Good food and ambiance what else do you need..

Taste of LA is really an institution in Quezon City when it comes to soulful food and ambiance. Inside you feel like you are tucked in your quiet corner happily drinking and eating your time.

I've been coming back to this restaurant for years to order the butterflied shrimps, oyster Rockefeller and spinach pizza. I just never get tired of them. It is a nice place to unwind and have drinks at the end of the day. Their steak, osso buco & hainanese chicken are good too. There are days when both their front and... More

About 500m from the corner of Timog and Roces is this gem of a restaurant, a family favorite (and secret) for 15 years. Its dark and romantic, with a date vibe. My standard order is the butterfly shrimp, a ceasar salad, then lightly toasted lamb chops with garlic rice, and I end with the date cake. All delectable and worth... More

There were four of us and we opted to have a light dinner. The lighting created a cozy and warm atmosphere. It felt very homey and relaxing; a great place to unwind and have a conversation with friends. I read with trepidation the experience of one of the reviewers about a very inconsiderate group which seemed to think that they... More

Taste of LA has been here for more than 2 decades. Food is still good but the interior of the restaurant has barely changed. I wonder why??? I think it's time it gets a make-over.

Had dinner there last night. Was told by a waiter that my son was not allowed in the restaurant. I apologized because I didnt know. After dinner, waiter rudely grabbed my sons drinking glass away from him because he said it might break. Good food, rude waiter and remember.....Kids not allowed.

Had dinner with friends I haven't seen in a while and decided to try this restaurant after hearing good reviews. It was supposed to be an intimate dinner where we could catch up with one another's life. Food was great. We started with thin crust pizza which was very good. Followed this up with an Asian salad and some grilled... More

The best baby back ribs I ever tasted! Pizza is a must try too! Forget about the Cheese Fondue, not worth it! Service wise? Poor, oh no, very poor!

Like many of the other reviews, this is definitely a good place to bring a date. The ones complaining it was too dark should do their homework on the place. My date was a local and said there were celebs eating at the place the same time we were. We ordered a 3 cheese pizza and some seafood pasta. Both... More

I just discovered this place last week. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there and I can say it was pretty good. The restaurant is quite dark but it's supposed to be romantic, right? We ordered their spinach pizza, salpicao rice, pasta marinese (similar to seafood marinara) and a margarita. I can say that we made a good choice... More
