We hadn't been there in many years, and were pleased with both the new décor and the menu. Our server was very friendly and helpful, explaining things carefully and being most sensitive to food allergy issues. The goat cheese pepas we shared for a starter were delicious, the cod was absolutely fantastic, and the hangar steak was cooked to perfection.... More

Just spent the evening with friends at Taste and have to say that after reading their menu on line I had high expectations. I was not let down. Our waiter was welcoming and gave us excellent service. We started our meal with Chop Salads with breaded fried shimp for two of us and Peppas stuffed with goats cheese for the... More

Taste is always a good choice for an informal and reliably good meal. Their menu is relatively short, but offers sufficient variety to suit any palate. The atmosphere is relaxed, QUIET, and comfortable; the servers and the owner are very friendly, efficient, and accommodating. You can always count on a good meal. Every time my wife and I eat there,... More

We arrived early so were offerred the Happy Hour menu in addition to the regular menu. Beer $3, Wine $5. Some yummy reasonably priced appetizers.... More

Three of us ate at Taste this evening, my second visit. The food was very nicely prepared, fresh and good quality. It's not cheap but the service is leisurely and nobody turfs you out if you choose to linger after your dinner.

After moving in the neighborhood,I was excited to find a nice resturant that served nice meals with a real chef at the helm. My first visit was very nice. A little pricey,but I love great food so a couple extra bucks to treat myself makes me feel good.. I sat at the bar and the bartender was very attentive at... More

Taste is my favorite spot for lunch. White table cloths, attentive service and the most divine food. I can't tell you much about the whole menu because I always order the seared scallops with cauliflower mash - it is the perfect portion of the most delicious bites! Love this place!

We've been to Taste a few times previously and always enjoy returning. We started with the Buffalo shrimp appetizer which was very good although a little spicy for my taste. For our main courses we received a large portion of couscous and also the braised short ribs. Dessert was a large creme brulé and just like our main dishes, delicious.... More

We have probably dined at Taste 5 or 6 times in the last two years, both as a couple and with family. Last night was a family dinner and celebration. Service is always excellent and so is the food. The special last night, fresh pasta with crab meat was very good but not great. Everyone else loved their meals. Their... More

Taste got better Taste in North Haven never really busy. Not sure why. Love the parking. The food is consistently good, but wish the menu changed more frequently or there was a better variety of specials. The chief keeps a lot of his favorites on the menu. He has made some additions weekly now, usually about 3 new ones a... More
