    Ambience was eclectic. Large selection of whiskey and wine. We ordered a flight (3 choices) of whiskey and discovered a whiskey that we booth liked. We chose the full tasting menu plus the wine pairing. As expected the "Tasting" entrees were small portions. My husband and I have been to "Tasting" restaurants before and usually the serving staff provides a small education on the choices (food and wine). That did not happen here which was disappointing There were no questions about wine preference and thus we had various permutations of white wine (which I am not a big fan of) with each course. Overall the food was tasteful but not memorable. The restaurant appears to be understaffed as our server was taking care of multiple tables and therefore we patiently waited for service. Parking is rather challenging so a word of advice--check out where parking garages are prior to beginning your drive.
    The Tasting RoomResponded 3 days ago
    Thanks for the feedback - your server should have asked about wine preferences so the pairings can be customized. We pre-select wines to pair with the menu items and seems that the server didn't follow the selections. A good training session to be schedule.

    From our initial greeting, to the service, the food and the overall atmosphere - we were extremely disappointed. The service definitely set the tone for the night and unfortunately was horrible. The waiter even laughed at the end and made a comment about how horrible the service was. In addition to that, the food was just mediocre - but would have considered giving it another shot if the whole experience wasn’t so awful. Likely won’t be back.

    Ashley, We're sorry about your experience. You were the last reservation after an overwhelming night of out-of-town eclipse visitors, on top of one of our servers needing to leave for a family emergency. The team knew they dropped the ball and comped your table for your meals, which was their way of apology. We hope you'll give us another try.

    Pleasantly surprised! Menu selections were varied - something for everyone. We split the kale salad. Generous portion and delicious. We got the cod and the gnocchi and shared them. Good flavors and good presentation. Then we shared the peanut butter explosion (chocolate brownie layered with peanut butter mousse). Yum! Our server was great, yet spread too thin. They had a full house and two servers. Needed at least one more. Great meal, fair price!

    Thanks for the 5 stars Pam. Glad you enjoyed everything. Saturday was a Broadway Landmark Show night, so always a bit more hectic than a non-show night. We did have 3 servers on all evening. Hope to see you again soon.

    Dinner at the Tasting Room during Dining Week was the nicest meal I've eaten in Syracuse in years. My salmon was perfectly prepared and the mid-winter salad was delicious. Our servers were friendly and attentive, the food was beautifully prepared, and the wine tasting that was happening on the other side of the dining room added interest to an already lovely evening. I've already been back twice for lunch, bringing different friends on each visit. Thank you Jane and Kylie for taking good care of us, right down to homemade cookies for dessert.

    Great service with a great meal. We did the 3 course dinner and it was fabulous. I loved being able to try so many different menu items, as each dish was unique. I’d dined with someone who was trying The Tasting Room for the first time & he said the short ribs was one of the best meals he’s had at a restaurant in Syracuse. Overall the experience was amazing as usual. If you’re looking for restaurant that knows casual fine dining, definitely check this place out.

    Food was pretty good but nobody asked about food allergies, my friends meal didn’t come with two things that it said it did on the menu, one of which they later fixed. We ran out of water halfway through our meal and nobody came to bring more. Prices are pretty high for level of service Editing to add: I was not the party of 20 as stated in the restaurants response, I was in a party of 2 people, not sure how they confused that.
    The Tasting RoomResponded on February 28, 2024
    We strive for 5 stars & disappointed with your review - the team worked hard to create an experience for your party of 20 guests (which is a larger table than most restaurants will accept). We set a beautiful table so the birthday girl felt special. Our chef welcomed the table with 2 complimentary bottles of bubbly. Yes, one of the servers grabbed a dinner before it was released by the expeditor and rectified the issue immediately by brining out a completely new meal. Kylie was refilling water bottles, but if your bottle was empty all you needed to do was ask. Our prices are very fair and this table had 2 servers working the table as well as added a couple servers from our event upstairs to help deliver the meals. We had a full restaurant that night, too. I give my team 5 stars.

