Very surprised to learn that fries were cooked in bacon grease. The restaurant would not use fresh oil to accommodate vegetarians.

Nice environment overall but really cold! Also some of the lighting was too bright. Food was good but my portion of polenta was pretty small for $17.00.

The restaurant menu is limited for dinner. Didn't know it was located at the bottom of the Sheraton Hotel. Breakfast menu looked better, but the food was not.

Tasty meal, satisfactory, but not exceptional. Greek Salad OK, Steak Frites good, but served with waffle fries - unusual. Salmon good, but pricey. Brownie dessert enormous, sweet and delicious. Good coffee. Friendly & conscientious server, especially considering the late hour of our arrival at the restaurant.

this was the only restaurant open for lunch within walking distance of the Seaport Museum where a matinee musical was playing. The lunch menu was very limited.

With nothing the average priced lunch item being $15 or higher, this place is overpriced. None of the menu choices is terribly creative and the service was a bit lacking as well. I was especially disappointed when I ordered a quesadilla to-go as I could not dine in and instead of the typical sides of guacamole, sour cream and salsa, I was given a bottle of ketchup. I didn't discover this until off site so couldn't correct it. As I was at a conference in the hotel, I ended up eating here more than once. The other disappointment was being charged $10 for a "caprese" salad that included about a 1/2 cup of mixed greens, 1/2 tomato and 2 golf-ball sized pieces of mozzarella cheese! It's a good thing I wasn't looking for a full meal, and only something light, but it was a joke to be charged $10 for something so puny. While the food tasted fine, and it was not an unpleasant dining experience, I would not voluntarily choose to eat here in the future.

I didn't like that no one greeted upon arrival at the restaurant or directed to a table -the table wasn't clean and the food was just ok not as tasty as I'd hoped. Overall not really a place that I would revisit

I have to say, when we first arrived at Taste, we had a bad impression. It was freezing cold, there were hardly any other customers and the atmosphere seems a bit sterile. The food and service made up for all of that. They immediately turned down the A/C for me because I was cold and the service was warm and friendly. The barbecue chicken flatbread is a must! All of the food we ordered exceeded our expectations and the bartender made fantastic cocktails. My recommendation: Give Taste a chance.

The service was nice and accomodating. I used open table because I was not familiar with the area, was there for a graduation and they were able to accommodate 15 people with no problem but the menu is very limited and the drinks are expensive.

We all enjoyed our meals, although the menu is very limited. I had the Cobb salad on the recommendation of the server, but it didn't live up to others I've had. My friends all had steak and reported it was delicious, as were the special mashed potatoes, but one complained that the steak wasn't cooked as she had ordered. It was surprisingly empty for a Saturday night. The ambience
is okay, it's a nice bar. The wine list was limited, although specialty cocktails were available. Still, I would recommend it if you're
looking for a nice bar in Society Hill. Maybe it would be better to order sandwiches and burgers rather than a full dinner.

We made last minute valentine's reservations and were a little concerned that they still had seating available. It's in the Sheraton and parking is only $7 when you eat at the restaurant, which is a pretty good deal. When we arrived, the restaurant was near empty. A few people sat at the bar and about 4 tables had patrons. We were told we could pick anywhere we wanted to sit.
We started off with Mediterranean Olives with Roasted Almonds ($5) and the Tomato with soft mozzarella appetizer ($9). The olives and almonds were very good but the other dish had just a few thinly sliced wedges of tomato and lots of mixed greens. We also shared the Cobb Salad ($15) - excellent. Cheesesteak was very good but pricey @ $15. Strip steak cooked perfectly.

The food was very good for our dinner. We both had the sirloins steak which was cooked just right. Our appetizer was tasty and our cheesecake for dessert were excellent. The restaurant was rather quiet. We sat at a table near the bar scene in the restaurant. It was not crowed and the service was very attentive. A bit pricey but overall was a very enjoyable dinner.

We also ate there for breakfast the next day. We both had the buffet. It was good but the food was only lukewarm at best. French toast was cold.
