First time here with family before a concert & we had great drinks, appetizers & entrées. My Hangar steak was cooked perfectly at medium rare over smashed potatoes. I ate every bite. My niece had the braised short ribs which were so tender and flavorful. The other two entrées were scallops which were cooked perfectly but it was a small... More

I had the calamari salad and short ribs and both were excellent. The presentation and the taste were wonderful. The restaurant is small but nicely decorated with wine bar theme. The staff is very friendly and made the dinner an enjoyable evening.

I have only been to Taste for lunch, but I was happy with the food both times. The lunch menu is varied with sandwiches, salads, and a variety of entrees. There seems to be something for everyone on the menu. This is a good place for business lunches, as it's relatively quiet. I frequently recommend this location for working lunches.

We left the restaurant Taste feeling this is truly a labor of love for owner, Jason and his staff. We had a delicious meal there Saturday night with some friends and it was just a great experience. From the great flavor, to the presentation to the terrific service by 'Meg', we know we will be back again soon! Call ahead... More

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 were looking for a new place where we could sit outside. Taste advertised an outdoor patio so we decided to give it a try. It was a Monday night so it wasn't too crowded. 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
