My wife and I ate at Tastebuds last night to avoid the Mother's Day rush. This small, family-run restaurant in Mattapoisett Village was excellent! The atmosphere was casual and friendly, and our server, Tricia - who teaches special needs children by day - was friendly, personable, and efficient. My wife had a hard time deciding between several great-sounding seafood options... More

We met another couple and went to dinner here on their recommendation. We had reservations for our party of four and were quickly seated in the rather small dinning area. The meals were very good and the service excellent, however as we were having conversation and enjoying after dinner drinks we felt quite rushed as they wanted our table to... More

Tastebuds is the best restaurant in Mattapoisett if you are looking for fine dining. Plan ahead as the restaurant is small and you will usually need reservations. The only negative is that it can be a little loud since the tables are so close together.

I could not have been more impressed by the mouthwatering food cooked by corey zacharri. The steak melted in your mouth and the flavors were impeccable. Make a reservation though, it is not large capacity.

My wife and I decided to lunch at Tastebuds, based on a recommendation from an acquaintance. We are so glad we followed his advice. We went there on a Saturday 11/15/2914, around 12:30pm. The decor is modern and comfortable. Not a lot of tables, maybe ten or so. Very clean. They're may have been two or three occupied tables when... More

We have come by ourselves and also brought friends. There are 3 specials each lunch and dinner. We've never been dissatisfied with food or service.

This is a small place and sometimes seating is limited but if you can get in you should be well pleased. They do a nice job in delivering a great product to their customers. I believe the menu should accommodate most as well as the casual atmosphere.

My friend and I had visited Tastebuds over two years ago, and I wrote a wonderful review for this restaurant at that time. She and her family experience the Sunday Brunch very often, so it was our turn to go together. I chose the Rib Eye Steak on Toast Tips with two poached eggs. I ordered the steak medium well,...
