About

At Taste, origin matters. We first source our ingredients within a 200 mile radius, giving preference to Michigan vendors. This allows us to bring fresh, high quality components into the kitchen and to develop relationships with local farmers. We source our seafood direct-from-dock and rotate these selections based on quality and availability.

We are passionate about our food and our service. Our menu reflects the season and showcases our chef's ambition to build creative yet accessible dishes.

The perfect bite paired with the perfect sip can truly elevate any meal. We have carefully curated our wine list to accompany our cuisine. Taste's signature craft cocktail menu represents our ever expanding spirit selection and our dedication to using the freshest ingredients even in our drinks.

While we love this restaurant it is EXTREMELY noisy when full which is most of the time and needs some sound panels. For a table of six we had to shout at each other :/

As good as it was, and it was very good, it was just a little too expensive for what it is and where it is.

I ate at Taste Kitchen before for our anniversary in June. My S/O and I came here again to eat since we enjoyed the food so much. We are moving to CA so we made sure to dine at Taste Kitchen one last time.

That night was cold and the Wolverines just lost to Ohio State at home. A sad occasion for Michigan fans.

We ordered a pot of peppermint tea and a couple of entrees. Diver scallops and crispy skin salmon.

We like the food. It's well-balanced and tasty. Every bite is flavorful and sauces complement the main ingredients.

Service is attentive and courteous.

We will surely miss Taste Kitchen.

We arrived on time for our 8:00pm reservation, but we had to wait quite a long time for a table to open up. They offered free drinks while we waited.

The atmosphere and the food were great! The problem was service- we were the FIRST tables sat for the dinner service at 5:00pm (and we even arrived a few minutes early). Apparently something happened to our dinner order and we were not served dinner until after 6:45pm (supposedly they had to remake something). We were very clearly headed to the football game that evening and cannot imagine what happened to the FIST order of the night and the fact we were told about it after we were wondering where the food was- they said it would take an additional 15 minutes to remedy the situation and it really felt like at least 20!?! They took the dish off of our bill, but they could have done a little more, noticed sooner and made more proactive decisions (again, FIRST TABLE of the night!) We had all come to A2 from out-of-state for a big reunion weekend and were really disappointed by the service.

Tate Kitchen prepares delicious food, and provides excellent attentive service. I had the Halibut, and it was delicious, as were the appetizers. Only complaint is the noise level. It is not cheap, so good for special occasions.

It is too bad that even after telling the server to make sure the fish is not overcooked, the halibut came out a bit over-cooked.

Good local food prepared well. My duck was cooked perfectly medium rare with a not too sweet Asian flavored sauce. Small but well chosen wine list. The interior is wide open so not the most intimate or quiet atmosphere. One of the best dining options in Ann Arbor.

Beet salad was nothing special, I expected the dressing to be flavorful; it was not. The quail was excellent, good flavor and rich duck taste for the au jeau. Scallops were cooked very nicely and corn sautée was yummy but pork berkshire was bland, no deep flavor and the sauce was only oily tasting. Very disappointing. I read the revues on Trip Advisor and was excited to try it but due to 50% of the meal being nothing special and for the money spent, not worth returning. The service was excellent, our waiter, very friendly and willing to let us try many wines before making our final decision.

Absolutely incredible food and service! They truly went above and beyond and we were there on a very unique night with some difficulties on the street and they handled the whole situation calmly, professionally and with an appropriate sense of humor. Could not have asked for more!

Just dined here for the first time and LOVED it!! Went on a Friday night and most tables were occupied. It is lively inside, and had a fun atmosphere. The waitress we had was very good and attentive. The food was amazing! I had the tuna poke and my husband had the beet salad to start...both were excellent. I had the panko encrusted whitefish for my entree...it came with vegetables in an amazing coconut lime sauce, and it was delicious! My husband had the halibut and it also was fantastic! We were impressed with everything and will definitely go back again...one of our new faves in AA!

We were celebrating our anniversary and decided to try Taste for the first time. I had read good reviews but had never been there. We had a great dinner: the duck was amazing! I just wished they still had the matcha creme brûlée for dessert as I had seen in the menu online- instead they had a coffee one which was good. We ended up with 2 desserts although we ordered only one but the waiter surprised us with our second option as well, charging us for only one! Nice atmosphere too - overall a pleasant experience!
