Taylor's Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed. This was the third time we came here for dinner. The previous two visits were very good. We thought this was going to be our go to restaurant when we are in town for dinner. However, this time, it was different. My wife had the special, which was quail. The quail was cooked right and tasted very good. But, the cornbread was charred, like charcoal, on the bottom. I had lasagna with braised veal. When the waiter served it he cautioned me about the hot iron skillet. I cut into the lasagna, did not see any steam. The first bite, it was lukewarm. I thought maybe I just happen to get a unevenly cooked section. So I took another section, the same. I touched the skillet, it was just warm. I touched the center of lasagna, lukewarm. I told the waiter that the dish is lukewarm. He took it back to the kitchen to reheat it. Few minutes later, the same lasagna that was lukewarm before came back. It is warm this time, but just warm. Part of the Brussels sprouts garnish were burnt black. Seems to me the chef stuck the dish back into the oven and broiled it. I touched the skillet, it was just warm. If there was any cheese in this dish, I did not see any cheese strings. I took couple of bites, I was hungry, but can’t finish this lukewarm food. When the waitress came to take the plate away, we pointed out about the burnt Brussels sprouts and that it was still not hot, her reaction was equivalent to I did not cook the food, don’t blame me attitude. The charge was taken off the bill. But, I would have preferred a hot meal. Is reheating a dish that was not cooked properly the first time a proper thing to do? Who was doing the quality check that day? Well, we are going to look for a different restaurant.
We love Taylor's Market and have now introduced our friends(who are foodies and Ellas's and the Kitchen fans) to it .....and they liked it
very much.....it was her B day and we were treated with kindness and grace... Thank
you, we will all return soon.....Thank you....Lynne
The sommelier suggested an incredible Italian Barolo that complimented my duck breast as well as my husband's ribeye. Both dishes were outstanding. We also shared a kale salad and a cheese platter. Everything was on point. Ambiance was romantic and cozy. Service was excellent. We will absolutely return!
This was our first visit and we loved it. We were on our way to the movies so we were short on time. The restaurant was so lovely we almost decided to stay and enjoy it and skip the movie. The service was excellent and they got us out in perfect time without feeling rushed. A few of us just had a salad and a starter and they were satiated. The salads were generous and full of fresh seasonal ingredients. I had the scallops, which were perfect, and included mushrooms, carrots, and quinoa. My husband had the ribeye which was flavorful but a bit fatty, as it often is. Others had the burger and loved it. The chefs use loads of interesting mushrooms, fresh herbs, and seasonal vegetables to accompany the entrees. The wine list was varied, extensive and had a good price range. You can go there and eat great food for a modest price (salad and burger) or go all out with three courses plus dessert. We didn't have time for dessert this time but we will definitely go back and spend more time. The best part: it's quiet enough that you can actually enjoy a conversation! The ambiance was rustic and charming.
Simply wonderful food and always new specials to be savored. The pork chop is out of this world and the burger and fries are terrific, (though a bun from Roma's bakery would be a welcome change from the current bun). Everyone at Taylor's is welcoming and highly professional. They could write the book on how to create an inviting ambiance.
What a great find! Great menu, excellent service, good wine and beer list (if they don't have it, they'll go next door to their adjoining market to get it!). Three of us had the ribeye, done to each of our specs perfectly and one had the swordfish which she reported was 'out of this world good!'.
Taylors sourcing, freshness, and preparation are simply better than its peers. Every item simply tasted better than Ive had almost anywhere else, and our server made excellent suggestions and clearly loves food and enjoys his work. Just go if you ve never been, thank me later.
Went to Taylor's due to availability on Open Table. It was such a great discovery. Delicious meals had by all 4 of us. The tomato/mozzarella was a hit due to fresh mozz. Great options for all courses. For a vegetarian option the Johnny Cakes were delish with a little bit of heat in the sauce! Will go there again for sure.
Food was superb! My wife had the duck breast and I the scallops. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and wonderfully seasoned. The scallops melted in my mouth. The accompanying local vegetables were also perfectly cooked and seasoned. The service by our server, Mitch and the other staff members was just the right level of attentiveness. Dessert was a cornbread pudding and lime sherbet which was the perfect end to a memorable meal..We will definitely be back!
I made these reservations for our 39th Wedding anniversary. I think Taylors is a pretty neighborhood place, the service is friendly and the food is fresh. When we entered the restaurant the waiter directed us to sit at a badly situated table next to the entry door. I explained To him that it was our wedding anniversary and he gave us a better seat and a glass of complimentary bubbly. That was a great thing because we were going to walk out if they didn't do something. as it was, the bad table was still empty throughout the entire evening. Did they treat my reservation that way because of Open Table? I've been there many times and they have always been nice. Why would they do that to a costumer? Saving the best seats for better people then us? Also, My streak was difficult to cut, even with the special steak knife.
We had a very attentive waiter who made suggestions and gave details on preparation of dishes. Generous portions and great flavors. Weather was nice enough that large windows were opened which almost made us feel we were dining on a patio. I would go back again.
Service was very good. Food was delicious. Especially loved the Strawberry & Herbed Goat Cheese and the Roasted Asparagus salads. So many delicious flavors can be tasted in these salads. Dry Aged Rib Eye steak was so tender and loaded with flavor. Didn't care for the red onion and proscuitto bread pudding that accompanied the steak.
The night I had dinner at the restaurant, the air conditioner was not working properly which made the dining experience somewhat uncomfortable. While the decor is charming and nice, it is a little too noisy for me.
I would definitely go back--especially for the scrumptious salads.
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. I arrived 30 min early and had flower that the staff arranged in a vase for ou table and the anniversary ring was give to our friend and head chef to put on a preordered dessert to be brought out at the end of the meal. My son was my wife's chauffeur, all the way down from Pollock Pines, to the restaurant! The staff was very accommodating and helpful and friendly! Chef Casey is top notch and very talanted with all that she does their! Highly recommend Taylors Kitchen . You will not be disappointed! Thank you Taylors Kitchen and chef Casey!
