An eclectic twenty seat restaurant featuring seating overlooking the open kitchen and an intimate environment. Chef Carl Dooley utilizes French techniques to showcase both seasonal ingredients and international flavors in his four-course prix fixe menus. In addition, there is a menu of light snacks and à la carte dishes paired with choice wines and craft beers at the standing wine bar.

Please note, specific tables may be requested but cannot be guaranteed.

Reservations highly recommended. Prompt arrivals requested, as we cannot guarantee seating when diners are delayed by more than 15 minutes. Private parties can also be arranged upon request. We recommend booking these at least three months in advance.

The wait staff here went above and beyond, taking our coats when we arrived. They also had some great recommendations for us for other foodie destinations in Maine for our honeymoon.

There is an interesting vibe when you walk in the door of this unassuming gem. We were fortunate enough to get a set at the kitchen counter, and Chef Carl and his team were happy to engage in conversation while working to get the orders out. The menu is limited to two choices per course, but the team is willing to accommodate dietary changes (like vegan and vegetarian meals). The team of three chefs danced and performed flawlessly in a tight space, plating out beautiful courses. Chef Carl uses an intriguing mix of local ingredients, European flair, with some Asian touches. Every course sang with wit, whimsy, and outstanding flavor. We're looking to visit next time we're in Boston.

Season to Taste didn't disappoint. We tried the full tasting menu with wine pairing. All the food exceeded expectations - great flavors, interesting ingredients. Love that the restaurant includes gratuity in the menu price. Generous wine pours with the tasting.

We had an absolutely spectacular deal And experienc at The table restaurant. Every dish was eligible he presented and created. The only disappointment was that they did not have an espresso/cappuccino maker. Otherwise it was close to perfection. It was but inexpensive But it was very reasonable for both the quality quantity of both the meal and the wine pairing.

Great food and we did include the wine pairing with our meal - we highly recommend adding the wine pairing to the menu. Really unique and perfectly paired wines. This is a farm-to-table spot with a four course prix fix meal with two choices for each. We ordered both choices and shared all the dishes.

It was an amazing experience! The wait staff was friendly and professional. I sat at the bar right in front of of the chefs. We chatted and they served and explained the dishes. Best seats in the house. The food was perfect. I thought the cost was a bit much at first but it's all inclusive including tip, only extra is wine. Very much worth it!!

Season to Taste food is always delicious and different. They mix tastes that you don’t think will agree — but they always are great. It’s expensive, but worth the cost. The clam and pasta with corn was very good. The wait staff was friendly and explained all of the choices in the wine pairing very capably.

We have experienced many tasting menus through out different citys, the theme for this evening was Mexican, we very much appreciated and enjoyed some of the different collections of flavors and everything was presented beautifully . For the wine pairing we felt a bit more information was needed to fully understand the items that were suggested therefore my husband tried only one wine offering which was not to his liking. It was also extremely warm as it was a very hot day even with great effort they could not keep it cool enough in the restaurant, for me it affected the experience.
Overall we very much enjoyed but probably will not visit again as there are so many choices when spending this amount, for us we would prefer something a bit less rustic.

This was our second visit to Season to Taste. It is now our favorite restaurant. It is expensive but a good value because the food and service are great. Since our first visit last September, the restaurant has eliminated tipping so the listed price of a a meal is higher, but the total cost of eating there seems the same. I think this is a very good change and I applaud Carl, the owner-chef, for instituting it.

Prix Fixe menu with five dishes. I really really liked one of the five. Three more were pretty good, and one was fine. For $100 I would expect the food to be much better. It seemed kinda convoluted and all over the place. The service was great though, the music was bangin, and staff was cool and friendly.
