchased an entree. We then requested bottomless mimosa for another guest who had purchased an entree and our waitress kept insisting that if she brought out the carafe, the person with the entree had to drink it. Almost as if she was implying that we were trying to pull the wool over her eyes. After acknowledging that we understood she then involved a manager who reiterated what she had already mentioned. It became even more uncomfortable after this whole situation when I inquired about when the bottomless drinks were over, as she came back to the table twice and passive-aggressively answered, "Let me check" as if she was unfamiliar with the restaurant policy. It was definitely a shock to me as this restaurant usually has remarkable service, and with almost an entire table ordering multiple entrees and bottomless drinks, I would have expected a bit more decorum considering the amount of money we were spending. Overall, I enjoyed celebrating my birthday but I would have preferred to have Jessica as my server, as she has served me twice in the past and her service is always outstanding.

We went utilizing the 'Dine LA' pricing though, have eaten here often. The food was exceptional and the price, at $20 per head, was a steal. Superb Risotto and Ceasar Kale/Shrimp Salad, Buratta, Calamari, etc. Perfectly, perfectly executed, EACH dish. Bravo 'TASTE'...!

I’ve been coming to Taste on Melrose for years and have never been disappointed. Yesterday had lunch with a friend and we loved our meals. We shared the Prix Fixe special for Dine LA Week which meant we had two appetizers and two entrees. It was all yummy and the price was very responsible. Sat in the garden and that was super.
