I've eaten at Taste a number of times now, and it just gets better and better.

On my gosh! Who knew a gourmet restaurant like this existed here in the foothills? We were blown away!! We ordered the Tuesday special, two items for $22. The first course was a pickled beet salad with endive, pickled mustard seeds, and hard boiled egg served on a bed of pureed beets. The presentation was beautiful, and the taste was... More

We enjoyed dinner with friends at Taste. Excellent service, great wine list and some fun menu choices. We had 2 of three tenderloins arrive a bit overcooked, but these were re-done immediately and compensation for the delay was dealt with fairly and seamlessly.

We had our Anniversary dinner at Taste and they not only were excellent, but our server went above and beyond to make things special for us by letting us taste some wines we inquired about plus a glass of Proseco. So very nice. I had the fix prix meal which was outstanding and my husband had the Swordfish with Spanish... More

My wife and I heard about Taste, and decided to make a reservation. We were not disappointed. The décor, service, food quality, wine list, all amazing. It is a treat to have a restaurant, of this quality, in the Sierra foothills town of Amador. We will be back. Thank you Taste.

went for lunch, but left feeling hungry .. as did all our party, particularly the teenager ! Super tasting food, but 'micro' portions. Good service, but customers could be treated with a little more respect, rather than being talked own to, but maybe because I'm British and not used to the subtle ways of California.

We ate here on a recommendation from one of the wineries nearby. The mushroom cigar appetizer is something the restaurant is known for, and delivered as expected. However while the quality of ingredients was high, our entrees were disappointing in their strange or bland mix of flavors. The duck (tasty and cooked perfectly) came with bland and forgettable sides. The... More

We have dined here four times over several years, and each visit was superb. Quiet atmosphere, personalized service, variety of selections, locally sourced ingredients, all make for a wonderful experience.

One of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The mushroom cigar appetizer wrapped in filo pastry melts in your mouth. It was not part of our fixed 3-course menu but well worth the addition. We sat at the bar for dinner and enjoyed some informative chat with the bartender, knowledgeable about local wines/wineries. After years of... More
