Been wanting to try this - glad I did

My wife and I went up for a weekend wine tasting. Saturday night we had my birthday dinner here. We started with the mushroom cigars which came highly recommended and I see why. Delicious. We both had beef filets with these ridiculously good fried potatoes. Crunchy on the outside but soft and hot... read more

We had so many people recommend this restaurant and drove out to try it---WOW, what a disappointment---the appetizer's were extremely expensive and I wouldn't even consider it to be one half of the actual portion it should be----The food was just okay--not horrible, just very, very average at about 4x the cost---I would never return and never recommend...

Excellent upscale food in a lovely setting. We had lunch with a great cheese plate, mushroom cigars, salad and a pasta dish. Good Prosecco also!

I celebrated my December birthday at Taste Restaurant and Wine Bar and I could not have been more pleased. Although it is an hour or so drive from Sacramento, I highly recommend dining here for the great food and extremely efficient, friendly service. Arriving a bit early for our 6:30 pm reservation, we were immediately shown to a spot in... More

First of all, know that this restaurant, while not inexpensive, is truly amazing! The food is unusual and delicious. The service is incredible! The little town of Plymouth is right at the mouth of the Shenandoah Valley...Amador's wine country. Taste is a wonderful way to end a day of wine tasting!

We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and wanted someplace nice with quality food, but didn't require us to dress up. Taste was all this and more. Business casual dress, warm welcoming service from our waitstaff, where Michael was our waiter. He was quite knowledgeable about the food, sauces, ingredients, etc. He directed our meal fabulously.

One of the Top 100 Wine Restaurants In America in 2014 according to Wine Enthusiast Magazine, and it is best (mandatory), if you want a table, to make a reservation. Another option is to sit in the bar where the complete menu is served, but arrive early to ensure a seat. The Food, wine and service are always excellent.

We decided to go up to the gold country for a day of wine tasting in Amador County. A local from a wine shop recommended Taste for lunch. After sipping around we found the place. It is located on Main Street in Plymouth. No one wanted a full lunch so we ordered appetizers. The Mushroom Cigar is a popular item... More
