Returning to a restaurant years later can sometimes be disappointing...but that was NOT the case during our recent visit to Taste. Our meals were superb and even better than we experienced four years prior. The food is prepared and presented in a fashion that highlights the incredibly fresh ingredients. Rarely have we enjoyed every aspect of a meal as much... More

Wow! We did not expect to find such an amazing restaurant right down the street from our hotel (the wonderful Plymouth House Inn)! We had a fantastic experience here - wonderful service, amazing food and a great atmosphere. This restaurant is sure to be a highlight of your Gold Country visit!

We came here for my parent's anniversary. I called to make reservations, and when I did, the person on the phone asked me if it was for a special occasion. Obviously, the answer was yes. The inside is very quaint and stylish. We were seated immediately and our server greeted us promptly. We were taking our sweet time deciding on... More

Taste is on Open Table's list of the top 50 restaurants in the entire country. Reservations are a must and you will probably need to book some time in advance. It's very expensive so be prepared. But the food is worth the price--excellent and innovative dishes with a wonderful wine list. A special occasion place, but you'll want to make... More

My wife and I spent a few days in Amador County tasting wines and exploring the area. It became clear that relative to the San Francisco Bay area, dining options were more limited, and particularly so on the fine dining end of the spectrum. When visiting wineries I ended up asking the staff what they considered the best eateries in... More

Our neighbors insisted we have dinner at Taste on a recent trip we made to Sutter Creek. What a pleasant surprise to find a restaurant of such quality in a town of a just few hundred residents. I honestly believe anything on the menu will exceed your expectations. The presentations are a work of art, the service is exceptional, and... More

It was a Saturday, a beautiful sunny California day, and we had secured reservations. The taste Restaurant, located in the small foothill town of Plymouth is a quiet town with not much to do.

A little pricey. Lunch is a better option. Make reservations. They have a good wine selection as well.