    From the moment we walked in I knew it would be an experience that would be amazing! It’s beautiful inside. There’s art for sale all over the walls and it’s gorgeous! Jane was our server and she made our dining experience so special. We decided to do the 7 course tasting menu and Jane was so excited that we were excited! we added the wine pairings and I’m so glad that we did! The wines were well thought out and went so well with each course. It was one of, if not the best meal I’ve had in Syracuse. Jane mentioned the store attached and we got to go over and browse. It was so cute full of locally sourced merchandise. Thank you to Jane and Chef JC for the best meal and service!

    The food was outstanding but restaurant atmosphere needs some updates such as better and comfortable sittings areas. Also our table was close to the door and each time they opened the door a cold ❄️🥶 air would get in. Suggestions for improvement: comfortable sittings, a second door for entrance so cold air does not get in.

    Glad you loved the food. Watch for some changes to the space - this was a SKY Armory ballroom that was transitioned into a restaurant. We're building out another ballroom to replace the one we gave up. All this takes $$$.

    The day after Valentines Day, we tried their five course prix fixe dinner with wine pairings. The food was exquisite - every course was delicious and beautifully presented.

    We ate here on Valentine's Day. When I tell you it was the best meal of my life...it was the BEST meal of my life. We did the wine pairing with dinner and it was a really wonderful experience. They were so knowledgeable about all of the wines and everything paired beautifully with the food. The service was wonderful. Everything came out at the perfect timing for all of the courses. The food was DELICIOUS. And the live music was a nice touch. 10/10 would recommend The Tasting Room! p.s. Suzie is the BEST! You will be lucky if you have her waiting on you! :)

    We felt very underwhelmed by their Valentine’s Day menu. TL;DR - they’ve been beaten on price and quality of meal by competitors in Syracuse. Pros - service was good, our waiter was friendly and made us feel welcomed and let us know there was no rush at the end of the meal. Cocktails were good and we felt fairly priced. Cons - Over $100 per person for a meal we were not really impressed by. Each course was good, but nothing we’d write home about. Syracuse has some decent competition at that price, it’s not worth going expensive if it can’t be memorable. Decor also lacks some personality, has the “live, laugh, love” vibe.

    Anonymous - we're disappointed you weren't impressed - we've only had 5 star reviews from our other Valentine guests - with comments like this "the food was out of this world! Best short ribs and Ribeye I've had ever anywhere". The Prix Fix menu was a 5 course meal that included oysters, lobster, duck, lamb and felt it was a good value. The menu was also available a la carte with all offerings $31 or less other than the ribeye for 2 which was $25.50 per person.

    We were going to a show at the Landmark, hoping to find a seat somewhere close. We wondered into the Tasting Room, and really lucked out. It looked like they may have just opened. We wanted to sit at the bar and just have a few apps and drinks. The chef, I want to say JC was his name, was there talking to someone. I asked about gluten free options and he handed us a tasting menu that we "had to" order from. Taking a peek at this menu, there were three course options, the cheapest was $55. This was per person, which is a bit much when you intend to have a few appetizers before a show at 5:30pm on a Thursday. He mentioned this was something new they were trying out- and honestly it's a great idea. But for the right customer. He clearly takes pride in his craft, we decided to stay because he allowed us to order off of another menu. I asked about a dish and if I was able to swap out fish for chicken, you could tell this bothered him but he said it was fine. When I asked for something to be added I was told no. Again, I get it. My mom and sister ordered the flatbread which they said was good, and the kettle chips. These were overcooked so much the cheese was hard and chips were way overcooked. So my sister is allergic to corn, and I gluten. When we see homemade pub chips on a menu that we can both enjoy it's a big deal. Our bartender's name was Martina. The absolute best customer service I have had in a while. She was attentive from the moment we walked in to the moment the bar was packed. She made us feel comfortable. She was the highlight of that restaurant, if the bartender didn't have her personality...then we would have probably left.

