Went for a family celebration. First time for me, but I'll be back. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the service was great.

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

We went on Friday, out third trip to Taste and were embarrased we had brought a guest. What had been a nice experience with good food had changed. Our waitress clearly had other things on her mind as after we had finished our appetizers we had to ask her if we could possibly order our dinner now. When asked she... More

I personally reached out to offer a refund on their check and also invited them back for us to try to get their meal perfect. Our chef will cook what ever they would like , we will get it 110% perfect and treat them to a complimentary breakfast, lunch or dinner. We do not want our guests to not be... More

We read reviews and it was on the way to a concert and thought why not, despite our tight timeframe. So glad we did. We didn't even care if we were late to the concert. We ordered their scallops and their 20 minute chicken. I'm not a big chicken fan but this knocked my socks off. It was on a... More

We had a bit of trouble finding Taste Gastropub, whether due to our GPS of the fact that it is located in an unassuming strip mall, I don’t know. It was worth going around the block for. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. Some of the apps we had were the trio of fritters (crab, goat cheese,... More

This place is amazing. I took my girlfriend to eat there for Valentine's Day. We were amazed. We had a preplanned 4 course meal that consisted of an amazing variety of foods. The chef prepares portions that are very filling but doesn't leave you tired or overfilled. The quality of the food was amazing and the service was excellent.

I really enjoyed my dinner. We started with some apps, including a meat plate and a cheese plate, and both were good. The tuna tartar was excellent. I had the lobster risotto for my main course, which was very flavorful. I'd recommend it. We had some great wine as well. The meal exceeded my expectations!
