I had the pleasure of attending a truffle wine dinner at Taste Gastropub last night. The event featured a 5-coures feast that was highlighted by tasty truffles and excellent wine. While the event drew a crowded and the service required delivering each course to all of the diners at once, the staff did a great job at accomplishing swift and... More

TripAdvisor - you've done sooo well, but you failed me on this one. Taste is ranked in the Top 3 restaurants in Olney, MD (a small suburb of Washington, DC), but after our meals last night I'm wondering why? Our waitress, Kelly, was prompt and friendly, but that's all I got for this place. The "ambiance" here is unique --... More

We went during the week and got there around 6:00. There was one other table occupied. I ordered the Greek salad and my husband got the pork belly and we were going to share the cheese platter (with one cheese) and the artichoke pizza. I asked to have the cheese first since we were hungry. After waiting about 25 min.... More

The servers were either friendly or hard to hear. The food was either enough or too little. The cheese plate arrived with olives instead of nuts as advertised. That would be fine, except if you don't like olives. The portion of cheese were miniscule, the bread was good. Some entrees were average sized and others barely made a dent in... More

We reached out and offered to have the guest back into the restaurant and to have a complimentary dinner for a VIP Experience with our Chef Lenny, we stated we will do anything possible to make sure they feel like they received their money's worth and to make them happy. The individual who made this review declined our offer. More

Nothing to say it's always the same boring experience for such of small place they should have more exciting things to offer other that the same old fish with different name

Food was excellent and well presented. The chef actually could prepare a med rare cheeseburger. Husband had the scallops which were tasty. House white wine for $6 a glass is a good Pinot Grigio. This is a hip place with an excellent bar scene.

I was visiting a friend and thought I'd look up restaurants in the area. This topped the list and it did not disappoint! It was far more refined and delicious food than you usually find in a bar(thus it's name gastro-pub as oppose to just plain 'ol bar probably). I had the fish and chips and it has to be... More
