Both waiters are delightful. They made my family feel welcome. Out with Granddad visiting us from Britain we are eating out every third night at the minute. Excellent wine and atmosphere, but where is the art? Not a picture in sight - bare walls :-( Our young children were served fish and chips. Great. Except they were frozen chips. Really?... More

This was our first visit to Taste, in passing, as we tried to book for an evening meal the same day (and quite rightly were told they were full - always a good sign in my book!). So we stayed for a spot of lunch and it was delightful! The service was excellent, the food tasty, plentiful, well-presented, plus it... More

My wife and I have been a regular dinners (average once a week) at Taste for over ten years and in writing this review, it needs to be taken into account that (a), many years ago we operated a licensed restaurant facility for over 10 years and (b), we've dined in many of the more exclusive restaurants (Michelin star rated)...

Bread in everything, nasty oils, fried potatoes and salad drowned in unfortunate dressing. The clientele here is old to very old and they seem to like the food. I have been several times with different friends and find the menu sadly lacking. A pretty old building kept nice and clean.It is easy to access for very old people. Its caught... More

Each time we dine here it's a great experience. Superb food beautifully served by pleasant, helpful staff. The prices are fairly high so it's suitable for a special occasion.

Excellent food served with similar high quality service. While the menu is not large it mor than adequately covers all tastes. I will definitely be returning for both that special night out or the relaxing weekend brunch. Highly recommended

Always fresh, and food cooked to perfection. Gary and David are great hosts and it's always a pleasure to go and have a nice meal whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner.

This is one of my most favourite restaurants in Wellington, and why we visit it so often (8 or 9 times a year). Whether it is for dinner or weekend brunch, the food is always fabulous, the staff are friendly and highly efficient, and the atmosphere is just great. We've gotten to know Gary and David, the owners, quite well... More

We had the pleasure of dining here last week. Very tasteful décor,good use of mirrors, well chosen ambient background music and excellent service. A menu with gorgeous choices for everyone. After internal arguments with myself, I had the chicken liver pate - there is usually never enough toast when I have ordered this in other restaurants but in this case... More

It is approx three years since I last wrote a review on Taste although we still visit there 3 -4 times a year including our Company Christmas Dinner. The Owners Gary and David who both work front of house continually maintain high quality food and ambience that the rewstaurant is rarely not full every night of the week. It is... More