    Samantha, We do strive for 5 stars. We feature a Club Menu from 4p-6p daily and Thursdays we feature our 3, 5 and 7 course tasting menu of which the 3 course menu is $55. We weren't expecting the amount of show traffic that we got - otherwise, we would have included a show menu (won't make that mistake again). Chef JC is always very accommodating with our guests and he apologizes if you felt otherwise. Martina is just a lovely human. Any time you're going to a show we highly recommend making a reservation on OpenTable. Next time you're in, the Pub Chips are on us and I guarantee you'll be a fan of them.

    Our new spot! Susie was an expert on the drinks and menu. Best meal I've had in months, and not to be that guy... It was as much as our regular places. So end of night, great food, great drinks, great service!

    Thanks for the 5 stars - and our prices are very reasonable for the amazing food created by Chef du Cuisine J Carlos and his team. Now, we can be one of your regular places, too.

    First visit was a good one. Menu was limited due to theater crowd but the options were very good. Beef short ribs were excellent and the live entertainment created great ambiance. Restaurant staff were friendly, attentive, and welcoming.

    We went for dinner before a show at the Landmark. The short rib, flatbread, and tiramisu were delicious. Definitely had more of a vibe of an event space, but overall we really enjoyed ourself and will be back.

    Sweetest most accommodating staff ever. The food could have been better but maybe we went on an off night? We both ordered the steak, mine was overdone, potatoes were lumpy, and the broccoli was burnt... luckily my date preferred it that way. The soup was good but cold and the portion was small. Drinks were good!! Dessert was the best part so don't skip on that like I almost did!! There are definitely better restaurants in the 'cuse but maybe this one is better for a fun event than a fancy dinner.
    The Tasting RoomResponded on January 26, 2024
    Isabel, We strive for 5 stars and usually hit the mark. Sorry we didn't hit the mark for you and have shared your feedback with our culinary team. The broccoli is roasted, so there will be some crispness to the floral tips. Our steaks we serve medium-rare unless specified otherwise and certainly always encourage our guests to let us know if a temperature is not satisfactory for the their soup and steak so that we can take care of the situation during the dining experience. We hope you'll try us again to turn you into a fan. We have a lovely 3, 5, or 7 course tasting menu we feature every Thursday.

    This was our second visit to the Tasting Room and we loved it just as much as the first time. We loved sitting up by the front windows with the lights and Holiday decorations. The wine and food we excellent, especially the pork loin small plate. The service was friendly and warm. Thank you!

    Excellent food (portions a bit small), beautifully prepared. Excellent cocktail. Wine flight custom prepared by Susie, after simply inquiring about our tastes. She got it right. Intimate, elegant, and cozy atmosphere with a mix of tables and casual seating areas. A bit more expensive than we would have liked, but that would not prevent us from returning.

    Thanks for the 5 stars! We compare our pricing to other restaurants and run the same and mostly less for similar entrees with Pastabilities, The York, Prime, Lemon Grass, The Craftsman Inn... We look forward to a return visit.

    Food was delicious, I had the filet, cooked perfectly. My mother had the crab cake and beet salad, she cleaned her plates as well. Only complaint, the broccolini was cooked too long, it had a semi-burnt flavor.
    The Tasting RoomResponded on December 13, 2023
    Thanks for the 4 stars - we strive for 5. The broccolini is roasted and the tips can get a little charred in the roasting process and will share the feedback with our chef.

    We did not eat here, but we did catch the end of a live music performance and drank some fantastic wines with Martina! She was kind, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, honest and helpful! We enjoyed chatting with her and we met a new cook who showed us some photos of some of the food items he had worked on that look delicious! If we had not had dinner before arriving we would have absolutely ordered a meal! Will absolutely be going back!

    Susie was literally amazing( & very funny), this was our first time ever and she made the experience so great! We felt comfortable and cared for by everyone working. And the food was to absolutely die for, and you definitely have to get desert (we got the tiramisu). It’s the perfect spot for a date night, celebration, or just a dinner out because you deserve it, you wouldn’t regret picking The Tasting Room at all.
