Creative Food and Good Selection of Craft Beer on Tap

We enjoyed the food. It had flavor and style. The many choices of specialty beer on tap boosted the rating from a three to a four star.

Have been coming here since it was Taste Mezze. Owners changed but the food remained excellent. atmosphere is nice. Appetizers and entrees are very good. Kids menu is excellent. Love the pork belly and the spicy feta dip! Also have a good selection of drafts and bottles. My only complaint is that a couple times we have attempted to go... More

Used to go there more before the new owners, but we save it for a special night out because it's noisy and crowded - small place with a lot of tables.

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.

Again, Taste Gastropub in Olney hosted a large group from our nonprofit organization providing residential services to adults with developmental disabilities for Thanksgiving Dinner. 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

Recently held a private family event at this great restaurant. The food, service, ambience was all wonderful. The owner was especially gracious and accommodating. Hope to return soon and frequently.

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
