The service was good, but we did not enjoy the food. The meat tasted off, and the falafel sandwich was more like hummus on a pita. We came to enjoy the Jazz brunch but were overrun by loud, rowdy college kids taking advantage of the bottomless mimosas.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday. My husband ordered the Mahi mahi sandwich with steak and mushroom soup and I chose the mussels. Both meals were fine, but nothing spectacular. I requested, but never received, appropriate cutlery for eating the mussels; I finally just pulled them from the shells and ate them with my fingers. My husband requested a second glass... More

I had dinner here along with a group of friends. The food was fantastic, especially the bacon wrapped scallops. Bar service was exceptional and overall service was excellent. I'd highly recommend this restaurant as my experiences have been wonderful.

The food, as always, was fantastic. The restaurant was filled to capacity, as this event is something to which everyone looks forward every year. Thanks to the warm and wonderful staff for their welcome, their attention,... More

When you drive into the typical shopping center this wonderful gastropub is in you would NOT expect the level of commitment that is presented with every dish. I absolutely recommend this place, no questions. They have a seasonal menu and the only dissapointment you will get from this place is not finding something you had last time, because it was...

In late November my family rented out Taste Gastropub for a private party for our friends and family. I was very impressed with the set up and style of the bar. Not only was the food fantastic, but the bar staff (from servers, bartenders to the manager and owner) were all so kind and went out of their way to... More

On November 24, my husband and I along with several of my students had a wonderful experience at TASTE. The restaurant that evening served Thanksgiving dinner for organization Jubilee, a nonprofit that works closely with some of the county's mentally challenged residents and their caregivers. We had the privilege to meet, serve and socialize with these individuals. The staff was... More

My favorite restaurant in Olney, Maryland. Exceptional atmosphere, food, drinks and service. Menu selection is amazing, so much to offer. Family owned business and they pay special attention to each individual client. Prices are really amazing for the quality of the food. Make sure you reserve your sits; they normally booked on the weekends. You really should try this place.
